@Palamon

Apologies for the lack of a reply. Work's been busier than usual, so I've been putting in a few extra hours than I normally would and I've just been really tired at the end of the day. I'll try to get a reply to you by tomorrow.


No worries mate. Just wonderin`. Goin' on a cruise for a week with my SO, so I'll be not be likely to be writing so much in that time.

Probably I still add touches like mentioning common/relevant ship and mech types but I am practically finished.

That's part of the hazards of NRPing that the topic overlooked.

GM burnout.

So I'll second this.

@Ophidian But the thing is, we don't need him that much since the rules are arbitrary at best. As in there is none aside from don't be a god modding derp, or an meta gaming edge lord. Not to say we don't need him. But if he has to take breaks. We can definitely move on without guidance. Since I can only hope we are all able to work through any disagreements that come along etc.

Well, you might not, but from the looks of it, he's the guy looking over newbie sheets right now. And I just submitted one. So I figured it was best for me to put my two cents in. :p

also I apperciate your avatar.

Thanks. But the thing is I even haven't submitted my sheet yet >_>. Been working on it incrementally and it just keeps going from a good sized NRP sheet to monolithic. Working on Military Ranks right now. So we might be in the same boat lol.

Though the more time I have, the better it will get haha.

@CowboyCommando If I may be so bold to thrust my own two cents in, but if your sheet is "monoithic sized" and you're now going into military ranks, I would say you are going to in depth and into too much detail than is healthy. I've seen many people drop or just stop since they wanted their NS to look like a novella.

I would recommend only getting the minimum barebones onto a sheet, submitting that for review and then fluffing it up afterwards assuming that none of the change dramatically alter the NS (ie putting in the fact you have blackhole torpedoes AFTER your sheet is accepted or something like that).

There's always a question of want vs what's capable and too much ambition is good for no one. I believe most of the sheets currently accepted where much blander or smaller than how they were submitted for review. I know that my own lacked any formatting besides some bolded section titles and lack any pictures.

So any further comments on my NS?
I even quoted the latest version so you don't need to get back to the page where I made it.
@MissingAxisWould it be fine for me to post it in the Characters page?
I am otherwise ready to post. Maybe I need to pick a starting place but we can discuss that later.

@ClocktowerEchos I mean I'll post it down. But it is no where close to finished! I love detailing my nations so my posts will have more references to draw from, and make interactions more interesting, ambition? My only ambition is write good scifi along with everyone ;)

Heyyo @MissingAxis. I may or may not be joining this RP, just saying ahead of times. Like many here, we've been on a spree of half a dozen RPs like this that continued after each other, so depending on the last one, I might just get my nation sheet here. Hope thats okay if worse comes to worst.

All right, guys, I'm back.

I was going through a brief phase of overworking and barely sleeping, so I've been burned out. Now that I'm starting my weekend and I've gotten through the first days of classes, I should be good to go for a while yet. It looks like there have been some posts in the OOC I've neglected over the last few days, so I'll try and get to those tonight. Before that, though, I've got to reply to the IC posts that are waiting for me.

Hopefully the slowness of the last week is just everyone taking a break. I hope to get back into the groove myself, and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone else's posts as well.

@Willy Vereb Approved if no one objects in 24 hours.

@Ophidian As I've told people before, your sheet needs to be more trimmed down and concise than it is. At the very least, I need a cliffnotes version covering the important parts of your sheet without all the fluffed up language and unnecessary verbiage. There's no section on the sheet that should need to be more than three paragraphs to get the core concepts across.

@CowboyCommando Judging by your own description of how large your sheet is, what I've told Ophidian is likely to be for you, too. If you can describe it as "monolithic", it needs to be cut down. EDIT: Completely glossed over the post where you submitted your WIP sheet, so this was an unnecessary comment. I apologize for the hastiness of my comment. Let me know when you've gotten your sheet to a point where you're comfortable submitting it to acceptance/rejection and I'll take a look at it then.

@Sigma@WrongEndoftheRainbow@6slyboy6 You guys are more than welcome to start submitting your sheets here in the OOC tab whenever you're ready to join the RP. Looking forward to having you.

@MissingAxis Alrighty, I'll get my sheet up soon.

Also question. How interconnected are the nations in the setting? I'm thinking of playing as a Republic made up of a few native species, possibly human colonists(although if that is a no, then no problem) and a sizeable amount of migrants from other nations if possible.

Edit: Also, would this be ok? Would it mess with any current plotlines and all that?

Edit 2: Err, disregard the map :P

I'll wait until after FlightofIcarus is added to the map.

Add me to map, maybe?

Also, @Sigma, your claims are overlapping mine. My claims; 0915, 0815, 0715, 0716, 0916, 0816. But, I do approve of the migrant idea. You can have Vorskel people. My nations have not made contact with aliens at this moment, but they do have reason to believe aliens are close. But some generational colony ships were sent out in the STL era. Perhaps one got lost and ended up in your territory?
