Hi guys! We've decided to do everything we thought we would: overhaul, move, and introduce tap-dancing ducks. Well. The ducks don't tap-dance. But. Um. THERE ARE DUCKS C:

And it's technically Friday. This took a really long time to finish.

part 1: the moveCollapse )
part 2: the overhaulCollapse )


STILL WITH US? OKAY PHEW. The awful part is over.


Part 3: THE DUCKS


C:

part 4: actual explanationsCollapse )


And... I think that's it. I know this was A TON to dump, but we hope it's something that will renew interest and activity and not, uh, scare everyone away. WE LOVE YOU AND HOPE TO SEE YOU ALL THERE.

I'm going to start advertising frenetically tomorrow. In the next day or two, there'll probably be a couple tweaks to the layout and maybe adding/subtracting to the FAQ to make it less tl;dr, but there won't be any major changes.

Any comments/questions/WTFAREYOUDOOOIIIIING/GOD YOU SUCK/cute pictures of baby animals, please leave them here as usual, or hit me up on AIM. I'll get to them as soon as I can tomorrow. Thanks!

It's still technically Wednesday, right?

We're overhauling and moving and it's turned out to be a BIG PROJECT SO. UH. It's taking us a bit longer than originally anticipated, but everything should be done soon.

This is just a heads-up to let you guys know that we haven't forgotten you or anything. The real End Of Renovations post will be up tomorrow night.

CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS
4/10/10 - 4/14/10


Bwuh whaa huh? Overall, there's been a gradual decline in STO-related happenings since the game opened, so this feels like a good time to take a breather and evaluate. Me and Katiria are going to have a pow-wow and figure out if/how/why interest is waning, and see what we can do to fix the things that are going wonky and make the game more fun.

So... what does this mean for the players and the characters? Welllll... I have no idea right now. We may decide to overhaul the game, we may decide to move it, we may introduce tap-dancing ducks, we're not sure yet. But we will definitely keep in mind all the stuff you guys have been doing and everything you've brought to the table <3

We very much hope you'll all stick with us while we flail (or rather, while I flail enough for two people) and that any changes we make will be of interest to you.

There'll be a post up this coming Wednesday with details. And. Like. Coherency. Sorry for the mess. Any comments/questions/concerns, leave 'em here!

Katiria and I realize the game is still tiny, but that doesn't mean you should be bored and have nothing to do! So to that end, here's a discussion post where we can all chat and talk about our characters' relationships and things that could maybe spark some plots.

This is obviously optional! But if you choose to participate, please fill out the following form:






Meanwhile, we're also planning to have the monsters find their way into the town, and here's a poll about it.


Monster invasion?

Sounds awesome! Let's do it right this second.
1(50.0%)
Cool down on the mod-run plots for a little while, we want to come up with our own plots!
0(0.0%)
I have a suggestion that I'll leave in the comments.
1(50.0%)



That's all! Plot, enjoy, talk, be awesome.

new!  
Hi, everybody! I'm Sami, I'll be playing Summer Finn, whom you might recognize from the lovely (500) Days of Summer. She's quirky and brutally honest, but also loves to give hugs, so don't be afraid.

My IM is sea green sami and you can reach me at samcat.main@gmail.com.

Yay!

Hi everyone! I'm Laurey, (or Lauren) a newbie to this game but not to role playing. I'll be 24-years old on the nineteenth of this month. I'm psyched to see several of us living in the CST timezone!

St. Oldcastle will be my first pan-fandom; in the past, I've stuck to Harry Potter (Narcissa, Gabrielle) and Final Fantasy (Aerith, Rinoa) games. I'm very excited to bring you Rose Tyler, the blonde Companion of Dr. Who fame. I hope to see more Whovians around, but can't wait to start the crossover love! 8D

SOME THINGS:

- I can write Rose as if she's speaking in a dialect (i.e. "'ello" vs. "Hello"), BUT... I'd like to match what you all are doing. Is anybody else writing in a dialect, or are you writing normally and just reading the speech alterations in your head?

- WEST. Get ready to be hassled. Rose is going to see your Eccleston-face and think "DOCTOR!!"

- For Who fans - Rose is taken from AFTER Doomsday but BEFORE Journey's End. Thus, she currently works for Torchwood after being separated from The Doctor on Bad Wolf Bay. She has never met Meta-Crisis Ten; he does not exist.


Feel free to hit me up on AIM: LaurenInGame. I want to meet you all!

Just a quick note to let you all know that the event's over and everything's back to normal. I really should have posted this last night, but things got in the way and I sort of lost track. Sorry about that!

Anyway, carry on.

I'm just not feeling Neal right now. I'm going to give it a week and see if it gets better, but I also foresee me life getting busier. So don't hold your breath.

SO, I've kind of stank for the last week, haven't I? Basically I spent last weekend juggling a clusterfuck elsewhere, and this week/today I've been too busy/tired to get any real activity going anywhere. So I kind of missed this whole event and I'd like to give a super quick apology for that. Now, as it's like, 10pm and I'm already nodding off, I'm probably not going to be online much longer tonight, and I'm going to be out for most of tomorrow, but SUNDAY ONWARDS, I'll try and end my stupid unannounced hiatus :<

Love and hugs,

Cathy
