Title: M15-3 NUNS Side OOC
Post by: Sketchley on October 28, 2011, 02:25:00 PM
Game started first post dibs!

Game Q & A here, thanks.

The plan is to get a bunch of game related rules etc up within the next day or so.

Nevertheless, looks like we've got a 3-way tie for the squad name: Dragon Slayers, Hummingbirds, Wildcards.  Hopefully a clear winner will emerge by the time the poll closes.  Don't quite want to roll randomly...

Hey Guys! I'm playing in this squadron! Anyone else will join us?

I'll offer to take part either is a Supporting NPC or a PC who doesn't get involved in any decisions do to this player's knowledge of possible spoilers.

Supporting PC, please.

I'd like to request that the two of you begin making PCs for the game... but as the locations guide is lacking a bunch of important information, I think it's best to focus our efforts on getting the bare bones basics of that established first.  (Hint: Halley, this is your chance to get some input into the background fabric of the campaign.

Post by: MasumiX on November 02, 2011, 10:17:57 PM
I'm going to join this game as well as a supporting character/pilot.
If I might suggest  that character background write up are posted/filtered for background content to add to the environment info.

Again I'll third that with a support character

Post by: Jet Jockey on November 03, 2011, 12:18:12 PM
I'm leaning towards making a Mechanic-pilot.    Like how Canaria Berstein pilots the VB-6 Konig Monster and than wears a doctor's coat.  This one wears overalls.
Title: Re: M15-3 NUNS Side OOC
Post by: Sketchley on November 03, 2011, 12:59:02 PM
I believe Halley's PC will also be a mechanic-pilot.  I believe MasumiX is going to have an intelligence specialist-pilot.

Hegemon, are you interested in having a PC that's a pilot/specialist in another field, or just a straight pilot?
Title: Re: M15-3 NUNS Side OOC
Post by: Jet Jockey on November 03, 2011, 01:45:31 PM
I'll think of something.
Title: Re: M15-3 NUNS Side OOC
Post by: hegemon on November 03, 2011, 08:13:46 PM
I'm thinking just a straight pilot tbh.
Title: Re: M15-3 NUNS Side OOC
Post by: Halley on November 03, 2011, 11:02:38 PM
Hegemon, if you want to be pilot/mechanic, i'm ok to change my setting. the choice is yours
Title: Re: M15-3 NUNS Side OOC
Post by: hegemon on November 04, 2011, 12:11:15 AM
no hally i'm fine with straight [ilot thats what I prefer
Title: Re: M15-3 NUNS Side OOC
Post by: Jet Jockey on November 04, 2011, 01:03:06 AM
I'll do a straight pilot too.   Maybe either a gun nut.
Title: Re: M15-3 NUNS Side OOC
Post by: Jet Jockey on November 08, 2011, 07:21:14 PM
My idea

Saffron Jacques-Burton/Saffron Wilde
Age 23, 152 cm, 48 kg, blonde and green eyes.

Pretty 'Southern' girl of Clone parents migrated to the Macross 15 with her parents at a very young age, rather rowdy grew up with brothers.  Ambidextrous, small arms expert, favors twin revolvers, daisy dukes & plastic costume cow girl hats.    Married & divorced at an early age.  Dreams of being famous.   Isn't interested in being famous for a particular talent.  Just wants to be famous.  Adopted the Stage Name Saffron Wilde and insists the Wildcards are named after her.

Title: Re: M15-3 NUNS Side OOC
Post by: Sketchley on November 14, 2011, 03:07:46 AM
JJ, the proposal is OK, but it does raise one question: why did she join NUNS?  Nevertheless, I guess that answer will crop up when the character is being built in the CRB...
Title: Re: M15-3 NUNS Side OOC
Post by: Sketchley on November 27, 2011, 01:52:10 AM
Alright, MasumiX, Halley & JJ, if you guys want to start playing, you can start.

Yeah... I know the PC sheets are still WIP but... me feels that the main hurdle is the game mechanics side at this point.  As game mechanics aren't needed in the game for the time being, waiting for them to be completed at this point will just get in the way of RPing.
Title: Re: M15-3 NUNS Side OOC
Post by: Jet Jockey on November 28, 2011, 08:15:27 PM
Are you guys ready too?

No worries.  Been busy, busy, busy.

My GM post was planned for Sunday, but that got pushed back and forgotten.  By the time I remembered it, it was yesterday...

December.  Terrible month.
Title: Re: M15-3 NUNS Side OOC

Taking a break for Christmas.

Hopefully Halley will have been able to post by the time the busyness of Christmas ends.

okay, holiday nonsense is over with. whew.  is anyone else having trouble loading the forums?  sometimes they load, sometimes they stall for me. could be a problem my end. anyone else?
Title: Re: M15-3 NUNS Side OOC
Post by: Sketchley on January 03, 2012, 04:41:28 AM
I haven't had any problems, but I'll check the server nonetheless.

It *may* just be due to heavy use at the host server IP.


