SO. We have decided to reopen this, which means that maybe we should think about a time and getting things settled in so that we can start playing. Cause I want to play. Basically it looks like our decisions stand as this:
Characters: We have Alex, Dex, Victoria, Aric, Robin, and Fengxia. This still works pretty decently as far as original setup.
Timeline: We're setting, let's say four months before Serenity, with the intention to play and maybe, someday, play through it.
Game time: Let's aim for two IC days per OOC week, to be established as things feel right. If everyone could take initiative in moving things along and feeling free to post 'new day' posts whenever it feels as though a day's worth of RP has been done, this would help. Perhaps we can make a general rule that every four days a new IC day will start, with the ability to move faster if it feels neccessary? We can talk about skipping weeks or whatever if we ever feel we want to.
Gameplay: LJ, M*, IM, whatever works for you individually at each time. We're open to experimentation. As long as it makes things happen, it's fine. Zai has a space for us on a game that supports miniM*s - bug her if you don't have the info.
Plot: Wipe everything, start over, from the time when NU has been refitted and brought back into service. The backstory still stands unless it needs to be adjusted for any character changes.
Structure: Endeavor to start each 'mission' with a vague outline to be followed either by RP or offcam, with downtime on ship as needed.
Things you (YES YOU) need to do:
- Let us know whether you will be making changes to your character or if they will be staying the same.
- Speak up if you have any objections, additions, or thoughts.
- Start playing!
Things to be done in general:
- Revamp the info to include Operatives and other Serenity bits
- Figure out the actual date we are starting - anyone know a date from Serenity?
- Uh... anything else?

I follow my own orders! I'm planning to keep Alex as she is, unless someone needs some adjustments to fit their own revamped history.
Also, I would love to either play out or write vignettes trapped in the shuttle. Wyn? Will? You guys up for some LJ-sceneing or something, maybe?
Um. What about me? Liane?

You hadn't said you were playing?
I hadn't heard anything about it.

We posted in LJ a week or two ago, asking who was interested.
Must have missed that post. Anyways. I am interested, if, ya know, yadda yadda yadda.
I must have missed the part where you played the first time around. I mean, seriously. This is not a half-ass game play place. We can't have a players who don't play, or plot, or post, or check LJ and things are pretty qustionable as far as starting this up again anyway as is.
Ask Robin about the play we did. I have logs with Alex and Victoria and Dex on my computer as well. I played as much as anyone else, but if you don't want me in this game, just say so.
Well, that would require Robin actually being around. Which he's generally not due to one thing or another. Also, I can't read your mind, you posted one log and I saw you RP once. So if my perception is wrong, it's because I didn't have any other evidence that said otherwise.
I checked the eclipseproject community. And I saw your name come up maybe three times as a poster or players in a log. And there's nothing after early April. So hey, that's what I saw.
I don't, particularly.
I don't have the patience for the hand-holding that would be involved, or the drama, and if you have an 'important' character like you did before you'll hold things up.
I, Aric, who am too lazy to log on the other journal, have already tweaked a few things and so am now leaving it alone. I could, maybe, shove something with the word 'Operative' in it if need be, but otherwise, I am sticking with what I got.
You guys need to post these things when I'm not dead-exhausted at the end of the week! I'm in, but have nothing to offer in as far as thoughts just yet. Same history, same everything.
Like I said when the initial idea was floated, I've always been interested, but I honestly can't speak as to my availability and commitment. Being back in school full time's taking a real bite out of my spare energy for gaming, and I already feel like I'm treading water on the games I'm on.
So, barring summer turning up useful things, put me down in the 'no' category. The spirit's willing, the flesh has midterms and finals.
I am v. behind (I blame comps!) but: I'm kind of willing to do whatever with Dex. I like him how he is, but I'm also v. willing to tweak things to have him fill in any holes or whatever. So for now I'll just say I'm keeping him as-is, but if we end up with some important area unfilled, I can add/remove things as need be to fill that.
I think we were discussing making Dex more of an 'agent' and less of a 'techie' character, but that's about it? And considering he was one of the highest ranked and most skilled in the group, that really isn't a stretch.
