Hey there -

You may have noticed that as of late, we - the mods - have been less enthusiastic/involved in the game. There are too many reasons to list here, but we will bring up the ones we feel have impacted the state of the game (and us) the most.

First off, we'd like to address the amount of drama going on behind our backs since the game opened. We hear about all of the wank second-hand and after the fact, rather than having it brought to our attention in the first place -- which is what we're here for. We've never made ourselves unavailable or difficult to talk to about anything. We don't play favorites or choose sides with our players, nor do we hold grudges against anyone in the game. Yet, over and over again we're finding ourselves on the outside. It makes our job very difficult, and creates a tense atmosphere that even new people just joining seem to be able to pick up on. This has been brought to our attention by several players.

Secondly, since we posted the request that people bring plot ideas and game related questions to us through email, the amount of social interaction we receive has gone down to almost nothing. In the past few months, neither of us have been asked to scene or plot (with very few exceptions). Because of this we've started feeling less welcome in our own game, which is (for obvious reasons) totally unacceptable.

We've noticed a drop in quality in regards to writing standards, despite several warnings given out. This is something we feel we shouldn't even have had to address at all, but it's seemed to only get worse and become more common. We stated in the rules the expectations we had for our players, and as time has gone on those expectations have been increasingly disregarded.

Finally, the lack of action going on in general had been disheartening. Too often, threads are being dropped and people are being left out or feeling ignored. There are people we barely hear from in scenes or otherwise. These problems have been coming up a lot more frequently. Even after requesting that people post logs and start threads, we've seen a serious decline in the amount of scenes going up. Each game day the number seems to be dropping. Even after we posted the scene lottery to stir things up, nothing really improved. It makes our efforts feel like they've been in vain, and made us disinterested in the story arc we had intended on doing.

In short, we've lost our drive to moderate this game. It hasn't been fun for us in months, despite all our efforts to enjoy it again. This may seem abrupt, and some of you may consider it unfair, but we've decided to close the game. We debated the idea of having someone else take over, but it doesn't seem like people genuinely care enough to keep it alive. This was a really difficult decision for us, and we're both immensely saddened to see it ending like this -- and so soon. We felt it was best to end it now though, rather than prolonging it and dragging it through the mud. We didn't want to end up in a situation where we were leading the group on when everyone had already stopped caring months ago. We're both fairly devastated that it came down to this, given the amount of love we put into this project. We really wanted this to succeed and be an amazing group with amazing story lines. It just didn't end up how we'd imagined. We've been re-writing this all night, trying to reach some other conclusion and trying to express just how difficult this is for us both. We are so god damned sorry. This isn't something either of us are taking lightly.

We really appreciated the people in the game, and we're sorry to see it end like this. If anyone wants to hit us up for PSLs or anything, don't be shy. We wish you all the best of luck in other games. To our new players, we apologize. It was never supposed to end this soon.

Lots of love and may the power protect you,
Mod-bot & Plug-mod

This shouldn't affect anyone because I didn't set up many lines, but with life being so hectic lately, I'm going to have to drop Ariston and Jakub. I've decided to keep Staffan only because I adore this community, even though my free time is severly limited now.

Hiatus from my characters. I'll do mod work, but I need a break. I'm sorry to those I have threads with right now. The inspiration is either there or it isn't. Right now it isn't.

it's me again

Hi! So my sidekick service has been out all week because Danger blows hard. It was finally restored today hence I will be on AIM unless another problem occurs. Annddd if you're lazy like me (I know some of you are), you forget to update things or forget things in general. So, assuming you're using an older version of AIM (which you should -_-), or at least a buddy list loadable version, I present to you the BTA buddy list based on the contact list of AIM names and also including player names and characters in the buddy comments.

Hey guys- it's Lee. I just wanted to apologize for being so bad about posts over the past couples days. I've been super crazy busy, and on top of that dealing with some emotional crap and family issues and ugh. Either Monday or Tuesday I should be back in business though. I'm so sorry I keep on vanishing! D:

Hey girls and guys,

Just a quick reminder of one of the rules: Please make sure we're keeping up the writing standards stated in our rules section. Many of us put a lot of effort into our posts, and it can be difficult to respond when we aren't given much in return. Like we've said before, we're not expecting novels, and we're not expecting masterpieces with every response. Hell, once in a while a short response is all you can come up with, and that's fine. Mostly we're concerned over the quality of the writing. We want this game to be as awesome as it can be. We love all of ya so far, and all the lines we've got going. This post is meant more to be directing than anything; we're not pointing any fingers, but taking a precautionary step, as we've noticed more and more of the short-and-sweet kinda posts being passed around.

Keep pumping it out -- and hey, I'm super excited about those scene lottery results! ;)

So sorry for disappearing on you guys. Had more computer issues. But no more, I'm back. Hopefully I won't have anymore computer issues.

Anyone want to thread?

- Nikola, Dominic, James



My name is Charlie and I'm new around these parts. I'm playing Dr.Guinevere Sloane, the PPRA's resident psychiatrist. She isn't a 'normal' psychiatrists, often trying out alternative treatments and medicine's before falling back onto the various cocktails that, she feels, most doctors are all to eager to prescribe.

She's Irish, likes to drink (never to excess) and has a bad habit of smoking. She's probably got a few Active and Training Rangers as her patients, so anyone who wishes to come to her to talk about whatever is on their mind is always very welcome within her office.