... hmmm... it's not accepting my user ID or password...
Title: Re: M15-3 NUNS Side OOC
Post by: MasumiX on January 03, 2012, 04:58:20 AM
its resolving the host, i see when I load the details that the web-page is mostly loaded, everything is accoundted for except it wont display the page, its a little bizarre. I swept my browser clean, and tried a different type (firefox, chrome, safari) all produce the same "hiccup".  its not loading a cached file, first suspect out.  its not loading a moved/deleted forum topic (had that happen before... but not this time)second suspect down...ping to the host is less than a second, its not time-out failiure...so I'm out of leads.
Title: Re: M15-3 NUNS Side OOC
Post by: Sketchley on January 03, 2012, 05:01:29 AM
Is this happening right now?  If so, I'm having no trouble.

It *may* be your IP.  I've had issues with some sites with some former IP hosts.

Saffron's last line was in 'these marks' as in she's was talking to herself.  If she was using "these" it would have been out loud.

Hasn't the format always been italics for internal dialogue?
Title: Re: M15-3 NUNS Side OOC
Post by: Jet Jockey on January 09, 2012, 10:48:02 PM
I thought both were used.

Title: Re: M15-3 NUNS Side OOC
Post by: Sketchley on January 09, 2012, 11:42:23 PM
The only time that I can remember single quotation marks used to indicate thought is if they've been accompanied with prose indicating that the text is a thought.

E.g.: 'Cogito ergo sum', thought Descartes.


... so, the only way to be completely clear is to add "thinks/thought <PC name>" to future internal dialogue.

Which I think is the best way to go, as there are (international) readers who use software that occasionally have different regional standards that don't always render punctuation marks the same way.

Masumix`s monday
  • work 10 hours
  • go to IKEA
  • buy new cabinet/tv/computer stand for living room
  • go home, eat 2 carrots and a bag of crisps
  • spend 3 hours dismantling the computer/tv/games/stand and building new stuff
  • find computer box too big for new cabinet and rip face plate off box.
  • 12:15 am tues. plug computer back in, short DVD drive power cable, fry power supply, motherboard, memory sticks, video card and CPU....
  • cry like a baby for 10 minutes then hit craigslist to try and find a new box....

and here we are a week later, still no computer  TT . TT  wah~ i sure hope I can save those hard drives...

O.o

The only consolation I can offer is that you're not the only one who's been having a bad week.

Aside from myself, there's that cruise ship running aground and sinking off the coast of Italy, and the tanker explosion off the coast of South Korea.  The later one... well:

That tanker is most rightly an epic fail.

Along with some classics:

Post by: Sketchley on January 17, 2012, 09:53:28 AM
wow.

The preamble to the Water Dragon Year hasn't been very nice to a lot of us.  I wonder what big changes it'll bring when the year truly starts on Chinese New Year?

Big changes that have been predicted by the BBC, among others.  Lessee, the examples they cited were the start of the start on the "war on terror" and the ensuing wars (2000 leading into 2001), and the start of the collapse of the USSR (1988, leading into 1989).


But I do notice some plus Halley.  New apartment AND first car.  Awesome teh sexh.  (I think that it may be a reminder to us who've had a week of troubles - these bad things are like the fires in Australia that clear away the old to make room for the new).

What is the car?  How old?

Hi there. Sorry for not being arround everyone but my life is much more occupied then i think it would be. that's also mean i'm not sure i'm gonna be back here very often, so i'm better retire myself then making promisces to play when i'm sure i can keep up. I'll be coming look at updates from time to time, but i'm gonna look if i can come back only in march.

And the car is a brand new Honda civic 2012 :) I have to work hard to pay it! ;)

I decided that i wanted a japonese or nothing ^_-

Alright... I'm expecting work to be... less stressful?  We've found the new employees... alas, my schedule is getting a lot fuller... and it's still the end of the school year and the start of a new one is looming ever closer and closer...

Waiting on MasumiX - not so much to post, just to confirm that he's found the back-up site.

Has it been more than I month since the last GM post?  Time flies...

anyhow, finished the setting-image of the "A" camp: http://studiootaking.deviantart.com/art/A-group-Mining-Camp-338363314


I made it "authentic Macross" by adding a Crawler and Junky.  ;)

Finished the setting-image of the "B" camp: http://studiootaking.deviantart.com/art/B-Group-Mining-Camp-338551492?q=gallery%3Astudiootaking&qo=1

Alas, it's a little bit on the garish side, and I probably could have put down a layer or two of dust... not to mention dimming the whole image down as the planetoid is supposed to be bathed in eternal twilight.  That said, artistically, I like the colour contrasts and sense of depth.

Now to make time for the GM posts...
Title: Re: M15-3 NUNS Side OOC
Post by: Sketchley on September 15, 2013, 11:36:09 PM
Well, this game, as-is, is over (heh, almost a year between GM posts.  Time flies!)

Anyhow, I've recently been reminiscing about a Zentraadi themed game I played on the MRC about a decade ago, and it's got me thinking about a Zentraadi pirates/privateers/whatever themed game taking place in the borders of a Zentraadi controlled sector of space.

Thoughts?
