Re: Lasers and Feelings [IC]

While the rest of the crew was shooting back at the yet unknown enemy, Trigger was standing in place, calculations on most optimal actions and registering the dynamic fight vai ship’s sensors occupying almost all of his computing reserves. He was using what little was left to fight off Charlie’s stu...

Re: Lasers and Feelings [IC]

Wu had some rather mixed feelings about large bodies of water-- a term which in this context referred to any assemblage of water larger than a puddle. On one hand, she had always found in them a certain alien beauty she couldn’t help admiring, perhaps because back home such bodies of water were as r...

Re: [RPC O] The High-ku Jump

Spring becomes summer--
the shadow of your absence
makes days into years.

It's a pretty straightforward take on the prompt of death: life after the passing of a beloved leaves the passing of seasons meaningless.

Re: Lasers and Feelings [IC]

“Rally to the crimson flag, sons and daughters of So-Dhaat, Raise the banner high and proud, for victory draws near!” It was game day in Sayiina Wu’s quarters. Really, any day could be game day if Wu so desired: she had a veritable warehouse’s worth of maandhan games at her disposal, recordings of ...

Re: Lasers and Feelings [OOC/Interest Check]

Sayiina Wu Bold, brash, and irrepressible, Wu seems to throw herself into everything she does—be it a dance or a gunfight, a song or a brawl—with a zest for life that seems at odds with her willingness to take life. Full Name: Sayiina Iye-Maan Dhattara Wu Age: Thirty five. Species: Human. Appearanc...

A fond farewell

Well, folks, I reckon that time eventually comes for all of us. My interest in RPing has dwindled steadily these past few months, and between that and the ever-increasing hustle and bustle of life, I've decided to bid RPGC, and forum RP in general, a fond farewell. I will probably stay in the Discor...

Re: Majestic [IC]

Thirty-Six was not an orator. It was nothing to do with reticence-- a trait nobody who’d found themselves on the business end of Thirty-Six’s insatiable curiosity could accuse the Version of possessing. It was also nothing to do with self-abnegation. But some people were speakers. Some people were p...

Re: What are you reading?

Currently reading Chris Moriarty's 'Spin State'. Well... finished it. To sum up my sentiments: somebody once said that you can judge the success of a president by whether or not they were able to convince the voters to give them a second term. And if, by similar logic, you can determine the worth o...

Re: Afterdark OOC - Open/Accepting

Rather than using a character profile, you will write a brief (1-2 paragraph) description of your character, hitting on the major details of appearance and background, and hinting at more to come as the character unravels and develops-- know that I'm not interested in who can write the most words, ...

Currently reading Chris Moriarty's 'Spin State'. It's not too bad. Flawed, but it's kept me reading. But man, one of the characters is just rubbing me the wrong way in every possible manner and every sentence involving him makes me want to put the book down more and more. If this one uniquely obnoxi...

Going to wait and see how things pan out with what Kyndal and Shoutentenshi offer up before I answer that, Georgeanna. Supposing they're both accepted, I think I'm going to cap the roster there.

Right, just a formality given it's been a while since there have been any posts or any mention of the possibility of posts, but I'm putting this thing on ice for the time being.
