Anyway!
Plot time! Good fun trope time!


Starting on Sunday, October 6th, characters in town will wake up de-aged! Players that want to participate can choose any age for their characters to be spanning from younger childhood to —well. Anything younger than what they are now! (No babies please, that’s not safe!)

Affected characters while de-aged will have mostly memories from the age they were at that point, with a few vague memories from now and in-between mixed in so that all these poor kids aren’t just forced to feel like they’ve gotta deal with stranger danger and asking for their parents the whole time.

Little tiny FAQ:

+ Do I have to participate?
Not actively? But this stuff will be happening around your characters, so you can’t really ignore it either.

+ If I choose to participate, do all my characters have to de-age?
No. Some are completely allowed to just be normal aged, horrified and awkward a la Arnold Schwarzenegger in Kindergarten Cop.

+ Will the doors still be open for this plot?
Oh yes.

+ If my character was never a child, can they be de-aged?
No? I don’t think so? Change my mind if you want it.

+ How long does this plot last?
8 days! 10-6 to 10-13! Backdating is, as ever, totally fine.

+ Why?
Because this place is weird, and weird things happen sometimes.

Anyhow! Now there's time for questions, planning and plotting -- also finding some icons if you’re into that sort of thing!

I bet you think I forgot about you, didn't you? Well I didn't! Time for a little plot.

From tomorrow until the 22nd of August, the heat in Starklandia will be sweltering. We're talkin' 100+ Grossout McGee sticky nonsense. It's terrible. Why didn't anyone think to build air conditioning?

Wanna try your odds at finding somewhere with nicer weather through the doors? Well. (In)Conveniently, they're only opening up to desert locales.

Let's end this summer by having some fun with heatstroke in the sun!

Hey all, I'm going to post a summary of what happened during the full moon (which is technically tonight), so that y'all can post whatever you want in the aftermath but know that tonight, overnight, (7/16 into 7/17) is when all of this is happening. The good news is, nobody died! There was a bite, but you have to read below to find out who it was. GASP.

Also, the Werewolf plot happens tonight, 7pm EST so drop by the chat if you can for some fun real time action plot. If you can't make it, nbd, there'll be a summary of what went down posted later in the ooc for future plotting!

Additionally, keep in mind that the Super-Flu plot ends this Wednesday on the 17th!

After that everyone gets a few days off before the gifting plot begins:

July 23-31st
The Gifting Plot

Any time during this period (so, no backdating is accepted!) your character can receive a really great gift! It can be something bigger that you might not be able to get as gifts in partner threads i.e.: The TARDIS for the Doctor, or a specific room or portion of a building (that will, miraculously, fit inside your characters’ house or apartment with no problem at all with some House of Leaves and Doctor Who style bigger on the inside magic) or pretty much anything else you can think of (barring npcs, and with mod approval!). Gifts to not have to be something your character has had previously!

BUT, if your character gets a great gift, they also have to get a bad gift! These will vary by person based on canon, of course, but some examples might include: a bad memory they tried covering up, an item that reminds them of something bad that was done to them, or that they used to do something to someone else with, etc.

For a more specific example -- Tony Stark will be getting the entirety of his work labs (that will fit into the storefront building that he currently uses as a workshop, but will now span several floors, even if it doesn't look like it from the outside). That's his good gift. As a bad gift, he will be receiving the arc reactor. Or, more accurately, will wake up to it being in his chest again.

IF YOU PLAN ON PARTICIPATING IN THIS PLOT YOU MUST COMMENT IN THIS THREAD WITH WHAT YOUR CHARACTERS ARE GETTING, MOD APPROVAL IS NEEDED.

PS:
It's come to my attention that not all of us are on the same page regarding the plot/locations/etc of this game. It would be a boon to everyone to please refresh yourselves on this information.
here are the rules
this is the FAQ
Even more details here!
And here are the job and location listings.

All of these pages can normally be found within the header links, and on the members page.

Today starts the Super-Flu plot! It runs until July 17th!

