I'm putting this game on indefinite hold.  The original idea I had seems less workable the more I think about it, and due to various real life concerns, I don't have the energy to run a game.  It's not fair to you guys to leave you all in limbo like this, so I won't.  I'll let you know when (if) I restart the game; it may be a while. 

I'm really sorry about this, guys.

Hey, ya gotta know when to hold 'em and know when to fold 'em.  Thanks for the effort you put into the game, Ria. :D  It was definintely worth a shot and an excellent RP excercise.

*tap tap tap* is this thing on?
hang the first thing if it's unworkable. Make up something new. we just need some sort of mission or goal and you can make up the rest as we go :)

Well, I'm pondering some possible ideas, but the various real-life things still mean I haven't got the energy to gm.

Great idea. Perhaps we'll get it going again.

Think of it this way: if she doesn't have time for the game, she probably doesn't have time to move it to the inactive section. Right?

Heh, tru' dat.  Anyways, if this thing gets itself a kickstart in the exceedingly near future I might be able to plays for a whiles again.

No, my affections have not been redirected.  I guess you all really want to play, huh?

Give me a few days to come up with something, and I'll probably restart the opening, since we weren't too far along and I don't like what did happen.

Roll call, who's in, who's out.

All right, I have a sort of idea as to what will be going on.  You can play the same characters, or you can play a new one.  If you decide to do a new one, pm me the details.

I'll probably restart the game Friday or Saturday.

Okay.  Some background.  First of all, none of the events of the previous thread seem to have happened.  None of the chars quite remember how they met, but what's important is that they all work together, for a man named Jay Messenger.  He's sort of a private detective, but only takes "special" cases (and does very little of the work himself).  Other people with powers have popped up in various places around the world, some less harmless than others.  There doesn't seem to be any pattern to who has powers, what the powers are, or where they show up.  Everyone's powers have completely manifested and they know how to use them.

Any questions before I start this baby?

One metagame question, and one more IC question.

1) Will we be getting more and more powers? Such as, upgrading, adding new ones, etc?

2) Will it ever come out how we met? Like, were our memories wiped, or are we just leaving it as the great mystery of the past that nobody thinks/cares about?

1.  Entirely possible, you never know.

2.  If the game goes long enough to reach that point, yes, it'll come out.

With number two, I was more concerned about the rping possibilities. Like, will they really think about it at all? Or is it really a 'nobody cares, you're all partners' deal?

Aaah, that.  Well, if you want to wonder about it, go for it (and you might just get some extra info in pm), or you could play it off as you don't really think about it.  Either is okay with me.
