Welcome to the discussion thread for the City of Lost Characters crossover RP! Posting off topic messages is allowed; this thread is to hopefully be a place where we can all have some fun and relax. THAT SAID, please don't go overboard with it; if an off topic subject starts to go any longer than a page, it's probably time to reel it in. If your discussion is with only one other player specifically, consider taking it to private messages.
Other than that just please continue to be mindful of the main forum rules and role playing forum rules.
Since you may find it helpful, here is a link to our recap page.
And because I want everyone to see it at least once, I'm linking this post here.
Another possibly helpful link: PCs' inventory google doc.
Plus, some just for fun links: Our trope page. The "official" soundtrack. My Honest review of the RP as of one year running. My cutting room floor post as of two years running. A height chart for some of the PCs and NPCs. And a players' choice of questions and writing prompts for our third year anniversary.
And special fun link, Korodzik's statistics link.
If you feel the need to contact me off of TV Tropes, I can be contacted on steam if searched for as "Firock1".note Just "Firock" or "Firock Finion" should also find me if for some reason "Firock1" isn't working for you; you'll know it's me by the Kamina-shades slorg avatar. If you try to add me I might ask you to post something random in the discussion thread to prove you are who you say you are, just in case. Also, we now have a Discord server, here.
Below is a number of hopefully useful materials.

UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED BY THE CURRENT DAY CONDITIONS ALL THE BELOW INFORMATION IS ASSUMED TRUE
Here are some minecraft reference screenshots to supplement the descriptions below!
These are the various noteworthy locations in the city, though these buildings are among those that keep shifting around, so you'll never find them in the same place twice. These buildings are still subject to day rules, so may not necessarily fit the descriptions given below at all times.

I gotta say, I love how there are all these young, idealistic superhero-type characters... and then there's Rick, a cynical foul-mouthed septuagenarian off in the corner.
Gentaro's gonna befriend the shit out of Rick.
Yea, that's certainly gonna be fun. Especially if they end up in space or something
That sure is something to consider. Steven meets a potty-mouth cynic. Hrrmm.
Viktor will be more than glad to show the greatness of the GLORIOUS EVOLUTION to every fleshling.
"Sanchez-Rick, this platform is not capable of defecating on the ground. As such, I do not think I can 'get Schwifty' as you request."
"Ugh. It's an allu- it's a m-m-etaphor, LEEEEGIIOOOon. You-you're like Pinocchio, except, uh, except Pinocchio actually became- *urp* he actually turned into a real boy at the end of that movie, and you're just like, I don't know, a weird humanity groupie or something."
"Oh-oh jeez, Rick, I don't know if... I don't know if I'd m-mouth off to a guy like that. He's pretty scary-looking, you know? I don't think you'd want to piss this robot off."

"I'm just glad this fruit loop is on our side."
"Okay, maybe not."

Yay! Discussion thread!
Obvious that I'm new here (still can't get my phone to chose an avatar) so...from what I've seen of the TV Tropes forums, are our RP posts are gonna be in script form? Or something like it? XP
I'm pretty sure it's going to be in paragraph format.
Oh. Okay. Yay! I got my avatar up!
But just not very long, I take it. 'cause I can get long winded. XP Because I'm a writer.
yea probably not like unnecessarily long. If you're a writer, you probably know this by now
also don't feel bad about being a newb i mean we all start out as newbs somewhere.
i mean hey i'm still getting used to the site's markup.

Yes, I do. It was driven eveb further when I saw my friend wrote a chapter so long, it made it difficult for people to enjoy reading (except for me, apparently. Seems I can marathon read if I wanted to).
Yeah. But I kind of come from a Pokémon forum where posts can be as long as chapters from a book and it's been a while since I've been in a large RP where the posts aren't that long.
So one of the Royal Guards that serves under Undyne is reptilian. She'll probably wonder why Aeon Calcos is out of armor.
Also she'll probably wind up being besties with Steven since he's basically a more talkative version of the Undertale pacifist!protagonist.
And they both like anime! He's basically an anime character already (just more westernized).
I really gotta hurry up and get Undertale already. I'm kinda worried about spoilers since you're playing Undyne.
...There's nothing too spoilery that'll come out from her, right?
I could see Morty and Steven becoming good friends, since they're both impressionable, good-natured, fairly normal kids who regularly get embroiled in extraterrestrial shenanigans.
Steven becoming friends with Rick on the other hand... let's just say that if Steven thought becoming friends with Lars was tough...

Ashe would think everybody's weird. Even if Morty's pretty normal, she'd be suspicious of Rick. XD And Viktor. She hasn't exactly had a good time with people obsessed with science and the furthering evolution of humanity.
She'd think she's gone mad for a little bit and try to find a way out of this world until she realizes there isn't any. XP
So let's see, I'm trying to get some of the ahead of time planning done.
What do you guys think of having the break days be scheduled for every fifth day? (So days 05, 10, 15, 20, and 25.)
For those who weren't in the MMFRPG or need a reminder, the break days are the days where combat is impossible and nobody can harm each other, on top of whatever other conditions may be happening.
Sounds a-okay to me.
Would Steven using his shield count as a weapon, so he wouldn't be able to summon it on break days?
That might depend on the exact rules of the break day. (I'm not going to have them just be "combat is impossible.") But in general, no; characters can still do and use everything they normally can during a break day unless otherwise noted, it's just impossible to do so in any way that would harm another person.
Steven could summon his shield, but he couldn't throw the shield at someone Captain America style without it completely missing or mysteriously disappearing before hitting or just straight up stopping in mid air.
Fine with me.
Ah, good to know. Though I guess if combat is impossible there shouldn't be any need for his shield so my question was pointless in the long run...?
Also, should make a note that it's not exactly like Captain America in that it's not a boomerang. One throw and it just flies off, prolly poofing out of existence after a bit.
