Title: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: Spanner on June 18, 2003, 10:53:08 PM
At last, the RPG begins! I have posted the opening scene for the RPG under the new topic, "The Adventure Begins". Please, when posting under "The Adventure Begins", or any other official game topic, ONLY POST IN CHARACTER. If you have questions or comments, well, that's what THIS topic is for. :)

Anyone can start playing pretty much anytime they want to. My initial post set the stage. Your character can arrive anytime within the two-week period mentioned by Harim. Or afterward, if you'd prefer to wait. Native El-Hazard characters can, of course, show up anytime.

Have fun, everyone!

Well, in an RPG like this one, it's a little like we're all writing a giant fanfic, each of us concentrating on the actions of only one or two characters (i.e., the characters you're playing).

What you should do, is read all of the stuff that's been written (only two posts, so far ;D), decide how that stuff affects your character(s) (it may not affect them at all), and then write a paragraph, or a few paragraphs describing what your character does.

If you'd like a few suggestions, how about this? The Eye of God has been glitching for a few weeks, and it's certainly possible that the Bugrom have noticed. Perhaps they could send your character on a scouting mission to figure out what is wrong (since she's human, she's MUCH less conspicuous than a normal Bugrom soldier when scouting human territories). Then, along the way, you can meet up with some of the other player characters.

That's just one idea, and you don't have to use it. This game is very open, and you can come up with whatever reasons you like to participate.

First you introduce your char in any way you like. Think of a situation you would like to start or continue a post of another char to interact with him. (meet him.)
read the posts of the others and decide how your char could react in that situation (if he's already involved). Then post something that might fit.  ;D

Well, I've worked it out, and I posted there. I promise I wont get out of hand. :)

I discovered the tower as well.


Title: Re: Comments and Questions
Post by: Spanner on June 19, 2003, 02:09:21 PM
Looks good, Lar!

Oh, and I think this is a good opportunity to bring up a point. Sometimes, when a player introduces an element to the game, other players may change that element in ways that the original player does not expect.

In this case, it is quite possible that Shaylas Raven intended the strange tower to be a standard El-Hazard landmark, one that the natives are quite used to, even though it would seem strange to Nolan, a newcomer to El-Hazard.

Now, though, Lana has come across the tower, and it is a strange thing to her, as well, even though she's lived in El-Hazard her entire life. This could mean one of many things. It could mean that Lana is not very familiar with the area that she is in. Perhaps the only travelling she's done has been in Floristica, and around the Bugrom Hive. It could also mean that the tower is NEW. Perhaps some ancient El-Hazard technological system thrust it to the surface of the planet very recently, for some unfathomable purpose. Perhaps the new tower is even the cause of the Eye of God's strange fluctuations.

The bottom line is, everyone needs to be prepared for their carefully laid plans to fall apart because another player misinterpreted them. Rather than correct the other players to try to keep your plans on track, be flexible, adapt your plans to account for the new angle, or discard them if they are no longer possible. It's all part of the fun, and a true excercise in creativity! Once something is posted, it can be considered permanent. Only in extreme cases will the Moderators allow an event to be changed.

If there IS something that you have planned that you truly do not any interference with, spell it out for the other players in this topic, or another out-of-character topic. It's all right to make plans in advance, and it's also all right to keep those plans secret, if you wish. But if you do, don't be surprised if another player accidentally spoils them.

Well, Shaylas Raven has declared the tower to be the Roshtarian Palace. Since there's pretty much no way that Lana would not recognized THAT landmark, since she used to work there, she must be looking at a different tower.

I hope you're okay with that, Lar!

Me too. I'm Sorry if I impeded on yer plan for yer character's intro in any way :-[

oh btw, How often should we do a post? Should there be a minimum n maximum? I think it'd keep the story in check if we did, that way people would be able to write posts without having the possibility of them being made redundant by others who post more frequently, as well as provide a steady flow of posts so that the story doesnt stall due to a lack of them.

Just a suggestion of course ^_^

Ah, this question pops up in pretty much any freeform online RPG. There's no real clear answer, either - some people simply have more time to devote to a game than others.

It's tough to make actual rules governing posting frequency. If people are forced to post infrequently, then people who can post more often tend to get bored and disinterested in the RPG. If people are allowed to post very frequently, then players that can't keep up tend to get lost and annoyed.

It's also the case that sometimes, rapid posting is desirable. For instance, if your character is having a conversation with someone else's character, that conversation will last a long, long time if you only post once a day. In such cases, it might be better to post back and forth quickly in order to finish the conversation sooner. One-on-one combat between two player characters is another similar case.

I'd suggest that players only post once a day (other than in special circumstances, like the one listed above), but I won't make it a rule. Post as often as you feel comfortable doing, and try not to lose the other players. And don't be afraid to speak up if you're feeling lost yourself - the faster players won't know that they need to slow down unless someone complains.

No, you didn't. I didn't have any plans. So nobody could really interfere with them. But I just smashed a car and tripped over Allan, so it can't be going to badly.  ;)  ;D

Having it as the palace was probably quite a good idea, because that means that Allan, me, Fio and Nolan are all in the same general area, and we can run into each other. Literally.  ;D

*Reads Fujisawa's latest post*

Careful there... Remember that we have a player who is currently playing both princesses. If she doesn't want them to be crooked, then they aren't. Simple as that. If she decides not to play along with your idea, you're gonna have to find another reason why the guards who locked up your player think that the princesses are crooked!

Maybe they have an evil court vizier? ;D

Ah, Jafar... What a great villain he was...

I don't quite know where to add this but I'm sure it'll do fine, it's just a message to Fujisawa.

Fuji, your recent post says you woke up in a bed, but you're already in the Story, if you kept track of me and Nolan's part of the story, you'd know that you're actually on the Ground, knocked out by a fall... No, you haven't awakened yet but you're lying there not too far away from us.

Just to let you know.

Panic...

Quote
As they approached the stranger, they began talking amongst themselves, and then one of the older women took it upon herself to gently lift the man with the help of her husband, and together they slowly began carrying him off to a small home nearby. 'I hope he's okay...' Nolan thought to himself. As he gathered himself, he returned his attention back to the man before him. He had yet to give Nolan a reponse to his question. Frustrated, Nolan continued.


