OOC: game space Feb. 26th, 2006 @ 04:57 pm
Information on our mini-game space, which is quite nice:

It's located at OGR, which is ogrmux.com:6700. When you log on, just create a character. Check 'news newbie start' and set the things it tells you to. From there, get to the Crossroads room -- I think you just have to hit 'i agree' and it takes you there, but I can't quite remember.

Once you're in the Crossroads, go: N, W, N, EP.

That gets you to the OOC 'waiting room' type area of our little area. The entrance to EP is dark so no one else will wander in. Hop right into the ship from there (the exit back to the OOC room is also dark, for appearance sake, and is 'exit').

The rooms are all there and part way desced. It's quite nice :) I'll need to be online to help you build your personal room, so just bug me and it takes about 30 seconds.

Anyway, that's all you have to do!

OOC: Restarting! Feb. 24th, 2006 @ 06:54 pm
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?

Report to Lagrange: The Thomas Parker Mission

Robin, using the cover as the ship’s captain, and Liane, using the cover as a passenger on the ship, made contact with a man named Joe Marlowe. They told him that the ship was being held in lock down and they were transporting melons. For a cut of the share in the money made from the cargo, Joe set up a meeting with a man named Charley Kieffer who could be paid off to get the ship out of lock down and get the cargo free.

Following the ship being in lock down, mechanical failure was claimed to keep the Nominis Umbra longer in the town Amelia on the planet Warrem. Robin proceeded to contact Joe Marlowe again, claiming the crew was low on credits and offering the services of the ship for jobs. Joe referred Robin to a man named Duncan, who is involved in anti-Alliance activities.

The crew has spent the next two months doing odd jobs for this organization, which has been referred to on a few occasions as the Unallied, which are listed on the next page. During this time, Liane has been on Warrem with the cover of a stranded passenger looking for work in order to get work with the Unallied and potentially have access to any files they might have. Also, the pilot Aric was locked in his quarters for ten days due to disciplinary problems. On and between the missions, Robin has dropped hints about wanting to do more and of his dislike for the Alliance.

Duncan acceded to Robin’s desire to be a bigger part of the organization and Robin was told to seek out one 'Marc Raines' in Hillcrest on Jiangyin. After picking up Liane from Warrem, the Nominis Umbra will travel to Jiangyin and report on the findings.

Hoookay people.

The mission we're currently on involves the suspicion that an important Independant named Thomas Parker who did in the war...is actually not dead and stirring up Alliance resistance on a border planet.

Now, Liane and Robin went out and found..some...underground group? I don't really remember from the log. So...it needs to be decided what was found. Is Parker alive? Is someone using his name to run some sort of criminal ring? Just an annoying rumor, what?

Liane? Robin? Could you two write some sort of...report or short story or something? So we all know what's going on in the mission?

Aric had his physical so...While he's probably still in trouble..(Alex?) he should at least be out of his room. Assuming Xia didn't find anything horrifying. ;)

So...that's that. Go forth!

Ok, so it's been so long since any of us RP (or just posted logs or anything) that my friends page was saddly blank.

I think we've probably lost the oppourtunity to RP out the part of the mission that we discussed already, but maybe the mission continues as we (Robin and Liane) have found more clues and we've jumped spots on the planet to further investigate, getting even closer to this alleged 'Thomas Parker' - and potentially having to kill him.

However, we should probably regroup somehow with what's going on...through short stories or journals or something, eh?

Aric's been confined to his quarters through most of the mission, so..I mostly have to, er, figure out how to un-confine him. ;)

But, uhm, point was we should probably regroup now that RL things have seemed to calm down.
