Good afternoon/evening, PL! Coming back from the land of the dead; I should be free for....half of this week, if not most of it. Still got projects and AP course work, but I can pull through to be with you guys. I can't just let Zark replace me.

In any case, reading on through the IC right about now. Is everyone doing alright?

Fine, though having to change seats is frustrating. *Mutters something profane as he moves from the seat marked "Eru" to a seat in some distant, dark corner of the OoC thread*

Yeah, but the more confused the chronology gets, the more confused I get. Best to keep that in the minimum so I can keep confusing other people.

Okay, here is my app.

Your NS Nation's Nickname:
Democratic Confederation of the Carlisle
Character Name:
Kale Merilin
Character Gender:
Female
Character Species (nation personification, human, alien, etc):
Human
Character Physical Description (height, weight, apparent age, actual age):
Height: 4'8'
Weight: 100lbs
Apparent age: 13
Actual Age: 17
URL to Character Picture, if any:
Image


(12 points to spend, no single power over 8. FLAWS must be applied to characters with powers)
Physical Attributes (if any above normal mortal human):
END: 3
Character Unique Skills(if any):
Gardening: 1
Character Powers (if any):
Plant Manipulation: 8
Character Weaknesses/Flaws:
Lacking in physical attributes
FLAW: Reckless. Overdoes things. Often causes 'Unforeseen Consequences' like raging plant minions or rampant uncontrolled growth. Possibly gets more paradox when it is gained.
Character Background/Biography:
Born and raised in Confederation (short name for my nation IC), the wooded hippy paradise. Kale learned she had powers at a young age when she accidentally turned the family acacia tree into a treant. Both shocked and awed by the power she displayed at her age, she was immediately sent to Roseward Academy for the Magically Gifted. There is where she lived for the rest of her time in Confederation. Though powerful, she was intellectually inept. She would take hours to learn the simplest of manipulations. But she eventually learned. She was at the bottom rung when it came to grades, but nobody had a doubt in their mind that she was the most powerful manipulator in the Academy.

Kale herself is a colorful person. She is absentminded and ditsy, forgetting tasks, names, and sometime basic functions. She is clumsy, no sense of balance at all. She is reckless, never thinking of the consequences and often overdoes things. Shes also not very smart, slow to learn things and often screws up. But she is friendly, kind, and open. She loves friends and would die for them. She loves experimenting, even with her subpar intellect. This often causes "Unforeseen Consequences" but sometimes there is a breakthrough. She is diligent and determines when she sets her mind to something. She likes gardening, even if she is an amateur at it. Like her people, she prefers not to wear clothing. She only wears it when out in public only to not shock others. She is an big environmentalist and a vegan. She is naive to big city life.

She likes nature, the outdoors, friends, people, and experimenting with her powers. Her favorite food is quinoa.

Why the character is in Bielefeld/Occupation:
Running away from the Academy. Didn't like how the Academy was restricting her from experimenting (even though they were right in doing so). Most would say she was going through a rebellious phase. She doesn't know what she'll do in Bielefeld.

IMPORTANT:
One paragraph that sums up your character. This paragraph is what we'll use on your player tab on the first page of the thread. This MUST be brief. Your tab will contain a link to your application so people will have full details:

Kale is a ditsy, clumsy, but incredibly powerful plant manipulator. While not showing the utmost skill and discipline, she can turn you into fertilizer. She is friendly and caring though, showing much love to friends, even willing to die for them. She loves to experiment with her powers, even if it causes "Unforeseen Consequences". Doesn't help that she is not the brightest bulb in the box. Far from her woody homeland, Kale is new to Bielefeld and big city life in general.

Cer will want examples of what you mean by plant manipulation. Is it akin to Poison Ivy where plants can suddenly explode into attacking tendrils, etc?

Here's the email:

On Wednesday night, law enforcement officials contacted Kickstarter and alerted us that hackers had sought and gained unauthorized access to some of our customers' data. Upon learning this, we immediately closed the security breach and began strengthening security measures throughout the Kickstarter system.

No credit card data of any kind was accessed by hackers. There is no evidence of unauthorized activity of any kind on your account.

While no credit card data was accessed, some information about our customers was. Accessed information included usernames, email addresses, mailing addresses, phone numbers, and encrypted passwords. Actual passwords were not revealed, however it is possible for a malicious person with enough computing power to guess and crack an encrypted password, particularly a weak or obvious one.

As a precaution, we strongly recommend that you change the password of your Kickstarter account, and other accounts where you use this password.

To change your password, log in to your account at Kickstarter.com and look for the banner at the top of the page to create a new, secure password. We recommend you do the same on other sites where you use this password. For additional help with password security, we recommend tools like 1Password and LastPass.

We’re incredibly sorry that this happened. We set a very high bar for how we serve our community, and this incident is frustrating and upsetting. We have since improved our security procedures and systems in numerous ways, and we will continue to do so in the weeks and months to come. We are working closely with law enforcement, and we are doing everything in our power to prevent this from happening again.

Kickstarter is a vibrant community like no other, and we can’t thank you enough for being a part of it. Please let us know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. You can reach us at accountsecurity@kickstarter.com.

Thank you,

Two definitions to explain this:

Crowdfunding is when a company asks a crowd of people to donate money in order to allow that product to exist. The company is typically independent, and could not afford to do it otherwise--or else they're a company who are trying to find out how viable an idea is, in which case they'll typically only ask backers for a portion of the total cost.

Kickstarter is, by far, the most popular Crowdfunding website out there.

I'm sure others can explain it better, but Kickstarter is essentially a website that offers companies the opportunity to reach out to potential consumers and ask them for money in return for delivering a product. For example, I could go to Kickstarter and tell people that I want to make socks, but I need a certain amount of money in order to afford power for the equipment to mass-produce them. People give me the x-total of money, and I deliver them with socks being available for purchase (and usually a bonus for backing me, such as a free pair of socks).
