Monthly Rundown: August Edition

July wasn't so bad, was it? Nothing like a few communication errors and some good old fashioned monster hunting to set everyone back on the right track. August is going to be pretty fun as well, with Fear's Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark, and a little twist on a previous 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 July do not require AC proofs, but we do require a check-in on the post.

AUGUST PART 1: SOMEBODY'S WATCHING ME
We hope you guys are happy with all of your gifts and blessings from the extinction event! Maybe they'll come in handy when fighting off the new wave of monsters, because on August 10th, the intro log is going to go up, teeming with fresh new faces and some faces that only a mother could- no, I'm pretty sure their mothers don't love them either.

For the intro log this month, the Door will be bringing in Stalkers from the Borderlands game series! Stalkers are four legged monsters with an array of claws, teeth, and prehensile tails that can fire large spikes at you from quite a distance away.

If that's not enough, Stalkers also have the ability to turn themselves invisible by charging up electricity in their sachs organ located on their heads. Deal enough electrical damage to them to, uh... drain this organ (don't argue with video game logic) and you can prevent them from turning invisible and basically assassinating you from twenty feet away. Nobody wants to be assassinated from twenty feet away, right?

AUGUST PART 2: BEETLEJUICE
On the 13th of August, characters will wake up to notice that something is a little different around the city. While it might not be immediately noticeable, as the morning drags on and the natural light is supposed to start coming on and illuminating the cave, it just... doesn't.

Fear is at it again, and this time, he's turned off the lights entirely- and yes, this means that the electrical lights in the houses mysteriously don't work anymore either, though other electrical appliances are still operational. To compensate, he's made sure that you guys have some old spooky lanterns, candles, and flashlights that have a tendency for flickering at the worst times.

After you guys get used to your new lives in darkness, Fear will make a post within the next day or so, in which he'll tell you guys some scary stories and ask for your scary stories in return! The character who tells the spookiest story or has the best spooky prank on another character will win the fabulous prize, of- well, Fear's blessing, which will definitely make you popular with your friends.

The lights will all turn back on and everything will go back to normal on August 18th! Get spoopy!

AUGUST PART 3: LOUD VALLEY
Hope and Delight have been thinking over past events and trying to figure out where it all went wrong, and they're starting with that Silent Hill thing a few months back- which everyone will probably agree, was really unpleasant for all those involved. The Silent Hill pocket in the city is still unpleasant, and so Hope and Delight decide to do something about it.

The two of them will get together and from August 23-30, they will be throwing a reverse Silent Hill event.

What exactly does that mean? Well, at several points throughout the day, Delight will play some relaxing tunes over the city and the cave's lights will get bright and sunny. Instead of fog rolling in, characters will notice a light fragrance of something flowery and instead of the walls peeling with blood and other demonic stuff, the ground will temporarily sprout lush, green grass and flowers, rainbows will appear near the cave ceiling, and everything- even the bad things- will take a brighter, happier tone. Candy pours out of the faucets instead of water, and the communal stores are filled with coloring books, snuggies, and cheerful greeting cards.

As far as the monsters go, each character will also find that they have one of those as well... though they're more like regular animals now, and they like to come visit them whenever the Loud Valley music starts playing. Think of them like familiars or patronuses- however, like Silent Hill monsters, they disappear when the city transformation effect wears off.

The last Loud Valley song and transformation will play on August 30th!

Do Teletubbies count as "like animals" for the sake of the reverse-silent-hill companion thing?
muscovy: (discovery)

Follow-up question that just occurred to me - would their TV screens show videos/movies?

...More specifically, I've been dying to find a way to show Muscovy (serial numbers filed off) Lilo and Stitch, could it show that? <.<
Or could it show terrible soap operas like he watched in one of his earlier games?

Or would there just be children doing more or less pointless things on the screen?
muscovy: (huh?)

I assume everything that they would be showing would be happy things?

[personal profile] torrefied 2016-07-29 06:55 pm (UTC)(link)

So do the cute familiars have to be small, or can Carlisle have the cuddliest, friendliest bear ever show up, so long as he only promises good, warm hugs? Because I like the idea of this huge thing standing outside his door, patiently waiting for snuggles of the highest degree.
tongueamok: (➣ as planned (for once))

[personal profile] tongueamok 2016-08-11 08:58 pm (UTC)(link)
Yesssssss cuddle bearrrrrr. Thanks, mods!
crowboy: (We need to talk)

Re: Questions!

[personal profile] crowboy 2016-08-14 02:35 pm (UTC)(link)
That bear is giving me bedroom eyes and I'm not sure how this makes me feel >.>
tongueamok: (➣ paranoia with purpose)

He wants all the cuddles.
