Apologies for the silence and lack of a post from me. Had a brief period (about a week) where I was down and out in any sort of creative sense, but I'm starting to bounce back. So I'm going to try and get up a post sometime in the next couple of days!

I will begin to update the cast banners every now and then to reflect who that seems to be active. Don't get stressed out if you're not in there. When you post something, anywhere, and I see that you're still in it, then I'll just add you back. My reference point right now will be Chapter 1 and OOC/PMs.

@Rockette
Sure you did, babe. ♥
We had dinner at the school, actually. The principal ordered food and drinks for us, which was nice. So, there wasn't much to choose from, but we had Champagne and Rosé.

@metanoia
No worries at all. This is exactly what 'flashbacks' are for—to take the pressure off.

@Prisk - ooh. Lovely. We're attempting some sort of employee thing here, not at the club, no, unless we wanted to golf all day. Some of the guys suggested kayaking. Personally I have never been, but I'm all for giving it a try. We have some 100 degree weather coming up though, soooo.

Kayaking, huh? At least it's a somewhat creative choice. Just make sure to wear a low cut top with that water splashing everywhere—get the boys proper thirsty. 100 degrees? Jesus. I'm so happy right now that June is a proper, normal, Scandinavian summer. Temperature sits around 70d/20c every day with a brisk and light air swirling around. It's just, perfect.

I refuse to have this on the 3rd page, so double post incoming. Let's go through combat scenes.

The image of The Spirits Within combat that I've had in my head has finally found a great example that I can show you. This video is a class showcase of a game mode in Lost Ark. Combat scenes in the roleplay follows the same formula for enemies: Big bads that lead a ton of cannon fodder enemies. The speed and flashiness of the player character is all in there as well. The blood splatter, explosions from spirit energy, all of it is what I've wanted to convey but haven't so far.



The second part to combat is the 'game' aspect of it, which you don't have to actively take part in if you don't want to. The details of it can be found in the Codex-thread. There is a bunch of 'icons' that you attach to your combat post, which will influence how things turn out. However, main point of this post was to show the 'style' of the combat, so that the vision is uniform in all of us here.

In the past, I've written OOC comments for everyone participating. I feel like I want to do it now as well, but not everyone all at once. So, if I haven't commented on your postings yet, don't worry—Mommy will eventually get to you too!

I'll start off with @Krash: Your writing is absolutely on point. It's clean, flowy, and easy to understand as one reads it. How you world-build in your posts, add bits of information about the surroundings here and there, is fucking amazing. When I read your posts, I feel like I'm in your game, reading about your creation and ideas, which makes me geek out about you a lot. You've also picked up on formats and little things such as 'post summaries' very fast, which is impressive to me. This is because you said you were rusty, needing some time to come back to it all—well, you certainly came back BIGLY. Great job. Please stay with us for as long as you can.

@Salsa Verde
Oh yeah, me too. Although, I didn't get very far in the game. The combat gameplay was fun, but that's about it.

Continuing the comments here with @Aeolian.

O, dearest Aeolian. I hope this finds thee well. It would be cool to write everything in Miltonian prose, but I'm afraid it would take a while, heh.

You know what I think about when I read your posts? I think that this writer is also a GM. There is a distinct yet subtle difference between players and GMs being a player in another roleplay. People that are comfortable as GMs tend to have a sense for what they can and cannot do in someone else's game, which is a true delight to have. I have this fleeting memory of seeing you run your own game at one point, but I can't seem to find it—just my imagination, perhaps.

Anyway, your writing is the perfect mixture of concise and flowery prose to the point where I actually feel envy. How you create lore, drive your own plot devices, build your character, and take command of NPCs is just mind blowing to me—it is so well done. I feel really bad for shitting all over the 'Bleak' games, so I certainly won't waste your presence in this.

That is the sweetest thing anyone has ever said to me on here. Such an honor coming from you. Thank you so much :)

I've actually never been a GM before. lol I've had ideas, but the thought of actually being a GM of my own RP scares me. I don't want the responsibility or burden. I like just playing my role as a contributor! :)

I just remember the dreamy novel-like atmosphere of Bleak, and I loved it so much. So I'm really doing my best to emulate that aesthetic and make sure every post I put out is high quality. Or rather, as high as I can muster!

Anyways, thank you again. You are so kind! <3

Cheers!

@Archangel89
You shouldn't beat yourself up that much. I think your posts are and have been very iconic—they stand out a lot. You've got the comedy-melancholy mixture down to a fucking science. Of all the people I've written with, anywhere, ever, you're the one that has had the best improvement over time. The only thing that is missing now is fleshing out the details to make the posts a bit longer. I'm no writing wizard myself, but I follow two simple tricks: 800-1000 word goal + write a little over time—don't do it all in one sitting. If I didn't do these 2 things, I'd never get anything out that people can work with. Besides this, your writing has become very clean and popping ever since the first game we did years ago. You are also very fast to adapt and understand character dynamics. How you follow up on cues and details from other players, use it, and then execute an interesting follow up is and has always been a strong point of yours. It makes me very excited to see what you do whenever I interact with you in-character.

Ok! Finally! Pushed time to catch up - did not realize how quickly everyone would drop posts as soon as this hit the floor running, sweet job! I will try to figure out where it makes sense to insert my character if it is not too late. My apologies for the delay.

Update: I Saw my character's portrait was taken off, please let me know if this indicates that I am too late to the party, or just my lack of activity and that I am still good to post (I'll accept the consequences if it is the former).
