Ok. Official word on the date of the events described.

The RP takes place in February 1730. Accept no imitations.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Since no-one bothered to react to my post, I'll just delete it and make a new one referencing Irving.
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.

Fair enough Neo.

Do you think we need to have a conference with the players about posting...?

Just a small note about the East India Trading Company thing; there was more than one.

I threw this family tree together...




I hope it gives you an idea of their family. As you will note, the Likely bloodline only seems to have a single male child per generation save for Richard's generation, he has a sister. Also of note is Schala's date of death, because of her age inhibitors she will live to be VERY old.

If you are a little slow, you may not have noticed that I do not plan on killing my characters. :)

I figure that if we do the Wild West RP we could start on the date of Schala's death (Second red panel) because I have a good tie-in for it.

Finally, the color panels behind each generation serve more than just a way to make it easy to understand, red means a high affinity to some sort of magic or skill. As the colors cool there is less and less of an affinity. Most of the family has minimal affinity while there are spikes in abilities at various points.

Bernardo and Schala had the highest affinity in this section of the family. Matthew and Bethany have a high level but not nearly as high as Bernardo and Schala, this is where I hope the Wild West story will fall. Richard has a fair amount of magical affinity but he does not have any ability, that went to his sister who has hidden it from her family; Richard's affinity, however, has allowed him to excel in the field of science.


Bam, like that? I do so you better get used to it.

So the camp business, as the bandits converge, is the group still awake or have they all gone off to sleep now?

Anyone who feels like it is on watch.

I would say 1887 is a little late for a Wild West setting... it would be just about when the West stops being quite so wild... not such a great setting for superpowered hijinks.

According to Wikipedia the Old West pretty much ceased to be in 1890.

I took 1890 as the time when all of the serious Wild West stuff began to decline. It doesn't matter all that much to me, feel free to make it whenever you want.

I'll back down to 1880. ;)

Nice stuff.

I'll make a filler post as soon as you all are done with your fight. I don't want to kill the atmosphere.
