About this character:  Unlike last week, this character (and 98% of the 357 characters to follow) is brand spanking new. The rules set is Over The Edge, but the characters are not all from Al Amarja.

The Doclopedia #8

Over The Edge Characters: Maryellen Baxter
Stay at home mom and mystical craftsperson. Caucasian woman, age 30, 145 pounds, 5’5″, average looks, short brown hair, brown eyes.
Maryellen is a native San Franciscan who lives with her husband, David, and their three children in a large Victorian home in the Marina District of San Francisco. Although she once worked as a bank teller, she now stays home in order to keep house and raise the kids. Maryellen enjoys a variety of crafts, from scrapbooking to beading to her favorite, making masks out of polymer modelling compound. Oddly enough, these masks can confer strange abilities to those who wear them. X ray vision, limited mind control, a sonic shout attack…all of these and more have been attributed to her masks. Naturally enough, this has made Maryellen very popular with the denizens of the San Francisco Edge. Once a month, Maryellen has coffee with her craftshop owning friend, Maxine, and gives her a half dozen or so masks on consignment. Maxine usually sells all of them in a matter of days, often for as much as $500.00 per mask.Maryellen is aware of her masks powers and of the existence of the San Francisco Edge, but she doesn’t let either affect her duties as a mom and wife. The money she makes off her masks goes straight into the kids “college money account”.

In her spare time, Maryellen enjoys shopping at thrift stores, watching Animal Planet, sewing and playing “Cheerleader and Football Player” with her husband.

Mystical Crafting Powers (3 dice)  She can craft beautiful masks with strange powers. (falls into a light trance when mask making)

    Quetzalcoatl?
    His movie SUCKED!

  2. “Cheerleader and Football Player?” To be much preferred to “Taxpayer and Federal Government”, right?

    Sounds like you are having fun.
    Me, I’m working my butt off, and even had to come into the hospital last night in the middle of the night. I’m now at work with 4 hours sleep.
    Which is why my brain isn’t working right, forcing me to ask when the deadline is for submissions for your Worldbuilding Game, Doc?

      The deadline would be tomorrow:) I’ll have a post set up to accept all turn replies. Remember, you are posting your first monthly progress report to your king/caliph/whatever.
      Hope work slows up a bit for you/
