Hmm. Is that too soon. It's been up for . . . oh, it's only been 4 days, and the first two don't really count. Maybe give it till this Saturday? Help stir up the creative juices. :)

Aye.
Having said that, I guess it's up to the two skippers... er.. I mean Ringleaders, to decide when is suitable.
We both have quite large posse's now, may dilute the intimacy/fun of the overall thing if too many people get involved.
As terrible as that is to say, the more the merrier is something I usually agree with. But maybe that's why we got in trouble for being too clique the first time round?
I dunno, Skip. A deadline sounds reasonable enough.

I think sooner is better than later in terms of getting moving. Zael's right about our group getting pretty sizable (I think we probably have enough people to make this a real campaign), and I'd worry about interest and initiative stagnating if we continue to just wait here.

Other than that, it's up to C. Hill. :)

Ugh. Power. I don't like it. ;)

But yeah, I think it would be a good idea to get the ball rolling. How about 9 PM GMT for August 1? Gives people tomorrow to wrap things in order and for anybody new to jump in if they want. But I do like the current party as it stands.

Any objections? Can we all meet around that time for a good push? And any suggestions?

I'm pretty sure at some point the two groups will intersect and that's when it will get really interesting.
I will expand your TBR pile.

Apologies for my Ye Olde English.

Do I establish my character here, or just continue the story in the recruitment thread?

Well, this thread is technically here to let people know what you have planned, so if you wanted to you could give us a brief of what your character can and can't do (if you've thought that far ahead) - but for the most part we just wing it, allowing each other to... I wanna say manipulate but that seems rather harsh ;)... use one another's characters to further their own character's story/the story as a whole.

But yeah, just jump in to whoever's crew you want.
For reference - Chill's group seems to be on the side of light and good.
Whereas Charlemagne's group fight's for gold and... well... gold.

I'm going to go with Chill's group...but I haven't found the perfect time for a perfect entrance. So I'll wait.

Ha!
Shots fired.

EDIT: Congrats on the 2 G's, Doc :) And Yuan, I think your moment to shine is upon us...

Also, can anyone tell me why I have 100 million credits in my bank? Not that I'm complaining...  ;D
