    I will definitely say that much before I go MIA again, but like I said, the free form status of this rp will become very important once things really pick up for me here

    If Liv and Ender jump in more again then that would be an easy way to continue the story, if not I might have to create a few more people and a new faction.

    Good things or bad things?

    Oh and to make things more interesting and to make Ghost useful, I have a sweet idea. People can leak tips and plans to each other in PMs and then pass down what happens to me or "Ghost" and then I can either lie to other people for someone's benefit or tell them things to make stuff happen.

    Mostly because Ghost is non-combat at all and more of an information dealer (yes I sort of stole the idea of an information dealer, but I didn't steal the idea of using it as a game play mechanic). And Ghost can have a very good use, and it will make the RP more detailed and competitive.

    We have quite a few people playing, just that most of them aren't active. Ray, Ender, Liv, and I think a few others even.

    More or less, as long as it doesn't become pointless or stupid the idea was to have the players be as influential on the game world as the DM

    Perfect example of a good idea

    Those are the ones who've made posts, although others have expressed interest

    Hey Y'all, long time no chat, wandered by and saw a new RP going, and as I'm always up for a chance to hone my writing I'd consider joining.

    the only problem with that is the last two rps I joined here died quickly after I joined them, quicker than most anyway. So I'll understand if you don't want my bad luck in the RP.

    just off the read the posts so far...

    Keep in mind the entire point of this rp was that it could continue for as long as people kept playing, there's no overarching objective or strict structure so it can still happen if you make it happen. I mostly did this to make sure that if I got overwhelmed with stuff at school things would be able to carry on without me. I'll still make event announcements and such as is appropriate, such as what would kind of be needed for that, but the characters that I maintain control over will be less noteworthy in their actions during times of drops in my activity, that is to say, they probably won't interact with the main characters as much.

    In short, it can still happen, but you'll be the main narrator at that point.

    You can feel free to join Cru, just read the world background etc before you post your character(s), hopefully it'll be able to survive since I tried to build this one with as much adaptability as possible

    On second thought, I'll still have a relatively active presence in this rp, but it's going to stay at a fairly slow pace, so I still might be the "main" director of events, but I'm still not going to be using all my characters all the time

    and yeah, Torgg is dead, so.... only nine "top ten" level street samurai right now

    Magus, this is a boss fight, bosses are supposed to be way more powerful than player characters, especially Boom, since he's acknowledged as being a nightmare for anyone and anything he fights, no dropping global defense weapons on them, you just gotta keep fighting till you can't fight no more, since I've already got the ending to this planned out

    Explain why you don't fire it with a "We can't be sure that we wouldn't annihilate the entire city" type of thing or something

    Not this time, although if this RP lives long enough I'm sure something'll come up that requires that, matter of fact depending on how things go I have an idea for something that will require that as a means of its demise

    Reality hacking still sounds like another term for magic to me.
