    Thanks!

    @everybody

    So, did we decide if either A or B or both die in the end? And do either of them turn good?

    @winter_rose,

    If I remember right, A dies and B repents. Or was it visa versa? *facepalm* Help, @melodyjoy! ;P

    If we’re going with A dies and B repents, one thought I or someone else had is that B’s son or daughter or someone he lost comes back? Like, they’re one of the game players maybe, and he finds out and that’s a factor in turning good.

    Is The Kid still a part of this? Does anyone remember him? @mischievous-thwapling , that may have been before your time. =P

    I have his character more fleshed out, and just want to make sure we’re still using him.

    @winter_rose @joelle-stone @melodyjoy @wingiby-iggiby (?? Perhaps I shouldn’t tag you?)

    Yeah, I don’t remember any mention of The Kid. Would anyone mind a quick recap of him? If not, I can search the thread until I find something…though that might be time consuming, lol.

    Basically The Kid is working for Mr. B to help get inside information about the Cullings. And because he looks almost exactly like A’s deceased son, A develops a protective bond with The Kid, and when The Kid betrays A, A is heartbroken.

    The Kid is a mysterious forth player. He somehow got into the Cullings illegally, and no one can really get him out of the games.

    @winter_rose,

    Ah, okay!! I joined after he was formulated and was a little confused with him. Thx for the clarification.

    And oh boy. I don’t think Aleck is going to like him at all.

    But if no one can get The Kid out, does he win something? Should we make one of our already created side-characters The Kid? Maybe he was supposed to win something, but even though he won and one of our contestants lost, the lost one wins and he loses? Trying to make nice connections here. 😀

    Welcome back! Is your profile picture a drawing of a certain dragon in a certain series? Did you draw it?

    That sounds good!

    Ember Onyx is the placeholder name I had down for him, he’s in the doc of all the characters under Aiphus’s entrants.

    Ah, I see, sounds good!! Once again, thx for pouring all that work into all those side-characters. 🙂

    So, umm hi!

    I’m a little lost as to what’s going on right now. Could I get a brief summary recap?

    And Joelle, I don’t really know much about A or B or anything, cuz I didn’t originally do much planning on them. I can look around.

    @melodyjoy,

    HELLO!!! Glad to have you back. 😀

    We haven’t really been doing much other than regrouping and making lists of stuff to do. 😛 And no prob about Andor and Mr. B. We’re all working on them. I was thinking that making a brief list of the plot might be useful… What do you think? (You too, @winter_rose, @wingiby-iggiby (do you still want to be tagged?) and @mischievous-thwapling!)

    @melodyjoy

    Okay, so I looked in my notes, and my google docs. I’m afraid I have nothing on most of this. I really only have a backstory for Andor (Neromiro Drake), and a “Mr. B’s Tragic Backstory” which was a google document link that was given by somebody. I don’t have anything on the Kid, or the further developments of Mr. B or A.

    Hmmmmmm…

    @joelle-stone

    Yeah, that sounds great!

    I dunno if this would be helpful, but here is a list of everything we’ve been developing for the last 8 months (I can’t decide if that amount of time has felt short, or long… 😛 )

    • Main Characters
    • Extra Characters
    • The Cullings (comprehensive guide, planet, ship)
    • The Games in the cullings (descriptions)
    • Branches of the Cullings (and correlating games as well as ways to incorporate them to go with the branches )
    • The Judges (high judges, individual game judges)
    • The Game builders (except I think we’re not really doing this… cuz it was too much like the Hunger Games? and I only have one, he’s supposed to be corrupt. Hetsu Shekuv (remember him? the guy who’s name sounded like a sneeze, lol :D)
    • Andor and Mr. B (and Kid?) stuff
    • Elite Unit (Jedi People)
    • Winners of the branches (I have a list, so if anyone wants to see that… I feel like there was some confusion)
    • Was it Joelle that was making a list of the countries and putting them into a map or something? Or was that someone else?

    @melodyjoy @joelle-stone

    A plot outline sounds good! Nothing super complicated, just something to tell us where we’re going to to help keep us on track… we’re definitely doing a roleplay, at least for now, right?

    A while ago I sort of made a map, but it’s outdated because it doesn’t have all of the planets.

    @winter_rose @melodyjoy @mischievous-thwapling,

    Will work on that list! We’ll probably have to tweak it a couple of times… 🙂
