PostSubject: The Steel Curtain   Mon May 13, 2013 1:21 am




"You're not going to like this at all. This is fair warning and warning enough. Sure, you'll see a couple of butterflies along the way, and maybe even a tulip or a thousand, but no one says it's going to be sunshine all the time. Butterflies get their wings plucked. Bees are too hostile to pollinate those tulips, so kiss the petals while you can, kid. They ain't nothing but a step in the direction you need to go."

"You know that sense of right and wrong you thought you had growing up? Well, you can shove that sense in the gutter, because you're not focusing on the right one anymore. You need to focus on your sense of tactic and individuality, because if you don't Saint Jin will get his way. Who's Saint Jin? Come on, Kid. I thought you woulda caught on by now. You remember that big fat kid who blew up the elementary school, killing 6 teachers and 18 kids after giving them the option of giving all of their lunch to him to make him strong enough to beat Bully Ryan? They refused and then, to show them the error, that 8 year old fatty chunked a huge one out the school, let Ryan live, and Ryan Ulter turned out to be that serial killer in Minnesota?"

"That fat kid was Saint Jin."

"That fat kid was also one of the dectives who found Ulter. He wanted to show Ulter that killing 4 people after watching an 8 year old kid kill 24 was silly. How can that be? Simple. Saint Jin is Traveler. Just like me. Just like you and those other kids."

"You think this is the only place bad things happen to? You're wrong. This is only Second Earth, the present. There's still First Earth, Third Earth, Yurok, Nielheight, all of those other places in Halla. Oh, whats Halla? That's the entire life and existence as we know it. Take this universe and add a crap load of more universes in it. Saint Jin wants to corrupt Halla and make it his own...and you know how he's going to do it? He's Traveling to different Verses and finding their climax of right and wrong, and twisting the mind of the people to make the Verse fall."

"Take this, theres a Verse called Iloid. They thrive in mining diamonds, riches, gems, but all of the gems are going to merchandise like food and clothes. The miners think it needs to be this way to make Illoid strive. The lloid civilians, however, want more riches. They want the gems and riches of the mine for themselves, so they demand that half of the profit goes to the King so that the King can make more expensive things that people can buy. Let them live the "high life" instead of bugging it in the streets."

"Saint Jin can change into any person and persuade the Iloid people of sending them into their own demise. No one knows who he is at the time. He could even be a close friend. All we know is that he can topple a Verse by not even touching it. That, in itself, is destroying Halla."

"Shit's a headache, I know. But, hey, there's a bright side. The Travelers are coming together to Travel to the other Verses and bring down Saint Jin wherever he is. You are the Traveler of this Verse. You need to take that ring on the ground and go to the door marked with a star that I showed you. Remember? From there, the ring will do the rest."

"And hey, Kid, promise me one thing. Don't think on your sense of right. Saint Jin is a complicated fellow, I know. But, sometimes, you have to make sure you're stopping his work, not the work of the people in the Verse. Because, if you do that, you'll be destroying Halla, and then you're no better than that bastard, are you."

"Good luck, kid. Halla needs you. All of you."

"Now go to the door. You'll know what to do. If you didn't, The Steel Curtain wouldn't have chosen you."



Marsha hung up the phone with an awkward close, looking over the blistering cold that was the Manhattan December night. The voice mail was the longest she had ever received, but it couldn't have felt any shorter in her entire life. She replayed it 6 times and still could not believe a word her Uncle Kurt told her, but there was something strange about his words. Strange about the story and the message...

... because if he were lying, then why was there a crude, encrypted star engraved above the broken down Manhattan subway with ring lying carelessly underneath?

Need To Knows!


Travelers- You are starting in this role play as a Traveler. Travelers are individuals that have the given ability to travel from one Verse to another. The way they do that is by something called a 'Traveler's Ring'. All of these rings look alike because it allows Travelers from one Verse to identify Travelers from the next. Each Traveler from every Verse make up The Steel Curtain. Every Verse is only allowed one Traveler. If there is another Traveler from the same Verse with a Traveler's ring, prepare to have that Traveler die off and the ring destroyed. There can only be one.



