OOC: In those Quiet Hours
Per request, I've made an official OOC thread since a couple folks have expressed restlessness at not being able to chat!

To summarize the messages I got: Yep I'm starting another game! I'm feeling newly inspired so I'll be gathering my thoughts for the next day or so. I'm going back to the guided freeform basis. I'll be using the Patchwork Kingdoms model but mixing in the flavor of a Theogenesis game (As you might have already seen by looking) Players being gods and all that. But I also want to avoid a game where everyone gets a little pocket realm where they hide away and I end up running 5 solo games, so things will be a bit different. Plus I also want to fall into the Theogenesis trap where the game sets up the players to turn up their nose at everything since they're gods and that means they're inherently right.

In essence, I'm aiming at a game with the existential feel of a Theogenesis game, but mixed with the fast pace and reward structure of the Patchwork Kingdoms style. Top that off with a game where the central theme is that the Divine are trying to find where they fit in this new cosmos.

Anyhow, that's where my mind is at right now. I'll likely be around for the remainder of the evening as I poke at things.

I'm feeling inspired with the new concept of the game so rather than over plan we'll start simple and go forward with what is outlined in the rules right now. Anyone who is interested in playing go ahead and send me your concept and we'll get the ball rolling!

Yes I am looking forward to aspect selection! It was an almost addictive part of the old game and thus my favorite aspect of it - all pun intended.

I'm also intrigued by the idea that lurker could possibly be joining us this time too.

I think I can say confidently that Parchwork Kingdoms was the most succesful game I've seen on Rpol, so I'm happy to take part on it's spiritual succesor.

I believe that Patchwork was one my favorite games and systems to play in. I'm just at the point that Talon games are a complete success and I want in them at all costs lmao

Lol I love Talon's games as well but my feelings are starting to be hurt a tad (I'm kidding of course, Talon is great.)

When Talon doesn't give you any calls of texts for months then shows up at our front door.

I'm hurt, but you son of a bitch come right in!

I'm just glad everyone had fun! That's the aim of a game after all!

And it looks like that's all the updates for the moment! Everyone gets a bit of private time to try on the new coats of their characters before we throw all these larger than life folks together! If anyone is waiting for me to respond to a private message I'd like to take this time to remind folks never to be shy about prodding at me twice, I'm still terribly scatter brained and still very prone to entirely forgetting messages if I read them and don't respond to them immediately (Which can happen often on a work day)

Lots of fun character concepts here, it'll be fun to see them start interacting soon and watch how folks grow!

Very, very like a berry
ripe and red and ready to eat~

I just want the character to get established in a game well enough! I really loved the concept and never got to flesh it out enough. It'll be fun to see it go through a patchwork environment with the rest of you!

A sauce of life bursts out as I bite into it!

I believe I've said this already, but Myth & Roid are my favorite Japanese artist at the current and their songs rock for inspiration <3

I'm looking forward to Neru meeting the others. Specially Seris and Nox, since they are two embodiments of childhood enemies: Darkness and The Wolf.
