2007-11-06 [Cassave]: I did use a bit of an unlucky phrase there 8D
2007-11-09 [iippo]: Yes Ely, we'll wait til everyone's picked which char they'll play (and those who take too long will be poked with sharp objects) :P
2007-11-09 [Aradon Templar]: Well there are only three people who still have to choose, so there shouldn't be much of a problem.
2007-11-09 [Lepellier]: Atleast one of them has been gone for over 4 months, and I doubt they're returning.
2007-11-10 [Fireblade K'Chona]: well, if there's no need of me anymore, I guess I'll toddle off. Let me know if you ever start a new tournament, it's been fun! Toodles!
-stops watching page-
2007-11-10 [Nebka]: Probably a stupid question, but is there any way we could view the...um... "Old Posts" so I can work on getting back into my character?
2007-11-10 [Kai Crewger]: exactly! *points to above* please?
2007-11-13 [Elisha Kelly]: I do agree, it would be nice :) -- and I am curious as to how everyone else went in the last round :D
2007-11-14 [Lepellier]: Hah, thanks Blood, thanks for looking right past me.
2007-11-16 [Lothuriel]: I am curious. Is this ever going to continue again or is it something that has been swept under the rug?
2007-11-16 [iippo]: There's two people who haven't chosen their character yet.
2007-11-16 [Elisha Kelly]: are we gonna wait for someone who hasn't been seen in over 200 days, or are you gonna set a time limit :) -- is curious -- and excited -- and a teeny bit impatient.
2007-11-17 [Talkris]: I'm actually getting kind of excited for this. To be honest, I almost forgot about it.
2007-11-17 [NamelessMerc]: 0.0; I wanna go now now now now now!
*Has had way too much coffee*
2007-11-18 [Lepellier]: Well, 1 left, and she's been gone for over 200 days.
2007-11-20 [Jeesum Crowe]: Patience, people, jeez.
2007-11-20 [Kai Crewger]: *pokes the caffeinated*
2007-11-22 [Jeesum Crowe]: *falls asleep because she is decaffeinated.
2007-11-27 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: o_o ahh there was a change.. whats happening?? lol sorry i've been away a while and i have no idea whats going on could anyone explain please? (sorry for being a bother)
2007-11-27 [SilverFire]: The people still listed, (yas, you're thar :p) are through to the next round. That's all that's happened at the moment. :) Since you only have one character, you don't need to do anything - others had to choose which character they wanted to play this round.
2007-11-27 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: ahh cool ^__^ thank you.. i had a panic moment because i haven't checked any of my watched wiki's in the last couple of weeks! XD
2007-11-28 [NamelessMerc]: =[ Why ishn't Blondie here no more? It'd be a hell of a lot easier if she was >.<
2007-11-28 [Lepellier]: *agrees* She's been gone for 2/3rds of a year, and now were just waiting hoping she'll suddenly decide to log on...
2007-11-28 [Jeesum Crowe]: So, this is pretty much over, then. :P
2007-11-28 [SilverFire]: Actually we're waiting because I have two essays due in in a week. ;) After then, we'll continue whether she's come back or not.
2007-11-28 [Lepellier]: alright, atleast we have a better excuse now. :P
2007-11-28 [Jeesum Crowe]: Let's wait until next year :p
2007-11-28 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: lolz! yeah.. although to be fair i would be worse if i ran this place.. you would NEVER see the end off it... a round every 2 years.. coz i'm laaazy! =P
2007-11-29 [Lepellier]: Well, we had some that I was using...that we wanted to wait on someone who was missing for 200+ days...but anyhow.
2007-11-29 [Elisha Kelly]: I vote to wait till after new years, people are going away on holidays etc, christmas is always so busy! :)
2007-11-29 [Jeesum Crowe]: That's what I meant.
2007-11-29 [Elisha Kelly]: I know :D I was just adding my vote (assuming that this is a democratic wiki)
2007-11-29 [SilverFire]: Which it isn't. ;)
2007-11-29 [Jeesum Crowe]: No, I mean, I thought someone might think I meant next school year, but I did mean next year... year...
2007-11-29 [Elisha Kelly]: thats alright [Jeesum Crowe] *hugs* we shall just have to sit here and bear the oppressive power of the wiki gods, and pray they are merciful, and not continue onto the next stage of this contest until the harrowing silly season has passed us! (:P
2007-11-30 [Aradon Templar]: Wow. People actually hoping stuff doesn't happen. I think that's a great idea, sure way to get what you want: to want what's sure to happen :)
2007-11-30 [NamelessMerc]: Bah on thy essays, anyhow Silvie! I managed to write 2,500 words in 3 hours =p
Therefore you have time. The Lord hath spoken <.<; >.>;
2007-11-30 [Blood Raven]: lol, go NamelessMerc ^^"
Your essay writing skills are truly 1337 indeed =P
2008-01-01 [Grengo]: Wee last group (b-.-)b
2008-01-02 [Lepellier]: woo, g. 2. and only one person I've ever RP'd with before.
