Any plans on when it's going online, Bei?

I've actually been working on cleaning up updating the OP. Should be ready to go maybe tomorrow or even late tonight if I get home early. I can post what I have as a teaser if anyone cares.

Whatever works for you, honestly. I'll have a sizeable post ready by sunday-monday, maybe Saturday if I really push it.

Alright. Was thinking late February or early March would be the start date of the IC. Denver will be all you, and everyone else would have been pushed towards the edges of the state after Salida with hopefully some incentive to head back in towards Denver.

Would it be bad of me to ask if we can postpone the new thread for at least a week?

Tentative RP picture. I liked Grestin's but it could be cleaned up a bit. Open for suggestions.

Most importantly, "the THAW" should be in ALL CAPS, and should be less stretched out. As to the background, it doesn't have much to do with the title or theme, but it is appropriate for the RP.

Sounds good. My last post also pretty much summed everything up already though so it does fine as the closer for Matt n' friends.


Yeah, I agree Mizrad. The killing of a long time enemy of Gared and the joining of his uncle will be a good ending. Letting it ready to open a new chapter.

Also I am interested in joining No Mans Land The Thaw when it comes out.

Just to gather everyone back together and make sure everyone is ready? You are the OP so it's up to you but my suggestion would be get the OOC up and maybe the IC but wait for a week before people start posting in the IC. That would help with 1. All the people who are busy rn and can't post along with 2. garner more new characters from other nations that are interested.

Once again though it's up to you and I'm down for whatever, just my two cents.

Even if the OOC goes up soon, which is likely, the IC will be a bit after so that people can apply and get settled in. So probably late next week before the IC starts in earnest.

The theme will be the same as this one: a Survival Character RP with some zombie-like mutations running about.

I know, but like, what's the difference between this RP and the Thaw?

Oh. It's mainly just a reboot of sorts. Several key people disappeared so instead of merely scrapping the RP we're giving it a jump start with a slightly tweaked story and a chance for new blood to join in.

Ready to go. Had things IRL to take care of so I haven't posted it yet. Good for tonight (4-5 hours).

It's at least....

Roughly 24 paragraphs, barring any one-liners.

So...yeah. This is what happens when I have too much time to write.

Bei, hurry! Kill it with the new OOC before it multiplies exponentially!
I have my own Discord Server now. Check it out. Or don't. Or do if you don't plan on it.
