Did I catch correctly that this was going to be an AIM-type game? Lots of power gaming?

Even if not, I'm afraid that I'm currently too busy to join. If this is only going to be a play by post game, then I might be able to join in at a later date.

It's going to be a PBP game. I'll be starting a general information thread that I hope will shed more light on what's going on. If we have fewer than five people in the beginning, we can always take more people on between jobs...so coming in later on won't be a problem. smile.gif

Well, let me fish for a little more information.

You mentioned a posting minimum of 1 to 3 times a week. With these guys here, you're likely to be REAL busy, much more busy than what you'd be for the minimums.

I'll go out on a limb and assume you've at least read through our other SW game currently running. (If not, I'd recommend you do that, if for no other reason than to get a feel for how we write and react to things.) If we're only able to post the minimums, are you going to go ahead and post for some characters to keep the action rolling?

The more I read about this, the more I think I might be able to squeeze a character in. Busy as I am, I usually am able to put a post in ALL my currently running games at least once a day. One to three times a week shouldn't be too hard to maintain.

I'll keep checking back here for more details. By the way, when you say the characters will be provided with a ship, I take that to mean we're all part of a group that collectively will own one ship. Is that correct, or will each of us be individual bounty hunters/mercs who each own their own ship?


Man, I just can't resist a good SWD6 gam. Count me in. rolleyes.gif

Sorry for the delay in responding but I was out of town at last moment's notice.

Two things should determine the gameís pacing: posting by the players, but primarily me moving things forward. Iím going to say right now that I am going to be limited to posting one to three times a week due to the fact that this will be my fifth game that I will be running.

Itís my job to move things forward, and I will be checking the game daily, but if anyone is expecting me to move the game forward daily, that isnít likely to happen. Iíll be moving the game forward when I see that game need to move forward (typically at least once a week, but likely every other day). I donít foresee people getting ahead of me because, well, you guys all have to wait for me. smile.gif It shouldnít be too long of a wait though. The only times where I will be keeping the pace relatively fast are combat rounds (and the minimums should keep everything fair). When I ask for everyone to declare their actions, I will need them within 48 hours. No declaration of actions in 48 hours after a combat round has been declared (and or further rounds) will mean that whoever didnít declare, doesnít get to act (this means moving or returning fire, I may dodge for the character if I feel they can see where the fire is coming from just to be fair).

So, to sum up and make things clear for all of us (me especially)ÖOne to three posts a week. Itís what I ask for, and all Iím likely to dish out myself. Iíll be checking the game several times a day, and will be available to answer OOC or PM questions, but will move the game forward when I see fit (I don't like interrupting PCs when they're talking to each other). The only thing Iím strict about is combat. A round will only last 48 hours in real time before the results are posted and the next round commencesÖif a player doesnít declare, he or she doesnít go. The ď48 hour long combatĒ round pretty much forces three posts a week if a fight drags on, so that shouldnít be too bad. If everyone is quick on the draw, Iíll be able to move things along quicker (24 hours at the quickest)Öbut Iím all about waiting up to two days for dramatic responses from people who may be preoccupied with other games or RL. I know I can be sometimes. J

To address the other issue...posting for people who may be absentÖI really frown upon doing that for two reasons. One, I overstep my bounds by playing a player character, and secondly, I have enough stuff to do already than to play someone elseís character. If someone canít fire off a response in weekís time, Iíll do my best to be fair and act in character for the absent player (Iíd also like to know why theyíre absentÖIs it RL, or does my GMing stink?). If someone is going on vacation, then I will run their character briefly in their absence if they ask me to. If this is made a habit, Iíll be in touch with that person and inform them that things just arenít going to work out unless he or she becomes a regular part of the game by meeting the posting requirements. If that doesnít work, Iíll figure out a way to make them exit.

Iíll elaborate on the ship now, since I probably could have done better explaining things earlier...but didn't. blink.gif

There is no ownership on that vessel by any of the players (yet). You all work for the Bounty Hunterís Guild. That is the Bounty Hunterís Guildís ship. If any of you can fly it, that will be excellent. If none of you can fly it, a pilot (employee of the guild) will fly it for you and accompany you to the worlds you'll be traveling to. Itís a loaned tool at your disposal. Iíve had problems in the past with everyone either wanting their own ship and flying off to create three to five separate solo games for me to run (which Iíll never do again), or people getting all hacked off because one person would have a ship (role as the ship captain) but the ship captain was such a jerk, no one would listen or want to fly with the guy. (Causing mutinies between player charactersÖwhich I tend to settle with brutal consequences for everyone involved) You guys will have missions to accomplish, and the ship or issues concerning ownership of the ship shouldnít be a major concern as it will likely only be a means of getting you all from place to place. Most if not all of the action will take place off ship. If anyone wants a ship or partial ownership in a ship, do so by earning cash from collected bounties in character and buy your own ship. Above, I mentioned Ďyetí. This means that if you all work out as a crew and team, you might want to purchase the ship from the Bounty Hunterís Guild or buy a new oneÖSo, everything is negotiable in time, but to keep everyone from possibly killing each other in Chapter One, and to keep everyone on track for the missions, the ship is your employerís ship for now.

I'll be putting up the Character Creation review in the next day or two...once I get my bearings back from a work pile up. yeah.gif

That's alright. It's just a demonstration of what I was looking for.

Your minimums will be perfect for me. Other than a week in July, for the time being there's no reason I can see that will keep me from posting at least that much. I'll get with you on when that will be.

Thanks for the response. The more I think about this game, the more I think I want to be in it. I'm looking forward to starting up. I'll get a character worked up as soon as I can, which won't be RIGHT away, due to my heavy load. I'll PM it to you for revisions and suggestions as soon as it's ready.

Here are the things that are happening right now in my world (sigh).

1) My younger sister is getting married...so I will be out of town from June 30th - July 3rd with no access to the computer.

2) I'm taking two independent learning college courses as pre-reqs for my RN/BSN and was under the impression that it was a turn in things as I go with no deadlines execept the end of the semester (I've been turning stuff in, but not as fast as they want)...but now, fine print has been sent to us almost halfway through the semester that we need to turn stuff in every week, and that the professors are only accepting a paper a week. I'm not too far behind, but my GM fun time will be limited through early July.

3) As some of you know, I have two young children. I am currently living with my wife in a two bedroom condo. We will be moving sometime this summer, and that leaves me to go down to where we're moving to secure a job. Not too worried about that...CNA work isn't too bad and I'm marketable.

So, if you're wondering where I'm at...I'm either crying and reading at a wedding, getting myself educated, interviewing, or giving myself a hernia lifting heavy stuff (you all may have already noticed that I'm starting to feel the heat) . I will be checking the game every day to every other day, and will post provided I have a means to do so. I can still be reached by PM, but posting on here with slow dial up may be difficult.

We'll still be starting on time (Thursday), but I just wanted to give you all a heads up on why I may be out of commission for a few days at a time (I really to not be). Again, this will only be through mid-July.
