Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Alright, I have to give up. It's late and I do need to try and get some sleep. So I'm going to have to finish my summaries tomorrow. I only have like seven more to write....Or was it eight? I've lost track a bit. Sorry for the delays, didn't expect to be sick this weekend.

Lyn,

If FCD doesn't come back soon, what should we do with Ace becoming a Champion? That was supposed to take place the weekend we're heading into, and Fireclaw had some serious plans involving the Equinox festival along with Ty and Ehos.

This is part of why I decided to start the time skip on Friday evening as my understanding was that the Equinox festival was taking place on Saturday. So that buys us some time. I'm hoping that I can get some kind of reply from him soon. But yes, I have already started considering backup plans because that's my job. It's still too soon to be going that far though.

Isn't the bishop basically an NPC? Rules are different for NPCs.

That wasn't the intent, actually.

He's a build and design I've been meaning to play for a while, but could never find quite the right place or way to do it.

Hmm. Not sure I quite understand how that would work. Not sure I fully understand the intended concept then. But I've been a bit out of it, so I've probably missed stuff.

More likely, I haven't explained myself clearly.

The bishop, for what he's done, is a also brash, young (for an elf), irrisposible, and dives headfirst into basically (good god the typo that was), anything he's even mildly intereted in.

And he'd very much go a long ways out of his way to meet, and be around, actual dragons.

He'd mostly abandon the church if he found something that interested him more, only coming back on days where he's needed for sermons and the like.

Ah. Okay. Yeah, I just hadn't really understood the whole concept there. Works for me. And yes, as long as it's one suit of armor, you can do that.

I believe Lyn is doing a solid job portraying Vai, and while I do dearly hope FCD is able to come back and play her and his other PCs once again on at least a semi regular basis, I can honestly say Lyn is a very good substitute.

Thanks, MG. I'm doing my best. It looks like I will be running FCD's characters for the foreseeable future as I still haven't heard from him. This kinda sucks for me because he has a lot of characters, but I can only assume that some sort of crisis must have come up.

Now that we're at the skip point, it'll probably be okay to park most of his characters. With what's coming up, including Vai in that may be a good idea. I may be able to build something in for that anyway.

And I have one more fast interchange with Fei and Aananda. Apologies for it, but it will get several things that need to happen accomplished ;)

No worries, we can squeeze in a little bit more drama. :)

And yes, that's largely my plan, to put as many of his characters as possible on the sidelines so I don't do anything too awful to them in his absence. :)

Just finished compiling a list of all the things I have to write summaries about....o.O

I may have a whole other reason for not sleeping tonight.... That's a lot of writing.....

Today has been weird. I went to bed early last night. (Yes, I followed your excellent advice, Dalesman.) And then this morning I woke up and I could tell I was still sick. But I was also really hungry because I'd been sick to my stomach all day yesterday. So I got up and got dressed and made pancakes. Which were delicious, but predictably made my stomachache worse. And then went back to bed and didn't wake up again until four. I have a very bad feeling that I will not be able to get to sleep at all tonight. O.o

Writing emotionally heavy scenes for someone else's character is ....weird. I'm basically just spending the whole time hoping I'm not mucking it up too bad. :)

I'll just blame it on the fever if I make too much of a mess of it. :P

... Is it weird that I always imagine the place as one massive building that's basically totally flat, except when people are outside it?

A little bit since stairs have been mentioned in-game on multiple occasions. Yes, there are stairs. Most of the dorm rooms are upstairs. Classrooms are usually on the first two levels. The building is like four stories tall. Plus a couple of levels of basements. Mind you, it can be hard to keep track of it all what with things always rearranging. So it's possible that one day you could have a classroom turn up on the fourth floor and a dorm room turn up on the first floor. These things do happen.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Also, so freaking sick. :(
You do not want to know how long it takes me to compose a post right now through the insane nausea. :/
This is why I don't yet have any summaries done. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Yes, small garbage cans are almost as perfect as cardboard boxes.

I was reading about how people responding to cats in trouble use mesh washing bags to restrain them without causing stress, which was a new idea to me. I'm thinking about stopping by the closeouts store on Monday and buying a mesh pop-open/pop-up laundry bag for our remaining cat as a semi-private "duck people blind"/cat fort.

