The String Theory Staff
This is a listing of the current and active staff on String Theory, along with an overview on our areas of expertise and knowledge, what we take control over and what we are here for. We have streamlined our duties into two areas, our Primary specialties and our Secondary specialties. The purpose of this is to give the players (and ourselves!) an idea as to who to turn to for specific issues, questions, and requests.
It should be noted that these are specialties rather than what we only ever do - we share the workload pretty evenly and so the majority of us will look at apps, for instance, or have a handle on most thematic questions. So please feel free to approach any of us about whatever you need. However, the table above and explanations below can serve as an indicator as to our strengths and preferred functions, so hopefully that is helpful.
Our primary function, overall, is to keep the game working and players playing. Our secondary function is to rock.
Brooklyn is current head wiz of String Theory, which basically amounts to overseeing the staff mechanics or lending a voice (or final say) if one is needed. If you have need for her in a headwiz capacity (such as complaints or anything you don't want to put into a +request), then please feel free to contact her via page or @mail. Her secondary specialty is GMing - running scenes of a larger scale, whether in or out of storyline and volume arcs. If you require assistance in scene-running, you are welcome to contact her whether for direct involvement or ideas.
Her key faction is the Department of Evolved Affairs, and if you have any questions concerning it or Homeland Security, a faction that is largely staff run, Brooklyn can strive to answer them or act as an NPCer regarding them. She can also assist with other factions, notably Ferrymen, the Linderman Group and what remains of it, and formerly Vanguard, as well as the informal non-faction that is the crime population.

|According to American, east coast hours…|
|Sunday - Thursday||Barring random evenings of going out into the world for liquor and social animaling, you can expect Brooklyn to be online at around the 10: 30 PM - 11: 00 PM EST range and onwards into the wee hours. The joys of having full-time employment.|
|Friday and Saturday||Round abouts 6 PM EST and onwards, maybe earlier if needed, and again, barring jaunts into real life.|
|Sunday - Thursday||Occasionally, I will be able to get in a little earlier, especially on Thursdays — just ask me.|
|Post mid-May||Major schedule shift of unknown proportions|
|Post April 3||Hours adjustments due to daylight savings|
You can page or @mail Brooklyn in relation to any of the above, or if you simply require a staffer for brainstorming or general help.
Chinatown helps out with Player Relations, the Wikidot, and the catalog of other abilities where all wizards converge and overlap. She is available most evenings, in the timezone CST (EST - 1).
By the first thing, player relations, the reader may take to mean that if or when there is some sort of interpersonal problem involving players or staff, China is probably going to be tapped to assist with a meeting or other mediation, and whereas all staff members will try to make themselves available for consultation with your concerns, she is likelier to have a direct hand in their resolution.
Chinatown has been Wiki-ing for some time now, and while she doesn't know much CSS or server-side, generally she can get layouts looking the way you want and is available to create basic character pages and logs or assist with errors in tags, formatting, linking, etc. For more complex or larger issues such as structuring catalogs or suggestions regarding the Wiki's overall layout, she will be able to forward you to another, more appropriate party.
She also helps fachead players in the infamous knitting circle of terrorists, AKA Phoenix, allied with the Ferry, one of the game's more active pro-Evolved and protagonist factions. If you would like to find a place or pick a fight with the burning bird, help is here.
All that aside, Chi-town has also been known to throw NPC pirates and +requests and applications at players and characters who want them. GM work, theme questions, charting out RP hooks or potential character storylines, creating icons and other Photoshop work, voting in on +requests and reading new character submissions are all within the scope of her duties. You know. The usual stuff.
NPCs Chinatown plays include: Mu-Qian the healer/resurrectionist, Baxter the cop who can FLY, and the artist formerly known as Auggie, storyline as yet unconcluded. She also occasionally puppeteers Noah Bennet and Tyler Case as needed. Also, pirates.
Ellis is the staffer whose primary responsibility is staying on top of player applications and ensuring that they are returned in a timely manner. Players who have a concept in mind but aren't sure if it's thematic or just need some general help with the process should either page or @mail her at their convenience. Presently, she is also the staffer in charge of NPCing Daniel Linderman, Bob Bishop and Angela Petrelli should any of these characters be required for plot purposes. Players seeking to get their characters involved in either the Linderman Group or the Ferrymen should consider initiating contact with her so they can be roped in as desired, but general queries about how to get characters involved in other plot arcs and storylines are always welcome as well. Other active NPCs include: Robert Caliban, Sasha Kozlow and Juliette Wright.
Availability varies between days, but she can most easily be reached after 9 PM EST. If online, consider on-duty.
Forged from solid steel and sixty feet tall, Manhattan brings a galvanized robot justice to the String-Theory administration. Hailing from the distant world of Awesometopia this rock and roll robot dispenses plot and explosions with equal measure. Due to being made of cold and calculating computer parts designed for nothing but the dissemination of story and pyrotechnics, Manhattan does not handle player relations that cannot involve flame throwers or grenades.
Manhattan's iron chassis handles String-Theory's major plot development and is the head designer of most storylines and volume arcs. He is also responsible for the handling of a vast majority of NPCs, including NPCs on request from players requiring ones for a scene. Primarily an indestructible GM made of plotonium, Manhattan will throw story at you until you drown happily in it.
