  • You can play your characters as either serious or light. We're a mixed group.
  • Got a problem with a player? Take it to that player in TG to resolve it.
  • It's a fast-moving thread. It's okay to ask "where is everyone and what happened while I was gone?" in the OOC thread.
  • Please save earth-shattering adventures until the weekends. Earth-shattering would be any side-story that affects the entire house (blowing up the building, planet-wide invasions, world destruction, etc). Minor stuff (zombie attacks, localized plagues, genderbenders, etc) can be ignored by players who are offline.
  • What kind of character can I play: We have anthros, velociraptors, gods, demons, angels, cyborgs, robots, magic users and mystical beings, warriors/soldiers/super soldiers, average mortals, A.I.s, thieves, spies, emperors, mad scientists, and whatever Bones and his brothers are. Anime seems to be a big theme, followed by offshoots of various pantheons and fiction.
  • Please don't be a God Mode Sue. We have several powerful characters. They've evolved over time. They will kick your ass if you come in like gangbusters and try to dominate the thread. Look through the character tabs in the post below to gain an understanding of everyone's characters.
  • Act out your violent fantasies elsewhere. We keep it PG-13 here.
  • Please message Swith Witherwward or Cerillium if you plan to play a god. There are specific guidelines in place to keep things in balance so non-god characters are treated fairly

  • OP is GOD. Co-OP are GODS.
  • NO godmodding.
  • There will be NO structural changes made to the city without full permission of OP and Co-OP.
  • Citizens of Bielefeld are not there to be spindled, mutilated and torn apart. City officials (to include police and military) are OP/Co-OP NPCs.

Suggestion on time flow
Time passage: one real day = one day in IC. This wouldn’t apply to characters in slower moving stories. It’s just a gauge. Let’s see how it works. Players can then choose to slow down their scenes to prolong a night.
The IC OP is Cerillium. The IC Co-OP are Bone Fort, Swith Witherward, Tiltjuice.

The OOC OP is Swith Witherward. The OOC Co-OP are Bone Fort, Cerillium, Tiltjuice.

Their word is law. They function as RP moderators for this thread. If you have a problem with a player that can't be solved via TG, take it to them. They serve as mediators. They have the authority to ask any player to leave for just cause.

Current Game Mentors: Giovenith. (PL Game Mentor description here)
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced.

New or inexperienced players are welcomed to join as long as they keep an open mind and desire to improve their skills.

Common sense things for beginners:
We don't use multi-colored or oddly formatted fonts for dialog. We also don't use asterisks to denote action.
PL is a place where new players can learn the basics of RP. The majority of our members are people looking to advance their skills or to learn more about RP in general. We offer RP workshops on our OSF. Veteran players are always welcome as well.

We provide players with a safe haven. We have minors ergo our IC and OOC are kept PG-13.

We are a diverse group comprised of agnostics, atheists, Buddhists, Christians and other faiths. People of all sexual orientations and gender associations are at home here. We have members from all political affiliations and ideologies. We have mixed ethnicity as well as minorities. We respect each other and we respect each person's right to hold their beliefs. We are family here.
We have our own Region (The Apartment Block) and an off-site forum that's dedicated to role-playing. You must be a member of our Region to partake in the off-site forum. Our Region does accept *ACTIVE* puppet nations for that purpose.


Want to know how to join? Simple. Read the rules. Look at the data on this page and the first page of the IC. Submit an application here.

This is a mixed genre RP which allows you to play things that are near and dear to your heart. Other players may currently have characters that are part of your favorite genre... bear that in mind when you apply. Their established canon takes priority.

If you sign up and are approved but don't post, your character is dropped from the roster.
    Cyborgs (40K themed)
    Cyborgs (Drones, somewhat like Borg)
    Fae (Unseelie)
    Judeo-Christian Pantheon
    Star Wars
    Time Cops (including Chronos and Fate)
    Vikings (Norse)
    Warhammer 40K

Gods/Demons run by current players or OPs: Beelzebub, Pride, Envy,Wrath, Loki, the five Chaos gods, Anubis, Satan, Elohim (Christian God).
We're going to a point system for all future apps. We've had a lot of applications recently that are power-heavy. Because we're mixed genre, including regular mortals, I (Swith) felt it was best to go to a system.

