True, quite true.  It is accurate at this point though.

Re: OOC: Out Of Character
Just a reminder, please post a single action in combat.  If you had already posted an action, then please wait for a GM resolution post before posting again.  Thank you.

I am allowing the players to see each other's threads, but please do not post in threads you know you are not a part of, and be careful with the meta-gaming please.  Thanks.

3 is Ok with me, I think it would be good for the Jarkata+ group to get their space legs before we all get together and the situation on Mon Gazza can move forward a little...

Re: OOC: Out Of Character
The Capella 3 thread is kinda confusing now because characters kept posting after the GM asked for initiative.

So I am not sure what Zurel is supposed to be reacting to. The initial point where Jimmi has drawn his weapon causing L-1337 to turn around (and the GM telling us to roll init), or do I react to L-1337 ordering me to draw on Jimmi?

As an aside I have been playing games here on RPOL since late 2005. My time as a player had mostly been in Rifts. There were some Rifts games where the characters sometimes spent more time killing each other to resolve group conflict instead of whomever the perceived enemy was.

Good question.  The initiative is an interesting question in this regard, and Werner will have to resolve that.

I initially had L-1337 start things by trying to get the jump by shooting out of the bag at Jimmi.  It was not resolved whether or not that would hit, or whether it would be a surprise to have a shot come from a bag or not.  When he asked for initiative my intent was to add dialogue to move the story forward, regardless of the results of the attack.

Zurel has initiative after L-1337, so I guess he would react after either the shot and/or the "turn a gun on this guy for a ride".

This is my first Rpol game, I'm still adjusting to the pace.

In reply to L-1337 (msg # 218):

So Iím going to be transparent and state that I am/was running Jimmi until I finished my current character.  I had asked the GM (Werner) if Zurel could just walk in and blow Jimmi away so as to get him outta the picture. I was asked not to. So I did not.

In running Jimmi, who yes is a coward but I figured he would probably grow some balls if some being or Droid just decided to brazenly start to slice/hack into his ship. Now I had thought about just having Jimmi shoot L-1337 in the back, but decided to instead draw on the droid and verbally confront L-1337. But I also left an in post PM to the GM that Jimmi would shoot if L-1337 did not stop, or if Jax drew his weapon. I even made a strike roll. After L-1337 posted (msg# 168) is where as a player i figured it was time to wait for the GM.

GM asked for init and so after rolling init and posting I waited for the GM to state what the posting order was.

All sounds fine to me.  I am fine with either L-1337 getting shot, or shooting Jimmi.  He does have a 6 charisma though, so he's not going to sit around and pleasantly chit chat about things with a ship overhead.  So I figured he would do what he does best.  *chuckle*  And went with where the chips fell after that.  If Jimmi gets a shot off first that is 100% kosher, especially since that was relayed before hand.  I'm still getting the hang for the timing and expected regs for Rpol etiquette.

At this point what occurs is up to the GM and his decision is final.

Pretty sure that is what we're all waiting for heh.  I could not care less which direction it goes, as long as it leads to moving the story forward and consolidating the options to a coherent story.  I don't envy his task, herding players is as bad as herding cats at times.  And I can only imagine doing so with players across multiple countries and timezones exacerbates that.

Re: OOC: Out Of Character
Yes, please hold any further posts or dialogue as we are in combat (in the Cappella 3 thread).  I have a 1 round outcome post ready, just waiting on the actions of one character.  Any subsequent posts that came after declaring initiative will be treated as a second round action.  Make sense?  I believe that's fair.

Standby while I get the final actions for the characters for round 1, so I can finish my post.  Thanks.

And, no worries from me, learning curves.  This is a new medium for most of the players in the Cappella 3 threads.  And yes, it would be great if we could all post back and forth like a live game, but then it wouldn't be play-by-post, and it would be a live game (whether in-person or via chat or Roll20)...

Re: OOC: Out Of Character
The HoloNet is not exactly like the internet.  You have to think about also when SW was created -- the internet was not readily accessible and an everyday thing.

SW does take place a long time ago...

The HoloNet by this time in the timeline is heavily controlled and restricted by the Empire.

So Werner.  Question, the Scavenger's Guide to Droids has a sidebar on page 27, which talks about Droid Data Ports.  The last one, is a Wireless data port.  Interestingly enough, I can't seem to find any other reference to this anywhere. It says:

"Wireless Link: Some droids have the hardware to access wireless data links. This type of link is only operable when a computer or network also has wireless capability. Accessing networks typically requires passwords or slicing. However, once connected, this type of link is suitable for all types of data transfer, vehicular control, and slicing attempts. An integrated comlink does not allow a droid to access wireless data networks or make slicing attempts wirelessly."

Ok, very interesting right?  I can find one other reference in the book, which is a droid with said link. But no cost associated.  Any thoughts?

As you might imagine, this is one of the most interesting and first upgrades I would like to go for.  *chuckle*

You can decide who's piloting dick is bigger or just go. Decide IC. If you decide IC to coordinate your actions, we can then go to a ship initiative


This made me laugh.

Anyhow I already stated how big my piloting dick is IC.

Well I guess I have the biggest piloting dick.

Sorry Zurel, unless everyone agrees to get your ship, she'll have to wait patiently for your return, or not.

Meh shit happens.

You spelling wasn't wrong for Chimera, and it certainly wasn't a slight at your spelling abilities. For some reason they just spell it differently, even though it's the same mythical creature reference. British English vs American English?  Just want to be different?  Who knows...

I wanted to give others an opportunity to post in the Cappella 3 thread before moving on. If not, I will move ahead. Thanks.
