If you really want me to give you an initiative penalty, I will... :lol:  You don't have to wait for your turn to post, but your action won't take effect until your turn comes up.

Nobody posted at all :(
I'll let Ria do the skull cracking.

I've been trying to stick to one post a day but I seem to still be posting too fast. how do we want to pace this?

Well, I'm not really trying to hold it to a fixed schedule.  I'm on pretty much every night, so I can more or less go as fast as you guys do.  Also, I'm not sure what timezone everyone is in.  I'd like to keep the pace up, and if someone is going to be away for an extended time, it would be nice if they tell me. 

Just for clarification, what is everyone's average post time?  Once a day, once every couple of days, once a week...?

I shoot for once a day, though I try to check it in the morning when I get up and at night before I go to bed.

I do at least once a day.  I haven't posted today 'cause I figured we were posting in order of initiative.

Oh, and I'm EST.

Hmm.. I've just now realized that Muro's the first one up, and I haven't seen him in a little while.  There might be a slight delay.

Yes, you guys can post anything that happens before all hell breaks loose.

Also, this seems a good time to mention energy points.  Unless I activate your power for my own nefarious reasons (which means that it wasn't a conscious activation), it costs energy to activate a power and maintain it.  You all have an energy point pool, and if you want to know the number I'll tell you.  Usually it takes one point to activate a power, some maybe more, depending on power.  Getting 8 hrs sleep replenishes this pool (sort of like spells).  If you have any questions, please ask.

Well, if they haven't posted by, say 10:00, EST (four hours), I'll skip them this round, say they just hit the ground.

I don't know how I'd go around activating Anat's powers if she doesn't know she has them.

maybe if she gets shot she'll be more motivated. I'm reminded of the last episode of Heroes...

Dozus, isn't it bad for a priest to be suicidal?

Eh, depends on what you mean by suicidal. Most Christians consider themselves perfectly fine substitutes for others in mortal danger. Suicide itself is frowned upon, but getting killed by someone else in the place of another is noble. After all, look at Jesus. He knew about his death, and faced it willingly. [/religious subtopic]

It is, Andimia, but Mikey is praying to God in Heaven that he won't end up a martyr just yet. :wink:

I have a Scras answer...

I hate to do this, but I am going to have to back out of Black Waters, I don't seem to have the time to give the game that it deserves. I am backing out of Ria's Supers game as well.

As for Muro, I think RL got hold of him again.

So what to do next is completely up to Ria...

Well, I'm going to write Scras's char out of the game (for now).  Might bring in another player, I don't know.  As for right *now*, I'll give it a little while longer to make sure everyone's actions are posted, then go on to the next round.
