With the go-ahead from Blitzy (don't worry, he'll join us soon) I am excited to welcome you all to the world of Ithea with the first IC post! As I acclimate to writing a story I will improve so apologies for any missteps. If there are ever any inconsistencies or lapses in my judgement please feel free to shoot me a message and I can edit my post and make an addendum in the OOC.
I encourage collaborative posting, but it is not required. Kassarock and Lauder, your characters would have been on the same ship so if you'd like to write as though your characters have met that would be fine! Regardless collabing is fine for anyone in the party- just keep me in the loop. I am also available for collab posts. I find that these can sometimes ease the restraints of forum posts in combat and dialogue situations. That also brings the topic of discord to mind. Please let me know if this is something you all want to pursue! I can create a discord for our group. I want to encourage interaction and engagement with each other because ultimately that keeps an RP alive more than anything.
Also, I should mention that it may be important to read the sections labeled for other characters in my IC posts. Though it may not always be information your character knows specifically, it may help to piece things together so that you as a team can make more informed decisions. Feel free to ask any questions you might have in this regard.
I think that's everything, so I'll stop rambling. I look forward to hearing your thoughts/feedback and seeing what everyone comes up with!
