Announcements / Site Update #05
« on: September 14, 2018, 08:30:28 PM »

This is a follow-up from Site Update #04 and, once again, its purpose is to report on important changes and outline developments that have taken place within the community, as well as shine the spotlight on you lovely members!



IMPORTANT NEWS

‹ Assault on Utopia ›

The Assault on Utopia is still ongoing!  Although there is no conclusive end in sight, the event will not run indefinitely, so we would encourage everyone to post in the respective threads whenever possible.  In order to keep the storylines moving forward, the posting orders do not need to be maintained, and participants are instead invited to post whenever time and muse permits.

‹ Staff ›

I’m delighted to report that Guardsman93 has joined our staff team as a moderator, and that Webs is now an administrator!  They are both friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic, so please don’t hesitate to approach either of them if you have any questions or suggestions. <3

‹ Prefixes and Tags ›

We have introduced a prefix modification, that allows threads in certain boards (namely the applications, events and in character boards) to be marked as ‘Open’, ‘Complete’, ‘WIP’ or ‘Event’.  Tags are also fully functional, and now appear listed at the bottom of threads.  These can be used to add trigger warnings as well as tag other members and/or their character(s).

‹ Canon Limit Increase ›

As a result of this poll, our canon character limit has increased from three to four.

Webs has proved a devoted member and moderator alike so I’m sure you’ll agree they’ll make for a capable and approachable administrator. <3

Announcements / Assault on Utopia: Reminder
« on: August 28, 2018, 03:45:56 PM »

This is just a gentle reminder that the Assault on Utopia arc is still ongoing!  Although there is no conclusive end in sight, the event will not run indefinitely, so we would encourage everyone to post in the respective threads whenever possible.  In order to keep the storylines moving forward, the posting orders do not need to be maintained, and participants are instead invited to post whenever time and muse permits.

On another note, we will be running a roll call at the beginning of September.  An announcement will be posted in the tagbox and on Discord, as usual, so keep your eyes peeled and be ready to check in. :)

Announcements / Canon Limit Increase?
« on: May 28, 2018, 10:31:05 AM »

The staff have been discussing the possibility of increasing the canon limit from three to four characters per player, and we figure the best way to decide is to ask you lovelies!  An increase means we could see more canons in play, but as cast sizes grow it's possible individual characters might be a little less active. 

Whatever your feeling, please place your vote now - the poll will run until the 4th of June!

Announcements / Site Update #04
« on: March 14, 2018, 03:19:34 AM »

This is a follow-up from Site Update #03 and, once again, its purpose is to report on important changes and outline developments that have taken place within the community, as well as shine the spotlight on you lovely members!



IMPORTANT NEWS

‹ Assault on Utopia ›

Assault on Utopia is well under way and its aftermath will be shaped by the actions and decisions of the characters involved.  Once the event draws to its close, Season 4 will be launched and the third year cadets will be ranked.  More information on graduation will follow in due course.

‹ Staff ›

I’m delighted to report that the wonderful, enthusiastic and creative Draco has joined our staff team as a moderator! <3

‹ Ask the Staff ›

Courtesy of Draco, we have an Ask the Staff thread to help with board maintenance.  If you need a topic moved or archived - or if you have a quick, non-personal question to ask - feel free to post in there so staff can assist.

‹ Training Roles ›

‘Mechanics and Engineering’ is now one of the subjects that cadets will study during their training and, as such, there is a corresponding instructor position available.  Feel free to check out the complete list of Training Corps Instructor Roles.

‹ New Boards ›

Training Corps Barracks & Grounds in Wall Rose has drawn together many of the cadets’ threads.  Out of character, you will find a shiny new Graphics & Fan Works board, as well as Character Development and Worldbuilding boards.

‹ New Membergroup ›

You may have already noticed that we have introduced a Deceased membergroup.  All characters who die in play will be moved to this category, and listed in this thread along with their date of death.  Deceased characters will still be able to post however, allowing them to continue creating threads set in the past.

‹ Discord ›

Two bots have been introduced to our Discord: Tatsumaki and RPBot.  We also have a tagbox channel, as suggested by SilverWings.

Chat, Games & Banter / Prompt Game!
« on: February 24, 2018, 11:52:20 PM »
Okay, so the purpose of this little game is to inspire development and generally allow us to get to know one another's characters - as well as our own - a little better. ^_^

Basically, you respond to the prompt in the post above with how/why it relates to one of your characters (or, alternatively, with a headcanon or drabble) then finish off by providing a new prompt for the next person.  The prompt itself can be vague or specific, from a concept to a tangible thing to an emotion or a personality trait.

Sound good?  Good.  I'll start:

Chat, Games & Banter / Character Alignments! ⚔
« on: February 19, 2018, 11:12:05 PM »
As a DnDer, it was only a matter of time before this thread appeared... XD 

It's quite simple, share what alignment you believe your cast to have!  Not all of my characters are accounted for yet, but here are some of my li'l goody two-shoes:


If you're not familiar with alignments, you can find more information on them here!

Chat, Games & Banter / Character Voices!
« on: February 04, 2018, 02:16:51 PM »
It recently occurred to me that just because an OC has a particular face claim it doesn't mean they actually sound like that character.  So this is just a bit of fun, to share with everyone your charrie's voice as you hear it, and to share some related headcanons if you so please!  Canons are welcome too, should you fancy showing off their dulcet tones - or maybe you have a preference between their Japanese and English voice actors. ;)

I'mma come back with others in due course but, for now, just to get the thread started, here are my lovely canon boys:

♢  ELD JINN | Related headcanon:  Eld doesn't much like his voice.  To his ears, it sounds nasally, like he's always on the verge of a cold.  He is musically inclined, and as a boy he sang on street corners for coin, but once he joined the Survey Corps his songs are seldom heard.  Eld also has a tendency to speak quietly, born of a childhood spent trying to go unnoticed.  He calls his friends and colleagues by pet names and other terms of endearment.

♢  IAN DIETRICH | Related headcanon:  Smoking has roughened the edges of Ian's voice.  He reads a lot, which shows in his diction, and helps disguise his lowly roots.  Over the years, he has tired to reduce the amount of swear words he drops into conversation, as well as attempted to iron out some of his impoverished Krolva accent.  He uses a lot of colloquialisms, some of which are off and specific to his home district, and isn't afraid to raise his voice.

♢  MARCO BOTT | Related headcanon:  Marco thinks before he speaks, choosing his words carefully, which gives his sentences a measured pace.  His voice will deepen a little more after graduating, levelling out into his adult cadence.  As of the present day, he harbours an undiscovered flare for dirty talk.
