Characters: TEAM 'POKE STUFF WITH A STICK AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS' (which is still open to anyone topside!)
Setting: starting at Floor 56, extending to the other terribad floors (16, 26, 43, 44, 59)
Format: starting in prose, either is fine in comments!
Summary: The exhaustion effects are worse on certain floors, so time to get our investigating on.
Warnings: Standard Tower warnings apply (psychological horror, possible physical horror, I'll edit this if worse comes up)

It wasn't a bad plan. 'Look for something that doesn't belong and see if it's on the other bad floors, and if it's there, we'll figure it out'. It was simple.

That, of course, meant things couldn't possibly go easily, Feferi thought as she made her way down the stairs. Still, she remained optimistic as she approached the entrance to floor 56.

"All right. Let's do this."

She tightened the grip on her trident. The monsters might have been gone, but who knew what else might be lurking? Better to be ready for anything.

[OOC: Now with shiny chip searching and EMP team threads!]
28 April 2014 @ 11:55 pm
Characters: Waver, Marty, anyone else that stayed topside
Setting: Hidden Floor
Format: Any
Summary: Let's figure out that exhaustion thing!
Warnings: TBA

[The Hidden floor is probably the safest place in the Tower right now, but "safe" is relative when everybody is starting to feel the effects of the new threat.

The infiltration team has a dangerous job, but how well can those who stayed behind prepare for the aftermath when they have their own crisis to deal with?]

[This is a mingly log! Feel free to post your own subthread!]

02 July 2013 @ 10:47 pm
Characters: Rick and Feferi to start; if you want to thread running into him after the fact, that's also fine! Just do the new subject thing. In 1-16, Rick and his assortment of roommates (the ones that aren't actively avoiding the scary writing above them that is).
Setting: Dorms, floor one, on July 2nd
Format: Prose to start, can match!
Summary: Rick is terrified of everything! General newbie investigations. Also getting the blood off the ceiling, what a pain am I right
Warnings: Moping and copious indecision?

Um...um... )

Retreat to Room 1-16 )
Who: [au2] Chloe and [ou] Feferi

Where: Floor 75, the top floor of the tower, after clearing a few monsters en route.
When: 7-1, late
Warnings: Chloe. Possibly a fair amount of creepy black flirting. Fighting. Blood. Possibility of serious bodily harm/death. Maybe a kiss. Yeah... Chloe's got a weird thing for deadly women, and trolls are ... trolls.

Characters: Empress Feferi Peixes and all her subjects (OPEN)
Setting: Dorm floors, Floor 10, Floor 73, and around the tower - name your place!
Format: Prose to start, but I'll match you in comments.
Summary: The rumor carved in tiny print on the back of Feferi's neck is well-hidden, and she honestly meant well. She wanted to protect everyone. But a wish like that is never so simple in the Tower.
Warnings: LOTS OF THEM. Coddling and meddling in business that isn't hers, in the interest of 'helping' people. Trying to control others' behavior, in the name of 'not letting others suffer' - and this means pushing them towards believing in other Tower rumors, pointing your character towards death traps, stopping anything that will hurt it* or saying 'let me put you out of your suffering'. Also, a quick temper, and the writing is on the wall - if she thinks your character is in the wrong, there will be no card-game challenge**, only death.

But it's all for the best, really. She doesn't want you to hurt anymore, or to fight.

Character death is especially likely on Floor 73 - Feferi is angry and will justify any murder as one against her. If you only want her to mess with your character, don't tag into that prompt.

* except the resistance. she didn't mention it in the original rumor, and it's safe.
** but you will get a gold star for trying to challenge her to a card game.

only teardrops, only teardrops... )
05 May 2013 @ 08:55 pm
Characters: Feferi Peixes and Gamzee Makara (both OU-flavored)
Setting: Floor 56
Format: Prose to start, action in comments.
Summary: Feferi found out Gamzee's been messing with the Slap-Chop. YOU DON'T GO MESSING WITH THE SLAP-CHOP.
Warnings: LANGUAGE. Is mentioning Jason a warning? IT IS NOW. Also, highblood trolls are their own brand of crazy, and angry ones even more so. Violence is always a possibility, and they might try to kill each other before this is all said and done.

just don't lie to me. )
Characters: Zelda, a box, her trusted friends and allies, and you!
Setting: One of the ladies' bathrooms, the cafeteria, the workshop, and somewhere else...
Format: Starting action, but can do prose!
Summary: A new month, a new plot point in Zelda's mailbox. In less resistance related news, stopping to smell the roses (or the rose flavored tea) is good for the soul, and the Princess is terrible at sewing.
Warnings: DEAR GOD THE TL;DR None as of yet.

