MONTHLY RUNDOWN: APRIL EDITION

Thanks, everyone, for the great participation in the resurrection vote and the event itself! March was a bit of a break from sometimes painful and traumatizing events we've had in the past - hopefully it gave your characters a chance to chill out and recover in preparation for a somewhat more upsetting April.

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 haven't done so yet! Characters accepted in March do not require AC proofs, but we do require a check-in on the post!

APRIL PART 1: A DELIGHTFUL ADDITION
Delight's resurrection party stretches into the first few days of the month, ending on April 3rd. As everyone who made bad choices recovers from their hangover, the residents of Hadriel will find a few things have changed in the city. As another welcome gift, Delight will use the collected power from all that partying to restore another spire and create new housing, giving people a bit more room to spread out in! You can view details about Delight's new neighborhood on the housing page, or check out these awesome layouts. Anyone who wants to claim a house before the Door opens again will have a few days to do it! And, of course, Delight's bar is now a permanent fixture. Sometimes the goddess herself can even be found there, serving drinks and bringing smiles to people's faces. ETA: Also, as of the end of Delight's event, all maps of the caves surrounding the city are no longer accurate! Sorry, explorers.

Not too long after that, on April 10th, the next wave of arrivals will appear in the colosseum. Alongside them will be mimics, from... well, basically every video game in existence. These monsters look like treasure chests, but when any brave soul attempts to open them or gets too close, they reveal their true monstrous form. They'll happily chow down on an unsuspecting treasure hunter's arm or leg, and while they aren't terribly strong, they're definitely surprising. They can also move faster than would be expected, so be careful! But hey, who knows, some of them might actually have treasure inside. Totally worth the possible death.

APRIL PART 2: ASSASSIN
As the month wears on, Rage will decide that she needs a little power boost of her own - or hey, maybe she's just bored. Starting April 15th, she'll be making things a little more exciting (and dangerous) for everyone by hosting a slightly modified game of Assassin - only, of course, one of the modifications involves actual death.

Everyone Rage drags into her game will be assigned a target at random. They won't know who it is at first - in fact, they won't even know anything is going on at all until they see the target they've been given. Then they'll feel a wave of anger and hatred, sharp and strong and directed only at the person Rage has chosen for them. Whoever your target is, you'll have a deep desire to get them out of your life - and everyone's - permanently.

This anger isn't uncontrollable, unless you're already inclined to uncontrollable rage. It can be resisted, it can be suppressed, people will be able to plan and think and strategize rather than attempting a beatdown instantly. The moment your target is dead, the anger will disappear - or, if you manage to make it that long, it'll end on April 23rd, when Rage has had enough entertainment.

This event will be opt-out, so please comment here if you would like your character to be unaffected. Additionally, while we greatly encourage people to leave their target up to chance (and RNG), we will allow people to pick specific targets if they really want to and if both players agree on it. Comment here and let us know who your target is if you'd like to do that! Players have until April 12th to either opt out or pick a target, and everyone who hasn't done either will be assigned a target at random.

A plotting post with a list of assigned targets will be posted before the event starts, to give people plenty of time to plan. Just remember that while you will have a target, someone will also have you. So enjoy your attempted murder, and don't forget to watch your back!

Would the anger be irrational (ie. rooted in no real basis just sudden spikes of anger) or would it alter some things mentally to seem rational? For example, a group of friends get led on a lot of adventures getting twisted to seem like a group of friends being constantly led into danger therefore the leader is a threat for always taking them into danger ( how obvious is my example? )

Once the anger hits, does it persist even if the character's target is not in sight? If it persists, does it stick around as violent rage or a quieter "I'm gonna kill this fucker just you wait" type of deal?

So is all Delight giving us munchkins alcohol, or are more questionable substances available?

Amos here might not do the harder drugs, but he's more than passing fond of a little ecstasy...and ready and willing to introduce others to the fun of alternative drugs. :|

....right, will I need to write that out or can we handwave that Amos found Delight and asked her for some MDMA?

A certain delicate nerd snowflake probably wouldn't do so well with this event, so I'm gonna opt him out. He'll still be available for dealing with event stuff, just not for the assassin/target matching up!

Going to opt-out Nick! I'm down for him being a target if anyone wants him, if that's a thing that can happen.
synthedick: (♥ confidence man)

[personal profile] synthedick 2016-04-05 07:18 pm (UTC)(link)
I had a feeling that might be the case, but no worries! Figured I'd mention it, juuuuuuust in case it wasn't.

Opting Mitsuhide out, this would be a bit too much of a baptism by fire for such a gentle heart. 8')

I've talked it out with the player and I'd love for York to be assigned Wash ([personal profile] blameful) as his target!
ampliat: (oo1)

if Blue could get Gansey ([personal profile] quaerit) as a target, please? We've discussed it, and randomizing who targets her/who he targets is good. Just Blue going after that hipster pls

thank you!
