Just putting up a notice to folks not on my plurk list that I'll be dropping all Shopping Frenzy threads! That bout of illness really put me behind, unfortunately, so I need to let a bunch of older stuff go. If there's anything you want to handwave or plot out, feel free to drop me a line here, in PM, or PP me at mimarin on Plurk!

I really apologize for the slowness and inconvenience and hope to make things up to folks in the future!

This is just a heads up, but I'm going on hiatus for the rest of the month for mental health reasons and while I may manage a tag or two here or there, a lot of threads are getting dropped. I don't think I had too many plans here, at least, but all the same

This affects Leo and Fushimi.

This is a regrettable announcement for me to make, but I will have to drop Yukine.
I have made a lot of fantastic CR with him, and I'm so happy to have met you all!

And it's not all bad, because thanks to him being a Noragami character in a Noragami game, he will not be gone!

On IC September 5 (ooc October 17, 18, 19), Yukine will be telling a handful of his frequent CR that he's suddenly off to be doing something together with his god Yato. (He's not happy about that at all yes he is) And not being someone to disappear without a word like Yato he'll give some quick good byes. But from IC September 6th onward, Yukine will not be reachable.

While I'm happy to have his brief farewells be handwaved, if anyone would like to play it out or have any other played out CR with Yukine before he leaves, please let me know in this comment!

I will remain with the game as a mod, as well as playing the NPC god Suijin.

Truly, thank you so much for all the fun that I was able to have with Yukine here, and I look forward to still seeing you around in the future!

TEST DRIVE # 21



Whether you're trying to figure out how your character would fare in this setting, trying to get some samples together, or just dipping your toes in the water, you've come to the right place! The Test Drive is here to make your life easy by letting you see what the game is like without actually joining it first. So here is how it works:


1: Post a starter with your character, including whether they are a god or shinki in the subject line.
2: Act like your character is established enough in the setting to allow your thread to go places.
3: Take on any god/shinki of your choosing, as long as they're not already in the game!
4: Comment around to the other people on the meme.
5: Have lots of fun!

To get you started, here are some ideas for thread-starters! Feel free to come up with your own ideas if these don't strike your fancy, though.



Weird Wands


Kids love the new "magic wand" souvenirs from the Wizard's Wonderland cinema & party venue! They sparkle, they swish, they look just like real magic wizard's wands... actually, are these just souvenirs? They seem to be doing real magic! Unappetizing school lunches are turning into delicious cakes, a pack of stray dogs ate everybody's homework, and other elementary-school wishes are coming true all over the place. Be the mean grown-up and confiscate some wands, or just join in the fun.

Xistential cris-X


What is the meaning of life, anyway? That's what this year's crop of incoming freshmen at Tokyo University really want to know. Careful crossing the campus: tormented sighs, heavy philosophy tomes, theological questions and earnest discussions abound. Help these kids lighten up and enjoy their college experience! Or take advantage and start preaching. With all this existential angst around, you could definitely score some new followers.

Yip Yap


The dogs in a certain neighborhood go crazy every time the clock strikes one A.M. and the poor residents haven't had a good night's sleep in weeks. What's got those pooches so peeved? Hunt down the ayakashi prowling their streets, and let those hard-working guard dogs and their sleepy owners go back to getting some Z's.

Zippy Zinc Oxide


There is a rash of incidents going around, literally. A large number of babies are suffering from yeast infection diaper rash, and the distress level of the parents is hitting the roof. All that distress might be attractive to ayakashi too, so stock up on zinc oxide, change lots of diapers, soothe the babies, and restore peace to the land.

Apartment Apples


A follower has entered an interior decoration contest to deck out an apartment in a complete and total apple theme. And they are dead set determined to win this thing. Everything from an apple teapot to apple socks to act as props in the dresser, your follower needs to completely furnish this place. Even though it's just a 1DK, it's sure starting to feel like a huge task to buy enough to decorate it. Lend a hand with the shopping and decorating, and try to hold back on shooting down your follower's design dreams?