Traveler's Ring- This Ring is a simple, metal band with a red ruby encrystaled in the middle. Yes, it is always red. In order to Travel to a Verse, the Traveler's must first go to the T-Gate, a designated spot on the Verse, recognized by a 5 pointed star engraved into the location. For example, the Verse Iloid's T-Gate may be in a cave, a crudely drawn star on a rock being the giveaway. This ring allows Travelers to Travel to different Verses at the time and place they need to be. This is what makes Saint Jin so strong because he, as a Traveler with a Traveler's Ring, can do the same thing. If he corrupts a Verse from the inside out at the time and place that Verse is at, then that Verse has fallen and Halla is slowly destroyed.


Verses- These are another word for 'worlds'. In this Roleplay, there are only 9 Verses that make up Halla, including 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Earth. When you begin this roleplay, you may make up the Verse you come from. This Verse must be out of the ordinary, nothing plain and boring. For example, imagine a Verse in which people live underwater and to reach the 'surface' of that Verse, their sensitive, water-bred skin will instantly burn and blister. Gross, but, hey, it's a Verse! The civilization from each Verse HAS to be strange and very well thought out. For Example: No one, and I mean absolutely NO ONE, is allowed to be human[. I, playing the girl Marsha, am the only human. Everyone else has to be of a different species, be it elf with a DISTINCT physical abnormality, bug people, androids, what have you. I expect you all to think of your Verse and think of it well, because the other players will travel to your Verse, and you must take the wheel from there!



Halla- Halla is the existence of all life as we know it. It is made up of 9 verses. In order for Halla to stay in tact, it has created what is called the Steel Curtain in order to protect it's stability. Saint Jin is out to control Halla by making each Verse screw itself over. If Halla falls into the palms of Saint Jin, so to speak, then, well, the rp is over, lol.


Saint Jin- That'd be me! Very Happy I will be playing his role as well as Marsha's and a few other people. Saint Jin was once a part of The Steel Curtain from a Verse that I can not tell you. He was corrupted by mixing items from one Verse to another, which is a no no, and suddenly realized that Halla was too under-secured to be left in the hand of 8 imbeciles. So, he abused his Traveler's Ring and Abilities and is now trying to destroy each Verse from within. However, the way he does so is simple: he transforms into any one person and manipulates people to destroy it themselves. Pretty much, he is a dictator who advocates people to fuck themselves over, all while making it sound good to them. That is where the Traveler's come in. Your duty is to stop him! D:


Traveler Abilities- Each Traveler is given 3 abilities, 2 in which are normal, one is an Over-Unique ability. The first two can be simple: skill to run at high speeds, to see from far away, yadda yadda. The OU ability needs to be extreme though, like the ability to take over the mind for a short duration of time. NO Traveler may have the same ability as another! You can even work your Traveler ability to your advantage. For example, if you were from the mining Verse Iloid, you can make one of your ability the ability to be able to see in the dark. Sure it seems lame now, but what if you were in a Verse that was completely shrouded in darkness all the time? Then yay, you! Very Happy Please please PLEASE do not use MAGIC. Abilities and Magic are two different things. A giant fire ball from your palms is not gonna cut it.

Acolyte- These are people who assist Traveler's in their journey by not being Traveler's themselves. The person who gave you the same speech Uncle Kurt gave Marsha in the above post is an Acolyte, a former Traveler. There can only be ONE and you must make this person up. Whether it be friend, brother, mother, anyone. Acolytes have an important job: they must leave clothing and items from one Verse at a T-Gate for the next Traveler to come because you are NOT. ALLOWED. TO MIX. VERSES. For example, Marsha, being from Second Earth and a human, is not allowed to wear NO article of clothing from their or carry ANY items from that Verse. She must wear and use what is left at the T-Gate by that Verse's Acolyte.


Make sense? If not, message me. Smile

That's the brunt of it! And now Character Sheets! :3

Gender:(What you is?)

Age:(Be creative!)

Appearance:(Either an image, link to an image, or just a description)

Traveler Abilities:(Remember, you can pick 3! 2 are basic abilities and one is your OU (Over-Unique) ability! Make sure you let me know which one is which!)

Extras:(Anything else we should know?)

(Totally not taking this straight from someplace, simply because the plotline sounds similar to another I know. Razz I can think of another character if you want.)

Name: Koth of The Hammer

Gender: Male

Age: 50

Appearance: http://jpsmith-art.blogspot.ca/2011/06/koth-of-hammer.html

General Personality: Clear sense on right and wrong, defensive of his home and people, natural leader, can be impulsive and impatient, though he normally thinks before making decisions.

