[After a couple of weeks of planning and work, Vatheon is ready to end their captivity.



Team One:

The information that has been brought out during the last Station Master session is that the Scientists are south from the outside barrier surrounding the Island. It appears they are on an Island on their own just out of sight from Vatheon’s Island. There will need to be a team to get through the barrier to get to the Scientists there to, hopefully, apprehend them and bring them to justice. The Station Master wants them to answer for what they have done.

If using the Corridors were the plan, then sending someone ahead of time to run recon of how far the Island is would be a good thing to do. Going gung-ho would also be an option. It’s entirely up to anyone involved.

There is also a broken submarine characters can fix up in the old Lab.

Those are just suggestions and there are other ways to go about this as well if anyone chooses to be part of the break-out-of-the-barrier-to-get-to-the-scientists team.


Team Two:

There is the problem of Fluffy guarding the barrier. A team needs to injure, kill, or otherwise subdue the giant Mosasaur. This should be accomplished while Team One is breaking through the other barrier.

If anyone Feferi wishes to distract or even befriend Fluffy, now would be a good time. As long as they hold his attention long enough for Team One to break through the barrier, then it'll work.


Team Three:

Team Three will need to guard the City as well as go after the Head Nurse. This should happen at the same time that Team One has landed on the Island. They need to take out the Head Nurse and the Scientists close to the same time in order to keep one from tipping off the other. She may use curses to get the upper hand and, if her April Fool’s Day prank was anything to go from, is very ruthless.


Finale:

When everyone has finished their parts with the Head Nurse either disposed of or apprehended and the Scientists all locked up in the old Lab back on Vatheon Island, the Station Master will contact the outside to get authorities to send boats to Island.

Everyone will have a choice to stay in the world that Vatheon is part of or go back home.

Seems like crime has taken a step up from just purse-snatching or someone stealing forty cakes when no one was looking. Those with a great sense of hearing or who happen to be at the wrong place at the right time will find that the good people of Vatheon are in danger. It's up to anyone who is willing to help to work together to save the day!


Something is happening in the lower district! )

Something is happening in the middle district! )

A string of crimes happening all over the City! )


Something is happening on the Network! )

[They may also wind up stumbling or following a goon back to the actual secret base to listen in on a meeting at their own risk. Good luck!

19th-Apr-2013 11:21 am - All bubbles pop eventually
thalassino: (Default)
Yesterday was a day of celebration. For once, it seemed that the foreigners were able to affect the coral, and in a positive way at that. The coral lit back up, the barrier strengthened, and everything looked like it was back to normal again.

Unfortunately, it doesn't last.

Overnight the coral begins to dim again, flickering wildly along with the bubble itself. Those who stayed up on the island might notice the strange lights coming up through the waves if they're awake. The ones who stayed in the bubble will notice more than that. The atmosphere is tense, and every now and then there's an echoing crack, like a massive piece of glass is slowly losing its integrity.

By the time the morning arrives, the crack in the bubble is evident. After hours of threatening it, the crack finally falls open with a thundering snap, allowing the ocean to rush in. It hasn't yet given up entirely, but there's a steady stream of water pouring in to the plaza and on to the coral. The waterfall would be a pretty sight if not for the situation.

Hopefully no one stayed down there that long.



((OOC: The bubble has cracked! Feel free to use this post as a mingle log if desired. The elevator is still functioning, so anyone down in the bubble will have some time to escape.))
14th-Feb-2013 04:05 pm - EVENT - VALENTINE'S DAY
thalassino: (Default)

◣ VALENTINE'S PARTY ◢



The host club's doors are closed for most of the morning, locals scurrying in and out with an odd flair to help set up for the big event. That sure is a lot of pink and red being carted inside. They must be going all out for this Zelos fellow. Who knows why.

Residents that wander around the plaza for any reason will find a local approaching them, hyping up some aspect of the party that might appeal to them. The lights, the music, the dancing! The chance for gossip! Here, if your date goes poorly, we'll treat you to a drink. If your date goes well, we'll treat you to a drink. If you just want a drink for the sake of it... hey, you get the picture! It's something for both the single and taken alike, and the people of the city seem to be more than happy reminding you of this fact whenever they can.

