Just got home. Brrrrr. I'll be back in ten or so. Absolutely chaotic today.

And now back. I'll drop an IC post in.

Torsii and Bran, is there anything particular you have in mind? My suggestion would be the tents rather than a ride. You can't do much with a ride other than basic reactions to it, but a tent would provide more of a chance to actually write something that adds depth. I've pointed Gio's character towards that group. I'm not sure of her connectivity woes, though, or if she'll be offline for a while.

Or, since Drova and Torii are "valentines", they could set off to do stuff? Yuna gets parked, and Marcus is parked/runs silent.

Do not remove this search tag: #PLAPP
Your NS Nation's Nickname: Crumb

Character Name: Oila Crumb

Character Gender: Female

Character Species (nation personification, human, alien, etc): Crumb. The Crumb species is similar to a human, although it has a specific appearance (hence all Crumbs look very similar) and completely lacks red blood cells. Other than that, it is basically a nation personification only.

Character Physical Description (height, weight, apparent age, actual age):
- Height: 5'8"
- Weight: 103 lbs
- Apparent age: 30
- Actual age: 23

URL to Character Picture, if any: Portrait
I use this image quite frequently, it is about the only image that represents the traits of a Crumb woman accurately.


Primary Skill or Power: Diplomacy skills, otherwise mundane

Power Weaknesses/Flaws: Can be interpreted as cold or lacking emotion

Secondary Skill or Power: N/A

Power Weaknesses/Flaws: N/A

Character Background/Biography: The descendant of oligarch Sulpalco Crumb, Oila was born into a well-off family in Crumb-Cashew. Oila spent her childhood searching for the meaning of life, which brought her into adulthood faster than it should have. She has a rather melancholic nature due to this, forever reminded of what was taken from her too soon. As an older child, she was noted for her exceptional diplomacy, which brought her to the Board of Culture as a junior diplomat. She has not seen her family since diplomatic status, and has travelled to Bielefeld on her on accord outside of diplomacy. As a full-blooded Crumb, Oila is particularly proud of her heritage and will stick with it until her demise.

Why the character is in Bielefeld/Occupation: Oila travelled to Bielefeld on her own accord, hoping to experience a new culture other than the Crumb-Cashew lifestyle. She is currently a diplomat working for the Board of Culture in Crumb-Cashew, and is a certified Regulator.

URL to Apartment Picture:Apartment

[b]Link to RP examples:
(this MUST be a DIRECT LINK to your IC post in an RP, NOT a link to the RP thread itself. If you don't have examples, make your biography good.) None (yet): after all, everyone must start somewhere.

IMPORTANT:
One paragraph that sums up your character. This paragraph is what we'll use on your player tab on the first page of the thread. This MUST be brief. Your tab will contain a link to your application so people will have full details: Oila Crumb is a 23-year-old diplomat from Crumb-Cashew, sporting the Crumb physical traits of large, dark eyes, a curved nose, olive skin, and a square jaw. Oila is noted for her highly philosophical nature and is devoted to her religion, Cipolle, the Crumb-Cashew faith. She has yet to see the more frivolous part of life. While she has a fondness for culture, conservatism, politics and onions, she particularly dislikes one lacking of punctuality, the color pink, and shallowness.

MENTOR NOTE ON DIALOG


I came across some old notes this morning and thought I'd share them here. It's from a workshop by Holly Lisle. I found a copy of it, and I present it here (with some tweaks for RP purposes). Credit goes to her.

The purpose of this is to help people write better when two of their own characters are speaking in the same post, but it works just as well as a reference source when two players are working on a collaborated post.


CONFLICT
Dialogue is about demonstrating character through conflict, either internal or external. Remember that, and your job becomes easier. Conflict isn’t always something bad that’s happening. It can be something as terrific as winning a million bucks in a lottery or falling in love or discovering your character is going to have a baby. However, conflict always portends change. And dialogue always gives you a window to see into the way that characters feel about that change, or at least the way they want each other to think they feel, which may not be the same thing.


WRITING DIALOG
Here are a few recommendations about writing convincing dialogue. None of them are cast in stone, but until you’re comfortable enough with the rules to know how to break them, you’ll work better if you keep them in mind.