Character Unique Skills
Unique skills are what set the character apart from the mundane. Is he a master swordsman? Is she an excellent pilot? Does he speak multiple languages? Is she excellent at diplomacy or negotiations? Unique skills such as languages, piloting, master swordsman do not cost points if they are something a normal person would have if they applied themselves to learn. That's why they're LEARNED SKILLS.

Powers and Superpowers
These are nifty things that set someone apart from a normal mortal character. Increased endurance, time manipulation, ESP, forming fireballs, resistance to toxins, etc are all special abilities that normal mortal characters don't have. This includes "mana manipulation" for spell castors.

Obviously, a characters species can be confusing. A pony character doesn't need to spend points to fly (wings are natural) but will need to spend points if a unicorn (mana manipulation). A dragon doesn't need to spend points to have a tough hide because he has... drumroll... scales. You get the picture?

If in doubt, send Swith Witherward a TG.

Power Scale
In an effort to even things out, characters with powers/magic are allotted 12 (twelve) points to spread through whatever powers they desire. A listing can be found here. You can not have more than 8 in any one power. You don't have to use all your points. You don't have to have a character with any powers at all, if you so wish.

Why is it important to balance points?
Super Power: Enhanced Strength
    Power level 7 - Type I: Being able to lift up cars to trucks, buses, and trucks of great size.
    Power level 8 - Being able to throw those objects (rather than lift, walk a few feet and drop them.)
    Power level 9 - Type II: Being able to lift heavier structures from battleships to massive aircrafts.
    Power level 10 - Being able to throw those objects.
    Power level 11 - Type III: Ex: Being able to lift skyscraper size structures and being capable of moving mountainous figures at top strength.
    Power level 12 - Being able to throw those objects.

But that's tempered by limitations:
    - Balance, gravity, and mass still affect the user.
    - Users are still susceptible to Newton's Three Laws of Motion.
    - Strength does not equal durability. If a user were to attempt to lift something extremely heavy over their head, their bones and joints could snap.
    - May damage environment/other people without meaning or noticing.
    - There may be a limit to how strong a user can become before it's dangerous for themselves to use. (Ex: Gentle.)
    - May be limited to certain limbs.

That's where other powers come in to assist the character. Structure Weakening, for example, allows for a bit less effort (and lessons risk of injury for larger structures). Enhanced Durability allows the character to pick some things up without bones snapping.
New Players: Fill out the short application by clicking "select all" and pasting into a new post. Cer will be along shortly to approve it. OP has final say on applications.

Some characters hail from their own nation; your character does not have to be the embodiment (personification) of your nation. We need to know: species, a bit of background, what sort of abilities or powers, and reason for moving into the Building. Do not sign up to play a god or god-like being without first talking with Swith Witherward.

Current Players: You still have to wait for approval if you want to bring a second character in at a later time. Please fill out the form for them so the character can be added to your IC tab. Send a TG to Swith or Cer with the OOC link.

Returning Players: This RP is much different that PL Classic. It's evolved. There's an OP and game structure.

This info is used for your character tab on the IC page. Give us URLs to pictures. We don't want the actual picture posted here. Your "Nation nickname" is what you (the player) want your tab to read. It needs to reflect your nation name. This is what readers click on when they want to know more about your characters. Do not put your own nickname here. (Example... my nation nickname is Swith and not Fractal Hacker.)

Do NOT change or add anything to the formatting in the application, please. It pisses me off because then I have to take out all your fancy coding when I work my own coding magic. Spoilers aren't necessary.

We reserve the right to deny any application.

Dramatis Personæ

Abel Lee a.k.a Iridescent
Abel has a really calm and cool attitude. No matter in what kind of situation he is in, he will always have that care-free, tardy, "go with the flow" kind of behaviour. But make no mistake. Abel often does this to trick his opponents and make them underestimate his true skills & value. From day one he would have already carefully cross-examined & analysed his new friends, allies & rivals......figuring out multiple different possible ways to counter them emotionally and physically should he face them in a battle/challenge. Abel never really shows his true weaknesses and feelings to anybody. Although he might seem really friendly, shy and awkward around people, he is in-fact really apathetic to their lives and problems. Yes he is honestly a dependable character who would always remain loyal and and faithful to his 'friends' & family. But..........when the greater good is concerned, he would never hesitate to stab them in the back or sacrifice them to eliminate a major threat. Full Details.

