Hey guys, Laena here! As everyone knows, we've been asking for volunteers to help fill and replace members of the mod team in part to prepare my eventual leaving around September/October. Good news we have our final member! So to make everything official, I'm posting all of the new members and positions, including the ones already mentioned earlier.

On the Arehtei team, we have Callie as our new Daimonia! She had her first crash course into NPCing in the log between Daimonia and Elios, but she's game and has fit right in with the crew.

On the Mod team, we have Monica and now Slip on board to help Ryn and Ryoko! Some may remember that Slip helped in creating the Emotion Tracker surveys, and she'll be handling more of the technical heavy things along with the usual duties. Monica has also already been a big help for us and both are ready to go to work. Which is great for me since now I can just kick back and relax—kidding.

In all seriousness, looks like we have some good hands on deck, so everyone thank them for volunteering and let's all continue to work together to keep this game great! Because remember, it's not just the mod team, but also the players that have made this overly emotional game to the beastly child that it is now.

Plot updates will be posted in the June Mod Announcement, so stay tuned for those!

Hello everyone! Every activity check will run throughout the last 7 days of every month, coinciding with the opening of Reserves.

While you're going through your activity, don't forget to use the survey on the Emotion Tracker if you find any particularly emotional threads!

All proofs must fall within May 1 through May 31. The deadline is Wednesday, May 31, 11:59PM CDT.

You can choose one of the following options:

  1. 1 entry + 7 comments.
  2. At least two threads totaling 10 comments.

Here are some clarifications:

  • You can use multiple threads for each option.
  • You count your tag comment, not the other character's (so 7-10 comments made by you).
  • Threads must be at least 2 comments long. No 1 comment submissions!
  • You cannot use threads made within your own entry for either option. All threads must be made somewhere else.

    • Exception: You can use multiple threads made within event/mingle entries without restriction.

  • Your top level comments in event/mingling logs are considered as one giant thread. Threads made in reply to other top levels are considered as different threads.
  • Test Drive threads are not currently usable for activity.
  • Ideally, all proofs must begin within the month to count. However, if necessary we'll accept threads that started within the last seven days of the previous month so long as the majority of tags occur within the current month.
  • All entries and threads that START during the last three days of the month will not count for this month's AC.

    • Exception: Any events that are held during this timeframe are excluded and threads started during these events can be counted.

Anyone who is on Hiatus for more than three weeks is exempt. Do not try to use the hiatus as a way to bypass the Activity Check—we will notice! If you were on hiatus for at least two weeks of the month, you only need to provide half of the amount of proofs.

The list of those who earned a free pass during last December's AC can be viewed here.

If you do not have all of the requirements, you can get a strike if you at least have some proof of activity. This means you will have to completely pass the following Activity Check to clear it, or be forced to drop. Thus you can fail once and then pass the next round to have a clean slate again. However, you must have some proof of activity to qualify for a strike.

The following journals have a strike and must complete this month's activity check to pass:

[personal profile] edealistical
[personal profile] foreverhalone
[personal profile] forsaken_taboo
[personal profile] helpsthemedicinegodown
[personal profile] nyantomforce
[personal profile] untiltheend
[personal profile] zephlyrt

Here are some copy/paste forms that you can use:

1 entry + 7 comments 10 comments

NEW PLAYERS/CHARACTERS: If you were accepted during the month of the activity check, you only need to give one link for this time only. If you have the full requirements, then go ahead and use the above form. Otherwise, use the following:

If you have any questions about any of this, feel free to contact us.

Hello everyone!

Jax here! So, as stated in the joint post between Red and Usagi, something is rotten in the state of Denmark Philea. So what does that mean?

Well, it’s time for a special mission!

Red, Usagi, and a group of 10 others are going to be going back to Philea where Elios is hiding out to try and break him out of this slump and deal with the encroaching ice. The main point is to try and talk to Elios to convince him and to also deal with the ice. HOWEVER: Regardless of the success or failure of the mission, this is not going to be the end-all-be-all for Elios, this is more of a player-run attempt to make headway with his plot. Regardless of the result of this mission, we have been informed that whatever happens will affect the direction of the rest of the plot and that everyone will have the opportunity to be involved with later events.

The Quick Facts of the plot )

Hello Empatheias! Just making a quick post to say that I'm going into a-- mini hiatus? Slowatus? This week is Comicon so I'll be gone most of the day from Wednesday to Sunday (reason why Bianca won't be going to the latest adventure). So tags will be scarce! Still, if you need me for anything, pm/pp me! Those I can always get to. o7