When it hits noon, all characters who have signed up for blind dates will receive an anonymous text. They will be wished a Happy Valentine's Day, congratulated on their upcoming date, and be asked to arrive at the host club between 5:30 and 6:00 pm. They will be given more instructions upon their arrival. And wear something flattering~! <3

BLIND DATE INFO )

At 6:30, the club is opened for everyone else. Feel free to adventure up to the bar or glance around at the couples. They might be a little unrecognizable, what, with those strange masks on. They look so familiar, but you just can't place who is who. Oh well. Mingle a bit and solve the mystery with those around you! Have a drink. Talk about your love life or lack thereof. A bartender is always there to lend you an ear.

At 7:00, the tables are cleared, the lighting is dimmed down, music is turned up, and the center of the club becomes a dance floor! Plush red couches line the edges for those that have had a rough night, and small tables of chocolates, sweets, heart-shaped h'orderves and various colors of roses dot the area. Locals are working alongside the host club and maid cafe to make sure things are kept in stock. No getting close to the bar if you're under-aged or we may just have to end your evening right here and now!

Characters: [community profile] vatheon + an eventual mystery guest star
Location: island + new area
Time: all week starting monday
Style: any
Status: open - threadhop & theadjack away

[ after the kicked up damage wrought by yami in the south forest quadrant settles down and becomes surveyable by monday, characters are in for a little— or, well, a big surprise that is the secret research facility. the entrance of it is easy enough to find, thanks to the destruction— although a lot of the research facility itself is destroyed as well. the power still works, at least! although whatever network it had seemingly been hooked up to is currently (and likely permanently) offline.

near the ENTRANCE of the facility, characters will likely find a very large chart on one of the walls— it resembles a map with handwritten annotations and will undoubtedly prove useful in further exploration. there's nothing else interesting near the entrance, sans for a few empty desks and a trash bin full of what appears to be torn up employee information of some sort. the other areas that can be found will be as follows:

DORMS

↪ pretty self-explanatory, although they are extremely minimalistic and completely abandoned. it's likely that the scientists made use of these— some of the beds seem a bit unkempt, as though they were recently used; whereas some rooms have full garbage bins with various papers. many of them are unuseful or flat-out irrelevant, others appear to be outdated schedule data— the dates on most of the papers seem to be from a little over a year ago. basically, the bins are filled with what they were made for— trash.

VARIOUS LABS

↪ deeper into the facility, it's obvious that quite a lot of research had been being conducted within— multiple rooms seem to be arranged for just that purpose. most of the rooms are empty or have a lot of strewn tools within them as though they were emptied in a hurry. although one room in particular was left as it was; it's both locked and blocked off though, and might take a little force in order to get into. once inside, a completely white room will be found that might feel familiar to people who had been directly involved in a strange event that had happened quite a while ago... the room is slightly less white than any "experiments" might remember, however. in fact, there seems to be quite a bit of dried blood about the place. the blood can be found on nearly everything in the room— the table accompanied with surgical tools, the cabinet filled with both syringes and old vials of a blue fluid, and a prominent list visible on one of the walls.

MAIN LAB

↪ one lab in particular found further within the facility appears to be bigger and better than all the others— it's also the only lab with a multitude of computers. due to the power being on, computers will be responsive— although because whatever network they once runned on is no longer online, the only data accessible is offline data found within any harddrives or memory devices.

and there is plenty of that. however, any data found is heavily encrypted and unlike anything ever seen before, so even a normally excellent hacker will have a problem getting past the security walls; and the only file that can be opened immediately seems to make no sense whatsoever:

w3spEvU3


furthermore, nearly everything resembling paper evidence has been torn or shredded, as evident by the completely empty and ajar file cabinets— not to mention the fact that there are plenty of scraps of unreadable paper strewn across some parts of the floor.

