ringleaders: (Default)
WELCOME TO THE SHOW!

Or, more specifically, Lost Carnival's test drive meme! This is an opportunity to try out your characters in the setting before you apply, or to put together samples for characters you've never played before. There are going to be options for both new arrivals and veteran characters. Before we get started, let's lay down some details:
  • You can (and should) read the full premise here.
  • Reserves are now OPEN, and Applications are currently CLOSED, but will be opening as of August 1st!
  • You can apply as a newcomer or as a "veteran" character who has been in the carnival for up to three years. In the case of veteran characters, you will need to come up with an explanation of why they haven't been around the carnival recently.
  • TDM threads can be used as game canon after the fact if both characters are accepted, the players agree to it, and it makes any sense contextually.
  • If you are interested in additional IC and OOC plot responsibilities, consider applying for a Supervisor position. Head Cook and Treasurer are currently open. Otherwise, we're pretty much down for anything, roles wise.

21st-Jul-2017 10:21 am - ⇨ THE TOURIST TRAP: EVENT REWARDS
ringleaders: (Default)
EVENT REWARDS!

The end of the event is drawing near, and while some investigation is still being resolved, the bulk of the plot's mysteries have been exposed in some form or another. This means it's time to talk about what will be happening as this event comes to a close - and in the case of this particular post, what your characters will be taking away from it!

The event will be ending with the Winter Court attempting to take control of the Severing Spell on the night of Halloween. It will be the player's role to make sure they are able to take control of it in order to bring it down, or at least to get everyone back to the carnival. How exactly that will play out is still up in the air, but once everyone is returned to the carnival (one way or the other) they will retain some memories and skills from their alternate lives.

Everything that occurred during the month long event will be in perfect clarity, but memories of their alternate backstories will be fuzzier, and will conflict less harshly as their true histories reassert dominance. However, that doesn't mean that new identity and new history is gone for good. Complete or not, it will still be a part of your character, and major backstory events will remain in mind, even if it feels more distant and confused than their original lives.

Beyond those memories, the characters will be able to potentially bring some other traits and skills with them, as outlined in this post.

20th-Jul-2017 09:49 am - ⇨ CONFLICT RESOLUTION: DICE ROLLS
ringleaders: (Default)
CONFLICT: RITUAL COMPONENT

The time has come to decide who is coming up on top in the battle for the ritual component required for the execution and control of the spell intended to take control of the Severing. As voted by the players, this will be decided by dice rolls, modified with bonuses based on the in-game situation and player character support. There's going to be some cause and effect here, so each stage will have to be rolled separately, as how much they win or lose by may effect them in the next conflict.

The dice are going to be rolled publicly on the mod plurk ([plurk.com profile] lostcarnival), and the results will be posted here. This is an organizational post to make sure this information all ends up in the same place, and is publicly accessible to all players. Each team requires two things to successfully take control of the Severing: this ritual component, and a powerful caster with a blood connection to one of the rewritten carnival members, who will be used as a catalyst. The catalyst must be at least half human. Here is a rundown of the current teams:
THIS AND MORE, BENEATH THE CUT )

Hey all! With Week 3 upon us, and things taking a turn more for the plot-heavy, I thought it might be useful to put up an OOC post for coordinating/touching base to facilitate characters bumping into each other, regaining more memories, etc. Feel free to us this post to sound off about what your character's been up to, if you're looking to play something in particular, and whether they're thinking of joining a faction.

Please put your character names in headers for ease of searching, and here's an optional and totally non-mandatory form, in case you're like me and like having something to put your ducks in a row. Delete whatever sections you feel like you don't need!

30th-Jun-2017 04:05 pm - ⇨ TOURIST TRAP FINALE OPINION POLL
osteothropy: by leeffi@tumblr (degree is useless)
FINALE OPINION POLL
Sans is back to make another important event opinion poll, regarding how things should be resolved in the Tourist Trap event. We are moving into month two, which means we need to start considering how all of this is going to end. There are multiples ways it could be plotted from a mod perspective, and I would like you perspective on which options seems the most exciting/most satisfying.

But before the poll, I'm going to give a more thorough explanation of what each option means. Each "team" in this sense is something like, the Angel Team, or the Summer Court, who are all vying for different end goals. The winner of each of these options would decide where the final conflicts occur at the end of the event, and not necessarily who will win out over all. (Consider it a method of determining who starts out with the major advantage.

  1. PLAYER POLL: Choosing this option means that you'd like the mods to just explain to you what "sides" there are to the plot struggle at the moment, and have you decide which angle you'd like the endgame plot to take based on popular vote.
  2. DICE ROLLS: Based on the current situation and the current power dynamics between "sides", each group would be given a numerical advantage or disadvantage and then publicly rolled against each other to see which team comes out on top.
  3. MOD DECISION: The mods just plot out a series of events based on what seems the most likely/most interesting, based on the current IC climate.

With that explained, what is your preference? Feel free to ask clarifying question. Regardless of which options gets picked, there will be a Month 2 plotting post going up to help figure out where people are getting involved.

Poll #18535 FINALE OPINION POLL

I apologize for my recent slowness, and ... sadly it will be continuing. Due to rl medical issues, I will be doing what I can as I can but it may be a bit between tags. Please bear with me!

OPINION POLL TIME
Hello everyone, this is Quix, posting from my Sans journal because you need to have a paid account to make polls! This is just a general opinion poll about various events that have happened in Lost Carnival, and I would like you to rate your opinion of each one on a scale of 1 to 5. This doesn't necessarily have to reflect your personal experience with it (if you had a hard time because of IRL circumstances or you just got lost for reasons that weren't the fault of the event itself), but should rather give an impression of your outlook towards events like the listed one in a more general sense.

As you've probably guessed, the intent is for me to learn about what has worked and what hasn't worked as far as the players are concerned, so that I can keep that in mind when planning events in the future. Obviously, feedback on the current AU event will be incomplete, but you can comment based on your opinion on it so far.

You are also quite welcome to go into more detail in the comments if you have more complex opinions on a particular subject. Also, there are some questions at the end that are more specific.
