Game Status and rules

Okay. So I haven't heard back from player #9 for several days, and he's also not responding in another game, so I'm going to go ahead and say that he loses out for now. If he shows up, we'll see where we are.

And, cause I'm just that stupid, I'm gonna run it with 8. Krypton pointed out that superteams are routinely composed of 8 or more people.

So, the caveats to this:

1. Y'all should feel free (as in encouraged) to split the group from time to time. Or a lot.

2. I will be aggressively NPC'ing people. Specifically in combat/panel scenes. If we're in a combat scene, and you've taken more than a couple days, you're getting NPC'ed. To that end, if you have a combat strategy, you might want to add it to your character sheet in a separate post. If you have a default allocation (something like "Always use stones equal to his regen+1, with 2 in defense, and the rest in an attack power" or the like), post that too, and I'll follow it to the best of my ability.

If you get NPC'ed consistently, you may well be dropped (or just written out of the plot for a time).

3. I expect y'all to talk amongst yourselves. I will be involved, but with 8 players, there should be some interactions.


I have all 8 characters. I'm going to review them over the weekend, and you should expect the starting post for the game Monday night. If you have issues, we'll work them out, but the game will probably launch.

I work with a general rule that your characters are malleable until after the first issue. If you get to the end of the first issue, and you don't like your PC, you can adjust. If you hate them, you can toss them out entirely, and replace them. We'll retcon it such that it works.

I would like it if each person would pick a text color for their speech. I find it easier to follow that way. If you can't post in color, no big deal (I post from my phone a lot, so I get it), but if you can, use the same color you usually use. I will try to do the same for each of you.

And as a reminder, the meta rules:

Originally Posted by Me My general rules are pretty simple - be able to post at least every couple days. Be willing to stick it out for a reasonable amount of time. Be willing to work with the other players.

I'd like posts to be in the 150-300 word range in general, barring quick back and forth banter. I'd like people to use capital letters, punctuation and appropriate spelling to the best of their ability. Misspellings or non-native speakers aren't a big deal. People who can't be arsed to go back and correct 15 typos, or capitalize words are asked not to apply (we're all here to read the stories - I'd like the stories to be easy to read).

The general tone of the game will be slightly less 4 color, but still fairly bright. Vigilanties are acceptable, but stone cold killers masquerading as heroes (think The Punisher) will be asked to tone down their homicide a bit.

Just a reminder that I am French.

I also like to have this color for my speech. That is all.

In order for the character named 'Blue Blazes' to actually have the opportunity to post in blue, I'll post in pink, the color of psychic power in the Marvel Universe.

I shall be
hmm maybe that's not such a good idea how about A slightly darker blue than krypton but brighter than Darius. Or I could stick with yellow so I don't confuse any one so yellow it is

So, um.... where did you want us to put the information that's 'public' about our characters? From the text line in the first post of 'Important NPCs' I got the impression you wanted it there, but then I see a whole slew of new threads up in 'The Heroes', so I became less sure.

He said in the Secret Identities thread that we should make second threads which are public. You can probably just ask him to move it for you, no reason to rewrite everything.

Yeah!

I may migrate information to the important NPCs. But you don't know if they're bit players, or kings of the scene.

Ah....

Your confusion is in my horribly written sentence.

The Important NPCs thread will be updated with information about the NPCs if every PC knows it. If Moira sees Jack the Snipper eat a puppy, but doesn't tell anyone, it will be in her thread. If she tells everyone, I'll update Jack the Snipper's info on the INPC thread.

More like Auqa, but that is what I was thinking.

*sigh*

So, my internet was bad on Saturday, and out yesterday.

Now, today, my water heater is trying to die. I may or may not be able to post up tonight. Assuming nothing eats my computer while I'm not looking. I'm gonna try, at least....

Hey darius would you mind using a different color I'm finding it really hard to read your dialogue. Sorry I just keep getting migraines from trying to read your posts

If we're going to be suggesting that - Vort, yours is also a bit dark. On a darkish brownish backround, lighter colours are easier to read. Dark Orchid is better than purple, but also a bit hard to read, while Plum is probably too light for your character.

Darius, I'm not sure if this is different enough from Thanos, but maybe Royal Blue?

No one has red, right? I'll switch to that.

So. I'm back on the forums, and working on a Firefly game.

However, once that gets underway, I would be willing to restart this game, if people are still around the forums, and interested in picking back up. I know Vortigern is, anyone else?

Well that is three? Is that enough? If not, a recruiting post to fill vacancies I'm sure would get at least one or two more?

Indeed.

Once the Firefly game gets a bit of momentuum<TM>, or dies off quickly, I'll put up a recruiting post.
