Now that you've had a week to plan, this is the official role call post for the AU. Please reply to whatever header your character is included in with a summary of their role in Portland, with your character's name in the post subject. You can just copy and paste summaries used in the plotting post if you like, though for the same of mod plotting I would ask that you name and bold any of the following in your descriptions:
  1. Organizations: If your character is in a group or organization of any kind, please bold it! This will be important for the dispensing of IC clues and NPC attention.
  2. NPC Connections: If your character has a powerful NPC of any kind that they are connection to, please list and bold them. The mods will be writing some of these NPCs into the metaplot, and we can't do that if we don't know they exist!
  3. Meetup Points: If your character runs or is affiliated with anything that could be considered a supernatural hangout, it would be useful to make them easy to find, for the sakes of people who want to know what kind of places will be available in Portland for their characters to hang out.
Confirming your concepts in this post is not mandatory, but I would super appreciate anyone who does. If you do not reply to this post, your character will not be tied into the metaplot. Additionally, I will give everyone who does reply a +2 AC point bonus to their next activity check, per character they reply with.

Concepts are due May 31st.

Howdy, carnies and gentlenerds! I'm Ami, and I'm brand new here.

I'm bringing my FF14 character, Madhuri, into the mix. She's an upbeat, flirty bard and a dancer, and thanks to her abilities in the former, she's got that enchanted voice thing going for her. I thought, 'hmm, something siren-like', and built a character around that. Also, yes, the horns, scales and tail are all her own. She lived and worked in cabaret, and had always wanted to run away to the circus.

So here we are. Madhuri is a showman, and is tasked with creating and running her own show. Of course, she's thinking of cabaret (with maybe some normal shows sprinkled in to stay family-friendly, gosh)! So her question is: Which of y'all would look good in garters and stockings? I see some folks in the back who could raise their hands and live a little~ Don't dream it. Be it.

Anyway, my plurk is [plurk.com profile] MechaPony, and my discord is RainbowDonut#5538. I'm a little chatty and for the most part I don't bite. I nibble.

As for the folks I threaded with in the TDM- I'm so sorry! Got dragged off across the country for a wedding just after I tagged in. If you'd like to keep going, let me know, or I can just hit you up in an official sense here in the game and start fresh.

Anyway, here's her app for reference of personality and abilities if you need it. Nice to meetcha!

Hello all, my name is Pan and I am brand new, apologizing in advance for bringing you all the dumpster fire that is Zim from Invader Zim. Most of you are probably at least aware of the show, but for those who are not Invader Zim was a cartoon on Nickelodeon in the 00's by Jhonen Vasquez. It's mostly known for spawning really obnoxious catchphrases and helping make Hot Topic mainstream. Right now it's a comic and it's coming back for a movie!

Zim is a little green alien trying to conquer Earth. He is mostly terrible and yells a lot. I'm sorry. Here is a gif that sums him up:

I can be reached at [plurk.com profile] diremuta and on discord at pan#2663. I've got permissions/opt-out over here, because I know he isn't for everyone.

The Psionic here with a very important announcement.

The sense of camaraderie in our department is at an all time low. So, to fix this, attendance at Rex the Rat's birthday party is now mandatory for all Labor Department members. Also I will be bringing twister and you absolutely will have to play.

Chiaki may have gotten out of planning, but Lars, don't think you won't have to make the food still. And I think we have someone new so if your name is Adrien and you're listening to this, please go ahead and publicly introduce yourself. Yes you will have to come to the party.

If anyone knows any party games that will force people to get up close and personal, I'm open to suggestions.

Two things.

First, did anyone else plant the seeds the Ringmaster gave us after we got back from Hell? [ How many of the new people even know they've been to Hell??? Well whatever, it's not like it's a big secret or anything. ] They grow fast -- mine's already fruiting.

I want to try something, so let me know if you're up to donating some of yours for an experiment.

Second, engineering's working on getting a training yard set up in the forest. It's not all done yet, but there's space for sparring, exercise, and target practice if you need it. I expect to see all nightrunners out there, but anyone else can drop by if they're interested. Only rules are "don't kill your co-workers" and "you break it, you fix it."

I'll be there in the mornings if you need me. Strange, you can come by later, but don't think you get to slack off just because it's performance week.

Events leading up to this location will be as normal. After Mainframe, the carnival will go into its usual travelling/transitional period for a few days, with no particular warnings or expectations. Normally this would be where I explain how the characters will entering the setting and what they will immediately see, but this is not a normal occasion.

Mostly because no one will have any idea how or why the carnival entered this universe - in fact, they may not remember entering anywhere at all.


Portland, USA is similar to the one of our modern earth in many ways, even if some of those are purely superficial. Importantly, it is the urban fantasy equivalent, meaning that standard city life is underlain with a complex civilization of 'supernaturals,' whose actions have the tendency to shake the world in unseen ways. It's a common formula in the multiverse, and some carnival workers may even come from a world much like it. The major difference here is this world in particular has managed to pull the carnival into its snare in an unprecedented way.

From the start of this visit an onward, the carnival will be rewritten into this world's rules - and in more than just a superficial sense. On day one, your characters will find themselves having awoken into completely new lives, with potentially no memory of anything that came before. How exactly this transition took place will start out unclear, and this will be a plot heavy narrative centered around investigation and the discovery of what has happened, and how those trapped here can leave.

