Neo-what? [May. 27th, 2007|04:43 pm]
Paleo
pfmoi

I may have been the only one to notice, thus far, but I'm sure once everyone else notices, they'll be confused, too.  Or relieved, depending on if they liked the name Paleo or not.  So, apparently we have been renamed Neostalgia.  I thought we were Paleo, but I'm not gonna start something over the name, cause I don't care that much.  I just kinda wish someone had SAID something about the new name!  ;-;  I feel so used....Anyway, now I'm saying something.  *Waves a big, anime-style flag*  We are no longer Paleo, we are now Neostalgia.  Anybody who's got a problem with it can talk to the admins!

RPG IS OPEN! [May. 19th, 2007|01:58 am]
Paleo

Alright, guys, we're live!

The startup event is posted, located in the 'Media' section under "UNN Breaking News". This media release should give you an idea as to what is going on. Concurrently, we also have a thread at Brussels for the Preventers (for those of you involved there, namely Une and Wufei that I'm aware of.)

I'm also going to post a 'live' thread at the location in Brussels that our event is centered around. Details are in the media post, of course. A quick notice, you will not be able to enter that location without the permission of the 'authorities', which are NPCs under Six's and my control. When the time is right, people will be let in. I'm not doing this to be a manipulator, I just don't want everyone diving at the location simultaneously without first getting a bearing for their own character's current location at that time, which is March 8th, AC 199, 3:15 PM.

If you had planned that your character is NOT in Brussels, don't think I'm expecting you to be there if it didn't fit in with your initial plans. If your character IS there and would like to be involved in everything, the best place to go knocking would be Preventers. There is very little chance that the local authorities are going to let an unknown vigilante into the location.

If you don't WANT to be actively involved in the resolution of this event, don't feel obligated to. It'll be taken care of one way or another. IF YOU ARE NOT PARTICIPATING, please give us a post as to your character's activities AT THAT TIME. If they're on the Moon, give us a post as to what they're doing there. Introduce us to them! Let us know what they're up to! If your character has not been living in a cave since EW, chances are they're near a television or O-Web connected location. This event at Brussels is a major media release, which means most of humanity will know about it. Chances are your character will SEE that broadcast and have internal thoughts on it. Let us know about 'em! Detail makes perfect! If they didn't see it, let us know anyway! Activity is good.

Similarly, if your character is NOT in Brussels at the startup time (their initial location is completely up to you), and would LIKE to be involved in the resolution of the event there, you may feel absolutely free to have them travel there to attempt to lend a hand. This event does NOT have a preset expiration date, and depending on where you're located (you're basically screwed only if you're on Mars), you SHOULD be able to get to Brussels before it ends. Not only do I love this option, I highly reccomend it. The more people involved in the startup event, the better. Plus we have more character interaction and re-acquaintance, which is even better. But if you don't want to, YOU ARE NOT OBLIGATED TO. These are all guidelines. Whew ;p

As it is 2:14 AM on Saturday morning (EARLY), I'm not going to put up Heero or Dorothy's whereabouts posts until at least Sunday night. I have to work both days this weekend and technically need to be up in about 4 hours to go see Shrek 3 and THEN hop off to work. So I'll be getting them up on Sunday Night (LATE) or Monday (EARLY EARLY MORNING or MID-AFTERNOON) For those of you who had post-interests involving Heero or Doro, you'll just have to wait until then ;p

Having said that, I hope everyone has a good time and enjoys what we're doing. Me, Six, and Gleep have worked really hard to get everything up and ready for everyone, so please take advantage of it and get posting ;p

And now I'm off to zonk out for some MUCH needed rest. Happy Hunting, guys!

Some more material is up, including religions, rules and travel times. We still lack a few character bios, and silver needs to get up the stuff about geography, but other than that, we're good to go! If anyone needs anything more to get started, or feel that something is missing in the Setting section, or want another ingame location on the forum, now's the time to poke me, because odds are that the next time I come across silver on icq we'll declare the RPG officially started!

Whoohoo! RP-a-licious! [May. 8th, 2007|01:19 am]

So I've posted up some more background info for the RP. Everything I've done can be found in the 'Database-Plot setting' topic. There's a bunch in there that I thought was important and beneficial. There's also a post under 'Media'.

Hopefully every is just about ready to begin, because Six and and I are creating our startup event to get things going. Should be up this week, if all goes well.

Don't forget, everyone!

You need to register your character at the forum before you can post.

And I hate to be a bitch about this, I REALLY don't want to be neurotic, but if everyone would please register their character in this style? -Heero Yuy- That's first and last name, both words capitalized. PLEASE do it this way, I swear nothing is going to harm me more than someone registering with uncapitalized letters. I know it sounds totally insane but I'm working very hard to make everything look streamlined, organized, and uniform, and I'm hoping you guys will respect that. SO yes, I KNOW I'm being a total stubborn bitch on this, but please please please PLEASE use the proper template for your registration.

