Well, I was thinking of those who would be coming in the Season 2 of the RP would be members of a group called Valkyrie. They wouldn't be Digidestined like the people from the first RP. They will have a different role. However, they wouldn't be any less important then those from the first RP.
However, I will also be giving people the ability to play certain NPCs, so I would be able to give you those certain characters to play as well. Since you wouldn't be as a frequent poster, you would probably get one or two NPCs to keep the RP moving.
Like I said, you should just wait to be suspicious until Anna tells a real lie. I mean, even if you're a journalist who's interviewed politicians that doesn't magically make you a lie detector. I'd say just delete it for now and wait until she tells a bigger lie (which will happen).
Well Joan is a season journalist. Just because she currently works for a video game magazine doesn't mean she hasn't done hard news; she has interviewed politicians in the past and politicians are constantly lying. She would have a gut feeling when people aren't being entirely truthful or see a hole in their story. I can ask Lysis though about the issue if you want.
