Re: OCC Thread
Okay folks, last call on character submissions.

I'll be taking them until tomorrow night, then I'll start deciding on the cast.

Re: OCC Thread
Someone just had a good question regarding the time period of the game.

The game will take place in 2003 just a few hours after the altered series finale.

My first episode post will be a quick recap of the final battle, jump ahead two or three hours and your characters begin making their appearances.

Your characters won't know the exact details of the final battle since it just happened.*  If your character already lives in Sunnydale or has been paying attention to what's been going on there, they will know the human population has abandoned the town since that happened a few episodes before the finale.

*The exception being if you want to play a canon but non regular character who was at the final battle, in which case you would be the sole survivor among the heroes.

Re: OCC Thread
I'm now going to begin looking at character stats submitted and start filling the cast slots.

I'm also still keeping the game open for players.  Several people have inquired about the game and/or asked about character ideas, but I've only received character stats from a few people.

Those of you who haven't sent character stats yet still have time to get them in.

And if you haven't RTJed yet, come on in, the red dot is still on.

Re: OCC Thread
Hey troops.

Once I get at least one more suitable character, I'm probably going to get the game going.  Any characters after that can join us in progress.

I didn't specify, but Merry's in her early 20s.  Definitely college-aged.

Re: OCC Thread
I see no problem with any gaps in the character's ages due to the broad nature of the setting.   We can be in the high school one day, the college the next, or anywhere else.  We have the run of the town!!

Welcome Michael Smith to the game.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Still advertising for players, but with four slots now filled, I'm planning to get things going next week after Christmas is over.

Re: OCC Thread
Hope everyone had a nice Christmas.

And we are off and running. Episode 1 has now begun with a recap of the final battle and just a few hours have passed.  Your characters should either already be in Sunnydale or just be arriving.

Re: OCC Thread
Made a change to the Buffy death scene to something less graphic in the initial post. Not planning on excessive displays of violence here.  My intent was to make it clear she was dead and there would be no vagueness to her death.

We shall avoid Monty Python jokes for now.  Well, Merry will; it's not her style. :)

Forgot to take my laptop with me on my trip home, so I'll have to use my iPhone. Expect considerably shorter posts from me for the next couple days.

Re: OCC Thread
Sorry for another edit. Looked up medieval torture device references and picked "pear of anguish" from a list without actually reading its application. Upon review, its a little more messed up than I was aiming for there. Just edited it to be thumbscrews instead.

Again, apologies for the edit.

Re: OCC Thread
Lol, I learned about it during my history course. They have different versions for different orifices. Truly delightful. If I lived in early modern Europe, I would just tell my torturers everything I knew straight off.

Re: OCC Thread
Yeah, in hindsight I actually think I recall it being in a show at some point too (either the Tudors or the Borgias) but didn't make the connection when I initially posted. I thought it best to edit it out as it was more hardcore than I intended and also might be broaching on a violation of rpol content policies.
