WELCOME TO THE SHOW!

CHECK OUT THIS MONTH'S FOURTH WALL EVENT!
MORE INFORMATION BENEATH THE CUT.


In the meantime, 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 and Applications are currently OPEN.
  • 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.

PROMPTS ARE WITHIN! )

ringleaders: (Default)
ESCAPE THE PRINCE!
4th Wall characters who submit an app and are accepted will be able to have their character move on from the Grand Ball log fluidly, and will not have to re-enter. Essentially, they will be joining the game as they are at the ball, though their power nerf will lift as the event proceeds. They won’t have any weapons or clothes with them that they didn’t have at the ball, but they can arrange with the Ringmaster to pick necessary items up later if absolutely required.

Essentially, the haze on their minds will lift enough that they will be able to escape with the current player characters. The specifics of the final conflict of this event are still playing out via a series of attempted infiltrations, but wherever it goes, your character is welcome to participate and move along with the plot. There will probably be a couple more twists and turns for those brought in for the ball, given that – at least at the moment – they are still the property of the Prince.

Their method of entering the carnival will be this: in order to protect the 4th Wall characters from the way the Prince has marked their souls during their kidnapping, the Ringmaster will be taking them on board with a contract in order to overwrite the Prince’s ownership of them. There will be no contract rewards for this method, because the reward is getting to not be the Prince’s slave.

Once the carnival has moved on from this event, they will go with them, and will then be assigned their carnival jobs and trailer roommates. You will probably find out this OOC information in advance of when your character does, however. Your “reason for joining” on the app can essentially just be “escaping he Prince.”

If any 4th Wallers intending on applying have questions, you can ask them down below! If you want to make sure you don’t miss any of the 4th Wall Ball plot, make sure your application is in by the end of October 22nd.

soft_focus: (-glugglug-)


Inspired by our Lovely NPC Soundtrack, it's a Soundtrack meme! Here's the gist:

1) Comment with your Character

2) Comment on others with songs that remind you of those characters, or songs you think would fit. (Or comment on yourself, if you have some for yourself)

3) PROFIT???

PREPARATION
On Day 170, the Ringmaster will announce that she will be leaving the carnival for a visit to an 'ally', and that in the meantime everyone should just stay in the carnival grounds and wait for her to come back. She will shrug it off as being a simple matter, and say that it shouldn't take much time at all, and that it is something for the good of the carnival.

Of course, a few hours later, she will return with another announcement - actually, her... "ally", has "requested" that all of her underlings join her in visiting his castle while they negotiate the terms of a potential agreement. She will insist that it's a diplomatic affair, and that while really all that is required of everyone is to behave themselves and to not provoke the Prince's ire, it's extremely important that they listen to her this time. This announcement will be made by radio.

The evening of Day 170, everyone will be brought to an enormous manor house, apparently suspended in some kind of twilight void. They'll all be randomly assigned rooms in pairs of two (OOC RNG time!) and instructed to arrive for breakfast at 8AM sharp. Follow the schedule, be polite, and everything will be great.

Right? Right.

SETTING

Heartstone Manor is a spooky looking cross between a castle and a monastery, floating in the middle of realm filled with nothing else but empty twilight. Specifically, it is the home of a High Fae called The Prince - or so the Ringmaster will explain. He's one of the Wyld Fae, like she is, and when he fled from fae civilization eons ago, he hid himself away here to live in solitude as he saw fit. No one and nothing else lives here except for the Prince and his servants, and there is no visible sun - only stages between twilight and darkness.

The Manor itself is a massive stone construction, filled with old fashioned looking architecture and filled to the brim with art. Frescos, statues, and engravings line every hall, ranging from classical to abstract. The subject matter is almost always that of beautiful humanoids - in the form of fae, angels, and the more seductive forms of demons. The servants mostly appear to be traditionally beautiful as well. This seeming obsession with beauty is tied directly to the desires of the Prince himself.

While you are in his home, formal attire is mandatory. He will be gracious enough to provide everyone with appropriate wardrobe - that is, formal wear that could ambiguously fit anywhere from the 1500's to 1800's on Earth.

10th-Sep-2017 01:10 pm - did somebody just say "weeaboo"?
textsfromhotland: (hacker voice I'M IN)
Hello! This Groove, aka Hinawa, bringing you a new character! This is Alphys from Undertale! She's a massive nerd of the anime and science variety, and also she's a lizard of some kind. She's coming from the King Mettaton neutral ending, and if that means absolutely nothing to you, the short of it is: everyone Alphys cares about is either dead or forgotten about her (or so she thinks), she has a terrible secret she can't tell anyone about, and she's completely miserable. So, she ran away and joined the circus!

Here at the carnival she's going to be working as a repairlizard and lighting tech (and probably doing some mad science on the side)! Being the massive weeb that she is, expect her to talk about anime a lot. HOWEVER, she won't break the fourth wall with any anime characters here (unless you wanna do that, then hmu). My plurk is over here if you want to plot!

5th-Sep-2017 08:48 am - +1 android
dressedtothe: (yeah yeah)
Hi all, it's TEN again bringing you 9S from Nier: Automata! He'll be working as a Repairman with parttime Scout duties :>

9S is a highly advanced android coming from an Earth several thousand years in the future where humanity fled to the moon and the androids are waging a war against the alien created machines that have taken over Earth, the androids attempting to take back the Earth for humans to re-inhabit the planet. Or something.

Despite being in service to humans, 9S has never actually met a human before, so his knowledge of them is based off thousands of years old fragments of history and the AI of his fellow androids, all of whom are mimicking humans. It's a recipe for hilarious misunderstandings and teaching him all the wrong things about humanity. Overall, 9S is a curious cat and will poke his nose into everything, and has a sarcastic streak a mile wide that you'll start seeing once he realises that humans are actually a lot lamer than he thought they would be. He will also be coming along with his robot buddy, who he taught to fistbump.

Unfortunately, with 9S' acceptance, I've dropped Crow.

Looking forward to playing off you all! I can be reached for plotting at [plurk.com profile] jesii, as well as in the Discord chat.

Hello, all. Name's Knux and I have made the ARC-V cast very, very happy! For my first character, I have brought in Yuzu Hiragi. She's kind of your typical redheaded tsundere type character who actually has a lot of mystery to her. Oh, and she also plays card games like the rest of her canon. For added fun, she comes in very early in the canon, which means all of those mysteries and such about her are still mysteries! Yay!

She'll be your newest cashier (which is funny, since her manga counterpart was really into money) for this run.

If you want to get in touch with me, my Plurk is [plurk.com profile] AshBlaze. Glad to be aboard!