2008-01-02 [Kai Crewger]: hey, sweet. I know a few of you *waves to armyboy*
2008-01-02 [Lepellier]: *waves to Kai* Hey my little RP compatriot.
2008-01-02 [NamelessMerc]: I know no one in my group *Weeps*
2008-01-02 [Elisha Kelly]: I only know the lovely calico :D so it will be interesting! :D
2008-01-02 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: i know no one! XD Which just makes it more fun.. but group I =/ SCARY!
2008-01-03 [Lerune]: I know Lothuriel, and her character, Vex, so it should be fun. I've never RPed Shelzeraan with him, so I am excited. She was put in here strictly for shock factor. I can't wait. =oP
2008-01-07 [iippo]: Hokae, heads up first and second groupies (groupers?), your round starts off on Monday, 14th of January (if 14th for some reason isn't a Monday after all, it'll be the Monday closest to the 14th - I am known to make this date-day mistake often) :P So get your game socks together during this week, to be ready to commence on Monday the 14th. :)
2008-01-07 [Lepellier]: Well, it just so turns out the 14th is a monday here.
2008-01-07 [iippo]: But knowing me, I'll show up a day early or summat... :P
2008-01-07 [Kai Crewger]: hurrah! *puts on her rp'in shoes*
2008-01-07 [Nebka]: cool, I can't wait to see what kind of situation you guys put us in this time around.
2008-01-14 [Elisha Kelly]: *dons her game face* lets do this!
2008-01-14 [Lepellier]: Aaaaaand: It's game day!
2008-01-14 [Veltzeh]: We players get a message saying where the game is, right?
2008-01-14 [iippo]: Yeah. I'm trying to get a hold of Silvie to sort everything out... Hopefully stuff will happen later today. :/
2008-01-15 [NamelessMerc]: 0.0; *Imitates Mortal Kombat* It Has Begun.
2008-01-15 [iippo]: Flawless Victory. :3
2008-01-28 [SilverFire]: Okie third and fourth groups, your round starts on Wednesday the 30th Jan. get ready. >:3
2008-01-30 [Nite_Owl]: Oh damn I completely forgot about all this :o I hardly even remember my character...oo
2008-01-30 [Jeesum Crowe]: I'm gonna be gone from Feb. 1-3 on vaca. And then I have school & work on the 4th.
2008-01-30 [iippo]: Shh, I faffed already. :P
2008-01-30 [Elisha Kelly]: o.O *zips lips*
2008-01-30 [SilverFire]: It was noticed, Elysiann.
2008-01-31 [Elisha Kelly]: I don't know why, but that statement makes me feel somewhat naked 0.0
2008-01-31 [iippo]: *gives underwear*
2008-02-01 [Elisha Kelly]: Yay! underwear!!
2008-02-01 [Talkris]: I've been wondering, are our groupings chosen at random or is it planned out? (This isn't a complaint, just a curiosity.)
2008-02-01 [SilverFire]: Randomly.
2008-02-01 [iippo]: The winner will be chosen randomly too :P j/k
2008-02-01 [NamelessMerc]: Damn, I knew it! It's a conspiracy! 0.0;
2008-02-01 [Talkris]: I kind of figured, but just wanted to make sure. Okay then.
2008-02-01 [SilverFire]: I'm sorry, would you have preferred it if we fixed it? :(
2008-02-01 [Talkris]: No, not at all. Like I said, not a complaint, just a curiosity. ^_^
2008-02-10 [NamelessMerc]: Good luck to everyone in my group =]
Meant to comment the page but forgot to before it was locked XD
2008-02-10 [Talkris]: Good luck ^_^
2008-02-10 [SilverFire]: Comments were taken off those pages anyway. :P
2008-02-10 [Talkris]: That was a lot of fun though. To just have the writing and no comments. It was different and refreshing. ^_^
2008-02-20 [iippo]: And last but not least, group V playing dates are 25th of February - 5th of March!
2008-02-21 [Jeesum Crowe]: Werd.
2008-03-04 [Lothuriel]: I am currently limited to my work computer. I will do my part in the rp in the morning March 5, around 10 am USEST! Hope that will do.
2008-03-04 [Lepellier]: Woo, tomorrow closes round 3, good luck, all.
