Hardcore! If you make any changes, I recommend finding the font called "Blade 2", but this is already great!

I think you have a pretty worked out time line of the major events that need to happen, and you seem to have a good idea of the conflicts involved in each of those events. I would go ahead and put up an OOC topic in the OOC forum, starting with 1-2 paragraphs of IC description, and then explaining t...

I'm probably swamping you with PMs about Elysium and my replies here, but I hope my suggestions help. As far as the conflict goes, it is a pretty standard one, and some veterans might tell you it's cliche. Ignore them, because even cliche plots can be fun! However, you might want to consider how you...

The British accent hit him like a hurled plate of cold macaroni and cheese - Norm almost had the wind knocked out of him and had to gasp for air. Being confined to the same, apparently broken lift as the Brit made him feel dirty. He stumbled into a door-side corner as Cate pushed past him, pressing ...

Four People in Another Room (IC)

( OOC ) There was a single display, positioned above the closed doors, but it was not lit. To increase the disorientation of the lift, the buttons normally used to signify the destination floor, were unlabeled. Every few seconds there was a sharp ding, as though the lift had passed another floor. Ev...

Discussion on Flexible Collaborative Writing

An outside link, but to a very respectable source, namely RolePlayAcademy.com Flexible Collaborative Writing by Circ on RPA Circ writes that there are three major issues in collaborative writing. I'm sure that at least one of the instructors has, at some given time, covered each of these topics, but...

Some time had passed, and Alias ducked back in, this time ignoring the windows.

I wont impede your creativity, but I'd suggest spelling it out in the title, and giving the definition in the first line of the article. Otherwise the title isn't... clear, and a lot of time the title is what convinces someone that what they are about to read is relevant. I'm coming from the perspec...

The gate was sliding back down after Alex, so Alias crouched and ducked under it, narrowly avoiding metal in his back. The current occupants were all clearly waiting, and Alias felt that they had turned their gaze to his attire: an unimpressive long shirt, short pants, and sandals. "If you're t...

He knocked twice on the door, and then entered the lounge. It had changed, but such was expected with magic in the world. "Gideon?" Alias had taken a younger form, other than that of the robed, staved, and wizened Olias. Today he had ruffled hair, sandals, and medieval serf attire of a lon...
