Nah, you're fine =) I know my sleeping patterns are unusual, so I'm kind of used to having to explain the situation a little. No offense taken.

My normal up-time is 7. This week however it's 5 - 6 is when I have to be at the office >_<

What is unusual about your sleep patterns?!
Apparently being unable to fall asleep until midnight or later is considered strange by the majority of the population. Who'd'a thunk?
See, I think they're weird for going to bed so early. But then I'm another night owl and have learned to function on very little sleep when I am forced to get up before the hideous light of the day star crosses the horizon. And I see nothing natural about this whole diurnal business...especially when it starts about the time I want to be going to bed. :)
That was how I was before I had to be up for 8 AM jobs. Back when I either wasn't working or was working second-shift, I'd crash around 2-4 AM and sleep til 10 or 11. That seems to be my natural sleep cycle; pushing it back to midnight is about the earliest I seem to be able to manage.

Yep, that's my natural sleep schedule as well. But even when I have to get up at 7, I can't get to bed before 1 or 2. And earlier than that...well, I just plan on naps. Going to bed at midnight required too much medication. And melatonin does bad things to me. 1 mg of melatonin knocks me out like a light for a minimum eight hours. Not in a good way. In the if I happen to conk out in the hallway that's where I'll sleep and no one can wake me kind of way. Apparently I must not produce much of this stuff naturally...

I would like to apologize to anyone I got a bit snappish with yesterday. And for not updating the game thread at all. I've been a bit stressed out due to some real life stuff and my fuse was a bit short.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Sorry to see you go, Capt. Is this just a long hiatus? If yes, then we can just move your characters into the background until such time as you have time again. It's no problem. And good luck with whatever real life stuff you have going on. :)

I think there was a misunderstanding Lyn, some I think thought that WoMs may have been a PC and not an NPC as you say. So that some of the things he has done on the past look like PvP and not what is was, NPC v PC.

I myself am fine with WoM, I think he's a fun NPC and a nice off/on protagonist.

Umm Captain, I've had the exact same statistics as everyone else. I am a PC, and I have been since the beginning.

Instead of being an exploding kineticist, sonic cannon, Black Hole Dwarf, or curse slinging angel, I chose to point my powers completely into ignoring the Wards and hiding from security measures.

Now you're just confusing the issue. As of our last conversation regarding WoM he is at NPC status due to things. Probably should have been all along given his primary use as a plot device, but reasons. This is of course made more confusing by the game's blurry lines between PC and NPC. It's largely an arbitrary category. But based on WoM's motivations, power level, and relationships with both other characters and the plot, I would say he is squarely in NPC territory. Especially because of redacted. Really the point is just that it gives people an idea of what to expect from him. To avoid misunderstandings and arguments. Ooc ones at least. And you've gotten a fair amount more leeway than you would have as a PC because of my understanding of this character as NPC. That's about all I can say without spoiling plot points.

Lyn, you are saying he could have teleported with that level of precision into a room whose interior, layout, and occupants he could not see?
His whole schtick is that he's a super-spy. Security can see into that room and it wouldn't be the first time he's been watching the screens without permission. Especially with Aananda in the infirmary dealing with Vai's crisis and not likely to notice him.
Wearer is as close as makes no difference to omniscient and unstoppable. Got it. That is fun.

That is not anything like what I said. He is neither omniscient nor is he unstoppable. And I'm not understanding why you jumped to that conclusion after being presented with a logical and feasible method for a spy to gain that information about the room's layout and occupants. Without resorting to omniscience. And I already stated that he has very specific limitations or his welcome gets rescinded. And that would generally lead to unpleasant death for him. One of several different ways depending on who catches him first (the school, Jiminy, Ephebe, etc). Doesn't sound that unstoppable there either. He's meant to be an antagonist, but not an overt and obvious one. And whose side he ends up on in the end is not yet decided. The idea is to provide a challenge that doesn't have to get resolved by killing things. That doesn't seem like such a bad idea to me. I really don't understand the hostility here. Why is this okay from other NPCs but not this one? Especially since he was actually trying to do something good in this scene (saving Julie) so it doesn't even fall into PvP. Did I miss something when I read through that scene? I was reading pretty fast, but I thought I got all of it.

Oh, yeah, now I remembered the other one.

DK, I need you to change the name of Romulus's hometown. It can't be Lemuria because that's the name of one of the gem dragon planets (Haven, Annwn, Lemuria, and Nibiru for those that forgot) so it can't also be the name of a town. I don't need to be dealing with that confusion. :)


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

So much to catch up on from this weekend...

Alright, let's see...where to start....

Iolth, Capt. Wombat has some good advice for you there. Especially about assuming other people's reactions for them. It's a habit you want to break as soon as possible. It really annoys other players, and rightly so.

