This has, unfortunately, been a while in coming. It’s been pretty obvious for a while now - the game has stalled. (This is Kia in particular stepping up to take responsibility for that - it got away from me and I failed to go after it. I owe you all a pretty big apology.)

To that end, we have three options:

1. New mod team. The current mods hand over the game - all the plot notes, the plans, the passwords, everything - to a new mod team. We’d still be here, but we wouldn’t be running the show anymore. This option is predicated on you guys wanting to take over the game/be the new mods.

2. Abbreviated gameplay and endgame. We’d pretty much scrap further plans for the game, retool endgame to fit the point where we’re at now, and run endgame. It would allow a story resolution for the game and players.

3. End the game as is. This one’s pretty much exactly what it says on the tin.

It’s up to you guys at the moment: how would you like to see this go? The mods will do our best to work with whatever you choose.

Those of you paying attention in Ponyville may have noticed that the sun hasn't risen in 48 hours. It's been a very, very long night.

Those of you in Ponyville at dawn are in for a treat: a meteor shower streaks through the skies just before the sun rises. It seems that Luna's not behind this one; it's naturally occurring. A few seconds later, the teal blossoms on those trees in the orchard disappear, replaced by trees full of small, hard, gray apples instead.

~*~*~*~

It's Zapapple season! Building on that, we will have an event up in just a few days that will involve both action-oriented and noncombatant characters, so keep an eye out for that.

Those of you in Ponyville may have noticed something odd happen - a flock of crows soars across the sky, their flight pattern in the shape of an apple. At the same time, the brown leaves on the trees in the orchard disappear and star-shaped teal flowers grow on the trees in their place. Blue sparks arc from flower to flower for a minute or two before disappearing, though the flowers remain.

As you may have noticed, the first Element of Harmony has been found! Of course, there are still several open ones that need to be claimed. That's where this post comes in - if you think your character is eligible for an Element of Harmony, this is the place to chime in!

There are four Elements available: Magic, Honesty, Loyalty, and Kindness.

If you think your character should be able to earn one, leave a comment telling us which character, what Element you think they'd be able to earn, a few sentences why you think that's what their Element should be, and a description of their cutie mark. All comments will be screened.

If your character is chosen for an Element, they will need to participate in one or two upcoming events, likely in February or March. These will go at usual event pace (one tag per day). If you don't think you can tag at that pace for the duration of an event (usually a week long, give or take), then this may not be the best thing to volunteer for.

Sign-ups will be open until January 22nd, at which point the mods will pick the new Elements of Harmony.

Those brave enough to venture onto the Mother of Invention will notice it's a bit less...stable than normal. The artificial gravity doesn't give out, but "LIFE SUPPORT SYSTEMS: DAMAGED" flashes on computer monitors, preempting everything except the leaderboards. Additionally, characters may hear a high-pitched mechanical whirring on the ship; attempting to follow it to its source leads nowhere.

The training room FILLS had opened is now closed. FILSS is still unresponsive.

Because a spoonful of sugar helps the activity check go down, or something like that. Plus, it's been far too long since we've done one of these.

Post with your character, reply to other people's comments, meet some fun and interesting new people and get some threads and CR planned!

Here's a few guidelines:

Attitude: Their general demeanor.
Types of CR you're looking for: Cracky, serious? Anything in specific you'd like to play out?
Things you'd like to avoid: Anything that makes you uncomfortable or you're just not interested in.
Shipping: Interested? Not interested?
Backtags: Yes/No
Best Method of Contact: Private PM, Plurk, E-mail, AIM, MSN, Yahoo, tumblr, smoke signals, etc
Other Misc. Crap: Whatever else might be important

Now that the keyhole has been opened, the recurring dreams have stopped. The keyhole has disappeared, but should reappear sometime soon.

What this basically means is congratulations, you did the thing, but you don't get a new world quite yet. Carry on!

As some of you may know, App This Please is tomorrow! They changed the scheduling on us. We'd like to have an ad that's a bit more personalized, and that's where you come in!

If there's a particular canon or character you'd like to have in game, comment below with the character and canon and we'll include them in the ad! Leave comments before 9 PM PST tonight; we do still need time to write this thing.

