Re: Out of Character
Yeah sorry go for it.

I aplogize for kind of being absent too. ^^; I've been working a lot and now I'm sick, so I've been kind of mentally drained. xP

Leitha brought up a good point in a PM to me. An idea, what if the waiter is under the influence of hypnosis? Like he's not the real villan, just under the true villain's control. Which I thought could be like a Puppet Master, who maybe (this is just an idea I had) learns about them and their master.

Like say another human is controlled when Mark and the others are out on the town, which will happen soon once he's done with Meri, and sort of stalks them to gain information.

Then the Puppet Master somehow ends up taking control of Markus and using him as bait? Or something. I haven't been feeling too hot so I know there's holes.

From now on I'm going to toss ideas out to you all so we all can come up with a plot together that isn't filled with surprises and me goofing up. xP

Gotcha! Aww, I hope you feel better soon!

A "Puppet Master," huh? Under the rein of Edwin, or another villain plot entirely? The hypnosis twist sounds solid, though it would beg the question: how did the villain know Jane/Chi were even there (unless he was a minion/affiliate of Edwin, who's already aware of their presence).

Re: Out of Character
Edwin feels like a sort of wealthy, smug, magnificent bastard Xanatos type of guy, I feel like if he was capable of having thrall spies, he'd have them all over the place. Maybe one of his demons has remote sight through thralls it's connected to, and can act through them? Sorta like Sixth in Mirai Nikki. (Love that anime, btw)

Re: Out of Character
I must credit Jane for the idea that Shawn was a pawn. I just extend on it.

I did suggest Team Edwin, because like you Chi, I didn't think of how to introduce a new villain. My complete suggestion was:
quote:
Idea on how Shawn fit the story so far. He is possessed by one of the seven. This demon can summon poison that affect even other demons. He didn't expect that throwing up and magic could defeat his poison. Maybe he is out of touch with his power, maybe Chi is stronger that he expected.

I wounder if my power of "Knowing what game would be the most interesting to the target" would spot something is amiss for a "puppet": no game or anything would be a good distraction. Not if he is hiding in a crowd, but if she can see him mostly alone. Like finding the beefcake bodyguard with a soprano voice: impossible in a crowd, super easy if he is the only person in the room.

I suggest that instead of Markus, the Puppet Master control someone that Mark care about: a close friend, a cousin, an ex-lover for extra-drama, etc. Because of the runes, Mark is the goal. At least that what the houndsmaster told us.

Re: Out of Character
Sorry I'm just trying to think up new mini bosses for everyone. ^^; I mean if you all have an idea for one of the demons attached to Edwin let me know. :3 I'm fine with letting others pull the villain ropes for a while. ^^

Oh I'll be alright, it's a chest cold. Thank you Chi. :3 sorry for not being around though.

I'll post tomorrow. I got bad news today. My Grandmother fell and shattered her hip. She is due for surgery first thing in the morning. I hope she will be okay. She almost didn't make it when she had her triple bypass. I'm really freaked out at the moment. Hopefully I will have my muse tomorrow.

Re: Out of Character
It wouldn't be so bad if I could see her, but she lives in Florida, and I ... do not. So getting there by car, super expensive and would take close to about...fourteen hours. Not including stops. :(

:( *hugs* it's alright. Meridiana, this rp involves a small group. So we can take our time with our rp. :3

We don't need to rush, if it takes us most of the year to get past the first story arc that's fine. ^^

The real important thing is making sure you're all having fun and enjoying the story/characters.

Like I keep saying take all the time you need. I'm sorry to hear about your Grandmother. :( I'm sure everything will be alright.

Virtual Hugs to you Meri <3


In reply to Markus (msg # 944):

You too, take care and return to us in full health , or at least with brain juice :)


To recap, Edwin enslaved seven major demons, we "know" 3 of them: Crystal Ball Mistress, HoundsMaster (dead), Puppet Master. You want us to help you find the last four ?

