Ok, so now how do we explain Megatron's disappearance and his reappearance into the RP? * If he even still wants to play..
say that he would be rejoining the RP, and i get the impression Razorclaw
?) meant to take part, as well.
According to A Brief History of the TFL Roleplay
, "Megatron has departed to somewhere unknown." Wherever he went, maybe he took Razorclaw, StarWing, Thrust, and/or Roar along? That way, however and whenever Megatron
rejoins the game, the others can show up in the same scene.
Maybe Megatron, like Galvatron, went to Earth to try to reclaim the Nemesis? Perhaps Megatron (and anyone with him) even reached the Nemesis (or maybe just came close, like Earth orbit) but somehow got knocked offline (same as G1 cartoon Skyfire and live-action movie Megatron, maybe), and the Decepticons on Earth at the Nemesis now could find and reactivate Megatron, etc.?
Or perhaps Megatron/whoever is somewhere near Drumroll--maybe even on one of the other ships near the one Drumroll is on?
Or maybe Megatron/whoever is on Cybertron somewhere; they could meet up with Thundergun and/or Solder somehow.
Jetways--i mean, Sidefire--i mean, Skyfire--JETFIRE! i'm afraid i'm not sure who can give permission for Jetfire to [dock with/come aboard] the Ætherspite. i don't know about any of the other players or their characters, but Makeway would let Cambreaker make that decision--and besides, i still haven't let Makeway out of the CR chamber, so he can't do anything anyhow. Even if he does emerge, he wouldn't know what's going on, so he wouldn't grant a newcomer access. The NPC i borrowed from Rattrap's ship wouldn't assume he had the authority to grant permission, either.
Looks like our Autobots are kind of stuck for now. :-(
Unless you want to edit your post and bring Jetfire out of hyperspace near Drumroll instead of near the Ætherspite? But i'm still the only one with a PC there; i'm waiting to see if the Ætherspite or the Nemesis (or anyone on board either) is the first to receive Drumroll's transmission... or the first to respond/reach Drumroll's position. Plus, i haven't actually gotten (or even asked for) a mod to confirm my plot idea(s) for what might have happened out where Drumroll is.
i could try to whip up another NPC, but i keep getting too attached to them and thinking of them like PCs...
