Yeah. It came as a surprise for a lot of people. Salty was a bit surprised when I told him years ago. (I was only an E-3 back then.)


Really? Was it that long ago? Hmm.

There we go; a first effort at the whole 'roleplay' thing. I thought it was going to take a long time, it only wound up taking two and a half hours.
Sleep time.

Well, since I found out about your job. I think I was unaware until you had that Q & A with I think it was Nep?

Nah, I have something in mind. I'll fire off a post when I get home later today, and you two can follow suit when you get a chance.

Okay, I revised the profile. I know it's probably a bit more than was necessary, but I like it a little more this way. :3 Let me know if I need to change anything.

Guys I'm really sorry that I have to do this, but I'm not gonna beat around the bush. Long story short, life gave me a big fuck you and I'm not gonna be able to do this RP. Between some money issues and health issues, I'm unable to put in the time that an RP like this would need, so I unfortunately I'm gonna have to drop out of the RP. Sorry to everyone here, especially Viet and Brand. Since Brand the GM here I'm fucking up any possible plot lines Brand had set up, and sorry to Viet since we kind of planned on pairing up.

Wish I could continue, but I know I wouldn't be able to put out advance level content with my situation. Again, sorry and I hope the RP works out for you guys.

Now this is a surprise. There goes one of the cool ones. I'm sorry to hear that life has forced you to drop your anchor down to earth, Phantom. I sincerely hope that whatever money issues you have get resolved, but most importantly for your health to improve! We only get one chance with this body, so we should do our best to keep it healthy! May you have a speedy recovery! =3 If you ever need someone to whom you can voice out your worries or a place to get back to role-playing, shoot me a PM!

Hey no worries Sekai, focus on yourself before you worry about something as trivial as story writing. I'll just make some edits to my character in that case.

I'm also considering adding some kind of skill system, and a system of leveling your characters said skills as the RP progresses.

For example, Stealth Skills, Survavalism, Perception etc. As well as skills or traits awarded for certain actions done in the RP. Since this game isn't done on any kind of 'dice rolling' system, the skills and such won't weigh on a chance of success or what not, but It would be a good way for me to look at your characters and say, so and so's character is gearing towards stealth, I should give them a stealth mission. Another character is gearing towards leadership, I should give their character a leadership role.

What are your opinions? Maybe one of your has prior expereience with this or could provide a good template? Rayn, me and you were both in LOR2, I was imagining a kind of system similar to that.

EDIT: Of course none of this is necessary. I just always thought one of the cooler aspects of some RPs was 'leveling' up your character. Of course most of the time it's fairly superficial, but it was a neat aspect. Your actions in IC and character Bio's is more than enough for me to work with.

I wouldn't mind seeing a simple strengths and weaknesses system, as long as we're clear on metagaming. Knowing what a character is good and bad at helps write convincingly, though personally I'd rather you give me any old situation and I find a way to make it play to my strengths, rather than to have a mission tailored to my character's abilities.

However, I'm vehemently against anything that could, in any way, lead to "Well I'm a rank 3 swordsman, so logically I'll win in a fight". For one it stifles creativity. Also my character is, on paper, much weaker than everyone else's, and I don't want to have to turn him into some kind of sword god for the sake of keeping up.

Honestly, the entire reason I brought this up was because of your post. Haha. I was thinking, your character just came into Sir Elrics camp with knoweldge of the enemy army. Your character could know how many mages the enemy has, the names and appearance of the mages, what kind of formations 'King' Theron likes to use, How the usually set up camp, etc.

And I was thinking 'If Sir Elric had information like that, he would want to try some kind of sneak attack or something (ie stealth mission), it would be such a waste to do nothing, and honestly they are so out numbered they need to do something ballsy.' The problem kind of arose when I was thinking, 'what if he wanted to send some men on a mission at night to set the enemy camp aflame' or something like that. Honestly, I guess I could just have Elric as your character "How well do you think you could navigate their camp".

Yeah, nevermind, there isn't really a need for a skill system, haha. I just talked myself into and out of it in ~ 30 minutes. Although if I did implement one, it would never be "I'm higher ranked, so I win". Yeah, haha, I wouldn't let shit like that fly.
