Characters: A lot of characters, check the tags!
Setting: Various floors for gathering the seeds; the battles will happen on the Roof of Towerception (Floor 75).
Format: Prose or action, whichever you prefer!

Summary: That's the log for everything related to the Nyx Avatar player plot! The OOC post is here if you want more information about it! You can also use it if you want to plot about how the battles will go. The log is going to be divided into five main threads: a first thread for Ganondorf to gather the "seeds" who will be used to make Ryoji go into his Nyx Avatar mode. Essentially, he's just going to trap them into nifty, colored crystals while they're distracted. The second thread will be about Ryoji reaching the roof of towerception and subsequently being kept there alongside the four seeds till the heroes arrive.

The third thread will be about the 'heroes' arriving to Towerception-- If they took part in the Sephiroth battle, they will have received a seemingly friendly letter asking them to come, otherwise either they will just happen to pass by the tower and feel a strange presence / hear weird noises. Finally, the fourth thread will be about the battle against the seeds with a sub-thread per seed, and the final thread about the battle against Ryoji. As a reminder, the four "seeds of grief" are: Diarmuid, Lancer, Patrick Dawn and Yukiko Amagi.

Because of how the log is divided, you can start the battles without having to wait for the three "lead-in" threads to be completed.

Warning: Evil gloating. Unending lectures about the tarot arcana. Lots of sad all around. Of course, anyone participating in the battle against either the seeds or Nyx takes the non-negligible risk of being killed or grievously wounded.

16 December 2013 @ 07:32 pm
Characters: You. Yes, you!
Setting: December 16th through 21st, all the places!
Format: Any!
Summary: Plague doctor panic shenanigans for the Into An Abyss event, day two and onwards until the pesky creatures stop annoying everyone. Or in the case of non-orange-collared people, maiming them.
Warnings: Monsters! Battles! Death! Orange collar badassery! The Tower! Too much to handle!!

[After a day of putting things into the strange portal on floor twenty-three, something finally comes out. Many somethings. And it seems they are not satisfied with only the stray finger to nibble on...]

OOC stuff )
16 December 2013 @ 08:42 am
Characters: Aria (R-037), open
Setting: infirmary all week
Format: action preferred
Summary: Aria is open to speak to the residents of the Tower, if they would like to.
Warnings: potential horror event warnings; for now nothing though
Note: Please specify the date you are visiting Aria in your subject header.

[The infirmary swarms with retrieval units and worker units, all of whom have chipped collars. Most of them seem busy with one task or another, but a few are free enough to direct anyone who asks to speak to Aria to the woman in question. She's converted one of the examination rooms into something of an office, albeit a sparse one. She looks nervous and a little tired, but excited all the same. Her office is guarded by four retrieval units--attacking her here would be a bad idea, even setting aside the fact that Aria is a retrieval unit herself.

She seems happy to see anyone who walks in, though.]
16 December 2013 @ 09:29 am
Characters: Ganondorf and anyone desiring to organize in order to fight Jason.
Setting: The Cafeteria, early morning on the 16th.
Format: Action for the main reunion, whatever for the mingle threads.

Summary: Ganondorf sent to every mailbox in the tower this letter. You may also happen to find some copies of the letter on random floors if you don't have a mailbox just yet. It's basically a call for people willing to kill Jason and it tells them to gather at the Cafeteria so as to start organizing. Some more explanation here. Ganondorf won't care if you're a good guy or one of his sworn enemies-- This is a greater cause to fight for, right? And greater causes call for truces. Besides, it's not like he's secretly hoping to absorb Jason's power if they manage to defeat him, nope.

So if you wanna become a part of Jasonbusters? Just hop right in!

Warning: If your character decides to take part to the effort to attack Jason and that they do manage to kill him well. There will be consequences, but what is life without a healthy dose of risk? And Ganondorf will take the biggest part of the punishment (permanent death) if he kills Jason anyway, so that's win-win for everyone.

Mingling (Pre Meeting)
The Meeting
17 November 2013 @ 09:27 pm
Characters: Anyone who's part of a science team!
Setting: Whichever floor your team is working on.
Format: Prose or action, whichever you prefer.

Summary: It's been two months and a half since the researches have started and they should come to an end by next month. At this point the scientists should be realizing they're getting somewhere, they just need more time to figure everything out. Because it'll end soon, this log is so every team can mingle and play out scenes of the research effort-- If that's not already been done!

The teams can all be found here. The list is not up to date, but it's a general idea of what the teams look like. Just, feel free to reply to the thread of the team you belong to! The threads may be backdatted, given the ongoing Sephiroth plot may make some character unavailable. As the team have to move a lot, there is no set floor so pick whichever one you want. If you'd like to participate, you can sign-up here!