Read that and you'll find out  ;)

I don't read all of them, I just sorta skim... But I definitely do read most of the stuff

Wow, Roshtaria has become quite the military state in the past fifty years, hasn't it? Sadistic dungeon keepers, and now over zealous city guards...

I guess a cold war will do that. :)

It's all good.

Yeah, it does at that, doesn't it? ;D

Since I'm steering the Phantom Tribe right now, maybe I'll look into doing something like that... Hopefully, I'll be able to get Itamar involved in the effort, as well.

Do you have any ideas on how we should do this?


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: executor82 on July 10, 2003, 05:01:16 AM
Besides, I've got another question:

How to name the three priestresses??

As for now we got the name of the Priestress of flame.
Calya-Calya (Karuya-Karuya spoken)
It was supposed to sound different from Shayla-Shayla.

(umm...you might reedit the name in your posts panicpaladin, if you don't mind ;) )

I would like to keep that name, but how about the rest??

I think it would be a good idea to leave the other priestesses unnamed and undescribed until we really need them. After all, we might get new players in the game who would like to play those priestesses! If we do, they would be the ones to decide on names and appearances.

I just thought of something: Calya-Calya sounds awfully close to Kalia-Kalia. I wonder if she gets teased by the older generation about having the same name as a psychotic Demon God. ;D

Guards weren't really smart enough to take things like staffs. I mean, come on! They don't look very dangerous, do they?


Well, actually, a lot of the guards in El-Hazard use staves as weapons themselves. ^_^;; So, it'd be unlikely that they would miss the value of Lan's staff as a weapon.

Don't worry about it, though - perhaps the guards left Lan her staff because they believed she didn't have the skill to use it properly. Or, perhaps, they were hoping that she WOULD try to use it, so that they'd have an excuse to gang up on her and beat the crap out of her. :P

It's a bloody wooden stick! WHat use does does it look to you? I'm not angry, I just forgot that they use staves for weapons. But I mean come on. If some one you were capturing had a long woodem stick, would you feel threatened? Anyway, I don't want the guards to take my staff! I like my staff! :)

I'm going to have to drop out.  There's too much stupid stuff going on in my life right now that I can't focus on any of my RPG activities.

I suppose it doesn't really matter that much here though, since I never actually did anything.  :P

BTW, I can't post until someone else wakes me up, Exe for instance. So, when you come back from seeing that guy, could you find some way to wake me up?


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: executor82 on July 12, 2003, 03:37:02 PM
Well, I could do that, but not today...I'll be gone in about 5 mins! A friend is allready waiting for me.

But you could also wake up while the doctor is taking care of you or she could wake you up  ;)

But if you want to, I could wake you up. Actually I even thought of waking you up. But you would have to wait until I'll come back tomorrow. (or better in a few hours)  ;)



Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: larewen_evenstar on July 12, 2003, 03:45:16 PM
Aw, okay. I just can't think of a way to wake myself up.

BTW, just so the rest of you know, if I type something that makes it seem that, in the RPG, I have fallen in love with Kane, I haven't. It's just one of those trusting friends things.

*Chuckles* You don't really need to tell us that. In fact, it might have been better if you didn't. If Executor thought your character was falling in love with his, and had his character respond accordingly - well, it could result in all kinds of silly romantic humor, no?

On the other hand, if having characters fall in love with your character makes you uncomfortable, you're certainly free to request that it not happen. :)

No problem. That is why I included Yumi into all this. She is a character which is still fallen for Kane although she didn't see him some time and there have been some things in the past that have strained their relationship.

But Kane can't deal with women because of his loss of experience. The only women he ever got known with were Shayla-shayla, his mother, his sister and Yumi. So he doesn't really know how to react in certain situations. But he tries to do his best  ;)


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: larewen_evenstar on July 14, 2003, 06:26:29 AM
Well, I think Yumi's a great char. But I need to change my hair colour, because when I drew my character, she didn't look like she would have blue hair, she looked more a brunette, like me, so I need to change that.

Rosh said that, she is still going to participate in the RPG, but she will be and I quote: "MIA, missing in action" but she will try to post as much as she can.

Do as you need it. So your char will be brunette.

I hope so. She was the one who started all this after all.

You don't HAVE to have relationships within the game that mirror relationships in real life, you know! In fact, it's best that you didn't - there's a risk that you'll end up using the game forums for real-life flirting and stuff, rather than actually playing the game!

I won't forbid it, though - it's your choice. But remember that you and Rosh already have something in reality (well, at least as close to reality as the Internet ever gets). An RPG is a chance to escape from and rewrite reality. It lets you experiment with ideas that would never work in real life. If you bring too much of reality into the game, it can become stale and unspontaneous, with everything already planned out.

Have you considered the possibility that Lan and the princesses of Roshtaria might hate each other's guts, and never even become friends, let alone love interests? ;D It might be an interesting inverted reflection to your relationship outside of the game.


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: larewen_evenstar on July 14, 2003, 08:27:33 AM
Hey, I didn't think this up. Rosh said that I had to post my char. spec so that she had someone to fall in love with. I know the RPG doesn't have to mirror RL, but it was Rosh's desision. I just play along. But I do have one idea that I need her for, so I hope she actually posts sometime soon.

I know that you were wating outside and it was supposed that you would catch up with me ;). Kane could miss you somehow but it was supposed to meet you for sure!

So to see it that way, he just left the house and decided to head for the marketplace.
I have re-edited the post a bit.

Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: Spanner on July 19, 2003, 07:21:11 PM
Shaylas Raven and Panicpaladin, just some slight corrections:

In your recent postings, Afura has noted that she doesn't know of any way to return to Earth, and that there is no one that guards or controls it.

Well, the first isn't really true - both Ifurita and Makoto have successfully used the Eye to travel to Earth. But it's possible that Afura was just lying to prevent them from getting their hopes up; after all Makoto and Ifurita are not on El-Hazard at the moment, and there's no telling when (if ever) they will return.

As for the latter, the twin princesses can control the Eye. Of course, they can't control it well enough to send anyone to Earth, so Afura might have lied to cover that, as well.

