  • Desertpuma: once the ship gets going, will she survive Ronin?
    July 22, 2017, 11:38:44 PM
  • Clare: And the madness begins. Will Ronin be able to survive Velocity?
    July 21, 2017, 10:09:03 AM
  • Scout: If I were to revive any of my old characters Pele would be the one, she was fun. But hell if  I know how I'd fill the time line gap.
    July 19, 2017, 08:42:17 PM
  • Scout: for example I remember Laurie and Velocity having a rivalry but not really the details of it or Laurie's relationship with any other crew members
    July 19, 2017, 08:40:54 PM
  • Scout: I have all my old character bios saved but I wish I also had pre-crash posts because my memory of them is so fuzzy
    July 19, 2017, 08:39:38 PM
  • Scout: History is good
    July 19, 2017, 08:38:55 PM
  • Clare: I'm a bad, bad girl
    July 19, 2017, 07:58:45 PM
  • Clare: Beth and Ian have history which is why I was thinking of dropping her in, given the situation between Ian and Abbey :D
    July 19, 2017, 07:58:39 PM
  • Scout: Plus confession: I'm scared of playing mechanics because I am very bad at both actual engineering and writing technobabble nonsense :D
    July 19, 2017, 03:58:00 PM
  • Scout: I guess Bri could be re-worked into a mechanic fairly easily, but I didn't get to play with her enough for her to come into her own so I don't really even remember where I was going with her at this point
    July 19, 2017, 03:57:20 PM
  • Scout: Mattie's just a gunhand
    July 19, 2017, 08:29:30 AM
  • Clare: I guess she could have retrained as a mechanic in the intervening years
    July 19, 2017, 07:35:13 AM
  • Clare: If the ship needed a geologist, throwing Beth into the mix could be amusing :D
    July 19, 2017, 07:32:38 AM
  • Velocity Grey-Lambert: Hopefully she won't drive everyone insane
    July 19, 2017, 07:31:58 AM
  • Desertpuma: also in need of a mechanic, another skill that is not Lin's strength but he can handle many basic repairs
    July 19, 2017, 12:53:37 AM
  • Desertpuma: In answer to your queries .. the only people on board Ronin that are posting are myself, Abbey and Ian. The ship is grounded and there was an intermittent message call sent out. Lin is a passable pilot but not much beyond the basics. So Velocity would be welcome
    July 19, 2017, 12:52:57 AM
  • Desertpuma: Good to see the site back up .. got an email notice of a couple of threads getting responses so I thought I would check in.
    July 19, 2017, 12:51:14 AM
  • Clare: Velocity has never forgiven the parrot, even though she can't normally remember it
    July 18, 2017, 07:49:47 PM
  • Scout: just zombie deer, and even those only in her nightmares
    July 18, 2017, 07:18:37 PM
  • Scout: ha ha yeah, no parrots for Mattie

We have been asked many times why we only allow a player to have one character per ship.  The answers:

  • It allows for a greater interaction between players
  • If a player goes MIA it doesn't leave such a big gap to fill

But since we still have players asking about it we thought we'd see what the general populace think.

There are some advantages to having more than one character on a ship, especially during slow periods and when player numbers are down.

 So feel free to vote here.  The poll will run for 10 days (unless all active players vote sooner or there is a clear winner early on :D)

If you have any suggestions or thoughts about this please feel free to comment.

Sorry got busy and forgot to remind people about the poll.  So I've left it open for 3 more days for people to cast their vote if they haven't already.

Sorry I have only been able to access the site from my phone for many mnths now I didn't even see that this had gone up I'm a failure as an admin. God!

In my personal opinion, I like our one character per ship rule that we have, however, I am not oppose dto people using their character accounts for like an NPC or two that is attached to their character. I.e. a child, a sibling, a parent, a cousin, any close relation really.

I also welcome like on board characters introducing NPC's for plot ideas, villians, enemies, friends. ETC. Like I am SUPER open to like letting other players like run a plot line either for their own character, or like a selected few characters and stuff like that.