And as always, when ATP does go up tomorrow, we do encourage you look through the Characters Offered post and invite people to Revenance if you think they'd be a good fit.

Okay! Activity check results are in, as are poll results. First, for AC:

Characters dropped prior to AC: Etna
Characters dropped as a result of inactivity: Casey Shraeger; Nashmeira II

Poll results say that we are going to stay at Week 10 for the next three OOC weeks. No week change quite yet - there are Reasons for this. :Db
revenancemods: (Default)
As those of you who've been keeping track of time know, this week is week change week! However, there's still a good amount of stuff going on in the mansion thread, and yes, there are Reasons For It. So this poll is a simple one!

...and not actually using the poll function, because that requires a paid account and that's not strictly necessary.

Should we do week change tomorrow or should we keep on with this IC week for another three OOC weeks?
- Change week
- Keep on with this week

If we do week change, we will probably not be including anything plot heavy - it'll be Just Another Week. This is mostly for record-keeping purposes.

Leave your vote in a comment below! We'll tally results tomorrow around noon PST.


Poll closed! We're staying at Week 10 for another three OOC weeks. Thanks for your votes!

Yep, it's that time again. Here's how it works:

This check covers the past week (3/13 - 3/20) as well as the Activity Check period itself (3/20-3/27).

Each character needs one log post or comment and one communicator post or comment to be considered active. Please comment below with your characters, the dates of their comments, and the links to their comments using the following format:

Character:
Log Post:
Comm Post:


So for example:

Character: Agent Washington
Log Post: 3/20
Comm Post: 3/18

The due date for this Activity Check is Wednesday March 27th. Please comment before then.

Any characters that arrived in the game during the Activity Check period (here, after March 13th) are exempt from the check. Hiatuses are also exempt.

We'll keep the results of the Activity Check brief. Most everyone was pretty good about checking in, and we're pretty happy with that. Thanks for making our lives easier, guys!

We've only lost two characters via inactivity this round: Dexter Grif and Dr. Nicholas Rush.

The reminder is pretty brief too: if you've changed your contact information - new email, new plurk, new AIM, anything - please comment to the Player Contact post and let us know. It helps if we can keep that page up to date.

Ladies, gentlemen, and Dream Eaters of all ages! This is just a quick reminder from your mods to please tag your posts with the character and the world. This is a bit more important now that we have multiple worlds - it helps keep things straight.

Remember, for comm posts, characters have multiple tags. The "character: name" posts are for the character making the post itself, and the "! name" tags are for characters commenting to the post. For example, if Character X made a post in Traverse Town and Character Y commented, the tags would be "character: X, ! Y, world: Traverse Town." This is only for communicator posts; for logs, all character tags are in the "character: X" format.

All character tags should be current as of this morning. If your character does not have a tag, please reply to this post and we'll get it taken care of.

Thanks in advance!

Hey all! It's time for our first ever Activity Check!

Here's how it works:

This check covers the past few weeks: 12/14 - 1/4 (it's a bit longer than it will usually be on account of the holidays) as well as the Activity Check period itself (1/4-1/11).

Each character needs one log post or comment and one communicator post or comment to be considered active. Please comment below with your characters, the dates of their comments, and the links to their comments using the following format:

Character:
Log Post:
Comm Post:

So for example:

Character: Agent Washington
Log Post: 01/03
Comm Post: 01/02

The due date for this Activity Check is Friday January 11th. Please comment before then.

Any characters that arrived in the game during the Activity Check period (here, after December 14th) are exempt from the check. Hiatuses are also exempt.
unrecovered: (Well...)
First of all, Merry Christmas! For those of you who don't celebrate it, happy Tuesday! We've got two quick things to cover here.

First, you may have noticed there's not a Secret Santa post up yet. That's because we figured that since you didn't have much notice to work on things, you'd probably appreciate a few more days. The Secret Santa post will be going up on New Year's Eve, Monday 12/31.

Second, because of the holidays and the RP slowness they entail, we're pushing Week Change back for an additional OOC week. The next week change will not be this Saturday; instead, it will be on Saturday, January 5th. This is also around when we'll have our first activity check, so keep an eye out for that.

That's it for now. Comment below if you have any questions and keep having fun!