Just want to make sure that you know yer schtuff!


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: Spanner on July 20, 2003, 12:17:15 AM
Welcome back, Rosh! Even though there's a lot to read, I'd highly recommend that you try. There's quite a bit that indrectly involves your character, mainly involving Lana (Lar's character) and the sadistic bastards that the royal family apparently hires to guard their dungeons. ^_^;;

I don't have time to write a summary right now. Perhaps I do it tomorrow, if no one beats me to the punch. Again, though, nothing compares to reading it yourself to pick up on the details that a summary might miss!

After we met at the healers Kane went to the marketplace to get some tobacco, but as he reached the place it eas full of guards looking for him and Lana. His sister was there too and he first wanted to get out of there, when suddenly a little boy catched sight of him and called for the guards. Kane escaped on the roof of a building, but was found by his sister, who wanted revenge for the fact that she had to pay the damages he caused. They started to fight and in the end Kane was knocked down. Yumi dragged him back to the healers and paniced. First Lana, then Dr Jabadijan took care of him. Then Princess Fiore (Rosh) appeared who had watched the fight and then followed Yumi and Kane to the healers..........meanwhile the others had a good talk at the palace and met the other princess  ;)

Just a quick note, executor - your last post was technically breaking the rules. Remember, you're allowed to have your character throw a punch, but it's up to the player controlling the other character to decide whether it hits, or not.

Still, Fujisawa didn't seem to mind, so we'll let it pass this time. ;)

And to everyone, sorry I haven't been paying much attention to this RPG lately - I've been pretty busy. And I'll still be busy a little while longer. But don't worry! I haven't given up!


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: executor82 on August 02, 2003, 05:50:16 AM
Well, I know that this could be taken for an offend on the rules, but at this moment, I thought that the surprise effect would be on Kanes side so that Miles couldn't react for sure. He was stunned himself because of that what happened before. And Kane is trained to have fast reflexes so that it all happened pretty fast. He is a martial artist after all  ;D

Just for explanation ;)

Man, after that dramatic farewell, Dr. Jabanijan is gonna be kinda embarrassed if he actually survives, won't he? ;D


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: executor82 on August 10, 2003, 04:26:42 PM
Hmmm......true. So let's better take care of letting him die for sure! *diabolic grin*

(Well, or just let him disappear for some time ???)


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: larewen_evenstar on August 11, 2003, 06:56:34 AM
Can I kill him? I have a plan on how to kill him, but I don't want to unless I have permission.


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: executor82 on August 11, 2003, 08:32:24 AM
unless he has survived it somehow you might. It's your decision. But be aware that if Yumi finds out about it she would hate you for the rest of her life. But right now she isn't there. So you might do it if you want to.


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: larewen_evenstar on August 11, 2003, 08:43:36 AM
Yey! Then I'll kill him. Don't worry, I say he survived.
It would be kinda cool if yumi found out, then I'd have another enemy.

I'll go modify it just now.  ;D


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: executor82 on August 11, 2003, 08:53:16 AM
Correction! Unfortunately it seems that you'd have at least two new enemys. If Kane found out, he would never forgive you as well, I think. And you know that he's the short tempered type.

After all the doctor has been one of his oldest friends  ^^;


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions

Bad news, I've gotta go to Seattle to visit my sister. It's fine with me but with teh forums and all...

Kane's gonna hafta god-mod me, I woudl ask Spanner but he's ahrdly on, or hardly posts either way.

You two fight about it. I just have to say one thing:

Whoever does decide to do that, don't do anything stupid with the character... please  -_-

That's all, I'll be going friday.

*Nods* I do pay attention to this forum every day; I just haven't been posting often.

At any rate, even if I WAS participating regularly, it really is a better idea to have someone who's closely involved with the thread temp the character for a while. They'll simply have a better idea of what's going on.

Enjoy your trip!

Guess what? This Marriot has broadband! I'm happy about it as well. This way however, I would be able to moderate the forums a bit, maybe even post a few.

I've never been to Seattle before, and it's quite interesting, plus it seems to be rainy often. Bah!

It doesn't matter, what does matter is that I am here to watch over thee. The main problem is that my labtop is a mac, so I can't play anything good >.<

Anyway, just to let you know..

One last thing, if anyone where lives in seattle, tell me what good things there are to see.. uhh, please  ^^;

Ok; firstly, I believe I should announce that I am back...

Now what I wanted to say:

Panicpaladin, the picture of your dude looks like someone from Blue Gender. I'm just curious, did you base it off of that, or was it a mere coinkidink?


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: executor82 on September 07, 2003, 07:54:26 PM
Ummmm....could anybody hurry up!? I'm getting kinda bored while my char is unconscious and Fuji seems to be in trouble, too. :P

In my oppinion it'd be quite unrealistic to wake up myself in this bad state. :-/

HURRY UP! I NEED MEDICAL ATTENTION! I'M DYING! :bawl

Inner bleedings are nothing to take easy.


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: Fujisawa4654 on September 07, 2003, 08:00:05 PM
Oh, THAT's why... D'oh

Ok in 1 or 2 posts I'll find a way, guaranteed

If I don't.. You can hurt my character so bad that only my brain survived and I become a cybor r something...

No wait nvm


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: executor82 on September 07, 2003, 08:18:16 PM
Anyway, it seems that the players are quite decimated or at least posting rarely in the RPG.

I think we should do something about this!
Any suggestions?

Also the players are splitting up a little. If there is a major event they should gather together as quick as possible so that we could interact better and get known to each other. Also we could use a common enemy for example.  ;)


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions

Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: executor82 on September 08, 2003, 12:04:05 PM
ohuh! Are you planning something again?

BTW, how about the others? We could use some more players!

We could use somebody like LGJ i. e. ;) He's the perfect 'Bad Guy'! He could follow his role and be the grandson of Jinnai or so ;D

How about it LGJ?? ;)

And I think we gonna find something suitable for Xel too! How about it?  ;)


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: larewen_evenstar on September 08, 2003, 12:21:12 PM
Yeah. I think LGJ would make a great Jinnai Grandson.

