Doom Day! [Mar. 20th, 2004|11:29 am]

Good morning everyone, and what a wonderful morning it is!

For today is the morning of DOOM.

We've all been busy little rpers for the past few days, havign conversations and setting things up. Thanks to all the players involved in the current doom, you've all been great sports so far.

And another thank you to the players not directly involved in the current doom. We're gonna give everyone a week or so to get adjusted to the post-doom set-up and then we'll be working on perhaps a more lighthearted doom for the scoundrels and rascals and lovebirds.

And one more thank you to a non-player, one of my best friends and the person responsible for the sumerian I keep posting in Methos' journal: The ever-resourceful cobaltnine. You rock real hard hon. Thankee sai.

DOOM! (oops, I mean PLOT!) [Mar. 14th, 2004|01:12 am]
ooc_swords

bluehorseman
So some of y'all are probably wondering about this "plot" we claim to have.

For more details please see:
Adam Pierson's post regarding the stolen obelisk with comments from Amanda and Marcus.
Dana Brooks' post regarding the African ceremonial daggers.

The schedule for Saturday's doom is as follows:
Claire and Stevens
Richie and Stevens
Claire and Richie
Amanda and Stevens
Amanda and Duncan
Duncan and Stevens
Adam and Connor
Dana and Matt and Nathan
Claire, Richie, Duncan, Stevens
Claire, Richie, Duncan, Adam, Connor (Matt, Dana, Nathan)
(those last two are the tough ones)

I believe the only conversation which does not involve a mod (and therefore needs some prior notes on what's supposed to be happening) is Claire and Richie.

As for characters not directly involved in the doom:
Marcus and Amy should be getting a message from Adam at some point on the 20th.
Jon will be spending the night with Joe.
Will can act neurotic at Nathan's sudden disappearance.
Kit and Fitz should get drunk, perhaps together... just for fun.
Robert and Gina are welcome to do whatever they want for now, like have hot passionate married immortal sex.

For details on your conversation(s), please contact one of the mods. The first four or so could be done before Saturday (in fact, it would probably work better that way), but the real crazy ones are the big ones at the end.

Unfortunately, as they are at the end, they require the previous events to make sense. If anyone involved has a problem with Saturday, please please please reply here and let us know! Also it might be a good idea to reply here telling us when you are available this week to rp so that whoever you need to work with can make plans with you.

Because I care about you all... [Mar. 7th, 2004|04:53 pm]

Wondering what's going on? Too much backstory to slog through for all the players? Not quite sure how everyone relates to everyone else? Beginning to think that the smut is the point of the game?

Well fear not, for I am here to answer your questions and illuminate what's going on!

1. We have a plot. Yes, it's developing slowly, but it exists. As I mentioned before, it shall be coming to a head on the 20th. Since not everyone was around when immortal_thief, original_mac and I were coming up with plot at the beginning there are some players who are not majorly involved in the current doom. We promise that once this doom is wrapped up we will have a much more all-encompassing doom for y'all.

2. Minor plots are welcome, we've got a few going on, not all of which have or had anything to do with us mods. Just please let us know what you are up to so we can let you know if it conflicts with something we have planned.

3. Relationships between characters are important. They might not be so thoroughly dealt with later in the game but since we're still finding our footing... Again, feel free to ask any of us mods if you have something in mind.

4. As for what's going on with everyone, what follows is A Mod's Perspective on The Game (otherwise known as what I think is going on, please players, feel free to correct me if I'm utterly off base).
A Mod's PerspectiveCollapse )

I get the feeling that I'm forgetting people, but there are so gosh darn many of us by now...

Got something to add? A correction to make? A question to ask? Go ahead and reply here!

So I spent a little bit of time yesterday making these. I'm a little annoyed that I didn't manage to make a scale for them, but they're decent enough.

Character background - Methos [Feb. 25th, 2004|06:22 pm]

[music |Portishead - It's a Fire]

So I've been going some digging around at work (the wonders and luxuries of working in a library) to get some more concrete details for the Methos I'm playing (as opposed to the Evening at Joe's Methos, or any other fanfic Methos...).

So here's what I have so far, any help in more specific dates and all would be wonderful. As I've mentioned, I love history now that I have no time to really study it, but when I had the chance to study it, my teachers were so crappy I never paid attention.

I am aware that Methos.org has a timeline, but they've included book quotations to fill theirs in and I'm not going to use a lot of that stuff.

Methos timelineCollapse )

Fashionably late, Kit O'Brady [Feb. 6th, 2004|08:58 pm]

gambling_nature
Wandered in off of the watchers. I plea for mercy!

"Gambling is a principle inherent in nature."

Kit O'Brady's crowning achievement was the opening of the flourishing Double Eagle Saloon back in California's Gold Rush in the Gem that is San Francisco. Of course, that all came crashing down when a certain femme fatale hustled him out of his home and lively hood and sent him sprawling impoverished over a hundred and seven year old string of bad luck, a plight worse than disease for such a well weathered gambler.

His luck had finally begun to change in 1995 when he had won a large sum in a Mahjong game. Granted, he was shot shortly afterwards, but it gave him enough to put half down on a racehorse aptly named Double Eagle. Sure, for an evening he had to share the blasted thing with that treacherous witchwoman. But after, in a fair game of chance, he got it, and with it, his luck turned.

The horse remained in his assets, and he eventually paid off his debtsto the loansharks that had shot him back in China. Most of them anyway. With his choice of lifestyle returned to him, he relocated to Seacouver making a life on the Track.

A rogue with his share of dreams and class. Kit O'Brady feels the most comfortable in utter decadence, surrounded by the most prime aesthetics, both contemporary and classical. He utterly detests anything that requires manual labor though has enough strength in his sword arm to take a head on the drawing of his cane sword and make short work of any cheats that his rather keen eye could discover. He also has an allergy to the Sense of other immortals, causing a sneeze anytime one would come near.

"You see this? Not a single callous. Now /that's/ something a man can be proud of."

Everyone in the game so far should be getting a invite into sword_friends. For the easy of players and watchers of the game, it is a place to copy-post your character journal entries. So when you make a post to your character journal, you'll also make a post to sword_friends. Comments will still remain in character inviduial journals. Please back date all entires you have made thus far to sword_friends for the date they were originaly posted.
ETA: Horton is possesing LJ. Er. Don't ask. All entries made from this point on in character journals should be copy-posted in above said journal. Until futher note do not attempt to place older entries in. LJ refuses to formate the dates and entires together correctly.
If you have any questions just ask.
