Let me tell you about Xianna'fan!

She is a purple Twi'lek thief (it's a Star Wars Edge of the Empire game) who only ever wears a smuggler's trenchcoat that has pockets that defy all known physics. She was born on Ryloth shortly before the Seperatist Crisis/Clone Wars. Her father was captured during this time leaving her mother to raise her and her sister. Her mother was a mechanic and worked with the resistance and when Xianna was 15 the Empire arrested her mother. Xianna wanted to leave Ryloth and gathered enough money for her and her sister to buy passage on a ship, but her sister stayed behind last minute to join the resistance herself. 

9 years later and Xianna has made a living as a thief, mostly cat burglaries. She does too many party drugs and avoids her feelings at all costs. She's been arrested a handful of times, and even remembers a few! She once was arrested because during a job she got stuck in a doorway with her then girlfriend/partner who was a herglic (a big ol' whale species).  Recently she got in some trouble for seducing both partners in a marriage in order to gain access to their valuables. She's lost some toes in an airlock incident,  has been officially declared dead by the Empire, and has acquired a few definitely-not-Sith artifacts. 

She is a mess and trash and I love her. 

These are all so good! But Zombie Rae Jepsen is my favorite one.

Yes.

Concerned, but not surprised. 

The girl with the coiled hair runs ahead. She sees a tree dead of rot. 

Mundane.

I've noticed that we roll dice far more often in our "casual" non-recorded games than we do when recording our AP. And I think that plays heavily into the concept of Play As Performance. When recording we stay in character for longer periods of time and are more likely to move the plot along narratively. We're more concerned with character interactions and having a coherent plot. Rolling dice can interrupt that dialogue and we often find ourselves skipping it in favor of role playing it out. 

In our non-recorded games we're more likely to go off on whatever weird side adventure catches our fancy or spend 45 minutes taking to the possible villian about Hot Potckets. There's still the performance aspect, but it's a performance for ourselves, without having to worry if an audience cares or could follow along. We feel like we can roll dice and "interrupt" the story/performance more frequently. 

Hello! I'm Laura (she/her, they/them)(@Cheerio_Buffet). I'm a bi nonbinary woman, although it's never been officially proven that I'm not three cats in a trenchcoat. 

I started non-gaming role playing in middle school, made a number of DnD character sheets in high school (to be told "oh, girls would probably just be bored so you're not actually invited), and then started truly playing RPGs 4-5 years ago. 

I'm a player on Tabletop Squadron, a Star Wars Edge of the Empire AP podcast. I also run our Twitter (@tabletop_squad) and do most of the behind the scenes stuff and management outside of editing. 

I've also been SLOWLY working on a game based on reading tea leaves and creating social drama.
