Re: OOC Chat
I'm assuming you're all waiting on me to move things along again?

Remember, I asked for experienced proactive players. Don't be afraid to do stuff!

Edit: While I'm at it Everyone +2 EXP. We've had some hang ups but overall I'm very happy with the post quality.

Re: OOC Chat
I can't help but feel that making up Nigel's answer myself would be a little too pro-active ^.^

Re: OOC Chat
So it's possible I got caught up playing Heroes of the Storm last night and when I quit it was well past time for me to make it to bed...

Handle this today. Sorry.

Re: OOC Chat
I'm not sure what else I could do, since I need that information to make my decision on what to do next. If the clues he gives don't require immediate attention, I will go back to the scene of the crime and do my best to gather information there. But those clues might require action too. So that's why I was waiting.


Also, I'll be away all day tomorrow due to warhammer tournament ^.^

Re: OOC Chat
The other thing is, we can use the lounge thread for stuff.  Any stuff really.  Whatever sort of odd scene you think your character might find themselves in.  It doesn't necessarily even have to be related to what is going on IC.  In fact, it probably shouldn't.  It's either my bad or a special case where I did mine and it is somewhat related.

Re: OOC Chat
So okay.  I talked to the ST last night for a bit about this game here and where we were going and stuff like that.  In a way, I was given the thumbs up to break the proverbial 4rth wall here.

So in light of trying to get some ideas and stuff rolling...

Artisan:

I planned on buffing up my firearms traits.  Originally, I was going to use Nigel for that.  But you are the gun guy right?  Why don't we find some way to connect there?

Tyrone:

You're a radio DJ with an enchanting voice and a classic rock station right?  I'm a classic rock person RL, and it's been determined that Electra is one of those people that prefers vinyl.  She has a whole collection of them, and when staying in for the night, she probably plays them on an old school Pioneer turntable from the 70s that is in ridiculously good condition for it's age.  Why don't we find some way to connect there?

Alex:

You're the respectable one so far.  But that Agoge slap probably raises some questions I want to ask you about all IC and stuff.  You (and Julius too) strike me as the moneyed types who just need something to invest in that will pay off.

Julius, Marissa, & Lixin:

I am sure there is stuff we can all relate on somewhere, we just need to figure out where and how, and then translate it to something IC that happens in the lounge thread.

Here are some spoilers on me that will hopefully give y'all some ideas.  I'm going to be the brave one and go out on a limb.  I have faith that the ST will keep this info from going where it shouldn't and being used how it shouldn't.

:D

So...

Industrial Influence:  I have a lot.
Other Influence:  I want to break into Legal, possibly Financial, and definitely Occult.  With both a Giovanni and a Setite in our midst, Occult should probably be a pretty big deal.  Media is another good one because Tyrone can pave the way.  Financial is huge with the resources we all are presenting.  Lixin, myself, and I am sure both Ventrue are very well off.  I suspect Julius is too.  Church and Transportation are also significantly better than people make them out to be.  My personal favorite though is Industrial.  I like to believe it is criminally underrated as an influence.  Some of the others, like Police, Underworld, and Street, are pretty popular and likely tough for us to get our hands on unless we already have hooks.
Resources:  I have more than a lot.
Athletic Stuff:  Electra has 3 brothers.  Baseball, Football, Ice Hockey... Electra is into all of it.  She has a VIP lounge box in both the Yankees and Rangers Stadium / Arena.  Either of those places provide for an excellent meeting place with some privacy.  They can also be used year round.  It doesn't have to only be when a game is on.  I don't know if any of you know this so I am tossing it out there, but stadiums and arenas, especially in a city like New York, serve multiple purposes.  There is always something going on.
Fighting:  I'm a pretty shitty fighter.  But I need to learn!
Animalism:  I have Animal Ken but that's it.  Always looking to raise that one.
Fortitude:  See above
Knowledges:  As a player, I like improving these.  Especially the lores.
Techie Stuff:  Got me beat here.  It's Lixin's area of expertise.
Swimming Pools:  Who doesn't want to see either if not all of these three ladies in bikinis?  Indoor, in ground swimming pool at a gym or hotel, or whatever, would also be a spot to chillax.  It also is something in a scene where we have stuff to do besides write dialogue.

