Yes!

I know exactly who/what Rampage and Veloci are now!

That's pretty cool actually!

Well, not exactly who they are, but I think I know what they are…
Spoiler:
Does green and uu make sense for Rampage for example?

Also, I'm going to go ahead and post some ideas for roles since this won't matter in the end anyways…
Spoiler:
  1. Vieve => Heir of Time
  2. Candice => Witch of Life
  3. Ricardo => Seer of Space (this one would be freaking awesome)
  4. Vinnie => Bard of Heart (this one would be awesome for other reasons… xD)

I'm not going to comment on that. *evil grin*

About title speculation... (title = Role of Aspect. Example from Homestuck: Bard of Rage, Knight of Time, Witch of Life etc.)
(Aspect ~ your kind of power. Role ~ how you are supposed to use your powers)

To drunk:
Spoiler:
Of the 8 things you guessed now, at least 2 were right ;p

I'm still trying to practice on my past/present tense thing. I can't seem to shake that bad habit off ._. Although I'll try harder and see if I can stick with one tense without messing up. ^^;

Not necessarily. I'm not doing everything like Hussie does it. This is Checkmate, not Homestuck.

That link comes up as "bandwidth broken" or something for me. Anyways, remember that this thread is for discussing things related to Checkmate. It's not a Homestuck fan thread. Just a little bit! So keep stuff related to the RP somehow :3 So that Retro and Lt. Col. at least have a chance to keep up with the discussion.

Nope. But I guess that's the beauty of Google images… '

That's good to know, I though those were the only two I actually guessed right…

That's a shame. ):
And yeah, I'll refrain from posting many more spoilers (if there's even anything left to spoil xD)

We can still talk a liiiiittle about Homestuck because it's awesome to find other people who like it in a place that you like. Like you guys on PC<3 But only a little. :3

But yeah, all Checkmate stuff will be revealed soon enough ^^ when the game allows it! Oohoho, soon the action will begin!

Oh right, I keep forgetting. X[ But I'll keep that on mind.

I tried writing on first person this time, since it helps to maintain the present/past tense thing...not sure if it's worse or better than my usual writing. ^^;

Spoiler:
As for the quiz, I got this:

Spoiler:

Knights are a warrior class. They assist their team by fighting through their aspect, as well as by providing leadership.

Space players can warp space at will, adjusting the size and momentum of objects. They are absolutely essential for any session to be victorious, as they are responsible for the creation of the new universe.


Seems legit enough.

I love that you wrote in first person! I actually think it can help both with that and with making sure that you only control your main character ;) It also makes sense, seeing as my posts are in 2nd person, talking to "you" who writes in 1st person.

Oh, the quiz worked? Now I just have got to try myself.

And so did Evan! I like it :3 just know that you are still allowed to write in another format if you want to.

Hahaha Vinnie destroying Candice's bathroom... I get an urge to play Tulio Greyson (her father) for a little reaction now.

Otherworld, did you have a plan for where he went? Now when he's not in his room.

First person is weird after doing second person for so long. Gaah I think I did a bit better with the tenses.

First person can be easier to do if you write in past tense :3 Like Vinnie's and Candice's last posts. At least I think so. But present first person makes for the most alive feeling to the text, I imagine. *goes to read*

Yeah I kept slipping into past tense but I thought it might sound better in present. Maybe I'll change it to past.

EDIT: Fff. I'm pretty sure I slipped into future tense. I wasn't even thinking about future tense. Great.

Awesome~ Can't wait to see the reaction then.
Well, knowing her dad, I imagined him going to the bathroom, tbh... xD Then when she disappeared into her room, he wondered where his steel bat was...

I'm not even sure if I'm writing in past or present tense...I managed to avoid future tense though.

I tried to keep things in past tense, but this is honestly my first writing in first person (a first for firsts)

Man, do you guys ever have that weird feeling that a word is weirder than other words when you say that word over and over? Like right now I'm contemplating on whether first or weird is the weirdest word, ya know? Gaaah! I'm so freaking weird. Weird...weird...yup. Thats definately weirder than the word first...but the word word is pretty weird too...like....world..but word. Ya know?

RAGE.

(Fujin and Rajin nod)

I'm sorry, I'm off the meds right now. Word...word...weird....first.....word...

[FONT="Tahoma"]Future tense? Haha, wow :D

@ Otherworld - Oops... haha, well, he could have returned to his room just before Vinnie massacred the bathroom.

@ Lt. Col. - XD I know exactly what you mean, I hate when that happens! You can't use a certain word for a while because it feels sooo weird. We have a term for that here in Sweden: "non-word". When you say a word too much so that it becomes a non-word.


EDIT: While I think it's a good and fun thing that we explore different tenses and views of writing from in this RP, things are getting a bit too confusing now ^^' It's nice if the posts are smooth enough to read. Re-read your post when you've finished writing it, before you post it, to spot any weird changes in tenses and correct them. Thank you :3

I always have that happen to me. When ever I type out a word so much, or even say it often, it sounds...weird. It happens a lot with "However" and "because." xD Even the word "word" sounds weird...

Yeah, I figured as much. xD

As for the tenses...I hope I did okay. I reread it and corrected a few errors here and there. I type out the first-type narratives the way the character would think them as. Maybe I should tone it down and leave out a few details.

First person is quite fun to write, but sometimes I go too far and include useless details, especially with mental conflicts.

On other news, I've officially joined the first person revolution. I guess it wasn't as bad as I somehow expected it to be, but I did sort of enjoy second person more… I think?

I don't know, let me know what you think. If you really prefer first person I guess I could just stick with it. /shrugs

Nah, I like your details! And I'm starting to get used to the tense flips so don't worry about it anymore ^^ We really get to feel what Candice is feeling.

This is the only part that happened to be in past tense:

I went ahead and searched for her around the house but somehow I couldn't find her until I saw her coming out from a shed…

Other than that, awesome :3
