Someone was saying the other day how much they liked DSA's "Urban Unease". I agree - its quite good. Reminds me a bit of Tanya Huff's novel, "Summon the Keeper" or A. Lee Martinez's "Chasing the Moon".
I haven't done a full build for it yet, but - if I'm being honest - here are the Friendly Tenants that I'd actually meet:
* The Hallway Wanderer - I've always gotten along with little kids.
* Girl Behind the Door - Wherever I go, I always seem to meet that personality type: depressed, good at heart . . . Okay, being dead would be new (as far as I know), but otherwise I've met a ton of people like that.
*Scarlet Youth in the Painting - She needs books to study from? My place looks more like a library than an apartment (although I'm not "Read or Die" bad). It would be hard for her NOT to visit, if she was serious about her studies, and I don't mind sharing.
*Yarn Spiders - I'm not a big fan of bugs, so I tend to be nice to spiders. I'd probably be a little freaked when they first started spinning messages to me, but hey - I'd adapt.
*Apartment Janitor - Again, I always seem to end up on good terms with the janitors, maintenance staff, etc. wherever I go.
*Delving Adventurer - I know a ton of medievalists, cosplayers, and the like. We'd probably meet when I stopped him in the hall, and asked if there was an anime convention nearby. Based on the description, he seems to have a good personality, so we'd probably keep talking.
I can make an argument for or against most of the rest, although there are several who catch my eye: Ancient Witch Irina, the Gardener, the Chessmaster, the Noir Radio Host, all of the Inhuman Tenants. . .
However, I'd probably have a hard time meeting the Marxist Mice. I'm kind of a cat person, so either my cat would scare them away . . .or they'd hunt my cat down - which would not exactly endear them to me.
