Basic enough. How about a "reason for being there" section? Or would that be something to be left to each player's digression to learn in-game?

Reason for being there could be important for motives... so we might want to leave that open.

Name: Vincente Lenoir
Age: 61
Occupation: Luxury Hotel Manager
Bio: Vincente is the manager of the renowned Lenoir-Dreistadt luxury hotel, acquiring full ownership 20 years ago after Jakob Dreistadt's untimely death in a car accident. Now the most coveted hotel in Europe, Vincente has established his public image as that of a family man with solid values, often seen in high-brow venues with his wife Agatha and his two daughters, Claire and Vera. Few know of the more sordid side of his activities involving the hotel's more clandestine facilities, and his involvement with Dreistadt's "accident"; those who learn tend to quickly disappear, but regardless, rumours abound that Lenoir has intentionall broken many backs on his road to success, and it has paid off for him in spectacular fashion.

Name: Leopold Buckingham
Age: 25
Occupation: Layabout heir.
Bio: Leo "Bucky" Buckingham is the soul heir to his father's vast fortune and estate. Currently living the high-life in London, Leo is a total fool, with no sense of perspective, or concept of working for a living. He currently survives on the huge allowance given to him by his father each month. Once, when his Butler took emergency leave to attend his mother's funeral, Leo was seen walking around town with his jacket on inside out and his shoes on the wrong feet.
However, below his bumbling and amicable exterior lies the heart of a malicious 5 year old, willing to do anything to get his way.

This murder mystery sounds interesting. But how will we decide a GM?

Robert Valentine II
Age: 29
Robert Valentine is well heard of as a sophisticated man of society.His father, Jonothan was born in Egypt to a local Clerk from the British Empire, and an Ottoman woman who remains unknown. Jonothan's father, convinved that war between Britain, Russia and The Ottoman Empire was imminenet had abandoned all ideals of nationality and spent his sizeable inheritance (for Robert's Grandfather was a rich man as he rose through the ranks in Egypt) on weapons, to sell to the highets bidder. When WWI started in 1914, thier prive went up rapidly and Valentine The First became a rich man. When he was mysteriously killed while staying in Vincente hotel, he left his entire forune to Robert, who became a high man of society, playboy and layabout. He has written a few works of hedonistic, pessimistic philosophy and there is a firm rumour that the man is a Satanist. He has also published a few articles on Social Science. Part-Turk and Part-British, many of his fellow high-fliers look down on him. He dresses exclusivley in a black suit with black shoes and black hair and carries a Silver Cane with him at all times.

Name: Jack Remmington
Age: 41
Occupation: Railroad Tycoon
Info: Son of the famous Micheal Remmington, Jack inherited his father's railroad company when he died a few years previously. Following in his father's footsteps, Jack has kept the company under the same kind of management his father left it in. One policy that Micheal always insisted, even as his health waned, was to personally appear at each station opening. Because of this policy, Jack is now in this town waiting for the grand opening of the new station which is only a few days away.

Name: Frederick Garrison
Age: 42
Occupation: Large Casino Chain Owner
Info: Frederick was born into a poor family with little food or money, and lived up to the age of 7 n his horrid life, living in the slums and only just eating enough to get by. He was put up for adoption when his father left and his mother couldn't support him and his three brothers. Soon he was adopted by an upper-middle class couple and after love and education he developed an interest in reading. This love evolved into an interest in business and the stock market. After his education he skipped college and took from the money his parents had been saving for college for him, instead using it to buy into the popular "Lucky Beggar" Casino, eventually becoming the majority share holder and over a period of 8 years, he raised enough to buy the casino. He kept the name but turned what was once one casino into a successful chain, becoming a multi-millionaire over a further two years.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

I'd say we do a drawing of the people who have decided to join. Like we each pick a number and then get a random number generator to give us a number.


Also here is my new improved character since we are all following that format.

Name: Ronald Kidd
Age: 52
Occupation: Coal Tycoon
Bio: Ronald Kidd was born into a wealthy American family and always had the best of everything. He was spoiled rotten and had very high standards for everything and everyone. His father paid his way through school to compensate for Ronald's lackluster grades and at the age of eighteen he studied business in New York. Forced by his father, Ronald joined the army and spent many years climbing the ranks and embracing strong military values. In 1917 he joined the War effort at the rank of Staff Sargent and came out with the rank of Master Sargent. After the war ended Ronald retired from the Army and pursued his own dreams. He used the skills learned during his time in the Army and built up his coal empire without the help of his father. After many successful years he married his competitor's daughter and purchased his company.

In recent years Ronald has been raising his family as a single father after his wife's passing and is training his son and daughter to take over the company. Ronald is very stern and expects things to get done, but is not unreasonable.

Ok, except his parents wouldnt have been saving money for him to go to college, because in those days everyone who applied to university got their entire tuition paid by the government, but standards were much higher and University education was less in demand.

Name:  Srg. Crose
Age:  54
Occupation:  Retired police Sargent.

Bio:  Born Herbert Crose to a moderately wealthy family, he had all the comforts, most things he could want, and a self centered mind that ran in the family.  The only thing that he couldn't change to his liking was his first name, which he could never stand, so the first chance he got he joined an occupation that would allow him to be called by rank instead.  The military was to dangerous, he didn't have the people skills to be a doctor, so he joined the police.  Though he was lazy and not particularly bright, he rose in the ranks because he could bully his partners and subordinates into giving him credit.  He retired early when he felt he had gained enough prestige for people to call him Sargent for the rest of his life, and continued to live off his family's wealth.  Although he is not as rich as the others, they know him through the various crimes he is credited as solving.
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.
