Hey, mind if I jump in?

Sure.

Okay, I'll try not to make it a habit to double post, but, redcynic and Aralyn, you are role playing another player's character.

You haven't specified that it's Andre, draconiansuperior's character. But I can tell by the fact that the character, Andre, is using a sword and that he is a boy.

And earlier on, Aralyn, you had, perhaps without meaning to, roleplayed my character, Nicole. You had specified that one of the player characters had grabbed Elanor and told her "Are you going to come with me or not?" the voice said impatiently, "I'll let you burn in this hell-hole if you like." You should have waited for one of the characters to grab Elanor instead.

I'm not holding these things against you people, just don't roleplay a player character again.

Ah, woops. Sorry about that, this is my first RP. I'll try to keep descriptions to my own guy then.
BYOON~!
[up] You also said that the fire was an illusion, all the while talking about how the characters might suffer from heat stroke. That doesn't make any sense, and I feel like the 'fire being an illusion" is a bit of an Ass Pull.

But hey, you're starting out with the whole R Ping thing, so it's OK to make mistakes.

Sorry about that; I'm new to this type of thing :) I thought it was more of story-writing than a game, so I added a bit :) Won't happen again.

[up]Well, I just expanded the world beyond the burning building. I wasn't sure if that conflicted with a plan to stay in it so I added a possibility of choosing to stay. I (and my character) will probably defer to you and yours, DJ.

-edit: It sounded stupid, so I'll just accept my mistake and move on. —edit of an edit: Ok, if it makes sense, I'll go with it. I'll keep to the below declaration though.

I'll refrain from posting world-building/major shifts in scenery till after discussion page updates occur, or in reaction to other posts. I forgot, my character is supposed to be taciturn. I'm just gonna go with he thought he was in a combat situation (which he was, kinda) and say his survival instinct over-rided his inclination to be silent.

I'll probably not be here on Wednesday or Thursday (and probably not Friday either), family commitment :(

[up]Oh, well I hope everything's OK. DJ, does PC control default to you (as the DM-ish person) in those situations? or does she become an NPC?

—If the party does venture out (Sounds cheesy, eh?) should we elect a leader? cuz my vote's Nicole (DJ). My character doesn't really have a command mindset, so he's out.

-edited out this comment

Well, Elanor's definitely out if so, being blind :) Nicole would work pretty well, though any of the other characters could work as a leader as easily.

Of course, I'm of the opinion that the outside would be more suited to action than horror...but honestly, Elanor wouldn't mind either way, as long as someone can help her walk.

On the subject of Elanor, she is a bit twisted in the mind somewhat, but it hasn't culminated yet...if this RPG plays out apprpriately, I think she's apt to go insane :)

Oy, oy, I don't wanna have to shoot a blind girl... Let's see how it goes.

Also, We should probably list our time zones, so we can coordinate the best times to RP. I'm on Pacific standard time, so that's GMT minus 7 hours.

BYOON~!
I'm EST as well, funnily enough :)

I doubt you'll have to shoot her, since she's not really much of a threat at all, even if she wanted to be :)

Well, until DJ, KSPAM, and Andre (or at least DJ, we can carry KSPAM's man out and Andre's lad should be fine due to his sword), we're basically stuck on the precipice of adventure. (cheesy again, I know.)

BYOON~!
I'm back. Sorry to keep you waiting.

In character, no particular character would be the leader; the group does things as a group. And no one gets to play a PC character as a NPC. If players are away for extended periods of time, the other players would come to a silent agreement that the character was traveling with them that whole time.

So redcynic is in Pacific standard time, Aralyn is Australian, and I'm a New Zealander. That explains why the three of us seem to meet at the same time.

For now, we should wait for the others to get here and do some roleplaying. We don't want to leave them out.

Right, cool cool. In game, We're still waiting to hear Nicole's decision. (and Elanor's, given her...unique mentality. In case you were wondering, Damien's is to leave. he hates hyenas, ya know?

edit—I'm keeping myself occupied in between updates by playing Moemon and Touhoumon. HNNGG Venusaur so Moe I'm gonna die! HNNNG chibi Yuuka so moe!

[up]I think she's slightly paranoid...and still a bit panicky :) Glad to have an assertive character; will make for future conflict, and conflict is always good [lol]

EDIT: I think she'll often have random lapses of silence as well O.o

[up][up]Would it be worthwhile to ask the other two players to estimate how often they'll contribute? Then we'll be able to organise a schedule so there won't be like a page of Nicole, Damien and Elanor, and mysteriously nothing of Aleister and Andre for a while :P

[up]Well, KSPAM has an excuse to use with his character, since Aleister is down with a dislocated shoulder, so the argument could be he's resting up. Not too sure about Andre though.

So, I decided to show Damien's deredere side.

Lol, jk. Seriously though, I can see Elanor and Damien's interaction going two ways based on my latest contribution. The first is major suspicion and tension, the other is Big Brother Instinct.

Lol its going to be hard to sleep, cuz I'll be wondering how far the plot's moved w/o me.

Bleh. She's actually gone in a different direction than I had previously meant her too...she's more of a Creepy Child than an innocent slightly creepy kid anyway.

Currently, she trusts them all pretty much. She's tried to tell them what she suspects as best as she can, but her fears and suspicions are interefering with logic. Essentially, she's just a kid. And about Him..."He"'s just a figment of her imagination that grew till it formed part of her personality (no, she's not schizophrenic :P). He's bothed feared and revered by her, but in reality, she's just hearing things. In the Nightmare World...well, that's another story.

EDIT: Kid...she's maybe thirteen, max, probably more twelve elevenish. Old enough to basically understand adult concepts but young enough to still be considered 'youth' :)

See you guys Saturday probably. Hope she doesn't turn evil while I'm away XD

@redcynic, you could have messaged my about using Andre, but I hold no grudge, it kind of threw me off, but since I've been informed I kind post again (I wasn't going to post until I figured that out)

Sorry, it was mostly my fault for starting it. I had no idea we couldn't roleplay other characters :) So now, I personally apologise.

[up] it's fine, I was just thrown off, but thank you for apologizing.
