OK, call me a newb or something nasty, but what does "IC" and "OOC" stand for? :o

IC = In Character or In Context
OOC = Out Of Character or Out Of Context

yeah, best way to think of *IC* as opposed to out of character, is to put yourself in the character's mind and wonder if she/he actually knows WTF you're gobbing off about. (ie. talking about the hockey season coming up ISN'T something your character would know)
    more specifically, what you write is usually considered *IC* whenever you have a Faction or Squad bias...Which really starts to get tricky when the easiest way to explain something is use terminology your character wouldn't know about the "game"

    And for a real mind bender, sometimes one has to accept the fact that JOSSH is screwed up in the biblio sections -- especially the part where the US server has accepted the fact that there was a 2nd GVB war ~16yrs ago. (so you might not know that, but did your character not know that too? If you believe that info is public knowledge for your character, then you know more *IC* than OOC...hhehehe bleep) insane
Ah well, try an explanation here: IC/OOC explained by someone other than Muffy

anyways, back on topic: ND plot discussion forum thread
Does GM_Moll have a split personality complex? Will this work beyond attracting the fanboi idjits like flies to shit? Tune in next week when Muffy brings you yet more "it's a slow news day" reports.

Hehe, back in my old D&D days we called it RP, or role-playing. I am actually quite good at it with 10 or so years of D&D goodness. It actually served me well in the Navy setting up war exercises, "OK, now how would they think?" It was always so much fun to hear folks say "Ah sh*t, who knew they could do that?"
Course I had to read many books with bright yellow and red covers kept in double locked drawers and page checked after checkout, but it was worth it to hurt the "superior" forces. :}
