Haha, sorry. I have band camp these next few weeks, so I may be a little tied up. I will definately post by tomorrow (in the morning sometime), my day off from band. I might be able too squeeze it in this morning, but I have to leave in a few hours.

As long as it's just a bit of temporary lack of time, It's completely understandable and you shouldn't post until you feel like you have time to sit down and concentrate ;D

Edit: i hope nobody finds it difficult to post now. I would recommend for client players to put stuff in their sylladex (5 things) and keep talking to their servers and for server players to either go will trying to build stuff or ask your mysterious new chum for advice. And do deploy those machines...
I'm sort of just waiting for other people to post before I post again, although I guess I could post today if you'd like me to… I kind of already know what I'm going to do.

Hopefully I'll get a post up by the next hour or the morning.~ I managed to get an idea of what my post will be made up of.

Finally someone deployed the most important machine ;D


EDIT: Otherworld9) showed a good way of getting your items back out form the Sylladex! My thought is that eventually, the characters will become so accustomed to "thinking things out" from it, so they only have to touch the pendant and the wallet will appear and throw out the right card and item just by the command of a thought. But you'll still have to pick out a card manually in order to store a new thing.

Also, I updated the FP (first post) in the IC thread. We'll see for how long I can keep up with it xD

Oh. Good! So we don't have to deal with impossible to use Sylladex Modi? I was already dreading having to use something like Dirk's. x(

EDIT2: Do we need to have a juju?

what is a juju lol

The only bell that rings when I hear that is if you mean like Li'l Cal and Bec and Nanna - a guardian... who might become a sprite. Is that a juju?

EDIT: Hahaha! Awesome use of the server player powers, drunk xD Server players can move around stuff in the client player's house and in some range around it. Now, to write out Gavin's reaction...

For you who have read Homestuck, the server player's radius won't depend on where the player is, in Checkmate. Instead the server can do stuff all around the house at any time.


Oh, I forgot to answer about the sylladex. No, no silly modi. I don't see a practical necessity for that in the RP xD The pendants on the chain de-abstract the sylladex in a good enough way... I hope.


EDIT2: why aren't we allowed to double/triple/multipost xD Retro Bug! If you want to control Gavin, I can erase my last post. Just say so. I posted before I realized that I had given you guys control over your family for now.

Oh really? That's good. I was afraid I probably did it wrong somehow. ^^;

I was getting worried there. xD Like drunk said, Dave's would be a mess, but hilarious.

As for the update, that will help me a ton once I get posting. That way I can just look there instead of reading on my past posts. =P I had to add Mr. Fluffy. I just had to.

As for the Sprites, since we are getting close, I suppose any kind is allowed? Or do you have it planned? I can imagine one of us randomly making an object fall there, like Dave's dead bird.

The way I'm thinking now... You can prototype with anything. You choose! And either one or two before the hatching.

But, hm, for RPing (and actually canon) reasons, at least ONE of the two things you prototype with should be some kind of... well, something that is/has been/resembles a living thing. Because if you prototype with a toy boat and a comb, the sprite won't really be useful XDD


I hope this doesn't sound like too much greeknadabingbong for Retro Bug and Evan ;; But it's good if you follow what I bolded above when you get there. And that'll hopefully be soon.

And to drunk and Otherworld - I don't want to explain everything before we get there in the games, because I'd like to try and keep some of that wonderful feeling Homestuck gives when you read it for the first time - that the game and world grows and grows... :3

Im not going to lie, you guys lost me at sprites. What do sprites do in Homestuck? How do you get them/why would we pick a certain one over another?

And what of this prototype business?

Yeah, I feel you.
Spoiler:
Can I help you come up with the worlds though, I have some pretty cool ideas, unless you're already done with them.
Alas, no mor spoilers from me. :X

Anyways, I guess now I just have to wait for Retro Bug to decide what happens with Gavin, although I'm pretty sure that if it's left up to Ricardo he's going to be stuck in the bathroom for a while… xD

PS: Do you guys like my new avatar/title/location/siggie??? :D

Don't worry, I'll make sure to explain when we get there. Probably through velociClamper ^^


... derp ok click the spoiler for sprite / prototype info. IF YOU REALLY CAN'T KEEP YOURSELF FROM BEING SURPRISED ;_; :D

Spoiler:
But ok, the sprite will appear very soon. One for each player. They are meant to function as guides, explaining some basic stuff about, hmm, about the game and world to the players so that they know what the hell they have landed in. And then they can assist the player in other ways... even battle! derp I didn't want to say this much but here you go XD They look like ghosts, with certain features.