That's a great idea. We use a mesh pop up hamper to hold our empty cans for recycling, but we don't really drink soda anymore, so it takes forever to fill and in the meantime it makes a great kitty playground. Cans to roll around the floor and a spot to lurk while waiting for unsuspecting ankles to pounce on! Perfect! :)


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

No, they don't all have alternate names, but some do. Others, like Death, just go by their title. Also, the non title names can change at the whim of the patron, often based on the temperament of their current champion. Consistency is too much to expect of them. :P
And yes Jasper is the new champion of freedom. I just finished updating the champion list just now in fact.

And the Kidlet is off to a birthday party for his friend, which is a big deal when you've only got one friend and this is the only birthday party you'll go to all year. It's a nerf party so I spent the morning putting labels on nerf guns and clips so he doesn't lose his clips and things during the craziness of an extended nerf battle among assorted twelve year olds. I am so glad I don't have to supervise that insanity. :)

Vai was back at the Sunwake home. And then she teleported to the lab where the others (Aananda, Tamrin, Ephebe, Andromeda, James) were still waiting.
Ephebe and Tamrin walked away from the lab, through the school, to the house, and out to the gardens before they started talking. The entrance to the house is part of the school.

And I was planning to cover that in the summaries. Yes, Tyrrin can get them access to the scrolls they need.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Planning to pick up the action again on a Friday afternoon. I was going to skip straight to Saturday, but a lot of socializing happens after classes so there is that.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Letting the scene with Phaezeriel play out. My plan at this point is to throw out some summary posts of what happened over the course of the week this weekend, and then Monday will be the beginning of the new day. Because I don't want to go ahead and start that insanity over the weekend when I have less time to spend checking the boards. :)

Aaaaaaaaaugh!

Traffic today has been horrible because of graduation. Will be even worse tomorrow. And we have to head back downtown tonight for karate. >.<

I love Ann Arbor, but sometimes it's blasted inconvenient to live here...


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Lol. Yeah, that sounds about right. :D

Well, in the future there is the possibility of getting to play the little ones. If you don't mind playing a preschooler. :P

Other than that....umm....yeah, well, if you happen to be lucky enough to play Andromeda's love interest, that's about the only way I can think of that someone would end up as part of the family that isn't already. They've already adopted two very troubled young ladies. I think Ephebe and Vai bring them enough problems for quite some time. :)

Part of the reason that the storytelling is so rich for that group is how much accumulated history there is there. That and we have not pulled any punches as far as letting bad things happen to those characters. With breathing space in between. You can't have unrelenting dark. But that's the rule of a good narrative. You build characters people like and do awful, awful things to them so that they can grow and change in service of the story.

Cold and rainy day feels like I should be baking something. But I have a hair appointment this afternoon, so maybe this evening. Flourless chocolate cake sounds like a great idea. Probably because it's almost always a great idea. :)

I foolishly thought that the rain meant I would get a day free of construction equipment. Nope. Nope, not at all. They are out there using a concrete saw in the rain. >.<
I will appreciate the results once they're done repairing the sidewalks, but boy do I hate the process. Thank goodness for noise cancelling headphones.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Okay, so I haven't been able to get a hold of FCD for a week now, so I'm going to go ahead and move things forward without him. I'll be running his characters as NPCs until he's able to come back.

I have...a couple of house plants in need of a better arrangement to give them more space. They have outgrown their tabletop greenhouse. I have it sitting under a grow light, which is obviously working well. We only get indirect sunlight in our apartment and even on our balcony because of all the trees in the courtyard. So previous attempts at container gardens have failed miserably. Apparently plants need sunshine for some reason. :P

There are balcony bird baths you can get I think. If not, it should totally be a thing. Something that can clamp securely to a wooden railing.

Edit: it's totally a thing, cheap ones are around 30-40 bucks.

