well i've been through 3 reincarnations of this rp and 3 charactor reincarnations in this series and been there since the start so if you wish to keep it going I am most definitely in.

I started my rp with keeping this one in mind as my 6th rp on this site but I will admit from my side the gap with the site going down at such a critical time for izrael's development finding the banner etc really stopped my flow as I'm really struggling for a direction to take him with.

With this update the whole situation is a little difficult as where you are trying to give us freedom we are having to coordinate with so many people at once because no one wants to tread on any toes.

For me anyway one of ryan or zurick would have taken the lead of our group from a superiority stand point and i dont really know where to begin to be honest. I have my own plan in my own head for what I want to do and I'm still in and still intending to post

So you've got three, i understand we have had a lot of losses,i guess we need to know how many you would need to keep this going.

If it was to collapse it really hasn't gone far enough for you to restart it with the same setting even the same style intro post but just different charactors. I get its not ideal but whose to say whilst kain and co are down on sotha collecting cleomenes, another team with another agenda aren't doing something else for the good of the chapter even on sotha...?

I wouldn't say this is the time to end the scythes in any sense, as i'm sure you have an overall plot, and you have a great little backstory to work off of.

Being fair, par resurrection expert midge and the claw i dont think there is are many rps that have survived the fall of heresy unscathed whilst i think the ideas you had for this rp really struggled with euphs decline to fleeting activity

All I can say is you can count me in but if you do decide to kill it off, i dont think that is goodbye to the scythes forever.

I am still here, but struggling with workload, I should be able to get a post up before the end of the week though I cannot guarantee quality :(

Hm. yeah as I mentioned this update was made up a couple hours before posting it, so its probably not the best. Its a really tough spot for capussa to join into things I'm sure. He said he was waiting on more posts to get a better idea of how to approach it. Though that was a week or so ago so I'm not sure where he stands at this point.

I could just move on to the next part of the plot, I suppose... I do think there are some really interesting things to open up with this scenario though in terms of character relations.

I know a lot of you have had trouble meeting the minimum of one post every two weeks rule. The problem with getting rid of that rule is why I put it in place from the start. If people cannot post at least once every two weeks the overall interest goes down dramatically and posts generally become seen as errand like instead of 'I really want to write this post'. So I'm still on the fence about that. Should there be no time limit?

Well, this is what I have to say on the matter. If deathbringer, Jack, myself, and Deus are still in, and I think we can count on Ramo in the clutch, I think we should press on if you are willing Unxpected. I also have plans to have a post up in the next 48 hours or so. So you have 4 definites and a possibly in Ramo, with Ryan and Zurich as staple NPCs designed for some good character interaction you have between 6 & 7 characters to work with. Personally I would continue, should this RP have been my own, with that many provided that the 4 definites are going to promise to reliably post.

I think that if we can get through this update and get to the meat of the plot, things will begin to move along just fine.

My two cents, take them for what they are worth.

So, since DA is still in.... DA Jack and I are talking about our approach to the training scenario on FB here in a bit. If you are facebook enabled, or you have another method of chat you want to work through perhaps we could all get together.

I haven't got Facebook, I am afraid - I don't do social networks, if people haven't noticed, :p - As for alternative methods, I only have one in mind; the one we used previously.

I'm still good for this and will post within 48 hours

As for the time limit I think it is good, though a tough one for me this time as I was wanting to respond to other characters greetings (or lack of) in my post.

Having gm'd a few tabletop rp's I know how hard it can be to try and keep an rp going when people are not turning up reguarly, so I understand where you are coming from unexpected, though having read the posts above it looks like you have a solid group of players to continue with.

From a personal perspective it would be a shame to kill it just as I join, thus robbing me of the opportunity to experience the rp, however I will hold no ill will or resentment if you do not feel that this is working and end it.

So I went ahead and bit the bullet for everyone and posted up first among the warring groups.... gotta get the ball rolling somehow.

Capussa- I took some liberties placing your character in a situation where Raxan could more easily identify with him. If what I have done is any way out of kilter with what you had in mind please let me know and I will change it to accommodate. I wanted to actually get to speak with you and this was the best way i could think of to get around to it.

DA- I have obviously made up the bit about the far gone battle. I am on a few lovely meds to help me get over bronchitis and I am a bit loopy, so if that doesn't work I don't mind editing it as well, but Raxan (as his controller was writing this evening) found that he remembered a decisive victory against cunning foes. (gotta love codeine).

Looking forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with.

I'll be honest, whilst deathly's plan seems very sound, I kinda hope Midge, DA, Ramo and Jackinator activate Solaki. I quite like the idea of shooting the heel out of you guys, in a brotherly Astartes way of course :p

But, good posts you guys. Pleased unxpekted kept it up :)

oh i'm sure my plan will fail and you will be activated, i mean it will be exceptionally boring for you if you aren't.

Thus I have a back up plan for that eventuality too which I didn't want to put up yet until unxpekted deems the situation that way.

I must admit considering he has 4 playing charactors on one side and 2 and 2 npc's (both badass) on the other so I'm looking forward to seeing how unxpekted chooses to gm it :)

The plans that seem the soundest are usually the ones that go completely wrong. When you’re expecting something to go right, you tend to oversee the faults.

Though, Izrael’s realised that, I think. Let Cleomenes get a hold of the pretty boy, and he’ll show him how to win a fight. :wink:

Solaki is Team Gold's. :p

We only need one to.

And let us face it, Kain and Raziel and Raxan are expendables. :p
