Heh. I'm still waiting for someone to register. If anyone needs time, let me know.

LOL

I foresee many reminder texts in the near future...

Have a safe trip, Fist.

Thanks for the reminder, Fist. I was just coming in to look at the deadline date. Sorry folks, I've been incredibly busy at work and at school.

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.

The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Oh wow...

Friars, Knights, Gazers...

...and The Choir... Big Grin

I am looking forward to deciphering what this all means...

Guesses anyone?

Yes, I was wondering about the Choir myself.

Considering our history in P2 & 3, it may come as a surprise that caam and I did not plan our characters with each other in the least detail. We were txting after the fact, and found potential for great similarities. Now we'll see how it works out. Alek has now initiated contact...

The Hellgatory Choir probably comes with impressive membership jackets. White leather with signature cigar burns and nicknames branded across the backs?

OK, to answer a few questions I've received:

Information revealed to you is yours to do with as you wish. How you respond, where you respond, is up to you. I do ask that you keep anything in the game in character (no quoting the Overfiend, since none of your characters know him). I, however, won't be adding anything more until the next turn results, and that's not necessarily a given, either.

I can't tell you what things mean. But you can.

I do have a small request, though. If your character is talking, it might help if you use quotation marks to clearly indicate dialog. It appears you guys are doing this, so keep it up.

And the Choir has found a Voice.

I can't wait to see what this is all about.

Thank you to whoever for adding to the game...

I'm missing a public submission from one player and a private submission from another.

Well, lazlo hasn't done a public since you said that. Glad to hear at least there's a private lazlo, though.

Heh, hey, he has to have something to keep him occupied between Pantheon turns.

A couple quick notes:

You may have noticed you can't edit or delete your posts. That is intentional. It goes with the theme of 'anything can be, but what is is.' It's also me being territorial with my primary duty of being this thing's editor. If you feel something should be edited (typos and other mistakes), let me know, and I'll edit it (probably Wink). 'I changed my mind' won't cut it by itself, though. So remember, when it comes to the public submission, you only have one shot. Of course, you can fix anything you think is a problem, but you have to do it 'in game.'

The deadlines are going to be firm from now on (public and private). Extensions may be requested, but please do so as far in advance as possible (so it is also fair to the other players). That sounds more draconian than it really is, though. There's nothing stopping you from making up for lost time during any turn.

Thanks,
The Overfiend
