We've been thinking

Jo and I have been giving a great deal of thought as to what we think might be the best move for DG as a game. Our original intention was to put together a small group of mature writers with a real affection and interest in the subject, provide a general, but not overly structured setting and let them go about their writing at a good pace with as little maintenance on our part as mods.

In all of those particular intentions, we've succeeded. The writers here are all talented and have a clear interest in the characters and the world. However, we're coming to the conclusion that our other intentions are working against us in terms of DG being an energetic and consistently progressive game. With such a small cast, we're feeling that the potential for interaction is limited, and as far as progression of plot, we could either continue in a more hands-off manner as we have been (which has resulted in very little progression) or we could become more hands-on and proactive (an approach which we know might rub some players the wrong way, and would require more time and attention that we typically have to apply to the game).

This post is open for comment, as we'd like to get your, the writers', feedback on the subject, but we are strongly leaning towards closing the doors on the comm. There has been some great and creative work done, but DG just doesn't seem to have the life we were hoping it would.

MG/Emma - half the girl i used to be

Yeah, so...

I just read AXM #16 and, um, yes. I won't spoil it for anyone who hasn't read it yet, but I will just say that Emma will NOT be doing that, and the Hellfire Club will remain the same that it's been in previous issues. :)

Alpha Squadron - Peter's squad

Because I am lousy at thinking of things sometimes...

Peter will head Alpha Squadron, with the following members:

Anole - leader (so yes, he and Kitty will each have a green guy.. I plan to use that sometime.. XD)- agility camoflage... sticky tongue.. clingy... I had a date like that once...
Indra - armor plates
Network - talks to machines.. can reprogram things with her thoughts
Onyxx - um.. rocky... and .. well Mystique knocked him out with a? sink? toilet? well.. he can't be as strong as he looks
Rubbermaid - young stretchy girl
Aero - Melody Guthrie.. because eventually there will be at least 1 Guthrie... everywhere you go... she flies

Let me know if there are issues with this... Thanks!

kitchen.. cafeteria.. etc..

I assume there is a cafeteria.. right? with as many people as are in the mansion there has to be one... maybe a standard sorta breakfast buffet-ish thing in the morning? or something... I know there is a kitchen.. like what we rp'd in... but I assume there is a bigger kitchen, etc. and a cafeteria... probably with decent hours since there are so many people?

The Next Day

Ta-da! It's the next day! Sorry it took so long. FYI, this is going to be the month of HELL for us in terms of availablity! I'll get Emma's post up sometime today (hopefully) and that'll cap that thread, but yes. Next day now. Woot!

(no subject)

I finally posted a closing move for Piotr on the Piotr and Kitty arm of that initial RP. I was going to leave Kitty's post as the final, but decided I should add something (that's why it took so long)

So... Piotr is open for an RP if anyone wants some XD
Hugh - Shit

Availability

Sorry I haven't been able to post this earlier!

I'm going to be busy for the next two weeks. After that, though, if anyone has ideas for interacting with Logan, please feel free to hit me up on AIM (thewhedonrules) or email at restlesshush@yahoo.com!

Thanks, Robert

My absence as of late and to come

Hey guys some of you may have noticed I've been a bit absent the last few days. I had company here and just had them leave yesterday. The good news is I'm around for a couple of days (until Thursday) so if you'd like to run a little scene with me I'm on YIM (bashipforever) and AIM (onlyfell)

The bad news, after Thursday morning I won't be around except (hopefully) very sporadically for two weeks. We've got company from Europe coming to visit and stay with us. In my absence just assume Rogue is in her room or the library or something just reading and adjusting to being back in the mansion.

I'm really enjoying things so far and I'm looking forward to getting back into the game with you guys mid August!

Question of time

Hi, How does time pass in this game.. as it has been weeks, and we are still on the first day... Will movement through time be mod controlled.. Will we jump into real time.. or what?

I am not complaining, I am just curious. I would almost think, given the sort of "different style" of this rp, that having mod controlled time is probably better.. at least to begin with, but I will go with whatever you say. The focus is a little different here than in some RP's, and it's cool with me.
