What is the condition of the person we saved? I am stuck on the cellphone for a day or two so I most likely missed it.

Re: OOC Cantina
Anyone else getting just a wee bit worried at how long it's been since our GM logged in?

Re: OOC Cantina
Our GM hasn't responded to PMs or rMail. He last logged on two weeks ago which is kind of amusing as he's kicked players for not logging on for much shorter periods. I can therefore, only conclude that he's ghosted his own bloody game.

I hope he logs back in and proves me wrong but I've seen this too damn much on this site to be optimistic.

Re: OOC Cantina
As regrettable as it is, games on RPOL, and it seems especially Star Wars games, just don't typically have a lot of legs.  A game that lasts over 1000 in-character posts has been the exception instead of the rule in my experience.  It's annoying, but I've been on the short end of that stick so many times that I just don't spend all that much time worrying about it.

If the game continues, great.  If it doesn't, then I'm going to wish you guys good luck with your future gaming endeavors and move on.

Re: OOC Cantina
The only GM I've ever known to last is ManofDusk. He is on vacation atm but first game I've ever seen come to a conclusion here. He will be starting a new game soon.

Re: OOC Cantina
All of my Star Wars games are sputtering out or dead which, given my love of Star Wars, is very disappointing. Iím honestly surprised the GM ghosted this game given how active he was and how invested he seemed. Family emergency, sudden illness-those I can understand but I donít see why someone canít take 20 seconds to write a quick post letting us know whatís going on.

Re: OOC Cantina
Since the game is at a stand still....

What do you guys think of the idea of a free-form, Star Wars based game?

Re: OOC Cantina
I'll give it a go too, any idea what time period/which side it would be set?

Re: OOC Cantina
I appreciate your enthusiasm and interest Arianna and Morai.

I'm really looking to have a bit of a discussion though.  Maybe the better question would be would you prefer a D20 Revised Core Rules game or a free-form game?

And what time period would be of most interest?
Or what character types would be of most interest?
Or what is that really cool game scenario you've always wanted to play in, but never got the chance?

I've had a few scenario's floating around my head, but I'm not fixated on any of them.

A few meta game frustrations that I'll mention to hopefully spur on some more discussion...

Lack of participation/commitment to a game
Overpowered characters concepts
Complaints when bad decisions lead to bad outcomes
Expectations of characters advancement/acquisition without putting in the homework

Well, enough rambling for now

Re: OOC Cantina
I'm always down for d20.

Op characters sort themselves out. Most get angry when the rp characters surpass them.

Re: OOC Cantina
I'm a role-player, not a roll-player, first and foremost. That said I tend to pitch ideas that are a little OP then work with the GM to tone them down. It's not that I fancy being OP but when the concept comes to me I run with it and then work with the GM to adjust. I don't cry when I have to snip things off.

You won't get that from me. I'm here to game and I love to write.

Goes back to participation for me. Why be here if you're not wanting to take the time to be active and actually play?

Re: OOC Cantina
So here's what I'm thinking....

I can set up a new board and add the three of you in (Arianna, Manaen and Morai) and we can continue to discuss what sort of game.  I may invite and/or would be open to additional people being invited in, but ultimately, I like to keep player count down to 6-8.

Once we've got that more or less figured out, we can then open it up and advertise for additional players.  Participation in the discussion does not obligate anyone to actually participating in the game if anyone wants to opt out.

Nothing's going on here, but I still feel it's a little inappropriate to utilize someone else's game board for such a discussion.

Thoughts?

Re: OOC Cantina
Anyone else fancy joining us in the new game being put together? Itís set during the Old Republic era, slightly before the start of the war. Revanís ability to forestall Emperor Vitiateís attack is failing and the first attacks against the Republic are coming.
