  • That's cool. I lived in Missouri for 6 years. Right now, I'm living in Connecticut. Currently I'm in Hawaii on business though, and will be for the next week, hence my long plane flight and big time difference.
  • Wow, lots of traffic today! I've been flying all day, since the beginning of this thread, so I'm still catching up. Given the high lore of the characters so far, I think I'll go with a very low lore character (like lore 1)... I'll probably post a …
  • A lot of the 'demonic' technology in Nausicaa (esp from what I understand of the manga) seems to be biological in nature, rather than mechanical. This could mean that the technology demons really are alive. Do we want to continue this or go in a d…
  • I also would prefer if we could have nature as demons. Perhaps we could have two axis of humanity if its needed (really its just one axis with two labels isn't it.) Compassion as humanity seems like it could be at direct odds with a Lore that abus…
  • Quiet all of a sudden. I think a new thread for character creation is a good idea. I have a few ideas kicking around in my head, but I haven't figured out yet which is the one I really want to play. Perhaps we should make an official one-sheet…
  • Wow. I can't believe that its just available on Google video - I didn't realize that DIsney/Miramax (the US distributors) were so agreeable to online distribution (I'm assuming its a legal distribution since its on Google video). Yup, that's the r…
  • The Nausicaa movie is perhaps one of the best anime movies ever made; its considered an anime masterpiece. It is quite old though for an anime: 1984; hence the lower quality audio and video. Like the manga its by Hayao Miyazaki, who made My Neighb…
  • I been stopping by this forum on a weekly basis, so I just noticed this sign of life. If there's still room, I'd love to join in as a player as well - I've been dying to try some Sorcerer. Sword and Sorcery, ala REH, sounds great to me, as does so…
  • I'd be really interested in Lacuna. I might be up for an Afraid game at some point, but I'm not sure about right now. A good pitch on it might be able to convince me. I'm only vaguely knowledgeable about Afraid, but DitV is no problem for me. I'l…
  • I'm still here. I'm just a bit flooded with work right now (big funding deadlines are upon us). I'll get the rewrite up soon.
  • Ok, I'll tighten it up, and make it all happen that evening.
  • I was at a real loss for what to do with Andreas so I decided to push him further into a dark direction. I figure I'll get a conflict out of that...
  • And so Andreas, though he feels no attraction to Ilsa beyond his usual physical desires, leads her on through the night - hints and subtle clues that he may feel the same as her. And so she is convinced, her murderous intentions gone with the hopes…
  • Involving the Moon and Star more is easy enough. Just have scenes with characters that are under the guidance of the Star or Moon. Plenty of room for interesting conflict with those characters - they could be in danger, be asking something difficu…
  • Posted By: rugrsiAt this point everything described that’s been crossed out never happened. I have to describe something significantly different. The conflict phrases are there for you to hit back, so to speak, if your opponent goes too far. Depe…
  • Oh, and don't forget about the Inn scene. If writer's block is messing you up, you can always change Ilsa's actions to something easier to write. (Though I like the seduction idea)
  • I'd vote yes if one can dish out some convincing narrative. I'm not firm in my belief though, so I could be swayed by a convincing argument. My only hesitation right now is that the person (Wanda or Ilsa in case) who is being bad-mouthed (so to s…
  • If Ilsa does attack Andreas, then he'll certainly call upon Sigismund, so he might not be out of that scene yet....
  • The spirits of the dead are full of trickery, and though Andreas is sure that what the spirit felt was honest - such rage and anger might be clouded by the sorrow of death and hatred of the living. Andreas smiles slightly at the inn-keeper. "Yes, …
  • Just in case anyone's reading this, we found our fourth and have begun our game at: rpgcrossroads.net
  • Thanks Simon, this should really help.
  • I see what you're saying YP. I think I wasn't pushing hard enough. We can do a scene with Ilsa if you have something you want to push. I'm interested in a scene where Ilsa goes after Andreas, or a scene with Andreas and Wanda.
  • Posted By: yellowparisI'm curious - why are you reluctant to deal dice damage? It is a integral part of the game, and the main pacing mechanism. Just seemed too soon in the game, plus Andreas wasn't attempting to harm Sigismund, so it seemed a bit …
  • Sensing the departure of the spirit, Andreas rises from his seat. He mouths the spirit's name, but gives no voice to his speech. And a smile grows upon his features. He would, by chance of his birth, not be a handsome man, nor one of repulsive fe…
  • By the way, while Andreas might be able to make puppets of the other spirits, I don't think anything in the game should make a puppet of a PC. You shouldn't be able to de-protagonize a protagonist. The only way Andreas could make a puppet of Sig, …
  • What if, pursuing the later option, for the former is much to Andreas' detriment, not only can Andreas call Sigismund by name without the aid of blood if it so matches the spirit's desires, but if he has the right blood he can summon, but not bind, …
  • Sorry for my absence of late. I've been very distracted. I'm migrating the other PbP forum that I'm on (and help run). Email notifications sure would be useful here though... I'd like to keep magic a bit fuzzy. Writing lots of specific rules ta…
  • Valvorik, Just to clarify because the negotiation was very in-character. So, your proposing giving on the future conflict of binding and giving Andreas insight into Sig's appearance and desires in exchange for the lack of a loss of Grace? Sounds …
  • I want to make sure I understand. Valvorik can negotiate to avoid dice damage, but not to avoid the summoning name thing that I narrated, right?
  • I specifically left out "bind Sigismund" so that it could be a future conflict or such. I knew I could push harder, but I didn't want to. So, Valvorik, you're proposing that if Andreas gets the blood, then he can bind Sigismund without conflict? …
