Inspired by this meme I got tagged in from Twitter:



What would your characters have as their wallpapers on their phones? Loved ones, pretty scenery, pets, weird stuff that nobody would understand? SHARE IT HERE.


How I'm doing it: setting the home and lock screens for real on my phone and screencapping, then uploading to an image hosting site.

How to do it if you're lazy: just post the pictures :D

I know Eli hasn't been on hiatus for a full month, but I am ready to bring him back! I've been toying around in my head the idea of doing a garden party down at the community garden both as a spring party type of deal but Eli would also be raising money for his organization.



Probably not a kegger, more like wine and spring dresses.

I am thinking Thursday or maybe Monday...

If anyone wants to volunteer talent and/or food, they are welcome to be working the event. Eli is not shy about asking for donations so if your character runs a business he could've asked for sponsorship. There are several characters that volunteer with Eli at the garden and I would love them to be fretting over all the food and details right along with him.

Plotting!

Hi guys!

So tomorrow I'll be reintroducing Moira to the game, and she has a plotting post open for anyone interested, but I also wanted to make a post here because part of her plot involves my other character, Fiona Logan, and her family history. Basically, I wanted to make a post because the villain/NPC I'm introducing is pretty much open for whoever else might want to use him?

For the time being Eli, Trina, and Jack are on hiatus. I have been terrible at juggling my five characters as of late, and I need a little break. Work has been very busy and for other reasons I haven't been sleeping well so I'm often quite tired when I'm home. Now seems like a good time with the fairytale plot as I hadn't planned anything for them.

Two ways to play!

First: Do you have a character you'd love for someone to play? Maybe a relative, friend, or just an NPC that you think would be fun? Or maybe it's just a type of character that you'd like to see in the game. Think Siren Cove could benefit from a old, homeless witch that's secretly uber powerful? Tell us about them and why someone should play them!

Second: Do you have a new character you're think about playing that you'd maybe like to create some ties with before you bring them in? Maybe they're just a rough idea and you'd like some help fleshing them out or you just want to open them up for people to ask questions about.

All of that and more is okay!

HELLO SCRPG-ers!

In advance of the April Challenge being posted, we wanted to get some feedback from the community on the ideas that have been presented to us. We want to do something kinda fun and big this month since if you can believe it, it is our one-year anniversary!!!!!! PARTY!!!!

One thing we especially would like some feedback on is the timeline for this challenge. We don't want to rush you guys through if you're really are into playing out some of the ideas presented below, but we don't want to hinder anyone's current plot lines so we thought it best to just ask what you guys want to do before making it official and posting the calendar. 

We'll take comments for a couple of days and then get the timelines settled as quickly as possible so you guys can start planning. This isn't as detailed as our official challenge post, this is just to give you the basic idea of what will be happening. Some of these things can change based on what you guys tell us.

NOW ONWARD....

"SIREN COVE - A fairytale story"

Basic plot description -

Nerium with the help of some other characters will cast a spell to bring wild and untamed magic back to Siren Cove. Nerium and her ilk wish to return Siren Cove to the great magic of olde in a land unrestricted by humans.  The spell will manifest by turning the town into a fairytale world filled with magic. Think reverse Once Upon a Time - instead of a mundane town being filled with former fairytale characters, the "mundane" Siren Cove will now be a fairy tale/fantasy land. Siren Cove will be transformed into a fantasy land, with impenetrable barriers separating it from the outside world. Ideas of what the town may look like: 1) http://www.frugalfamily.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/Picture-737.jpg; 2) http://www.rosen-ducat.com/landofmakebelievemap/h28e2e528#h28e2e528. Specific places and landmarks can be planned by players to fit their plans. We are planning at the very least that there will be a "Forbidden Wood" full of centaurs and unicorns and giants and all manner of creatures; and an Atlantis type underwater kingdom for mermaid/sirens.

Consequences
The town will be transformed, both in setting and character. Players will be able to choose for their character(s) to either

1) Become a fairy tale character / fantasy trope with no memories of their true past, or
2) Retain their memories and identities and know the truth of the changed Siren Cove.
  • Everyone will be able choose which way they want to play and what type of trope to choose from.
  • All source material is up for grabs. From classic fairy tales, to Disney, to Into the Woods or Wicked, to Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings - anything that fits into the genre.
  • Witches can be good or evil.
  • Humans can be humans within a world of magic or embody another trope type from maiden in distress or knight to a Cinderella type or Peter Pan and anything in between - even another type of non-magical creature like a hobbit or a giant. 
  • Police and other civil servant workers will have the opportunity to "fight back" against Nerium and her group in order to return the town to normal. 
Timeline information
This is where we need your help the most. We are willing to let this plot play out as long as you guys want it to run. If you want more time to really delve into your source material, we are perfectly fine with that. But we also don't want to cut into current plots that are already planned and since this spell will change the fabric of the town, we don't want to leave it running too long and mess up people's plans. So we are leaving it up to you all.

We intend for the plot to culminate in a Ball at Nerium's castle - what is fairytale land without at least one ball? This is likely where the faction against the spell wins.

Additional Info
  • The heart of the spell rests in the heart of a dragon which guards Nerium's castle. Players - magic or not - will be able to plot to venture there to slay the dragon, and destroy its heart. If this is really something you're interested in, we are really open to plot decisions being made by the characters involved. 
  • There will be parts of the town that will remain unaffected by the spell. Right now, we are discussing the bowling alley remaining a magic-free zone. Characters homes that are safe-guarded with wards can remain unaffected by the spell if necessary.
  • We are also discussing the keeping the forest magical as a means of congregating for plot purposes later on. 
And that's all. We always welcome feedback and comments and things that will make things easier for you guys!

