glitterpants: (( 112 karamatsu girl ))
[ Despite being relatively quiet on the network, Karamatsu has been keeping up to date with what has been happening in Riverview. Well, what was important to him, anyway, and what was important to him was the fact there was going to be a masquerade this week. Going to bed every night and knowing there are people out there who don't have perfect fashion for this sort of thing was making him feel determined, and dare I even say.. proactive.

Unfortunately, when Karamatsu becomes inspired, it's usually pretty bad.
Today, he's dressed in this and seems awfully proud of it.

He strikes a pose, spreading the wings out to show off all of the colors with an exclamation of "bang!" which is nothing like the sound a bird should make (was he bird or just being extra??? we just don't know.) Then, he relaxes, cupping his chin with one hand. ]


Heheh. It seems there's going to be a party on Saturday. If you want to look as perfect as me, I will be happy to help and tailor you an outfit if you do not have one. Please, no payment is necessary. Take it as kindness from my own heart, as I do not want anybody to have an insufficient costume for such an event.
Thank you.
[ And that's it? He also ruined his identity by posting this early, but hey, that's fine. ]

riverview: july test drive meme

Jul. 20th, 2017 08:17 am[personal profile] riverviewmod posting in [community profile] quaranmeme
riverview test drive meme

Welcome to Riverview's test drive meme! Feel free to dip your toes in on the test drive meme to try out your character in the setting, play out a mission, and get samples for your application at the same time!

● There are currently 13 Character Slots available.
Applications open on August 1st and will remain open until such time as there are 30 or more character slots available at one time. Applications will be processed on a first-come-first-served basis. Any applications in excess of available spots will be placed in a queue and processed as drops or activity sweeps happen.
● Providing all parties are amenable, threads on the test drive meme can count as game canon, as the plot in the prompts presented is game canon, and may continue while applicants are waiting on the queue (including spanning multiple TDMs).
● TDM threads do not count for Activity Check, but they do count for Activity Bonus Points, so long as all characters involved are accepted into the game.
● Threading on the TDM is intended for prospective new characters, so top-levels should only be posted by players of these characters. Since the events in the TDM are considered game canon, characters currently in the game are free to use the TDM prompts for logs and posts on the regular communities.

Feel free to use the prompts below or create your own scenario. The setting is built to be flexible, so feel free to make things up as you go.

Has anyone noticed the message board at headquarters?

[Yes, he's talking about the Perimeter Guard missions.]

I've had a really bad feeling lately, and my suspicions are that I'm not alone on this one.

[He knows how touchy some people can be about saying against this place, but Ed and gods didn't mix well. He spent too much of his life denying their existence just to spend five years under the power of them, or at least beings claiming to be them - and if he eventually could convince himself they weren't, he'd be much happier. That didn't mean he wanted a repeat of that.]

Some of the stuff going on recently has been a little too familiar for my liking, and if there's any possibility that some sleeping god is behind it, I'm going to go check it out.

[It's not easy spending your life afraid of glitter, okay. Between the carnival, the glitter, the sudden influx of people - which he's learned just began a few months ago - this place was starting to look suspiciously like a certain other event in his life. Even if he's wrong, he doesn't even want to chance that this thing waking up is going to change the dynamic everyone had grown so used to here.

If it being asleep is what's causing the portal to function the way it is, though? He doesn't want to kill or destroy it, either. In his experience that would send most people, if not everyone, home - and a lot of the residents here didn't want that. If he was being honest, himself included.]


[ooc: Chloe and Ed are at it again, Chloe will have a log up sometime next week to get this plot going. In the meantime, Ed's suspicions are super high and no one else cares so he's none too happy, atm. I will be throwing up a public plurk for plotting and discussion, and linking it here once I've put it up.]

masquerade: ooc auction signs up

spellslots: DNT (I know I've got a big ego)
Hey folks, as per Doom's announcement, there will be a bachelor/ette component at the masquerade, and this here post is for signing up, and for finding potential bidders. This way everyone has the opportunity to make their decisions about who they want to ~win~ their character's auction OOCly, rather than getting into IC bidding wars (unless you want to have IC bidding wars, in which case, be my guest) and worrying about who has the most money.

You can sign up your character along with their highest bidder in the thread here, using the very simple form below, once decisions are made. Until then the rest of this post can be used as a plotting post. Just drop a comment with a little description of your character including if they'd have given a preference for bidders, and interested parties can say hi! If you're super popular and having trouble deciding, feel free to RNG the bidders to make the decision easier.



NOTE: OOCly, everyone needs to agree that their character signed up for the auction, but you're welcome to say they were volunteered by someone else ICly, Doom don't care.

