[With their investigation of Blaze Dudely's ship complete and still none of the Flavortown robots in sight, the surviving Champions amd their counselor have a little time to come together and share their findings. The communal living area of the pirate ship seems like the best place for that.

They may want to be wary though. There's still no sight nor sound of Blaze Dudely or his robots anywhere.]

[It's been about 24 hours since CT was killed. Blaze has made no other moves, and his robots are mysteriously absent.

In fact, it's almost too quiet.

But then there's a note in Pyrrha's PIP that...she didn't write.]

Look, most of our characters have lots of backstory to take advantage of, or headcanons for their future. This is the place to use it!

Prompts

1) People are suddenly shifting ages on the good ship Teremity! It's probably space waves and will fix itself in a day or two, so enjoy reliving your mispent youth.

2) You were always this age! Nothing bad is happening and you all already know each other and it's all cute af. A fluff option.

3) You are this age... and going through your round (or a remixed version) of your Airlocked season. Not for the REALLY young age downs!

round 3 endgame announcement!

Congratulations, Champions, and welcome to the official endgame for Round 3 of Airlocked! We have a few announcements for you with regard to how things are going to play out over the next few days.

As you’ve noticed, we've officially moved to a 2:1 OOC:IC day schedule for endgame, including the weekly log. This means that this week's weekly log only has Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, and that ICly the final investigation itself will be on Wednesday. OOCly, you guys have Sunday-Thursday to tag the weekly log, and as usual the final investigation will go up on Friday 9/22.

There is no AC post this week and the final investigation will require 100% participation in order to pass the activity/OOC portion of the final investigation.

Secondly, please remember that this is the third chapter of a five-part story. As such, not all the questions that you have can or will be answered yet. While the final investigation will be fairly standard, the final trial won't be a literal mastermind trial but rather something completely different and more similar to what went down in round 1.

We hope that we can give you a satisfactory ending to this chapter. We’d also like to throw out an enormous THANK YOU to all our players this round! You guys have been a fantastic bunch and we had loads of fun with all of you! We hope to see our dead having a blast in Deadland and our survivors keeping on keeping on into Round 5!

The other order of business is Reserves for Round 4! The reserves will be Saturday, 10/7, with apps due on Friday, 10/13. We have 20 slots open and the game is officially slated to start Monday 10/16.

If you have any questions, comment below. Otherwise, we do ask that all survivors leave a comment acknowledging that they have read this post.

Week 6, Monday Gathering

[ On Sunday night, all of the remaining survivors-- as well as Price and Blazely, should they choose to show-- will find an invitation under their doors. She won't force them, but it appears Fukawa has planned her first get together. She was anxious about it, because she'd never hosted... anything before. The idea of people not coming actually scared her. But she couldn't give up. She owed it to Leon. So there it is. The note reads as follows. ]
 
Monday, 12:00 P.M.
Mess Hall

I know I thought it was stupid when we first started meeting like this after trials. But it was an important act of solidarity I think. After this past week, it's more important than ever that we all come together. We've all lost people we cared about at this point and that's why that can't be allowed to happen again. It would be an insult to the person who's responsible for all of us standing her right now.

Things that hurt us have happened time and time again. But we always get back up. I believe that this group can put a stop to the killing.

If Hope's Peak taught me anything it's that no matter how bad it gets or how bleak the future looks, you should never lose hope.

I won't make anyone come but I hope you all do.

- Touko Fukawa -

[ She worked hard to set up food for everyone-- soup, pasta, sandwiches-- simple things but, enough for everyone to eat. Once there, she'll encourage them to share stories they haven't-- adventures they've had, people they're fighting for, things they still want to do... She wants to see them all strengthen themselves for the days to come. If they can then maybe... maybe this can be where they really end the killing.]

[Six weeks later, and fifteen people are dead. All of you have lost someone important, from friends to family to lovers. Yet there is still hope. Most of you banded together to protect your own yesterday, and with an entirely unexpected act of mercy from Blaze Dudely, it seems like the winds may finally be starting to blow in your favor. It even feels a bit warmer in the penitentiary this week, though tension still hangs heavy in the air.