If you're uncertain about anything, feel free to check out the Premise, Rules, and FAQ posts. And don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have on the FAQ!

trashcrash: (yeah dont think thats how it works)
[personal profile] trashcrash
Aaaa I meant to do this much sooner, like... 3 weeks sooner when I realized time'd continue to be an issue, but... welp. I didn't. And I definitely suck for that 8'I

So, yeah, I hate to do this so soon after joining and after meeting such wonderful people auidesrdg, but I'll be dropping Yosuke and with that, the game! ;; The game and all the players I got to tag with were amazing, but after my vacation and the consequent flu, I got some other medical issues that just... threw my schedule off balance. I don't think I've the time needed to stay up to date with a game, so-! Here's me bowing out.

Maybe I'll return one day if my schedule clears up and everything, but for now, thanks for everything and keep having fun guys <3

We have a quick announcement about tag counts for this month. We use comment tracking in order to compile tag counts for experience and follower gains for our players, and unfortunately, due to an issue at the beginning of the month, we've lost a little over two weeks' worth of data for the [community profile] thenearshore community's September comments. This does not affect [community profile] thefarshore comments, which will be counted as normal.

In order to make sure no one's experience/follower gains are unfairly penalized because of this, we'll be using the following process to do tag counts for this month.

By default, the formula for your total this month will be:

The PARTIAL log tag numbers that we have (covering about 1½ weeks of September) + either your AUGUST log total OR 50 log tags, whichever is greater.

In other words, if the number of log tags you did last month was less than 50, your September tag count will be (50 + the partial September numbers.) This includes new characters: the gap was towards the beginning of the month, so new characters have only lost about half a week's worth of tag totals.

If the number of log tags you did last month was greater than 50, your September tag count will be (August total log tags + the partial September numbers.)

If you have links for your own tags this month and you want an exact count for your September numbers, please comment to this post linking all threads on the [community profile] thenearshore community that you tagged this month, and we will do the tag count from your links. This should include threads that began before September but that you were backtagging during the month.

For the manual count option, please reply to this post before midnight October 3rd.


We apologize for the inconvenience!

October Announcements


Here we are again, bringing you the news of Near and Far Shore events for the month of October!



Happenings


The Near Shore
    School is back in session, the last festivals are coming to an end, and it's extra humid out. When will fall come and bring cooler weather?!
    • Stress is building up around schools again -- keep a vigilant eye out for ayakashi that might be following schoolchildren.

    • Check out the exciting new 100 Soft ice cream trucks showing up around the parks of Tokyo! 100 different soft-serve flavors in your choice of cup, regular cone, or chocolate-dipped cone.

    • A few newspapers have picked up the story of a mysterious department store fire. The newly opened Yamada Department Store, which had been plagued with challenges towards the end of its construction, caught fire sometime during the night of August 24th. Due to the late hour, the only injury suffered was minor smoke inhalation by one night guardsman, but the building was completely gutted. Local authorities have not ruled out arson.



The Far Shore
    Although the storms are staying well away, the cloying humidity of the Near Shore's late summer is even extending to the Heavens. These are long, lazy, hot days!
    • Towards the south side of the Western district, an unusual sight has appeared in the mountains: one of them is erupting! Lazy streams of lava are snaking down its sides, all the snow at its summit has melted, and there's a taste of sulfur and ash in the air. It's well away from any temples, new or old, but it makes an interesting sight, at least until the eruption is over again....

    • Koi in the many canals and rivers around the Heavens have started a new game of splashing anyone who's crossing a low bridge or sitting by the riverside. Are those fish laughing?!

    • The hot weather is making tempers short across the Heavens. Somehow, the chime of those wind bells seems to bring calm, but away from the bells -- or for gods and shinki who've taken them down for some peace and quiet -- it may seem easier than usual to pick a fight.



