We've decided to combine the plotting post and the CR meme into one general meme. It will still be posted on the first of each month, but we will be boosting this meme once the intro posts have been posted, and again during the mid-month announcement. Do check the post again even if it's been a week!

This post is for anyone to use for plotting throughout the month, and generating or suggesting more CR. However, this is separate from any future event plotting posts.


Feel free to use the "Open Mingling Announcements" and "Task Board Recruitment" top levels for better focused organisation. Note: Any large scale group plots should still be posted to the OOC community proper.

For more general plotting and to talk about CR you wish to build, create your own top level following the format below. Put your character's name in the subject line, or your name in the subject line if you have more than one character.

Fill out the form and comment away! The top level relating to the task board has a different form, catered specifically to task board related things, as well.

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

Handy Task Board Link!


Post away and have fun!

Not much of a big, but the name came up as available and I couldn't resist. Machina's journal has changed from drasticmeasure to deus_ex_machina.

That's all!

Hi there, this is Reena here with details for an adventure opened to whoever wants to go. While I've tried to cover most of the details in the log of what's to be found and expected, I'd like to make some clearer, and also explain some objectives that are available on the trip! There is a way to unblock more content, and this will depend on certain actions being taken. Simple ones, but the requirements are somewhat specific...

Hey guys! So as you may or may not know, Weiss Schnee has a monthly newsletter that Apple White is a part of. The theme is "negativity", so Apple is interviewing folks and asking these two questions -

1) What's the worst insult you've ever gotten?
2)And what's your favorite one you've ever given?

If you'd like your character to answer, simply email their responses to with the subject line NEWSLETTER. If you're not comfortable sending me an e-mail, you're welcome to simply drop their answer here - the e-mail just allows the answers to stay a secret until the newsletter reveal for added hilarity/surprise. Either way, please hand 'em over by the 5th so I can arrange everything!

Have a hexcellent day!

Hey guys! We're nearing the end of the Activity Check, so we're throwing up a Danger List for those who have either not commented yet or had missing/erroneous submissions. Remember, you have until Thursday, August 31 11:59PM CDT to submit your AC!

If you know of a player on this list who is inaccessible please let us know! You can either serve as a proxy or we'll give them an extension to submit their AC.

If you decide that you no longer wish to be in the game, please use the Drop post. Otherwise, those who do not respond to the AC will be removed.

Have yet to comment.

 After a lot of thought and consideration, I think it is time for North to bow out of the game. 

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who played with him, and for all the CR! I loved having him in the game, but I've gotten a bit stuck on where to take him and the inspiration's just not coming, which is probably a sign to let go. 

I'll still be in the game with Roxas and possibly a new character, and North is always available for memes and psls and things like that, so feel free to hit me up.

Thanks again :)

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 August 1 through August 31. The deadline is Thursday, August 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.
  • 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.

  • Test Drive threads may be allowed as proofs under the following conditions:

    • Over half of your total AC is from in-game threads/posts.
    • A Test Drive thread was not used for AC last month.
    • You do not currently hold a strike.
    • You are not currently required to do double activity.
    • You are not currently required to do only half activity.

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] flutterkicks
[personal profile] helpsthemedicinegodown
[personal profile] lifetooshort
[personal profile] rarimatiger
[personal profile] reyofsunshine
[personal profile] shanghaiworld
[personal profile] swirlied

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.

After nearly two years in Empat, Shu-Ten is going back to Kouka. His stuff are mainly going to his family, but Michelle can have his survival stuff. I'm still in game with Azuma and J, though.

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 Friday, August 25 and Applications (Canon | OC) open a week later on September 1st. Apps will only be open for four days!

  • 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! As mentioned in the calendar, we’ll be having part one of the event beginning on the 12th of August. This is a post containing the details for part one; as such, feel free to use this post to plot with anybody else you want involved in your character’s false reality.

The epidemic has spread since the beginning of the island being rooted, however, the issue will only begin to arise on the 12th. Almost any Otherworlder who has even remotely stepped on grass or smelled a flower will begin to dream of a life they could have had. This can be a strange AU you may have for your character, an alternate ending in their canon, or just about any crazy thing you can think of. It’s funny, strange, and easy to shrug at first; but as the days pass, these dreams will become more vivid and almost realistic.

By the 15th, Otherworlders who have these vivid dreams will begin to believe that these are reality and that their actual reality are the false ones. It may break some friendships here and there, and it may cause chaos, but this is their reality… for now. Of course, believing and seeing are two different things. If your character suddenly thinks they can turn water into wine but they have no supernatural abilities at all, well… they’ll have a bit of an identity crisis then, won’t they?

To those who wish to opt out of the event, their memories will not be altered in any way. You can either say that their immune system is stronger than another character’s, or simply, they forget their dreams upon waking up. There can be a lot of reasons IC-ly not being affected by the dreams, such as those mentioned. If you’re unsure of what your IC reason for opting out is, drive it by us and we’ll let you know if it’s game breaking or not!

Around the 17th, some scientists will have found the reason for this epidemic. However, they’re still studying the cure for it. The details for the cure will be up before part two, so watch out!

There will be no log for part 1 of the event. Feel free to make your own posts by the 12th.

For any questions about the event, direct all questions to this post. Thanks for reading!
