Re: Ascendancy: A Candle in the Dark

Wow, that will be quite the voyage. I'm going to college less than an hour from my home, haha. I wish you the best of luck in the transition.

Re: Ascendancy: A Candle in the Dark

Just so long as it is here and has meaningful content, length isn't so important. It's too bad your college starts so early, mine doesn't begin until the 27th.

Re: Ascendancy: A Candle in the Dark

I'm in agreement with Carmel on this one. Especially given the fact that you expressly stated that your nation has practically no space forces,when you have more than twice as many ships as I do, and all of them on par with my strongest vessel. Personally, I would cap it at 5 Jacks (I have 3 Athena ...

Re: Ascendancy: A Candle in the Dark

That's for sure Mr. Carmel. It takes quite a while to hammer out posts for this thing, but that's part of the fun. On the plus side you don't actually need to wait for anyone to post either, theoretically you could just keep writing about stuff going on inside of your nation without interacting with...

Well rpannier, I cannot speak for all of us but I am a patient man with no plans on quitting just yet. Take your time, we'll still be here when you're ready to submit your application.

Re: Ascendancy: A Candle in the Dark

The delay is not a problem, I'm simply glad that you posted. Based on the content of your first post, I am now more eager than ever to begin to interact with you in-character. Hopefully things will start to speed up a little now that we have another person involved, I really would like to see this r...

Re: Ascendancy: A Candle in the Dark

You could start out with a conversation or something that gives us insight into the general populous of your nation, and then segue into a scene related to what is going on. Or you could just drop right into the scenario without exposition.

Re: Ascendancy: A Candle in the Dark

Yeah, you may post when you are ready. I'm not overly concerned about fleet strength, because in the end the stats aren't as important as how the battles are written. As long as your ships go down like any other, there won't be a problem. Besides, it is silly to expect for every writer to have ships...

Re: Ascendancy: A Candle in the Dark

I've accepted your nation, even though you haven't filled in places and characters yet (they aren't that important when it comes to gauging power anyway). I really like the idea, and I can already tell that the two of us are going to be mortal enemies, haha. My one slight concern with your nation is...

Oh yeah, that one was intentional now that I think about it. I'm a bit scatter-brained right now I guess, haha.

Re: The Nightwing's Voyage

Did I? If so it was completely accidental, though apparently quite fortunate. It's been such a long time since I last played that game that I'd be hard pressed to figure out exactly where the reference lies. Would you care to explain my own reference to me?

Re: The Nightwing's Voyage

If you guys are still looking for a doctor, I'd be willing to create a character to take on that role. In the event that you do need one, is there anything special I should be aware of while creating my character's bio?

It certainly would be disappointing. It's taking a bit longer than I had hoped, but we'll get this thing off the ground yet!

Re: Ascendancy: A Candle in the Dark

By all means! There is no rush on the proofreading, I plan to be here for some time into the future. I would, however, ask that all roleplay posts be properly proofread prior to submission. I'd like a "clean" look for the roleplay, if you get my meaning.

Re: Ascendancy: A Candle in the Dark

I definitely like your approach to space combat, boarding enemy ships and taking them over for your own use. I get the feeling that with a strategy like that, the more you engage in battle the more powerful your fleet will become (once you figure out how to operate the captured ships of course--thou...
