Send in the Pinkertons.

Two days until the venue change? Eh, I'm still just itching for it. I'd like to get things going :p

On another note, I've been in a really strange mood today.

It comes down to trusting players. The classic PL didn't have minions. We had raptor clones, but the raptors did their own work and the clone became a character. *nods* Likewise, Scarface is a character.

I've been wracking my brain trying to figure out how I'm going to drop them. Losing Agents are easy because they are just Raptors I don't focus on. Minions in all shapes and forms are gonna be hard to completely lose but not impossible. I'm settling on just having them stop working due to the setting change rendering several principals Raptors rely on for technology inert. And I'm also gonna drop a lot of rooms along the way to scale down the house.

Everyone has so far, really. I'm challenging everyone to delve deeper, to alleviate the "dunnos" for the eternal "what do you want to do?" question.

It's really made me rethink characters. I think I'll knock myself down to two for now to be completely honest. Running a lot takes a lot and none of them get out there as much so no sense having them collect dust.

We're shifting over to a fully character-based game stuffed with opportunity for adventures. Minions would work for a faction game but, since the focus is on only characters and getting them integrated into the new setting, minions strip away opportunities from characters.

In truth, I'd much rather see Neil working on SCIENCE!!! than just reading a post about something minions are making. I've missed those posts so much. Like the suitcase posts when he was going at it with Bones. Those were the best.

And supplies are going to be limited, which means characters will need to get out and about in order to accomplish simple stuff. Neil and Tora could go on adventures together, seeking things to fix the lab, etc.

I get the direction and agree with it, it's just that for a few days I've been plotting how to get from point A to point C instead of point B that I've plotted to go last month.

As long as you're not playing the characters, you don't have to app them, I think. The head-start on the apps right now will be for characters who will be making the immediate jump to PL Epic, while the rest will be parked until you're ready to app them and use them. If you don't want to play certain characters because you can't come up with reasonable goals, then they can stay indefinitely parked.

Cer keeps telling him to accept CoOPship. :p

Yep, that's how we'll roll on characters. People will need to look at this old OOC for the full roster. I'm working on tabs but I'm only adding those characters with apps. This will help us all track who has an app and who doesn't.

Cer's giving a grace period for CoOP tool characters if only because we're all bogged down with the changeover.

Teaser!


Image
The Forging of Gallimaufry



Image

By now, all the others who had fought at Bielefeld—
At least those who had survived the Drones and and other horrid things—
Were safely rested after the fall of the proposition.
Only Demens took umbrage still
The seasons rolling by, and his ire raised
As he pondered the Universe.

He would return his great magic to its heaven,
Though not even there would all troubles end,
Even though Residents retained within
Were not pitiable, except that select few
That lacked ambition and thus
Remained a challenge to his temperance.

But Demens was away now, among his fellows,
Those Greater Beings beyond the Rim—
Some which created, some which devoured—
To receive a answer to the questions plaguing
His restless mind and its thoughts

The Greater Beings
Those who were awake and gave concern,
Reposed upon thrones of gold or hillocks of grass
And the Father of the Hellenic Dodekatheon
Was speaking as Demens arrived. His thoughts
Eternally upon the foolishness of the Universe:

"Gods! They are always blaming the mortals
For their troubles, when their own witlessness
Causes them more than they were destined for!
Take Giovenith now! The godling
Walks with mortals on her quest for godhood
Knowing it means conflict of purpose—we did warn
Her mother, no?— And they burden her so."
(He said such things because Pearlelei was absent)
"What are you doing about this, Demens? Does she not
Reside in your Abode as a favor to our Fellow?
Will you just sit on your ass and do nothing while mortals
Dictate the will of the gods we created?"

Demens ire grew, that Ouranos would point to him
Without grasping the movements around those stars
Which touched upon his neck of the woods. "Oh, hush
And do not carp about that which you have not taken the
Time to fathom. Your children's era has ended
And their followers are lost to time and Space.
Tell me, then, what bearing have I on Your loss?
Summon them, that they might give an accounting!
Come, Zeus! Come, Hera! And bring with you
Poseidon and Demeter!" Demens raised fingers to his ear
In mockery of the answer that was all to apparent:
These gods had retired to their Heavens
And no more troubled themselves with their mortal flocks.

"You can not blame what you no longer believe in,"
Demens growled to his Fellows. "And the gods have
Forgotten the flocks you set them to tend. A hand basket
Sits in the meadow, filled with fools boarding
To descend into hells which they, themselves,
Crafted through their own apathy. Hush, do not
Look to me for answers. I seek them myself."

Gaia glared at him with contempt miring her face:

"O Demens, you have no room to criticize!
You hath not created gods nor drawn mortals
To your breast as Elohim did. You have no idea
The angst that plagues—" But the Greater Being held
His hand high in rejection of her words and rants.

