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!


• Prompt A: How about giving the emotions a try?

• Prompt B: Refer to the Task Board and choose a task your character may be interested in taking up. For this prompt, you could have your character ask for help, already be in the middle of the job, or react to it in some way. Perhaps they were an unfortunate victim or want to create a job countering an existing one. You could even have a prompt making a job request. Creating jobs for the purpose of the test drive is absolutely doable.

• Prompt C: How about giving the amulets a go? Start a telepathic conversation and see how it works. Remember, the amulets are sending out the owner's thoughts so might want to be careful about how the stream of consciousness goes...

• Prompt D: The Flower Festival is soon, and that means that a lot of caterers, cooks, restaurants and anyone involved with cooking are gearing up to participate in the celebration. This means that there’s plenty of places that are offering food at enormous discounts, or running food related events outside of their stores. One particular setup is in the center of the market area, where tables upon tables of food have been set up as a sort of buffet: pick what you want and pay as you leave! Unfortunately, someone mischievous has created a real problem. The buffet has turned into an all out food fight and it doesn't look like it’s stopping anytime soon...
  1. Join In. If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. Might as well join the fun since it’s happening anyway, and you’ve probably already found yourself victim to an errant pizza slice or something already. Grab a handful of whatever is nearest you or pick up a spoon and get that food flying!

  2. Pay up. The fun can only last so long, and none of the vendors are happy. While the food fight has been broken up, the place is still a mess. Participants and people caught up in the crossfire are all being blamed equally. Grab a mop and a dustpan and get cleaning. Or, try and argue your way out of being taken to the local enforcers station and given a hefty fine.

• Prompt E: It’s already spring, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t people who are still interested in a few last minute winter escapades. Luckily, with cores and emotion fueled dunamis, things like this aren’t exactly off the table yet. A small portion of Lake Niras has been turned into a winter wonderland, down to a thick layer of ice that’s almost strong enough to be skated upon. However, this isn’t what it’s being used for. The local Polar Bear club has decided to hold a springtime version of their usual event and currently has open registration for those who think they’ve got the willpower to take the plunge in the icy water.
  1. Dive Deep.Strip down to your skivvies or don a bathing suit and jump in! The challenge is to stay in the longest of 4 or 2, or to just beat your personal best. In lieu of joining up yourself if you don’t feel like freezing your tush off you’re more than welcome to lead the cheerleading team!!! ... Who are all dressed as different interpretations of Sosyne...

  2. Maintain The Cold. Those who aren't the participating kind might find themselves attracted to the more “Stage hand” like portion of the club event. Those who have practiced dunamis, the art of using your emotions to create all sorts of manifestations under control, might be able to help maintain the frigid temperature in the air that’s causing the snowfall. Or, if you’re just a really negative person you could be unintentionally making it worse. Otherwise, there’s always a need for a few extra hands at rotating the frozen water cores which are helping keep the water particularly icy. Just be careful and try not to get too excited or you’ll melt the cores!

• Prompt F: Ghost tours have become all the rage in Verens, and tonight you find yourself coming along, either willingly or by having one of the organizers pester you into it. But being a guest isn’t the only way to participate—they’re taking volunteers to “assist” as well, to help spice things up and improve the mood. Harness your emotions to make the atmosphere more sinister, or just hide in some bushes or around some corners to surprise someone with an old-fashioned “boo!”
  1. Sewers Dark and dank, the tunnels underneath the city are already a good place to scare or be scared. The tour takes characters through a lesser-used portion of the sewers, meaning it’s slightly less smelly, but there’s still plenty of opportunity for spooky stories. Don’t get caught by the mossgator or the restless spirits of its victims...

  2. Inside the Memory Tree The giant tree that stands in the city’s square hasn’t always been a safe place, especially the dungeon-like spaces inside. The twisting wood and vines have been home to all sorts of monsters that have been a threat in the past, from moving plants with sticky vines to shadow creatures with sharp teeth—or so the tour guides will say. The tree may not have been around long enough to have much history to it, but that doesn’t stop them from playing it up.

