A Gms job is not only to host an Rp but to help their rpers leave an Rp better than when they started. So I am going to push you to go a bit further. This week I have a challenge for all my peeps in my Rps.
Each post your make in the next 7 days, pull up your character sheet and look at your characters Psychological Section. I want you to pull a trait, a like, a dislike, quirk, habit - something directly from the sheet and work it into your post. Reflect your vision for your character and add depth.
This does NOT mean fluff your post. I am adding a 3 para LIMIT to each character this week. Remember good writing is not about length but about content. It isn't about gilding the lily until it is too heavy to stand alone. It is about a good balance of character, content, and action. (This message will be repeated in each RP OOC)
New Chat Area: Please note that there is a new chat room on the server titled Reminders. I will tag people there if something comes up so it isn't lost in other chats. Others are free to use it to remind people to move their posts over to SI so it isn't lost in the chat mix. (Only post a single reminder to a person and only post to remind to move to SI please)
I will remind for counters there but do note I don't always remind for counters. In fact I rarely do, so don't use it as a crutch. Also, make sure to check chat DAILY - that is required in the rules so you can see announcements and the like. Always check before you post!
Final Reminder: Alright, dropped a reminder in chat but some aren't checking chat. So this message will repeat in every RP and please take this as your final notice. When joining an RP I GM, part of the rules include joining the chat and the back up forum. This also means checking chat daily. Some aren't. (How do I know? Because the back up forum has had announcements people are not logging in to check, which is required and those announcements were linked in chat.) Please don't make me be an Evil GM Overlord and enforce the ~removal from RP for not following the check these things daily~ rules. You have 24 hours if you haven't been checking in. (Yes, I do check this.)
Use Your Skills: Remember this is a mystery RP. I will need to see a lot more skill use from here on out and people actively trying to stay on top. If you are not having your character do things, if you are not requesting rolls, I am not going to give you updates. I'm too tired for it anymore. >.>
You will have to ask for rolls
You have to use the Skill Rolls information layout for rolls.
You don't I ignore it.
Update your CS: The CS in the Original OOC is not updated to fall in line better with my other RPs and updated for where we are in RP.
Apartment Number has been flipped out for Residence - You can keep your apartment number - just add in ~apartment building name~,Justice, California after it.
You must add in 1 more positive trait and 1 more negative personality trait to your current 4 so there is a total of 6.
Do NOT edit your cs beyond that.
You have 36 hours from this post to do that small edit.
Relations: We have a new sheet for this chapter
Remove previous clue/relation sheets - want them cleared out.
Add in the new ones
Update for relations of our PCs - there are not many.
Note - everyone will have heard of Riley as she is a ~famous rock star~ so have to at least have that one
You do not have to do NPCS or the like. Just the current Pc's in the original OOC update IF your character knows them - outside of Riley of course. Everyone has to do Riley.
You have 7 days from this post to update the Relations.
Counters: There is NO counter reset for this update. You go off your previous counter.
Rewards: There really wasn't enough ~time covered~ in RP itself to pick up any new skills.
All Rpers receive 1 brand new Insight Card
An insight card means if you get stuck, lost, have no fucking clue what to do, you drop this card for your character to suddenly have a light bulb go off in their head and get a wonderful idea to put them back on the path.
This card is good in an LAU or RMU RP that you are a part of.
While no one actually solved the last case someone did figure out a bigger picture moment.
Morose is rewarded 1 DttS Spoiler Card to cash in at any time.
It is time to get back down to business, we are officially off holiday right now. This is what your counters are currently standing as. Once you post again you will go off your last counter. I will update this post daily until everyone catches up. Once your names vanishes from the list you are on your own personal counter.
Okay peeps, we are going on a mid-year break. Everyone could use a little down time, so I am freezing counters right now. Listed below are your current counters, they are hereby frozen until the 21st. On the 22nd I will move counters up by one day. If you are on day 7 today, they will mean they will go to day 8 on the 22nd, so get a post in. Anyone that does post between now and the 21st will have their counter refrozen at 1 until the 22nd. Basically this means everyone gets a week off. Enjoy the down time, get caught up, and so forth. We will pick up on the 22nd! Happy Summer Break!
Lady A - 1 Fantasy - 1 Drago - 3 Nallore - 4 ONL - 5 Sigil - 6 Morose - 6
"Alright I got you." Riley said towards Alicia as she looked towards Pyria for a moment and gave her a slight nod, and started to pull the woman back up and onto what the remains of the stairs were as well. She leaned forward slightly taking a few deep breaths and looked towards Alicia for a moment and then looked over at the six foot gap that was now between them and safety as well. She turned to look at Alicia with a confused look seeing the gleam in her eyes before being picked up and tossed across the gap screaming at the sudden manhandling and being tossed. Riley landed in the big guy's arms, looking between Caesar and Keystone then turning her attention over towards Cecily and quickly made her way towards her roommate and pulled her into a hug and kissed her. She was really happy to see her, and it felt like it was a really long time since she last saw her.
"This wasn't really the homecoming I was hoping for, god I missed you." Riley said with an awkward smile, as she looked over and watched as Alicia did the same to Pyira and tossed her over the gap, landing by Caesar when he grabbed her and then Alicia jumping the gap as well. She took a moment and looked towards Roy and gave him a slight smile and nodded towards him, she was grateful to see him again. Riley then paused when she heard some kind of animalistic noise and then Alicia telling them to run. She was sick and tired of this place now at this point and quickly bolted up the stairs. But she watched Cecily as she tripped on the stairs and quickly went over and helped her back up to her feet. "Are you okay?" Riley managed to ask her, while taking her hand and quickly started going up the stairs again.
