  1. Sure, knock yourself out. Not like a name alone could make her anymore creepy... right? Good job with that fan art for Darkrose also.
  2. True. Foils and contrasts don't need to be in your face and constantly thrown at each other to exsist, much less work. A bit of subtlety and breathing room so both sides can be fully fleshed out on their own can do wonders to make something complex work. Which makes me wonder if we actually could have done better on purpose, or if us trying to switch to doing it conciously would have led to over compensation. Hm, there's some interesting implications about authorial intend in here.
  3. Not really. There were a lot of instances in the RP where the players picked up on opportunities and started to intentionally build on them further going forward. This wasn't one of those times. I actually had always considered Nighthound and Funtimes to have fairly little interaction for being in the same factions on account of them often doing their own thing. That's not to say there was nothing, of course, just significantly less than Funtimes interaction with Lightwards for example.
  4. Huh, that's some pretty good parallels you managed to observe there. I continues to amaze me how much of this stuff can just kind of happen without concious effort or anything of the like.
  5. Hm, there's probably some yangire in her. You know, besides her just being a psycho. I could actually see Kokichi's powers facilitating coincidences and random, yet significant, meetings, because of narrative laws and all that. Wouldn't be the strangest thing they do.
  6. So out of curiosity, do his bullets curve mid air or do they just kind of teleport to hit his target?
  7. Now I want a movie called "Who framed Kokichi Rabbit?" Seconding Whitaker for Funtimes. Otherwise not much of a casting person.
  8. I think I may have to start telling people apart by their signature. But how will I ever do that in real life?
  9. It's a shame the name Limelight's already taken. (Though, having glowing powers, while having her sight easily blinded by light sounds like a problematic combination.) Anyway just throwing a bunch of stuff out there: Brightclaw Nightrat Mousecutter Acidic
  10. Well duh. Red's company picking skills are in a unique class of their own and nobody could hope to replicate them.
  11. You could have meant it being a timeline where the lack of Calamity means she never got her powers, and she'd still use her new denim vested henchmen to change everything forever. I mean, she'd certainly like to.
  12. It'd be my honor. I mean, if there's any place for mixing stuff that doesn't fit together in similies etc., then it's anything Reckoners related. On the topic of roleplays at large, yeah the unpredictability is a big part of the fun too. The fact that everyone kind of works towards something more or less agreed on, without the details being ironed out means that the development of scenes/plot/etc is a lot more fluid than in a one author story. Which can lead to things being more natural, as what happens next is an actual reaction instead of a plan, or utterly crazy, because people are flailing around to figure out what to do next. Both are very interesting to watch both in action and as a whole. Also, side question, does anyone remember some kind of notable bar/hotel being established already?
  13. I think the abyss wrote me an entire autobiography to really drive the point home. That sounds close enough. Maybe add a bowl of sapient cookies (that like getting eaten) to the step one group.
  14. I dunno? Practicing your imagination in certain ways? How do you come up with Red stuff?
  15. Oh so that's where all the likes came from. I'll try to be as monstrous as possible once he comes back to not let you down. As for multiple names. I once was in a class with three other people that had the same name as me. Eventually they just stared using our full names.
  16. Really, I like the mental image of the entire town going poof, except for the one patch with the rocksitter. Eric patts his rock in graditude, as Obliteration teleports in, baffeled how he's still alive. He starts monologuing and bible quoting, but Eric remains stone cold at Obliteration's attempts to burn him. Ultimately, Obliteration just throws his hands in the air and tries to kill Steelheart instead, that one has to be easier.
  17. Eh, that was mostly for some administring stuff at the beginning. You really don't have to ask my permission for this kind of stuff. Until you guys set up the return of Nighthound I'm more tangentially related to this anyway. Edit: Like, I'm fine with making the call if something is in any way contentious, but I have absolutely no reason to block something everyone is on board with. Plus, we already established that importing characters from the old threads is a-okay.
  18. So is this the point where we see if things worked out with Shiny, or is she just going to arrive solo with everyone else at home? Nighthound: [Redacted] Shiny Sparkle: [Redacted] (For completely different reasons) Voidgaze: Make lots of food, probably cure world hunger while she's at it.
  19. What about getting an assistant to shoot you opponent in the face? Bonus points for them being controled by certain powers.
  20. Something along those lines, yeah. Like, Epic powers cheat a lot when it comes to measures, like the Tensor power creating less debriss then it should and Obliteration getting more energy out of sunlight than he should, and do things like teleporting, transforming matter and all that super jazz, but I don't think there's an instance where the material Epics create don't act like material would normally. Sparks, even intagibility needs to be combined with flight powers, because otherwise they'd fall through the ground.
