Has anyone else noticed that the thread hasn't moved in a month and a half? :lol: :cry:

Yeah but I think that's kinda the point, since it was basically just there to introduce the villains. There' not much for them to do aside from plot. Speaking of which we need more plotting amongst themselves! Intrigue and backstabbing abound.

Yeah, like Mr_D said it's mostly for their introduction and plotting. And how much villainous plotting can you do before you just go over the same points again and again? Really, methinks it just the nature of that thread.

Hey, actually, you can do quite a bit of plotting before starting to run over the same ideas again. See, you don't need to plot "big", but instead you can plot to steal breakfast, you can plot to push that lady down the stairs 'accidentally', you can plot to poison the well in town with something to make most everyone sick (but only kill the really weak ones), you can also plot larger... knock over the tavern, hit the slow-moving but well-guarded merchant caravan, plot to 'Take over the WORLD!'.... and so forth.

Please,these are proffessional villains, anything less than the domination of a large country is beneath their notice. I still say we need more backstabbing though.

I'd enjoy a little more attempts at ploting here at least. Koll himself really doesn't do much backstabbing, I mean...what use does he have for it. He only cares as long as he gets what he wants...

Some of the other villians though, I can see some serious confrontation there...

Lord Jotaul will spy and wait and plot until the time for his betrayal comes. Maybe I could work more with him after Marching Band when I have more time. But now I'm having trouble even posting in Experiments.

Lancet turned to him for a moment, her wide eyes staring back at him, "It will not work this time."


I'm not sure I get what you mean by this.

Um....that's the point. It was meant to confuse your character.

basically she was letting him know that his experiment wasn't going to work this time either, due to some sort of tweak or something she saw....

...I hope that wasn't too out of line there.

Nope, I just wasn't quite sure who was talking or who it was directed at.

Besides, it's not going to work anyway. :lol:
