So you can see that we're still lacking partners for some people for both sides. I suggest moving the characters around, but it will become pretty uneven if we do so. (Of course, you guys are free to move if you want, or make more new characters of your choice). The North is actually really uneven. (Lionel, are you taking Hephaestus? What breed do you prefer, anyway, perhaps one of the other players can adjust her dragon for you. XD)

I'm thinking of pulling Thomas Reddrow to the North or asking one of the North dragons to move to the South. What do you think?

Some things to organize before we can finally start!

1. I need a list of places for both the North and the South. Just basic locations/names for where we can set our coverts, military bases, towns, that kind of stuff. I'd like suggestions, please.

2. I was thinking that for RP-ing, the characters can all interact with each other in their respective blogs (past tense third person narrative type, not the characters conversing through their blogs. For example: Mary took the stairs two at a time, her braids a messy, greasy trail behind her. Coming into her parents' house while still in her breeches and covered in dragon phlegm wasn't the best of things to do, but she just had to spread the news. "Mom!" she yelled excitedly. "ANNIE LAID AN EGG!")

Main threads will be in the community, the post of which will be written by either mods or a key character for the event. Logs can also be submitted to the community (for proper archiving). But for the rest of the character shenanigans, their LJs should be a good place for that. Also, RP posts should be properly titled:

[North/South] Name of Character : Location/Setting : Target character to RP with/Open to all.

But, ehehe. What do you guys think?

3. Don't forget to friend each other and have your characters' blogs join the communities!

Lastly, welcome to transmutable, teh new mod!

Nifty chart. And I congratulate transmutatble too!

One thing, Icarus and I actually haven't agreed to partner up yet. I don't have a problem with it if it's already been decided, but I'm not sure about what Icarus thinks.

Ooh, and thank goodness for thread labels.
Jun. 19th, 2008 06:00 am (UTC)
Oh, you haven't? 8D I thought there was a decision already, but do let me know if you two don't end up together, so I can fix it!

I plan on properly archiving the threads, too. XD Memory powers! Something. ♥

Aaaaugh. *starts making a character* ;_;

And congratulations, transmutable!

8D;;; Go you!

I'm glad this place is finally back up on it's feet. :D

3rd person sounds appropriate for the blogs and stuff~ Me likes, me likes.

I just hope everyone comes back since it's been a while since the community updated. My captain, oooh, my captain. >_____>
Jun. 19th, 2008 02:56 pm (UTC)
XDDD Perhaps it's time we contact everyone! I shall get to that over the weekend. :3

Lol! XD Think about it a little more and then tell me if it's okey? I think at this point, we're all too excited about the RP to mind. 8D Although I think [Bad username: bubonickwoodchuck] might be making a new character.

Cool, it's like we just had a long winter, and now life is starting to come back. Congrats transmutable, btw. Anyway, here's my two cents:

Firstly, there's gotta be a covert in or around Cincinnati. That city was one of the Union Army's main supply depots. Also in Ohio, Cleveland was a major recruiting grounds; so there probably should be a substantial covert there, or at least a breeding grounds. And since I'm rather too lazy to look up all the information for the other cities I'm thinking would be good, I'll just give their names. I was thinking:

New Orleans
St. Louis
New York City
Washington, D.C. (Although I'm not sure whether this one is important enough for a covert :P)

By the way, as I was looking up this stuff, i cam upon this little nugget of knowledge: Did you know that the city of Romney West Virginia switched hands 56 times during the war?
Jun. 19th, 2008 10:23 pm (UTC)
Oh, and also, I'm fine with Havelock being switched around to a different side, if necessary.

I was hoping for a Raconteur or Chesapeake Red, but as we have none of those, I'd be more than willing to pair with Hephaestus if he's more than willing. |O|

I'm also going to make no bones about the fact that American history and the Civil War was never really my thing, so I don't know half as much about it as a lot of you guys. But I'll do my research when time permits. Perhaps that volume of "The Battle 100: The Stories Behind History's Most Influential Battles" on my shelf might help a little...
Jun. 20th, 2008 03:45 am (UTC)
Oho, I see, I see! I shall link this to Heps, then. X3

*w* research appreciated! I'm starting from... pretty much scratch for it. orz. Now I wish we had American history here, but it's all Greek. 8D
Jun. 21st, 2008 02:18 am (UTC)
For the record, I feel slightly before the Battle of Antietam is a good place to start. At that point people had started to realize both sides were very serious threats, and that the war would not be a quick one. How much before it though? Like two weeks, or less than that, or what. Also for the record, my father was a huge Civil War buff, and we have as many books on General Grant as we have pictures of my grandmother.
Jun. 21st, 2008 08:56 am (UTC)
Yes! We shall start there. Depending on my research, maybe we can start on the interactions and set it a month before? And then fast forward the bits we don't need, if ever.

Lol! I'll take note of that, then. Aah, which do you think should be the main headquarters for each side? I was guessing that it'd be New York, Pennyslvania and Ohio for the North? Or something, and I haven't started on the Southern states yet.

That's true that having dragons would give them a chance to run the blockade. But still, it was a really big blockade. Like covered-all-the-southern-states blockade. Anyway, if they could even spare a dragon or two (They were often low on supplies and men, so I'm thinking dragons would be in great demand, too), I think they'd probably have to be a small, courier type, or well camouflaged lightweight. For the record, most European countries did want the Confederacy to succeed, they just didn't want to get involved. Maybe a dragon-related incident convinces them to help?
Jun. 21st, 2008 09:48 pm (UTC)
Good points about foreign involvement, and I just had a thought: relations between the Union and Europe were tense too because of several European nations conveniently turning a blind eye to all of the Confederate privateering that went on in their waters (ex. the CSS Alabama attacking US whaleships, etc). Any thoughts? (The idea of a strained relationship between aerial corps and privateer dragon crews sounds interesting to me-- after all, historically Navy ships and privateers haven't gotten along all that well.)
Jun. 21st, 2008 10:16 pm (UTC)
That does bring some interesting thoughts and possibilities, in my opinion. I'd never really thought about the privateer dragons. I guess there must have been a few. Imagine a fire-breathing privateer... But still, will there even be any characters getting involved with the navy?
Jun. 21st, 2008 10:25 pm (UTC)
Hmmm...that would probably have to wait until we have more members, since it looks like we're going to be focusing on the major land-based stuff. (Still, I'm kind of attached to the idea of a privateer dragon named Alabama...oh well. *shrug*)
