View Full Version : All Purpose OOC Thread

03-26-2004, 12:14 AM
I think this thread will be useful to coordinate out of character discussions so we don't clutter the threads too much. I mean, if you're posting something relevant to the plot out of character, by all means, do it in the thread, but for everything else, I think this thread will do nicely.

With that, I'm going to dissolve the Nal Hutta OOC thread as it has outlived its usefulness. I recommend the dissolving of Escape from Nal Hutta and Great Job RPers threads as they are no longer useful to the community.

03-29-2004, 04:54 PM
ok you're right, i'll stop cluttering and post here. But i wasn't sure if you'd read it then, so... Any way, if my guy is to powerful, just tell me and i'll change it while i haven't joined yet.

03-30-2004, 11:47 PM
Your character sketch doesn't make the character too powerful, it's how you use it. Read Nal Hutta if you wonder what I mean. My character sketch was powerful, and so was the character. But now read Leea & Lingo. It's the same character, but played more carefully.

If you don't let your character act overpowered, it won't be. And that means that I won't have to kill it! :D

03-31-2004, 11:14 AM
well, if you give him to repeating blasters for arms, a jetpack and the strongest armor ever made, i think he's too powerful no matter how you handle it. But anyway, i'll play accordingly to my character.
and please, katarn and reclaimer, i hope you read this, check yourspelling please. look at the difference between Partners in crime and the republic crisis. Bad grammar takes away part of the magic.

03-31-2004, 05:47 PM
i like where your story is going. you two (lingo and f-bomb )are the best RPers. i hope i can keep up the high level...

And F-bomb, do you come here sometimes? and will you try to keep posting in 'dark crusade' as well? Thank you.

04-02-2004, 07:05 PM
Am i the only one posting here? looks like it. You guys coul've at least told me that you weren't interested in dark crusade anymore. How typical.

. Please participate. Stories die if no one does anything. Don't post once, then leave. Likewise, it's not terribly courteous to just vanish in the middle of a story for no reason. Stories die without the storytellers. That's from the role-playing guidelines on JKII.net RPG forum, but it also counts here. It's not nice of you guys!

04-03-2004, 06:53 AM

Thank you very much :)
I've been reading chapter books since I was 9 years old (I read The Client and The Lost World straight through in one day each when I was 13). I'm a book-loving geek, so good grammar and writing mechanics come kinda natural.

04-03-2004, 08:28 AM
yeah, i'll never be as good as you are cuz english is my second language.

And if you like reading, will you please check out my Fan Fiction and vote for it? Thank you.

04-03-2004, 11:43 PM
Don't give me this "so typical" crap. I've only got so much time a day to post, and I post by priority. I haven't had time for Dark Crusade lately, and I haven't posted there. Get it?

04-04-2004, 01:11 PM
Okay, i get it. I was just quoting C-3PO. But anyway, jokemaster seems to have forgotten about it, unless he has the same problem as you do. Anyway, a new guy joined Dark crusade so i don't have anything to complain about anymore. And now Jokemaster returned. Weee!

04-11-2004, 11:33 PM
Given that Partners in Crime is taking a long time to get started to the point that other people could jump on (not that that is a bad thing, I'm loving the experience personally), I was wondering if the community might want another thread started by Lingo and I in the same fashion, but more open for others and maybe a little faster paced. If the other coherent posters around here like Doomgiver, Jokemaster, and T10 or others who come along would like another strong RPG thread, let me know and I'll start a story.

04-12-2004, 08:46 AM
yeah, that'd be cool. All RPG's i joined are a bit unpopulair, so i could use a new game. So yeah, i'd like it. When do we start?

04-12-2004, 06:34 PM
Erm, well, erm...do we want a combat one or a let's figure something out one?

04-12-2004, 11:44 PM
Not necessarily a combat one, that's not what I meant. Something that people can jump onto from the beginning is what I was thinking of. So Doomgiver is in, I'm in. T10? VanLingo? Others?

04-13-2004, 12:10 AM
oh i'm in. my guys in the roll call if ya wanna see him

04-13-2004, 12:12 AM
Well there's one more...
You might not want to use the same character for every story though. It works out with some, but others are set ages apart or simultaneously. You might want to have a few in mind that you can use in various games.