Shy, gentle and really bashful, Ayumi is the perfect example of a pure virgin girl who is somewhat new to the ways of the cruel and modern world. She doesn't know how to properly react to compliments and sarcasm and often hides behind Abel like a timid 8 year old kid when meeting new people. But do not underestimate her to be a very weak and easy-to-beat opponent during a battle. Her character and personality totally changes during a fight and she becomes very serious, solemn and focused. Full Details.
Captain Ozzall 'Oddball' Griffin
A Captain in the Imperial Stormtrooper Corps, Ozzall has had a successful career participating in numerous campaigns on the outer rim squashing rebellions, slaughtering insurrectionists, and fighting off the occasional underground Vong organization. Over time, his crazy tactics and what can only be described as insane, unbelievable luck and skill lead to him rising through the ranks and eventually being promoted up to Captain. After being deployed in another successful mission, some asshole deity (at least he assumes so) zapped him away from his home galaxy and to this damned run-down piece of shit building. Or, that's at least how he views it due to the lack of flying 'cars', advanced medical technology, or how these doors have hinges. He's a Clone.

An engineer for the Colicoid Creation Nest, Pryfyn is a droid designer and has created numerous military droids. Now using his stockpile of funds to travel around, he hitched a ride on an Imperial exploration fleet and has ended up on Earth. Deciding to spend some time on the amusing planet, Pryfyn has opened a shop near the apartment creating various droids (mainly military) while also taking an apartment. He also tags along on the gang's wacky adventures.
A puppet who used his strings to strangle his puppeteer. Embraced the darkness that consumes, then ate it. Full details.
[UNAUTHORIZED - ACCESS DENIED] They do have a lovely apartment, however. Full details.

He grew up most of his childhood with his sister until the Branriech Civil War, he was also one of the first generation of young boys conscripted into the reformed military at age 15. After a few years of distinguishing himself as an exemplary mechanic, he was eventually marked for death by the current High General. He escaped through an experimental teleporter and ended up in the Fallout shelter of the apartment. He married Amaryllis Volkova (Now Nikanorova) in the winter of 2012, and is now the father of Rachelle and Tolya. He runs a Non-Lethal weapons company in the city, providing non lethal solutions to cut down on needless deaths. Full details.

Born in 1989, Rylli grew up in a rural village. Her father was killed in the Soviet-Afghan conflict and her mother was killed in an auto crash a year later. Rylli then lived with her older brother who was shot down and killed in an Airforce skirmish. Having no other family, Rylli joined the Branriech Airforce and was trained as a Fighter pilot, she met Bran and fell in love with him her first year of flying. She would later defect from the Branriech and has taken up residence with Bran. She has since been kidnapped by the drone empire where she took in Rachelle Baines, a child who's parents were both killed by the drones. She has married Branson Nikanor and then became pregnant with Tolya, who was born in the summer of 2013. Full details.

Natiya Nikanor (on left, in link)
Bran's older sister was born in 1986. She was nearly conscripted into the Branriech Military along with Bran, but a quick descision from their parents saved Natiya from what would have been frontline service. They sent her to America just before their untimely demise at the hands of a firing squad, she went to college for a few years riding on the Nikanor's vast fortune before dropping out and joining a PMC before quitting that too. Now she leads a quiet life in the upper floor of the apartment. She currently lives with Aleki, although she barely sees him anymore, either just because of timing, or other causes. Full details.

Rachelle Baines
Born in 2006, Rachelle and her family were captured by the Drone Empire. During testing, her mother was presumed killed while her father protected her afterwards. During Rylli's escape, Rachelle and her father tagged along while all the other subjects were gunned down behind them. As the trio was making their way to salvation, D4 killed Rachelle's father in a fit of rage, leaving Rylli and Rachelle to board the shuttle and escape back to Earth. Not knowing the true fate of either of her parents (But knowing she won't see them again), Rachelle has tried her best to get used to Bran and Rylli as her new parents. Full details.

Kei, a goddess now living among the apartment-people, has seen it all, except for the apartment. She's had quite the rocky love-life, with a couple (Alright, more than a few) people. She's good with her powers, although she's nowhere near as powerful as some of the other gods in the building. Full Details.

Yuna and Drova
Son and daughter of the Pyersai royal family, living in Bielefeld to gain life-experiences among humans and others, Drova, the future prince, is cold and uncaring. While Yuna, his sister, is kind and caring, the perfect foil. Full Details

Toscha Inakov

Klaus' second in command, War's Cultists.

