Monthly Rundown: June Edition

We hope you enjoyed May! A few good dreams, a few bad - hey, who's counting? We hope that got you all ready for June, which will be a pretty packed month featuring the third god resurrection and a player plot!

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

Last time, you chose Delight, and had an awesome party! That's worked out pretty well, except that she knows nothing about the Door and is also one of the least powerful of the gods. But hey, she's super cool! Thanks to her help and his own efforts, Hope has recovered enough of his power to resurrect another god, and on June 2nd, Delight will pop up again and ask the population of Hadriel to pick from one of three options. Here are your characters' choices for the third god to be resurrected:
CONFUSION: She had a strong showing during the first poll, but fell far behind in the second, so Confusion remains an option! She sides with both Fear and Hope, merging her power with either of them for combination events whenever it feels the most advantageous to her. If Confusion is selected, her event themes will lean more towards absurd, unpredictable events. Her first event will happen at the end of June.

LOVE: Returning after an extremely strong showing in the second poll is Love! Love sides with Fear rather than Hope - because as anyone who's been in love knows, it can be terrifying. Love's events will be mostly on the positive side, however, drawing out feelings of affection, whether platonic or otherwise. If Love is selected, the final event of June will be fluffy and sweet and full of all things affectionate. Maybe.

SORROW: Your new option this time around is Sorrow! Sounds like fun, right? This god sides with neither Fear nor Hope, attempting to stay out of the petty power struggle between the two. However, Sorrow needs power too, and if selected will have event themes focusing on regret, sadness, and despair. Awesome! But hey, having a good cry can feel nice sometimes, right? If Sorrow is chosen, prepare your tissue boxes for the end of June.

Each potential god has their own set of pros and cons that they bring to the table, so try to let your characters consider their options carefully! Just as they did last time, each god will also have the power to create a unique building in the city upon their revival. Some buildings will be better or more useful than others, and all building options will be presented ICly in Delight's post on June 2nd. Some may be different than past polls, so watch closely!

While everyone debates the best choice of god, new arrivals will appear as usual in the intro log on June 10th. Alongside them will be Skulltulas from the Zelda video game series, suggested by Jem!

Skulltulas are large spiders with abdomens that look like skulls. They like to cling to walls and drop down from ceilings to surprise people, and their hard exoskeletons can protect them from many attacks. However, if you manage to get one to rear up and strike it underneath, you'll find that its belly is soft and squishy and easy to skewer. Watch out for those webs!

While Hope is gearing up for the next resurrection, the gods start thinking about what to do with the inhabitants of Hadriel in the meantime - only to have all their potential plans thrown into disarray.

After quite a few very bad months, Sharon da Silva is pretty much done with all this crap. On June 15th, she'll attempt to push things to a breaking point the best way she knows how: by summoning parts of Silent Hill into Hadriel itself. Nice problem-solving!

For five days, until June 20th, the cave light will go dim. The usual total lack of weather will be replaced by a constant fog, made even creepier at night. Feel free to wander about if you'd like, but keep an ear out - if you hear the sound of a siren, you'd better run for cover. That will mark the moment Silent Hill's darkness really descends. If you're out and about, you'll find the city twisting and changing and flooding with monsters - both from the caves and from darker, more personal parts of yourself.

Yes, Silent Hill will be bringing along a personal monster for everyone, designed by their subconscious, their fears and desires and deepest secrets. And they're interested in you specifically, though whether it's to kill you or protect you - okay, let's be real, it's probably to kill you. Oh, and did you think you'd stay safe by hiding away at home? Sorry! The only safe places in Hadriel will be the gods' temples, as they frantically try to figure out what the hell is going on.

Anyone who would like to try to fix this Silent Hill problem themselves, whether by talking or fighting or hugging, is welcome to plot with Lunare, who we all have to thank for this amazing idea! It might be hard to talk Sharon down, though, so if that doesn't work out the gods will step in on June 20th and end the invasion. More info will come in an OOC post before the event!

The final event of June will stretch into the first week of July and will span June 25th-July 3rd. This event is based entirely on which god gets revived, which is a direct result of what your characters vote on. Choose wisely!

Are the personal monsters intended to be freaky symbolic body horror a la the actual Silent Hill games, or is it okay to have them be something more straightforward (a person/creature/whatever from canon that relates to all the SH subconscious criteria)?

FANTASTIC, i was aiming for body horror anyway but thought it'd be helpful to doublecheck. B) Thank you!

When we say "interested in you", could that extend to attacking others to evoke emotional reactions?
