I agree... we should avoid throwing other characters into the story unless they are ours or they are already used so that the creator can create their own backstory-their motives, etc.

Wayne's motive was money and the gun he always wanted.

Jack's motive was the Evolutionist's Stone-and ultimately to defeat the warlords

The other character's you used now has to fit in this story, when the creator may have intended to use them as either villains or in another part of the RP world.

I think we should at least establish the motive's and reasons for our own characters to be in the story before we go off using them. So no interacting with other characters till motive has been established from now on.

I hope that this becomes one of the rules since I'm planning to use Micky D. later much later as being brainwashed by the evil warlords or some other villain and attacking the main people until someone gets the bright idea to trigger his "epilepsy" to cure him. So if he was used in some other origin story, I'd probably feel angry too.

Is it okay if I wrap up this end of the story so we can move out of the tunnels and into the day?
(Perhaps the Evolutionist's Stone can be a macguffin--a thing all the characters want and drives the plot, but is rarely used)

Explosion is a plot device to bring the fight to the streets and possibly end the scene.
No trolling or flaming intended.

Re: Offical RP thread.

667
If my recent chapter really gets your goat, Bug--I know you're the guy who came up with the Stone in the first place--I apologize.

But really, now that a huge source of power (and quite possibly a deus ex machina) has been taken away, it allows for more interesting writing and more inventive, rather than explosive, power use.

And it also takes us away from the land of black and white and into more morally gray areas. Jack's still a hero and a liberator, but he's carrying around a lie in his pocket. Wayne's still ruthless and amoral, but he's using his abilities for the side of good. Ben's past issues with the nature of his life keep him from taking the fastest path to achieving his goals.

If nobody likes it, it's not canon no more. End of story.

This is from www.tvtropes.org, a site that points out similarities within fiction and sometimes non-fiction.

"Macguffin is a term for a motivating element in a story that is used to drive the plot that doesn't itself affect anything. Unlike Chekhov's Gun, it actually serves no further purpose — it won't pop up again later, it won't explain the ending, it won't actually do anything except possibly distract you while you try to figure out its significance. In some cases, it won't even be revealed. It is usually a mysterious package/artifact/superweapon that everyone in the story is chasing. "

For example, the Holy Grail is a macguffin in King Arthur's tale

Gentlemen, you guys made me proud. Taking away the main focus of the first few chapters was a risky move, but I think I handled it artfully and you handled it like pros.

I'll take Brazil if Wish, Shadowulf, or Bug wants to explore the mesa.

Brazil sounds fine. I also want to know who Ben's friend is.

BTW, I was planning to do an origin story on Wayne Cobain to give everyone else a feel on his powers and to explain his morality or lack thereof. Do you think it will interfere with the RP thread?

How about an origin story in a separate thread than the main story-doesn't have to be in continuity-except maybe about his powers?

Re: RP Comments

We really need to have a villains side of the story, to spice it up

Maybe a team of "heroes" and a team of "villains"-well its morally grey in some areas but here is the groups I think should be there

1. Jack's Group-the Liberators/Main characters

2. Warlords group-the people in charge or the Big Bads

3. Ben's group-the alternate view-seeing as they are separated for now

4. Some sort of "wildcard" character-someone who doesn't care about the battle between the two forces and is not on any side-suggestions---->probably a new power user/a badass antihero who is not currently on either side and won't be swayed easily onto either
