  1. [quote name='Gavin' date='14 August 2010 - 05:07 AM' timestamp='1281787641' post='699398'] [font="Tahoma"][size="2"]Seems we're just left waiting on Anomaly and Nathan then, very curious to see who the last two deaths are going to be and what extra cards might come in to play afterwards. Josh, quick question, are we allowed have the spirits interact with one another ? For instance the Butler is going to be pretty peeved if the other ghosts start wrecking up the Manor. [/size][/font] [/quote]Yup. That's perfectly fine. - Shy
  2. Correct again! You can be as cruel as you want to our human guests as long as you don't kill them. So have at it! - Shy
  3. [quote name='CaNz' date='13 August 2010 - 12:02 PM' timestamp='1281726175' post='699348'] so are all the death cards going to be played before the new cards are dealt? [/quote] Correct! The round ends once all of the Death Cards have been played. Other cards that may have been dealt out may be saved for later rounds. People have asked me this a couple of times already, but I thought I would repeat this for the group; You can use your ghost's individual Power Card as often as you'd like, but once you attach it to a specific character it remains
  4. Six down, and at least three Death Cards to go. Who will survive? -Shy

If there's anything that needs changing Josh please let me know.[/size][/font] [/quote] You did great. I just want to remind everyone that your ghost's specific card is independent of Death Cards. Consider your ghost powers to be status ailments which can be used as often as you'd like. Characters can only be killed with Death Cards or some other similar card. It would appear we a
  8. Okay, round 2 is started and each of the players have been assigned their cards. I can tell you that [b]12[/b] cards have been dealt out, and [b]9[/b] of those are Death Cards. Everyone has at least 1 card, and the other 3 cards have been assigned randomly. There is at least 1 bonus card that can be earned by completing a certain objective: What that is I cannot tell you, but I'll let you know at the end of the round. The round ends once all of the Death Cards have been used. Other special cards such as Shield Cards or Life Cards may be saved for later rounds or used now. Let me kno

Their conversations were brief and pleasant, but few were willing to go into more detail than a simple greeting. Elyssa folded her arms, a bit of rainwater still dripping from her long gown. â??[b]Does anyone know what we are waiting for?

[quote name='Gavin' date='10 August 2010 - 05:44 AM' timestamp='1281444254' post='699189'] [font="Tahoma"][size="2"]I hate to sound like a nay-sayer so early into the game but are we sure we want to use terms like "coloured folk" and "white folk" in this ? Granted the setting is akin to the 1920s or 1930s but I have to say I'm not terribly comfortable with that kind of terminology.[/size][/font][/quote] I respect how you feel Gavin, but at the same time I feel like that language can help establish a character's p
  11. It would appear that all of our characters have entered the game, even though [b]White[/b] and [b]Nathan[/b] have yet to post at all. I don't think anyone intends to keep the game from moving forward, so here's what I'll do: White and Nathan have roughly 36 hours to make a post. From my watch that means they have until 8/11 to post, but obviously Nathan and White have their own time zones. if either or both of them fail to do so we'll move forward and I'll start handing out the various Death/Life/etc. cards. Until then everyone should feel free to post in the RPG, and ar
  12. [quote name='Sandy' date='08 August 2010 - 01:11 PM' timestamp='1281298276' post='699102'] People, if you don't start posting soon, I swear I'll introduce all the characters myself. ;P Just kidding, I just want to encourage everybody to post something. I don't think Shy is looking for Almagest-quality posts for this game, so I believe even something simple and short will suffice, if your time is constrained. ;D [/quote] We've gotten most of the characters introduced in little over 24 hours, so I'm really pleased with the response time s
  13. Okay, we're up! In this chapter every single character must be introduced within the story before the first cards are dealt out. In my post the two characters I wrote about shared a connection, but the characters you write about can be strangers or whatever. Feel free to include as many or as few characters as you would like: the sooner everyone has posted the sooner the fun begins. [b]In this round the spirits will NOT directly interact with the mortals[/b] but you can use your Power Cards now if you want. When you attach any card to a character do it like this within your post:

    Sign-ups are closed, and I just started the Backstage thread. I expect the RPG to launch within the next day or so. Thank you again to everyone for your interest so far! - Shy Edit: We're up!

However I don't have time before work to finish preparing a sign up. I will be able to do that via editing this post tomorrow evening. Provided you are still accepting applicants at that time.

  19. [center][media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_-HtEy8a04[/media][/center] No joke, I am terribly excited about this movie. I grew up on cheesy action movies and this looks like it's going to be a wonderful night at the movies. I thought the recent Rambo movie was pretty good, too, so this gives me a lot of hope. I'm also really looking forward to 'Machete,' which looks like it's going to be even campier than The Expendables, if such a thing is possible. - Shy

    Great sign-ups everyone! I'm really pleased with what has been posted so far, but of course there is room for more if someone else if more people are interested in participating. I'll leave sign-ups open for another few days, and hopefully launch the RPG sometime on [b]August 5th.[/b] A minor note about sign-ups: I'm pushing for a more timeless and fantastical feel to this story, so please try to keep any specific references to real cities or historical events out of your posts. Heaven's Cloud using the stock market is perfectly fine, though. Many countries have a stock
  21. Welcome back, Nathan! I was intending on the next post dealing with Belmonda and the gang to be their last for this particular story. If you'd like you can take the reigns! [SPOILER]Basically Natalia/The Ship are going to transport everyone else off-board, back in Anova, and disappear. Where the ship goes, and Jack's obsession with capturing it will be touched on in the next RPG.[/spoiler] Beyond that you have complete freedom to do what you want with it, and give your character a touch of closure for this particular chapter in the story. -Shy

The looming iron gates and lavish exterior are slowly fading away into oblivion, a reminder of lost providence from so long ago. Once home to the most powerful family in the land, Rosengardâ??s fate changed forever with a mysterious killing spree that took place within its walls one terrible evening. Some say the familyâ??s matriarch went mad, others say the Rosengard family fell victim to a curse, the re

I don't know how to pixelate pictures, so I just look up perler bead designs on google images and copy the ones other people have done... but it wasn't their character either, so i'm not r
