Title: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Myitt on November 10, 2010, 11:31:34 PM
Here we go, guys!  Consider this the place to make any and all out of character (OOC) comments from the Galaxy's Edge Space Bar thread.

A few important rules to help the gaming process along in the GESB:

-New players will please limit themselves to one character; this will aid in proper character development and prevent overcrowding.
-Experienced players will please limit themselves to three characters.  Experience is determined by length of time in the roleplay, as well as general roleplay etiquette, and must be cleared by me, Terenia, Marie, Shenmue or Ossanlin.
-No character sheet is required, simply think of a character with a strong background and rationale for being in a multidimensional crossroads at a bar in space.
-ORIGINAL CHARACTERS ONLY.  Characters can have interactions with canon Animorphs characters, but keep it limited and try to make it as off-screen as you can.  This place is about developing your own character, then giving it a reason to want to be far away from work/life/school/the military/accidentally popped up here for some bizarre Bermuda triangle reason.
-Please try to post in the third person narrative.
-We really, REALLY appreciate decent grammar, spelling, and punctuation along with respectable post length...this includes complete thoughts and sentences.  It's not that hard, people!  Let us know in here if you have any questions, we have an English teacher and four or five other fairly loopy grammar nuts around here.
-Avoid one-liners--try to make your posts as meaty as you can without them becoming unwieldy. 
-PLEASE make the effort to read previous posts that pertain to your characters actions, it helps avoid confusion.
-Let new players know of our symbology usage:  ((Out of Character thoughts within the RPG (OOC), but only when absolutely necessary--most should go in here.))  <Thought-speech>  <<Private thought-speech>>  "Audible speech," she asked politely.
-Limit OOC conversations to OOC thread, please!
-If a storyline splits off from the GESB and leaves the little planetoid the GESB is situated on, PLEASE create your own, new thread for that spinoff.  Feel free to use the terms "GESB: _____" with the blank filled in by a description of the spinoff.  But otherwise, it detracts from the events at the actual bar locality itself. 


GESB Danger Signs

You Might Be Doing It Wrong If...

1- Your characters interact with each other more than other players
2- You crack more bones than jokes
3- You tell us more about your wicked sweet armor or special space powers than you do about what kind of drinks you like, things you say, things you've done
4- You use video game/anime art to describe your character rather than words
5- u abuze teh 3nglish langwage- bad spelling, text speak, bad grammar, etc.
6- You tell people your attack hits rather than letting them tell you if it hit them -- this is called powergaming and it's NOT tolerated.  Everybody deserves the chance to determine whether their character gets hit with an attack, and we don't use a numeric system. 

An example:

NOT OKAY:  "Bob throws a knife and it hits his enemy.  He laughs as it sinks into his enemy's neck and blood spills everywhere."

GREAT!: "Bob throws a knife at his enemy, hoping it will hit, but the angle was difficult."

-Another example of powergaming is making your character automatically know what you, the writer, knows about another character.  For example, walking up to a Controller and knowing right away that it is a Yeerk.  Unless your character has x-ray vision or an insanely good sense of smell (even then, I'm not so sure it'd be obvious...) then remember you are playing a role.  You are not omniscient.
-Don't make your characters all-knowing or all-powerful!  Being able to manipulate energy so that no attack can hit you is also powergaming, and excessive abuse will get you thrown out.  It just ruins the fun for everybody.

Below is one interpretation of the Space Bar, but this is a strange place, with strange, shifting attributes.  Make it your own, before it makes you its own.

Thanks guys, have a fun and productive time here at the GESB :)

Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Shenmue654 on November 11, 2010, 08:37:15 AM
Right, so...

(1). I'm going with the assumption that Mar perceives the Bar as the abode of an otherworldly creature. Possibly a Highest like himself. This is subtly implied by what the Bartender pulls on Myitt much earlier in the story, the lack of Time in this place, and the fact that rarely anyone leaves. Anyone else is up for any other interpretations of the facts they want, considering it's just the background for the story. XP

(2). I'm a little worried about Ossanlin. Even if we manage to get him out of the freeze, he will die. I mean his wounds really suck. XD And Ossanlin is Oss' only character. And frankly he brings a very interesting perspective to the table. Can anyone think of a way to save him? :p
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: RAFrukh on November 11, 2010, 09:21:29 AM
Haha, the thread itself is very much OOC posts.

The GESB OOC thread is mostly comments on the relief this thread brings them :P

As for the above's 2nd question: I just got here, but I haz a suggestion. You got a weapon? Melt it. XD

You know, originally the GESB wasn't filled with THIS many OOC posts ;)

Scinlao, in response to your question about the banner, it was kinda made for people who were in the old school Kimmeree's Anichats on another website--plus it says "veteran", you've got to earn your stripes first! ;D  Maybe there should be a GESB Cadet banner?  I don't even know who made the existing one, but maybe someone can throw one together. 

Someone besides me, because mine will end up looking like a very bad MS Paint job *cough-see my existing Myitt banner-cough*

Hmmm... would anyone on Gaz's crew think it crazy if I brought in a bad guy who actually did use a time bomb on Desmond's Ship? (or really, a Biostasis Weapon) That would explain why everyone on his ship is frozen, but the few of us on the shuttle would be fine... maybe we can run in and stop him? I think I'd like being a bad guy... What do you think, Mythica?

Post by: Chad32 on November 11, 2010, 11:23:59 AM
I dislike having my character be stuck because of one RPer, and I'm pretty sure the one using Parker would feel the same sooner or later. This is supposed to be Gaz's show, though.

Just for clarification: Temrash pulled his weapon, but isn't aiming it at Terenia.

I can't imagine Sukohn being happy that Tamora would switch sides like that. He could have just handed her over and left, but he was under the impression that she was loyal. Poor guy. Now he's likely to die for nothing.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Bear on November 11, 2010, 05:41:30 PM
Hey, would it be totally absurd if I had my two guys repair some of the broken ships? I'd somehow make it logical, but I don't want to head that way if they're all messed up beyond repair.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: KitsuneMarie on November 11, 2010, 05:52:34 PM
Elayne is planning on starting repairs on her ship in a few posts, if the conversation with Mar goes as it could. She could probably use a little help, or company. Tora's ship is also in a bad way, but it's so far gone, she's probably just going to destroy it.

Edit: Jessi, I forgot Terenia was still in Andalite form. I modified my earlier post.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Terenia on November 11, 2010, 06:52:30 PM
hehe, yeah, I figured. :) Thanks hun.

Chad, she doesn't view it as being disloyal. She's loyal to her Yeerk, not to the Empire. Remember, my twins (Terenia and Tamora) both suffer from psychological disorders. Tamora suffers from severe separation anxiety and a dependent personality disorder, whereas Terenia suffers from schizophrenia, bipolar mood swings and both a Histrionic and Paranoid personality disorder. She also has borderline DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder).

My point: my characters actions may not make sense to other writers, but trust me when I say that they make sense to the characters. There is a completely "rational" train of thought in each one of their brains.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion

That's all fine. I was just making an aside remark.

Remember guys, and this is a shout-out to Gazzy as well--the goal is to have more interaction between characters played by different writers rather than lots of characters interacting with lots of characters played by one writer.  Does that make sense?  If people are getting bored or don't know what to do, then usually that means the situation has too many characters involved in general, or there isn't a quick enough round of postings to get character issues resolved.

I know, everybody has a real life ;D  Just some basic pointers that might help your side of things.  And remember to try and keep in mind what's going on in the bar in general, so things like Ossanlin's ship in orbit or whatever won't get passed by. 

In my experience, having too many characters all at once ends up with one person writing a story that's being told almost solely for their own characters, which is fantastic for a book, and a great skill--but it doesn't work so well in interactive writing like this.

Hope this helps, let us know if you have any questions!

In my opinion, if people still want to be involved in the GESB, you'd all better read the OOC post.  If we're going to have one, it's going to be just as important as the thread itself.

Ooh! Can my guys kill him off, or at least be closely involved? I feel kinda.. weird... being so excited about that, but that would be the fulfillment of my guys' lives for the past decade or more. Then I have no clue what I'd do with them, but I'll come to that later. :P

Small nitpick, Cobra:

I turned when the alien came yelling into the bar. As did John. " I've got a ship. 'You in a hurry? Follow me?" We head out the the doors at a quick walk and waited at the Traveler for the alien. When he followed we opened the hatch and went inside. We powered up the engines and weapon systems.

I don't know if Scinlao will care or not, but I know I would care if it were my character, so....you can't just say that Scinlao follows you. He has to do that of his own accord. I know it seems like the rational thing for his character to do, since he did just ask for help, but you're assuming that they made it from the bar to the ship without anything of importance happening in between. Maybe Scinlao's character changes his mind for some reason.

Bottom line: You cannot control another person's character under ANY circumstances.

I...think I understand what you're saying Cobra, and not to harp on you too much, but please try to use good grammar and...complete sentences, okay?

Terenia has a great point, it might not seem like it but writing the actions or decisions of another person's character is called "powergaming", and we don't tolerate that.  Just so you know for the future :)

Chad...I doubt it's safe to start rocking a person back and forth who has a gaping hole in his guts.

Not to mention, I don't think Yeerks can fall unconscious.  Not least of which by people glaring at them.

Please try and have a bit more of a sense of realism.  Sorry, I don't mean to pick on you or anything, I'm just trying to give you some advice on how to write a little bit better.

Thanks for understanding.

Well claxter is a Warrior having kind of a panic attack and is trying to help. Sukohn is faking being unconscious again in the hoped of the others leaving him alone. What isn't realistic?

Going to bed. I'll be back tomorrow.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Myitt on November 14, 2010, 12:29:31 AM
If he is a warrior, he should have been trained to remain calm, or at the very least not to move a fatally injured person.  

If I were Sukohn, I'd be more concerned over my host's injuries than being left vulnerable and "unconscious" amidst my enemies.  And it's semantics, because you said Sukohn pretended to fall unconscious.  Yeerks don't sleep.

Please change it, I'm not going to belabor the point.

EDIT: It's a start...thanks Chad.

Post by: Aluminator (Kit) on November 14, 2010, 04:53:22 PM
No actual alcohol. It contains both a mild stimulant along and a mild depressant similar to alcohol, neither of which is commonly found on Earth. The net effect from a glass that size would be a decent buzz, and, depending on the person, anything from a feeling of invincibility to the sensation that they understand everything to simply an increased feeling of confidence. It doesn't hit as hard as alcohol, though- it's an effect that you just sort of slide into without realizing it.

Ok, must have missed that. I'll adjust it, but the end results are going to be the same. He'll grab it from a shelf or something.

No actual alcohol. It contains both a mild stimulant along and a mild depressant similar to alcohol, neither of which is commonly found on Earth. The net effect from a glass that size would be a decent buzz, and, depending on the person, anything from a feeling of invincibility to the sensation that they understand everything to simply an increased feeling of confidence. It doesn't hit as hard as alcohol, though- it's an effect that you just sort of slide into without realizing it.

Ok cool, thankies.

lol Tara...Press 'x' to make your dreams come true!  XD

Sorry for the delay guys, had company all day today.

And Scinlao, just an FYI dude...we don't have a written rule per se, but we like RPers in the GESB to limit themselves to 2 or 3 characters at the Maximum.  And if someone's new to the bar scene (such as yourself), we generally would ask you to bring in just one character.  Two if you can manage them.  Your brothers were fine...but bringing in three more people is going way overboard for this RP.  If you want to eliminate the two brothers from the scene to bring in a different character, that's fine.  But again we really wouldn't want you to control more than one (or possibly, maybe two) character(s) for the time being.

The only person in the GESB right now with more than three characters is Gaz, and she's promised to parse her chars down to a reasonable number as well.  Like I said, just an FYI.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Bear on November 15, 2010, 01:57:46 AM
I knew what she meant, it just sounded weird though. "He'll be drunk and not know it!" "Oh thanks!"

And um... I currently have six characters in the bar... is that bad?
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Myitt on November 15, 2010, 02:02:08 AM
I agree with Ossanlin.

Two more points, guys:

Do not bring characters in, regardless of number, solely to converse with your own characters.  I'm looking at you, Scinlao.

And please...please.... don't use the word "yeerked". >.<
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Bear on November 15, 2010, 02:07:42 AM
I don't know why I did this, but the character's I have were originally Gaz's. They were probably unimportant minions, and she was most likely going to get rid of them quickly. With her permission, I took control of them, which is why I had eight (now six) people; they were a matched set. I'm hoping that will be okay... I think I can find a way to make them leave soon, though if needed.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Terenia on November 15, 2010, 05:40:27 AM
In a place like the GESB it's never too hard to find a way to kill off a few, if necessary. :)

Honestly, Warren, I haven't paid much attention to your actions in th bar because you have so many characters. I don't know who is who (plus your characters interactions have had nothing to do with mine).

Yep. Desmond is not long for this world as soon as they get the info they want out of him. Neither is another character.

The main characters I'm going to use most often again are Morgan and Gaz. Andromeda and Asda will stick around, but they'll be an as needed sort of thing. They'll spend most of their time on the ship out of sight and thus not in play.

Scinlao, John is Cobra's character, right? Unless you have been given express permission by the role player, please do not control his characters, like so:

John signaled the tactical officer.

"Wait," I said, "I have an idea!"

John, despite my brother, seemed calm, and willing to listen. This was an extremely admirable man, by any species' standards.

Also, just a small nitpick: we typically do not write from a characters' point of view (in other words, we don't say "I said"), especially when we're controlling multiple characters. Instead, we write in third person and use either the character's name or a pronoun (he, she, it). That way, we reduce confusion. Thanks for using character headers, but I do think this will help make everything more understandable. Thanks!

Post by: KitsuneMarie on November 15, 2010, 10:57:44 AM
The first person/third person thing is very small; it just makes the RP easier to understand for everyone.

Controlling others' characters is a bigger problem, though. I know I wouldn't appreciate it if someone controlled Tora or Elayne without my permission.

We're not trying to make the GESB a drag; quite the contrary! The more we all help each other improve our role playing skills, the more fun we'll all have, and the more our characters will continue to grow and develop.

Post by: Luke Skywalker (Ossanlin) on November 15, 2010, 11:03:01 AM
Honestly Warren I haven't paid much attention to your characters either as is proven by my above statement.  We would ask you to parse your characters down as well...one or two is more than enough for anyone.  We enjoy focusing on character development.  It sounds like Gaz is having her army leave soon, so your solution seems to be pretty simple...let those characters leave.  Just a suggestion.

As an example to everyone, amongst the people that more or less started this thread...

Myitt:  2 chars.  Myitt/Tara and Corliss/Michael  (we generally count controllers as one character as they are pretty much inextricably linked).
Me Ossanlin" 1 char.  Ossanlin
Terenia:  3 chars.  Terenia/Efaen, Trey, Tamora
KitMarie:  2 chars.  Tora and Elayne
Shen:  1 char.  Mar
Patty:  1 char.  Aliciania

And amongst some of the newer players...

Chad:  3 chars.  Claxter, Sukohn/Cody, Temrash/host
Parker:  3 chars. Parker, Director, and the four-armed dude (can't remember his name atm, but sounds like he's going away soon anyway.)
Al:  2 chars.  Salem and Al

~If I forgot anyone that's been around for awhile I'm sorry.

But as you can see we've reached a respectable number of pages just fine with a limited number of characters.  For example, I've been with this thread almost since the start and the most I've ever had in the bar at once is 2 chars...and for most of the time, I've had only one...and that works beautifully.  Notice that Ossanlin has a defined personality and a highly developed character.  The people of the bar know him and have meaningful interactions with him.  In this case QUALITY is highly preferred over quantity.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: KitsuneMarie on November 15, 2010, 11:09:50 AM
No reason to apologize, Mythica. You're right: there have been a lot of nitpicky OOC posts lately. I think the reason is because the GESB is more focused on character development than action--to echo part of what Ossanlin just said, and what you already know and do well. It's a different kind of role play from many, so we're all just working to mesh styles to keep the purpose of the GESB in place. Sorry if my comment irked you.

You just had to kill Fletcher off when Desmond was in Temrash's custody, didn't you? He already let Hadrin get killed in a similar fashion. Now he's going to be depressed.

I am going to phase out several (if not all) of my characters.

Know I have to choose who leaves....

What about Efaen?...Well, what about her? She seemed willing to run back to Visser Three, despite what he did to her. Unless what he did was something she was starting to enjoy. afterall, he was an Andalite controller, and she was a female Andalite. who knows what may have gone on in that torture chamber. It disgusted Claxter to think of it.

*cough* Ew.

It sounds terrible, but Fletcher wasn't really going anywhere. lol. Poor guy got the short end of the stick. But he went out heroically. Considering his past and all he felt guilty about, it's the way he would have wanted to go.

Oh, the "army" that was there isn't around anymore. They were on the CG ship which is gone now. The only army characters from there around are the ones that were claimed. Desmond will be gone soon, he was never going to be permanent. Was only brought in for character development.

Andromeda & Asda will be taking back seat. Morgan and Gaz will be the most active.

He did fade out, actually. My plans for him pretty much went down the drain when Sukohn's memories were wiped. I was planning on Sukohn blackmailing him into helping Sukohn. Plus I was going to get Sukohn to tell Temrash that the Yeerks lost.

Last I posted for Derrel, he was sitting at the bar using money he made for doing some work for the barkeep. I don't actually know what to do with him now, but if you have something in mind I can bring him back.

See, that's what happens with too many characters, or characters that aren't fleshed-out well enough. 

Slow times to happen, but the goal should be never to get completely bored with a character.  Never to have the character wonder "what to do".  If he's there, he must have a purpose, whether it's to drink or start a fight or lie down on the roof looking up at the stars, or throw firecrackers.  Imagination is fun ;D

Well, it's part of Claxter's development too. I didn't kill sukohn off just to kill him. I had Claxter kill him because he's so frustrated with things going wrong and he wants to be harsher.

If I just wanted him gone, I would have had him leave Tamora and be done with him. Instead I had him do something kind of noble to add more sympathy points for him, then had him killed off ruthlessly.

By the way, did I succeed in making Sukohn a sympathetic character for anyone?

I've got a group of soldiers right now that I'm trying to phase out (maybe keep just one though...). I might bring in a whole new character. You wanna come up with a backstory or something, Hunter? Don't feel like you have to, just a thought....
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Myitt on November 20, 2010, 03:53:30 AM
Just remember, bringing in a whole new character should only be a last resort if your original character or two aren't working out.  Sometimes characters don't mesh up with what you want them to be, but you need to think carefully about a character's motivation, personality and background before bringing him into a story or roleplay.  Make sure you want to devote time and development to that character, and don't consider him just a throw away, and you'll find yourself much more satisfied with the roleplaying experience without having to "throw away" someone or "bring someone new" in.

If it makes it any easier, Tora's real name is Ertoran. But she doesn't like to give away her Andalite-ness. Thus the nickname.

Jessi, Oss actually didn't mention Terenia in a way that Tamora could hear...it was in private thought-speech.  Though I guess Tamora, if she's smart and very aware, might guess that this "one more stop" was Terenia.  Just FYI.

Yes, he's inside a Human named Desmond. He won't be recognizable by anyone there, but you may be able to reach the conclusion that it's Temrash by the way Jagill acts. Or just ask.

Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on November 23, 2010, 10:27:45 PM
Well if you decide to let her live, Temrash is willing to let her work for him. If you really want her to die, then I don't have any say in that.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Terenia on November 23, 2010, 10:36:09 PM
Meh, it's not about what I want to happen. Of course I don't want her to die. It's about what makes most sense for the story, and what is most in character for Terenia. Unfortunately a good character tends to get away from the writer sometimes.

Regardless, I was kinda waiting to see if Myitt wanted to post first. I guess not, though, as she's been in the thread a few times today.

*sigh* I'll post in a few. :P
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on November 23, 2010, 10:38:29 PM
Do what you think is right. Though if you're thinking that Jagill wouldn't be fast enough, then just remember he's an elite veteran. I don't know how fast Efaen is, though.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Terenia on November 23, 2010, 10:39:39 PM
Unless he can move faster than the naked eye can see, I doubt he can move faster than an Andalite tail. :)


btw, Chad, I'm assuming that Jagill is going to try and push Terenia away from Tamora. That's how I'm writing my post, so if I'm wrong let me know so I can edit.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Cobra (Gymn) on November 23, 2010, 10:44:03 PM
If you want I could have Dara shoot Terenia.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on November 23, 2010, 10:44:04 PM
You could say he started moving just before Efaen did, and I do believe that if any Hork-Bajir ever has a chance at hurting an Andalite they do have to be able to move at speeds comparable to the Andalite's tail. Besides, him rushing towards her could make her flinch in surprise.

I was thinking he'd block her blade with his, but pushing is fine. Unless you think her blade should just sheer through his.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Terenia on November 23, 2010, 10:47:11 PM
Nah, I think their blades are equally strong.

This is for the best, though, really. As much as I like Tamora I'm kind of intrigued to see what will happen to Terenia if she is taken out of the picture. Posting now.

Chad, let me know if you need me to edit Jagill's bit...

BTW Cobra, and anyone else close to him, Rayker's and Lennan's concussion-guns aren't so much projectiles as much as they cause blunt-force trauma. It would be like if I threw a car at you, or a brick, or whatever, depending on the power level. Rayker's was fired as a focused beam, for maximum force, and Lennan's was set as a wide funnel, flattened out like a wall. Hopefully, y'all will either jump back or get pushed out of the way. I really don't want to kill anyone else, but if you decide you wanna be injured (or dead) be my guest....
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion

Knocked out I would say.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion

Okay, we'll say you were lucky that Rayker did manage to bring the power down a few notches. Other wise, you'd have a nice hole through your chest. Sorry about that, I tried to save you...

Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Cobra (Gymn) on November 24, 2010, 02:54:51 PM
It's okay he probably should have a hole but it will heal up right away because he is a Hork-Bajir.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on November 24, 2010, 03:20:25 PM
It would be rather anticlimactic for Dara to end up dead right before we start on his story arc, wouldn't you say? Besides, fatal to a Hork isn't the same as fatal to a Human.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Bear on November 24, 2010, 03:25:06 PM
*thinks* Yeah, I guess it would be harder to kill him than a human, but it could still cause some serious (probably even life-threatening) trauma on full power.

And yes, I'd hoped he didn't die.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Cobra (Gymn) on November 24, 2010, 03:35:10 PM
It hit him in the side of the chest not straight on. He did use to be a bodyguard of Visser Three so he's fast and strong.

Well, it would depend on exactly how hard it was. I'd say you got some major bruising, and a cracked rib at the least. I pretty much just launched a fridge at you (maybe something smaller), and it all landed on a spot the size of a golf ball on your chest. You decide how long it takes to heal...

Oh man. O__O;  :'(

This is like...some of the saddest stuff we've ever had go on in this Bar. I mean seriously when I saw what state Terenia was in I almost felt like cracking up. Which...

...unfortunately has its benefits. It means that Mar is able to remember himself in the face of such agony. This is the kind of world the guy normally lives in every day. His desire for that level of pain in a mortal is actually greater than his desire for the mortal's soul. It proves his point better. Which is like acid to write, but still.

But oh god, poor Terenia! D: D: I hope someone'll stop her somehow. Seeing as we need her to stick around the Bar so Terenia will have a character...

Hey people. I didn't read all of this so I got a question. Do we need to make a sign up sheet for any new character if we already have one in the bar?
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Myitt on November 26, 2010, 11:47:46 PM
No signup sheet is necessary, just make sure that you REALLY need this second character.  It's very, very highly recommended that newcomers to the bar have only one character at a time, to allow proper character development and dialogue flow.  Keep that in mind.

Well, consider yourself fairly warned.  It's also common sense--it's hard to develop a character, let alone six at once.

Post by: Luke Skywalker (Ossanlin) on November 27, 2010, 02:19:47 PM
I wonder if a short "rule" page wouldn't be a bad idea in the OOC thread here at the start.  I know there are some rules set up at the start of the actual GESB thread, but most people will probably look here first.  I know we don't like to say we have rules...so we could just say that it's like the Pirate's Code...really more just guidelines.  :p

Besides the original page in the GESB main thread doesn't mention our preferred character limitation.  Maybe it wouldn't be so bad to add a little list of things we expect of those who join the thread here too?  I mean, it couldn't hurt...  Just an idea. 

You know, limit new players to one character,
Limit experienced players to three characters, 
Ask people to post in 3rd person narrative,
Request decent grammar, spelling, and punctuation along with respectable post length...this includes complete thoughts and sentences,   
Let new players know of our symbology usage...  ((OOC))  <Thought-speech>  <<Private thought-speech>>  "Audible speech" ...
Limit OOC conversations to OOC thread,
all the other stuff we've mentioned before...etc.

We don't mind helping people to learn right?  Well I would say posting these guidelines in an easily findable location would be a good start.  Just my two cents.  *shrug*

Post by: Shenmue654 on November 28, 2010, 10:24:12 AM
Hmm. The problem we're having is that there really are a whole lot of unwritten rules with the GESB. This is because the experienced players think of them as the "RP rules of the road" and never mention them. There are a couple people on here who have been doing character-based Roleplay for a dozen years and thus have unofficially developed these.

And hell, there even seem to be unrelated syntax rules in the GESB. XP

I'd be willing though to post an entire list for anyone who needs the info. That way the RP can go along at a regular pace and we can all have a great Roleplay. But...if you need to break them for awesome purposes, well....they're like the Pirate Code. XDXD;;;
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Terenia on November 28, 2010, 10:45:40 AM

I also added a couple points on no character sheet being required, since that's been a common question; and, importantly original characters only.

EDIT:

Also guys, please keep in mind: When a roleplay storyline leaves the bar, as occasionally happens and is totally fine, PLEASE have one of the parties involved take the initiative to start a new thread for that storyline, as it is no longer "at" the GESB. 

Putting this into the official rules.  Thanks.

Hi Gumby.  The state of humanity all depends on where your character is coming from.  The GESB is a sort of dimensional crossroads.  However, most characters right now come from the Animorphs universe, still embroiled in the Yeerk-Andalite war.

Great, Gumby!  Welcome, I hope you like the bar :)  Just remember, it can be a bit unwieldy to have twelve faceless marine characters all at once.  I know it's hard to pilot a big ship with just one person, but for now, keep your attention on Fisher.  Also, keep in mind that if someone attacked Fisher, he'd probably have eleven other guys helping, automatically making a fight pretty lopsided.

Chad, please remember to post a bit of description, especially when talking to a newcomer to the bar. You forgot thought-speak brackets, so I think Gumby was under the assumption that Claxter was a human. Otherwise there'd probably be a bit of a different reaction from his character.

Unless you're in human morph....in which case disregard my silliness. :)

I really hope Mar can talk Ossanlin out of taking his own life, although I know Luke would never let that happen. ;D If he doesn't manage it, then someone else will.

And poor Terenia. We feel for you in regards to having to kill off Tamora. I liked Joanne and Keshin so much I didn't have the heart to murder them. )=  Both them and Mar have been around for years. Keshin's actually the oldest.

Oh yeah, and if this isn't in the Rules thread already:

-It isn't impossible to create powerful characters in the GESB. Ossanlin is a seriously powerful dude, and he's also extremely fleshed-out and believable. However, if you're going to create someone with a huge advantage than there must be equally potent disadvantages. This is so that they can fight the other characters and potentially lose. For instance:

-Mar, as characters go, is quite strong. This is because of what he represents and because having him completely powerless is boring. :P However, I have limited what he's capable of doing to abilities that interact with something that already exists. I.E. Himself or other objects. I have also made using these abilities exhausting for him, and made it so that he'd pretty much kill himself if he tries anything crazier. Killing him will also effectively kick him out of the Bar for the rest of the story.

Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on November 30, 2010, 09:28:03 AM
Temrash might be able to. Though it would include insulting him. Temrash is actually kind of an old character as well, in the sense that I thought him up while the series was still going. However I never used him in any fanfic or RP, so he isn't the most fleshed out character. The general idea of him has been in my head for over a decade. Claxter, on the other hand, is new.

o.O When the heck did you have a vampire in the bar!?

Well, there was a character who brought these demons to the bar just to fight. I came up with something powerful because I wanted something like Mar or the demons, and it was kind of like the death star. the Vampire came from there and fought one of the demons. They killed each other. Mechastar, as I called it, has faded out like some of my other characters.

So yeah, I had an Energy Vampire. Though he was just in for the fight and had no development. That's why he had no name. I tend not to name unimportant people. There was a Hunter after temrash that originally wasn't named, but I wound up having him talk to the people and gave him a name.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Myitt on December 01, 2010, 09:39:50 PM
This is exactly why it's important not to bring in a character without an idea of backstory, M.O., personality, and of course a name :P

Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: KitsuneMarie on December 01, 2010, 10:07:23 PM
A friend of mine wrote once a short story in which the main character (1st person narration) was never named, nor was their gender ever revealed. They were still important, and the reader still cared about them. It was actually a really cool experiment!

But yeah, I think the point is that it's better to care about and develop all characters. Creating characters is the closest the average person can come to actually creating people; there aren't undeveloped people in this world, so ideally, there shouldn't be undeveloped characters, either.

And, when I'm reading someone else's story, I like to piece together (and invent) information about so-called unimportant characters to make a richer and more enjoyable story and world.

Question.

Is Parker still MIA? I was away from RAF longer than I thought...
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Bear on December 02, 2010, 01:47:41 PM
Yep. Missing since November 1st. I sure would have liked his input on me blowing Desmond into the dirt...

Um... Technically, isn't Parker still on the CG ship? Or did someone write him getting on the shuttle...? I guess he could just backtrack and say he had followed us... without attacking or anything.... That's odd.

I caught something during the Thanksgiving get together too. I've still got my appetite, but not my usual energy. Luckily I don't have much work that needs to be doing. I just finished helping Mom get the tree and decorations up, and I'm a little pooped.

We can say Parker left the CG ship, otherwise he'd be in CG space with no way of getting back.

That was the assumption I was working under. Wouldn't do that to Parker. Couldn't leave him stranded with the CG.

I've noticed since the funeral Gaz is getting pretty grouchy. lol
Wondering if there might be some future marital trouble with the Morgans (Andromeda & Odysseus). Getting the idea that Andromeda is wondering if she can handle this life style.

I really like how you're making observations on your characters. It shows that you really give them personalities distinct from your own.

And I know that we aren't going to leave him stranded in a different Universe, never to return, but I do think that the CG ship is the last place he was. It was kinda a joke, (albeit, a lame one) 'cuz technically Parker is still there, unless someone posted otherwise ::). Like I said, lame joke.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Gaz on December 02, 2010, 07:09:56 PM
Thanks! I'm glad.  ;D

For at least a decade Morgan's been through a lot. Experimented on by the CG and held captive for 5 years and then a pirate/smuggler life for another 5. Believing his family dead for all that time.

Andromeda meanwhile, who knows what she's been through but obviously not as dead as had been previously believed. She might be undergoing some psychological stuff that's not showing. Yet.

They say absence makes the heart grow fonder. We'll see if that holds true for the Morgans. They obviously love each other, but Andromeda's not sure how she feels about the smuggler life style that her husband's been living. At least now that she's seen firsthand how dangerous it can be.

(I think out loud like this sometimes to help get things organized.)

It gets pretty crazy here, for sure. Lots of us tend to skip passages that don't pertain to our characters' storylines, but you might already be doing that, too. It could be a fun character development tool... your guy is baffled by the fast pace here, where people walk away mid-conversation sometimes, and then suddenly there's a gun fight, and etc. etc. That would fuel his desire to get out of here, but he can't unless he manages to get more coolant or whatever else he needs, which means he has to interact with these hectic people. It could be frustrating for him, and that could be fun! Just my two cents.... :2cents:

Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Myitt on December 03, 2010, 09:34:51 PM
Do what you can Gumby, no pressure :)

Chad, having Temrash know who and what Tora was is an example of knowing more than your character should know, because you, the writer, know it.  Unless I'm mistaken, Tora has been very careful about remaining in human form around everyone, and I don't think Temrash would know what she was--just that she was tagging along with the rebels, and probably was one herself.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on December 03, 2010, 09:39:51 PM
I may be mistaken, but I believe Temrash saw an Andalite with Myitt briefly that he didn't know. Then an unknown Human shows up later with Myitt. So he made an educated guess. Though if you don't think it's realistic for him to remember a small detail like that, then I can edit.

This was back before Salem got away from him.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: KitsuneMarie on December 03, 2010, 11:13:17 PM
I remember that moment. I think it's conceivable for Temrash to have put two and two together, although it certainly would not have been my first thought upon seeing two individuals from different species, "They're the same person because one was an Andalite and therefore can probably morph." If I remember correctly, there was a gap in time between when Temrash saw Andalite-Tora and when he saw human-Tora. Nevertheless, I do think it's conceivable that he could have figured it out. Thanks for bringing it up, Tara. Chad, I reckon if you want to leave the post as is, that's fine.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on December 03, 2010, 11:17:15 PM
Well it may be stretching it a bit for Temrash to remember what happened and all that. Unless I want him to be the type that's really good with details. Maybe I should edit it. I'll just have him go up and talk to Al, and merely say hello to Tara because he remembers her from before. I can leave out the part where he thinks she's an andalite.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion

I edited my posts back on 809.

Though now you may wind up getting rid of the line about fake calling the rebellion about not letting Temrash in. That might have been good drama. It's your loss, sister! You think my not joining would hurt me more than you? It is to laugh.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: KitsuneMarie on December 03, 2010, 11:39:13 PM
Actually... I'm sorry for doing this, Chad, and I appreciate your willingness to edit your post, but would you consider changing it back? Just because I can't find an in-character way for us to connect the dots.

What you changed Temrash's post to is nothing that would make Tora stand up and walk away -- and certainly nothing that would make her pretend to call Reven. If you had changed it right then, it probably would have been fine, but too much has happened, and I'd probably have to erase every one of my posts since then if you keep it changed -- which would cause Jessi and Scott to have to change their posts too, as well as your own.

Like I said, it's conceivable Temrash could have figured it out or at least suspected it, so let's just assume he did. It's easier than retrofitting a whole page of responses to one changed post.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on December 03, 2010, 11:42:49 PM
Just say Tora felt the need to get up to get away from Al, now that he was distracted with Temrash.

Ditto.....
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: KitsuneMarie on December 03, 2010, 11:59:01 PM
The problem is that I don't think it would be in character for Tora. Even though Tora was getting paranoid, she was actually enjoying talking to Al, and she wanted to know more. She blew up when Temrash came because he started loudly calling her out. Al was keeping it quiet, so she didn't mind so much.

Your next post will make no sense if I change mine, because Tora would have, in no way, incriminated herself as a member of the Rebellion to Temrash (meaning she wouldn't have mentioned her association with Myitt). So how would Temrash know about her allegiance, as he does in your post following the edited one? You're going to have to edit that, too. Also, see my post about Tora pretending to call the Base? In the edited version, she would have no reason to do that. I'm going to have to edit that post, and you'll have to edit the post following it about Temrash not wanting to work for such a boss as Tora.

It makes more sense to leave it as it was. If I edit my post following your edit, it's going to unleash an editing torrent among you and me, and possibly Scott and Jessi, too, to try to prevent character interactions from being halting and awkward.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion

Ok. What say we just ignore that part and move back to doing what we were doing? I already removed one post, so I can't put a post back in that spot again. So just pretend I didn't edit and move on as before.

Fine, but i'm going to put in an OOC bracket in my post right after your edit just to let folks know the gist of your previous post, because it's going to seriously confuse people who haven't caught up yet if it remains as is.

Wait... so ESRP just destroyed the door? Can we demolish the Bar like that?!?

It's always nice to see someone new here, btw. I'm just confused on whether or not the Bar is off limits for desctruction.....

Can I ask how your character got to the Bar door? There are several people outside within sight of the door who would notice him, and that could affect peoples' posts.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Aluminator (Kit) on December 04, 2010, 05:15:09 AM
I was under the impression the bar had a tendency to magically repair itself when nobody was looking :P I broke a few of the windows myself when I brought Salem in. They're certainly not still broken. There's enough to keep track of here already without keeping track of what state the bar itself is in over the hundreds of pages of posts.

Welcome to the Space Bar, Josh ^_^

By the way, Chad, that is awesome timing on mentioning the repair crew, since I was planning on introducing the Fleckteon my very next post anyway ;D
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Terenia on December 04, 2010, 09:41:19 AM
Yeah, at one point there was a massive hole punched through the ceiling of the bar, the bar counters were demolished and the back wall blown out with Dracon Fire.

The bouncers can handle it. They'll fix the door. :)

Who's immediately outside the bar right now? I think the only ones in the doorway are Asda, Hunter and Trey. Hunter hasn't posted in awhile, though. I'll make sure Trey notices.

Correct me if I'm wrong Gaz and Mythica, but I'm pretty sure our group (Rayker and his soldiers, Morgan and his crew/family, and Gumby's character. I think that Dara is there, too.) is relatively close to the bar. Maybe not immediately outside (that would be an odd place for a grave... up against the walls of a bar...) but pretty nearby.

Thing about falling when you're skiing- you're falling in snow! It doesn't actually hurt, you just think it does ;D

I'm not exactly a world-class skier myself, so if you guys want to do some of the easy stuff, I'd be more than happy to stick with you :P

Fear of falling is essentially my problem with winter sports in general. XD It either hurts or I end up colder/wetter than I started. :P

Tara, if you wanna ski I'll go on the baby slopes with you. XD But you have to ply me with copious amounts of hot chocolate before and after. ;)

Yeah, maybe not, but you shouldn't be getting a bunch of snow in all the wrong places when you fall. If you're dressing right, you'll still be comfortably dry and warm after a day of tumbling down ski slopes in blistering winds.

Post by: Terenia on December 07, 2010, 06:14:02 PM
Chad, it's a pretty quick assumption from Claxter that Efaen is in control. He probably picks up on a bit of odd behavior from the bowing and respect and whatnot, but remember that Terenia has not left Efaen's body and everything anyone knows about Terenia indicates that she would not give up control easily.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on December 07, 2010, 06:21:40 PM
Ok, I'll edit it. I just figured Terenia wouldn't bow and call him Prince, so it was probably Efaen.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Terenia on December 07, 2010, 06:22:45 PM
Yeah, she probably wouldn't, lol. I guess it just makes more sense to have that thought process written in with the post, you know? Even something as simple as "Claxter knew that Terenia would never bow to Ossanlin." Just to show how he got from point A to point B.


Edit: Thanks, Chad! :)

Post by: Chad32 on December 09, 2010, 07:48:25 PM
Efaen mentioning how Yeerk spies must avoid memory dumps somehow has me thinking of how Temrash's spies might avoid it. Of course some Vissers work for him, so dumps can be fabricated in those cases. However I'm not sure about the spies working under Vissers who don't work for him. Until I think of a good reason, I guess I'd have Temrash say he's not at liberty to talk, if he's ever asked that.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Myitt on December 10, 2010, 10:14:19 AM
Rebel spies also face the inevitability of a memory dump--unless they are in higher positions, which rarely happens. 

In order to combat that I usually try to think about installing a rebel or a bribed sympathetic Imperial to oversee the memory dump process on that particular ship before even thinking about sending any other spies.  And really, in the entire population of a big ship, the rebellion would only send perhaps one person.  There aren't many rebels who are still fully integrated within the Empire--which is another reason why losing Hadrin/Justin's position was such a hit.

Hey Gaz, Morgan never responded to Rayker's sentiments on page 815. Was that intentional, or did that go unnoticed?

Mythica, I wish one of my guys was wandering around to the back of the bar. For some reason, I'd really like to interact with Silver right now, see how she reacts to someone interrupting her session...

Sorry about that. I'll add something in a post when I get back from dropping my sister off at work. Morgan's a little distracted too, he might have been zoned out or something. lol

When I was watching Dawn Treader last night I was thinking: when you picture Morgan. Picture something like one of the minotaurs from the newest Narnia movies. That's about what I had in mind when I brought him in a while ago.

Thanks.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on December 12, 2010, 07:43:31 PM
That was accidental. The posts were coming too fast, and I only really saw the first one. And Temrash kicked Claxter down through a table. Andalites have four eyes, but no X-ray vision.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Terenia on December 12, 2010, 07:46:26 PM
Unfortunately, that's what happens sometimes when there are a lot of posts happening quickly. But you can't just ignore Tara's post about Corliss shooting Temrash, because it would mean others would have to change their posts too. If you miss it, you miss it, and you have to react accordingly to future posts.

Bear, please keep in mind that having an eight-foot wall of energy, which is "avoidable" but realistically unavoidable, is a form of powergaming.  I think since we've all responded to it that we'll let it slide this one time, but please everyone, remember: An unavoidable, super-powerful force with no realistic way of avoiding it is just the same as saying a shot hits without giving a chance to dodge.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Bear on December 12, 2010, 09:12:49 PM
Oh... I didn't see it that way. I'm sorry if I really didn't leave any room open for y'all to choose, but they would have fired in that situation. I guess I could have had the guns not set so wide or something and say they hadn't had enough time to adjust them before firing. I'll try to watch out for that better. Thanks for the reminder, Myitt.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Myitt on December 12, 2010, 09:16:13 PM
Thanks for understanding, Bear!  Just try to think about the whole scene in your head, like it's a movie scene or something.  Is there any way a shot can really be avoided?  If not, it's just the same as saying it hits. 

Also be careful when dictating what kind of wounds a shot will inflict.  As you can see, that's also up to the other writers :)  Saying something like the shot isn't very forceful is fine, but saying it will only cause a few bruises...how can anyone but the other authors know that?

Just a few tips.

Definitely. I wasn't trying to dictate what kind of injuries the other characters would/should recieve, but I can see how it looks that way. I was trying to say that Carson figured on that being the only injury anyone would get. If he'd thought there was a good chance of something worse, he might have held back. "Only bruising" was his assumption.

I still need to find a way to shed a couple characters... maybe they could help Morgan with his ship? I realized that I have an unfair advantage in that sense, too.

On a different note... I might have to go soon. If my brother gets home soon enough, we might get to go see Dawn Treader tonight!  :clap:

Thanks. My guys need some way off this rock, so I'll probably have some of them go try to build one from the junk yard or work with Morgan, if he'd let them. That way, I could have just one (or maybe two....) characters actually interacting at a time, and even switch out if needed. Once I figure out what to do with them, I promise not to gang up on y'all again.  ;D

Outside the bar, Morgan is still working on the outside mechanisms of the hatchway to his ship. Working under the sun, he had removed his shirt and was in his trousers.

Hey, I just had a thought (alert the authorities). How did Morgan get his shirt off? More importantly, how does he get shirts on to begin with?
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion

I just realized that after I posted it.

We'll say he has special button up/zip up shirts. Like vests he wears as shirts or tunics.  ;D

I think Morgan keeps wearing shirts, even though it seems silly to help him keep what humanity he has. Old habits and stuff, ya know. Least he doesn't try and wear shoes, that would be just silly.

My characters are a group of smugglers/pirates from a Firefly inspired universe.

Gaz: is 25 years old and started learning a bit more about secret projects that the CG was up to. Decided to join Odysseus Morgan's crew. Was disowned by her family. Her father works for the CG (Central Government).

Fletcher: (deceased) was 32 years old. He was Gaz's cousin (and only family member who spoke to Gaz). He was the mechanic/engineer aboard Morgan's ship and then Gaz's. He used to be an inside man for the CG and was sent to infiltrate Morgan's crew. During his work as a CG operative he was involved in a severe accident and had cybernetic surgery. After learning more he went rogue and joined up. Was killed by a CG official while protecting Silver. He was responsible for turning Silver over the the CG and then rescuing her.