Acolyte: Venser, a human, is Koth's friend, a master artificer.
Acolyte: Okay, so the name is still Venser, still an artificer (which is rare for a Vulshok) but he's a Vulshok.

Verse: Mirrodin. A Verse made entirely of metal. The entire landscape, the trees, the grass. Entirely made of different metals. Even the wildlife is metal, and most inhabitants are made of metal, and the ones that aren't have some metal in them. There are 5 suns on Mirrodin, each a different colour. There is white, blue, black, red, and green. The suns are worshipped by different tribes and species on Mirrodin. The white sun is worshipped by the Loxodon (Elephantile people), and the Leonin (Cat-like people). Both are warrior races, with caste systems. The blue sun is worshipped by the Vedalken (They look almost alien with 4 arms), a race of advanced artificers. The black sun is worshipped by the Moriok, a cult of humans with necromatic abilities who use their zombie minions, the Nin. The green sun is worshipped by the Elves of Mirrodin, the Sylvok. They are the most natural beings on the Verse, and the tribes of the Sylvok have skills that make them adept at destroying the artifacts of Mirrodin. The red sun is mostly worshipped by the Vulshok (Like Koth) and the goblins of Kuldotha. The goblins are fairly typical, low intelligence, fanatical, very busy. The Vulshok exist in tribes, and are very industrious, refining metal with practiced precision, and often crafting it into useful inventions.
Verse: The same, except now It's only the Leonin who worship the White and Blue suns, and have powerful artificers in their ranks, and the Vulshok who worship the Red and Green suns, and are good at refining metal and fighting artifacts. The black sun is a sign of ill omen.

Extras: I dunno, anything you wanna know?


Abilities: Koth's first ability is the ability to turn parts of his body to liquid metal, and reform it on another part of his body, or fling it. For instance, he could for metal around his fist to make him hit harder, or fling the metal off to scald someone or mend something. His second ability is the ability to refine and purify any metal, and potentially add it to his body. Given enough metal, he could refine it to a metal exoskeleton to make himself stronger. This would, of course, require a bunch of metal, and this ability would mostly be to craft small things (Crudely, given Koth doesn't have much training as an artificer), or add more metal for Koth to hit people with. His unique ability would be to animate the earth, using a bunch of energy. He can animate a chunk of ground into an animate form to fight alongside him/accomplish a task.

ACCEPTED!

Name: A'lerryn [Pronounced Ah-LAIR-In]

Gender: Female

Age: 4. Age on Aldgar is not measured in years, but rather moon passings. In human Earth years, she's 24.

Appearance: A'lerryn's appearance depends on where you are, and who you are. On her home world [verse], Aldgar, her appearance is very different than where it may be elsewhere. In general, however, one would see her as a girl in her early twenties, with a few markings on her face that could be described as tattoos. A 'stripe' in the middle of her lower lip that was pure black, a dot between her brows of the same color, and a symbol on her right cheek that was almost like an arrow shooting through a gear - this one was a dark grey.
Her hair alternates between pure black and a dark blue, given the light, but it is always long and at least partially braided. Her choppy bangs are constantly falling in front of her lilac eyes, which is not a distraction to herself but may be an annoyance to others.



General Personality: Most of her personality stems from her Verse, so I'll describe a bunch of that below. You know, where it says 'verse'. Just to not be a complete twit and leave this spot empty, here are her likes and dislikes!
Likes: Shadows, purple, bats, pranks, reading, power, learning something new, different languages, fish [Both to look at and to eat], the moon, shiny objects, sweets.
Dislikes: Cute furry creatures, children, pink, bright lights, people who stutter, bossy people.

Abilities: Seeing in complete darkness [regular], shadow hopping [regular], living nightmares [OU, explained in Verse].

Acolyte: Her mother, who is now dead, which makes providing assistance a bit difficult.

