  1. refer all further ws subjects to GDP
  2. sorry but that isn't happeneing now. if there is anyone who wishes to take over with this as storyteller please send me a pm otherwise i am shutting it down
  3. 1. yes i got the weekend wrong . but it is the next general thread which was the point 2. they won't necessarily be in a task thread but I or one of the co-gms will be creating the threads and placing it in the timeline schedule or at the very least coordinating with one of us to do that.
  4. I will not lie WS has become somewhat unmanageable for me. Too many Characters, both pc and npc, too many side stories that are drifting further and further away from the main story so much so that with RL and everything else even i am lost half the time. Max came up with an idea to help and GDB expanded on it. I have thought a bit about it and here is what we are going to do. Using the quest and task post I will create separate Task threads for those things there that need to be played out in some manner, I will assign characters to that specific thread. each thread will be set to occur at a certain time/day during the week and will need to be completed within a set amount of Real Time which will be measured in days not weeks. When these Task Threads are complete I will then create a story tread where general rp can take place that may or may not be related to the plot. if anyone has any personal development / relationship-building / drama thread ideas: Sara and Jase try to settle their differences over a drink and smoke / Charlie goes on a date with Sophia / Sean helping Cade with Calculus, etc., Let me know and i will either add them to one of the task threads or create a separate one for those characters that would be involved. In both cases these small side threads will need to be completed before the next general thread. for instance Rainbows will be over on monday night the following weekend will be the camping trip. The camping trip while not a plot episode will be a general RP episode. I will create a couple of task threads which occur during the 4 days between rainbows and the camping trip I will add any character arcs or threads that you request as well. we will do the short threads over the remainder of this week and probably next week and then the camping trip thread will be started. I also would like some assistants, co-gms, whatever we want to call them who can take some of the pressure off of me for guiding the task threads and and non story line character arc threads. I will give these co-gms a bit of a clue in to what is going on and where I am going with things. Anyway that is my idea for how to do this mashing max's and GDB's suggestions together. If anyone else would like to suggest something or can refine or has any questions this feel free to do so here if there are no suggestions I will begin implementing this. I need two volunteers for the co-gm spots
  5. GDB gave me some suggestions I will put somehting together for this soon
  6. the suggestion has merits, we can try it
  7. hope everyone has had a happy thanksgiving, even you folks from those other places been busy with the holiday and family stuff will resume posting monday or there abouts have a good weekend y'all
  8. no interest in playing a villain game for me
  9. with all the other stuff going on i lost track of this game. i'm over-extended so I am going to drop out. good luck have fun
  10. I don't need all the stress. Lilly is a superior because I suggested that Noir Switch because I felt that the physical superior reflected her concept better than Talent did. I didn't offer it to anyone else because frankly I didn't see a need. All of you had established your characters and were developed and changing any of them would have been disruptive to the story. Dave is playing Marissa now because as an NPC I found that I lacked the ability to write her as she had been established and also because it takes time which I do not have a lot of. Marissa has always since her introduction along with Devin in the original game been a part of this story. Indeed I don't see them as two characters but as two sides of the same character. Marissa and Laurie are also Superiors because it fits them and their part in the story. At this point the only other person I would consider offering the Superior template to would be Autumn and that is only because as a character she hasn't developed any of her powers. And the only reason I didn't think to offer it to ViVi is because she is seldom around and I simply didn't think to. I am not allowing any other s to play second or third characters because this isn't an open world or a sandbox. I am telling a story, y'all are helping me tell it, but it is a story and I don't have room for any more characters and I wouldn't be able to give them the “screen time” they and you as players demand and deserve. Lord knows I have a hard enough time keeping up with what we have. Now I will be the first to admit that I am not a good game master. But then that is not how I think of myself. I am a story teller. If I could do this here without any rules at all I would but that doesn't work here so I do what I can but I will never be a sit at the table book open reading every rule and adhering to it strictly. I