Title: The Eye Closes: OOC Thread
Post by: Soul Reaver on March 21, 2021, 08:57:37 PM
This is a chance for us to regroup, breathe, and plan what to do next.

This thread doesn't really have an official Battle Host for now, but I do want to keep it mainly to wrap up the current story - try not to launch into something new and epic until we've found our footing and decided where we're going from here.  Once we know what we're doing next, I'll likely assign a new host to it.

Kitharsis, do get in touch and let me know how you'd like to proceed with your character since he was going pretty bananas in a meaningful way in the last post.

Yes thats quite a doozy to deal with.  I need to work through some thoughts.  I'll let you know when I have some ideas.

Hello team, please note that Danyael has not responded to several of my emails and I have no other means to contact him.
As such, I have god-modded his character to remove him from the battle, while still giving him a means to rejoin later if he so chooses.

I don't know enough about his character's backstory to really do this justice so I've left it purposefully somewhat vague, but I've done the best I can.

Odd. The last message I saw was November... 2019. Care to explain? In PM?

Good to see you're back - have PMed you now.

Edit: note that as Danyael has confirmed he's still around (and nobody else has posted in response to it yet) I've removed the god-mod post for now.

Edit 2: Haven't heard back yet, so have sent a follow-up PM.

Final call for Danyael - I've sent 3 emails and 2 PMs but haven't heard back yet .  One of my goals is to make sure posting happens more often and this is now holding everyone up.

I'm about to send one more email and one more PM.  If I don't hear back in the next 3 days I will assume he's no longer interested and proceed accordingly.

Ok, Danyael's with us too.  Got to make a couple of edits, but I think that tells us who's here and who isn't.

Everyone who hasn't yet:
- Please post in The Eye Closes thread http://administorum.com/index.php?topic=630.0
- Please visit http://administorum.com/index.php?topic=632.0 to give your feedback re: what we're doing next.  Especially if you're interested in hosting a battle, we haven't settled on the next battle host yet.
- Please vote in the Champion poll at http://administorum.com/index.php?topic=633

Update:
1. Next full BB will be hosted by Jharm.  Hallelujah!
2. The Eye Closes will (kinda) be hosted by Kitharsis - he's got a lot of unresolved stuff to wrap up and future adventures to set up!
3. There are two people who need to post in the champion thread:
- One person voted but didn't post.  Please post and let us know why you voted Gulgrim!
- Cameron (as he has the last vote)
4. If you want to join, now's a good time to get in touch so we can work your character back into the story.  Post here if interested or PM me!

Kitharsis has immediately attacked the Krooza after exiting the Warp.  Brace yourselves!

He is thoroughly intent on destruction.

Ah, crap. I was hoping to take care of Cameron's exit before this kicked off. No matter. I can wait to deal with him until it's over.

Cameron will not be participating in this Epilogue. I will make a single post to remove the Allied Imperial forces from harms way. Soul Reaver, I am leaving Jihon and his Triton in your capable hands. Please keep him in one piece. I need him back when you're done.

Hey Kith, we're waiting on your post.  I think everyone else that is going to already has.
(I might post something for Jihon but I'm doing a lot of background reading for that when I have the time, so don't wait up).

Sorry for the delay. I was unplugged a bit for a vacation. I should have something up by the end of the day Monday.

Danyael is being assaulted by a giant bone hand. 

Soul Reaver, Jharm and Gulgrim are being directly attacked by a large bone golem that looks similar to Kitharsis himself.  This is a rather serious threat.  Defend yourselves appropriately. 

Also, I am rather rusty with writing.  Sorry for the lack of quality.  These creative muscles haven't been used too much lately.

I've posted for Jihon.  I know this took a while, but before posting I read up on a LOT of stuff related to Salt in the Wound.  I've had to do quite some thinking on how to fit in his reappearance but I think I have some ideas.

I'll post something for Soul Reaver later.  That one should be easier to write.

Jharm comes up against a big bone golem and be all like:

Kitharsis, just another reminder that we're waiting on your post.
If none is forthcoming I will need to god-mod your character to keep things moving.

Ack! I was waiting for Danyael to get his post in. Then had a baby.

Iíll get something up. Sorry for the delay.

This is unacceptable, we cannot be having such minor things distracting us from what is truly important.
(Congratulations Kith - I know how much work it can be!  Good luck!)

Very sorry for the delay!

Everyone inside the Krooza except Danyael now have three smaller golems to deal with.  Do be careful!

Post by: Soul Reaver on October 06, 2021, 08:39:41 PM
Thanks Kith!

Soul Reaver's spell is designed to test how effective acid is against the golems.

A post for Jihon will come later.

Ok, this is a lot of posts, so apologies for potential brevity and quality.

As per the new rules (http://administorum.com/index.php?topic=501):
As Battle Host, I've had to god-mod both Kitharsis and Danyael.  Both now have 3 weeks to make their next post.
And now that everyone has posted, I myself have had to post too (which I've done) to prevent an Inquisitor from needing to God-mod me.

My next post will come after everyone has posted or been god-moded and will thus be at maximum 1 month from now.

As for the story:
- Kitharsis has broken into the krooza's bridge, punching a big-ol' hole in the process.  He isn't attacking yet but the damage he did caused decompression which everyone will need to react to.
- Soul Reaver has thrown up a Shield to seal the breach, but that still left several seconds of decompression happening, so if you don't take some sort of action you might have been sucked out into space before then

The curse of, "I'll do it tomorrow" took hold quite well.  I'm sorry the boards isn't as high on my todo list as it should be.  The irregular cadence also makes it hard to keep the battle on my mind.

Either way, The Shaman has made an appearance, and is doing all he can to contain Kitharsis at the moment.  He could use some assistance.
