Hi, I’m Myra! So, I guess, after making my system, the Pembers, as if they are a single character, the Inmara decided to start making sheets for us individual Pembers. So, here’s my character sheet! Though, first, I should include what they wrote in the forum entry, because it kind of explains things:
Entry #8 is Myra Pember, the first of the Pembers to front in our story Systems’ Out! The way we think that a player would play these characters is that before the characters receive the nanite terminals allowing them to express themselves externally as separate people, they would play using only the System’s character sheet. But once the system is released from having to interface solely through their vessel’s physical presence, they’d use a separate character sheet for each member they are willing to try to play, literally playing multiple characters at once, each one tracking their XP separately. The system as a whole would still have its original character sheet, and XP earned there would remain there, because the group is still an entity in its own right, not a person but a corporate entity. This is complicated, but we’re pretty sure we could play such a group of characters ourselves pretty easily in any game.
We’re thinking about doing something a bit different with the Flits, to showcase another way of representing plural systems in Cortex.
Anyway, Myra Pember:
name: Myra Pember, Student of Metabang
Myra Pember is possibly the most cheerful and outgoing member of the Pembers. Xe is curious and enthusiastic about life and is a consummate socialite. Xyr true passion is dancing, however, with or without an audience, and loves to get lost in the movement of xyr system’s vessel, this would become xyr next milestone once one of the others is fulfilled. In the beginning of the story, when xe becomes excited about the possibilities of the neural terminal, xe is mostly excited on behalf of what it means for xyr headmates and for the chance that xe may get to share Network with them as if they have separate bodies. Because that means xe may get a better chance to introduce them to xyr outworld friends.
