    @Specter of Death Ahh, gotcha. Damn. Okay that's fine, again it's been awhile and I haven't been in an RP for a hot minute. I will edit that part out to something else.

    Think I could edit it to maybe having Theo give him some information on the road ahead? Not anyone or anything specific, just something along the lines that Hale hired Theo's ring to do some scouting in this unfamiliar territory, which may or may not come back to bite him in the ass.

    I think it's good now, @Specter of Death . It's nothing specific about any of us, nor anything too specific as a whole that would ruin any of our fun, but it is some intel that could be useful/that Hale could use to ingratiate himself with Lord Gravus...cause, ya know, Gravus reminds Hale of an old friend and all that.

    @Hale Loneshadow

    Yes, that would be perfectly acceptable. Again, 95% of your post was just fine and wonderfully put together. Reading the other characters as Hale was also acceptable as well, as most other characters have already done so.

    Just keep in mind that in your writing if it in any way takes control of the actions, intentions, dialogue or judgements of other characters--without discussing it with said characters' writers--it's against general RP guidelines. It's also a fairly understandable thing to overlook if you haven't been in practice, which is why I wanted to bring it up to you instead of getting angry and offended or anything like that (as that's become a norm when things like that happen, and as a mod they are annoying reports I have to sift through).

    I think about it this way too, if one character wants to have some insight on another, it's better overall for both writers to collaborate on how to gain that insight. That way, one writer can be like: "I want to do this and this, what would happen with your character if I did that?" Then the other could respond with input that furthers the immersion of the whole experience, as well as broaden's the quality of posting across multiple creators entirely.

    It can be done in PMs with only the other writers involved if you want to keep it a secret, for example, and then just inform everyone "Hey guys, Myself and So-and-so are collaborating with our characters with the next couple posts," or "Me and the OP have discussed this aspect of my character that we want to keep secret, and they said it's fine so look forward for a few surprises later." Or you can just make it a public thing in the OOC. Whatever works as long as people are in the loop.

    The only exception to this, I would say, is if you are taking control of NPC characters--but we already know how to do that so far, as it's what we have all been doing with Lord Gravus and his advisors.

    @Hale Loneshadow

    Yes! That is much better. It also adds a bit of detail nobody else has added yet, which overall adds to the general experience and wow-factor.

    @Specter of Death Thank you for the compliment mate! Yeah, that's what I was going for with the whole Hale/Theo interaction. And thank you even more for, as you stated, not getting all angry and plopsty about it, it was an honest mistake after being rusty from all this RP'ing for a few years.

    Thanks for the help and advice, I'm sure I'll be utilizing it all soon enough!

    Maelin won’t be talking directly to anyone in particular unless talked directly to, so that’s likely a no from me Epic :)

    So I'll wait for a few more responses before I have Gravus get us moving.

    No, sorry. Recruiting has been closed for some time now.
