    Default [M] The Men in Black [OOC]

    “Listen, kid,” the man behind the desk, whose features one could not quite make out, took a drag from his cigar, “It’s all real. Magic. Bigfoot. UFO’s with little green men from Mars. All of it. Except, they ain’t green, they ain’t from Mars, and they sure as hell don’t go around picking up rednecks to shove probes up their asses. They’re real, and they pose a serious risk to the greater public. Can you imagine the panic that would ensue if the public found out that UFO’s are extraterrestrial predators with a hankering for human flesh?”

    Another drag from his cigar. “That’s where we come in. You, me, and every other schmuck in the Organization. We keep things quiet, the things that the people shouldn’t know about. We cover up the accidents, patch the breaks in the simulation, so to speak. We ain’t in a simulation. We’ve checked.” He said, with the air of someone who’d explained this a dozen hundred times. “We keep the darkness at bay, protect the rest of humanity, and study the supernatural. If you want out, just say so. We can wipe your memory and send you on your way. But if you want in,” he leaned in close, “you’re in ‘till you’re outta this mortal coil.”

    It was only after you left his office, training booklet in hand, that you realized he had never once exhaled the smoke from his cigar.

    Is there a set year this game takes place in? Maybe just the decade?

    Going to get cracking on mine this weekend. Might need a little nudge in the Abilities arena, but I think I found inspiration for my character.

    Then of course you repeat the hide command with a ‘ in front.

    Great! I didn’t have to change the age a bit. My character is almost as old as yours, just a little over a century younger.

    Got a bit more to add to the history section and I will have covered most everything.

    In case anyone is confused about experience levels, it goes:

    Greenie: Literally brand new. Just finished their training and has been placed into an MTF.
    Rookie: Has been working with their team 6 months to one year, still fairly new
    Agent: 1 to 5 years, has really come into their own as a team member, confident in their abilities
    Operative: 6 to 30 years on the force, truly capable and competent
    Old Guard: 30+ years, has been around for ages and is well-known if not well-respected

    Not really sure how much time my character has spent with the organization, I listed her as Old Guard though based on her 300+ years of experience hunting almost exclusively vampires. The major events in her life they have always been there except maybe in WW2, I’ll have to recheck that one. Still got the WW1 section to write. I’ll get to that Sunday evening/night.
