Forum game: RP discussion thread
Hello everyone.

I have created this thread, as now that we have a seperate RP thread, at least to me, it has felt awkward to talk about RP. It doesn't belong in the RP thread, and it feels awkward and out of place in the discussion thread. Also, such posts could easily get lost in the shuffle.

Thus, now we have a place to talk about RP. A place to talk about people's RP entries, discuss RP elements between us, and possibly plan joint RP entries.

Re: Forum game: RP discussion thread
And now I'll start it off. It was Admiral MS's latest RP post that got me to do this, but his wasn't the first one to make me think I want to say X, but... I am really liking the RP.

So I'll just say this, I thought it was a good post, I enjoyed reading it, and I particularly liked the part about the Nordera's fighting spirit going up being disturbing, and, despite, or perhaps because of the fact I am a CRF Admiral, I found the commentary on the CRF both interesting and amusing. Yes, I can imagine the DD and CRF not exactly seeing eye to eye... :D

I think this was also the first post to really branch out into a wider area than just a player's own fleet, encompassing multiple fleets and events, so I found that interesting and I thought it was well done. An overview of events happening in the South.

So while those were the highlights, I enjoyed reading the whole thing, and it made me want to put the final touches on the post I made underneath it, which was nearly ready.

I've been one-upped by Lepanto! :lol:

I had thought about fighter squadrons, but have no idea how many would be in a fleet. But I intend to follow your lead and update my post to match the new standard. I also in my mind have always had the fleet split into three sections, though I would never have thought to split it in my post, so it's very interesting you did that, I'll definitely have to do that too, I always had in my mind the CRF Unbreakable Tenacity and CRF Boundless Confidence as the two next best ships in my fleet.

Hey Spoon, if you're reading, do you think you could get Lepanto a shot of his flagship in one of your videos like you did mine so he doesn't have to borrow mine? I have absolutely no problem him doing so, but it would be nice if he could display his own flagship.

Hey everyone! Let's see your fleets! :D :cool:

Re: Forum game: RP discussion thread
I think this thread might be a good area for productive RP collaboration, if people used it.

Maybe we could do some sort of plot arc where the DD and CRF admirals in the south have to learn to work together effectively against the enemy, despite the DD admirals' dislike of the CRF.

========================

I roughly derived my carriers' squadron totals from the numbers of squadrons aboard FS destroyers. If Spoon gives us an accurate number of squadrons per carrier, I'll change it.

Conversely, to talk about poverty and inequality, to draw attention to the reality that discrimination and injustice are still facts of life, is to commit the sin of political correctness. Anti-PC has become the latest cover for creeps. It is a godsend for every curmudgeon and crank, from fascists to the merely smug."

I'd certainly be interested in seeing that, I found it interesting what he had to say about the CRF.

I'm sure the Hertak could "help" you to work together. :)

I've been typing up some names for my own fleet for fighter squadrons. I'll wait to see if we get an answer from Spoon.

Wow, Lepanto. That was great.

Not only that, for me, since we all read at different speeds, those musics all ended just as I finished the passage associated with them, so that was a special experience.

Do you think the 3rd CRF admiral escaped in an Excalibur?

Depends on if Torchwood wants to keep playing, which we don't know yet.

Why thank you.

You're welcome Lepanto.

As for Torchwood, things could get interesting if this is the real Jack Harkness. For those who don't know:
Spoiler:
Jack Harkness is immortal. He dies and is reborn. He could be dying over and over and over again in the vacuum of space...

So he will probably be back. Then fight the Hertak again.

Don't look so smug, I know what you are thinking, but Draco was merely a setback. Do you honestly believe that I let myself be defeated so easily by some cowardly alien mongrels? Hahahaha, no no no, it was merely a strategy, a stepping stone for a much larger plan. It has all led to this, and this time, you Hertaks have no chance to survive so make your time.

Awww. I've just noticed Torchwood put John Harkness, not Jack.

No immortal explodey vacuum fun... :(

You're welcome. And thank you.

The speech was nice btw. Maybe after you wipe out the 1st Hertak, Spoon can give you a promotion to match the other DD Admirals, and then you can take Inspirational Leader as well, and have the speeches to back it up! :)

Re: Forum game: RP discussion thread
Too soon for a promotion. Other admirals have seen much more action than I have and it would be unfair for me to be promoted before them.

Not that I'd really mind, of course.

And I a seriously considering Master of Logistics, or Breakthrough Specialist instead. You never know when you'll have to retreat pronto.

Re: Forum game: RP discussion thread
If I get promoted I'll probably take those two in that order. I'm just concerned about the DD's morale problem.

Breakthrough Specialist will be superb for the Sol Fleets.

Re: Forum game: RP discussion thread
A couple of very nice new RP posts.

Enioch, while I certainly liked the first part, it was the second part that really got my attention. I am pleased to see that Olga Ilieva is back, I didn't expect to see her again, and I am most interested in seeing more of this ship-level story you have going on here. I like it a lot, it's really giving me a feeling of what it's like to be on board that ship, it's well detailed. And the battle stuff was stirring, I particularly liked the parts about weilding a beam turret like a sword and Draco getting a couple of new suns. And you can create medals too?! Very nice! :D

I hope you can get a piece of the 2nd Hertak too, so more medals can be handed out. :)

And Admiral Ralwood, I thought yours was surprisingly touching. Really nice. Particularly the part about Susan never complaining about the Admiral.

Both posts had me smiling wide, I really enjoyed them.  :nod: :yes:
