Watch out, it's tiiiime for an event

Listen up Luceti, because here’s what’s going down!

On the 21st, the meeting with Romaeus and Julia occurred, followed immediately (after Q&A) by a town meeting. At that meeting, the following issues were discussed:
  • tensions with the Resistance are rising and growing violent
  • some scouts have disappeared or been killed, and the cause is unconfirmed but suspected as the Resistance themselves
  • plans are being developed to end the fighting peacefully and more information will be available next week
  • everyone should start preparing themselves for a long-term conflict JUST IN CASE, which means staying armed and vigilant, and rationing food carefully
  • a follow-up meeting within the week will occur

On the 26th, that follow-up meeting happens. You can find it here.

THE MISSION ITSELF

The morning of the 27th, the barrier around the enclosure will drop. Aside from those chosen for the mission headed for the Resistance base, characters will have the freedom to explore the rest of the world as they please. The mission to the Resistance base will be chosen via randomizer and there is a limited number of slots open, so please sign up here. The mission requires people who can negotiate and convince Theo to come back to Luceti, a combat team to protect them, and a possible stealth team if they need to sneak him out. How the mission runs depends on the characters' IC choices, so please tell us what your character can specialize in on the sign-up. The outcome of the mission will be discussed on a second post for the chosen group.

Sign-ups run until October 29th, 11:59PM EST.

ROMAEUS' SHOPPING LIST

Romaeus has made available a list of resources he needs in order to build equipment for the future- specifically, the Shifting equipment required to send everyone back to their own timeline. Each continent has a list of resources that Romaeus needs (seen below) and since the name of the game is the more the merrier, go grind for item drops and tell us below what your characters will bring back here. (This does not need to be filled in right away, just whenever it happens!)

So, without further ado, ladies and gents, I give you: Luceti's world.


Click to enlarge.


The only downside, as you can see, is that it's pretty bare. It's big and open and free and- ...full of rocks and trees (and water)! Methods of travel available for explorers are ATVs for crossing terrain and motorized boats for crossing the seas. Ocean crossings take about 5 days from continent to continent by boat to give you an idea of the world's size. Transportation to the boats will be done via teleport, so hooray for less walking. Once on the boats, however, there are a few things you can do if you're keen on exploring the place.

Key features:
CONTINENT 1
  • The red dotted line is the route taken to bring Theo back, which is being discussed in the NPC post linked above
  • Enclosures are as-yet unnamed towns much like Luceti itself, small and sparsely populated, and about the same level of technology. These towns will have barriers, so try not to crash into any of them, okay? That could hurt. From above, people will be visible, doing their day-to-day tasks and just living their lives as per usual, but communication would be difficult through the barrier.
  • The coastal enclosure is an open port with no barrier and ships available for people who want to explore beyond Luceti's continent. Priority will be given to the mission group, but there might just be extra boats. Try haggling with the fishermen or something.
  • There is an old abandoned settlement to the north of Theo's base, composed of very primitive structures and equipment. The area is overgrown and it looks like the area was stripped clean a long, long time ago. Not much to find, but an interesting slice of history.
  • Resources: latte machine (from the enclosure nearest Luceti; Romaeus needs his coffee, someone get to work on that), iron bamboo (south-west forest), unicorn horn (far south-east forest; pure maidens only, sorry)


CONTINENT 2
  • This area is the main territory of the resistance and should be avoided by those who aren't part of the mission, as outside interference could screw the whole thing up.
  • Agora is an established town without a barrier that is much older and more developed than any of the enclosures. It is populated almost entirely by large-winged people, and the atmosphere of the town itself is tense and uneasy. Political changes within the Resistance have made everyone really uncomfortable with the small-winged residents of the world, so visitors to Agora won't be especially welcome. Additionally, if a large number of people start poking around the town and asking questions, things might get violent.
  • Resources: black sand (west side beach)


CONTINENT 3
  • This continent is for the most part unpopulated and unexplored; it is an unwelcoming desert area, rich with mining opportunities that the harsh climate is concealing.
  • Characters who have in the past visited R'Car might find it familiar, though no housing or landmarks exist at this time.
  • Resources: ribavius ore (central desert)


CONTINENT 4
  • This area mainly consists of grasslands, forests, and huge, sweeping mountain terrain. Being one of the largest continents, the region's temperature and weather varies quite a bit; south will be similar to Luceti's area, but the northern area can be very cold and unforgiving. The furthest north is almost entirely covered in mountains and snow, with frequent storms, making the area unpleasant and completely untamed.
  • The area closest to continents 1 and 5 have a number of waystations scattered so explorers can find shelter and tools to help with their traveling.
  • Resources: Celcius Tear (northern foothills), adamantium ore (mountains), retro diodes (southeastern coasts), and Lewisia Silver flowers (southeastern grasslands), beast hides (west forest; any beasts will do)


CONTINENT 5
  • Much like #4, this area is mostly mountains and forest terrain. Being further south it's quite a bit warmer, and thus has been more easily explored; there are more rest/supply areas but strangely enough no large established towns.
  • Nomads in small groups populate this area here and there, and the wing sizes vary for once, though rarely do two groups work together. Residents maintain the supply depots and make use of them, so if you bunk down for the night you might have to fight for a blanket with your neighbour. For the most part, though, they just want to be left alone and stay far away from the conflicts brewing on their neighbouring continent.
  • The center of this continent consists primarily of rainforests, unforgiving jungles with high temperature and moisture levels. Avoid the insects, god only knows what they're carrying...
  • Sirry Crags is a landmark that some might find especially familiar; it's a popular mission location and was one of the first places outside of Luceti made available to characters.
  • Resources: mythril (east edge of mountains), Moon Stone (north-west mountains)


CONTINENT 6
  • This area is at the base of the world, and is a lot like Antarctica; desolate, cold, deserted by all except wildlife.
  • Resources: monsters with incredible bone properties (northern coast)


Here are answers to some questions that people have asked us:

Do the journals work outside the barrier?
The network doesn't depend on distance, so characters should still be able to communicate while traveling. Natural Shifting outside of the barrier might mess with the functions somewhat, so responses might be slow or glitchy ("can you hear me now??") if you want to utilize the magic of bad timing or crap reception, but otherwise it's business as usual. However, the journals cannot be used to contact other enclosures as the network is still Luceti-restricted.

Is the power cap still in effect?
With the barrier dropped, the power cap will be gone, meaning characters will be back to 100% capacity. Certain powers are still naturally disabled (such as like, cross-dimensional travel) but otherwise any power should be fair game. If you're not sure if your character can or cannot do something, ask in the Q&A thread below.

What, if anything, is written on the tunnel wall? Are there any more examples of what's written there?
Some of the previous given examples are already decorating the walls, such as the following notes:

“C + D Forever”
“i miss you mommy, please come back soon, okay??”
“You can take my memories, but my mark on this world is forever.”
“LIVE, LOVE, AND BE LOVED.”
“ [drawing of a stick-figure family (or perhaps a group of friends?), standing under a tree.] ”
“I’m losing myself. Every single day. There will be nothing left of me when this is over.”

Some messages that were previously undiscovered (perhaps because they’re written in obscure corners, or because they’ve long since faded) include messages such as the following:

“I’m afraid I’ll forget what the old world was like. Maybe the walls can remember for me.”
[Listed below, with the items written at the top beginning to fade, while the items written farther down appear fresher:]
“[messy sketches of several faces with names written below and labels such as “sister”, “like a father”, “dearest friend”, etc.]”
“Loving you is easy because cats”
“Sundays were important. Reading and pie. Sometimes apple, usually rhubarb.”
[and so on with inane details]

“I took a walk by the river and epiphanized that we are not young only once”

“[a doodle of a jewel]
“My love is like a red, red rose
“If I were red too, would you love me back?”

“I want to break free”
[Below, in a different hand:] “Who here actually knows the name Freddy Mercury?”
[and a rather pitiful tally underneath]

“I just want them back on our side”
[Scrawled below:] “I don’t want there to be any ‘sides’!!”

As usual, ask questions below and sign up if you dare!

Quick question that's been bugging me for a while-- Cliff and Fayt both possess little devices called Quad Scanners that, per the in-game encyclopedia, "is capable of measuring any and all known types of sound waves, light, electromagnetic radiation, gravity waves, and other variables.
Since this scanner is also capable of emitting a variety of different wavelengths, it can handle nearly any biological, geological, environmental or other surveying task by itself."

We're well aware of how it is borderline non-functional within the context of Luceti's barrier, and that shifts will throw all of the readings completely out of whack, but what kinds of data can it pick up on once it's removed from that context?

Are any of the natural shifts going to be life threatening and/or do weird things to you? After all it's been implied in the future they might rip you apart/we see the shift incompatibilities on drafts so it seems worth asking

What are the animals like on the other continents? Continent 6 appears to have monsters from the resource section, but what of the other ones, and what sort if they do?

Are any of the items asked for particularly rare? Will a unicorn only be seen with the presence of a pure maiden, or only stick around with one? And can the pure maiden receive the unicorn's horn as a gift that engages them.

Forever.

And ever.

So let's say we have a couple of characters who DO want to go to Agora. What would they encounter there besides being unwelcome? Is there a leader of the town that some Lucetians would grab the attention of, would the residents even talk to them AT ALL, are there rumors to be heard?

What about the religion there, is it possible to find out about that too?

I'll ask more when I think of more probably, haha.

I'm not sure if this is the right plot info post for this question, but it's the one I could find. If it's not the right place, just let me know where I should post it and I'll do it there.

So Anakin has a unique Force talent - he can understand anything about a mechanical or electronic device just by examining it in the Force. I would like to know 1) if there is some kind of magic on the shift tech that would block Anakin's talent; and 2) if he can use his talent on the shift tech, what can he understand?

It's okay if there is magic preventing him from understanding the shift tech, I just need to know.

I have a sort of odd one. For the mountains on Continent 5, which are full of mythril and moonstone - do they have enough of a mystic property to them that they might affect Silver's Magneton and allow it to evolve into a Magnezone?

I namely ask because this is probably the only opportunity that Silver would get to evolve that Pokemon, so I wanted to snag the chance before it's lost if it's a possibility.

Continent 1
Red went to the south-west forest with Ginia Solana ([personal profile] whiskytraitorfirefight) and Leaf ([personal profile] pokegirl) to search out the iron bamboo. Red and Leaf used both of their pokémon to help cut down and rip out bamboo as close to the soil as possible, while Red also took some time to have his pokémon attempt to extract the bamboo with the roots to take back to grow closer to Luceti (if this is fine by the mods; Red and Ginia discussed the idea and Red would have asked the farmers, but also would have attempted it if no one had any particular tips about it for him anyway).

The iron bamboo would have been attached to the ATV; or, if too heavy, the pokémon would have been used with the bundle tied up to them. Snorlax and Steelix would have been likely used, as well as Venusaur too (but not as many, since she's unable to carry much on her back due to her flower).

How much they brought back I will leave to you mods to decide. \o And if you would like us to pick a location for the bamboo to be grown (if you believe it would have succeeded/done much), let us know.

Here's some preliminary plotting for my cats! I should try to leave at least one person at the village but I am tempted right now to have pretty much all of mine setting out...

I've ended up signing up Aang for the mission to try his hand at diplomacy. If he doesn't get picked, he'll definitely be going on an exploration team, however. The same for if there's still room for explorations after the mission goes through.

Jade will definitely be exploring, and Kurt and Rock Lee could also be persuaded to go on explorations. And Mytho, his dark side prominent, may head out for his own self-involved reasons, in search of power or allegiance. Pretty much all of my characters have some kind of wilderness survival preparation (except for Mytho) and some useful abilities. Aang has airbending and his glider, although that's not useful for multiple people. Jade has leadership skills and military know-how. Kurt can teleport up to two miles at a time. And Rock Lee is powerhouse for taking down incredible foes. Mytho... he has creepy crow powers and ballet.