Noteworthy Ayakashi
    Tempers are just as short on the Near Shore as they are in the Heavens, and ayakashi are enjoying all the conflict.
    • A spider ayakashi is lurking under pedestrian bridges and sending one of its baby spider ayakashi off with every passersby. People with a baby spider ayakashi attached to them slowly grow more and more irritable, hungry and tired as it feeds on their energy. Rescue the victims and slay the mama ayakashi before the whole town grinds to a halt.

    • Tiny firefly ayakashi are luring late-night travelers off the beaten path... and into rivers,
      over cliffs and down dangerous gorges! Help the people lost in the woods back to civilization and get rid of the ayakashi before they can claim more victims.


Weather
    Here you can see the weather starting on September 1.


Event


Heavenly Job Fair

    What do you do when one of your followers asks for something you don't know how to do? The older gods often ask each other for help if they receive a prayer they don't have the right skills for, such as a god of studying asking a god of combat to help with ayakashi fights. In order to help the new gods settle into Heavenly society, a two-day prayer exchange fair will be held outside the Meeting Hall. Gods and shinki alike can bring prayers they can't answer, answer the prayers they can, and let the Heavens know what they can do.
    • IC Date: August 30 - 31
    • If you have any questions, feel free to reply to the comment marked 'Event' on this post.
    • To participate in the event, you will just need to comment to the event log after it goes up on October 1 at 7PM EST.


Past Happenings in the Heavens


Major Events

July AnnouncementsAugust AnnouncementsSeptember Announcements

  • Last month on August 21st, gods and shinki helped a new department store battle bad luck.
    • While investigating, some searchers discovered a mysterious, streaky-colored plastic altar in a locked basement room, with strange symbols on it that had been partially erased by a heat gun.
    • Other searchers found small charms similar to the ones appearing during the Spirits event or signs of tampering throughout the department store.
  • On August 25th, new arrivals were brought to Bishamon's temple for orientation and training.

Hello everyone, Maddy here!

Just an update that I'm dropping Shouhei Akagi. I had a really good time with him but I think it's time for him to go home.

He's left a few things behind for people he was fairly close to, just some manga and a baseball bat.

I'm still around with Niles, mind you!

Life has gotten too busy for me to tag at a regular pace these days, so I'll have to bow out for now. This affects both my characters, Jakob ([personal profile] gentilitea) and Sanada ([personal profile] goingbananas). I may or may not come back later on depending on how things pan out, but for now, consider this a goodbye and thanks for all the fun.♥

I feel badly to do this so soon after apping, and right after getting a shinki too.  But this game has been a hard fit for Snow.  I kind of knew that going in -- he's prickly and self-centered, and not exactly out to make friends.  So coming in with him rather than a stronger character, or without previous CR/canonmates was a risk.

Unfortunately, it hasn't really panned out.  I love everyone I've interacted with, but Snow White will be leaving.  Sorry again to have inconvenienced people, and sorry that I never did interact with Pidge.   Maybe in the future I'll be back with someone else.

TEST DRIVE # 20



Whether you're trying to figure out how your character would fare in this setting, trying to get some samples together, or just dipping your toes in the water, you've come to the right place! The Test Drive is here to make your life easy by letting you see what the game is like without actually joining it first. So here is how it works:


1: Post a starter with your character, including whether they are a god or shinki in the subject line.
2: Act like your character is established enough in the setting to allow your thread to go places.
3: Take on any god/shinki of your choosing, as long as they're not already in the game!
4: Comment around to the other people on the meme.
5: Have lots of fun!

To get you started, here are some ideas for thread-starters! Feel free to come up with your own ideas if these don't strike your fancy, though.



Rope bridge Rumble


An adventure park that features several scary-exciting climbs and crossings between trees using only ropes has a huge problem. The ropes are getting unexpectedly tangled up. Even worse, it sometimes happens when a customer is trying to make a crossing, tripping them up in the midst of their course! While the safety ropes have been doing their job at keeping customers uninjured, the employees are fervently praying that whatever is doing this will go away, before something worse happens.