Twenty five years ago, this world underwent a process sometimes know as "the Severing", in which a magical ritual of great power was used to severe the ties between earth and a number of otherworldly realms that had been cross-inhabiting it. The realms of faerie, heaven, and hell were disconnected entirely, stranding many of their members on earth with no way of returning home. The details of this ritual and its purpose are elusive, but its effects have spanned the globe.

Most supernatural stuff in this world is simply referred to as "magic", which is built upon an animistic reality in which all living creatures and all objects have some essence of "spirit" that can be interacted with. Casting and ritual magic is primarily centered upon esoteric means of interacting with these spirits in order to invoke various effects, while the magic of many supernatural creatures are considered to be innate traits of their species.

NOTE: This is a setting where magic is basically a "known secret", in that many people are factually aware of the supernatural, but it doesn't get talked about in public. Most people have probably seen something weird at some point in their life, but the supernatural is not officially recognized in society. Most of humanity does its best to try to pretend it doesn't exist, in order to avoid gaining the wrong kind of attention. So, you couldn't talk about doing magic on live TV, but there are a lot of places where you could get away with people seeing your supernatural traits if you keep to the 'underground.'

[ When Strange starts talking, it's after a pause, like he's mulling over his words before he says them. ]

I think it's obvious that the realm the carnival resides in is exceedingly magical. People can learn spells even if they come from a world without magic and those with magic can find their talents pulled in ways they weren't expecting. [ exhibit A, Tamaki. exhibit B, Childermass. ] I think that it's also obvious that there's opportunity for a bit of chaos, especially from magic that someone from a non-magical world has just learned.

[ says the person who generally causes 75% of the magical chaos to begin with. Still, there's nothing condemning in Strange's tone as he talks about people messing things up...if anything, there's a hint of awe. Magic is awesome, after all, and he's so pumped that people in the carnival are picking up spells. ]

Most of you know me already but for those who don't, I am Jonathan Strange, magician and nightrunner. Obviously my duties to the carnival come first, but should anyone with magic, whether from their home or the carnival, want someone to practice, discuss, or explore magic with, I'll gladly offer my help! [ because he is a huge nerd and wants to see how everybody else's magic shakes out. ]

Of course, the offer of discussion extends to all the carnival. [ He can't help but laugh a little, tone obviously chipper. ] After all, you can still talk about magic even if you can't perform it!

A quick couple of questions for folks with nightrunner/engineering characters!

As you might've noticed, Lambert asked Peridot & the engineering types to come up with stuff for a training yard/obstacle course deal, to be finished by the end of their stay at Mainframe. IN RELATION TO THAT:

1. What would your character have contributed/suggested adding to it? This is mostly for descriptive purposes of what can be found there. FOR EXAMPLE: since Peridot thinks lasers should go on everything, higher difficulties on the course have optional lasers on everything. A short comment on this post will do!

2. Are people interested in a mingle/interaction log for construction activities/testing of various shit to go into it? FOR EXAMPLE: 'make sure your obstacle of DEATH is actually a metaphorical death, because literal death would be bad and make the doctors unhappy!' I kind of assumed most of the construction would be handwaved, but if there's any interest in that I'm happy to put one up. :|a Anyone'd be welcome to tag in with what your character's up to during this/sniff around what's going on.

So far the only features committed to are a small arena (for good ol' fashioned PvP/sparring) with a moat around it (also lasers for some reason?1), a obstacle course circuit that goes around the perimeter of the area, and drones that act as ~features~ for the higher levels of the obstacle course (which absolutely have lasers |D).

Hi guys, Kya (Susan's player) here with my second character - Adrien Agreste from Miraculous Ladybug. For those who don't know the series, Adrien is the son of a famous fashion designer, and so even though he was raised with tons of money and the like, he's also been kept cooped up at home his entire life. Overall he's a good kid, and his only real talents are things he's done as extracurricular activities - fencing, piano, Chinese, and modeling. Secretly though Adrien is also a superhero - using the ring he always wears, he can transform into the superhero Cat Noir, who has all the usual superhero fare skills-wise - enhanced strength, speed, flexibility, etc. - as well as the ability to destroy any one thing he chooses per transformation. It's pretty sweet.

Adrien is going to be a game operator here, while as Cat Noir he will be a daredevil! He's going to try to keep up the whole superhero secret identity thing, at least at first, so expect silly shenanigans there as he tries to keep those two lives and jobs separate.

Anyways, feel free to check out his info post and app if you like, and if you haven't added me on plurk yet you can find me at [plurk.com profile] moirallegiance!

[Jeez, Ginko feels like he has been on the radio a lot lately. But he does sound considerably less distressed than the last time he made an announcement.]

Hey, so I know people might, uh… be getting tired of hearing from me, given recent circumstances. But it’s good news this time, I promise.

Our rat king, Rex, seems to be growing his seventh head, which makes him six years old now. If anyone wants to come by and see, he’s in the menagerie as usual; I’d recommend it, since this might be some of you guys’ only chance to see this. Uh… be careful, though, it can’t see yet, so it might be a little more prone to bite than the others. Just watch your hands.
