    Default Infinite OOC

    Hey all,

    This is an open thread for y'all to ask questions and talk amongst yourselves. Please don't share IC knowledge and as always be respectful. Also, I'll be keeping a list of all players and their character sheets here so I can have easy access to them. Welcome to the infinite campaign!

    Player List:

    {table=head]Player|Character|Activity
    Stanleyindraven|Melvin Groden|Disappeared into the night-o-sphere
    Bladesmith|Hajime Gordon|Probably eaten by the Allosaurus
    EdroGrimshell|Crypt Walker|Loves his mother
    Anecronwashere|Gary Jesmond|Empathy is hard
    Crazydude369|Adam Wentworth|God-like in potential
    The_Admiral|John Adams|Not the protagonist

    Summary of Events:

    Spoiler
    Show
    Bluesky City, once fair and prosperous, has of recent years been wracked with crime and violence. Gangs and a mysterious criminal syndicate have arisen within the city and threaten the safety of the inhabitants.

    But that's only the beginning. Things are going to become much, much worse.

    A scattered collection of individuals across the city, seemingly random in their natures, have been empowered with abilities from mysterious sources, warning each of them of an impending war that will be the doom of all life on Earth.

    Now, they must master their powers and learn where they stand in the face of the coming apocalypse.

    So are we just gonna make this the 'real' OOC thread? Like can we stop checking the original thread if we've already been accepted? I just think it'd be simpler that way.

    Cool, glad I saw this. Guess I'm getting shadow powers, was hoping for something more physical in nature, ritualist being for the less physical stuff.

    Actually, I'm not sure it's a basilisk. It seems it saved you rather than killed you, because the way it's described, you were going out of it before you saw it.

    Yellow Eyes, Snake telepath voice.
    Basilisks have yellow eyes, and are large enough.

    Remember that it doesnt have to be Evil because it's a Snake. I reckon it IS benevolent, and probably my power-inducer like you got the Shadow-Being trapped inside the book.

    Guys, ground rules are as follows, and I'll be codifying them fully later:

    1. Please don't share IC knowledge, as I have pointed out.

    2. If I post your information in a spoiler box, I need you to do the same in return.

    3. Metagaming will be met with expulsion from the campaign.

    I understand that it's annoying to have all of these rules, but this is an experiment as much as a campaign, and they were designed to test assumptions I have about players and to also make things more enjoyable down the line. So please remember to keep these rules in the future.

    Nope. No time has actually passed, beyond which the less people running around "tonight" the easier it is for me to keep track of the flow of time. Suffice to say, we move as fast as our slowest player, and right now he has an important time sensitive event happening.

    Hey guys,

    As I get time, I'll work on mapping out Bluesky city so you can get a better feel for where you're at.

    I'll let y'all know when it's ready, and if you want it I'll email it as a PDF.

    Am I making Gary too good at this? I mean, he focuses almost all his energies on simply observing and sensing why people are doing what.

    He's a little too good, I would say, but I see no real problems with his characterization. As a note for the future though, please try to come up with these details beforehand so I can work them in instead of working around them.

    Ok sorry.

    Though the Older bro, and Neil where backstory-excluding.
    I was planning on Gary's lack of a real Male Rolemodel to be a whole thing, what with his RL dad being a runaway and his stepdad dying.


    Things Gary has:

    Spoiler
    Show
    -4 tickets to Band playing Friday

    -Extensive knowledge of Campus Relationships/Social Network

    -A few Thousand from getting an authentic signature from a player right before he was signed then selling it

    -2 Sisters he Adores and basically spoils rotten (though he does try and stop them going down the wrong path, through both straight out telling off and more subtle manipulations). Basically he is trying to be both Cool Older Bro and Dad to them

    -Mum he respects and Neil, her boyfriend who he doesn't like

    -two friends: Wendy and Theo. Mock-flirts with Wendy and is best-mates with Theo. is trying to set them up 9though it will likely not work due to Theo's impassivity)
    (Wendy as a poss Love interest?)

    -A full Mindscape giving him Eidetic Memory

    A fully-upgraded home-built CPU made from Used parts and slowly upgraded over the Years till it has no original parts left

    -Extensive Puzzle, Linguistic and Code books, in both PDF and Hardcopy form

    I was referring more towards the tickets and the autographed football, the backstory conflicts were my confusion. I keep mixing up different sheets that are open in my tabs.

    Anyhow, thanks for the list.

    Jullian, I recently got an idea, as in just before I started making this post. I was thinking of having Crypt's summon actually being kept inside his mind until summoned. That could be an interesting way to develop the power, actually...

    That was pretty much the idea, actually. It can also exist within his own shadow when called.

    This sounds exactly like the summon I had thought of, only with insubstantial (is that a permanent power BTW?).

    Sorta looks like an eyeless, blackskinned humanoid with an everpresent grin of sharp teeth. And I mean everpresent, it never changes. Clicks his teeth when annoyed, drums his fingers if impatient, that sort of thing since he has, literally, one facial expression.

    When called, he rises from a shadow, arms crossed over his chest and head bowed, then, summons his scythe from shadows and goes on the offensive.

    I call him Velik. Favorite familiar I have ever created.

    Insubstantial is permanent and innate. For now though, he is generally without a personality. In the future, he may deign to speak to his master, if he is impressed.

    Hey guys,

    I've given it some thought, and I'm rescinding rule 1 with a few provisions:

    While you can discuss theories and whatnot, I still implore you to stick to your own spoilers and private information on the IC thread. While you can relate experiences and speculate on their meaning here, please don't copy and paste stuff over.

    I prefer Julian, please. And in the words of Qui-Gon Jinn, "There's always a bigger fish." You were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Out of curiosity, where in Malaysia do you live?

    Well, now you've definitely got questions. The lovely lady and her pet were simply in the neighborhood.