Is the Puppet Master my nemesis? Because puppets are part of games, right? :) Seriously, I have some ideas for mini-boss for Leitha, but I need to complete them before posting about them :)

Re: Out of Character
Hang in there, Meri. A hip replacement sounds easier than a triple bypass, at least, for the surgeon and your grandmother both. Is there anyone in Florida who could give you updates?

I honestly have no idea what Sanaa's nemesis would be. Something slavery-themed, to play with both her powers and racial status?

Re: Out of Character
In reply to Sanaa (msg # 950):

An suggestion for your nemesis: an other kind of genie (Efreeti, Janni, Marid, Shaitan)[1]. And an idea on how the fight could look like: a duel of wits, were you must counter the other wishes and he counter your like a transformation duel (the first change into a mouse, the other into a cat, the first respond by changing into a dog, ...). But the most important thing about that nemesis is that they have some information that could help you with your wish. Maybe the could want to give you this information even if Edwin doesn't want it, because they don't want the Djinn to die out or out of respect for your family.


And that make me thought on how I could battle the Muppet Paster (I mean the Puppet Master). I will show them how to really play with puppets, until someone else could sneak attack them :) Maybe their puppet, or mine for added irony.


1: I know, I'm quoting D&D because they are more diversify than in the Islāmic myth :).


Rpol have started to nag us to nag you about the 1000 post limit :)
This thread is nearing the 1,000 post limit.  Please request your GM creates a new thread.

Re: Out of Character
I've got some ideas for Team Edwin.

Even though I imagined some of them as evil counterparts for our characters, I have a hard time imagining that we wouldn't use the power of friendship to defeat them. I mean, as one of the less fight-savvy (with Rose and Meridiana), I would probably be a distraction/bait until one of the others are ready to finish it. And secondly, as players' characters we are destined to be almost always with others.

With that said, here my suggestions (I've lost too much time to tv tropes while reseaching):

Like I said before, a Ifrit (or an other kind of genies). He could serve Edwin by guarding his laboratory or fetching usual components. He could oppose Sanaa and have some information regarding her parents.

The Big Bad Wolf http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmw...p/Main/TheBigBadWolf A fairy that want to devour our Red headed Meri :). I don't have an idea on how he serve Edwin, maybe it's the team pet.

An fallen angel. It would be the worst fear of Leitha (because he represent the opposite of her wish), but if it's martial enough, it could easily oppose Jane. He could be the body guard of Edwin.

While writing this, I think I found a good one for the last one. A gremlin (not from the movie, from myth http://villains.wikia.com/wiki/Gremlins_%28folklore%29 ) He could oppose Rose (because of mischief). It was one of the first summoned (because of Edwin scientific background) Edwin kept him even if he hate it, because he use it to derail his enemies' researches.


Because I love the possibility of viewing all the thread at one, I nag again for a new thread :)

I haven't had the headspace to design an antagonist yet (juggling the design of 'two' RL rpg campaigns).  However I really like having a chaotic rival in the form of the Gremlin, thanks Leitha! :)

The big bad wolf for Merri is hilarious, I hope she adopts it.

A different sort of Genie for Sanaa & an angel opposing Leitha sound pretty apt as well.

Re: Out of Character
In my first draft, the wolf was yours. To oppose your cat form :)


For the fallen angel, I think he is a better opponent for Jane than the puppet master because he could easily match her fighting ability.

Re: Out of Character
Not all angels have to be warriors, some could be heralds or messengers whose purpose is to inspire.  Leitha's power over people tends to smother their inspiration with leisure instead, so its sort of an opposing direction.

Anyhow, better grab some sleep for tomorrow's working day.  Nighty!

I'm sorry to hold everyone up. Please go on without me in order to keep the game flowing. I'm still not really feeling up to posting at the moment. My Grandmother is in ICU and unable to breathe on her own, so my muse level is stunted still.
