The Highlander game [21 Apr 2007|06:35pm]

droa
So I've been working on the site a metric shit-ton, because right now four people with vastly different schedules just isn't cutting it. I also redesigned the Marvel forum to be for the HL game instead (the Marvel revamp will come later), so that we can stay in touch, discuss any game stuff, post any stories and occasionally RP when we just can't get in the same room.

Nik and I had been thinking about going on a recruiting drive to get a handful of more people for the game. Those of us involved are pretty damn fabulous, if I may say so, but so few of us can't carry the entire universe. So we've signed up for AOL and have a couple of people interested.

Tami, Angie, I'd really like your thoughts on this, because I know it's been a bitch and a half to get us all together lately, and we have not been talking nearly enough.

Sky and Al, Act I (Hi Angie! ^_^)) [25 Dec 2006|12:32pm]

5 a.m, LAX, Courtyard by Marriot, Room 106

Whoever said “the older you are the less sleep you need” must have lived with Alma L’Angelle. The sun hasn’t even risen yet and while the morning traffic has long since started it had only been a mere three hours earlier that Al and Sky had tumbled into their hotel room. It had been a lovely night of binge drinking and who knows what at the airport bar, something Al had insisted on doing as she had “never gotten plastered” at a place of travel before. And now impossibly (and perhaps cruelly) Al is up, dressed and terribly coherent.

Sky, however is not, which is something Al has set herself to remedying. In a gleeful manner Al leaps upon her companion’s bed and starts jumping up and down.

“HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I know it’s not your birthday but I figure it’s a nice thing to shout in the morning! C’mon get UP. We’ve got a flight to catch!”

Just checking in. [12 Oct 2006|07:54pm]

[ mood | owww ]

I just wanted to check in with everyone and make sure that we're all still alive and kicking. With Simon having completely fallen off the face of the earth over a year ago now, and Mike being busy with life, marriage and fatherhood, not to mention everyone else's lives, well... Needless to say, we've all been busy and preoccupied.

Brat and I just wanted to do a bit of a check-in and make sure that we're all at least passably well. I'd very much like to hear from the lot of you, if only to tell us that we're lazy bitches. Tell me what's going on with you.

We've also noticed a couple of new faces. Damned if I know when they actually friended the community, but it's both flattering and strange all at once, so far be it for me to complain.

I'm going to be posting about the various games and their status(es?) this weekend alongside ze Brat, but in the meantime, here's a link to what I have thus far for the Highlander game site: The Chronicles. Currently I'm working on the Immortal pages. They still need work, of course, but it's a start. I'm thinking that we need one or two additional Watcher characters just for the sake of balance, so if there are interested parties, drop me a line.

So I realize that since the girls and I set up house, communication has become pretty pathetic on our end. Not that any of us three have ever been particularly amazing about it, but -- and forgive me from sounding egomanical here -- we three seem to be something like a cornerstone. Gabby and I haul the new people in, Nik does her thing, and bam, we have an active game. With the convenience (solely on our end) of living together, we've become distracted. And I apologize to everyone for that.

Apologies aside, is anyone opposed to us doing something about it? More specifically, would anyone be interested in resuming the Sunday calls? Certainly not every week -- I do not want to either fuck with anyone's schedule (yet) or get us overwhelmed and thus useless -- but perhaps every two weeks or thereabouts? I know that things have been poor on our end, but believe me when I say that we miss all of you. A lot.

So tell me what you think, and tell me how you might want to see us keep the channels open.

It appears that I have rediscovered my zen through Photoshoppage. I really, really want to do something for the lukoi game, but have no song-type material to associate with characters. Would any of the involved parties be able to share something? Personally, I've always found it difficult to come up with that kind of thing for this game, aside from my lone picture for Mariah and Colette.

Anyone? Anyone? Please?

Since we have effectively split the game into three pieces -- the Marvel-verse, the Hamilton-verse, and the Highlander-verse, I will be creating separate websites for all of them. Hopefully doing so will mean that the big site (now the Marvel one) will be easier to maintain, and as a result I'll be able to actually finish the flippin' thing.