But it does mean he has to be mean to me.  :bawl

See, I forgot to say that Jinnai (lets just call him that to save me time), even though he rescued Lan, still hates her, because, even with her power, she is a setback for the Bugroms because she is too close to the Roshtarians.


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: Fujisawa4654 on September 08, 2003, 06:01:01 PM
Hm yes, LGJ WOULD make a good bad dude, but he might not.. Want to.

He has wrote a fanfic, or at least 1 chapter I THINK, so he might be interested.

I can't pursuade him though, not me, I can't persuade ANYONE on anything for anything, anywhere...

Lar and Raven, I put my trust into thee, do not fail, or thou will.. will... Well I'm not a mean guy so nvm.

What about asking him nicely?  ^^;
We don't need to force him, I think  ;)

Like 'HEY LGJ! HOW ABOUT LETTING THE BAD GUY HANG OUT A LITTLE AND KICK SOME ROSHTARIAN ASSES? MEET US AT THE RPG AND TRY YA LUCK! AND DON'T FORGET BRINGING UP YA PEONS TO MESS AROUND WITH!  ;D'

I think that could work?  ;)

We don't have to get rough here you guys! We can still go on posting on the RPG.

If just somebody would finally give Kane some medical attention, I could go on posting. Or have I to do it myself?  :-/ (ya know, in my oppinion it would still be quite unrealistic  :P )

Hmmm.....I'd like to know how Kane will react when he finds himself in that strange ship.  ;)

I'd post, but I was last to post anyway. I'm waiting on Fuji posting. His brother needs to say something, from what I remember, I think he's the enemy, and I'm thinking/trying to kill him. :P

Thanks mate  ^_^V Now all we gotta do is get Miles to notice me. Or Lar, or Yumi  ^^; Or even any other characters.

On another note, I feel like sharing with you the horror that is Nolan's 'car'. I chose for my char to drive an '85 Ford Tempo, 2-door model. Here's a pic of one that'll give you an idea of what the thing looks like. Main difference is Nol's is white:

1985 Ford Tempo, 2-door

Post by: executor82 on October 24, 2003, 02:39:00 PM
I think that the ship would be the fastest way to get you some. They fixed Kane in no time! ;D

But I think it'll be a little troublesome to get Calya into the ships sick bay. They won't like her too much. Well, ok. She isn't really injured, just anesthetized.

I'm sure that Kane and Mia will take care of Calya in the first place, especially Kane! So don't count on HIS help. ^^;

*Sniffs, teary-eyed* And you even did a piccy of Itamar, in spite of the terrible way I've been neglecting this RPG. It looks great, PanicPaladin.

Well, Itamar's definitely more of a follower than a leader like Jinnai's Grandson. He'll pretty much be following the orders of the Phantom Tribe, once they manage to convince him that their cause is just.

Oh, and just so you know, the spelling is I-T-A-M-A-R not Imitar. Imitar sounds sorta like the name you'd give a shape-changing villian from some cheesy comic book. ;D



Imitar: Behold, I am Imitar, Master of Imitation! I can imitate the shape of anything! Hoo ha! *Changes into a toaster; makes toast*

Captain Justice: There's no way we can fight power like that! Run everyone! Run! The world is doomed! DOOOOMED!!!



Itamar, on the other hand, is a genuine Hebrew name - though I'll confess that I have no idea whether it was a name commonly used in the World War II era. I basically picked it out of a Hebrew baby names website. XD

How could I forget about Lana's eye-colour changing? :P


Edit: Isn't it about time to move onto another Chapter? If you made 20 minute episodes out of what's done in the current chapter, we'd have more than half a good season already.

I'm not good at typing out like a paragraph for a post, it takes alot of imagination and I give everyone props for playing like this but I'm personally not good at it and I like the type in IRC channels and was hoping some other people where as well and we could start a channel like that, that's all...  :-[

The main problem with that style of rpg is the passage of time. Things would move way too slowly for it to be practical  :-/ Unless we were all in one big chat room, and we worked on one big post together. Something like that, maybe. I dunno.  ^^; But I dun see it working very well.

I'd say about 15 to 20 yards.... So I doubt it...

Either way I don't want you all dead! That just screws everything up!

I only took members of the army.. And if you want, you all can say it took the hosue with the ship as well, but somehow you're all alive..

Post by: panicpaladin on November 15, 2003, 12:51:45 PM
(Here's a recap, Lar.)

Allan took Yumi out of the house but the Grenade turned out to be a dud. While outside, Allan and Yumi met Arsyn Reaves, another person in Miles' fleet. Arsyn was very interested in the Preistess Powers. After a talk, Arsyn went off elsewhere. Kane and Miles got into a fight which Miles managed to escape from. He got into a Vehicle and left. The Ship was self-destructed by Miles' command, taking out the Soilders inside and the area around it but it wasn't a very big explosion otherwise.

Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: panicpaladin on November 16, 2003, 02:15:06 PM
There's plenty you could do.

1) Go back to the Bugrom, I'm sure Jinnai's grandson is wondering where Lana's gone right now.

2) Go back to the Fire Shrine with Kane (if that's where he lives, I forgot everything about Kane's background).

3) Live with Yumi and me, you could get let off for helping/being a friend of the Fire Priestess and the others.

4) Begin a search for Fiore which probably won't go anywhere unless Rosh returns to the RPG. Worth the adventure anyway, I guess.


Right now, I don't have anything to do either... And I'm wondering where Nolan's going to go/stay. I'll tie in with anybody's story if they need it.

Edit: Nevermind, I just saw you made a post.

Okay, I'm trying to put together a "report" of sorts, being delivered to Nahato by one of his spies, but I found that I'm confused on a couple of issues in the storyline.

First off, how many military ships have appeared? Were they in good condition when they arrived, or damaged? (I know that one promptly crashed.)

Was the ship that Miles self-destructed the same ship that crashed? Or another one?

The ships are, presumably, full of soldiers and stuff. Did they all gain special abilities upon coming to El-Hazard? Or was there something different about the way that they were transported?

Just what condition is Floristica in right now? Its army was almost completely wiped out, right?

Of the main characters, Nolan, Miles, and anyone else that I'm forgetting who came from Earth, have any of them discovered their special abilities, yet? Have they started to use them regularly? Has anyone witnessed them using them?

