Re: My First Quest

Puzzles are tricky. They can bring games to a screeching halt if the players are unable to solve them. Ask yourself about the needs of your group: do they like puzzles, are they any good at them? Even the cleverest puzzle will not help your game if your players don't like puzzles. Think of it from y...

Re: Mary Sues: A Curiosity

Saarai, you're ignoring the points I was making. I did not myself apply the statements you made to Hancock to Superman, only noted that I have seen people argue this in the past -- that such things can be argued. I'm not arguing them. I'm just asking you to remember that your perspective is not the ...

Re: Mary Sues: A Curiosity

I was attempting to avoid that debate, Saarai, as it is not only debatable but a very volatile debate which will get completely off-topic (and honestly, some of the things you're saying about Hancock are things people will say about Superman -- for a second I got confused because I missed the Hancoc...

Re: Mary Sues: A Curiosity

I've always been tempted to have an RP in case the goal was to play the most Mary Sue-ish character possible, but I'm leery it would attract the wrong kind of person. Done this before. It was fun. xD In any case, please don't use the Mary Sue Litmus Test as any measure of a character's worth. It's ...

Re: WHITE PEOPLE

I think, in a general sense, the fact is... that's what most media focuses on. Things are getting better, but we're still a really long way off from accurate, diverse, and frequent enough representation of people of color in movies, television, music, and so forth. What people are exposed to influen...

Re: Winter Rose: the garden of a wish... OOC

Hmm. I've been considering things. We wound up losing one player, Romaneck noted that he's less interested now, and Casron never wound up submitting his profile due to issues with getting the character to properly materialize. Celedia and Ion, if you two are still interested, I could restart it, cle...

Re: Winter Rose: the garden of a wish... OOC

Oh hey, I'm still around! Thanks for the OOC posts. I got busy for a few weeks there and forgot that even with this new notification system RPG doesn't email you about RP posts, so checking kind of slipped my mind. D: I really hope they add an email option in the future. But any time I get a PM or t...

Re: Winter Rose: the garden of a wish... OOC

You don't have to worry about messing up my plans too much. Having really hardcore, set in stone plots for an RP is a bad idea in general -- no plan ever survives the PCs in tact anyway! :P So if I really want something to happen, I'll just work it in elsewhere wherever it feels logical and reasonab...

Re: Winter Rose: the garden of a wish... OOC

Aww, I see, Jynxii. That's unfortunate, but I understand. Given the early state of the RP, we can handle this in one of two ways. Jenna hasn't been interacted with too much, so we could handwave it and go on as if she weren't there, or else someone could pick her up since Jynxii did put her up for a...

Re: Winter Rose: the garden of a wish... OOC

I don't worry too much about posting order as long as everybody gets a chance to contribute in the end. There's definitely nothing wrong with giving others a chance to post or waiting for more posts so that you have more to work with, but it's also fine to post when inspiration strikes you. I'm real...

Re: Winter Rose: the garden of a wish... OOC

I don't knooow. I'm afraid I've made things too vague or something. xD

But anyway, I've edited my last post to reflect Emmet's presence IC. Any form of dragging or carrying will do! I pity the poor little guy though. :P

Re: Winter Rose: the garden of a wish... OOC

Yep, Baron okayed my plan. I'm not going to make another post just yet (I may go edit my current post when I have time), but keep in mind that there's a pale, skinny youth with white-blond hair still unconscious in the snow. Probably doesn't look too healthy, and he has an old-fashioned bag with him...

Re: Winter Rose: the garden of a wish... OOC

Yes, Baron will still be in. I poked him again yesterday. He's having some pretty hardcore writer's block right now unfortunately. When I (hopefully) talk to him tonight, I'll see if he'll let me describe his character being unconscious until he gets his profile up, just so you all have something co...

Re: Winter Rose: the garden of a wish... OOC

Post... uh... posted. A lot of it wound up being information communicated above in response to Romaneck, though hopefully it was delivered in a slightly more atmospheric and compelling fashion. :P At the moment I just don't have much to relay unless you guys interact with the environment. I currentl...

Re: UGG Boots. Amazing or Cruel?

It depends on the style, but some of them look okay. Right now I'm kind of at a stage where I'm assessing whether I feel alright about consuming animal products. For the time being, I do use them, so leather shoes aren't out of the question for me; I own several pairs (no UGGs though). However, ther...

Re: Winter Rose: the garden of a wish... OOC

Aww, no need to be so formal! :) I'm just glad you all have hung around thus far. I know it has been agonizingly slow. xD I've been a bit busy with work and family as of late (accursed Easter week :v), but I've read all your intros and like what I see! I'm cooking up a second post, but it's nothing ...

Re: Winter Rose: the garden of a wish... OOC

Not a problem! Also, I got a PM from a lurker who would like to apply, so we may have one more jumping in. Whenever her profile and Baron's are submitted, I'm honestly okay with cutting it off there. That's 5 characters, after all, and that's around the size I was planning for originally. If any of ...

Re: Winter Rose: the garden of a wish... OOC

I didn't post again as I was waiting for others to make their intro. One person's is not a lot to work with when it mostly involves their interacting with the other characters. It's a bit too early for things to start going bump just yet. :v But that's not a problem at all, the intro was perfectly f...

Re: Character Depth Test

While this can be beneficial and fun, I also feel that it's flawed. What you need to know about a character is dictated by the type of game or story said character is in and what role said character plays. I also feel that "depth" is a sum total sort of thing, and professional background a...
