Something besides the equivalent of "NO YOU". That shouldn't be hard, right?
@tinuviel I don't know if the thread has just come full circle here (re: some concepts don't work well in this medium and should potentially be restricted), or if we just agree or disagree really strongly.
Let's say I have a scene posted for 'it's a normal day at the diner when two thugs show up and try to rob the joint', and Giles, the sniper, the seamstress, and let's say someone specializing in playing guitar, and another who is a crime scene tech are the ones who sign on to show up.
Are you suggesting that each of these characters should reasonably have a chance to demonstrate their primary concept skill in this scene or someone is a failure as an ST? (Sniping, occult research, tailoring, playing guitar, and investigating a crime that hasn't yet occurred?)
See, I agree that everybody in a scene should have a chance to do something useful and have a turn in the spotlight.
I'm most emphatically not on board with the idea that every scene has to be adjusted beyond a reasonable point to showcase everyone's conceptual focus snowflake factor.
Or are you suggesting that these concepts being approved with a laser focus that renders the characters useless outside that one task is idiotic and that people shouldn't be creating one-trick pony characters? (On this, I would agree.)
Tell everyone about your New Games, Old Games and New Old Games. Hurrah!
There will definitely be more events.
Once I get my brain wrapped around 'pirates' and not 'scifi' (I can come up with like, a dozen scifi plots and one-offs... pirates and magic in the 17th century? That's harder for me) and my RL finishes chilling the fuck out from Hell Month, I'll be running, too.
I also plan to run some long-term plots once I come up with them, with scenes to highlights points in the plots.
And as the bbposts on game say: if you wanna see something in particular, let me know! (Missed out on the chupacabra fight but really wanna fight one? Drop me a line on game and I'll see if we can work out scheduling one you can make it to. :))
I have a fairly flexible schedule, but if people don't speak up, I will be scheduling things when my lazy ass wants to do them. But I really do want to make people happy. You just have to speak up and let me know what you want to see.
For discussions unrelated to MU. Anything else goes.
In my youth I was the witness to a crime against a friend of mine. A crime of heinous and barbaric nature.
The perpetrator of said crime is up for parole, and I have been given the chance to testify once more in order to prevent that parole from occurring. Originally I wasn't going to, as much as it pained me to consider that, as I'd have to fly back to the UK to do so.
Yesterday I received a call that I could give my testimony via VOIP. I get my chance. So that's something I love today.
This almost sounds like the same premise as 'The Orville'. I'd like it a little more of 'Starfleet has said that you've gone over the line one too many times. After barely avoiding an all-out war with a normally neutral race, they've decided that you and your crew are best set to black ops work - those missions that Starfleet has wiped off the books (or don't even know about if you want to use an Admiral in starfleet that is sorta rogue, natch) and your ship is supposedly heading to the scrap yards at Surplus Depot Z13 - your first mission - steal your ship!' That said, I hope you're successful!
That's kinda the missions we will be doing. Spoilers: The Admiral is part of Section 3. His ID is a false one and the crew, depending on how they handle repairing the ship will be inducted into Section 31 to find out who caused the Romulan Star to go supernova so quickly and what the Orions have to do with it. All the while the bigger mystery is why there are so many temporal anomalies and who is killing off former agents of the Obsidian Order, Tal Shiar, and Section 31. Loads of fun brewing.
And thanks for the hope of success! I appreciate it :)
