Dips on sniper or machine gunner, whichever is more applicable.

Wow, not getting much enthusiastic support from the RPPR fans.

He's gonna have to ask other fourms to players at this rate. Is that what everybody here wants? Play-by-post outsourcing?! You should be ashamed of yourselves!

I'm saying that we have nearly seventy members on the forums and there's been little responce. You showed interest, I was directing my comment towards the many who haven't.

For other games: most everybody have stopped with Ross's because he hasn't updated it; mine is dead ending because I'm having writing block and lack of emotional connection to the game; my other PbPs never took off; Setherick's only had two people show interest in his thread; and here we have JonHook, who RPPR listens literally know can run a good game because he was on the show, and he's largely gotten alot of nothing.

Well, there is one thing tho Tad, most of our board members right now only come on to post on the thread periodically. Even on the SA forums the only reason they have a good PbP section is because they have hundreds of thousands of board members total. Once we develop more members, the PbP section will develop.

I know and I know that our ratio of actual members to posting members is quite good. But til we get more I have to try and guilt and/or outrage the ones we have into joinning. I'd go with physical intimidation but the whole internet thing makes that alot harder.

I find that physical intimidation works well with my freshman students. It helps when you're 6'3", 220.

My tenured instructors used to inform us that they could use their tenure award statuette to kill a student once per term.

I like the book method. One of my IT instructors informed me that the cable braids he'd run along the ceiling in the testing room was so thick and well supported that they could hold up a body, like that of, say, an uppity freshman.

On an unrelated note, our math instructor taught us how to cheat on ScanTron tests, thus justifying his refusal to use them for his testing.


Also I've decided to go for office first, point man second. I love handing out order is RP situations.

Players list...

Definite YES:
Tadanori Oyama
Setherick
Dragonshaos

These are MAYBES:
Dawnsteel
Maze


Thanks for the rally-call Tad! And thanks for the props.  ;D

Dawnsteel... Maze... you guys interested enough to play? I think five would be an good enough number. At least I hope so.  ;)

If we need more bodies I can convince, er force, Karee to play.

I like that Novelist cliche in Risus. :)


Yar, I'll give it a shot, Jon.  Don't make me be the ell tee, please.  I'd be happy to round out the squad as (in no particular order here) a demo specialist, grenadier, SAW gunner, rifleman, redshirt meatshield, or whatever.
I didn't come here to win. I came to make friends.

In the WW2 game, I think that would be BAR gunner. If you want to be the BAR gunner, I'll be the sniper.

EDIT: Jon, I would like my psychic ability to be able to see a split second into the future as a way of making very accurate shots.