Odysseus Morgan: Age 38. Morgan is currently a 7 foot tall, dark colored Minotaur. 10 years prior he was a regular human with a new family. His wife Andromeda was shot and presumed dead. His young daughter (Silver) went missing at the same time. Morgan was taken by a CG operate named Caven and was held by the CG for 5 years. During that time he was placed in a program experimenting with Genetic Engineering and was used as a human guinea pig. His conversion to his current state took 1 very painful year as the CG scientists would not allow pain medication. After coming to the bar he met Silver and discovered she was his long lost daughter. Following that he learned that his wife was still alive, but both had been subject to the same genetic engineering experiment. He is the captain of the ship The Cursed Pride.

Andromeda Morgan: Age 35. Andromeda is Odysseus' wife. She is the daughter of a high ranking CG official (Desmond). When she fell for a common space trader, her father was not pleased. Desmond had hoped she would marry Caven. In retaliation, Desmond disowned his daughter and hunted the couple down after they relocated. She was injured, but taken away. Currently she resembles Medusa to the extent that she has a couple of snakes in place of forelocks and a stripe of scales going down each arm.

Asda: Age 32. A 4 armed Doctor who was top of her class and a rising star in her field. She caught the attention of certain members of one of the secret CG projects and was chosen to work on one. That was the Genetic Engineering project. Once she learned what was going on, she rescued Morgan and as many others as she could. As a result she lost her job at the hospital and has been ship's doctor for The Cursed Pride ever since.


Currently: The group is trying to deal with the recent loss of Fletcher, who sacrificed himself to save Silver. He was buried not long ago. Morgan is trying to lose himself doing repair work on the hatchway of his ship. Gaz is in the bar drinking and Andromeda has been in her quarters this whole time. Asda has been running around tending to various bar injuries also losing herself in work.

Silver: age ranges about 18-19 years old. She lost her parents when she was young and was handed over to the CG and for years was put through different tests. Poked and prodded with needles and syrums. The only problem was the only "visible" effects were the facts that she could throw illusions. She was rescued from the CG by Fletcher when he discovred the truth. Many years later she came upon the bar where she found her Father. Then soon after her mother. Later her life was rescued one last time by Fletcher when Desmond (her own grandfather) had tried to kill her. Now she is sitting with Gaz at the bar.

Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on December 15, 2010, 07:44:23 PM
Here goes.

Temrash/Jagill: Temrash is a former high ranking controller (Visser 8). He was not one that got caught up in his own power, or all the propaganda. Eventually he grew bored of all the fighting, partly because he disagreed with the Council of Thirteen, and partly because he lost all of his family and most of his closest friends. fortunately after he left most of his subordinates remained loyal to him. They work within the Empire, giving him access to almost everything within the Empire. Some are Vissers, and some are at the bottom of the ladder. His connections, plus his skills as a fighter, make him one of the most notorious individuals on the Empire's hit list. There's also a trick he uses to allow Jagill to power through most attacks. He releases his hold on Jagill's motor functions while clamping down on his pain receptors. This greatly reduces Jagill's ability to feel pain, though Temrash can feel it. Jagill is a large and heavily scarred Hork-Bajir.

He came to the bar while on the run from a bounty hunter, and became acquainted with Myitt and Corliss. At first he considered joining their resistance, but recent developments have caused him to rethink it. He gets along with Ossanlin, though Jagill doesn't like him much (or any Andalite). He's become friends with Gaz and her group as well.


Claxter: Claxter is an Andalite who is barely considered a Warrior. He ran away from his first brutal battle because he was too afraid to stay and fight. He's more or less a coward, and as yet hasn't been very successful in anything he's tried to do. He considers Ossanlin his Prince, though this was recent. He has feelings for Efaen, though those feelings are strained. He has basic training skills, and is a competent fighter.

There isn't as much to say about him, as he hasn't had much development. The main reason he's tolerant to Yeerks is because he hasn't had enough time to be completely brainwashed by Propaganda. Even though he isn't much older than Ax from the series, or possibly Efaen.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Terenia on December 15, 2010, 09:36:22 PM
Alright, here goes.

Terenia: Terenia was born human who became an Andalite nothlit. Unaccepted in Andalite society, she was instead taken to be experimented on in an attempt to cure nothlitism. Eventually the scientists succeeded, but their breakthrough was short lived. Terenia managed to escape the lab (which was aboard a Dome Ship) and escape into space. A series of events followed in which Terenia killed her brother from Earth at the bidding of Visser Three andpunished herself by becoming re-nothlitized as a Yeerk. When the Andalites find out they again find an alternative use for her, using her Yeerk form as a tool in espionage. Any time a former host is captured in battle she is forced to enter them, make them become involuntary, extract useful information, and then leave. Eventually she gets fed up, steals an Andalite for a host, and runs back to Visser Three with the intent of saving her one surviving family member, her twin sister Tamora.

This fails when Tamora is kidnapped by Ossanlin & Co. and Terenia decides that there is no saving her sister (who is a voluntary Controller). Instead, Terenia kills Tamora, granting her the ultimate "freedom".

Tamora (deceased): Tamora entered the bar when Ossanlin, Myitt, Claxter and Aliciana kidnapped her and her Yeerk from the Blade Ship. Her Yeerk, Zorish, was starved out and Tamora, who was voluntary, was left to fend for herself. She tried to seek revenge, putting hits out on Myitt and Terenia both through a bounty hunter. When that failed she tried making Myitt her new Yeerk. Myitt wouldn't have it and turned Tamora over to Ossanlin. Ossanlin in turn gave Tamora to Terenia, who killed her.

Efaen: Efaen is a female Andalite who had just finished her aristh training when Terenia captured her and forced her to become an involuntary host. For a long time the two fought bitterly for control, but over time Efaen grew to grudgingly accept her fate, if only because it allowed her to be close to the Yeerks and plot against them. Efaen was temporarily freed, but chose to accept Terenia back because she fears that as a female Andalite in the military (and one who Visser Three would likely target) she will not be allowed to fight the Yeerks properly. Instead, she chose the possibility of espionage with Terenia controlling them. This is not to say the two get along. They tolerate one another at best, and usually seek to make the other miserable. Efaen has a rather old-fashioned view of Andalites, believing that they are superior and all others inferior. The Yeerks, especially, are incapable of anything but evil.

Trey: Trey comes from a universe that exists twenty years after the Yeerks lost the war for Earth. He is the son of two Yeerks who were forced to become nothlits when the war was lost. As a 'grub' he grew up a second-class citizen, deprived of many basic rights. He left Earth with his father, with plans of beginning a rebellion. The plans went astray when their ship crashed on the planetoid housing the bar for unknown reasons. Trey's father died due to injuries sustained in the crash.



That's the brief version. If you want to read Terenia, Tamora and Efaen's story in more depth I am posting it under the Fanfiction section here: Playing War: The Traitor (http://animorphsforum.com/forum/index.php?topic=4689.0).

One thing about Temrash and Jagill's relationship. Jagill is voluntary, but sees Temrash as his superior officer. They act as commander and soldier, yet as still very close friends. Jagill's will was broken by the time Temrash took him as a host, but Temrash didn't oppress him too much. over time they began to become closer. Jagill helps Temrash save his people from war, while Temrash makes plans to save Jagill's planet and people.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: KitsuneMarie on December 15, 2010, 09:55:34 PM
Elayne Jogan was in high school when the Yeerk invasion reached its peak. The strange mood changes in her dad—who went from an apathetic parent to someone who was highly interested in her and the culture all around him—caused her to enjoy spending time with him for the first time since her childhood. Only when the Yeerk invasion was uncovered did she realize her father's shift was not due to a change in his heart but a change in his identity.

Preferring the Yeerk in her father's head to her father, she began a Yeerk rights movement that ultimately branded her a national pest and villain. Those who opposed her became violent and, during a protest, her father and his Yeerk were both killed. Her true cause for fighting now gone, Elayne fled the planet. When she arrived at the Bar, she befriended Mar, who, despite his creepy factor, was the first person to treat her with some level of respect and romantic interest since her teenage years.



Ertoran-Sorath-Anduross (Tora) was selected—along with her classmate Serid—from among the arisths of her age to engage in a secret espionage mission on Earth during the war. Serid was ordered to morph a human and pass as a Controller, while Ertoran was ordered to morph a Yeerk and reside in Serid’s brain. Only these two Andalites and their commanding officer were aware of this distasteful mission. The more time Ertoran spent among Yeerks and in Yeerk morph, the more she sympathized with them.

Serid never suspected his partner's compassion for their enemy until one evening when he was nearing the two-hour morph limit and was forced to demorph in a quiet corner of the Yeerk Pool. He and Ertoran were spotted and captured; the Yeerks ordered Ertoran to evacuate his body so he could be interrogated, and she was put in a personal Pool to await punishment for neglecting to tell anyone she had managed to gain an Andalite host. While Serid’s memories were being analyzed, Ertoran demorphed, morphed into a mosquito, and escaped the Yeerk Pool with the intention of rescuing Serid as soon as possible. She gained a human morph to pass as a Controller, but she never discovered anything about Serid's whereabouts.

When the war ended, Ertoran was plagued with shame for her betrayals, so she cut off contact with the Andalite home world, left Earth, and joined the Yeerk rebellion. Her former commander has sinced placed a significant bounty on her head, as the revelation of her original assignment—not to mention what she has been doing since—would be a scandal.





I am planning on introducing Serid to the Bar soon.  >:D

I have a back story worked out for him, sorry... :-\ Unless you have an idea for something better? I'm open.

I just didn't think Visser 3 would allow another Andalite Controller to live, so I didn't plan on Serid and his Yeerk remaining with the Empire. It explains why no one has heard from him, including Tora.

My characters that you haven't interacted with.  ;D

Kevlin/Dara: Kevlin is a yeerk who is in intelligence under Visser Fifteen. He had a human host name George but recently infested Dara at his request to help find Dara's mom. Dara was one of Visser Three's bodyguards. He is a seer. He and Kevlin get along very well. They crack jokes and Share control. They both work for Temrash.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on December 15, 2010, 10:07:53 PM
Nah, he'd definitely be working for someone else. Maybe the Yeerk that took him already worked for Temrash, and Temrash has used him to keep an eye on some Andalite going ons. But if you already have something arranged, that's fine. I just thought it would be funny if Tora found out not only is her brother alive, but he works for Temrash who she doesn't like.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: KitsuneMarie on December 15, 2010, 10:12:12 PM
Serid's not her brother, just her former classmate. And he has lost contact with the Andalites, too. He's another Abomination, and I don't think he'd have been able to sneak portable Kandrona into a Dome Ship, anyway. :P

Yeah, I'll just keep with my current plans. But yes, that would've been a funny conversation. :)

I mentioned sticking with temrash and Claxter, though being reminded of the Vampire makes me think of introducing another one. Just to have an evil character. I'd still meet the three character limit, at least. I'm going to think of a story for him, though.

Sounds good Baron, welcome to the GESB!  This is a good way to start out--I mean, beyond having a basic physical description of some of the characters in the bar, this is how a REAL bar visit would go.  No one knows who anyone else is, beyond visual appearance/species.  And, of course, some people here have characters who are friends.

My characters are Myitt One-Nine-Five and her host Tara, and Corliss Three-Eight-Two and his host Mike.  All are members of the Yeerk rebellion, which is a sort of extra militant off-branch of exiled Yeerks, allied with the Peace Movement but generally displeased with their methods of operation.

None of them are in the bar right now, but that might change :)

Post by: Luke Skywalker (Ossanlin) on December 17, 2010, 05:29:28 AM
I have two characters, but my second is almost never in the bar and is not currently.  My main character is:


Ossanlin-Rethin-Sephirel, War-Prince and Captain of the Dome Ship Tyrennian, Fleet Commander.  Ossanlin for short.  His closest friends sometimes call him Oss or Ossy.
Ossanlin is a progressive Andalite with some uncharacteristic views of a lot of different things.  He is friends with the Rebel Alliance and works with them on occasion.  He has a somewhat more-developed upper body than most Andalites and wears a utility/battle-harness.  It basically consists of a belt around the mid-section of his upper torso and two crossing straps across his chest and back.  He wears a katana at each side of the belt and has the strength to wield them, the harness is also equipped with dual modified shredders and various supplies, rations, an ARC (handheld computer), emergency medical supplies, etc.
Ossanlin also has some rather uncharacteristic capabilities that are not obvious upon first glance, but I won't reveal those here.
Ossanlin is not currently in the bar.  He is in hork-bajir morph in Temrash's ship outside.


My secondary character is:

Seran-212 of the Sereck-Nai pool.  A.K.A. Visser 8.  He is a hork-bajir controller that has a history with Ossanlin and is a typical power-grabbing Yeerk.  He's not in the bar and I don't have any current plans to bring him back atm.



~Also, welcome newcomers!  Please  make sure to read the first page of this OOC post for rules and regulations.  They're important if you don't want ppl jumping down your throat.  XD  But seriously, please read them and make an effort to abide by them.

All right, you're on a ship outside the bar--but no one else seems to be interacting with your characters.  Can anyone else feasibly get inside your ship?

If they can't, you should start a new thread until your characters come back outside the ship.  Normally I'd say this rule is only for characters that have left the bar, but it's becoming clear that your storyline is very self-contained. 

It's your choice, but I'd suggest a new thread until your characters return to interacting with everyone else.

Did Elayne wander over to Temrash's ship, or someone else's? I want to make sure before i have Fredrick interact with Elayne. Personally I'd love to have Fredrick manipulate Elayne, so Mar would get ticked at him.

Chad, just a note about your vampire. I swear I'm not picking on you. :P It just makes me nervous whenever beings more powerful than your Average Joe walks into the bar.

 I notice that he can manipulate energy somewhat, which is cool. Just remember that energy can't be spontaneously created. If it is leaving Fredrick for some other being that means that your character is losing energy. The amount of energy that it would take to heal someone, then, would probably result in severely debilitating your character, for at least a little while. At the very least it would probably make him extremely tired.

That seems to be the most logical way to deal with energy manipulation, in my opinion. I might be wrong, though. I just figure it's a safeguard against potential powergaming (not that you've done that. You haven't. It's more of an insurance thing :P ).
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on December 20, 2010, 01:20:49 AM
You have a point. Fredrick shouldn't have a boundless supply of energy, though I haven't decided what his limit is. He did just have a feed by taking bits of energy from other's though, so at the very least he's working on a full stomach.

In light of powermodding concerns, I want to highlight that, while my character may seem too powerful as things come to light, that's not the case.

I need more detail in order to have Terenia react appropriately.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on December 22, 2010, 12:02:01 AM
No, it's not a third eye. It's just hypnotic powers with his two eyes, except he needs to focus on it for it to work. That way he doesn't hypnotize everyone that makes eye contact with him.

The hypnosis is a kind of mind control, except Fredrick needs to maintain constant eye contact or it will start to wear off. I'm willing to think that stalk eyes may allow Andalites to resist it better.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Terenia on December 22, 2010, 12:41:14 AM
Sorry to barrage you with questions, but you're kind of making a major play against my character and I have very little to go off of right now.

What does it mean to inhale her energy? Will that affect her at all, or just him? Does "feeding" require literally feeding in old-school vampire fashion, or is it all about energy/aura? What would the result of a successful (or semi-successful) feeding be? A dead person? A zombie? No apparent change, even though there really is a change (as when Mar takes people's souls)?

Kind of important details. :P


EDIT: Also, would it impact both Terenia and Efaen or just Terenia?
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on December 22, 2010, 12:49:24 AM
The effect of energy feeding would just leave her exhausted. He could drink her blood, in which case she would die. I don't know if Vampirization should come into play. Might make things complicated.

Since he can manipulate energy, feeding off of energy does give him more stamina, and more to work with when he uses energy to create anything, like force fields or energy swords.

I'm also thinking his medallion can trap souls, but I haven't decided if he can rip a soul out of a person's body, or if he has to kill someone, wait for the soul to come out, then trap it.

I think it would have more of an effect on Efaen than Terenia.

So, from what I'm reading, Frederick and Terenia are in the woods just outside the bar...?

If, say, Terenia was being attacked by a Vampire with a whip, how likely is it that people in or around the bar will hear the whip crack? (Mainly, how far from the bar are you? 20 feet? 20 meters? 200 meters?)
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: KitsuneMarie on December 22, 2010, 08:35:16 AM
Along the same vein, would it be appropriate for Jessi and me to have Elayne and Trey to hear all the thought speak shouting, or would it not be possible from where they are on the other side of Temrash's ship?
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion

Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Terenia on December 22, 2010, 10:05:01 AM
We're about twenty or thirty feet from the entrance of the bar. Well within view of the door.

It would be likely that people inside the bar would at least hear Terenia shouting, although they may find it hard to distinguish from the other bar noises. Not sure about Elayne and Trey, though. I think they might be too far away.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on December 22, 2010, 12:18:16 PM
I don't think the hissing would be very loud, but the cracking could be. Especially since it's an unfamiliar sound, and unfamiliar sounds can be more noticable than ones you hear all the time.

I don't know. Fredrick's not going to be able to drag her off with Ossanlina and Temrash coming for him, anyway. He may be able to elave a memento, though. Inject her with the drug-like energy. That is, if he gets his fangs into her.

After that I imagine he will just lurk in the woods.

Steph, I command you not to eat frozen mammoth meat!  It just ain't right!  Plus it probably smells really bad!  Ugh!

I think a Controller technically counts as two characters, but just being a Yeerk in a jar wouldn't really allow the Yeerk to interact or communicate (unless it was one of those purple boxes...) so in that respect I think Controllers get a free pass for two characters at once, even for newbies.

Chad, if you want you can have your vampire get a hold of Terenia's tail or something. I'll let her get 'bitten' I guess, depending on what the drug does to her. I figure it's pretty realistic that he'd be able to grab it since she can't move it. Though he'll probably get a hoof to the face. :P

It just works like your typical drug. Makes you feel really good when it's in effect, and really bad when it isn't.

And I'm assuming the effects would be eliminated once someone morphs. Unless it's a psychological drug rather than physiological.

 It's a presence that doesn't just disappear when morphing. That would make it too easy. It's demonic in origin, so it isn't normal. Psychological is good.

Scinlao, make sure that you are not telling other people what damage they are taking. You did it with Chad and Mythica, saying that you slashed both of them with your talons and drew blood. You can't decide that. Only they can. You can attempt to slash them, but they get to decide if it hits or not.

Just remember guys, try to describe your characters with actual textual descriptions, rather than video or picture explanations.  It's fine to have original characters from video game universes, but it has the drawback of using a bit less imagination to think about what's unique about your character--everything's already drawn out in visual form.

And don't worry Jessi, I'm pretty sure Corliss doesn't hate Terenia ;D

Chad, don't forget Mar. 

He's basically higher than Crayak...but, with significant drawbacks in his current form.

Agreed, Myitt.

I'm intending my guy to be a character who is referred to only by name in the game, so that leaves me more freedom to play with how he looks, thinks, acts and feels.

As of right now that is the only video I intend to post, short of PM'ing a small video to people if they access my memories.

And even then, I'm just debating sending a written transcript instead.

My guy does have the his weakness though. Whenever he expends biomass to create ground-spikes, he's limited to between 1-3 attacks like that in a row, depending on biomass. After that (and when he needs to heal wounds immediately, as opposed to regenerating them) he needs to consume fresh biomass.

That may be a little difficult to get hold of in or around he bar :P

Poor Ossanlin.......

Luke! Here's the short version for when you log on!

Fredrick the Vampire attacked Terenia. She was injured, but managed to morph human before exhaustion knocked her unconscious and Temrash took her back to the ship. Baron, mythica and Scinlao's characters all ran off in pursuit and epic battle took place. The result of the battle was Silver and Scinlao were injured and Baron's character was killed. Fredrick is hiding underwater recuperating. Mar and Fredrick have been having a psychic conversation where they basically establish eachother's territory.

That's about all you need to know based on your character's current position.

A note to all current and future bar patrons:

Please keep in mind that while the bar attracts creatures from all universes and timelines this is, at heart, an Animorphs rpg. As such, please take into consideration the abilities of those creatures and create your own character accordingly. If an ordinary (non morph-capable) human cannot defeat your character in some way, then it is probably too powerful. Even Mar, the most powerful character in the bar, is extremely hindered. For example, he cannot so much as summon a bit of fire without ripping a chunk out of his own flesh, and if his character dies in bar it will take a substantial amount of time for him to be able to return.

Sorry, I don't want to be the bad guy, but I also don't want this getting too out of hand with unfamiliar universes and characters that could all grind an ordinary human to dust.

Thanks for posting this, Jessi. For me, since my characters are wholly embedded in the Animorphs 'verse, fights like the recent one are extremely frustrating because they would destroy my characters in a heartbeat. The only reason Terenia/Efaen got away with as little damage as they did is because 3 or 4 people came to their rescue. Tora and Elayne would not be able to hold off attacks from many Bar characters simply because they're human (or, in Tora's case, usually in human form).

I respect that folks are developing characters, and with that comes character consistency, so I don't expect anyone to fundamentally change his or her characters, but being conscious of the inabilities of most Animorphs 'verse characters so as to avoid powergaming would be helpful. Thanks, guys.

That's fine, Terenia. As I say, Pariah can only do so much until he needs to feed, something he can't do near the bar.

For all intents and purposes, I'm toying with the idea of killing him off, since he was somewhat of a test-character and does seem somewhat out-of-place here :-\

If I do kill him off, I may just frenzy/bezerk him in some sort of failed attempt to gain more Reptilinod abilities (I intend this to go down with no casualties), at which point *cough* An illusion directed at the thousands of minds within him would surely drive him mad and into a trap *cough*...

