— ACTIVITY CHECK: MARCH 1 - 31 —


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 March 1 through March 31. The deadline is Friday, March 31, 11:59PM CST.

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.

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.

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] ledbythewind
[personal profile] lifetooshort
[personal profile] praelucente
[personal profile] weaponsgrade

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:

I've been thinking a lot about it, and it's not that easy to get Cadence rolling, so I'll be dropping her.

This will mean that, hopefully, I'll be able to better focus on Ben Tennyson, so be prepared for that. :)

— TEST DRIVE: APRIL—


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 Saturday, March 25 and Applications (Canon | OC) open a week later on April 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!

Okay so uh... between this whole last week being a complete mess and RL just continually adding things on, i've become pretty nonexistent with tags and before that wasn't much better so I decided i'm just gonna go on hiatus for the next month here and will be gone from now til about the 4th of next month.

It's just so I can recharge and sort out my life with everything all going on at once without having the added stress of worrying about tags and other such matters. This doesn't mean I won't try to get to all of my current tags sitting in my inbox but please bear with me and I promise i'll backtag as much as y'all will let me.

This affects both Kairi ([personal profile] notgoingtowait) and Mikaela ([personal profile] sanguisdolore) and apologies to anyone who's been waiting on tags from me. I'm hoping after this hiatus i'll have everything sorted out and be a much faster tagger ♥

— PLAYER INTRODUCTIONS: MARCH —


Hey everyone! We request that everyone who has just joined the game to comment to this entry for your introduction. This is to prevent the community from getting over spammed and reduce clutter.

Feel free to format your introduction however way you want. Just be sure include your name, character(s), and any preferred method of contact.

So say hello and meet some new faces!

HELLO, EVERYONE! This is Ryuu, your resident Shepherd, coming by for two things!

So, last month, Sorey made a call out post on the network to see if anyone would be willing to make him a goblin cart (apologies to everyone that I haven't gotten around to tagging yet). Given the overwhelming amount of people who'd been willing to help him out, and some OOC joking around, an idea for Goblin Go Kart Racing kind of hatched.

This is just to gauge some interest from the players who might want their characters to participate! It may take about two months so that ICly everyone has enough time to put together their kart. As for prizes, that's open for suggestion as Sorey honestly wouldn't know...what to give out. Other than books. Picking the winners will be up to RNG, as it feels more fair to do it that way.

The other thing is that Rose will most likely be setting up a betting pool behind Sorey's back. This is likely gonna be handwaved, but people wanting to gamble can certainly do so!

Anyway, yeah, so! If there's enough interest, then later I'll put up an actual sign-up post and a potential date for everyone to vote on. :D As always, feel free to ask questions here! I'm easily reachable through PMing this account or via Plurk at [plurk.com profile] redknightdistrict!

Alright! March is upon us and it's time to get most of this plot on the road...!

Most plot-related things can be found in this spreadsheet. A link to the investigation log can be found here, and a link to the trial log can be found over here.

This OOC post is mostly to answer any questions that have not been covered in the course of plotting this out. Feel free to use this as needed, in any case!

Hello all -

For those of you I have on plurk, you already know but my aunt has been super sick and was hospitalized about a week and a half ago due to complications from her treatment. Between this and starting a new job in a week, I need to focus on myself and make sure I stay sane through March. I will be backtagging what I've got in my inbox, if there's anything you don't want to continue please feel free to drop it. Luna will be on auto-pilot with godmod permissions going out to castmates if she's needed somewhere.

Thanks everybody for your understanding!

Icons and written text don't always give a clear impression of a character. That's what this meme is for! Describe what your character is like in person. What is their body type? Do they have any distinctive markings? Do they have an accent or unique kind of voice? Any interesting type of body language? This is especially great for any things that have changed since their arrival! And you can link your comment in your Emp profile later, too.

Basically, share anything that you feel other characters would notice about yours if they ran into them in the street.

Order of operations:
i. Fill out this textarea



ii. Comment to this post! Also, feel free to fiddle with the colour of the comments subject headings. Colour code your character!
iii. Read the comments of others.
iv. Get clarifications! Talk about how this affects your cr! Compare cool scars and recommend tailors to one another!
