Well, that could be going better.

So we seem to have lost a number of people.

As you probably know, this is particularly annoying for Dresden Files because character creation is an ordeal.  Do you want me to push forward just with you guys?

Advertise for new people and have them play and finish characters at the same time?

I'm open to suggestions here.

I would go for the latter. Unfortunately, fading is a real problem on Rpol. I had hoped that Dresden players would not be as vulnerable, but it seems that I was wrong.

Bring in some new players and get started while they make their characters. Do you want us to rework our Guest Star Aspects so we can be tied into the new characters' stories?

Oh, I know someone who would like to join and will stick with the game.

In reply to Warren Reese (msg # 96):

By all means, invite them.  I can't guarantee that I'll be able to work them into the story, but I'm predisposed to like people that come recommended.

I will leave reworking your character up to you.  I know some people really like changing their characters around, and others don't.  I'm willing to take them as is.   But if you like that kind of thing you are welcome to adjust your character while we're getting new people set up.

Really it's just:

ASPECTS
 Guest-Story: The Laws Protect Us
 Guest-Story: "I am firepower!"

These might need to change as they're tied to our links to the other players.

I will let her know to send you an RTJ. She will mention me.

I'm back.  We had internet go out for a while and the day we got it back we lost our electricity.  Everything is finally working again at the same time (though electric will probably be a weeks-long re-wire of the entire house to get permanently fixed).

Woot! Aria lives!

And that sucks. Rewiring the entire house? Ugh.

Alright.  Post is up.  Make any rolls and invokes you like.

When Morgan gets to hold the Clue Stick (tm) he hits hard. :)

Nothing from the GM in a month. I'm sad to see yet another Dresden Files game die before it really begins.

Sorry.  I started a new program and it's been going good but the work load is leaving me dazed at the end of the day.  Like shouldn't be driving tired.  And then they added in teaching.

I think I'm getting the hang of my schedule, but I have not been confident in my ability to type in actual english sentences that make any sense. If you still want to play, I will try to get my act together this weekend.   But I understand if you're frustrated with me at this point.

Oh no, I would love to play. I really want to play Warren. And I completely understand getting burned out by a new schedule. It's just a good idea to give your players some notice before going silent for a month.

I've been dealing with work stress myself. I've barely been able to post to the game I'm running and have had to force myself to post to the games I'm playing in.

If you need more time, please take it. Just let us know. Communication is key in games like this.

okay, I was up until 1 am writing reports.  I will move things forward tomorrow.

Miranda:  I noticed that there are no craft, performance or evidence of hobbies.  You don't have to have one, but you are not impressing anyone with your ability to come up with a sick rhyme, cook, or show off any dance moves.  Additionally, some types of magic are performance or craft based (re: Atsa's sand-painting or the sub-rosa painting in the Paul Revere house).

Besides, even batman has a hobby :)

Otherwise, you're good.

Alright crew!

You've almost made it past the introduction.  Elvis is leaving the building, and you're mostly on your own.   Now you need to figure out what your first moves are.

It is preferred that you make some kind of joint plan, but if you need a thread to resolve some kind of left-handed inquiries send me a pm.

Sorry for the delay, all, and I'm going to have to ask for ongoing patience.  We lost our internet, then our water, then our power at home one basically as soon as the other got fixed.  The power is ongoing but there was enough at the moment to run both my computer and the router, ergo: update.