  • Avoid phonetic spelling. Dialogue of the following sort—“Ah reckon ah don’ haff ta go dowan tuh th’ rivuh tuhday, ‘cawse we gots awl th’ feeush we gwine need”—gives the reader a headache and makes you look like a moron. With dialect, less is definitely more. “I reckon I don’t have t’ go down t’ the river today, ’cause we got all the fish we gonna need,” is much more readable and still suggests a particular character.

  • Keep to the conflict. If there is no conflict for the two characters in a piece of dialogue, then the dialogue has no place in your story. The conflict can be internal (he’s lying to her; she doesn’t like him; she's embarrassed by her friend's behavior, etc) or external (raptors are trying to eat them; an object has triggered a problem they need to solve). But it has to be there. Dialogue illuminates character faster than any amount of exposition, but only if you give your characters something interesting to talk about, and something that moves your story forward. And that means conflict.

  • Don’t let characters “speechify.” What worked in a Shakespeare monologue does not work in a dialogue between two people. Fictional dialogue is about give and take, meant to sound realistic but sharpened by the fact that each character needs something, and by the fact that their needs do not mesh. You won’t get two-page speeches if you remember this.

    A note on that: I fall into this trap, usually when responding to a long post.

  • Remember that people breathe while speaking. Read your dialogue out loud, in your normal, conversational tone of voice. If you run out of air part of the way through a sentence, rework it. Add punctuation, break it up, rip out the flowery stuff.

  • Avoid “talking heads.” Have characters do something while they speak.


THREE KINDS OF DIALOG
Swith's rule on orphaned dialog is simple: I don't read the post. Your dialog is bad and you should feel bad. *winks* It's monotonous to read something where we have to keep track of who spoke first. The writer has an idea of emotional response, but they don't weave it in. RP is not script-writing, either.


SCRIPT WRITING

    LISA: [enters from stage right] Jesus, you startled me. I wasn’t expecting you here.

    JOHN: It’s been a real day for expectations. Where were you? I’ve been waiting here for an hour. You didn’t leave a note or—

    LISA: [cross to stage left] I wasn’t planning on going anywhere—

    JOHN: I can see that. Where’s your coat?


ORPHANED DIALOG
This is the schmutz that kills posts and paints the writer as unimaginative. If someone were to ask me to judge a post on quality for a contest, orphan dialog would have the post disqualified as the puerile garbage that it is.

    "Jesus, you startled me. I wasn’t expecting you here," Lisa said.

    "It’s been a real day for expectations. Where were you? I’ve been waiting here for an hour. You didn’t leave a note or—," John said.

    "I wasn’t planning on going anywhere—"

    "I can see that. Where’s your coat?"

    "I left the house in a hurry. I… um… my mother…"

    "The hospital reached you? God, I’m sorry. That’s why—"

    "The hospital?"

    "They called me when they couldn’t get you."

    "I don’t understand."

    "Your mother. You said —"

    "I ran out to buy some flowers for her. She’s been so down."

    "For three hours you’ve been buying flowers?"

    "And then I drove around. I’ve had… a lot on my mind. But I’m fine now. Fine."

    "You didn’t go by the hospital?"

    "No. Look, I’m freezing. Let’s go inside. Why did the hospital call? Does the doctor need my signature for more tests?"

    "We have to go to the hospital."

    "I’ve had a terrible—"

    "We have to go to the hospital. Now. The rest of your family is already there."

    "Oh. Oh, God. Mom’s all right, isn’t she? Oh, Christ, she isn’t. I’m being punished… she’s dead."

Did you read all of that? I'd wager the answer is "no".


EMBODIED DIALOG
This is what fleshes out the scene. It allows you to create conflicts which the characters then play off of as the conversation progresses. (When crafting posts

    Lisa had just gotten out of the car and was heading around the corner of the garage when she ran into Brian. “Jesus, you startled me. I wasn’t expecting you here.” His face looked sort of pale and pinched. He’s found out, she thought. I finally broke it off, but I was too late.

    He said, “It’s been a real day for expectations. Where were you? I’ve been waiting here for an hour. You didn’t leave a note or—“

    “I wasn’t planning on going anywhere—” Which sounded like bullshit when she said it, and she knew it. She was wearing a navy dress with a fitted waist and a low neckline, which had been a gift from Kevin. Heels. Hose. Make-up. The last time Brian had seen her in make-up when they weren’t on their way to church or a restaurant had been right after the second baby was born. Eight years ago? Yeah. About that.

    He raised an eyebrow. “I can see that.” Pure sarcasm. For a moment his face lost the pinched look, and she saw suspicion in his eyes. “Where’s your coat?”

