Well, I'm sorry to inform you of the obvious but I haven't finished my RP post yet.

I was rather busy/ the headache only subsided recently.

I'm going to work on my post after a few hours.

Seriously, maybe it would be better to post with Daisuke first since I'm really stuck with Keith's character.

@Batsu: Don't worry, Daisuke won't be a pushover either. Actually, he went under an intense training and mastered his powers to an even higher level. He's going to be a beast in combat.

Excuse me guys. I'm experiencing a terrible headache since more than a day. It's also the reason behind my delay with  the RP. It drains my creativity away so I couldn't progress much with my post. Although good news it might be getting better. So expect me posting my reply with Keith in tomorrow morning. I very much hope this is going to be my last delay.
 
Anyways, I plan to introduce Daisuke to the RPO as well. Preferably by defending the Ebisu HQ against the Numbers.

Excuse me but it seem you have to experience a delay. I didn't have time to work on my RP so I have to postpone my reply till the evening. 
 
I just thought it's better if I tell you guys this.

So...with the new short-cuts in order I believe I can finish up my first post with Keith in 10-12 hours or so. Sleep included.
Compared to the 2 weeks of previous wait that's surely a lot of improvement. 
Perhaps it will come at the expense of quality and the entire thing being a bit too sudden. Well, let's see how it turns out...

I'm back!
Well, I had my birthday party and were busy with my work and other duties.
 
Anyways, it seems I have to do my 5th rewrite.
Too many events are happening and my old RP post just won't work. I know I can only blame my slow pace. I don't have that much time for creative thinking like I used to. Oh well, I guess I have to skip the 4 pages long introductory part and just jump straight to the action. It makes Keith's entrance dull and would seriously harm my post from the sense of literature but I have a feeling unless I post with Keith soon I'm going to be left out from this RP forever.

Shit, rewriting my RP post the 4th time.

You can wonder why. Well, there are several reasons. Most impotnatnly it has been a long while since I last used Keith White. So I have to pretty much recreate his entire character.

Anyways, it's rather selfish of me to except you to wait until I finish my post. So let me mention a few plotholes the RP currently has and ways to mend them.

1.) First and foremost: Washigton DC. In the old "How the Mighty Have Fallen" RP, Ray Donovan used a nuclear missile on the capital city, destroying it and turning its environment into a nuclear wasteland. That would make half of the RP posts totally useless since Washington DC no longer exists.

Solution: Assistance from the White Corps, obviously. After Ray Donovan's treachery and plunging the USA into emotional, financial and political crisis, Keith White offered to aid America to rebuild Washington DC and save the supernation from collapse. Using the White Corps' super science he turned the radiation into harmless particles.

2.) Time discrepancy between the Kisekian army's conquest and Zella's assault on Washigton DC. Even if ND has teleportation and the Kisekian Air Force is several times faster than modern jets, it still takes considerable time. If anything the fact each nation's government had a chance to react and even mobilize their forces is a proof enough that ND's conquest tour took many-many hours. By not counting the bureaucratic procedures and other things and just using a generous estimate, that would be at least 12 hours. Now, compare it with Zella's invasion which prett much went in real time and only took an hour at best.

Solution: I suggest to use two different timelines to continue this RP. One for the ongoing battle in Washignton DC. Another for the Kisekian Army's conquest. There could be also a tertiary timeline for the Atahlia vs Carmilla fight since it seemingly takes place further on in the process of ND's invasion.

Yeah, I agree that adding separate timelines is a pain. But the advantages easily outweigh the drawbacks. First off, it allows us to keep track of the events more properly. Second, if there's convincing interval between these timelines it's possible for someone to fight multiple battles "at once". Technically they still happen in order but this method would allow a much more flexible style. Third, speaking of flexible RP style this "timeline method" would allow the story to flow on several plotlines at once. There would be less waiting for other users to post in the RP.

3.) Why Keith didn't do anything despite the Vice verse is in the middle of apocalyptic chaos? Why he didn't do anything even after Keith's dear home country was under attack? ND even destroyed an entire city and dropped 3 nukes on another. What is he waiting for?

Solution: Well, let's say Keith is more of an uncaring bastard. That and he was waiting for a certain chance to arise. He's coolheaded and don't wish to make hasty actions in a situation where ND can take over the world anytime.

That's all for now. I can't promise anything since my work scheclude messes up m writing plans constantly. But I can promise that I will try to finish my RP post as soon as possible.

@Batsu: Great! Looks like my suggestion found open ears.

I'm glad you are using Batsu again.

Maybe I should create a Mecha pilot character as well.:p

@Raseri: It'll.
So far I'm about 3/4 done with it. It's all about the introduction and inner monolouge. I'm going to write the real action down tonight.
Yeah, and it's going to be pretty damn long considering I have to filter out the plotholes none of the Vicers seemed to notice.

@Newdeath: Sorry. I rewrote the entire scenario twice so I'm only halfway done.

Unless something major happens I can release my post tonight.

Again and again. Excuse me for the long delay.

@Raseri: Well, it's just the thing I get rather pedantric when it comes for my first post in the RP?
I take the whole deal about establishing the character seriously. Especially since the reboot version of Keith apparently hadn't posted in an RP yet.

@Raseri: Alright. I don't know what do you hold for ND in this RP but I guess it's going to be quite a shocker.
Yeah, one more reason I should hurry with my RP post.

RPG » Zuukei's Biography

@Zuukei: Alright. My mistake then.
 Although there are more appropiate terms for "geniuses" like those. Example:
Combat Prodigy
Fighting Genius
Combat Tactitian
 Etc...
 
In fiction you often have dumb characters that make up smart strategies on the fly to outwit their enemies. I'm not saying your character one of those, though. From the looks of it he's going to be the calm analytic type or the kind which likes to play dirty tricks.  
I say he looks good and I'm waiting for the continuation of your bio.

@Zuukei: Swordsmen and geniuses are pretty much the most common RP-ers on the Vice.

This isn't true. There are very little true genius characters when it comes to it and very little swordsmen as well. Maybe if you're talking about the Pre-Reboot Vice Universe.

ND

Actually, there are quite a few swordsmen in the reboot. Although the kind of which depends solely on swordsmanship and nothing else is rare, indeed.

@Raseri: Interesting. Yet another reason why we should try our best to play this RP till its end. (Something in which the community often fail at, regretfully).

@Raseri: Maybe I did. Afterall "achieving godhood" is pretty ambiguous in fiction.

@Raseri: Again, how's that different from the old Vice where the universe was at the whims of the villains?
Getting surprise power-ups is fine but  remember that RP-ing is never about the victory. I'm afraid you may invent new abilities to just avoid your defeat.

@Asune: Ridiculous? Hehe ND could become a god right on the spot if he wanted to XD

ND

I hope it's just a bluff.
I sure as hell don't want things return as they were in the Reboot.
Godlike characters better to stay away from the reboot world.
