Leaving the Game

Uh, alright. I really can't believe I'm doing this, but I haven't been "feeling the magic" for quite a while. Man, this is so hard. I'm going to have to leave CU. While I've had tons of fun and have made a lot of great friends here (friends I hope will stay in touch with me? D:), life has been pulling me in other directions and I just don't feel as connected to this game as I once did. I love the interactions, the developments, the drama, and the plotting, but I'm just so drained. Blame RL, blame my lack of willpower, but I just can't feel motivated about the game anymore.

I know some people had major plans regarding Sal's finale, and I apologize. But everyone here is remarkably creative and talented and there will be so much else to do. For my remaining characters, Dorian and Sal's "time ran out". Sal's insanity will have pushed him to the edge, and his body deteriorates into ash. Dorian will find that his body is unable to handle the physical and emotional strains of this world and will ask that his souls be taken to heaven. Meanwhile, I can have Sandalphon kill Tailypo, having caught him trying to get back into Asgard's property. As for Sandalphon herself, you can say she's always there, but she's silently watching.

Again, I hope people keep in touch. I really see you guys as a kind of family to me, you know? You've been good to me for the 1+ year I've been here. I really do apologize for being so abrupt. I love you guys! ♥

Edit: Also, if everyone would be so kind as to ICly take note that Blythe left farewell messages to Asgard and Niflheim? I emailed the players who received personal letters from her, but I wanted everyone to know that while I didn't post her letters in her IJ, I know it wouldn't be IC of her to leave without a word. She explained herself to Asgard and told them that they were the best family she could have ever had and that she'd try to keep in touch with them. As for Niflheim, she said "up yours" (paraphrased) to the really bad inhabitants, and spoke kindly to the ones who were nice to her. I hope this isn't too much trouble! I appreciate it, and thank you! ♥

CU's Anniversary

...was actually yesterday, but my browser wouldn't behave and let me post yesterday.

But still, just to pause for a moment of yay: One year ago yesterday, CU began. I started it with the high hopes that this could become a game where people wouldn't have to fret over each other and simply relax with a fun, relatively undemanding game while still providing lots of opportunities for people and their characters.

After a year, I have to say that I think that we're doing fairly well. There's bumps in the road every now and then, but that's to be expected. So I just wanted to thank all of you, each and every one of you, for participating in CU. Because it's all of us, together, that makes this game fun.

In other news, I have an organizational idea that will clear up the OOC board very much so that there's more room for simple plot discussions and the like.

A hiatus thread.
What's this?

Instead of saying "I'm going" and "i'm back" in new entries in the OOC board, how about we all comment to a hiatus thread and reply to our hiatus comment to announce when we've returned? Then a week or so after, those can be deleted and everyone has a good idea of who is where and why all in one spot!

Does this sound acceptable?

Heads up and Other Stuff

I meant to do a post about this before I went on hiatus, but didn't get the chance. So now that I'm back, here it is!

I've noticed that, for quite a while now, Niflheim has had trouble doing anything.

Long ass suggestion thing here! )

Details Of The Metatron Plot

Alright, everybody, for the next two months, it’s gonna get a little crazy. I’m going to explain the general plot and then give dates so that everyone understands what’s going on and why. The main characters involved are Chrissy’s, Mary’s, and mine, as it was our devised plot, but because it will be complex at times and because we’ll need help with some other players, this post is being made to clear everything up.

When writers invade...

TL;DR - Too many short posts are cropping up here lately, it seems, and under the cut are a few suggestions on how to lengthen posts...

Help Me Improve CU?

EDIT: PLEASE, EVERYONE, DO NOT CONTINUE EVENTS PAST PIRATE WEEK UNTIL THIS IS DISCUSSED WITH MOST PLAYERS. I know that it doesn't end until a few days from now, but I want to make SURE that most players have the choice to talk to me about what's contained here, as it will probably affect the future passing of time in CU.

If you guys have any ideas on how to possibly improve CU, let me know in the suggestion box. But also, I want to make a note for everyone~!

After the Blythe kidnapping thread events, I wanted to note that players may request that the days slow down more noticeably. My intention was to keep time loose in this game so that players could decide when to speed up or slow down themselves, but this isn't turning out too well. During plot-heavy events, whether characters are involved or not, i'm willing to have time go more slowly to ensure that things get worked on without forcing things too far ahead.

As an example, if we're undergoing a particularly plot-heavy period of time in CU, I AM willing to slow things down. If people need an actual representation of time being slowed so that people follow this better, we can do something where each day becomes one third of a day - and characters are not to go too far ahead. Time would still be loose, and characters could post things that go on early, noonish or late in the day regardless of which day it was, but people wouldn't really be welcomed to move ahead of that particular day yet.

I don't think the game is very friendly towards very involved threads right now, and I'm willing to think of ways to alter this somewhat with all of you. If you have any ideas, share them, and we can think about them. =3

Ah, and these suggestions can be shared here, the earlier link was for unrelated things as a reminder. XD

Getting Somewhere ^^

Heyya people! The long postponed thread for Tristan to get into Asgard is finally being written. It is backdated to the day before Bodyswap/switch Day. Sooooo, what had Strix and Tristan been up to since then?

