Yes, late again, I know, but for everyone's information, I did have this all written down by the date I said I would, so technically...

Anyways, this is the OoC topic for the Weaver RP Something Old, Something New, hosted by moi. The SOSN RP will only be open to Dinowoman (Ute), myself (Icarus), and CrazyDitto (to be introduced). I'm posting a rough outline of the plot here for everyone to see, as it seems that would be a rather easier way for everyone to know what's going on. Given the relative small number of people involved and the frequency of times during which their chars are separated, this RP should be a little easier overall, as you'll be able to describe your characters actions and surroundings many times without worrying about interfering with another character.

The skeleton plot is as follows:

I.) Icarus asks Ute aside to help it with a project.
1.) It's a "secret" project.
2.) They make a jump by themselves.
a.) Colorado Springs, Colorado; 2024

II.) Military detects Weaver duo
1.) Ute, Icarus captured
2.) Reader's crossover
a.) Reader captured
b.) Reader, Icarus, Ute meet up

III.) Breakout
1.) Breakout and escape from Cheyenne Mountain Extended Facility
2.) Return to Midgard Below

Yes, I changed the date. CrazyDitto, if you don't mind not posting until after Icarus and Ute have jumped to Colorado Springs, that may be best, even though they don't meet up until the end of Part II. Everybody keep in mind that this is the first time that we will be seeing a crossover in an RP. As I understand it, that's a big deal. No pressure CD. :P

Anyways, any questions before we begin? If not, let me know by posting and I'll start the RP.

No questions at this point. I'm sure questions will arise as we proceed, but I'll just PM you or see you on MSN as and when necessary.

Well if it's pertaining to the RP and others could benefit from it, do post it here. That's what an OoC thread is for, after all.

Obviously if it was something of general relevance I'd post it here.

I started out defining these in a ((OoC)) heading at the top of my post, but there ended up being so many that it would be more apt to do so here. It's a little explanation on the various military abbreviations/lingo used in my post.

EDaRNet = "Extra-Dimensional Radiation Network" - An experimental detection system. There is one over each continent, most consisting of 4 sats. It was launched in correspondence with the EDaR testing being conducted in the US and China. China has it's own system, both of which monitor nearly the entire world, but or prone to misoperation.

LAE-DiP = "Local Area Event Distortion Phenomenon" - What the Riftweavers generally refer to as the distorting effects associated with a hole.

TEO = "Technical Equipment Operator" - Replaced the position of RTO in the United States Armed forces in 2014.

IRIS = "Infrared Identification System" - A one up on the IR (Infrared) tabs used by the US armed forces today.

This is really a general 'Weavers query rather than something specific to this RP, but it's probably particularly relevant to this one, since you say our chars will frequently be separated. Do the 'Weavers carry communication devices? I presume we must have some means of keeping in touch but there's been no mention of anything so far.

Eh, that question'd fall to Mage. I know Icarus is rather likely to have some sort of anything in the backpack, but as for the Weavers in general, no clue. Personally, it makes sense, but I could imagine better storytelling without such.

I think it could offer some very interesting possibilities if they can't keep in touch with each other, but the idea of a relatively hi-tech group like the Riftweavers not being able to communicate when they're apart sounds a little hard to believe. I'll consult Mage.

I may be unavailable for an indeterminate amount of time, starting today. If you're up to it, Zeth, feel free to wing it.

That's a shame. :(

And I consulted Mage about the communicators. She said we would normally carry them. (But Icarus and Ute have just had everything confiscated, so we're in the "better storytelling" situation. :P )

Weeeell, I suppose we can keep going for a bit, but Icarus and Ute need to meet the Reader while in captivity, so we'll need to stop at some point if you aren't back to post the Reader's crossover (and subsequent apprehension, which I'll play part of as the military). It may or may not be necessary for a huge make up post to be posted by you when you get back.

I said "may", not "will". :[

I can sneak in a few hours, though you shouldn't expect much verbosity in return.

Well, at the moment, there isn't much for us to do outside Ike and Ute describing their nice, cozy cells when they wake up. Do, just whenever you able to get that crossover in there, it'd be good. And if you need to put in some more posts leading up to it, let us know, and we'll try and put some filler posts in for you.

Ah, CrazyDitto, I was, um, hoping you might handle the interview and subsequent discover of powers, reobtaining her book, etcetera yourself...

Crap.

Uh, I'll get it done sometime later. Writer's block is being especially unkind to me at this time. :\

Well, just keep in mind that once you've accomplished that, the escape can begin, and we'll enter the final leg of this RP.

Yes, she does.

Just use the info I gave you via MSN.

At the rate this is going, I am obligated to inform you that I will be away for a week, starting Saturday, for...recreational purposes.