So anyone who wants to be in a group with any of my five, please let me know.

Just a little preliminary plotting here for Cliff, since this event proposes multiple possibilities for him, but I'm leaning heavily toward having him go the exploration route. He's strong, has mad wilderness survival skills, and is in possession of a nifty little device that can actually help them locate some of the harder-to-find resources.

There's no reason to lock him into any one specific destination either, because he has been wanting to see this world without being monitored by the Malnosso for a long while, so if anyone needs a savvy big guy for their travelling party, let me know!

Okay, here's my hat in the ring. Leia is signed up for the mission, but if she doesn't get picked to do her diplomacy thing, she'll probably do some exploration and bring things back on Romeaus's list. She's roughed it before for long periods of time, and thanks to Luke's quick thinking, she has a pack ready for being out in the wild.

Kanji will either go out exploring or stay in the village. He's got nearly no camping experience. That one time with the school doesn't really count. But, well, he's a healthy teen with a lot of strength and power in his Persona. So, if anyone wants to drag him along with them, I'd be up for that too.

I signed Rin up for the mission. If he's not selected for it (or hell, even if he is, timeline depending) I'd love for him to be involved in helping people out in projects around the village here. That's sort of my rough goal for him, but because he's a bit of a dumb albeit a well meaning one I'm mostly looking to latch on to other plans. So. Throw me some plans if you have them.

As for Masaomi he's out to explore. Specifically, I'd like to him (with the help of some ~pure~ maidens) to track down the unicorn for Romeaus before he goes out to meet the nomads on continent 5. There might be more depending on the timeline involved, but I'd love to collect more for that group. Unless someone in said group has better transport, he'll probably also be working out of that ATV.

Tharja will head up for the mission! She's looking for a chance to curse people again. And maybe learn a little more about wtf is going on.

Mickey Mouse however, will not explore or go on a mission - at last, not a standard luceti-given mission. He'd promised to watch over and take care of Mytho, but the boy's on the run! So Mickey will be searching all over for his friend!

Sokka will be going exploring. While he's not opposed to going on dangerous missions, he also knows everyone has a role to play, and a better role for him would be leading being part of an expedition into the world to do Romaeus' dirty laundry grocery shopping Amazon wish list exploration thing.

As a fair-weathered warning, I WILL be declaring an official hiatus early November if not before, so if you want Sokka as part of the party, he will be on total autopilot/backtag frenzy from at least November 2-8 (or thereabouts, with possible bonus hiatus days on either side).

So Gold here will be going out into the world and exploring! He can fly on his Togekiss so getting around quickly and easily is a snap. Anyone wanna come with him for that? We can totally go find something awesome. He'll probably come back to the village later on in the week. Maybe there'll be something happening in the village then...

Before any of that, though, Gold has some "grocery shopping" to do, so he's going to go take that latte maker because why not? How hard can it be to grab a latte maker? He's got Emil and Mikage coming along from what I'm understanding, anyone want to make this a party of four?

Also Ginia will offer ATV lessons to anyone who wants to learn how to ride on.

Opal will be staying put for now and trying to contend with the things going on in the village. If things clear up, she'll be happy to go along too and lend her rather amateur airbending abilities to the mix.

Cilan is gonna be exploring with Ash: he's willing to help with getting stuff on the list and even a little amateur cartography, ie making a map that could be of help to others.

The only problem is that this is Ash and Cilan we are talking about here, so there's a high likelihood that they'll get lost a lot or end up being trouble magnets if they're on their own for too long. So, if anyone wants to do something with Cilan or both of them, even if it's just running into them, temporarily traveling with or merely checking up on them over the journals, just let me know!

(Cilan might come back to the village once at some point, but he'd probably quickly NOPE his way back out as soon as he caught wind of all the spirit chaos ^^;;)