  3. Abandoned Buildings
  4. Always a necessity for any ghost tour, this leg of the trip will take characters past and through a few rundown places, including an old warehouse, a creaky mansion, and a set of dirty apartments. Don’t forget all the dark alleyways in between, or the stories of long-past serial killers who choked their victims to death right over there…

• Prompt G: Make your own! It could include maraschino cherries and/or knives.

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!

Elize Lutus | Tales of Xillia II

[personal profile] pinkidealist 2017-03-18 02:40 am (UTC)(link)
[ Get me out of here; Prompt D-1 ]
{It wasn't long until Elize came back (once again), but once she found out the Flower Festival was around the corner, she couldn't help but get excited. She'd always been a fan of these festivals, but the Flower Festival was especially fun. She enjoyed all of the activities going on and all of the different kinds of food they could find there, which really helped when she was trying to get her bearings again. Having that familiar event go on again helped with evening out all the differences there were by now.

She was just enjoying some of the food that was set up when a plate of food came her way, hitting her back before falling to the floor. It happened so fast that she didn't know how to react.

Hey! That was rude! {That doesn't stop her from throwing food back though. Too bad the person she was aiming for ducked behind someone else as a shield. She instantly felt bad.}

Oh no! I'm so sorry! I didn't mean.... Are you okay? {Already looking for something to help clean up the mess she made. Unless, you know, they decided to retaliate.}

[ Grounded right after she got back; Prompt D-2 ]
{Well, as much as she shouldn't admit to, she actually had a lot of fun after getting past the fact that someone threw food at her and she was now caked with food. She definitely needed to clean up after this, but not before getting caught red handed with food in her hand.

She had just recently come back and he was -- no doubt -- going to be grounded already. Great. That's not exactly the best welcome home gift to receive. It was only a matter of time until Alvin and Presa found out about this. Still, even knowing this, she knew she'd better help clean up. For one, she wasn't going to get away and two, she didn't feel right about partaking and not taking responsibility for her actions; she was slowly getting more mature. So with all the excitement dying down, she was going around helping the others who got stuck cleaning with their duties.

I'm sorry to get you into this mess... {Even if it wasn't her fault directly.}

[ Somebody help this poor girl; Prompt F ]
{She may have been a bit older than when she first met the others, but she was just as naive in many ways. Case in point, being forced to join in these ghost tours did not help her well being. And they had to drag her to a creepy looking abandoned building to boot. This house seems to have seen better days and as much as she tried to talk her way out of this creepy old place, there she was standing in an old abandoned house, said to be haunted.

People could tell her that ghosts weren't real, but what was that eerie feeling that someone -- besides those with her -- was watching her? Okay, okay... As long as the others were still with her, she would be okay.

Wait... Why was she all alone? Did she get left behind?

H-Hello!? Is anyone there?!

{Her emotions didn't help when they just made the eerie sounds and sights that much more exaggerated. Aside from the normal sounds, she'd occasionally hear the creaking of the wooden floors as if someone was walking around. It could be the others.... or it might be something else, but she decided her best bet was to follow the sound in hopes that it was some of the people she'd come in with.

Wielding her staff, just in case, she inched down the house hallways hesitantly. That's when she heard the creaking get louder.

I-Is somebody there? Please come out!

{But there was no answer, just louder creaking until she started smacking whatever was coming her way. She'll apologize once she realize it was just another person roaming around. Please forgive her for wildly swinging her staff around.}

Oswald Baskerville | Pandora Hearts

[personal profile] redstainedking 2017-03-18 02:56 am (UTC)(link)

[Soft spoken, a few shadows gathering at Oswald's feet as he watched them for a moment, gaze tracing the outline of large wings fidgeting underfoot. Head tilted to one side, curious as a few black feathers popped into existence. Fondness was there, causing a few of those black feathers to tint red near the tips.

Yet what he had spoken to was another winged creature, perched on his shoulder, trying the snatch a bit of popcorn from between his fingers. A box of it in his other hand]

This isn't for you. [A displeased croak from the raven, beak clicking, even as it tried again. Still, there was a faint smile at the bird that decided he'd be a proper perch, temporary companion that it might have been.]

[There was a slowly building pile of maraschino cherries being placed on a plate, picked from some sort of monstrous dessert that had been placed on the café table in front of Oswald. Carefully plucked as he was trying not to make something of a face.