This is where methinks we need more player discussion.

Jul. 6th, 2008


Important Note

Due to the current events in the game, it is no longer possible to infiltrate Asgard if you're a member of Niflheim.

Metatron has altered his wards on the house. Any member of Niflheim who tries to enter will feel as though they are trying to walk through/spell their way through/whatever a wall. But this isn't really a big deal, because there's tons of other areas for Niflheim/Asgard interaction. But with Niflheim being as...intent on doing stuff inbetween trials...Metatron has seen it best to do this.

There will be one exception for a character that will be appearing soon because of the canon ability of that character to appear anywhere and nowhere. He'll be able to appear on the steps of Asgard and simply walk through the barrier (though he will not be able to cause harm to those inside.) But i'll announce that character tomorrow or Tuesday.

EDIT: Tristan doesn't count since he's already inside, I believe...?

Jun. 20th, 2008



Alright, that "weekend break too busy to do anything but watch over you guys" took a few extra days, unfortunately. Ah, life and its many tasks~

Still, i'll be back tomorrow and start responding to any thread where it's my turn. XD If any of my characters are in an unfinished thread with you and it's not my turn, we can discuss whether or not you want to close it/discuss what happened or if you want to keep going with the thread.

Metatron will have an important post up soon - he's very disappointed in Asgard right now D=
Buut he'll be doing his best to help out.

Also, I believe today is Inquisitive Day, a Malfunction Day, in case anyone wanted to take part in it. If you miss out on it, feel free to backdate responses/journal posts or do a thread that takes place today later.

EDIT: Also, I want to make it clear to everyone. Asgard is a safe haven like Metatron said long ago. Unlike Niflheim that has its tough people on its own to protect it themselves, Asgard is a place that, yes, you can do no real damage inside of. Sure, an Asgardian might slap another Asgardian, but that's about it. No heavy damage - and even if you tried, Asgard would instantly fix itself and heal any wounds via Metatron's power. I haven't been able to look over threads as much as I've wanted, but it was something I always thought I'd made obvious but in retrospect may require clarification despite stuff i've said about it before. XD

The reason? Because Niflheim and Asgard are simply meant to be that - safe havens. The only thing is that Lucifer expects people to be able to fend for themselves, and Metatron tries to protect his team as best he can without making their decisions for them. There's lots of other territory outside of Niflheim and Asgard, after all...xD

The Difference Between R and NC-17

I'll start off by saying that I am aware this is probably perceived differently for each and every player here. We come from different cultures, different backgrounds - sometimes tv ratings aren't even the same for us. But in CU, there is a particular rating system that i've mostly figured out.

I'll include G, PG, and PG-13 here as well. Keep note - this is just for the game, to make sure that things have a more organized rating list. Also, I welcome questions or requests for further clarification - feel free to describe a scene and ask about what ratings it might have as an example, too. I'm just having trouble thinking of good examples right now.

A Quick Question~

Can any of the animals from animal cuteness day be kept? Or do they all just disappear once the event is over?

On Party Stuff ^_^

Heyya peoples! 

The party thread will be this Monday it looks like! And I haven't planned much beyond that. XD Except that either I or Dorian-player Vicky will do the first post some time approximately on Monday. If anyone has been wondering how this super-mega-thread will go, here's an example from Chaos Unraveled Version One, at the Halloween party:


One jumps in to start a line of comments, and/or one jumps a character in need of interaction. You can move from thing to thing, as long as you make it semi-clear that your character is not in two places at once of course.

Now, say if two or more players needed to get away from the party to do something? (Such as characters A and B wanted to talk alone as an example). You can post a new thread "outside" the party, like these characters did here: http://www.greatestjournal.com/community/chaos_unraveled/30872.html#cutid1

Post here for questions. If anything's murky, we can always check with Mod Lady. =D

ZOMG, hope y'all are excited!


Metatron and clothes...

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but: If Metatron gives people clothes, do they get nice party clothes for Dorian and Mitch's party if they want them?

Someone Help My OCD-Ness Please?

I wanted to bring up something that annoys me a bit, and I hate to inconvenience other people, but..well..

Since this RP has so many OCs, I notice that it's common to use icons of characters from other shows.

Thing is, this includes Death Note. So, I've seen several icons of Light, L, Mello..etc. Thing is, since I play Light, it feels weird seeing people use icons with my character in it....yes. It's like I have twins I didn't know about.

Is there any way we can have a rule that forbids people using icons of characters already in the RP?

Question about spying and other issues

I've seen some fun posts and comments about the ability of the Hell side to spy on Heaven, which is something I was hoping would happen, and I was wondering. See, one of the few abilities I've really given Frank (very loosely based on his small role in canon) is that he knows when something is wrong, especially if it's supernatural in nature. Not every time, and definitely not exactly what or who, but he does. And he can probably tell at least sometimes when people aren't what they're presenting either (e.g. if someone actually tried to infiltrate from the other side or was lying to him in a disussion.)
