I would be willing to at least continue battling the narbonics SiB. Just so you know

OK, here's what I'm going to do. Show of hands. Anyone who's in favor of me moving to oversee the story, say "Aye".
Anyone who wants it to die, say "Nay" (or don't say anything at all.)

Who's up for continuing?

Zobot- Don't feel too bad about it. DMing takes a lot more effort than playing, partly because you're doing more and partly because for some people (me, and it sounds like possibly you too) it starts feeling more like an obligation than something you do for fun. Given what I've read of the other game, I get the feeling you were expecting everyone to need a lot less input from you, so there's that, too. I've run into the same thing—tried to DM a game I expected to be mostly player-driven and had to give up on it when the players didn't take off on their ideas. I've had some long-term plans for Nicola, and one that I got to enact, but in the short term I've been mostly been reacting to input, and most of us haven't really been making any effort to write our own events and dialogues with NPCs.

In short: have been where you are, understand, don't worry too much about it. :wink: If you have the time and inclination to keep playing an NPC you liked, or introduce a character, I at least would be happy to see you stick around to some degree.

Speaking of which... *puts hand up* I'm certainly up for continuing with Soitbegins as story coordinator.

We've actually got a pretty nice setup with the New York characters: Nicola and Amy are with the Narbonic crew. Elijah is hunting for the Narbonics, Jack is hunting for Nicola and Amy. The pair up in Canada is a bit removed from the action, but they've got the basis for a partnership (an erratic partnership, characterized by obsessive personalities and short attention spans, but that's mad science for you!). Brian isn't directly involved with anyone (unless Ellie's player is still here?), but he's meeting up with the Army, so that could put him into contact/rivalry with either Jack or the Canadian pair. All fertile ground for some proper mad scientist feuds...

Zobot, no worries, man. DMing can be a lot of work, and if you aren't having fun too, then it's time to call the game.

As for continuing under someone else, I wouldn't mind. Given where Randall started, it's been hard to run things without some sort of DM interference. On the other hand, I worry that the same thing might end up happening. I'm really not good with controlling anything beyond my character, so I really wonder if I'm cut out for this sort of game. :(

Well, if you're willing to shoulder this, SiB, than I can pass my notes to you. I'll get them typed up and sent to you sometime tonight.

So many "Aye"'s... now I just need someone to dance a ghostly pirate jig. :lol:

Just kidding.
Yep, I'll shoulder MSW2. An idea is a terrible thing to waste.

Alright... stuff tonight took a lot longer than I thought it would, so I'll have those notes to you by tomorrow sometime, SiB.

To quote Gary Jackson... "The Game Must Go On!"

I'm certainly willing to stick around as well, though I'll be sad to see you go, Professor.

There... notes have been sent. Let me know if you have any questions, SiB!

And I may be back later, Whiteknight... either as a player or to return to GMing if SIB ever needs help down the road. I haven't entirely decided yet. For the moment, though... I'm just kinda burnt out on this game. I'm sorry.

OK. There will be a slight delay as I get things going... in the meantime, how about a song?

OK, I've been reading through the archives and I think I've got a feel for the characters. New post up soon!

It's going to be a week or so before I can reply—I'm going to be on vacation and well away from anyplace where I might have Internet access. Happily, I'm only interacting with Soitbegins at the moment, and you have plenty of other people to keep you busy. Will have something for the Narbonics when I get back!

If no one else posts by tomorrow, SiB, I'll e-mail them to see if they're still involved, ok?

I'm still around, though I've been debating relegating Randall to NPC status for the time being. I've been slowly withdrawing from all my RP right now. I'll keep checking, and might come back, but I think for now, I'm gonna have to put things off for a while. :(

It appears that, through disinterest, apathy, or just plain lack of people,

MSW2 Has Died.
RIP | FML | Gone, But Not Forgotten


I'm sorry. It's a pity, but... there you go. May what exists of the story linger on, as a sample of what could have been.

And, anyone who still reads this forum: Come join us over on the main story, The Mad Scientist Wars!
