    Welcome! Welcome! Have a seat, take a drink, grab a bite, and relax! Here we can discuss all things Bound By Honor.

    Will assign a Special Discussion topic every so often to reflect something that happened In Game in between our general chatter, so look forward to that.

    Now here are the reposted rules for easy access, with an additional one added. One that is fairly important, so take note.



    Rules

    1) The TOS is All-Powerful as always
    2) Quality posts please. Paragraph or longer.
    3) Respect the GM otherwise you tread on dangerous ground.
    4) Absolutely no God-Moding, it will absolutely NOT be tolerated!
    5) As previously stated, feel free to ask questions at any time. Either in PM or in the OOC thread.
    6) Respect each other.
    7) IMPORTANT NOTE: I reserve the right to kill anyone at any time, though I will endeavor to PM you a forewarning before it occurs lest it is done as a punishment.
    8) Have fun or Die!
    9) For those players who must take a leave of absence for an extended period of time for any reason, whether vacation or Darth RL just acting up in some fashion, please inform me in PM so we're not all wondering!
    That time will be respected and your character left in peaceful limbo lest its an important scene.

    The flip side, aka the consequences for anyone who disappears without warning for an extended period of time: I will take control of your character as I want them to still be a part of the world and not just forgotten. There will be a small grace period where I will wait patiently, but if it is exceeded, I will take control. Again, if an important scene, I will control them till the scene is over with then begin the grace period before taking permanent control.

    Should this happen and you do re-appear somewhere down the line, I will gladly return them to you as they were yours and inform you of everything that occurred for them since you left.

    *****
    Current Discussion

    Now that everyone is beginning to meet, what are your current thoughts regarding other players' characters?

    *ambles in and slaps coins on the bartop for a bottle of highball* What a fine establishment, Elu! Tomorrow I'll be tackling the entirety of that long post you made; I haven't had time to read much more than just what you wrote up for Mimori. :p

    Thank ye Ktala. ;)

    *smoothly slides the highball on over to corinthia * Thank you as well and don't worry, I'm pretty sure you're not the only one who hasn't read the whole thing yet. Indeed, you don't have to if you don't want to. :p

    I hope you all enjoyed your specific sections. :D Took me a while to think of what I wanted to do for each at times. spacelady can attest to this as I'd sit staring at my computer screen muttering, "Come on, come on…" [face_laugh]

    it's well worth the entire read corinthia, took me two days to wade my way through it, but i enjoyed the whole thing.

    i definitely enjoyed mine elu. as seen by a 3.7k word response to akiva that's about to go up. i don't put that much effort into things if i don't enjoy them. ;)

    i can just see you doing that too...

    *sips my drink and wishes I knew where to find highball in America*

    I'm sure I'll enjoy the whole post. Mimori's part was amazing all on its own.

    By the way, if anyone is in need of any language/culture help, give me a holler here or in a PM. Japanese and Korean are my second and third languages, and I'd be happy to help anyone out.

    yes, it was indeed amazing. i suspect the level of quality in this game is going to be of the highly rarefied variety.

    i believe i will probably be taking you up on that offer at some point corinthia. i don't know that much about the language at all (china was where i ended up living for two years, so if it was based off of there i'd be fine), and i don't know a huge amount about the culture either.

    Between Xinsuke-ye & corinthia, you're in good hands. ;) But yes, if you need help with language and culture, I'm here to aid…but Shiraha-laosan is the resident Master I daresay.

    Perhaps I may have finally found my Japanese language teacher….corinthia-senfu? [face_batting]

    Lol, I would hardly consider myself a master in Japanese, let alone someone who could teach it, but I can offer advice and corrections. Better than I could hope to straight-up teach it. :p

    Also Elu, I keep confusing your "senfu" and "laosan" honorifics, because lǎoshī is teacher in Chinese and the lao throws me off, lol. But I'll get it down eventually.

    I admit I have so many languages crammed in my head that I often get them mixed up. I've tried using a mishmash of Japanese and Korean in both Japan and Korea before, lol. And now that I'm also trying to stuff in Portuguese and Russian, let alone all the other partial studying I've done of other languages.... It's a vat-sized melting pot of languages in my poor little brain.

    that... is an interesting conundrum to have on your hands corinthia. you sound like you're on the way to being like a woman i knew from finland. she spoke ten languages fluently, and was working on adding two more and a local dialect of chinese that had over 12 different tones.

    oh, btw, mandarin or cantonese?

    Compared to me corinthia, you're a master. So shhh. :p And yeah, its a new language after all (or whats shown of it) so it'll take time to get used to it. ;) Took me a bit to remember while I was still working on it and I made it up! Still, I highly respect you for your language mastery. Not many can do that.

    lol! yea... mandarin is tricky enough. the tones... yea. just the tones. cantonese is twice as bad. and then the dialects with ten, twelve and fourteen... just confusing. so very, very confusing.

    meh, i'm not so focused on it that i didn't get a post up. :p

    Lovely place, Darth_Elu! AND, wonderful first posts to those that have made them. =D= I've been rereading each character's lead-in by our almighty GM beforehand and my mind is just loving all this information and detail for each of you. =P~
