  1. Emanuel Francis ,, ,, Once the star architect who defined a generation, his talents are but a grim reminder of all he lost. High concept: jaded former star architect. Trouble: he let others pay for his mistakes until there was no one left. ,, Phase One A part of it may have been the sleep deprivation, but when he showed him the finalized model of the building, Emanuel Francis could see something in his former teachers eyes that hadn't been there before. Now he was the master. He had stuck to his ideas and found the thing of beauty in the non-space of self-conflicting requests and impossible requirements. Some purest form of beauty had opened up to him and let itself become manifest. Aspect: There is perfection, true beauty. Let me show it to you. (inviolate) Touchstone: Titanium plated X-Acto knife with cap. Always in breast pocket. Phase Two Emanuel Francis guest-stars in the story of Uriel Arcadia. Uriel Arcadia used some of the windfall from the Intel job to arrange for a save house with style. He managed to get to the architect of a high-rise just as the final stage of construction was ramping up. "You know, this is highly unusual. I can easily arrange for you to acquire the apartment off the books. But keeping everything electronic about your condo air-gaped from the rest of the complex will get me into micro-management hell. This will cost you more than just money." Emanuel Francis leaned across the table. "I know a man of talent when I see one. This will cost you a favor. Do we have an agreement?" Emanuel Francis' second Aspect: Aspect: People are complex tools, but infinitely useful if you know how to wield them. Touchstone: Book of matches from the restaurant they met at. Phase Three Emanuel Francis gets a push towards the complex and Damien Drake makes an appearance. For the first couple of days there were rumors, that the Fielding Tower had been the target of a terrorist attack. The elegant skyscraper, crown achievement of Emanuel C. Francis, collapsed like a house of cards. Within an hour the renown architect was in front of the press, putting the blame at the structural engineer. As if it hadn't been clear that the life he had build for himself was over, horror author Damien Drake got into touch for details on 'what can go wrong with skyscrapers' for the final book in his series. Emanuel Francis' third Aspect: Aspect: I know who is to blame and it certainly is not me. Touchstone: Transparent screw and nut. Skills +4 Crafts +3 Will, Lore +2 Intimidation, Notice, Investigation +1 Resources, Rapport, Burglary, Deceit Stunts: " I can see what was the process behind this" Crafts: Can make an overcome roll to find a weakness in or altogether bypass an obstacle by sensing the structure and history behind it. Usually involves the process in which the obstacle was designed or constructed. Refresh: 3 The apartment at the complex is in the fifth floor. It has these two aspects: Extremely well organized. Too well, actually. Sometimes you can hear noises from the vent in the bathroom. Maybe voices.
  2. The thought behind that self-compel was, that he not only put salt into Lanas wounds (the woman we collectively tried to console, I think) but also presents himself as a terrible human being to the people, that could be his only hope to escape from the complex. Sure felt to me like Emanuel Francis got in his own way and inconvenienced himself. But the GM is the judge of course.
  3. Emanuel Francis is using Lana to coax a reaction out of the manager. Is willing to use his Aspect: 'People are complex tools, but infinitely useful if you know how to wield them.' (The one tied to his encounter with Uriel Arcadia)
  4. made emanuels response to duncans approach slightly less autistic
  5. bloody hell. totally missed that part of your post! remeber the first part but not the part concerning Franics. sorry about that. will see what i can do about that.
  6. I enjoy it. slow as it progresses. would be glad if we could see if things pick up when the story unfolds. next week and the week after I will be offline. will complete my scene till then.
  7. I thought the apartment of Emanuel Francis was on the sixth floor, not the fifth. Could change that though.
  8. Sorry about that. Forgot to follow the IC threat. Will post soon.

  10. Adjusted my third Phase. Like this version better. I like the character creation. Looking forward to the gameplay.
  11. Phase Two Emanuel Francis guest-stars in the story of Uriel Arcadia. Uriel Arcadia used some of the windfall from the Intel job to arrange for a save house with style.

Emanuel gets his final Aspect: Aspect: I know who is to blame and it certainly is not me. ,, ,, ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Gabe, SalmonMax and Mike: are you fine with these stories?
  12. The vernissage of the biggest exhibition of Howard Tulchinskys work yet was well underway, when the artist himself finally arrived. At some point Emanuel Francis, the architect of the building grudgingly congratulated him on the success of the party. The lobby had been modified to house the slender but two story high abstract statue and its many protruding spikes and shards. At that exact moment a woman in her twenties on the third floor gallery screamed "I will fly with the lights", jumped and impaled herself on the center piece of the exhibition. Reporters immediatly closed in to capture the artists reaction to the suicide. The architect quietly left through an service exit. ,, Aspect: Has a fanatic following. ,, tquid, are you fine with this portrayal of your character? Does the nature of the complex prohibit the aspect from being relevant, Mike?
  13. Saw Phase 1 as the first step on a downward spiral that leads him to the complex. He was at the top and I would have used Phase 2 and 3 to elaborate on how and what he lost. Sure I can push my former Phase 1 back. How about this: Phase 1.01: A part of it may have been the sleep deprivation, but when he showed him the finalized model of the building, Emanuel Francis could see something in his former teachers eyes that hadn't been there before. Now he was the master. He had stuck to his ideas and found the thing of beauty in the non-space of self-conflicting requests and impossible requirements. Some purest form of beauty had opened up to him and let itself become manifest. Aspect: There is perfection, true beauty. Let me show it to you.
