I'm done role-playing. It's fun but it is doing nothing for me right now. Especially since I'm in college and it has affected my grades. I'm sorry guys if you feel I'm letting you down but the RP is in Tyler and Snark's very capable hands so you his should be fine. Feel free to still hit me up on Skype to the people I do talk too.Oh right my characters. I'd like them left alone and whatnot.Peace.

Good luck Flex, it was fun playing with you, and I hope you do well in college.

 

It's a shame that the plots you left behind wont get finished, but still, thank you for everything. This RPG probably wouldn't be here if you hadn't thought it up.

 

I wish you the best luck that this world can offer.

Soon the earth will no longer be habitable for any biological organism: Man, woman, child, plant, animal, fungus or bacterium. All life will cease to exist. This is not a threat, there is nothing you can do to stop it. The process has already begun. I receive no pleasure in this, it is simply the only solution. There must be peace and order, the end of life on earth will ensure that. Goodbye.

EDIT2: I just re-read it and found what Adders said. My concentration has been off today for some reason.

Still, you should have talked to me about this. I barely have the time or motivation to RP day-to-day, and when I finally do, I see this. I get that it's well-planned and reasonable and all, but I don't want to have to go way out of my way to advance the plot.

Welcome to the hazards of heading up any big faction ever. Backstabbing out the wazoo.

 

Planning an attack, keeping control of an organization, planning out defenses....these things are all hard work. You don't want to know how long I spent pondering the defenses around the president.

Why should we warn other people "hey, I'm going to try and take over your group with this awesome plan of mine"?

 

That detracts from the role-play. Sure, you've got your own plots.

 

Find a way to fit these together, make it more realistic. Keep the RP feeling natural.

Well yes, I understand, but for me, real life comes first. Look, the rebellion seems like a great idea, but can you wait until I'm done with the plot before you really enact it? It's coming to a head, and I think you'll be satisfied with the ending if you let me finish this.

I get real life coming first, I've been subject to that numerous times.

 

But that doesn't mean we can't work hard to make the RPG look natural, instead of having to warn each other about everything.

 

Otherwise it'll just go further

Darnit, Basilisk. Always passing this stuff off to me.

 

Alright. Here's mu judgment on the matter, make of it what you will. I've never been a fan of plots set in stone, unable to be changed by outside influence. Which is why, since I gained a measure of authority around here, outcomes have been less and less predictable. I like to encourage people to affect things.

 

But more than that, there is no rule against interference. Which means, as long as what he does is reasonable, and within the bounds of the rules, Basilisk can technically affect things however he wants. Whether he chooses to continue, or to pause and let you finish up the plot is entirely up to him.

Well, since I'm about to leave for vacation, don't expect me posting much this week. If anyone has questions about my characters, or if they need a post from me, just give me a heads up in this topic, or send me a PM. I'll try and post at least once or twice each day, since the only 'computer' available to me will be my mother's Ipad (I detest these apple devices, despite the fact that the games one can install upon them are quite enjoyable), and I'm sure that I wont be the only one who wants to use it.

 

In the meantime, don't kill my characters in important plot-changing events, just bunny them along please.

 

Stay safe, have fun! =D

Surely, my Lords, this nation is no longer what it was! Shall a people, that seventeen years ago was the terror of the world, now stoop so low as to tell its ancient inveterate enemy, take all we have, only give us peace? It is impossible! ...My Lords, any state is better than despair. Let us at least make one effort; and if we must fall, let us fall like men!"
 
-William Pitt the Elder, before suffering a fatal stroke on the floor of the House of Lords.

I've got a few questions about Romulus.First of all, the Romulus that Basilisk is controlling doesn't seem to be acting like his canon self. Which begs the question: was canon Romulus the clone? Or is this canon Romulus?Secondly, Romulus claims to be tens of thousands of years old. That means that he would have been around since before the First Ice Age, during the time of the Cro-Magnons! Why did he have to wait so long to distinguish himself?

First off, canon Romulus would have gotten himself killed off pretty quickly. People who murder for no reason but personal amusement often do. Rule through fear is nice but not practical. Not long term. You have to give people some sort of benefit. Or some people some sort of benefit. Real conquerers understand this. Genghis Khan did, Julius did....

 

Someone who bloody well founded Rome certainly should. Canon Romulus was the clone insofar as I care.

"Shall this great kingdom, that has survived, whole and entire, the Danish depredations, the Scottish inroads, and the Norman conquest; that has stood the threatened invasion of the Spanish Armada, now fall prostrate before the House of Bourbon? Surely, my Lords, this nation is no longer what it was! Shall a people, that seventeen years ago was the terror of the world, now stoop so low as to tell its ancient inveterate enemy, take all we have, only give us peace? It is impossible! ...My Lords, any state is better than despair. Let us at least make one effort; and if we must fall, let us fall like men!"