2008-03-05 [Grengo]: Well, someone left in the last party suddenly for some weird reason, so it's kind of in limbo at the moment <_<
2008-03-05 [Jeesum Crowe]: Just ignore it and keep going. Silvie & iippo can deal with the random, public exit... *shrugs*
2008-03-05 [Lerune]: We had someone duck out of of ours, too, sadly. =o(
2008-03-05 [Silverbullet]: We had one that never showed up
2008-03-08 [Jeesum Crowe]: So, see ya'll again in 6 mos. :P
2008-03-08 [Kai Crewger]: aye aye *salutes*
2008-03-08 [iippo]: *tickels Jeesum* Cheeky :P
2008-04-13 [Grengo]: What's the story, morning glory?
2008-05-04 [SilverFire]: Would the players please select which character they're going t use, please.
2008-05-04 [Lerune]: Oh, wow -- fantastic! Let me think on exactly which character I want for the finale, I'll underline my decision later on today. =o)
2008-05-04 [Grengo]: Weee. Cool. I'm still undecided, though choosing Rei for now.
2008-05-04 [Silverbullet]: Woot! Go Nameless and Grengo!
2008-05-05 [NamelessMerc]: =D I made it!!! I'm going to decide later on my character, though, when I've given it plenty of thought. Congrats everyone else who made it!
2008-05-05 [Jeesum Crowe]: Congratulation
2008-05-06 [NamelessMerc]: Sticking with my favourite; he's seen me this far, I can't abandon him now.
2008-05-06 [Lerune]: Mel's one of my oldest, most cherished characters...s
Sorry it took me so long to decide, I've really been lamenting over this for days. =/
2008-05-06 [itoe]: I presume my choice is obvious ^_~.
2008-05-06 [SilverFire]: S'cool, you've got plenty of time anyway. June was the first opportunity where iippo and I weren't completely swamped with deadlines and exams. ._.
2008-05-06 [Sturmi]: can we watch?
2008-05-06 [Silverbullet]: Good question! :D
2008-05-06 [SilverFire]: I believe iippo and I decided that the final round would be open for everyone to watch. But don't hit me if I'm wrong. :P
2008-05-06 [Calico Tiger]: As much as I'd like to watch, it's probably best to keep outside distractions out of it. We all love to chat with eachother, it'd be a pain to keep track of who was getting coaching, even if it wasn't meant as much "Omgwtf lol you should totally <blahblah> that <blahblah>" or "Wow, I'd have <enter action here>". It influences the contestants no matter what our intentions :)
However, I'd totally love to see the actual various roleplay sessions when it's all over to see how things went with everyone!
2008-05-06 [Calico Tiger]: Of course, that's also just my opinion, hehe XD
2008-05-06 [Nite_Owl]: Yeah, I think opening the different sections afterwards would be interesting, so everyone could see what went down before the final draw :)
2008-05-07 [SilverFire]: We weren't planning to let you comment. O.o
2008-05-07 [Sturmi]: right, just watch. Erase the comment box. Would be cool.
2008-05-08 [Nite_Owl]: What Sturmi said :)
2008-05-09 [iippo]: People watching is coo' with me. And yes, the previous games will be opened for later and all entries will go into some kind of history/docume
2008-05-20 [iippo]: Does any of you entrants have a problem pushing the beginning date up to the 28th of May? One contestant is traveling on the 7th and it'd be nice for him to have a bit more time. Anyone object?
2008-05-20 [Grengo]: I'm fine with it.
2008-05-20 [itoe]: Fine by me.
2008-05-21 [Lerune]: Okay by me as well. =o)
2008-05-22 [Elisha Kelly]: goodluck everyone in the final round :D
2008-05-26 [NamelessMerc]: No objections as long as no one minds me having a distinct lack of internet access at the moment.
I can't connect to my home's wireless network, yet I can connect to every other network without a problem. Go figure. Bloody technology.
Side-note: With the opening of the pages, will there be a judge's commentary of some description? Just so people can improve their roleplaying.
2008-05-26 [iippo]: Err, I sort of mind you having a lack of internet. :P
Hmm, probably not open commentary, no. In ET there isn't a culture of critiqueing unless it is asked for, so I don't think I'd want to just impose my opinions on people. If it's asked for, I don't mind giving comments. :3
2008-05-26 [SilverFire]: I don't mind comments either as long as people bear in mind that I'm not renowned for having a sugar-coated way of speaking, and don't get too upset if I'm blunt. :P Any idea when you're likely to have better internet access, Merc?
2008-05-28 [NamelessMerc]: I can access from university computers, so I can get one once a day at best/worst. I don't think it should be that much of a problem, I'll just log in for a bit every day.
