This storybook looks really cool! I'm not sure what my character would be, but could I join?

This storybook is really unique and kind of awesome! I may claim character depending on how the next few days go

I've looked the roles over again, and I think I know which one I want to write for! Can I claim one of the Gifted spots? I can get a character up by the end of this week.

@Terian805, would a character be able to have the ability to take on the forms of other people if they were a Gifted?

That's great! I have another question. My character, Adrian, first found the Dust City when he was ten. A Lucid who was older than him explained what was going on, but midway through the conversation Adrian's form shifted. Could that Lucid have been Finn? Adrian would have run off before they could finish the conversation, and they wouldn't have seen each other since then.

Yeah that's a nice idea. How old do you think Adrian could be at the time of the storybook? That'll kind of dictate how old Finn was at the time, because I imagine he'd be a bit of a know-it-all when he was younger and exploring with his sister.

Ah I apologise I just saw your character @saentiel, and that would definitely work for the two to have met.

Great! I'll go add that into his character profile.

Hang on @saentiel i've just had a thought. I forgot that I wanted the Gifted to be kind of unknown, before the time of the storybook, like they happened to be coming out of hiding, so it wouldn't really make sense if Finn saw Adrian using his powers a while ago. Obviously they could've met, but I've taken the aforementioned section out if that's OK.
