A new addition just arrived in the family, so it's unlikely that I'll be able to post this week.

Day 3 since the 7/18 GM post. It's my understanding that Gryxxx is being retired and Byrke will be the replacement once approved, based on that all of the Rogues are posted for the week. Good Job!

I will be cleaning up the OOC thread after the next GM update. If there is anything you wish to retain, please take a look and archive for yourself.

There's also the push for us to be using Google Hangouts, I'll be checking profiles and sending PMs if I don't see a gmail email account listed.

Brykes Bio sucks... apologies. Still fleshing that out in between a new job teaching Math to middle schoolers!! Yip. In any case it's not anything I need to be in the tracker for since that part is always a work in progress. I welcome ideas and such truly if you have any input or care to share. Each of you are a stronger writer than I.

Hey Gryxxx - Good luck with teaching middle school kids!

For Bryke, interesting concept and could be a whole lot of fun to play. For Bios I like to write some stuff from the character's point of view - thoughts and words. I know I've reread Sorrenson's intro many times to go back to the original feel and concept I had for him. It's his thoughts that help me remember the most. So if I were you I'd include that in the bio.

One thing that came to mind is that Bryke has to have a will of iron to survive what he went though. One way you could show this when writing his posts is to have his inner thoughts be raw, and let the emotion flow in his internal dialogue. Yet when he speaks, he speaks deliberately and without showing the depth of the rage that he feels inside.

Another thing, why did he choose to live though all of that... Because at some point with a background like that, that's what it comes down to. Suicide by opposing gladiator would look attractive after a while. He chose to live, why? What keeps him going after the Dominator abuse and 'rejection' by the Forge?

Hope that helps.

Just a reminder, Gryxxx dropped all his gear. It should be gathered and checked or at least kept. He had a card with the teams money... a couple mill. On the ground. Please don't leave it, annnnd a naruni multitool that he planned to barter with Sorrenson. Some other things also, but do you know what a telemechanic can do with nanotech?!?! Think, Big Hero 6.

I have often wondered about this.

Does anyone know Holt in RL?

Being slow on posting is not his M.O. ... it was someone else's who's name has been replaced with another- fresh start so to speak. Gryxxx -> Bryke.

Seriously though. Much has been going on in RL around the world, does anyone know if he is ok?

I haven't talked to him in a while. Last I talked to him he was having some real life issues. Not sure if they're still a thing or not. We all miss a post here and there, I'm sure he'll pop up before to long.

Given the groups current rate of damage, 2 more rounds before the defenders can rush from the garage.

Im not sure how you did this but, this is an unusual case. Bryke and Gryxxx are actually the same player. While xp should be per the character, shouldn't the PPW be done per the player?

Bryke - 375xp | 0.67PPW | XP Per Post 93.8

There was a slight benefit to the Rogues' overall post rate by tracking the two characters separate because of the true length of the quad, and the date the old character was retired and the new one started.

Day 5 since the 9/28 GM post. Everyone has posted!

I think I am going to change the reminder schedule to day 2 and day 5. With the day 6 reminder, it meant that most GM posts were occurring on day 8 or 9.

Over the course of the quad, this decreases the number of possible GM posts from around 17 to somewhere between 13 and 15. With 14 weeks/GM posts as the basis to determine EP bonuses it becomes possible not to be able to achieve 15 posts in a combat heavy quad even though the player is dutifully posting once per GM post.

Everyone has voted in Consumer's poll. Based on the responses, it's either Kesslan or StarChief that need to vote. You may still change your vote if you like, the average right now is 8.6.
