Okay, as you've all probably realized, everyone's been slaughtered.

>.>

<.<

...Yes. XP Between school, work, college, family crises, final exams, and all that other stuff, people don't have much time these days. I also know that Tifa-mun and Cloud-mun lost their electricity over in NJ due to a huge three-day storm, and I'm not sure if they've got that back yet.

So I'm wondering:
First of all, who's still here? If you plan to keep your character, please comment and say you're alive and well. If you'd prefer to drop the character, please let me know as well in a comment here.
Second, what would you prefer to do? This is a very bad time for everyone, since people in the US have their final exams coming up, or they have a job, or...some people are having family issues, which just kills them in the free time department. I want to take a poll and see what would be better for you guys. Should we round up the muns we have, plus more people we can grab, and continue? Or would it be better for all of you if we shut down, or at least took a hiatus until it all blows over? It will be a majority vote; if more people want to keep going, we'll keep going, and if you're too busy, you can drop your character and live your life properly. ;-; If more people want to stop playing, though, and still want to keep their characters, we'll pause gameplay until everyone can start up again. (This might be a more difficult option, since our schedules probably won't match up.)

Please let me know!

Continue as usual, and I have enough spare time to keep my character.

I know not a whole lot is happening, especially with Cid (which is somewhat annoying to me...can we get things moving, PLEASE?!?!?!?!) but I wanted to post this anyway.

Selkis and I are attending Anime Boston this weekend, as some of you already are well aware (mainly because I don't shut up about it...). We are taking her laptop with us, and we will be posting some random voice posts to our personal journals over the course of the weekend, but it is highly unlikely that we will be around on AIM or anything very much all weekend. A little, sure, but not a lot, since this is my first con and I've asked her to make sure I get the full experience and not sit on her computer the whole damned time.

After tomorrow morning/early afternoon I will not be around until Monday morning, but Selkis will be around I would imagine for a lot of tomorrow, even after we're at the hotel because there's nothing happening tomorrow night, and on Sunday night for sure after everything's over and she's dumped me at the airport. LOL. In between that, it probably won't be likely that you'll see her much either.

I just wanted to mention this so that EVERYBODY knows what we're up to this weekend. Have a great one!

If you want to finish that log, get a hold of me. I'd be willing to pick up where we left off.

So, I just found out now that my character is actually a guy. *waits for the laughter to start* That's what I get for not checking out Before Crisis on Wikipedia until tonight. Soooo, since I already have made this account and put work into it, I will keep the same journal but change the character, unless I have requests to keep it. After tomorrow, everything I've done previous will be disregarded. Thank you.

Finally got an AIM account, username "colinhighwind."

EDIT!: Also, I'll be in Ottawa from April 1-8, so Colin will be on auto-pilot, probably trying to find a way to Junon to bring his cousin-in-law some cigarettes.

Everyone's favorite guard beast is here! He likes to pretend he's human and sneaks on Rufus' computer to look at faces. He also understands human speech, but will be available for more face-to-face logs.

Please add him here!



Yes, modly permission was asked. :)
[ oh please. ]
Hello, hello, hello our dear and darling silent members of the community.

Our presence has been awfully quiet I understand, but real life has a way of kicking people in the ass. But fear not, for we have been planning things to easy up the gaming as of now.

1. NO TIME LOCK.

You heard us right, as of now, everything is unfrozen and moving at it's easy pace. After talking it over, we decided it's unfair to have any sort of time restriction (based on the level of activity) especially with so many of you heading right into finals after Spring Break and so on. Therefore, post easily as you please, just remember to check with your friends and who you're playing with on the consistency of your timings.

It would be easier, however, that instead of specifically stating dates/times, you could just link to threads, or say (yesterday, today, earlier, etc.) Just a heads-up.

2. POST LOGS AT YOUR OWN LEISURE

This means there is NO ORDER in which logs should go. Just be sure to mention what happened where by using this simple header before all your logs in dagm69_logscopy and paste:



Tags are not required, but they do help sort out who's logs are up. So apply them at your own ease!