I think that's all I need to know for now...


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: panicpaladin on November 18, 2003, 11:45:24 AM
1) The Ship that crashed had blown up when it did so. The Ship that was self-destructed was a different one.

2) No idea, the Soilders don't appear to have powers though.

3) Only the Center of Florstica was destroyed which includes the Palace and such, the rest is fine (People still live/work in the Palace though).

4) Nope, none of the Earth folks have discovered their powers.


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: theravenisdead on November 18, 2003, 11:45:12 PM
Actuyally, Nolan has, sort of. When he touched Hitomi, he experienced her thoughts in his own mind (he has the ability to interact with ancient El-hazard technology, such as the Demon Gods (which Hitomi is, sort of  ;D )

Mind you, he still doesnt know what exactly it was he experienced yet


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: Spanner on November 21, 2003, 09:34:37 AM
Just a quick reminder to those participating in the Nolan/Allan/Hitomi thread:

Upon coming to El-Hazard, everyone has been granted the mysterious ability to speak the same language. So, even though Nolan's from Canada, Itimar's from Czechoslovakia, and Hitomi's from Japan, they all speak perfect El-Hazardian.

You haven't done anything wrong so far, but now that the characters are starting to talk about where they are from, I wanted to make sure that no one slipped up and started throwing in Japanese words, or anything like that - Hitomi thinks she's speaking Japanese already, so it wouldn't make any sense.


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: theravenisdead on November 21, 2003, 09:58:34 AM
Not an issue so far  8) Hitomi just mentioned the fact that her last name was Japanese, referring to it as an earth family name. Other than that we're all speakin' El-Hazardian  ;D


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: Tsukasa on November 21, 2003, 05:09:28 PM
Yeah Hitomi jsut mentions that, that is her family name apart from her name she is a EL-Hazardian

Ah, I see - for some reason, when your bio mentioned that she and her parents disappeared from El-Hazard, I got the impression that she spent her time on Earth in Japan.

And on the topic of Makoto, I wish I had caught this earlier... There was a post somewhere that made people think that Makoto was killed by one of the spacecraft? I'm afraid that just doesn't work - Makoto has been missing since before the game started. In the very first post of the RPG, it was mentioned that the scientists of the Alliance had no idea what to do about the Eye of God because Makoto, the man with the most knowledge of it, had disappeared years ago. He might be dead, but if he is, it's not the spaceship that caused it.

I'm not sure how to fix this problem, but anyone that's been in Floristica anytime in the past several years or so should know that Makoto's not home. Perhaps all of the people who think he's dead have been away from Floristica for a long time?


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: theravenisdead on November 24, 2003, 07:53:40 PM
I agree, Makoto is simply missing. Though to explain why some think he's dead, since he has been missing for so long many may assume that he's dead. But of course he IS still alive. somewhere ^.^

As a result I havnt been doing much other than staying in bed (I could barely stand up a few days ago...  -_- ). I'm really sorry for this  :'(

As I am not sure when I'll be back to normal again, I'm gonna give executor82 permission to godmod me until I'm fully recovered. I 'may' do a post today, but I wouldnt count on it.

Post by: Wayne on January 12, 2004, 02:41:32 AM
I'll assume this is the right place for a question, then.  ;D

This looks interesting... I'm a fan of El Hazard (naturally... else why would I be here? *chuckles*) and also writing/roleplaying (I'm sure nobody cares about resumes; but I DM a D&D game and have participated in a few online writing projects, most anime/RPG-game based). Most online RPs tend to die off pretty quickly, but this one's been going for awhile (and I see chapter 3 has quite a few pages in just roughly two months, which is pretty rare)... so it might just be the real deal, eh? :]

Anyway; I was just wondering if y'all were still taking applicants, and if so how much of the backstory should I read to "catch up" (I've been skimming most of chapter 3, although it's not exactly making sense on its own, heh)? Also, and I've already looked at the character guidelines (and they're quite good; I'm glad to see the mods are concerned about potential powergaming)... but how useful (or disruptive) would it be to play an antagonist of sorts? From what I've read it seems like there's not a whole lot of conflict, and while that's definitely good at times, it tends to stagnate faster (plus-- and maybe this is too many years of playing evil NPCs :D-- I just like writing as bad guys).

Probably someone from the Shadow Tribe (no surprise, being a Kagato fan, eh?), if that's alright. And if not, that's fine, too-- I just like doing some writing in my off time, and I'd like to chip in to help keep an online RP going (since they are pretty rare, let alone one for an anime I like, like El Hazard).

Sorry for being so long-winded (and also if this was, indeed, the wrong place for a question like that).

But let's wait what the Mods will say.

Panic, I dunno if you've read my post, but actually Kane and Yumi were already supporting Lana and about to carry her upstairs into the room next to Nolan's.

Also Kane wanted to have a word with Yumi, so that she shouldn't go to sleep so soon.

WAYNE! YOU'RE JUST THE PERSON WE'RE LOOKING FOR!

We indeed need some sort of evil character. I was going to plan mine to go evil at some point if there was no good vs evil conflicts.

Anywho, the other mod, Spanner, and another member (I think it was Tsukasa) are in the Shadow Tribe as well.
They've been inactive for so long though... I don't know if you should join the Phantom Tribe.

It's your call though. If you want I can sorta skim over everything and make notes on major events. Although I'd suggest you create your caracter in the.... uhh.. What was it called?.....

Post character stuff.. I forget.. Something like that.

After that I can give an approval and whatnot. Give an outline.

Better still, if you have AIM, you should contact me on that.

And thanks for joining!

It's my pleasure; and thanks for the reply. Yeah, I've got AIM; I'll go ahead and add you (and I'm "holyknightwayne"-- long story; I used to be a Tactics geek :D). And I'm looking forward to it; I have a few ideas, of course, but I'm pretty flexible; and I have plenty of time right now to write with.