Hans' brother and avid animal lover, War's Cultists.

Unknown in age, Thaddeus Cerillium is quiet and intelligent but does have a sense of humor. He's currently employed by Swith. His primary function is classified; his secondary role is to protect Rachelle Nikanor. He carries the blessing of a god which aids him in his duties. He's ugly (even for a his people) and it doesn't bother him. He's engaged to Naomi and his children are Wren, Marcus and Eva. His appearance is similar to this however he's removed certain apparatus to better blend with the current timeline.

Marcus is Ceril's 15 year old son.

Wren is Ceril's older daughter. Co-owner of Vital-Wrench with Barox.

God of Plagues and Death. Ogoti is also a god of rebirth and healing. (Indian Set)

Chloe is bookish and a damn good healer. She plays the cello. She makes those little puff pastries that you see at fancy parties, you know... the ones that just melt on the tongue? She's so prim and proper, and very sweet. Her laughter is like silver bells in a gentle breeze. It's absolutely infectious and brings joy to the heart.

*This is a SHARED PC with Swith Witherward*

Dr. Arthur Von Eldritch

Nevvie Von Eldritch
Guess what? Another Clone of Neil! Nevvie was created to help in the lab. Although female and a hybrid of Raptor and Human biology, Nevvie has only half the strength and speed of a raptor but all the intelligence.

Vital Information - Sovereign-State and City of Bielefeld

PostPosted: Wed Aug 14, 2013 5:18 pm
by Swith Witherward

The Sovereign-State of Bielefeld

Bielefeld has its own government as well as a city government and stands independent much like Monaco.

The City of Bielefeld

The City of Bielefeld was constructed after the third Drone invasion devastated the old city (Vaffelhelm). There are generic places around town: cinemas, libraries, grocery stores, arcades, golf courses, museums, etc.
  1. Location of Building. It's bordered by the woods and near the ocean. There are parks and schools, a bank, and a small pizza joint nearby. Neil and Gretta's house sits next door.
  2. Strip District. The Chaos Restaurant, Mei Garden and other restaurant spots are located here. It is upscale and multicultural, with a fine arts gallery and various top-of-the-line stores. A memorial wall for those who perished in natural disasters or invasions, including the two Conservators lost during the Drone invasion, sits in Memorial Park at Ocean Point. It has a massive giraffe statue.
  3. Industrial District. Location of most of the industry, to include Quantum Automotive, Nikanor Non-Lethal Solutions, and Trinodyne Industries. This area has working docks, is near the airport and is the access point for the small yacht club's island. The river is a working river for shipping trade inland.
  4. Bielefeld Observatory sits high atop Cerillium hill. It is open to the public but those interested in using the facilities for research must pay for time on the telescope.
  5. Bielefeld International Airport.
  6. Bielefeld State Park. Good spot for relaxing.
  7. Lake Pearlelei
  8. Agricultural district. Foods Conglomerate can be found here.
  9. Bielefeld Military Installation. Contains barracks and the sub base. The airfield and training centers, and other installations, are not on this portion of the map. It is off limits to civilians.
  10. Primordials' coral reef.
  11. Vaffelhelm ruins. Wasteland. A land barrier prevents the curious from entering. It is still smoldering, and the undercity contains many of the deadly traps that Chaos hasn't bothered to remove. There are rumors that the cultists use it as a playground.
  12. Downtown. Black-Star Industries, the Bielefeld Hospital and Renegade Private Military Company can be found here. The Catholic Cathedral, financial institutions, and other major businesses are located within. The seat of the government and city hall sit in the heart of it. Museums, theatres, fine arts galleries, zoo and aquarium.