On Sunday morning, the last of your memories will return to you. There is nothing for you now but - maybe, somehow - to find a way out of here.]



Sunday | Monday | Tuesday


(( Welcome to endgame, everyone! As you can see, this week will ICly be shorter, with endgame beginning for your characters on Wednesday, but rest assured, the final investigation/trial will still be on Friday and Saturday as usual. Keep an eye out for an OOC endgame post on Tuesday.

There will be no official AC this week, just a check-in, and all characters will now be at their true canon points. Also, Monday is your last chance for regains! Get those benefactor threads in! ))

[When the announcement sounds and the evidence gathered it’s time for a trial. When the remaining champions are all gathered by the docking bay doors they slide slowly slide open.

The two lines of sentry robots are there again, creating a border path from the docking bay doors to the circle of metal podiums. The podiums themselves were made of strange metals in red and gold and orange and black, each one etched with the name of one of the Champions. There are flood lights - like spot lights - in front of each podium. The lights on Oda, Akande and Leon's podiums have been turned off and their floating grey scale portraits have joined the six from last week.

Blaze Dudely stands on a repair deck on top of his ship, which looms over the proceedings ominously. His expression is still hard to read but his arms are folded across his chest and if you squint close enough there's a somberness about him that hasn't been at other trials.]


Ya'll know how this goes by now. [He's in no mood for pageantry this time.] Take the time ya need but don’t bore me.

You now know your entire canon! All of those things that happened before you were born, when you weren't in the room, after you died... it's all there, in your head.

...And in the mind of everyone else, for that matter. Now what?

• Comment with your characters. They now know everything that went on in their canon. Hooray for omniscience!
• Others comment to them ALSO knowing their canon. Oops.
• ????
• Profit.

[The invitations were sent out around mid-afternoon, each one individually addressed on the fanciest paper Varric could dig up in the arts and crafts room. The handwriting on it is crisp and legible, written by the type of hand who spent most of his life writing for others to read.]

We don't know what tomorrow will bring, so celebrate every moment you have with those you care about. Do so by joining me for a banquet at 7 p.m. Food will be provided, but budding chefs are welcome to bring their own dishes.

-Varric


[Everyone receives an invitation, most of which are taped onto their respective doors. Two go beneath Price's door -- one during Blaze's hours, the other during the doctor's own.

When seven comes along, the smell of food wafting from the mess hall would serve as a secondary invitation, for those who might have missed the first. Some of the tables have been moved along a wall, enough to house a decently sized feast and to accommodate the aforementioned extra dishes. The food ranged from roasted something-or-other (Varric didn't ask questions, simply cooked and seasoned it like poultry), his trademark stew, salad and veggie trays, and even some fresh baked bread.

The rest of the tables had been moved to form a long table, enough to fit the remaining inmates and their superiors. Each person has an assigned seat, though you're more than welcome to get up and mill about with one another.Though the trays were stacked near the food, glasses were laid out and filled with the closest substance Varric could find to a good toasting wine.

Hope you like Spape Juice.

Most notable is the backdrop to the table. The names of those they'd lost along the way had been reprinted and hung with care. Everyone was invited, after all.]

So close to feeling alive...

Afterlife Masquerade


We all know that life is a party, but what if death was too? Welcome to the afterlife masquerade, where you can mingle with your fellow tethered spirits, or maybe get that last dance that you didn't get a chance to while you were alive.

All the deceased guests at the masquerade wear a mask that's somehow based around the way that they died, like one themed around smoke and ashes for someone who died in a fire, or crumbling earth for someone buried alive. The suit or gown can be a little less literal, either a thematically matching version of what they were wearing when they died/what they were buried in, or something new altogether. Only living, dreaming guests can see the masks, however.

And as for the living? Well, for the living a masquerade is a dream, a fancy ballroom full of familiar forms in beautiful masks. However, even though the voices of the people in the masks are familiar, their identities are always just out of reach. You've had worse dreams, though, might as well enjoy the music and the dancing and the company, however mysterious it is.

