The idea of being called a Constable makes me giggle, so let's go with that.

Also, a uniform idea i had is somewhat similar to what Yejix already wears on a habitual basis. Matching cargo pants and vest with mythril pauldrons on the vest, kevlar weave in both garments treated to be fireproof and acidproof with rank pips on the right side of the collar. standard military boots, a standard grendelhide belt with silver buckle that has a cuff pouch, ammo clip pouch and standard sidearm, as well as a sheathe for a sword (just in case). All uniforms would be jinxed to resist most low-level magickal attacks.

I can have Yejix fund all this and even do the designing and weapons issuing: he -does- have a massive surplus he needs to put to use. PM me with what you think we should be outfitted with standardly and i'll see if he has it in stock.

I completely agree with both of you. Constable is what I'm used to - it's what we call our beat cops back home, after all - and it does indeed produce giggles. So, Constable it is.

Also, another thing I've been thinking about: how many of you have read Terry Pratchett's Disc World series? If not, YOU MUST! I'd suggest starting with "Guards! Guards!" because you will see some of that material again. Smile

I'll second this. Constable sounds more formal and feeds rather nicely into Lucky taking things too formal. It's his first time after all, can't blame the big guy for being nervous.

Whatever uniform we agree on, Lucky's isn't complete without a Barney Fife hat. It's also less painful than pinning it to his fur.

I've been collecting them, and Guards! Guards! is in my stack of next to read. As soon as I'm done reading the book I'm reading now, I'll pick that one up so that I can get myself educated. Wink

Yay Inventory Items! Everyone signed up so far with the Precinct One Watch House should have a nifty, sparkly badge in their inventories. If you haven't received it, lemme know ASAP!

I'm looking at sometime next week to do our first training session - possibly Thursday after Neo's shift is over. If this won't work for you guys, give me a time that will and we'll see what we can do.

And finally, as David and Riley found out last night, sometimes it's better for the Watch to have a partner, so ideally, I'd like to have two Watch...er...people? on each shift. If you currently play a Watch member or if you've always wanted to, please let me know and sign up for a shift. You'll have my undying gratitude, respect and a nifty, sparkly badge of your own! How can you pass that up? Wink

In an effort to not further clutter up The Governor's Office folder, I plan on moving the "Avengers Assemble!" thread and the "Diamond Files" to a new forum so that it can be moderated by the Avengers and managed there. "The Initiative" thread will remain in the Governor's office folder, as it should. Smile

I figured that the OOC boards and the regular sub-forum could get very cluttered with Avengers stuff, and I want to avoid that. I'll give it a few days for anyone to object before I make a formal request. So far, I plan on having Wolvie and Diamond as admins. If anyone else wants to jump in as a mod, please send me a PM.

Given that the Avengers SL has received such a large following, I approve of this idea. And maybe... If things work out well and the admins do decide to give The Government its own super folder in the future, your Avengers folder can be added to the collection. You've done an amazing job setting up this branch of the government, Wolvie! And all of you involved in the SL are amazing. I'm glad we've provided something that a large number of people can sink their role-playing teeth into and enjoy! Very Happy

Yes. We will be discussing your kits and uh...other stuff, right after Neo's shift is done at 11 Eastern. See y'all then!

Just an FYI...

The Force is something that can be researched if anyone needs to know more about it. It's a Star Wars thing, for those without a clue --- okay really someone might be clueless, you never know. Razz

Anyway. Or you can ask me and I'll try to explain it for those that don't quite get how to play with it. I know it can be confusing, but please do ask if you don't understand anything. I'd be glad to try and explain.

For example: The Force does not trickle into anything. It does not Taste anyone's powers. The Force is already in and a part of Everything from one degree to the next. Being Force sensitive allows you to see the Force and to manipulate or guide it to various uses depending on training depth.

And when Leun is using it to sense her surroundings, that doesn't mean she's trying to automatically bust into anyone's thoughts. It just means she's using to see everything around her, all the obsticles and what people are doing, without using her eyes or having to be in direct line of sight. She can feel emotions coming off of others, unless it's stated in the play that they are shielded. She can also pick up surface thoughts if the Force flows that way, or the thoughts are broadcast that loud. One could say that the Force has a will of its own sometimes. Which means, it's whatever I want to do with it. So if your character puts thoughts out there and you don't state a shield over them, Leun could possibly pick them up without even really trying.

