    I guess I’ll make it…

    BTW, Thwapling’s really busy and may not be on for a while.

    Ok, sorry I just wasn’t sure exactly how I would start something like that.

    Okay. Are @wingiby-iggiby and @melodyjoy still with us?

    GOSH.

    AFTER ALL THE PAINFUL WORLD-BUILDING/PLANNING/FIGURING-EVERYTHING-OUT (which I’m not very good at, considering I have panster leanings XD), THIS STORY IS NOT DYING, OKAY?

    YOU GUYS ARE NOT DISAPPEARING.

    WE ARE GOING TO WRITE THIS STORY, AND IT IS GOING TO BE AWESOME. 

    Understood?

    Good.

    At last, I have arrived! Okay, so sorry 😔

    So, I have like 2 weeks left of school. I’m almost done, then I can actually like think about this? Yes, okay. (Well just so you know though I’ll be out of town June 12-18) but outside of  that I can write.

    Throwing in my thoughts from the RP-ing thread (to not clutter it up more XD). I was just about to type first person would be great, but then I thought maybe 3rd would be better. It would help our readers to be able to follow along better since we have so many characters. I don’t really care tho.

    Starting it when they find out or on the Resillience? I personally would go with when they find out, but I’ll go with whatever you guys decide.

    Is it just the four of us then?

    Tata! Talk to you guys soon! MELODY

    @melodyjoy,

    Hey, welcome back (and we’ll miss you)! Thx for letting us know. 😉

    Yeah, that’s what I thought too, but I figured that we had decided to just write the RP first and after we’re finished see if we wanna pour the work in to make it into a book. Honestly, it’s a LOT of work to make it even remotely close to book-form. *glances at @mischievous-thwapling* I prefer writing in 3rd person, but I haven’t written very much in 1st person so that would be a cool new experience. *looks at @winter-rose and Thwapling* I’ll go with whatever you decide!

    Also, I think maybe it would depend on the character for the finding-out vs. boarding. For your characters and Vika, it’s probably better if they just find out. But for Aleck it’d probably be better if we picked up with him boarding. *shrugs*

    @joelle-stone

    Good point. First and Third perspectives  are both totally fine with me. I’ll go with whatever is decided. 😀

    Yes, let’s do a mix of both for the beginning.

    And then for my characters, should I write a beginning for Ryumon too?? He is the MC who we put in to get a perspective of the slavery aspects of things.

    @melody-joy @joelle-stone

    Third-person might be better just so things aren’t too confusing, but I was thinking of doing Sikya from 3rd and Osiris from 1st.

    One thing I’m confused about: are the players selected by the government to compete, or was there a championship to determine who goes to the games? Or does it vary from country to country?


    @melodyjoy

    should I write a beginning for Ryumon too??

    I think that would be good.

    @melodyjoy,

    What Rose said. Although, if the only reason you’re writing from Ryumon’s POV is ’cause we need an inside slave-thing, I think Aleck and one of Wing or Thwapling’s characters was gonna lose too. 😉

    @winter_rose

    Personally, I do not think that we should have more than one point of view… that would be confusing.

    Pros of First: easier to write characters emotions, feelings, and thoughts

    Pros of Third: better clarification

    @melody-joy

    Yeah, that makes sense.

    I’m fine with either PoV.

    @melodyjoy

    Heeey!!

    Yeah, I’m good with whatever we do for the POVs–I honestly don’t care XD Though, yes, third POV would definitely be less confusing when/if we turn this story into a book.

    *returns @joelle-stone’s glance* *nods vigorously* YES. Turning RPs into manuscripts that even remotely resemble books is so messy and difficult, lol.

    As for the finding-out, my characters (twins) would technically have to get in through illegal means (since there was some rule against two players being from the same country? IDR, but it was something like that), so their father (a person in government in their city) pulls some strings to get them both in. So it might work well for me if I start writing from when they find out, NOT boarding the ship.

    (And yes, one of my characters is going to lose too–though I can change that, if need be)


    @winter_rose

    One thing I’m confused about: are the players selected by the government to compete, or was there a championship to determine who goes to the games? Or does it vary from country to country?

    *is shocked I don’t remember* Hm…. Yeah, I really don’t recall. Sorry, lol!!

     

    Hopefully I responded to everything….
