    In this thread you can discuss the story without actually interrupting the flow of the story thread. So, any non-RP discussion of the story goes here.

    Posted the first actual story post. It's nothing in particular of importance, but simply thought I'd put in the appearance of one person so you guys can get a feeling of how they "appear". I imagine most people that we play as won't have as terrible a reaction (and as early a death) as I did this particular person who happens to be called Daniel and is from Edinburgh did.

    Fingers crossed, we'll have a few people making appearances soon. When you do appear, expect a sense of confusion/dizziness as it should be unexplained (even though some more advanced civilizations might have theories regarding it, there is at the moment NO confirmed way that Outworlders are appearing in this world). So you could have an Outworlder called Picard who travels between worlds all the time and he suddenly appears in this one, and just assumes that some kind of teleport-competent race has abducted him into this world, but in reality this may not actually be the case.

    Essentially nobody should know how they got into the world, but there can certainly be coincidences where people might think that something in paticular has happened through stories or technology or magic. In fact, your characters should absolutely theorise on how they got there, although for now the main story is just how people react to each other.

    Posted my first story post. I'm trying to keep things nice and ordered, and so I'm using the GoT chapter style. I hope it works. And I hope people actually like my writing!

    I actually like that idea for using GoT styled chapter headings. I will start doing that as well.

    Really enjoying this so far. I've never RPed before, so I hope I'm not obviously sucky at this. On a more positive note, Paper Star! You implemented a Queen's Festival in their story didn't you: Thank you! As soon as I saw that, I thought of a great opportunity to seam it into my own storyline. Thanks!

    I think BoB started it, actually. But since continuity is good, I made sure to be aware of it in my posts. Native Sedorrans should know about the queen's events~ XD

    PS - you're doing fine in the RP! I've seen some bad RPers and no one here is close to that.

    Starting on my left with one, your number comes up, you go.

    Was it BoB? I don't know, I haven't read everyone's yet. Whoever it was, good job. I like continuity as well. Makes Sedorra seem like a connected place.

    There is a festival for the Queen of Lucrecia taking place in Lucrecia (obviously) at the moment. The festival is officially in the evening, however the dancers and entertainers have recently arrived in King's Square (the main trading area of Lucrecia) and are showing off, as entertainers tend to in order to build up hype and get into the mood for such festivals.

    Hang on, hang on! It takes me awhile to figure out what my character is going to be doing. I'll be posting Locke's third chapter at some point today.

    I aim to start pushing events into real flow beyond "oh, it's a new world" soonish, unless another GM wants to mix things up themselves. It'll move towards "Oh, the people have figured out that this is A Thing". Once that happens we'll really be able to start getting a few people together and arranging a proper plot rather than the current large grouping of separate plots.

    Also, I may soon introduce bad people.
