The Week in Review


With more and more 'outsiders' disappearing in mass, it has, if nothing else gave many characters a sense of urgency. Obviously a certain someone had ideas about making a hole to the next floor, but his idea was thwarted, however Krichevskoy and many others are now on the floor attempting to track down the door.

What lies beyond the door? Another floor? Or...? And why have so many vanished? Are they really going home or is the world beyond the castle as empty as it appears to be?

WHAT'S IN STORE FOR OUR HEROES AND VILLAINS ALIKE? STAY TUNED!

Anything else happen this past, very long week, you'd like to add? Put a comment in the post below!

New Characters


We were blessed with one last new character since last week change: One vampire by the name of Valvatorez.

Announcements


Obviously the mod team has been a bit crippled the past month or two, with me unwell, Rue facing many life difficulties and ultimately stepping down and Heather drowning in school (and now what appears to be a crashed HD, ack) it's made getting things moving difficult. I'm finally starting to recover, so I'm going to do my best to keep forward momentum going.

Thank you to everyone for your continued patience, support and for simply just sticking around! I know most of us want to see things through to the end, I know I do, so let's give this our all! *fist pump*

I'd like to encourage everyone to go check out that log with Krichevskoy and co. to be part of the last door opening. NGL, you're all pretty much on the precipice of... a lot of things, SO GO FORTH.

Feel free to use the week change post to discuss any planning or anything! Communication is really key right now, so go nuts!

Hey guys, if you follow track, you'll know there's theoretically a week change today. Activity has been internalized in previous logs right now, so it's hard to tell how everyone is. If we change the week, it won't be much more than pushing characters ahead in time. Are folks ready for that? We know it's been quiet, and we're sorry for that. The three of us have been pretty busy.

Keep in mind that we plan for the coming AC to be a roll-call (UNLESS characters require double-activity, so something needs to be shown in that case).

What do you guys think? Just to clarify: We're basically wondering if we should postpone the Week Change again.

Week 45

The Week in Review, by you!


What have your characters been doing the past week? Write a comment and let the game know where your characters are at/doing!

New Characters


Galaxia ([personal profile] inflation) is our newest character!

Announcements


Laharl has made a post on the message board, "inviting" people to be able to stay in his castle in the Netherworld. Might beat staying in a tent, eh?

Meanwhile, obviously things continue to be on the slow side right now. Lot of hiatuses still lingering--hang in there guys and DO keep tagging! Hard for things to move if no one tags. ;)

Also, don't forget to comment on the hiatus post to let us know when you're back! Or too extend a hiatus. Keeping us mods informed there is muchly appreciated!

And that's it for this week change!

The Week in Review!


The past week has been largely spent recovering from the shock of Paixao's destruction and picking through the rubble remains. Two camps have formed, one camp of the outsiders, near St. Destino for those who have not yet decided on another floor to migrate to and another closer to Niflheim gate where many of the Paixao residents are currently residing. Outsiders have become unwelcome in their midst, and the Mayor himself spoke up at the start of the new week with an open post to the message board on the journals.

New Characters


Jenny [personal profile] lovestherunning returns once more, and an old time player returned with a new character, Chrono [personal profile] magicissrsbznz. Be sure to friend add! (And unban Jenny)

Announcements


If you haven't seen yet, the good Mayor has made a post on the messageboard.

We still have a lot of hiatus' going at the moment, but remember, if you come off hiatus be sure to also note your back on the hiatus post? We appreciate it. :)

As we are obviously beginning to push towards endgame, now is probably the time to say: Is there anything you want to do with your character before the end? Any plot you'd love to happen? Some kind of event you'd like to possibly see? (If we can work in a reason for it anyways XD)

Let us mods know if there is! We are more than happy to see what we can do to make your RP desire granted. :)

 Week Change - Week 43


The Week in Review, By You!

Outside of explodey roof chaos, what have your characters been up to? Leave a comment here to let us know!



