— SELENIUM 2017 DETAILS —



For its third year, we're going to do something different for Selenium. Instead of it being in the city, Theasthai is hosting the festivities. While most of the traditions are the same, the also have their own flair to it. And for those who were expecting previous iterations, fear not! While different, we've managed to keep the essence of previous events while giving it an interesting twist.

— THEASTHAI DETAILS —



Huzzah, everyone has completed the fetch quest and have gathered enough emotion shards for everyone on the island to freely travel to Daimonia's city, Theasthai. This is the second portion of the event, and it's just one big party.

This will end on Tuesday, October 18th with the finale posted the following Wednesday. The IC:OOC time ratio is 1:1, so it's a 5 day long party. Because it's so long and since teleporters will be active, anyone can just stop by for the day and then return home with no issue.

And that should be everything. Mid-Month will go up closer toward the event finale with details as to how the future of Theastai will be handled as well as some other notices. If you have any questions, post them here.

— PIPHRON'S ISOLATION: EMOTION TRACKER —


This is the emotion tracker designated for the Piphron event. As we mentioned in the mod announcement, the emotions here will affect the outcome of the event.

For a good ending, not only must there be more positive emotions, but there must also be more trust then distrust. For a bad ending to occur, the opposite will be true. A neutral ending will be a mix, although there still needs to be more of a slant toward trust.

The event is set to run through Sunday, August 28, but we are going to set two deadlines for tallies. The first deadline is more like a "mid check" to ensure that we'll at least have a good amount before the end of the event and can start gauging how things are trending. The second deadline is the final one. Only those that submit prior to the deadline will be counted and considered for how the event will end.

First Deadline: Tuesday, August 23. Results will be posted the following day.
Second Deadline: Saturday, August 27.

When commenting, do not edit your comments to add in new ones. It's harder for us to track and properly update. Instead, reply to your original comment if you have any new additions to be made. This includes adding more emotion points toward an already posted thread.

— LIGHT OF HELISIUM: EMOTION TRACKER —


This is the emotion tracker designated for the Light of Helisium Event. Unlike previous events, there's no specific emotion that is being focused here, so this is really just to make organization on the official Emotion Tracker easier.

Use the following form to comment to this entry:



The emotion can either be threaded or handwaved. There is a field for you to indicate which it is. Any questions go here.

Due to the results of the poll placed yesterday, we will be extending the event to until Wednesday, April 20. Remember, that this is only the OOC date of things. Finale will go up on the 20th, but ICly it will have taken place on the 17th.

Let's hope things resolve between Dreamwidth and the various email providers to get email notifications back on track again! For those who aren't aware, the DW journal inbox has no delays, so use those if you haven't already!

Because of the delay, the Mid-Month Announcement won't go up until afterward so that we can cover everything in one place.

— TO EXTEND OR NOT TO EXTEND —



That is the question.

But first, while I have everyone's attention, results for Flower King and Queen have been posted! The thread can be found here.

With email notifications being delayed, but slowly resolving itself, we have been considering whether an extension to the event would help players or if it would be too long/unnecessary. So we're throwing a poll to ask you guys what you think! (You can read about the notification issue here.)

This is a flash poll, so we need everyone to vote in their opinion by mid-afternoon tomorrow!

Poll #17435 Event Extension
This poll is closed.
Open to: Registered Users, detailed results viewable to: Just the Poll Creator, participants: 48

Should we extend the event?

Yes
47 (97.9%)

No
1 (2.1%)

How many days? (Original end date: 4/18; check all preferences)

0 days (4/18)
2 (4.2%)

1 day (4/19)
18 (37.5%)

2 days (4/20)
35 (72.9%)




We know people will be backtagging regardless, but part of the reason for the extension is to give people more time to submit to the tracker and just let players not feel as stressed about threads.

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to reply to this post.

(If you briefly saw another post that looked almost exactly like this, I had left out the 0 days option on the poll so I went back to redo. Sorry for any confusion!)

— ZEPHYRAS FLOWER FESTIVAL 2016: EMOTION & FLOWER TRACKER —



This is the designated OOC post for players to comment to both for the emotion tracker as well as to keep up with their flowers. As a reminder, special flowers are given out to everyone who attends the festival. As they experience emotions, the flowers will bloom. If it's mostly positive, they will become more colorful. If it's mostly negative, they will become black.

There are two separate subthreads. One is strictly for emotions and the other is for players to comment to indicate if a flower bloomed or not. As a reminder, characters can have more than one flower completed, but no more than two. On average, most will only be able to fill one flower, so please be reasonable. Note on apathy: rather than make the flower bloom, it will actually cause the flower to slowly deteriorate until it just becomes a husk. For our purposes, such flowers do count.

If 50 flowers are completed, then there will be a special bonus ending. It's somewhat plot related, but if we get more than 50, then it'll have more significance.

When commenting under the emotion tracker subthread, please comment with each character separately. This is to make it easier for us to update. In addition, do not edit your comment to update points. If you get new threads or need more points tacked on, reply to your original comment. This is to ensure that the tracker is updated correctly. If you edit, we might miss it.