It's all you can do, use what's been given to you )
Characters: Urotsuki and OPEN!
Setting: Dormitory hallways, cafeteria, floor 49 (mirror maze).
Format: Action.
Summary: Kidou goes missing. Guess who doesn't take it particularly well after her search for him turns up nothing.
Warnings: Nothing for the first prompt, for the second one gore, use of a chainsaw. Possible harm for characters but not very likely, see the ooc note!

because i am stupid and blind. )
Characters: Anyone who signed up for the Dark World Plot! Look at tag list for more details.
Setting: The 4th and 5th of March. Located in the Cursed Floors + Ganon's Tower (Floors 6, 7, 8, 12, 62, 65, 68, 70, 73 and 79 + Floor 75).
Format: Most likely action but left at the players's discretion.
Summary: Your character somehow got trapped in the Forest Floor of the Tower-- And it looks nothing like the Forest Floor the characters remember. It's the beginning of the Dark World. Some floors look pretty different from what they did before, some nearly identical. The only way to get out is to go through the dungeons that make up this Dark World.

All characters start out in the Dark Forest, then as they go throughout the forest, they magically walk into one of the three dungeons (the one they have been assigned to). By exploring the dungeons, they will acquire one of the three Pendants that lead to the Core of the Curse, from where the cursed floors can be ended. However, Richtofen is there and happy to make sure that won't be that easy.

Mingle threads are simply for Mingle, whereas the exploration of the dungeons, puzzles, etc happens in the Exploration threads. OOC information here.

Warning: While your character may survive fine and all, the dark world is a dangerous place with lots of monsters and puzzles to solve. Characters may get harmed or killed, but that is left to the players's discretion. Characters going through the water of temple may lose their patience and sanity.

Characters: Gamzee Makara and YOU!
Setting: Floor 87 (Poppy Field) and Floor 80 (Circus).
Format: Action.
Summary: On floor eighty-seven, Gamzee has a rendezvous with a pair of severed legs. Feel free to interrupt his awkward date with them - he needs all the support he can get trying to end their tryst. On floor eighty, he flips his fucking shit about the addition of the circus. Come fucking party, you know you want to. You'll probably be treated to candy and a show for your time.
Warnings: Gamzee is his own warning. Also bloody legs.

I'm fashionably just designed to be rad, oh and he's no accessory to me. )
10 February 2013 @ 11:24 pm
Characters: Feferi Peixes and OPEN
Setting: Floor 74
Format: Starting in prose, but I'll match you!
Summary: The most optimistic troll in the tower has gone off the deep end. She kind of told three tower admins where she'd be killing monsters. Someone needs to talk sense into this girl.
Warnings: Highblooded troll who's not exactly stable, so she might curse/scream at your character at first. Violence associated with monster-killing. Will update, if needed.

Characters: Feferi Peixes and Open!
Setting: The first floor, around room 1-05, and the infirmary
Format: Action
Summary: Troll flu isn't exactly like human flu. Feferi's mostly going to be good and stay in bed, but she's going to also take a trip to the infirmary. Why? Because.
Warnings: one miserable fish troll who really needs to be in bed. said fish troll is also event-infected.

the first floor and room 1-05 )
the infirmary )
Characters: Feferi Peixes and Colette Brunel
Setting: Room 1-05
Format: Action to start, but I can switch?
Summary: Over time, Feferi has realized that she really doesn't like talking about That Jerk Jason over the network where he can possibly see it and make things worse for her and her friends. So she's explaining who he is and why he's so bad in person. (It's also so she has a pillow to hug while she does it. She really doesn't like talking about him.)

I can see the end... )

05 September 2012 @ 09:46 pm
Characters: EVERYONE
Format: Whichever you guys choose!
Summary: SHADOW EVENT IS LIVE! But basically, Izanami sends out her fog and that creates Shadows that then cause trouble
Warnings: LOTS of personal issues!!!

[Disappointment. Izanami had never felt it as strongly. To watch the other residents struggle with themselves, with the parts they deny, strength faltering. It's too much. So, the goddess has decided, it's time for them to receive a little push.

She'd gone to the cafeteria in the dead of night, just around when midnight would be. And then it's simple--to just allow the fog to spill out and cover the tower, filling every nook and cranny it can find. With it will come the Shadows, and her fellow prisoners will be forced to face themselves and grow, realize their potential or die.

It will certainly be interesting to watch.]

[[OOC: There will be threads for the days of the week! You CAN tag outside of this with Shadow stuff, though. This is just to make all the beginning things nice and tidy!]]
