I think it's time I took some initiative and kick-started this thing myself. XD
So, executive decision time. Character limit is increased to three. I'm going to readvertise at the main communities and try to pick up some people. Aaaaaand, I'm alerting you guys now that I'm picking up Hoenheim. It might result in some talking to myself, but after some discussion, there was no way around SOMEONE talking to themselves.
Basically, this game has been too cool to me for me to let it die. And you guys have been more than awesome and patient. We've never run a game before, for good reason- it's HARD! D:
If you want more characters, just drop me a profile. I don't really need an extended writing sample, since I know how you guys work- just something to give me an idea of how you see the character. You guys have first pick, obviously, so I'll wait a day or two before I post advertisements. No limits on who you can take, as long as they're alive after episode 25, just like before. Our Royplayer has dibs on Ling from the manga, but anyone else is free game. Including the panda, and the guy you fight all the time in the Playstation game.
Also, another note- if RPing over AIM is too annoying, an option I've seen in other games is locked threads. Basically, just post your first action to the community, with a note on who you want to drop by, if anyone specific. The roleplaying itself takes place over comments.
Let me know if you have any questions or issues. Current Mood: nauseated

Sorry about the absence- after we got back from vacation, our esteemed mod came down with bronchitis, and we both ended up in the emergency room (for different reasons), and her fever just broke yesterday or so.
Anyway, I'm here to ask for input. The discussions we got done about the RP usually ended up centering around "we need more people" and "we need someone to play Hoenheim" (my personal input), and "if we're following the manga, does that mean I can play Barry the Chopper"?
Basically, what do you guys think? About needing more people, which we always do... we already advertised at all the major FMA communities when the community kicked off, and I'd hate to spam them, but there's so much of a cast we need to fill. Obviously, allowing more characters for everyone would help fill that gap, but I don't think it can entirely. (Unless we each had eight characters or so, which I don't think anyone can handle without RPing with themself, which is always not fun.) If anyone has any ideas for the plot issues, as in following the anime or manga- do we want to include Dante, or just leave it to Hoho? Do we want to create an entirely non-dependent storyline?
So, any ideas you have, let me have it. We're all in this together. Current Mood: cheerful

Havoc and Fury have a little chat
Okay here's me and wire_geek
working with Havoc and Fury. We ran into a little bit of a problem though. Thsi was done in spurts over a couple weeks, and the first section didn't get saved. It wasn't long, but it was the beginning so it's kind of important. We put our heads together and approximated it, and this is what came out. I've indicated the beginning the actual saved log with **.
sorry for posting this without full feedback, AIM exploded, it seems)( Havoc and Fury chat about girls, money, and work.Collapse ) Current Mood: content

YOU MAY STAB ME WITH HURTY THINGS NOW
I am SO sorry for being out of touch last week. I've had a pretty evil summer cold and so have been spending my time either asleep or making my family wish I was. I am the worst mod ever.
Even worse, co-mod/Ed and I will be leaving tomorrow to go to Florida for two weeks. I promise not to slack off during my absence, though. Since I will finally have my partner in crime hostage free of the computer and Playstation, I will finally be able to force her into finishing up the work we need to do on the plot.
(She would like me to tell you that that is a dirty lie and that everything is my fault, though.)
Therefore, it is my goal to actually get this thing started upon our return. Expect a big fancy post in two weeks about what we plan on doing and the final verdict on multiple characters.
In the meantime, have fun. Try not to stick too many pins in your voodoo dolls of me. I want to be able to enjoy my time in Disney World at least a little. Current Mood: listless

Hey! I'm the new person!
This is my first time RP-ing a non-original character, so this should be interesting. I'm RPing Jean Havoc, in case you couldn't tell. This looks like alot of fun! See you all around! Current Mood: chipper

HEY. YO. LISTEN.
Not that this game seems to be getting anywhere with the one character limit, but what do you think about allowing more characters per player? I haven't gotten any apps for months and I'm losing hope of getting any EVER, so I'm trying to think of ways to get things going.
Also, if I don't hear back from Wrath player and Hawkeye player before the end of the month, I'm going to make those characters available for play again. I really hate to have to do that, but I don't see any other alternative.
(And if I do end up allowing three characters, I SO have dibs on Ling. Rawr.) Current Mood: determined

Another Alphonse and Edward RP!
This was originally going to be posted earlier, but some things came up, and... yeah. To make up for it, here's the longer
disturbing themes, some fluff and angst, standard fare for me. *chuckles*
And I've currently been in every RP to date. Either I'm whoring myself out badly, or you all really like me. Maybe both? ^_^;;( 'I need you. All of you.'Collapse ) Current Mood: happy

OKAY, LISTEN UP!
Things have been moving very slowly around here. I know it's pretty much up to me to get things going, but it's not something I can do on my own. As I'm sure I've said, I've never run a game before. I'm used to just being a worker bee. If anyone has any suggestions as to how to get more people involved or more applications for the game, please speak up.
As to the people already involved in the game, all I can say is GET POSTIN'! A few of us have started posting and RPing fairly regularly, but Wrath and Hawkeye have yet to post once. I understand if something has come up in real life that's keeping you guys busy, but I'd appreciate if you'd let me know these kind of things. We have a really small cast right now and not having a Hawkeye makes it very difficult for me to do much with Roy.
In short, if you can do something for the game, PLEASE DO IT. If you can't, let me know. Current Mood: aggravated

Al and Ed RP log, guys! Warning- depressing as all get out, disturbing themes that you're probably all expecting.( I didn't want to say it...Collapse ) Current Mood: exhausted

First RP Post?
and I got to talking, and thinking, and such, and we both realized that we had no idea
how the logs were actually going to be posted. So... here's the results of our first RP session. Moderators, please tell us what (if anything) we've done incorrectly, so that we can correct ourselves before the storyline actually starts. :)( Caring and QuestionsCollapse ) Current Mood: nervous

Do not despair!
I apologize PROFUSELY for my absence and general neglect of my duties. I've just recently moved my base of operations from a college dorm to my house and I've been overwhelmed with my parents' insistence that I clean the whole place up whether I like it or not. Basically, I've been too exhausted to do anything more strenuous than sit on my butt and play Xenosaga II in what little free time I get. However, that's a very lame excuse and if it takes staying up until 3 in the morning to get things done here, that's what I'm going to do.
I really do want to get started in earnest and I think we'll actually be able to do that SOON. Well, as soon as our Ed gets off her rear and provides our Winry-to-be with the rest of the series. I've just started typing up an acceptance e-mail for Lust, so it looks like I'll actually get to start writing in Envy's journal soon.
In other news, Wrath applicant, I DID send you an e-mail telling you that you were accepted, right? I hope you check this...
In other other news, Hawkeye applicant, I suppose the lack of response is a "no" to my requests. *sigh* Back to square one. Current Mood: embarrassed

Obligatory Important First Post!
Welcome to the community! I am your friendly neighborhood mod/GM/dark master. Read the community info so I don't have to repeat myself. I may make this post more eloquent later, considering it's 2:30 in the morning right now. I just wanted to get something up here in case someone stumbles upon this overnight.
Please, please read the FAQ I am about to labor over. My sanity will appreciate it.( Most Excellent FAQ: Version OneCollapse )
The preceding FAQ is likely to be added to later, once I get a better handle on what I need to say. This is...erm...sort of my first time running a game...^^; Current Mood: accomplished
