Check, check! @ 09:51 pm
Activity: I need to see a post from graverobber
within the next day or so. I'd also like to hear from brixie
, as well.
There will be another bill from GeneCo posted for everybody else on the 1st of April. Remember, all you have to do is respond to that post with a comment ("payment") to keep your character in the game. Otherwise they risk defaulting on their organ payments, and subsequent repossession.
If you have any ideas for plots or storylines, please submit them to this post
Would a brainstorming chat on Friday be helpful?

, friending button, and contact list

Activity Policy @ 11:45 pm
We're all busy people. I want
this game to be low key. The last thing I want is for you guys to feel like it's a chore to be here, and that's why I don't have strict activity checks. However, I do want to check in now and again to make sure that people are still interested in their characters and the game itself. To that effect, I'm going to have another group chat this coming Friday (the 6th), at 6 or 7 PM (Pacific Time). We can see where we're all at, as well as talk about possible plot and whatnot.
Some of you may have noticed the GeneCo Payment Notification on the rp comm. This is sort of an In Game way for me to check up on Activity for the OCs. I will post them at the beginning of each monthIf your character has had surgery
(most of them should fall in this group), you can make a "payment" by commenting to that post with the amount you're willing/able to pay. If you're a GeneCo employee, you should still comment (though your contract with GeneCo might decrease or eliminate the actual sum owed, depending).
If you don't comment in time, your character's payment is late. Because the RP world works faster than the real world, your character will receive a warning 3 days after their due date. At 9 days after the due date, he or she might be eligible for repossession. At this point, I will contact you privately to decide the plot for your character - whether they will be pursued by a repo man or can get back in good with GeneCo somehow. If I can't get a hold of you - by aim, email, or anything else - then I reserve the right to remove your character from the game, and list them as a GeneCo casualty after 30 days of you - the player - being off the radar.
If you want your character's payment to lapse on purpose (say, if you want to be on GeneCo's black list for plot), just ignore the post!
Does that make sense? Let me know what you all think.
(Characters who are off the grid - such as Graverobber, Shilo, and Brixie: I will be checking your activity occasionally, as well. If it seems you've gone quiet, I'll probably poke you ooc, on aim or by email.)

Hiatus @ 04:14 pm
I'm going away for a couple of days, so I won't be on AIM or anything. I'll bring back pictures though since its a comic book convention I'm going to.
Edit this is going to be extended for another week as life as kicked me in the nuts, I have another really bad cold, papers due and school is making me run a gauntlet before spring break. >

So hey, it's Gwyn, because I don't have enough characters, I picked up another one. XD Meet Eugene Kozlowski, a med student and Brixie's BFF and roommate. He's a goofy kind of guy with interesting taste in clothes, and is generally a big dork who knows it and loves it. Also, BEST EVAR MUSTACHE. He does go to nightclubs and is an avid drinker, so anyone who frequents that sort of scene can have run into him if you want, or if you want your character to have any background with him, lemme know!

Hello hello @ 11:33 pm
hey there! Might as well introduce myself. Lindsay or Narret, either or, I'm chill with it, I'm playing Denver, the addict. He's just slightly crazy and unpredictable because of his addiction. He's a bit of a regular at the addiction support centers even though he has no desire to quit. But a bit of a back story before the Zydrate, because at one point he was a decent human being.
Denver used to work in construction, mostly welding as he didn’t have the buck or muscle for the heavier lifting, and he was good with his hands. True blue collar boy worked for a wage and mostly ignored the world around him. Then one unfortunate day something went wrong as his welding gun hit something that caused an explosion propelling a chunk of debris into his chest, shattering his sternum. He lived but he required several surgeries to remove all the pieces of bone and replace the sternum. The time off and the limitations set on him by the surgeons caused him to lose his job, as there were plenty of people that didn’t need to take the healing time for bone transplants. He spent his days alone drinking because there was nothing better to do, he would frequent the pubs and get people to put him into drinking contests so he could get smashed. This led to his liver failing and needing replacement, and another trip to the surgeons and another hit of their Zydrate. He had become hooked on the stuff, terribly addicted.
You can hit me up on AIM: narrettwist email: firstname.lastname@example.org or here, I'm down for rping most anytime I'm around. just ping me an idea if you come up with one, and I'll ditto on that if I can think of ideas.