SUBMARINE EXIT

↪ in the deepest part of the lab is a peculair hallway that seems to drop downward— which is curious, since the facility is located so closely on the edge of the island itself. although everything becomes clear should one reach the room near the end of the lowering hallway— a majority of the equipment is damaged, but it is indeed a submarine exit of some sort. could this be how all of the scientists left so suddenly..? in fact, most of the submarines are missing— sans for one, but it's quite old and probably nonfunctional in its current state. you're fully allowed to try and fix it, but it will take both a team of people and several weeks.

CONTAINMENT UNIT

↪ also in the deeper part of the facility, although closer to the main lab than the submarine exit, is a completely closed off area— mechanical doors and a digital lock that seems to be online block all from entering. the door seems to open automatically for a keycard, but there's also an emergency override function— that activates via a password. blinking in an almost mocking fashion, it prompts you:

11th-Aug-2012 03:29 pm - Do You Have the Resolve?
eternaldarkness: (➊ First Form)
Who: The invading Yami, Those who become brush gods, and other fighters on the Island.
Where: The Island
When: Saturday (all day)
Style: Action
Status: Open!

[After a whole evening of fighting, Yami finally relinquishes something - an orb of light that was ripped from Amaterasu. It's the power of Bloom, and it finds its host in leu of Amaterasu.

There is hope, now. With the power of bloom, the core can be exposed and progress can be made in this fight. Cooperation is key, and timing is crucial.

↪ Last leg of the First Form. In the morning, Yami's first form struggles to hold on. Bloom, Rejuvenation, and Power Slash are released.

↪ The Second Form. After a long battle, the sun should be rising... but there's a shroud of darkness over the sky, and Yami changes shape instead of succumbing to defeat. With aid of the brush gods, Cherry Bomb, Waterspout, and Crescent are released.

↪ The Third Form. Crescent summons the spirit of a warrior, known to Amaterasu as Nagi, that slices Yami in two. Yami roars, but changes yet again. It's around midday, yet still pitch dark... but there's light illuminating the casino-like panels on Yami. When the right panels are struck, Galestorm, Inferno, and Veil of Mist are released.

↪ The Fourth Form. The sun should be setting now, and the darkness grows darker. Yami assumes a more powerful form, that's extremely mobile and even more dangerous. For the persistent and the brave, as well as the large number of freed Brush Gods, they will deal a fair blow. Catwalk, Thunderstorm, and Blizzard are released. With all 12 free, it should be a cake walk, right?

As the hour reaches midnight, the darkness reaches a peak. Yami shifts into its final form, casting all into impenetrable darkness. Its shell is perfectly guarded, and until the dark is lifted, Yami is invincible. Only a miracle can save you now...]

When: friday evening - saturday evening
Style: any
Status: open - threadhop & threadjack away!

[ all friday evening, the locals have been very accelerated - you might find one shoving a flyer on you or handing you a pair of cheap sunglasses. the flyers more or less explain the reason why, and if you didn't get one you'll be receiving a message on your SFC regardless - ]

ECLIPSE ON THE ISLAND TONIGHT!! COME JOIN US!!

[ apparently there's to be an eclipse this evening. the entire bubble itself will be darkened as it usually is at night sans for electrical lights and the coral, but the real show will be able to be seen on the island. it sounds interesting, so maybe you want to check it out? a lot of other people are going—

although if you do decide to visit the island that evening, you might be in for an unexpected surprise. sure, the eclipse itself is pretty fantastic and not a thing one would expect to be able to see in vatheon of all places, but there's something else on the horizon... ]

Characters: FISH OLYMPICS PARTICIPANTS and whoever wants to watch
Location: ISLAND
Time: Allllll dayyyyy
Style: First
Status: OPEN. threadhop, threadjack, be competitors


Shark Wrestling

[The shark is ready and waiting in its pen, its eyes angry and its teeth properly capped. Still, probably a better idea not to fall down that gullet.

Every team gets three tries. The same poor sod going at it three times? Flipping a coin? A strategy where the two heaviest members try to wear the shark down first before switching up? You go for it. Just remember.

Get off of its back.]



