Re: OOC 2
Okay, so my current ruling (but potentially not my final word) is that you can use techniques that apply for the finals (he contested rolls, possibly against other players) but not for the prelims (the rolls with a set TN to get you into the finals)

Re: OOC 2
I'm realizing that Volume 2 has a lot more moving parts than Volume 1 (which was essentially a two part braided narrative with a whole bunch of character driven activity thrown in).  So, I'm putting together a wiki (for my own sanity).  If you want something or someone included or referenced (or definitely not included), please let me know.  As always, I'll let you decide what to put on your own character page.

Re: OOC 2
Oooh!  I love wikis.

All sorts of fun stuff!

I like people entries especially - I've got a number of background NPCs who can be included.  Both family and other stuff.

And animals, because Shoji has a few.

And a "Stories of Kedo's exploits" - or, more colloquially - "Stuff that the Ikoma said"

For my part, I'm hesitant to re-read the 4000+ posts over seven years that I wasn't involved in.  So a one-page recap might be nice.

I don't think Shoji has any real secrets, so whatever you put up there is fine.  Daichi has a few, but really those are only due to the fact that I've been too lazy to make up more stories.

BTW: OOC is heading to 1000 posts. Dang we're a chatty bunch! *lol*

Sorry for the dearth of posting, our kitten has been sick and we had to let him go this evening. I'll try to be better later, but right now I'm a little broken.

Re: OOC 2
It's that time again! In honor of Star Wars Day, this year's contest is generally Star Wars themed.

Three correct answers for a spoiler or 3xp. Every answer after that is worth 1 spoiler or 1 xp. There will be no spoilers from the Force Awakens in this quiz:

1) two characters from the original trilogy have cameos in the Final Fantasy JRPG video game series. Who are those characters?

2) one of the actors from the original trilogy is related to one of the actors from the prequel trilogy. Who are they and what roles did they play?

3) one of the actors from the original trilogy also plays a villain from two different DC franchise television shows. Who are the villains and who plays them?

4) Joruus C'baoth from Timothy Zahn's Thrawn trilogy was originally supposed to be a clone of a different Jedi. Who was it supposed to be?

5) Though George Lucas is given credit for writing the novelization of A New Hope, the book was actually ghost written by another author. Who is the author and what other book did he write, set in the same Star Wars era?

6) George Lucas wanted all unknown actors for his primary trio in the original trilogy, he made an exception for one actor. Who was it and in what prior movie had he starred?

7) exactly one actor has played in Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Kingdom Hearts. Who is the actor and what roles did he play?

8) David Tennant, best known as the Tenth Doctor (you knew I was going to fit in a Doctor Who reference somewhere ^_^), also voices a character in the Star Wars universe. Who is the character and what is his job?

9) Which character appears in exactly three movies and has their own television series?

10) George Lucas did not give everyone the same script for Empire Strikes Back. The script Mark Hamill and James Earl Jones got the one where Darth Vader says: "No. I am your father." What did Darth Vader say in decoy versions of the script? (paraphrasing is acceptable)

Re: OOC 2

I'm away from my computer for the duration, so it'll be a couple days before I can guarantee a post. Sorry I didn't warn y'all before the holidays started.

Re: OOC 2
I don't think you're waiting for anything from me, but just in case you are poke me.

BTW -- I think Kasumi is going to try and "sneak off" (when it won't harm her duties) and add her name to the Iaijutsu and Combat competition. She really want to fight Kenshin and Kedo. Strictly training, of course. But she will need to borrow a sword for both ...

Re: OOC 2
Hey all, last semester was not quite as difficult as I had expected, so (having already talked to the Kaze no Kage) the Phoenix delegation is rejoining.  Sorry for any disruption, but I'm glad to be back to playing with you guys.

Also the message box tells me that we're nearing the 1k post limit on the thread.

Re: OOC 2
Personal update:  As some of you know, my life went pear shaped a couple of weeks ago and it hasn't gotten significantly better. The end result being some serious uncertainty about my future employment. I have a couple of weeks to consider my options, but it looks like I'm going to be looking for a new job. Which is why I've been terrible about posting (sorry, but my brain has been mush)

Hope you've found a new job already (or ended up not having to find one).

Re: OOC 2
Okay, so it's been a really long damn time, and I don't have any news on the job front, but at least my personal schedule has stabilized. Just checking to see who's still here before I get things rolling again.
