Post all game related discussions between players and GM here.

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 21 2005, 01:57 AM
Alright, it's off. I can post today, and be online most of the afternoon, you're time.

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 21 2005, 05:40 AM
...And they're OFF!

Let the games begin!!! ninja.gif

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 21 2005, 05:43 AM
Quick question. I didn't start out with a comlink. Do you want me to go and buy one to add to my inventory or will I have received this from the NR? Either way, I'll just roll on like I already had it.

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 21 2005, 05:56 AM
Tekku dose'nt even have a comlink.

We get equipment to our mission, right? Or?

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 21 2005, 06:14 AM
Well, I suppose we could change that to, "A messenger droid hovers up to each individually and delivers the following message..."

That would account for it. I think I'll just run it like that, unless the lightning comes down from the GM in response... blink.gif

Then I'll just use the comlink I found on the ground on the Grand Plaza in front of the Imperial Palace... blink.gif blink.gif

Hey, you're good. I'm on Eastern Standard Time, so I'm 3 hours ahead of you, but six hours behind Skaff! So we're not going to have much in the way of time online all together... But we'll get it done!

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 21 2005, 11:15 AM
What do we do with die rolls? Are we done with that or did we just miss something?

I have a request in to Jamfke to see if we can import the Die Roller to this site. I figure it'd make everything a WHOLE lot simpler. That way, we can either all make our own rolls right here or NK can make them for us. (At least until he knows us and trusts us not to cheat...)

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 21 2005, 11:20 AM
If we do make our own rolls, i hope nobody will cheat.

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 21 2005, 11:51 AM
Well, I certainly won't! How do you guys do it at the Pit? Do you roll 'em or does Jamfke?

I would'nt cheat either.

And over at the Pit Jamfke does all rolls.

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 21 2005, 12:14 PM
That's why I'm hoping he can import the Die Roller. It'd make things a lot easier- especially if NK decides to do all rolls.

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 21 2005, 12:16 PM
Yup.

Well, it seems Tekku has already gotten on the nerve of one character.

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 21 2005, 12:18 PM
Possibly... but she hasn't reacted to you yet. Of course, given her nature in the character threads, you'd better watch out! You might have just signed your name to the top of her prank hit list! blink.gif

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 21 2005, 12:22 PM
I meant, you're character.

Dos 'But will avoid setting to close to Tekku.' ring a bell?

Posted by: NEW KID Sep 21 2005, 01:19 PM
I thought i make all the rolls??

srry guys, just got back from school

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 21 2005, 01:22 PM
Right! You just make all the rolls you want!

Posted by: NEW KID Sep 21 2005, 01:27 PM
YAY!!!

anyways, no rolls are needed so far, its a briefing for crying out loud tongue.gif
just waiting for the other guy before the mission briefing starts

Posted by: NEW KID Sep 21 2005, 01:49 PM
In school all day.................
its done, theres nothing

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 21 2005, 01:52 PM
Okay. ANd by the way, Keeli showed up. Just go to page 1 in the IC Thread

Posted by: NEW KID Sep 21 2005, 01:53 PM
okay, got it

Posted by: NEW KID Sep 21 2005, 01:55 PM
do you want to start, or finish your conversations??

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 21 2005, 01:56 PM
I dont think there is musch conversation between any of them.

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 21 2005, 02:00 PM
Ok... I'm back for the moment...

You didn't offend my character. He chose his seat based on his habit of keeping his back to the wall and the door in front of him. He's sitting away from you also out of habit so that, were something to happen, you wouldn't be clustered together. That's all.

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 21 2005, 02:02 PM
Okay. rolleyes.gif

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 21 2005, 02:03 PM
Admittedly, some of that's from my army days, but it carries over nicely into my character's background- always in fear of being discovered, etc...

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 21 2005, 02:14 PM
Hurray! All four on! Hurray! Let's get posting!

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 21 2005, 02:21 PM
WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!! laugh.gif

We'll never get to the breifing.