Humans are also quick and resourceful. They can use weapons and technology to aid them. But they cannot defeat a trans-dimensional monster capable of turning them into dust by looking at them, and pitting two characters like that side by side will not be a fun battle. As Marie said, the bar exists for more of character and story development purposes than for fighting purposes. Yes, fights happen, but they should not be central to the activity of the bar.

I don't think you are uncreative, Chad. I think that you focus more on what your character does than why they do it. Most of your posts consist of just dialogue and action. There is little to no internal conversation, or background motivation for why the characters act the way they do, which is really helpful in the long run for character development (and why most of my posts are never shorter than a full paragraph or two).

For example, when Temrash attacked Corliss his in character reason for doing so was to defend Corliss, even though the two had barely ever conversed and their alliance was tentative at best. Not to mention Temrash was involved in a completely separate conversation at the time. The out-of-character reason Temrash did that was because you wanted something for him to do. I think you need to trust your character personalities and instincts more, rather than focusing on how to create some conflict or action.

EDIT: btw, I thought I'd mention, your characters all have great potential. In my opinion, Claxter especially has room for awesome development, being the Andalite warrior who ran away from war out of fear. That's a great starting point, but you have to continue to develop it. In the time since coming to the bar what has he done? How will that impact his view of the war, given how he entered? What about his personality? His goals? His allies and enemies?

I don't know if I'm qualified to address your question, considering I have two female characters who are traitorous outcasts, but I hope I've constructed characters with dissimilar enough personalities to offer you a little help.

How did you develop your personality? A lot of it is through your experiences, right? So if you could sit down and write a rational biography of each of your characters, it should theoretically lead to a resultant (and constantly developing) personality. When someone is betrayed, they often become mistrustful and bitter. When someone is successful, they can become prideful.

Look at your characters' backgrounds, fill in the gaps, take into account the fact that the other characters from their pasts have their own personalities, and keep developing personalities based on that. I don't think you're uncreative; after all, your characters have wildly different character backgrounds, and they're all really very interesting. My advice is to let those different backgrounds guide their thoughts, actions, and reactions with a more steadfast hand, rather than how you, the player, might want the characters to think, act, or react.

Then, yes.

As for a new character... Possibly a Werewolf. Only one form for him to change into. Savage, but not ridiculously powerful.  may make it so that he's old enough to change at will, but that will take the same amount of time as morphing. He'll be as strong as maybe a strong human or Hork-Bajir and be able to choose between Dire Wolf form and Bipedal Wolf form, but that's about it. Oh, and weak against silver.

Yeeeaahhh. When Frederick got into that fight, I was a little worried we were going to go back to the "Dark Ages" again. XP That was a somewhat hilarious time, but not fun as far as Bar development was concerned. And to help in the absurdity...:3

When a character does have powers, creating an internal logic to the way their powers work is helpful. Not only does it almost always produce a few huge limits, but it's fun character development. For instance, Mar cannot conjure fire in human form because he does so in avatar form by drawing upon his huge body. Since the only form he has now is his own human body.......yeeeeaaa aaahhh. XD

Thinking about crazy stuff like this for any powered characters is quite fun. :D Also, each character views reality in a unique way shaped by their experiences. Joanne and Keshin, for instance, are amiable but will betray you for a better deal faster than you can blink. Terenia is warped by her awful life and carries a host of personality disorders. Think less about what you'd do and more about what they'd do.

....then curse at them for being mean. XP

Well then I might as well tell you all, the Reptilinod have a preset amount of abilities:

Empath: Sense emotions acutely within a 10 foot radius(Not one of there better abilities)
Agerepath: The ability to sense what the other is about to do(3 seconds before, not very keen sense)
Telepath: Attack ability, defense ability, and passive sense; the ability to speak through thoughts, and sense the others thoughts
3 hearts: 3 circulatory systems, one homeothermic, two ectothermic.
95 mph: Running fast
Jump: 3x current body height.

There you go. :). I set those abilities when I was a kid. Haven't changed since, wont ever.

Temrash is a badass Hork-Bajir controller, but doesn't really have any special abilities. He's just the Chuck Norris of Hork-Bajir controllers.

Claxter isn't a badass. He's just good at the basics. Good at tail fighting, and a good shot with a shredder.

There was a fight involving Parian, who talked to Gaz, but even though he survived the battle, his writer decided to kill him off. So any plans you has between him and Gaz just flew out the window. Various people got involved in the fight, including Silver. She's in or near a ship, getting healed. Fredrick escaped under water, and is hidden away.

It's not just that Jessi...I'm rather attached to my character and I know his thoughts and internal processes.  I have had to have him take incorrect actions or actions that would not be within his character before because I wasn't able to check the bar often enough.  This one was major though.  There is absolutely NO WAY Ossanlin would've just stood by and watched that entire scene happen.  He wouldn't have just let Terenia get attacked by this dark being...he would've fought.  There was an opportunity for him to regain some of Terenia's trust (maybe) and it was missed.  It wasn't missed because other characters did something unexpected and made it impossible, it was just because I didn't check the bar often enough and ten pages were written in a day.  It irks me.  I can't post that Ossanlin fought...that would've changed the reactions of others involved.  All I could do was write a cheap cop-out post that said the Ellimist intervened for no apparent reason.  It's annoying, and I don't want to deal with it.  It's unrealistic and I pride myself on realistic character portrayal.  So until I can keep up and have Ossanlin behave the way he would behave instead of writing cheap, little after-the-fact posts, he's out and I'm out.

That's a really good point, Luke. I totally agree with that. In an RP like this, that's just too much. Heck, you can hardly miss a page before you end up left behind! As y'all might have noticed, I've left my guys playing poker at their little table. I don't think I'll be using them again, unless someone decides to go interact with them.

I'll miss you too, Luke. )= You're one of the more awesome characters in the Bar. Hey I missed like six pages too, and I don't wanna leave. Probably just because Mar is conveniently self-centered, but I'd prefer to have a little time to write a proper psychological response to this stuff too. My consistency with his head isn't as good because the Bar moves too fast. I bet a lot of people are having problems like that. :3

.......we'll miss you, though. D:

As for Bionicles, Gymn.......nah. It's actually better in this Bar to keep it to Original Universe characters and Original Animorphs characters only. That way the canon consistency is slightly less shot to hell. xP

I can already tell that Morgan's going to be beating himself up when he learns what happened and that Silver was hurt. He was feelin sort of bad that he jumped into "protective father" mode earlier when someone was just talking to her in the bar. This time she was hurt and him intervening would have been justified and he missed that chance.

I can't speak to the fight, but the explosion was Tora's damaged Bug fighter, which was parked in the gravel ship yard. Several other ships--I believe most of them good for little more than scrap--were in the vicinity and so probably got some damage. It was otherwise as contained as possible.

––––
Name: Onyx "Iron Clad"
Age: 42
Species: Unknown
Creature Type: Turtle
Gender: Male
Height: 9' 11" (3 Meters)
Eye Color: Fiery Orange
Shell Color: Onyx Black
Skin Color: Dark Green
Personality:
He is a cold hearted creature, cares for very few people. He has been known to be rather violent when angry or frustrated.

Super Natural Powers:
He has the ability to manipulate gravity. He can also bend EM and light waves, enabling him to bend and distort visual appearance of some things, even to the point of making things invisible. However these powers require a lot of mental strength hence he does not often need them.

Appearence:
He has a dark feel in his appearance. His skin has an armored texture (bullet resistant as well), and his eyes look like eyes of evil. He has a large muscle mass and is very strong. His hands and claws share similarities of Orga (google it if you do not know... usually the first 3 results help). So he has large claws. He also has a very high muscle mass making him a rather bulky creature.

He says:

He basically lacks mental stamina which limits how much he can use his abilities. Also, he is completely unable to speak humanoid. Which makes him rather hard to socialize without a telepath.

The more practical weakness when fighting is the fact that as strong as he is, he is not that fast, nor is he as quick to think of his next move. Often making him follow his animal instincts.

 He has a history of getting into fights all because of misunderstandings simply because he can't verbally express himself.

What I'd add is that, while you determine how your own character is impacted by others, it's important to make sure other characters have reasonable options. For example, if I were to send out some kind of attack that could not reasonably be avoided, even though I didn't say that anyone got hit, I don't give anyone a chance to avoid getting injured. It's sort of a passive form of god modding. Just FYI, there are quite a number of powerless humans in the Bar, as well as Andalites and Hork-Bajir who have little more than natural defenses.

As far as GESB rules go, I'm sure Scinlao is taking good care of you, but I'd be remiss if I didn't point out these guidelines (http://animorphsforum.com/forum/index.php?topic=6830.msg510398#msg510398).

Welcome to RAF and the GESB, Excalibur! Let us know if you have questions!

If thought-speech counts, the Andalites do. That includes Ossanlin and Alic (who are currently out of gameplay), Efaen (Terenia's host, although she spends much of her time in human morph and is currently unconscious), Serid (Illim's host, in human form, currently outside the Bar, heading to the building), Claxter, and Tora (usually in human morph, currently in Myitt's ship). I think John, Frederick, and some others have thought-speech abilities too, but I'll let them speak for themselves. :)

Duly Noted. ^^

Is there an Animorph encyclopedia? I just want to get all the major terms in my head (I know about 60%. But its been a while since I read the books. Technical terms is acceptable.) If there is no such thing I'm sure I'll lean along the way.

One thing of note, Scinlao. I may have it possible to rescue Vogefac's soul if Fredrick removes part of it. He'll hold it in his amulet, and you can get it out with help. You may need Mar or something like him, though. Something that can detect a soul.

Oh, and welcome newcomer. Nice to have fresh blood in the bar.

There you go. :).

Post Merged: December 28, 2010, 04:24:37 PM
btw, just in case, here's a little extra info on the Reptilinod:

I've never really drawn each Reptilinod quite the same. For that reason, I've taken to the belief that every Reptilinod is different –– some have serrated horns, some have smaller toe claws, some have neck dewlaps, some have tail spikes.

Also, the Reptilinod have done two massive genetic campaigns, both mildly successful. The first introduced the ability to use telepathy for attack and defense, as well as serrated horns and additionally long claws and talons. It created Beta Generation. The next introduced the abnormally strong muscles and tendons in the lower body, and even longer claws, talons, and horns. This created Gamma Generation.

Vogefac is a product of the most recent campaign –– Delta Generation. The new ones have red crests instead of knobs on their snout, always spiked tails, advanced mental discipline and command capacities, and double-spiked back-spines.

Myitt probably wouldn't know Illim, but there is a chance, as he's a part of the Yeerk Peace Movement. She has probably heard Tora mention Serid before; she would have only told her closest friends at the Base about her troubled past.

Post by: Luke Skywalker (Ossanlin) on December 28, 2010, 05:57:36 PM
Well I suppose it couldn't be helped...I do enjoy role playing and I've missed the bar over the past several days.  Also I've been told by a player that they have a character that is somewhat dependant upon Ossanlin for development.  It isn't fair for me to put one of their characters out of commission.  After thinking about it for some time, trying to find a solution, I believe I've stumbled across one albeit an imperfect one.

I'm simply going to have to have Ossanlin ignore certain players and characters, namely those who post multiple times a day.  I'm sorry in advance to anyone who tries to interact with Ossanlin and doesn't receive a response.  I may have to take some...liberties... in order to have Ossanlin be able to react the way he would react...such as if there is a fight that happens so quickly (as with the recent unpleasantness), I will write a post after the fact that states how Ossanlin was involved with the fight including some character reactions that are reasonable but will in no way affect how the fight came out, thus no one will have to alter previous posts and I will not infringe upon character thoughts and feelings, only physical actions...and I will not have Ossanlin score any direct hits or try to force characters to take damage that they didn't take in the fight in their player's posts.  This is very tame 'god-modding' on my part and I hope not to have to do it, but I see no other way around it should this situation arise again.  Should such a situation arise I have full faith that Tara, Jessi, Kelly, or Marie will let me know if they think I've gone too far.  After all, we more or less started this thread, we wrote the rules, and we all appreciate similar things in an RP.  I would do the same for them.

End rant...I am posting Ossanlin back in, but be warned, I'm whipping out the limited-mod card.  (Only if absolutely necessary.)

I will also try not to let that incident happen again. If things look like they're going really fast, and one of my characters is in the middle of it, then I'll ration my posting out. It looks like another chase is going to happen, but I'll try not to let it go super fast.

btw, Gymn, the PR/E allows you to take any form you want, but you still have only the abilities that come with the form.

Cheetah would give you speed, because of aerodynamics, and musculature. If you were a long mass of 'venomous' clawed tentacles, the claws would be real, but you could have no venom. Stuff like that.

Nice to meet you, Excalibur! I'm Bear. I haven't been on RAF for too long, though I definitely don't think I count as 'new' anymore. I was active in the GESB until just recently, though I will probably re-enter soon enough.... don't worry, Teach, I'll have an Aniverse charie. I have some Random Advice for you, if you're interested. I have a character in another RP. ('Bear' in Introduction Randomness (http://animorphsforum.com/forum/index.php?topic=2223.msg532523#msg532523)) who is unable to speak, and communicates solely based on expressive behaviors. He often uses a form of 'charades' to share complex ideas, and simple sounds and body language for most other thoughts and concepts. Not that I'm a pro at it or anything, but you might be interested in checking out some of my posts for Bear to get a feel for nonverbal communications.

It was Scinlao. He found a way to break control. Personally I was considering having Fredrick just eat the guy. especially if you really want to kill John off. If you want to, I'll try to get it to happen in this battle.

Chad, you do know that Frederick will eventually die, right? I would prefer it if you didn't kill John and instead kept him as a servant until Frederick dies. He would most likely be much easier to control than Vogefac. After all he is only human!

Post by: Chad32 on December 29, 2010, 08:14:33 AM
If things keep going like this, it looks like he will die. However I kind of wanted him to be a recurring villain that didn't die so quickly. Scinlao can you change your post so the battle isn't so incredibly one sided. Fredrick can't fight off Vogefac, Claxter, John, Silver, and Morgan. I need someone powerful on his side.

He won't even be able to bring anyone else to his side unless he has someone holding the rest off. John or not.

I figured since she spent most of her life kind of in hiding she didn't know what a lot of things were. She spent most of her time training therefore she is great with nature not machines....hence sparking herself when helping Morgan.

Morgan wasn't always a Minotaur. His current state is the result of genetic engineering, which was a secret project by officials in the government in the universe he's from. He was taken prisoner (on bogus charges) and used as a human guinea pig. Andromeda was subject to the same treatment.
 
Before that Morgan (which is actually his last name. Full name is Odysseus Morgan) and Andromeda were a happy new family with a young daughter (Silver). Then Andromeda was supposedly killed, Silver went missing and Morgan was taken away. He was captive for 5 years, and the change took 1 year to complete. He's been rogue (smuggler/pirate) ever since. It's been 10 years since he was initially captured. Asda (the doctor) is the one who helped rescue him, and most of the people who make up his crew. In his former life Morgan worked as a Trader/hauled cargo around the planets.

Haha I winged Silvers character into the Drama and she ended up becoming his long lost daughter. She was too young to truly remember much when kidnapped nd went through a lot of trauma over the years - including the past events - and so her mind is weak but her heart is strong.

Hey Luke! Here's the description of Illim (yeerk) and Serid (born Andalite), how they look at the moment:

Quote
His host is a six foot-tall human with a dark olive complexion and even darker eyes and hair, the latter of which is clipped short and curls at the ends. He looks simultaneously strong and gaunt, as if he gets enough to eat, but never sufficient protein.

They're currently in the Bar.

Sorry for my inactivity... I've been on other forums and busy with a few things. Can I just get a recap? Mainly of the following:

1] Major events that occurred at the bar
2] interactions with me
3] The most feasible or acceptable 'return' to the picture.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Cobra (Gymn) on December 30, 2010, 10:33:27 AM
1.)John, Bear, Claxter, Vogefac, Kurapor, Silver, and some Helmacrons chased Frederick into the forest. Vogefac got possessed again, but then he broke Frederick's hold on him permanently.
2.) None
3.) Spaced out, or just ignored the chase, people do that.

Gymn, can we please have a cease and desist on the bright yellow font? I think my eyes are starting to bleed. A dark yellow would work, I think, but the bright lemon clashes terribly with the blue background of the forum.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Myitt on December 30, 2010, 09:26:57 PM
Yes, I agree; Gymn, if you could change your font that'd be awesome, it's really bright!  Thanks :)

I think we shouldn't have any kind of sub-designation on the banners; feel free to keep the GESB banner but please remove senior member, Scinlao; no offense, but you've been here for a month.  We just don't want newcomers to get confused and ask for advice from people who just got here and might not know all the rules yet.

Sorry, we don't want to be all elitist, but it's just for the good of the group.  Those of us who have specific "veteran" or "elite" banners have been developing our characters in this scenario for at least two years, some of us for up to twelve years. 
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Luke Skywalker (Ossanlin) on December 30, 2010, 10:01:42 PM
Things are still under discussion, but I wanted to add something as well.

None of us wants to be the GESB Police, but you all need to obey the guidelines.  Okay, they're rules now.  I think we've been more than tolerant in waiting for some of you to adopt the correct method of posting, but there's a difference between having to adjust to a different way of writing and just not trying.  

Please post in 3RD PERSON!  Present tense is preferable, but past tense is acceptable.  This is right in the middle of the rules post guys.  Read them again.

i.e.  Instead of 'I walked up to the bar and the Bar Tender handed me a drink...'  (wrong)

           Write  '{character name} walks up to the bar and the Bar Tender hands him a drink.'  (right)

I won't name names...those of you who write in first person know who you are, and everyone else does too if they know two things about writing.  I'm not requesting that you change it, I'm telling you to change it ASAP.  It is very confusing to others who read your posts, especially if you have more than one character.  Writing in third person makes it easy to see which character is talking or acting, without the confusion brought on by multiple characters and without having to try and remember which character belongs to which player.  This problem is exacerbated by those of you who ditch characters after a couple of weeks and switch.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Fine with me. I'll make it so they can be saved if you'd like, though. I mentioned that before.

I've been thinking if you ever do get the amulet away from Fredrick, his soul might be contained within it too. The amulet will be the entryway to a pocket dimension. If Fredrick gets his soul back he'll be considerably less evil, but not really friendly either.

I mean he's not a real professional. He can still know enough about medicine to know how much stimulant to give a Human. It was just a joking remark, anyway. he knows first aide, but not a lot about seizures.

Not half, a quarter. :P

My guys ship is going to fire a miniaturized Dynamic G-space Harmonic Gravimetric Compression Pulse. G-Pulse ofr short. It pretty much crushes anything in it's radial path. It would not obliterate it, it would make everything flat –– including Frederick.

And there is a way to escape, you're going to be warned in advance. Plus, this will be my guys last event.

Is that ok?
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Myitt on January 02, 2011, 10:00:36 PM
Hmm...I guess I sort of imagine it as a bit bigger than the moon, with this being really the only spot with any real vegetation or civilization....but that's just me.  So knocking one-fourth of it off will screw with its orbit around its star, unless the bar has the power to fix that as well...

Besides, I don't want to interrupt both of my characters' interactions just because the place is being demolished...it is a bit powergamey guys, you might have to do away with how much damage this thing is going to create.  Can't you just zap the vampire, or something?

Yeah, but if something impacts the planetoid, it's going to screw up its orbit.  You can't just permanently change the surface and orbit of the place on which the bar is placed.

Besides, where IS Frederick?  Isn't he on the half of the planet where the bar and everyone else is?

Unless he's on the complete opposite side of the planet, I don't think this will work.  I'm sorry, but demolishing 1/4th of the planet will completely disrupt everyone else in the bar, and there's a BIG difference between flattening the trees and blowing a huge chunk of the planet off.

Cerulean! Hi!!!

Just so you know, my characters are currently outside of the bar. Terenia/Efaen are unconscious in Temrash's ship and Trey is hanging out by Elayne and Mar (KitsuneMarie and Shenmue's characters) in the shipyard.

Welcome aboard, Cerulean! :D

FYI, one of my characters, Tora (an Andalite female who is almost always in human morph) is outside the Bar on Myitt's ship. Elayne (human female) is talking with Mar and Trey in the shipyard. Illim (a Yeerk with a human-appearing host named Serid) is just outside the Bar talking on a communication device.

OK, here's the deal really quick. Vogefac's not dumb.

|  |  |  |  | ~ This is the meteorite in quarters.

|-•|  |  |  | ~ This is the location of the bar(•) and Frederick(-). Hypothetically.

|| |  |  | || ~ The shaded are is the quarter Vogefac will fire the G-pulse on so that he doesn't hit the bar.

–Or–

| •|  |- |  | ~ Coordinates

|  |  ||||  | ~ Area

Do you get what I'm conveying? If he's close to the bar, I'll get him with the edge of the G-Pulse. And it's more like flattening the trees. It flattens that side of the meteor, like Gymn and Mythica said. But, if it's still to much, yes. I can just have my ship fire a Phase'r or two, like Vogefac said.

Hey Cerulean, welcome to the bar, right when it's about to get blown to all hell! ;D

Of course, in this case it's a tad bit on the powergaming side, because it will probably kill everyone else in the bar, or at the very least disrupt everything that everyone else is doing.  

My characters are Myitt/Tara (grungy, blue jean and torn-up trench coat wearing snarky bastard of an Italian-American human-Controller, thoroughly exhausted, with bandages under her torn up jacket sleeves.  They're on Myitt's ship with Tora.) and Corliss/Michael (wearing a single piece black Yeerkish uniform, standard Imperial issue; Mike is from an industrial suburb of Liverpool, England, and he currently has a big cement-colored putty bandage plastered to the side of his bruised head.  Also exhausted.  In Temrash's ship with Terenia.)