For future reference, and I have clarified this before, but it's been a while since DK was on hiatus for so long so it's understandable if it was forgotten, yes, WoM can move through the wards. He's an adversary type character rather than a student or teacher. He's currently allowed (mostly) the run of the place because Jiminy thinks that the guy could be a valuable war asset and has convinced Aananda to let him operate on campus providing he sticks to the rules (stay out of the hatchery, don't hurt any staff or students). Showing up to save someone doesn't violate those rules, so, yeah, he could do that. However, since the scene has moved on since then we'll just let it go this time. But in the future please be aware that this isn't just a player on a power trip. He's running a long-game story arc that I've approved. It remains to be seen what side WoM is actually playing on in the end.

Yes, the wards are smart. If someone gets hurt in the infirmary they don't get teleported anywhere since that just creates more trouble for the staff. There are alarms that alert the staff however, pretty much just how it happened here. The teleporting thing is what happens when someone gets seriously injured outside of the infirmary so that they can get treatment quickly.

Did I miss anything?

As I've told Iolth, a few times now, there really isn't much drama here. His problem can be solved in roughly thirty seconds once you bring in the right person. So no need for extreme measures. It's more about buying time.

Yuugasa, it's always good to know that you're not the only one to go through something. And sometimes it's nice to not have someone think I'm unnatural because I'm not close to my family. And glad you appreciated the snark. ^.^

Odraude, I love that quote. I definitely wish I had figured that out earlier in life. It would have saved me a lot of grief.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Anyways, sorry for the lack of posting yesterday. The not sleeping thing was kind of problematic. Today is better.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

That's a sweet thought, Ed. :)

Kidlet is going through a growth spurt/has teeth coming in/is experiencing the wild mood swings that herald the very beginnings of puberty and it's been an interesting week. His dad travels for work so I'm all on my own with him, as usual. And he's overall a good kid, don't get me wrong. It's just that summer vacation is hard because there's no real down time away from the kidlet. Which is okay except when he's being extra high-maintenance. (No, there is not a monster standing right behind you, yes, if you continue to whine I will restrict you to your room for your own safety, no, I cannot in fact move if you are clinging to me like a leech, yes, you do have to let go if you want to go to the pool later........yeah, this really is a sample conversation...from this morning.)

Has anyone else here grown up in a fundamentalist religious family? If so how do you deal with them? (assuming your beliefs are different and also assuming you haven't been kicked out or that you do actually deal with them at all)

At this point all I got is be polite and don't say anything that will start an argument unless it's actually important.

Yep. I'm not on the best of terms with most of them. I already spent too much of my life trying to be something I'm not and I'm done with that. (Because teaching someone to hate themself does not actually create a loophole in that whole love your neighbor as yourself thing. Really.) And they're not too willing to deal with that. Seriously, you'd have thought that I confessed to being a serial killer or something. Being bi isn't that bad. :/

And I know from how they've treated other family members in the past that they say all kinds of bad stuff about me behind my back. And I realized that not only did I not need the judgement that I didn't need the negativity. So I'm actually happier not being around them. Sometimes I have to be and on those occasions I try to be polite, but also keep my distance. There's no point in arguing with them. Unless they're being evil to my kid. I refuse to be non-confrontational about that.
That said, my sisters are actually cool about the whole thing. It's hard on the youngest because she gets caught in the middle cause she's the 'good' sister (still goes to church, doesn't drink, etc, etc), but she's actually never been anything but loving and accepting towards me. Even when they give her a hard time. So not all of my family sucks.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Today has been less than awesome. Insomnia really bad last night. Finally managed to get to sleep at 4. At 5 kidlet had nightmare. Yeah. Managed to nap a little bit this morning, but not running on much sleep. And kidlet has a fever and is crazy clingy. Sigh.

While we're on the topic of Kuros, I was wondering: How is it governed? Like, if one wanted to purchase a building, who would they see?

Well, pre-disaster, there was a mayor and a town council. If you wanted to purchase a building you dealt with the current owner. If you wanted to put up a new building you applied at the town hall.

At the moment, their city government is not in great shape. But once they get through all the awfulness, there will once again be a mayor and a town council. And any vacant buildings whose owners don't have any obvious heirs left will be put up for auction.

Dunno if ya'll remember the "Mesmer" convo we had several pages back, but I've started a thread here with my work up to this point, asking for advice.

Only one that I can think of that matches that description is Johnny Panic (I miss Spug, although I never met him), but you're not talking about him/her, are you?
i liked him, and I miss him, even if I sometimes had to puzzle out his posts, but other than myself and magic (tybalt) I believe that opinion is unique.