I myself have got a spectacular one ready for the next good story that comes along.

04-13-2004, 12:16 AM
okay cool but someone should come up with a spectatular story instead of my lame battle for hoth.(i needed something to do okay!:p )

04-13-2004, 12:20 AM
That's what I'm lining people up for...
Well, I hope it will be spectacular at least...

04-13-2004, 12:22 AM
lol but who would start it?

04-13-2004, 12:24 AM
Sorry to sound condescending...

ME! Duh... Who'd you think if I was going to all this trouble? lol

04-13-2004, 12:25 AM
lol oh oops sorry i guess i'm just not as fast as the other people around here...:p

04-13-2004, 12:27 AM
'S okay. And if you want to delete a post, edit it, and check the little box at the top where it talks about deleting things. To edit a post, click the little box at the bottom right of the post that says edit.

04-13-2004, 12:31 AM
Ah so that's how you do it... I'm guessing you saw the post in the roleplaying guidelines...


04-13-2004, 12:33 AM
Yeah, I did. Thought you might like to know how to delete it for future reference.

04-13-2004, 12:34 AM
lol yep i might neways when are u gonna start the new story?

04-13-2004, 12:36 AM
Tomorrow or Wednesday probably.

I'm waiting to see if VanLingo or anyone else is interested. I'll get around to it in a day or so I think.

04-13-2004, 12:38 AM
okay well i gotta go now watch monster garage. so i'll end this little instant messanger type dissussion (srry i can't spell) but hope u start it soon!

04-13-2004, 12:56 PM
I'm definately in. Can't wait for this. G.I. Jow will find his calling. Laser eyes!

04-13-2004, 02:15 PM
Great, four people already. I think that would be enough.

04-15-2004, 11:59 PM
So F-Bomb I guess we should start now. Maybe we should wait for Van Lingo b/c he can make or break it.

04-16-2004, 12:08 AM
I was holding out for him, hoping he would post here. I'm thinking I'll wait another day or so, see if Lingo has an opinion.

Hear that, Lingo? Post here and let us know if you'd be interested in another RPG. If you're not going to do it, I'll set up a little differently.

04-16-2004, 08:34 AM
Wow, I am actually in demand!

Yeah, I'll go along. I'll use Orn Carsin, an Alderaanian nerfherder.
Star Wars meets the Old West!

Seriously, though -- you start it, I'm there.

-- Lingo

04-16-2004, 01:24 PM
Good, I'll start it tonight.

04-17-2004, 01:19 AM
Good becuase I can't wait for a good one.

04-17-2004, 05:24 PM
By the way, How long is it going to take before Van lingo and Jivva are gonna get to their destination? I wanted to jump in there but it's taking longer than i thought...
(Of course i am talking about Partners in crime)

04-18-2004, 12:55 AM
I just found a spot. I've been looking for a spot for a looooong time and finally found one as a cloud city security gaurd. They should get to the imp fleet soon and you should be able to join in there.

04-18-2004, 03:49 AM
Hey, Doomgiver --

First of all, what kind of character are you going to use?

It might be a good idea to jump in as our Nar Shaddaa contact. Your first post could be a hypercomm message to Lingo.

Just an idea...

04-18-2004, 01:15 PM
Well, i would jump in as his bodyguard, Shade. It's in the Roll call thread, just before slapshot i think. But I see you're getting there, so maybe it's better if i wait.

04-18-2004, 04:04 PM
Or... you could me on my side to stop these two scoundrals.:p

and F-Bomb are you gonna start that new RPG soon?

04-19-2004, 12:18 AM
Yeah, sorry about that. Soon as I'm done posting here, I'm going to set up it's character thread and then the story thread. Expect to soil yourselves when you see my character's profession. It's rather humorous to say the least.

04-22-2004, 03:20 PM
So... F-bomb, there are three characters, let's start, shall we?

04-22-2004, 10:53 PM
Don't worry doomgiver he's gonna start it around 8 or 9 est when he gets on... and if i'm right say so f-bomb! And LF was down for everyone for a while right?

