    Do you guys know what I just realized? this stuff sounds like the Gamemakers from the Hunger Games… We have to be careful not to copy that.

    Ooofffff. **has nervous breakdown**  We can’t make it be the same, or people won’t think this is original… we could either completely eliminate this, or change the idea completely, I dunno. Any thoughts?


    @winter_rose

    Yeah, game programmer is fine 🙂

    Yeah, they’re definitely not manual labors. I’m sure people could be hired (and are) to do that kind of stuff). And game programmer is fine too.

    All those names sound great, too. We could even use those to branch off from Hunger Games stuff… except my overstuffed-with-Christmas-candy-brain can’t really think right now… LOL 😛

    and winter rose

    Great people making! (I kind of need to read them… but I’m sure you guys are amazing, as always, from what I saw too 😛

    I’ve never read the Hunger Games (and aren’t allowed to), so I have no clue. :/ Sorry! Erm… yup, can’t think of anything. Maybe we should just keep developing then go for it? Stories have a way of sweeping you off to unique places. 🙂

    Very true… Perhaps we should just go with that for now, then, if it still seems too similar, go back and figure it out later?

    @melodyjoy

    On the last page there was a list of few things we had to finish up.

    After that we could probably begin the roleplay on a new thread. Is everyone writing from first person? Because I had one character from third-person, but if she’s the only one I’ll just write from first person.

    @winter_rose,

    Actually, I find writing in first person harder than third person, so I’m going with third person. 🙂

    @joelle-stone @winter_rose @melodyjoy

    I’m fine either way. My current WIP is in first person, so if we do third person, I might be a little rusty at first, but I’ll try to smooth it out 😉

    @melodyjoy @mischievous-thwapling @winter_rose

    Y’all here?

    Here are the things we should do:

    1. Get a solid list of all the games (name, judge for it, what happens in it, and winner)
    2. Get a solid Andor (what’s his different name again?) & Mr. B (what’s his name?) biography
    3. Start RP-ing!

    @joelle-stone (thank you for reinitiating this.) @wingiby-iggiby @melodyjoy @mischievous-thwapling

    Should the characters inheriting the branch always win the game? Or could they lose and still get the branch?

    Maybe whichever of us in charge of the branch should decide who wins. Or everyone decides what place their characters win.

    There are some game options for the undecided games on page 35. Pick the ones we should use. Once those are confirmed we can choose an appropriate name.

    I’m pretty sure we have Andor’s backstory and the judges for each game somewhere on the Details Posting page, wherever that could be…

    A link to Mr. B’s backstory is also on page 35. Does anything need to be changed about it?

    I found like a billion names for Mr. B and Andor but I lost half a billion of them so here’s the remainder. Let me know if you guys think of any specific meaning you want associated with the name and I can try to find some with that meaning.

    Blamore, Brone, Brennus, Brioc, Bardrick, Bronach, Birne, Berrne, Borell, Balan, Balor, Bakarne, Baldovino (ok this one is kind of funny), Belial, Blade, Brioc, Briox, Belyle

    Andric, Andiron, Andrion, Andir, Ardir, Ardor(noun meaning passion), Ardence, Arden, Aldor, Alder, Amadeus, Amatus, Amias, Amato, Armas, Anders, Ander, Aeron

    @winter_rose,

    LOVE your new profile pic!

    1. I think if we have one or even two characters lose but still win, that would be awesome. 🙂
    2. Oh, we each have a branch? I didn’t know that, heh heh heh.
    3. I love your ideas for the Military and Legislative branch; we should definitely go with those! Scientific, Technology, TOU, and Diplomacy are all good, so that leaves Judicial and Medical to sort out. How about @melody-joy makes the final judgement for those since her characters win them?
    4. *facepalm* I may or may not have forgotten about that thread. *sheepish smile*
    5. I think we were just going to make a final biography that combined both of their backstories and mentioned what both of their roles are going to be. 🙂
    6. Thanks for your hard work on that! Here are my votes:
      1. Andor: (Personally I really like Andor) Arden and Andirion (yes yes, I know it wasn’t on the list)
      2. Mr. B: Briox and Balan

    Once again, thx for compiling!