The Game is Open! @ 10:28 pm
As of tonight, the game is officially open! Go forth and play! Post your logs! Post your threads!
And email me if you have any questions or problems. ^.^

Oh, all right. I might as well jump on the intro bandwagon.
My name is Michelle and I am pleased (and excited) to introduce Brixie! She's a 21 year old psychology student who works part time at a local eggs and legs diner as a waitress. Sarah and I have worked out that Brixie is the younger cousin of Lawrence Bloodgood and while that isn't incredibly important now
, it might be later when she has to have her heart replaced and has to make a decision about whether to go with GeneCo or find other means.
As of right now, Brixie is a virgin to surgery. She isn't necessarily against it, but her heart hasn't given out yet. The cost of school is keeping her from doing anything to be fashionable. She does have a fondness for tattoos and just recently got her eyeliner tattooed on! Brixie isn't exactly a wild child, though. She's a normal girl and she is somewhat of a bookworm and is incredibly passionate about what she is studying.
I am really up for anything, so if you have an idea for plot between Brixie and your character, do not hesitate to bring it up with me! You can contact me by AIM (chellealistic) or e-mail (email@example.com). At the moment, I will be responding to e-mail much quicker.
*uses sexy icon because it probably won't get too much use in-game!*
I look forward to playing with each and every one of you!
another intro, if you can stand it! @ 04:25 pm
Well, hello, my dears. Although I've talked with both Sarah and Gwyn, I'm afraid I don't really know anyone here. In which case, I thought the right thing would be to stand up and introduce myself. So, HI! I'm Courtney and I'll be playing Shilo for you guys. This is a real treat for me. =)
Storyline-wise, Shilo already counts GraveRobber as her friend, but now that she's free to come and go as she pleases, surely there are other friends to be made! I can't say she's very excited about anyone that has anything to do with GeneCo, but, at the very least, she's polite. So, friends? Enemies? Real
people who are not pictures of her dead parents and godmother to talk to? We'll take any and all!
If you'd like to chat/plot, I'm usually available on freerthansixteen
(on AIM) or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Very much looking forward to writing with you all!

OOC Chat Notice (non-mandatory) @ 11:39 pm
Barring some nutty power outage on my end, there will be an optional OOC chat this Friday evening/night. Just a meet and greet to kick plot ideas around. I was thinking of shooting for 5 or 6 pm (Pacific time) on. I'll invite people on AIM as I see them.
Right now we have six players and eight characters. I'm hoping to entice a couple more players into the game by the end of the weekend, but either way, do y'all think that's enough to start with? I know everyone is very eager to get going, and I don't want to lose any steam.

Intro! @ 09:04 pm
So I guess I will be the first to say hello!
I'm Gwyn, I play the Graverobber (yes, he has a real name, no, it's probably not going to come up all that often). My AIM is stolen thing
and you can e-mail me at email@example.com. I am a generally friendly person who has an annoying tendency to be over enthusiastic at times. I love the word 'awesome', and I understand this can get annoying. XD
Plot, plot, plot. I've already been talking with Courtney (Shilo player) about Graverobber/Shilo plot, but I'm also open to lots of other stuff. I figure at some point in time, the Graverobber actually had a legit job, and maybe even worked for GeneCo (he's older than he looks), so there's some mystery there, if anyone wants to explore it. He's also available for anyone who wants to have a drug habit, or needs underworld type contacts! If anyone's interested, just lemme know.
Otherwise, HEY! ^_^

Welcome to the game! @ 12:37 am
This is the current cast
of the Genetic Opera RPG so far. The friend-all button is also up to date, though you have to be logged into your journal in order to use it. Please let me know if I've made any mistakes.
I'm so thrilled to see you all here. ^.^ If you want to introduce yourselves to the comm, that'd be fine. I'll probably collect a list of contact info fairly shortly. We'll be officially starting once we have a few more players committed, but that doesn't mean we can't start to get to know one another and talk plot now.
I'm really looking forward to playing with everyone. This should be a lot of fun.
