Enshadu will move up to confront the three, his left hand shifting into a long black claw with pincers. He'll speak out. Heh...you three think you're so tough! Gonna execute me? Hehe. I was waiting to test out my new body...Elexxion remade me ya know? (They had the technology.) Now These nanobots re-shift my hands into any weapon, and I got more protection under my very skin. So, you three going to pick a fight, do it with me. I know I can at least kill one of you...
    Hey noodle? There aren't three people. There are only two, Magtok and Jeanne, formerly disguised as Errol Flynn and Jean the first mate, and now disguised as Pumpkin and Honey Bunny from Pulp Fiction. Also, without saying what your specially designed eye can do, or what your black burst does, I can't really respond.

    If Noodle would kindly post in Louv're Tower to say whether the Lounger escapes, I can then have him run into BDD and make his report (or not) so we can get this show on the road.

    True, but they already decided on a course of action and haven't posted in a while, so I sorta assume they're (IC) disinterested in the hellish reinforcements.

    Actually, in just about any military organization slapping someone is an instant 'you lose the argument' card. Superior or inferior, it's assault and you're quite likely to be handed a dishonorable discharge over it.

    In theory anyway. In practice, superior officers can get away with darn near anything.

    So then in AMEN, you get commendations for it right?

    I generally consider the 'lost it' phrase to be pretty heavy rage/out of one's right mind.

    Yeah, purty much. I just figured that as Roxane obviously had a rather military mindset, her belief that Ilpholin had 'lost it' might be based upon the military standard.

    Which AMEN manages to nearly duck under, as it does with all standards.

    What do you mean a single backhand? A single super-powered backhand? Is that how any rational mind would treat a tangible person outside of a fictional setting? Is that how you'd treat an employee in the real world? I'd like to think not! I'd like to hope not! And would you allow for something like that to happen to you? Again, I'd like to hope not!

    Why in the world would a semi-realistic character tolerate it? That and being yelled at. Over something silly but showy and purposeful.

    "You fail to take several items into account."

    "A) I've a system to alert me if projectiles are inbound or seismic activity that humans cannot sense is detected."

    "B) The hole we dug had already been excavated once by The Hatter in a drilling machine. And it did happen onscreen. "

    C) My player is under a metric ton of pressure and really doesn't like these scenes where his character is on the receiving end of extreme flak. You don't even try to see where I'm coming from."

    "I get it. I said that I'd ask your permission before sneezing. Okay?"

    "So if you don't think I can train your henchpeople, that's fine with me. There's no point to speaking with you. You lecture. You don't talk. So... Have fun with that. I've no incentive to stay here. Thing is, your organization was a free bunk and that was about it. No salary. Nothing. 'S a queendom. I was hoping that I'd establish rapport with someone here. That clearly isn't happening."

    "And here's a tip. Mocking people will get you nowhere. You've no previous military experience. You aren't my superior."

    "Unless you'd like to hit me again, I think I'll take my leave. But if you want to hit me again, the first shot is free. The second, not so much."


    So...

    I've a question OoC. Is this going to be how AMEN officially reacts to fooling around from now on? Like unauthorized wanton destruction fooling around? If so, I think most of my characters will move on. I don't want to deal with IC drama like that every time Clarissa razes a building in Inside. Maybe it is fun for other players to rp. It just makes me upset.

    Lawful evil/neutral. Pfft! Chaotic evil is what I'm after.
    Alright, there seems to be issues with this whole scene I suppose.

    Firstly, Ilpholin never once yelled. Secondly, B doesn't really count when Ilph planted the defenses way after that. The super-power was just so it had any weight at all compared to what you described as hitting a tank. Moving on to more important points...

    This isn't the real world. This is fictional. Ilpholin is a drow and I do try to get her to act like one. Maybe I fail miserably. I'm not a real drow expert. But I do tend to think that by drow standards, Ilph's actions were supposed to be a slap on the wrist, but Roxanne escalated things by continuing to back-talk her. Again, maybe I'm terribly off. I can be really bad at these things.

    Also if you're under a lot of pressure and don't want to deal with flak, (which you seemed to indicate in your location tags that you knew was coming) please inform me much earlier in the scene so I can work with you accordingly. Or even just PM me beforehand and I'll try to work something out with you.

    Ilpholin doesn't care much about wanton destruction. I mean Clarissa already ran off on a murder spree before and she didn't say anything as far as I know. She does care when the base gets practically emptied and no one even thinks to inform her first.

    Anyways. I guess I'm sorry if things turned out badly. I can do some pretty big screw ups at times. Let me know how we can work this out.

    Very much like this idea, it sounds like a lot of fun to roleplay the makings of a stage group. Hollow Hill being a sponsor sounds fun as well. Stageside has my vote.

    An then I saw Keveak in the sorting hat and you are just the cutest thing when you want to be. My gosh look at that. It's squee-inducing.

