Hello? Excuse me? Hello?

[It is immediately clear that the person recording this is very new to the concept of cellphones, let alone video recordings. And for the moment texts are simply out of the question, after all it was only by sheer happenstance that Delmar stumbled upon the video record button in the first place. Therefore, the screen starts out all too close to a single bright brown iris as Delmar tries to ascertain if this strange little device is on but soon enough he gets his baring and holds it out at arm's length, blinking up at it shyly. His front teeth trap his lower lip a moment as he pokes a finger timidly at the screen]

Oh dear, I hope this is working. Hello [A little awkward wave] I am very sorry to trouble all of you, but I was, um, I was hoping to perhaps find a person who might know how to sew? I know a little but not enough for--Ah. Right I should show you, shouldn't I? 

[He daintily sets down the phone and shuffling noises can be heard as he grabs for something. After a moment he returns, holding up a strange teddy bear - lamp fusion ]

-- I was hoping maybe somebody could help me with this. I do feel sorry for him. I would like it very much if he could get the chance to be a real teddy bear. That would be nice, wouldn't it? 

[Delmar smiles at it a second before patting it and setting it back down somewhere offscreen.]

Thank you all very much for your time. I hope I have not inconvenienced any of you. 

[His eyes go wide as he is struck by his own forgetfulness ]

Oh- And my name is Delmar. Hello! 

[Another little wave followed by a bit more fumbling before the video ends]

Welcome to Hadriel's test drive, and thank you again for your interest in the game! As always, our reserves page is here, and our applications page is here! Reserves open August 25th, and apps are open September 1st. Please remember that there is an app cap of 20 apps.

Two quick points here as well:
1. Any thread made in Hadriel's test drive will be accepted as the sole Action Log sample in the application.
2. All threads made in the test drive can be considered game canon, either through handwaving or through a shared mental experience while coming through the Door!

Test drives will be broken up into specific god mini-events, during which your characters can see how well they fare under the watchful eye of one of the gods. Choose wisely or just simply pick 'em all, and have fun!





F E A R

SCENARIO ONE: SLIPPERY NAKED PEOPLE
[The Door brings in all that is chaotic and evil in the world. This may include you, may include the person next to you... and may include the monster behind you.

No big deal, but there's a freaky wall-climbing zombie thing stalking you. Maybe you should get inside? Or run. Or just accept death. This time, the Door has brought in some Descendants, from the Uncharted video game.

Descendents are emaciated, man-eating monsters that used to be normal people until affected by a virus - you know how that goes! Terribly, always. They are fast and agile and quite strong, and they will stalk you and crawl up walls and maybe break your neck if they can. Badass.]


S O R R O W / H O P E

SCENARIO TWO: THE FUTURE ISN'T BRIGHT
[You found a mirror. It's your mirror, created just for you, and when you look into it - well. You might not want to look more than once, because it shows an image of the worst possible future you could imagine for yourself. Maybe you're dead. Maybe someone you love it. Maybe you've lost everything. Basically, it sucks.

What are you gonna do? Throw it away? Smash it? Keep looking over and over because you love pain? Or maybe someone else threw theirs away, and you're the one that found it. You really, really want to look. Invasive, maybe, but your curiosity is killing you. Just a peek...

This is a mini version of our Bad End event this month.]


L O V E

SCENARIO THREE: VISIT ME AND EXPLAIN YOUR PASSIONS
[You know that totally inconsequential hobby? The one that you love? Or maybe your favorite TV show or comic book? Wouldn't it be great if you had someone to talk to about it? Someone who would listen patiently while you explain the family tree from that obscure fantasy novel you reread every year?

Well, wait no longer! Your time is now! The moment you make eye contact with someone, you'll know they want to listen to you explain your obsession. They've just been waiting and hoping you'll come along and educate them! So go to town, buddy, tell them all about your waifu.

Or maybe a stranger just walked up to you and started talking about their favorite knitting pattern. That's... cool. Are you gonna interrupt them? Walk away? Get into an argument about how your favorite knitting pattern is so much better? Now's the time to show your passion, or possibly your complete disinterest! Go for it!]

As it seems this place has stripped me of my students, I have decided I ought to find another one, perhaps two.

[Probably one. He's not holding his breath here.]

If you have any interest in learning glyphcrafting -- perhaps some minor magics as well, should you show potential -- please fill out an application. I have left them at the Clinic with Kate Galloway for accessibility.

[And also so he doesn't have to meet people in person to hand out these things.]