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 21 2005, 02:29 PM
Yeah, well, remember that this one's supposed to be more PBP than straight online RPing... we may NEVER get a time where all four of us are on at once... sad.gif We may have to just post and wait. Which sucks, but is doable. Just drags everything out.

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 21 2005, 02:31 PM
I know, i know. I just wi´sh nay of you post a little bit more.

I know that you may be working, but....

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 21 2005, 02:33 PM
Believe me, I understand. I wish I could be posting more as well. But I AM posting, at least...

Alright, seems like you guys are a little edgy, but I'm really trying to work as fast as i can, and the thing with PHP is, that when you post, you hav to wait until the GM get on when he rolls.....how could he roll if he can't even see it,

trust me, i'm still there while im doing homework, but i hav sports and stuff too...

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 21 2005, 03:14 PM
Don't mind us... we're just grumpin' a little. For me, at least, it's just the excitement of getting back into a new game after all this time. I'm excited about it.

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 21 2005, 03:17 PM
Well, see ya! Goodnight.

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 21 2005, 03:27 PM
G'night, dude! I'll be on tomorrow, but for less time.

Posted by: theophilus Sep 21 2005, 05:06 PM
I didn't see any posts stating a required number of posts or the requirement to stay online for blocks of time to have conversations. If there was one I missed it. My experience with PBP has been that people post when they can and are not expected to sit at their computers for a few hours at a time. If that's what you're looking for I can drop out to allow you to do so unhindered. Just let me know. Not a problem. However, If this is going to be an expectation for every game you're involved in, you may want to state it up front, as a courtesy to other players.

I apologize in advance if this post comes across as anything other than a sincere expression, without malice or anger of any kind.

Posted by: NEW KID Sep 21 2005, 05:21 PM
I can't sit down like that either,
the only expectation i hav is simple, one post per day IC

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 21 2005, 11:44 PM
I understand that you cant be online for hours and hours, but it will get problematic if you, NEW KID, as the GM is only online 5 minutes a day. But if that's all the time you got, then we'll have to do with that.

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 22 2005, 05:53 AM
Theophilus, you are absolutely correct. A TRUE PBP is exactly that; the players state their actions in a post and must wait until their post is reacted to. While it would be wonderful for those who happen to be able to be on the computer for long periods to have a whole group like that, it just isn't totally feasible. I personally joined this PBP BECAUSE I didn't have to worry about being online with everyone else. So while I may display a few angry.gif angry.gif angry.gif s, don't anyone take it personally. I'm just very excited about getting this game off and running, so I'm just venting a little steam. And it's not even hot steam, either. biggrin.gif It's lukewarm at best. So post when you can, and we'll get this game moving.

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 22 2005, 05:59 AM
Well, i feel the same way a Jedi Skyler. IM just a little edgy, on getting this started.

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 22 2005, 06:51 AM

Draws and ignites lightsaber, deflecting shots in a pattern in the wall behind Skaff that vaguely resembles the outline of a certain Verpine...

Uh! Uh! *Tries to set his Tabacc so that the bolt of laser just lights it. Begins swinging hi head around and actually aim for it.* Aw! Miss! Oh, there's on more coming! Almost got it! *Bolts flies just over the Stick.* How?! I have perfect aim! *After that comment a bolt burns the Tabacc in two pieces.* .........

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 22 2005, 08:47 AM
I think we're going to have to work hard to perfect this little trick. It'll be a hoot at all the NRI parties down the line... laugh.gif

I going to create a whole filled with Tabacc Sticks, with different flavor.

(Begins mumbling to himself.) Strawberry, Sugar, Carrots.. No, wait no carrots.

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 22 2005, 10:55 AM
So, I guess we're just waiting on more information from New Kid then, eh?

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 22 2005, 11:00 AM
I guess so, or maybe some interaction from Keeli.

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 22 2005, 11:51 AM
Theophilus was online for perhaps 1/2 hour maybe ten minutes after you hopped off for an hour. I just had to say, "D'OH!" ohmy.gif

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 23 2005, 04:48 AM
Maybe I should use my TK and form the smoke over Tekku's head into an extra pair of antennae... laugh.gif

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 23 2005, 02:47 PM
Now we just need NEW KID to get this mission started!