Just as a recap, the illness will blow through one of the doors that was opened at random and will seek out those who are considered anything about a normal, baseline human. This can be super humans, mutants, jedi, aliens, wizards/sorcerers, etc. How the illness hits your character is up to you! They can have a sniffle, a fever, or lose their powers/enhancements completely, or have their powers be completely out of whack and not work properly. Wizards could be unable to do magic, or feel worse and make themselves more sick when they do it or— well, the sky’s the limit.

Base human characters are, for once, better off than the others. Take that!

Characters can opt out of the plot/sickness by having been through other doors the time that it swept into town. It might be possible to find a cure with enough brain-storming, though. And if not, well, it’ll wear off naturally in 12 days. Sometimes, the real cure is the plots you found along the way.

As ever, plotting, questions or comments are encouraged!
(And, if there’s a different type or plot or idea you have that you’d like to see in the future, please feel free to tell me about it!)

Hello friends!

Today was the last day for Pokemon related things! Hope everyone got what they wanted and are on their way to wrapping up stuff from that plot, coz we’ve got more things on the way! If you haven’t already, please leave a note saying what pokemans your characters got here so I can make a chart about it!

The new plots aren’t starting up yet but I’m gonna give ya’ll a schedule for them and the general break down just so everyone can do some plotting, because these are kinda heavy ones, and I think they require some forethought and planning.

July 6th-17th:
The Super-Flu

Early on July 6th, someone is going to open a Door and something terrible is going to blow through it, like an alternate-dimensional plague.

Any characters that deviate from Earth Standard Norms (this means super-powered, augmented, alien, whatever) are going to come down with a mysterious illness. How this illness might affect your character is up to you, for the most part. If they had powers they might lose them, if they were scientifically augmented they might go back to how they’d been before that, if your character is a magic user they could either lose their magic or maybe become very ill every time they try using a spell, etc.

Our characters are going to have to writhe around in agony and sadness for 12 days (when it will wear off naturally), unless they can figure out some kind of cure! The caveat to this is, the doors will not open for those twelve days!

Characters are free to opt out by having been through the doors when the plague was let in, and they can return through the doors even if no one can leave through them!

July 23-31st
The Gifting Plot

Any time during this period your character can receive a really great gift! It can be something bigger than you might not be able to get as gifts in partner threads i.e.: The TARDIS for the Doctor, or a specific room or portion of a building (that will, miraculously, fit inside your characters’ house or apartment with no problem at all with some House of Leaves and Doctor Who style bigger on the inside magic) or pretty much anything else you can think of (barring npcs, and with mod approval!).

BUT, if your character gets a great gift, they also have to get a bad gift! These will vary by person based on canon, of course, but some examples might include: a bad memory they tried covering up, an item that reminds them of something bad that was done to them, or that they used to do something to someone else with, etc etc.

Ask your questions here about any of the following.


Additionally:
I’m going to be gone a lot of next week and I might not be around to bug you to get your Activity in! But it’s due, as ever, on the last day of the month! Do it early, so you don’t forget! :)

Hello friends!

Fun things are coming! Saddle up for our first game-wide plot which starts on April 1st and will last for three days.

April 1st means April Fool’s! Starting on midnight of the 1st, the Doors in the Dimensional House will only open to one place. And that place is an alternate dimension where heroes of all kinds are both real and very celebrated. This’d probably be a great place to break free and get some answers or help or something from a public where Avengers and Space Travelers (etc) exist except….

The doors only open up to a Convention Hall where a Heroes Con is in full swing. There’s no getting out of the hall / hotel that it’s taking place in, so the real challenge will probably be arguing with hardcore fans about how your cosplay is all wrong, or fighting for that very last Hawkeye t-shirt at the booths.

Please feel free to use this post for plotting purposes!

Additionally:
1) Tomorrow is the very last day to get in your Activity! Players that came in on the 20th or later are exempt, but checking in just to say you’re still around would be good practice for the future!
2) Also last chance to sign up for partner threads if you haven’t done so already! (Its part of the activity check!). Lemme know here or there if you wanna be included so we can get those assignments out ASAP — possibly hopefully on the same day the plot rolls out? Remember you get gifts for participation!
