To start off, who is planning on playing an XSDF staff member besides me, Frost, and Zombie?
I think I'll have 3-4 soldiers and one civilian.

Remember, only make as many characters as you can handle, and don't expect to be able to spend a ton of time with each if you have a lot.
Don't take this as being aggressive, but keep that in mind for yourself too :p You did have the most characters last time.

Well, I'm exhausted and having a bad day. As for me, the only reason me and zmby will have more characters is because we're playing the essential staff and antagonists. Plus, I don't have a job or anything like you and Dahl do.
Maybe we could spread some of the Essential Staff and Some of the Antagonist characters between everyone. I don't want it to feel like you and Zombie are the only two who can play Villians. Besides, I know how tough of a time Zombie and you are having right now, taking so many characters and running all the villians might put too much pressure on you.

There is one person that will be assisting us, but no. I don't like being the tone police here, but I don't want everyone playing the antagonists for several reasons. It disjoints the story by muddling what the enemy's goals are, it confuses things by having everyone playing both sides, and I simply don't want to have to deal with people getting angry at each other for power gaming in fights, or being dark or cruel to other people's characters as villains.

I see what you mean Frost, but I think we should leave it up to them. They are durable and really, there are the ones who are usually around the most and post the most, so it is only fair for them to do it in my opinion, though I think they thank your concern none the less..

And we're not even gonna start this story until pretty much four weeks from now, or something like that. So we're going to have plenty of time to relax while I'm on my trip. Not going to break tradition, though. Thus far the story has (mostly) been told by the GM(s) playing the antagonists. We're writing a story that is the players fighting the enemy, not the players fighting other players.