Scinlao, bottom line:  Don't do anything that would conceivably cause the planetoid to go flying into its sun, flying into the planet it sometimes orbits, or that would KILL everyone on the planet.  Even if you flatten all the trees around the bar, what do you think that'll do to the fleshy meat bag people and their ships?  Even if you fire a giant laser beam from space to nuke half of the planetoid, what's going to happen to the rest of the people who will get nuked right along with the vampire dude?

Post by: Kitulean on January 03, 2011, 01:31:31 PM
Thanks, Myitt! It'll be good to have some kind of idea of who/what she's looking at soon.

And Scin, I'm pretty sure what everyone is pointing out is a couple things.

1: To have a weapon that powerful is, regardless of how you happen to use it, considered power gaming. It's like saying you have a laser rifle that can instantly shoot down the blade ship, but that you won't use it on anyone else. The issue isn't whether you're actively going around shooting it at everyone, it's that you have something that powerful and the only limitation you place on it/yourself is that you choose not to use it. That's like Superman's limitation being that he occasionally lets the bad guy get away. Not that there's anything wrong with being powerful, per se, but there are limitations.

2: What you're doing, flattening that much area, can't help but hurt/disrupt others outside of your immediate situation. 2A: Have you ever tried to flatten just one ant with your thumb when it's somewhat near others? You can't do it very well. 2B: What evidence do you have that it would even work? 2C: Doing that much damage will force everyone to pay attention to what you're doing, rather than allowing multiple scenes of action to take place in the same general area. Note how I had Vanessa yelling over the com randomly, and let other people decide if they heard her. And if no one had helped, as I said, I would have had her barely manage to land the thing without wrecking anyone else's situation.

Why not? Ants are evil creatures that serve no good purpose in our world. I used to like spraying the area around an ant bed with ant killer, then messing up the bed and watching them all run around. They wouldn't be able to get to me for the ant killer.

Has anyone else taken another bug and put it on a disturbed ant bed to see what they'd do? Catch a fly, tear off a wing, then feed it to the ants!

Cerulean, thanks for helping explain the situation :)  It's always nice to have someone with a bit more experience, like our unofficial mods (Teach, Ossanlin, Marie, Shenmue, and me), not to be elitist, but just to be able to explain some of the basics and reiterate when things start going awry.  Everyone here has different levels of dialogue writing experience and differently built characters, but we want to be welcoming and try to be the best writers/roleplayers as we can while not ruining anyone's fun.

Scinlao, no offense--and I'm not getting mad, just a little frustrated.  It's fun to have a big powerful gun that can smash holes in things, but I think more of us are here for character development and interesting side situations--not for huge fights and blowing the place to smithereens.

At least...not most of the time  ::)

So please try to think realistically about how a big laser being shot at a planetoid will affect everyone else.  Also Chad, keep your vampire guy in check--if he takes a big laser to destroy, or the demolition of half a planet, and even then he just vanishes to his "sanctuary"--how the heck can anyone else (especially meatbag characters with nothing but fists and regular guns--most of us here) even possibly hope to destroy him?  Thanks for understanding.

We're really not trying to be mean Scinlao, honestly.  I know we've been a little harsh lately but that's just because of our frustration.  Demolishing half of the planetoid would affect everything, there's no way around that.  If you insist upon doing it, and I only say this as caution, we'll probably just ignore it and go on as if nothing happened, because we will say that nothing has happened, and what we say goes.  Like I said, not trying to be mean, just giving precautions.

Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: RAFrukh on January 03, 2011, 06:43:20 PM
Good way to put it, thanks Gymn. Like I said Myitt, I could've hit Frederick with the EDGE of the pulse so that it doesn't hit the bar. Or, I could've found a way to focus the beam. But I just demolished the idea. My ship is not going to be able to complete it's power-up, due to recent damage.

But, now, BEFORE I go ahead and do this, I have to ask: Is it ok if my ship has a cloak? That way I can follow above Artemis and sneak up on Frederick. It may even give frederick time to 'enslave' artemis, if that is the plan.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion

As far as I'm concerned a cloaking device is fine.  My yacht has a cloaking device, and a cloaking device won't affect everyone in the RP.  There may be some people with the ability to sense your ship through the cloak, I don't know Chad's capabilities, he might be able to sense life-forms...but see it doesn't affect everyone, so go for it.

As long as you just try to hit Frederick, and do not flatten a quarter of the planetoid, then go ahead--it wasn't clear that you were using the edge of a beam or pinpointing the vampire, from your description of flattening a quarter of the bar's landscape with a steamroller.

A cloak is fine.

I have to admit, I was a little scared there for a moment. I was having a hard time understanding what was wrong. But, I get it now.

Even though  I would be be "using the edge of a beam or pinpointing the vampire", I think I'll just stick with the cloak and phase'rs now. :)

Oh, and just so we're not confused about phase'rs too :P

These are not Star Trek phase'rs. Neither are they lasers. It stands for PHASE Rotillum. It's something I came up with when I was younger. First, I invented the projectile Flak Rotillum. Rotillum is a latin derivative, from robum(power, strength) and tellum(weapon). It is a projectile that saps shields, and then detonates on the hull. The Phase Rotillum is the same principle, but for the fact that it is an energy weapon. It's orangey-yellow, like star trek phasers(PHASEd Energy Rectification). The are more powerful than Lasers, but not as accurate.

And as Nefenok was trying to tell Vogefac, cloaking sapped their energy, and all they have for firing these now is Manual Targetting. So, as long as Frederick keeps moving, he should be able to keep safe. although the heat from phase friction and kinetic friction might singe him a bit. :P. Reptilinod have remarkable reflexes.

lmao, Luke. Wow.

Chad, it's hard to say. Honestly I haven't been paying much attention to Fredrick's battles because they haven't really involved me and I'm not big into the "let's all brawl!" thing. That's one of the reasons I knocked Terenia out early when the first battle got started. I'm at the bar more for character development than for bar fights (for the most part).

It was mostly just a friendly reminder. If you create a character for the purpose of "being a villain" to everyone in the bar, you have to accept the fact that most people in the bar will want to and probably try to kill him or her. Meaning they won't be very long-lived characters, most likely. Which is one of the problems of having a character that exists solely for being an antagonist. That, and there's not much chance to develop them. Also, they are mean. :P

Question for Mythica and Myitt(Ossanlin, Terenia or whoever): Can/Should I beam Artemis out of there? My ship is equipped with that. Frederick would still have a hold on Artemis, but i could put her in some containment field. Or I could just say Vogefac was to scared or excited to remember about beaming her up. He does that...:P

if he dies now, Silver will never get her soul back. I'm thinking about how the other characters will have to go in and get it, and they'll also find Fred's soul. Maybe they'll rescue him, and Fredrick won't be evil anymore. He won't be really friendly, but he won't be evil either.

I really didn't plan for him to die shortly after making him.

Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion

They go into the amulet around his neck....

Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: RAFrukh on January 05, 2011, 11:28:36 AM
....

Ok, so if I could vaporize/obliterate/blow him to kingdom come, would his soul automatically go into the amulet as well???

See where I'm going?
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on January 05, 2011, 11:55:37 AM
No. If you destroy the amulet, then you just won't be able to get into the pocket dimension that the amulet leads to. It's more of a portal opener than a container. Fred's soul is already in the pocket dimension, which is why he serves The One. You'll need to steal the amulet to save Silver's soul. Also possibly Fredrick's. I like the character, and don't want him to die, but realize I should have been much more subtle with him.

It would have been a lot better if he was more secretive about what he was doing, and hadn't acted openly until much later.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: RAFrukh on January 05, 2011, 12:03:10 PM
What I mean is, if I destroy his BODY, could I retrieve His and Artemis's souls from the intact amulet?

The torpedo is only...3 feet long. Usually in a addition to manual targeting I would give it targte tracing technology, but since the Zetylon is already so close, that wouldn't be fair to Frederick. :P
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on January 05, 2011, 12:08:49 PM
Oh, right. Yeah, it would work. As long as you can kill one without destroying the other. The amulet isn't exactly made of diamond.

Edit: Besides, if anyone decides to save Fredrick's soul, he's going to need a body to go back to.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: RAFrukh on January 05, 2011, 12:12:19 PM

Because it is primarily an Animorphs roleplay.

Other characters are allowed, but the roleplay has always been intended as taking place in an Animorphs themed environment. That's one of the reasons we can't have a Super Saiyan wander in.

Animorphs is the reason this bar exists, it is the primary reason it is around and the majority of the customers come from Aniverses.

 :edit:


See, a long time ago, there were a bunch of middle school students who were obsessed with a book series you might be familiar with. Upon finding each other on the internet, they began to immerse themselves further into the series by creating characters and investigating the less-explored aspects of the books. They would chat for hours and hours; thus, the original Galaxy's Edge Space Bar was born.

Now in college and the working world, some of the original members decided to recreate the GESB at RAF, although it has been modified to fit forum-style posting. Even though characters from other universes are welcome to join, it is -- at its heart -- an Animorphs-inspired and Animorphs-driven role play.

Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Myitt on January 05, 2011, 06:42:45 PM
Which is why I think a lot of us are kind of just...ignoring most of the non-Animorphs stuff.

Sorry to be blunt guys, but it's true.  You know, there is a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy bar thread that Estelore started a while back, if you guys wanted to you could always move over there.  It seems like it's a bit more suited to a broader amount of characters from Hitchhiker's Guide, Animorphs, and other original universes.

http://animorphsforum.com/forum/index.php?topic=3547.0

Or, you could always make a General Roleplay RPG.

You're all welcome to stay of course, but it's just a suggestion.  
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: RAFrukh on January 05, 2011, 07:12:59 PM
I think I might try that. If you don't mind though, I'd like to finish with Vogefac here, take him over there, and keep playing Dyvinia here.

I was planning to kcik Vogefac once this mission was done anyways. This way, I can keep him going. But I'd like to bring him back some time from now if you don't mind. Like, he comes back, and leaves, and comes back. That kind of thing. Not very often though.

The question implies a few things...not least of which is the obvious: Is he a security risk?  But also hidden in the question is...can we keep him, can we, huh?

That is a ridiculously cute post. XD

But I promise I'll take care of him!

"That was literally the way he saw it spelled" is the correct usage here. You only use "seen" if the the word "has" or "have" is in front of it. Like...."We have seen it spelled that way".

He went back to help Corliss and get Efaen restrained, and then he opened the door for Vanessa. I guess he could have just remained in the ship. I could edit my post to say he turned back.

As they entered the bar, Vanessa looked around the place. "Huh. It's kind of... well, not what I expected from a super duper space bar." Then she paused. "I'm just going to say space pub from now on, so it doesn't sound like I'm describing a nifty keyboard."

Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion

Up to you, I guess. It depends on the reasoning behind him becoming morph capable. Terenia was a nothlit who became morph capable again, but only after years of intense and painful experiments courtesy of the Andalites.

You know, if Soul Silver finds her body within sight of gaz's ship, and her body falls unconscious with fredrick beside it, that would be the perfect time for Morgan to come out and see them. better yet, Fredrick can pick her up to put her somewhere comfortable, and Morgan can see him with his hands on her.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Midnight_Huntress on January 09, 2011, 01:15:23 AM

Silver's sould does not have the scars but her physical body does.


And that would be good timing. Crappy for Fredrick but drama wise it would be awesome... And then Silver would eventually wake up and have to defend him which will throw Morgan helter-skelter......let's do it for plot twists sake! XD

Puk is interrupted as The S.S. BeastHammer stands up, dramatically. Its tiny tinny voice tinkles, "We are the S.S. BeastHammer, uncrowned king vessel of the Glorious Helmacron Empire!" It leaps onto the table, pointing a threatening finger in all directions. "The future comes on swift wings! Its proboscis swollen with acid and its billion eyes-" something whirs in the leg of the Chee android chassis the ship has been welded to, and the S.S. BeastHammer falls to the floor with a loud clank.

I was going through the thread, and I found this. :XD:

Thanks. I appreciate that. If I am given a good enough description I can draw your characters for those who said they couldn't. I dpnt mind but you must give me time and patience.

Actually, I wouldn't mind drawing anyones' non-humanoid characters. I'm horrible at people, I've ben drawing animals all my live... :(

And I think Frederick and Vogefac are noth heading to the forest to look for him or something...
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on January 11, 2011, 11:29:25 AM
Fredrick is near Morgan's ship, actually, and Gaz can have him come out and notice any time.

I always imagined Jagill as a battle worn Hork-Bajir that's big and buff even by Hork-Bajir standards. He has a big scar on his chest, and a few more here and there. If you draw him, a battle stance would be cool.

As for Claxter, he's around Ax's age. I haven't thought up any particular features for him. Just your average young Andalite. Maybe give him a bit of a nervous look.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: RAFrukh on January 11, 2011, 11:31:47 AM
Ok, I'll get to work on that during lunch. :).

Unless you were specifically asking Mythica. Andalites do have a humanoid upper body. But if you were talking to me, I think I can deal with it. :P

Here's mine. I had a heck of a time on the front legs and arms, and I'm still not pleased with the hand. I think he's a little stumpy...but I hope you'll like it. :).

I'll get to work on Jagill later...and I should do better on a reptile than this Andalite... :'(

How big is his scar, and what color do you want Hork-Bajir Inflammation to be?

Phew! *wipes off sweat*

I think I'm getting somewhere a lot better with Jagill, but I'm taking a break from him for a while.

How big is that scar on his chest? What color do you want Hork-Bajir blood/inflammation to be?
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on January 11, 2011, 02:09:06 PM
Oh yeah, I forgot to answer that. Well it comes from an Andalite ramming his blade through Jagill's chest, so it would probably be a fair size, and somewhat star shaped instead of just a slash. maybe able a quarter the size of his chest. As for a color, I'm not sure. Brown?
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: RAFrukh on January 11, 2011, 02:13:58 PM
Ok, I'll see what I can do...just a suggestion? Something more exotic than brown? How about...purple? or Yellow?

Also, Chad: To make sure we're clear, you ARE joining the HG2G crossover thread as Frederick right? And if so, you're coming with me in my ship?

If the answer to both of these is yes, I have yet another question(try not to kill me yet): Would you mind if a year or two had passed before we arrived at the 'Restaurant at the edge of the Universe'? Vogefac will need to spend at least 2 months with his superiors in the Authority, and then heading to the restaurant, considering that the Universe is a pretty big place, will take some time to get to.

btw, this is pretty much what Reptilinod transporter technology looks like(skip to 3:17 and 4:39): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYCIOO6Itss&feature=related

Just so you know, I plan for Vogefac to stop by now and again. So, I thought I'd explain the reason why he was a Lieutenant Colonel while he was here, and now he's a Commodore...time. In his reality, time goes a teensy weeny bit faster, plus he's a member of delta generation which gives him mental discipline that helps him go far. Vogefac has gone through 11 months to get to the Restaurant at the End of the Universe. WITHIN those 11 months he did a many great things(With Frderick's help too), and got promoted twice, to Commodore....just so you know if he ever comes back. :)

I don't think Hork-Bajir tails are prehensile, are they? I might be wrong, but I don't remember them ever being used as an extra support or limb in the series. I thought they served mostly the purpose of providing balance while leaping from tree to tree.

Like I said, I could be wrong. I honestly don't remember. It just doesn't seem to fit with the physiology of the Hork.

Ok, I can't stay away, the bar is to addictive...  :andalite: :controller:

Character name: Unit Theta-4577 of Adjunct Pi-675810(a.k.a., Theta-Pi), originally Gremytt-Pekulon-Thelan
Character Species: The Alvie(Cyborg Unimatrix), originally a member of the Andalite species.
Character Ship: Theta-457 Transport 01
Appearance: 5'3" exact, gray-blue color, extended tail-blade, nanoprobe injectors
Bio: Taken from his race at the age of 2 andalite years old, Gremytt is now a collectively controlled pawn of the Alvie –– a Cyborg Unimatrix. All traces of individuality cut from him, his 'job' now is to inject nanoprobes into other individuals to cyborg-ize them, and make them part of the collective. He has been in the Collective approximately 1 andalite year now...

Ok...I feel better now...  :thumbsup:

WB, Scinlao :)

I hope you don't mind... I'd like to give my two cents about your new character. I would suggest that you not cut all traces of individuality from Theta-Pi, as the main purpose of the Bar is to explore characters' personalities and their interactions with others. Maybe I'm misunderstanding what you mean in your description, but I just worry that this'll turn into an episode of Theta-Pi tracking down every living person in the Bar to try to inject them, which would leave the GESB full of nothing but mindless drones... something that doesn't sound super-fun to me. I'd prefer my characters' minds and personalities to stay intact. :P I'm probably extrapolating too far out of unfounded fears, but anyway... my two cents, like I said. :)
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: RAFrukh on January 28, 2011, 10:28:07 AM
My plot was: Theta-Pi crashes, and the damage + friction from the crash makes their emitters malfunction, so disconnecting them(Him and crew and ship) from the collective, and forcing them t rebuild their personalities. XD

Also, Alvie are "conceited". So they dn't feel the need to move fast when they assimilate, allowing time to deflect the injector tubules, or evade the affront.

What characters did you have before? would I remember them?

Since Fredrick didn't work out, I may try something else. Maybe I'll give Helmacrons a try. It will be a crew that pilots the MASSIVE battleship that can transform from a ship to a Helmacron form. It's main weapon will be the HYPER DESTRUCTOR BEAM. And by massive ship I mean two to three feet tall. And by hyper destruction beam I mean about as powerful as a handheld dracon or shredder.  Would that be ok, Myitt, Oss, or Terenia? I'll try not to screw this one up.

Haha! Agreed. Although that's not a bad idea...I mean, uh, yea, never, no.  ;).

Yep, he's been accidentally disconnected from the collective. Now he's just really confused, and it will take some time for him to become his old self again. He does have the morphing ability, but it's not like he's an estreen or anything. He can't morph his cyborg parts, so the collective never allowed him to morph.

Going back to 'Marie's post, a character like this can actually have a richer personality. The emotional strife caused by assimilation, and recuperation makes for amazing plot lines, especially if you do it right. The passage of time, as the character heals from their violation can be lavishly captivating. :XD:

@Chad29: Just to clear something up, when Theta says "we", it really means I. There is no individual, as I've said, in the Unimatrix. They all work as a whole. So "We" does not mean I'm taking control of your character. :)

I've crashed a pretty good distance from the bar, as in, it will take Iosse at least an hour or so to make it there if he ran in the right direction. Also, are there any animals on the asteroid? Birds, rodents, fish... anything?

Note: I won't eat anyone without asking permission first. ;D
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Terenia on January 30, 2011, 12:54:16 PM
Wow, Iosse must be one strong Taxxon to have crash landed without bursting like a water balloon.

There are some animals in the woods. Only insects have ever been referenced directly, but other small creatures are plausible enough. In my mind the planetoid becomes more "alive" the closer you get to the bar, which would be a good reason for Iosse to head in that direction.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Bear on January 30, 2011, 12:58:39 PM
He didn't completely burst (it wasn't a head-on into the ground crash... more like a plane crash-landing, but still), but he did get several injuries. I know that Taxxons can regenerate any limbs they lose, and I'm extrapolating while I assume that they heal quickly in general. In a cannibalistic society like theirs, I see that as a must-have. Also... he's unconscious. Which is why he didn't eat himself. :P

I have always imagined Temrash being one of the biggest threats to the Council, back when I first thought him up. However I guess it's more realistic if he's not quite as big a threat as he thinks he is. I hadn't really thought much of it, but it seems Teach did. Myabe he needs reven's group more than he thinks because they have more experience acting subversively. He's only been a rebel for about a year.

Post by: Terenia on January 30, 2011, 05:02:44 PM

Sorry, I didn't mean to belittle Temrash, but in all honesty, the Empire probably deals with defectors a lot. Most likely aren't as highly ranked as Temrash, but still I think that they would defer the problem to someone beneath them. The Council is more like bureaucrats than generals.

But it's perfectly reasonable for Temrash to think he's the biggest threat ever to the Council. Vissers (and former Vissers) have a tendency to be a big big-headed, so that's not far of a stretch. My concern was that you were making it seem as if Temrash, who is just one guy, and his 'connections' are more of a threat than the rebellion or the Peace Movement, which I don't think is necessarily realistic.

She had a baby, that tends to take up your time x3  Plus she's addicted to WoW ;D

But the "friend" she was referring to in the first post is little old me, we were talking about how much we missed the Space Bar and...well, the rest is history!

Considering that Keshin is Imperial and Myitt is as well, we can readily assume that events in this world happened quite differently than they did in Animorphs Prime.

Yeah, I think the consensus is that there is a back door :)  I always imagined it as being set pretty far behind the bar, down a hallway with storage and whatnot.  And in the area behind the bar, there is a player piano.  In my mind.  No one plays it, it's covered with dust...for good reason...x3

If Temrash's ship can translate spoken speech into Yeerkish ultrasonic speech, then why can't a communicator translate thought-speech?  I'm sure the Yeerks took the technology from Andalites, anyway, and surely they'd want to know if an Andalite was calling...perhaps to surrender... ;D

And actually, in book 2 Visser Three speaks to Chapman through a Yeerkish communicator-hologram type thing; the thought-speech was just translated into audio.

Figured I'd ask first, but..
May I be in the roleplay too? ^^ I've read the beginning Do's and Don'ts' of this particular OOC thread, plus I have experience RPing before, even being an Admin of a Roleplaying Forum at one point too. I do understand Godmodding, despise it, and I LOVE character development. (I try to stay away from being angsty though, which is often mistaken for the same thing!)

I know character sheets aren't really needed YET, but I've put this one here for refrencing if need be.
http://animorphsforum.com/forum/index.php?topic=7396.0
A small note I may have forgotten to mention.. Because honestly, it's NEED TO KNOW information.. But just in case any of you are electrically-sensative, (and i mean VERY sensative,) one might feel a higher electrical charge nearer to my character, as her necklace (a crystal on a string underneath her shirt) is the source of her energy. Again, need-to-know. It can't be removed by the way. ^^

Welcome aboard Saphire! You are, of course, welcome to join! I only skimmed over your character sheet (I like to find things out about characters naturally as they interact within the bar), but she looks interesting! Here's a quick overview of my characters so that you know where in the bar they are positioned:

Terenia/Efaen: They appear Andalite (female, young adult). Terenia just left one of the ships in the shipyard with Corliss (appears human) and Ossanlin (Andalite) and is heading to yet another ship.

