Hi all! I went on hiatus a couple days ago but I only just realised now that I don't have everyone I'm currently threading with on plurk. I may not start anything new until the end of October, but I will be very slowly tagging the current threads I have now. Sorry for the slowness, things are just rather stressful right now!

This affects Weiss and Rinoa. Thank you for your understanding!

Hey, guys. Megu here. I haven't been feeling well for the past couple of days due to a nasty cold and that's been affecting my playing Honey Lemon here. I've decided to bow out for now and rest up. Honey has left a couple of things that anyone is free to take: a couple of outfits, fabrics, sewing machine, dress dummy, a portable lightning rod she uses to redirect the lightning she produces from Dunamis, a powerbank she invented to charge her electronics, and her multiverse notes she used for her lecture (which included a few pages of her figuring out if it were possible to create a breach into Verens). Hopefully, I will be well enough to app here again with this girl or someone else.

Thank you for letting me play with you guys. It was a blast. Bye!

TEST DRIVE: November

Welcome to [community profile] empatheias' test drive meme. This test drive is to help interested players test their characters in the game's environment. We've included a few prompts that incorporate specific elements of the game, though you'll find all of them have a lot of leeway for players to get as creative as necessary. Before diving in, here are a few things we'd like to remind everyone about the game in general:

  • Date reminders. Reserves open Wednesday, October 25 and Applications (Canon | OC) open a week later on November 1st. Apps will only be open for four days!

  • OC Reminder! Just a quick reminder that original characters are allowed. Those interested can also use the test drive. OCs do not need to be reserved.

  • Emotions are key! Empatheias' premise focuses on how anyone's emotions can affect their environment, be it big or small. While not every emotion will cause a reaction, significant ones definitely will. How much effect a character will have will ultimately be up to you, the player. Also, while we're giving a lot of leeway for the test drive, keep in mind that there will be some limits in the actual game.

  • Everyone has an amulet. All characters have a unique amulet that is specialized for them. It will contain all of their emotion drops and it serves as the network device. Remember, communication is telepathic. Otherwise, it works basically the same.

  • Assume the character is already in the game. Because "OMG WHERE AM I IS THIS REAL LIFE" threads aren't going to be very helpful in this test drive! Plus, those are going to happen in-game, anyway. So to make things easier, just assume that they've been around at least a week or so. Still learning the ropes, but not a complete "first day" experience.

  • First or third person allowed. Your threads can be in either first or third, but we'd advise being flexible about it. Remember, these threads can also be used in your application for samples! Reminder: We only require one sample and it can be done in either format. We have also made a change to our sample requirements, so look over the Applications page!

  • Transfer to in-game. If accepted, you can assume threads made on the Test Drive happen in-game if the scenario can reasonably fit. These threads do not count toward AC.

Now with that out of the way, here are some prompts you guys can work from!

Prompts )

For your threads, put the Character Name and the Canon in the subject line to help readily identify them. You're also welcome to use more than one prompt for respondents to choose from. If you have any questions or want to brush up on the game information, refer to the Game Information entry. Otherwise, tag around and have fun!