Hope that helps. If not, PM me and we'll deal with it there.

While it's fabulous that you play it that way, other people could have a different interpretation of "The Force" and how it is used. Also remember that some people will not recognize or play into your particular vision of the Force and what can and can't be done with it.

I understand being irritated over details of a story you love so much, and wanting every little detail just so but this (RhyDin) being a place where you can do or be anything, you just have to adjust to some people doing whatever they want with the Force, and other things.
Just the way it goes.

Good luck to ya!

First, I never said I was irritated. Second, people are entitled to their opinion and I'm fully aware that people have different views and ways of playing in RhyDin and I do try to respect that for their characters ... which was the reason of the post, to explain a little of mine and open the door to other means of discussion so as not to clutter the board. FYI, this ain't my first rodeo. If they don't want to respect the way I play it for my character, then that would be showing how rude they are. I don't know about anyone else, but I get no enjoyment out of playing with rude people.

Personally I want to thank Leuni, for posting what she did with the heads up, and more so commend her for it. It can be hard playing a charrie with canon, at times. She has provided not only a geniune explanation of her abilities, but also an 'out' for anyone who does not wish to play in regards to those abilities.

The 'Force' to Jedi and Sith, and more so, those who are force sensitive, is indeed a part of everything, and can be manipulated by them, as well.
Now there are also 'outs' to anything and everything, so if you have a charrie and you do not want them to be effected by the Force, so be it. And no issue. Just talk with her, and I am sure all will be handed in a good manner, and play can resume.

She had already made ready to adjust to the whims and wishes of other players, who may not want to play 'force' related issues, by asking them to PM her.

So all is well.

I do not believe Aja was trying to be rude by any means, as well. More so, she was offering a realistic feel of how some players may come across in dealing with things.

The name of the game is options, and Leuni has offered that to anyone ahead of time, and that is the best way to deal with things, all around.

Thanks again.

No one carries the exact same definition when it comes to ambiguous entities like "The Force" or "Magick". So results will vary.

Leun offered how she plays out her interpretation, Aja's player acknowledged that and issued not every player will take it that way. Of course when you're playing something canon, it coems with its own set of problems if two uber-fans get their schwartz twisted.

Once someone takes a character that's developed from an established story/world, canon, if you will, they are no longer really playing within that canon. They are playing their interpretation of it. Otherwise, every Jedi that falls in love, marries, etc. is doomed to Vader's fate. Harry Potter will never marry Hermione Granger and so on.

::giggles:: Depends which way the schwartz gets twisted. Sorry, couldn't resist. Laughing

Yeah, I've had some conversations, both good and bad, with other uber fans and for the most part we've had some wonderful times smoothing out the wrinkles of our different views and ways of using what was once cannon material ... One in particular I really miss a lot right now. One of the few I've had the pleasure of playing with who never made the ironing a chore. It was always, always a pleasure. When I grow up, I wanna be just like that someday. Cool

Anyway, I've always said that where there is a will to work things out, there's a way to make it work although rarely is it ever accomplished without some give and take on all sides.

And thanks, Brian, for your post. You really put it awesomely.

Thank you, Brian. No. I wasn't trying to be rude in anyway. I apologize if it was taken that way.

It's good to give people a heads up about your character's particular talents, especially if they will affect game play.
Thanks.
Cheers!

Permission isn't at all necessary. Though the people involved in the Government SL right now are heavily incorporating the Watch into their stories and role-play, these people are not the creators of the idea of the Watch and therefore do not own it as intellectual property. The Watch itself was in play long before the Ministries started using it themselves and putting a bigger emphasis on them. So it's nothing to worry yourself about.

The only part of the Watch that "we" have ownership over are our own characters who are involved with the Watch. If you were to have referenced one of these individual characters (Neo, Riley, Jin, etcetera) without first asking, then it would be something to contest. Otherwise it's fair game, so enjoy!
