A big 'Thank you!!' to Jenn, our Megumi player, for agreeing to take on the role of the wolf. Her LJ for him is 'inspectorsaitoh'. Please add this journal to your character journal's friend's list.

So, anyone who needs a response to any unsavory incidents in the Gumi, we now have 'the law' on duty, so you had better watch out, Yukishiro!, Oh..and Seta, and any of you other troublemakers out there!
Smiling Megumi
Roughing it without wireless - a quick jaunt has turned. Into a weekend adventure . I'm trying ti get updates d when i can find a signal, but so far... It's been slow going. I will get caught up asap as soon as I get back home.

Come one, come all....and join our favorite 'man of mayhem' in a thread! Tokio just had an encounter with Enishi Liang, or whatever he calls himself these days.

Feel free to have your character encounter him for some great fun and trauma.

Here is the link: http://community.livejournal.com/himura_gumi/163977.html
19th-Jul-2010 11:18 pm - Fire it up baby!
There have been various questions and concerns about the fire thread and here the gist of what I had in mind...

If you want your house/business set on fire it is completely up to you. If not, that's fine, too. If you happen to be psycho/confused/hopped up on some combination of horse drugs and opium cut with rat poison and want to burn stuff down, you can do that, too.

Basically just have fun. :D
18th-Jul-2010 08:41 pm - Can we return this fox?
hi there
No? She's already returned in the form of one we know so well. Gads, is that Mrs. Munson? It really does seem it is! Throw the confetti and lock up the psychos! Welcome back Megumi and hopefully there will be many happy days ahead!!
18th-Jul-2010 06:36 pm - Live action
Though almost all of you guys know this already, for posterity's sake, let me reiterate that RuroKen is (maybe possibly) slated for being a live action!

Here be the link: http://www.tokyohive.com/anime-manga/rurouni-kenshin-to-come-back-as-live-action-movie/

I heard this news first from my friend Masayo who lives in Tokyo. She said it's still in rumor stage but is a big buzz of excitement in Japan and while the studio hasn't said yes it hasn't said no either. I will let you guys know more when I do. :D
18th-Jul-2010 01:44 am - Himura_gumi's Fourth Year
pic#72881732 Flower Garden
On July 7th Himura_Gumi marked its fourth anniversary. Over the years there have been some slow times, some crazy times, but always creative and fun times with lots of good memories, lots of wonderful threads. (I even had fun making 'As the Gumi Turns' soap installments from some of those crazy chats we had, and using the place-holders for 'snarking'! And yes,lol, I still think that Eiji is a *much better* match for Tsubame than that other kid...what's his name...).

Many thanks to all of you, past and present, who have made this such an enjoyable place to rp!
17th-Jul-2010 09:29 am - Welcome Back!
pic#72881732 Flower Garden
A very big *Welcome Back* to Angrybee, our Enishi player!!! We look forward to more merry madness and insane adventures. Can't wait to see what you have in store for him this time!
16th-Jul-2010 08:10 pm - July 16th Chat

Thanks to everyone who made it to chat tonight! It was great to reconnect! Looking forward to rp. I will try to post an edited version of what we talked about gamewise...hopefully within a week. Have a great weekend, everyone!
14th-Jul-2010 06:57 pm - Purge Notice from Live Journal
pic#72881732 Flower Garden
I received an interesting notice from LJ today. In August they will be purging all accounts that have not been logged into for 24 consecutive months. If you are like me, you have multiple LJs. Some of mine are just sitting on the 'back burner' waiting to be needed. Now I am going to be sure to log into each one of them.

Here is most of the text from the Live Journal message:

•Purging suspended accounts: We expect to start purging suspended accounts by August. The hold-up is that we're still modifying and testing scripts to ensure that all posts--including comments and community entries--associated with suspended accounts are properly purged. For more technical details on how these purges will work, please see this post. We'll let you know when these purged usernames become available.

