    I was planning on seven members on each team, but I might have to lower my expectations. Right now, we have three on each team (four on Grant's team once SSP revises his post), and two people who were at one point planning to make characters, although I'm starting to doubt that they're still interested. Discarding the highly improbable case that this RPG becomes incredibly popular very fast, I'm planning to drop the number to five, and possibly to four. Also, I've updated the accepted entries in the first post, so if I somehow screwed up, I would appreciate it if someone told me for fear of my looking like an even larger idiot than I actually am. Thank you!

    It would be rather silly to have a double barrel/single action revolver. The amount of prep time for each shot would be ludicrous. Though you specified that the gun is modified, the AF2011-A1 Double barrel pistol, the only one of its kind on the market that I'm aware of offers two independent triggers as well as a single trigger model. I think you're trying to approach the two independant trigger setup though.

    On the topic of guns, might I recommend that you all SERIOUSLY reconsider what kind of weapons you'll be using? To the two people who chose the Desert Eagle and M1911 handguns, you can ignore the following paragraphs. The highest power guns I've seen in the signups so far are a "hunting rifle" and all the pistols being packed around. While none of these are specific enough descriptions to make a sound judgement on, please consider that most handguns are practically useless to large modern game. If you want to stop a bear, you need to be packing least .30-06 mm ammunition, which already puts you in the scale of military grade rifles and small hunting revolvers. Even then, it'll take a lot of well trained shots to actually do any damage. If you actually want to be effectively fighting a bear, most hunters would suggest you take something closer to .44 Magnum rounds, which has been documented to take down polar bears and elephants.

    If we're talking about dinosaurs, which easily dwarf the largest game we can realistically hunt today, it's not a stretch to assume that it would take at least these heavier rounds to really put a dent into some of the larger ones, assuming this is to be an issue, though tyrannosaurs such as the infamous T. rex and Albertosaurus were found in North America at the time. Even among plant eaters it's not unreasonable to discuss shooting at a Right now it looks like everyone's geared up to fight each other more, or at least to be facing smaller animals (hunting knives and bow and arrows won't take out anything larger than a deer, realistically). Just my two cents on the weapons everyone has chosen thus far.

    I have a question though, regarding the Chronos motives. Are we preparing to go capture dinosaurs from the past? Or should we be more focused on taking the laboratory? Because the technical plot setup for Chronos people is that we're going to be taking the lab, but it seems that we're being railroaded into the late cretaceous period for some reason. For now I'll just put down information for dino-hunting, since we already seem to have Chronos people who are prepared for some kind Western style shootout (everyone's packing pistols and some melee weapons) to take the laboratory.

    So without further ado, my SU.

    Name: Marleena Feyr

    Gender: Female

    Organization: Chronos

    Description: At an average height for a woman her age, she stands at 5'9, though her athletic build adds a lot of muscle weight to someone similar in a much less strenuous lifestyle. She appears to be of Asian descent, having a Japanese mother and a German father, leading to the strange combination of traits which she has from them both. She has dark black hair, and emerald green eyes. Her skin is very tan from having spent the last 10 years travelling around Africa and Asia, and she keeps her hair cut short to keep it away from her face. She as a three lined scar that runs from her left shoulder diagonally across her back, but is rarely seen.

    When she's not hunting, she generally wears a pair of cargo jeans and a simple t-shirt and jacket. She avoids makeup like the plague, but does occasionally wear clip-on earrings for the more social occasions. She's always wearing heavy duty hiking boots to every occasion, because, as she will always tell you, "They're comfortable". She also wears a simple silver necklace with a small part of a rhinocerous horn, similar to the popular shark tooth necklaces.

    Personality: She's very social, and very open-minded about things that aren't hunting. She prefers the company of people when she's not on business, and will willingly help anyone learn how to use a firearm properly. Though she has a personal aversion to people who are unnecessarily violent, her history as a safari guide and hunting guide has led her to be able to ignore most kinds of personal irritation. To her, life is a great adventure which shouldn't be wasted behind a cubicle. She loves the great outdoors, and will go at great lengths to spend time outside, at least a half hour session per day. Spiritually she doesn't associate with any religion, but her time in nature has drawn her to associate with many Buddhist, Jainist, and Wiccan beliefs. She speaks English, German and Afrikaans with great fluency.

    When she's working, her demeanor changes. She tries to maintain a perfectly professional attitude, and while she isn't stone-faced the whole time, most attempts to distract her will simply be ignored. She isn't against hunting as a sport, justifying the claim by the fact that whenever she has led an expedition/killed an animal herself, she finds uses for all the parts, with little to no waste left behind, if possible. She abhors illegal hunting and poaching, never associating with people who plan to kill off a species without attempting to maintain ecological balance.

    History: Born to a Japanese mother and German father in South Africa, Marleena grew up in a very interesting environment. While her mother worked as a cashier in a local shopping center, her father was a safari guide to German tourists in the area. While he did most of his work at Krueger National Reserve, he also would take hunters into sanctioned hunting zones. He and Marleena would often spend weekends together in the wilderness, where her father taught her almost everything he could about survival, hunting, and tracking. Growing up in the household, she learned German from her father, and learned English and Afrikaans through her day to day life. When she was 16, she started accompanying her fathers tours, even starting to give her own tours and expeditions into the parks as her first job.

    When she was 21, she finally decided it was time for her to see more of the world, and with her parents' blessings, traveled through Africa, India, and North America working as a big game hunter and safari guide. Having gotten used to the lifestyle, she rapidly became known throughout big-game hunting circles as one of the best women in the field. She continued to work free-lance, often living in one area for a few months before moving to the next job. A few weeks ago, shortly after her 28th birthday, she was approached by the Chronos group to lead "the most expensive, most exciting" hunting party that would ever be held on the face of the Earth. She has only been told that they are planning to hunt big game in North America, and doesn't know about the group's true intentions. She's being brought along as the hunting advisor and actual hunter for the sortie.

    Thanks for all that info on the guns. I'm pretty useless on the topic. I'll redo my inventory based on that. Anyway, good sign up. The personality section was a little short, but still acceptable, so ACCEPTED.

    Oh, and as to the motive, you would be planning to take the lab. Chronos wasn't planning to go back in time immediately. They were planning to take over the lab, and wait for reinforcements and supplies to take the dinosaurs. Keep in mind that the lab is in the middle of the desert, though, so Chronos would have planned for that.

    @Chthonic Flames: Um...... yes? The only experience I have had with guns has been shooting No. 8 .22 and .762 CTR rifles. So, not much reference. As to the gun, then, can you give me a good one? the one you mentioned sounds good, but can it fire one at time one AND two at a time, or only 2 at a time?

    Well, as far as I know, it's the only handgun like what you described which is MADE to fire multiple shots at the same time. While there are similar Sig Sauer handguns, they're basically just two guns welded together and then modified to allow for double firing.

    The one I linked you to has the option of two independant triggers (one at a time or two at a time, depending on how you pull the triggers) OR a single combinant trigger (both barrels are fired simultaneously).
