Hey guys!

Overcastwatch cast have built a plot for you guys we'd like to go ahead and get rolling alongside of everything else that's going on thi smonth. AS A GENERAL PSA we are referencing drug usage/trafficking and a few other mature subjects, so anything else is going under the cut- aside from a note this is completely 100% opt-in and you do not have to be involved/affected by it if you don't want to be.

Plot begins in 3...2...1... )

Howdy y'all. So I was eyeing some of the Enforcers tasks (particularly gt0505 and st0505) going on this month and was wondering if there was anyone interested in getting a plot going.

For those interested feel free to comment here and let me know. I also have a plurk, though I rarely if ever, use it, for those who are more interested in planning things out there.

Heya folks! Slip here aka the person you have to blame for the switch to the survey format for emotion tracking.

My apologies for the delayed update on this one, but here's the Emotion Tracker enhancement I've completed:

[Empatheias] Character Emotion Tracker Data (V1.0)

To add a little more insight to this, the request is to have a per month tally of a character's entries, including a per month sum if possible. These are all easily copy-pasteable to spreadsheet programs such as Google Spreadsheets, etc. The basic functionality for this request has been completed, and as far as my testing goes, everything works as it should!

As you can see, an extravagant UI isn't actually that high on my priority list but I'll try to prettify the thing when I have the time. That aside, I welcome any and all suggestions for other enhancements. Since the current emotion tracker format partially my responsibility, I'd like to do everything within my power to make it easier and more convenient for everyone to use and keep track of!

Also if anyone wants to make an HTML/CSS layout for this page I would appreciate any and all help on the matter if only because I admittedly got lazy on the HTML/CSS end and decided to focus on functionality.

That's all for now! Please feel free to reply to this post or contact me on Plurk for any questions, comments, or suggestions!

Hey guys! I'm going to be taking a hiatus for the month of May to kind of recharge the mental batteries a little bit. The last few weeks have been super crazy with a new job and it's been a lot to juggle on top of keeping up with RP. Thank you everyone for being supportive and understanding and I will be back soon.

Ren will be getting crystallized and poor Yuuki will have a shiny, inanimate, room mate for a month. Have fun ;)

Hey friends!

The past month got away with me, and I have finals and wedding things (my sister's) which has been and is eating up a lot of time at the moment. I sort of dropped the ball with a lot of people thread wise and wanted to apologize because I hate leaving people waiting or dropping threads. But I might drop the majority of the ones from early last month just to start afresh. If people want I'll definitely continue individual threads however.

I also wanted to let people know that things will be fairly slow until midway through next week! Finals will be finished then and the wedding over. I'll have a lot more time on my hands after that! Anyway, this affects Yuuki here ([personal profile] sunflowering) and Kija ([personal profile] backstory).

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 Sunday, April 30 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.

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 April 1 through April 30. The deadline is Sunday, April 30, 11:59PM 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 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] ephemerous
[personal profile] forcelightning
[personal profile] hammernhasslehoff
[personal profile] hatesviolence
[personal profile] happydreamed
[personal profile] megabytes
[personal profile] opportunitycosts
[personal profile] thegreatmistdetective
[personal profile] virusbusting

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.

I really hate to do this but due to RL stuff going on plus my two jobs, I’m dealing with far too much stress at the moment and very little time. Dray’s going back home but I wanted to thank you all for the fantastic CR he had in the few time he’s been in the city.

This game is great and I’m really sad I have to let it go, you are wonderful. Take care!

Hey everyone, Ryn here!

This is going to be the “official” interest check/signup for the Sosyne rebuild log that I plan on putting up in the next couple of days with enough interest. It’s not going to be anything huge, but getting a head count and a general gist of what people would be interested in threading out/playing with will help me make sure the log and mini-prompts are structured in a way that works! I would like to have the post up on April 25th at latest, so if you want to check in with your interest please do so soon!

Overall the efforts to rebuild are going to be a long running thing, mostly in the background outside of this log, so this log will be the “beginning” of the rebuild since some of it has already started. Monster appearances will be at a minimum, considering the state of Feiran Port leans more towards a suffocating “meh” feeling than anything else. A balanced, determined and stubborn approach is what’s going to work best here.

I have 4 major “groups” that otherworlders can fall into:
  • Physical Work & Architecture. This is going to be the big one. People who are strong, capable and built for physical labor are a great asset. Those with abilities that strengthen their abilities to lift and move heavy things around are also welcome! In a less physical capacity those with architectural knowledge are needed, or people with abilities geared towards being able to build without needing to be big, burly, and buff.
  • Agricultural & Landscaping Work. There’s going to be several areas that will need to be designated as farming plots for one, so people who have a green thumb are definitely welcome. In addition to this, more landscape-y sort of work will be needed to in order to make the city look nice. This can include more decorative work or more physical work such as leveling land and making it suitable to build on.
  • Health & Domestic Work. This is a more supportive sort of role characters can choose to take if they’re not physically able to help with a rebuild. The people working and spending their time here are going to need people good with healing/medical skills, as well as people who are able to cook and caretake in more minor capacities.
  • Security Work. This may be needed the least. There are actually very few actual monsters and creatures around outside of “shellbits” which are not necessarily alive, but they skitter about and generally make a nuisance of themselves. However, should there be a burst of unbridled calm, or other positive emotion like we get with rituals, it’s possible that it could attract something more dangerous though this will be incredibly rare and not really what the log is geared towards. However it’s a possibility if wanted.


*You do not HAVE to sign up to participate in the rebuild log, but signing up lets me know if there’s a big enough call for a log at all!*

In addition to the rebuild signups, I wanted to mention the Museum task that Reena and Red mentioned in the recent post. This is largely an excuse for Arehtei Reps to approach their Arehtei for information about interesting locations to go to, and for others to organize trips into different lands and get paid for it! With monetary motivation there might be more excuse for characters to request smaller adventures that could turn up some interesting things.

There’s a signup subthread below for all your textarea info dumping needs in regards to the rebuild. Likewise, If you have any questions about either subject, hit me (and reena) in the questions subthread!

Caprica here.

Sorry guys. I'd been trying and had intended to keep with Ariel here. It's just the state of my inbox having both her and Laphicet here now made me figure I should just stick to one character. So Ariel is going back home for now.

I'm still around with Laphi, so you aren't rid of me yet. If anyone had any questions or anything, just pm me or ask me on plurk and we can hash out anything I haven't tied up yet. Since I'll obviously need to defriend the comms with her account.

Hey guys, your head mod Laena here mostly back and writing these things up again. Lots of things to discuss both mod and game fronts, so please read everything. Or at least the thing under IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT. It's last so that all game stuff is handled first.
















And that's about it! If you have any questions, concerns, or want things clarified, just comment to this post.

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 Monday, April 24th and Applications (Canon | OC) open a week later on May 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!

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!

Hey guys-

Sending 76 on hiatus for a bit while I finish up a move. Hoping to be back before the end of May, but I'm putting that as my end just-in-case.