Thank you.

[Rosen has now been in the cave going on 7 months. He's marked out the time on his laptop,  little digits scribbled here and there between his thoughts and observations. 7 long months and as he scrolls through his records, inconsistent as they are due to the lapses in his mental capacity over the past few months, he finds certain reoccurring issues. Most are to be expected, issues of loneliness, fear, and an overwhelming sense of uselessness. However, there are others. Ones that keep him awake late into the night. One's that linger in the way he chews at the corner of his mouth or the way he uncomfortably flexes his fingers.

Prominent among those that he can't help but pick at like an annoying scab is the question of killing. A question that has always dogged him in his very specific line of work and now weighs heavily on his thoughts once again. It is not a coincidence that only a few days earlier a certain friend of his appeared in the clinic wounded and that this same friend subsequently posted to the network asking about the procurement of more bullets for his gun, a weapon that had been implicated as part of the problem in the events that lead to his injuries. 

Lee also hasn't forgotten a certain conversation he had with this same friend weeks earlier, a conversation during which Lee had hoped to convince them to use an alternative and less deadly form of self-defense. Rosen's hopes had inevitably been dashed and though he's tried to let that go, the thoughts that had driven him then are still festering now. 

So now he types out a question, having decided to pose it to the cave as a whole.] 

 

Under what circumstances do you think taking a life is justified?

Yo, everyone! [ Been a while since you seen this lovely lady's smiling face on the network, huh? Of course, those familiar with her stunts so far know that with a grin this big it's about to be something ridiculous she's addressing the network with. ]

How're you all liking your new decor? Good? That's great. Anyway, [ she starts, camera moving closer to her face as she starts typing something in addition to filming. ] I thought we could do something fun after all that alternate reality nonsense. Since I'm the only one left to keep the people entertained, I figured it was about time for...


🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥


[ That is some super obnoxious sparkly text coming across your screens, folks. Sorry she's not sorry for the burning of any eyes. ]

Alright, so! How this works is pretty easy. You gotta' post a picture of yourself with a piece of paper that has 'Roast Me' written on it. Or you can take a pic and just, like, put text over the image. Whatever. But for the authentic feel, I say go with the paper. I'll start!

[ Rose pulls back, holding up a pink piece of paper with Roast Me and bats her eyelashes. ]

Now, you have permission to insult the heck outta' me based on what you see. That's what 'roast' means in this case. Try and get creative! It's all in good fun, of course, and I won't take anything personally. I promise. Nor should you if you decide to participate! Though your friends are allowed to put you up here on your behalf. But just in case you don't wanna' potentially ruin any friendships or might be more of a sensitive bean than you thought... Anon stuff is allowed, as per usual.

So, come on guys! Tell me how you really feel.

(( ooc note; This follows the same rules as r/oast me on Reddit. Characters can post themselves or - with ooc permission, of course - have their cr post them instead. It's meant to be mean, but in a hopefully funny way. Of course, characters are allowed to get angry, upset, have hurt feelings, etc. But don't say Rose didn't warn you! ))

[Seel did not look amused. His almond eyes were narrowed, and while his androgynous looks might be beautiful, right now he looked positively bitchy. It had taken him a few days to recover himself after his murder and subsequent resurrection. He wasn't all there yet, it would take time. But he was well enough that he could put on a good front. Seel had a lot of practice after all.]

I didn't think I'd ever have to say this. But at least one of you have proven yourself to be so unpredictable and downright moronic that it deserves to be said.

Don't drink my blood. Don't touch my blood. That goes for Calanthe and Pellaz as well. It's a caustic poison and if you ingest it or inject it, you'll either die horribly or transform. We're not human.

Find yourself another snack or another way to satisfy your sick urges.

And I promise, any of you having similar thoughts, it won't be so easy.

[Seel repositions himself, folding his hands together to keep himself from fidgeting. He really wanted a fucking cigarette.]

Now, who around here would be the leading the Guard? As far as I can tell you are incompetent at best and willingly corrupt at worst. It was my understanding that you were supposed to keep law and order and protect the individuals here and those who cannot defend themselves.Clearly, your methods are not working. I suggest you find me before I have to go find you. At least make yourself look willing to change and accept help.

[ Like probably many people in hadriel, Duck hasn't had the best few months lately. Distractions are really good when things suck though. And of course hadriel is usually pretty good at throwing some kind of distraction at him - and this one actually isn't a bad one. Not really.