Posted by: theophilus Sep 23 2005, 03:15 PM
Keeli's just waiting to hear more from the breifing officers, waiting for a response to her question. Banter will come when it is time for it.

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 23 2005, 03:19 PM
As i said/wrote, all we need is NEW KID to get things started.

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 23 2005, 03:44 PM
C'mon guys! Now you're actually online, post something! NEW KID, you're the GM, c'mon! Tekku asked about something!

Posted by: jamfke Sep 23 2005, 04:11 PM
Chill a little Skaff! He'll post when he's ready. This game isn't going to go like over at the Pit. NEW KID's got other things going on, so he'll post when he gets the chance.

Posted by: Teradoxx Sep 23 2005, 04:13 PM
Well! It's just.... Oh, you probably right, Jam. Sorry if i offended anybody, by rushing this so much. Im sorry.

I think im just a little too impatient.

It's cool, just keep it calm. It helps to play this a little slower anyway so you can think about what your character is going to say in response to others. If you say something and decide that he wouldn't have put it that way, then you have to go back and edit...

If you pause for a bit and decide what you're going to say, then it makes for a much better story over all.

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 24 2005, 06:30 AM
Jam's right... This format is a little unique in that you actually have the time to think before you say, "I'm going to sidle right up to that rancor over there and beat it over the head with this here hydrospanner! His breath STINKS!"

Yup! Jamfke is right about the editing. Over at the Pit when we get into "speed posting mode" there is a lot of editing because someone posted something that you were unable to see because you were posting. I know I am notorious about that. Sometimes I have to edit 2 or three times due to spelling or stating something that was already stated. smile.gif

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Sep 26 2005, 01:21 PM
Preach it, Net! Sometimes I can get to posting so fast I'm three or four ahead of everyone else...

bad news, im gone from tomorrow to saturday
i'll try to get the stuff done so we jump right into action when i come back

Okay. What's happened to NEW KID?
He has'nt been online for quite som time now.

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Oct 24 2005, 09:30 AM
Well, he was going to join our game on your site, but couldn't because he has lots of schoolwork bogging him down. I don't know if that will mean that he's gonna have to bail on our game here or not. If so, I suppose YOU could always take over... hehehe! Jamfke is still recuperating, as far as I know, so I don't think he's up to it yet- especially since he still hasn't made any more posts on HIS game here. He's been off of our game at the Pit as well, but I haven't had the time to see if he's been able to continue overseeing the Rebel Uprisings game or not. Hopefully both these guys will be back soon so we can start rolling again.

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Oct 24 2005, 09:32 AM
Plus, the last time I saw him on here, he was on for a few minutes then back off again. He hadn't posted, so I don't know what's going on.

Posted by: NEW KID Oct 24 2005, 02:17 PM
Meh, right now i can't get a long enough internet time to post anything for the adventure so bare with me, it'll change in a few days

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Oct 25 2005, 10:09 AM
WOO HOO! Can't wait, chief!

Posted by: NEW KID Feb 13 2006, 04:27 PM
Would you guys like to continue this?

Posted by: jamfke Feb 13 2006, 04:35 PM
If they do, PM me and I'll move it back into the light again!

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Mar 24 2006, 10:58 AM
I wouldn't mind picking it back up again. I'll have to change Cal's name, though, since I've modified the character and used him on another board. I'll just change a little of his history, his name, and continue on from where we left off. I'll even keep his first name Cal, or at least some extension of it. PM me if we bring it back online.

Posted by: jamfke Mar 24 2006, 03:10 PM
Yeah, if you can get the others to pull for it, I'll put it back into the land of the living threads! Hey, that sounds like a movie title!

Posted by: Jedi Skyler Mar 24 2006, 03:49 PM
The only person I haven't seen around really anymore is Theophilus, and he had a good character going. She was going to provide a lot of good roleplaying...