However, it is simpler for me to just create the two smaller sites for the other games before I tackle that monster of a hurdle, and as a result I've been working on the Hamilton game. That means this will only be interesting to a few of you. It's called Blue Moon Rising at the moment (if you don't like the name, say something and we'll reconvene to discuss), and hopefully this week I will be adding pack information for the two New Orleans groups. Brat is working on city-specific info, and if anyone has suggestions or would like to volunteer for a writeup, hey, I won't complain. It's barely finished at the moment, as evidenced by a major lack of links, but we're getting there. Opinions would be awesome.

What we will be doing will depend on can be there. As such it's limited to two options;

1) Chimera, concentrating on the kids being held and those dealing with it on the outside. I'm sure a search/rescue party has been about and is doing all sorts of talking.

2) Second gen 'tutness in which we do general fuckery and have students make out and teachers worry about the approaching political DOOM.

If ya can make it, please drop a comment.

I'm sure you have all heard of the three harpies rumblings, yes? If not, the post below this one should explain the just of it. READ IT OR YOU SHALL PERISH.

On that note...

I am here to tell you of an RP "date" for Thursday, August 4th (It is Thursday as I have become part of a new tradition and no longer available on Wednesdays, on Wednesdays I get happily drunk at a friend's house).

What sort of RP, you ask?

Well, thats what this post is here. If you think your gonna be available make suggestions. If I receive no suggestions before Wednesday of next week Teh Pope decides on her own. You do not wish Teh Pope to decide on her own. If I have to decide on my own I promise you it will be really bad MPREG slash between dragons and their girl loving transsexual wives.

A couple of ideas to throw around would be;

Chimera, anything involving the kids in the base and those that got left behind back at the Mass Academy. (First Gen)

Xavier Institute shizzle, with the school newly opened and thriving it would be easy to cobble something together or just throw many a character out (Second Gen)

Random Immortal shit, we can do the aftermath of the Bianca SL, set maybe six months to a year after the whole mess or anything for that matter (Can span all three gens, natch)

A Proposal [25 Jul 2005|06:30pm]

djpatientzero
[ mood | crazy ]

Hey there. Slapped in the face by the evil bastard I call muse, I came up with this idea. The girls and I have counseled it over between ourselves, and we wanted to launch it at you guys for your opinions and feelings. I may be the instigator, but that doesn't mean anything really. :o)

So what's in store?
-- The lukoi and their related will be shunted off to another game entirely, set in the Laurell K Hamilton world. They don't interact with the rest of the characters outside themselves very much, and their loss will not really affect the game world. In giving them their own game, it allows us to remain true to the spirit of the environment with no weird craziness. They didn't really fit in with the Marvelverse we had going anyway.

-- The Garou are being culled down to 5 total in game (with Michael, Glory and Hank already counted in that 5). I have a lovely explanation for it, which I'll get into later.

-- Vampires: The Buffyverse ones can easily be merged with Marvelverse, being demonic and all that. Their numbers are few, the Slayer is generally a myth, everything's good. Aspen, and later Vegas, have been too played with, and I couldn't see a way of severing ties without leaving too many gaps. I've limited that kind of vampire's population, and it will be shoved into a corner into less prominence except to those who want to be involved.

-- The Immortals: They are too tied into the world, though Dora wishes they weren't, but we can't break them away from the game as a whole. As insular as they are, it's not too difficult to moosh them over to their own corner as well, putting them on the down-low unless people wanna focus on them. Their storylines will only affect them, not the game world as a whole.

-- Bastet and Corax: Numbering, what, 5 total? They are too small to really disrupt the game world, and frankly the few that we have cannot feasibly be changed into anything else, like a mutant. We're going to fiddle with it a bit more.

-- Groups such as the Order, the House, and Omni: Being that all can be found generically in comicdom, there will be no changes here.

The aim? To attempt to steer ourselves back to the game of old, more comic booky, though admittedly we've been off that path for awhile. However, these aforementioned changes will at least allow us to get back into the feeling that this game is not some patchwork of fanbases. The overall goal is to have ourselves a kind of Marvel/DC/Vertigo thing going on, with a greater emphasis on what brought us all together to begin with. Hopefully, in tinkering around, we can redevelop this game into something we can all enjoy equally, and not have it get divvied up between only a few people.

