Just so we're clarified.

Bar is a room.
LadyM is a Woman in Bar.
Necro is a Man in Bar.
Shadow is a Man in Bar.

Apartment/Office Building is a region.
Office is a room is Apartment/Office Building.

Bar is across the street from Apartment/Office Building

Balambo Congo Night Club is a region.
Main lobby is a room in Night Club.
Nightclub Bar is a room in Night Club.
Ricky Draples is a man in lobby
Vivec is a Man is lobby
Genesis is a Man in Nightclub Bar

Balambo Congo Nightclub is near the docks

Flonase Cafe Is a room.

Flonase Cafe is down the street from bar.
Detective is a man in Cafe

Compile Game

Problem. The sentence 'Office is a room is Apartment/Office Building'   appears to say two things are the same - I am reading 'Office' and 'room is Apartment/Office Building' as two different things, and therefore it makes no sense to say that one is the other: it would be like saying that 'Ron is Hermione'. It would be all right if the second thing were the name of a kind, perhaps with properties: for instance 'Hogsmeade is a lighted room' says that something called Hogsmeade exists and that it is a 'room', which is a kind I know about, combined with a property called 'lighted' which I also know about.


Problem. The sentence 'Bar is across the street from Apartment/Office Building'   appears to say two things are the same - I am reading 'Bar' and 'across the street from Apartment/Office Building' as two different things, and therefore it makes no sense to say that one is the other: it would be like saying that 'Ron is Hermione'.

Problem. The sentence 'Balambo Congo Nightclub is near the docks'   appears to say two things are the same - I am reading 'Balambo Congo Nightclub' and 'near the docks' as two different things, and therefore it makes no sense to say that one is the other: it would be like saying that 'Ron is Hermione'.

Problem. You wrote 'Flonase Cafe Is a room'  : but I can't find a verb here that I know how to deal with, so I am ignoring this sentence altogether.


Problem. The sentence 'Flonase Cafe is down the street from bar'   appears to say two things are the same - I am reading 'Flonase Cafe' and 'down the street from bar' as two different things, and therefore it makes no sense to say that one is the other: it would be like saying that 'Ron is Hermione'.

Note to VFX watch...You already knew I was going to be at the Flonase Cafe not the Balambo Congo...

And it's possible your gun's site was cockeyed and the bullet may have just grazed him, and figured out what was going on and pretended he was shot.  ;) If the good doctor would like to use that explination or any of many to get out of it. He doesn't seem to like that twist.

Okay, Ric Draples is an ex-fiance.. not a husband or ex-husband. Perhaps he is pissed because I dumped him and wouldn't marry him. Hmmm? Motive maybe?

Post by: Genesis on July 29, 2006, 08:56:13 am
As a note when I said dead, it was from my perspective. If you want him to survive them you can use the excuse sgore used, or something else to keep him around. I had my reasons for having to speed it up which everyone will figure out within 24 hours. I understand that he probally dosen't like that and if he reads this, I am willing to help him find a way to keep his character alive. Anyway I deeply aplogize for any trouble this caused.
PS, that Um, no belongs here I think.

Apparently we have to go with something where he dosen't even notice it, could you decide on a reason for it not to kill you? I'm ok with that I actually perfer it, but don't pretend I didn't do anything. THAT I find a tad offensive.

Like I said, I'm glad we have this thread to sort stuff out like this in.

Anyway, I didn't realize Krakow was seriously going away for 2 weeks when I wrote myself into the gift shop. So if my moves may be a little bit spaced apart over the next few days.

Post by: PatMan33 on August 03, 2006, 10:09:08 pm
This is the Out of Character section.

What you do is create a character and write up a backstory and whatnot. Then you put your character into a world which you and other people fill out by writing about the character's exploits in that world.


It is kind of like what you guys do in the Spore forum except this is the proper way.  ;)

It can provide months of fun if you have good writers that are dedicated.

Post by: sgore on August 10, 2006, 01:07:34 pm
Ahem. I Have decided to submit a new rule. As I don't want this one to crash like the 2nd one, If someone's prolonged silence is interfering with a plot line's continuance other player may treat it as an uncontroled character until the controlling poster returns.

We did the game succesfully before on this fourm with the first one. 2nd one bombed because people started going off in random directions (Starting with Cobra's Hey it's daytime not nighttime thing from his enterance...First rule of Improv, RPing or anything else reqiuring the use of people's agreed imaginations to keep it going: If someone says it's a Quail, Don't say no it's a top Hat.). 3rd one is fun and saveable as the plotlines aren't so confusing as to discourage anyone from posting period. I figure this rule'll just help getting through the rough patches.