She likes making friends, but keeps work and her private line very separate. She is always willing to greet her patients with a smile if she encounters them outside of her office.

If you feel like plotting/chatting I can be reached at bastblackrose on AIM =)

hello! i am not dead, and i am so sorry i haven't been as active as i should be. it's just that hockey season is starting and that's taking most of my time up. there's also a ton of events going on at the complex i work at that are exhausting me. i can't give a definite time as to when things will be let up, so you'll just have to deal with my limited availability for now. if you do catch me available on aim, drop me a line. hell, spam my away message for all i care!

Doesn't seem to end...

I am a bit busy. I had a family emergency on Tues and since them have been struggling to keep up as the school work I got behind on took priority. Emergency is solved and school work is nearly caught up.

However I have plans for tonight, work all day tomorrow and then have plans for the evening. I won't be able to get on. I will get caught up on Sat. If you need a char for something...please don't hesitate to e-mail me.

Sorry, things should even out this weekend as I have it off.

:D Back!

I finally have my adapter! Yay!

I'll be tagging into threads where I owe tags tonight and/or tomorrow (I had a looong day at work today that involved walking to work in the pouring rain and working all day in soaked clothing, so I'll be going to bed early).

If anyone would like scenes/plot with Siobhan, email me at evil_wild_lex at yahoo dot com or reply here and we shall discuss things. Email is the most reliable way to reach me for discussing plot stuff since I don't go on AIM that often.



So with the sudden absence of Hank, we're going to need to work it into the game somehow. My first thought is that he could have been injured by Ionia (perhaps not permanently in the case of Mani returning) and forced into temporary retirement. It seems like the easiest plan, but we're open to other ideas as well. Any thoughts?

Hey kiddos, just wanted to let you know, even though mod-bot is absent until sunday, plug-mod is still around. I've been sick the past few days, but I'm fast recovering and intend to be online tomorrow and the next day. Feel free to hit me up to chat or just scene. :)

Sep. 25th, 2009


Leaving town tonight to take a much-needed vacation. I'll be back Sunday evening, and I'll respond to my tags once or twice before then if I can manage.

Sep. 22nd, 2009


So as I said before...

I'm now officially back. My schedule is back in check and I'm back in NY. The internet is back and my motivation to rp is back!

Once again everyone, this is Linde, a green ranger for team detroit . He's been around for awhile but my so called life attempted to eradicate him. That won't be happening again. Linde feels a little out of place in this whole organization because of his hiatus, so I'm trying to get him to make more friends and interact more. I'm on aim almost always, my sn is again, CookingbytehBook , feel free to message me or leave me a comment on here and we can get something going. Linde's lonely and wants to get back into the swing of things!

Hello there! Would the lovely lot of you be interested in such silly things as...

  • Nominations & Awards - for voting on favorite characters, scenes, relationships, rivalries, etc
  • Song Dedications - which would be where your characters could dedicate songs of love, longing, disgust and hatred for each other
  • Writing Challenges - where we would post up a challenge and you could choose to be involved or not, with possible shiny things as rewards
  • Mod Driven Plots - basically just more of these things, sort of styled like the "It Came From The Dark" one we're currently working on

  • Other ideas are welcomed as well! =)
    Comments are screened.

    I'm here to steal your women...and that painting, right over...there.

    Salutations Folks,

    Sorry for the delay, but I was off being foolish.  This here is Legacy.  Now he don't say much, but that's due to the fact that he's always thinking inside that head of his.  Hailing from KO-35, he's not your normal earthbound human.  He's got those crazy powers of telekinesis, and he knows a thing or two about outer space, and the goings on out there in the stars.  As luck, or misfortune if you prefer, would have it, he's found his way here to Earth.  But don't worry he's not after a member of Team Seattle.  He's here looking for something imparticular, and once he finds it, he may just be on his way again.  He's not one for questions though, so if you find yourself getting in between him and his prize don't be too surprised if he shoots first, and shoots again after that.

    Oh, and just so everyone's on the up and up.  He's a former Ranger that got washed out of the program.  Seems his father was a big deal back in the day, and after stealing a morpher, and playing mafiso for a while off world, he ended up getting chased across the galaxy for some time.  So he might know some of the tricks you plan on bringing against him.  Just fair warning is all.  The simple fact though is, if you leave him alone, he'll leave you alone.  Unless you have something he wants, and then he'll more than likely go after it.  Spoils of war and all that.

    I'm getting my computer fixed, it has some type of virus or something. Will be back either Sunday or Monday.

    - Destiny


    Hi! So like modbot and plungermod, real life has been kicking me in the butt lately, but I should be fully active by the end of the weekend. Until then, if I'm MIA, work is why.


    Hey, other mod here guys.

    Things have been crazy hectic for me. I *know* I owe people scenes/tags and I'm super super sorry about the DAYS that span between my appearing online (often with an away message up.) Much like Christen, RL has been ass-smacking me. UNLIKE Christen, I'm terrible about replying to threads every night despite IRL situations. That being said, I will return to being a good mod ASAP. I will do my best to be online more often, and I will be sure to get back on my threads. Hopefully after this weekend (i.e: by monday or so) I'll be able to be more active.

    Love you guys, Love this game, tons and tons of apologies.