Business Directory

Most of these businesses owned by characters.
It's a bank around the corner. That is all.
An Observatory high atop Cerillium Hill on the edge of town.
Co-owned by two Chaos gods and located directly across the street from the Building, Chaos is an upscale restaurant during the day, a club at night. Waitstaff are all NPCs (demons, succubi, incubi, etc) in human disguise. Staff include a Head Chef (Cuisine) and a Breakfast Chef (Bran) as well as a bartender (Superbia). The building is indestructible given that it's in its own little pocket universe. It's a neutral zone; magic and combat inside is not allowed. Description here.
Sometimes seen, but often not, these provide delivery service to the Building. They also provide deliverymen who end up eaten by certain residents.
Owned by Pryfyn, this shop contains various droids (mainly military) which are designed and created on site.
Defender Civic Security is a private security agency formed by Raymond Jansma in 2013. As the name suggests, it is a well-funded but moderately sized company responsible for providing policing services to paying customers, hosting an investigative division, patrol division, aerial division and specialized response division.
Located in the Industrial District, Eldritch Medical supplies medical equipment, and manufactures prosthetic limbs, artificial organs, cosmetic cybernetic upgrades and organ transplants. Details
A large fish market occupies half a block off of Main Blvd in the Market District. It has an open-air area where massive tuna, sword fish and other delights are placed whole on mounds of ice. The local restaurants, including Chaos, send their head chef daily to pick out the evening’s fish specials. it's a very noisy and busy place. A mural dedicated to MB can be found on the brick wall next to the salmon monger.
The ACF, or Aksarben Containment Foundation, is an ultra-secret organization under the direct control of the Aksarben government. No one besides the Royal Family, the members of the organization, and the uppermost levels of government know of it's existence. It's purpose is to contain and/or destroy things that would go against understood physics and things that have extremely anomalous properties. They begun transporting some of those objects to the Earth that the Apartment exists on, using a secure containment facility underneath their fronts in that universe, the Foods Conglomerate of Aksarben. That includes both their farming complex, and their HQ within the city itself.
The model store appears small from the outside, with the clear wording of "Herb's Model Emporium" written across the tan wooden sign. A single window is near the door and it showcases a few boxes of model planes. A small board sits on the door right above the sign listing the operating hours of the store, which held chalk writing that listed recent additions to the store's supply. Details
Run by Marie-Claire Toussaint, a "voodoo" seer. "Sometimes I see things beyond sight. Sometimes I see only de heart. I know where you go and where you come from." The glass window outside the shop appears caked with smoke. The main room is always cast in warm light, and scarves shroud tables and lamps. Everything seems to be shades of red, or shades of black, but other colors find their way in and stand out in sharp contrast like dandelions on a manicured lawn. The thick smell of incense and spices hangs in the air. Small rodent and cat skulls and beads hang in garlands from the ceiling and doorways, and festoon table tops. The shop is only open for business when Swith is online. It is located in the Strip District.
A traditional Japanese restaurant and tea house located in the Strip District
It's a park nearby dedicated to all those who have lost their lives during the various disasters and invasions. There's a wall of names. A single tree stands in the very center to commemorate the loss of the Conservators killed in the last invasion.
The Ministry of Public Transportation provide a variety of options for citizens and visitors alike. High speed trains offer convenience to commuters. The main railway station is downtown but there are stations scattered along the line. It covers the outer area of the city before moving on to other parts of the sovereign state.

There's also a subway system for local commutes in the inner core. This system mainly covers the market district, downtown district, industrial district and loops through the residential areas. It's restricted to just the city of Bielefeld. There are some tunnels made for defense purposes but those dark areas aren't accessible.

In addition, there are buses and cabs.

The market district has an old-fashioned streetcar that travels back and forth on the main street (no other vehicles are permitted on that coastal road.)
Located in the Industrial District, NNLS is owned by Bran Nikanor. It's where TF guns are manufactured.
Owned by Cornelius Thriller and operated by a temporary board of directors during this absence, QAF is one of the leading producers of vehicles in the nation.
Closed for the season.
Shencheng, specializing in Shanghai cuisine, especially seafood. Primarily an informal lunch place.
Specializing in advanced robotics research and development.
"Making parts for people and pets!" Vitel-Wrench is co-owned by Vitellius Barox and Wren Cerillium. They manufacture replacement organs and appendages. Pioneers in genetic research, Vitel-Wrench is known for their research into detecting and curing Trisomy disorders, especially Trisomy 13.
A traditional Irish pub run by Minerva's lads is located east of the building on Subabsurdus. A small street (Slack St.) runs off from this street and the Tavern is tucked neatly between an insurance agency and a pharmacy.
A favorite haunt of Fortu and Monique, Wu's Diamond Garden provides a variety of excellent Chinese fare... just don't look too closely at the waitstaff. Location: Strip District.

