In reply to Kazuya Yamamoto (msg # 11):

Ya know, I kinda like this. :) So, who would be willing? We got a person playing in each class, right? Would one of you per class work? Plus one of you be a GM? (Heh, just realized I could type up a sort of resume for possible co-GMs to fill out. XD)

I mentioned before I usually have an rpol tab open on my computer, so I'm game for taking over a TA or two if you feel I'd be up to it. Your call, obviously, no worries either way.

Your willingness is up to you and your ability your measurement. The co-GM resume will have a section regarding TA sign up. Those signing up for the same Element as their character or more likely to get that Element. I'm only going to type up one form, co-GM on top and TA Registration on bottom. It'll probably be really simple and not very formal, but it'll be based on what I feel is necessary for my aid.

You prefer people to TA for their own character? Or am I missunderstanding

In reply to Roy Unda (msg # 15):

In order to keep people in their same region of involvement with their Element, my thought process was to have players TA their own Element. Granted, for those classes with only one student, it could be... a bit boring, probably a bit useless, but it keeps that Element in the moment of that Element. However, I am open to suggestions. I could have it that you may TA the opposite of your a Element or a similar Wlement in order to avoid needing to talk to yourself in game.

Personally, I think talking and reacting to yourself would be a little less fun, then its more monologue or short story than RPing as opposed to working with a different poster who might present a different approach than you would and make the story a little more dynamic. But thats just me. Thats not to say working in one element as assistant and student couldnt work.

I defer to your judgement in this case either way.

Would it not be more simple to have one or two players take control of all teacher NPCs, except for the teacher that has to teach his own character? That way, no one RPs alone, and everyone wins :P

The resume will ask how long you are on rpol daily. I think people are on most often will not only be some of the first to be hired, but also be allowed/required to take on more classes (XD) excluding their Element. ;)

It seems like I have plenty of volunteers to help me run this game, so I have a few questions that will help me decide who I'll "hire" for a co-GM and who can be a TA. I chose to just ask the questions rather than make it like a document I'm just not in the mood anymore to try it.

Co-GM and TA
1. How much time do you spend on RPoL daily? Weekly?

2. How do you feel about making lists and/or threads?

3. How many characters do you run? How many do you feel capable of running?

I would suggest that if a character is made a TA, that they remain anonymous in regards to their original student. For instance, if Aileen took over the role of my TA, i might react differently to the post than if I had no idea who was the person behind the TA's posts. Just a thought.

*gasp* Are you suggesting... t-that you have feelings for me, Roy-kun? :3

xD As far as I'd love to aid in running the game, I'm afraid I'll have to pass. The sheer amount of work I need to complete during the day prevents me from being active in more than two games at once, and only as a player. I will be more than happy to help anyone out with their posts if they require assistance, though! :D

That was supposed to be made into a PM, Shiro, so only those who could be up to the task responded. >.<

A new character must be made to be the TA.

Wow, probably not off to a great start by saying I'm not smart... XD Whoopsies

I'm unfortunately in a similar situation, that and I suffer from the chronic illness of sporadic typing syndrome. . . Or, writers block and then having a day where I can write loads. XD Plus, I've been given some articles to write elsewhere so writing time has been allocated elsewhere... Dun, dun. DUUUN. Scary stuff.

Unfortunately Roy, I'm the kind've person who can pin-point a writing style, I've been able to pin-point different people over different games via their writing style alone. :P That, and when I especially enjoy that particular type of wording I begin dribbling over them and it's like-.. It's you again-... I get to read all this writing and *Foams at the mouth.* XD

I'm unsure if others are like that, but sometimes hiding who it is unfortunately turns out to be redundant merely because it's easily found out. It is a very good issue though! One which, may not actually have a solution. :/ And alike to Alieen if you need help with something, feel free to slap my wrist and get my attention. ^^'

Now I'm curious if we're in any of the same games because I know a few players who write similar, but I know I try to write each character with a little different flair

The most distinct way to sniff me out in other games, is if someone's mentions building a moat. Then yep, that's me :p

As for me, let us simply say that Lilith is a recurring character of mine. xD

It might be necessary to look into TA or co-GM again, it seems we've slowed to a halt, even in the IC thread.
