You're confused. :lol:


Meh. Saw the black smoke part and assumed.

Also, Azazel seems fairly chill for someone who's Wrath. He'd probably fit something like madness more, but madness isn't a sin.

Whatever.

Wrath does not mean Rage.

If you want a good rp, read this shit.
Tiami is cool.
Nat: Night's always in some bizarre state somewhere between "intoxicated enough to kill a hair metal lead singer" and "annoying Mormon missionary sober".

Swith: It's because you're so awesome. God himself refreshes the screen before he types just to see if Nightkill has written anything while he was off somewhere else.

It's Nightkill. He's been there so long he rents out rooms to other people at a flat rate, but demands cash up front.

Well, yes, but Azazel doesn't even seem angry to me. As far as I can see, he's doing this for shits and giggles, not precisely malice (I don't know if that just made any sense, but whatever) or, and this is my point, rage.

Ah.

Well, I'll have to check up definitions then. :P.

Whatever. I was just saying. I don't mean to complain or anything.

Wrath =/= rage.

Wrath has always been - to me - some kind of cruel sadism.

Honestly, it could be better, but I personally feel it's damn fun and damn good as it is.

Ditto. I'm not saying it hurts the RP; I'm just saying it doesn't help. It's like masturbation, really. Sex would have been better, but at least you're having an orgasm.

Yeah.

On an unrelated note, I'm looking forward to arc 3 - and is metalbending an acceptable power?

Just curious.

RPs are best when they're player-acted and player-directed. The OP should, ideally, just be the producer and maybe the consulting director.

I've always thought it was an emotion.

But again, I wasn't really sure, this is my opinion, I'm not complaining, etc.

In theory, yes.

But, again, I'm not seeing a single problem with this. All of the players are occupied.

No, they definitely aren't. Have you seen player-acted and player-directed RPs? Go take a look over at F7, if you want that kind of thing.

Players are fucking stupid and you do not want them to be in charge of anything except their characters.

Yeeeaaahhh. All of them. :P.

And okay. I guess I'll check the definition sometime.

@Ende: But you do want to give them a great range of things they can influence to shape the world through the actions of their characters.

Occupied, yes. Important? Not necessarily. The story would be effectively unchanged if most of them simply vanished. Really, the only actually important character I can point to that isn't controlled by you or Night would be Ivy. None of the others are really at all meaningful.

I personally think that, while Olthar is right, the protagonism issue was worse back in EH1 so at least we've made progress. -Nods-
