Sure, that's fine. Sorry to hear you're feeling disheartened, RPOL attrition is wild though, you shouldn't take it personally :) I run a game with some similarities to this one and I think my long-term turnover rate is getting to be something like 90%, even though the game is still ambling along nicely.

Speaking of attrition, did you move Blackwell and Comet Girl to your control as GMPCs or something? Just wondering why they're still on the roster at this point.

Re: OOC
Just to let you know, I'm not forgetting you, I'm just trying to adjust going forward without the two that left.

Understandable :) Are you thinking of adding more people or going with what we have?

Re: OOC
Maybe you all could help me out.  I'm stuck for a bridge to the next day, especially in light of our losing those two.  I have plans for several sessions of Sentinels, but I'm currently stuck.

As an incentive, if I use your bridge, you can get an additional Hero Point to use.

This is from my many years of X-Men/New Mutants but if the academy has one (and this is one of my favorite tropes for academy/school super games Iíve run) we could run a ďDanger RoomĒ simulation.

If the folks in charge want to keep the student bonding going, they could turn us loose with a specific instruction to do something together, in which case we could use Legion's patisserie idea or Aegis's rave idea.

Or, if they want students to feel "invested" as heroes early on, they could throw us into some kind of team activity. Aegis's danger room idea would work for that, as would something like a combat exercise against, say, some of Unity's robots, assuming she's on the staff here :) We could even have a spar against the NPC student team.

Are you currently running a game like that Aegis? I'm always on the lookout for more powered school games ;)

Haha, not at the moment. Iím currently running a mystical focused (just by the PCs that joined) Avengers type game using published Sentinels adventures.

Although Iím considering a Sentinels game set in the Marvel Universe at some point, which could definitely be Avengers Academy or Xavierís School for the Gifted type. I wanted to learn the system and get villain/minion/environment/scene creation down mechanically before I ventured into heavy home brewed stuff.

I apologize if this seems a little railroady.  I'm trying to avoid it, but I can't think of a better way to get the plot started again.

Re: OOC
It seems fine to me :)

On a more general chatting note, it's nice to see more Sentinels games opening lately, but so far they all make me nervous for one reason or another >.> Mostly due to people quickly showing up in them I wouldn't care to play with again. Guess I'll keep on keeping an eye out for other games.

Should I just go ahead and answer Alex? I figured Andrew and Mason would be up next ^^'

That's what I was thinking too, but they've yet to respond.  Go ahead and answer him.  I hope we're not down to two, or I'll have to do a recruitment drive.

Re: OOC
This seems like a natural place for more rp.  I'll let it ride out a few days to see, but I don't want to be accused of doing too little for the campaign again.

That makes sense to me :) I wouldn't let those comments get you down anyways, it's bizarre that Edi would ask for a hiatus and then get put out that she got one!

Re: OOC
Hi.  I think this game system and web site take a little getting use to.

Games flow then stop and flow again.

As for Edi, as a player I found her little hard to deal with.  The up shot is Lefty (the character) seems to think Hindsight is rude.  But me and Andrew can live with that.

However Andrews odd behaviour fits with one of his PRiNCiPLE.  So it works.
Just to say I am enjoying the game and have no issues myself.

Re: OOC
Gee, it's gotten very quiet :( Hopefully it's just a long hiatus. Out of curiosity though, does anyone play in any other good powered school games? I had another one shut down recently and I'd like to play in more.

Re: OOC
I'm sorry, the play by post spark seems to have left.  I'm trying to get it back, but right now all that I'm able to focus on game wise are my voice based games.

I hope to have this taken care of pretty quickly, I don't know if it's a spot of depression or what, but I'll keep you all posted.

Sorry to hear that GM. Hopefully it does clear up quickly, but don't force it, you should only be posting here when you enjoy it :)

Re: OOC
Hi Reader.

I will be here when your ready to move on with the game.  Take your time.
I have been down the rabbit hole (as I call depression) myself.

So I understand, just be kind to yourself.