Thanks for the info. Can't use a railing mounted one because our railings are wrought iron and quite thin. But found some hanging bird baths that might work. :)

fixed that for you. :-)

We've introduced a bird bath to our backyard. It's been a huge hit! Especially since I rinse and refill it every day. Which is easier than it sounds, two minutes tops with the hose. :-)

Hmm. Not a bad idea. I wonder if I could fit one in the corner... although not as easy to rinse out on a second floor balcony. :)

Okay, not really. I mean, I do that sometimes because I can't sit still and it's better than nothing, but really I've been knitting. So much knitting.

Waiting on FCD again. Will move things along tomorrow one way or another. Sorry for the delays.

There is NO chance I would ever make something with weeping angels on it. Those things creep me out so bad. :S
Not sure what it says about me that I'm more creeped out by the creatures that send you into the past than the ones that kill you outright. :P

I'm just getting back into sewing after a few year break. But the new(ish) noise cancelling headphones are good enough at filtering noise that I can actually use my sewing machine again. I've been sewing since I was eight (insert joke about child labor here) so it was very frustrating to have to give it up in the first place.

It is too hot.

But we'll go for a walk later anyways. Because exercise.

And I live in a big brick box, so I have to turn on the AC as long as the outside temp is above fifty, on the grounds that sunshine + brick = oven. The inside temp can get into the eighties very, very quickly. Opening the windows can work if the outside temperature is cooler and there's a good breeze, but once it's warm outside, no good. Not cooling enough to offset the oven effect. I stopped using whether the AC needed to be on as a measure of how hot it actually is outside ages ago. :)

Sitting out on the balcony enjoying the lovely weather and the squirrels and birds are moving around the place like I'm not even here, or worse like I'm a Disney princess. ;P
We've started referring to the squirrels as our outside pets because that's what they act like. I really have to work at it to keep them from coming inside when I open the door. They want to play with the cats' toys soooooo bad. :)

So I've started the kidlet watching doctor who now. He loves it. And I'm enjoying rewatching. Nine is good inspiration for writing my traumatized time travelers. :)

Yep, the hologram in question is the SIM VI interface.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

DK, I will answer your PM later. Out of time for now. Just wanted you to know I wasn't ignoring it. :)


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Responding here instead of via PM, Dami, because it's faster to give the answer to all involved parties at once.
The school itself is sentient. It also counts as magical rather than mechanical. That said, Arthur's ability would work on some locks in the building on the grounds that they do not have direct attention so to speak. But keep in mind that it is a diplomacy check, so the more complex the lock the more difficult the check, and some DCs are impossibly high. The SIM rooms are run by a highly advanced VI(virtual intelligence, not autonomous or self aware like a true AI, but capable of many of the same functions), and that means the intelligence of the school rarely concentrates there. Which means that what Arthur is trying to influence is the VI in this case. As the VI is in my control, I'll be providing the answering post in the game thread. For reference the VI starts out at helpful, but that doesn't mean it will do as asked. It's perilously close to being an actual AI with all the complexity that would entail.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Alright, so now that I'm more awake and less cranky....

I don't actually mind if your character is being verbose or wants to discuss odd subjects. The morality of intellectual property laws bores me to tears and neither I nor any of my characters have much patience for it. (Except maybe Tami, but she's just being polite...she'd be yawning on the inside. :P) But if your characters want to have that conversation, then go for it. I just ask, and yes, it's more a guideline than an actual rule, that if your direct conversation is really long that you put it in a spoiler. That makes it easier to scroll past for the people not directly involved in your scene. And no, I didn't read that whole conversation. And I'm not going to. Confession time: I don't read every word of every post. If I'm not directly involved in an interaction, I just skim to make sure no one is breaking any rules. I try to read as much as possible, but there are some things I just can't. If it reads like a brief, I pretty much am just checking grammar. Too many years typing/editing for my dad growing up. XP
But just because it's not fun for me doesn't mean you can't have those discussions in game. It's not hurting anyone or breaking any rules. I'm not mad at anybody. I would just appreciate it if we could all make this one little change for the sake of thread readability. Thanks in advance. :)


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Currently totally exhausted. Apologies to those waiting on feedback from me. I'm too tired to give good answers. At this stage I'd just snap at everyone because I'm cranky tired. I will for sure have time to post tomorrow.