Warnings: Absolutely nothing! Well, unless you decide to play out a monster attacking your team. Or if you are part of the Violet and Orange teams, maybe.

Characters: Anyone and everyone
Setting: Cafeteria, Noon, Nov 7th
Format: Anything
Summary: A party/discussion mingle after calling a meeting of the residents.
Warnings: tba

The anonymous post on the network was an invitation to gather, discuss and share information. Maybe they would get incredibly lucky and get to the bottom of things, such as who was behind the bombings or the strange things that went on during Quarantine.

Someone has been at work down here in the dining hall, moving the tables around to create a space in the middle in case people felt like dancing. Most of the chairs are around the outside and facing the middle, for everyone to see each other better. There was another space and some chairs for musicians, and a couple of the larger tables were set up with a large buffet of normal cafeteria food (because Zo wasn't likely to poison them) and resident prepared dishes, both clearly marked.

Of course, there was always the oatmeal.

Characters: Ryoga Hibiki & Anyone!
Setting: Dorms/Dorm 2-02 and literally any floor in the tower. (You pick the floor?)
Format: Whichever
Summary: Ryoga makes his debut in the tower while following his lost boy ways. Hopefully he makes it to the cafeteria?
Warnings: Perhaps some extreme comedy/overreacting, and possible violence!

Dorms/Dorm Room 2-02 )
Characters : Open to any and every villains in the tower and/or morally gray characters in the tower who are so done with the situation and are ready to take things one step further.
Setting: The meeting will start in the Second Tower (75th Floor) and the mingle threads will happen there as well. If a spy or a retrieval unit gets too close to the reunion, all participants will automatically be teleported to another floor so as to prevent information leaking. Well, more or less like for the previous meeting.
Format: Action or prose, whatever you prefer best!

Summary: Some things never change, and atop of the thing that never changes are bad guys and their habits of being, bad guys. So this is a reunion for all bad guys and characters in the gray morals, the fourth of its kind. Basically all those who think the ends justify the means, all those who don't mind having to do harsh stuff to defeat the admins, etc. If your character qualifies, feel free to post in. There are no invitations or network message about it, Ganondorf has simply spread the "rumor" that a reunion is about to happen on the 75th floor, so that all the "bad guys" can get word of it.

The reunion will center mostly around the recent events (explosions, glamour, deadline) and of course, future plotting. What the administrators do, what the various groups did and will do, most importantly what the bad guys should do. There will be one reunions as said before: open to every morally gray characters. Maybe plot new things, offer ideas and have villains cooperate? There will also be mingle thread open to everyone as well, they're generally the best way to get new CR with fellow ambiguous villains.

Warnings: EVIL. Evil plotting. Lovely and adorable things, needless to say. Heroes forbidden unless they have a death wish or who knows, worse?

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. )

Mingling (Pre/Post Reunion)
The Reunion (Open)
01 October 2013 @ 05:53 am
Characters: Reno, (see prompts) and OPEN
Setting: Floor 38, a lounge floor
Format: Either
Summary: He'd been complacent for far too long. It was time to act, to prepare and plan and scope out opportunities.
Warnings: Language, character instability, intolerable levels of cuteness, also Reno being somewhat crude and a jackass.

Rather long )

Prompt 1 - Elena )

Prompt 2 - Shion )

Prompt 3 - Xion )

Prompt 4 - Riku )

Prompt 5 - Open )
24 September 2013 @ 12:28 am
Characters: any characters trapped in rooms during the event
Setting: dormitory level rooms
Format: any
Summary: An unexpected series of explosions has trapped residents in the dorm rooms with no power and no way to get out. Try to communicate with the outside, deal with being stuck in a small room with other people... Deal with the really strange things that seem to be happening, too.
Warnings: typical Animus horror event warnings

[There are several more explosions, and the sound of things falling and crumbling outside. The dorm rooms themselves don't collapse or cave in, but the furniture and trunks and nightstands may be rattled and knocked about. Eventually, the lights flicker and go out entirely, leaving everyone in the dark. There are small red emergency lights lining the floors, but they don't seem to have come on all the way, and flicker on and off eerily.

After maybe twenty minutes everything falls silent. However, if you try the door, you'll find you can't get out...]
23 September 2013 @ 10:09 pm
Characters: Riki, open
Setting: dormitory floor 5, 6:00PM
Format: action
Summary: Riki visits the populace.
Warnings: nothing for now

[Riki's announcement is prefaced with a loudspeaker announcement stating, simply, "I will be taking questions on dormitory floor five in one hour." And, in one hour, Riki arrives. He steps out of an elevator that vanishes into the wall seamlessly. There are no retrieval units with him, nor are there worker units, but he doesn't look worried. A blank screen that seems to be made of the air itself floats in the air near his head, following him as he moves. For now, though, he waits--he's already announced that he'll be here, after all.]
19 September 2013 @ 12:11 am
Characters: Annika Whittenberg and anyone else
Setting: Cafeteria, floor 5 viewing stations, and dorms.
Format: Prose to start, but I'm fine with replying to whichever.
Summary: Seasoned adventurers don't take these sorts of sudden life changes nearly as bad as some. Annika's so seasoned she's positively dried out and dessicated, so she's taking her arrival to the tower fairly well. At first.
Warnings: Undead are gross?

