You're right, I'm thinking of Dig Site.

But then what was University's problem? I know I just found it kind of boring, but I don't think that was what the problem was for most people.

Dropping out.



Too many people dropped out of University. grin

Jokes aside, the dropping out stranded other people in situations they weren't sure how to handle, leading to more dropping out, and eventually, the characters who were left clustered together because there was nothing happening anywhere else anymore.

I kind of want to join Mansion. What's going on, exactly?
Let's not go there. *flails noodle arms*

At the moment, it's mostly just a bunch of people having conversations. The most notable occurrence at the moment is the group of people in the Entry Hall attending to or otherwise drawn to an unconscious Oswald.

As for where everyone is at currently:

Characters whose presence is still in question:
  • Oracle, Tora, Leo, Anita, and Yuki. Leo, Oracle, and Tora are technically in the library, and Anita and Yuki are technically in the Entry Hall (specifically, on the stairs).

And I think that's it.

I'm afraid I won't be able to post until after school, or if I'm a very fast worker, at the end of my break. So that's, uh... seven and four hours respectively.

See you then.

I was going to wait until you posted anyways; plus I have to go to the store on my way home from school. So... yeah.

Also, KC, assuming I'm reading your most recent post correctly, Sora isn't really... 'young'-looking. Gracefully-aged and well-taken care of, but not young. Just so that others don't get the wrong idea going forward, because Ryu and Sora are identical twins.

And re time: I have tomorrow and President's Day weekend off school, so I'll have lots of time and stuff.

Tora and Oracle is kind of parked in the library. Tora is still reading books, and Oracle sleeping on the table.

Have been busy with a new job and the time difference doesn't help.

Oh geez, I didn't anticipate this large of a gathering. Well, I'm getting to posting now... won't be long. Also, Masterofchaos, you made a bit of a goof in spelling Oswald's name, but that's okay because it was a really funny goof. grin

What a cool dude.
If accessibility is a problem, and non-modern settings aren't good (Mansion's clockwork/nanite droids don't count?), then we should use a public place... Character Public Library? Stadium? Park, even?

I've said this before, but also, everyone idly milling about in a perpetual meet-and-greet is working fine for Mansion, but in future threads, I should think you'd want to give some motivation for characters to band together? Some kind of stress that would make them rely on one-another, and thus get to know each-other to establish trust - or generate tension, depending on the characters.

P.S: On the note of stress, Character Abandoned Mine-shaft?

How about Character Gym? Or maybe Character Mall?

Character Mall, library, and gym sound more like causal threads to be honest.

I think there was a character park before? I'm not sure; I wasn't here in the beginning. But I think there was a character park.

Pillow, unless you've got something planned currently I'm probably going to detach Nara from the Dining Room. Lemme know?

Library was part of University (a pretty important part, at that); Stadium, Park, Gym, and Mall all sound more like casual threads. Gym and Mine Shaft also both sound really restrictive in terms of setting. However, I imagine we could take Mine Shift and enlarge it into Character Cave - cave systems are enormous and can have a lot of variety within them, so that's not as restrictive as it sounds.

On another note - I spent some time thinking about the Island/Archipelago concept last night; trying to come up with a reason for characters to be on the Island to avoid the Ontological Mystery thing, and perhaps an overarching plot to give the characters something to work towards. After some time, I realized that a really in-depth plot wouldn't work so well, since it would detract from the point of the threads. I'm not saying we should excise any plot and make it up as we go along, but that the plot should probably be an Excuse Plot at best. Something that provides direction without overriding the things that we're trying to work on.

Edit: And I got ninja'd.

I'm off to bed, and I'll respond to any interactions with Donovan and Talbot on either the ride to/from school or when I get home. I also have a week long break off after tomorrow, so I'll be able to respond more.

Yeah she is. This whole entire thing has basically been on purpose. She hasn't really acted as she normally would this whole time. Just about everything she has said up to this point has either been a partial truth or lie minus a few things.

Wait, I think Picnic was in a park. But that thread no longer exists on the internet so it might be okay.

Ozzy's manhandling caused very cold blood to flow into the core of his body, the shock pushed him into cardiac arrest, and he died. He died. You killed him.

Just goofing, though doing a bit of research into hypothermia recovery did make me do a retrospective wince. It's not a good idea to move a hypothermia victim much at all. If necessary, you're supposed to be gentle, otherwise the above might happen. But it's not a big deal, I can give more than a few reasons to let it slide, not the least of which being that this is just a CDT. I'll also probably speed up Ozzy's recovery a bit, so that he doesn't have to spend several hours unconscious.

@Aqueos: Samira replied to Sven in the library.

[up][up][up]Yeah, I have to wonder. Irilemi should have basic first aid knowledge from the whole "guerrila warfare" thing she does, but she's from a tropical rainforest, so I doubt she'd have much hypothermia to deal with.
