But, could you move he rules to res seven, and maybe bios could go res eight. Shouldnt the multi res be the rp? Sorry, just wanting to help. I really hope this rp gets more players. I'm from Pacific time and i get SO bored at night, I stay up until like, two or three AM....

Welcome to the late-night RP! This is just a place where late-night RPers can gather since not many people are on then. By this I especially mean those in Pacific Time, but also late-nighters from time zones east of that. Don't expect this place to be active during the day; it's nocturnal. So if you find yourself bored at night, come here to talk! <p> Rules&diams <br> 1. No godmodding. <br> 2. No bullying. <br> 3. Find books for se<_>x. <br> 4. Keep it appropriate enough for say... an eleven year old. <p> It's a multires, so enjoy :)

A minor Wells work, but still worth reading. Most of the futer tech is dated, but I liked the aeroplanes. What stands out is Wells understanding of people.