04-23-2004, 01:34 AM
It was down for you and I at least. Yeah, I'm going to post in BFH and then I'll be getting the new one started.

I point you all in the directions of the guidelines and give you Partners in Crime as an example of what to do. I give you anything by Luke Katarn as an example of what not to do.

Let's make it a good one!

lol haha

04-23-2004, 02:09 AM
So T10, are you going to revive Marta Richmar for PiC?

04-24-2004, 08:33 AM
Alright, you might wonder why i deleted my last post in The Killer Outside. Well, it just felt really lame and people pointed out that i didn't have to post each time, so i've deleted it to see how Haadar is gonna get outta this one himself.

04-25-2004, 02:32 PM
I have a question for a mod or admin. Do the RPGs in here have to be star wars? Could we make a Lord of the Rings one?

04-25-2004, 04:20 PM
I don't know... Why don't we just do it and see if it gets locked.

By the way, are there vampires with lord of the rings?

04-25-2004, 06:48 PM
Nah! Richmar's staying out of this one. He's a pilot mercenary, not a fist fighter. He'll come back in some other RPG. Maybe with a new ship. Maybe not. Maybe with a dress. You never know.

04-25-2004, 07:44 PM
No doomgiver, but there are ringwraiths, The Nine, Servants of Sauron, Corrupted men. Call them what you want but they dress in black robes and wear black horses. And they have the black breath whitch lets them do bad things (I forget) And if we are gonna start a LOTR rpg, then I should give u a list of races and stuff. If anyone has anything else to add, feel free to add it.


Men- Humans. Greedy, Will do anything for power. Has Kings (most of the time) or a steward.(See Return of the King movie and you will get most of this better. In fact, see the whole trilogy. But there is no sub for the books!)
EXAMPLE- ARAGORN, or STRIDER ( they are both the same person.)

Elves- My favorite. Immortal, but can be killed in battle. Can see and hear very well. Can walk lightly (I.E. not fall into snow.)EXAMPLE-LEGOLAS

Dwarves- Short guys with beards. They are good in close combat. And are miners.

Hobbits- Also called halflings. Like ale. Most live in the Shire or in Bree and the surrounding cities.

Some good, Some bad

Wizards- Verry powerful. Can use magic.
BAD- Saruman

Dark Forces(the bad guys)

Ringwraiths- Servants of Sauron. Are drawn to the ring. Cannot see as we see, but see the shadow world.have black breath.
EXAMPLE- Err.... no names given here. But they were men.

Orcs- Evil short guys that like to kill people. Not very smart.
EXAMPLE-If we do one, these guys are the grunts of Sauron that fight against the Free People of Middle-Earth

Uruk-Hai (sp?)- Cross-breed bewteen men and orcs. Stronger than your averge orc.
EXAMPLE-10,000 of these guys marched on Helm's Deep.

Easterlings- Men with cool armor from the East.
EXAMPLES- were at the black gate in the movie.

Southerners- Men from the South with cool armor.Ride the Oliphaunts.(pretty much big elephants.)
EXAMPLES- Were ambushed by Faramir in The Two Towers

Ummm that's all I can think of but if anyone has more feel free to add.

04-25-2004, 08:01 PM
Yeah, i know what nazgul are, i've seen the movies. But the books go further, so there was a chance there were vamps.
And nazguls don't 'wear' black horses :)

Anyway, when do we start?

04-25-2004, 08:33 PM
Woops, i think i did something stupid by starting that bar fight.

hey guys, don't forget the RPG'S!

04-25-2004, 11:03 PM
Lol no vamps but the book does go alot further. Like at the end the shire gets taken over by people and the hobbits take it back. It is my favorite part.

Also if you need an elf name you can go to here (www.chriswetherell.com/elf/)
Also if you need a hobbit name you can go tohere (www.chriswetherell.com/hobbit)
here (http://www.barrowdowns.com/middleearthname.asp) is one for dwarf orc elf and hobbit. (but if you are doing elf or hobbit Please do the top two they are much better IMO)
And I think you should be able to come up with a human name.