Reminded him too much of something else, he'd even tried one and. No. No. Not going to eat those, they could go there and... well.]

... What am I going to do with these...?

[Okay, so maybe Anise had joined the ghost tours because they seemed like a good way to make money, and she wanted to get ideas.]

[And maybe part of the fun for her was trolling people and seeing their reactions.]

[But did that mean that she would take advantage of somebody else being left behind? Somebody who was clearly alone and terrified?]

[You bet it did.]


[Elize will find that she's no longer alone, because there's a giant animated stuffed bear (?) in the corridor with her. In daylight, the thing would probably still be terrifying, with the uneven stitches, mismatched fabric, and demon button eyes. In a haunted house? This is the stuff of pure nightmares.]

[Anise is there too, of course, but she's taking advantage of the darkness to hide behind Tokunaga, and provide fitting narration.]

I'm the ghost of stuffed animals past! I stalk the corridors of this haunted house, and eat children who become separated from the tour groups.

Er... do you not like cherries?

[ 'Don't be a picky eater' -- he remembered being told that when he was younger. These days, Mikumo was the kind of obnoxiously straitlaced person who'd clean his plate even if it contained something he didn't like. But maybe this fellow wasn't a fan of sugary fruit? ]

Usually, people think they're the best part...
pinkidealist: (pic#10182092)

[personal profile] pinkidealist 2017-03-18 03:21 am (UTC)(link)
{Wasn't it her lucky day? Not.

Seeing the giant animated stuffed bear (?) shouldn't have scared her, considering she had a floating doll basically, but she wasn't quite in the right mind. So she immediately stumbled backwards, trying to find her footing again. In the meantime, she was trying to crawl backwards until she hit a wall.

N-No! I-I'm not separated! I'm-- {And then a clicked.} Wait.... That's... awfully specific...

{Frightened yes, but once she thought back to how bizarre that narration was.... and how specific... Have a floating talking doll hover around Tokunaga.}

Are you really a ghost...?
redstainedking: (Shhhh. He's sleeping)

[personal profile] redstainedking 2017-03-18 03:25 am (UTC)(link)
Normal cherries.

[These? These were both two sweet and he found the way they simply... burst when bitten into was unpleasant.

Oswald liked cherries, he did. They didn't have that same sort of effect when eaten, they weren't overly sweet. Some even had a slight bitter sort of note to them. These? These were some sort of monstrosity.]

Velvet Crowe | Tales of Berseria

[personal profile] lordofcalamity 2017-03-18 03:28 am (UTC)(link)
C - Communication is key

[With the knowledge that these things allow people to communicate with others and that she doesn't have to show her face, Velvet is merely projecting her thoughts to the network.]

I'm looking for information on the city of Shaarnath. Anything you can tell me about it from the monsters outside the walls to what life is like down there, how our emotions have an effect on the world in comparison to being in this place. What, exactly, would it be like for someone to live down there instead of in Verens?

[That's it. That's the message.]

D2 - If you want it done right, do it yourself

[The minute food had started flying, Velvet immediately moved so that she wouldn't end up splattered with it. Trying to get food out of her hair was an absolute nightmare. However, she hadn't gotten away fast enough and now there was a broom shoved into her hands. An eyebrow rose at the vendor and it was exactly the sort of thing that she would typically avoid if not for...]

You, get out of the way. I'll do it myself. [Velvet is now pointing her broom at someone attempting to clean up this particular mess. From her particular spot she could easily see how they were missing a spot and is moving in to make sure it gets done properly.] If you miss a spot, you'll attract all sorts of animals. Eventually the food will rot and start to smell. You have to clean it right the first time or you'll regret it later.

F3 - It's all an act, right?

[Honestly, there wasn't much here that would frighten this particular woman so she doesn't bother trying to "brave" her way through it and instead ends up as a volunteer to do the scaring. Something she could do easily enough. While she avoids the smellier option of being in the sewer, Velvet does move through the abandoned buildings - the alleyways. There's a chill in the air and there's something drifting through the air that one may mistake for snow but is more along the lines of ash without the mess.