    “I left the house in a hurry. I… um… my mother …”

    The pinched look was back around his eyes, and she stopped, suddenly frightened. He knew she hadn’t been visiting her mother in the hospital. Maybe he’d hired a detective to follow her. The sound of her heart pounding roared in her ears. If he really knew, she would lose everything. The boys. Brian. Her home. Her friends.

    But he was saying, “The hospital reached you? God, I’m sorry. That’s why—“

    Now the scared feeling was worse. Different. But worse. “The hospital?”

    “They called me when they couldn’t get you.”

    “I don’t understand.”

    “Your mother. You said —“

    The lie came easily, easier than the lies that had preceded it over the last three months, pouring out of her mouth without any effort on her part. She shivered and rubbed her arms and said, “I ran out to buy some flowers for her. She’s been so down.” Breast cancer and a modified mastectomy at fifty-eight. Mom was in the hospital doing chemo, and she was coming through it like a trooper, but she really had been down. Not that Lisa had done much to cheer her up. She’d had her mind on… other things. No more of that, though.

    The suspicion was back in his eyes. “For three hours you’ve been buying flowers?”

    “And then I drove around. I’ve had… a lot on my mind. But I’m fine now. Fine.”

    He looked a little sick. “You didn’t go by the hospital?”

    “No.” She’d been saving that for when she could look her mother in the eye again. No, mom, I’m not cheating on my husband. I’m not cheating on my family. I’m a good wife. A good mother. Now she could do that. “Look, I’m freezing. Let’s go inside. Why did the hospital call? Does the doctor need to talk to me about more tests?”

    He was shaking his head—no, no, no—and his eyes were as bleak as the day. “We have to go to the hospital.”

    Her mother was being demanding again. She couldn’t face that right now. Not after the scene with Kevin. That had been ugly. Ugly. Never again, she promised herself. “I’ve had a terrible—“

    He cut her off. “We have to go to the hospital. Now. The rest of your family is already there.”

    Everything shifted. He hadn’t come home because he knew about the affair. He hadn’t come home because the hospital had been trying to reach her about another of her mother’s demanding snits. Everything she did to make things right, she had done too late. “Oh. Oh, God. Mom’s all right, isn’t she?” But the look on his face told her what she already knew. “Oh, Christ, she isn’t. I’m being punished… she’s dead.”



BONUS MENTOR NOTE IS BONUS

REPEATED WORDS ARE REPEATED
Proof a post before submitting it. How many times do you use the same word to describe the same action? Try to not use the same verb twice in the same short post. The shorter the post, the more the repeated words stick out. They become fodder for the "drinking game".

BAD
    Max ran to the store. He bought a power cable. Then he ran back home and ran up the stairs. He ran to his laptop to see if it was running.

GOOD
    Max hurried to the store and purchased a new power cable for his laptop. Once home, he took the stairs two at a time, hoping the battery hadn't died on his laptop while he was gone.

You're welcome. You did a damn good job on that long two-character post a week back. I was especially proud of the way you broke away from Fvaar's character to get business done, but wove your character right back into the scene afterwards. It was pretty seamless and flowed nicely.

Superbia!! :D

An amateur monk / priestess meets... terrifying thing that spooks me. Sounds like the start to a really weird, rambling joke. Anyways, shall I have her wander about in search of someone to talk to or will you have him run into her where she stands?

If you use the term SJW or 'politically correct' to describe anyone left of center, I'm pretty sure that destroys all of your credibility as an intelligent human being. Quit being a twit and use something other than a buzzword to make your point.

A quick note:
Her diplomacy skills would fall under primary/secondary skills. Also, is a Crumb a human? If not, could you describe them a bit, please?

Bear in mind that many characters in PL have some sort of supernatural or supra-human ability. We tend to see high drop out rates for players running mundane characters due to the setting.

Also, before I forget, the apartment picture should be the interior of an apartment.

We ask that pictures are linked, rather than embedded, in order to avoid copyright angst or the occasional goatse. Please don't use spoilers in your app. You can link a picture by using this code:
Code: Select all
[url]Picture link here[/url]


The OP is working heavy hours this week. I'll let him know about your app once you've fleshed it out a bit more. :)

TY GT.

It's mostly just getting into a rhythm. I honestly am rusty. I bowed out of RPing last year (obviously, going by my posts here) and I'm going through all my old writing notes to up my game.
