"That's some good shit, dude," the man began to laugh. "We should have you tell jokes at our dinners. If anyone actually attempted to do that, they would be dead before this door even opens."
The man reached down into his pocket, and pulled out a knife.
Breaking from one of the groups, a tall dark-skinned man approached the two of them. Placing his hand on the elevator door, he grinned. "Do you have business here?"
"Getting involved in this town's business would be stupid, Wellington," Lisa began. "We should just move on, we're not GU agents."
"What?" Lisa asked, shocked. "What do you mean? We should be glad that he did such?"
"Have you even been there before?" Lisa asked. "I don't know if it would be a good idea for us to stop in unfamiliar places."
"Mr. Li?" Blossom spoke up after noticing Li standing in the doorway. "What did they say?"
"Why do you guys care about this?" Marshall asked, finally breaking his silence. "We're not on vacation here, this is life-or-death. Why do we keep going on about this shit? The Dream Eaters, the red comet and all this other shit doesn't matter. Can we not take this seriously?"
No one responded before Marshall stomped out of the room.
Chase McFly - While Chase helped a lot in Season One and his character, Chris Wellington, had a ton of character development and arcs, the same cannot be said about his role in Season Two.
Chris has barely been seen, rarely does anything beyond one-line sentences that generally just rush the plot and/or say something odd, and when he does do something - it is not generally the best. Finding Scooby-Doo puzzles in bookshelves, needing to randomly break out of a window instead of leaving through the door, running wild and shooting the hell out of people hiding in cabinets, and destroying the bow of a ship at random.
All of these things were shortly removed after being added, due to the quality of them. While Chase has been working on actual plans lately and doing better in his replies, I still feel the need to mention all of this.
With those issues aside, Chase is a dedicated roleplayer and always replies when needed, he's also generally very good at writing when he actually tries. So kudos to him for that.
Downtown Freezy - Like Chase, DTF is a great roleplayer when he tries. He usually creates very detailed replies that are decently long, and have fair dialogue. However, with that said, he also gets very bored easily and loses interest in his characters, leading them to becoming non-existant in scenes or just repeating the same joke lines.
The private investigator mumbled to himself, "Nice place you got here, Andy..."
"Nice place you've got here, Isaiah." Blackmore muttered.
He has good skills, just needs to improve on his commitment.
Endercat TM - Good roleplayer, generally. But she can be more active in planning and discussion, usually her understudy makes all the plans for her character. I understand she's busy often, but a bit more effort would be good.
Gallibon the Destroyer - New user, great to have here. Could work on making Zade a bit more important though, the character really hasn't done much since his introduction episode.
Messenger of Heaven - No collusion, no commitment, no nothing. Out of the three episodes Melissa was in this season, MoH only replied twice. That's kinda really bad, especially seeing as there's supposed to be a Melissa arc coming up. At this point, I feel like it's time for her to show us some bit of effort or talks need to happen about the future of the character. It's a true shame too, as MoH is generally a good RPer.
Octopus Wizard - Good RPer, good writer, good planner. No issues at all with him, hopefully he keeps up the good work.
Professor Hartington - Fine RPer, he needs to have more commitment though. He generally has to be spoonfed or baits characters before pulling them out of episodes either before they join or in the middle of them doing so.
Quinton1721 - When he tries, he is one of the better RPers and writers on this wiki, however he often resorts to shitposting, throwing fits when his ideas are turned down, refusing to take conversations/ideas seriously, and often neglects his character, Marshall Rooke, in favor of his other character, Wen Li.
Wen Li has a detailed background that covers various periods of his life and this is really great. It's a good read, and a great example of how pages should be written. But in contrast, Marshall has almost nothing. I had to write the personality and appearance section on the page, Octopus Wizard had to write the background. Quinton just did not work on the page. In most S2 episodes, Marshall barely did anything. Just sat on a porch, complained about purple bugs, and screeched various cusses at a blind man.
The only time Quinton takes interest in Marshall is when he has outlandish ideas or shitposts.
Marshall will kill himself.
Marshall will break, cry, and scream.
Marshall is gay, hell yeh. I am so happy he's gay.
Marshall is gonna become a monk. He is tired of being a big baddie.
Marshall will meet a HOT woman on the ferry, and she takes him to her room. There, she reveals she's actually a man.
