Monthly Rundown: July Edition

June had a little break from plot and a little more focus on trauma, so hopefully everyone had some fun! As summer really kicks into gear, we'll be throwing a bit more plot your way - though there should be things to do even for plot-averse characters!

As always, if you ever have any suggestions or feedback you'd like to offer us mods, remember you can always drop us a line here! Also, please remember to hit up the Current AC post if you have AC for the month! Characters accepted in June do not require AC proofs, but we do require a check-in on the post!

JULY PART 1: A MESSAGE FROM BEYOND
Delight and Rage are off on their scouting trip, the other gods have gotten back to the usual friendly torture of Hadriel's inhabitants, and everything seems to be running smoothly. More or less. But don't get too comfortable - on July 2nd, all the inhabitants of Hadriel will receive a message on the network from an NPC. So keep an eye out for that!

Then, on July 10th, our new arrivals appear as the Door surges once more. Along with them comes a good handful of tracker jackers, genetically engineered wasps from the Hunger Games series, suggested by Amanda.

Tracker jackers are similar in appearance to normal wasps, except bigger and golden. They've been altered so that their painful stings induce terrifying hallucinations that can be enough to drive people mad, and they'll attack anyone who approaches their nest. So that's cool! Then, on July 12th, we will have our bimonthly CR meme.

JULY PART 2: STEPFORD SUMMER
Tranquility and Confusion have teamed up to get a bit more power for themselves - after all, Love and Sorrow just had a turn, right? These two working together can really mess with people's minds, though, and that's what they're going to do. It'll be a little break from the cave! So what if it's just a little... off?

Starting July 16th, everyone in Hadriel will find themselves in a friendly, homey, and very cheerful small town. The sun shines bright above in the blue sky, the houses all have picket fences - oh, and you're pretty sure you've lived there all your life. Hadriel? What's that? No, this is the happy town of Pleasant Valley, where everyone knows their neighbor.

Each character wakes up believing they've spent their whole lives in this town. You're usually an overpowered superhero type? Well, now you're a small-town policeman, or a grocer's assistant, or the town librarian. If you're under 18, your only job is to go to school, like a good student! Your family wants you to become a responsible adult, after all.

Oh, right. Your family. If you didn't have one before, you sure do now. It might be made up of friends, enemies, or strangers from Hadriel - but it also might be made of perfectly loving and supportive NPCs. Whoever they are, you definitely believe that they're your family through and through!

Unless you don't. Some people might wake up on that first day knowing something is off. Others might slowly realize that their memories don't quite match up, or that they remember being somewhere completely different - a cave city, maybe? As the days go on, the illusion will grow thinner, and more and more people will realize something is wrong. On July 25th, Tranquility and Confusion have had their fun, and everything will go back to normal.

There will be a more comprehensive OOC planning post closer to the start of the event, so please save your questions for that! And finally, on July 29th, there will be another NPC post, following up on the one from the beginning of the month. Keep an eye on that network.

OKAY I'll leave my more complicated questions for later but REAL QUICK: for the Stepford Summer event, is it going to be forced humanization? Or is it just totally normal that there's nonhuman people in this space?

If the character is human with powers, will the powers be suppressed or will it just be normal to have people with powers in town?
