Hey everyone. :) We've got another new member to the game! Please welcome Gary, who will be our very own Doc Cottle (10drluvincottle)! Gary's RP background has involved many years of MUSH, so he's still getting accustomed to LJ. Interestingly, though, he's a real life med student. We now have someone to take care of a dying president and sick patients! He hopes to add some authencity to his replies without "tying the game down in too much detail and unnecessary crap".

Excellent outlook. You'll find his info in the Yellow Pages. Welcome, Gary!

Off-Topic: This week's been extra busy for most everyone because of holidays (Canada Day / Independence Day). I want to stress that this game is here for your relaxation, not as another chore. Using your free time to contribute to the game is enough for me to ask for. Thanks and keep it up! We're resolving this Gideon / Ellen Tigh issue shortly and moving forward. I intend to move fast this summer.

I'm thinking of taking on a second character. It would either be Boomer or Baltar. Both would be a lot of fun to roleplay. I'd love the angst that would go along with being Boomer, but Baltar is all weird and twichy, which would also be a blast to play. Anyone have any thoughts?

I'll be taking on a second character myself, a more Galatica related character so I can play with all you lovely Peeps even while Roz is off being Presidential (Ah, yes, this is Ericka, Roslin's player!). I love the darling Cally, and so I'll be playing her now, as last night's post indicates!

So, can't wait to rp a bit more! Please come visit Cally in sickbay, she's going stircrazy and it might be an excuse to be there if/when the cholera patients start to arrive!

Also, if any if ya'll are thinking of taking on a second character, you know you love Tyrol *wink, wink* or even Socinus. We gotta get on making that still!

Taking over for Caprica Sharon. :) Galactica Boomer is still up for grabs, so send an application my way if you're interested in her. (Or sign up as her Temp.) Ahem.

Let's move, mister!

Contrary to my earlier, deleted post, I will not be temping Helo. No, I've taken the far less sane path and decided to play him for good. As he's still on Caprica (and will be for a good while yet), please feel free to ping me for [PAST] scenes until the boy drags himself and his baby mama back to the bucket. ;)

Our lovely Mod is my designated Temp for Helo when he needs to be in the same scene as Kara. :)

Too much bureaucracy hampers game play, so I hope to make this the last notice for a while. This is a complicated issue. Please read everything carefully.

[1] Starting now, you may APPLY for another character.

See the Roster for available characters. If you see one you want to own, email me your application. If there are discrepancies between you and another writer, be ready to compromise.

You're allowed to own more than two characters. However, I WILL look at you funny when I ask you to convince me why. Not trying to scare you. Just being frank. If you're approved, you own the character indefinitely. Either you give up the rights or another writer takes it over your dead body.

Once you own a character you may do anything with him/her/it, including granting another writer permission to Temp that character whenever you need help. This is explained in detail below. For example: If you own both Adama and Tigh, it will be difficult to write against yourself in a scene (and gain any satisfaction, that is). We understand that sometimes you need a hand, a prompt from another writer, and we're here to lend one. Just ask around.

First come, first served.

[2] Want the fun without the commitment? TEMP a character.

Playing a Temp is the lite version of Rule One above. We need Viper pilots. Physicians. An XO. Caprican models. Deck hands. Many shoes remain unfilled. Because Temps are considered a different status than owned characters, you can sign up for as many Temps as you want.

[ Sign up for a Temp here. ]

First come, first served. I'm asking you to sign up to prevent confusion between writers. Let's avoid toes being stepped on because of poor communication.

Unofficially, once signed up, you are that Temp's writer. Officially, you run the risk of someone actually applying for your Temp and stealing them away for good. This is an issue of commitment, therefore, I consider it fair. If you end up loving your Temp, apply for them. If you hate your Temp, delete yourself from the list. Someone else may pick up your slack, no big deal.

The only catch? Temps are not allowed to post new threads. (Defeats the whole purpose of taking the time and undergoing the full application process like a model citizen.) Temps may only be used to reply to existing threads.

When posting as a temp, please use your original account; do not make new journals. It's the best way to distinguish between an owned character and a temporary character.

If you're merely helping out another writer for a day, no need to sign up. The sign-up is meant more for people who want to Temp a character for the long haul. (And even then I would strongly urge you to fully Apply.)

The Temp info page has been updated to reflect this post.

Got it? Let me know if you have questions.

Hey guys. I'm going to be out of town from Monday, June 26th to Thursday, June 29th with limited internet access. If you need to contact me for any of the ongoing plots, email is the best bet but I still probably won't respond posting-wise until I'm back.

I thought you two would appreciate this. :DCollapse )

I've also got a present for the rest of you...

Hello, everyone! I'd post my application questionnaire but I was difficult and wrote a rather brief one, leading our moderator to ask for more. So the second thing I wrote responded to the cholera event, and now I've posted it there.

Oh, Gaius.

We've caught another one! Please welcome Claudia to the family, everyone! She'll be playing Gauis' lovely hallucination, Number Six (areyou_alive). Claudia's previous experience was RP by email and for now, she's temp'ing [*] Caprica Six until a new player expresses interest in owning her.

However, please help Claudia out by temp'ing Gauis Baltar. (As you know, anyone may temp untaken characters.) She's correct in thinking that playing both Six AND Baltar at the same time would be rather self-masturbatory. :>

Yay to a growing family! Please say hello to our first cylon Claudia!

[*] Your rights as a Temp and the number of characters you're allowed to apply for in this game will be resolved this weekend. I know some of you have expressed interest in taking a second role. And we're all about sharing and caring here... :D
