Well, I think I've let this go on long enough without saying anything.

It seems that this role-play community is pretty much on it's last leg. I'm fairly sure how it happened (I'm guessing the length of inactivity due to the 'ghost' event did it in for the most part) and I do feel fairly responsible that the place has had dust blowing around in it for the past month.

I really don't want to do this, but I'm thinking I'm going to have to for now. I am putting this role-play on hiatus for an unknown period of time. I'm not closing it, per se, as I did work hard to come up with the concept, plot, and so on for it and I don't want to just toss it to the side. However, we seem to have a problem getting new people to join in -- and I think I know exactly what said problem is. The game is set in an AU world, and people confused that with the characters being AU as well, so they ran straight over to reserve their characters ... then they realized that the characters weren't AU themselves and never came back. Either that or my very, very long reserve time block made them feel no sense of urgency to get an application in and thus, they forgot. I'm not positive.

I'm really sorry to do this to everyone, since I know a few of you are at least attempting to bring things back to life a little here, and I sincerely appreciate it. All of you are outright terrific role-players, and I'm dead serious when I say that I'm not just saying that because I'm the moderator here. I mean it. I loved everyone's characterizations of both original and canon characters, and that's what really made me so reluctant to put this place on hiatus. Seriously, there are certain role-players who play Tales characters in other RPs I'm in that seem completely OOC compared to the players here who play the same characters. I thank you very, very much for participating here and I really hope you all had a good time.

I especially want to apologize to the person who just applied for Asch here. I did see your application and was about to accept it the day you sent it in, but it was around that time that I realized that this place was going to need some official down-time and I didn't want to just accept you and say "oh, lol, RP's in hiatus, kthx". That would just be flat out rude. I just feel bad that you went through the process of filling out and sending in the application, just to have me do this. Again, I'm sorry for that.

I know I'll probably get some of you saying "don't apologize, it's alright!", but I guess I just feel the need to say it, whether it was my fault or not that things ground to a halt. If you want to keep your characters here in the off chance I manage to revive this place faster than I anticipate, then do so. If you think I'm just saying that it's on hiatus and that the place will never re-open again, then feel free to leave the communities. It's completely up to you and I won't be insulted or angry with you in any way, shape, or form.

Any open plots that are going on can be still seen through to the end, even with this hiatus going on. No new official plots will be enacted and no one new will be accepted, that's all. Also, none of the logs or posts will be deleted -- I just find deleting things like that to be silly and downright insulting to the players who participated in the logs and posts.

I just want to state that this role-play being put on hiatus has nothing to do with the other multi-fandom role-play I opened recently. I can very easily handle both role-plays at once, even if the other one was a lot more active than I anticipated right from the start. This one has been dying for a while, and until I find out how to fix this so that not only more people will be interested, but that the place will stay at least fairly active, it will be (as I said a bunch of times already) on hiatus.

As a final note, I want to thank both of my co-moderators, Madi and Rainie, for volunteering to help me out with this place. I really appreciated knowing that I had you two around to help me out when the need arises. I'm sorry that I pretty much did everything and made it seem as if you two just had a shiny title, though.

Thank you very much for playing here and I hope to bump into you all elsewhere in the role-playing world.

Kyio, the head moderator

Sorry about being quiet the past few days. Trying to make a long story short, I became unbelievably sick. I'm only now beginning to get better, thanks to tons of antibiotics and an inhaler from my doctor.

Unfortunately, it looks like the plot's mostly over... so I guess I missed it this time. XD;

Alright, time for a little update.

I finally got around to describing the skills the Original Characters have in the Skill List, and even then I couldn't get all of them. The only one I'm completely missing is 'Ninja', which is somewhat okay since now of the OCs are ninjas as of now.

Also, one thing that was kinda my fault -- please remember to use the Fast Friends Add when you join so that everyone is definitely on your list, just in case they miss an introduction made in the OOC. Just so that doesn't happen to any of the new applicants, I'm going to add that to the application page that and so I don't have to bring this up and it doesn't become an issue of any kind.

Lastly, the Guy On The Street will make an appearance tomorrow with a new event -- a non-battle one this time around that anyone can involve themselves in. What is it? ... Well, since I haven't worked out the details just yet, I guess we'll all find that out tomorrow, heh.

That's all!

I'm guessing I should have stated it outright, but as far as the 'invasion' thread goes I've been waiting until some of the males toss in a post about what's transpiring or been set up at the dorms for defensive purposes if anything at all. Heck, even a post stating that they're utterly oblivious would help. Whether the door is locked or barricaded and whatnot would be good...