Squid Painting

[Much like underwater basket weaving. Except with squids. And paint. And not much weaving.

But I bet you could paint an underwater woven basket.]



Seahorse Water Polo

[A beautiful sport combining the elegance of horseback riding and Marco Polo. No wait. water polo. Yes. That.]


Jellyfish volleyball

[No worries, the jellyfish aren't really. They can still give you a nasty sting though. Good thing that medical tent is close by enough.]


Betta Race

[Lets just hope those bettas made it through the week!]


Poetry Recital

[Come here to recite your amazing fish poetry. Berets and bongos available on request.]


Triathlon

[The final and toughest event. Struggle to shine in this test of the elements. Or at the very least, don't die on our watch.]



MEDICAL TENT

[ the head nurse arranged for this citing that she knows you're all a bunch of idiots. ]


[And with that the Fisholympics have come to an end. The fire is doused, the shark is de-softjaws-ed and the bettas, well, you can keep those. So long, Vatheon. And thank you for all the fish(olympics).]


As an added note, we know some of this stuff isn’t the easiest to play out--but this is also a great space for team shenanigans before and after the events as well. Feel free to use this log for things like that as well!

[ And thus with the opening of the festivities came the poor harassed native who had to run his way up through the elevator (he jogged in place) and all the way around the island to the beach where the majority of the events would occur--

Carrying one of these beauties. Yes, that is a glowstick trident.

The natives are cheapskates, okay.

Regardless, there is quite the crowd there watching you all compete. May the...best (?) team win? ]


WEDNESDAY - WATER PAINT BALL

[ in the small, pleasant forested area near the elevator, there have been left what look like, well, bazooka launchers. Your ammo? Water balloons with colored water in them. It’s hard to say what the natives put into them, but that color sticks. You can throw the balloons or you can shoot them at each other or really, anything goes.

The team with the last person standing, not soaked and not colorful, wins!

This is a full team event, and friendly fire is a thing, so be careful! Or don’t. That’s cool too.]


THURSDAY - FLY FISH SKIING

[ viewable from a distance, there are 8 platforms set out in the ocean, each with a large banner hanging above them with each team’s respective betta printed on them. tied to the platforms and ready for racing are four of these per team (each about the size of ice skates); they appear to be in a set of two, if the way the harnesses connect two together is anything to go by. contestants are expected to strap them on their feet, and use bridles for steering. they’re a little tricky to maneuver and can be a bit temperamental, so good luck!!

the racing course is set to a marker about a half of a mile out at sea; retrieving the flag and bringing it back first makes you the winner! ]


FRIDAY - SAND CASTLE BUILDING

[ build a sandcastle.

Kicking other team’s sandcastles over is probably against the rules but it’s not like anyone is watching so. Don’t build it too close to the waves, either; you don’t want them washing away your work of art. Your tools are buckets, shovels and whatever you can find on the beach.

Go wild.]


FRIDAY - SWIMMING RACE

[ contestants will swim a pre-set track, spanning across the course both above water and underwater. the track is marked by buoys above, and hoops below. the underwater section appears about halfway through the course. the participant to reach the end of the course first wins! hopefully you’re a good swimmer. ]

MEDICAL TENT

[ the head nurse arranged for this citing that she knows you're all a bunch of idiots. ]

As an added note, we know some of this stuff isn’t the easiest to play out--but this is also a great space for team shenanigans before and after the events as well. Feel free to use this log for things like that as well!

Characters: Fish Olympics participants and those who would like to laugh at them cheer them on!
Location: Center plaza!
Time: Evening, Sunday
Style: Whichever suits
Status: OPEN, threadjack away!

[The natives were rather insistent at shoving people towards the center plaza this night. Very insistent indeed. So insistent it is rather hard to escape their grabby hands.

And when they've gathered as many foreigners as they can, they tell everyone the teams.

It's with a smile that the foreigner who seems to be in charge of this all says 'Good luck, teams! And please, be teams.' but then he is waving them off to go meet each other.

Also to hand out betta fish. Try not to lose your fish already, alright?]