Vital Information - The Building

PostPosted: Wed Aug 14, 2013 5:21 pm
by Swith Witherward
The Building
42nd Subabsurdus Street, Bielefeld

Current location of our madness. It's bigger on the inside than on the outside and it seems to heal itself. The interior construction appears differently to each resident (tile vs wood floors vs carpet, metal staircases vs concrete vs wood) etc. Rent is paid via a small box in the lobby (near the reception desk). No one knows where your envelope goes once you slip it into the box. The landlord, O.C. Demens, hardly ever makes an appearance. New tenants will usually find their contract and a key at the reception desk.

Common Areas
This is where everybody seems to flock, including those with apartments that have kitchens. Breakfast is usually waffles and omelets.
A full description can be found here. It's right off the communal dining room and kitchen, on the opposite side of the hall and easy to reach once someone came up the stairs from the lobby. The furniture was appropriated from a warehouse store, the decor came from various portals, and the massive 90" Aquos LED TV was affixed to the wall in a fashion that didn't permit it to be stolen (or stolen back by the cultist that Naomi had borrowed it from.) There was a piano, plenty of leather couches, an extra table for workspace, comfy leather chairs and a bar area. (Residents would need to provide their own booze.) A smaller tv is on other side of the room for game consoles.
These are the front and back yards. Used for Zalgofests, combat, snowball fighs and who knows what else. It has a shed in the back which most residents avoid for good reason.
Recently discovered by NVE, the gym is off the lobby on the first floor. It's a communal area where people can work out. There's an indoor pool, spa and steam room.
Hallways. People roam them. Some people lurk in them. They have shadows to hide in.
It has books. Donate some.
Ground floor when you first enter the building. It has mailboxes by the front door (we never see the mailman but there's mail), a check in desk, a bench, an alcove with a payphone booth. It leads upstairs to the communal kitchen/dining room and rooms.
There is an in-ground outdoor pool located in the backyard for summer fun as well as an in-ground indoor pool inside. The entrance for this pool is on the first floor.
It's a roof. It's at the top of the building. It's used for gazing at the night sky, defending the building (weapons seem to change at the drop of a hat), housing Bran's helicopter, and a quiet place to drink. Stairs lead up to it from the inside.

Not So Common Areas and Other Information
Rooms: Some residents are cheap bastards and only rent rooms. They use the communal dining room and kitchen for their meals.

Apartments: Units that have full kitchens, bedrooms, and living space.
Cunning residents build secret labs in all sorts of odd places. They really aren't secret since everyone knows about them.
For whatever ungodly reason, some residents utilize tunnels and air vents to get around. Expect them to drop in anywhere at any time.
Some apartments exist in their own little universe and can not be penetrated by outside sources. These would include Bones & Co's apartment, and The Chaos Dimension (security system begins at the stairwell entrance door in the lobby). Don't try. You'll only become frustrated... or die.
Things your characters would know since they live in the building...

The Chaos Restaurant is heavily protected. The outer appearance is just a thin veneer mixed with illusion. People walking in the front door enter a pocket universe. When under attack, the door closes and the restaurant pinches off from the current universe. This is a neutral zone.

The apartment Building heals itself, but some apartments inside also skip out of the current dimension and can NOT be entered.

The building rooftop is set up to defend the building (Tsu and Dab have put guns there before so I'm sure those are still in place). There's a massive rail gun in the back yard that GT's tech priests built for the last invasion; it doubles as an organ. A force field can be quickly placed to further protect the building. (It defeats magical/god powered attacks. It defeats nano, mechanical and supernatural infiltration. This came into play during the last invasion. It forms a sphere around the area, roughly ten blocks wide but it can be scaled back so it doesn't hinder a story too much. Conventional weapons won't affect it.)

Various characters have close ties to their nation's military. Tsu and Bran have both called in their forces for support in the past. Ceril's nation is backed by CSMs and Dark Mechanicum... FT, with all the firepower found in 40K plus Chaos gods. Bones also has an advanced military. Swith's is bio-based FFT; they destroy planets instead of wage ground/air battles... no one here wants them to spore!

There are more defenses... you'll encounter them as you go.
Wait until a player is online before breaking into their character's apartment.

Other Haunts

These are established areas outside Bielefeld where players RP as a group for holidays or vacations.
The Planet:
Gliese 581 is the Germanic Templars home world. It's set in a future timeline and not in the same solar system, obviously. It was used to house all characters after the Drone invasion and we might return there as a group at a future time.

