So, fellows, I'm not sure if that dear chap that calls himself our alpha has informed any of you, but he's passed a birthday while out gallivanting about with dragons and that lot. I think it's a fine excuse for a celebration, and it's only proper we should organize it.

Sweets are a must, but no processed sugars. Entertainment, drinks, we shall need a guest list of course. Any ideas, what?
awondrousplace: (inventor)
Hello, everyone!

I have been wondering lately how many writers or aspiring writers we have among our number, and if anyone would be interested in forming a writing society for Travelers.

Anyone and everyone would be welcome, of course, no matter your skill level. I am absolutely certain that those of us with more experience in the matter would certainly help those with less experience.

So, please let me know if this is something you would be interested in. Space, food and drink, as well as pens, ink, and paper will be provided, of course.

Anybody ever made a wall out of liminal goo before?

[This is apparently a live feed, from the inside of something like a mecha cockpit. There's a targeting reticule in soft blue, marked "WEAPONS: SAFETY ON," and a few subsystems with diagnostics labeled by name - ZERO and KHKU and ALRA are the active ones.

This is under a murky brown sea - the temperature reading has it as a comfortable 100 degrees Farenheit.

The reason this is getting livestreamed becomes apparent when a merlion enters view. The livestreamer focuses on that, waving hello with a blue glowing gauntlet. The merlion looks over, then starts to lazily swim away. The streamer just keeps watching it - the ripples of its movements, the irridescence of it's red and gold fur.]

It has... come to my attention that my Overlay, while... under the influence of that foul thing... inflicted several Travellers with a particular form of madness that I am all too familiar with.

Repeat it in red! 'This is a major Higurashi spoiler!' )

[Drizzt's mind suddenly and without warning rolls forth, his anger slamming into the network, his thoughts barely coherent as the Hunter fights for control.]

My parents are gone. I must bring them back. One of you must know. Tell me now!

[Never before in Synodiporia has Drizzt Do'Urden been so fully enraged, filled with anger that is so much easier to feel than the agonizing pain of losing his father after they had truly become father and son. In his anger, he unhelpfully does not state where he is. Only some that know him well might figure it out.]

A day or two into Lotus Mingle

[Kinji sounds... less himself than usual. There's a distinct lack of energy to his words, the very strong impression of his face being buried in his hands.]

If anyone who got sent off t'Walkabout wants t'know what happened durin' Harrogate, I came back with a whole heap a' my overlay's footage. Still gotta go over an' edit it, but I got the whole final battle, fer the most part, an' a pretty decent chunk a' the rest a' the month. So long as y'all don't mind it bein' filtered through me. [because he knows how many people he actively annoys just by existing]

Anyone want out a' that footage, lemme know an' I'll fix that. Alcuin, I'm gonna go an' ask that I get t'keep all the footage we got durin' yer interview, but if y'all don't want it hangin' round, then by all means lemme know. Anyone wanna help me add t'this, make a full account a' what went down an' not just Kris's, gimme a shout. Anythin' I ain't got footage for, I got memories I plan on uploadin' too - gonna leave everythin' in the library when I'm done.

[Not long after the return to Liminal, in a timeframe better measured in minutes than anything else, Kitty starts broadcasting. It's quiet at first but quickly gets louder as she's clearly working herself into a fit, dropping any ability to filter from the network as she goes.]






(To those who'd actionspam at her instead of responding on the network, she's just standing rooted to the spot where she arrived, staring at a moose-sized dragon opposite of her, who seems to be rather unsure of how to help her, considering that she dodges every time the dragon tries to get closer, without ever moving away further. Her whole body is tense, her fingers curled, and those who can see through masks will notice that her whole body language resembles that of a thoroughly spooked cat.)]

Asking The Real Questions

Did anyone keep the ability to build limbs from our trip to Nova Venezia, or otherwise know how to build them with the same level of articulation.

Second of all, is there any specific food anyone wants? I will be hosting something besides hot chocolate and marshmallow flowers as soon as I can manage to get enough supplies made for a get together.


We did good, and a party is well deserved I think.

August/September SotG recap

Sep. 15th, 2017 11:48 pm[personal profile] powersthatbe posting in [community profile] synodiporia_ooc
Hearing no further discussion, there will be no Walkabout opposite Night Falls on Yensid. We’ll do our best to make sure each month has engaging Liminal Spaces pre- and post-Jaunt so that if someone can’t connect to the plot they can still make AC!

Discussion is split on whether 10 or 8 days is preferred - we’re going to continue doing some Jaunts with each until we develop a clearer notion if one works more reliably than the other, or if they’re both simply appropriate for different kinds of Jaunt.

Harrogate was a more infodump-heavy Jaunt simply because of its nature; the original 8-day drafts looked just as huge. But we are aware of that as a concern, moving forward!

While we definitely understand the issue of mingles near the end of the AC period producing late or erratic comment threads, so far every solution we have seen discussed has the potential for the same problems - we’ll keep thinking about and discussing this, and maybe try an idea here or there, but generally we feel that breaking the regular schedule of mingles when not strictly necessary has not worked out well in the past.

With no discussion, we’re going to continue working on ideas for next month!

While discussion on what should go into an IC intro is ongoing, the one thing that was made very clear is that the information needs to be available OOCly, so everyone knows what to assume their characters have heard in their first couple of days in Liminal Space. Once we have that sorted, we can easily add a link to the IC intro page.

In general jaunt-running news, it was suggested that we a) do any ‘I am a newbie and need help plotting’ setup separately from the main Plotting post and b) keep all jaunt questions under the initial Questions header rather than scattering them across the summary posts, so that plotting is easier to track and questions don’t get lost. We’ll give this method a try with the upcoming jaunt and see how it goes.

Starting with this upcoming app round, we’ll do Conversation Spaces after, not before, the intro mingle. The votes were very clear on this as the best option. We’ll continue to work on ways to sustain or hasten these threads so they reach a satisfactory conclusion - we know we’re not there yet.

We’re going to take the player suggestion to tag jaunt intro and summary posts with the jaunt names, so that they’re easier to find later. To avoid confusing the jaunt tags with Important Mod Announcement tags or general-use tags, they will be formatted ~[jaunt name]. Pardon our dust while we get this set up!

Also, to cut down on confusion regarding time zones and Daylight Savings, we’re going to include a reference to GMT on AC posts and the app box, so there’s a consistent time reference.
