I really don't mind one way or another. I like the game, and I enjoy playing Lyra. I'm looking forward to doing more, and I'm actually loving the focus on action in the game.
What I'm hearing, and what's making me stop to say, "Maybe we should call this," is that people are OOC upset or frustrated with how things are going. Shammy said something about you being ready to walk away from the game, and being frustrated and touchy. The way that came across was that the players, and not the characters, are having those feelings. That's kind of no-no land for me. If people are having bad real life feelings, I'm ready to bow out.
I'm totally cool with glossing over things. When I posted via Lyra that the other two weren't worth saving, Lyra was really upset because she was being ganged up on and the others were not helping. She had good IC reasons for saying what she did. Afterwards, Tahline's character was very adversarial, so this is something that's been developed, and brought up over and over again. After Lyra's initial outburst, I really wanted to tone things down a bit, because it seemed like it might be a problem (and I got a PM to that effect). At the same time, she's not the kind of character who's going to back down to Tahline. If Tahline continues to rudely pursue the matter, they're going to squabble.
As far as not responding to Tahline's post, they were having some incredibly rude banter back and forth. I felt that she wouldn't really go out of her way to respond to Tahline at that point, so I left it to the other two characters to handle it. I was mostly just trying to avoid any further confrontation between the two of them, if that makes sense. I wasn't, as a player, trying to ignore anyone.
Again, if it's an OOC problem...and it can't be settled easily, it's probably just best if I step away. I really don't mind doing it, and I have no hard feelings any which way.
