January News

Post by Saruna » Mon Feb 10, 2014 12:35 am

All hail the advent of the year of Japan and the katana!

Katana count for the month of January: 7

(<3, Shane)

Aside from the holyshitnewpeople wave in January, it has been a slow month in terms of development work. While we all (both mods and players) have committed to numerous intended changes, suffice to say that between sickness, school, and totally unproductive hangout sessions, we slowed down a little. But, as procrastinators are fond of saying, there's always tomorrow!

(on a side note, amount of posting is up. Good job, guys <3)
New Pages:


Edited Pages:

Active Character List: While the stats up at the top are still not fixed from my spree of forgetfulness, it should be relatively close to actual numbers. Whooops.

Marn and Shim Businesses: After spelunking through old threads in anticipation of the Marn Timeline project, several more neat things were found and added. Also some adjustments of Tiger's Crossing to update it and adjust it to the character Julius.

LOLFAIL totally forgot about Death.

Death is a community npc who is to be used for death posts within any thread where a npc dies. So, say a npc gets killed in a thread. You could write up a death post for that npc, post it into the thread, and then have a moderator change the account to the Death account.

Some basic guidelines:

1) The purpose of the Death account is not to hijack a thread. Write the npc's death, and that's it, you're done. Don't attempt to prolong the posts with the Death account or otherwise interact with the other characters. You are writing a death that has already happened, that's it.

2) Unless players specifically state in a plot post that they do not want any appearances by Death, any thread where a npc dies is FREE GAME.

3) If the death happened and the characters have already moved past that death (as in several posts ago or the death happened and then the scene switched), don't do the post. You missed your opportunity, and you should feel bad.


Have fun! <3
When, not if.