I guess I'll start character creation. Again I will give you PiC as an example of what to do.

04-27-2004, 08:37 PM
Hey, slapshot, I'm going to lay off of posting a reply in PiC until Lingo gets a chance, so let's all just sit tight.

Also, to all this concerns:

I'd like to make a formal request that all those who visit this board disregard the posts made and threads started by LukeKatarn. I believe that he posts outside of the rules and guidelines of this forum to a disruptive point, fails to obey rules stated inside threads themselves, and generally poses a threat to the intelligence quotient of anyone on this board. I believe that his posts should be declared null and void, that is, the other members of this forum should not read them, respond to them, or acknowledge them in any way, shape, or form. In effect, his posts should be treated as if never posted at all. I believe that this is for the good of the forum, and ask it in the name of a coherent board.

Thank you, F-Bomb.

04-27-2004, 08:53 PM
I hate to double-post, but with that last one this thread...

...burst onto the Hot Threads List! I hope it stays there for a while.

04-28-2004, 05:30 AM
and generally poses a threat to the intelligence quotient of anyone on this board.


Say, if nobody posts in the RPG threads anymore because of the bar fight, i'll delete it, so be warned!

04-29-2004, 06:25 AM
Ooh, that's harsh, F!

But true. Just remember, though -- English is his second language, so he kinda has an excuse.

BTW, count me out of the LOTR RPG. It's hard enough keeping up with two, and I'm not very good at LOTR lore (even though I love the movies and games!).

04-29-2004, 08:26 AM
WEll, that first excuse is kinda sucky, i'm keeping up with dozens of RPG's. but yeah, if you don't know much about it you shouldn't really join in. But true. Just remember, though -- English is his second language, so he kinda has an excuse.

English is also my second language. (but i have trained on it alot.)

04-29-2004, 08:43 PM
Yeah, I'm staying out of LOTR, too. Not a huge fan.

Back on Katarn, if English is his second language, that's one thing. That excuses poor spelling and grammar. It doesn't excuse ass-inine posting however. Which is my chief problem with him, mind you.

04-29-2004, 09:39 PM
Okay... Well LOTR died in like a day. Doomgiver you wanna do just us to? Or should we just forget about it.

04-30-2004, 03:58 AM
Well, it could be fun to play with just the too of us.... but it could also be really boring... i dunno...

05-03-2004, 01:07 PM
Yeah...I'm not a great fan of the LoTR either. Not really my type of thing. Anyway, that Slaven RPG'd getting really good. Let's keep it up.

05-06-2004, 03:03 AM
I have two quick announcements:

#1. I am not missing from our RPs. I'm just waiting for others to post. Post, blast you!

#2. I will not be able to log in until Saturday due to out-of-town business. Make me a good storyline to expound upon!

Just so you know.

-- Lingo

05-22-2004, 01:14 PM
Hey, everyone --

My new fanfic is posted on the Hire on Demand site. You can see Parts I and II in .htm or .doc formats here: http://republic.fragism.com/hireondemand/tales.htm
Part III will be posted very soon.

-- Lingo

05-22-2004, 02:01 PM
Alright, the key to 'gettin'back in business' is finding Slapshot 16. If he posts in either 'partners in crime' or 'the slayer of sleheyron' , the story will continue! So if anyone sees him, or knows another way to contact him, tell him to get his @$$ back over here!

05-27-2004, 08:31 PM
Ok, Lingo and I each got in a crack in PiC.

Here's my solution, and I hate to even suggest it but...

I think we might need to kill him off. If he comes back, he can create a new character, and if not, no harm done.

I know, I know... I would hate it if that happened to me, but I'm thinking it might be necessary.

05-28-2004, 12:23 AM
No, not even GMs can kill characters off. It's the taboo of RPing.

But...since we're making our way to Nar Shaddaa's surface, we can just drop him off. Nar Shaddaa is a perfect place to for him pick back up if he has to.

05-30-2004, 08:38 PM
That'll work. Planning on posting soon?

05-31-2004, 06:43 AM
Alright, now if you just put the ship down on Nar shaddaa, my men will be waiting fo you.
