Ryuhza, you keep calling John "Johnathan". I think you're confusing my character from Pillow's. |D

Whoops. Well, you can understand why.

I'll make some edits then. tongue

Whoops, I didn't mean to write metaphysical. tongue Whatever, I'll go with it, characters make goofs too.

Oh, by the way KC, about how tall is Irilemi?

I'm having trouble posting as Krajn because Xavier keeps saying the things she was going to say.

This is kind of funny.

Oh, well, Oswald's about 5'11" and standing, and I know I didn't specify his height before, but I get a little confused when you write that Irilemi is looking down at him. That was a few posts back, but still, I like to clarify.
[up]Oh. Sorry, I hadn't realized he'd gotten up. Which, in retrospect, should've been fairly obvious. I can fix that.

Not sure what to add at this point. I might wait until Masterofchaos can get back with us, or until the other conversation in parlor shows a card I like, or until I think of something to write.

Since there seem to be a lot of people who like scanning for magic: Anyone who tries scanning Grimhilde for magic won't find any on her directly, but if they can scan artifacts then they'll definitely find it on the mirror she's carrying around (it's hanging from the belt around her waist).

Probably should have mentioned this before sending her down to the Wine Cellar, but eh. Better late than never. :P

The school musical premieres this weekend and I have four-hour practices every day this week, so... Yeah. I'll be busy until it's all over.

Er, I don't mean to do something that's wrong, so I'll ask first. Am I allowed to start a new Character Development thread? I just need to know, because not only do I have ideas for characters that I wish to develop, but I don't want to hijack an existing thread with my stuff this late in the game.

...Before I get an answer about that, has there been a Character Arena before, or no?
13911 CrystalGlacia25th Feb 2013 08:13:54 AM from Cedarpointland
If you mean starting another iteration of the Character Development Thread, you should definitely discuss it here first when more people are around. However, note that Mansion is still open for people to join as they please. It will always be open; bringing a character or two or three to Mansion 900 posts into the thread does not constitute 'hijacking'. Hell, I joined 400 posts in. That's not just because it's a 'plotless' thread- all threads are open to join at any point- except when the thread is starting to wind down -whether there's a plot or not.

Alternatively, if you mean Starting Your Own, we can't stop you. Nobody owns the concept of the Character Thread, but there's no guarantee that people will participate in it, since there's also the Shared Story Threads.

And, with regards to Character Arena, that exact suggestion has been mentioned by name. Technically, with regards to whether it's been done yet, the answer is no. But if you read that post and the ensuing discussion about it, assuming your Arena idea is like the previous suggestion, it should be evident as to why it may not work as a viable thread concept in a writing forum.

Well, turns out I was mistaken about when my HSPA stuff would start, so I'll be making a new post and bringing in a new character shortly, but I kind of need a review of where everyone is.
Note to self: Pick less edgy username next time.

Actually, I meant my own iteration of the Character Development Thread, not starting my own from out of nowhere. I just wanted to be sure that what I was doing was alright.

As for the Character Arena thing, well, I'm thinking there would be a plot involved to the whole thing... and I didn't want to force characters to fight each other by that point. I just want to have the major characters (written by the creators of said characters) fight relatively minor characters before it goes to the end of the first arc of the plot.

...Is my idea sound?

My completely off-CDT commentary is that fighting doesn't make for good character development.

Not really, though I'm admittedly coming from a biased position.

I realize that fighting doesn't make for good character development. However, I was thinking of doing three things with the CDT in question:

1) Give authors a chance to better improve their fight scene skills;

2) Attempt a massive all-encompassing story starting with the Tournament Arc that usually appears in DBZ or whatever;

3) Work on my skills as an author to make all this work for future stuff.

Well, does that make more sense?

[up][up][up]I'm kinda of the opposite mentality, as you often understand a character better when you see how they choose to fight.

Well, I hope that explains things for what I have in mind, because I don't really know how to explain things.

I personally can't see the idea working out.

Excessive fighting usually leads to people shoving their egos in each others' faces, which will make the thread go to hell pretty quickly. I'm of the opinion that there really shouldn't be a lot of fighting in a CDT unless there's a very good reason for it. More notably, I think a really plot-heavy thread would kinda detract from the intended purpose of the CDTs. If there is a plot, it should probably be an Excuse Plot at best.

To me, your idea sounds like something that would be better off on the other side of the forums, in the role-playing section.

That said, Mansion is indeed still open, and we're still discussing the details of the next non-casual CDT (or should be, anyway).

@Darkblood: If no one else beats me to it within the next fifteen minutes or so, I'll make an updated character location list.

Edit: Here you are.

(*) = Has either dropped out or is very inactive. Also, I didn't include anyone who wasn't listed on the Mansion page (or otherwise didn't remember), so I might have missed some people.

@Master: Tamara handed Nathan the DVD, so you should start the movie sometime soon... If not, no matter, I'll just have her start it.

Also, is Nathan replying to Anne's question to Tamara? The question about the soda and popcorn machines? Because that's fine, but I figured that Tamara was a couple of metres away from Nathan, so it's a bit odd...

I'll post within an hour or two. Probably. tongue

I'm still here, I just haven't found an opportunity to do something yet.

Also, I think we should decide the next thread with a vote.

You probably already noticed Gault but Friedrich is in the kitchen. Assuming you do proceed to the sparring room and hence through the kitchen you can have Agustin just not notice and I'll have Friedrich space or panic and turn invisible. I'm totally fine with that. I'm also fine with drama galore. Take your pick.

Thanks for telling me. I actually hadn't been paying that much attention to Friedrich, but having him panic upon seeing Agustin would be good. Also, heads up for later, I'm probably going to be bringing in another character that I think both Friedrich and Linza could do interesting things with.
