    me as bartender : yeah , sure.

    2.situation

    Agreed, Emily and I were discussing this (elitist) but didn't know if we should implement it. I like the idea of invitation only, and otherwise posters have to submit an application and an example of their writing.

    *DIES OF SHOCK*

    you're welcome. Although i'm considering putting SOME limitation on you and your characters, though nothing major since you can clearly handle them.

    Maybe something like any additional characters have to undergo the silent ballot process or your characters can't outnumber everyone else, but it will be up to my discression in the end, if you've got a good reason then you can have them.






    also for the silent ballot system, I'll pick two or three people to start with who I can trust with a keyboard who will form the basis of votes on new characters. though voting won't being untill we have a solid setting of course.

    You misspelled discretion. I don't love you anymore.

    Also, what limitation? :( Honestly, it ain't my fault if you bitches don't post and I have to make up for your lack of work.

    Oh, another suggestion. Yeah I'm double-posting.

    All major plot-twists should be approved by vote. Characters are allowed to be created (maybe up to 2 or 3?) but other number of characters should also be approved by vote. If people have a problem with other characters (being too powerful, etc.) then people can raise a silent vote.

    plot twists may be a problem as wheres the suspense if people know its going to happen. I may have to decide on that myself but thats up to debate, otherwise the rules seem good enough.


    Complaints will have to be raised to me and seconded either in OOC or by PM, if this happens i'll either judge or put it to the vote etc etc.

    We'll be buerocratic on this one to ensure fair play.

    I'm all for having a set out "goal", but if everyone knows what is going to happen next it's not going to be as fun for us. Whilst I do find the generic fantasy the most fun, I think some behind the scenes stuff is necessary to give actual depth to the RP.

    Personally I think the writers should start collaborating in real with eachother to get stuff done or to intervene with other people. Obvisously keeping definite parties would not be fun, but suprises here and there I think will add a lot to the RP.]

    On the note of balance between characters, some of us are going to have to accept the fact that some characters will be superior to other characters in certain areas. Someone may be smarter than another, or a superior fighter, etc.

    Yeah, well, look at what happened to RPG#9. ;) It was fun, but I'll assume more than my fair share of blame on that one. Besides, it only worked with us four. lol

    Also, FYI people, you should all call Senekha KTQT or KT for short. ^_^ I think it's an amazing nickname.

    I'm such a trendsetter.

    Collaboration is expected. I also suggest that everyone download MSN (it seems to be the most popular IM system here) and pass addresses around.

    Also, I'm not saying that EVERYTHING should be approved. But plot twists like "ohai ima go liek invade ur armiez" is dumb without talking it over.

    The thing about characters is - I think that for once, we shouldn't go for "He's the best assassin" "She's the best archer" crap. Only that maybe they're well known, but not the best, etc.

    Am I still allowed to either get drunk and kill my character off or hit Crusader if necessary?
