I hope it's okay that Antoine/Luis got more attached to Berry. >> I'm also dying at how penguins are becoming such a big part of the plot at this point. :P

Good question that I thought I replied to but apparently didn't >>

I think we were going to have some kind of rebel thing where we took down the tower using some of Berry's knowledge on the materials that were taken from their world to build it? But we never figured it out in too much detail.

I don't have a direct idea of where it goes from here in detail. I thought that now, after this first test, we are heading for a first mission, where we can perhaps insert @ScarlettFire? I thought story-wise we could just go on in this slow tone. I like it. :D

I'm definitely down for doing a first mission! I also agree that now would be a great time to add @ScarlettFire's character in if she's still down for doing this rp. :)

As for the slow tone, I have some mixed feelings on it >> I like how the slow tone allows this rp to be casual & gives us a chance to flesh out character dynamics, but I'm also concerned that if we keep up this tone for the entire rp, we might end up losing steam because of the pacing.

Yeah, I can see, what you mean @Magebird. I think when ScarlettFire is on board, we can start to plan a little bit more. I´m going to write my post later the day.

I'm not sure. >> It might be a good idea to read the rp so far, just to be on the safe side. :)

A bit later than expected, but posted.

@Magebird Antoine is a good name for the other penguin. Edelgard agreed with it.

@ScarlettFire

I don't think it will be enough just to have a summary of everything so far, but then again, it depends on your character and whether they have had contact with us yet.

That's okay! I'm glad Antoine's name was a hit. :)

And I second that! It would be better to read the roleplay so you know what you've missed and know the characters, but it could also really depend on how much knowledge your character needs when they show up.

Posted! Berry didn't say anything, but I wanted to get a post in to keep this roleplay going.

@Shady

Do you want to add something? My next post is going to be a bit longer because of the first mission. :D

Ahh sorry! I have yeeted in a smol Sadie reply ^-^

I agree with the consensus y'all came up with! In an entirely uncharacteristic turn of events for me, I actually sort of like the slower pace to this rather than rapid-fire posts. But I do definitely think we need some direction soon. It's starting to feel aimless, which really takes the wind out of RPs. I think it'd be good to get started on the mission soon ^^

Thanks!

I wanted to take the time to write this post. Here's an overview of what we have in mind; if you have any other ideas or perhaps a different setting, please let me know.

We're planning a small mission in an old depot that leads from the buildings around the Space Elevator. There we will rescue some rebels who have been kidnapped during a prisoner transport. -> Only kidnapped by whom? I think we didn't want to make the bad guy the government now. Was it a company?