New Characters
 

Since the last week change, we have welcomed Natalia Luzu Kimlasca-Lanvaldear ([personal profile] forkimlasca) and welcomed back Rinoa Heartilly ([personal profile] timberwings)! Please make sure to make use of our friend add/remove list if you haven't already!


Announcements

In the wake of all the destruction and chaos the town has faced, Mayor Praetoris and the townspeople have decided enough is enough. While before your character may have gotten a polite snub or a cold shoulder, the townspeople are now actively hostile and essentially blame you for every death that has occurred. It's not just the higher-class businesses refusing your business -- it's all shops. Apartments and hotels will forcibly remove you or die trying. Your kind just isn't welcome here anymore.

Outside the gates, the townsfolk have put up tents and shelters while they slowly try to rebuild and heal. Unfortunately, it's slow-going and painful and the resentment is even more intense there. Your character may want to help, but don't expect them to be grateful.

Now what will you do?


Our next week change will be September 23rd!

What have your characters been up to lately? Did they sit on their rump all week or accomplish anything interesting? Anything interesting plots afoot? Comment to this post and let us all know!


Announcements


Today is the last day for the Activity Check, so please check in if you haven't already. I will be announcing the results tomorrow when I wake up, and will include a quick friends add/delete in the announcement for easy list updating.

Now for the more IC stuff!

If you signed up for this player plot, please be sure to check your inboxes. A few people have already acted on the information they were given, but we want to make sure that the people who signed up for that player plot get to participate if they want!

Also, please remember that there is a whole wide world to discover on the latest floor. We encourage everyone to take a look!


The next week change will be August 19th!

Week Change - Week 41


We held off week change due to lots school and other busy-ness that seemed to hit almost everyone, but now that most of that is over for everyone, here's the week change, finally!

The Week in Review, By You!


What have your characters been up to lately? Did they sit on their rump all week or accomplish anything interesting? Anything interesting plots afoot? Comment to this post and let us all know!

New Characters


Since the last week change, we've welcomed: Little Red Riding Hood ([personal profile] redrepels), Yuuri ([personal profile] evil_ditto), the pirate with a scarf ([personal profile] number2) Alice Liddell ([personal profile] madcuriosity), Lina Inverse ([personal profile] dragu_slave) and Xigbar ([personal profile] graviga)!

Announcements


If you haven't looked at the new rules page and the updated AC requirements, be sure to look at the OOC and read up on them!

As for IC related things...

Through this week anyone around the Vanaheim and Muspelheim area might just notice some mysterious damage to streets and buildings in random areas, progressively becoming more common as the week progresses. In places where this destruction has happened one might notice a strange slimey substance. Touch with caution! This slime will disolve clothing and cause short term numbing to any exposed skin it comes in contact with.

Who or what caused this destruction and left behind the slime? You might be better off not knowing!

The next week change will be July 15th!

Week Change - Week 39

The Week in Review, By You!

Having folks tell us what they did last time worked rather well, so we're gonna do that again. :D (Since it's nigh impossible for your mods to keep up with what's going on in every thread.) What did your characters do last week? Anything of note?

New Characters

Welcome [personal profile] oneeyedeagle, [personal profile] flashstepirony, [personal profile] kingdomkeyd, [personal profile] thefutureboy, [personal profile] unyeildingcourage, [personal profile] jellyfishbrain, [personal profile] clumsyjesus, [personal profile] powercorrupts, [personal profile] sevenyearssavior, [personal profile] klutziness and [profile] teratological!

Announcements


So, we're looking for volunteers of characters who might think of going to the Netherworld and finding the door to the next floor! We will randomly pick from any of those who volunteer, so leave a comment here saying if you're interested!

And that's it for now! Hopefully we'll have some floor announcements in the near future. :3

Week 38


The Week in Review


Hey guys, a little different this week, because our brains are all over the place. Comment to this post and tell us what's been going on for your characters during this past week!


