24th-Jan-2009 10:03 am - In which we bear bad tidings
I haven't been around lately, and I'm sorry. I got sick just before Christmas, and whatever it was I caught had me laid out until after New Year's.

Then we ended up short-staffed where I work, and it's showing no signs of slowing down. All I want to do when I get home is eat supper, decompress for maybe an hour, and then go to bed. I don't have much time to spend online anymore; lately, I've been going days without being able to check e-mail, let alone run a scene.

When you add to that that we seem to have lost a third or more of our players, I just don't see any way this game can survive.

You are all terrific people, and have been wonderful to RP with. I only wish it could have gone on longer.

Again, I'm very sorry. Apparently, I need to not be working in order to run an online RPG. *sigh*

Real Rebecca Color

Is anyone out there?

Just thought I'd give this game a *poke* to make sure it was still alive. ~_^

I'm sorry if I've missed any posts; I'm up to my elbows in holiday preparations right now.

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season and a happy and prosperous new year!
18th-Nov-2008 08:46 am - LJ downtime November 18
"The long-awaited server move takes place this Tuesday, November 18, at 8:00 a.m. [Pacific Standard Time]. We're moving the site from servers based in San Francisco to the servers in our new data center in Montana. A massive data move like this takes a lot of heavy lifting, and to haul all that data from San Francisco to Montana, we have to take the site down, starting at 8:00 a.m. [Pacific Standard Time] on Tuesday morning. We don't think the move will take more than four hours, but there's always the possibility that it could take longer (the best laid plans and all).

During the downtime, nothing on LJ will be available—no posting, no Friends page, no LJ mail, nada. When we bring the site back up, we're going to ease into it rather than open up a floodgate of traffic. Posting might not be immediately available or the site could be slow to load for a while...."

Announcement here.

31st-Oct-2008 08:22 am - Rules amended
In order to clear up some confusion, I have amended the rules for this game. Specifically:

"13. All information contained in private threads, threads in which your PC is not present, or another character's thoughts, is not known by your character, unless he has used some means to divine that information. This must go through the GM. Do not act on OOC information."
(new information in italics)

I do not want to ban the posting of internal monologue, but players should understand that anything contained in it is not to be considered IC information.

If your character uses some means (supernatural or otherwise) to divine what another character is thinking, an appropriate roll should be made, and the results included in your post.
28th-Oct-2008 07:45 am - LJ downtime October 29-30
Just a heads-up; LJ is expecting some downtime on Wednesday, October 29:

"As you might know, LiveJournal still runs on the Six Apart servers. 6A is taking a little downtime for maintenance, which means so are we. You won't be able to access the site...8:30PM [October 29] to 12:30AM (October 30) [Pacific Standard Time]."

Please forgive me if there's a slow-down in my replies.
