Genius Loci: OOC

Doors to Darkness yawn open to reveal three hair raising tales!

Genius Loci - Not all is well at the Kirby State Lunatic Asylum and it’s down to the investigators to heed a friend in need’s cry.
Ties That Bind - Strange rock formations have been found in Mrs. Carrington’s prized fountain. But these are like no rocks seen before!
None More Black - The death of a Rice University student leads the investigators into unsavoury neighbourhoods and dark business dealings.

Are you the Dreamer or are you the Dream? Shadows flitting at the corners of your vision, haunting laughter just outside your window and inhuman, eerie sounds in the middle of the night, all of this and more await the unwary once you open the Doors to Darkness!

Kind of what it is. OOC for Genius Loci.

Are we ready to go for Monday, I'm changing to Tuesdays and Thursdays, some Saturdays/Sundays due to some real life schedule changes. Let's do a check in and let me know if you're ready for tomorrow. :ugeek:

Note: you may refer to me as Umbral, or UD if you need brevity. thanks.

I'm ready. Will fill in character details tonight. I don't know if you saw my sheet as is so far, hopefully my choices for possessions are acceptable

Jimmy and his gun are ready to shred the Mythos into pieces. :D I check in daily, and see no reason why I can't keep that pace.

Lol Ive practically been checking hourly. I think in the forum index you can go to the bottom and click the text that says subscribe with a checkbox next to it and you should get emailed when anyone posts.

Oh yeah, we just don't have an IC thread to subscribe to yet. When we do, that'll do the trick nicely.

Ok, talking posts:
I will begin a post on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Sometimes on the weekends. It is not necessary to post on the weekends. Sometimes we'll have a discussion that runs over.
Throughout the day, you can post when you are available. Or let us know if you're out that day so we don't go into combat or something similar without you. Easy peezy. Any questions, suggestions or rants, let me know. :?:

Hey maybe a dumb question is there a preference for tense and first/third person naration in our posts? I went back amf read some other games and some people say "he walked to the door" and in the same game someone else will say "she walks to the door" my natural state is to try to be in character as much as possible so I would probably say "i walk to the door". But if it makes continuity and readability better I'll just go along with what everyone else does or whatever the dm prefers.

I would use 1st person.
Ex: I walk into the room. I see that Jim is as nervous as I am. "Let's find that book and get out of here," say to him.

We could use other conventions, but I don't want to get too formal. As long as there is clarity, I'm good.

Great narration on that last post jp!

I'm a third person past tense guy, personally. Hope that works alright, but if it clashes too much I can adapt it. Conversely, my OOC posts tend to be first person from my own perspective as a player.