Would be kind of dull of the girls could go exploring with no conflict!

Hey guys. I know I fail really hard for this, but... I'm taking Guy out of TA. There isn't really much of a reason for it save that Guy was really inactive, and it's unfair for me to keep him when there could be someone else who can play him so much better than I can.

Sorry again. It was nice RPing with you guys when I did! Please friend remove voidtempest?

Feb. 18th, 2008 @ 10:13 pm New Jobs!
Alright guys, just as I posted about a few days ago, there are now new jobs for non-students besides being a teacher. These jobs are as follows: School nurse, hall monitor, guidance counselor, custodian, secretary, and campus security.

Extra information on these jobs is in the F.A.Q. And to our two current teachers, if you wish to change from being a teacher to one of these jobs, then just PM me with the job you want or any questions you have.

I also wrote some extended information on the question of having 'bad guy characters'. I'm planning on allowing some evil-doers to roam the RP soon, but I wanted to make sure that currently, people who come in to look over the F.A.Q. realize that by 'bad guy characters', I mean actually in this RP bad guys, not like an in-game bad guy. I didn't think it was confusing or anything, but I did write it myself after all ^_^; No one seemed confused by it, but I just wanted to make sure it was completely clear.

That's all~

Feb. 18th, 2008 @ 05:16 pm HI HI~
Hello everyone~ My name is Riyuu and I'm new to the community so I thought I'd introduce myself! I'll be playing the young master Leon Magnus from now until whenever, so I hope to do him justice and play my part right! Which... means I should probably... tone down the preppiness. @w@;

I've played Destiny, Eternia, Symphonia, Abyss, Innocence, and just finished the main quest in Legendia and I've got a pretty good idea on most of the games in the series. :3 I hope I have a lot of fun here and it's nice to meet everyone~!

Feb. 15th, 2008 @ 12:48 am Y Herro Tharr Update And A Question
Top Edit -- So it's noticeable: Just so you know, I saw that the poll was a clear shut-out (7 votes for "Definitely", which I kinda expected ^_^; ...) and am now working to set up the different jobs. Just letting you guys know what I'm up to and that I'm not ignoring the poll or anything o/

----

Looking over the F.A.Q. because I have no life, I noticed that there might be a large amount of Tales-based questions that could be avoided if I just ... y'know ... answered the common ones.

So I did.

The F.A.Q. has been updated with the answers to some common (and some uncommon, maybe) Tales-related questions about how certain things would apply to the RP. There is also a new OC type -- replica. However, I'm not making 'replica' a race; it must be stated in the background that said character is a replica. And yes, playing the original alongside it is alright as well. And yes, I realize that most originals die, but remember that not all do. Or at least I don't think they do ... >___>; ... uhm ... well, this is an AU after all, so yeah! *dodging potential bullet get*

Also, I thought of this a short while after opening the RP, but wanted to see how many teacher characters would make an appearance first. But yes, seeing as some characters just ... aren't cut out to BE teachers like both of the teachers we have now XD, I was thinking of opening the field for other job positions in the academy. Such thrilling positions as ...

CAMPUS SECURITY, GUIDANCE COUNSELOR, or even SCHOOL NURSE!

Indeed.

And yes, our current teachers can make a little job switch if they so please when this is put into effect. And no, those aren't the only jobs I'm allowing out into the open. All of the ones that can be taken will be listed after I see the results of this poll.

Poll #1138787 Poll #1

Should adult/too-old-to-be-in-school characters be able to access other school-related jobs in the RP?

Definitely
7(100.0%)
As long as it doesn't make things complicated
0(0.0%)
Just teachers and students are fine.
0(0.0%)


That's all! Carry on, everyone.

I think I'm the only one who hasn't done one of these.  Hey to all. Name's Nerpin and I've been in love with the Tales series for years. Ever since I fumbled through a good chunk of an untranslated Tales of Phantasia rom.

I had considered playing Zelos for the RP, but it's been so long since I played Symphonia that I've been worried I couldn't do him justice. Would I make his ego TOO big? Have him flirt TOO much? When that much time passes it's really hard to remember the nuances, you just remember the traits that stick out like a sore thumb.

If anyone needs to...easiest way to reach me is emailing. inutaisho@gmail.com is the one I'm usually logged into and check every 10 seconds.

Loving the RP so far and I hope it lasts for a long bloody time and (cheesy talk time) creates lasting friendships for all.
