I have a few things I need to say. First off, I'm very grateful to Darq for being such an awesome GM and running such a fantastic game for so long. I hope I can keep the game as fun as it was while you were running it. Thanks so much for everything! *hugs*
Next, I'd like to thank Trunks, Tap, Jewel, Piccolo, and Vegeto especially for continuing to post during these past few weeks. It means a lot that you've kept things going so far, I'm really glad you're still here, and I hope you'll stick with us while I get the Budoukai and the next plot set up.
For all of you who have been on the fence about playing or haven't been posting, I understand completely. I know things have been shaky lately and that it's the summer besides, so people are busy. I'd just like to request that you consider staying with us, at least for a month or two. There's a tournament coming up and I'm looking at doing something with the Dragonballs and it would mean a lot to me if I could have a little time to wake things back up and make this game as enjoyable as possible for everyone.
Now, about this tournament. I'd like to have the tournament itself run Wednesday-Friday of whichever week we pick, but if that proves to be a problem, we can change that. During the tournament, each character should post each day s/he competes, win or lose. After all, everyone's been training for this for months, right?
In order to find out which week is best for everyone, let's run a poll:
This poll is now closed.
This poll will close Thursday, July 10. At that time, we'll set a definite date for the tournament and schedule the dice rolling in an AIM chat to determine matches and outcomes in said tournament. All players are welcome at the dice rolling, but if you don't want to know how your character does before s/he does, it would be a good idea to stay away from the chat on said night.
I'll be trying to touch base personally with everyone over IM (I'm Powergal 7) or e-mail (piper_g [at] hotmail) within the next week to talk characters and upcoming events and to help make sure this transition goes as smoothly as possible. It'd also really help if everyone would please reply to this post so I know who has read this.
Thanks, everybody. I'm looking forward to some really great things to come in this game and I hope you're feeling the same way. Please don't hesitate to get my attention on IM or e-mail me if you have any questions or concerns!
