Not so quickly this time, sorry.

Because of my procrastination, we've missed quite a bit. How do you two feel about a minor time-skip to make things make progress a bit more?

Well time has skipped a little... from noonish when the pizza party was.
To when the space-napped pets have been returned to the park, where it is now 8pm.

I suggest you copy BsM's current strategy: don't worry about closing or opening neighborhoods, just keep well-written and tight screening measures on your incoming players and it should be good.

You interested in Sid returning for a while?

8:30pm now.. the taken and returned pets in the park are now also at 8:30pm that same day. So pets who go to the park, can now run into the confused, memory wiped, taken pets if they wish too.

Glurg... I just got done slogging through (well... skimming) the entire alien arc. That took like a million pages. (Or 20 some)
Aliens and psychic powers. Whoa.

So, uh. Hey. Probably only Rav knows me... as I've been gone for like a year... although, unless I missed something, it's only been approximately 2 and 1/2 days in the actual RP since Pavelle, Mag, Felix disappeared...
So, yeah.
Um.
Maybe sometime I'd like to join this again? Though I haven't yet read the OOC... which I plan on doing.
EDIT: Finished. Reading. OOC. Urg. Mah braaaaain. So much. Dialogue. Mah poor babeh eyes are crossed and bleeding tears of... success? (Is that what you call it?)
If there's room for me here, still...?
I dunno.
And where's Buck?!? I'd have expected Ven to still be occupying the neighborhood.
(though that little question's probably already been answered in the OOC...)

Buck's activity dropped off at least a year ago and he recently resigned as a moderator. He still logs in, but not very frequently, and I'd be surprised if he's posted more than once in the last few months.

Oh. Well. :/

...Maybe he'll join... again... like me... and then Rav can have his friends back?
Also... for a while I might just bring Magnus until I can get back into the feel of things. And don't worry, the others' absence would be... erm, explained?

YES! Please!! come back Caelei!!!

Buckdida should come back, if you return..

his stated reason for not wanting to RP anymore was that you, and teh brawler left the rp.

He says that he doesn't want to come back because he powergamed and led the plot too much...

I dunno, I just thought he played his character well...

Author:  Buckdida [ Sat Jul 14, 2012 3:09 am ]
Post subject:  Re: PF: Richardson Valley OOC

It's been a while. A year and four months, maybe? And a ton can happen in that time.

Even if I DO return, I have no idea if Venison will actually be the same character. I've certainly changed as a person, and with that, my style of writing and way of thinking.

Looking back, I see I made some grand mistakes RP'ing Venison: Powergaming, wrestling the plot away from other characters, and in general? Destroying the original direction of the Roleplay- which, if you care to look for it, is outlined at the start of Richardson Valley and in the original OOC for Pet Friendly. I don't think fighting pets, feral packs and animal control weren't part of the original idea- at least, not in the way we did them. I can't recall if that was my fault entirely, but Venision REALLY didn't help that.

Sure, it's possible Ven was written well, but he was roleplayed horribly. His weaknesses never really showed and he skirted around things in ways he shouldn't have. For example, how the heck did he manage to get up on stage and sing and impress people with that abysmal charisma score!? It was fun, and people did like the music post, but... it shouldn't have happened in the first place. Things could have gone different. Things SHOULD have gone different. How do I go about fixing so many mistakes? If I were to fix them now, it would seem weird, or even out of character for Venison. All of this is said to convey my feeling that Venison is pretty much un-salvageable in this particular RP as a character.

I like Ven, and I want to RP. But now I'm different and so Ven is different. I'm really unsure that I want to rejoin and certainly have not been keeping up with the RP. Not to mention I haven't RP'd in ages, so I'll be rusty, AND I have no idea where my RP'ing skills are right now. Heck, I'll even need to go back and read up Ven's backstory again so I can get a handle on his personality and remember what the heck he's done overall.

...

And really? We had an Alien arc? What the heck? Wasn't RV supposed to be *somewhat* grounded in reality, or something? At least, last I recall when I played here. I don't think I would feel like I'm getting back into the same RP even, at this point- though that would be my fault, being gone for over a year.

I've mostly left the forums for personal reasons besides; namely an association with unneeded stress and a chapter of my life that needed to be done and closed! I finally stepped down as Mod when I felt that the forums deserved more than my constant inactivity and growing lack of interest- I knew the community needed someone who could do better. As Diss noted, I've been largely inactive. I'm simply not as invested in the community anymore. If I hadn't been bugged over Skype, I probably wouldn't have even checked the OOC. I only join the main IRC channel because friends I've gained mess around and talk in it. Sometimes, even, I *gasp* forget to read the newest comic!

Sorry to throw such a massive damper on you all, but you're going to need to be very convincing and have some very good ideas if you're going to get me to rejoin. PM me, maybe, if you don't want to clog up the OOC.

However, you do have a start- a main someone that was a very, very important character for Venison. I never thought that Caelei and Pavelle would ever come back. I almost can't believe it! I feel like I'm seeing an old friend again after they dropped off the face of the Earth for, oh, a year? :lol:

Why is everyone always hating on the alien arc?
I mean i go for the ultra realistic for RV.
but a lot of people believe in aliens, and believe that alien abductions are real.

Given that all of the current active players we have now, other than Rav and Blood, Joined after Caelei and Buckdida left.
It would be possible to make any reasonable time has passed, since they left and there return.
Be that a day, week, month, or year.
If an when they do make there return.

Updated posting rules for RV.

#1, RV has had a min. posting rate of once per day.
Everyone should be endeavoring to, at least make this daily post if at all possible.
I realize this is not always possible, but an attempt should be made.

The reason for this is to keep the Roleplay days/Arc's from dragging on, and on, and on, like they have been for a while now. Waiting on one or several people to post. Inactivity is the biggest killer of RP's.

#2, RV has a max. posting rate of (5) posts per day.
This rule is to keep two characters chatting back and forth with each other, from spamming up the board. making it hard for the others to keep track of whats going on in the RP.

#3, If you have been waiting (2) days for someone to post, send them a PageMail.
Be Nice! they might have just suddenly gotten too busy in RL, to check up on the RP board.

#4, If you have been waiting (3) days for someone to post, and they have not responded to the PM. you are now to go on without them.
This means leaving them behind, perhaps leaving a trail so they can catch-up when they return from being AWOL. Or evoking Special Rule #3. taking minor control of the other character, so your character can escape and keep active in the RP.

#5, If you have not posted in the RP for a week, (7) days. you will go on the inactive list. If you have not posted in the RP for two weeks, (14) days. you will be dropped from the RP.
Sorry to be so draconian about this, but we have way too many characters that go silent for weeks or months at a time. I have to figure that if you have not posted in the RP for two weeks, you not really interested in being in the RP in the first place.
This rule will not be applied to those who "state in the OOC" that they are going to be away, for any reason. (vacation, finals, sickness, or just needing a break from the RP.) Altho i would ask that you disengage your characters from the RP, if at all possible.
Nor would this rule be enforced, if you go AWOL do to events that you couldn't control. (computer malfunctions/virus, power loss, loss of net-access) Do try to let us know that your having problems, or give a forewarning ( hey all. a hurricane is coming my way, i may disappear for a while).



I posted this notice a week ago, If these character's do not post in the RP by midnight, July 21.
they will be dropped from the RP. Sorry.

You can post anything..
Going to the wall for a midnight snax.
Getting in pajamas and going to bed.
Sneaking out of the house to go throw eggs at Rav.

but post something, the clock is ticking...

That's a nice set of rules, though you might want to get some feedback on them before you use them too much. Do they have to pester before they leave behind?

Wait so you mean, Keesh, that Pavelle and co. could've been gone for more than a couple days? Because it would be helpful for me if they'd been gone at least a month.
And if Buck did decide to rejoin it would probably be helpful for Ven, too. It would help explain away the differences in Ven's character and in my own characters', since Buck and I are super rusty RP robots right now.

And I'm just saying that I agree with the new rules. Though I don't know if you've sent them as a PM to any of the currently inactive players? Just to give them a head's up sorta thing...?

Author:  RockstarRaccoon [ Sun Jul 15, 2012 2:33 am ]
Post subject:  Re: PF: Richardson Valley OOC

If the characters haven't even met Venison or Pavelle, why would they even notice a big difference? My RP characters have changed MASSIVELY since season 1 of BsM. Even in GC, where we're at the end of the first day, Hate's been totally rewritten as a character since his first appearance.

Other than scoffing in the face of established cannon, changing your character later on isn't THAT bad...

Author:  Keeshah [ Sun Jul 15, 2012 5:09 am ]
Post subject:  Re: PF: Richardson Valley OOC

yes, Caelei. you can be gone as long as you want/need to be. if fact being gone a couple of months would help explain the turn over of pets in the town, and why you dont know anyone anymore.

Post subject:  Re: PF: Richardson Valley OOC

Hey... I'm going to repost my characters here while I'm at it. Um. I don't think they're even in the current board, just the old one. So yeah.