1) You didn't get to heaven but you made it close: There are a lot of people here, and while you're waiting for the living to join you now's as good a time as any to get to know them. You can't see each other's masks, but you can look in the punch bowls and watch those you left behind.
2) Love is watching someone die: Maybe you're bleeding out or teetering on the edge of life and death; either way, you're not long for that world, but luckily it seems like the next one isn't too bad either. Maybe you'll see a familiar face, as the masks come off.
3) Almost believing this one's not pretend: You've been having these dreams a lot lately, about a masquerade ball full of people each wearing their own colorful, unique masks. Might as well dance while you're here, even if you can't put your finger on why your partner seems so familiar...

[Five weeks in, and suddenly your numbers have been reduced by a lot. All evidence of Oda's methodical slaughter has been wiped away by the robots, but getting rid of the memories isn't going to be so easy. Not to mention the emotional scars.

Again on Sunday morning, you'll find yourselves with some new memories and some new items. Today, however, there are no new rooms.]


Sunday | Monday | Tuesday | Wednesday | Thursday



(( ooc: Don't forget to turn in your AC for Week 4, submit your memory regains, and put in your Benefactor threads! ))

check-in #4

Sep. 10th, 2017 01:18 pm
airlockedmods: (SPAAAAAAACE)
[personal profile] airlockedmods posting in [community profile] wearethechampions
It's that time, everyone! Weekly check-in!

Living characters must submit two ten-comment threads with two different characters per week. Dead characters need only comment to check-in as a formality. Threads must be from week 4 or the afterparty log.

Check-in will close at 12 pm EST on Friday (9/15).

As a reminder we will also be awarding incentives as a reward for checking in on time! Submitting the minimum amount of comments for both threads (20 comments total) characters will receive one free item from the Benefactors. This is essentially the same as a free roll for the Benefactors' Hold. For another 30 comments (50 total), characters will receive a Sabotage/Boon. If you're a total all-star and turn in two threads that total 100 comments (or 50 from your character) in one week, you get a one-time Shield Token. This means if your character is approached with a Sabotage, you can spend the shield token to bounce that sabotage back on the character who targeted yours. Each character cannot hold more than one Shield Token at a time, and they cannot earn more than two Shield Tokens over the course of the game. The mods will reply to your AC with what rewards you have earned.

AC threads may come from the weekly mingle log or any player-posted logs from the check period, but since the trials have their own activity requirements they are ineligible for the activity check. When submitting your comments please add the number of total comments in the threads at the time of submission as this makes it quicker and easier for the mods to calculate if a Boon or Sabotage has been earned. On that note, remember that in order to earn a Boon or Sabotage you must have your AC in by 5 pm EST on the Tuesday of that week.

Failure to meet AC without informing the mods will result in a strike. Two weeks in a row will result in an automatic death roll. AC will go up on Sundays for the previous Sunday-Friday, and will close at 12:00 pm (EST) on the following Friday. Activity checks will be screened, to preserve some sense of secrecy for the distribution of Boons and Sabotages.

I don't wanna live my life again.

[This has got to be the worst day Leon's ever had. Besides dying the first time.]

[A little while after the trial is over, Leon going around sliding notes under everyone's door:]


Dear everyone,

Sorry my roommate went and killed 5 people like that. I really should have known he would try that (he is in the mafia, right?) but then again if his kids were still alive he wouldn't have been affected by that awful motive.

You know what, let's just try to survive without killing everyone. Ok? Too much to ask?

Max is making waffles in the kitchen if anyone's hungry.

- Leon.

P.S. Oda wrote a bunch of letters after the last trial and he asked me to give them to you. It's probably a good idea to at least look at it once before you tear it to shreds.


[The individual letters from Oda are attached to the invite. If your name is Will, you're also getting letters addressed to Dazai and Ango.]

[True to the letter, Max is making waffles in the kitchen. Apparently, waffles are the best way to cope after the mess of a trial we just had. Meanwhile, Leon has grabbed a pen and paper from the storage closet and... Seems to be writing something down. He doesn't look too hot himself...]

[Links to the letters: Akande, Fukawa, Will, Mozu, Rick, Varric, Pryyha, Noctis, CT, Soma. Leon already gave Max her letter.]
