Sounds amazing. In a totally chaotic way. But it's amateurish chaotism, they can't top our professional chaos.  ;D

Hi.  Just looked at the last post dates on all the RPG threads, and none are very recent except for this one.

Is it crickets in the rest?

It is. Complications, among other things, brought it (they're all the same RPG) to a halt. If you want to start one up, you're more than welcome to, however!

And Xi, could you possibly lock those threads, considering we're probably never going to come back to them? (Aside from maybe this one.)

That was very definitely apart of the "among other things." :P Besides, I was waiting for Charlie to do it first. He had to be the real man.

Welcome to the 2015 Fantasy-Faction RPG, co-hosted by myself and the always illustrious Jmack!

We have a good bit planned for what's to come, and promise we'll actually see this one through. Time is set for 4 weeks starting today (Sunday 24th) to begin with, and each week'll have its own adventure. Right now, pick a side. Make a nice entrance. Don't worry, both'll be great. (Though mine might be better.) Past knowledge of the 2 former RPGs on here is not necessary. Might even put up a brief overview for anybody interested, seeing as I'll be make some references to them, but  as I said, not necessary.

Anyway, rules are on the first post of this thread. I might write up some edited version for later, but all you really need to know is have fun, crack jokes, and go with the flow. This is supposed to be a way to let off some steam and enjoy life. Possibly celebrate FF's 100K posts or something. First one actually got me into becoming a regular on this site, so if that sways you, you're more than welcome in our motley crew.

So without any further ado, Up Helly Aah!

Let's ride!

You should do a new who is who topic with backgrounds on your characters and items there may or may not carry 
According to some,* heroic deaths are admirable things

* Generally those who don't have to do it.Politicians and writers spring to mind

I think you decide on your character and what they have and don't have. I put some hints in my thread about character slots I'd like to fill. In addition, I'll be PM'ing my crew with (hopefully) fun ideas once I see what folks have chosen.

But I do think Chill is planning a Who is Who thread to capture what folks decide on.

Who's Who is up. And with Scarlet (just one T) jumping between, we might need it now.  ;)

May I just say you write too much for your own good, Jmack... you're scaring people off!
It needs to be short and sweet ;D

Everyone, look, I'm not a 'writer', so I just write. Whatever looks funny at the time - and gawd knows my brain feels foggy most of the time, hehe. So if *I* can do it, so can you.
Go on, go aaaaaawwwwwwnnnnn ;D


Henry, you seem to be helping Jmack :P

(and by the way, I think I'll stop liking posts here... I like them all, so it's kinda pointless, hehe - I'll save them for the other forum places)

I guess you're right.  :-[
I think of it too much as story.
So from now on, even this post will be shrtr.  ;D

I'm in.
Am I required to do the Whose Who thing? Because I kind of want to remain mysterious. At least for a time.

You could do like Idlewilder did in the last, but if you don't want to THATS fine. Mystery is great!

EDIT: Stupid phone. Stop randomly capitalizing. (But I will leave it, cos that's fun.)
