We Are Our Action Avatars (Discussion):

 1 Mr Kirb, Thu, 7th Jul '11 2:37:55 PM from a can full of whoopass Get RP Mod Relationship Status: Buried in snow, waiting for spring
Let go, Begin Again
Since We Are Our Epic Avatars has gone down the drain due to sudden stagnation, I'm planning to make sure the new RP won't suffer from a similar fate. The RP is a mix of We Are Our Avatars and We Are Our Epic Avatars, character interaction and plot.

Rules:
  • Before you read the rules below, read this.
  • 1. If your going to have a plot, you have to outline it to us before you apply it to the RP proper no matter how big or small it is.
  • 2. The RP can hold up to a limited number of simultaneous plots.
  • 3. Don't godmode. If you have questions, ask, and we'll determine what is fair.
  • 4. Note that even though WAOAA and WAOA both share the same universe, any cross-plots are to be carefully planned in both discussion threads, with permission of the affected characters' players.
  • 5. After one or two plots are finished, let our characters cool down for the moment. Having danger surrounding them all the time can be really stressful in-universe and to most players.
  • 6. No Metagaming, please.
  • 7. DO NOT GO RAILROADING CHARACTERS/PLAYERS INTO YOUR OWN PLOTS OR INTERACTING WITH THEM WITHOUT ASKING PERMISSION. It's rude, it can lead to massive confusion, and it smacks of recklessness. If you want to get somebody to join in a plot, make sure they are fully on board with your idea before you try to go forward with it. If you want your characters to do something with a certain character, make sure the player that plays that character has given you their full consent. Do not jump the gun under any circumstances. Also, do not integrate other player's characters into your character's backstory without permission given beforehand. It has a high probability of causing massive continuity issues, in addition to being...rude.
  • 8. There is no absolute GM here but we don't tolerate chronic rulebreakers or troublemakers here.
  • 9. In light of recent events, introducing gods will usually be rejected. In terms of Superweights, 3 is the highest acceptable level. However, they can be mentioned or be part of a character's or a setting's background, just don't have them be part of the group. If you want to have a Tier 4 character, you must ask us. Superweights 5-7 are total no-nos.
  • 10. Regarding HSAU characters, we're limiting it to 1 per player, 2 as long as it is still less then half your roster, and you have to bus one to get another slot.
  • 11. Due to a long painful history, complaints, insults, and outright arguments are greatly discouraged. If you have a problem regarding the RP, write it in a form of a critique or simply state it politely and we must reply them without letting our emotions or egos get in the way. The discussion is a place to analyze and solve problem, not to make them worse and degenerate into bickering. Remember the main purpose this place, discussions.
  • 12. Every one that joins the group is given a free radio, no exceptions.
  • 13. Any thing involving the "Whole Multiverse" will instantly be rejected, no exceptions, due to not working as a concept, you can't have all of an infinite set where every one is different, and because the players them selfs hate the idea of any thing affecting every thing. Every dimension, everything is just a mere speck to an endless existence itself. It's not going to work in WAOA, it's not going to work here either.
    • 13-A. We are open to you resubmitting said plot, reworked to not be as bighuge, but if you can't, then we will not accept or play it.

Also, we're now using templates to outline our plots.

  • Arc Name: Brief summary
  • So and on so forth

Hum... seems good. With the proper aspirations this could turn out well.

Oh, by the way, WAOEA is going to be considered Canon Discontinuity due to all the crap the RP has suffer for.

Do you have the right to call that? It's technically my RP, remember?

Ah, I think I might try one last time to get into a WAOA-type game. I love the concept, but the RP threads always seem to go way too fast for me, especially when I'm not online. >.< But I guess I'll give one last attempt and try to somehow get into it. Hopefully this'll work out this time, ahah~

Well you declared WAOEA to be dead so I'm the one who's restarting this from scratch.

[up] WAOEA still happened, and since Katsuun took over as GM, you have no right to be discounting it. That's his job, if he even chooses to.

I'm saying it's dead, yes, but that doesn't mean events in it weren't canon. I'll leave that up to the individual.

[up] So, can we still continue where we left off right here?

If that is what you wish.

I won't be in though, at least not yet. Good luck.

Alright then.

But first, I need other people's suggestions for the rules before I could start this off.

I generally see no extra rules that need to be set up.

Anyways, what exactly is the plan for when it does get started up? Is it the same setting and characters and overarching plot shit going on?

Yes and yes, some are suggesting that we continue where we left off but we could abort the Great Game Arc if we want or halt it so our characters can rest for a while.

Basically, we stop the story and let our characters relax a bit or continue the action.

I'd just put less focus on it. As in, maybe it's an occasional topic of conversation or make it less obvious people are coming to get them over the keys or whatnot. It's a fine idea, but it could be stifling if emphasized too much.

That's what I'm thinking of too and being DM to a plot can really tax my mind.

A reminder to everyone, the hotel the group's staying at is near two sources of relaxation and pleasure, a theme park and a beach for our characters to enjoy. Also, the current location the group's in is a futuristic Earth, specifically, the edge of the West Coast in North America.

EDIT: The RP is now up and running.

If it's okay, I might jump back in with The Four Lords. Or I might not. Aint sure yet.

Sure but unlike WAOEA, having worlds in danger in requires permission and general approval.

Well, this is the same continuity, isn't it? o_O

If it is, then they're much the same as they were in the RP: that is, attempting to develop some sense of normality and not being on a constant genocidal campaign.

As it is, I figure is about a week or two has passed since they were directly part of the group, it's because they were, I dunno, trying to get jobs or something.

If anybody actually posts, I'll explain what's been happening to them, and why Lankolyk is feeling so miserable.

Yes, it is.

Oh, since all of the characters in WAOEA/WAOAA went into WAOA, we're now starting of with newcomers in the same location, so my current PC is only Watatsuki no Yorihime for now.

Wait a sec, I'm confused. We are our epic (or adventuring) avatars has been temporarily merged with regular WAOA? o_O

No, we're still at the same place, a futuristic city, but some R Pers like me, Sparty, and Sunova has bussed characters back to WAOA.

I don't know if my characters went there, but I'm definitely for rejoining this version.

I'll definitely see if any ideas I have I can give to you guys in this thread, before having it in the RP. If we're still going with the Great Game, then Zane still has a key, right?

Yes, of course.

Speaking of teh current plot line, I was thinking of bringing back the Citadel, but in a different form, alongside it's new comrade...

A young girl who seems to have everything going for her: a bit dim, shy & yet still impulsive & obnoxious, but for some reason everyone loves her and agrees with her, even when it makes no sense to do so. She seems to become more powerful based on the perceptions of other people, and the fabric of the world itself seems to distort itself around her.

Does her existence cause other people to like her, or they just do? Trying to figure out how it would affect Zane if he burns copper (which has two effects, keeping other Allomancers burning bronze from noticing him, and sheltering his emotions from being manipulated).
