Soo would anyone be interested in running into a hungry vampire? Rest assured that Edith is not a killer so there's no risk to your character's life.

What: Haruna decides to investigate the Fish Market and the sea. A sign of normality for her?a
When: 20 July, Near Dusk
Notice: I'd rather have just have multiple users in one thread instead of multi threading if possible
( The mental model continued to watch the waves as her eyes closed, this was a new experience. How many of her fellow members of the Fleet had experienced this? She had never thought of it and without her being able to contact the others she'd never know. 'Is this loneliness?' She asked softly as her green eyes opened. )
...and I should preface this by saying I'm letting Ganelon go home. He was a shot in the dark that didn't quite pan out.
ANYWAY this is Vincent Valentine from FFVII Compilation. He's specifically coming in from mid Dirge of Cerberus, when he's found out a little bit about the entity that resides within him, but no one's yanked out the protomateria in his chest that gives him the ability to control the beast somewhat.
:) I'll be introing him soon <3
[A very angry, colorful looking woman is gracing the network, and she doesn't care that this message gets everywhere.]
Why was I in some floating coffin?! And what's with all that crap with that other new hologram?! [She so hopes the Holograms aren't expanding more...] And these tacky necklaces! [Which she holds up. Hers is yellow with a couple of green spots. Loads better than the Jem earrings, but still!]
You're gonna have to leave those Holograms to come and get me!
[The video ends on that pleasant note. All she can think of doing is ringing Techrat's scrawny little neck once he gets there.]
Beth here, your resident Sonico and Faye, this time bringing in a rather different creature - Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas.
If you haven't seen this you are either a) younger than me and therefore somehow this film has slipped your popular culture or b) a person with an empty life. Seriously, watch it!
He will have no idea what the heck is going on, but he will love that, because he's super curious and a bit of scientist (Halloween Town stylee anyway).
As per usual, you can PM me here or please feel free to add me on Plurk at dystopiadreams.
She'd seen the hologram, and had found it impressive, but she also didn't believe it.
The last time she had found herself in a situation that made no sense it was because she and her friends had been trapped by an illusion made by a strix-possessed nosferatu. Edith looked at her hand remembering how Damian had broken out of the trap, and after a moments hesitation, closed her eyes and bit into the heel of it.
Nothing had changed when she opened them. Damn it.
Not knowing what to do now Eidth grabbed a map, along with a few flyers tucking them away in the box she had woken up with before moving on.
And so the teenager could be found wandering the city, box tucked under one arm, map in one hand, and her phone from home in the other as she fruitlessly tried to phone home. She hadn't healed her hand yet, she figured she couldn't waste the Vitae until she knew more about what was happening.
"Maybe a text would work better." She said to herself as she gave up trying to call. "Last time those still worked... ugh if I've been walking around in circles this whole time Cassandra's never going to let me forg-oof"
Edith fell back on her backside as she bounce off whoever she had just walked into.
"Oh! Sorry!" She said reflexively, looking up to see who she had bumped into.
I'm Nat and I will be playing Edith a fledgling from a Vampire the Requiem/Chronicles of Darkness game.(For anyone familiar with the canon and confused by Edith's username, the Camarilla got reestablished in the campaign.)
Edith was a painfully shy girl who got sired by accident and caught up in was escalated into a war between modern New York vampires and an Elder from roman times. Thankfully her side won but she's still getting used to her new position and the fact people actually think she's like... really powerful or something? Yes the poor girl has some self confidence issues. Clearly ripping her from her home world and sending her here is the best way to deal with them. >_>
This is my return to RP after taking a bit of a break so if you see me doing something dumb don't be scared to let me know, Edith might bite but I don't. (....Sorry I had to make a bad joke somewhere in here ^^;;;)
My plurk is Kitsune_Wolf if you're interested, but not necessary for plotting as PM's to this journal are welcome.

[After the incomprehensible text, the device switches to video when the right button gets hit by accident. What can be seen on the screen is mostly just blackness and what seems to be a....giant tongue. And very sharp fangs, closing upon the camera. There's a crunching noise, a loud beep and then all that can be seen is a blur.
Dray got started and stopped gnawing on the communicator when it made an angry noise at him. Perhaps the weird thing is alive. He peers down at it and finally, a steady image can be seen. It's not all clear if the person looking down at the camera is male or female but it's sure covered in light golden hair and has two big ears on its head.]
Thank you to all who have been really helpful when it comes to working. I have secured myself a part time job that requires me to only work three days a week. But because of that, I find myself with some times still. So I've been doing the things I usually would have back home, one of which is painting.
