[sticky entry] Sticky: TEST DRIVE: AUGUST

Welcome to [community profile] empatheias' test drive meme. This test drive is to help interested players test their characters in the game's environment. We've included a few prompts that incorporate specific elements of the game, though you'll find all of them have a lot of leeway for players to get as creative as necessary. Before diving in, here are a few things we'd like to remind everyone about the game in general:

  • Date reminders. Reserves open Tuesday, July 25 and Applications (Canon | OC) open a week later on August 1st.

  • OC Reminder! Just a quick reminder that original characters are allowed. Those interested can also use the test drive. OCs do not need to be reserved.

  • Emotions are key! Empatheias' premise focuses on how anyone's emotions can affect their environment, be it big or small. While not every emotion will cause a reaction, significant ones definitely will. How much effect a character will have will ultimately be up to you, the player. Also, while we're giving a lot of leeway for the test drive, keep in mind that there will be some limits in the actual game.

  • Everyone has an amulet. All characters have a unique amulet that is specialized for them. It will contain all of their emotion drops and it serves as the network device. Remember, communication is telepathic. Otherwise, it works basically the same.

  • Assume the character is already in the game. Because "OMG WHERE AM I IS THIS REAL LIFE" threads aren't going to be very helpful in this test drive! Plus those are going to happen in-game, anyway. So to make things easier, just assume that they've been around at least a week or so. Still learning the ropes, but not a complete "first day" experience.

  • First or third person allowed. Your threads can be in either first or third, but we'd advise being flexible about it. Remember, these threads can also be used in your application for samples! Reminder: We only require one sample and it can be done in either format. We have also made a change to our sample requirements, so look over the Applications page!

  • Transfer to in-game. If accepted, you can assume threads made on the Test Drive happen in-game if the scenario can reasonably fit. These threads do not count toward AC.

Now with that out of the way, here are some prompts you guys can work from!

Prompts )

For your threads, put the Character Name and the Canon in the subject line to help readily identify them. You're also welcome to use more than one prompt for respondents to choose from. If you have any questions or want to brush up on the game information, refer to the Game Information entry. Otherwise, tag around and have fun!

Hello everyone! Every activity check will run throughout the last 7 days of every month, coinciding with the opening of Reserves.

While you're going through your activity, don't forget to use the survey on the Emotion Tracker if you find any particularly emotional threads!

All proofs must fall within July 1 through July 31. The deadline is Monday, July 31, 11:59 PM CDT.

You can choose one of the following options:

  1. 1 entry + 7 comments.
  2. At least two threads totaling 10 comments.

Here are some clarifications:

  • You can use multiple threads for each option.
  • You count your tag comment, not the other character's (so 7-10 comments made by you).
  • Threads must be at least 2 comments long. No 1 comment submissions!
  • You cannot use threads made within your own entry for either option. All threads must be made somewhere else.

    • Exception: You can use multiple threads made within event/mingle entries without restriction.

  • Your top level comments in event/mingling logs are considered as one giant thread. Threads made in reply to other top levels are considered as different threads.
  • Test Drive threads are not currently usable for activity.
  • Ideally, all proofs must begin within the month to count. However, if necessary we'll accept threads that started within the last seven days of the previous month so long as the majority of tags occur within the current month.
  • All entries and threads that START during the last three days of the month will not count for this month's AC.

    • Exception: Any events that are held during this timeframe are excluded and threads started during these events can be counted.

Anyone who is on Hiatus for more than three weeks is exempt. Do not try to use the hiatus as a way to bypass the Activity Check—we will notice! If you were on hiatus for at least two weeks of the month, you only need to provide half of the amount of proofs.

The list of those who earned a free pass during last December's AC can be viewed here.

If you do not have all of the requirements, you can get a strike if you at least have some proof of activity. This means you will have to completely pass the following Activity Check to clear it, or be forced to drop. Thus you can fail once and then pass the next round to have a clean slate again. However, you must have some proof of activity to qualify for a strike.

The following journals have a strike and must complete this month's activity check to pass:

[personal profile] 10_20_15_5_50
[personal profile] despiteeverything
[personal profile] ortion
[personal profile] pr159
[personal profile] raretalentindeed
[personal profile] ribbonbon
[personal profile] soulsrob
[personal profile] zephlyrt

Here are some copy/paste forms that you can use:

1 entry + 7 comments 10 comments

NEW PLAYERS/CHARACTERS: If you were accepted during the month of the activity check, you only need to give one link for this time only. If you have the full requirements, then go ahead and use the above form. Otherwise, use the following:

If you have any questions about any of this, feel free to contact us.

Hey guys! Just letting you know that I'm gonna be taking a short hiatus until July 25th. I'm out of town, and while I'll be tagging a bit on the Test Drive, it's a bit harder to do game tags. So Fluttershy will be on autopilot for the rest of the week, probably off training her wyvern a bit more.

Anyway, I'll be back to tags when I get back! If you need to reach my, you can PM Shy's journal, or get me on my plurk, [ profile] usamichan13. See you guys later!

