Okay, since I'm not quite ready to implement a system that would keep track of this for us, I just got an idea. I was trying to follow Cheapy's storyline, but I couldn't find all of the posts. So, let's try this.

Make a new reply when you make a new post, and you can describe how it's related to other characters (for example, all of Cheapy's), and just link to the post. Basically, this is the "guys, look what I just posted!" thread, instead of filling RPG discussions with that (please discuss posts there, though, and don't fill up this thread with off-topic replies). It also makes it easier for those of us trying to follow plots that involve multiple characters or players.

What do you think? :)

...Do I need to post a chronological list of my main plot posts so far, or have you been able to sort it out? :P

... well. :p No, not in this thread. Unless you'd like to. If you'd like to, I won't stop you. :p But the thread itself is designed just for updating.

So... I'd go. Post: (Link), Post (Link), Post (Link), etc?

Yep, pretty much. Or, if you want, you could make a post with all your plots and just re-post it every time you have a new post. Like (pretend all the underlines are links):

Meet the Jendobs

Kris Jendob
Shayera Jendob
Shayera Jendob
Kris Jendob (new!)

Borsk Feels Ya

Borsk Fey'lya (new!)

etc. Whatever your style dictates.

Eventually I hope to make this automated but that's not happening at the moment.

Unfortunately, I can't really post all of them in order, since a couple of the threads have moved around and since I can't figure out how to link to the middle or bottom of a page, like you can on Wikipedia for example. I guess you could just go through my characters' histories and connect the previous posts by time and date, but that would take forever.

Is there BB code for linking to a Word document? Because I have all of the posts on Word. Most of them, anyway.

That's not a bad idea. I think it would work. Besides Michael Harrison and Koshina (Maybe her), Jonathan Ferris and David O'Conner will be related, as in the same thread most of the time. Michael is the antagonist of my story. Meeting up in combat when I want to heat things up.

And with Jonathan and Michael, I'm going to have them, when they're in the same system that a battle's taking place in, I'm going to have them counter-act eachother's moves, since I would know what both objectives would be, that way, I'm just there for the story and battle, and I can't 'swing' the battle in any one way. They counter-act eachother, to keep things fair, while the other players in the battle, are in control.

But when they're in seperate battles, I will play by my objective.

That OK? Those conditions would only happen if Jonathan and Michael are in the same battlefield. Which might not happen very much.

But is that OK?

Just click the diamond to the left of the timestamp of your post reply, and that'll link you to the post.


And Orrion, I think that will be ok, but it's late and I'm just about to sign off, so I'm not exactly sure what I'm reading anymore. :p

Can I request closer of this account? I don't want to accidentally login with this account and get acused as a spy.

This is kind of late, but I just noticed how Space Jawa kept his plots browsable by putting a link at the top of his post to parts of the plot that came before him. That's an excellent idea, and I think I'm going to do it for all my future posts, when the plotline jumps from thread to thread. We still should use this thread to say "hey, I posted weee" and such, though. :D

Why, thank you for the complement. Glad to hear you like it. It's a patent pending design that just came to me one day. Don't worry about using it, though, I'll be sure to make royalty payments as easy to do as possible - cash and check are both acceptable. :P