Trey: Appears human (young - about 14 years old), is sitting alone at one of the tables in the bar drinking a Coke and staring off into space.

I'll let everyone else post for the location of their own characters. I look forward to rping with you!

Hi Saphire, and welcome!

I'll give the same favor as Terenia: I currently have three characters in the GESB. Serid appears to be a human male, and he is the host for a Yeerk named Illim. They are currently in the ship yard heading towards their ship. Elayne is a human female, sitting at a table by herself in the Bar.

Hi Saphire, welcome to the GESB! 

The only characters I have in the bar right now are Corliss Three-Eight-Two (a Yeerk) and his host Mike Leicester (a pale white British man, in his late twenties, with messy black hair, brown eyes and a five o'clock shadow.  Hard to shave in this place :P  He's wearing a black, standard-issue Imperial Yeerk uniform).

Corliss/Mike are currently outside the bar, in the Yeerkish Skimmer ship (like a big metal mosquito larva with pincered arms) which is parked in a clearing in the woods in front of the bar. 

Thanks for reading the rules, sounds like you're a veteran :D

Post by: Luke Skywalker (Ossanlin) on February 06, 2011, 04:24:51 AM
Bonjour Saph, welcome.  :)  

My only character at the bar currently is an andalite War-Prince named Ossanlin-Rethin-Sephirel  (Everyone calls him Ossanlin, or if they're friends, sometimes Oss or Ossy.)  He's a bit more than just an andalite, but your char. will have to find out how through interaction.  (Or you can go back and read 500 pages of posts.  :p ) 

He's trotting along with Corliss (Myitt's char) and Terenia/Efaen (Terenia's (T)) char. towards Corliss' ship outside.

I have three characters. A Yeerk named Temrash and his host Jagill who are in a ship. Then Claxter an Andalite who is outside. Actually I had him rush to his ship to get your ship out of the lake. Temrash didn't hear the crash.

On topic: It pains me to do this to her. XD She's not ADD, she's not spastic.. she's actually pretty calm. But DANG does her mind move fast!
=P If you haven't figured it out yet, (I'm sure you all have,) She has NO PRACTICE thought-speaking. Everything she's observing, thinking, or wondering is broadcast- for all to hear! Which, when I type it, comes across as INSANELY spastic. Her body language however is calm, curious.. But calm. IN her head? She's freaking out. XD

All of this WOULD be fine, dandy and normal.. But she's in the vacinity of Yeerks and Andialites.. XD who hear her mentally talking to herself. Oooo this'll be interesting.

Hey, Saph, if it helps you figuring out when you can hear thought-speak and when you can't, the general rule of thumb we go by is that < stuff in these brackets > is open thought-speak...so as long as you are near enough you can hear it. <<Stuff in double brackets>> is private thought-speak and only the person it is being directed toward can hear it.

XD nice. EDIT: Also, I don't intend to have anyone save for the andialites/yeerks/otherthoughtspeakingbodies to hear HER thoughtspeak.. My take on it is- She's unpracticed. So thought-speaking individuals will "hear" her thinking "out loud". Humans/normal people who don't normally talk that way shouldn't hear her pro'lly, 'cause it's never been a problem BEFORE.. Get my drift, or am I not making sense here.. ^^;

Also Terenia: Thanks! That actually helps quite a bit. Thought-speak is odd. =P
(hence my poking fun at it. X3)

Post by: Stephquiem on February 08, 2011, 11:36:59 AM
Er... actually, I don't get how that works. :P Being unfamiliar with thoughtspeak doesn't make you unable to hear it? ...Since she's not directing it at anyone. XD And it's not like you CAN be unfamiliar with it while being at a bar with people who use it all the time. :P

Thought speak is just like audible speech in several ways. <In these brackets, like Terenia said, anyone within range can hear it, regardless of whether or not they can make thought speech> Anyone can hear it, but not everyone can send it. <<Private thoughtspeak can only be heard by those it was directed to.>> So even though Iosse can't create/send/use thoughtspeak, he can hear you perfectly fine.
XD nice. EDIT: Also, I don't intend to have anyone save for the andialites/yeerks/otherthoughtspeakingbodies to hear HER thoughtspeak.. My take on it is- She's unpracticed.

Again, anyone can hear it, unless you are restricting it to a smaller group or individual. I don't think that Andalites, etc, who use thought speak are more aware of/more likely to notice thoughtspeak than those who aren't..... at least, I don't think so.....

Here's hoping that helps, though I think I'm just repeating stuff... ::)

=/ hmn. Well my train of thought goes like this.. She was on Earth for several years. Humans could never "read her mind" before.
And Saph can NOT use thought-speak. At least, not consiously. She has a serious.. Mental Skill impediment, let's say. XD No matter what, you'll never see her correctly using it in this thread.. She just can't!
So, in my head, she's talking in her own head ALL THE TIME. this means that those that listen to what others say loudly in their HEADS can hear this.. Andialites and yeerks to name a few. She's not really 'directing' it at anyone- It's being broadcast. Like a radio. =/ I do understand what you guys are saying about HOW it works- I was just trying to put a bit of a spin off of it and laugh at my char at the same time. Mental Skill is her greatest weakness.

No, it doesn't bother me... I think I'm just so deeply indoctrinated by Animorphs style thought-speak that my brain insists on making it line up with the series' version, but your character doesn't have to follow the same rules.

Saph--But if she can't use thought-speech, then even if she's "broadcasting" her thoughts, it doesn't seem like it'd be able to be picked up by anyone other than some kind of mind reader.  Just because Andalites and Yeerks (only when in hosts) can "hear" thought-speech, which seems like a particular kind of mental ability, doesn't mean they can read people's minds or hear any other kind of mental broadcast.

So....what does that mean? :P  ::)  What do you think?  She's your character...either she uses thought-speech, or she's a telepath in some other sense, or no one can hear her thoughts unless they have telepathic powers (which I believe no one does currently).
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on February 09, 2011, 12:16:35 AM
If you're going to have it be different, I'd say let it be a different kind of telepathy. The workings of thought speech is too ingrained in our minds for your confusing explanations.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Saphire on February 09, 2011, 12:31:25 AM
XD I'm all too happy to drop it guys- she's a completely different character without 'em.
She dosen't have telepathic powers, so that's a HUGE no,
and since there are no, ah.. by your definition, Telepaths.. Then that's a no too.

I guess my problem was.. =/ I figured since they COULD Thought-speak, that MADE them telepaths. I mean.. That makes sense to me!! XD
But nah- It's getting tedious anyway. =P It's also hindering the RP- I type faster without it.

Salem is, in fact, human, though he's not from the Animorphs universe originally. As for the clicky thingy- he sort of explained it to Mar a little while ago.

He glanced down at his device. "I'm growing to like this thing. Snagged it off a Skrit Na trader a few years back. It's not taking pictures of what things look like. It's taking pictures of what they are. Sort of a composite of the mental, emotional and spiritual projections of a being, laid out as cold hard data. For example," he continued, "I should be able to tell who's a Yeerk, since they contain multiple distinct beings. I already know what an Andalite looks like, which makes finding a morphed one a little easier; not that I've ever really thought about using it for that until getting here. I can see ties and nuances that people may not even realize they have." He smiled sheepishly. "I actually have no idea how to interpret most of it, but it's still interesting stuff.

Basically it just takes pictures of a person's... aura, I guess you'd call it. He's really just gathering whatever information he can over there.

OMG, I am so sorry for taking forever... :(

Yes, the first stage is the injection of nanoprobes. The process where they conjoin and form subcutaneous(a few rupture from inside you...just a warning :P) transponders, controllers, etc., would take about...20 seconds max. The nanoprobe's priority would be to create the cranial interplexing beacon, which would take about 5 seconds in itself. Once the beacon activates, in about .7 seconds after it's assembled, it would take about...2 seconds for the collective interlink to activate, and another for you to lose control of your free will. So all in all, about 8.7 seconds to lose emotion.

You'll still have a will for about a day or two, until you are "broken", to put it mildly. At that point most give in entirely to the collective.

(Nerdgasm, sry...)

Yo Chad- That thing that Claxter fired- what is it? Some type of gun? >.>
Yes, Chad's right. It's technology developed by Theta's Alvie collective. It's usually used for engineering and fixing things, but it can be useful for putting a target out of operation. :P

It stores mass in a quantum state inside the 'gun', allowing for storage of even large things several times over in a small handheld device.

Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: RAFrukh on February 15, 2011, 11:26:22 AM
Actually, the mechanics of the Hyperstore indicate that a malfunction would make it impossible to get out. If, for instance, the Universal Interlink Port(UIP, kind of like a sci-fi USB) on the hyperstore GUN were damaged, and so it couldn't connect to the computers, it wouldn't release all the contents. The nature of the Hyperstore gun disables the function of release. It can only empty it's contents into a nominal hyperstore container, and THAT can release it's contents.

On a lesser thought, my dragon is ALL GROWN UP!!! XD

Anyone with a Human character, or Human controller can interact with Derrel, since I had him go up to the nearest Human looking person. I don't really care who it is, but it would be his worst luck for it to be Mar.

Thank you, Goku, for having such an entrance. ^_^ I was thinking "too soon! She can't finish the straw castle now, I don't want to have to handle both of them yet!" Not that Fiona will be around for very long after that...

(((I don't know what the bartender knows so could some one please type up his response.  Thanks.)))

The bartender's knowledge-base seems to vary a little bit based on who's posting for him, but I think it tends to usually center around this:

He knows how to get you a drink, or food; basically anything you ask for. He knows how to take your money in payment, pretty much regardless of the currency. He's not very good at collecting on tabs. And any information not related to running his bar seems to illicit a blank stare at best.

Any GESB-veterans care to amend or correct that?

Although it isn't outright stated, or hasn't been recently, and he isn't technically in the bar--my character Reven's host James is from Canada ;D  Calgary, to be exact.

Temrash can get Tayliss the Kandrona she needs, but of course once she's in the pool he won't let her take her host back involuntarily. Whether she meets him and figures out he won't let her retake a voluntary host before she leaves is up in the air.

Corliss could help, but it's a similar situation to Temrash.

Temrash is actually not in the building, though, so Tayliss will have to go outside to see him.

In the bar currently... lessee. Salem and Mar are at a table. Keshin, Elayne and Trey are... at the bar itself, I think? Illim and Derrel are having a conversation. Vlad is at the bar looking for help with his dilemma. Fiona, of course, Taylis has already been talking to. If Saph's still around, her character's at the bar. Bear's lying under a table. Am I missing anyone?

I'm pretty sure everyone else is off somewhere else at the moment.

Corliss could help, but it's a similar situation to Temrash.

Actually, that all depends.  Corliss might be able to help even if her host is involuntary, if he's given enough of a reason for them to stay together.  He once had several involuntary hosts including Mike, and call it a fault but he understands the need to return to a host despite his strong convictions against involuntary host-taking in general.  It all depends on rationale.

Post by: Chad32 on February 24, 2011, 11:11:12 AM
Efaen is a typical Andalite. Not someone I'd like, but still not as unlikeable as Terenia. Like Temrash said, Efaen could still function well in her society. Bigotry is not something that causes you to harm yourself and others, as long as you're around people you like being around.

I thought about if there was a situation where Efaen thought she needed to pay Temrash back for what he did. He'd wind up just asking her to do something like getting him a drink. I don't know if she'd be satisfied with that, though.

Edit: Actually I shouldn't have has derrel say Andalite. He doesn't know the name of the species. I edited it to have him just say aliens.

Yeah, Efaen's kinda a b-word.

But so is Terenia, just for different reasons. Efaen is a product of her society. Terenia is a product of her experiences. Both are tragic in their own way, but you really wouldn't want to invite either of them to supper.

Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Nero's Fury on February 27, 2011, 07:53:44 PM
Well like it said he now has full power again, but his body is still extremely damaged. And hitting the ship like that is still causing him pain, not as much cuz he isnt a complete solid. And the other thing about the vampires from the book i was reading, is when in shadow form theyre energy is drained, and the longer in that form it will end up just draining their lives. He sounds extremely powerful but thats because i couldnt state his powers and weaknesses with no character sheet
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Myitt on February 27, 2011, 08:13:06 PM
Right, no character sheets are required, but it's stated in the rules that your character can't powergame.  Having the ability to heal almost any wound instantly is treading into some sketchy waters, so just try and keep that power reigned in.  Thanks for cooperating.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Nero's Fury on February 27, 2011, 08:25:55 PM
Im confused...how is it he is healing instantly? He is still in excrutiating pain and is still broken all over. The blood just boosts the adrenaline level in their blood stream taking along the virus of the vampirisim to the wounds healing it faster then humans but they still are slow to heal
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Aluminator (Kit) on February 27, 2011, 08:37:15 PM
Yeah, Goku, the standard character in this bar is still human, or maybe Andalite at best, in terms of abilities. Salem's a crafty dude carrying some funky weapons, but he's still human- if he'd taken a shot like the one Goku just did, he'd be dead, not slamming the ship with well-beyond-human abilities. Superpowered beings tend to have a pretty crazy advantage in this setting. I think what Myitt's trying to say is just try not to make him overpowered for the bar.

Jeeze, you guys and your geezer characters. Here I thought Salem was old because he's 46-ish. Or 44. Or 39. Or 23. Depending on how you decide to define his age. It's a little freaky ambiguous. If you wanted to get really technical, you could tack a few thousand years on to any one of those, too, but then it just starts to look really hazy.

At least I don't really have to deal with Earth culture with him. No history for him to know. He doesn't even speak an Earth language (Fiona'd probably be surprised by that :P), aside from maybe a few words of French.

Slow to heal?  In ten minutes?

Slowly staggering to his feet, Vlad grit his teeth against the excrutiating pain.

Understandable, after a blow to the HEART with a laser beam...

Quote
I need blood to be able to fully heal, he thought to himself as he already felt most of the wounds slowly healing.

So he'll heal almost completely without any interference.  

Quote
In ten minutes i will be ready...but i dont have time for that! he thought to himself as he turned and increasingly more painful began limping into the trees further, looking for a source of blood.

A deer! Ignoring the pain Vlad lept onto the buck and sank his teeth into its neck.

Ignoring the pain and leaping onto the deer.  Ignoring the horrible, excruciating pain and the broken body.

That sort of thing isn't exactly ignorable.

Quote
''Much better. Full power, and my body will be healed faster," he murmured, and invisioned his shadow form and morphed the swirling mass of shadow matter into a bird form, where he flew back to the ship as fast as possible.

So even at full power, with his senses regained, but with excruciating knock-you-down pain and 'broken all over', he can still morph into some kind of shadow and fly around as fast as possible.

Quote
Hitting the ship so hard as to leave a dent, he allowed himself to split and reconverge on the opposite side where he began flying around to attack again.

And hit a metal ship so hard he dents it, and continues to attack.  I'm sorry, these are just not reasonable for someone who is badly injured the way you describe it.  That, plus the insta-healing power, is really borderline powergaming.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Nero's Fury on February 27, 2011, 10:40:05 PM
I never said after the ten mins hed be COMPLETELY healed. And when in need of blood Vampires do the unexpected all the time. Ive read enough vampiric style books to no that. And the shadow mass ability is one from a book i read recently, where it is part of their genetics. For example, the animorphs were hit by dracons n were dying but could focus enough to morph and they were human! So i guess that the idea of HUMAN CHILDREN over coming fatal pain is acceptable, but a DEMONIC SUPERNATURAL BEING? No ur right totally to farfetched.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Myitt on February 27, 2011, 10:44:24 PM
Overcoming fatal pain long enough to completely demorph is one thing.  Overcoming excruciating, crippling pain to start doing backflips and healing automatically, even if not completely, is far-fetched.  Even if your character is a vampire, it gives no weight, no reality to his predicament if he will eventually heal it all away with no problem.  Even the Animorphs struggled to get out of their dire situations, and to be honest, after a while even that cheapened the effect of having their lives in real danger.

If you keep up your attitude and your over the top character behavior, you'll be asked to leave the roleplay.  Sorry, those are the rules.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Nero's Fury on February 27, 2011, 10:51:05 PM
I didnt mean to appear as to having an attitude, quite the opposite. I was just stating my side, as u urself did. U used caps so i was like ok well ill use em to. And i apologize if i had him doing flips while he was healing..all i remember was saying he limped away and jumped ontop of a deer. And still back to the matter of healing, im just really confused. They always are capable of healing in novels, so why not in an RPG? N again im honestly not trying to appear rude, if i do i apologize, im just trying to argue my side of the case just as u were
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Myitt on February 27, 2011, 10:58:30 PM
Well Goku, thanks for being a little more reasonable, but the thing is that this isn't a vampire RPG--it's an Animorphs-based one with mostly mortal characters, mostly human even, and those that have special abilities like Mar or Ossanlin can only use them very sparingly.  They also can't heal themselves using supernatural powers. 

The point is, everyone here has to adhere to general rules of realism, because of what their characters are.  That way everyone's on a relatively level playing field, and there isn't an unfair advantage to any one person.  Al's right, if my characters got hit with that shot they'd be dead--and probably disintegrated.  Even if they had survived somehow, they'd be down and bleeding on the ground, not jumping deer and flying and denting spaceships. 

See what I mean?  If you want to play a vampire with super abilities, then make a vampire RPG.  Otherwise, tone down your character's abilities so it's fair if anyone else does get in a fight with him.  The bar is a place that focuses less on fighting and more on character development.  When fights happen, the normal laws of physics and injury in real life still apply.

She went to a government academy at 14. They experimented on her, getting her brain to be even more powerful than it was. Now she has the brain-power of over 300 scientists, mathematicians, and artists.

Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Midnight_Huntress on March 01, 2011, 01:46:48 PM
Haha well umm close.

The central Govrenment took Silver from her parents when she was about five-ish. They waited a year ortwo and then began experimenting on her.She escaped -with help from the Late Fletcher - about age nine and was on her own ever since. She traveled where she could and slowly grew into her powers. She is very agile in earth terrains and she gains a bit of her power every year. I figured why stop at illusions? Why not some of her powers become real? But only the elemental pieces. Water fire lightening. But take away from it and she can't control it and she can't cause like massive earthquakes or anything but she isn't weak either. She just doesn't realize all of this yet and until she does and can control it she will malfunction hence the sparking fingertips and the mishap with her staff.

How did u come up with that idea? Cuz it was actually elaborate...hmm well ima change my character simply because for me to rp him the way i read him would be overpowered...so idk i think ima just alter my character but keep the storyline for him the same...

Hmmm...yea i think ima have my character be human, but trained a little in hand to hand combat but has the ability to control sound waves from his body. Ex. he can yell EXTREMELY loud, or slam his hands together causing a wave that pushes against anything in its path. N hell carry a huge hammer (kinda like mjilnor (spelling?) thors hammer).

Is that an acceptable character u guys think? like he has a lot of power but has a lot of weaknesses

I think as long as you have it balanced out you should be fine.

When I first started out I couldn't really get into it but then I found some posts went with one idea after the other and before I knew it I had a back story... Not all my characters work so well.

Ok since i did like my idea for dante from supernatural Rp im goin with the idea of my character being old...like OLD. Like 4,000 years old, but still human. He was endowed by Thors hammer with all of Thors thunder powers, and immortality, and powerful build (from carryin a hammer only capable of being lifted by one person so u no its heavy), but have him still have the durability of a strong human. So he is well balanced, he is great for offense, but has not armor or anything for defense

Ok so Al and i have agrred to keep the story the same, just chage the character himself. So his new name is soundblast (alias due to no one in existence knowing his real name). And were going to start from the point where they were leaving the bar in search of the andalite ship

Post by: Shenmue654 on March 02, 2011, 02:12:38 AM
Hmm, well...changing a character's motives and backstory when you've already announced them in-Roleplay is generally a bad idea. It breaks immersion and cheapens your character as a person. It's far easier to simply keep the character's identity as-is but scale them to the level of the other PCs. Basically ask yourself this question: could a human with a gun kick my character's butt in a fair fight given the right moves? If the answer is "No," then you need to scale said character down a few notches. I know a thing or two about this "fine art'"; it once created an entirely new character.

This is because changing where the character is from also changes who the character is. Sometimes drastically. This game is all about psyches and character development! :P

Oh, and sorry I'm so delayed lately forum. I've had a lot of work. :P
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Nero's Fury on March 02, 2011, 02:40:20 AM
Well like the ENTIRE background story is the same except who the character is. but hes still the same, from the shadow dimension, searchin for the andalites that found the cure for his planets disease in the shadow dimension. i just was like if i toned down his power it wouldnt be the same n i was like to disrespectful to the character! so im just changing the characters name and his abilities. so now its like this, can a human with a gun kill him? yes. is he powerful? pretty strong with the hammer, but take it awa and he loses all of his abilities and becomes ordinary human again so hes pretty ok balanced

*Snickers* Oh, I'm almost sure that I'm disrespecting Mar by having it so that he can't enter the Bar except as a mortal. XP But somehow that very lack of respect makes him interesting to play: this is the same guy that normally tortures people that don't respect him. Villainhood's a riot. But...as long as the things stated in the story are still consistent with his background it's okay. Basically, he has to still be a Vampire otherwise Salem's posts no longer make any sense. Unless we all collectively agree to retcon....but that's awkward. :D

Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Nero's Fury on March 02, 2011, 11:01:31 AM
Well that was why Al and i had already agreed that we could just kinda jump back to the begining of the woods because that was when him being a vampire jumped into play really at all

Haha... Kelly, you now have me crossing my fingers that Mar doesn't show up at your doorstep and wind up torturing you :P

Yeah, I think before they entered the woods, all it would really do is change some of the terminology. Mostly just the word "vampire" and Vlad's name- I don't think either was revealed to anyone but Salem and Mar. Should make for a relatively inconsequential retcon. Aside from that, everything that's happened prior should stay basically the same- the character coming to the bar, yelling for help, talking to Salem and Mar. Goku's saying he's even still from the "shadow realm," so the portion of the conversation that really caught the attention of both Salem and Mar is still intact. *shrug* Sounds pretty doable to me, anyway.

Goku: might as well at this point. If you just want to retcon a bit and go straight to the point where they're about to enter the woods, you can have your guy jump on his bike and head for the ship. Maybe a bit bumpy for jumping back in, but since our two characters are the only ones affected by the scene outside the bar leading up to that, it should work out fine.

On that note; Mythica, like Goku said (he posted before I could finish this one :P) Salem and "Soundblast," Goku's "adjustment" to Vlad, are outside the bar, in the woods.

Well the main idea behind the andalite ship anyways, is im looking for some andalites that were looking for a cure for my home planets genetic disease that was killing nearly everyone. So i was thinking id start a new thread after we find out that this ship isnt the right one, then we will travel to the shadow dimension, where we will have to travel around to find the scientists, then well have to get home and distribute it. And in the Shadow Dimension any beings with powers get stronger, and those without get some a lot of the time. But they would end up facing a bunch of new villains trying to stop us n everything

It's the same issue with him taking Mar's deal, though- he may look 23, but he's a jaded, experienced old man who's learned not to just jump into things. It's in his character to avoid conflicts whenever possible. It'd be a tough time convincing him to go, either way. I'm starting to think maybe I should have brought him to the bar when he was younger >.< He's not nearly as spontaneous and adventurous as he once was- much more deliberate now.

So he's kind of like a glass cannon. I'm reminded of Parker's character, who was an enhanced Human in a power suit. He couldn't take out an army in one blow, but his armor was very strong. Kind of the reverse of Blast.

I feel like Temrash is underpowered compared to some. I think he might need some slash and energy resistant armor. Not to the extent of full body plate, but something decent.

Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Shenmue654 on March 14, 2011, 11:33:02 AM
...this desire for random badassery is...perplexing in a Roleplay like the GESB. o.o; The characters don't have to precisely equal one another, but there's still this requirement (in my opinion) that a guy with a ray gun has a 50 to 60% chance of taking them out. Ossanlin's got a sort of Limit Break Mode like Blast does, but he can't keep it up for more than ten or fifteen minutes. And he's still beatable---we had a LOT of bloody Ossanlin. XP

I guess in the portion of the Bar you guys are in, the amped strength might be necessary for where the Roleplay's going though. Lots of fighting and all. ;3
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on March 14, 2011, 11:44:08 AM
Well, I guess compared to the more Ani universe characters he doesn't really need to be more than what he is. I may just need to let go of how I originally pictured him before I actually used in in a roleplay.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Terenia on March 14, 2011, 06:41:43 PM
Well, let's just keep in mind that this is primarily an aniverse roleplay. So it makes sense that Temrash would have the limitations that he does. There's a reason we outlawed Super Saiyan's and the like. If an Andalite, Hork-Bajir or well-armed human can't beat him/her then they are probably too powerful, no matter what 'verse they are from.

I don't see anything wrong with Temrash currently, as far as his abilities are concerned. Not everyone needs a superpower, especially since a reliance on powers tends to hinder character development (which is kind of the point of the bar). :P

Temrash is a good Hork-Bajir Controller. *pat pat*

Not to the bar proper. I just thought you meant the shadow dimension.

I had Temrash let her through. Let her get her body back, especially if she has to beg on her knees. Now he can focus solely on Corliss. Though I guess he might have tried to make her finish what she was going to say first.

Paranoid manic, perhaps?

Having a short fuse and killing someone outside of battle for whatever reason is extreme behaviour. Efaen definitely fits the bill of W.I.E.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Terenia on March 17, 2011, 06:02:14 PM
It's extreme behavior, yes. But it isn't extremism. "Extremism" implies extremist ideals or views. Her murdering Tamora is more of an emotional reaction mixed with her strange way of rationalizing things.

In her mind, her only goal in life was to set Tamora free. Tamora's captor was the Yeerk Empire and, when she became voluntary, the only way to free her of the Empire was to eliminate her.

Also, hi Shock! And yeah, Terenia isn't manic strictly speaking. She's a bit schizophrenic, and suffers from slight DID...which you'll have with three different species instincts yelling in your head about how to react on top of your own mind and possibly a hosts. But mostly she's just paranoid and high strung and suffering from PTSD.

Hey Jessi, Oss wasn't moving faster than a walking human because he actually wants Mar to follow him, so unless Terenia was really slow, she'd be able to catch up to him with a light jog.  I know the word "trot" is usually meant to describe a brisk four-hooved pace, but in this instance I meant it to be a synonym for walk.

Post by: Luke Skywalker (Ossanlin) on March 19, 2011, 04:56:35 PM
Well Aldrea...if you read the intro post, you'll know that we like newer players in the GESB to try and keep it down to one character in the bar at a time.  I know you've probably had a lot of role-play experience in the past, but the GESB is a little different than a lot of role plays, so we ask that you keep your characters to one until you get used to the format and how things work.  As for your character's objective, we wouldn't want you to bring in another character just for the sake of your original character to interact.  That setup is good for fanfics and writing, but this roleplay is focused more on interactions with other players and development of your own personal character.  If you wish to change your original character, I think it's probably new enough at this point to do it...but we ask that you don't go around changing your one allowed character willy-nilly as it hurts continuity and makes for a poor roleplay for those around you.

Again, welcome and I hope you enjoy the GESB.  :)

And by the way...all of those of you who feel it is necessary to have more than one character, keep in mind that I have only one character present 99.9 % of the time and I'm very involved and have been part of the RP for a few years now.  If you make a character you care about and sympathize with, it is the only one you'll ever need.

If we tell you here, and your knowledge impacts the actions of your characters, then that's actually a form of god-modding. It's best to just have him figure it out through the story. If you want to have him directly address Elayne in the Bar (sitting at a table with Trey), I'm happy to get the ball rolling. As fair warning, though, she doesn't have much information, and she's not going to be likely to help hurt Ossanlin.

i think he is in the forest, which is why I have Okaru checking outside

This is the form of god-modding I was talking about. Your character cannot think or believe something simply because you do. They're limited by what they have learned and what they know, which is entirely separate from what you know.

You shouldn't have him go outside looking for Ossanlin because you think Ossanlin is outside. You should have him go outside only if he has reason to think Ossanlin is outside.

Does that make sense?

It does, and he does. Ossanlin isnt in the bar. Lol
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: KitsuneMarie on March 21, 2011, 02:18:12 PM
Alrighty. The fact that he's not in the bar so he must be elsewhere is a good reason to go poking around, but your comment set off alarm bells, so I wanted to make sure you understood. Thanks. :)

Post by: Nero's Fury on March 21, 2011, 02:23:30 PM
Lol no problem. I was just hoping whenever someone got the chance, they might alert me to the direction Ossanlin is in. All in all Okaru is the kind of guy to search EVERYWHERE. So ill probably end up having him search the nearby area before finding him anyways

Most of what you need to know before you post is in the first post of this thread. :) As for planned plot developments... XD "Plot" kind of comes as you go along. And there are a few going at once.

Yes there is...HAVE FUN. Thats really generally it. Try keeping it to one charie for a while then u can have more. No godmodding, and this RP isnt made for violence but more for interaction.

Anything i missed?
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Shenmue654 on March 21, 2011, 03:09:43 PM
We like to pretend there's a plot. :P

Well, technically there is---but because there are like twelve or so players at any given time the plot is formed via the actions of the characters. Since the characters think differently from one another (and some in rather irrational or self-centered ways---characters are as imperfect or more imperfect than regular human beings), conflicts erupt. The setting is no more complicated or less complicated than "a Bar in space"---if a human with a Dracon can beat it up, you can play it. Well, the rule is "original characters only---either from the Animorphs timeline or from somewhere else entirely."

It seems more like a few different plots going at once--sometimes connected, sometimes not, some mostly connected... some only connected in that they're happening at the same place. XD

Or I guess: One plot, more or less, and several sub-plots.

Luke, I think my head just exploded ;D

Storm, welcome to the GESB!  Everyone's been over the rules, but again I'll emphasize that there is no god-modding.  Try to put yourself into the mind of your character, because your character does not automatically know what you, the player, know. 

Original characters only, one character to start out...oh, and you seem to be doing pretty well so far but just a reminder, try to write more than one-liners posts (we like to read :D) and pretty please, try to keep up the good grammar and spelling.

If you have any questions feel free to post them in here, the unofficial mods are me, Terenia, Ossanlin, Kitsune and Shenmue.  But we'd all be happy to help!

And Thor is right.  Have fun!

I'm all confuzzled....

EDIT: By the way.. I'm kinda considering bringing a more permanent character into the bar, if that's alright with the GESB senior members. I'd... tell y'all about him, but I'd kinda like to show-and-tell instead. Don't worry, it's nothing crazy, and it's even an Animorphs-based character! And I promise, he won't be morphing a Spinosaur like that one time.... :P

Just, can you top it in ANY way): I have over 20 species in my Alliance, and another 30 or so that are friendly, ambivalent or opposed, all stacked in a paper pile about three inches thick(part of it is also my starship designs, of which I have over 50).

Well the Taxxon sidequest is over until Iosse gets into the bar, I think. So I haven't really done anything with Claxter. I post pretty often, unless I'm not sure what to have a character say or do next.

Then there are times when I fortunately get pulled away from the computer.

It wasn't exactly a side quest, Chad. :P Not everything in an rp is a mission with a clear beginning and end. But you're right, as long as Iosse is on board the ship there isn't much we can do on that front.

However, Efaen did just speak to Temrash, and I don't think he responded. I may have missed it, though.

Fenebok, being the older brother looks around for some company to……chat with.

My first post is on page 145:

Quote from: Terenia
The door swings open, squealing in an unforgiving sort of way that makes the newest entrant of the bar cringe slightly. She shuts the door hastily, as if to conceal the sound, and hurries up to the bar.

"A shot of your strongest." She mumbles, setting herself down on a worn out bar stool and pulling her jacket around herself tighter. She surveys her surroundings with a critical, watchful eye, but make no comment. One foot taps against the bar stools bottom rung restlessly. She seems uncomfortable, constantly fidgeting to push her dirty blonde hair back, or readjust her nondescript brown jacket. When her drink arrives, she cups it with care, but does not down it quite yet.

Good Lord. Where was my first post? Somewhere in the six or seven hundreds, I think. Is there a reasonably quick way to do this?

It was Temrash coming in and sitting at the bar, and Myitt talked to him because she was also sitting at the bar. He said he was running from the Empire, and she mentioned the rebellion. He decided to join, but never actually got around to talking to Reven. He still wants to ally himself with the rebels, but it's looking increasingly unlikely that he will be. Tora and Corliss don't like him, and I forget how much Myitt does or doesn't like him. There's a good chance he may team up with the pirates, since they still like him and have things that the Empire hasn't seen before from their own universe.

It's been an interesting story with Temrash.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: KitsuneMarie on March 23, 2011, 11:01:57 PM
Here's mine... back when I was firmly entrenched in past-tense land!

Elayne's jaw relaxed for a brief moment as she saw light flicker off the hulls of several ships clustered around a decrepit building ahead. Finally, she thought with relief, some semblance of civilization. But then she tensed again almost immediately at the prospect of actually landing the craft in which she was currently seated. "That is, landing it without destroying everything in sight," she amended, her voice sounding flat in the empty c.ockpit. "This sucker'll land, most definitely. The question is if it'll land with me still alive inside."

She began guiding the small ship to a patch of empty, flat ground near the building. Her tight grip on the controls was doing nothing to stop its jerky motions, but when the entire craft began to shudder violently, her blue eyes darted to a light that had suddenly begun to blink frenetically to her right. "Okay," she whispered, one hand diverted to the new set of controls. "Thrusters should be powering down...." She slowly pulled the most prominent lever down and, mercifully, the ship's shaking stopped. Relying on the cameras' visual feedback, she managed to land; the left legs touched down first, which made the craft wobble precariously, but then the right legs slammed into the ground, causing the floor to be finally parallel with the horizon.

Elayne remained trembling in her seat as she powered down the ship. Although her body was freezing, her forehead was covered in sweat, a revelation that caused her fear to be swallowed with embarrassment. Unclasping the safety belt and standing, she kicked the seat's base with a growl. "I am not a pilot," she glowered at the body of the human man slumped in the corner. "What the heck were you thinking, dying in mid-flight with no one else but a mechanic on board, huh?" she demanded, and stalked out of the ship and towards the building.

Flicking her dark hair over her shoulder, she pushed open the door and strode in. A bar, she realized in relief, and headed straight towards the bartender, noting little else. If ever I needed a drink, it was now, she thought and ordered a stiff one. Only after half her mug had been drained did she start to examine her surroundings.

That's cheating, Chad! You have to post the actual post! Or I'll do it for you. :P

Here's Chad's first post, on page 105:

Quote from: Chad29
(I wonder why this RP is so active and long running? I want to join.)

An old, battle scarred bug fighter landed near the Space Bar, and an equally battle worn Hork-Bajir controller stepped out. He was eight feet tall, muscular, and had over a dozen scars of varying sizes. The most notable were a scar on his neck and chest. The wound on his neck injured his vocal chords, so that he couldn't talk above a regular voice. and when he did talk, it was gruff. The second was where an Andalite's tail went right through one of his hearts. The heart was replace, and the wound was mostly closed, but it was still a conversation starter. His eyes told many stories of the Yeerk Andalite war.

He stepped in slowly, and gazed at the crowd before he made his way to a barstool. He asked for the strongest thing they had.

<We stay night?> The host asked.

<Yeah. We need feul to get much farther than this. But we're not going back. We...we can't go back.>

I really enjoy the fact that you commented about how long running it was.....900 pages ago. :D

Wow...funny in hindsight regarding how "long" the RP seemed back then. I have long forgotten that part I posted about Temrash not being able to speak above a normal voice. Now I feel like I've been here forever. How did you find the post?

Post by: Terenia on March 23, 2011, 11:24:49 PM
A few months ago I went back and read the whole thing from start to finish, so I have a decent idea of where everyone joined. Once you narrow it down to within a hundred or so it's easy, you just check random pages until you find the first page. With you it's especially easy b/c you post on every single page at least once, so I knew if a page didn't have a post from you you hadn't joined yet.

I've never gone back and reread the whole thread, or at least starting with my first post. That might be interesting to see how my character has grown.

That's the thing about organic RP Goku/Thor...the characters behave as they would behave without outside influence from narrators.  If your character would confront Ossanlin at the present time and in the company of Mar, then he should do that.  It all depends on who your character is and how he would act in the situation at hand.  Let him "play himself" in other words.  This is one reason character development is so important in this RP.  :)

Would this happen to be it Thor?

Out of nowhere a huge burst of wind blasts the doors straight open with a resounding bang. For a moment nothing happened, but then seeming to fade into existence in the door way, stood a man.

Tall and muscular, he was clothed in a black vest with no shirt underneath, black jeans with a skull on the left pocket that seemed to glow of its on accord. And to top it off a gray worn out trenchcoat that hung mere inches above the ground, and a matching grey hat resembling the wide flat brimmed hats of the Earthly pilgrims.

Due to all of this he appeared mysterious and scary, and most mysterious was how the hat and collar from the trenchcoat, came together to cause a shadow around his face preventing any details to be discerned.

He slowly seemed to glide to the bar where he ordered a bottle of Jack Daniels, a glass, and ice.

He then turned and sat at an unoccupied table in the back corner.

After sitting he removed his hat, revealing a man so gorgeous to almost be called beautiful. (have to finish on second post)

(Stupid phone!)
Black hair hung loose against his neck, with a few strands dangling over his face. High cheekbones and vibrant green eyes drew yours, followed by his lips which were lucious and red. His voice a deep spine tingling baratone.

Glancing around the room at all the RAFians he quickly deduced no immediate danger and visibly lost the tension in his muscles.

That's great! Thanks for posting Myitt!

((Okay... for starters... XD))

A young woman, in about her early twenties, opened the door and peered into the bar. She stood there for a minute, contemplating going in, contemplating going out.

Genie was starting to get annoyed. <It's not going to bite you, P.>

Priton frowned but finally opened the door wide and stepped inside. <Satisfied?>

<Yes, thank you.>

Priton approached the bar, flagging down the bartender. "Whiskey." Genie made a disgruntled sound. Priton rolled his eyes. "And a coke."

((Pssh. I had a better intro post... which I've forgotten. But... in case it gets confusing: Priton = Yeerk. Genie = Host. And yes, Priton is "male."))

First post game? I can play this one ^_^ Here's me, on page 576.

Seemingly out of nowhere, a series of three impossibly bright flashes illuminate the upper atmosphere, each lasting only a split second. Moments later, three burning meteors... or are those spacecraft? hurtle towards the planet, impacting within seconds. They hit in quick succession, each closer to the bar than the last, each impact causing a huge explosion to reverberate across the planet's surface, and sending debris hundreds of feet into the air. The last "meteor" impacts uncomfortably close to the bar, rocking the large ship (the one all you guys are fighting on) and showering it with burning chunks of metal and molten rock kicked up by the impact. The explosion is powerful enough to shake the ground near the bar, making the planet feel slightly less stable. Inside the bar itself the windows rattle and dust sifts down from the rafters, but after only a second, the explosion has subsided, and all animal life for miles around has gone suddenly silent.

((Hey guys ^_^))

I'd forgotten that my first four or five posts were actually in present tense :P

Post by: Aluminator (Kit) on March 24, 2011, 08:11:04 PM
I remember reading that one ^_^ I really do need to go back and read this entire thread at some point. So much entertaining!

Hey, Thor, is this your first one, or did you have earlier ones I didn't know about? This is from page 644:

A huge icey gust of wind blew through the bar as a rather tall man of 6'6" walked in. Slowly walking through the room the women could only stare. Covered in shoulder length shaggy blonde streaked hair and piercing blue eyes he could only be described as rugged and gorgeous. But then flashing a smile of perfect pearly whites with unmatched dimples, he could only be described as to die for.

Smiling he ordered a shot of jack and vodka. Feeling a hand touch his shoulder he slowly turned to see a goliath like hulk of muscle standing there.

"How can i help u?" Jason Icestorn {ice-torn} said to the burly man, his voice every bit as sexy as his body.

"U can leave 'erre  now mate." Said the man that was clearly drunk.

"Look, i don't need any trouble-" Icestorn tried to say before getting slugged hard enough to force him to his knees.

But as he stood it was evident of there bein a vast drop in temperature.

Hair covering glowing blue eyes he finally stood his full height. Creating a gauntlet from ice he swung hard once. Connecting he heard a crack then the man went down..HARD.

Grabbing his drink he walked to an empty table. He started sitting on air before suddenly a chair made ice appeared under him, and he began to enjoy his drink...

================================================
EDIT:
(second and third character)

Moments later a very similar looking man of a total 7' even walked into the bar. Followed by another man evened out at 6'. Both were above average looking also. The first being covered in jet black hair with dark hazel eyes and a beautiful yet seldom shown smile, it was very evident he was a fire element, due to his every step leaving burns in the floor even through his boots. The second having bright blonde hair with amazing green eyes. He possessed the element of air because as long as he remained in motion his clothes and hair remained rippled by a breeze that appeared only near him.

Walking to the bar Dante Infernal, the man with black hair, slapped down 200 dollars. "1.75 liter of patrone silver" Dante said in his sultry voice, and the bottle almost immediately appeared near him. Grabbing it by the neck him and his brother Titan Hurrikane, the blonde, walked to Icestorn.

Pulling out chairs they all openly showed their open enjoyment at being with family. It was easily noticed by all the bar patrons...

Assuming it's alright, I'll be bringing in my new character by tomorrow evening at the latest. I'm working out a few kinks, and then I'll be ready. I say 'if it's alright' since I've already got Iosse there, but... I see him becoming an NPC Taxxon-Controller really soon. :P It was fun playing a Taxxon, but... he didn't have much motive to really interact much. He just wanted to get back to as close to normal as he could. Which meant having a Yeerk. Which meant putting him out of play. *shrugs* And that's all fine by me. I just wanted to eat Terenia's sister.  >:D

So yeah, expect a newcomer to the bar who (hopefully) will be here for a while.

Welcome Pokey! Make sure you've read page #1 of this thread for the rules!

Also, just a side note, I'm not sure that the bar has proper docking abilities for an entire Dome Ship. There's only one other Dome in the vicinity and it's being left in orbit. The shipyard doesn't have docks, technically. It's more like a gravel parking lot. So it's more likely that a fighter landed than an entire Dome. :P

First, on page 310 of the Andalite Chronicles, Elfangor notices warm wet liquid on his cheeks when talking to the Ellimist.  He says, "Tears.  A human thing."

And I swear in either that book or another Ax or Elfangor says they cried inside, as only Andalites can do.

Oh yeah, Steph, I looked it up!  Nerdy, or just plain sad? XD
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Stephquiem on March 29, 2011, 11:19:13 PM
Maybe Elfangor was just some kind of tear duct-less freak, and his parents told him that's how all Andalites cry! :P

I'm going to go with nerdy. :P Because if I wasn't a lazy bum, I'd do the same thing. (Er... which I guess means I wouldn't, since I'm never not a lazy bum? Bah.)

Scotty wanna play too! Unnggghhh! Interwebs, come back!