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: Wayne on January 14, 2004, 05:13:44 PM
Apologies for the double-post, but when you edit frequently nobody notices. *chuckles*

OK... I read chapters 2 and 3, and I think I'm caught up; and ready to pitch in. Before I do, though; I want to make sure this is right:

-A spaceship crashed on Floristica (?), doing all sorts of property damage. Most of the PC cast were captured, but got away.
-Miles (Fujisawa) helped in that and seems to be with the "good guys" now (with a WANZER!, no less ;D).
-Kane (Exe, as he likes being called, apparently :]) still doesn't trust him (must be the Shayla genes, heh). Cayla does (and she's an NPC, right?).
-Itamar (Spanner) and Shitia (TVIfurita) are involved in a sideplot, and neither's active right now (?).
-Lan/Lana (Larewan) was with Jinnai, left after his "request" (heh) to spy on the main PC group at Nanami's Diner (that's almost a catchy restaurant name :D), but she was recognized.
-The main group drove (via WANZER! or car) back to Floristica, ate and caught up at above diner, then went to Yumi's house, where currently nobody is actually sleeping, because:
-Lan went into some sort of fit, was helped, then ran back off to Jinnai (who went off on his own after the royal family (which currently consists of...?)).

Anything in the above with question marks would be helpful to know, but I think I can get by. Also, do I need to know anything more about Yumi besides that she's a good-looking NPC female doctor who flirts with Kane? I guess I missed when she was introduced, heh.

Input (either answers or corrections) is very welcome. :) And I'll go ahead and write something in the meantime.


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: executor82 on January 15, 2004, 11:26:56 AM
Wayne got my permission to use my char.

BTW, I think that our little dispute about the marines would be just the perfect way to safe Kane's skin right now, Fuji!!!! *hint, hint* Or anyone else!? You got my permission as well to use Kane for this. Just let him evade that poisoned needle!!!!

Yumi is still busy waking up Calya, so that they are no help right now :P.

------

About your questions, Wayne:

Actually Lana was spying the palace to gather information for Jinnai. The rest seems right to me.

About Yumi:

She's the daughter of the healer Dr. Jabanijan and Kanes childhood friend. She fell in love with him a long time ago and now tries to win his heart after he finally had returned to Floristica. Her father was seriously injured and about to die during the crash, but finally Lana killed him. Before the ship flattened the clinic, Kane had to promise the Doctor to protect Yumi with his life. (Not without any ulterior motives  ;) ) He knew that his daughter loves Kane and he likes him as well. He'd wish that they marry some day.

The relationship between them is quite complicated. Yumi, although teasing him from time to time, is to shy to show her true feelings and whenever she tries, Kane doesn't know how to deal with it. He doesn't have too much experience with people in general as he has been travelling El Hazard for a long time, rarely meeting any person. He was all about developing his skills.

His sister Calya knows about all that and it's just a matter of time until she'll interfere to push Kane into the right direction.  ;D


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: Wayne on January 15, 2004, 05:19:19 PM
Ah, thanks for explaining that, Exe. Although since I'd finally finished reading round 1 as well, I sort of had that figured out; but I do appreciate it. :]

And... well, if you're up to it, I was thinking about simply having Kane dodge (or someone step out and distract him so that Xan simply misses, because Kane moved :D), so we can get to that fight scene we were thinking about. After all, the EHRP could use a nice bit of mano a mano shounen-style violence. *laughs* Seriously, it would be cool, though.

That reminds me, though-- how would this RP handle combat between two PCs? The traditional "don't write the other character" viewpoint is great for dialogue, but in a fight where both participants are active I could easily see something like that blossoming into two dozen or more posts (depending on how long the fight is).

In some other RP'ing I've done the usual compromise is to trade off... one person starts, writing both characters fighting, and his own character's dialogue (maybe a little of the opponent's). After an exchange the other writer takes over, writing his character's reaction as well as both people fighting, and so on until [a pre-arranged, usually] someone wins (or there's a draw, or interruption).

Of course, among immature writers this inevitably leads to "godmodding" ("My character avoids defeat with some awesome technique and leaves yours in the dirt, eat that!" "But wait, my character really dodged it at the last second, and now you go..."), which is why this would have to be agreed upon ahead of time. And more importantly the key is respect-- both writers read as much as they can of the other character, then try to make sure the actions they write are appropriate and in-character.

For example, let's say two RP'ers were writing a fight between Ifurita and Shayla-Shayla (which can't happen in this RP, of course, making it a safe example).

The first writer (writing as Shayla) would begin the fight, focusing on Shayla's point of view (most of the dialogue is hers). She attacks, Ifurita defends; he describes several moves worth of combat (primarily using Shayla's various moves, while Ifurita primarily dodges, uses her staff's cannon, etc.; basic stuff), then says something else, temporarily pausing it.

Writer #2 takes over as Ifurita and writes it from her point of view; doing more creative things (like maybe shooting down a wall behind her or going kung-fu on the redhead like she did on Kalia ;D), while Shayla's written more simplistically (fire attack her, cartwheel back to dodge, etc.). The focus on the dialogue (if any) is Ifurita's; he writes the other character conservatively.

Back to writer #1, who (as they've previously agreed) writes Shayla getting owned. Afura says something witty on the sidelines; Nanami collects the bets she took.

The writers shake hands and the RP moves back on track.

...like that, basically. The key there is respect, and what best moves the "plot" along (such as it is).

...anyway, this is obviously on a case-by-case basis, and not everyone wants to write fight scenes; and those that do don't want the vitriol that comes with watching someone horribly misuse your characters.

...anyway, was that long enough? *laughs* I'd like to hear the mods' input-- just keep in mind that "non-peaceful" interaction is one of the keys to [occasional] antagonist RPing, and on a purely "write your own character" level is extremely cumbersome (and I know that most of the others don't want to sit and wait for two writers to sort out a massive collection of posts back-and-forth when a handful of longer, cooperative work is much easier).

And I wanted to get this out of the way before we really get into the fighting, heh.  8)

Yeah, you're right, Kane could simply dodge the needle or move, but this would be quite boring in my oppinion. ;D

So I'm counting on Fuji or anyone else to distract him in some way. The dispute about the marines or Nolans curiosity about what happened between Kane and Yumi would be perfect.

