How you like to play I
Many people participate in a role-playing game in different ways. Please mark the statement that matches what you generally like to do in a game:
[___] Standing around and watching the rest of the action.

How you like to play II
We've found that most people use a combination of three general approaches when role-playing a character:
The PROBLEM SOLVER wants to figure out what's going on, solve puzzles, investigate clues, follow up on plots and check off every item on his list of goals. A PROBLEM SOLVER is more likely to want to know what happened to the ship than reminisce about that wonderful vacation on Ormando.
The ACTOR wants to make things happen with her character, play to the audience, act out the dramatic scenes, have loud arguments, gesticulate wildly, and fondly reminisce old times. An ACTOR could talk for hours on just how darn good her last layover on Ormando was, who she was with, and what happened.
The ROLEPLAYER wants to identify with the character, internalizing the character's goals and acting and reacting as they would, regardless of what else might be going on. A ROLEPLAYER would remember Ormando as their character would: a party for some, a lifetime of employment for others, and an old anecdote for the rest.
On a scale of 1 (not at all) to 5 (this is how I play):
I rank myself as a ___ as a Problem Solver when I play.
I rank myself as a ___ as an Actor when I play.
I rank myself as a ___ as a Roleplayer when I play.

The Essay Questions:
This is where you have a chance to tell us more about yourself, through your answers. We pay a lot of attention to these questions, and they can make a big difference. Don't skimp here!
Note: If your answer amuses us, we may post it, with your name, on the website, unless you explicitly tell us you don't want your name used.
If you could play any character from science fiction, who would you be, and why?
Your plush starship cruiseliner is hurtling through hyperspace heading towards the head office on a planet where happiness is mandatory. What position do you hold in the crew, and what are your duties? How do you make the passengers happy?
You're standing in front of the last two-person escape pod with a priest, Captain Kirk, a seven year old blind girl and a six armed, nine foot tall, shocking pink alien from the planet Froob. Who do you put in the pod and why?
