Well, Friends

I assume that this is the end. Unfortunately I don't have the time or energy to mod the game single-handedly, and no one else is able to dedicate time or energy to modding. Given the activity (or total lack there of) this past month, I don't think there is much point in fighting it.

I thank you all again for all you brought to the game, a year and a half is truly a great run for games this day and age! My sincere apologies to those who did not get to play out the plots they hoped to. I genuinely wish I'd had more time to write, but 2012 is a game I will never forget. Thank you again.

Community and threads will, of course, be left up for use for examples and strolls down memory lane. You're free to stay in the comm if you have F-locked entries you need to access, otherwise the unfriend all button has been provided below.

Game Closed. Thank you all once again.

So... the status is!

It seems we still have a decent number of players still interested, or at least considering sticking around. This is both good and bad news, as it seems worth it to still give it a shot, but would suck if effort is put into it and it still fizzles.

Ben officially leaving is obviously a big issue for me, as he has long been the one to pick up the mod-slack when work called me away, and work is about to call me away a lot more often. ...a lot more often. So, here's how I see things from where I stand. ...or sit as the case may be.

I need to be, at best, a co-mod. I believe the game needs, and deserves, a mod who can dedicate more time, thought and energy than I am currently capable of doing.
Some new, big, over-arching plot needs to be established, to give both current and potential future players a 'road map' of where things are headed.
Characters and teams in general need to be assessed and things re-structured in order to give the best interaction possible.

Modding has been a pleasure and a joy, no question, but times are changing and I simply cannot do it as I have before. First step, from my point of view, would be to find a person or persons willing to step up and mod the game. I'll be happy to help with what time I have, to offer suggestions and guidance from my experience. Once that whole issue is settled and the torch has been passed, we can discuss more. If you're interested, please let me know. :)

Thanks again for all your amazing work over the game!

... *faints*

OK, insanity is settling down (for now) on my end. I think it's pretty obvious that activity check is going to be abysmal, so instead of fighting through tags, I'm going to do it this way:


I will more fully look at the status of things this weekend. I am unfortunately beyond drained as I have literally been working my ass off for two weeks, and my brain is mush.

I also have concerns because things in my life are about to change. Traditionally, not just in this game but in any game I've ever been in, activity falls apart whenever the mod is away for any length of time. Well, guess what? Traveling a lot is about to become a major part of my job, so that's a serious issue. I may need to simply hand the reigns of the game over to someone else with the time and means. It sucks, I hate to do it, but I know for a fact I'm not going to be able to give the same time and attention as I did before.

Regardless of what happens, let me just say that this game has been a pleasure to mod and I thank you all for the time, imagination and talent you gave to it. It has been a true joy.

hey gang,

at this point it's pretty obvious that RL has won the war. i have to face facts and accept that any notions of me having time to actually play any time in the near future is just a pipe dream, so i'm regretfully and officially saying farewell.

this game has been awesome, at times epic and grand, at others intimate like a PSL, but always awesome. i've had so much fun, and met some pretty great people all in all. it makes me sad to say goodbye, but it's the only logical decision to make right now. i'm so sorry to the ppl i left hanging when my life exploded. i'm sure we'll meet again in cyberspace whenever life eases up long enough for me to consider RPing again, like when the house is finished and i don't have to work 2 jobs and mom's not in need of nursing, etc. yeah, i know. life got pretty crazy over here, but what are you gonna do??? :D

my love and my thanks for all the great writing and ideas and my best wishes for your future RPing. hugs all around.

The good, the bad and the AFK

So the opportunity I've been hoping for over the past decade pretty much happened to me tonight. Thrilling. Exciting. It also means I won't be around at all until Wednesday. Last minute changes will have me insanely busy, on the road and not sleeping nearly enough until then. Very sorry for the last minute notice, but activity check won't be done until at least then, and we should probably have an all-game talk about what's going on and what should happen when I'm back.

Again sorry, please wish me luck and sanity while this goes on, I will need it!