You have until the end of Sunday, April 17 Tuesday, April 19 to get the flower counts in. Any late submissions will still go on the tracker, but won't affect the outcome.

All questions should go here.

— FLOWER KING AND QUEEN 2016: NOMINATIONS & VOTING —



All right guys! As we mentioned in the announcement, we're going ahead and getting the nominations started a day early so people can get that up and out of the way without having to worry about it during actual thread. Details about all of this can be found here.

As of April 12, this post is ONLY for nominations! Voting does not start until tomorrow, April 13. We know people would want to go ahead and do that, too, but this heads up is to try and fill up the roster so when people do their voting, they get most of it done in one shot.

VOTING IS CLOSED! Results are here

You can nominate anyone until Thursday, April 14, 11:59PM CST and voting ends Friday, April 15, 11:59PM CST. We'll give out one last reminder for votes so that everyone has a fair shot. The process for both is very simple.

— ZEPHYRAS FLOWER FESTIVAL 2016: DETAILS —



Just like last year, due to how big this event is in terms of activities and things to do, we're posting the details a few days early to allow everyone to go ahead and plot ahead. There is also a separate plotting post that doubles as a CR Meme. The meme was originally set to be for next month, and the HMD for this month, but the are getting swapped for this purpose.

Because we are repeating a number of the "traditional" activities, most of these will seem familiar. However, there are a few new special ones, so please read it all and enjoy!

Hey, everyone! The past few days San and I have been discussing a CNY festival for Emp with Laena and we've been given the green light! Since it begins February 8th this year, just after applications close, Laena and the other mods are letting us integrate CNY with the IC intro mingle log. They said this could work two ways: 1) CNY will be one of the prompts or 2) All of the prompts will be surrounding the CNY festival. San and I have already come up with some good prompts, so we are leaning more towards #2 at the moment. This way the new characters aren't left out of the festivities and also so we don't step on anyone else's player plots, or any other in-game events. Another reason behind this event is that China thought that he could integrate CNY with helping to keep the positive emotions flowing into the pods, so the festival will be held near the Tree of Memories.

That being said, we need volunteers for several things, which are listed below. No prior CR to China is necessary, it's open to all characters. Plus I plan to make an IC post for China on crystalnet tomorrow for this, so they can get acquainted through that way too.

List and summary of positions )

I believe I've covered everything we have volunteer-wise so far! We will make a group plurk or group google hangout (whichever is easier for the majority) so that we can all can discuss further ideas. San has also volunteered to make a google doc for all the CNY info to help keep things more organized. Also, my plurk is [plurk.com profile] okami_no_tira

— NIGHT OF SELENIUM: EMOTION & MEMORY POD TRACKER —


This is the tracker designated for the Night of Selenium Event. For emotions, this is a pretty simple one. Just comment to appropriate subthread for documentation. If you need help determining what emotion fits, feel free to use this chart (work in progress, not absolute).

We are also doubling this post as Memory Pod tracker. For this event, all ghosts eventually ascend to the Tree of Memories and disappear into a pod. By default, the ghost will go to the pod of the character's alignment, BUT it can go to a different pod if the emotions attached to that ghost are far stronger or more comparable to that pod's alignment. So for example, a character may be aligned to Elios, so by default the ghost would count toward an Elios pod. But if the emotions are more envious, then the ghost could go to an Aiada pod instead.

You can only pick one. A ghost cannot split between pods. In terms of how many ghosts can be seen by a character, that is unlimited—however be reasonable. In addition, it is preferred that the ghost of a particular individual only occurs once. Although there could be many petals for one ghost, the actual ghost apparition should only occur one time.

In terms of points, we will be using the standard point system (1 point per ghost, 2 points if aligned). However, because this event can invoke stronger than usual emotions, we are allow ghosts to count up to 3 points. Please do not abuse this to try and arbitrarily "rack up pod points." Especially you aligned folk! The points are going to double for you!

ATTENTION!! Due to mod failure, the form neglected to indicate whether the ghosts would count as positive, negative, or apathetic. Please indicate the type by adding a +, -, or % next to the number of points. A note about apathetic ghosts—they will all go toward the "Unknown" pods, regardless of alignment.


Directions are given in the appropriate subthreads. If you have any questions, comment here.

Since I derped and didn't say, "Hey guys, use the Mod Post for plotting!" and not everyone uses Plurk or have everyone friended with each other, have an official plotting post for the upcoming event. For easy reference, the details can be found here.

(This can sort of double as an informal CR meme since the official one won't be until February. At the very least, take this chance to get some more CR or deepen the ones you have!)

— THRAS'S CHALLENGE: EMOTION & ABILITY TRACKER —


This is the tracker designated for the Thras's Challenge Event. For emotions, this is a pretty simple one. Just comment to appropriate subthread for documentation. If you need help determining what emotion fits, feel free to use this chart (work in progress, not absolute).

The only thing different is that we are doubling this post as an ability tracker. The subthread is to determine whether a character actually stuck to it or defaulted back on their skills. You can wait until after the event is over or the moment the character defaults.

Directions are given in the appropriate subthreads. If you have any questions, comment here.