•Purging inactive accounts: One of the benefits of the work we've done to purge suspended accounts is that we will now be able to purge inactive journals and communities too--something you've been requesting for years! A journal is defined as inactive if it has not been logged into for 24 consecutive months. A community is defined as inactive if has not been updated for 24 consecutive months. Once an account is eligible to be purged for inactivity, the owner will be sent an email to alert them of the inactive status. The owner will then have two weeks to log into the journal or post to their community to prevent it from being deleted. If the owner does not log in or post, the account will be deleted and treated like any other deleted account (the owner will have 30 days to log in and undelete the account to prevent it from being purged). Purging inactive accounts will take place sometime after we've begun purging suspended accounts, probably in late August. Again, you can read technical details about suspended and inactive account purges in this post. We'll be sure to let you know when these purged usernames become available.

Hey y'all. I'm leaving wednesday to visit China and Japan for the next two and a half weeks or so, and will be coming back at the beginning of july. Take care! ^_^
2nd-Mar-2010 11:24 pm - out-of-towning
Hey guys. I'm going out of town for a few days on Thursday. Not entirely certain when I'll be back, but probably Saturday or Sunday. Anyway, there won't be much in the way of internet access.

take care!
10th-Feb-2010 12:42 am - Player Update
mod Mt Fuji
Hi Everyone,

I'm glad that some of us are able to continue threading. We have players on hiatus and we hope that they will be able to rejoin the game at some point in time.

Cheree, our Misao player; Jenn, our Megumi player; and Jo, our Saitou player, are currently on hiatus. We hope that eventually they will be able to return.

Karin, our Yahiko player, will be subbing as Saitou, while Jo is taking a break. (Thank you very much for doing this Karin!)

Sev, who played Kaoru, has dropped from the game. We are sorry that she was not able to continue. She did a great job writing for Kaoru.

I know that all of us have busy real-lives, so play maybe slower than it was in the past, but both mods are committed to keep himura_gumi going.

5th-Jan-2010 05:03 pm - New Day, New Plot Arc
mod Mt Fuji
On Wednesday, January 6, the Himura_gumi day will change to Sunday, February 5, 1882.

General Premise:

There is a plot by a group intent on creating chaos... (The details of this group will be revealed in some of the beginning threads, and in a future OOC post.) A second group will take advantage of the ensuing mayhem to achieve a few goals of their own...all of this will include fire and kidnapping.

Several possible threads were mentioned:

--Kenshin leaves Kenji at Akabeko and goes to help fight some fires.

--The Akabeko catches on fire and Tokio and Tae are trapped, but eventually saved by Hiko.

--Tsubame escapes out the front door of a burning Akabeko, taking Kenji and Takagi Tsuyoshi with her, only to be napped along with the young ones.

--Eiji and Yahiko, hung over from a night in Yoshiwara, have some role in all of this mayhem, which their players will have to further define.

*And suggestions and ideas from all the other players, please!*

If you want, please feel free to continue with any older threads that you have that are not finished.
4th-Jan-2010 09:56 pm - Day Change and Plot Arc Are Coming
mod Mt Fuji
Hi Everyone,

Please put up any Jan 8, 1882 placeholders by Tues, Jan 5th. The Himura_gumi time line will skip ahead 4 weeks at about 3 am EST on Wed, Jan 6th.

I hope to have a loose summary of a plot arc premise posted in ooc and emailed to all of you by then. It will have to do with a group of fanatics, fires, and some pirates, as we discussed in the two chats. Those who made it to chat on Jan 3rd even came up with some thread ideas.

To read an edited transcript of the Jan 3rd chat, log into your character's account and go here: http://gumi-mods.livejournal.com/12171.html

Thanks to all who attended the chats on both Dec 28th and Jan 3rd. We appreciate all of your input!

mod Mt Fuji
I forgot to mention at chat that you should try to put up any January 8th placeholders this week, so we can move the game ahead as soon as possible after our January 3rd group chat.

The beginning of a new year is usually the time when people make resolutions. The Gumi Mods are no different. Our resolution for the new year is to encourage all the players to post at least once a week in one of their threads. (This will start once we do the time skip.) We will have a 'standard' message that we will email you, if we notice that you didn't write at least one post the previous week. Everyone will recieve exactly the same reminder. It will be something like:

"You forgot to post to HG last week. Please remember that you need to do one post in at least one of your threads every week to help keep the game moving forward. Please post as soon as possible. Thanks for your prompt attention."

