Re: OOC 2: The Second Coming
I was thinking we could have a roleplaying segment here either before or after the imminent encounter. Between the encounter itself and a brief free roleplaying session I hope we can all try to get back into the groove of our characters. I know it has been a while and we're all rusty.

Yeah, it has been awhile.

And Cirno's still Drunk and Poisoned, so if she has another drink she might just very well pass out.

So...

Does anyone want to post? We are no longer obligated to stay with Yukiko, and the NPCs have moved on.

I got nothing in the way of a reply.  Cirno's incredibly plastered and about inches away from passing out.

Re: OOC 2: The Second Coming
So obviously we're on a bit of a hiatus here, as some of us are having connectivity issues and we are relatively short on active players. I have a number of other projects floating around in the background now, but I figure that now would be a good time to consider addressing some of the issues people might have with this game system.

I feel that part of the problem we're having is that after long periods of inactivity, the system is daunting to pick back up. I've heard it expressed by some people that it is hard to get back into the skin of a character -- this is understandable from a roleplay standpoint but it should not be happening mechanically. Now, I have my own ideas of where some of the stumbling blocks may be, but I'd like to hear what everyone thinks are the most important issues and ideas on how we can address them.




One prominent issue we have had since the outset is the friendship system. We've addressed this issue before, and I know that some changes were made, such as moving the cap per phase to 10 instead of 5, and I believe we've had some discussions concerning a system overhaul, but I cannot find them if they existed. Unfortunately, I'm at a loss for ideas at the moment, but everyone should feel free to throw some out. I need them.




We recently had a discipline overhaul. The discipline-based system we have in this game was designed to make it so that people could make a character more or less how they wanted. We've since discovered that the feat system is not only far more limiting than was our intention, it is also in some ways overly complicated and difficult to properly balance. I'm considering a complete system change, but I would like to hear opinions on the matter.

Re: OOC 2: The Second Coming
I've said my opinion on the system changes as well as the friendship system.  I'm interested in seeing what other people pitch.

Re: OOC 2: The Second Coming
I'll think on it, but I'm a little tired at the moment, and I also don't have time to really communicate whatever thoughts I currently have as it is.

But I'll be thinking on this!

Re: OOC 2: The Second Coming
Hey all,

I'm in Minnesota through the 26th, perhaps we could meet? My phone number is 630-272-1033.
I hope we can catch up on how everyone has been doing.

Re: OOC 2: The Second Coming
I'll make sure to inform the others who might not be checking this game or RPoL this week, but I'm not sure if I'll be very available this week, unfortunately. There was a death in the family yesterday, and I'm not sure what plans are going to look like this weekend. I do have Friday off work though, so if nothing appears to be coming up I may be available then.

Re: OOC 2: The Second Coming
So things are a bit busy at the moment and I don't have a lot of time to make large battlefield posts like I used to, but if it were possible I would still like to explore the plot of this game at some point. Kenjiro is basically done with RPoL at the moment so we're down by two PCs, not counting people who were either never active to begin with or who have reasons to have sparse access to the game.

In short, I don't think this game is going to be getting back to what it was, but I've been considering ways to use the story I had and not just throw it away. The only idea that I had was to make the game freeform, as such a game is significantly easier to post in and maintain than an ambitiously scaled SRPG. But obviously, I would only even attempt it if it's something people would actually want to do.

Thoughts?

Re: OOC 2: The Second Coming
I'm alright with it, if only because it will allow me to have Cirno be properly cinematic (and hilariously overpowered with failure) in her abilities.

That's totally not the only reason.  I was having fun with this game, and I'd like to see where it ends up.

Re: OOC 2: The Second Coming
Its been a while since ive commented on this, lets be honest i like the concept of this game but i feel freeform is the best way to go at this point if you even decide to pick this game back up ever.

Re: OOC 2: The Second Coming
I'll join any continuation of this campaign. I tried to run my own version of a fire emblem game here on RPOL, but it didn't work out.

Re: OOC 2: The Second Coming
So, currently my plan for this game is to write out a brief summary of each major story arc so far so that everyone can recap without reading the whole game over again. Once that's done, and it may take some time as I have a lot of other projects I need to work on, we can try to get a more free-form continuation of the plot going.