"Don't patronize me, silly slut. I give respite.
I extend myself for that good while all else
Remains adrift. I draw them to me, mortal and
God alike, that they might take a final
Stand against the Devourers that would cast all
Your creations into ruin, and consume
All the good you have chosen to impart through
Gods to the morals in their care. Yet
All should perish from your own apathy. Reveal
Yourselves then! Cast aside their doubts and
Draw them to you. But you won't."

"How goes that stand?" Para Bramh adjusted
The cushion under him before folding great
Hand together to patiently await response in
Hope that he had successfully shifted blame
From where it belonged and onto something
Entirely different.

"Ask Elohim!" came the snarled reply and
Demens flung out an arm to point to Allah.

Elohim hummed to himself, and at first
Pretended that he had not heard, but
This reaction was futile, as everyone well knew.
"It goes poorly," he confessed, and
Regret etched itself upon his divine features.
"Demens has done well in bringing so
Many in, but many remain out there and
All too many lesser beings of the Universe seem
Bent on following the Devourer's ambitions-
We need not delve into those!- but I would
Say that things have come to an impasse."

"What now?" several Greater Beings asked
Aloud the question that had been voiced time
And time again by them over the various ages
Of gods and mortals. The answer remained
Eternally open, with no real decision made
Regarding the matter being put to bed.

"Bah, fuck you all," Demens rose in order to
Depart from his Fellows. "You seem
Incapable or else unwilling to
Take a stand. I'll go. I'll retreat to my
Sanctuary and puzzle this out for
Myself!"

He did depart, ascending to his place
Where all was as he liked it rather than remaining
A slave to physics' demands. He retreated there
To grouse over the apathy outside
His very gates. Blaming mortals?
Nonsense, for the mortals could not
Be held accountable when their
Gods failed them! Rubbish! Blame the gods!
Blame the deities and their games and their inability
To keep themselves amused sans
Mucking with the mortals in their charge! Enough!
He would gather unto him all the forgotten
Things in the universe- the downtrodden,
The forgotten magic, the mysteries, the lost keys and
Odd socks and neglected people- and house them together
So that they might prove his Fellows wrong
For Demens was a spiteful shit.

Now Demens was a Greater Being of Chaos
Rather than one of Creation, but he
Had paid attention when the Universe was
First set into being. He wasn't inept. He chose
A spot unoccupied yet by politics and the
Bullshittery that had mired his Fellows
As they sat outside their creation and
Bitched about all the thing that had naturally
Gone wrong with it.

"Fine, this isn't rocket science!" Demens squatted
Over the void and looked into the abyss,
Finding nothing in his way. He plucked his brow.
The Greater Being was at a loss
Having never attempted anything so grand.
He fashioned a new dimension and moved on to
populate the void with lopsided planets and suns before
Focusing on the world that would house the
Jumbled outcasts. And so it was that he formed
The waters and land, adding the vegetation and
All the things that creeped and flew and walked upon
His creation.

In truth, he borrowed most of it from existing works
But there was nobody around to complain!

Then Demens set out to draw all those lost things
Unto him, pulling from Time and the ages only those that
Would not be entirely missed. And so it was
That his lopsided world— for nothing was to scale and he
Had neglected to Close off a hole in the ocean, believing it to
Add character to his work— became filled with
Things fantastical and things terrifying and things that
No mortal should really tangle with. But Demens—
Being a Greater Being of Chaos— thought that
Complacency bred apathy.

But he reserved one place in particular for
Part of him to reside, and thus was that part moved
Without any regard to what anyone had to say.
The Building came to his whisper and
It settled on the grassy, windswept hillock
Overlooking the odd city that, through no fault
Other than bridged in the Space/Time continuum
Was already ancient by time of its arrival.

Demens reclined on his celestial Lay-Z-Boy—
Clouds were too froofy for his tastes— to critique his own
Hard work, loathe as he was to do so
Lest he find too many flaws for its own good,
When he was visited by none other than Elohim who
Had come to see what had happened to his unicorns.

"What the fuck is that?" Elohim surveyed his Fellow's work
With not too kindly a grimace upon his face— in truth
He was repulsed by the dimension. And then—
"You stole my damn unicorns!"

"Bah! Nobody believes in them anyway anymore, so
What harm is there? None."

"O Demens, tell me, what do you intend to do with all
Of this junk?" Elohim shook his head as he considered that
Demens had gone quite mad. But Demens held
A hand up to brush aside concerns.

"I have no idea, really," said he, "Other than perhaps
Making things right elsewhere. We'll see
Where this goes."

So it came to pass that Elohim retreated to
His celestial palace. There he reclined upon
His couch and silently snickered into his sleeve at
Demens' gallimaufry.