don't like game mechanics beyond them giving me and you and idea of what is possible a frame work on which to build. I know a lot of you, most of you don't like that. Y'all love the rules, love making new rules, or fixing the ones that you think are broke. Love rolling the dice and making sure everyone else rolls the dice and that their sheets add up and what not. That isn't me and never will be. Now I don't know what it is about ws but for some reason it seems to stir the emotions and generates an awful lot of drama. That drama is causing me stress, I don't like stress and I don't need stress I have a very stressful job. I know a lot of you don't think I do, but I do. This is my hobby I want to tell this story, so much so that I started it back up after the first one crashed and burned. But it and all the drama and stress are making me not want to do it anymore. But I am not going to give up and quit, and I'm not going to change the way I do things in my game. The way I do things may not be fair, but I'm not trying to be fair, i'm telling a story. Y'all can tell it with me or not that choice is yours
  11. if we didn't take the max in merits and flaws in the original CC can we now revisit them and take merits and flaws upto the unused total in template appropriate m&f

  15. for a bunch of writers communication is not a strong point with anybody in this group. I will admit dave that until you said what you said last night I didn't fully understand what you were doing but after you wrote that i could see it and where you had been doing it. its there you just have to want to see it. if you had made that explanation from last night in a simple post people would have had some thing to latch on to and go ok yeah I can see what he is doing instead. what you got was he is just being and asshole because he wants to be an asshole. I even felt that way myself we talked about that. If gdp had really shared what he had planned with Bannon with what he wrote up there, instead of the brief discussion we had I probably wouldn't have said for to go for it. not be cause its a bad idea it is a good but because I am not the best person to gm something like that. and I didn't realize that it was going to be his centerpeice. I'm not really sure he did either at the time. but all of these explanations and communication would have gone a long way toward quelling the drama i think. And i am not saying that all of the drama is caused by dave. miscommunication and attitude is a problem alot of us have here.
  16. there has been a lot of drama lately. I have even been the cause of some of it. the way people play their characters is not something i am going to dictate. and It is not within my power to do anything about how players act outside of the game. however what happens inside a game needs to stay in the game. you are people playing these character, like or dislike the other players don't project what happens in game onto the player outside and don't project your personal feelings outside into actions in the game. as you can see I am reluctant to remove anyone from the game. I did that once and have regretted it ever since. the only reason i will remove someone is if i find that a player is intentionally sabotaging or disrupting the game. some of you may think that this has already happened and are questioning my judgment and that's ok too. but in the end for better or worse that judgement for my games is my call. Like wise I will not try to stop anyone from leaving. i may offer advice or not, but i don't have all the answers most of you have been doing this a lot longer than i have. each and everyone of you are adults and you know what it is that you want and need out of these games if you arn't getting it then I understand wanting to leave and i am not going to stp you though i will look upon it as a failure on my part. also imo there has been a lot of bad behavior outside of the game... some of it caused by actions inside games some of it is just bad behavior being perpetrated under the guise of joking. everyone here is an adult and picking and bullying is not adult behavior and being on the internet is not an excuse for acting like an ass. and before everyone points there finger at one person, don't, because there are several people here who do this or join in when it is done. I can't make any of you stop but i can ask you to tone it down and think of the other person as a person instead of a pixle.
  17. Bravo! i hadnt seen that you posted it hehe
  18. If anyone wants to have Sara involved feel free to let me know. She won't be at the game but probably could be found at the gym until it closes then at bunee's and the bowling ally across the street from bunnee's. If you want her in any of your fics I should be able to post but it would be later during the nights than we are used to. I won't be posting at all during our normal hours
  19. starting tomorrow through the end of next week I will have limited activity. I will try to be available in the early mornings and after 8pm pacific. but will make no promises I will try to make posts during the nights. if there are things i need to address for you leave me a PM on the rpg post site
  20. i will be addressing that and moving y'all in my post after gd's post