NOTE 2: As a response to some questions we got, I've got a couple clarifying points
1) Is there a limit to how many bids a character can place/win? No, but don't be a dick, let other folks have the opportunity to win auctions and build CR!
2) Can characters bid on behalf of someone else? Yes, but make sure it's OOCly discussed and don't use it as a way to get around preferences
3) What is the IC set up going to be? There will be a stage in the main hall where the bachelor/ettes will go up, with someone (Doom?? Loki?? Who knows) announcing/managing the bids. You can assume characters will have been asked to provide a little spiel about themselves, but you don't have to actually write it if you don't want.

text + action.

Hey, two questions.

Are there cameras in the bathrooms? And does anyone know a good place to start growing plants? If you have somewhere, I will gladly exchange piano lessons, fighting (and weaponry) assessment and suggestions, or some sort of favor (within reason). I'm afraid I don't really have much in way of cash right now.

Last but not least (not a question), if anyone would care to buddy up for a little good ol' fashioned exploring, then I'm your gal.

You know what's a great game? Poker. Poker is a fantastic game, and a good way to get to know someone.

What do you fine people say to a regular game meetup? If we could get a group together, it could be a lot of fun.

'Course we'll have to hammer out the rules, even in the Milky Way not every planet or every casino on the same planet play by the same rules. We'd also have to find a place to meet to play, but I think that will be the easy part. Plenty of tables and chairs around.

When: Today throughout July


[Someone's back from her coma. It might be hard to tell, because she immediately disappears into her quarters (not hanging around on the bridge, as usual, or working on the battered shuttle).

One other indication that she's back; she quietly delivers her gift basket - unopened - to the galley. It's yours for the taking. Among the usual items, it also includes candied grubs, a scarf and goggles, and a little toy car. Either she didn't want these items, or more likely she didn't bother to open it in the first place.

If you want to check you'll have to ask her yourself, which might be easier said than done; after the calibrations themselves, and post-coma grogginess and fatigue, she's not going to make herself available as much as she usually does. You still might be able to catch her when she has to make a trip to the galley, as necessity dictates, or if there are any captain duties that require her attention on the bridge.]

appetitive: (and here's the frozen proof)
Hey Riverview! I'm Kai, and I'm also very late at introducing myself. Sorry about that, life dealt me a ton of stuff to get done almost as soon as I was accepted earlier this month.

Anyways, I'm bringing in Magnus Bane from the television series Shadowhunters. He's got a sprinkling of the book version of his character as well, but I admittedly haven't finished reading the series so I'm going off the TV canon where I at least know what the heck is going on. He's the 400+ year old High Warlock of Brooklyn, and while he's rather sassy he is also secretly a softie who will adopt any- and everyone. He's also got a dash of CR AU from his previous game, meaning he's married to his canon boyfriend Alec Lightwood.

I'd love to build up his CR, both positive and negative! He'd be interested in getting to know other magic-users from different dimensions as well as a wide range of supernatural beings. He's familiar with "mundane" human culture as well, but he doesn't really have any human friends, so that would be interesting too! Though he's sharing an apartment with a castmate, he can be met wandering around floor 13 and any communal spaces. He's also the new owner of The Quarantine Bar if anyone wants to stop by for a very magical drink! I'll also be backtagging his Carnivale Event thread forever if you want to bump into him there.

As for me, I can be found on plurk at [plurk.com profile] octopie or through PM. There's also my CR meme thread if you want to hit me up. My timezone is UTC+9 so... I apologize in advance about weird timing for anyone in the USA or Europe!

[When Thor switches the camera on, it's momentarily engulfed by his face before he sits himself back. Now that the frame isn't obscured, it's apparent that he's not the only one there. Both Lokis, Angela and Sif sit either side of him, all situated around a booth at some sort of diner.

Thor, naturally, is the first to start talking.]


It has come to light in one way or another that we could be considered Gods. [He's keeping it vague on purpose.] It is true, in a sense, that we are are not unlike higher beings. We are not mortals and we have powers and abilities beyond what many would be considered normal. The myths and the legends, however, are not precisely true.

[He just wanted to clear that up.] As such, we thought it would be prudent to offer our services in times of need. For missions or protections, we can be of use in many situations. You need only ask.

[He says we, but he largely means I.

Angela, for her part, doesn't look as opposed to the idea as she probably could.]


I will add that I will require payment for my services, but that can be negotiated at a later time.

[ She glances around the table at her siblings as if daring them to counter her.

The younger Loki leans into shot, finger raised. ]


Should you require an actual god, we come in that flavour too.