He did not leave on good terms. The terms he left on were of his own making. I do not believe he would have been happy in any game he wasn't running.

He could be quite charming when he wanted to be. The flip side of that was not particularly pretty.

Since those are the nicest things I have to say I will leave it there. In general I do prefer not to discuss drama past, so let's just let it be.

Hmm.

Is there any information on the other close (or relatively close) towns besides kuros?

Close in this case means reachable by train unless you can fly. Kuros is not entirely isolated, but not super near other towns. There was that one town that the original game started in which was a little bit but not too much to the south I think. If you go quite a ways south you get to a bunch of abandoned villages and the temple where Aananda grew up. But not what anyone would call near. There was some sort of university town whose name always escapes me. Also not super close. Basically the towns that are going to be within a day or so's travel from Kuros are going to be the sort of small, sleepy towns that Kuros used to be. Bigger cities are further away. And the rail system connects just about everything, so travel is not that difficult.

Umm....maybe?

I want to make a character who is amazing at building tech, repairing tech and builds robots for special tasks... I want him to start off either working in kuros or applying for work there.

his talents are borderline magi-tech

Okay, this might work. I kind of need to know more specifics to figure out how he best fits into the plans there. But there should certainly be room for that kind of thing right now with the loss of so much of their work force.

Happy Birthday, Lord Foul. :)


So Saturday's game went great. Our group ended up feeling surprisingly competent. And no one actually died. What more can you ask? ;P

Sunday on the other hand...well, apparently there was only so much good alloted for the weekend and it all got used up on Saturday. :/

You're retiring Sheess?

And Sorun?

And Professor De'Nown?

Okay, seriously sad now. At least can we write them out properly? It doesn't really work to just have them fade into the background like that. :/

I already knew you just weren't feeling it with Yrrin. This may require that he make a noble sacrifice later as an NPC, but I was prepared for that. And Dr Wuxn was only ever a minor NPC and due to be fired for incompetence. Easy enough to write him out. The rest are mostly aliases of the WoM so no problem. But those three (Shees, Sorun, and De'Nown) at least deserve the dignity of a proper exit. :(

I will keep Sorun, Jiaolung Sheessuroussen (those two profiles) and De'Nown I don't really have anything to do with him... so I just wanted him to fade into the background

I don't know what to do with Sorun, but I like Sheess... expecially with how Rhyleh reacts to him

Yay! Happier now. :)

Heh. And I don't think Ryleh knows what to do with how she reacts to Sheess. ;)
As for Sorun, I think it might be easier to figure out what to do with him if he starts interacting with the other kids more.

And I can support Professor De'Nown being mostly in the background. That's totally appropriate for a teacher. But I don't really want to mark him as inactive since he was supposed to be helping Marcell research that rune. And I have a problem student who is likely to have another incident in his class that won't be as fun without a teacher to interact with. If you really do want to write him out I'd rather do it in a way that makes story sense.

Get someone you trust to help you? I have to do that when shopping for certain articles of clothing that most people have no problems buying.
Trying things on will be difficult for me. I may buy a few then return the ones I don't want. I was told that sizing is different.

Sizing is a crapshoot, like most other women's clothing, but worse.

Just remember, dressing room mirrors flatter no one. Says the girl whose ideal swimsuit is a long sleeve swim shirt and board shorts...I am way too white to be showing half as much skin as most swimsuits show. Pale skin + sunshine = Owowowowowowwww. :P

In all seriousness, don't let swimsuit shopping get you too down. And I recommend Walmart. They have a surprisingly good selection.

FCD has been away. He just got back and is catching up on posts.

Hey, Kryzbyn, turns out the scene with Repp and Reviarti is waiting on Al. I think. Probably. Okay so we've all lost track of where it left off but it was maybe probably when Al got the info on the tracks (none but those belonging to people present).

Some years I manage it better than others. And last year I wasn't one of the people going on vacation because my husband had to work on the fourth so it was only on the first that I was otherwise occupied. :)

It's all good. We always have a major slowdown at the beginning of July every year because it's prime vacation time. And it's understandable that details get forgotten when things slow to a crawl like this.

Um... Did I ever get a answer from my prying eyes?

This post confused me. Yes, you found Ginni's body through the use of your prying eyes spell. And then Al and Repp started arguing and Reviarti was all can we have this argument inside the wards please? But they were examining the scene to see if there was any evidence and basically accusing each other of being the perpetrator. And that's where the scene is stuck until FCD gets back. His absence is part of the reason I was trying to keep posts from moving ahead too quickly since the scenes that got behind in the timeline were mostly with his characters, specifically Rena arriving at class and this scene with Repp. Well, that and I needed to work out some behind the scenes stuff before moving on as well. Which I'm nearly through with.