Just earlier he edited Marshall's appearance to have a long tattoo on his left arm because a creep on Discord looked like such. It's just very abhorrent treatment of a character that was once deemed to be a "main."
On top of this, we have the Silivia segment - an arc entirely done by Quinton1721, for some reason. It's very rushed and barely planned, even though it has the potential to be great.
There are several issues with these scenes:
In every episode, a character enters Plant Empire and leaves a resident gasping in shock.
First it was Santo, resident villain of the week who wanted to beat the shit out of Wen Li and then disappeared, never having a role again. Then Jocasta, who needed Da's help. Then Sunshine, Li's 90+ year old mother.
The next issue is how it's written: Characters often know things that they shouldn't. People dressed in robes (because it had to be obvious that they were baddies) walked into Plant Empire and demanded to buy a pepper from Da. Da gave them the pepper and then began to tell Jocasta how he just knew off the bat that those men were members of the long-dead cult, Resediennes. There's not a single explanation for how he knew this, he just did.
In another scene (that's also a Ninjago rip), Shen Li has visions of his family, revealing that his son, Li, is alive and that Resediennes was active again.
These segments are often rushed too, written quickly in a matter of hours because he didn't work on them during the episode. And due to such, the quality suffers highly.
I think Quinton1721 is a good RPer, a helpful editor on the wiki, and good at making plans. But at the same time, there's a lot to be improved on and I hope he can work on it.
South Ferry - Great RPer, had one of the best characters. It's a true shame that he left the RP.
"Well, remember how Steven told us that were theories it was connected to some hidden leader? This book claims that it's the soul of the god, or well, Power Xeren and that he was killed by others like him."
"Hey, Chris, Marshall?" Atticus began. "Do you remember that light we've seen a few times? The red one?"
"We just wait," Atticus replied as he pulled a large book off a shelf and began to open it.
"Then let's keep moving," Lisa said, pushing ahead into the crowd. "I doubt he's among this filth."
Stepping out of her car, Lisa slammed the door shut and stepped over to Aaron's car. "What have we been called here for? What lead does he have?"
"Are you sure this place is safe, Mr. Li?" Blossom asked, reaching her hand into her brown jacket and pulling out a pair of knives and a gun. She slowly placed them on the ground in front of her.
[[Blackmore Veers|Blackmore]] rested his elbows against the bow of the ferry as he took a drag of his cigarette. Staring into the sunrise through the smoke, he contemplated what he had listened to in the night they departed. Guard duty, he had told them, but their conversation was just too enticing to depart from. Possessions. [[Dream Eaters]]. What a marvel to hear. Blackmore reflected to himself on the individuals he had met. He would have liked to known [[Samuel Brownlee]] further.
"Enough of that." He snapped himself out of it. [[Euclid#Aiola|Aiola]] was now in sight, and with that, peace and quiet. Once the ferry docked, they would be near the city of Nirvana, a place famous due to its history with a group named Nirvanists, religious historians dedicated towards documenting the world and its creation. From there, they would have an easy journey, with the [[Chang Monastery]], a place where [[Wen Li|Li]] deemed it safe to rest due to his long history with the residents, located in the mountains next to the city.
The large red and white accented ferry docked. Stairs were let down for passengers to exit onto the boardwalk. The first off was [[Zade Santello|Zade]]. He let in a deep breath, smelling the salty air before walking forward. He was followed by Blackmore, with [[Marshall Rooke|Marshall]] toting the group's luggage behind him. [[Atticus Anoethite|Atticus]], [[Blossom Cane|Blossom]], [[Chris Wellington|Chris]], and Li departed and met up with the rest of the group.
Jumping out of the crowd, Atticus unrevealed a large scythe and aimed it at Li.
"You truly are the lowest scum in history. And that is why I will use Xeren's GOD-SLAYING SCYTHE."
With that, Atticus threw the weapon at Li.
Diving into the crowd of his soldiers, Atticus disappeared from view.
"YEAH, DESTROY HIM!" Atticus yelled.
Watching as the Muné shore slowly disappeared from sight and blended into the golden-orange ocean, Li leaned against the railing at the back of the ferry. "I'll miss him. Glad he's happy."
Wiping her tears away, Blossom turned to face Zade and Blackmore. "Are you guys coming with us?"