...Anyway.  That's what I've got for now.  Any hitters?

Re: OOC Chat
Marissa definitely has the pool covered. Plus I think both she and your PC could put their heads together for Industrial purposes.

Re: OOC Chat
I'm not objecting to either, Kim.  I got the pool too.  But I am not sure if you understood me.  I don't need help with the Industrial Influence... I need something to combine it with to make it more effective.  I have a whole bunch at the start.

Another one I overlooked yesterday and farted because of it is the High Society influence.

Re: OOC Chat
Playing catch up here..

Tyrone has a very old school blues/R and B station. BB King, Ella Fitzgerald, Robert Johnson, etc. Yes its all vinyl. I sort of envision him as a cross between Petey Green (The movie Talk to Me) and Fritz the Night Owl (Local personality in my area. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frederick_C._Peerenboom )

Re: OOC Chat
Julius actually doesn't have a swimming pool, something about a living corpse in water doesn't sit all that well with him. He would be very willing to hang out with Electra if she can suggest some good investments. He's also extremely interested in getting together with anyone who has ties to the medical field. As a giovanni he has difficulty feeding that others don't face. He really wants to find someone who can provide vitae more easily, such as a bloodbank, that would be perfect.

Re: OOC Chat
I didn't pick John because I honestly thought someone else would.  I figured that since I had a better grasp of the NPCs coming into this game than a pure outsider, I could select an awesome sire that nobody else would go for and leave the obvious choices alone.  It worked.  To a degree.  Lol.

Next.

Good ideas and stuff about your characters.  Your blood bank makes perfect sense, Julius.  If I learned about it IC, I would volunteer the idea that if you could find a way to get your claws on one of the trucks and some of the medical people needed, we could run a blood or plasma drive in my workyard.  I know from RL experience that those places do well.  Workers love to get out of work, and as people, are pretty generous.  I find getting along with blue collar people and / or convincing them to do something like donate blood is pretty easy.

Tyrone:  That's cool... but what are you looking to do with it?  This is a group based game.  So how can you help the group?  I'm not being snide, I am wanting to hear your ideas.

Kim and I had been talking a little bit about some stuff.  It started with the influence.  I think, if I remember correctly, she liked High Society and Legal after my examples.  But Not Hi Sayer can speak for herself.  She has a pretty neat idea for a party.

Re: OOC Chat
Well just put me on the spot there why don't ya lol jk. Seriously though I am thinking of a cool idea to get all of us in a position to do some major hob-knobbing. I'm thinking a party thrown inside her hotel would bring in a few faces of influence as well as a lot of younger kindred. Comments anyone???

Re: OOC Chat
Julius would certainly be up for a party at a hotel. Especially if there are drinks, preferably the type of vitae that's poured into a cup rather than drunk from the vein. Otherwise the screaming might be distracting..

Re: OOC Chat
In reply to OOC_Ninja (msg # 395):

It really depends. I can easily dispatch messages over a large audience for one thing. For some reason, I always say myself as saying cool code phrases on air from time to time that would mean nothing to most people but something important to the right people. I also figure that being as I live in Harlem and most vamps tend to be more upscale/uptight (depending on perspective) I'd have access to a different information source.

And finally, I do also have a network of informants and spies to check in with.

Re: OOC Chat
All of you have IC threads now. Please see the PM to everyone for details. If you have questions ask them there.

I AM DELETING ALL MY PRIVATE MESSAGES EXCEPT FOR THOSE I'VE RECEIVED IN THE LAST WEEK. If you need to send me one START A NEW ONE and make sure your subject makes sense.

Re: OOC Chat
Hey everyone. Starting a long 4th of July weekend today. I'll be posting, hopefully often, the whole time.

Marissa and Tyrone: I'm glad both of you are having fun in the Corn thread but please allow time for the other PCs to post. For those of you that haven't you are, as of right now, officially holding it up. Please post.

I've only received 1 quiz response so I'll give the rest of you through the weekend to get those to me. Almost all of the answers are on this board somewhere, just not necessarily in the obvious places.


And, again, I'll be purging old PMs. PLEASE do NOT start another PM using your RTJ PMs. I'm not even going to look at it. Start a new PM with a NEW subject.