Okay, so, I don't really have internet yet. Salem's... like, watching Fern Gully or something. Whatever it is he does when I'm not writing him. Actually, I guess it'd be something more like Space Fern Gully, because otherwise he might get the occasional Earth reference. No way he's watching ancient children's entertainment from a little backwater planet he has no desire to have anything to do with :P

Also, I ran across this thing the other day:

http://www.ponylandpress.com/ms-test.html

It's kinda fun. I ran Salem through it and got an 11. Apparently he makes up for being good at things by being kind of a manipulative lying a**hole. Corliss would vouch for that one :P It's obviously not totally accurate (no way it could take everything into account), and it's designed more for original fiction or fanfics than roleplays, but I thought you guys might get a kick out of it ;D

I highly doubt any of my characters are Mary Sues, though I did get accused of making a Mary sue character in a roleplay on another board. I disagreed, but the guy in charged kicked me out anyway. That and I didn't go above the minimum two paragraph limit enough.

It was an Animorph/Pokemon crossover. One incidence was when the Andalite said something was coming from the trees, after telling our group about Yeerks, and another character said it didn't look like a pokemon, though he didn't get a clear view of it. I had my character say it might be a Yeerk, using basic reasoning skills, and was accused of being a Mary Sue.

Illim got a 10. "The Anti-Sue. Your character is the very antithesis of a Mary-Sue. Why are you even taking this test?" And what's funny is most of his points came from being a Rebellion member, but he isn't even a part of it yet. XD I'll run Elayne and Tora through when I have time, but it's back to work for now...

I wasn't sure if I should mark rebellion member or not. He is in charge of a group of rebels, though they rarely take open public measures. It's all working from the inside, not launching attacks. And I really can't say with certainty if he'll become affiliated with Reven's group or not.

Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on March 31, 2011, 11:22:13 PM
A Mary Sue is someone who is unrealistically perfect. Like a hero that never loses a battle, is never wrong about anything, and anyone who disagrees with him/her is always wrong. You can learn more in TV Tropes. That's where I learned about the various Sue archetypes.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Myitt on April 01, 2011, 12:24:37 AM
Occasionally Mary Sues are also described as those who embody the direct placement of the character writer into the role of the character...althoug h it goes along with what Chad said, the whole infallibility and invincibility of the character.

Post by: Chad32 on April 01, 2011, 12:39:11 AM
They call that an author avatar. Placing yourself in a story, and changing the reality of the universe to suit your needs. Like breaking up a canon pairing because you think X person should be paired with another. There's really all kinds of things, but the common idea is that Mary Sues or Marty Stus for males, are annoying and unrealistic.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Myitt on April 01, 2011, 12:44:51 AM
Is that what they call it these days? ;D


So I think, because "Tara" is basically me, that my main character's host is an holdover from when I was 14 that makes her a self-insertion to some degree.  But Myitt herself gets a 9, the Anti-Sue ;D

Claxter was going to ask who Serid was, but Theta woke up. He should still be confined to the room, but if he was awake, he needed watching. Claxter gave Efaen a communicator so they could keep in touch, assuming she still wanted to help. Right now she seemed involved in a conversation, though he wasn't sure about what.

He went back to the ship. <I have destroyed your ship. There will be no more drones, and no escape. You are cut off.> He said. <If you refuse to cooperate, I will find a way to dismantle you.>

Chad, this post confuses me. I think I missed the part where you were off of the ship. Did Claxter approach Efaen at any point? I thought he was with Theta the whole time.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion

Efaen isn't near Theta. She's walking outside with Serid. Claxter and Theta are on Claxter's ship. Unless I missed something (entirely possible since I've been relying on my phone the past six days instead of my computer).
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on April 04, 2011, 10:29:39 AM
Claxter went to get Temrash. Since that would take a little while, I decided to let you get a post in if you'd like to have Theta try to escape. Though I guess I could just post that they arrive if you're waiting on that.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Terenia on April 04, 2011, 11:05:18 AM
Ah, I see. It would also take awhile to put a ship in orbit, fry a bunch of drones and land. Also to walk from your ship to the bar to Temrash's and then back towards Efaen. ::)

Anyways, go ahead without waiting on Efaen. I'm out of town and don't think I can keep up with your posting speed via phone. I don't want to hold up your storyline.

Mar might be able to see Fiona if she's still on the Bar premises. He has shiny green eyes of metaphysical weirdness. XD Why green? I'm not sure. Some combination of too much FF7, Maleficent fire colors, and snakes. Lots of snakes. That and this Ted Dekker Narnia-esque book which gives anyone created by God and on his side bright green eyes. Which in Mar's case makes absolutely no sense, but waaahh I can do what I want! XD

I think we worked it out.

You'll need at least three small implants, or two medium implants, or one large implant to have been assimilatd at one point. The Alvie incorporate their cybernetics into the units that well, removing all implants is 99.999% of the time fatal. No TECHNOBABBLE!!! lol, come to me if you need words. I think that's all.

Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: KitsuneMarie on April 06, 2011, 12:34:09 PM
No. Trey noticed Treylis here,

Trey leans forward, interested in Jasper's response, when one of the more unfamiliar patrons approaches Elayne. He is about to greet her until he sees that she is clearly reaching for his companions weapon.

"Hey!" He interjects, jumping to his feet so quickly that his chair tips over backwards with a loud thud. His still mostly full water sloshes dangerously as he shakes the table, spilling onto the warped wood.

and Elayne secured her Dracon here:

Trey's exclamation of alarm comes at an ideal time for Elayne to both notice the weapon thief and avoid seeing the grizzly scene of Fiona's death out the window.

"What do you need this for?" she demands of the thief, but her attention is again distracted by the sound of a nearby Dracon shot, followed by Jasper's outburst.

"What the...?" she mutters, trying to get a look at what has happened outside, but at the expression on Jasper's face, she decides she doesn't want to see.

Cinching her Dracon holster tighter, she buckles the leather strap over the top of the weapon.

It's very good and very important that you have given him a back story. And I think it's also good that you're trying to spice things up in the Bar with some action.

Terenia's point earlier, if that's what you're reacting to, though, is that the GESB isn't for fighting as much as it is for character development. This is why, when a writer has a character enter the Bar for the purpose of fighting or killing another character--especially a long-established one, it's pretty hard to pull that off. It's generally a good idea to run the idea by the target character's author first, just so they know what's coming and can save you the time if they don't want to go through with it. Hope that helps.

INTRODUCING ANOTHER CHARACTER:

Ok so some of you will know of my character Miteca, whom from his dimension was Earths protector. And as I was going through reading the RP a little, I noticed not many people really trully were just evil. As a matter of fact, im sure I did not see one...maybe i missed him/her but either way i decided to bring in a villain.

His name is Diteca (die-tech-uh). He is an alternate reality Miteca, and a genetic experiment gone wrong, or one that worked to well. He was made to be mankinds protector from all things evil, but during his creation something went wrong. Instead of getting his power from a lightning bolt, Diteca got his from the start. And as he was slowly raised, his steel hard skin and immense speed and strength made him hard to control. But in his eyes his creators were attacking him, so he slaughtered them all. He then went on to be the earths protector, but by destroying anyone whom did not obey him. He has long flowing scarlet red hair, and completely steel like eyes

Post Merged: April 16, 2011, 12:24:33 AM
. He is pretty strong, fast, and intelligent. He outdoes his counter part in strength and intelligence, but Miteca has the greater speed.

Diteca, when created, was more or less made to be a super computer ultimate weapon....and he now is...but all in the wrong way...

So are you removing Okaru from the RP then Ryno?  At the moment we'd prefer that you keep it to one character at a time.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Terenia on April 16, 2011, 11:35:37 AM
Ryno....I'm sensing a little disconnect here.

A lot of our characters could be construed as villains, depending on who you talk to. One of my characters has a tendency to murder people in cold blood and another favors the genocide of an entire species. Hell, Mar is basically an incarnation of Satan. But none of these characters look like villains because they are more complex than that.

If you introduce a character that is a "true villain" and just flat out evil, then you have a problem! No one wants to interact with true evil and your character will not be allowed to develop. Additionally, if your character tries to start a fight you're just running into the same problem. The bar has fights from time to time, but that isn't its purpose.

So....be careful, is what I'm saying. Many of the pure evil characters that have appeared in the past disappeared very quickly, because this bar is all about the shades of gray.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: KitsuneMarie on April 16, 2011, 11:46:47 AM
this bar is all about the shades of gray.

Except for the bright white shine every time Illim grins.

Just kidding! XD

No, you're right, Jessi. To me, learning about shades of gray was one of the main lessons of Animorphs. In the first book, we thought the kids and Elfangor were good, Visser Three and the other Yeerks were bad. But then we met some characters who challenged this paradigm. Eventually, even such familiar characters as Visser One and the Animorphs, themselves, challenged it. They trap and abandon David. Jake becomes a mass murderer. Meanwhile, the Yeerk Peace Movement challenges all misconceptions of the parasitic aliens. No one is evil or good. Everyone is just motivated by some kind of goal, belief, idea, or disorder to act a particular way.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Shenmue654 on April 16, 2011, 12:00:24 PM
Okay, first bit: what should natively be behind Mar is more of a...well a huge black pulsating void. Kind of the absence of any aura rather than an aura. Or maybe a very poisonous one. But since there's no way you could possibly know that and I've been gone a day or so, I'll let you off.  ;D

And....yeah. The thing is: the Bar is a weird place, surrounded in shades of gray. If the character is evil (and some of the Bar members could be seen that way), his/her motives are just as complex as any "good guy." Very few people are evil for evil's sake: most are simply extremely jaded, bitter individuals. Hence why Mar is a terrible person, yet has friends in the Bar and his own convoluted reasoning for his actions. It's often far more fun to play someone who's biased than someone who isn't. XDD

Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: KitsuneMarie on April 20, 2011, 05:24:50 PM
Double brackets can either indicate private thought speak, or they can indicate internal communication between a Yeerk and its host. I'll let Jessi say whether Terenia was using thought speak or Yeerk communication. In my post here (http://animorphsforum.com/index.php?topic=2089.msg604507#msg604507), though, for instance, Illim is just using his natural ability to speak with his host.

Maybe we should come up with a different punctuation system to differentiate them. Thoughts, folks?

Maybe just italics? In general, italics has long been indicative of inner thoughts. We could just use italics for whenever someone thinks to themself, and assume thta hosts and Yeerks can hear that unless stated otherwise.

Or you know, just make it clear by typing things like <insert line> Derrel said to Illim.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: KitsuneMarie on April 20, 2011, 05:43:17 PM
The only problem is that hosts can't always hear what their Yeerks are thinking. That's why I distinguish between Illim's thoughts and <<communication with Derrel.>>

Spelling it out in the sentence works, though!

Terenia is using her natural ability to speak to Mike. She was using private thought-speak when she spoke to Corliss.

I try to indicate within the narrative if she is using private thought-speak. If she's talking to her host, assume she is using her Yeerkish abilities. Anyone else, she's using thought-speak.

To everyone who made a comment about my new character Diteca:

What i had meant was, as already stated, that many of the evil characters were never able to keep active. And those that did/are still going, seem to be evil, but not the image you would think of when you hear pure evil. What I want for Diteca now, is him to stay pure evil but then to slowly help him elaborate and become more in depth. Ex. helping him find emotions etc.

I'm not sure he actually tried anything yet. But if the shields went up, I don't know if it would desintegrate what touches it. After all, when Tobias hit a force field in book 9 he just said it felt like hitting a wall. Not a bug zapper turned up to eleven.

Post by: Myitt on April 21, 2011, 07:56:12 PM
I guess it all depends on how fast Tobias was going, versus how fast an Andalite's tail blade was going.  Either way it's an energy field.  And yeah, he said he put a dent into the ship with his super-extra-powerful Andalite tail.

Don't shield mainly cover an area around a ship?

And I wouldn't think shield would FRIE anything...just prevent it from damaging the ship. If it's moving very fast, like a torpedo or something, shields would kick in...I don't think an andalite tail blade would be that bad. If it was, the blade would shatter, but that's about it.

All I'm saying is, an Andalite blade hitting a blade ship hard enough to dent it is either going so fast it'll activate the shields, or so fast it'll destroy anything but a magical tail blade made of metal or whatever.

And yes, the shields activate around the ship, but I always imagined them as activating very close to the hull rather than several feet away.

Small nitpick, Cobra:

I turned when the alien came yelling into the bar. As did John. " I've got a ship. 'You in a hurry? Follow me?" We head out the the doors at a quick walk and waited at the Traveler for the alien. When he followed we opened the hatch and went inside. We powered up the engines and weapon systems.

I don't know if Scinlao will care or not, but I know I would care if it were my character, so....you can't just say that Scinlao follows you. He has to do that of his own accord. I know it seems like the rational thing for his character to do, since he did just ask for help, but you're assuming that they made it from the bar to the ship without anything of importance happening in between. Maybe Scinlao's character changes his mind for some reason.

Bottom line: You cannot control another person's character under ANY circumstances.

No, I didn't care... ::) rofl

I assume, Ryno, that you were addressing Mar. Tell me if I'm wrong. Huh...that ought to get interesting. Be careful of him---he can be a real jerk when he wants to be. XP Actually outside the Bar, he is 90% of the time. XD

Well I wanted to have one of my stronger characters, such as Okaru, to have a really wierd weakness. His is his yearning for knowledge so he would pretty much willing to take a beating to learn anything he can about Mar. This totally mind blowing discovery of a species, is...lol the best thing i can compare it to for you to get it, is this. Imagine Okaru as a very devoted hallucinagen user and got addicted right? He obviously will need his fix. And his fix is now dangling by Mars evil fingers! Mwuahaha!

Lol but no really Im trying to decide if Im quite dumb enough to let the original plan for Okaru continue on. Now that im watching pretty much...EVRYONE in the bar sooner or later watching the fight and talking about stepping in and helping lol. I probably will cuz itd be a challenge, trying to pull him outta that one, heck even with Diteca's additional power and strength!

Hey Goku, you know that you need to get a players permission for permanent damage on a character, right? So, like, if you tried to kill Ossanlin off, it would only happen if Luke told you it could. Which, frankly, is probably not going to happen. I know I wouldn't approve of anyone killing Terenia off.

Point being, that while a big epic battle between many of the bar players might occur, the only possible outcome is going to be a lot of damage with little reward. It's happened in the past, and it really ends up being kind of less awesome than you might anticipate it being. It might be better for Okaru as a character to work on the side of him that craves knowledge. That'd at least make him more compatible with the bar environment.

I don't want to ruin your fun or anything. If you want this battle to happen, go for it, but don't be surprised if you're disappointed by the turnout. :)

Also I wanted to mention Ryno...I assume Okaru is trying to use deception and not actually telling Mar who hired him, but fabricating a story in hopes that he will be believed...or that Okaru himself was deceived about the person who contracted him.  Ossanlin may be willing to believe that deception if you're convincing enough, though he would be incredibly suspicious given what he knows and the fact that if any Andalite wished to reach him they would be able to do so rather easily unless they no longer have contact with the Homeworld.

My point is, I've been role-playing Ossanlin for about eleven years now, he is very developed and attached to me on rather a deep level.  I have written some of his backstory, and it's not cool for you to simply decide that my character has an uncle that no one knew about except his own father.  In essence you would be writing a backstory for my character who has been in existance since you were probably about 8 years old (I don't know how old you are but I'm assuming around 18, and you don't have to tell me how old you are, it doesn't really matter), but I think you get my point.  In order for this unknown uncle to exist, one set of Ossanlin's grandparents would've had to have been liars or at the least concealed his existence for some reason.  Also the interraction with Ossanlin's father would've changed his character and through parentage it would modify or affect Ossanlin's character as well.  That's just not cool.  This would be a HUGE plot element and behavioral modifier for my character, written by someone who knows almost nothing about him.  It would be like me saying that I'd seen Okaru's father die in a tragic car accident and that's why he became a swordsman, only imagine me saying that if you'd been playing and using Okaru for ten years.  If you're going to do something like this, you need to speak with the person whose character your story would be modifying before posting, and you haven't sent me a PM or said anything to me and I certainly haven't approved this.

If Okaru is simply using deception, that's cool, you can ignore this post.  If it wasn't your intention for Okaru to use deception, well you can either modify your posts or you can simply change your idea and go with the flow, with the line about father and uncle being pure fakery.  Up to you.

And if there is a battle, just a heads up, Ossanlin will not be dying in any way shape or form.  Battles can indeed be fun (I like to participate in one from time to time), but as English "Teach" said, they usually don't have much effect in the long-run.  Okay, end rant.  Thanks for listening.  :)

Ah, Josh/Bear.  You know, my character Myitt once had a desperate issue with oatmeal, during a very dark and desperate time in the rebellion.  Unfortunately, she's not around the bar right now to commiserate with Sapttus...but she would.

Trust me.

And btw,... where *is* Myitt? :huh: Obviously, she left, but... where?

Oh, and something I've been wanting to ask. Has Jasper and Sapttus' internal dialogue getting a bit too much? They talk a lot, I've realized.

I actually really like the way you're playing them- the internal dialogue, the shared control, everything. They're obviously pretty friendly with each other, and pretty heavily affected by the oatmeal dependency, and not really like any other Yeerk/host duo I've seen at the bar. I enjoy their posts ^_^

I checked, and it turns out I've been slightly misrepresenting small parts of Atazin canon. For one thing, the gravity gun Salem's got holstered now is made mostly from ivory and dragon scales, not pure silver. Also, for the microbes, it turns out Flekteon absorb metal and emit energy, not the other way around- I've been using the approximate reverse of that the whole time Salem's been here. I'm either going to have to retcon my few mentions of them into something else, or say they're genetically modified. I'm leaning towards the former.

Cause everyone was paying so much attention to my consistencies with Atazin continuity :P

Ok I think this will be fun Luke. Thats it. And yes lol it was entirely something i just typed up. Pure deception. He just was hired by a hunter of rare knowledge. Thats pretty much it for his background that I developed. Okaru however was never going to for sure win! I was honestly like why not pick one of the originals as a good start to character development. I realized from previous readings that EVERYone seems to know Ossanlin so who better?...and it also has nothing to do with the fact that its impossible odds to beat. But thats the fun part for me, trying to use everything available to my charie, but eh I like challenges. Lets try and make this a fight to remember! lol

Goku, I think I have an idea for a real challenge, when you're up for it. Maybe when you're done with Okaru. Let me know the next time you're thinking of introducing a character to the bar and I'll tell you about it. :) Could be fun.

She wasn't on it for long, probably less than a month.  It was a nasty time in the rebellion.  Famine.

She left with Tora, to head back to the rebel lunar base in an undisclosed location :)

They had to bury their friend Justin...plus, exhaustion had pretty much set in.

She may be back at some point... ;D

We've been having some bad tornadoes, and one or more ripped through my hometown. It tore up the gated community between where I live and where my parents live, plus messing up some roads between. They're still cleaning it up. I'm wondering if I might try to help them. None of my family or friends were hit, fortunately, but last I heard the death toll was 120 across the state, and they're still finding bodies. This isn't normal for us, I'm sure. We're not used to getting so many.

You think maybe Oss could become corrupted by Mar's energy? He might start acting evil(ish).
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Shenmue654 on May 01, 2011, 05:17:39 PM
Nah, it doesn't work like that. There's no way that Mar would send the dark matter energy to a guy who draws power from the Ellimist----he could actually kill him. Instead what Mar's going to do is send the energy he's feeding off of from souls he's collected. Which to a noble guy like Ossanlin, who in an ascended state will detect what Mar is doing.....will be kind of repulsive.  :P
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Chad32 on May 01, 2011, 05:20:44 PM
Ok. I just started picturing Oss getting an evil power rush and becoming ruthless and stuff until the power ran out.
Title: Re: GESB: OOC Discussion
Post by: Terenia on May 01, 2011, 07:45:25 PM
Ossanlin is an Andalite. He's already ruthless, in his own way.

Besides, if there's anything we've learned from the series, it's that there is no good and evil, right? Just many, many shades of gray. 'Evil' is a silly concept.

Sounds like Fiona. Maybe if you read that book, you'll get some new ideas for your character.

I think there was also a TV show I saw a few times where this guy kept passing into new bodies and helping people. I don't remember the series name, though, but there was another guy there that knew more of what was going on, but only the body switcher could see him.

I've never seen Quantum Leap. I just had this thought of Ossanlin getting corrupted by dark power and brutalizing Okaru or something until it wore off. If something was going to go wrong with Mar channeling power into Oss, that could be one of those things.

Edit: Oh, or were you talking about the TV show I mentioned? I don't know if that's the name, but I'll google it.

Edit again: Yes. That's it.

Post by: Shenmue654 on May 01, 2011, 11:33:41 PM
......oh my god. This might actually be an excuse to rant about how Mar's powers work. XD I rarely get those!

Okay, so Mar's actual power (and the power of multiple other Highest of his type) is drawn from something he calls Oblivion. Call it the glue that holds the universe together, or even a representation of the decay and entropy in the universe. What this means is that exposure to Mar's power is pretty freaking dangerous in general: it can damage the quality of the matter using/being affected by it. Or just warp the heck out of it.

So in a normal person this is gradual, ending in either the person's use of the ability in moderation/control over their emotions or the person's...collapse. But Ossanlin has already had interference coming from a totally different god. The sudden influx of the opposite type of matter running through him could...uhm...rip apart his body. XP

On a totally off-topic point...they finally got Bin Laden. o__O; Is there a place on RAF to post that??

Post by: Shenmue654 on May 02, 2011, 10:11:43 AM
I figure the bit about Mar is magic logic, if there is such a thing. The two types of matter connecting in real life apparently cause explosions. :P I mean unless you guys really want Psycho Ossanlin, but I'd have to ask him about that. :P

...and in most cases where a being like the Devil corrupts someone, it draws off existing flaws. It'd be gradual. I mean unless Mar is really a dick to Ossanlin, which could conceivably happen considering how bad Mar wants him.  But again, too many character arcs in Ossanlin's court going on for that. >:D

And ding dong, the jihadist is dead?! XD
