Alright, profile should be done. Also I mighta glitched something out cuz every below my post is now bolded lol.
 
As for combat, I'm not sure. Are we going to have shorter or longer combat posts? Discord is good for short, fast-paced stuff, but in long fights with long posts, it gets really clunky.


First of all, God Damn it cat.

As far as length of posts go, i do believe they'll be on the longer side. But that might not be true for every post.

Ooh, that's a good point. When I suggested having combat primarily in Discord, I was mostly thinking of the more routine shadow fights that, after, like, four or five, I would be hard-pressed to write one hundred words without writing myself to sleep. But big, climactic fights should probably be in the IC thread.


I think the only time you guys will have large numbers of shadow encounters will be towards the end game. Early on you'll be engaging most shadows for the first time so their weaknesses and abilities won't be established.

This could, in turn, affect the length of the fight.

Can I vote for a middle ground between the two? The main flow of the combat should be done in Discord because from what I see so far, in-IC combat flow is pretty horrendous especially for RPs sticking closely to gameplay mechanics.

 

However, what's done on Discord should really just be the general flow (X attacks shadow A, take damage and whatnot, shadow A attacks or something like that), while the actual posts should be written individually as to not heavily require collab-level of attention during combat situations.

Hm, putting it in practice with the current combat model is definitely pretty hard, though I am sure that if the actual core of the actions done on the battle itself is done through Discord, it'd be smoother.

 

Say we have 3 players, and the host. They're facing like 1 shadow boss or something.

 

A B and C with A being the fastest. For convenience's sake the shadow goes last.

 

If combat is done fully in IC, A will post, then the next one to post has to be B, then C finally can post, before the host post with the shadow's action, rinse and repeat. It's in a way like usual RP combat, but it ends up being a lot more rigid.

 

If done on discord/skype like a pseudo-collab, it'd be quite awkward to post, although it's not as bad as the above. Relying on people being around to write short passages should be better.

 

The third option is to do the barebones flow of combat in discord/skype. So we'd have a chat where A states that he's going to do X, then B does Y, C does Z, then the host can calculate and mention the impacts of their actions before mentioning the enemy's action. From those barebones information, people then can build a post from there, and even if someone ended up being missing, their action can immediately be mentioned without it feeling like powerplay/premature puppeteering.

 

It''s not ideal but that's what I'm thinking.

This is what I was already doing.  The difference is I was marking turn count and using speed stat to determine who would post before one another.  My posts will always address each individual player's actions.  That won't be an issue.

Err, not that. I think. My suggestion was more about the structure of what is done in discord rather than the structure of each turns.

 

How should I say it...

 

Alright, so let's say the party encounters a shadow with a speed of 7, while the party has 8, 10, and 6 Speed/Agi.

 

So we make a short session in discord first for each whole turns, consisting on like.

 

-Player with 10 Speed say he's going to do this this and this

-Host mentions the effect of his action

-Player with 8 speed mentions his actions

-Repeat step 2

-Host moves the shadow to attack, mentions the effects of the action

-Player with 6 speed mentions his actions

 

Something barebones like that is what I mean to serve as what I think needs to be done in discord. Basically it's like doing the encounter before actually writing it into the IC.

Hmm.  I would have no qualms with this.  It seems players are either undecided or divided 50/50, so I think this would be a fine way to host any battles that are not boss battles.  

 

 

Attention players.  I've come up with a set deadline for application submission.

 

All players interested must have their apps completed and submitted no later than January 8, 2018.

 

This means W.I.P. apps will no longer be accepted after January 8, 2018.  As of this Saturday, December 30, 2017, applicants will have slightly more than one week to submit their applications completed in full.  Please adhere to the deadline if you intend to participate in the RP.

Alright, finally finished my app. Since white-texting is so hard now that the edgy theme exists, just note that anything underneath a line inside of a spoiler tag would be spoilers regarding her actual self.

 

Oh yeah, persona identity is concealed for several reasons but i hope it's obvious enough.

Per discussion with my co-host, application due dates have been moved to this Saturday, January 6, 2018.  All W.I.P. applications must be submitted by this Saturday.  As of January 7, 2018, applications will no longer be accepted.  In addition, one additional player will be allowed into the RP total eight players (which will include me).  Furthermore, Player Persona stats will be increased by 5 points to be allocated as the player deems so.  The OP will be adjusted to reflect these changes.
