Do you like forum social games?

Do you like RPGs?

Can you input one order every weekday and one over the weekend most of the time?

Re: The Essence of the Thing: Out of Character/Signup Thread
Ground Rules:

1. Everything in this game is meant to be intentional. Sometimes I screw up and have to try and fix it, but in general, I will clarify if something is NOT meant to be the way it is. You are also free to ask if I made a mistake or intended to do something weird/off, and I will freely tell you. =)

2. You may chat in any chat open to you. I am religous about locking chats down while they shouldn't be open. You may post whatever you want into said open chats - in game consequences will differ, but nothing you do will get you in trouble with me as the mod!

3. This is an RPG as well as a series of social games. Feel free to experiment, feel around, try stuff. Because of this, it is hard for me to answer questions about what you "should" do.

4. The OOC thread is as open to you as I can make it. The only rule on what you can talk about is that you shouldn't say anything that disrupts the current round of a game, if that game is being played straight. How cooperative or individual an experience of a journey through the game you want to have is up to you. =)

5. The only communications from me as a person are labeled as such in Cassy. Anything from a character is from that character, which means I sometimes can't clarify for you or explain why they've said what they've said.

6. I am only expecting one input a day, and the game is built to make it so everyone has something to do every day. Occasionally, you might end up with optional other things to do or extra things to input, but that's never required.

Please note that signups are now closed, with RoyalApe's potentially pending. No one other than him will be joining at this time, but future involvement in some way is not impossible!

Re: The Essence of the Thing: Out of Character/Signup Thread
This thread is open for posting, and will remain so. There are no limitations to posting in this thread, beyond anything we discussed via GM if you are someone who asked a question to figure out if you would enjoy the game.

Participation in this thread is not mandatory, and what you choose to do with it or not is entirely at player discretion!


I've linked it to the game in Cassy as a subthread to make it easier to find.

Re: The Essence of the Thing: Out of Character/Signup Thread
I think I've done everything necessary for a start tomorrow, we're on time! Expect an in character start post in this thread:

The Essence of the Thing: Original In Character Thread

A few ground rules of communication:

An in character "day" will standardly be 24 hours from the time an input is possible (or all weekend), but it'll always be referred to as 24 hours in-character. It will come with a real life date stamp keyed to BGG time so that you can always look up the time things are due, however.

If you're going to be unavailable to do brief internet things for more than that time, just let me know in mod chat! If lots of people are, our fake 24 hours will get longer.

The only full out of character chat you have is mod chat.

Note: You are welcome to have Cassy post your orders to mod chat as well as Daily Input, but any orders only posted to mod chat won't actually affect the game. Mod chat is just for talking to me. =)

Re: The Essence of the Thing: Out of Character/Signup Thread
More notes!

I won't speed up the game order cycle just because everyone got their stuff in early unless the official time starts very much lagging behind the purported time. This is so no one has to worry about their answer one day shortening their time to check in the next day.

There's nothing happening in Cassy that you're not allowed to talk about here (unless it is noted there you're not to speak of it). For as long as the games themselves are played straight up, don't do anything to ruin them for your fellow players. So discussing the word you're cluing in Just One wouldn't be cool, but talking about who you were cluing to would be okay. Feel free to ask in mod chat if you're unclear on the line here.

This is just a note that I got interrupted in mid-process. I will resync time with those who already got their stuff once I'm back and then done. =)

Disregard the resync, we'll be on time for my having put the time comfortably in the future a bit.

With Trigun being this lock consensus good read for so many people, I find it really bizarre that she's alive. There's a threshold where if she's still alive she should probably be murdalated.

Re: The Essence of the Thing: Out of Character/Signup Thread
It was a mistake and he realized after he posted, but since several people had already giggled in their mod chats at a correct assumption of what had happened, I don't think there was any risk of the clue being taken seriously. So I decided to keep his post rather than have partially seen stuff. =)