Anyways, that's why it's important that at least one of the prototypings have a face. It wants to talk with you! Prototyping is when the unhatched sprite loads something into itself and takes on some of its features. The something can be anything, really.

One of the canon characters prototyped their dead grandma's ashes and a joker doll and the sprite became "Nannaquin", a harlequin ghost with grandma's face and boobs. Another character prototyped a dead crow with a sword through it's belly - it was dead because he had thrown a sword through it.




@ drunk - Hahahhaa stuck in the bathroom... such a good plan. Let's see what Retro says about my post first ._. Also, nice signature! I feel it's time to change mine too...

Spoiler:
And... the worlds are all made up and done ;D they are wwaaaiiitiing for uuu
Maybe if I ever do this RP again, I can let the players customize their worlds a bit. It's fun to make up that stuff, after all. I had loads of fun thinking them up xD Hope they will be good enough to you.

Woah, nice ideas we all have =P I get you though, Red, I prefer them to be surprises. ;3

Haha, yeah, I have one idea to use for the sprite, but for now, I'll wait until I'm right there at the RP to think about it. xD

@drunk - I like Roxy Lalonde, so it's all good~ Lol, it must be very delicious xD

No worries you can control him! I'd rather you do it then me.

Now to catch up and write up my post. Yay!

Sounds good, Otherworld.

Retro, ok :3 Right now it's up to Ricardo/drunk where he ends up though xD bathroom, come on!
And for the smoothness of playing, I'd say drunk is allowed to bunny Gavin for now. Is that ok with you, Retro?


@Everyone - when you are done writing a post, read through it an extra time before posting. I notice some of you having trouble staying with a single tense through a post (some start in present then switch to past and then back) and some have trouble staying with the 2nd person view and slip over to 3rd person from time to time.

You can change between posts, of course, so if you one day feel like writing a 3rd person post and then the next day do a 2nd (or even 1st!) person post, go ahead. But within one post, stay with one style of writing! I'm using 2nd person present tense since I'm more or less talking directly to your character. Like in the OOC-like IC post to Vieve just now xD
Thank you :3


@ Otherworld - and I love your sig, but this is Eridan's best quote, I think:
It's hard. Being a kid and growing up. It's hard and nobody understands.

It's time we sped this up though! In the words of a very wise (although likely bipolar person(?)):
"DAMN I HATE THE BEGINNING OF THIS GAME"

… ok, I don't, but I like the middle part better :D!

PS:
@Red: If I decided to try my hand at speculating our characters' roles, this probably would be the place to do it right? To avoid spoilers and such…

Gaah. The tense thing is totally me I'll try to be more aware of it when I'm posting from now on. x; And, :p anyone with a reason to bunnying Gavin can do so.

@ drunk - Ok that's enough of bunnying Gavin though, no more lol xD

I'm quite content with the rate of posting in the IC so far. I don't demand that you post every day, even though it's nice. Some days you don't have time and other days you simply don't feel like posting in a certain RP for whatever reason. At least I can can feel like that sometimes. I'm just posting as soon as I can in Checkmate now because I don't have any other RP to post in :3


About roles and aspects, I won't be using the canon descriptions of them, because some are just so foggy and strange and not fitting for RPing without giving the characters godmodding powers or letting them know stuff that I don't want players to have control over.

If you want to speculate or talk about this more, put in spoilers :3 Evan and Retro will likely click them anyways xD but just so they're warned that the things inside might not make every bit of sense to them... yet! Eventually inside the game, it will start to matter. But not for now.

I do have a question about the whole weapon thing. Is there any way to transfer the Steak Knife to the green card so that it becomes a Knifekind or should I just get another knife or something?

Yes. You do like Candice did and take out the pink card and "reach" for the knife with your thoughts (and with your hand if you like) and it will pop out from the pink card. That card will then become empty and the steak knife will be an ordinary steak knife again. Then you can just let it touch the green card and the Strife Specibus will turn into knifekind, allowing you to store as many different kinds of knives as you'd like in it, because there are many more empty green cards there.

Well, he can move it. But that uses up some grist. Eventually you won't have much grist left... and Candice will be forced to collect more for you in a very action-RPG-ish way. More about that very soon.