Besides, Kane isn't paying too much attention as he is sunken in thoughts right now, so that he'd barely move or even notice the needle. Consequently someone has to interact with him to safe him from that poisoned dart. ;)

The fight will come next, for sure! ^_^V
We can start and stick our heads together to develope the fight, I am ready. |D

------

You're absolutely right about the fighting system. We also practiced it already. It was the fight between Kane and Miles.  ;D

Well, the last fight scene between 2 PCs was me vs Kane. I did the writing under exe's permission. I did my best to keep them within their characters. (I obviously like guns but I didn't use much of it so.. I got owned)

Apparently exe liked that post. If you 2 agree, I could try something again, if not, that's ok, I've got the "playing field" set up as it is.

Although since you haven't made many posts Wayne, It might be hard to act within your character's attitude.

But once again, if I get the all-clear, I can write it out. If one of you want something done during the fight, tell me and I'll be sure to add it.

Post by: Wayne on January 16, 2004, 02:41:34 AM
Alright, thanks, Fujisawa. Nice way to start things off (the only problem was that I mentioned Xan was still in his "disguise," so he looks like a normal person instead of his blue skin-- nobody will know he's Phantom Tribe until later). :]

Ah, well; I wasn't asking you to write anything for us (yet-- we have to get Miles in the action later on for gunfight hijinks ;)); I was just making sure it was OK to write each other's characters for fights, and Exe pointed out that it was alright-- since you and he had already done so earlier. Which answered the question nicely; thanks for clarifying it. :)

And... if there's no objection (like there would be at midnight-- ha ha, burning the midnight oil wins Wayne another one! ;D), I guess I'll go ahead and get this shindig started. Exe, feel free to write Kane when you get back; and let me know if I got anything wrong (as always), so I can fix it.

Don't worry, I know that you're disguised right now, what Miles doesn't realize is that it's the lenses.. I might make him never find that out because it strains his eyes :)

I'm confused though, Kane is meant to be going to the palace to meet up with Allan and I, so how does any of this work?

*sory, haven't been paying close attention*

Post by: executor82 on January 16, 2004, 11:45:34 PM
You should have read the posts above carefully. Waynes char tried to assassinate Kane, but got caught and now Kane is fighting him and eventually trying to find out who that assassin is.  ;D


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: Wayne on January 18, 2004, 10:56:21 AM
Raven-- Helpful post, thanks; I know Exe and I were thinking of a way to wrap things up nicely and neatly, and he could probably use Nolan getting in there.

Just one thing, though--

Quote
"What does it look like?!" the redhead snapped in reply. "I'm gonna kill him before he kills me!"


"Redhead" there being Kane, not Xan. The oh-so-uncreatively termed "blonde" (not unlike a certain Eastwood movie) is Xan in his disguised form. I don't think the assassin would be worried about the good guy killing him first. ;D

I do apologize if that was unclear originally.[/font]

Do you think we could take Rosh's chracters and use them as a playable character (like yumi) ? Because I think we might need them some time soon.


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: Fujisawa4654 on January 20, 2004, 07:05:09 PM
I had already said that Rosh's characters, the princesses, I forgot their names, are converted to NPC status untill she gets back (fat chance I say)

Go ahead and do whatever ya want, but like in teh RPGs, try to keep them in character.


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: larewen_evenstar on January 21, 2004, 02:38:11 PM
Would it be okay to use them as a character like Yumi (where everyone can use them), though. Because, like I said before, we will probably need the princesses soon. I'm sure Rosh wouldn't mind. She's grounded, so she can't do anything.

I've been noticing that my filler posts are longer than some of the recent "content" posts. *chuckles* That's not a problem, is it? I don't mind if no one reads or not; but I want to make sure it's not construed as clutter or anything (I know a lot of people in RPs simply want "relevant" material).

And it's a shame about Rosh (for "Jewel of Roshtaria," the member, I'm assuming? Confused me for a bit, heh)... it just doesn't feel like, y'know, El Hazard, when they're aren't a lot of women running around outnumbering the men. :D

And (regarding Fuji's last post)... I think Floristica is officially out of soldiers, between the crash and the Bugrom infiltration. ;D If the next RPG thread isn't "Keep Roshtaria from being invaded by one of its multiple enemies!" I'm going to be very disappointed. *chuckles*

Near as I can figure, Lan is chasing Jinnai III and his Bugrom through Floristica; unfortunately the bad guys have been wiping out palace security (I knew they should've invested in Atlas-- if it works for Jerry Springer, anyway :D). She's looking for the Princesses and... after that I'm not sure either. *chuckles* They're both MIA so far, I think.

Panic-- The above is where we're at now, heh. I don't remember this "jar" thing, but before that Kane and Xan had a duel which ended up with both of them banged up quite a bit (Kane went to the palace anyway along with Nolan and Miles; Xan went looking for a Phantom Tribe safehouse in Floristica and is currently being healed). That was a few posts' worth. *chuckles*

And those are really the highlights. The palace/Princess subplot is the main focus now.

I think I've got it... From Miles' post, let me see if I got this right because I'm a bit confused on it (particularly on what Lana said).

"Miles got knocked out of window and into another room's bed, the lights turned on to see that a girl was there. Lana and Allan entered the troom and Miles shot at Lan but it missed."

I don't understand what Lana said by someone being killed, could anyone clear this up for me? :x

For my part, I've been waiting for the Palace subplot business to be done with. The time factor of the RP is completely skewed since the last several pages have taken less than a few hours to finish... and that makes the "recuperating" time pretty painful for those who care enough to factor it in. *chuckles*

Fuji, you might want to consider moving on to the next chapter or something if you have anything in mind. It'd be better than the RP stagnating here-- if it comes to that (and at this rate...).

And Xan is likewise convalescing....

I'll tell you, the most common problem in online RPing is the powergaming, but you can go too far in the opposite direction. *chuckles* Writing your characters into corners with crippling wounds-- especially when multiple people do it at once-- loses the effect and slows things down.

That being said, maybe one of our moderators (*pokes*) might advance time by a bit so everyone can recover at least a little, and try to get things moving again. I'd post, but I've already said I'm out for "six hours," and maybe two (?) have passed in RP time. :| Just a thought....

ok well... #1 panic I don't think is coming back.. I really doubt it.. 2ndly... I appologise but I can never seem to have enough time to do anything... I'm 14, I have a workers permit and my hours are strenuous, at least I get payed $10 an hour :)

I am very happy to know that you all support the progression of the RPG and I have to say sorry for the pause... Next month myhours will be less, I know it for a fact since I got my schedule in the mail. Untill then.. It's doubtful.. Anyways take care guys, hold on tight, be patient, I'll get this RPG back up to rev at some point!