Hello! This is Hotaru, and I just wanted to mention that I'll be taking a hiatus for a while. This effects Azuma ([personal profile] sharpstring), J ([personal profile] sweetjoker), and Shu-Ten ([personal profile] originalryokuryuu). They'll all be crystalized in their homes and where J is will remain a mystery.

Hi guys, it's still me, Auste.

I just changed my Kay journal from [personal profile] kayssistant to my old one, [personal profile] yatagarasu so...yeah. Actually that's all. In case you'e wondering if someone stole my character or if someone else suddenly took over my Kay threads, ahahaha.

It's been a while since we had a love meme, so have at it. Plus, show the newbies some love! Shoving people into trash cans is optional. Being shoved into trash cans is also optional.

♥ Post a comment with your name and the characters you play.
♥ Comment to others! Show your love (and appreciation, and joy, and courage, and...)! For a player, a thread, a tag, an icon, a friend, whatever your heart desires. Elios is watching!
♥ Have fun!

Hey all, just a heads-up that I'm slower even than usual because my computer broke (bah). I won't call an official hiatus because I'm still able to do the odd thing here and there, but I'm tagging at glacial speed just now. Sorry!! Hopefully I'll catch up soon and y'all are good with backtagging. ;)

This only affects Hawke here. =)

Hello everyone!

Jax here! Just letting you know I'm going to be on hiatus from tonight until the 25th of this month! I won't have any access to the internet beyond a few spots here and there so my girls will be completely out for the count!

So Usagi Tsukino ([personal profile] lightthedarkness), Snow White ([personal profile] onebadapple), and Alice Liddell ([personal profile] madcuriosity) will be on auto-pilot but unavailable. I will be more than happy to backtag once I'm back though!

See you in two weeks!

Heyyyy, Kyio here with a heads up that I'll more than likely be very slow for the rest of the week ... and possibly the rest of the month, depending. My job is trying out an experimental 3am-11am work shift for a few weeks, and as the one who ended up on it, I'm having more trouble adjusting to it than I was expecting to. I already put myself on hiatus as a precaution, but now it seems I'll actually be making use of it until I adjust.

This affects both Rorona ([personal profile] piealchemist) and Zero ([personal profile] absolutevalue), Rorona a bit more heavily since she's newer and it's tough for me to play a happy, jokey type when I'm real mad about my lack of sleep, haha. I just posted with her though, so I'll still try my best in that regard when I'm able to. Sorry in advance, and thanks for your patience o7

Hi folks, Frudence here. I play Riku Replica ("Arden") on this account and Sha Gojyo on [personal profile] inthecenterfold, coming off a month-long hiatus starting on the 11th.

To prep for that, I'm dipping into my inbox and starting tags tonight/tomorrow. I'm going to send out the tags I owed before hiatus, just in case anyone wants to continue our threads. Feel free to drop them too. I just don't like assuming things and I don't have everyone on plurk either.

Thanks everyone! Feel free to hit me up here too, if you want to direct my attention to something I missed.

Hey guys,

Caprica here. Just to let everyone know I'm going on hiatus since I'm moving end of the month and all. Things to pack, sort, clean etc and all that fun stuff. I'll be moving in around the 26th or so, hopefully with being able to sort internet by then and all without any time in between. But just in case I figured it would be a good idea to put up a hiatus. I'll be around but slower until closer to the time, just wanted to make sure I was covered in case I don't manage ac, basically.

Applies to Laphicet here.

Hey everyone, just letting you know I'll be on hiatus from today until I'm not entirely sure when. I really injured my back through stupid means, so once that heals up, I should be back in full force.

This applies to [personal profile] keatoff & [personal profile] hakingitup.

Thank you!

WE ALL SURVIVED THE ISLAND DIDN'T SINK—this time. But things aren't exactly "back" to normal, either. Although everyone will be able to breathe a little easier and deal with any consequences from their overloving actions, looks like things have been set up for future interesting things.

Also. Did you guys we're almost to our 3rd year anniversary? It's next month! Huzzah!

We had a few requests for one of these, so we're going to try it out and see how it goes!

This post is for anyone to use for general monthly plotting. This is separate from any future event plotting posts and should not be confused with a CR Meme! It's more for basic plotting for the month and mostly to help those who want to organize something through the Task Board.

This post will be linked to all incoming applicants, so please do check again.


Feel free to use the "Open Mingling Announcements," "Task Board Recruitment," and any other designated subthreads for better focused organization. Note: Any large scale group plots should still be posted to the OOC community proper.

For more general plotting, comment to the entry to create your own thread. Put your Name in the subject line.

If you have more than one character either use one comment for all of your characters OR use one top level and sub-levels for each character you have! This will reduce clutter on the post. If you do multiple sublevels, put the character's name in the subject line for easier identification.

Fill out the form and comment away!

Tip! If mentioning tasks, include both the task ID and a brief two-word blurb to easily identify (eg., ST0602 giant fish).


Post away and have fun!