Wishing all of you a happy and safe new year, and see you at chat on Jan 3rd if you are free!

29th-Dec-2009 12:10 am - Group Chat - December 28, 2009
mod Mt Fuji
Thanks to everyone who was able to attend tonight's chat. It was suggested that we skip ahead in time about a month. (If you weren't there tonight to give your opinion about how far to skip ahead, please email one of the mods.)

Sev suggested an overall plot arc, and everyone was given the 'homework' to try to come up with some specific ideas about it. The mods really appreciated all of your comments and ideas. To see an edited version of tonight's discussion you can go to the chat link at the left side of the ooc page, or use this link: December 28th Chat.

Our next chat is on Sunday, January 3, 2010 (good grief, does time fly) at 9 pm EST or 8 pm CST. Everyone is welcome. If you aren't able to attend, please be sure to email plot/thread suggestions.
4th-Dec-2009 02:08 pm - Day Change to January 8th
pic#72881732 Flower Garden
Hi Again!

I was hoping to have the day changed by now to Jan 8th. (Thank you to those who posted placeholders for Jan 7th.) Jan 8th will be the last day of the snow storm sequence for those of you who want to do another day of 'snow meltdown' action.

I will be sending another email soon to see how far ahead we should skip, as the general consensus was to skip ahead in the game. This should probably be discussed in a chat, but the way things are going time-wise, I am going to email everyone for their opinion first. Hopefully, more players will have time to thread after the holiday rush, or during vacation for those who are students.

20th-Nov-2009 01:47 pm - Placeholders for January 7th
Hi Everyone,

If you think you might want to play a thread on January 7th, could you please try to post a placeholder as soon as possible. I'm hoping that anyone who wants to reserve a spot will be able to get a placeholder up by the end of Monday, November 23rd. Please remember to lock it for 'members'.

Thank you to everyone who has responded to my email about day change. We had a suggestion to skip ahead. If we decide to do that, we will need to decide how far ahead to skip, so please be thinking about that in case we go that route.

Hey everyone.

There's lots of stuff going on in my life, where it makes it difficult for me to both remember and find the time to participate in our little RP community. I'm hopeful that in a few months things might lighten up (but there's no guarantee), but in the meantime I hate to leave folks hanging.

Obviously we want to see forward momentum with stories and plots, and I want to do what's best for the community. This is a place where we all play in the sandbox. :) If that means Misao goes on hiatus for a while, or if I should go ahead and hang up her obi now so you have a chance to find someone who can devote time to playing her... please let me know what you the moderators and players feel would be best. But I definitely don't foresee me being available until at the earliest after the start of the new year.

20th-Sep-2009 01:07 pm - Hey fellow Gumi players!
Just a head's up...

Things are piling up for me as school, work, and my volunteering activites kick it into high gear. So my posting may be limited to once a week. I'll let everyone know if I have to take a week off.

*hugs everyone*

Thanks for understanding!

14th-Sep-2009 09:48 pm - @_@
Argh - You Idiot!
I am sorry for the snail like pace of posting. I am seriously under the weather and am hoping to be feeling better a little later this week.
*hugs to you all*
14th-Sep-2009 04:23 pm - Well well
It looks like there is one last thing to squeal over after all.


9th-Sep-2009 01:48 am - Quitting
Hello everyone,

I have decided to leave the community. Please remove this journal and yakuza_hime from your friends lists.

Best of luck in the future.

That was an absence much longer than intended, but here I am. I should be all caught up on my threads now, but if I've missed one, just let me know and I'll jump on it.

Lesse... Kaoru and Kenshin in the kitchen (wee, alliteration!), check. Aoshi and Kaoru talking trash on the streets, check. Yahiko running into his BAD ASS sensei, check. And Megumi and Kaoru doing the girl talk, check check check. Anything else?
