[ The feed opens on one dark, out of focus eye squinting at the camera. The owner of the eye blinks, pulls back, and frowns, looking over the screen. It's pretty obvious that Keith doesn't have the first clue that he's actually streaming this — no, he's just setting the TAB down on the counter.

He pulls out a pocket knife. He gathers up a handful of the back of his unruly hair, a few months overdue for a cut. And... yes, he's really doing it. He's using selfie mode as a mirror to trim his mullet with a knife.

After a minute of him hacking away at the ends of his hair, the "transmitting" symbol on the TAB catches his notice, and his eyes go wide. There's a smack as he slams the TAB facedown on the counter, grumbling something indistinct. After a moment, he gathers it back up again, with an expression on his face somewhere between "annoyed" and "I hope an asteroid hits me."

Quick question!

What are your favorite songs to hear on the piano? I'm asking because I want to expand my repertoire~!

I know that with tons of people who live in different universes, there's going to be a LOT of songs that I have never heard or played before. I'd like to try my hand at it.

So could you care to help me, Tifa Lockhart, with expanding my song list? I'd sure appreciate it! :D <3

Hello, everyone! First off, we want to thank everyone who took part in the player survey. We had a great response and some very helpful, insightful comments. If you missed the survey or wanted to add more, don't fret—the state of the game post is here, and now's the time to say whatever's on your mind. But before we get to that, the mod team wants to share some results of survey and specific actions that we're putting into place immediately. Read on! )

Player Plot Wrap-Up!

Hi everyone! Sue here again. I promise this will be the last OOC post of this crazy plot! This post is to explain the outcome of the player vote and what effects it will have on Earth 91c and the visiting characters.

The vast majority of participating players voted to have the mystery device returned to Atarah, which means one way or another, she’s getting it back. Shortly after Atarah regains the item, a strange phenomenon will be reported by CCOA ambassador Daniel Wright on the network: several Created have gone missing in the past couple of days alone and unusual “property damage” has been reported. Because these strange events coincide with the prolonged presence of the PCs, the CCOA is calling for all foreign visitors to report to their headquarters for questioning. Until they find out who is responsible, no one will be allowed to leave Earth 91c. Any characters attempting to return to Thisavrou will be stopped by armed guards blocking their way to the Ingress.

Characters have a few options here: they can fight their way through to the Ingress, sneak past the guards, or, if they have any knowledge about prior plot events, they can cooperate with the investigation and help reveal the true orchestrators of the disappearances. Any characters who provide useful information will be allowed to leave. If necessary, characters can also call on their friends to rescue them from CCOA custody and smuggle them out through the Ingress.

Whatever the final outcome, once all PCs have left Earth 91c, they will not be able to return. The way to Earth 91c through the Ingress will be closed indefinitely. For OOC reasons, all characters must have escaped/departed by June 26th so handwave what you need in order to make sure your character GTFOs in time!

Thank you all for participating in this plot! I’ve really enjoyed being part of it! ^^ If you have any questions, feel free to drop them below!

[On June 24th, another official video message appears on the network, once again showing ambassador Daniel Wright. He looks significantly more solemn this time around, and perhaps a little less well-rested.]

Hello everyone. This is Daniel Wright with the CCOA again. I’m afraid I have some troubling news. [A glance offscreen.] Over the past couple of days, several Created have gone missing. There was a pattern of property damage involved with each of these cases, though thankfully no one was injured. The circumstances surrounding these disappearances… well, it’s like nothing we’ve seen before. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of so many disappearances in such a short amount of time.

[His expression grows apprehensive. He takes a breath as if to steel himself.] Unfortunately, given the timing of all this, I’ve been asked to pass on this mandate to all offworld visitors to Eastgate: you are all required to report to CCOA headquarters for questioning and, if applicable, code checks. Once we find out who or what is responsible for these disappearances, you will all be free to go. Until then, nobody is allowed to depart through the Ingress.

[He sighs.] I’m very sorry about this, but these circumstances are highly unusual and I’m afraid it’s only logical to suspect that there was an offworld influence involved. If you cooperate with our investigation, I’m sure you’ll all be released shortly.

Thank you, and apologies for the inconvenience.

Who: Erik, residents and visitors of the X-mansion, anyone else who comes across him
When: June 22
Where: Ingress Complex, Kauto (region five, residence fifteen), the places in between
What: A canon update and probably a lot of apologies
Warnings: Will update as needed

Ingress Complex, and the trip to R5

This isn't the first time he's been through the Ingress Complex, but this time at least he knows what's happening, and where he is. The anger that had tainted his arrival here is gone, too, or at least subdued enough not to be so apparent. It's manageable now, and he can start to move past it.

He allows the technician to complete their assessment, as patiently as he can, because he knows that he's not injured and he's got somewhere he wants to be. Finally he's allowed to move on again, and because it's a long trip from here to his destination in Region Five, any number of people could come across him on the way.

X-mansion, residents and visitors

He never knows what to expect when approaching this place, whether it's in this world or the one he came from. He knows that things weren't left on the best terms the last time he was here, and that this is something he needs to work on. He just hopes that it can happen without the endless arguments like before.

He takes his time, strolling slowly through the grounds before approaching the house itself. He still thinks it's more house than anyone needs, but at least now he can see why Charles was so eager to use it for a school.

X-mansion, for Lorna

Once inside, and away from any of the residents or visitors who may have stopped him along the way, he stops by his room to pick something up. There's something he wants to show Lorna. Raven had been right when she told him that he had more family than he knew, and he hadn't been doing much about it before. Now he knows better, and is determined to do something about it. There's nothing he can do about Peter right now, but Lorna's here, and he'll make the most of that.