2008-05-28 [thoughtfox]: so when is the round going to start?
2008-05-28 [SilverFire]: Tomorrow - iippo's internet has buggered itself for today (but will be fixtered tomoy).
2008-05-29 [NamelessMerc]: Wheeeeeeeeeee postiness!
And not the type with stamps!
2008-05-30 [iippo]: All of sudden I'm getting stage fright and very conscious of what I'm posting :P
2008-05-31 [NamelessMerc]: XD I was at first. Oh, and side-note: Internet has returned!!!
2008-06-03 [Lerune]: Hehe, I am thoroughly enjoying this so far -- this week has been hectic for me and I keep struggling to find time to post, but I'm on it! Thankfully, Melinkale is not one to get up in arms, and he's pretty content smoking his pipe and watching for the moment. =oP
2008-06-03 [thoughtfox]: Yes, I quite love your character, Lerune. So aloof to everything. I suppose I'm sometimes like that in reality.
2008-06-03 [NamelessMerc]: I'm enamoured with Rei XD right down to his speech. He's a great character.
2008-06-03 [Lothuriel]: It sucks I couldn't participate in the last round. No computer. But, I am excited to see who comes out on top! Good luck guys!
2008-06-04 [Lerune]: I'm loving all the characters. XD And thank you for the compliment on Melinkale -- he's a firm believer than nothing is difficult. Things are always easy, if you break it down. Makes him a little annoying at times. ;)
2008-06-06 [thoughtfox]: Tomorrow I embark on a journey to the far end of the world... sigh. I shall return soon enough ^_^
2008-06-09 [iippo]: We can continue, since he's passed out at the moment anyway. It's not like this is a super-speedy game anyway :P
2008-06-10 [thoughtfox]: Yes, do continue. I've landed safely and am starting to find my way around here, so I should be able to access the web once a day. And give poor Eresth some time to rest ;)
2008-06-11 [NamelessMerc]: I've placed a short post, but that's going to be my only one for the next day or so, as my laptop is at my girlfriend's house and I can't get up there because of work.
Sorry if that puts anyone out. >.<;
2008-06-11 [iippo]: Just do your best, everyone. :) We don't have a time-limit this round round either, so I don't have to ram my plot down your throats this round ^^;
2008-07-18 [NamelessMerc]: Fore-warning for everyone: 1st-18th of August I'll be in the South of France, several miles from any internet cafes. Apparently, the place has internet access, so I may be able to post, but if I disappear after the 31st you know I haven't been abducted by religious cultists and brainwashed into the worship of Cthulu.
2008-07-18 [iippo]: Noted, thanks :)
We'll do something brainy in the meanwhile then that would hurt Tethis' head if he had to take part :P
2008-07-18 [NamelessMerc]: Hm, theological discussions then :] He's pretty intelligent, at least tactically and politically XD
2008-07-18 [iippo]: Or magics discussion :P
2008-07-18 [Lerune]: Oh, God -- Melinkale would bore EVERYONE. So, if that happens, I apologize in advance. =oP When he starts in, I think of Han Solo calling C3PO the "Professor" in Star Wars. It fits Melinkale perfectly. =oP
2008-07-24 [Lerune]: I am having a hard time posting, for some reason. Three separate times now, I have tried to post and the changes I make when I edit will not be displayed when I submit. Not sure what is wrong, but I lost my original post, then rewrote it and have it saved. Once I figure out what the issue is, I'll get it up. =/
2008-07-24 [SilverFire]: Yeah, no one can edit wikis at the moment, or create new ones.
2008-07-24 [Lerune]: I figured that was the problem, and started looking for some information on it. =o)
If I had more time, I'd be up to date on these things before I comment, but I still wanted everyone to know I was trying. =oP
2008-07-31 [NamelessMerc]: Okay guys, today is D-Day for Tethis. This is my last login before I head off to France, so there's a 50% chance no one's gonna see me until the 18th/19th.
Just a reminder =]
2008-08-02 [NamelessMerc]: I have ze Net!!! I shall be free to post about once every 24 hours, whoo!!!
2008-08-02 [Calico Tiger]: Aren't you guys done yet? :P *shakes a fist at roleplayers*
2008-08-03 [Paul Doyle]: It'll only take them a minute . . . but it'll take them all year ;-)
2008-08-03 [NamelessMerc]: You can't hurry quality!! Then again, you can't force idiocy, either ;)
2008-08-12 [NamelessMerc]: =( Tethis is out, damnation!!!
