I don't think this is going to happen. Maybe it was a bad idea?

I'm sorry for pushing you all into this and not doing enough to help.

EDIT: See comments below; we've been feeling overwhelmed because it seemed to us that we have to do all the work or something, and we doubted that anyone was actually interested. ^^; Even though it seemed like we had some good discussions going.

Please comment or PM to let us know if you're still interested, and if so, what we can do to help make participating easier for you.

I'm still absolutely interested! I think it's a fascinating game concept. Hopefully some other folks checkin soon*fingers crossed*

At the moment, I'm in a hotel room, halfway across the country from home for hopefully my last business trip of this year. Handwriting out notes for Ilaria to type up later - I don't really like writing up a lot of rp stuff on my work laptop^^;; Some people tote along two laptops, but I'm saving that one for when I have a PA to carry them for me.... By which I mean, I guess never.

Nothing to be sorry for:) You've been doing a great job so far (and quite a bit better than most GMs I've played with about providing atmosphereic info!)

The most important question is whether running the game is still the right thing for you right now; you need to look after yourself first and foremost.

I'll be getting home tomorrow (me = tired of cold hotel rooms) and get back into rping mode. If only there were a button for that, it would be so much more seamless;)

I am still invested.

I am sorry I have been unhelpful recently. I have been using most of my time and energy to look after myself.

On a personal level:

I appreciate the concern. Thanks.

I find it easiest to deal with when I have really clear expectations of what they want and how they'll react. So… maybe be more explicit about what you want and how you're feeling? And feel free to contact me even when I'm not reciprocating.

About RP progress:

I feel like we're having communication issues. I'm not sure when I could or should be talking to people, but we don't seem to be talking much as a group and co-operative set-up seems to be pretty vital in the way the Fate system works.

I'm not sure if that is the main issue that you're trying to solve/ work around. If it is an issue:

Personally, I'd try to solve this by asking people to discuss on a platform that is not very threaded, so people are encouraged to read through everyone's contributions, and keep a shared access document with agreed-upon game details.

However, if you find people easier than tech, you could arrange times when all the group would pay attention and preferably contribute. Or split off players into twos or threes and ask them to work on an area and bring back their joint conclusions.

Also, I don't know how much this is true for other people, but I'm having a hard time getting my head around the setting. I don't know the games you're basing it on, so I am finding it really hard to guess what sort of themes/ approaches/ details are appropriate to the setting. I'm not sure what sort of story we're trying to tell.

That was a handy theme recap, thank you. And a helpful reiteration that this isn't really meant to be specifically set IN any of the inspiration worlds. I was slightly fuzzy on that personally.

I'm loving the theme recap, too. :D Am brushing up as I try to write that post I owe you...

Sorry that I haven't replied to this. I haven't been feeling great.

Checking in! I'm most definitely still interested - this concept is great and I'm loving the character group that's forming up, both PCs and NPCs.

Provided you're good to go too. ^^ (And yeah - I see the above note.)

Actually I have a question about game structure, but I will toddle off and make a character thread for Rai, to keep this one uncluttered.

Yeah, moving will do that to you. ^^ I figured your move was eating all your time.

As for my own lack of time... well, the JLPT is done now, as are the craft swaps, so I should have a little more freedom in the coming couple of weeks. \o/

I could definitely use some help. ^^

I tried borrowing your sheet format for the character thread, but it's blank right now.

The comment on that post is a question for you, and is the biggest thing stopping me right now. I don't know what version of him to build - or whether I should do some of both.
