Changeling Rumpelstiltskin

New player?


Warden Kishan of the White Council | Hero points: 4; Luck 1/1; Bruises/Wounds/Conditions: 0/0/0

Huh, I didn't even notice. I assumed it was just a new tumbler alias for an NPC.

Hey Echos. Welcome aboard!


So Echos Myron and I have been hoodwinking you guys for a while. He had the idea for this character, and it fit in well with one of the plots the Fomor had going. So we decided to introduce him organically and let you guys react to him as though he were a character without the burden on knowing he was a PC. We thought that would avoid tipping you off to how you "should" behave toward him. I've enjoyed it and I think it worked well, but I feel like I'm making too many decisions for him, so I asked him to go ahead and step in.


Warden Kishan of the White Council | Hero points: 4; Luck 1/1; Bruises/Wounds/Conditions: 0/0/0

Well, I'll say you got me. I didn't suspect a thing. Very nicely done, seems about as organic an entry as you can get.

The only inkling I had was that you seemed to hint here and there that he'd be around for a while. I thought perhaps you were hinting I'd have to take him on as apprentice or something? I thought maybe that had been the idea with Set and I didn't bite, so maybe you were trying again... (We didn't know his powers yet; I see now that he's no wizard.)


Teenage Golem

Yes, surprise! I've been following (stalking) this game for a few months now. As a big fan of the Dresdenverse, I was upset when I completely missed the recruitment threads. I strong armed tumbler into letting me join and we thought it'd be best to make it as organic of an entrance as possible. I am extremely excited to see where this story goes.


It was a good show. Like the entrance.


Changeling Rumpelstiltskin

Great entrance!

And a cool intro idea.
Welcome aboard.

Need a place to stay?

I'm with Kishan, I totally thought it was a GMPC alias when I first saw it. Welcome aboard!


Changeling Rumpelstiltskin

Aw, now I want to go raid the sandwich shop, too.

Hey, Sundakan, can you post in gameplay under your Aaron alias? Totally didn't know who you were at first.


I post as Aaron when I'm posting as Aaron, OOC stuff is under my default alias.


He is just saying that you accidentally posted as Sundakan on that last post.


Are we still here?


Teenage Golem

I hope I didn't scare everyone away


Waiting n Tumbler myself.


Are we waiting for me? We currently have Kishan in the woods, Julian (the kid you are trying to save) on the roof of a strip mall, and Jarrod and Aaron by the side of the road. I was thinking there needed to be some getting back together and maybe getting the Julian cat out of the tree, although you guys might consider him saved at this point.

In any case, I'm ready to go on with John if that is what we are ready for.

Liberty's Edge

Male Human Boston Private Detective

Sorry I'm late, just a bad couple of days but I'm good now!


I'm attending a training conference for work for the next 2 days.
My attendance may be spotty or lacking.
I will return.

That is all.


I have returned, but I'm along for the ride for now.

Liberty's Edge

Male Human Boston Private Detective

I'm just waiting on the Warden and the kid to come down so we can track our wayward teammate.


Yep.


Changeling Rumpelstiltskin

Not so much wayward as supervisorly challenged.

Liberty's Edge

Anybody heard from Kishan?


Warden Kishan of the White Council | Hero points: 4; Luck 1/1; Bruises/Wounds/Conditions: 0/0/0

I'm here, and keeping up with the reading, but I've had little time for my games this week. My wife is out of the country, and I've been busy looking after our little kids most of the time since. Sorry about that.


Dittoing my thoughts from the other thread, this game s moving a mite slower than it needs to. It feels as though you're waiting for some universal consensus of what to do. I suggest giving 24, maybe 48 hours tops to post an action, and then going with whatever the only stated one or current majority is after that.


That seems reasonable. I guess I am too hung up on table IRL table etiquette and not wanting to leave people out. Still adjusting to the whole pbp thing.