3. EVENT CALENDAR

This is an idea that we have in the works and we shall soon be implementing a calendar of events. This is basically going to work like this:

♥ The calendar is going to cover a majority of events, incidents, missions and things that will be happening in in-game-real time. However, we will correspond these dates to real dates to help move the plot and game along.

♥ You are required to refer to this calendar to see if your character will ICly know of it's happening. Those dates marked in BOLD are events ICly you cannot know. You will know them oocly. The rest are known ICly and OOCly. These will be clearly marked as in the following example.

example
April 15th - April 17th (15/4 GAIA - 17/4 GAIA ) - [ for Shinra Employees/SOLDIER/Turks ] - President Shinra's Birthday - All offices are closed on these days. Enjoy some days off! Parade in Midgar Sector 1 and Downtown Junon.
April 25th - (25/4 GAIA) [ for EVERYONE ] - Bombing of Sector 9's Mako Reactor - AVALANCHE attacks the Sector 9 reactors. (ooc; if your character is in the vicinity, please react accordingly)
April 27th - (27/4 GAIA)[ for TURKS ] - Group mission to be announced by Veld involving recent bombing events. Sign up here [link]
April 30th - (30/4 GAIA) - [ for SOLDIER ] - Evaluation Day - President Shinra arriving for Weapons Inspection in JUNON. All SOLDIER personnel will be in the city at the time.

/end example

Now this does mean that you can only respond to the events on the days they happen, but have no fear if you're not available. Backlogging is always there.

- Also, this does not mean you all do nothing on days between event days! On the contrary, this means you're free to have your characters be in whatever location they are, and develop them through interactions with other characters! Just keep the events in mind, as they're happening in the FF7 world and can't exactly be ignored entirely! They're to give the game a backdrop. So, be sure to work towards the events, etc etc.

♥ If you have any events you'd like to put in, please comment and we'll set slots for them accordingly.

4. CHARACTER IC-NESS

We shouldn't have to stress this, but your characterisation counts. You simply should NOT try to warp a character's personality to suit you own needs. Grammar, good writing and presentation also count in logs. Spell-check your logs, try to be presentable when writing your characters. While we're all fans of FF7, we shouldn't forget the BASIC idea of the characters that everyone knows. If there will be any OOC-ness that the mods notice, you will be contacted immediately and asked to work things out. Please don't take this as an offense, we're trying to do what will help you as players have fun and not be confused with on how to react if they don't understand how to make characters respond to possible out of character-ness.

5. POSTING STYLE

As of now, we have three forms of journal styles we will do in the game.

NETWORK: Journal entries on the network. These can be numbered in the subject, and are computer-to-computer as you've been doing so far.
FACE TO FACE: Journal entries that are 'recorded' - please mark '[locked to:]' for any specific person you want to comment to the log, or leave it open but be sure to fill in your[location] to let others in the location know if they can visibly respond. Actions can be added in [brackets like these] These entries are written like normal journal entries, but can be dictated and happening in real time.
COMMENTLOG: Like face-to-face, these are logs but they can be done on the journals using the [Face to Face] rule. If you think the logs are better suited in the logs community (AIM logs, long paragraphs) please use your judgement and post them there.

Many players also use 'double/triple' comments using different comments and icons to express something. If you wish to use this method, please number the first subject with the number of comments you'll be posting (example 1 of 3) , and once they're done, reply to the last comment for the group of three. Examples will be up soon.




And that's it! Any questions, feel free to ask! This is implementation week, and calendars will be up by next week. Until then, interact, react, have fun!

Your loving mods! ♥
25th-Mar-2007 09:45 pm - Hello!
cid tea
Just wanted to introduce myself...the name's Quinn. Okay so that's not my real name but does it really matter? I was directed here by the lovely Selkis, who is my kindred spirit, my little sister and one of my best friends on the planet.

I will be playing Cid.

Going to warn you right now. I have seen Advent Children several times. And that's it. So if I ask stupid questions and get annoying about it...that would be why. I really don't know much about what's going on and will be learning as I go. I hope you can all be patient with me.

Anyway, feel free to add teadrinkinpilot to your lists for the game and please add teadrinkinpilot to your AIM buddy lists! When I'm online on my own screen name, Cid's online on his! :)

I can't wait to meet you all and get started! :)
