Re: Another wretched hive of scum and villainy - new OOC
...I will have to post later.  Ron got me thinking about another game, and I just went back and re-read a ton of it, including the ending.

I have to go somewhere quiet and cry, now.  ;_;

Re: Another wretched hive of scum and villainy - new OOC
This game reminds me more of Rogue One (realistic characters and reactions) than the main series of Star Wars (ultra-heroic/Epic stuff).

- Like Rogue One, we live in desperation, not amusing, dramatic action;
- Like Rogue One, we're not a group of heroes; instead, we're a pretty rag-tag, gritty bunch;
- Like Rogue One, we don't fill action sequences with witty quips; we're too busy trying not to die (so far succeeding, hopefully we won't turn out like Rogue One there as well);
- Like Rogue One, we don't get dramatic pauses in the action for 'kiss for luck' or 'heartfelt words' or anything of the like, as again, we're too busy trying not to die.

Note - this is not a bad thing at all.

Edit:

- Like Rogue One, we're doing stuff like 'Steal Plans', 'Infiltrate Enemies', 'Find This Fellow', rather than 'Save Princess, Blow Up Death Star' or 'Defeat Evil Empire Once And For All (sort of/maybe)'.

Like Rogue One, you don't have Jar-Jar Binks.  Or Ewoks.

Okay...since it's marginally applicable to the game, being space-related, I have to say this...

If you're ever within driving distance of the line of totality for a solar eclipse, MAKE THE DRIVE.  Don't say, "Oh, we'll have 95% totality, that's good enough."  It isn't.  One of the most spectacular sights I've had in my life...

Sadly, I was far, far away.  So this is the second partial solar eclipse of my lifetime....

Glad to hear you had a fantastic time!  :D

Rhijans Thanus:
He maneuvered himself carefully between the...whatever-it-was...and Shard, figuring that if he was behind her, she'd be more motivated to keep running than worrying about the thing behind them...and less inclined to look if she couldn't see it because he was in the way.


Rhijans proves he doesn't understand Shard.  ^_^

In reply to Rhijans Thanus (msg # 784):

I'm in about 70% totality. So it was nifty, but nothing spectacular. The 2024 eclipse is going to rolling right over me, though. So that's cool.

Re: Another wretched hive of scum and villainy - new OOC
Lucky, lucky...

We had about 60% loss of light, which translates to 'barely visible to the eye'.  It actually changed the colour of the sky on the horizon to a mauve-ish shade, which was gorgeous, and the light seemed...diffuse.  Which is what it was, so that makes sense.  :D

Also, has anyone heard anything from Juragga of late?  :(  He hasn't been around this game in months.

In reply to Shard (msg # 786):

Rhijans has never been that big on truly understanding people...gets to a point where he thinks he knows what makes them tick, and leaves it at that...

As a result, he's often surprised by the people around him.  *grin*

Re: Another wretched hive of scum and villainy - new OOC
Sorry guys.  I'm not dead, but this summer was unbelievable as I went through the process of moving my oldest off to college.  I understand if I've lost my place in the game - just wanted you all to know I'm alive, and apologize for my absence!

Nobody would dare remove you from the game!

Sorry to hear that things have been crazy for you.   :(

Juragga, you're fired!  LOL. just kidding.  Shard just volunteered to sacrifice herself to save you.  Double LOL.  Just kidding again, your position is safe.

Now lay down in front of the fire, I need a new rug.  :D

Seriously, I kept meaning to check in - just didn't manage.

I'll try to do a bit of reading and see where we're at. :)
