would you like me to create the thread?
@cpt_gearheart: Most people actually get their "sea legs" through a bit of interaction with other characters, but you can really do as you please. But if you choose to interact with more users before doing this, the I suggest talking to people on the "what does your character think of the person above them" thread :] By the way, feel free to ask me if you have any question that you have.
@mister_surreal: I also had that feeling, but I couldn't really find a place to knife into without mucking up other people's flow, I figure I could do both concurrently, though I'm sure messing around on the forums would come first. Thanks, I'll keep it in mind.
@rosso: There are other kinds? But yeah that would be great. Would there be any in character reason for them to fight? While my character is more space based, I don't think it's out of the realm for him to take jobs that are terran bound. So like a double bounty. Gearheart is after her bounty and Rosso is after his by TU ?
@cpt_gearheart: Yeah! I mean, it's literally limited almost only by your imagination [just within the bounds of the rules, which may be flexed depending on context and players]. Sometimes you just meet someone at a random locale, like in a bar or on the street or in spaceships or in a cave, or whatever! Sometimes you just have a normal conversation. Sometimes you go on an adventure. Sometimes different things mix!
Reasons to fight are pretty simple to come by too. I have a number of characters you could play with; although only a couple have been in space and one of them is uber powerful to the point there's no point. [The other, I'm not entirely sure if I'm gonna cannibalize the bio for parts and Frankenstein pieces for a new character.]
Thatsaid, if you want I could choose one of another alts and work out a premise, I could PM you, or if you've decided you really hate Val's face then the premise you've got is pretty solid for wanting her. [Quick question though, what's a "TU?"]
@rosso: So we could team up and fight someone/something else ? I figure battles where between two or more characters, that just purely fight, that's seems more like a story based rpg. Either one is fine really. Oh I wouldn't want to do that kinda thing for a noobie like me :D
Sorry, TU or Terra United is this paramilitary group that my character used to work for before he lead a rebellion against them. So they are one of his overarching foes and since your character is an assassin, it's totally feasible that they would hire her as a curve ball to take him out. CG is a gun for hire as well so taking on your bounty makes sense for him as well. Unless you really want to use another more fitting alt. It's all good.
@cpt_gearheart: Yes, it's possible we could team up and fight something/someone else. And it may or may not be a more story-based RP. But that's just me giving an example to try and illustrate how the scale of RPing goes way beyong "two people make up a reason and fight each other," so you don't spend a ton of time here thinking you're just supposed to hop from battle to battle to battle. But you'll probably get it as you jump in anyway.
If that's the case, I think the only thing left to figure out would be how these know the guy would be on Earth in order to hire an Earth-based assassin to get him. But you can make that up in your intro post if you already have an idea.
So I've noticed that you mentioned a type of RPG that is based around the concept of "two people make up a reason to fight and then do so". I would REALLY appreciate it if you could elaborate on this a bit further so I could make connections on myself and see if I base myself around that concept.
@theevolutionary: To be honest I'm not entirely sure what further elaboration it needs, but I'll try. If you want to battle someone, you and the other writer would fabricate a reason for your characters to fight. The characters then encounter each other in any of the in-character location threads, or a separate thread with its own title, set aside specifically for the RP, and they'll fight during the course of that RP.
