It's nice to see a fic with refined content and editing once in a while.

I was a little disappointed when I saw that it was a collaborative RP fic, because I quite honestly thought we had an expert writer in our midst. Not that it's bad, but I had developed higher expectations. Bottomline: this is one hell of a fic, and I look forward to more! Welcome to the forums, goddamnit!
Thanks, though I'm tempted to say you get multiple expert writers! When I planned it out, I never intended for it to be free-form like a traditional RP and there are no rounds. Everyone gets a role, but their actions are essentially scripted to fit my plot including the order of the posts, so it's in that very gray area between RP and Fic.

The installments may be a little too big. I managed to read through because I liked the writing and content, but people like Mr_BFA get scared by big blocks of text.
Would this be a bad time to mention that we are aiming for novel length and have got about 65,000 words at this point? It's settled out to a proper three-act structure, and we are girding our loins for the climax/resolution of the story.

Also, you may be interested in Dantooine Theatre Company, our roleplaying forum which could use some more stuff now. It used to be a lot more active before...
Cool, we already have plans for the sequel. We might very well run it over here. Most of us are in other RPs on The Escapist, but this one is Our Story, not just an RP.

Anyways, keep it up you people.
No one has managed to stop us so far! Thanks!