I'll have to app Minerva, Naomi, Myra, Rodney, Neste and Hans. But, the weekend launch takes priority, so I might not have time to complete them all. Cer would let me get away with running them IC, but I wouldn't have to complete their apps until after the coding and construction was all done. He'll need Minerva and Hans to assist with easing into the new setting, so he's fine with giving me more time.

Likewise, we'll need CoOPs on board with their characters, but you guys have as many as I do, and we're all trying to get stuff done by deadline. App what you can, put aside anyone that won't be used to settle in. If you run out of time to app the primary characters, we'll list them by name and await their apps.

It's assumed that all the current PCs are in the Building when we do the change of venue. No one gets left behind, so everyone (players and CoOPs alike) will have a chance to play all their old characters in the not-too-distant future.

WAFFLES!!!

*I never app'ed Mab, but here's a crappy one for her, and before the deadline, to boot!

Do not remove this search tag: #PLAPP
PERSONIFICATION LIFE CHARACTER APPLICATION
Image



PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS
Character Name: Mab

Character Gender: Female

Species: Fae

Age: Unknown

Appearance: Currently Mab appears as a slender woman in her early 30's with pale -almost alabaster- skin, tri-colored storm grey eyes, and raven black hair. She does nothing to hide her fae features, though the fae are notorious in changing their appearances for flare and amusement; Mab likewise changes whenever it suits her.

URL to Character Picture, if any: One version of Queen Mab

Primary Objective: Mab’s primary goal is to acquire a weapon powerful enough to stop the enemy.

Secondary Objectives: Conflict brews within the Sidhe of the Winterfolk. Staying in her loaned apartment granted by her gracious host, Fritz, Mab has been given a unique opportunity to explore something that was ever meant to be a mortal affair and rare gift for one such as her: choice.

MUNDANE SKILLS
These do NOT require points. These are the average, daily things your character can do. Examples are "drive a car", "speak a normal Foreign Language", "play a guitar", "write poetry". Some mundane skills come from your bio and are freebie. A soldier knows very basic training (shoot a gun, basic drill). Medic, martial arts or sniper would be a Talent. You can list these here:
[*]Fashion. It is as much for appearance sake as it is fun and Mab likes to dress the part whenever possible
[*]Art. While Mab doesn’t practice it, she does have an appreciation for it.


SPECIALIZED SKILLS AND TALENTS
These are specialized skills that set you apart from the average person. You have 7 points to spend here. Examples are swordsmanship, sniper, coercion, piloting etc.
Ability 1 and Points Spent: 5 Diplomacy
Ability 2 and Points Spent: 2 The Arts


OPTIONAL SUPERNATURAL CHARACTERISTICS
(You have 7 points to spend here on supernatural skills or abilities. Sonic Scream, Levitation, Spell Casting, Shape Shifting etc. Superman MUST have his kryptonite, so Restrictions are what can't they do with their power or what balances it. They can only use it when they genuinely need it? They can't use it for more then five minutes without serious side-effects?)
Ability 1: Elemental Manipulation
Power Level: [REDACTED-CoOP Tool]
Strengths: [REDACTED-CoOP Tool]
Weaknesses: [REDACTED-CoOP Tool]

Weaknesses: Summer
Restrictions: As Queen of the Winter Court, her power ebb and flow with the season, locked in an eternal conflict with Summer, before such ‘concepts’ were formed into words, and will continue until the end. As such, Mab’s restrictions are far greater than other fae as she is the embodiment of Winter; her actions reflect upon her and her people.


MAGICAL OR SPECIAL ITEMS
List: NOYB, girl will accessorize on a need to basis!


BACKGROUND
Education or Training:
Character Background/Biography: Mab, formally known as the Queen of Air & Darkness, Monarch of the Winter Court, is the absolute ruler of the Winter Sidhe (fae). She has ruled since time immemorium and will continue until the end - whatever that means. The Queen came to Bielefeld in search of a weapon from in order to alter the past; what she didn’t expect was a rare opportunity to explore beyond the confines of duty and responsibility. ‘Choice’, a concept mortals take for granted on a daily basis, was gifted to her, safe to explore without the worry of Summer moving against her in her absence, safe to do as she pleased. Such a rare gift couldn’t be discarded and so Mab chose to stay, to see what other choices she could make… and what consequences could come with it.


OTHER GAME MECHANICS
URL to Apartment Picture: The apartment is loaned to her by Fritz: it changes frequently according to the Queen’s liking. Mab prefers the interior to be cold, befitting her nature, but such frigid temperatures are usually unnoticed by guests that come to visit her.

TEASER II !

