Re: OOC 2
Maybe I'll look around for those swords that are missing, but the magistrates are too busy pursuing secret societies to suss out.

Re: OOC 2
there are definitely clues there (also, they sent a Kitsuki Magistrate in that direction)

Re: OOC 2
Ok, I'm going to start asking around about the swords, since I'm not really privy to any of the clues. I'll post in the main thread about it. :)

By the way Shishako... I wasn't trying to have Hajime send you away IC.

He just wasn't going to stand in the way if she had to answer the call of duty.

Re: OOC 2
I didn't think you were; I just needed to get out and about and meet and greet. Currently I'm milling about the public areas, meeting (NPC) people. I didn't really have any major input on the investigation, anyway, and it seemed well in hand.

Re: OOC 2
It is my sad duty to inform you that Otomo Hajime has dropped out of the game due to health concerns.  While he hopes to make a full recovery, he has reached the point where he has no expectation that he will be able to return.

Here's to hoping that he recovers soonest.

Re: OOC 2
Yeah, no kidding. That does put the Daidoji Twins in an odd predicament, though ...

Re: OOC 2
Okay, so it's been a bit quiet here, which means that it's roll call time!  I just want to know who is around so I know which plot lines I need to nudge personally and which ones I need to prune.

Re: OOC 2
once I know who's around I'll start summarizing events and reassigning people to more plot centric threads so that I'm not trying to run eight different plot lines for five people.

Re: OOC 2
I've been asked to reboot this game, but since the current plot didn't hold people's fancy, I'm looking for thoughts on where y'all would like it to go

Re: OOC 2
Hmmm ... well ...........

Good question. Probably the biggest question is "who's still here?" That will make a difference, I think.

And by reboot do you mean "move forward a bit" or "redo everything"? I wouldn't fancy the latter ...

Re: OOC 2
Probably more like redo from before the start of Winter Court (but after the battle), so basically volume 2.  I think there's just not enough structure for most people in a court setting without a clear plot

 I didn't realize people were struggling with the plot myself... I'm up for most anything, as ever.

Re: OOC 2
I think part of the problem is that hardly anyone cared about the backdrop plot (the tournament) and almost everyone was going after a different subplot.

Given that this game started out as a troubleshooting team mission, how do people feel about going back to being a Crane troubleshooting team?

Re: OOC 2
Well ... I was good with the tournament, but none of my characters could actually participate. The closest I got was Kenichi having the Imperial Legion sponsor Kedo. Which I rather enjoyed, actually ...

If we go back to all Crane, then I'll have to drop Kenichi, right? Well, he'd loose his really really cool Nodachi anyway ... *lol*

Re: OOC 2
Kenshin could be the Scorpion part of a joint Crane/Scorpion task force (ironic, yes, I know ^_^)
sadly, yes, poor Lesson probably never would have gotten kidnapped >_>

Re: OOC 2
Byako wasn't well suited to the tournament stuff either, but she was making her way around, and she was trying to be involved in as many plots as possible; subplot or primary, whatever she could find out about, haha.

Re: OOC 2
yeah, and I think I had too many subplots going and not enough people with enough information to bring those subplots together

Re: OOC 2

 Kedo (and for some reason my autocorrect keeps trying to turn that into Jedi) would probably work well with a request from one of the Crane officers to do something useful with his time - particularly since he's already 'working' for them as a guard on their gate so a better born Bushi can attend the tournament... Having one of them for example, order him as a guard (rather than ask him as a favour) to look after Kaori he couldn't refuse and the tension would be entertaining. ^_^
