Plains was pretty awesome. Saw some oil paintings by President Carter. Also, I got a yo-yo and harmonica!

And I was making Donn knotts impressions in a restaraunt bathroom to make my friends laugh, and I didn't realize that there was another person on there. I couldn't stop laughing.

Cer's schedule is really crappy this week. I've posted the link to your app on his "honey-do" list (first page of the OOC) so we all don't lose track of it. If you don't hear back, it's simply because he has either logged in just long enough to check TG for Mentor questions, or else hasn't logged in at all.

Well, thank you :)

Heads up on Carnival, since it came up in the IRC...

Anything done between characters will remain.

Example 1:
Nick was burned by Amanda. Amanda is a real character, even if in dragon form. Nick is going to be singed when he leaves the carnival. 2nd degree burns, IIRC?

Example 2:
Sep was smacked around by Ophelia. He won't have any marks or bruises on him when he leaves (although the memory and emotional response will remain).

If a PC has sex with an NPC/illusion/imaginary figure, no problem (except any emotional attachments formed with it, or possibly guilt).
If a PC has sex with another PC of the opposite gender, they may find out that the female is pregnant. If one partner has a disease... well, welcome to the fun world of STDs!

PCs, if very active (beyond normal) will probably leave feeling sore from all their playing around, like spending a hard, fun day at an amusement park. If they fell down and skinned their knees, they can wish themselves healed, but the knees will bleed once outside.

That's the carnival caveat.

Booze:
Toscha's tail will be healed (damaged caused by imaginary creature). However, going by how much alcohol some of the "inexperienced" teens drank in a short amount of time (and having drunk similar levels myself), I can tell you that at least two of them (Kale and Toscha) will walk out and find themselves drunk... a "staggering and puking their way home" kind of drunk.

The food and drink sold at booths is real food and drink.

Is it thread tradition!

I am the very model of a modern Major-General,
I've information vegetable, animal, and mineral,
I know the kings of England, and I quote the fights historical,
From Marathon to Waterloo, in order categorical;
I'm very well acquainted too with matters mathematical,
I understand equations, both the simple and quadratical,
About binomial theorem I'm teeming with a lot o' news---
With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse.

I'm very good at integral and differential calculus,
I know the scientific names of beings animalculous;
In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral,
I am the very model of a modern Major-General.

I know our mythic history, King Arthur's and Sir Caradoc's,
I answer hard acrostics, I've a pretty taste for paradox,
I quote in elegiacs all the crimes of Heliogabalus,
In conics I can floor peculiarities parablous.
I can tell undoubted Raphaels from Gerard Dows and Zoffanies,
I know the croaking chorus from the Frogs of Aristophanes,
Then I can hum a fugue of which I've heard the music's din afore,
And whistle all the airs from that infernal nonsense Pinafore.

Then I can write a washing bill in Balylonic cuneiform,
And tell you every detail of Caractacus's uniform;
In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral,
I am the very model of a modern Major-General.

In fact, when I know what is meant by "mamelon" and "ravelin",
When I can tell at sight a chassepôt rifle from a javelin,
When such affairs as sorties and surprises I'm more wary at,
And when I know precisely what is meant by "commissariat",
When I have learnt what progress has been made in modern gunnery,
When I know more of tactics than a novice in a nunnery:
In short, when I've a smattering of elemental strategy,
You'll say a better Major-General has never sat a gee---

For my military knowledge, though I'm plucky and adventury,
Has only been brought down to the beginning of the century;
But still in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral,
I am the very model of a modern Major-General.


Move along now citizen. There's nothing to see here.

Do not remove this search tag: #PLAPP
Your NS Nation's Nickname: Fraire

Character Name: Alister Vanderbilt

Character Gender: Male

Character Species (nation personification, human, alien, etc): Human (usually)

Character Physical Description
  • Actual age: 20-something years old
  • Everything else: Varies

URL to Character Picture, if any: wears this suit and this mask

Primary Skill or Power: Shape-shifting

Power Weaknesses/Flaws: Sometimes screws up (trying to turn into a bear, but instead turns into a dog or something)

Secondary Skill or Power: psychometry/ telepathy

Power Weaknesses/Flaws: can't really control ability well/ barely works

Character Background/Biography: Alister is an escapee from a secret minimum security prison/laboratory. He was sent there at the age of sixteen for committing the heinous crime of tearing a "Do Not Remove" tag off a mattress. Little did people know that evil scientists and corrupt law enforcers were taking the criminals (and a few innocent people, too) and performing horrible (but not that horrible) experiments to test if shampoos, and other various products, were safe. Many were not. A lot of the guinea pigs that were involved mutated and/or gained strange powers. Luckily for Alister, the guards were grossly incompetent and he had mutated and/or gained strange powers. After two long years trapped in that horrible prison, he finally escaped after punching a guard until he gave Alister the combination to the locked door. He soon escaped. This was in 1980-something. Logically, he would be 38. However, the guards were smarter than he thought and tricked him into stepping into an experimental time vortex. It caused him to go many years into the future. Luckily, he was a smart individual and soon caught on to all the technology and ways of speaking and such. He soon came to the town of Bielefeld that he had heard so little about.

Why the character is in Bielefeld/Occupation: Time travel and magic science-y portals

URL to Apartment Picture: this is in one side of the room while this, this, and this are on the other side of the room

Link to RP examples: a bunch of posts from an RP I was once in

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: Alister is an escapee from a secret prison/laboratory. While being secretly tested on, he gained the abilities of shape-shifting, (weak) psychic powers, and being able to glow in the dark (for some reason). Now, he mostly reads/writes books and does (secret) science experiments as a hobby in his apartment room.

