    So.. I figured we needed one of these.

    I am confused.. Am I Renic? Has Justice come for me? Hence Malar attacking?

    Confusion ensues.

    Hi - may I join the game, too? :)

    If so - anything in particular I should know about it (setting, rules)? (If there was a thread discussing these, I've missed it, sorry.)
    I've read the game thread so far.

    hey loreseeker. El and I just wanted to post again like the old days, so we decided we would. The biggest thing we've thought about, is no saving the world battle after battle scenes. Battle scenes are fun, but when there are too many, and monsters just pop out of no where that's where threads lose interest. What we're thinking is, go solo for a bit. Explore your character, don't make him static and classic. Do things that are risky.

    Right after this "meeting" with El and Scot, I am going to restart my hunt. Scot thought about being the creature who I was hunting, if that tickles your fancy. PM me, just because i would like to know what i am hunting.

    Scot PM'd us, El and I are best friends, so we didn't need an OCC thread. But with new arrivals, this is the only other thread about it. you missed nothing.

    Yes, Elwithral is Renic, and Justice has come for him. Welcome Loreseeker, maybe we can get an RP that will last a good long time. It seems so far that our characters are all very powerful beings that used to be more powerful. But anything would go.

    Ok, thank you all. :) I'll go think up a char - hopefully joining tomorrow (I'm supposed to be in the lab now). No problems with keeping it solo for a while.

    Yeah, Malar was once a very powerful magic user, and soul collector. It became an addiction for both Malar and Vaa'iyl, but now both are trying to quit cold turkey. Malar has had a little bit more success in quitting, but this new encounter might trigger some flashbacks.

    Aww... Thank you. :) *blushes a bit*

    I'm having great fun with this game. Glad to have joined.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    EDIT:
    Shouldn't post at 3am, dead tired, it seems. Didn't put a whole number of things I wanted to.
    Including a praise or two:

    For me, the whole thread is a pretty great read.
    I love to "riff off" from Scot's posts. He's excellent at introducing Fun Stuff Happening, IMO. Easy to follow from there. So, nice job, Justice :)


    And what I was going to post about:

    When Noma mentions that Justice came in the wake of the falling star, she simply means the sequence of events in time / similarity in space, not some metagame implementation of knowing that he followed the falling star. She doesn't know that (yet, hopefully).

    Also, I'm thinking that due to the never mended soul-wound she has, Noma is rather physically leaving a faint trail of loss/sorrow/spirit anguish behind her, like blood drops or bread crumbs. (Might be useful when we get to "chars crossing paths" stage at some point in the future) Unless someone objects to this trail idea, of course :)

    hmmm i like that. Malar has become a tracker, as a kind of "getting back to normal job" thing. Maybe you'll need tracking later in the future. i am really glad how this thread is turning out. i miss the old days of Roleplay Corner's Golden Days.

    Dalamar and Elwithral: How would you feel about meeting the Other Guy from Noma's tribe (which really needs a name...) ? I know you're running your own storyline and I don't want to interfere with it, since we are doing rather snazzy so far, but if you ever feel like it, I'd be happy to play him out for you, NPC fashion. (Of course, feel free to play him out yourself :) too.)

    A few more notes:
    You guys probably know that Loyal Fury is Torm. The "place of infinite places" Noma mentions is the Abyss, so she did some Planewalking, even if she is Clueless about all that jazz.

    Side note:
    I think that Noma has a solid grip on Astral (of all places) - probably arrived to the mountains through a colour pool on her way back from Abyss, where the paladin died. She is most certainly a Prime, though. It would be snazzy if it were a two way pool, since she knows where it is and could give us a nice jump point if we ever feel like taking a spin in the Astral. After all, it's the deadbook of the Powers. :) Just a stray thought.


    Oh, and none of the things I type out here have a Now label. Just random ideas for some point out in the future. Hope I'm not boring you to death.

    i enjoy both ideas....... the other man from your tribe what is he like? Malar is being watched, I was going to make it a small random encounter. (I wanted to have a fight scene, just for kicks) but i couldn't find the right story. like why would he be ambushed on the top of some mountain. i still want to finish my hunt, i have some ideas that i want to pull through. Malar is a neutral character, and i want to explore both sides. ;)

    Well, I'm guessing the other guy (calling him Rahir in my head, but any name works) is Not a Nice Person, at all. Other then that, anything goes. Have fun. :)

    (Vaguely: he could have stolen a part of the fallen star and collects rare potential spell ingredients - like wings of celestial creatures :p but seriously, I don't know much about him at this stage, so make him anything you need him to be.)

    what is Noma's tribe called? I like your writing, but I don't feel like i really know enough about them to write about a character. I would probably need you to act as an NPC if i were to meet him. If that's alright with you? i just don't want to mess around with your really awesome idea.

    It's alright with me. When you meet him, put it in IC and I'll act him out, sure. :)

    As for the tribe name... uh, tough one. Not sure yet. They definitely need it so I'll think it up real soon, promise. (I take forever with names, in general.)

    EDIT:

    Her tribe name is Sonauli. :)

    Also, my last post should probably have been two posts, but I liked the idea too much and couldn't wait. Sorry.

    Just to be sure it was Dalamar who broke this guy's arm? Alora died about three or four hundred years before, I guess these Elves hold a grudge. Hahaha

    Yes, either Dalamar or Alora, or maybe in the chase he fell out of a tree and broke his arm, as Dalamar and Alora were pulling their punches. And yes, they do hold a grudge.

    @ Loreseeker, Justice has accepted Noma's offer of belief/bounding, even if he is not quite sure what it is or how it works. Let me/him know if anything else is required.

    understandable, the story before was in Yuirwood, quite a ways away from Orsraun Mountains. I was going by the map, but no worries, I have no doubt Dalamar wasn't causing trouble in other places of the world. Malar's young rash youth I suppose.
