Terminated (TS): OOC TOPIC



  • support, discussion, and miscellanaia

    This is the Out of Character topic for the Cythera Team Story Terminated. I'll start by saying...

    Can I join?



  • Of course you may join! Please feel free, everyone and anyone, to join the TS! :D



  • Update: I've now officially joined the TS myself!

    Where is everybody else anyways?



  • I'm working on my opening post. I never was one for the 'Adventurer sets out on his quest' opening, so I'll drop in as soon as my post is written. Don't start the time machine without me!

  • "You know you're slow if Wizard beats you to the punch."



  • I'll try to join later tonight. I'm still debating wether to use Yomu or not, I don't supose it could hurt.



  • Ta-daaaah! Introducing Cyrus and Gem (the pendant).

    Cyrus is basically the Rincewind of Cythera-- low power levels, high facility for making magic-- any magic-- malfunction. Then he met Gem. Now, everything's the same... except for the fact that he now has high power levels, (still) no luck with magic, and an irritable invisible friend with a personality like a cross between that of Bartimaeus and The Grinch.

    Gem is a magical pendant that has bonded to Cyrus. Acquired under strange circumstances by Cyrus, it boosted his power levels, but couldn't cure his ability to make a hash of any magical working of any kind. Although somewhat irritable, it seems to enjoy being bonded to Cyrus.

    That said, we still don't know its intentions, motivations, or why it was deep underground, sealed in a cave, and locked up with a security system that used four talking, intelligent demons.



  • Perhaps, I should just go ahead and perform the time jump? Anybody that wants to join afterward could just say their character had been with the group all along.

    Just a friendly reminder, SIB, but you might want to go ahead and add your characters to the Character Info thread :) .

    EDIT:
    Incidentally, I'd prefer it if the group reached Odemia without any adventures. The story is supposed to occur in the past with a short space for joining, although I fear that space will be lengthened if more people don't join.



  • SIB: Librarians rule oook. winks

    I'm here, and joined. Hope that helps with numbers.



  • Cyrus and Gem have been logged into the Character Info topic.



  • I plan to go ahead and timejump the characters back to the past later today.

    I'm not certain whether or not they should know at the start that they have to protect Alaric, but I'm inclined to believe they should. Does anyone else have an opinion?

    Incidentally, in another TS in which the characters ended up in a past Cythera, the land was shown to be somewhat less hospitable because Alaric had yet to assume the position of Land King, and I think that I will use this idea.

    Sounds good. And as for them knowing about Alaric being in danger, I think that they should be aware of the objectives of their mission before they go back. Hopefully it will give them more motivation.

    BTW, I've posted with them arriving at Odemia. There is still time for everyone to join them there before they jump in the past. As Selax suggested, you can also just write your character in later as though he/she had been with them all along even if you don't get in before the time jump. The early posts are pretty ambiguous about who all is actually in the group. . .



  • Hmm, out of curiosity, what did the group do with their boat? Did they hide it or leave it sitting out in the open?



  • i believe it was destroyed/absorbed by the barnacle thing?

    Selax- I have a slight issue with your post, but i think we could stick with it..

    I was thinking that Radik had challenged "it" to a duel (appearing human to blend in :?) and the party had come across Radik not to long after such duel. (He might be able to point out who it is, assuming it doesn't change faces :?) and Radik would love to mess with the guards..

    I'm thinking that he behind from this timeline could help the party reach their objective a little bit faster and I don't know if he'd return with them to the present afterwards or just let time pass when the party leaves.. i think i'm inclined to have him return with the party

    and stay on IRC longer, i can only get home so early :p



  • Ah, poor Cyrus. Stranger in a strange land, lumbered with a guide who doesn't speak any language but Sarcasm.

    I actually would like to see him as The Mixed-Up Magician. Perhaps the party should try passing themselves off as that traveling circus.



  • I'll try to post again this weekend; I'm hoping to be able to write something up tomorrow.



  • I have a general idea on bringing Radik to meet up with the group, or having the group run into Radik (dueling), but I'd prefer to wait for Wizard's post or anyone else's, just so that there is a little more room in between my posts...

    and what happened to everyone else :?



  • Right now I don't really have any idea where Selax wants to go with this. Does Selax have some grand scheme? Is this TS a free for all, plot wise?

    I'd progress the story but I really just don't know where to go with it.



  • I think the general idea is that the party is to finish traveling the way to the nearby city (the name escapes me) or at least thats what seemed to be the current idea of what the party should do from what i've caught from previous posts...



  • I'm probably going to try and get a post up tonight, although I doubt it will be very long. I'm not sure when I'll next be able to post by the way.

    Personally, I'd like this TS to be more open-ended, but I think that all TSs are supposed to open-ended...

    Dark Jet, why would he challenge it to a duel? It looks just like any ordinary person. (I think it probably can shapeshift, being a creature of the Undine.) However, I'm just fine with that idea, if you wish to use it :) .
