Newest TS cast



  • The faster you join, the quicker we start...

    We may possibly have a new TS starting these holidays, but are delayed by lack of cast. If you are interested, please let Selax or I know, and we will update the list.



  • My list now goes:
    Selax
    Wizard (who may or may not join)
    CrazyChick (who isn't going to be very involved for one or two weeks in January)
    cache22 (who may not be able to be very involved, at least not over the holidays)
    Jehezekel
    BreadWorldMercy453 (not actually confirmed, but here's hoping)

    We really need a few more...

  • Since people apparently missed that i said i would join, I will join. However, I would kind of like to know the general story for the TS, and Im going to be gone after/before/during Chirstmas.



  • I confirm ^_^



  • Mmm... I think I'll be able to join, but I can't make definite promises. RL has this way of being a bitch to me whenever I decide to join a TS. But I'll try.



  • My list now goes:
    Selax
    Wizard
    CrazyChick (who isn't going to be very involved for one or two weeks in January)
    cache22 (who may not be able to be very involved, at least not over the holidays)
    Jehezekel
    BreadWorldMercy453
    Dark Jet (who may be gone for some time around Christmas)
    Moonshadow (only a possibility so far)

    For those who want to know the basic storyline, PM Selax or myself.

  • I think I'll go out on a limb and say that I'm going to join. If anything comes up, though, I'll say so.

    Oh, and could you PM me the plot outline, CrazyChick?



  • Yeah I should be in, possibly with a new character, (not sure if i like my old one)
    although i may be a tad busy over the holidays.
    and CrazyChick you should post the plot outline for all to see makes deciding if you want to join or not easier, and im a tad lazy myself :p
    Cheers



  • Mehhh plot outline? Does that mean I can't be creative? ;_;

    I'd rather not see it, myself - I prefer to have things revealed in story fashion. Leaves more room for the imagination to run wild.

    No! Absolutely not! Please, be as creative as you like! Oh, and I'm still waiting. :p

    Oh, and I'm still waiting. :p

    I'm sorry! I swear, it's Zelda's fault!! points at Zelda hiding guiltily in a corner Twilight Princess is just to good.. and I'm one of those people who HAVE to have all the extras. Oh, but I did read it already and have some thoughts on changes/improvements. I just have to compose them into mail/PM. :X

    What we need is not a plot outline, but a goal.

    Say the goal is to give a magnificent bouquet to Alaric, courtesy the Cademian Florist Guild. With that we have a pretty good Idea what could and should not happen on the journey.

    But a plot outline would say something like: On the first day(s) the party journeys to Catamarca, they are attacked along the way. While in Catamarca the bouquet is lost, eventually it is found floating in the ocean, one (or more) of the party members goes to retrive it, Scylla attack. The party continues toward Odemia, and is attacked along the way. One of the steeds/party members tries to eat the bouquet. In Odemia the bouquet is repaired by a local florist. Our brave adventurers journey on toward Landking Hall, They get caught in the middle of a stampeding titan herd. When they finally escape, they enter Landking Hall and present the bouquet with due apologies.

    The plot outline leaves some room for creativity, (exactly how does all that work out?) But it leaves no room for coming to an understanding with ruffian welding Titans, and being shown the secret way to Landking Hall. Nor does it allow for avoiding Catamarca altogether, and heading up past the flax farm. Nor does it allow for Alaric to be on a hunting trip at Charax's house!

    Sometimes the story just has to take a new route to survive, make sure that the goal is understood, and be prepared to change your outline.

    That said, something a little stricter than the goal I wrote would be fine, and probably a good idea. (I'd better stop writing now, before I start absolutely blithering.)

    Creativity is a bannable offense.

    cache22 (who may not be able to be very involved, at least not over the holidays)

    BreadWorldMercy453

    Moonshadow (only a possibility so far)
    Pippin 3

    I am going to put the plot outline in a spoiler so you don't have to see it if you don't want to. It's very basic, with loads of room for creativity. Selax has the acutal location of the item in question: I will see if I can get him to post it here.

    Spoiler

    Someone in the tavern has heard about a mystical sword that grants immense power to the wielder. They (naturally) decide to form a party and look for it. On the way, they discover a band of ruffians are also searching for the sword, and if the adventurers don't stop them and get the sword first, all Cythera will be plunged into chaos as the ruffians take over LandKing Hall.

    For those of you that read it, what do you think? Is it worth writing as a TS?



  • When is a good date to start the TS?

    Eeeexcellent. My old e-mail address is defunct, use cache22nz@gmail.com if you e-mail it rather than PM. I might not see it straight away, though, as I'm not checking e-mail regularly while on holiday.



  • As soon as possible. We have small pause as I go up the page to count 9 people joining in, with a few away for some weeks. I think that's enough - I am fine to start this year.



  • Hmm, I was thinking the twenty-seventh or twenty-eighth; is either of those acceptable for everyone?



  • Ooh, yes, go on whenever ^_^ I don't see why it even matters exactly when we start, unless we're all expected to post on the first day. . .



  • @selax_bot, on Dec 25 2006, 12:55 PM, said in Newest TS cast:

    That'd be fine for me, I think. Things here look like they're going to stay pretty quiet for a while, so I should be able to keep checking in once every day or two.
