this morning
cap, captain miss america
i have no email.

i don't think that is quite possible. but i got NO EMAIL.

mikey is away. actually, he is at my parents' house. i am going to go out there tonight and we will all have dinner and maybe watch a movie or something. mikey is observing an english class for homework.

rick, i keep forgetting to bring the things i want to mail you to work so i can take them to the post office. sorry!

so the concept for the LJRPG is getting more filled-out; i guess we're actually doing this thing. jen is right, we need to define a space. i also want to have an element of control over who plays; i don't want anyone who will take themselves too seriously, etc...so i think this is going to be a fictional secret society. open to people i know and recommended guests. if you need a little help with the concept, read phillip pullman's "the golden compass"--okay, it's a long book...but that's the sort of feeling i'm thinking of, only without the violence. yum.

i think kimiki is right, too, we may not need character descriptions. i really want this to be more dialogue-based.
oh, and the personality test would work this way: you would have to answer for your CHARACTER, not for you. i'm thinking of things similar to the questions in kimiki's inu-yasha quiz, like the one about what do you do when faced with danger? and then whenther you would stand and fight, call for help, run away, or whatever, would determine certain characteristics of your char.

but maybe we don't need that.

the thing about playing it this way is anybody can pretty much be whoever they want-- we can have gothic heroines, inventors (ahem,rick), dilletantes, poets, masons, skeptics, communists, whatever, and they can all co-exist happily. and theoretically if someone wants to be from another time, they can be a time-traveller a la HG wells. sound good?

so, here are is a poll about spaces. we can obviously "take excursions" and change the meeting-place from time to time, but for the beginning, would you like the society to meet

Poll #22263 LJRPG location?

where would you like the RPG to take place?

in an upper-class salon in a big city
in a pub/bar/etc
above a brothel
in an airship (zeppelin)
in an airship (flying boat)
in the library of a mysteeeerious castle
in an english-style garden
in a tea room/ tea house
in a library/office of a distinguished university
in a secret room within a crypt

or, submit your own

YAY! i made a poll! let's see if that works

I really like the flying boat idea ^_^ There can be crews and passengers and we can voyage where we want to. so cool! Like a cruise ship...only floating!

Just another thought about Nicole's statement that we don't need character descriptions. I think she's right. No one I know walks around with a little self summary and gets people to read it before they'll talk to people o_O

I think that if someone has a character with some complicated past they should write it down just for themselves so they don't forget.

we should put a limit on avatar size....bigger than the lj pics but still small enough to not be a pain in the ass. maybe 300X400 max? that's a useable size.

maybe instead of using LJ, we can use yahoo! groups. it lets you keep files right there and then people who aren't LJ members who we might want to play, like other KiSS artists or RL friends, can play and we don't have to worry about codes. also then people can make up yahoo! IDs just for the game if they want so they can have a little profile if they would like. and you can still do the whole "screening" process to let people in.

we can also have a short running plot summary so people who are new don't have to go back and read what has already happened.

what do people think? LJ or yahoo!?


we wouldn't really have to worry about codes anyway.

We just use one journal and share it...then if someone wants in, we give them the password.

I was just thinking of making an LJ community for it. You can make LJcommunities non-public, can't you?

yeah, that's what i was thinking of at first. i don't particularly like the idea of making a name with a password and giving it out to peopel who ask, because one person will decide to give it to a bunch of people who we may *not* want as part of it, and it becomes a lot harder to ban that one person. i was intending on making it an LJ community at first.

but then i started thinking, what if people who aren't part of LJ want to be part of our RPG? how do we deal with that?

maybe we just start the RPG and see how it goes. if we have problems, we can come up with a new solution later. all planning and not doing is no fun.

we need a good secret society name.

any suggestions?



I think I want to join. I'll try to help you find a name.