Verse: Name: Aldgar.
Water/Land ratio: 80% water, 10% ice, 10% habitable land.
Size: Think Jupiter.
Population: Nobody has ever bothered to count.
Moons: 3.
Suns: 0. Light is provided by stars and the clouds that glow a faint orange.
Birth: People are not born from sexual contact. Instead, they grow in large spheres that resemble eggs, but ripple when poked. They are a pure black and grow on immense trees, surviving until plucked by a willing parental figure.
Interesting facts: There is no color on Aldgar. Black, white, grey, that's it. It is a result of the air mixture, making all colors vanish. Insert complicated scientific explanation here.
Also, Aldgarans find pleasure and amusement in scaring the living shit out of each other, which makes their terror tolerance very high for things that most people find frightening. They are able to travel in shadows, disguising themselves completely and even able to vanish from one shadow just to appear in another.
One ability that about half of this Verse possesses is the ability to make nightmares come to life. However, this is a restricted ability. Applying this to more than one person at once is extremely difficult, and the effects only last about an hour. It is impossible to make it last less than that, though, so take care not to piss an Aldgaran off or give them the impression that you want to play with them. The effect is visible only to the victim, giving an amusing sight to anybody watching. While outsiders see you stumbling around in a field of flowers, you can have demons all around you and be watching leeches suck off your skin. Yummy, huh?
Oh, and people from Aldgar die if they have fake sugar. :3 Don't feed them candy bars.

Aldgar:
 

Extras: A'lerryn was a thief before getting her ring.

Name: David "Duke"

Gender: Male

Age: 7 years since creation

Appearance: Basically, Duke is a large anthropomorphic purple ooze monster. Standing at 7 feet tall, having a broad chest with a muscular figure to fit. Since there are many of the same color of his species, Duke wears black sunglasses to distinguish himself from the crowd. When he removes his glasses, his eyes are pure yellow.

General Personality: Duke is pretty friendly. One of the most laid back monsters you could ever encounter. However, when provoked has the absolute worst temper around and it takes a bit to calm him down.

Likes: Poisonous Food, sweets of all kinds, music, sleeping, transforming for kicks, and fighting.
Dislikes: Anything with fur, bullies, and bees.

Acolyte: Daisy. Creator and last living relative of Duke.

Spoiler:
 
Verse: Loktopolis. A very ahead of the time verse, a futuristic robotic feel. Most of the inhabitants are robotic, but there few of Duke's kind that live underneath the town. These "rejects" are called the squishlings, and are not to par of being perfect like the robotic overlords.

The squishlings were created by the natural fuel within their verse and materials used to further advance their race ahead. The first squishlings were born by complete accident, then purposely for research, but after proving too much of a threat, were banished to the sewers under town. Not the typical sewers though, it runs like an underground city that is well cleaned and tended to daily.

Above the underground, the robotic empire is towered with buildings and inventions. Constantly watching citizens in their daily lives, but never intruding the home lives. The robotic overlords known soley as the Council of Cogs, have three leaders each with his own fearsome personality that keeps the town together and prosperous. They believe their council and kind to be of perfection and unmatched when it comes to advancing their technology. The technology relates includes mechanical defenses, bridges, traps, port, aircraft, and powering most of the town.


Traveler Abilities:
Basic:
Regeneration: Duke can regenerate his body as a sustained pace, but slows down while fighting or pushing his body actively for too long.
Stretch: Duke is able to stretch his arms and legs to heights that most others cannot.

OU:
Transform: Duke can register his brain to take the form of the shape he sees. Being able to hold this transformation in his head permanently to use for different situations. Duke cannot take the form of buildings or anything that is too small for him to see.


Extras: His favorite drink is Chocolate Sludge


ACCEPTED!

Name: Arterion

Gender: Male

Age: Four, but as his race lives a fairly short life, it is equivalent to around twenty.

Appearance: If Arterion wears armor or clothing, he vastly prefers very light apparel, so as to not inhibit flying.


Personality: Like the wind. His mood is ever changing, sometimes seemingly at random, and he doesn't like to dwell on any subjects that he deems unnecessary, he can't stand not doing anything at a given time. Everyone who knows him tends not to have long conversations with him.

Likes: Wind, clear skies, etc. He also likes to essentially show off his abilities.

Dislikes: Sleep, rain, and the elderly, any sort of feeling of imprisonment.

Acolyte: Milah, a fellow Trill who Arterion used to have a “romantic” interest in, but since being assigned the verse’s traveller, Arterion takes on a rather different demeanor, almost resenting her at times.

Verse: Arterion lives in a verse where the dominant race is an avian one, called the “Trill”, who spend most of their lives above the clouds; which can actually support the birdlike inhabitants. They do not typically make buildings, both because of the unlikelihood of them being supported by the clouds, and that most of them do not enjoy being tethered to one spot. Most of the creatures are not very social, preferring to stick to themselves. They are sustained by travelling down to the surface to hunt for food. The surface is earthlike, but there are no overly intelligent creatures living on the surface, so it is made up entirely of natural landscapes. Their are not very many conflicts within the Trill, but those that occur do so mainly as a result of shared interest in a single female mate.