A Farewell

Scout has decided to leave the game, please wish her well! The friends list has been updated accordingly, so please update your list. Aurora, Boom Boom and Husk are available once again. BTW, if you are not feeling the game anymore, I would much rather you speak up now so that people can be removed with minimal effort. There will be no anger or drama, it's honestly much easier to know where the game stands if people speak up. Just an FYI. :)

Going to be away...

Just wanted to give the heads up that I'm going to be out of town for work basically all of next week. This weekend will be spent packing and entertaining an out-of-town co-worker who is apparently going to be crashing at my place. (Hurray for people telling me this just today!)

That means holds/apps are going to be put on hold until I get back. I'm still hoping for and encouraging feedback on the plot thread below, I'd really like to hear from you all.

This is also the activity check reminder... it's happening Friday. I will be back in town at the buttcrack of dawn next Saturday, so it'll happen then.

As tomorrow's pretty much the last day I'm going to be available for a while, I wish you all a good week and hope to see some more activity!

Feb. 27th, 2011


Let's talk: Plot

So, it's that time and I need feedback from you all. Game has been going for a long while now and I know may people are feeling something of a slump. That's what this thread is about, I would love to put together some big plot, possibly change things up a bit and get things really, really exciting for you all once again. I know that I'm often set to 'away' because of work, but that doesn't mean I'm not available to talk, help plot, etc, please remember that!

We have the dream thing in place which will hopefully give characters something to talk about, but we need more, bigger, long term, over-arching, character-impacting plot, and I want your ideas. What kind of thing would you like to see? It can be a plot out of the comics/cartoons or something totally different and random. What's lacking, what are you itching for, what do you want to write?

Post here, let's start talking and get some momentum going!
Also, activity check has gone out, thanks to all who passed. Please remember that finishing or at lease concluding threads is important too! Don't leave your fellow players hanging. Stay awesome, guys!

Hey everyone! I think David's already mentioned that there's a new player, but I figured I'd drop in and introduce myself properly. I'm Teresa, and I'll be playing Terry Cassidy/Siryn. For any of you who want to read about her, the details are here. Her info is a little long, so I'll sum it up.

Terry's a resident at the Haven right now, although she's been away for a few months following a panic attack when she thought she was pregnant. She called Jamie, left a long rambling voicemail telling him about it, and took off. By now she's obviously figured out that it was a false alarm and is back at the Haven, avoiding Jamie and dodging questions about why she was gone. She's got her powers, but hasn't figured out that she can fly or manipulate people with her voice yet. She's very religious and would love to go to church with all you Christians out there, but sometimes she has to be dragged into it. She's also an alcoholic, although she's been sober for a couple years now; it's still a problem she struggles with.

As you can tell from the false-pregnancy storyline, I'm totally up for keeping any relationships your characters might have had with the previous Siryn, so tell me about them and we'll see if we can fit them in!

Feb. 23rd, 2011


Please welcome..!

Hello gang, we have a new player today! Please welcome Teresa, who is bringing in Siryn. She's been around the Haven, took off for a bit and is now back again, so characters who have been here a while can plot for some back history. Please give her a warm welcome, start your plotting and please be sure to update your friends lists.

Activity Check Reminder!

Activity check is coming up on the 25th, just as a reminder! Make sure each of your characters has been in a thread on or after the 12th to pass.

Sadly, we've had two characters removed for activity issues, Cannonball and Mystique. Both characters are available to be applied for once again. The friends list has been updated accordingly.

Just as a warning, I will be out of town from the 9th until the 12th of next month, so activity check may not happen until Sunday, March 13th. That said, it will still run the usual two weeks, even if warnings don't go out until a little later. I have a work-related seminar to go to, complete with travel, and will likely not be online at all during that time span. Just giving everyone the full heads up there!

Feb. 22nd, 2011


OMFG INTERNET WTF?????????????????

ugh have to be up in 6 hours for work. finally have internet back. maybe i can be on tomorrow evening for a bit.

Feb. 14th, 2011


Activity check!

Just letting you all know that the activity check was done today. Better two/three days late than never? Sorry for the delay. A very short list of warnings were issued, as always, thank you to everyone who passed! If you did pass the check but did not add your character tag to the thread and received an email warning, please just reply with the thread (be sure to add your tag to it!) so I can update the records.

