World of Darkness: The Academy - OOC Talk -- The Lounge

Recommended Posts

This is for OOC talk not related to the other threads.

On that note, I'll be starting things off Thursdayish - that gives people time to finish up characters. Changes to submitted and approved characters can be made fairly easily until that time; after the start of game, I'll require more justification.

People are welcome to start background fictions now; they will be worth experience, the same as other fictions. Please don't do anything set after the start of game just yet. wink

Otherwise, feel free to talk amongst yourselves.

It's no secret than Deacon Knight is modeled from Chris Knight, in part, from the movie 'Real Genius'.

To get a better feel for what he's like or how he might talk or act I recommend seeing movies like Real Genius (Chris Knight), Van Wilder (Van Wilder), or Caddy Shack (Ty Webb).

He has a little bit of each of those characters in him and they acted as my inspiration while working him up.

Rachel, is it suppose to be subtle innuendo that your sig says that you have Stam 4 and Striking Looks? laugh

Alright. So. I made a tiny timeline mistake, or more accurately, I realized that it'd be cooler to move stuff by one year. I'm going to let you guys be the judge of which way we go to correct it. I'm off by a year; the troubles happen in 1975, or we're starting in August of 2009. Which do you guys prefer - me changing lots of stuff in the history or you guys changing birthdays and such by a year?

I would rather move the troubles back, as I believe that would have the lesser impact on the most characters. Mind you, maybe some people did tie their backgrounds into the Troubles, but I'm not aware of any of that.

Either seems easy enough to adjust to. Just add a year to the date of birth. I'm not sure if anyone is tied to the troubles, but adjusting for one year after about 30 doesn't seem to onerous, there isn't enough ficton yet to make a difference.

The answer is you get an internet connection with tuition; cable is extra and technically not allowed, though no one actually cares so long as homework gets done and the tv isn't loud during quiet times.

Willpower will be regained via the book, OR you'll regain one point per week of downtime. You cannot regain Willpower during a week where directed plot is occurring. Weeks will be clearly marked so that everyone knows when downtime will be occurring.

Request to the students: Could you please state in your profiles (for those of you who haven't already) what year you're in? That way, we'll know who is in who's classes.

LOL... Emily must stay in Juno over summer break, then, or she never would have seen the courtyard from her room. Looks great, Dawn, you must have put some work into that. Kudos!

DAWN---Just a note... to keep the IC thread clean, I moved discussion here. This post and the two that follow refer to this thread.

I think it would be fair to assume that there are probably only two dorms open during the summer, in order to save on power, water, maintenance, that sort of thing. Reduce operational costs.

If Sean and Micah will back off, and Ryan doesn't do anything foolish, we can move to the conclusion of this chapter. laugh

As a note, all dorms have multiple exits, so the intruder in Diana may not be there any longer. I just wanted the PCs to know that was an option.

BTW, I'm giving people until tomorrow afternoon to reply in the threads. I know that some people have lives. If everyone posts, then naturally, I'll update that thread early.

Micah - you have a PM that I need you see before you reply in The Hunt. Just making sure you don't miss it.

Can we get a 'sticky' on current chapters? In EoE I try to sticky the relevant chapter so it's easier for players to locate it on the list of topics, it was something I was messing with and found that it's actually pretty handy.

Just a thought.

I understood that to mean that, while they were busy trying to hold off the students/faculty pursuing them, Kytan abandoned Relana et al here. "Why are they here?" Because they're stuck, would be my guess. wink

Also, kudos to Ryan for injecting a bit of level-headedness. smile

I'm not so sure, I thought Relana had said in the teachers loungr that they could only be there because she was, rather than vice versa... I'll have to find the time to check I suppose wink

Yes, there are things that each group don't know about the others and what their showing up meant. If any teacher has spoken about what happened in the Teacher's Lounge, this is the first I've heard about it.

Telling the kids that these bastards are coming back in a month's time would be kind of insane as what it would do to the student body. The parental response would only make it worse.

Too bad in hindsight evacuating the school is the best option.

Thanks! It was probably out of character for a guy like Ryan but then he did get bitten by a man who turned into a dog-thing.

Ok, those in the Hunt, if you're heading for campus, you can jump into 2d. That will be where anyone who leaves their previous chapter can go, actually.