Normal Abilities: Arterion is an adept flyer, even by the standards of most Trill, and can either fly for extended periods of times; or at excessive speeds, though he needs rest after such exertion. His other ability is that which allows him to hold his own in combat, which is more than can be said of the others of his relatively peaceful race.

Over Unique Ability: Arterion can put himself into a state of extreme focus, in which he can bend the thoughts of those who aren't particularly strong willed, but afterwards is rather susceptible to having his own thoughts easily bent by someone with a sufficiently silver tongue.

Name: Sun-lai

Gender: male

Age:186

Appearance: http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mdqlm9Amp91rsk8tpo1_1280.jpg

General Personality: Crafty, intelligent, and gentle. Sun-lai is a kind natured member of the Slyvari, despite his appearance.

Likes: Skyriders, skywater, plant-treasures

Dislikes: Tree-slayers, wood-munchers, Fairy's kisses.

Acolyte: So-Vule, an elderly Sylvari, and well over five hundred years old. He is a very influential spiritual leader, but has managed to keep his position of acolyte secret from the general public.

Verse: The world of the Slyvari is as one would expect, a lush forest of tropical flowers and warm weather. The world is about half water and half habitable land, though the Slyvari have not dominated their land in its entirety, and much variety can be found where they have landed, however. In the frigid North and South, the sylvari resemble pines and evergreens, in the temperate regions the broadleaf deciduous trees, and the tropical evergreens of the jungles. The dry desert regions and Tundras remain entirely untouched by the sylvari, but of course animals and plants also live in and across the world.

A typical sylvari city is almost indistinguishable at first glance, but they are as intricate and prosperous as any normal city. They have homes and shops, castles and churches, but all crafted from living plants. No trees are killed for wood, no stone mined for walls, though living barriers do protect important cities, as the Slyvari have separate nations and tribes, and not all enjoy each other.

http://images.mmorpg.com/images/galleries/full/292012/c333fabe-d584-4b9d-9240-32dc8a148323.jpg

Traveler Abilities: Normal: Impressive accuracy with the bow, and the ability to shape weapons from plants, such as bows, spears, etc, with a range of properties, an aspect of all Sylvari.

UA: Sunburst: As a sentient plant, Sylvari are able to release the energy they absorb from the sun as bursts of concentrated light, stronger the more energy they have stored, but as they run out, they grow weaker and sicker.

Name: Doctor Lars von Wer

Gender: Male

Age: 31

Appearance:

Personality: Very inquisitive, easily distracted by anything that he finds interesting, enamored with all things scientific, doesn't care much for rules, values any other sentient life more than his own.

Acolyte: Professor Rudolph Dawkins, the Neural Sciences professor for whom Lars had taken a job as a lab assistant. He was always very secretive about the nature of his research and why it mostly involved experimenting on a small ring that the Professor claimed to have "had for ages". When the Professor passed away one night in his sleep, Lars was informed that all his research data, as well as the ring they were researching, had been willed to him. A very old journal found amidst the Professor's research journals detailed his secret life as an Acolyte. It told of his duties and what he knew of The Steel Curtain. The last entry, made much more recently, was a message to Lars telling him where to find the door.

Verse: Third Earth - A technology-riddled dystopia, humans have gone so far as to implant technological upgrades in their brains at birth. These 'cyber-plants' are required by law, but more external upgrades are optional unless necessary to replace a lost limb. It is extremely difficult, and even more dangerous, to tinker with a cyber-plant. It is also highly illegal as more powerful cyber-plants are meant to indicate a person of great wealth or status. The ultimate symbol of standing is a cyber-plant so powerful that it will continue running your higher brain functions long after your body dies.

Traveler Abilities:

1. Being a scientist, Lars is very good with machines and technology. Given enough time, he is able to identify all the individual parts of a machine and extract any parts he might need or find a problem and jury-rig a repair.

2. Lars lost his sight when he was young. Because of this, he now has bionic implants in his eyes to let him see. Through some tinkering, Lars managed to add two extra settings: Thermal vision for detecting heat and energy detection for locating power sources.

3. Through a hidden interface in the cyber-circuit on the side of his face, Lars can adjust his cyber-plant to run at up to 400% efficiency. This process, which he refers to as 'overclocking', can be used to enhance any of his natural abilities, either physical or mental. The more strenuous the action, the less time he has before the power drains. If he overexerts himself while overclocked, he runs the risk of burning himself out permanently.

