◣ Mod Update ◢

☆ News - - -

TAKEN CHARACTERS, PLAYER CONTACT, RESIDENCY POST, and other things have been updated.
Don't forget to comment to any of the pages if you have yet to do so!

Applications will be closed and Reserves cleared out at the end of Wednesday (EST).

Activity Check will begin on Thursday.

There is something important we would like to announce. From this point on, Vatheon will officially be moving towards end game. What does this mean? Right now, nothing yet.

Not to worry, the game won't suddenly be closed next week or anything like that. It will likely still take a couple of months, perhaps even half a year to get everything properly squared away. The exact timeline will depend a lot on player involvement and we will be communicating it with you every step of the way so nothing will come out of nowhere.

Our reasons for this decision are varied, but mostly they come down to two things. First off all, we are all coming to realize that we (as mods) have less and less time for the game, mainly due to real life obligations, and we do not think we could pull off another whole mod team renewal. In addition to that, Vatheon has trucked along quite steadily for three and a half years. Quite a while for a largely slice of life type of game, which, to be honest also means we are starting to run short on things that we can still do without falling into constant repeats. We've also noticed that things are slowing down on the player end of things, which is not something that we mind, but it is something that we are taking into account while making our decision.

We have a plan in mind for ending the game, a plan that should hopefully offer a satisfactory end both ICly and OOCly, but as always, such plans depend on player involvement too. That is why we'd like to start working on those plans now, while we still have enough activity to properly pull off a bigger plot instead of letting the game slowly peter out without any solid conclusion for anyone involved.

The reason why we are bringing this to you guys now, despite the fact that it will probably still take a couple of months is that we don't want to spring anything on anyone. We want to give people the chance to still finish up any personal plots they were hoping to run.

In addition, we also want to know if there is still any curses (or repeats of curses) you really want to see so we can fill the time between now and 100% total end game with as much enjoyable things as we can.

(And to already lift a tiny bit of the secret mod veil, we are going to try and run the end game in such a way that the game, or at least parts of it, can be converted to a musebox type deal where people who are still interested in playing can continue to do so.

Also someone might be reappearing after a long absence.

Also Head Nurse might rampage through the bubble riding a t-rex that is riding the kraken. Okay no, I just made that one up.

Or did I?)

It'd be funny~ but I more want Sora to act more like Vanitas or just do bad things. It's all Saix's fault for calling him a murderer XD

I suggest some form of memory swap curse with all the force of a thousand burning suns and a million churning seas.

I really want to do a tabula rasa curse... where no one remembers anything about who they are and has to work it out based on where they are, what they have on their person, and who they're with.

Curse suggestion!

I know it's been done before I would love to see a body swap curse!

[personal profile] detectiveprincess 2013-07-29 08:38 pm (UTC)(link)
Not sure how plausible this would be but how about a time-period based curse? Like choose a time frame (Renaissance, Medieval, World Wars, etc) and have the curse based in that time frame.

Or perhaps a curse based in Avalon (gargoyles, faeries, mages, dragons, etc)...

I know not real creative, but just a couple thoughts there...

Curse idea

[personal profile] mysterious_groper 2013-07-31 06:03 am (UTC)(link)
Towards the very end, when we start finding out what's responsible for the curses, someone hacks the control systems or cause enough to trigger a curse for dealing with some kind of oncoming threat.

The curse's effect? The characters get to take one previous curse they've experienced, and take the benefits from it. They still have their normal abilities, memories, etc. - so this is a "Buff For Boss Fight" situation.

This is not the account I use for Vatheon, so I apologize. But I'd like to see that dream curse we had during the crossover with Somarium. I feel like a lot of people missed out on it.
