Hello everyone!

We would like to clarify and make known a few things just so we can proceed with the event smoothly. Please take some time to read this, and any questions regarding any of the items mentioned may be directed to this post.

  1. Emotion Tracker: In order to determine the prompts and outcomes for the third and fourth portions, we have set up a designated tracker for the emotions on Aiada’s spectrum. Please try to get in your submissions as soon as possible to shape the event! The ET can be found here. We highly encourage those participating to submit to the emotion tracker. While optional, responses to the ET help us greatly, especially in a situation like this where emotions determine the outcome of the event. Please try to make an effort to submit to the ET! Remember, threads do not have to be complete to count, just far enough along to show that something’s happening!

  3. Stone Tracker: In addition to the emotion tracker, we will have a tracker for the stone orbs that relate to the temple doors. This will also influence the outcome of the second half of the event. As the stones are required to open the temple, there may be serious consequences if the temple doors are not opened. Keep in mind, that like the emotion tracker, threads can be in progress, as long as obvious progress is being made (more than a handful of comments, please)! They do NOT have to be finished threads to count! In addition, more than one memory or battle can happen per thread, though no more than one instance of either per character participating in said thread. (One memory OR one battle per character per thread) The link to the stone tracker is here.

  5. Serious Consequences: This is an update on the situation of the event. Currently the event is leaning towards the bad side of things rather than the good. In which case, there may be serious consequences that will impact the setting of the game altogether if it continues. These serious consequences, while still undetermined, may be similar to the negative side effects of the past Elios event or could potentially be much worse. We, the mods, have no preference on how the event will end, however, we don’t want a bad end to be the product of misinformation, misunderstanding, or even something as workable as time constraint. This leads us to the fourth item:

  7. Event Duration: Because of the current standing of the event, we have already decided to postpone posting the next portion of the event until at least October 26th, aligning with its IC start date. But we'd like to ask for everyone's opinion if we should extend the second part (To Her Domain) of the event even further to allow more time to complete needed threads.

    So, if the player base would prefer more time for the second part, we can move back the third and fourth even farther. The implications of this may be that the event will affect the location and content of the intro log for November.

Please fill out the poll below ONCE PER PLAYER, WITH A JOURNAL WE CAN IDENTIFY.  If we do not recognize the journal as a current member of the game, we will not count the vote. 
Any additional comments or questions can be left on this post as well!

The poll will close at midnight on October 25th (the night of the 25th and 26th).

Hey, Audentes!

[Remember this face? No? That's fine, she only remembered the name "Audentes" from all the outside ALASTAIR gossip to begin with. Lilith, making a beeline through a line of other recruits to the teleportation pads, waves one-handed at the camera.]

Nice job fucking up Zymandis' shit, I guess. You really should've blown more of the ship up, t-b-h, but hey, what can you do? [Shrug.] Before I get off track 'cause of explosions, though, I've got a very important question:

What has nobody called dibs on it yet? On the mothership, I mean.

[A passing elven recruit from another team casts her a dirty look in the corner of the feed--] --Oh, come on, you guys kept the friggin' thing AND all the people in it, what're we supposed to do, put the ship in a museum? If we're gonna be wiping Zymandis out, we need all the help we can get. Know what we call that? The spoils of war, kiddies. And the Zymandis armory-- if there is one-- is gonna be some sweet spoils indeed.

Anything corrosive or incendiary's mine, by the way. Calling 'em now. Doubt it'll be Maliwan-quality, but...

Hi all! I went on hiatus a couple days ago but I only just realised now that I don't have everyone I'm currently threading with on plurk. I may not start anything new until the end of October, but I will be very slowly tagging the current threads I have now. Sorry for the slowness, things are just rather stressful right now!

This affects Weiss and Rinoa. Thank you for your understanding!

Hey, guys. Megu here. I haven't been feeling well for the past couple of days due to a nasty cold and that's been affecting my playing Honey Lemon here. I've decided to bow out for now and rest up. Honey has left a couple of things that anyone is free to take: a couple of outfits, fabrics, sewing machine, dress dummy, a portable lightning rod she uses to redirect the lightning she produces from Dunamis, a powerbank she invented to charge her electronics, and her multiverse notes she used for her lecture (which included a few pages of her figuring out if it were possible to create a breach into Verens). Hopefully, I will be well enough to app here again with this girl or someone else.

Thank you for letting me play with you guys. It was a blast. Bye!

CHARACTERS: Koltira, perhaps you
DATE: Anytime during the Oska stay
WARNINGS: blood'n'guts
SUMMARY: FRENZY, for the very last time

but it calms me down )

[ It's the most horrible time of the year, and for once, Koltira is semi-lucid enough to say so. Sort of. The pain of long restraint muddies his thoughts; garbles his speech. His voice is thick, halting. He can't maintain coherent thought for long. ]

I have isolated myself in the woods. If you value your life--you will stay away.
