Do you mean you can already see the demise of his first character?

LOL, was referring to the 2 characters I have asked each player to create prior to start of play

Though this could be a first, a Cthulhu character dying during creation like in earlier editions of Traveller...

Tony: Would you like to roll on my new Background table to see how you get on? (Roll a D6 and then I'll show you the table...)

It seems you don't want to roll on my alternative background table...

Well here it is anyway, in the style of original Traveller and MERP Criticals

Character Background table (roll a D6)
1 Character impersonates an out of hours electrician. Accidently touches live wires as it is dark. Dies of shock from 2000 volts
2 Character tries to reason with friend about threat of an item recently acquired. Dies from bullet trauma to the head
3 Character wrongly assumes protected by family business. Falls underneath Tank. Very messy…
4 Misplaced bravado. Assumes himself invincible whilst targeting Cult Ritual with rifle. Shantak has lunch
5 Character tries to reason with bar staff and asks too many questions. Nice baseball bat scar, skull crushed
6 Character dresses for Masquerade ball and puts on the Mask of Hayama by mistake. Gazes upon Azathoth in all his glory. Brain melts

I will say that It's not unreasonable of me to expect a reasonable attendance rate during the rotation, otherwise you are just taking up a space that could have gone to someone else. If I deem your attendance rate to be unacceptable, you'll forfeit your place in future rotations of this campaign.

I'd also like to echo Mike's expectations in respect of Horror on the Orient Express. I will have quite an investment, in both time and money, in this campaign. I don't think it unreasonable therefore to expect a firm commitment throughout this and future rotations in return. If it isn't working for a player for some reason, then we will have to have the discussion about that player leaving the game. This is for everyone's enjoyment, both players and referee.

Noted Sarge
as you know my work commitments have been significant over the last 8 months. That should change for the better in April, so I will be around more. if it looks like this is going to change, and I will be unavailable, I will let you know and someone else can benefit.

NB: I did role, and by some freak of nature, a single roll of a d6, came up with a 1....

then a 2...

then 3....

then 4...

at that point I smelled a rat, blamed Hugh and started working on character number 7...
Red Wine should always be opened and allowed to breathe....

if it doesn't apply mouth to bottle resuscitation.
