Hi, Powers That Screw You, Soulbrother, Angelushater, Connorkillsme, and a few others here.

Sorry about the utter lack of posting. I'm afraid it's not going to end any time soon. I lost my job last week and am in the process of moving back to Alaska/sorting out what I'm going to do with 8 years' worth of accumulated possessions that I can't take with me. I should be settled in there early in June and hope to be back to you then.

Anyway, just wanted to tell you.

So, who's still with me?
Things seem to have slowed down so much that I just want to take a head count and know who's still in the game.

Also, if anyone has any different ideas about how to do the combat we're about to get into, if you just want to tell the rule system to go hang and write it out or if you want to give it a go, I'd like to know that, too.

Hey guys ..

Sorry to do this so soon, but it is spring break! I will be going away tomorrow morning until Thursday morning. We're going to visit some friends and alas, I won't have access to the computer. Therefore, any threads my precious Cordy is in are kinda going to be slow in the responses from her. I promise though, when I get back Thursday, checking my mail/tags will be one of the first things that I do!

Try not to miss Cordy or me too much. = ) I know it will be hard. And you know the drill. If you need Cordy somewhere, feel free to move her or whatever. Just you know, don't kill her or any of that mean and nasty stuff. Cause then I'd cry. : (

Much love!

Sorry for the delay, everyone.
Was on vacation for a period there and wasn't able to update adequately.

Ok, so, in a table-top game, we'd be in combat rounds now. So here's how we make this work in a LJ forum:

I rolled initiative for everyone in the scene and here are the results:

Angel: 23 (What can I say, folks? Vampire reflexes and all.)
Lorne: 12
Wesley: 10
Cordelia: 8
Doyle: 6
Bad Guys: 6

So, we're going to tell in this comment, in order from lowest number to highest, what you're going to try to do this round. (The idea being that those who won the initiative are able to see what everyone's about to do and then get to act before them.) Just describe what you're trying to do. We'll actually write out what happens in the comm.

Oh, each comment is going to be 3 seconds of real-time, game wise. So the dialogue should be kept short. In fact, I'm enforcing a rule from another game I used to play: If your dialogue in a combat turn is more than 20 words, you're too busy talking to take an action.

So, Doyle first, and since the bad guys rolled the same number, what Doyle does and they do are simultaneous. Here's what they're doing at the lowest initiative:

The thug by the door levels his gun to cover Doyle and Angel as the other is moving toward Cordelia with his gun drawn. Griff tilts his head back as if to say "C'mon, Doyle, let's leave before anyone else has to get hurt."

((Over to Doyle.))

Hey, we won something!

First award First award

Knew it'd happen soon enough. I have a lot of confidence in you all.

State of the Comm Address.
Hey, all. Figured I'd take full advantage of the whole paidness thing and give a status report as a phonepost on my personal journal. Check it out.

Oi, lost_my_shanshu!
I know you've been having problems with the servers lately, but your scene hasn't moved for almost two weeks now. If I don't get a post by the time I get home tonight (about 5pm PST), I'm going to have to let soulbrother step in.

You're not being kicked out or anything, don't get me wrong, we just need to get things going here, and you're welcome to step back in once the server issues are taken care of.

Hello darlings. = )

I just wanted to let ya'll know that I, Patty, aka Cordy will be going away this weekend from Friday night until Monday morning. I hate to go in the midst of all these open threads, but there's nothing I can do. Family matters.

But I promise that as soon as I return, I will get with the posty. I'm trying to get with the posty tonight and do as much as I can now. But feel free to move my Cordy around wherever you need her. Just don't kill her. Cause then I'd cry. = )

I'll see you all Monday!!

Sorry if any posts/responses responses to Cordy are slow. The flu bug has decided to knock me out. I've been sick since Wednesday and I'm slowly recovering.

I promise any posts or anything made to Cordy will be made up soonly. I'm finally starting to feel better. Thanks for your patience!

Brother, Can You Spare A Paid Account?
(x-posting to personal journal and ministersofooc.)

For purely comm-enhancing reasons, I need to upgrade this account to a paid account.

Sadly, as a direct result of this past weekend being my first with a check card and money in my account, I ONLY have $5 in my account right now.

Thus, if someone cares to pay for 2 months on this account for me, I'd be glad to return the favor on the 18th when I get paid again.

UPDATE: Nefver mind. Found a way to afford it. Mortal Paidness!!!

It's a hell of a start, it could be made into a monster if we all pull together as a team.
Hey, all. Looks like things are underway and we've got some good scenes going. (Check out Scene II for tonight's Special Guest Star.)

So, let's keep things going. In case Angel and Cordelia missed it, Wesley just entered the office, being all roguey and demon huntery.

Little change made.
I changed the model of the Border Patrol vehicle. Doesn't affect the story thus far, I don't think.

Aaaand we have an Angel.
Say hello to lost_my_shanshu.

So, all looks ready to launch on Friday night about 6 PM PST.

If everyone reading could just message me when you have a moment, I've got some character-specific pre-game stuff to discuss with you.

Hi, my name is Alex. And I'll be playing Kate, although I've never played this kind of game before. But it sounds interesting. So, yeah, some of you know me. (I play Kate a few places on gj. But mostly you probably know me as Lilah (not_a_lie), and Darla(42) and Harmony(42).) I'm really bad at introductions. Oh, I can just say that I will probably need to be walked through this slowly for a while. Because I am clueless. And as people in this group can attest to I ask a lot of questions.

So, email: juliet42@go.com
8:10 am
It begins.
Got the first little bit of info up, in case you hadn't noticed.
