Re: OOC Forum
Sorry, I am crazy, crazy busy. Aside from my actual university studies, which are a lot of work, I have got one play on this week, so am in rehearsals a lot, and performing Wednesday to Friday. I am in rehearsals for another play for the start of next year, and have been asked to direct a piece for a few weeks from now. I really did not expect to be so busy, but I will try to get more IC posts up. It will be easier once this week's play is finished!

Re: OOC Forum
Sorry for no posts again, really am buried. This show I am doing ends on Friday night, and after that, I hope, I'll have a huge void of time to fill with RPoL goodness!

In reply to Franciszek Gomolka (msg # 331):

All things being equal, I'm going to be kind of busy through this weekend, too.

Re: OOC Forum
OK, my first night of this play is done. We rocked. I am exhausted. Hot bath, and then huge sleep. Tomorrow I get to do it again. But... we didn't suck!

Re: OOC Forum
If our GM doesn't return I am willing to open a mirror of this game but I have two conditions. Someone Will have to volunteer as co-GM in charge of plot. It Will be rated adult.

Re: OOC Forum
I, alas, simply have not the time to GM at the moment. My own GM games are own hiatus for an unspecified period.

However, the show is done, and we played it well. On the second night, we had to get more seating arranged as so many people turned up. And we rocked! So much laughter, and even spontaneous applause. And then, the after-party last night. I did not roll home until six this morning, and am now hungover like a beast. So, today is a day of recovery.

Glad it is done, sad not to be doing it again.

Re: OOC Forum
It kinda seems to me the game is slowing down even without the GM. I've been more or less trying to maintain pace with the rest of you so I'm not spamming the game.

I'm sure s/he's just wrapped up in Thanksgiving doings.

Re: OOC Forum
In the main thread I am kind of stuck waiting on the Captain.

Honestly I am unwilling to let this die for purely selfish reasons.

Re: OOC Forum
Just as a note on the Infirmary thread, it should be picked up in the main thread as the section threads were meant for sideline entertainment separate from the immediate timeline.

Not that we have to follow that schema if it's confusing.  I know that folks often get lost on what character is where and when in the ship.  If separate section threads are what we need to keep things straight, we should consider it.

Otherwise, I just wanted to make sure we get everyone on the same page as to how they're to be handled.

Here's the original description from the GM:
quote:
These threads are actually separate from the Story thread, chronologically. You could be engaged in dialogue with another character in the Engine Room on a Tuesday, but at the same time in the Story thread, you are halfway across the galaxy fighting off a pirate attack. There will also be a closed News thread. This thread will play out like a news station (complete with talking heads,) appearing on the rickety TV in the Argus mess hall.

Re: OOC Forum
Since it looks like we may have lost the GM, let's run with what we have and see if we can get ourselves into trouble before we reach a thread limit and another decision point.

And the man in the back said everyone attack
And it turned into a ballroom blitz!


For instance, Cassie didn't think it looked like the right symptoms for a punch in the face.  Did Kess miss something in his diagnosis?  Was that really just a random barroom confrontation?

What's really happening with you France?  Can you elaborate on it using the rules of the subplot challenge noted in the Game Guide thread?

copper
explain
ill-fated
truck
neat


What does Gus find when he delves into the mechanics of the Life Systems bay?

unite
branch
educated
tenuous
hum


What are Odette and Kess walking themselves into?

houses
increase
quartz
beds
false


Any potential problems with the passengers?

observe
grip
lumpy
tranquil
omniscient


Why has Alan been so quiet?

stitch
thrill
balance
offbeat
stop


What's happened to Faris and the Captain?

steadfast
transport
lick
pumped
inexpensive

Re: OOC Forum
I'd also propose that no one owns NPCs and everyone can write for them.  Just try to keep it in character as first presented by whomever introduced the NPC.

We can all guess how the Captain acts and Odette gave us a pretty good idea of how
the NPCs she's introduced feel about her.

Feel free to use your random words on the NPCs or generate some new ones.  But for the creative process, try not to fish for the words you're looking for by refreshing over and over.  Use what you get and see where it takes you.

A man in a familiar uniform and a swollen bloodied nose clubbed Odette from behind with a branch.

That would use one of my words but I think it needs work.

Re: OOC Forum
I did manage to get two of those words into my post that followed in the Engineering thread. I need to find a way to get Odette back into the main plot thread, too. I think it does help to draw attention to the specific words, so I shall go and do that now.

Odette, why not just finish your shopping and head back to the ship?

She is out on the landing spot outside the ship right now. I am just pondering what sort of mischief I can get into to make an intriguing post. :P