Demens Towers - AKA "The Building"
the Windswept Knoll, Gallimaufry



The Building is centric to the PLverse. When in Gallimaufry, it is located atop a grassy, windswept knoll and serves to house nearly all PCs. The interior construction appears differently to each resident (tile vs wood floors vs carpet, metal staircases vs concrete vs wood) etc. The landlord, O.C. Demens, hardly ever makes an appearance. New tenants are usually welcomed into the Building and find their contract and a key at the reception desk.

The Building is sentient. It heals itself although recently the landlord has begun issuing fines to people who destroy the property without damn good reason. It's heavily protected against intrusion, to include an active security system which purges nanites and smaller things. It easily registers tech. Breaking into apartments while players are offline (and without letting them know) is taboo.

Much can be said about living in the perfect place. To that end, the Building is perfect.

Exterior

Image

Much larger on the inside than on the outside, it bends and folds and establishes itself as a pinnacle of perfection, taking on the outward appearance most pleasing to the viewer. The image to the right is how it looks through the eyes of a Resident. Yet, no matter the appearance, it fits the needs of all.

A short set of stone steps lead up to the Building's front porch and main doors. The porch wraps around to the side and expands into a flagstone courtyard containing tables and other comfortable seating. Residents can enjoy their afternoons on this patio, or can gather around the grand fire pit at night.

Lush lawns frame each side of the building. The back garden contains the pavilion where Residents gathered right after the Drone invasion ended in Bielefeld; the pavilion moves with the Building. The back garden contains a large, manicured lawn. The Building is surrounded by woodland, but its perch atop the hill allows people to overlook the woods to see the city beyond. A gravel pathway wide enough for vehicles leads from Building and through the woods to the rest of the city.
Interior and Common Areas

The Building's interior appears differently to each person and often echos their tastes yet some things remained the same no matter who views them:


Ground Floor
The foyer contains mailboxes and buzzers tucked into a tiny vestibule. It carries on into the lobby proper, touching a large reception desk and the drop box where payments are made and leases tucked.This desk is the first stop for every new resident. There is a large front window and comfortable seating. Several doors lead off the lobby - Medical Clinic, Bomb Shelter, Chaos Quarters, Gym and Pool. Thriller’s Thinking Bench and the main stairway and elevators are also found here. A door market "Maintenance" sits at the far end of the lobby and opens onto a stairwell down to the basement where the janitor and boiler rest in the maintenance corridor.

The indoor pool and gym are open 24/7. These are both rather small. Two restrooms are nestled between these facilities.


Second Floor
The second floor (and all following floors) can be accessed via the main stairs or lifts.

It should be noted that the library can often be found on this level but tends to vanish and reappear on the ground floor. This is mainly due to residents who are too lazy to go up and down the stairs.

The Communal Dining Room and Kitchen seems to be where everybody seems to flock, including those with apartments that have kitchens. Breakfast is usually waffles and omelets. The communal gathering rooms sits across the hall, opposite the dining room. 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 work space, 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.

There are apartments on this level but most are filled (indeed, there are now eights floors containing apartments). The hallways provide opportunities for conversations and people roam them. Some people lurk in them. They have shadows to hide in.


Basement/Garden Level
It's recommended that residents stay out of the basement. Dark things lurk there and it's rumored that one of the remaining Nifid dwells there. Nifid are nasty and dangerous. The maintenance corridor is also where you can find the boiler, the janitor, and the tech priests that keep the Building running, as well as a few private apartments.

Yes there really is a janitor.
Image
Heh. Made ya look.


Rooftop
The rooftop is a retreat during warm days. 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.


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

Restricted Areas
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.


Some Defenses
Some apartments inside skip out of the current dimension and can NOT be entered. Infiltrating others is instant death due to magic or tech: make up a new character. Period.

The building rooftop is set up to defend the building. 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.)

The Building itself is an Eldritch location, however there are a few places within it that are also Eldritch locations. Fun, no? The thing of it is, these locations exist in pocket dimensions provided by Mr. Demens. There are no gateways in or out of them, sans the apartment doors concealing them, ergo teleporting new things in or going out through portals is impossible.

The Raptor House:
This is where the Raptors live. It was sucked into the Building when the structure tore itself from Bielefeld. The house is located behind Apartment 8D's door. Mr. Demens was kind enough to uproot the lawn and garden surrounding it, transporting the entire thing along, so visitors knocking upon that door will open it to find themselves in a small pocket dimension replete with house and landscaping.

The DEMiOs:
This is the abode of the Luxans. Like the raptors' house, it is housed in a pocket dimension that can only be accessed through the apartment door.

Chaos Quarters:
Running theme here... pocket dimension... accessible only through the door in the lobby marked "Chaos Quarters". The avatars and cultists now have a limited back garden rather than the entire dimension Ogoti created. Hey, it cuts down on the water bill.

So I'm back to using my old flip phone from 2010. I don't mind. I'd actually like one of those Japanese flip phones, since they have better internet and features, and they're nice and reliable.