She can't be seen as of yet but there comes the sound of something scraping along a wall. One will clearly be able see where a large set of claw marks have been dug deeply into the various structures and in the streets. A freezing wind sweeps through the alley and urge the participates onward until they reach a crossroad. Out in front of them steps Velvet. She's positioned so that she's blocking the way forward along with the left path which leaves only one road to continue onward.]

This part of the city belongs to the Lord of Calamity. Those who dare trespass are forfeiting their lives. [The cold wind picks up and her hair along with her coat flutter but she doesn't doesn't look effected even though she's not wearing much. Velvet raises her left hand to reveal the entire arm is bandaged, more ash-like sweeps in and block her from view for a mere moment. Looking back that left arm has transformed and now appears huge - red and black with sharp claws. The arm is raised and clenched into a fist, her gold eyes narrow as she glares at the participates over it.]

Have you come to be consumed?

[Now that arm is extended, not touching, but deadly claws are pointed towards the participant.]


[OOC: Wildcard me!]
captainfoureyes: (oh?)

[personal profile] captainfoureyes 2017-03-18 03:30 am (UTC)(link)
Oh, I see.

[ Well, it wasn't as though they could be recycled; that'd violate food safety regulations, surely. If this place... had food safety regulations?

...Oh god.]

Do you have a little sister or someone who likes sweets? Maybe you could bring them home.

[personal profile] lastfonmasterguardian 2017-03-18 03:32 am (UTC)(link)
[It was absolutely her lucky day! Anise usually charged for her performances with Tokunaga.]

[And what a performance she's making it. She has Tokunaga wiggle his arms in a way that could only be terrifying in a dimly lot haunted house, before adding more of her "narration." Forget that the narration is clearly a thirteen year old girl, it's terrifying! ...probably.]

Of course I'm really a ghost! I'm the souls of all the toys left behind in this mansion, given form. I only appear when...

[It's at this point Anise realizes she has company, and while a floating stuffed animal shouldn't scare her (considering Tokunaga), she's putting her all into the act, and is caught off-guard.]

Whoa! Don't tell me this place is really haunted!
sunflowering: (This way)

[She's shocked. The absolute best part of a sweet dessert was the cherry on top. But then, as far as vampires went, she had the sweetest tooth of all. Blinking, she can't help but notice him from a table close by, and his somewhat unhappy question.]

Eh...? That's always my favorite part. You're supposed to save it for last to savor it. You don't like them?
redstainedking: (Seriously Jack?)

[personal profile] redstainedking 2017-03-18 03:36 am (UTC)(link)
[There was a momentary pause, a cherry held with a spoon just above the little pile o the plate.]

She isn't here, and neither is my niece. Though the both of them often preferred meat to sweets.

[Then the cherry was dropped right on top of the pile. Looked like the last one at least. Why did something need so many cherries on it? Let alone ones that tasted like they'd been soaked in some sort of sugary liquid. Oswald liked sweets, he did.

Those things were just. No.]

You can have them if you want.

[He is using a spoon to get them off after all. One that hasn't yet been used for any sort of eating of anything.]

I like normal cherries, these remind me of something else.

{Okay, she was almost buying that despite starting to know better until that comment. Okay, obviously this was just some sort of prank. The kind that Alvin would do to her. So she's going to get up...}

So it is a prank then!

[Velvet is in full cleaning mode when someone nearby speaks up, apologizing about all of this. She stops sweeping and looks over at the individual and isn't too surprised to see a young girl. Either the girl had accidentally gotten caught when food was being flung around or she had been one of the people responsible. Fortunately, Velvet has something of a soft spot for kids and sighs.

It's not exactly her job to lecture someone else's kid but no one would say that Velvet was the warmest person when it came to dealing with others.]

This is a waste of food but nothing to do about it except to clean it up. So long as you learn from this that food is for eating and not throwing, I suppose I can forgive you.

