    Story Arcs

    I've noticed that we've gotten out of the habit of having story arcs in the main RPG. This kinda made it a lot more compelling playing it, knowing that a buildup of events led to a conclusion, and then a new arc would start. This doesn't mean that your characters are killed or something and then come back again: There is still an ongoing storyline, but it's in parts. I reckon we should have these back again. What do you think?

    Hmmm...

    While I like that, it would take a bit of coordination.

    Why not cycle in and out of an arc-free storyline and actual story arcs to keep it united?

    And whoever wants to can nominate themselves for presenting the new enemy force?

    I have some ideas for future story arcs, but it'll take some time to get there, and I have it planned out specifically.

    No offense, BBC, but you've displayed a tendency in the past to just assume that non-main characters are fine for killing. For instance: With the Shima Brothers, there will be a certain number of deaths. I won't say who, but you'll be surprised, yet not surprised all the same.

    If we can come to an agreement without divulging plot spoilers, I'd be willing to turn the events with the Shima Brothers into a sort of proto-Arc, to get everyone back into the feel of a united storyline.

    Would that be fine with everybody?

    I was thinking of the war with Uterio as a story arc. It was my plan to unite everyone. The final battle with him will end it, starting the full F-Klak story arc (the others have been foreshadowing this)...at least with my characters.

    Depends when Silent gets his freaking oversized head off his pillow and gets active again. He usually goes into a blind rage if we do something major in the RPG without his permisson.

    I think he was tired of you all being so inactive.

    Sadly enough, you all came back after he left. ^^

    It was a tough week. I'm sorry I wasn't so active.

    That's a great idea, we should do that.

    I've been stuck in Area 51 ever since the police found my death ray. I tried to use my mobile to go on here, but it's so crap it wouldn't let me log in.
