@lowlaville: I think Zafir is probably gonna be ok, he can right now sense everything exactly as it occurs and his elemental manipulation and alchemy are good enough to survive I think. Though some extra durability is always useful. But it's my troops that are getting killed lol, first Gaige now Vael is doing it. If you could somehow lessen that damage in any way that would be incredibly useful. As long as it doesn't free up contingency, you stalemating her has helped us a lot.

That's more or less what I have in mind. Vandal is extremely tanky and support type when he wants to be.

@lowlaville: Hey so am I!

Seems Vandal's trump is his debuff and regen while Contingency's is Precog and another ability she's yet to use.

Little bit of a summery:

•Got out of the ground and had to turn Vaels spear into a gas and redirect it, because it had gotten aimed at him, but due to the short time span still got damage to his ears due to the change in space.

•Got partially hit by Aren, and his forces lost communications presently.

•Officially assaulted the demons summoned by Vandal using ice, as well as more soldiers in the base.

•Generated an EMP directed at anything that wasn't his own forces.

I think that's all he did aside from decide he can't consider Vandal an ally unfortunately due to the demons, which were literally a huge part of the reason he was in this situation in the first place actually.

@maverick_6:
Well there went my chance. Knew it was over the moment I saw you post. They don't seem a huge threat to Zafir, but the army was already having enough trouble with Vael and what Gaige did to them. Now a ton of them are just screwed.

@kaija: We're gonna have to retreat in my next post. We lost, especially now that Zafir is against Vandal the only present heavy hitters on our side are you and me, while the enemy has at plenty. I can probably save some of the soldiers but I think this is over.

COE Response

@everyone

The COE -1 were called in because of a few issues with the RP. The primary issue with the RP is that it could very easily be classified as derailed by @lowlaville's space-time warping attack and sudden change in motivation, from aiding Zafir to combating him. A further issue was that Vandal King's bio was not easily accessible, and when read, it has only a sentence-long description of reality-warping power. To be clear, it is not the character's presence derailing the RP, but rather the use of this ability. While it is true that @contingency's high-tier abilities are what prompted Vandal King's upping of the ante, it is also clear that Contingency was not outside of her bounds in using these abilities. They were cleared to enter the RP and it seemed reasonable for them to do so given past character motivation. Vandal King, on the other hand, had little reason to be involved.

As far as official CVU rules go, @sir_barton suggested that they were being broken. That seems a little far; it'd be more accurate to say they were bent. The two relevant rules that have been infringed upon within the RP are:

CVU-Specific Rules, Rule 5:

  • Solutions to problems posted in RPs must take effort and make sense. Furthermore, opportunities for others to contest a character's actions must be given, particularly with regards to villains instigating conflict.

Basic RP Rule, Rule 1 Subpoint 2:

  • It is also important to consider narrative. In a large-scale narrative with a grand villain, they might not hit the floor in the first round so as to preserve the integrity of the story. So long as a post is well-written and works within the context of both the setting and narrative, one might waive the apparent act of no-selling so long as the attack is acknowledged.

The bending of these rules seems to be what has caused the most contention, along with the derailment of the story. Several writers expressed that with the inclusion of actions such as reality warping the entire setting of the RP without permission and healing another's wounds (a form of godmodding) without permission have detracted from enjoyment of the RP. It's eminently clear that locking the surrounding area in space time using a god tier character immensely derails the story and is a form of godmodding. In future RPs in this arc, such as subsequent France campaign actions, these actions and actions of similar magnitude absolutely cannot be taken.

As far as solutions for the current RP, the offending actions may be ignored by other users if they so choose. We're not asking that they be deleted or edited, or that the RP's canon be retconned. What we are asking is that in the future, these actions never happen in the first place. Finally, let it be known that ignoring another user's actions goes largely against the philosophy of the CVU. We instead desire to clearly inform users of when they break RP rules and / or norms, so that they might know what they've done wrong and can improve in the future.

To summarize: nothing is being changed in the RP, though users may ignore @lowlaville and @contingency's more "god-moddy" actions if they so choose. In the future, either different characters ought to be used, or they ought to be used with more restraint.

@lichter:

Hmm, I will most certainly need to pay attention so I don't end up making the same mistake. Although I did already do the healing thing which I was unaware counted as godmodding, so I'll have to make sure not to do that again.

@zafir_karim: It wasn't in reference as much to you, but rather someone else who got healed by Contingency. No worries AFAIK, it's between you and whoever got healed.

#237 Edited by Contingency (6996 posts) - - Show Bio

@lichter: Umm who did I heal?

I don't recall healing anyone at all, all I did was get hit by Vandal then have some of my powers (Infact my healing works via temporal manipulation so I couldn't have healed anyone because Vandal locked time manipulation out) canceled before cloaking Gaige.

@contingency: There was some contention over Contingency's appearance in the RP itself but I saw little issue with it. Anime bias, like we mentioned earlier. Random motivation, you know. Nothing has to change in the RP, as mentioned above.

@sir_barton: They'll be followed for subsequent RPs in this arc. This was a special case, as it began before the CVU was introduced and the author requested it be moved over IIRC. No harm in that.
