      Hey there.

      I was wondering if we only get one character. And if we're allowed more than one do we use our same account to post? And I'm not sure if it was covered, as I haven't given the info a deep reading yet, but if and when a char dies, is it final death?

      I skimmed over some of the write ups and I see that you can join as anything you want to be. What worries me is that soemone will come along and create this ultra untouchable character right from the get go. That doesn't sit well with me especially if other rpers have worked and fought hard over time to give their character depth.

      Could there be levels of advancement? Like at the star wars rp I just left, a newb had to join a faction (there were many) but mostly they divided to Jedi or Sith. A new char had to find a master and train as a padawan or sith apprentice for about 3 months. From there they had to create their own weapon and go through trials to get Knighted or Lorded. From that point on they further their char development, take on padawans or apprentices of their own and take part in modded duels during the boardwide battles. When ready they had to seek out someone of their order to adminsiter the Master trials. There were councils for each order that were headed by the supreme leader of each.

      After all that I'm just trying to say that that system kept new characters in line, kept them from busting onto the scene and claiming they were the next Darth Vader or Yoda right off the bat. Will there be something similar here? I'm not saying it needs to be as elaborate as the set up i mentioned above, but I think some sort of advancement system might work. It gives a bit of structure to the rp. But that's just my two cents.

      No, you can have multiple characters, and if one dies, you are revived the next day. I will be personally reviewing each character, giving my approval, and making sure no one decides that they can go uber. Besides, it's really the quality of writing rather then power. I don't think I could really implement something like that in this, it isn't a individual RP, it's a place to RP. If you have any suggestions, please tell.

      I'm more for the writing aspect of forum rp too, but there will be some who are in it just to whup some ass and will try to do so by any means possible.

      So there'll be no cap on any powers or strength? Say someone can manipulate elements, wouldn't it be better to have them start out on a basic level and progress to more elaborate powers down the line. Sort of an evolution. I mean, if someone comes in powered up to the teeth.. where's there to go from there, really? I'd like to see some struggle and progression as a character develops.

      I'm not trying to turn this into the rp I just left. If I wanted to rp strictly that way I'd go back to that forum. What I'd like to see though is some sort of system in place that would give chars something to strive toward in the long run. I'm up for rp but I need to know that somewhere down the line there is a possible grander part for my character to play.

      I'm here, though I don't have a character yet.

      This is a private forum right?

      I will be limiting powers, especially magical abilites.

      I may implement what you said. Maybe Squall and you can make some type of opposing factions, with opposing ideals? Let them progress from a simple recruit to a general? It would go perfect with my current RP.

      I'm looking forward to this, although I'm on the same field as Vex here, and am more interested in the storyline aspect of this RP. Do you have any ideas about the overarching story BD? Or can we just start throwing out ideas.

      I'm thinking of something typical for starters, typical evil villian tries to take over AA. We can always make more reaching and deep arches, however.

      I'm not here to be a RP Nazi. If you want something that involves the forum, go ahead.

      I don't want to sound like a broken record here..... but to get interest in this forum it needs to be opened up. 7 people don't make a RP forum.

      Is there any reason that the permissions are blocked off for here anyways? Are you afraid of vandalism?

      Asher is. We have more than 7, but they just haven't posted.

      I'm still watching the kinks get worked out (and contributing, when I can) before deciding to dive right in.

      Present and accounted for.

      Thanks for re-posting "Central Time," Squall! I liked that one I'll try to post in it when I have some free time and be active with new RPs or whatnot. I need to get myself back into creative shape!
