Subject: Die-Hard & Independent list for FKWar11
Ok, since no-one has said they already had a Die-hard or Independent
list set up already, I set one up at yahoo groups:
Group name FkWar11_DieHard-Indie
Group home page http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FkWar11_DieHard-Indie
Group email FkWar11_DieHard-Indie@y.......
If you want to play as a Die-Hard or Independent in FKWar 11, feel
free to join.
If you want to be the Faction Leader, please say so, as i have
neither the time or interest in being the Die-Hard leader again.

Since McLisa said this discussion is appropriate for the main list,
I'm taking it back there.

I have read all of wars 1-5, 8, 9, 10, and what I've found of war 7,
most of the parts seemed to have no real relation to the initial
And since I was under the impression that all WM were first timers,
aren't they all inexperienced?

Try forbidding these kinds of thing in a war, you run the risk of
turning a lot people off to the war. I sincerely hope you aren't
aiming for that deliberately.

Maybe I'm reading you wrong, but I feel you are coming off as if you
basically have a story idea that you expect a bunch of other FKfans
to write for you, without straying one iota outside where you think
the plot should go.
This definitely *NOT* what a war should be.
>Before making judgement, read the other posts that have come and gone.
I have read the other posts.
So far nothing you or anyone else has said has shaken my initial
impression that you are viewing this as on big fanfic under your
control. Please feel free to do so at any time.
As for being comfortable with the premise and the rules; since you
haven't yet posted the premise, no one can form an opinion of it; and
since the only rule I've really noticed is all posts most connect to
the premise, it makes it rather hard for me to feel comfortable with

case, Please let me know. I'll be sure to make the change as soon as I'm
made aware of it. <g>

I replied to you privately; mcLisa said the discussion was appropriate for
the main list. However, I do not think it was appropriate for you to quote my
private e-mail to you on the main list.
You might want to check with your faction leader, as there have been
extensive discussions going on on the leader's loop pertaining to many
aspects of the war, including some matters you personally seem to be very