Why am I bringing this up you wonder? Well, it's been suggested more than once that I do this as something to do as well. Sell my paintings. But it would be requests more than selling whatever I paint in my own time. So... let me know if you want a painting done either on a canvas or on a wall :) :) :)
[It was at least thirty minutes or so before she sends out another text, this time it was completely anon.]
I have a question. What are peoples dreams here? Not like... what dream you had last night, but more... something you want to do or achieve. A dream. I'll give you an example.
Back home there was something I wanted to see up close and had been planning to before I found myself here.
Excuse me. My name is Belle.
I apologize for addressing everyone so soon. My roommate, Ildikó odala, has vanished. I haven't seen her for a few days now and... I'm worried. I fear she's left for good.
If that is the case I need to find housing else-ware or someone interested in housing with me.
Please let me know. Thank you for your attention and time.
Thanks anonymous they talked to about jobs, they actually took some of the advice about looking at the paper.]
Some of these things in here are really stupid to hire someone else to do. Like can't any of these folks handle this themselves? [Okay, they actually just mean the one bounty. Not the other ones. But their point stands, also they're a bit of an asshole. Which brings them to their other question.]
Do any of you n... folks here have any jobs a kid can do, since some of the stuff listed in here. [Holds up the newspaper to their device to make their point.] Don't strike me as the kinda places that'll hire a kid.
Also I've got no issues with getting my hands dirty and I really don't want to have to live in the orphanage here.
[They actually make a face as if being in an orphanage is the worse thing ever, before ending their video.]
The true spirit and goal of the Olympic Games is to bring together representatives from all the different cities, civil societies and public authorities to encouraged understanding across cultures. With all the eyes upon you, we ask you to send a message to the world through sport. Show the world that people of all abilities, races, nationalities and worlds can come together as one.
Now is the time for faith in the future. We look forward seeing you this July in Attleton!
[ooc: The quote is from Pierre de Coubertin founder of the International Olympic Committee. The sign up for the game can be found here, original event info and medal pictures here. Attached to the text message there’s a Event Organizer Handbook Pdf detailing the sports that will take place, explaining the rules about the power limiters, the prizes..There's also information about how to contact the organizers to sponsor the games and/or the podracers, or to become a -very much needed- volunteers.
Feel free to use this plot to have characters talk about the future games or maybe discuss the less traditional sports listed, such as Nerf throwing or PodRacing. Have fun!]
As dawn neared and he began preparations to return to his coffin, an imp that he had sent through the halls to seek out the cause of the disturbance saw something. Tucked away in a room that had gone unused for centuries, tended to by Sakuya and Patchouli, was a woman. Even with all the burns covering her body, Dracula would recognize her in a heartbeat. For 324 years, that face had been burned into his mind, and now she was in his castle.
His mind, twisted by the centuries of hate and war, instantly jumped to the most logical conclusion. Someone had created a homunculus in his wife's image and sent it to him in order to manipulate him. Upon this realization, the gears that had settled into a low chugging noise ground to life once more as an unholy roar reverberated through every stone throughout the castle. So loud was the roar that it was audible all throughout Everglade.
It did not last long and as suddenly as it had erupted from the throne of Castlevania, it ended. There were no echoes, no evidence that it had actually happened. Only a deafening silence left in its wake. Those in Castlevania itself would notice a few things. Several rooms seem to have been rearranged at random, making traversing the castle far more difficult, especially in the chambers leading to the throne. The stairs to the chamber housing Vlad's throne had collapsed, and the foyer leading into the throne looked as if some great battle had taken place with smoldering carpets and gashes ripped through the stone walls. Every bit of furniture had been shoved up against the door to the throne room as well serving as a makeshift barricade. The monsters within the structure were also far more aggressive than normal. The undead that had previously just wandered aimlessly without purpose were now roaming in packs, setting up ambushes around dark corners. The werewolves and demons were actively hunting now, lashing out at any who dared walk the halls alone, and plants that had occupied themselves feeding on the frogs and bugs of the caves below the castle now burst up through the cracks in various halls, seeking out more substantial meals.
1. Taken list update
For grouped-together series like Persona, Final Fantasy, MCU, Star Wars, and so on, we've added a sub-section to the OU to identify which specific one they're from. It looks like this:
Character Name | Alias (username)
OU (VI: The Mighty Subseries) | PLAYED BY PLAYER
That said, because it wasn't previously on the Taken List, please check your character's entry if you fall under the multi-series category and verify that your character's taken list entry is correct. If it is not, please comment the taken list with the adjustments. Thank you!
