  1. I'm in! And I agree a copy/paste would be most convenient, if you have time/inclination to do it. Thanks!
  2. If you don't see me, just turn around. I'm there.
  3. Proposal/suggestion for game pacing moving forward. Been enjoying the game a lot so far, but I did want to say the game events have been very densely packed, with just the past several in-game days taking the characters through a HUGE array of incredible events, all of which could serve as a lead for further investigation or following up on. As a result I've been feeling kind of overwhelmed; feeling like I'm not doing enough...even as the posts keep rolling on. The large amount of things to do, coupled with the meticulous hour-by-ingame hour pacing, means that a lot of posting leads to very small amounts of actual movement. What if we took a somewhat more fluid approach to the timeframe the game's events unfolded at? That would free Nina's hand when deciding what happens to who and when...and it would let us abstract some tasks (for example, 'investigating Dr. Cook,' which is not likely to require much RP to do), while focusing on events or tasks that will have moments of high drama or action in their resolution. So, for example, Rainbow is Monday. All of it, just on Monday. Suppose starting Tuesday we give Nina a list of what our characters will be doing in relatively general terms. What classes we have, what are our plans afterschool, etc etc... If we need rolls for anything, we include them. She can then summarize those events that don't need to be RPed out. Meanwhile, those things that DO need to be RPed out will have threads created for them that can just be resolved by whatever PCs are involved in those events. Then we have the big 'group get together' threads on the weekends, and they can cover as much, or little, time as the group activities warrant. That's where we share, in character, the results of the week's activities, both RPed and summarized. Fics or other side stories can fit into that general pattern as well, but would be less formalized I think. All of this is totally open for discussion/dissection/etc...I'm just trying to address an issue I've been feeling where I have a lot of stuff I want Cassandra to do, but feel like I haven't had in-game time to do them...even as real-world time flashes past. What do you guys think?
  4. They both sound fun. Full disclosure, I've played the Way of Wicked up through the end of the prison break...but it's been so long I don't remember any specifics, other than that there's a prison break. Night's Black Agents is not a system I'm familiar with, but it seems like it fits my groove.
  5. Juno hucks a big rock at the spider threatening Siobhan! DiceParserBOTToday at 6:40 PM # 9 Details:[5d2 (2 2 1 2 2)] 4 successes!
  6. Ah yeah...lemme see when Quarantine ended and I'll date it a few days after that.
  7. Arcata Kadir Ex-ISB Agent Physical Description: Personality: Objectives:
  8. My first thought is to bring Arcata back in, because I was really enjoying her, but I'm open to other ideas.
  9. No worries. Thanks for the update!
  10. They're the same now. She edited the one she posted here. Test
  11. Doh, the new table means modes are priced just out of my reach. The pain.
  12. I think you could start other threads and leave Peers Pressures open, so folks can have their RP and action both. PBP lets us run concurrent threads when warranted.
  13. Ambushed by my own character concept! THE METAHUMANITY!
  14. Could do a sneaky assassin type, or perhaps a netrunner of some stripe. I'll review the books and see what jumps out at me.
  15. Hai! I just gotta be different, ok? Yes.
  16. Cassandra will be at the game, making she can quote the highlights in an article for the paper. Maybe grab some shots/soundbites from players. She's not super into it, but is paying enough attention to take notes if anything interesting happens. For interims, Cassandra is quite available. She'd really like to spend time with others in the Fellowship, since they seem to be at the epicenter of something really extraordinary and she is still at the fringes of the social circle.
  17. On that note, Genesis Industries is marketing full-sensation prosthetics for, uh, various applications. User-definable attributes. Sign up here.
  18. Arr yeah, sorry, Nina. Genesis was a matter creator/inventor nova superscientist, who apotheosized into a nanotech T-1000ish fluidic body. Matter creation doesn't seem to be a thing anymore, but I can roll with the rest of it, perhaps.
  19. Thinking of recreating Genesis if I can find a power set that makes me happy. If not, we'll see. Beyond that, I wanna do a Talented Directive agent and perhaps a psychic of some kind.
  20. As far as I'm concerned, this is happy funtime gamespace, no matter how accurately it models our reality. I'm not planning on playing someone psycho enough to punch political figures. Other forms of activism are possible, depending on character concept. So I have no objection to basing it on reality. Could be entertaining, though I understand your concern. Especially in a relatively 'moderator free' zone. Eh, y'all know me. It's all good.
  21. Thinking of bringing in someone punchy. Cop or soldier or park ranger. Yes a punchy park ranger! The better to PUNCH NAZIS with! Might actually reboot Renata from Dalton...an oldie but goodie. Or might make someone new and shiny! In terms of HEX archetype...I think a hunter! Not sure yet if it's a rugged wilderness hunter, or a more urban type deal...I think the hunter archetype is pretty versatile though. I'll see where it takes me.
  22. I really like Live Like Giants, and Legends is a close second. I could live with Glory too though.
  23. Thanks for this. I'll PM you a post. It won't be one that interacts with others like I'd hoped...entirely my own fault on that, but I can't fix it now. Apologies.