Francel de Haillenarte | Final Fantasy XIV

[personal profile] haillenarte 2017-03-18 03:43 am (UTC)(link)
prompt b, st0308.
[it's not really the strangest thing he's ever considered doing for money — or at all really — but one way or another, francel is now crossdressing to infiltrate a tea party. perhaps you're going in with him, or maybe you've just been helping him get ready! either way, he steps out of a changing room wearing a skirt, a wig, and some heels... and he's... really... kind of distressingly convincing.

he clears his throat with a kind of deep coughing sound, and then speaks in a slightly breathier voice than usual:]

Well? Do you suppose I might fool a woman?

prompt d.
[it strikes francel as a dreadful waste of victuals, but who is he to stop an entire town from having a food fight? he sees where things are headed after the first thrown pie, and — with as much ishgardian dignity as he can muster — very smoothly grabs a plate of dessert and slips beneath the nearest table, planning to simply eat until everything is over.

as it turns out, you are beneath the same table; he brushes against you as he crawls underneath, and he murmurs something that might be i'm sorry, sliding back in an attempt to give you as much space as possible. once settled, francel smiles apologetically and half-raises his plate of cake in a mock-"toast."]

My apologies — is there room for me here? My frame is ill-suited to hiding beneath tables, I know...

[he's 6'7" despite his baby face, so in all likelihood, it is a little cramped.]

backstory: Do not take (You think I'm pretty?)

[personal profile] backstory 2017-03-18 03:47 am (UTC)(link)
I would not waste food so carelessly-! [The silvery white haired man argues vehemently with one of the vendors. But when a broom is shoved within his hands, and the authorities threatened, he growls in frustration, before deciding to help aid in the effort of clean up.

He brushes off a bit of the vegetables that had struck his robe earlier, before aggressively sweeping the floor. His dragon's claw helps aid in the speed, but that's when he- accidentally splinters the top of the broom.

... Oops?

When he glances up, his eyes lift to find a woman angrily pointing a broom at him. To begin, he thought it might have had to do with the now broken equipment, but instead it seems... he missed a spot.]

Ah- [He blinks, and steps aside as directed, while she moves forward.] I apologize. I hadn't realized.

You give them to me. Obviously.

[Kevin, ever so casually, slides his plate beneath Oswald's fork. Seriously, bro, why are you even bothering to put them on a different plate? Put them on his.

You know. Now that Kevin is here which he may or may not have been a few seconds ago. Probably he wasn't, because his piece of chocolate cake does not have any bites out of it yet.]

[At first, he tries to ignore the eerie sound of the claws, the over the top nature of this place he'd wanted to explore as he has with most everywhere else he's been able to get around to so far.]


[But well. He probably was a little loud, not thinking to consider who might hear or see him since not everyone can, around here. Let alone the questionable wisdom of attempting to take shortcuts in said alleys to get around the city. Or this haunted house thing.

He only knows one person who uses that title though. And knows that voice, that faint shadow through the wind and ash cloud as intimately as he knows his own. Hence his reaction being more something akin to sheepish relief than actual fear. Because in spite of her threats, she's never actually laid a hand on him. Not purposely, anyway, the one time he woke her from a nightmare aside.

Laughter probably. Wasn't what she was aiming for though......]

It's not a prank!

[It totally is a prank. You can tell she's totally not lying by how the air is starting to heat up.]

It's...a part-time job!

[You know, the kind where she doesn't get paid, and also the people running this whole thing don't know she's there.]

[The girl already looks plenty upset about the whole thing and she might even be scolded about it by her guardian or whoever was currently looking after her. In all honesty, the only real part Velvet doesn't like about all of this is how the food was wasted because it certainly seems like the vendors are making those responsible clean up.]

Then it's fine. Try to remember how you feel now should you ever find yourself in a similar situation.

[Velvet reachs over to grab a clean rag and holds it out for Elize to take.]

You should clean yourself up a bit before you go home.

[At least the person he's sharing space with doesn't take up much room at all. But projectile foods are dreadfully dangerous for a pixie who could get taken out by a flying dinner roll.

But oh my! Whoever this is strikes Tinkerbell as very fascinating. She's seen people before, even tall people, but never anyone with ears quite that shape. It's taking every ounce of self-control she possesses not to reach out and touch them to satisfy her curiosity.

She flits back and forth, trying to take in everything she can, leaving a thin stream of pixie dust to flitter down in her wake.]

There's plenty of room here! I'm just staying where it's safe.

[Wasn't she not supposed to talk to people? Well too bad. Doing it.]
