    Well Morbis i have some issue with that due to my own way of reading the different versions.

    Bold is basically louder/brash speech
    Normal is just your typical speech
    Italics for whispers and/or non-speech communication, since making the letters smaller is just outright annoying.

    Since everyone might have their own ways of seeing the formating i think we are better off just making it standard across the board.

    That's fine, it's just the convention I am most used to, though I do recommend that we choose something for thought speech since we have two vitalists with a collective capability who may or may not get telepathy with the collective.

    Hurrah, OOC is up!

    For telepathy you could just write like this:

    telepathy: "Hello everyone, this is me using telepathy."

    All telepathy have to be written in 0# or C# Syntax whichever is the most pain in the arse at the time.

    My preference is "" for speech and {} for telepathy.

    "I am speaking aloud!"

    {I am yelling at you with my thoughts!}

    I'll probably use purple for Reyla's speech and telepathy. I suppose I can substitute {} brackets for "" quotation marks when using telepathy, if that's the plan.

    And IC is out: http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showt...6#post21599356

    Sorry that the introduction of you as a party was a bit "tossed together", but i feel this way you could have a moment where you met not too long ago. I give details as we get down the line, for now you have waited too long for a IC to get started.

    Addendum: Extra points if you get the reference of the entire first paragraph.

    She might have been activated in the crash, and we thus don't yet know she comes with the vessel.

    Well Morbis there was the bit where i tried to hint in the last part where it was kinda up to you guys on how that could happen, but i hit the iron curtain and ****ed up that last part a bit :P

    Though my intention is that the group would be able together from the start, and that my wording would hint that you folks that are special have already been found, but under what circumstances would be a collective effort ^^;;...

    So shame on me?

    I was under the impression that we were all together at the beginning but I guess that wasn't clear for every one else. And every body's posts have made it pretty confusing.

    Is there a standard system of dates. If so, what date is it?

    When it comes to dates it kind of depends on the culture you are from.

    For the humans its a count from their acension to space: which is about "932A" Months are similar to regular earth times.

    Relya however remember a different date method, though she is not aware how long time it have gone since then since its mostly unknown these days, if anything the last date she would remember would be 32011-30.

    Standard star-trading date would be 45th-13th 9714 or 45-13-9714. A "Day" would be about 24h earth time, but a "week" is 10 days and a "month" is 50 days. A year is as much as 20 months. The dating is unknown how it originated for real, but some sources claim its counted from the first tradepact done between spheres, though nobody remembers between who.

    Would anyone know how to convert said dates?

    The core races (Humans, Elves, Dwarves, Halflings and the half-something) races basically follow current earth logic, and then you can just use the logic described above.

    So 1 Star-trade year would be 2,73 Acension years.
    ( A thousand days in a trade year, so obviously someone thought the system would suit better than 300-odd days )

    Other than the "natives" of this system, convertions are known to most races that are interested in human history. As for the dates Relya is familiar with, nobody knows the convertion rates... and noone even know what logic its even based on... except perhaps Relya herself. (You can decide yourself Ash on how that would work. Though she wouldnt have a good reference to even do a convertion from with your current knowledge.)

    Can someone plain text explain the situation and what we need to do next? I am a little confused and I think my IC posts have confused the situation more.

    Currently you are stranded apon the ship that is maybe the most likely to leave orbit on the moon. One would assume you folks havent been lazy and found a ship that was in better shape than yours and what remains of it would be to find a proper helm somewhere nearby.

    So we are switching ships? That's going to be intereting since SARA' drawback is going to change. I thought we were going to fix the current ship lol

    I think it would be easier to repair our ship than to switch to a new one, both for plot reasons and because we probably know how our ship funcitons better than we would know how another ship would function.

    Default Re: Spelljammer [OOC] "Spacejammin' electric boongaloo"

    *sigh* Alright i am going to do a massive plot patch to fix some... misconceptions, and confusions.

    My plan kinda failed as i just set the pieces and see if you guys could work the "how we met, and how we started to work together" part as kind of a retro-narrative between you guys so that you could have the background you wanted and yet be everyone from session 1... either i failed to explain that, or it just doesnt work without be basically sho-horning everyone into the same narrative without any consideration for your assumed backstory what so ever. (Yeah i am slightly bitter by this failure as it means i failed already in the introduction)

    So let me "patch" the current situation and its assumed "canon" as for now, and the ideas i have for some of your characters to work in the current history of the setting and so forth.

    The beginning was the six that isnt Relya and Sara crashed onto the scrap moon and totalled their ship. Damage to the original ship was massive so after some scouting around you guys found a ship which contained the android Sara, which is not too happy about the idea... though she rather see the ship back in working condition with a crew than to be stranded alone for...well... next time a living soul set their foot here.

    For Ashiels character the stasis point to make sense it would have to take a long time to fit with their background race: The Mindflayers... though i wont ruin the actual plot around this other than the other characters might only heard about this race in myth and the actual time taken and where in the timeline and even...what sphere Relya even is from.

    So in the end i failed in establishing this from the very start, and then failed to communicate this in a proper manner and then failed in that i couldnt friggin fix this earlier... hell i have been working on the setup for "Klima 4" a while and some of the setting before i even started to include you guys which shows >_<

    TL;DR: Experiments failed, things got ****ed and confused... trying to fix **** so we even get anywhere.
