How public is Ambages, by the way? Would he be recognizable to most of the island? Same goes for the rest of the peers and gentry.

The Gentry are very public. They're well know philanthropists.  The same goes for Ambages, considering he's a mayor member of the Gentry.

 

I'm not so sure about the other Peers. EW hasn't elaborated on them very much.

Actually, there are only two peers left, both of which have been developed thoroughly by EW, if I remember correctly.

I just "love" it when I'm the second-to-last post on a page before it turns during a conversation irrelevant to what I asked, so when the page turns people either forget what I said due to the new conversation or end up not seeing it. It's kinda funny actually. =P

Behind this sucky post count, a writer and hardcore RPer lies in wait of a reason to post...

For those who will likely ask when reading some of my non-RP posts: for me, "*shot*' = "I know that what I said was something stupid and I am acknowledging this before people think I'm serious."

Oh yeah, and my current BZPRPG character bio can be found here.

"Why...me? Oh yeah, that's right. I'm weak. I'm of a minority, a minority of people with a common trait: we hear too much. And what we're supposed to hear hurts to hear. When I'm alone in a silent room, I can hear a pebble dropping from a mile away. I can hear a motor boat being started up several yards off the coast. A whisper from outside, I can hear as if they were talking right at me. An explosion in another koro, I hear as if it's just outside. Sounds useful, right?"
"Wrong."
"It's a curse, if you ask me. The same pen dropping inside this aforementioned silent room would ring in my ears. If I stood by the same motor, I'd get a headache. The same whisper would ring in my ear like two metal beams being slammed together in front of my face. The same explosion would render me deaf for years...thank the Spirit I thought of getting me something to dampen the noise, or I'd end up like the rest of my kind..."

How public is Ambages, by the way? Would he be recognizable to most of the island? Same goes for the rest of the peers and gentry.

He's not very well known outside of his very small social community. If your character knew anything about architecture, chances are Ambages' name was dropped somewhere. But otherwise, he's not even well-known in Ko-Koro, where he lives. You could have found this out by looking at his profile, though.

 

 

The Gentry are very public. They're well know philanthropists.  The same goes for Ambages, considering he's a major member of the Gentry.

While the Gentry are rather public, that doesn't mean their members are public by virtue.

 

 

Ah, I remember one of them dying, but not both of them. Aurelia isn't famous IC to my knowledge, is she?  

Two of the four have ceased from gameplay. They were NPCs. Aurelia isn't very well known since she works behind the scenes to control things. Her major plot action was the salvation and renovation of Xa-Koro, so I imagine some rumours of her existence have reached the mainland since the success story of her town, but other than that, no, I don't think she's well known. In fact, it wouldn't seem wrong to say that some rumours of her death in the cataclysm of Xa-Koro are about.

 True, but I hate having to dig through the profile pages. It'd be nice if everyone were on the Wiki, that way you could just search and find them.

It's actually quite easier to use the profile topic. It's official, and you can just search the character name or check the profiles of the player.

We have explained this to you several times: In the game there is an idea called BZPRPG time. Time is whatever people say it is relative their characters. That's essentially it. If a character says it is sunny and midday, then it is, even if the person in the same wahi says that it is dinnertime and the sun has set.

Ah yes, my free time.

 

Created through doing lots of homework, and with Australian schools having four terms of about 8 weeks with 2 week holidays between each term, along with a longer one between the fourth term of one year and the first of the next.

 

In other news, your plot seems suspiciously Mark Bearer-ish.

Unless someone like Salvinn is involved in that plot, cause otherwise their mind won't get fixed.

 

Who am I kidding there's no one like Salvinn.

I don't see how Marks are like Sentient Masks. Mark Bearers showed up on the island with Marks and did a bunch of stuff. Then the plot ended with the loss of the Marks, and boom. As if nothing ever happened. (Aside from those guys who kept their Marks.)

 

Now JL's plot has Sentient Masks, which are a lot more self-aware than instinctive, parasitic Marks...and it begins with someone hitting a load of people in the head.

 

Only similarity is a handful of people get a staff-approved character development tool/cool thingy.

I know it might seem odd, but halfway through this post, I realized how much I like Tuara's character, and that coupled with the emotions in the post, and the incredibly already emotional music I was listening to, I almost started crying in the process of writing.Not sure what's happening to me, but it makes me proud of this post.

I have something I need to be clear on.

 

As far as I understand, this RPG undergoes a series of routine "reeboots", even more so than DC ever does.

 

Does it, like, reboot every year, and we just start with a clean slate from there, with new characters and staff plots and whatnot?

Not quite.There have been exactly two reboots. One because the story had grown too large, the other because of a massive down time.The setting often changes in some way at the end of a year, but you usually can carry characters over.

Dunno I think the story will end in 2013 (banners and av's from staff) and I hope our chars may then help to save Mata Nui that would be awesome
