I was noticing that Ergonomic Cat was browsing the forams at the time of my posting... now I notice YOU just posted like 3 seconds ago and therefore might actually be online still to reply!

I was up all night making my wife's computer work again after it's power supply failed... and I may have inhaled some of that blue smoke that comes out of computers when they fry in the process... and I took some Ibuprofen for a toothache... and am running entirely on coffee and rice crackers.

Long story short... Ideal time for me to be creative... but also higher then normal likelyhood of incomprehensibility and testiness.

Hah! Sounds like a blast mate. I'll get my character's stats up by tonight.

Edit: Posted.

So, I've found the following to be useful to me in the past so I'll just put it out there for y'all. I created a cludgey greasemonkey script that makes it so's people's character names show up beside their forum names... will work "out of the box" on Chrome, but you will need to install the "greasemonkey" plugin on most other browsers... like firefox... also, it will need to be modified whenever a new thread is added.

Code:
// ==UserScript==
// @name SinbadEVs ORP UserScript (Time for some thrilling heroics Edition)
// @match http://online-roleplaying.com/forums...ad.php?t=12289
// @include http://online-roleplaying.com/forums...ad.php?t=12289
// ==/UserScript==

window.setTimeout( function() 
{


function getElementsByClassName(classname, par)
{
    var a=[];   
    var re = new RegExp('\\b' + classname + '\\b');
        
    var els = par.getElementsByTagName("*");
 
    for(var i=0,j=els.length; i<j; i++) 
    {       
        if(re.test(els[i].className)) 
        {    
            a.push(els[i]);
        }
    }
    

    return a;
};

var users = getElementsByClassName("bigusername",document);
    for (var i = 0; i < users.length; i++) {
        var thisUser = users[i];
        if (thisUser.innerHTML == 'Ergonomic Cat' || thisUser.innerHTML == '<b>Ergonomic Cat</b>')
            {thisUser.innerHTML = thisUser.innerHTML + " - Game Master";}
        if (thisUser.innerHTML == 'SinbadEV' || thisUser.innerHTML == '<b>SinbadEV</b>')
            {thisUser.innerHTML = thisUser.innerHTML + ' - Harvey Branscomb ';}
        if (thisUser.innerHTML == 'GIJ00' || thisUser.innerHTML == '<b>GIJ00</b>')
            {thisUser.innerHTML = thisUser.innerHTML + ' - Patrick West';}
        if (thisUser.innerHTML == 'Krypton' || thisUser.innerHTML == '<b>Krypton</b>')
            {thisUser.innerHTML = thisUser.innerHTML + ' - Morris Arsaid';}
        if (thisUser.innerHTML == '5Solas' || thisUser.innerHTML == '<b>5Solas</b>')
            {thisUser.innerHTML = thisUser.innerHTML + ' - Minnesota Piers';}   
            
    }



}, 100);

And we're off.

For future posts, we can all use the standard past tense, and normal posting. I plan to start each episode with a script treatment, but there's no need to continue past there.

Wonderful. Can't wait to start and have real life get in the way from enjoying it fully. :p

EDIT: Quick thought: At least my preference is to write the romanization of the Chinese (like you did the second time) in italics as it's easier on the mind to imagine someone saying "
Bun tyen shung duh ee dway ro" vs 笨天生的一堆肉 as I have no idea what that would sound like. Just my .002 (inflation adjusted).

The ship is in good enough shape - you could do better repairs if you had the time and equipment, but it's not in any danger of spontaneous oxidation or the like. The panels are made true, the structure is sound.

The people seem to be about what they appear. Various assorteds, a handgun or two, but nothing particularly out of the ordinary.

I assume that I didn't notice anything from the outside, but unless we're being chased out of port Harvey is going to look over every inch of the vessel as soon as he get's a chance...

Oh, I'm sure nothing is going to come up and we'll all have weeks to take care of odds-and-ends...

He'll get a chance in a bit.

I'll give y'all another day in case there's stuff to discuss, then make another plot progression post.

Yeah... I don't know what you expect us to want to discuss... but I'm fine with moving on.

Unless there is a technical reason not to... Harvey is going to sleep and keep most of his stuff in the engine room. Maybe co-opt a storage compartment for his personal items and army surplus rations.

Sooooooo... Just wanted to mention that Harvey's "Part Machine-ness" is not meant to be obvious... he doesn't keep it a secret but you'd need to be knowledgeable about cybernetics (like Patrick West) to notice anything other then the fact I walk with a limp and have kinda weirdly coloured eyes. He'll likely take off his gloves and duster when he's working on repairs and the like so people on the ship won't take long to notice the difference but they wouldn't think of him as a "machine man" yet at this point in the game.

Hmm...I see what you mean. As it probably wouldn't have come up in polite conversation during the very short time MP has known him, I'll edit that portion out. Thanks for the correction.

Wait... are you implying that the sound that a cricket makes is "cricket"... like it's named after the sound it makes? I'm going to have to rethink my whole world view now.

Yes sir, yes I am. Hopefully this will not cause a conflict in the space-time continuum.
