Monthly Rundown: February Edition

Thank you guys for the awesome participation in the January events! With the cold tide of February comes the fruition of a few player plots and suggestions, as well as a combination god event!

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 January do not require AC proofs, but we do require a check-in on the post!

As the extermination event comes to a close, our resident Bruce Banner ([personal profile] zen_en_vert) will attempt to take matters into his own radioactive hands and take a big, green swing at Fear. What will essentially start as 'meet me in the pit' will ultimately end in failure, as Fear's physical form is merely a projection and can unfortunately not be physically beaten to a pulp. Furthermore, Bruce will lack the ability to immediately calm down and start a city-wide rampage!

What does this mean for you guys? Bruce will be posting a log on Monday, February 1st of the Hulk's general destruction. While he'll be keen on smashing everything and generally rampaging around Hadriel, he will still have some degree of control and will probably hold himself back from causing any fatal damage to your character. Probably.

On February 10th, our new intro log will go up to welcome all the new characters into Hadriel! And what better way to welcome them than with a big round of applause from a few evil spirits? That's right folks, the monsters of the month are wraiths, also known as the shadowy cold spirits that hang around dark places and excel in causing general torment and suffering.

A wraith is a type of vengeful spirit, though unlike the other monsters Hadriel has experienced so far, they won't outright try to kill you. Instead, their touch merely brings a chilling wave of cold that saps your energy and exhausts you- and they're experts at sneaking up on people. Furthermore, contact with a wraith brings horrible luck and causes characters to experience their next few hours in a Final Destination style- ie: everything that can fatally go wrong in their lives, will.

Maybe don't try to change any light bulbs or clean your guns for awhile.

Additionally, our very first Mod Feedback Post will go up on Friday, February 12th! We look forward to hearing your thoughts!

Unfortunately, the wraiths weren't the only spirits that were let in during the fluctuation of the Door. Thanks to a suggestion from Ami, our Chris player, the city of Hadriel will also be visited by wendigo spirits, as seen in the video game Until Dawn. The good news is, the spirit of the wendigo will only possess someone who has consumed the flesh of another human being.

The bad news is, Fear and Rage are taking over the food supply for awhile.

Starting the 14th of February (Happy Valentine's Day!), the other gods will have kindly decided to help Hope out a little and start feeding all of the needy humans here. While the containers of food won't be marked any differently, some of the meat will have something a little too familiar added to it. Characters who eat the affected meat will soon find themselves possessed by the vengeful wendigo spirits. This event will be opt-in only and we will be taking volunteers for players who want their characters to become wendigos when the ooc event post goes up.

Possession essentially entails characters slowly losing their humanity over the course of the next 12 days as their limbs grow longer and they become faster, stronger and tougher, eventually becoming blind while their hearing sharpens to an unrivaled level. The wendigo are vengeful, angry creatures, and will stop at nothing to rip apart any living thing they can get their clawed hands into.

Characters who become wendigo will likely have to be killed to return to normal, however, there may be ways to save your friends! More on that, as well as details of the actual transformation process and the volunteer sign-ups will be available on the Wendigo OOC event post!

When does wraith bad luck end? Will it end on the 28th with the event?

Hi everyone! As they said, Bruce is going to do some smashing this month- the log will be marked as open, but if you'd like to plot something specific please hit me up here on on my plurk at UndrwO! I can't wait :D

Noah would try to talk Hulk down!! And fail, but, you know. He'll try. He knows Bruce is a good guy, and while he's dead at least Noah can't truly be injured. (I also realize that somehow I managed to not have you added on plurk wtf imma do that now)

[personal profile] zen_en_vert 2016-01-27 08:26 pm (UTC)(link)
Ooh, tell me about more of his death mechanics? Is he actually incorporeal?

Yay new plurk friends!
casperdisaster: (So silent as I stare and stare)

[personal profile] casperdisaster 2016-01-27 08:46 pm (UTC)(link)
Unfortunately Noah's death mechanics are basically "Whatever the fuck the author needs him to be able to do to further the story", Noah gets no POV chapters, and when other characters ask him about how his ghostiness works he either straight up fuckin' lies about it ("Did you just read my thoughts?" "You were probably speaking aloud." HE WASN'T) or admits that he doesn't know and doesn't want to know. SO MOST OF IT I'M EXPLAINING WITH '/SPOOKY FINGERS'. (I tl;dr a bit in his permissions)

So, short version: On good days, he's exactly like a living person except he is very cold and seems sort of washed-out/faded as far as a person goes, and in spite of being a coward can't actually be physically harmed (Ronan throws him out a second floor window onto concrete, he just climbs back up the steps and acts indignant). On less good days he gets more ghostly - fades when people aren't looking at him, vanishes a lot, reenacts his death like a silent movie. On bad days he's a full on poltergeist. Totally invisible and prone to making cold spots, throwing things, and slamming doors.

The Hulk can knock him into a wall and Noah will definitely be hit and hit the wall but he'll just vanish on impact and then return to standing nearby it an eyeblink later like "Wow rude."

Beautiful! We can wing it, then! I'm glad he can't really hurt him, because Bruce would be the saddest, but maybe they can play chase a bit!

[personal profile] theresolve 2016-01-28 10:23 pm (UTC)(link)
Noah can lead him away from other people! People with squishy parts that can be hurt.

Also, question... hoooowwww does the Hulk feel about bees?
zen_en_vert: (Default)

[personal profile] zen_en_vert 2016-01-28 11:33 pm (UTC)(link)
haha, I think the hulk would probably not notice bees, sadly, since bullets don't slow him down! Does Thom produce bees?
theresolve: (Pacing the cage)

[personal profile] theresolve 2016-01-28 11:36 pm (UTC)(link)
Thom got a Jar of Bees for slaying some monsters, sooooooo... I figure that might be a good home for the one-use grenade.

I would say not for hulk, unless you want hilarious ineffective anticlimax! In which case, definitely for hulk.
fervence: (to make it all fall faster everyday)

[personal profile] fervence 2016-01-27 11:05 pm (UTC)(link)
Lloyd would definitely try to help try and keep Hulk from hurting anyone, and he's a sturdy little punk with his exsphere so even if he gets tossed around a lot he'll mostly bounce back alright.

[personal profile] zen_en_vert 2016-01-27 11:55 pm (UTC)(link)
Awesome! Tossing is a go, then.
fervence: (there's method in my madness)

[personal profile] fervence 2016-01-28 12:07 am (UTC)(link)
And he doesn't hold grudges, so that's pretty sweet. Also whoops, let me add you on plurk too.

[personal profile] whichend 2016-01-29 05:00 pm (UTC)(link)
Arya will definitely be kind of curious but also a little scared of the Hulk! The fear is probably going to start overpowering the curiosity once he starts smashing the city, but she'll want to help him stop in some way. If you're interested/comfortable, Arya can do this thing where she enters the mind of animals, and with some difficulty, people, and she can try to get into Hulk's head to get him to calm down, maybe stop and smell the flowers or the rubble.

[personal profile] zen_en_vert 2016-01-29 06:08 pm (UTC)(link)
Perfect! She is high on his do not smash list, so this will be a great end to the fiasco.

[personal profile] whichend 2016-01-29 07:16 pm (UTC)(link)

The brief mind-sharing process isn't exactly the most pleasant thing in the world, and it's a two-way sort of thing so Arya will probably leave some stuff behind, whether it's memories or general thoughts and emotions. What Bruce retains and how much he hates the experience is totally up to you, canon isn't very specific about it.

Beautiful. We can wing it! I'm sure it'll be fun :)