Extras:

Although his family has lived in England for generations, his ancestors came from Germany and his family believes in representing that through the keeping of their Germanic names.

Lars recognizes his society for the dystopia that it truly is. He sees that the cyber-planting is doing something terrible to the people of the world and they, in turn, are doing terrible things to the world itself. He chose to study the sciences and to specialize in neuro-technology in the hopes that he could one day find a way to release mankind from the grip of technology without killing everyone who already had cyber-plants.

ACCEPTED!

Name: Marshal "Marsha" Tenraven

Gender: Female

Age: 19

Appearance: Cocoa brown hair that ends at mid-neck length, striking cyan blue eyes, and the look of an innocent 12 year old. Marsha is 5"4, not the tallest 19 year old. She is very skinny and does not have a lot of strength to do hard, strenuous things.


General Personality: Marsha is generally a tentative person. She isn't the smartest kid in school, but she has an ever growing mind of common knowledge. She likes to sit and observe things going around her, not saying much but always on the look out for things that may pop out to her. She doesn't adapt well to change unless she feels safe with the person she is with. Her laughter comes from small, careless jokes and her fear comes from the unknown and reality.

Likes: Reading, being out with nature, swimming, funny people.

Dislikes: Darkness, insects, steep hills, gore.

Acolyte: Her best friend Lori. Lori is a goth on one hand and a nerd on another. She barely lets anyone see the smart side of her, though Marsha knows all about it. The two have been friends every since Lori saved her in a dodgeball game by taking a ball straight to the face. As her Acolyte, Lori keeps an account on all of Marsha's tales, writing it down for safe keeping in her laptop.



Verse: Second Earth, Manhattan, NY, present times. Pretty self explanatory.

Traveler Abilities: BASIC ABILITY ONE: The Ability to see long distances, up to 500 meters.

BASIC ABILITY TWO: The ability to scale large heights, easily climbing a mountain if it came to something like that.

OVER UNIQUE ABILITY: The power of persuasion. Based on her sheer will power, Marsha can make any idea seem like an agreeable option. At times, she does not mean to do her OU ability; it comes with the personality. However, if it is used without her knowledge, she will develop a very big headache and a distorted vision.

Extras: The Traveler before Marsha, Uncle Kurt, is the brother of Saint Jin though Marsha does not know it.

Gais! Gais GAIS! 8D

I am working on the first post as we speak, but you guys may get some really confused questions and such, so I'm just going to put a few facts about the first post right here!

If you have any more questions, just drop them here or message me directly!

-ELOX is the name of the First Verse.

-You all have heard the story of the Travelers and have arrived a few seconds/minutes before Marsha did in the same manor as she.

-The Traveler's Ring allows you to SURVIVE in the current atmosphere and climate of the Verse you're in and also allows you to speak the language of all Verses. IMPORTANT: The people/creatures of the Verse see you AS THEIR PEOPLE. For Example, the cat people of Elox see you as a cat person. If use an ability out in the open or in front of them, that image flickers and they slightly see you for what you are, so be very careful when using the abilities and who you use in in front of.

-Elox has two races only: Kha are cat people. Gar are human.

That's about it! Enjoy yourselves!

LEEROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOY JEEEEEEEEENKIIIIIIIIIIINS

It's amusing because I actually had that on repeat last night.. hm..

I can't wait for this to start! Also, for everybody in here, I'm going to take over the reins on a roleplay that was in the sign-up phase. The member who started it has, by all appearances, abandoned the site. I'm still interested in the roleplay so I'm going to do it myself xD Feel free to sign up if you haven't! I'll go post on it now so you can find it.

:-)

Not sure if actually can't see picture...

...Or knows what Silents are and is pretending to forgotten seeing the picture multiple times so brain comes up with a reason for not knowing what picture is.

No, second picture actually doesn't show up.

Also, for those of you who have already posted, please bear in mind that there are several people in this roleplay. You should not be posting more than once until everybody has entered, because posting back and forth between two people will advance the story more than needs to be.

So cut it out :-)

There, I used a different picture. Does that one show up?

Also, regarding the multiple posting, as long as it doesn't advance the overall story and people aren't cranking out 10 posts a day...or maybe not even 5...it shouldn't be too big of a problem. It'd be more like two people sitting around chatting and waiting for something to happen.

Just my opinions.
