The Forge of Vision

The Forge of Vision

0 INK

An aspiring musician, along with his close friends, find themselves torn between a brutal fantasy world and an unwelcoming reality.

789 readers have visited The Forge of Vision since WaywardDreamer created it.

Introduction

None of them are quite sure when it started, though they all agree Rafael Singer seems to be the center of it.

At first it was just his going-nowhere band, Tragically Canadian, and all four members agreed it was probably the result of too much beer on a road trip to Calgary. After all, what else is a motherfucker going to do in Calgary?

The theory didn't pan out: it spread gradually, always to people Rafael had recent contact with. Before long, his entire circle of friends, small though it may have been, found themselves pulled in. Sometimes, even a casual acquaintance would wake in the Otherworld, though it was rare for them to ever return.

None of them are quite sure when it started, and none are quite sure why: they know only that the Otherworld waits for them, only the breadth of a thought away, ever enticing against the dull constancy of life in Victoria. An impossible world, always welcoming, always full of mystery, and wonder, and adventure... as addictive as any narcotic, and far deadlier.

This is the story of Tragically Canadian's ongoing journey through the Otherworld and through their own lives - and through the many challenges that await them on the road ahead.

Note: RP currently takes place in the IC Thread.

Yeah, same. So, this RP tab and chat tab thing is pissing me off. I am suggesting we do this the old fashioned way, make a forum thread for the play-by-post and do the chat sections with an outside client.

Re: [OOC] The Forge of Vision

Sorry for the complete lack of postage on my end; I'll try to have something up by the end of this weekend. It's Hell Week.

Re: [OOC] The Forge of Vision

Both in honour of the obvious SP influence in this RP, and in honour of the fact I was bored, tired, and had access to the internet, I present you...

http://www.scottpilgrimthemovie.com/ava ... g60725.jpg

Re: [OOC] The Forge of Vision

Since we seem to be coming around again, any chance y'all will be up for an IRC run on Sunday?

Re: [OOC] The Forge of Vision

Joe is having internet issues. Bruce expects to be back at the end of October. Might be a few days before the next post, but... I'm trying to keep it moving.

Re: [OOC] The Forge of Vision

So, if we don't get Bruce and Nicole back by the end of this 'arc' if you will, I'm going to try recruiting a couple new people to the RP. Bruce assured me he'll be back eventually, I haven't talked to Nicole in awhile... but we'll see, in both cases.

Re: [OOC] The Forge of Vision

Understandable, most definitely. If someone else could go first, that would be nice. If nobody's posted by Sunday, though, I'll go ahead and write one myself.

Re: [OOC] The Forge of Vision

I'll see if I can get someone to post first if you prefer. Just trying hard not to let my RP die of "schooling".

Re: [OOC] The Forge of Vision

If by "alive" you mean breathing, not exactly comatose, and with access to a keyboard, then yes. I was going to wait for another person or two to post before I did so, but if you'd rather I just went ahead, I could do that too...

Re: [OOC] The Forge of Vision

At this point, I just don't think those are going to happen regularly. Nobody has schedules conducive to it other than me, really.

Re: [OOC] The Forge of Vision

I have no idea if you were even still planning a chat session this evening, but the all-too-familiar "real life" thing necessitates my presence elsewhere. Sorry...

Re: [OOC] The Forge of Vision

Well, for those who read this, DO show up Sunday if you can, if I can even get 3 people we'll do something.

Joe can't make it and I'm expecting no miracles out of Bruce, though.

Re: [OOC] The Forge of Vision

Two things:

Let's try for Sunday. I have no idea what's become of Desire, but Calvin may be volunteered for bad things to happen to before too long if he doesn't show the hell up. Overall Sunday seems to be better for most of us than other days.

Also, I saw a motherfucking orca. It surfaced like ten feet from my kayak.

Re: [OOC] The Forge of Vision

I think you did fine. Points for the Katamari reference.

In other news, are we going to try for this Sunday night? Or does that time just totally suck for everyone but me?

Re: [OOC] The Forge of Vision

So yeah. I suck at Rp. I'm having trouble coming up with responses in general and I do not wish to fail Orion when he comes back. However, no ideas are being had. Any suggestions for Paul/Pauline?

Re: [OOC] The Forge of Vision

So, I'm going to be gone Tuesday through most of Thursday. Please continue posting in my absence. If I return to find nobody's posted I might just start taking drastic actions.

Re: [OOC] The Forge of Vision

This SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY!

...another 7:30 IRC run, if that works for people?

Re: [OOC] The Forge of Vision

Can we get some postage going, guys?

Re: [OOC] The Forge of Vision

So, same as before: sorcery.net, #forgeofvision. Please do report there if you're around. I'm getting a feeling we'll be short tonight, so we'll see if we have enough players to do shit.
