Conference Delegates + Icons (in progress) [Aug. 29th, 2017|11:16 am]

changereflected
I mentioned all of this in #RP_Land, but that's hard to find now. So I'm recapping here. This post is a work in progress. I'll be making and including character icons for people to use. If I'm leaving out people, it's because I don't have enough details to fill out an entry. Comment to fill in as much of the blanks as possible for me and I'll make an entry for them. I'll also be linking to the races not attending when I'm sure I'm done with the ones who are there.

+2 Wizards (and assorted family and pets) [Jul. 30th, 2017|11:16 am]

moonlightwizard
So, since apparently threatening the New York area draws characters out of the woodwork. Meet Nita Callahan and her partner Kit Rodriguez/[info]noonforgdwizard, a pair of 15 year old wizards who work out of Long Island. Their magic basically works by using language (the Speech) to either describe what they want done, or negotiate with the universe (aka 'ask if the door wouldn't mind unlocking, please') to slow entropy and fight death. Also pretty soundly rooted in working with the laws of physics and using a learned system to describe the desired actions, so something to chat with the alchemists about.

Nita's focus started as plants and healing, but shifted to more abstract manipulation of wizardry and a wizard sister who is into computers and SPACE; Kit has a focus on machines, a dog*** who can find/go anywhere, an older sister who is not a wizard but used Kit's tampering with the household electronics to get into alien chat rooms and shopping channels, and an oldest sister who thinks he's a mutant* after she decided he wasn't working with Satan.

Given that Nita and Kit's brand of wizardry is both organized and operates both on and off-world, I can type up a precis for Mooj. I also imagine that since canonically one of North America's senior wizards lives in Des Moines**, they have relocated, and keep an eye on the Temporal Hellmouth as well as wizardry in the central US.

So, I offered to help with Casey's intro of Mandy, because Kit's dog has that finding talent (and may or may not be able to get people out of a witch's labyrinth). As I said, wizards meeting alchemists might be interesting since both are clearly working from unusual talents, but both on the 'different science' scale of science versus magic. I'd also really find it interesting to play Nita off of Ingrid -- Ingrid to get more interaction with people with special abilities, and Nita because she recently lost her mom to cancer**** and talking to another 'oldest child who lost parent' might help.

* Yes, this is canon for the series. Unlike in WoF, mutants don't exist. But apparently Helena finds them more reasonable than wizardry.
** Sadly, it is just an offhand mention of where the other senior wizards on the continent live. The two that handle the East Coast (on land) live in Nita's town and get names and personalities.
*** Okay, Ponch has a bit more going on than that.
**** Fuck cancer.

Mun post: Brief Character List (Others' Pups) [Jul. 15th, 2017|04:24 pm]

I'm posting these as a comprehensive character list with brief(ish) profiles of our characters and who's played by whom. This was written to welcom Kim, so there's a few spots where I don't elaborate much because I know she's familiar with the original canon. If this becomes problematic later for whatever weird reason, I'll flesh those out then.

(Hey, muns, please tell me I get to make my grand entrance with one of those thermal detonators in my hand. The looks I'm getting from the others for it are funny.)

I actually remember a few modern canons I play from! [Aug. 21st, 2014|07:37 pm]
wiseass_wizard
+ If we go with the registration plot, it occurs to me that The Super Patriots Inc. from the Velveteen Vs. short story series* might work as an antagonist. (Basically, a corporation that is a combination of talent agency and coordinator for superhero teams... (spoilers) that it turns out the founding member (who faked her death so she could fade into Mysterious CEO) is using mind control to keep everyone in line and lots of cash to lobby for laws that keep a near-monopoly in her universe. She'd be interested in anything that makes it harder for folks with powers to live anonymously and/or work independently). (Also, yay, getting to play an antagonist! Probably a few protagonists too.)

+ Also toying with asking about meshing in Shadow Unit (another online canon, basically 'X-Files' meets 'X-men' meets 'Criminal Minds'), but I'd have to figure out how the US handles crimes committed by folks with superpowers. (Since you add SHIELD plus the mix of official, unofficial and illegal vigilantes to the existing US police, military and legal system.) I haven't played from Shadow Unit yet, but I wrote fic. (It involved Seward, Nebraska; given that the team canonically visited UNO's campus, I don't think it's a stretch.)

+ (Also remind me to drag you all to Guardians of the Galaxy.)

+ Why are all my modern canons that aren't urban fantasy online? I don't read that many online serials.

* Which is all still online, for free.

Maria Hill is from Chicago, just like a certain wizard.

(Wikipedia has a listing of Fictional Characters from Chicago, because of course it does.)

((So we're between major storylines right now, but there's still stuff to do, characters and relationships to develop.

Right now, we have the following to do:

-Reunite the Rockbell women.
-Brian's epic quest to decide how many memories to keep, if not all of them. (I dunno how to entirely handle this one.)
-Cap and Shara need to see each other more, if we plan on having anything happen with them.
-Maybe Winry and Sheska plan a wedding? That might be cute. Ed and Alfons have one, too. (This may be the year for weddings, if Cap and Shara aren't far behind them. Good. Better than funerals.)
-Sif needs to get home eventually, and I highly suspect she'll temporarily be living with Loki between needing to be hospitalized and able to go home to full duties again. There's a sitcom in the making.

Anything else? Feel free to make up threads for whatever, guys. If you want character interaction, post here and explain what you want and tag whoever you want to interact with. LET THE GAMES BEGIN AND MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOR.

Caity, if you want a smaller storyline with Mandy before Brooklyn, that's fine. We can always have her cross paths with the Spardas or something. :Db Or Dresden! It's entirely up to you and whoever wants to play.))

How come I have about twice as many icons as any of the rest of y'all? Do y'all not like having lots of expressions to choose from or something?

Why are all the rest of you being slow? I demand you hurry up and make these silly journals already. Mundanes, you're falling behind on your jobs. Fellow convicts, quit being such pitiful creatures and give them journal names before I smite you all.