He sets out to look for her, starting with a knock on her door. Hopefully he's not disturbing her.

[The video feed here is set up very much like he's filming an orientation video; he knows little else other than strict formality here, but...when it comes to his school, he would say he finds the professionalism appropriate.]

The purpose for this is twofold, so I suppose I'll just get started.

Over the last few weeks of getting settled into this environment, learning its...well "intricacies" is a small word for it, perhaps eccentricities is better, I believe now more than ever that we need some tangible return to normalcy. I would like to have the school-- [and with the video feed he links something that looks very much like an old-school brochure, which will very much omit the whole "subbasement" part of the post] --up and running within the month. We have the faculties and facilities for a number of traditional subjects: literature, biology, philosophy, physical education [though it might sound like he means something very different by this] and a few other outliers, but we are still very much in need of some help in the history and mathematics departments. (Though I'll take more esoteric lessons under advisement).

[He pauses then, and his demeanor shifts entirely, shifting from cold to amiably warm like he's flipped a switch.]

As for the second point, and no less salient: it is my understanding that I am not the only one of my kind here, and that we are not, perhaps, the only ones particularly gifted. For those of you who may not identify as mutants, I would love the opportunity to speak with you about the nature of your powers.

[He pauses to consider that request for a moment, and follows up with an addendum:]

If any of you are comfortable doing so.

Who do YOU want to enable?

THE THISAVROU ENABLING MEME




Plenty of us found the game through friends, but why not cast a wider net? Starting this month, we'll be making monthly OOC posts to gather lists of the most-wanted characters for the game in order to create an ad to post on [personal profile] enablemeplz. Want to let roleplayers know you'd like to see them here? Just fill out this form and paste it in a comment below. We'll compile the responses and post the ad.

[LOOK WHO'S OUT OF THE CLINIC AT LONG LAST]

Hey, so guys? I totally do not recommend eating wild berries. Tasty though they look, gentle on your stomach they are not. Oh, man. It was like being on the test team program all over again. Ship going backward sand forwards, up and down, side to si--

[He goes a little green and cups his mouth. When he speaks again he sounds strained.] Alright, okay, cool. So enough of that. That is officially all of that that's gonna happen.

So, yeah. No berries. Bad plan. Don't do it.

Player Plot OOC VOTE!

Hi everyone!

This is Sue. Thank you to everyone who’s participated in this player plot so far! I’ve been having a great time planning this and keeping up with all your threads and plots. Now, things are finally coming to a head on Earth 91c which means it’s time for a player vote to decide how things shake out for the planet and the characters currently on it!

A SUMMARY
After arriving on Earth 91c, a few players may have heard whispers of a murder that took place a couple of weeks before their arrival. Said murder involved a Created killing two humans in broad daylight. An anonymous post to the network later purported that the Created involved, a Program named Kess, had likely been hacked in an unknown way that caused her to lash out in violence. It also included a video of the incident that showed Kess making a strange, rumbling sound during the attack.

Player investigation revealed that Calla, a Program who works in the Gardens entertainment venue, was also hacked shortly before the incident. He described two Creators placing a hexagonal object on his back that caused him to feel agitated and sick, before they were driven off by a good samaritan. Though he himself does not feel compelled towards violence, he was notably left with an audio glitch similar to that which was heard from Kess in the recorded video. (Thanks L, Tex, and Cayde-6 for their investigation!)

While all this was going on, a group of characters were contracted by Atarah, the leader of a group of rogue Created operating out of Rook Manufacturing. Atarah hired these characters to retrieve an object of “symbolic significance” that had been stolen from Rook Manufacturing by anti-Created zealots. The contracted characters Liquid Snake, Cayde-6, Samuel Drake, and Vetra Nyx were chosen to carry out a raid on June 22nd to retrieve the object—an object that, as it turns out, matches the description that Calla gave of the object used to edit him, and likely Kess.

Given its potential to turn normally docile Programs into indiscriminate killers, this object is undeniably dangerous in anyone’s hands. The question is, what should be done with it?

THE VOTE
This is an OOC vote, meaning that your character is not voting ICly, and they don’t necessarily know all the information given above. You can vote based on what your character would do if they did know the above information, or you can vote based on what outcome you as a player believe would be the most interesting. However, if you would like your character to get involved in any of these outcomes (for example, if they would feel strongly enough about their chosen option to steal the object from those who would do otherwise), then feel free to contact me at this account or on Plurk at [plurk.com profile] crimsonxiphos and I’ll see what I can do to throw them into the mix. Below is a list of potential options you might consider voting for; simply comment below with your choice. The outcome will be announced on June 22nd so be sure to vote while you can!

1. RETURN THE OBJECT TO ATARAH: Dangerous or not, the object belongs to Atarah. As the leader of a faction that provides a safe haven to free Created, she can be trusted to use it to resist Earth 91c’s system of AI slavery.

2. HAND THE OBJECT OVER TO THE CCOA: This object is a danger to everyone who lives on Earth 91c and must be given to those who can be trusted to destroy it. Whatever one’s feelings on the Creator/Created divide, violence is not the answer.

3. KEEP THE OBJECT: This thing sounds sick as hell and you want to volunteer your character to try and get their paws on it and bring it back to Thisavrou.

4. SOMETHING ELSE? Feel free to vote for alternatives to the options above!