For everyone who wants to use IRC on their mobile phones, if you need help setting up HoloIRC (available on Android devices) please see the steps below:

1. After installing and opening HoloIRC, you will see a plus sign inside a circle in the upper right corner. This is to add a new server to your serverlist. There's a couple of defaults already to the left that you'll see that come with the app. Click the plus sign.

2. Enter the following information:
  • Server Title: The Apartment Block (this is for you, so you know which server to start up when you open the appl)
  • Server URL: use whatever Esper.net server is closest to you (for California: ranger.esper.net, for Texas: chaos.esper.net, etc)
  • Server Port: 6697
  • Nick Names: [your IRC name to show when you log in]
  • Real Name: [actual name, not sure what this does, but it never shows up]
  • Username: [your user name, in case you're a mod like Swith, Tilt, or Cer]
  • Password: [optional, only if you have a username]

3. Enable "Use SSL" and "Accept all SSL certificates". DO THIS OR YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO LOG IN

4. Click "Auto-join channels" and click the plus button that appears in the upper right-hand corner of the new screen. Add "#TAB" to the auto-join channel list.

5. You're done! Go back to the main screen and you should see The Apartment Block added to your server list. Simply click to connect, and you'll log in automatically.

On logging out:

1. To log out from the channel but stay on the server (if, let's say, you want to log into a different channel, though that's not very relevant for Apartment Block's IRC), simply click the "Actions" button in the upper right corner of the channel and scroll down and click the "Part channel" button. This will log you off the channel.

2. To log out from the server, which is the only way to log in from any other device, swipe left and select "The Apartment Block" (you're currently in a channel if you see anyone typing away). While in the Apartment Block, you should see a bunch of links and nonsense as well as the words "End of /MOTD command". This means you're in the server, not a channel. To log out from a server, simply click "Actions" and click "Disconnect". This will log you out from the server.

IMPORTANT: Make sure you have a stable connection. If you're logging on and off constantly, it might be best to disable any options you have for automatically switching between Wifi and 4G (I always use 4G to ensure a smooth connection, and it doesn't take up that much data anyways). Any switches on network or from network to roaming data will result in you being kicked off the server and forced to reconnect under a new nickanme due to your old connection not yet timing out.

Thanks, and happy IRCing!

PL isn't as light as it was several threads ago. I'd like to see more depth on him, as well as a bit of believability. Who was he before the arrest? What sort of place does he hail from where removal of a tag is punishable by imprisonment and experimentation? What kind of scientist is he and what experiments does he conduct? Why does he wear a mask? What types of books does he write?

IIRC the last time, you'd post but keep the character mainly isolated, posting only sporadically. The character would need to interact more. I've culled post spam.

Provided he doesn't go higher than the Tower of Doom. The magic ends there. He'll plummet back to the earth in normal form if he goes higher than it.

It initial shock from falling might give him sensory overload. It's why beginning skydivers sometimes struggle with opening the ripcord. Their boggled brains can't think clearly enough.

I can see that, I get the same way too. I'll keep that in mind, though Toscha's just stationkeeping above the carnival really.

For everyone who wants to use IRC on their mobile phones, if you need help setting up HoloIRC (available on Android devices) please see the steps below:

1. After installing and opening HoloIRC, you will see a plus sign inside a circle in the upper right corner. This is to add a new server to your serverlist. There's a couple of defaults already to the left that you'll see that come with the app. Click the plus sign.

2. Enter the following information:
  • Server Title: The Apartment Block (this is for you, so you know which server to start up when you open the appl)
  • Server URL: chaos.esper.net
  • Server Port: 6697
  • Nick Names: [your IRC name to show when you log in]
  • Real Name: [actual name, not sure what this does, but it never shows up]
  • Username: [your user name, in case you're a mod like Swith, Tilt, or Cer]
  • Password: [optional, only if you have a username]

3. Enable "Use SSL" and "Accept all SSL certificates". DO THIS OR YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO LOG IN

4. Click "Auto-join channels" and click the plus button that appears in the upper right-hand corner of the new screen. Add "#TAB" to the auto-join channel list.

5. You're done! Go back to the main screen and you should see The Apartment Block added to your server list. Simply click to connect, and you'll log in automatically.

On logging out:

1. To log out from the channel but stay on the server (if, let's say, you want to log into a different channel, though that's not very relevant for Apartment Block's IRC), simply click the "Actions" button in the upper right corner of the channel and scroll down and click the "Part channel" button. This will log you off the channel.

2. To log out from the server, which is the only way to log in from any other device, swipe left and select "The Apartment Block" (you're currently in a channel if you see anyone typing away). While in the Apartment Block, you should see a bunch of links and nonsense as well as the words "End of /MOTD command". This means you're in the server, not a channel. To log out from a server, simply click "Actions" and click "Disconnect". This will log you out from the server.

IMPORTANT: Make sure you have a stable connection. If you're logging on and off constantly, it might be best to disable any options you have for automatically switching between Wifi and 4G (I always use 4G to ensure a smooth connection, and it doesn't take up that much data anyways). Any switches on network or from network to roaming data will result in you being kicked off the server and forced to reconnect under a new nickanme due to your old connection not yet timing out.

Thanks, and happy IRCing!

So much win.

I've added this to a tab under Quirky Stuff. Thanks for taking the time to write it out, Agy!


You're welcome. Hopefully this will get more people on IRC so planning out posts is easier. Gets a little lonely in chat, too, at times :P