Steady Shave


It's the height of summer, and even men that treasure their beards, mustaches and sideburns dearly are driven to get it shaved off in the name of heat reduction. Small barbershops are being overrun with customers who want it all shaved off- some even going so far as to want their head shaved bare.
Answer the barber's pleas for a couple extra hands. May they be steady.

Toil and Trouble


A performance of Macbeth is being haunted by an ayakashi causing bad luck. Props getting misplaced or needing repairs, color gels for the lights getting torn, the microphones keep kicking up feedback- The customary wish of 'break a leg' feels dangerously close to becoming real. Rescue the Scottish Play from its curse before the curtain rises!

Ubiquitous U-turns


Elementary school children go home in groups for safety. However that measure isn't helping against some children getting home very late. And none of the kids can bring themselves to say why they end up taking so many wrong turns on the way. Take up a traffic flag and your best teacher voice, and help the children find their proper way home, keeping an eye out for anything - mundane or supernatural - that might be leading the kids astray.

Violet Veranda


Cheerful violets grew unusually well this year on the college dorm veranda, to the point where the whole perimeter of the veranda is full of containers holding them. But now the flowers are nearing the end of their life, and something strange is happening to the students at the same time. As the flowers wilt and fade, so does the energy of the students living in the dorm. While it would normally be impossible to draw a connection between the two, residents of the Far Shore can see the truth- tiny ladybug-like energy-hungry ayakashi are moving from flowers to students. Take care of this however you can before the last petal falls!

Hello, TFS! We'd like to announce that the overhaul of our Locations Page, in response to suggestions brought up on the State of the Game post, is now complete.

Highlights:

  • A map of the Far Shore! Please note that this map is not to scale, as distances and landmarks in the Far Shore are known to shift and in fact are more and more likely to do so the farther one gets from the Easternmost administrative district where Amaterasu dwells. All new gods' temples appear in the western district, which is also where abandoned temples and wild, shifting landscapes are most common. See the headings for each district on the Locations page for more information! **Note: East on this map is the TOP of the map, and West is the BOTTOM.

  • The Main Office is now accepting property claim requests from new gods! What this means is that, if your god has more than 5,000 followers, you can apply for a transfer out of the Western district and into one of the main districts of the Far Shore. Property transfers do not cost followers like regains do -- they're just the Heavens' way of acknowledging the growing renown of a god. Each district has its own features and its own minimum follower count for resident deities: check out the Locations page for more information or to apply for a new address.

  • More information on the state of the Library: our new library workers have put a lot of sweat and time into correcting some of the mess left behind by the now-deceased library goblins, but unfortunately they are discovering that most of the disorder is caused by the same magic that allows copies of unique or unpublished records to appear on the library shelves. The books are still moving, appearing and disappearing on their own, so although the library looks much tidier, it's still challenging to find specific items. Characters are free to explore the library and check out random volumes, but if you want to find specific books in the library, reply to the Book Requests comment on the Locations page so that the mods can RNG your search's success.

Hi everyone! Ashka here!

I have no idea where to even begin with this. Maybe you've noticed that I've been incredibly inactive... or maybe you haven't because I've never been really active to begin with. Either way I'm dropping Yuto and, in a way, ending my rp adventure with this. We can still do psls sometime if you want haha, but I'm not planning to go back to any games. Instead I want to focus on real life, on my work, family and friends. And also on my other hobbies.

Anyway! It's been a lot of fun to play here, I've met some absolutely wonderful people thanks to this place, got a lot of fun threads and cr. So thank you everyone! And sorry for all those dropped threads. I really wish I could've threaded with all of you and give this place as much attention as it deserves!

So bye everyone! See you around... somewhere somehow xD

You're all great!
