Inspired by midnight_sidhe's recent post summarizing songs, I've decided to try my hand.
I think my music may say more about me than I'd like.

Meme Weeding: Charisma Privilege [Jan. 16th, 2014|11:22 pm]

    The problems I have with ‘charisma privilege,’ a meme* I’ve encountered in HRSFA circles, are multiple. To begin with, I don’t think it exists - and I’ll start with that. But almost more importantly, I believe that as a meme, ‘Charisma Privilege’ is toxic: that its presence in a community is harmful to those it is supposed to support, and provides a smokescreen for harmful activity. As such, I’d like to lay out my reasoning for why this particular meme ought to be weeded out of HRSFA discourse.

First, the unspoilery bit: Ron Perlman's character in Pacific Rim, Hannibal Chau, is great. So great.
And now, some thoughts...

Fate/Keter small
There seems to be a general desire for clarification as regards mage stats, and how they compare to other humans.
Servant stats seem to suffer less of this, but nonetheless I'm putting a short summary at the bottom of this to make some things clear.
Also, if people could stat up characters soon when they have the time, it would be hugely appreciated; we'll try to get out the last necessary info (how the Keter Grail War works, the geography of the city of Bellona, Nebraska - yes, Nebraska - and possibly a short example fight.
We'd love to launch the game around this weekend-ish.
Stats! Thrilling.Collapse )

So, this is just to clarify something:
Fate/Keter is meant to be played via email threads and IM, rather than in sessions. It's text-based, with hopefully that letting us GMs keep an eye on everything without having our brains explode.
So, mostly asynchronous, pretty much text-based.
Also, anime as hell.
This has been Ben, your Heroic GM. Yes my ego gets larger when I type that.

This post is a bit long. That being said, it's the entirety of the basic mechanical shape of the game.

Administrative thing: if you're interested in being part of Fate/Keter, please note here [EDIT: or in email to the GM account] whether you would:
A. Prefer to play a mage
B. Prefer to play a Servant
C. Not have a preference, and will allow GMs to assign you as the game requires (which we appreciate, trust me).

Note: If you are playing a Servant, please keep your identity secret OOC! It's more fun that way. same with who you're paired with. This isn't vital, but it is more fun.

If I already know your preference, you don't necessarily have to chime in, but it would be nice.
Please let us know ASAP, as the roster for this game has swelled suddenly to almost maximum capacity, and it's valuable to know who's definitely in. If you haven't made this known by something like midnight Wednesday, we're going to assume you're not that interested, which is sad. Seriously, we didn't expect this to fill up so fast (or at all, really), it's both wonderful and terrifying. I'll try to make sure everyone who's heard of this game gets poked about this by Wednesday.
