Re: Jungle Fever [OOC]
I can barely remember what happened, it was so long ago (strange, it feels much longer than a year and a bit). I don't care to do more than skim it again either.

I generally don't mind in-character bickering, as long as it's played sensibly and doesn't derail or hold up the game, and kept in moderation. There will always be friction between personalities, especially when random, different people are forced together.

I also don't mind if a character has gripes and insults, whether in speech or in thought. It's a part of role-play, and can make for entertaining banter. I've usually seen it done well, and done it myself from time-to-time. Done right, it reveals more about the flaws of the character making the insults than the target, or accurately reflects the character the other person is playing.

(Speaking from personal experience, I much prefer insults in character thoughts to ones made about me behind my back, as I've later found happened, twice. Once was from a GM who blew up at me for having in-character thoughts about another character, rather ironically. Apparently he and most the rest of the players, all RW cronies, preferred bitching about me in PMs and IMs and setting me up for a fall rather than openly addressing the problems my character was designed with. :( )

But, of course, it should be in moderation, and players should have their characters make concessions to keep a game running smoothly. If the bickering or insults get too much for one player, a polite message in the OOC can easily tone it down, rather than what we were getting here, an argument blowing up and people storming off or whatever.

(An example. In one game, my PC and another had more-or-less the same job and skill-set, so they naturally became rather competitive and one-upping each other and griping about it. Unfortunately, for various complex reasons, my PC wasn't entirely prepared for the work. We both played that out, with the other picking holes in what my PC doing. When I tried to show she wasn't entirely incompetent and actually knew some stuff, the other PC kept pulling her work apart. I got a little annoyed, but made a polite request in the OOC thread to end the hole-picking. We agreed, he stopped, we toned down the griping, and our PCs worked together much more easily after that. Like sensible adults. :) )

Re: Jungle Fever [OOC]
I think it was just the one other character (who had no social skills on purpose, if memory serves) who got carried away with the bickering.

I'm not the most mature person, but i'm more than willing to leave IC bickering to the IC threads.

And I'm ready to go ahead when you folks are.  :)

Re: Jungle Fever [OOC]
Hello folks.

I am in the process of moving across the country, and computer time/access will be sporadic.  We're also not certain how long it will take to have net access set up on the far side (we cannot arrange in advance, but don't get me started on that).

Please NPC me as required if the game commences sooner.  I will try and post when/as able, but will be very limited.  I'm sneaking on now while wife is upstairs looking at packing clothes :)

See you on the flip side.

Did this game reboot, or were ye all just saying, "Chult just isnt Chult without Abbas".  I know. You tried to be strong :)

Re: Jungle Fever [OOC]
Hello friends :) sorry I didn't see these posts. Yes I was posting to keep the game off the inactive list as there's a lot of material I have here that I want to keep available. A resurrection of the game is unlikely right now; I am an active tabletop player/DM IRL and simply don't have the time for forum-based play.

I won't rule out jump starting the game in the future though and obviously you guys will be the first to know. I hope all is well in your lives and speak soon!

I'm glad life is treating you tolerably, Thread-Weaver.   Real Life can be a Harsh Mistress at times, after all.  :)

I'm involved in many other rpol games, so I'll be around if life frees you up for us.

Re: Jungle Fever [OOC]
Haha xD Is anyone going to play the new Tomb of Annihilation 5e release? The premise reminds me so much of this old game (minus the Calimshan intrigue and crazy gnome professor!) my local group is going to run it though I'll be playing instead of DMing, will be interesting to explore the mysteries of Chult as a player for sure. Shotgunned the Lizardfolk Druid slot as well so there will be lots of turning into dinosaurs, can't wait!