New Characters


Roy Mustang, Seifer, Flandre Scarlet, Judge Nemo, Professor Ratigan, Roderich Edelstein, Sky Smith, and Rarity!


Weather


Thank god. The snow is dealt with. It's stopped, and the majority is cleared.


Announcements


Oi. It's been a loooong week 37. Sorry about that, guys. The move's taken a lot out of many of us, mods included. Hopefully people are settling in, and at least from our end I think we've managed to find our norm.

We're in the process of redoing the rules and the FAQ, the latter of which you can see here! We're still tweaking it, so if you've got any suggestions you can tell us directly on our Google Docs version of it! Simply highlight a portion of text, right click, and comment! Please don't abuse this. (If you see any text that isn't purple, it's just the mods making notes or being insane like Hayley). The rules are still being butchered and reworded but those should be up in a few days soon, too.

The snow has been decently cleared; there are gigantic piles of it outside of the gates from the citizens (and anyone else) that help cleared it away.

As for nightmares, please hop over to this post if you haven't and tell us alllll about your nightmares!

As a reminder, characters can still easily get out of the city! The guards will try to stop you, but it is possible to get around them/trick them/what have you. Don't let it stop you from trying to explore! It's if you want to be caught.... well... :3

The normal AC will be in a few days, so keep an eye out for that!

Week Change - Week 37

The Week in Review
How do you deal with nightmares? Some of Paixao's denizens bonded over the darkness in their dreams while others found conflict and battle. One thing is certain, though...it's no coincidence everyone's suffering from nightmares at the same time! But as some are spurred into action, not only against bad dreams but the weather itself, maybe a silver lining can be found? Of course, it's hard to see on the bright side when you're being arrested by guards simply by trying to leave the frozen wasteland the city has become. That mayor sure is a jerk, eh?

New Characters

Please welcome [livejournal.com profile] twice_promised, [livejournal.com profile] rhapsodicblues, [livejournal.com profile] likeablueberry, [livejournal.com profile] gumdroppizza, [livejournal.com profile] chosencasanova and returning character [livejournal.com profile] melodyofwater! Remember to add them to your friends list if you have not already. And don't forget to unban our returning journals, too!

Plot
Finally, FINALLY, the snow seems to be letting up. Though the wintery scene hasn't quite disappeared, the frightening blizzards and persistent snowfall has stopped. The Mayor has somehow followed through on his assurance that the weather would be "dealt with," but a more pressing problem is just starting -- people are being arrested for trying to leave!

What else could go wrong? Don't answer that.



Next Week Change is January 1st!

Week Change - Week 36


The Week in Review



Two kidnappings in one week? Must be something in the water. While the Eleventh Doctor was taken and tortured by Kuja and his villainous metal thong, Yorda seems to have been stolen from her geeky science nerd companion. But who is the culprit? Is it a chocobo after all? And she was just having so much fun at a sleepover... Meanwhile, the message board is fired up from some disturbing and antagonistic posts - a body found on the streets of Paixao!? Scar being a jerk and nobody likes him?

More friends were lost and missing, new friends were made and families have been tested. But most importantly -- what is the deal with all this snow?



New Characters


Please welcome [livejournal.com profile] bestwhendaft, [livejournal.com profile] whyisthatsosad, [livejournal.com profile] fonflower, [livejournal.com profile] sparkwithinme, [livejournal.com profile] trademark_skull and [livejournal.com profile] cheerfulrainbow! Remember to add them to your friends list if you have not already. The lists will be updated after the AC results are done.


Plot


The snow that had started to fall over Paixao hasn't stopped. It hasn't even lightened up. It keeps falling within the domes and it's gotten to the point where it's unmanageable. The trains have been shut down, unable to run.

In other news, the mayor has made his presence known once more.


