Discord renewal!
I have added an optional question about Moves, the central mechanic of Masks, to the Polls and Debates thread and would like your input.  Essentially, I am trying to pace the game to your inclinations.

As mentioned above, since your characters can't die or really be hurt for long, game balance isn't so much a thing.   And the game is about emotional growth which all characters can do until their exit.

Also, we are in the Marvel Universe where characters never stay dead for long (just playing hooky) and the entire timeline can be written and rewritten over and over again ("One More Day").  It is the most forgiving setting for mistakes, retcons and reboots I can imagine.  So nailing down the particulars of Playbooks and other rules strictures is important and we are working towards that goal, it is not the immediate priority that it might be in other games.  The Marvel Universe regenerates like Wolverine. :-)

Being a Brain Svetlana would certainly want to know more about how this device works, though I can understand not wanting to go into the technical details. Still, can we use it to disguise our appearance? Is there some way to tweak the disguise? A ring that just hides itself doesn't seem very useful...

I think the known NPCs thread is a bad idea as it is now - the GM is already having a hard time keeping up and giving him something else to do that is about the game but is not the game is just going to make it take longer to get anything moving.

I'm the one that posted it and will try and update (usually during the week vice the weekend) so it shouldn't impinge on or GM's time.

Don't mind me, just dropping images related to the game. I hope no one minds.

Re: Welcome to our new Co-GM, OakMaster! :-)
Even more busier than I expected these past couple of days and at a particularly busy time.  However, I am rescheduling later this week for extra hours to work on this game.  I'm hoping to make up for lost time by the weekend...

Re: Welcome to our new Co-GM, OakMaster! :-)
A fair amount done tonight.  The likely final post of IC thread #2 will be posted tomorrow.  I just couldn't quite get it done tonight.  I think you will enjoy it and one more scene should be done.  We can then move forward with other scenes.  :-)

No worries here about the junior team, boss. A little iffy on their introduction, but I'm liking what they offer so far.

We're excited to see you more, Jubilee!

Re: Welcome to our new Co-GM, OakMaster! :-)
Back when I used to laugh at Bill Cosby's standup (before we all knew better :-( ), he had a bit about Tonto and the Lone Ranger.  Essentially, Tonto's whole purpose in life was to go to town and get beaten up thus forcing the Lone Ranger to rescue him providing this week's plot.

That's what the Junior Team is all about.  They aren't complete screwups, though, and do they look up to y'all.

I hope to introduce another member when things settle down here a little.  Copycat's currently brief entry is now on the Wiki.

Re: Welcome to our new Co-GM, OakMaster! :-)
I have deleted some threads, trimmed the game down to one forum page.  I still have the original threads saved to my hard drive so they can be exhumed if need be.

Sorry, I'm trying to catch up to everything that's going on.  Looks like I missed one mini adventure, but I might still be able to join the other :)

Watcher, where is the addy for our wiki posted?

If you look up at the top header for RPoL, over on the right you'll find Game Wiki right next to Game Info. It's always gonna be right there, waiting for you to show it some love. Will you? Will you make the wiki's dreams come true?

Re: Welcome to our new Co-GM, OakMaster! :-)
Hello all,  I'm sorry I have been away for a few days.  The Orkin Man (termite inspector) had to check our house for 'guests' and the place was an utter wreck.  So it has been non-stop cleaning for awhile.  But the good news is now I have some time.  And almost all of my efforts can now be spent on the IC parts of the game, the actual story.

Ooh, time has gotten away from me this week. Just a heads-up that I will be on vacation Friday-Monday. I will have access to RPoL via my phone, but will likely have very little time to post.
