Default OOC discussion thread #2

I ask this specifically because there are some pretty action-heavy sequences coming up soon-ish. Hopefully that doesn't give too much away, but I think we all see it coming. It could take a while for action sequences to play out by PBP, and that could get frustrating for us all. Or maybe not, I don't know, so that's part of what this thread is about.

Everyone would have to be on board with it, and even if that's the case, we would still have to work out the how and when of it. We've got an East Coast-West Coast thing in play here, too, so that could end up nixing the deal. Let me know about interest, times you could do it, any preferences about how you've done it in the past, etc.

The plan would be to break out the chat stuff only when there's going to be a lot of action. Otherwise the game will proceed as it has here.

There's one major branch point, status quo or not. I'm assuming (?) that this response rules out any form of online interaction whatsoever except for the PBP & PMs that we do here (and the occasional roll of the dice).

I hate OpenRPG . . . and also, if your following the Origen and Archaelos format it also implies would be a scheduled thing . . . fantasy football drafts are about the limits of my tolerance for committing to schedules online

Though could always NPC me if Im not around, or around but not able to work up the willpower to select OpenRPG from the start menu

I'm in one chat based game now (started with OpenRPG & Maptool, went to IRc and Maptool after that first session until the 'latest' build of maptool failed to load the GM's maps*) and it's something of a time constraint. Getting a time and place mutually convenient to all players can be frustrting. It's not impossible to do but it could become more trouble than it's worth very easily.

*This is a somewhat convluted story. I'll readily tell it if anyone is interested.

OK, sounds like the nays have it so far. That's fine, although I'm curious to see how a lengthy combat will flow in PBP format. I suppose by lengthy I mean long compared to the combat scenes that have happened so far, but maybe it won't be all that long in number of rounds.

I had to quote this because my sensei would smack me if I didn't.

I think you are referring to zenkutsu dachi, or a front stance. If you want something a little more like film martial arts, go for kiba dachi, or the cat stance.

OOc: seem to be coming down with something cold/flue related. The confrontation with the Assamite may have to take a while.

No worries. There's a potentially endless string of confrontations between Jocelin and umbral baddies.

Considering she has 7 agg damage on her I think the endless part might be rather one sided
