OOC Community of Sora no Hikari
As some of you may or may not have heard, in the past few weeks there has been some work started on setting up a forum for the community. We're hoping in the next little bit to move the rp threads over there where we'll be better able to keep active threads up top, as well as a few other good reasons to switch.
One of the biggest positives to switching to the forum is a clearer separation of the crack and canon. Everyone here who is already an approved member/character(s) will be able to transfer it/them over to the forum. There you have a choice, you can keep your character(s) for both crack and canon, or decided to only play one and free it up on the other game for someone else. I'm going to be starting another ad campaign since the last one worked pretty well, but we're still in the set up phases so you have some time to think about this. If you're going to play both, you will be able to set up two separate accounts to keep the storylines separate (for example, crack Neji is currently battered and hospitalized and Sasuke married and back in Konoha while obviously in canon that isn't the case for either)
There has also been a suggestion about bending the 2 character max rule in favor of allowing some of the minor/supporting cast to be picked up. You know, the characters that don't get much screen time but sure do help when it comes to moving the plot along or even giving us more bodies to fill teams for missions and such (Genma, Hiashi, Kotetsu... etc). It would be along the lines of 2 major characters, 1 minor or something. It's an interesting idea, and any feedback would be welcome on it.
anyways, as I said, we're still fine tuning things before we invite you guys over to get started. Any thoughts, comments or requests for the forum will be helpful. And if you already know that you will/will not be coming over please let us know. We will still be running on AIM as well as keeping the coms here up, but it would be nice if everyone came over with us. so far it seems the idea is crack storyline will continue where it is, canon is going to start over, picking up around the time frame where Naruto returns from training which will give our Akatsuki and Oto-nin more to play around with. again, we're still tweaking it.
looking forward to hearing back from you guys on this one