Oh, and one more thing. If anybody has background information they want posted to the database that is more or less in the control of their character, let me know/get with me. Particularly coming to mind for this are WEI for Rea, and any pertinent political information/organizations/etc involving Relena from moonbyrd. This applies to events/locations/organizations/devices/weapons/misc./etc. This is also not LIMITED to these two, if ANYONE has any database info that needs to go up in connection to your character, let me know! It seriously makes me happy to make these post-files, so please do share. If the information is sheer character bio material, please put that in their bio. I really really would love everyone to post one (a character bio), just so we can having a running source for information on every character. Plus it's just awesome to be setup that way >>;

If you're not good/not sure how to make one? Come to me, I can help. And while I'm not quite as anal about how character bios are done as registration and database posts, I would at least like the topic line to contain Bio: -Character Name- . Again, for the sake of uniformity and prettiness and organization and such.

Okay, so now that I've taken my popularity down about twenty points and declared to the world just what kind of mental neuroses I have, have fun, everyone!

Character Bios Up! [May. 2nd, 2007|09:37 pm]
Paleo
silverangelduo
Well, well. I've finally completed the first two entries in the 'Database' section. They're the character bios for Heero and Dorothy. Hopefully everyone will find the motivation to fill out and post their own. And if you want to use the style I did as a template, even better.

*has this strange compulsion to make everything look like a computer database file*

It's not horribly important, but I think it would just be so awesome. Regarding the rest of the database, I'm going to do my best to post pertinent support information when I can. Also, I plan to gather and post more support data as the RPG progresses, such as events or locations or plot devices. Just figure things'll be easiest once we have an available resource for people to catch up on and make sense of things.

So yeah! Feel free to post Character Bios in the 'Database' section under 'Characters'. *is so giddy we're almost ready to begin! Whoo!*

Idea for a New (And I think better >>; ) Name. [May. 2nd, 2007|09:23 pm]
Paleo
silverangelduo
So, I was talking to OWS and PF and we had this fun little conversation about the name of the RPG. I dunno about you all, but I absolutely HATE (no offense to those of you that like it =/ ) the name Paleo. Once again, it just summons up ideas of little chibi GW-charas running about in 1820s style English explorer khaki with tiny magnifying glasses escaping from mummies.

... Well, yeah, so. While that doesn't sound CUTE as hell, it just doesn't seem appropriate for a dramatic epic RPG.

My idea, as it were, is something a little along the lines of Latin, something enjoyed by both myself and OWS. Wondering what it is? Welllllll!~

I'll tell you ^_^

My idea is :

Ars Arcanum. Literally translated it means 'Art of sacred secret.'

ars : strategem/ science, art, skill/ craft.
ars : (artis) skill method, technique, conduct, character.
arcanum : sacred secret.

I like it (well I love Latin, it just sounds so pretty! ^_^ )because of the mysterious/esoteric/ancientish feel. The goal of the RPG is that things will not be as they seem and not everyone will have all the pertinent information. Kind of like a secret ^_^ A SACRED secret ;p

In any case, let me know what you guys think. I'm not going to go nuts if the name doesn't change, but I would REALLY REALLY REALLY love to see something better >>;

Rules? [May. 2nd, 2007|01:14 am]

The question mark isn't about whether or not we're goingg to have them, but what they're going to be. :) This is the topic where you come with suggestions for general rules for the RPG; I will then write a draft and show it to you. Comments on things like what activity level we should demand? Any procedure to follow if a player is displeased with something? (to avoid a general rebellion)

The setting: Language [May. 2nd, 2007|01:03 am]
Paleo

[mood |annoyedannoyed]

It appears in the anime that all the characters speak the same language all the time, which suggests one world language. Either than everyone learn in school, or that everyone speak, other languages having become more or less obsolete, spoken only by minority groups. I for one am sick of the way roleplayers and fanfic writers simply avoid this topic because it's a bother - let's just agree on one or the other and be done with it.

Also, just for reference: This world language, is it a derivate of one of the existing languages today, or a mixture of several languages?

Since a lot of the action appears to be focused on Europe in the GW setting, I'd suggest a derivative of either English of French.

This is to save us all the headache of wondering whether or not it's appropriate to have our characters cursing in "their own" language, never being sure that in this future it even still is in use.

The setting: Geography [Apr. 29th, 2007|11:34 pm]
Paleo

[mood |contemplativecontemplative]

Before I can make the final draft of the forum, we have to settle this matter, which is how does world look in the After Colony timeline, in regards to countries and cities? Even though we have this world nation thing going on, there would still have to be countries in the way there's states today in the US. And for us to be able to even name the subcategories, we need to know what those are called - at least the main ones, where the characters are going.

Unfortunately, we know very little from the anime about this. There's Sank Kingdom, which appears to be located in south-eastern Europe, by the Black Sea. And Relena seems to have lived somewhere on the Eastern Asian shore, at the beginning of the anime. Maybe Shanghai? Luxenburg I think was mentioned in relation to Treize's resistance movement, but what country is it situated in? What of the American continents?

We have a forum! [Apr. 27th, 2007|02:11 am]

And here it is:
http://www.bimace.com/gwrpg/index.php

I've has three templates installed, you can choose whichever one you like best of them, for when you're logged in. I'm not saying the way the categories are now is final or anything, this is just a suggestion for a layout. trowacko requested that we have as few categories as possible and I like structure, so this is a sort of compromise.

Sorry for not answering to any of the other topics, I've been working daytime this week and daytime at the markey survey job is killing me (I seriously don't get how those who do that five days a week and have done so for a couple of years can stand it). I get so tired and antisocial when I get home that I don't want to do anything. But I have a four day weekend coming up, so I should be able to catch up soonish.