    So, I should go put a Wall post up, then?

    What I should have jotted down is that I simply don't have the strength to rp scenes like that. I don't enjoy them at this stage in life. When I started posting for that scene...things were different. Trust me, there's enough fighting and tension where I'm living IRL. Some of that pent up stress and aggression probably spilled into that post. My bad. I've never been good about unleashing my negative emotions constructively. >.< That's why I haven't been posting for weeks at a time. I'm all about the lols and the puns and maybe some seriousness every once in awhile. But not getting verbally totaled IC. Especially getting spoken to negatively (read in the yelled at thing; my mistake; the whole "never" thing led me astray because I thought it was setting the tone of the speech) by a character who I don't want to take on because the way I envision my character combating the other character is, well, cheap (derp; meant "I" here not "you" >.<). Roxanne is all about guns. Guns in close combat. Broken bones. Pressure points. Jump/jet-packs thrusting to add extra oomph to punches. I've lost nearly every combat scene I've participated in! Why? I don't want to see a character die just because I think mine is stronger (not that I'm implying that I believe Roxanne is stronger than Ilph; 's more like I'd rather not find out unless sparring was the order of the day). Sure, it is quirky! Sure, it may not be smart! But it feels right to me, and that's what matters. And I don't want a character of mine to shoot at Ilpholin, but not doing so in combat without a gimmick that I've had time IC to setup would betray the personality of the character I've tried creating. And failed at. Twice. Once with AMEN, and once a long, long time ago with a sort of similar character and Remnant.

    And soldiering. Yes. The method of "breaking" the troops was outlandish. Even I thought it was odd when I conceived it! But I was working under the impression that Cyan was afraid of his own shadow. The henchmen have been killed by the members so many times that it is a running gag. What do you guys think it would've taken to restore the spirit that the AMENites broke and crushed underfoot? I don't know. I really don't know. So I went with something crazy and thought, hey, I could use this for character development!

    >.< The purpose of the exercise was not to make the henchmen fear death as in eek! Oh noes! I'm dying! It was to forge a working relationship with death. To recognize that they could permanently die if AMEN was to fall but more importantly that Roxanne wasn't about to let them permanently die.

    And cloning chambers. I thought it would be disturbing but not dangerous to have the whole group outside!

    Again, my own fault. Might've worked out well in old AMEN but not new AMEN.

    But why isn't the thing about the buried defenses in the OP? I had no warning that those even existed until I had already begun the scene. Maybe it is in the OP and I just missed it. Wouldn't be the first time!

    The fictional remark wasn't meant to reflect on your character. It was meant to reflect on mine and why she'd thought that Ilphy had lost her bearing or her temper or some-such.

    The tank thing was a little...overmuch. I studied volumes of chemistry and spent an entire week researching boron carbide, which is the compound used for manufacturing tank shells. I'm a little attached to it. I almost wrote cement wall there. Not sure about the weight of the suit yet. I don't know if I want it to be deflective and lightweight, like Ornstein's armor in Dark Souls or heavy and protective, like Havel's armor. Well, Ornstein's helmet, at least. And I'd rather scale down the armor strength than scale up after I've already posted it somewhere, y'know? Weight distribution wise, I thought that pushing Roxanne would have been easier than backhanding her really hard. Debated giving her whiplash or sending her flying across the room from it. Or breaking the suit. 'Cause if you're hitting something that hard and it breaks, the momentum won't stop there. And if you're jabbing a helmet with enough force to dent it...

    You didn't screw anything up. If anyone messed up, it was me. I'm oversensitive sometimes and overthink these things more often than not. And I made the mistake of endeavoring to explain my characters actions IC which was categorized as back-talk. Which it was. Sort of. Wasn't meant to be disrespectful merely enlightening. I figured with the whole backhanding thing, Ilphy was boiling and required an explanation. And then that the given explanation wasn't good enough. Or that Ilph was looking for a fight. A fight Roxanne wasn't about to indulge her in. So Roxanne tried taking the moral high ground and saying "yo, backhanding me wasn't nice; people aren't going to follow you if you physically abuse them" in different words. When characters aren't receiving any amenities (yuk, yuk ) from an organization apart from "you can sleep here and eat this" in a world overflowing with potential for power and gain, being physically assaulted is a major deal-breaker. If the Nexus were dystopian, that'd be all anyone could ask for! But it is a land of opportunity. Why wouldn't she move on after being backhanded (which isn't at all like slapping someone; slapping connotes indignation, rage, derision, and/or intense emotions while backhanding connotes property and ownership and is fundamentally associated with the criminal element)?

    Again, it isn't that I have a problem with how you ran that scene. I was certain that Ilph was going to smack Roxanne and fire her. And that's fine! I just couldn't take the bickering. Not right now. And if my characters were going to be grilled routinely, I wanted to back out. Because I don't want to explode on anyone or anyone's characters and make somebody feel bad.

    Sorry!
