Re: OOC
I suppose in this case, that's up to you guys. I can if that's what most of the players want. Right now I have everyone's story integrated and planned for, I also have the threads of former players attached as well.
So if we reboot it'll be more efficient towards the goals and stories of the current cast. If we keep it going, I might post a recap, and cut the other threads.

Re: OOC
Mostly I ask cause there's a lot of cringe in my characters though fun as it would be to see them become lore. Masked girl being a feral animal that warms up to people might be salvageable as not cringey but Eve thats gonna take a whole lot of work. Lol.

Re: OOC
You can redo characters if you want. I can do some work to the story.

Re: OOC
I remember Eve being an emo death seeker with nothing to live for and dying to the Crystal infection which even cured still has the emo death seeker thing. But Mask girl was friendly relatively with one character. She still has her off moments when her sanity gets a bit to awakened and when she's enraptured by feeling but I do think I could work with her. Eve's probably going to need a motivator to give up on the death seeking if she survives.

Re: OOC
I don't think I'd worked enough with Eve for me to be sure quite how to integrate her fully into the story like with Aimee or Eno or Alice, so we can discuss that if you dm me.

Re: OOC
Woah, the podcast I listen to while thinking about Eno came back too. All the stars are lining up.

I'm fine keeping Eno as is. Even if he is inadvertently emo sometimes. The poor guy needs some closure at least!

Re: OOC
Okay, keeping Eno and Alice as are. Eve and Mask are in discussion I think.
Anyone else who wants to join I'll give... two weeks? I think that's fair. Not sure how often people sign in. Plus it's been a while.
After that I'll clean up the roster.

Re: OOC
Wow, this game has been off my list for a long time. When I left RPoL after the chaos of Covid put my mental health in a fun spiral.

Wild that it popped back up. I don't think Leroy will return, but don't mind keeping Hale the way he was.

Re: OOC
That works. I'm reviewing the game so far, and there are some things I'd like to do better for foreshadowing and what not. I may do a reboot afterall. We'll see still considering it.
Plus it'll allow me to properly integrate the characters and pace things a bit better then before.
Any one have a preference one way or the other?

Re: OOC
Hi everyone. Been a while.

I've been lurking and keeping quiet because I've been giving quite a bit of thought to whether I'd want to give this another try. On review I'm actually pretty surprised by how much Neva still resonates with me (although I'd definitely want to give her backstory a significant trim for brevity's sake), and I think I'd be interested in having another go if you'll allow me the chance. It'd be nice to have her reach the party proper and get to express a bit more of herself.

Re: OOC
Okay looking at the people who are currently returning, and the last time some others logged in, I think I'll spend te next week reviewing everything for a reboot. That way all the characters will get to properly interact with each other and be integrated into the story.
Especially since where we left off is kind of an awkward point.
So if any character changes could be submitted by next week that would be excellent.

Re: OOC
I've got a bit of a preference for retaining the progress that was made; if that is possible with a soft reboot. It could be as simple as retconning some people to have joined in the town in mirosse that Eno boarded the airship from and revising the battle a bit, and have some time to chat in the airship following the encounter (but before the manor).

I'm not sure how that fits into Neva+Hale storyline though.

I don't mind being a newcomer/snuck onto the airship?

Re: OOC
I don't know what the endgame of the Side Story thread was and whether it's something still salvageable in some form, but personally I would have no problem retconning my prior involvement in the game if it helps other people preserve the things important to them.

Re: OOC
I mean, if you want, Neva, we could have travelled together for a bit?

Re: OOC
I was going to keep the side story for... reasons, those who saw it may know what those reasons are.
However, after consideration, due to its current length, I think it might be best to retcon it for now, and applying it later on.
I think I will take Enos advice and go for a soft reboot, before the manor on the airship.
I don't recall the exact timeliness, but I believe that was after the encounter with Amleth? That might be significantly earlier though. I'm still reviewing and checking my notes.

Re: OOC
I just want to confirm, are Hale and Neva travelling together? Cause I'm pursuing a thread of thought regarding Neva, and was wondering if Hale is involved before I run it by.

Re: OOC
Honestly I don't know.

It's been thrown out there as an option but that's all it is for now. If it suits the narrative and your intentions better one way or the other then I'd imagine we'll go that way without issue.

The big Bad uses magic to reshape reality and the plot and put people in the locations they need to go for the story to continue smoothly.

Re: OOC
The big bad wants to stop being the big bad and thus reshapes reality in a way that leads to the fall of the big bad.