Announcements


As of this post, Mayor Douchetoris (as I've come to nickname him) has made his presence known in the city again. He's gone back to the old, old ways of not letting people leave the gates and no, he's not about to change his mind in that regards. You can, however, still get out of the city, probably with violence if you want to just waltz through the exit, or you can find other ways like stealth methods or finding someone that can use portals, turn into a mouse and skitter by. Creativity! Go for it.

But for those of you that are terrible to your muses, there's another option. Those who try to exit can be arrested by some pretty tough citizens and brought into "prison" to serve time for a short while. ...At least, that's what characters think will happen.

What really happens? Your characters are handed over to the Organization, surprise surprise. You can sign up here (the "plot signups" link can be found on both the ooc and rpg sidebars) if you wish your character ill will and from there we'll organize experiments. It can be anything from the norm light/dark injections to just being stuck with a prick; whatever it is, you can sort that out with your experimenter. BUT the difference from before is that once released, the only memory that your character will have is that they were serving time.

Oh, and Org members, be sure to check the comm if you haven't already!

Week Change - Week 35



The Week in Review



The dynamic duo of Timon and Pumbaa stumbled upon the new door to a world of demons and monster -- the Netherworld! Friends were lost and alliances forged while daring rescues were carried forth and some misunderstandings were cleared up. But what's happened to the eleventh Doctor? And what does the tenth Doctor mean when he says there's nothing out there?




New Characters


Please welcome [livejournal.com profile] moardarknessplz and returning characters [livejournal.com profile] oi_earthgirl and [livejournal.com profile] forpudding to the game! Remember to add them to your friends list if you have not already. And don't forget to unban our returning journals, too!




Plot
Hey, do the skies look a little dark? Did it just get colder? Is that...snow? Your eyes aren't playing tricks on you -- something's gone haywire with Paixao's weather system and now there's all snow, all the time! Though sometimes the snowfall is calm and gentle, the occasional blizzard will kick the wind up and make being outdoors unpleasant at best! And over time, the snow will begin to build up...


How will your character react to this change? Will they throw on some mittens and make a snowman? Shiver miserably from weather exposure? Put on a shirt for once? It's up to you!




Next Week Change is October 23rd!
 
 
07 August 2011 @ 04:12 pm
Hey guys! You might have noticed, but week change is a bit late this time. Originally it was supposed to go up on the 31st, but with the recent DDoS attack we had decided to give you another week to finish up the week. :|b In addition, while the AC is coming up, we'll be giving you some extra time to finish that to make up for time lost during the DDoS, too. Now with that out of the way...

Week Change - Week 34


The Week in Review

Many new faces wandered through the gates of Paixao, leading to many, many meetings new and old. Meanwhile, in the Pride Lands, a usurper king began to stake his claim on the memories of a world.

Plot


If anyone in the Pride Lands were to go to the large baobab tree and nose around closely, they might just find a door hidden there.


Announcements


Hey, guys, if you haven't already, please hit up this post and answer the poll with your opinion! We'll announce the results and some other things soon.

As for the door in the Pride Lands, anyone can do a thread where they find it, but it's going to be on a first-come, first-serve basis. XD If you want your character to find the door, make sure to either call it or put up the thread! And don't forget to let us know when your character is going to check out the next floor so we can keep an eye on the thread and put up the next floor information once you get there.

And, as always, don't forget to update your friends list using the add/remove!

This was a busy week for the people of Paixao. As more people made their way--willing or otherwise--into the newest floor, Link, The Master, and NiGHTS made their way to battle the Unversed lurking in Halloween Town.

The Pridelands were made available to all seeking the next step in their journey through the floors of Castle Oblivion. Duma opened up his safe haven at the chapel to all in need of a sanctuary.

Week Change - Week 30

The Week in Review

After a second pilgrimage of a certain group, a door has been breached to another floor:



Welcome to the Pride Lands!