2. The Photobucket Nightmare
So I'm sure some of you have noticed by now that a lot of the images were hosted on Photobucket. With their new policies, you can only direct link if you're a paid member. Which is stupid because what would be the point of uploading it to photobucket in that case when legit everywhere else is free? But I digress- no photobucket rants here, I'll stop. We've re-uploaded the main ones, but you'll still see the error if you look back at older posts because we're not going through the entire history of the game to update image links for newspapers and so on. Sorry guys.
3. Please stop messaging the mods if things aren't done immediately.
The following was added to all comm profiles and the taken page:
"Out of respect to the moderators' schedules, please only message moderators about unresponded to tasks if the time since your original request has been submitted for a week or longer. Thank you."
The exception to this would be urgent event questions, which have their own special question areas that allow moderators to check in more frequently. Because events have set times, if a moderator hasn't responded to a question that's located within the designated question area within 2-3 days please feel free to contact us about it. Don't ask the mod plurk questions ever, we only log in to post things on it and 2/3 mods don't get emails for private plurks.
The moderators all have a lot on their plate IRL, from jobs to family matters and other responsibilities. We do not have time to process tasks the second that they go through. We love your enthusiasm and are happy you have it, but please exercise patience. We're only human, and the game is designed to accommodate a slower play-style due to many of our players having busy lives so you aren't going to fall too behind if it takes us 4 days to do something. We really would appreciate it, thank you.
4. FAQ addition: Project Ways / Ways Points.
It was mentioned in the newspaper in game, but in order to make sure that players are aware it's an up-and-running function now that reduces IC travel times, we're adding it to the FAQ. Please read the entry here if you have no idea what the hell I'm talking about.
Still sussing out details, word on this soon. Hang with us. If you have an opinion you'd like to include, head on over to this post to do so. We're still checking! We will keep the poll open until 7/21 so please be sure to vote by then.
6. Rumor mill brainstorming
Hello everyone, it looks like there's been a lot of interest in starting up a rumor mill in Genessia. We'd like your ideas on how to do it. The current ideas are:
None of these are set in stone, so if you're against one of them, let us know. Have more ideas? Let us know! Comment right here to participate in discussion.
-Randomly post on plurk/discord as a "bonus" so we're not flooding the IC comm all the time. (People likely won't see it if it's a pinned post so we don't wanna do that.)
-2-3 characters picked via RNG from the taken list each week.
-Rumors may or may not be relevant but will not reveal devastating personal information. Your character's deepest darkest secret isn't going to be revealed because of a fun gossip thing.
-If the rumor is NSFW in nature it will be phrased implicitly. No rumors may contain explicit content.
-If mods miss a week, same topics are repeated for the next week? They're just that hot of news, goodness.
Questions, comments concerns about any of this? Reply here and a mod will get back to you as soon as possible.
There's one more thing about her, but it's a major SPOILER if you're not caught up with the current comic, so I'll just put it under a cut:
( SPOILER CUT )
I'm at thesparklequeen for plots and stuff!
What:Lisa arrives, faints, and is taken to the castle where all hell breaks loose.
Where: Just outside of the bay and then Castlevania.
Warning: Lots of feels, confusion, and then all hell breaking loose at the Castle.
( She was the only human holding the gates of hell closed... )
Oh, yeah, and also saving people's lives and battling villains! For you see, Peter has a second identity known as "Spider-Man", and if you don't know who Spider-Man is he's just your friendly neighborhood guy with spider powers including but not limited to: creating webbing, superhuman reflexes, super strength & a brand spanking fancy new technological suit with a bunch of new additions!
I have a permissions post set up over here if you'd like to opt-out from threading with him at all/want to avoid him talking about anything spoilery. As a general rule of thumb, if you don't post there I'll do my best to avoid spoilers but if they crop up then they crop up. No matter what I'll always warn for spoilers so people don't stumble across them by accident!
If you'd like to add me, you can reach me in one of two places: My plurk, which (still getting the hang of it) is over at ninebaII OR my Discord which is "Cirno#1161"
It's nice to meet all of you and I'm looking forward to RPing with you! c:
Hi all, it's your local neighborhood Meido again. First off, I've dropped Eidola and Rowan- both of their voices completely escaped me and I lost all confidence to work with them. I'm sorry to the people who filled out Eidola's permissions post, but thank you so much for doing so! ;; She may come back at a later date when I'm comfortable again but as of right now it's best to put her away.
Secondly, I am bringing with me now someone I thought about playing once before but totally chickened out
Lastly, because I am the Master of
I am unbelievably nervous about bringing Alucard in, but I hope I can do him justice! ;;
