  1. [quote name='Sarah Tintagyl' timestamp='1327543489' post='2906988'] That CNRP is capable of not complaining that things don't go their way. [/quote] It's like you change the point you're making with every post.
  2. [quote name='Sarah Tintagyl' timestamp='1327526894' post='2906792'] Sal, my own idea on how one can deal with character death. In that hopes that after a character dies, people can move on and not quit the game because the character they made is gone. You might be right though, its probably asking for too much, huh?[/quote] I most certainly am right, but are you asking too much? I have no idea. What are you asking again?
  3. So what's all this about good writers killing their darlings?
  4. [quote name='Sarah Tintagyl' timestamp='1327477937' post='2906517'] I think the issue is, that can be summed up in reading your arguments, do you want interaction or no. Fiction is not a nice place for characters. For good stories characters die, nations collapse, and tragedy strikes. Everyone wants to RP their perfect nation, but what I see is a lot of people want to also war and fight other nations and expect them to just go along with the story, whether these be power players or newbies. This is what happens and this is how dynamic is created and the system in which players react. Yes, characters die, it is a shame that it happens, but if you are so bent up on losing a character that you can no longer write or function in the community. I'm not going to lie, it's kind of sad. :/ There is a phrase, that good writers learn to kill their darlings. Death makes a story richer and creates new possibilities for plots. But this is interactive. If you want the perfect nation and the perfect character, there is a market for that in novel and short-story writing and in this age of literature, no characters die, so everyone should be fine. [/quote] So you're saying that the current system, in which people can't have a perfect story, makes people better writers. The rules should be designed to make people better writers?
  5. [quote name='Markus Wilding' timestamp='1327332238' post='2905502'] I can't tell the difference between white land and Croatian colonies. [/quote] There are a lot of countries indistinguishable from white space.
  6. Ask yourselves, were those wars planned? Was a reasonable attempt made to plan them? If they weren't planned then the wars are in violation of HK47's new rule. If they were planned, then what was the plan? What was the agreed to outcome? Well, what happened? Ishabad rerolls twice in rapid succession in RA's protectorate. A minimal amount of RP is made and UFE annexes the whole protectorate to his protectorate. Doesn't sound like much of a planned RP does it? "You roll over and I take the protectorate."
  7. [quote name='Sands' timestamp='1326494070' post='2899061'] Freedom of speech is a personal right. He can say anything he wants. If he gets paid or published at all though its no longer personal, its business. Business is subject to copyright law. [/quote] Hmm, my point was more that this discussion is incredibly stupid.
  8. He is a GM, and also an ally [i]across rerolls[/i] of UFE/whatever-it's-called-now. I'm sure he is pretty cool, but without conflict of interest?
  9. [quote name='Sands' timestamp='1326327638' post='2897683'] If you are using his creative efforts in the story, and he does not want you to, he may have a right to complain. Other than just 1st Amendment rights. [/quote] Let the Supreme Court of the United States of America decide.
  10. [quote name='Generalissimo' timestamp='1326485755' post='2898999'] I also request arbitration from someone who isn’t Triyun citing conflict of interest. [/quote] Your only options are allies of Triyun.
  11. [quote name='Executive Minister' timestamp='1326175137' post='2896765'] I'm with Triyun, grow some balls and fight no matter what your odds are dammit! [/quote] Don't you mean you're against Triyun?
  12. [quote name='Fizzydog' timestamp='1326313288' post='2897517'] I thought Triyun was kidding. Is he actually upset about this? [/quote] Understandable. It's hard to believe that someone could be so ridiculous. Seems genuine though.
  13. That you got Triyun to whine about it wins my approval.
  14. [quote name='iKrolm' timestamp='1325806013' post='2893561'] Sal, that was uncalled for. [/quote] What was uncalled for? I bet you don't even know what I said.
  15. Make sure you don't alienate your friends, Shammy, or else you won't be able to get away with god-moding. Of course, seeing as Shammy seems to keep one ally across rerolls, I think you're pretty solid.