Here is GT's description...

The Setting:

Throne Room
Equivalent of the Lobby, where you would enter with a throne in it. Did I mention there was a throne in it? Stay off the Emperor's Thinking Bench.

Located off to the right of the Throne room. Specifically past the first door on your right. Books vary between old paper and leather back to modern pads that read the book to you (now your child too can read and listen to Shakespeare's Macbeth). By the way, it's a huge library with tower stairs leading up to the second floor as well as a balcony that over looks the lower part of the library.

Palace Dining Room
Not much other than it's a huge frikken dining room with plenty to sit. On the left side of the building (assuming if you were looking at it from the front).

Recreational area
In the back of the building. Includes a dojo and from there it breaks off into a pool/spa area off to the left, weight room to the right, and Virtual Simulation room directly across the dojo.

Living area
Right side of the building where there are a labyrinth of hallways and rooms.

The place that is two miles long and lays out front of the palace pass it's walls. With it are a Ch'as, a few kiosks and stores, and directly across is a parking garage for air vehicles.

Side note
Doors are automatic unless locked. Lights tend to come on down the hallway or room you enter, and kitchen is pretty much off limits since food is either brought to your room or to the dining room (And by food I do not mean the people bringing it). In the far back of the building there is a nice garden.

The Background:
Gliese 581 is the Templar's home world. Cornelius Thriller is their emperor. The people know him in his mech suit form. This is a fully-fleshed planet, meaning the player has taken the time to set up culture, areas for fun or industry or various religions whatever. You can only visit with GT's permission.

The Rules:
1) No tech stealing. You can ask to trade tech. GT has to agree to it.
2) Absolutely respect the property of the nation.
3) ASK GT before doing something that can change Germanic Templar canon.
4) Big one... it's a future setting on a planet far away. No bringing in militaries.
5) GT functions as a Co-OP while players are on his planet. His decisions on what can or can't be done must be followed. He has the right to ask people to REDACT if they do something that violates his canon, culture or concept.

The island is located far off the coast of [REDACTED]. The shoreline has pristine beaches although there are cliffs on the opposite side. The majority of people have huts along the beach although the raptors claim the volcano base and Swith has her compound offshore (it can be reached by wading through the shallows to her atoll. There is a large pavilion near the huts (Bran and Rylli were married there) and the Germanic Templars have a small factory of sorts. There is also a large fire pit area where the group gathers for luaus or music (or ghost stories) in the evenings.

The interior of the island has dense vegetation. The ground rises steadily upward to a small, dormant volcano.

The island is used as a holiday getaway and for other vacations.

Tsu first suggested we make one to get away from the 2012 winter doldrums.

Tributes, Quirky Stuff and Nonsense

You helped shape us. For that, I'm grateful. ~ Cerillium
Swith Witherward wrote:The evening sky on Gliese was peppered with stars. Swith, who had gone on vacation with her mate and children, slipped from bed and opened the French doors leading out to the balcony. The palace below was still in celebration. Swith's eyes weren't on them, though. She looked up at the stars and drew a shuddering breath.

It was a silent keen that traveled on a plain that no mortals could hear. It was a greeting and a goodbye wrapped in a gossamer strand that couldn't be broken by mortals or gods or even the Greater Beings. It was a patient and gentle understanding buoyed by her gratitude and admiration for a foe who had, in a sense, become a cherished entity in her world.

She stood silently amongst the sounds of revelry and joy from below, and she wept tears that were neither sad or happy. They were simply tears, and they fell from her eyes and landed on her chest without any further preamble.

"Farewell," she whispered to the stars. Her mind reflected upon octopus and pizza parlors, replicants and tea with scones. She sighed and her head tilted as she keened again. And then, because there wasn't anything left to do, she stepped inside and closed the door to block out the noise for a while.

Transgravitas Directorate wrote:The strains of Rachmaninoff's Prelude in C# Minor echoed throughout the darkly lit ether of Cuisine's apartment. He and Luce sat together over beers, toasting an honorable acquaintance and an enigmatic mind. They spoke of Aetherians and shards, of yachts and cars, and of sand and sea. Conversation intermingled with the hopeful beginning, haunting progression, and chaotic climax. Dim blue and green highlights from the wall panel displays gave them tranquility, however, and the hope that things would someday be better.