While reading through and tagging text message posts, I was reminded of my early days in RPing when journal based games were all first-person and written as though the characters were making actual blog posts.

This is an example from the first game I followed, This Is Now, a Harry Potter based game.

What I'm wondering is if there would be interest in creating a sort of bulletin board community for Siren Cove residents. It would be public-access, meaning anyone with an account and a computer could log in and see, and respond, to all entries (or we can put a "friends lock" system in place for entries to only a certain group of people, if desired.)

Thoughts?

It's time for the Annual Cabot Costume Party!



On Friday the 13th much of the town will be invited to the swanky Cabot mansion to party away any impending bad luck! The only requirement is that you wear a costume. And there's no phoning these costumes in either, they require some effort!

If you're not able to swing a respectable enough costume though, don't worry, the Cabot's have you covered. A local costume rental store has set up shop in a tent outside and the costumes are free to rent for the evening, courtesy of the Cabot's. Just... try not to get them too messy with all the free food and drink.

Music will be provided in part by Audrey Canillo's band, Tributary Delta. The party starts at 7 o'clock as all ages but by 9 PM it's adults only. If you have ID (or a really, really, really good fake) you can get alcohol.

Feel free to use this post to plan out dates, individual costumes, group costumes, or anything else. I will try and get the post up early enough that international people can tag before they head to bed.

So, in case some of you didn't notice, we have some attractive people in the game. Many of them work in Emergency Services in some way. Fire, Police, Medical, Teaching (shhhh, I'm saying it's allowed) or anything else you can think of can all be involved if you want. Even if your character works for the police/fire/etc department in some way, they're eligible to be on the calendar. And yes, I'm going to try and actually put a calendar together.

Any and all genders are encouraged to participate and the picture of their month can be in any state of dress; from swimwear to formal wear. Also, volunteers for the various areas are also welcome, it doesn't have to be their job. Characters can appear together too if you want but if their aren't images of them on the net I'll attempt to Photoshop them together.

If you'd like your character to participate, please fill out the form below!



Feel free to ask any questions!

 Because I'm kind of curious about the person behind the character(s), and their writing habits, this time a list of questions focused on you, you, and you.


1. Can you write a reply/tag/post all day every day or do you need a mood, a tune, a (special) space?
2. Can you smoothly switch between characters or do you need something to turn your mind set around? 
3. Are you sometimes completely flabbergasted about what your character is doing/how it's running away from you? If so, when was the last time?
4. Can you keep your distance from emotional stuff happening to your character(s) or do emotions definitely bleed through?

5. What do you find first, the character, its name or its face(claim)? 
6. Does the face claim influence the character you write? For example: actress A plays very whimsical parts, does that make your character quirky/quirkier?
7. Have you ever regretted a name or face claim?

8. Which of yours is your favorite character (right now)?
9. Which is your easiest-to-play character?
10. Are there character-related decisions (plot, looks, background) you really regret?

Hi, peoples. Just an FYI that I will be on semi-hiatus/slow-tagging status for the next few days. I am moving into my apartment this weekend, and I am only half-packed as of today. Once there I am not certain about internet set-up but I can't see it being more than a few days.

Either way, I have kept about five threads I think, and I will continue those as I can. Also, for modly things, get with Julia and Sarah as they have the keys to the kingdom.

Easiest way to get in touch with us is the Page A Mod form, as that shoots an email to all three of us.

Also if you see me online the next few days ask me if I am packing because I probably should be. Packing sucks.

Genevieve is on a boat, motherf*****! Genevieve recently purchased Will Cabot's boat for a dollar. Which means she needs to celebrate by having a party. Too cold you say? Not for a witch that controls the weather*! On Friday night she will be throwing a party on her new boat. The dress code is swim wear and it will be warm enough to wear it in the area surrounding the boat. The water will even be just right for swimming so long as you don't go too far away.

Everyone should consider themselves invited by either knowing Genevieve or knowing someone that knows her. The only people who have a reasonable excuse not to come are Will and Corry. So yes. Boat party. Questions? Comments? Planning?

*Doesn't Genevieve have some sort of problem controlling the weather? Isn't it supposed to be killing her? Shouldn't you do something with that? Is this going to almost kill her? Can my character find her as she's having a seizure? Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes.

Another meme that I'm directly ripping off from another game but WHATEVER, it's fine.


Comment as your characters with their biggest Siren Cove crushes. It can be people they're head over heels in love with, people they're quietly attracted to, people they'd hit so fast if there were no strings attached or no consequences to be had, people they've never talked to but would definitely be willing to get to know better, anything! Post as many or as few as you'd like and if you want to make it pretty with gifs or pictures and reasons for each crush, have at it. You can reply back in character or as yourself but know that this won't affect anything in game, it's just all in good fun! :3

ALRIGHT. 

If your character participates in the Ascension plot, they will get magical abilities for a short time, but many of them (i.e. all) will have some adverse reactions to taking this potion. The mods have spent some time brainstorm several possibilities, but we wanted to give the community a chance to add to the list. All side effects will be randomly assigned and all characters will experience different things (note: we will make sure this assignment works for everyone okay, no fear). 

Here is the current list of adverse reactions: 


Ascension
Causes magical abilities in humans and other species


Possible side effects may include:

Now it's your turn! If you want to add more possible side effects to Ascension, just comment below and we will add it to our list!
