It's time for our Activity Check!

Activity Check has switched to being check-in only. Drop a comment in this post with your characters' names to let us know you're still interested in playing with them here.

Due to this change, we have eliminated the Strike system. Characters currently on strike do not have to provide proof of activity in this post, but instead can check in like any other character.

Everyone,

This is the mod team here with a very important announcement. Not to beat around the bush, but we’re going to close up shop here and now rather than trying to run a final log. There are a number of reasons for this, but the main one is that we simply don’t think that a final log would honestly be feasible. Activity has completely stalled, and the last few events and logs have been mostly quiet, so we feel it’s best to end the game with Salvation. That way, from a narrative standpoint, there’s something of a happy ending for everyone, and one in keeping with the season.

Thank you all for your support and dedication. This game couldn’t have been as amazing an experience as it has been without you guys. And make no mistake, it has been a treat for us. We’ve enjoyed seeing what you came up with, watching you debate and make guesses at plot points. For some of us, it was our first time modding on Dreamwidth, and we can honestly say it was daunting but thanks to all of you it was a very positive experience.

So, on the behalf of us all, thank you for playing and we hope to see you around at other games. And thank you too, to all the past mods, for helping us build up this wonderful community. It’s hard seeing it go, but we think it’s time.

Good luck out there!

Ax, Mari, Stark.

Alright everyone, we have the results of our endgame poll, and the majority have voted in favor of a shorter endgame, ending no later than January 15th and the 3rd anniversary of the game! We have exciting plans for how to make this happen, and we’ve got plenty to occupy your time these last couple of months, including stuff related to Pokemon Sun and Moon so stay tuned for that as the game comes out!

However we also have a few housekeeping and quality of life changes to toss out for the game’s continued health and to keep you guys having things to do. First things first, as of tonight, applications are officially closed for new characters. We want the current group and returning players to be the focus and give them plenty of opportunities, and think that’s best. That said, we will be keeping applications open for returning players, with a simple reclaim form since you guys have already done your AU and we know you can play your character!

Additionally as of November 1st, Activity Check will be a simple check in just to let us know you’re still here. It’s the holidays, and we aren’t expecting full game participation at this point.

Finally, Soulfast will be going up on Saturday, October 29th as it has every year, and there may be a few familiar NPCs poking their noses into your Soulfasting business.

And as always, thank you for sticking with us. We look forward to heralding in the game’s ending and third anniversary with you!

Hey guys.

As you all have probably noticed, I've been coasting here for A While Now. Having done basically nothing in the last month, I'm coming to terms now with the fact that I need to drop my characters, Rise and Saber.

This is an amazing game, and I've been here since the beginning. Honestly, my last sense of motivation lately has been first and foremost my wonderful CR and in a close second the desire to play an RP from beginning to end. Sadly, while the game remains amazing, I'm all out of energy and direction for my girls, so I'll be departing now, with sad apologies to players of their friends, our wonderful mods, and all the people I really wanted to build CR with and never drummed up the mental energy that you deserved.

Rise will be sticking around Union and moving a little more into political activism now that there's such a big need for diplomats. Saber will be off exploring the world for answers about the past and relaying them to Union as she's able.

Again, I love this game, and I love all you guys. I'll still be around, and maybe I'll come back eventually. For now though, I'll be closing up the Pokédex. Thank you so much for playing with me.

...Because somehow Stark has taken a bent toward idealistic characters as of late.

Hello, all. Today I'm bringing in Yoshichika Tsurugi from that silly, trashy anime that is based on a card game, Luck & Logic. It really makes no logical sense, because anime mechanics are a strange thing, but it really is a fun ride.

Tsurugi here is a subordinant of Veronica Ananko's both in canon and here in Brave New World, but he's not a rank amateur like a lot of shonen protagonists. He's primarily a defensive fighter, and his acutely aware of the mistakes that he made in the past...and he's going to do his best not to make them again.

I promise you all, he's a lot more approchable and friendly than Veronica can be, and he's such a good fit for Union society that it's almost painful to watch. I'm looking forward to introing him with the world fair, and I hope everyone else is, too!

Yo, folks. Nick is here with another shot at a character and bringing you this handful: Kirara Amanogawa.

In her home canon she was a magical girl but here she's a Gigan Pokemon Coordinator from Gigas looking to travel the world and learn about the various fashions and styles of all the different cities and possibly catch a case of the Unions in the process. She's great! ... Once you get to know her a little.

Anywho, her AU plotting post is over here for more information. I'm up for plotting anything with her, both on the positive and negative sides of the CR spectrum.

Hey there everyone, it's Ax and I'm bringing in a new character!

This time it's Mei-Ling Zhou, or Mei for short, from that hip and happening new game Overwatch.

She's the character that makes people smash keyboards by slowing everything down and being just so darn cute when she does it.

In BNW she's a member of a disbanded Gigan army unit called Overwatch (thanks to Nick for the idea), a member of their science division. She's a somewhat clumsy, awkward nerd with a cheerful and positive outlook on life and a Vanillite BFF named Snowball. She's in her mid 20s, and I'm going to have been playing her as though she's lived in Union since Gigas opened up, just setting up shop to study local weather phenomenon. Looking forward to seeing what Union makes of a Gigan who shares a lot of their views, too.

Hey, guys-- Stark here. After a few months of struggling with plotting for him, I think it's time to give Waver a break for now. He's still going to be around in Union, although he might wander off to Sanctuary at some point to kick some Magi butt or do some exploring, so he's not just up and disappearing.

I'll probably bring him back one day when the mood looks right. He needs a chance to grow physically and emotionally, and this break I think will let him have that chance.

In the meanwhile, I'm still here with Pidge Gunderson, and I might be apping in another green kid this month. I love you all too much to go anywhere.

Due to event interruptions, the two exploration player plot logs currently underway are being wrapped. The groups involved learned the following:

Back in July, Raine’s group explored a Pokémon nesting ground located inside an old ruin. After putting together an old mural and exploring some damaged documents, they determine the facility used to be a weather station. They take an old map away with them; it’s been eaten away by time and what looks like water damage, but there’s a road leading southeast of Union past the Coastal Valley with what might be a settlement marked on the map. This settlement’s name cannot be made out, but may begin with a P, B, or a D. What might be an “e” or a “c” features about halfway through the name.

In August, Yuuna’s group encountered some sick Rhydon in the Great Crater. They will successfully lead these Rhydon back to Union, where the Pokémon will begin to recover. The sickness cannot be determined by analyzing the Rhydon, but one of them does have a piece of some sort of corrosive black substance stuck between the rocky plates of its skin. The exploration group also discovered the area surrounding the Great Crater is blighted, reaching out into the Obsidian Flats all around. This area does not, however, appear to be spreading.

As a result of this exploration, the Great Crater is now open for bonding.
