Hello Outlanders! I'm Jory. I've been dipping my toes in on your network for the last month and I think it's about time I sent out an invite to my favorite place in the world - Infinite Green. Some of you already know the best magical plant nursery in Vallo, but for those who don't, you can find it at [address] and all Outlanders can mention this post and get a 30% discount thru the end of this month. We've got more plants than you've ever seen inside one building, magically knowledgeable staff, remedy tea brewing on the spot, and the coziest little reading room a plant lover could ever want. (I promise not to make a habit of this cheesy advertising, I just really love my job.)

[FILTERED TO SHIFTERS AND WERES*]
So this is going to be a little awkward, but I hope you'll bear with me for a few minutes. I'm a witch in the Ankou coven and I have a weird personal situation that sort of applies to you all? Well, only if you want it to apply to you anyway.

About four months ago, I was a part of a seance to connect with a murdered werewolf to try and give him peace. The way our mediumship works in Ankou, we get a sort of soulbond going during a seance and take on thoughts, feelings, and abilities of the spirits we connect with. I screwed up Something went wrong in my seance and now I can't shake this stubborn guy. I'm not a werewolf, but I often get the emotions of one and sometimes some of the physical qualities. Strength, speed, sense of smell, the occasional growl that startles the crap out of my hedgehog, that kind of thing. I'm adjusting at this point and it's mainly just full moon discomfort and some outbursts I have to apologize for. Nothing like what real werewolves have to deal with, that's for sure, but it does give me a glimpse into the kind of life some of you live.

So why am I bugging you? Well, our coven is trying to increase our outreach to outsiders, particularly supernatural groups. I've been semi-officially named the were/shifter liaison. I have ZERO idea what I'm doing and have no ambition either. But I'd like to get to know you all better, maybe find a way for my coven to connect with you and offer our friendship and aid. And our really great block parties? Okay, that's it! Thanks if you read this far. I tried like twelve times to cut this down to something more reasonable but it just wasn't happening. Hit me up if you want to talk or just come by the nursery.
[OOC: *any weres or shifters that have openly admitted to being such either on the network or in-person where anyone could overhear.]

I know we have a lot of insomniacs around here - or people who just don't sleep well for one reason or another. I see plenty at the clinic for individual appointments so I thought I'd try to put together something where I see a bunch of people at once? Not sure how this will go but it's an attempt.

Still trying to come up with clever names - so far all I've got is Sleep Seminar, and it'll be this coming Monday starting at six. I'll probably have it catered so rumbling stomachs don't interrupt but here's what I planned to go over:

• Temporarily changing your sleep schedule to boost sleeping power
• The Art of Doing Nothing
• Answering questions like - what’s the latest time you should drink caffeine or eat dinner? Should every bit of light be eliminated from your room? What about using your phones or laptops in bed?

So if you're interested, come by the DOA building - it'll be in the same room as the AA/NA and Death Club meetings, on that basement level. If you're not interested, well. Here's a picture of my death-sense cat:

Perfecting the stare of judgment, as usual.

Anyone want to establish a hand-to-hand practise? I performed pathetically in my first Fight Club last month. Call me egotistical but I'm not accustomed to losing, so clearly some work is in order. I usually fight with a trident and magic. I wouldn't mind keeping either or both of those polished provided that you can practice a strong fire block.

I arrived just before the magic-draining mess last month. Name's Altan, for those who don't remember. I'm on Defense Squad C.




You appear to have a thriving black market. I made the rounds last week. Where do the goods come from?

Whelp, I think I've officially combed every likely place on this entire island, so this is my last ditch effort before I officially call it quits.

I'm looking for a man named D, sometimes goes by Count D. He's got black, bone-straight hair, cut like a Hanson brother, an untrustworthy smile, a snug, superior tone of voice that'll make your skin crawl, and a sweet tooth that'd put an Oompa Loompa to shame. His right eye is golden and his left eye is violet. If you have any information on him, please contact me, Leon Orcot.

And D, if you're seeing this you might as well give it up and come forward. You've got to be as tired of this cat and mouse shit as I am.



Unrelated, I guess I should finally start looking for work. I've done day labour and cash jobs for the last ten years, if anyone knows of anything like that around.

Before that I was a detective with the LAPD, so if you need something found, I'm your man.

I want to apologize to the new guy Catra and I found in the forest today. He was already scared, and the glowing eight-foot-tall lady and sexy catgirl probably didn't help the situation. We got him back to the DOA, but it was a feat.

So, new guy, I think you were too busy screaming and swearing to tell us your name - but I'm really sorry for scaring you even more. I hope you're okay. And I promise to be normal-sized next time I see you.

Per the commander - If you are missing a relative or loved one, please provide their name and description here and available Defense members will look for them. Some of us have been affected by the loss of magic, so your patience is going to go a long way.

I can't promise you anything, but waiting without word is fucked.

My name is Altan Trengsin. I arrived yesterday morning.

I've gone through the provided welcome information but I can't find an answer - is there not a separate military squad for those with magical ability? I did see the Department of Defense but it appears as if everyone is grouped together, which wouldn't be ideal nor tolerated where I'm from.

(This isn't a complaint or a suggestion that your approach is wrong. I'll tell you when I think you're wrong. This is just... confusion. Flat out.)

What the actual fuck, Vallo. August? What the hell happened to March through July?

Alright, dumb dumbs, who's still kicking around and buying me a drink? Or several.
