I don't mean to sound pushy or anything, and I understand that Mods and Admins have alot on their plate.

However I would like to have even a little feed back, a yes, or a no, or even a we haven't quite got to it on our agenda so just wait a bit longer. Anything to assure me that its not going unnoticed.

I don't want that to sound ill, but I really don't want this idea to fade out. So please just leave something, anything will be fine.

~Thanks, Isoto~

Right now, I am trying to write up a Story Guide... so bear with me. I haven't forgotten about the stories in waiting.

And Mina and myself are the only ones able to approve stories. No mods in the picture in this area

Thank you very much Kalina, and I wasn't trying to imply that the pace needed to be picked up, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't forgotten.

So please take your time, now that I know I am still in your thoughts I will wait as long as needed.

~Thank you again, Isoto~

Maybe the writeup of the mercenaries base of operations would help to define things a bit better. Alot of merchants, musicians and entertainers follow these types of bands to fulfill a multitude of functions. Musicians, mages and such are also very useful for various endeavors. Talents such as these can gain players access to many places your common warriors could not. Well that is my 2 sans, hope they help this great idea gain a foothold.

Ok, the Story Guide Format is up Isoto, so if you could adjust your proposal to that, it would help and I will get to the stories asap.

Isoto, I have a couple more comments about your story here.

First, your rules. Are the rules meant to be in character or out of character? If they're just in character and thus breakable, then they're fine. But if they're not meant to be broken whatsoever, then I take issue with two of them in particular. First, you cannot absolutely make a character obey a direct order, to do so would possibly force them to act out of character. Second, your rule about trying not to get killed worries me. I want to be sure that you're aware that you cannot kill a character without his player's permission. Again, if these are only meant to be in character, then no worries.

Second, the focus of the story itself. Naturally it will be on warrior type characters, but I think even so the story focuses too much on them. You need more roles for non-combatants than just the option to help out at the base. It is no fun to sit around the base as all the warriors go off into the field. Are there no non-combat roles you can think of in the field? One option would be to allow characters to act as the people hiring your mercenaries, or even just someone they encounter out in the field.

Hello Vesk,

First off the rules are for in character only, the only OOC rules are the typical ten commandments of RPing. So no fears there.

And secondly, yes the story is primarily geared towards fighters but when I say non combatants I mean someone who has no skills what so ever. Ex would be the Selmic brothers, they cant fight but they make great scouts. And since some of the missions require stealth over bronze there will be a bigger opening for those not skilled with combat abilities.

Also the base will be as, in not more lively than missions. I intend to always have something going on. For example Petros is going to head up a arts school. If wanted any player can take on the role of any of my NPCs or replace an NPC with their own Character. But I will try my best to make sure everyone gets the same amount of role playing, to the best of my abilities.