New Characters

Some old, some new! [livejournal.com profile] lyricalsummons, [livejournal.com profile] alottalottie, [livejournal.com profile] agorillaspeaks, [livejournal.com profile] biphasic, [livejournal.com profile] sugaryoptimist, [livejournal.com profile] waterfielding, and [livejournal.com profile] lionessofwar!

Weather

Paixao's weather remains pleasant. Weather patterns across the other floors remains the same. As for our new area, you'll be greeted with drizzles off and on in the Pride Lands.

Plot

FINALLY. We've been wanting to open this up for eons for you guys! It's been so hard not to say anything whenever someone's like "Ha, you know what'd be amusing? The Pride Lands" and we'd just be cackling in the background like "Yeah, we know." Funny now that we have much more lions than we did when this first came into fruition...

So, yes. Welcome to the Pride Lands. Well, almost. The place you first arrive in is gloomy, creepy and full of bones; elephant bones. The door in the wall of some of the caverns there leads you out into the Elephant Graveyard. We do suggest you move pretty quickly however, since you might've just heard some cackling in the distance.

Characters will also find, likely to their displeasure, that upon entering... they'll take on animal form. (This is, as with everything, optional.) An African animal, mind you. Mostly anything believably found in mid-Africa.

A guide to the Pride Lands and beyond... (Warning: Graphic heavy.) )

Week Change - Week 29


The Week in Review


At last the fog that has been choking the streets of Paixao has dissipated, though many already had broken out of it through sheer will and the unbreakable connections of their friends and loved ones. Further beyond the floors of Castle Oblivion, the outsiders continued their way through the floor resembling Spira, some discovering clues - but will they know what to do with them? Others simply enjoyed Paixao as a new place to create bonds, spreading out across the full city in a wild game of tag.


New Characters


Familiar and new faces! Welcome: [livejournal.com profile] bullseying, [livejournal.com profile] manusexosus, [livejournal.com profile] melodyofwater, [livejournal.com profile] masterfulflames, [livejournal.com profile] green_pizzicato, [livejournal.com profile] beats_in_time, and [livejournal.com profile] bratinahat!

Don't forget about our friends add/remove list.


Weather


Welcome back to clear nights in Paixao.


Announcements


Gah, a day late. Sorry about that folks. A pointed out, the fog-plot is officially done. Characters that were under the influence have either broken it themselves or received the cure that Team Science whipped together, and the fog itself has finally dissipated.

We would still love opinions from anyone here concerning overall plot function of the game. Spira logs have been progressing, but we're still really hoping to see characters arrive in Zanarkand before the next week change. You can find the Spira Primer here.

If you have any questions just ask us! We only bite and/or maim each other on the mod team. Hayley is the go-to mod in regards to Spira and moving through Zanarkand, but the rest of us still can offer help, or whatever anyone may need. Any venue, whether it be IM, LJ message, email... we're here for you guys.

The next week change will be March 13th.

The Week in Review


The mysterious fog continues unabated, though efforts have been made to discover the cause...as well as who might be behind it. Relationships have been tested and loved ones have been reunited. Meanwhile, the Organization is ever watchful -- a couple of members seem to be plotting something, using the visitors as chess pieces. Exploration into Spira continues as some groups draw ever closer to the final destination. Newer arrivals in the city find themselves aided by a number of helpful individuals, but until the paranoia ceases, how safe are they truly?

New Characters


Please welcome [livejournal.com profile] inthisstyle, [livejournal.com profile] heartstoblend, [livejournal.com profile] esperize, [livejournal.com profile] brokemysmoulder, [livejournal.com profile] sundrophair, [livejournal.com profile] meerkatmama, [livejournal.com profile] arrowgunner , [livejournal.com profile] needsadult, [livejournal.com profile] flowersinhell, [livejournal.com profile] keybladedancer, [livejournal.com profile] notched_hate, [livejournal.com profile] letunityblossom, and returning characters [livejournal.com profile] hasagift and [livejournal.com profile] therightcurves to the game!