And finally, as the closing notes brought the piece to an end, the pair sat in silence.

Cerillium wrote:Ceril navigated the business end of the soldering iron between fine wires coupled to an old circuit board. The white hot light flared and briefly illuminated his face and the face of the servator next to him. He sighed and examined his work.

Not bad. Needs more. Possibly -

He yawned and removed the iron from the confines of the cabinet. "Needs more later. It's late as it is."

The servator, a replica of the D7-N1-X8 blinked stupidly at him. She could never replace the actual thing she was copied from. "It is late," she said.

"No shit. I just said that."


Ceril rubbed the skin under his optics and groaned. "Go dock, Mavis 12."

He watched the drone clone gracefully cross the workroom to join her "sisters". He'd done many things with those clones - dressing them in hula outfits or programming them to sing show tunes - but he'd never lost respect for the beings who fashioned the original Mavis.

The old cyborg checked his work a final time and walked from the workroom. His hand paused on the light switch. "Goodnight ladies."

"Good night," they replied in unison as the overhead flickered off.

From OP Cer:
Thanks, man. Thanks for making our world richer. It's been a pleasure and an honor gaming with you. You're gonna be making a difference no matter where life takes you. Good luck in Basic.

From Co-OP Tilt:
You've been a solid sort here in PL, and you'll be a solid sort in Basic - so no need to tell you not to let the bastards grind you down. You've got that covered already. Stay frosty and you'll be back laughing it up with us 'fore we know it. Best red.

From Co-OP Swith:
*crying* Can't type. Can't see keys. Seriously, though... we'll miss you. I'll miss you. You've been a good friend and it's always hard when friends ship out. We made a lot of good memories together and shared a lot of laughter. So, this isn't goodbye. It's just "farewell until we meet again." And remember... you don't want to eat BT mud. It's nasty.

Yes, we have one.
"I Can't Decide"

It's not easy having yourself a good time
Greasing up those bets and betters
Watching out they don't four-letter
Fuck and kiss you both at the same time
Smells-like something I've forgotten
Curled up died and now it's rotten

I'm not a gangster tonight
Don't want to be a bad guy
I'm just a loner baby
And now you're gotten in my way

I can't decide
Whether you should live or die
Oh, you'll probably go to heaven
Please don't hang your head and cry
No wonder why
My heart feels dead inside
It's cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We're going for a ride

It's a bitch convincing people to like you
If I stop now call me a quitter
If lies were cats you'd be a litter
Pleasing everyone isn't like you
Dancing jigs until I'm crippled
Slug ten drinks I won't get pickled

I've got to hand it to you
You've played by all the same rules
It takes the truth to fool me
And now you've made me angry

I can't decide
Whether you should live or die
Oh, you'll probably go to heaven
Please don't hang your head and cry
No wonder why
My heart feels dead inside
It's cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We're going for a ride

Oh I could throw you in the lake
Or feed you poisoned birthday cake
I wont deny I'm gonna miss you when you're gone
Oh I could bury you alive
But you might crawl out with a knife
And kill me when I'm sleeping
That's why

I can't decide
Whether you should live or die
Oh, you'll probably go to heaven
Please don't hang your head and cry
No wonder why
My heart feels dead inside
It's cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We're going for a ride

(Thank you, NVE!)
Need you ask? Summoned by Bones and Swith deep in the Lair, Zalgo causes all current story lines to pause for the duration of the Festival.

Two friends decide to fight back,

These unlikely heroes, one a goddess of lust and hedonism,

the other a genetically engineered god-killer,

must join forces to do the impossible..

*rapid montage of scenes from Zalgofest*

and save their friends from this horrible fate...

Double the action,


Triple the excitement,

More the excitement,

This time, you really won't know what hit you.

More or less in order from least to most recent...the relationships...

OOC is not a *squee and snug* thread. It's an OOC thread for working out issues, and clarifying the IC thread. Our OOC also doubles as a player mentoring area where we encourage questions and critique regarding RP techniques in general.

RPers come to PL for the same reason people go to bars. It's where everybody knows your name.

Not quite as friendly as a good small Okie town, what with all the shady characters hanging about :p

No big secret. Just lots and lots of yogurt.

I'm going to try un/re-install of Firefox. My system is locking up. Tilt can move Swith (and Ogoti).
