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.

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.

I'm not saying you take the reigns off and let them run wild. I'm just saying that everyone should be able to play their part and be an important part of the story.

Chekhov wrote:If you say in the first chapter that there is a rifle hanging on the wall, in the second or third chapter it absolutely must go off. If it's not going to be fired, it shouldn't be hanging there.

If none of the players really matter to the overall story, then there's no point in even making an RP. You might as well just write a novel.

That's what I always feel, but I'm going to just wrap up this arc so we can hopefully make a better Arc 3.

I don't have a problem with it, because if I'm going to be honest, I like your characters a lot more than anyone else's.

I agree. I'm not saying at all that what we have now is bad. On the contrary, I love it. I think EH is one of the best RPs I've ever been in. That does not, however, make it perfect and flawless, and there is always room for improvement.

Not the point of it though- in an rp, everyone should be involved and I've unfortunately ended up neglecting more than a few.

Izanagi is actually the single most important character in the entire rp.

He just doesn't give enough of a fuck to be in the plot. *nods* :p

Eh, but the complaining gets really annoying.

I'm only stating my opinion precisely because I care. I want this RP to be the best it can be, and if I simply sit back and not say anything, then that will never happen. Constructive criticism is a must for improving anything, and Night has frequently said on multiple occasions that we really don't give enough of it. I am simply trying to do my best to share what I think would help.

I approve of the constructive criticism provided it is just that. You've been doing fine in that regard.