We've had a few more holds/nibbles of interest in the game, hurray for continuing interest and possible new blood! Thank you to everyone who has helped me in advertising the game.

Feb. 12th, 2011


RL: 1, Ben: 0

more like RL: Ten Gazillion, Ben: Zero

sorry folks, for poofing this weekend. there is a weekend long seminar going on related to my new job, but it's pretty pricey and so i wasn't going to go. turns out my boss decided to pay for it at the last second, so i have no life until tomorrow night, when i expect to collapse, to be honest. however, i should be around to plot some stuff out and i could possibly play monday evening when i get home. or something >.>

i know, i know. i fail. sorry again.

Dear amazing people that I write with:

I am really, really sorry for my recent silence. I've caught some flavor of the bug going around the office and have been fighting very hard to recover from it. While I'm almost symptom free at this point, I'm utterly exhausted and my brain is not working with me. No, seriously. Half an hour of Raving Rabbits and I feel like I've run a marathon. Stringing together coherent paragraphs is nearly impossible, and I really should have saved a non-spellchecked version of this so you could see just how poorly my neurons are firing.

Just letting you know that I haven't poofed and that I'm very sorry. I've had a Kurt opener sitting half finished since Sat. Hoping that tomorrow will see me much better and back in business, but just in case I'm not, you know why. So, sorry again, stay awesome?

Feb. 4th, 2011


Activity Check Reminder!

It's almost that time again! Check will take place next Friday, make sure each of your characters has been in a thread on or after the 29th to pass!

And personal here so as to not spam the ooc )

Jan. 29th, 2011



Activity check has been done and almost every single character passed, so thank you all for that! Heather/Tinker have been removed from the game due to activity issues, so the only thing needed from you tonight is to update the friends button to get your accounts current with this change. Thanks guys, stay awesome!

PS... Anyone think they have the whole sequence of visions events figured out?

Jan. 26th, 2011


Hey kids.

So because of various OOC factors some threads need to be scrapped, some wrapped up, and some just done period haha.

I figured it would be easiest to just post here.. so, knowing Ally has been having computer problems we will probably scrap the paige/jay/sam thread and we can do others soon when each of you are ready. Until then, anyone want to play with Paige? Want to plot with her?

Annd with Toby and Kitty because poor Ben is strapped for time atm I'll try to wrap that thread up sans logan for now, may not get to it tonight might tomorrow. And that leaves Toby open for threading as well.

Aurora is being flat out crazy so she is open atm, and that leaves Boom Boom who had a flurry of threads recently but is open for any interaction.

If you see me on AIM don't hesitate to hit me up, okayyy??

Introducing Razorback

So yes, my last puppy... or in this case, pigglet? Sorta. Although he would be mightily offended if you mention it to him. :D

Razorback is Ursus's half-brother, and the boys are just discovering the relationship. Or rather Lucien is. Bernard knew he had an asshole for a father, so he is not terribly phased by the revelation of a brother. He will soonish be joining the broho, as soon as Lucien can convince him, so if you'd like a line with him, hit me up.

Also, this is BEN'S FAULT. Doesn't the PB look a lot like Vin Diesel?

Jan. 20th, 2011



Last OOC from me for the day, I swear!

Please go hit the friends button, as Jade is bringing in her last, Razorback. He's off in Hawaii still, but should be showing up shortly.

Expect the plot to start hitting soonish. Please keep in mind that while I cannot stop you all from copy/pasting/forwarding dream visions to each other, I would encourage you to talk about them without sharing the whole of the text. Half the fun is asking questions, comparing notes and drawing conclusions, so use this as a good excuse to touch base with each other!

Also: Please keep in mind that what you will "see" is one possible outcome, nothing set in stone and certainly not an attempt to godmod your characters. The promotion slogan for this arc is Fight the Future, so your character hating what they see and wanting to change it is a good thing! Any pimping/advertising you do for the game is always loved. Early reminder, activity check will happen on the 28th, so make sure each of your characters has been in a thread on or after the 15th to pass. That's all for now, I'm going to go throw something at the guy loudly playing guitar and singing way off-key with his windows open.