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: Wayne on June 19, 2004, 12:21:56 AM
Well, there's something, at least. I was just browsing EHOL and noticed my last RP post was from about four months ago... oops.  -_-

Anyway, I'm not sure who's doing what (is this building up to the Priestesses attempting a rescue? Most of the "PCs" are captives, heh), but Xan at least has reasons for going after either side, so I could help out there if need be.

For reference, the use of Roshtarian "pulse rifles" comes from OAV 7, where troopers and their cannon emplacements fire what looks like reddish pulses of electricity. I didn't think they used energy weapons until I started to think about "Just how are those humans supposed to fight the Bugrom anyway, when they're smarter, stronger, and in an era before machine guns?" and lo and behold, they have laser guns. *chuckles* I guess it's tradition, though-- ever since Star Wars it's been proven that, despite being much higher-tech, blasters usually miss, and swords and guns still kill people. ;D Oh well.

Y'know, I was just going over the old threads here, and noticed that the RP started on June 18th (or so) of last year. Kinda neat that it's still going on (albeit with fewer writers left) after that long. :]

I'm new to this online community and I've been reading some of the stuff here in the El Hazard RPG section. I've never actually played an ONLINE RPG before, but I've had quite a bit of experience playing old fashioned pencil, paper & dice RPG's - games such as Dungeons & Dragons and Palladium Rifts.

From my gaming experience, it sounds to me like this online version is similar to a L.A.R.P.s gaming session (Live Action Role-Playing). Specifically, the Roleplay part of RPG is stressed over things like action, adventure and skill/attribute development.  (BTW: I never did like the LARPs gaming format...)

Also, from what I've read so far, it sounds like there is some difficulty in keeping interest going in this online RPG, particularly lately. Being that we are all El Hazard fans (else we would not be posting/reading this), I doubt it is from a lack of interest in the subject matter.

Suggestion:
How about a completely fresh approach to this RPG?

Specifically, would members consider an RPG format in which character development is more advanced, the story and game development is largely the responsibility of the G.M. (Game Master) and which takes place interactively?

This is just an idea, but couldn't the El-Hazard universe be converted to an existing RPG format? There are actually a few RPG systems considered to be "Universal" and with which various type of characters and environments can be adapted. Most notably, the G.U.R.P.s RPG system comes to mind... (Which might be perfect, considering that the El Hazard universe can involve introducing characters and creatures from other universes...)

Also, instead of each "player" writing out pages of original character dialog, a different approach might involve the G.M. controlling all N.P.C.s (Non-Player Characters), the story plot AND the environment. Instead of posting once a day, week or month, it might be possible to hold a complete, interactive "gaming session" over IRC or chat - possibly lasting an hour or two at a time. (Though, obviously, such a system would require all participants to agree to chat online at a specific date and universal time...)

Personally, such an El-Hazard RPG system would sound much more appealing. (I'm not a terribly good storyteller and have no real interest in a story-based RPG). It just might breath more life into this forum section and, perhaps, even this community.

Some interesting suggestions, Life_matrix! I thought I'd point out that an El-Hazard pen-and-paper Roleplaying game DOES exist. It is produced by Guardians of Order, and is part of their "Big Eyes, Small Mouth" line of roleplaying games.

Personally, I'm a little burnt-out on roleplaying games now, both online and off, and likely would not participate in something like this would it be organized. Still, it sounds like a fabulous project!


Title: Re: *OOC* Comments and Questions
Post by: Wayne on May 17, 2005, 06:49:39 PM
I'm a huge fan of D&D, and I agree-- a "game" format keeps peoples' interest and attention much longer than a round robin-style "mass fanfiction" thing does* (the only one I've ever seen be halfway successful was the one right here on EHOL-- and even then it ended with only a few active people posting). The only problem is that many times the people interested in writing online aren't into gaming; and people that are into P&P gaming don't do so online (there is a sizeable minority of folks who play by e-mail or via IRC, though; this is true).

So while I would certainly be up for this (assuming we get a good system going-- BESM would be much more accurate than D&D, but I don't have any of the books in that system), I don't know how many other people would be. A lot of the old writers in the RP here are no longer active, for one thing.

*For example, I participate in "Survivor"-style writing tournaments in which a host writes a story, and a bunch of people "sponsor" characters from video games or anime [or whatever else the host allows] to join in. During the course of the game (typically divided into 7 rounds) the sponsors use "votes" or abilities to eliminate one another, until the final round, and ultimately one person wins.

They're reasonably entertaining, and we have some coming up in the summer. If you (Life Matrix; or anyone else) is interested, I can expound on it more. In any event, the main website for Survivors is Random Insanity (http://forum.randominsanity.org/) (particularly these (http://forum.randominsanity.org/viewforum.php?f=36&sid=957bc7c7ccd5fcffc211c19b8e6b9d95) two (http://forum.randominsanity.org/viewforum.php?f=30&sid=957bc7c7ccd5fcffc211c19b8e6b9d95) forums); the most recent one took place here (http://forum.taikaiwiki.com/viewforum.php?f=5&sid=3e19b1ef1ff6329d38abd4ca3aa09f05). It can seem kind of odd or intimidating at first, but one gets used to it in time. (I'm running one of these tournaments myself in December, which will allow anime characters; if it's OK with Rob, and assuming there's still active people at EHOL by then, I'll probably advertise for it here later.)

This is rather sad.  I finally find a place that has a good quality El Hazard roleplay and it's been dead for a year or three. :'(

If there is anyone interested in getting a new roleplay started... please let me know.  If we can even get five people together we can set up a core plot and start getting the word out.  I'm not going to post an application until there is enough interest to warrant it.

I have respect for other media and other rule systems but I am a fan of novel style roleplaying.  This allows more time for character development as well as development for plot and abilities.  The people, and not just the characters, learn and develop.