2008-08-12 [Lerune]: I almost cried. ;_;
2008-08-13 [iippo]: I almost cried too :C
2008-08-22 [thoughtfox]: ^_^
have been very ill over the past week. quite a bad fever along with a cough, stopping me from those two things I like to do most.
2008-08-22 [Lerune]: Oh, poor thing. =o( Hope you're feeling better now.
2008-08-28 [iippo]: Just so you know everyone is on the same page, I'm waiting for Eresth.
2008-08-28 [Lerune]: I assumed as much. ^^
2008-09-05 [Lerune]: And just so we know, I was waiting for the GM to post, since Eresth had quite a lot of action in his post, I was afraid to move ahead just yet. If it's okay to post, I will, just wanted to give the moderators ample time to respond. =o)
2008-09-06 [thoughtfox]: Since Melinkale is leading the way, I'll wait for him to go in first. Environment does seem to be a bit lacking though.
2008-09-06 [Calico Tiger]: *sings* This is the contest that never ends. And it goes on and on my friend. Somebody started running it not knowing what it was. And they'll continue running it forever just because this is the contest that never.... errr... >_>
Serioiusly, though! You can keep roleplaying, after the contest ends, but when does it end? It's already set the record for the longest running official contest many times over x) *ducks from silvy*
I am going to get in so much trouble >:3
2008-09-06 [Paul Doyle]: Shari Lewis is rolling in her grave.
2008-09-08 [iippo]: Pah @ j00.
2008-09-08 [Lordterrex]: hey, would anyone be interested in reading a story I recently wrote. It is a short story, about 10 and a half pages on a word document, single spaced 12 font. I need editors!!.. (this is my first real art attempt.. im so scared)
2008-09-08 [iippo]: You're pretty off-topic here :P You'll probably be better off on a writing/critiq
2008-09-08 [Lordterrex]: ahh.. but everyone here loves RP, which in my estimation means a good number of them like storys. ^_^ I am simply doing what I can.
2008-09-09 [iippo]: But there's a time and place for everything, and this isn't the time nor place for anything that isn't related to the official roleplaying tournament.
2008-09-13 [Lerune]: Ooh, [thoughtfox] and [iippo], I have a question. Tethis was carrying the hammer, and I had thought of it earlier on, but I was actually concerned that it had disappeared with him, as we were never told if it was actually still there once he vanished. I kinda made a point in my post right after to dwell on Tethis, both because he had really made himself familiar by then to the characters and also to see if there was anything we missed after he passed. I'll read back over it again to make sure I didn't miss some vague reference to the hammer, but I hesitate to post, not knowing for sure about it. =/
2008-09-13 [Lerune]: I've had a family emergency of epic proportions arise (see diary entry for more detail) and I'll be slow on the responses, I hope everyone understands. =/
2008-09-14 [thoughtfox]: oh dear... hope all goes well Lerune. Worry not, we is patient children ^_^
2008-09-15 [iippo]: The hammer is still in the world, it didn't vanish with Tethis.
And I pray everything gets better soon *huggles Lerune*
2008-09-30 [thoughtfox]: I think we're all waiting for Joseph or for the light to return
2008-09-30 [Lerune]: Yar. =o)
2008-10-01 [iippo]: So sorry for the lag! Life-thing ran me over with a three-tonne truck >.<
2008-10-01 [Lerune]: No worries at all. I was there all of last month. X_x
2008-10-01 [thoughtfox]: yep, that truck is heading upon a long route over all of us.
2008-10-01 [Lerune]: I bet it's a street-sweeper
2008-10-11 [thoughtfox]: ah, what a close ^_^ congrats, fantastic game :)
2008-10-11 [Lerune]: That was an amazing end. I am really going to miss it...I loved checking in several times a day to make sure I hadn't missed anything. ^^
2008-10-13 [NamelessMerc]: I'm going to miss seeing it change =[ Once I got knocked out it was even more fun to just watch and see where it was going.
2008-10-14 [iippo]: We should have a reunion sometime :P
Badges and winner announcements and all the rest of that stuff happen soonly.
2008-10-15 [thoughtfox]: aye... and it would be nice to see all the previous rounds, reflect upon where we all came from ^_^
2008-10-15 [NamelessMerc]: Reunion sounds good =D Maybe we should have another tournament...
After a short break, obviously <.<; >.>;
I also second the motion for viewing previous rounds!
2008-10-15 [SilverFire]: We already told you we'd open all the previous rounds at the end of the tournament, so I don't know why you're suggesting it like it's a new idea. :P
2008-10-16 [NamelessMerc]: Because we can XD
2008-11-03 [Tekkon KinKreet]: so erm, the contest is over, where on the wide interwebs can i find the previous stuffs?