Also bandied about was the idea of one week a night being set aside for RPing. We're saying Thursday for now, but if any other day would do well, please suggest it. This journal and the board that Dora's hammering together eventually will serve as communication hubs, so we can throw together plots, schedule times for games, in a hope that we can get things done on a more consistent basis. The journal and board also gives the chance for people to RP outside of the set day, so if things need doing they don't have to wait. (Also, so people who don't have the time to spend online can at least post so RPing can be accomplished.) Other information will be made available on the board, as well as some important stuff like a necessary "Gay Pool" forum so we can mock certain people, and (hopefully) a general synopsis for each gen so people aren't "teh what?" all the time.

Future endeavors include our own karaoke bar, recruiting people if we're feeling magnaminous, and a pony for everyone. So please, feedback! Give ideas, concerns, criticisms, thinly-veiled barbs, whatever.

At any rate, the gallery's been updated with pictures from Austin's trip out to see us last September. All of my Angie&Matt&Amy trip pictures have not been scanned, and I still have to grab the digital ones Angelita took, so that gallery section will have to wait awhile longer.

On the bits of site I've been throwing about at everyone.

Brat got crazy productive and hammered out three or four different groups' worth of information last night, several of which I got around to posting. Keeping in mind that specific character pages are still not up, Gabby worked with me to finish the Garou and The Disciples info/listings. de Mort and du Vert are likewise completed, although I'd like to eventually add more information to their writeups. Later, perhaps.

I'm writing up notes on Chimera, and should have a listing for that up soon...ish. Austin, want to give me Spyder's real name for reference purposes? I'd like to discuss him with you for the sake of sometime soon.

The Clinic has info up, as does Omni, and Black Hawk and the House ought to by next week. Character listings will also be up for them by next week, I'm hoping, as right now it just hinges on hammering out involved characters with Brat. Pages I can throw up on the site with little effort will wind up being the Halfbreeds, the Hellfire Club, and Raptor. X-Factor will take a little more work, and if you suspect that any of your characters are involved with the team or school in some capacity, or if you'd like a character to be, drop me a line.

A basic template for NPC character pages. Feel free to tell me if you think it's stupid.:

Name:
Aliases:
DOB: (including place)
Occupation: (this would include a general overview plus anything that may qualify them for the job and/or any wacky skills they may need/possess)
Major Relationships: (familial or otherwise)
(Basic) Physical Description:
Personality:

That will encompass pages for a lot of characters, as we have a gazillion "important" NPCs, and I know that some characters will wind up being downgraded to this status.

And now, bed.

About the site. [24 May 2005|06:35pm]

Right now I'm working on the character listing pages, which, as I'm sure everyone knows, used to be divided into first, second and third generation (2005, 2031 and 2055 as it currently stands), the parts of the site where one would locate So-&-So's character page. I'm hammering out new designs right now, but they all hinge on getting introductory write-ups done for each group, etc.

I plan on handling the generation-based write-ups myself, if only because I have an obsessive comprehension of most of what's gone on (and also I don't want to torture anyone else like that). However, if you could all take a look at the available options under Factions & Groups (click on Characters up top, which will lead you to the menu tree), I'd appreciate it. Gabby wrote the Disciples and Garou-related information for me already, and Brat's currently working on Omni. This is what I need before I can lead to the character-specific pages, and so if you feel that something in particular strikes your fancy and that perhaps you could write for it, I'd love the help.

It is a lot of information, I know, which is why I'm asking. Certain things will be specific to only certain people -- Brat's the only person who can write for the Clinic, as an example, Mike the halfbreeds, myself Chimera, etc., but I'm hoping that there might be something which will be a little more open for everyone else. General lukoi info on what they are and how they work, as an example, rather than the background history of any of the actual packs.

Drop me a line if you have any questions.

Chuck Munroe. Second Gen [19 May 2005|05:23am]

daywalkermike
“We have enough to worry about without some kind of skip in reality.”

The voice comes from Devon Grant as he goes over some report that Charles Munroe really isn’t paying attention to. The slides and displays are shown one after another and the whole time Chuck just twirls the pen in his hand and every now and again clicks it.

“We have to keep aware of all our threats. This isn’t some kind of movie where people come in with guns blazing.”

