RP post and info [Feb. 15th, 2007|02:34 pm]
Gate Collision OOC

I posted Riza Holtzmann's arrival, and put it in her journal as it's not really a post that could fall into an RP scene. If anyone else has ideas for it, I'm game, but it's good as it is too.

I also dug some information up; if your character's from Germany, then undoubtedly they're aware of the rumors and legends surrounding the Harz Mountains. The Brothers Grimm, anyone? I thought it might be of some degree of interest. ^_^

Season of the Witch: Walpurgisnacht in Germany's Harz Mountains
Wandering through Germany's Harz Mountains, it's impossible not to realize that you have entered a domain of enchantment, a place where landscape conspires with legend to create a sense of lurking mystery. A terrain of craggy peaks, gloomy forests, and river valleys banked by towering cliffs, the mountains remember folk beliefs dating from pre-Christian times.

Straddling the former border between East and West Germany, they are steeped in tales of witchcraft, magic, and apparitions. Stories collected in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries show that the region's mythic reputation reached beyond Germany. From France to Scandinavia, countryfolk traded fireside yarns of strange happenings on the Brockenberg (Brocken Mountain), the Harz's highest peak at 3,747 feet. Rumor had it that Europe's witches gathered there on Walpurgisnacht, May Eve.

From the Harz mountains to Neuharlingersiel - an armchair tour through Lower Saxony
From the old principality of Schaumburg-Lippe, via Hamelin of Pied Piper fame, the hilly country of the Weserbergland extends as far as the town of Hannoversch Münden. The legends and stories surrounding the Weser, this fairy-tale German river, were recorded by the Brothers Grimm in Göttingen.

The stories in the Harz - Lower Saxony's mountain range whose silver mines formerly bestowed abundant wealth - are, however, about witches. Where German emperors once built an imperial palace, it is now half-timbered towns and enchanting woods that attract the tourists.

I'm excited to see things begun! Works abit hectic this week, so I probably won't be around until the weekend, but I look forward to playing with everyone. And sometimes my brain goes on vacation without permission, so if I goof up on my details, please don't feel afraid to point it out to me!

Oh and bgen_r_mustang I wanted to talk to you about our mutual characters. So let me know how I can contact you :)

As I did with canon!Riza, I made a profile more in-depth than the one I submitted and posted it for alter!Riza.

A question that relates to the Alters [Feb. 13th, 2007|12:56 pm]
Gate Collision OOC

So with the worldmesh going on, and some of the buildings from Earth showing up on Amestris as well, I leave it to the GMs.

Are characters allowed to retain or relocate, within reason that is, their possessions that they had on Earth? For example, this particular character is a bit of a bibliophile, I'm learning. Not only does she highly cherish her late grandmother's grimiore, but while working on her profile, she's informed me she has some rare first-run editions of some banned or highly controversial novels (one such prize possession is Kate Chopin's The Awakening, and she also has a few of Gustave Flaubert's novels, including Madame Bovary) and she wants to keep them.

I'd be fine with throwing her out into the game with only the clothes on her back -- I've done it to characters before and I will again. :D But I don't want to overly angstify her outside of reason, so it's up to the GMs.

I'm posting this here because there's other alter characters and things like this might be a question for them too.

[Current Music |Stevie Nicks - Trouble in Shangri-La]

I put together a profile a bit more in-depth than the one I submitted to CC, including an RP writing sample (which I kinda skipped before since she already knows full well what degree of quality I'll give her) mainly for my own reference to help flesh her out more.


I'll be working on a post like this for kuchehexe as well.

And here, have a song that was constantly stuck in my head for the writing scene, from post-movie!Riza's view in regard to Roy, made all the more perfectly appropriate by the fact that the legend of Shangri-La is based on Shamballa itself.

Guide to Scenery [Feb. 8th, 2007|02:37 am]
Gate Collision OOC
[Tags|, ]

I promise I'll stop spamming the comm eventually. But for right now I've still got something else!

Scenery! Now, while the whole world is involved and you are free to go to and fro as you please, we thought it would make things so much simplier if there was a "focal point" in our demolished little world. And this focal point would, of course, be the Munich area act surprised. Anyway, it's where a lot of movie-canon events happened, and where the storyline shall continue to happen ;D In the LJ cut below there are descriptions of certain locations, but these are hardly all of them your characters are allowed to be in. This is mostly a guide to help you out if you are unsure where to place things, or to give you a general idea.

Here and there, out and about...Collapse )

World... mesh... 'kay?Collapse )

So... hopefully that wasn't confusing, or made you raise eyebrows, or anything XD Again, it's something to help you out. Any additions you'd like to see are more than welcome to be suggested. As are questions, any other comments, or lemurs. I also need to stop deciding to start these at stupid o'clock.

Roleplaying Cogs [Feb. 6th, 2007|01:33 am]
Gate Collision OOC
Hey again, all. Since all RPs have a different way of working, I thought I'd finally announce what sort of workings around here Cait and I agreed on.

The Communities/Journals
So you both have a journal and a community to post at. Where should you post your thread?

The main community will be for major events, or threads that are open to everybody; scenes that take place in public areas, that way if your character is around, they can wander in if they please. Anything that effects the entire RP as a whole IGly will be posted here. Think the Nexus without the questions, if you're familiar with that setting.

Personal journals will be for more private threads; scenes with maybe one or two other people, or a thread that isn't open for just anyone to pop in should it effect plots and the such.

If you want to post a major/gamewide thread in your personal journal, that's perfectly fine-- we're not asking to be totally OCD with our organization here. It's just something to help out a little.

First off, there will be no journal system in this RP. It just wouldn't work. This world doesn't have that sort of technology for computers and we're not about to make up some silly reason why. If you want your character to meet people, try throwing your characters into a public thread.

Our preferred method of storytelling is prose in third person. Knowing a few of you (as this post was made), I know you already do that. But just clearing that up.

Interaction and Communication
We're small, which means it'll be easier for everyone to get to know each other better. We have a mun contact list here (which by the way, if you haven't posted to yet, we'd really appreciate it if you did), in case you need to talk to someone.

Do you have an idea you want to play out with someone? Ask them! We're all a friendly bunch, so don't worry. If a certain idea doesn't work out, ask them if they'd be willing to bounce it back and forth until something does work. Or if you just want to throw two characters together and see what happens? Again, ask! OOC communication is the key.

Posting up an open thread and labeling it as such, then see if anyone is willing to jump in works as well. Everyone is willing to get some RPing going, so don't hesitate at all to do that.

That's all for tonight though I'm pretty sure I forgot something. Any questions, comments, suggestions or food fights are encouraged.
