    How fast is the game play?
    As I recall last time you had an RPG you were rarely there and um...it died.
    Will this RPG have the same affect?

    All you can do is join and discover for yourself whether its a go or not.

    All games and GMs get a fair chance some games make it some don't.

    I understand that, but I was interested in his last one and when it die on me I was like poo :(
    I want to play this one as well, but I don't want it to die.
    I like when GMs RPGs are alive. :)
    And I am sure GMs like when their RPGs are alive as well.

    Hey mate! Had a couple questions:

    We can write in background information, but won't this kinda give a hint as to what group we'll end up in? Or did you want us to wait until we're PMed to put up profiles?

    Second, is everything in this game going to be based entirely in the Com? or will there be a balance of 'real life' and the Com?

    My general questions seem covered in those. What sort of things do people tend to get upto in the Chaos hour anyway. Do people go there looking for a fight or is it for the chance of greater manipulation of their enviroment.

    I have a lot of interrogations.
    What kind of powers do we have?
    And is our only aim to kill each other?
    And what kind of background information do we write?
    And do we always stay on that virtual internet?

    I was there for a lot of it actually. The reason it died out is because people stopped posting.

    What sort of things do people tend to get upto in the Chaos hour anyway. Do people go there looking for a fight or is it for the chance of greater manipulation of their enviroment.

    Acess to just about anything since most of the world is based around the Com and the Chaos Hour dosen't have the limits that are active during regular hours so they can essentially change the world through the Chaos Hour.

    We can write in background information, but won't this kinda give a hint as to what group we'll end up in? Or did you want us to wait until we're PMed to put up profiles?

    You canw rite up general background information before and even after being PMed your roles.

    Second, is everything in this game going to be based entirely in the Com? or will there be a balance of 'real life' and the Com?

    Based entirely in the Chaos Hour. The balance with real life is what killed my last game as that's when people stopped posting.

    what's this powers business... is it sky's the limit or what?... as in possibilities for powers, not the amount...

    Yeah, you can pretty much add your own powers in addition to any abilities your role may give you.

    And is our only aim to kill each other?

    Depends on your role.

    Neutrals just want to survive, so they don't HAVE to kill.

    Lurkers want to get rid of the Spots so they have total control(they don't care about the neutrals)

    Spots want to get rid of everyone in the Chaos Hour so they HAVE to kill everyone else.


    And what kind of background information do we write?

    Just an in general, personality, history, etc. It's optional anyway.

    LOL. Thanks for the answers, mate. Be advised that I see this as being similar to the Matrix. And I'm gonna be designing my character as such. ;)

    That said, I'm wondering if I should try playing a girl again? Opinions? :D

    ok, so... i've never RPGed before... you take newbies, yeah? haha~
    i'm really interested in this storyline.
    as for my question about this game: basically the two places are the Mainframe and the Chaos Hour, right? Can a character go in and out of the chaos hour at his own discretion, does he need to be in a specific place to get back out to the mainframe?

    I believe the mainframe is a subset of The Chaos Hour. J Random End User can see only the basic things in the Com, but someone in the Chaos Hour sees waaaaay more. I think....

    :D

    @67: Dont worry about that. I've only been on the scene for about 2 weeks. I just joined the forums and threw myself at the mercy of the RP forum. The continent is my first RP here and I'm doing well as far as I'm aware lol.

    @Teele: Go for it im enjoying doing something different as Kitty in the Continent its interesting playing a different character. And it also reminds me of the matrix i wonder why lol

    ok now to get my full profile up opposed to just a name and age

    I've gotta stop writing damaged characters. Kittys upset about killing her mum, this guy Simon is divorced and my one lined up for Crystand is going to be someone that left his own tribe and lives the life as an outcast in others cultures.

    Drake has again taken the charge.
    Last time he saved everyone by sacrificing himself.
