Mutants & Masterminds: The Alabaster Academy - The Alabaster Academy - OOC conversation

Recommended Posts

42-banner-1391911282.png

 

In the year 2014, a new generation of Hypers begins their studies at the only Academy in the world specifically designed for the education of Hypers. Hypers being the superhumans of the world. This new class though will be tasked to do far more than just their homework.

 

 

Okay I'm separating the OOC about characters and the game setting from the recruiting thread. So, here we are in the OOC.

 

First, I'll bring over any outstanding questions to the group that I will now post here. Right now there is one I can remember and that is on how we wanna do our preludes.

 

Do we want to do them publicly, with a prelude thread for every character, or have it done via PM then have them posted once complete?

I didn't really answer before because I'm good either way. The individual preludes would be fun but they are extra work. So I leave it up to the person doing the extra work - you. :)

Well the preludes are a option, it might help people get their character in their head before we focus on getting the group dynamic together.

Then again I got 9 characters I gotta juggle preludes for. Give me a couple says to think on preludes even happening, now that I see the number.

I think I have an idea with this. As there is 9 people and running 9 different threads I cannot do all at once, I am going to pare down the player characters. Those that are done are in, but I am going to limit to 5. I will post the cuts soon.

Here is who is in, who is out.

,,
Out
Darksol
Hyoseph
Moira
Ace (not sure if you were in or out, so anyone on the fence went here)
Revenant (not sure if you were in or out, so anyone on the fence went here)
In
Casey (Heri)
Datastream (Carver)
Hikilani Mizuki (Max)
Justin (No character yet)
Abyss (No character Yet)
I will start preludes once all the characters are in.

Well Preludes for me are also enlightened self-interest.

,,

1: I can figure out how to tie everyone together.

2: I figure a few things about everyone's characters.

3: It gives people time to ease into their characters.

4: It allows me to focus on getting everyone as a group next while getting everyone past the awkward introduction period.

,,

Yes, I had to cut back in the process, but I'm now comfortable with the 5 I got. Looking forward to everyone's characters. So far Casey, Datastream, and HK are in. Looking to see what Abby sends and if Justin is in. I always keep a seat open for him. If Justin doesn't join, and if not I'm happy with 4, and I might open up a seat after I get going and got some momentum.

Well, leave me to worry about memorizing names. Prof. Fortnight will have to know his students on a first name basis.

Okay, Still waiting on some decisions, that and I'm going to look at each submitted character to see where I can draw inspiration for each prelude, including knowing where each character is starting off before being "enrolled" as it were. That and I gotta finish the second half of faculty NPCs, and get sorted some extra things that make the setting a bit more colorful.

Okay, I heard Justin is out, and I'm still waiting on Abby. I'm thinking Wednesday I can start preludes no matter if Abyss is done or not. I'm okay with 3 players to start.

,,

If anyone is wondering once gameplay starts I might close to invite only for playing in the game. I wanna make sure I got momentum going in.

If the preludes are going to bog you down, skip them. Better, ask your players to take some initiative and write them on their own. Reward them based on the effort they put into it. Just a few tips.

Okay I'm pulling the trigger on Wednesday. If you've had your character approved (Which so far is Heri's, Dawn's, and Max's) please have them posted in the character roster thread.

Something I need to note in regards to the Prelude phase. If there is something you don't like or think you've forgotten in regards to your character, I will allow changes up to the actual start of the game, this includes during the prelude. Something that looked good at the start might not work in play, so tweaking things is allowable up to the first actual thread. Something to keep in mind though is that the changes must not change the overall concept of the character. This is more to correct errors or to fix any oversight in regards to what you think your character should have.

Maybe I'm missing something or don't have the best of memory, but I don't think I ever knew about this game.

I guess it works out though, looks like I wasn't in the running anyway :P

EDIT: NOW I remember. Bad memory it is then. Ignore the crazy woman behind the curtain!

There is going to be a delay on preludes for a day or two, no later than the Weekend, though. To be honest would people mind just getting the group together and just starting?

,,

As a note, I updated the Dramatis Personae thread.

I'm having a hard time figuring a way to start this off, is all.

,,

I just need a day here and I can just start with everyone together.

Any objections on a little mass-transit railroad to get us to the Academy?

It might just be easiest having us arrive on our first day, Hogwarts-style; some sort of train from Seattle or the like, that goes through a high-speed underwater tunnel or the like could work, or a hovercraft with a fog generator. I think just get us there and we can figure out out together.

Okay, as far as I am concerned, everyone is approved, but why is only Casey posted?

I'm giving everyone till Sunday, if you get your characters posted by then, I'll give 2pp.

,,

I am going to start Tomorrow, just realized what time it is, and I haven't started yet. This starting post I sort of got to start setting up where people are and it's taking a little more calculation than I originally thought. That, and it's a busy Friday strangely enough.

I know I've been saying I'd start posting today, but I am going to have far fewer distractions tomorrow while I'm at the game shop. No TT this sunday for me, so I can really hammer down.

,,

I'm sorry for the delays.

Writing the initial post now.

,,

This is who I have approved, if your name is bold your profile is posted.

Heritage - Casey

Dawn - Datastream (Olivia)

Max - Kia

Abyss - Starflare - Alexis

,,

Please, if you have not posted your profile here... do so now. If not by Monday, there won't be an extra 2pp in your pockets.

,,

Also Moira is considering a character.

By 'Pearl Harbor', do you mean the location in Hawaii, or somewhere else? And am I correct in assuming Casy flew out to the rendezvous point under her own power?

Casey, your dad went to a meeting at Pearl, and took you along. And yes, the location in Hawaii. It was a big enough port area to me. And I'm sure in that area there's civilian docks.

Yay, we're starting! Sadly, today is my day to work at Mala's house on our project, so I won't be around much. I'll post this evening or tomorrow.

Well... amazing what some positive reinforcement gives!

Everyone in the game gets 2pp for submitting. ^_^

You may do any tweaks you find necessary during this opening thread. Once it is over, you have to ask for permission for character changes.
You may also spend your 2pp however you wish.

Abyss, can we get a description of some kind for your PC? I'm picturing your avatar for her right now, which is all the information I have for her. Could you please elaborate or provide a picture in her profile? :)

Yes, please do. Although you mentioned an age in chat, I have to see if you edited that in.

If you've not done that by the end of Orientation, I will start docking PP experience and possibly repossessing hero points. I expect a complete character when it's played.

,,

I'm kidding... but if I don't see something soon I'll be very cross.

I need a little time to think about where to take things, so it'll be a couple days. I won't be around tomorrow I think. Depending on weather. Friday or Saturday though I will be around. Usual time.