A casual glance at his watch and Chuck seems to look to the side. He studies the finely crafted oak meeting table and the other agents about and then he sees Raine staring right at him. Lifting up in his chair, Chuck feels slightly embarrassed that someone knew he wasn’t paying attention.

Not wishing to make eye contact and knowing he sure as hell won’t watch the display, Chuck’s eyes wander about. He notices Raine’s coffee cup has a yellow smiley face and his brow furrows. It really didn’t seem professional. His being here didn’t feel professional.

“We have more to worry about then countries that are hostile and simple terrorists. This is a new age we are embarking upon. We have to push past the ignorance that some have towards Homo Superiors and even those of the occult.”

Chuck’s eyes narrow as he tries to concentrate his eyes on the mug as if something was out of place about it. He watches it still as Raine brings it up and those pouty lips sip the contents. And he still watches as she places it down right in front of her.

“This calls upon us to gather all information we can. To study what’s around us and know who we can call friend or enemy.”

And then he makes out the words “Fuck your good day” one her mug and a slight grin pulls. And while he’s grinning he notices Raine’s hand come into his trail of sight and then wave at him. Brows furrowing again, Chuck looks up to Raine and sees her eyes bulge to him as if surprised in him and then looking down to her chest and then she gives a strong point to the display.

“And if none of you have anything else coming up then I’ll close. Thank you for your time.”

Not wanting to even come close to the conversation with Raine and her cleavage, Chuck gets up first and makes a beeline to the meeting room’s door. But then a hand comes on his shoulder while his back is still turned.

“Look Raine. You got a nice pair but I wasn’t staring at them. Grant was just boring the shit out of me.”
“Was I? Maybe I should mix things up more next time Charles.”

Chuck mouths out the word “shit” then turns around and sees Devon is actually smiling. Not sure what to judge by this he waits for Devon to speak.

“Look Charles, I know you haven’t found your click around her yet but you and Raine should work more with each other.”
“I read her profile. Bitch ain’t right in the head.”
“She is now. And she’s give you a chance the least you can do is the same.”
“What chance?”
“She would have jumped across the table and slugged you one for looking at her ‘pair’ in the past.”
I wasn’t. It’s just. Okay. Fine. Can we squash this shit now?”
“Not just yet. Why haven’t you turned your report on X-Factor?”
“Cause I feel like some punk bitch like I’m ratting them out.”
“It’s like that is it?”
“Yeah. So should I turn in my decoder ring now?”
“No. I wanted you on because you know what you’re doing. You have an edge Chuck. So report what you think we need to know.”
“You on the real?”
“I am most surely on the real.”
“Okay. That’s straight.”
“Try and relax Charles. I’m not out to get you.”
“Not the first time I heard that from someone in the government or a suit.”
“You’re wearing a suit too these days.”

Before Chuck can think of a good defense, Devon just gives a smile and walk off with a slight wave.

“Who’s side am I on?”

With the request for information to be written for the factions and what not, I wrote this for The House of Secrets. I'm posting it here for you, Angie and Tami. Take a look at it, arrange bits add on to it, whateva you feel like. I figure this way we can edit and finalize a draft without cluttering mailboxes and what not.

The House of Secrets was founded over 8,000 years ago by the angel, Abuzohar. Magic was a wild, untamed thing when man was still new and so its secrets were free for anyone to take. This simply could not be and so the young angel took it upon itself to build a place where all the secrets could be kept.

The first house was built in a cave that would later become the ancient city, Petra.

As time passed and the secrets collected grew, the angel, now having taken a male form realized it could not do this alone. Two of it's holy brethern would be sent as a reprieve and for a little it worked. Still, the secrets and mysteries grew as the world and man changed, and those with the sight sought out this new place of magic.

And so the first outside keepers were drafted. The angels to handle the divine, the humans and halfings to handle earthly matters and finally the demons and lost souls to handle the evil and impure. They would choose colors to represent their sects and so the angels had the white, the humans were grey and the lost took black. Three to each sect and once they numbered nine each was sent out to found a house in a different part of the world.

Time would pass and the number of houses would grow. The orginal nine would collapse upon themselves, swallowed by their own secrets, the locations lost to even the first keepers.
