7th Sea amusement
Slowly but surely it seems that the majority of our party is being thrown into positions of power within their respective countries. Cat is assumed (wrongfully) by most to be the next queen of Inismore. Gustav is slowly but surely collecting the missing pieces of the Eisen Imperator's missing Dracheneisen, Pietra not only has a drachen's shadowskin, but also has a drachen's egg in her possession. Raven has developed what looks like the beginnings of a sorcery that hasn't existed in Theah for some time, and Rahne... well, Rahne (for now) just points and laughs at the rest of us.
So I suppose it shouldn't have surprised me yesterday when we wound up deposing the Eisenfurst of Heiligrund, Gus's home province. We left Gus's brother in charge. And managed to piss off the Schattenman (again). I'm really wishing I had made Catriona a full-blooded Glamour mage right now, instead of only half-blooded. I mean, if the sidhe of Avalon really want us to drive the Schattenman out of Eisen, the least they could do is give Cat a little more power with which to do it. ;)
I'm starting to want to get into a full-fledged play by email 7th Sea game--just cause I wanna play around with other character concepts now.

"That's no moon, it's a space station!"
I logged on tonight to see this. Morse also suggested the subject line. I dunno who he is, but he's freakin' hysterical. I'm Catriona there, if you wondered.
Ashtara says, "Catri!"
Carly says, "OMG Catriona!"
Carly pages: l sherri
Morse twitches. God damn it, Carly. Should have just told me to trust you.
Bryon thinks he knows why a person walks towards them. Gravity.
So, of course, I looked at Sherri--who wasn't logged in.
You see her standing across the room, apparently oblivious to the silent commotion her presence generates. She is obviously a very attractive woman, with a confident, "femme fatale" aura about her, despite her deceivingly angelical features. Her long, dark blonde hair falls in silky gentle waves down her back and her magnetic green eyes sparkle with sensual innocence. However, you can almost swear that a tinge of mischief also becomes evident in them occasionally, whenever she allows her guard to come down. There's definitely more to her than meets the eye, you think, noticing her full lips smiling, politely but condescendingly, as she subtly tries to express her lack of interest to one of her admirers. You walk closer to her, attracted by something more than just her physical beauty, and as you get an unobstructed view of her body your tongue suddenly goes dry. You can hardly believe your eyes as they become riveted to what is clearly to you now her most prominent asset: her breasts. They are enormous. Immense. Even obscenely so, but somehow you feel more inclined towards the word "magnificent". Your mind boggles at their size, at the sight of them arrogantly stretching the fabric of her sweater, and you wonder if you had ever seen any this large. You can't really remember, but there is something about the way she carries them that tells you they're all natural. All you know now is how close to her - how close to those - you need to be.
Carly says, "They have their own gravitational pull????"
Bryon says, "They attract you to them. Gravity or magnetic."
Ashtara says, "Hypnotism!"
Morse, as a quantum singularity, is not subject to the Tit Moons of Sherri.
That particularly descriptive phrase stuck.

7th Sea and online rp vs tabletop rp
Since there are a myriad of little personal bits and pieces of plot going on in 7th Sea right now, and since we're not meeting for the next three and a half weeks, we've taken part of our 7th Sea game online. There's an email scene going on, and tonight,
Anyway, it was FUN. RPing online, in a instant text environment, is like absolutely nothing else. It has an immediacy that email RP lacks, and a chance for creative expression that face to face RP lacks. It clicks with me, I love it to pieces. And I want to do more of it.
It's not MUSHing. I don't want to MUSH. This is very focused, specific, limited RP. And I have absolutely no real outlet to do it. I've been a part of it before, but the games all fell by the wayside when people got too busy. Isn't there anyway for me to feed this big RP monkey on my back? :)
(Edited to add, there's an update over at

Because I am a big geek...
...and because last night's 7th Sea session proved to be a little more than my poor character's brain could bear, I broke down and started an in character journal for her. Expect more ranting there soon, Cat's just starting to get a handle on all the ramifications of her situation and I fully expect her brain to start exploding any time now.
