OK, I'm beginning an outline for a short (5-6 session) Fading Suns D20 game. This would be a serial game that is very character-based, the whole game an extended story arc. My FS one shot I ran got a thumbs up from cczernia, and I know I can do the setting justice. Straight D20, I don't want to spend time modifying the system. Characters will start at 5th level. It's still in the early planning stages, though and it would be a while before play begins.

So who would be interested, and what class(es) do you want?

In order to flesh things out, I need to know what kind of characters you guys would be interested in. Here's the choices, the first 2 are mandatory and need to be picked by someone, they're essential to the plot.

Human Noble: From one of the major houses.

Guilder:Either Charioteer (star pilot or merchant), Engineer (technician/dealer in tech), or Scraver (anything from Indiana Jones to a well-paid theif or spy)

The other options:

Brother Battle: Badass warrior monks. Definete Church diehards.

Priest: Just what it says. Uth Ortodox (a tender of the flock), Eskatonic (they scour the universe for mystical lore to defend the masses), Almatheans (order of healers), Mendicant Monks (they stay far away in monestaries away from church politics and occasionally come forth to save some souls). Temple Avesti is off limits to PCs.

Psychic: Up tp 2 levels may be taken in this class. But there will be a definete and sometimes serious bias against psychics if their true nature is dicovered. But some in-play bias sounds like fun to me.

Soldier: Does what it says. Most likely a wayward merc or Noble's retainer.

Starwolf: Badass space barbarian. Vuldrok (big Norse types) only. there will be bias against a Starwolf. More RPing fun.

Techie: Would most likely be multiclass with the Guilder class, possibly with Starwolf. Does what it says.

Theurgist: Up to 1 level may be taken, only with the preist class.

Knave: A thief

Edit: Included knave (option for the undecided only)

Personal favorite bits of a/state:

The Hundred Block War: High tech warzone in a clockwork setting. Gotta love corporate warfare.

The Shifted: Scary shit. Big mystery.

The prison I forget the name of: A huge prison. No one talks about the lower levels, there were problems there in the past. They sealed them of with concrete. If you listen closley you can hear a faint tapping coming from the other side of the concrete...

The Burghs: Very diverse.

Dog food: People eat dogs. Better than the toxic waste fish. There's a couple of places that sell human meat as well.

No matter what you do you're still fucked: You ain't saving no one. The one constant for the majority of The City residents is misery. Medicated with TV.
