      Okay, thanks for understanding my little tangent.

      No problem, I actually had quite a bit of fun with them. 🙂

        Wow… You must’ve put so much work into those! TYSM!

        So… rereading this, I noticed a few mix-ups. I thought Allor was winning Scientific, not Diplomatic, though I’m fine if he does win the latter instead. 🙂

        And one losing character was missed… Allor’s twin sister, Wren. (One of mine) If that’s too many characters, I suppose I can cut her 🙂

          No problem: I quite enjoyed it really. 😉

          According to the most recent check Allor is winning Scientific… There’s a lot of stray data floating around out there so I’m not surprised it got mixed up.

          And btw, I really like your new signature.

            @mischievous-thwapling,

            LOVE the new quote! It’s funny with a tinge of realism. 🙂

            Ooh, IDK! I think Allor was supposed to win Scientific, but things probably got mixed up. I’ll go back and look. 🙂

            Yay, another loser character! Sheesh, that sounds SO bad, lol. 😛 Sry we overlooked her.

            Making something beautiful in a broken world can be harrowing work. And it can’t be done alone.

              @mischievous-thwapling,

              Yep, you were right? According to one of the first lists, Allor wins Scientific and Nori wins Diplomatic. 🙂 Good catch!

                Thx! I also find it funny but also with that realistic reminder, too. It’s quite comforting 🙂

                Lol XD I know! When we were talking about our “loser” characters, I always felt guilty referring to them as that. It’s totally fine! I get way more mixed-up. 😛

                Thanks! I’d feel guilty if I hadn’t caught it.. Allor being my character and all… XD

                      @joelle-stone

                      I think we were going to figure out who loses what games. We could just do that as we write the roleplay. Though it might be a good idea to have an idea of who wins and loses and when.

                        Gathering from the last 5 pages if random lists, this is what I think we should do:

                        1. Make a solidified, hopefully unchanging, list of the games and what exactly they are.

                        2. Make sure we have a solidified, hopefully unchanging 😛 , Andor and Mr. B (let’s get a name for him) biography, and how both of them fit into the plot together.

                        3. Solidify random character stuff (Rose, you mentioned something about that just now 😛 ) We have tons of our extra characters recently posted on  previous pages, so I think that’s pretty good for extras.

                        4, Oh, just thought of something. Game builders (refer back to my second post down on page 33) and Joelle, did we ever work that question out that’s on that post?

                        That’s all I can think of for now! bye!

                          No, I don’t think we did anything else with game builders. I can work on them if you’d like! 🙂

                          Ooh, and thx for the list. I’ll being working on some of those. 🙂

                            I made up a game builder. In the doc you’ll find is description/backstory, an the idea that maybe Andor forces the coders to do his will.

                              Excellent builder! He might help Menace64 out too… 🙂

                              @everyone,

                              Posting my builder now… 🙂 How many do we need?

                              @joelle-stone

                                Joelle’s Builder:

                                Name: Bryony Jindottir

                                Age: 23

                                Physical Description: Long silvery hair  to her calves (she’s from another planet, explaining her hair and other odd features), large purple eyes, strong features. She’s always been considered a beauty by her own people, and spent a long time picking her husband, Mattheer, out of her suitors. She’s a warrior, both with her mind and her limbs.

                                Strongest Virtue & Vice: Kindness & grudge-holding

                                Reason for Building: When Bryony entered the Cullings and failed to win, the judges considered it a waste to sell her into slavery. So instead they recruited her as a builder, and she hasn’t changed jobs since. The pay is good, plus she gets to not only build the games, but try most of them out as well to make sure everything works properly.

                                Backstory: Bryony grew up on the small planet of Hivron, in the system of Kallia. She was always told by everyone – her parents, siblings, friends, etc. – that she could do great things if she put her mind to it. So she did. And she succeeded.

                                Making something beautiful in a broken world can be harrowing work. And it can’t be done alone.

                                  Thanks! I really like your builder too.

                                  We should probably just do like four or something.

                                  I realize that my builder is more of a game programmer, hopefully that doesn’t cause any trouble.

                                  All these builders aren’t just manual laborers, right? They’re more architects and supervisors?

                                  They should each have a title, like Head of Game Programming, or President/Vice President of Cullings Construction, or Prime Game Mechanic, or Secretary of Material Importation.
