Instant Messager: Ami Mitzu
Offline I’ve played D&D and World of Darkness for about six years on
(some breaks in college) so I’m used to working with structure and
not knowing the outcome of an action until it’s defined by the one in
control. Online I have played Ami/Mercury quite a bit (five
only one of which hasn’t either died due to lack of interest or I
because I couldn’t stand what was going on. This last one has
re-organized to work with a stricter more table-top gaming structure,
the mod controls all the villains and most of the NPCs).
I play her in two LJ rpgs one based on the anime (which I mod and
Luna) one based on PGSM (where she’s currently a bit evil and
I’ve also played Uranus and Neptune, briefly in yahoogroups, and did
short-lived RPG based on Silent Mobius.
Sailor moon Knowledge:
I’ve watched the anime since I was twelve. I was introduced to it in
form, but own most of it fan-subbed (except the first half of R which
never find). I’ve read –some- of the manga, and currently watch PGSM
much as soon as it comes out. I’ve run various incarnations of a
website for going on four years, and try to read up as much as
possible on my
facts and information before publishing them. I don’t know

How did you hear of the FATE RPG?: I found the guestbook post

What interested you, why do you want to play?:
To be honest at first I didn’t. I thought ‘oh, no someone’s spamming
advertise a lame RPG’. Out of morbid curiosity I clicked the link and
to read. I saw how much work had gone into the plot structure, and
things were organized, that set it apart from a lot of the others
which died, or should have done because the organizers were
who really didn’t know all that much about the show, and were
all over the place just to suit them. The plot idea really intrigues
especially the opportunity to role-play with people who are clearly
thorough and care about their participants’ ability to perform to
standard. Such a situation, to contribute with like-minded
greatly increase the quality and enjoyment of the RPG. I’ve seen RPGs
work a lot better when they actually have a structure (imagine that!)
all about structure.
How strong is your stomach? Where are your personal borders on your
sex and violence?
My stomach is very strong. I’ve always had a morbid fascination with
macabre and have been able to indulge that quite a bit lately

Age: (remember, this is Crystal Tokyo) 1016
Hometown/Home Planet: Minato-ku, Tokyo, Japan (Mercury original)
Birthday: September 10th
Eyes: Watery blue. Her eyes are the most expressive thing about her,
she is often reluctant to share her feelings.
Hair: Also blue, a deeper shade.
Height: around 5’1 or 2, slightly taller than Usagi but definitely
than Makoto, at least while they were growing up.
Ami has always been a shy, seemingly reserved person, rather meek,

Rei has always been a little stand-offish, and quick to argue with
Ami respects her intuition and judgment. Although, Rei is one of the
she’s least close to. She knows Rei will usually say exactly what it

vocalizing her opinions.
She’s also close with Makoto. She respects and possibly envies the
girl’s strength and focus; the ability she has to follow her dreams,
love for life, and open, caring nature.
