Grey has two or three 'established' identities, and a few more 'occasionals' with contacts about the place, but for any new job, there will usually be a new 'disposable' face to go with it.
Here's a random Freeport thought. I was skimming through my pdf copy of Cults of Freeport looking for ideas, and I came across a throwaway reference to a ship called the Bustluscious Beauty.
Yes, folks. The Bustluscious Beauty.
Random Freeport Thought: One of my favorite things about Freeport is the "Halfling Benevolent Society" it's like the mafia except a LOT shorter.

"Alenda is far more evil than me. She's 87% evil, and I'm only 63.5% evil." -- Goblin Girl

The Society might still exist, but it won't be the same...Originally Posted by HoboThis quote is hidden because you are ignoring this member.
-Hyp.For the most part, though, individuals of exotic races in Freeport will be replaced with humans. Humans of varying ethnicities, to be sure, but humans nonetheless.
And Ricardo's story:
It wasn't fair.
"Surely that's not your husband?"
Ricardo Murcielago threw an exasperated look at the woman clutching sheets around herself.
"'Off to Mnar,' you said. 'Secret mission,' you said."
She just shook her head. Ricardo tried to remember how far down the street was below the window on this side of the mansion. Possibly too far to jump. He was still considering when the door burst open and a pair of watchmen faced him.
"Do I LOOK like a Lord Xian?"
To his surprise, Lady Xian pointed and snarled, "Yes, that's my husband! Take him away!"
"Hubba hubba wha?"
It just wasn't fair. THEY were supposed to be scamming HER. Ricardo shook his head in disbelief of the treachery of some people, refusing to be taken in by a perfectly good con. He didn't waste his breath in discussion, though; the jump through the window had given him a headstart, but these guardsmen were being well-paid to pursue him, that was obvious.
"Where is he... that's not the plan!"
More became clear as the guardsmen burst out of the front door moments later.
"I'll run interference for your brother," Grey told her, taking on Ricardo's voice and rapidly discarding clothing. By the time the last stitch hit the floor, Carlotta found herself face-to-face with her brother in all his naked glory. "It's on you to salvage something from this mess!"
And with that, the false Ricardo burst from the alley to scamper off in the opposite direction to that taken by the original, sowing confusion and chaos into the pursuit...
I'm confused now.Originally Posted by barsoomcoreThis quote is hidden because you are ignoring this member.
In the original assignment post, Hobo said:
... which makes it sound like Carlotta's story includes Lemmy and Lash - the two people who have Carlotta among the names to the right of theirs.On the left is your character name. On the right are the two characters you are assigned. You need to work out how you were involved in the adventure of both of those characters.
Then, in the clarification post, Hobo said:
... where he seems to be agreeing with her that the people who insert themselves are Ricardo and Lash - those to the right of her name.She writes her sentence, and then the two folks mentioned in the post write in somehow that they were involved.
Now, taken simply, for me it doesn't matter, since I'm associated with Lemmy and Ricardo in both directions. But for everyone else it does. And I had the impression that Ricardo's story included Grey and Carlotta, hence my referencing her in my addition...
The original assignments:
Lash: Lemmy, Carlotta
Ricardo: Lash, Grey
Grey: Ricardo, Lemmy
Carlotta: Ricardo, Lash
Lemmy: Carlotta, Grey
Which, I think, means:
Carlotta's Story + Lash & Lemmy
Grey's Story + Lemmy & Ricardo
Lash's Story + Carlotta & Ricardo
Lemmy's Story + Grey & Lash
Ricardo's Story + Grey & Carlotta
Or, with completed, pending, and awaiting opportunity markers added,
Carlotta + Lash & Lemmy
Grey + Lemmy & Ricardo
Lash + Carlotta & Ricardo
Lemmy + Grey & Lash
Ricardo + Grey & Carlotta
Hobo, does that look correct?
Yes, it does. Sorry for the confusion!
