*Emerges coughing from the dust*

Yes, I am still alive. I can do naught but offer my humblest apologies for my sudden and unexplained inactivity. While it is true that I was on holiday for some of the time, the primary reason for my absense is the fact that I have been feeling very demotivated and depressed... and then it reached the stage whereupon I simply didn't have the courage to face you lot again.

Regardless, I have returned, and I have no intention of doing something like that again. I'm here to stay, save for unexpected circumstances.

First order of buisiness: I'm putting the cooking post as a supplement. If anyone still cares, and I would not hold it against you if you didn't, you can post your reactions there. It will be short and sweet... no real need for further conversation. Those involved are:
Faust
Elanor
Mihail
Anya
Kavok


Anyway, I apologise again for letting you all down.

Welcome back harland :), we aren't that scary are we?
Err... yeah. xD We roleplay as evil denizens of the dark online with people we (initially) know nothing about, but who often profess to be somewhat perverted and are overfond of using this smiley: :perv:

Time to get back into the swing of things...


Bounce: I believe Alastor and Sylvie have moved off to a private place to have this discussion. Thus, it is out of our earshot - if I remember correctly, you are still with the others conversing with the Lahmian. Therefore, if you really wanted to interrupt, you would have to post something about going looking for them.

You're correct about Alastor and Sylvie.

Ghoully is there anything else they can discuss?

I did! Just one thing - my character is Roland, not Harland. Confusing, I know; it was bound to happen eventually.

Ghouly: It seems Bounce has deleted his/her post adressing Alastor. Therefore, until he/she says otherwise, we have to assume that Elanor has not in fact gone looking for you.

Don't worry, I didn't notice until after you posted either!

To Bounce (and everyone else for that matter): If you decide to delete or edit a post, make sure to tell us about it so we can react accordingly!

Never! I shall not stand for it! Not sit for it. Nor lie down and take it like a b*tch.

Coarse humour aside, we just need to get a conversation going, or some sort of project, anything to while the time while DoN gets through whatever rough patch he finds himself in.

Please help me. I need feedback on Morty and Defiance! I'm worried that I'm RPing it all wrong! :(
I could write a bit on what perception I have gotten of Morturion so far from the parts I have written... there are still bits I haven't read, like most of chapter two. I wouldn't know what rp'ing your character wrong would be as only you know what doing it right is, but hopefully you can contrast the idea I've received with the one you wished to deliver, and so from there construct your own feedback. It might take me a bit to gather my thoughts on the matter, though, as it has been a while.




An idea has occurred to me, to keep us occupied... It might seem very silly, but I'll suggest it any way: while we're waiting, why don't those of us who can be bother write some historical background of their character in the supplements section? Now I don't mean a biography, no... I mean a scene taken from their past, in the manner of an rp post. A flashback, if you will. So if I were doing it for Roland, I might write of his first ever assassination. Granted, some of the characters, like Alastor, have less history to choose from than others, like Morturion, but there should still be plenty to write about.

I only suggest this as a way to pass the time, and as an exercise in discovery both for the author and the readers.

We should probably decide on a universal prefix for these, so they can be easily identified, and categorised if need be.

I can't think up anything more imaginative than "Character Histories:"

Or what about "Flashback:". That's more succinct. Any other ideas?

Character history sounds more logical. A flashback means that the character in the RP at some point thinks back and reflects, while it might just be loose stories of important events in their past.

But that is an excellent idea! There are plenty of things I'm able to write up.

Funny thing, I'm leaning towards "Flashback:" the more I think about it: it's more flavourful, more... natural, and, to me, your point is a further plus: while in the actual posts there would be no reference to the character thinking back, I feel like calling it a flashback makes it more... comfortable to fit in. Almost like an excuse, and even though one isn't needed, it makes the supplement's existence more natural, I feel.

Sorry if that was far too vague.

How about calling the supplements Origins/Character Origins, or maybe Whispers of the Past? Not leaning towards it, just some ideas to throw into the mix xD (I know the second one's a bit long).

Memorares or what ever the Latin word for Memories is
Isn't the latin for memory memoriam and is usually used as in memoriam for "In Memory of"?

Mémoires would suit Sylvie quite well but probably not the rest of us.


I keep trying to think of something but all I get is "The Pendulum Swings" >..> I need to read less anime.

Luckily I don't watch them at all!

In fact I don't really watch T.V. at all! Those licenses are pricey :tongue:
