Aberrant: Theomachy - General Discussion

Recommended Posts

This is a catch-all for whatever we want to ramble about...you know, the general chat thread every forum seems to have. I'm gonna pin this one too so it's always at the top.

MP...could you delete your comment from the backgrounds thread please? That kind of banter belongs in this thread....

I'd like to point out that "The Gods of Arr-Kelaan" is basically what we're setting up here. http://www.rmcomics.com/Mirror/Current/

It's a comic book series about some Earth people who end up on a mid-evil world... and part of the transference made them literal gods. Most or all of the series is posted on line at that website.

How is that basically what we are setting up here?
The whole "gods as normal people with powers" theme runs pretty strongly through the entire series.

"Mike" actually ran around as a super hero for a while "fighting crime".

Still doesn't compute with me...Our characters were never normal, our powers are divine and we are immortal...

First of all, we *were* normal since during and before puberty we were basically human. Even if you *know* that you have two godly parents, before the end of puberty you don't have powers. We also have human lusts, concerns, etc.

Hey speak for yourself buddy! A few of our origin stories are a little more mythic in nature and not quite so

"Smallville"...

We also have human lusts, concerns, etc.

As did most of the mythic gods of yore...

And I'm out for tonight. By 'tonight' I mean 3:45 PM, which is my current bedtime heh. I got two prologues up, I'll be doing BlueNinja next then I'll be hitting up Shade, Alex, and Meta next (in random order).

BT, hope you don't mind, but I edited your prologue post. The heavy use of 'K' in place of Kalakutesh was driving me nuts. So I replaced them with his name, or with 'the dragon' or something similar.

Sorry, I didn't mean any disrepect, it was just making it hard for me to come up with a serious response for it.

I would check in with BN since last I heard he is probably still shipping out to sea soonish...

I PM'd him to start the prologue; if it turns out I'm staying in the Navy, then Coraline will just be really, really slow progressing. ::biggrin

Hey Peeps!

I had two of my roommates move out mid month and have had to scram ble to fill the vacancies. Things are going to be chill with me for the next week though for the holiday, though I imagine most of us are going to be tied up with family.

Anyways...is this game still on? Super quiet again though I did see BT online here a few days ago...no posts or nuthin'!

Haven't seen him or Cottus on chat for a week or more either...

::unsure

I'm here. And Sky, I've been signed into AIM pretty consistently for almost the entire past week, so I'm not sure why you're not seeing me...

I know this probably just boils down to Holiday season shennanigans but I'm sort of feeling wary about the red flag here...is this game going to sprout wings of glory or go the way of Prometheans Unbound with all of its lost potential?

I think its more of the former. BT has put up an impressive amount of info and thought. He has blown up the boards with stuff.

While I'm excited to see my prologue and get the game rolling, I think the doomsday scenario is less likely. He probably is busy or unmotivated or blank minded and hasn't posted in a few days.

These things do happen. Some slack must be issued...pressure probably is not the best medicine.

I of course could be wrong, and when it is clear that I am I will edit this post to read "YEAH WHAT SKY AND COTTUS SAID"

I can confess that my RL issues have distanced me from the game a bit, mostly I would say because now that my character is finalized I am not thinking about him all the time. I *do* owe a post though and now that things have settled down I can get to that at least to provide some inspiration to BT when he gets back...

We just got done celebrating x-mas with one branch of the family and next weekend will do it with the other... and that's over and above my boss being in town.

Things get slow during the Holidays.

Sorry, I've been tied up with doctors appointments. Next week I have to do my pre-op anesthesia testing. I hate surgeons and I don't like going under. *sigh* They're doing this laparoscopically, why can't they just give me a local and a mirror?

Well, finally got my cable back up, so am back online again. If the Internet were a person I would be hugging it right now and sobbing.

My Internet actually got turned back on Christmas Eve night, but I've been busy since then with all the porn I missed over two weeks holiday cheer.

Wow...I have really been slacking on my gaming. Can't believe I haven't gotten around to this yet. Sorry folks! Need to get my head sorted out and get organized here so I can get my head back in the game so to speak.

...aaaand that makes two weeks...sigh.

He either does not love us or his computer is down again. Only if his computer was down you would think he would at least go the public library and tell us.

If and when he ever comes back I am going to ask him for his normal email so as to keep better apprised.

Well, paperwork is being run now for me to re-enlist. As much as I'd like to shout "FTN!" at the top of my lungs while running down the pier, I literally cannot afford to exit the Navy without a job already lined up. On the upside, I do seem to be able to access the internet while out to sea. Hopefully, this encouraging trend continues. ::happy [edit] Anyone who lives near Seattle and would like to attend my re-enlistment ceremony, it's being held off-base. Drop me a PM for directions.