Cafeteria )

Floor 5 - Viewing Stations )

Dorms - Room 1-05 )
Characters: Ganondorf and you.
Setting: Music Floor, Second Tower, Cafeteria, Research Library and around Room 02-16.
Format: Prose or action, will follow.
Summary: A regular day in the life of an evil overlord. In the first prompt, Ganondorf is having a particularly bad time with the music room and its annoying instruments choosing to play on their own. The second prompt is about Ganondorf training and the third one is just coffee time. In the fourth prompt he is protecting the Violet Research Team from monsters while trying to study science and understand exactly what this is all about. The final prompt happens in in his room, where Ganondorf tries to open the secret elevator as a part of his master plan to take over the tower.
Warning: Ganondorf himself is a warning, but there should be nothing too evil in this post. Fighting monsters in the training and science prompts, destruction of musical instruments in the first prompt. Will edit if anything else comes up.

Characters: An actually relieved Ryoji Mochizuki and anyone that wants to swat him for ditching so long.
Setting: 4-16, Floor 78, and pretty much anywhere else.
Format: Choose either and I'll match!
Summary: Ryoji finally returns back to life after wandering his dead world as a ghost, and returns with a greater appreciation of the Tower's existence... at least until he finds the gift left in his mailbox from just when he left.
Warnings: General woobie Ryoji stuff, and he's cheerier than normal.

This clock never seemed so alive )
Characters: Anyone who's willing to work for SCIENCE.
Setting: The Workshop (Floor 15) for the IC questions to the scientists and the mingle thread. Then each group will be positioned on a different floor so as to not alert the administrators with a large group of people gathering at a single place for a long time.
Format: Prose or action, whichever you prefer.

Summary: This log marks the start of the research on the collar fluid! As was mentioned in the sign-ups post, words was passed around about the need of more people to help and study the collar fluid. Characters signing-up have all been divided into seven teams, which can be found here. ICly, Doc Brown made the team based on what he thinks is the most efficient. You can still sign-up here.

There will be a thread in case your character needs to ask a question or anything to the starter scientists (Doc, Waver, Sertoria or Sephiroth) and in parallel a mingle thread for all the characters during the 'recruitment', even if they end up assigned to different teams. And then obviously, there are the individual threads for each teams so the new teammates can get and know each other if they don't already.

For their first day the teams will be on different floors, but following this nothing prevents two teams from working closeby or on different floors. For reference, there are three set of scientific equipment, each containing a microscope, a small centrifuge, beakers, test tubes, many testing apparatuses, etc. They'll be shared between the seven teams depending on what they need for their researches.

Warnings: Nothing! There will be no NPC tags here, researches shouldn't be dangerous and this log is mostly for the characters to get and know each other, so this should be a relatively harmless log. Well, unless you're in the Violet or Orange team of course. In which case, good luck.

29 July 2013 @ 09:00 am
Characters: All the characters who signed up for this infiltration, too many to write them all here. Characters who stay behind and do not infiltrate can tag into the mingle thread.
Setting: The Cafeteria, then the Elevator's Shaft and finally the Administrative Floors. The 29th of July, in the morning.
Format: Action most likely.

Summary: A month ago Ganondorf planned an infiltration to go and pay a visit to Riki's floor-- Given what has happened these last weeks, the 'Evil Alliance' has accepted to allow Enoch and the people he gathered to use the infiltration in order to do their own thing. Namely, retrieve scientific instruments from Jason's laboratory, so as to study the Collar Fluid. The infiltration will begin on the 1st floor, the Cafeteria.

The first thread is a traditional mingle thread, happening before the infiltration and briefing begin; anyone can tag into it. The second thread is a quick briefing before the infiltration starts, where Enoch and Ganondorf will explain to everyone what to do and what to expect in case they don't already know. Then there are the seven group threads, one for each individual team infiltrating.

The OOC post is here for more information. If you have signed-up but didn't pick a group yet, please do so here. While the infiltration takes place, the villains who stayed behind are unleashing a distraction on the tower and those who don't go.

Warnings: Administrative floors, danger, death, horror. Anyone tagging here is probably going to die, or at the very least meet with a terrible fate.