Changeling Rumpelstiltskin

I'm OK with a quicker turn-over, but slower isn't a problem, as long as it's not always going to be slower.
If you're moving too fast, I'll say something and we can work it out.


R. S. Belcher's new book 'The Brotherhood of the Wheel' is excellent and fits our genre.
That is all.

(Also, now I will have to find his last book, 'Nightwise', because I somehow missed knowing of it completely.)

Letting all my fellow players know, I have an interview tomorrow for a second job, and if I get it, my posting times will be cut into.


Sorry for the delayed response. Work problems kept me away for a few days. Should be resolved now.

On a different note, I just watched Dracula Untold for the first time, and was terribly disappointed at the waste of talent and potential.


I hate apologies, and I always tell my students, "Don't be sorry, be better." That said, sorry for the terrible post rate and responsiveness. To misquote Goldblum, "Life, uh, gets in the way." I will be better.

Also posting this on my other games.

Went through John/neil's posting history. I think his last post under any alias was the one on our board April 27. tumbler, are you going to ghost him (make him an npc) for a while, or should we write him out?


I'll bot him for a while. Hate to lose the character at this point.

Liberty's Edge

Male Human Boston Private Detective

Especially since it's technically his place we've been using.


Warden Kishan of the White Council | Hero points: 4; Luck 1/1; Bruises/Wounds/Conditions: 0/0/0

Ya, but he could always be NPC'd into our home base support, a la Alfred or Oracle. Tht way we could still use the place, he just wouldn't escort us on missions.

Liberty's Edge

Male Human Boston Private Detective

True.

I kinda want to meet back up with those pygmie things that popped my tires while we're in the NeverNever. You know, just to check up on them and stuff, maybe turn them into my private army.

Liberty's Edge

So, been thinking about my character, and I've decided on some things. First, I'm getting into it after looking into things. Secondly, been thinking about the luck thing that I've been fiddling with, and I've come up with a good reason for it that will develop over the game. Some time in the past, his ancestors did something that gained a blessing of luck from a leprechaun. As we gain more power points, I'm gonna save up for the Luck Manipulation power, as the blessing gains more power the more he's involved with the supernatural.

Any opinions?


Sounds good to me. Luck is pretty strong in M&M.


Sounds great! Quite the luck of the Irish.

I'll be out of town for the next week with only occasional access to wifi. Feel free to bot me as needed.


I see that we are stuck. I see the two options as get into the tower or descend to the the ice below.

Or turn around and back through the door, I suppose.


I think it might aid matters if you're a little more up front every time we take an action. I was still waiting for the birds to react from me shooing them, since for all we know they're hostile Fae birds. That's what I OOC assumed.


That makes sense. I will admit that I am still pretty terrible at this PbP thing. I can't quite grasp it.

Bit of hilarity: Kishan, on your last post, I just pictured Captain America in the first Avengers movie going "I got that reference!"

Word as to my wearabouts: I've moved city. From Alberta to British Columbia (from western Canada to even more western Canada). The weekend was all packin boxes, loading the truck, driving, unloading the truck, and so on. Right now I am up to my eyeballs in boxes. I've finally got Wifi hooked up, but time is still at a premium due to all the work.

I'll try to get some time to dedicate to the game, but I hope you can be patient with me. I'll be copying this message over to my other games as well.

Any chance of getting this game going again? I was probably my favorite of all our M&M games. I love the Urban Fantasy setting.

Players, sound off if you'really still around and you be up for this!

Liberty's Edge

Male Human Boston Private Detective

I wouldn't mind coming back to this game, or starting another similar game with the same characters. It was really fun and I had some good ideas in mind for the future of Jarrod.


Same. I think we we just had a bit of miscommunication here that gridlocked things.


I'd be willing to fire things back up. We could probably roll in Dr. Buzzard from the other Monsters and Men game.

As for rolling on, there is some interesting stuff to play with here in the NeverNever, but the real story is back in the mundane world.

I'm pretty excited about where this story goes.

Count me in!