So, that brings him here; a skinny boy of around eleven or twelve, freckled face a bit too close to the video feed.
]

Hi everyone! My name's Duck. Those new houses in the city are pretty cool, right? I decided to move into one of them - look, it's this one - [ The camera moves to the side, showing that Duck is standing next to this slightly unsettling little house. It swings back to Duck again a few seconds later. ] See the face on it?

Anyway, it's really cool, but it's got nothing inside, and I was wondering if anyone would come and help me move some stuff? Not that I'm not strong enough, but... [ But he's not strong enough. Not to bring in all the funny looking furniture he wants anyway. ]

Well, I'd really owe anyone who helped me! I have some canned carrots, I could give you them as payment if you want.

Also... if anyone, like, wanted to live there too, that'd be okay! I wouldn't mind. Especially if we're friends already. Living by yourself is kind of... [ Insanely lonely and sometimes a little scary. ] ...I don't know, boring.


Oh, and also if any of you ever find any comic books around here, or if you have any from before you got here - you should show me! I'll show you mine too! Besides the ones I borrowed from Ellie, I haven't found any around here, and it sucks.

So. Yeah, that's it. Thanks to anyone who helps! [ And with a friendly wave, the feed cuts off. ]

Hey everyone! Just wanted to post to the ooc comm some things that were discussed on plurk, so everyone in game can chime in as you like. c:

It started with the recent update to the map... )

I think that covers the gist of it. Let me know if I missed anything, a lot of people discussed a lot of good ideas.

Note that this is NOT a finalized or even proposed thing. It's just a place for everyone to get our heads together where we can all see all the ideas and pros and cons pertaining to it. None of this constitutes approval or even intent to go forward with this, and I probably won't be involved ICly if it is something that gets agreed upon, submitted, and approved.

And now back to the weird furniture rain. 8)

[ The face that appears in the feed is friendly and smiling, very guy next door, his eyes sparkling with curiosity. Just a harmless dude with a question for the city. ]

Hey, Hadriel. My name's Drake, I'm... not exactly new, but figure I should introduce myself anyway since I'm about to ask a personal question. I'm from a human world where there isn't any magic. But I keep hearing that people here have powers and I'm curious what kinds. I've met a couple healers, and that's pretty amazing. And helpful -- thanks, guys, if you're watching.

So. What can you do?

You can ask me anything in return, but my answers probably won't be as interesting.

I found something too. I took a nap and it was just there, hanging over me, when I woke up. I thought it was part of a bad dream at first. I do not like it at all. I'm ninety-nine percent sure I'll add it to the 'cragslist'. I'm staying with Hannibal and Will, so I'll have to check with them to make sure they don't want it. Although I can't imagine they would.

[She knows Hannibal and Will would understand that it almost looks like something out her serial killer father's cabin. And no one else needs to know that part.]

This is it:

I used to hunt; I don't have a problem with using every part of an animal. But this, um, this just isn't my style. At least it doesn't smell like venison.

Hello, players of Hadriel! It's been an awesome almost-two-years with all of you, and we as mods have loved every second of running this game and playing with all of you awesome folks. We would absolutely not be where we were without you, and we want to thank each and every one of you, past and present, for participating in our game!

This OOC post comes with a few updates: we're searching for icon commissions from our many talented artists to represent the Null (and potentially some other creatures) in a few icons, we're discussing the merit of having a gamewide Discord chat, and for the first time since Hadriel opened, we will be looking for a new helper mod!

You know you wanna help out! )

So it's day 2 of Ikea madness,
and I figured we should set up some kind of cragslist situation,
so that people can get rid of things they really don't want.
Or if you for some reason feel like filling your house with this stuff
follow your dreams?

Anyway I found this yesterday:


[Attached is a photo of a very odd table, the front half of it, anyway. It's sticking out of an apartment wall at an odd angle, legs mostly horizontal. There's a second photo of the back half, which appears to be in another room.

A jacket is hanging off of one of the hooves. Looks like someone has found a use for it, at least.]


If anyone knows how to get this out of the wall
without like, destroying said wall
they're welcome to it.
But to be honest I'm kind of getting used to it.
Might call it "Dave".
This I'm not too keen on:


[Another image, this one of a kind of unsettling chair.]

Frankly you can just have it.
Please.


[Everyone is welcome to post their new furniture they don't want, or offers to acquire more. Michael is not going to moderate, but it's a platform at least!]

[Don't mind this jerk, he's been keeping to himself for several days, diligently learning as much as he can in private. Including how not to burn down a kitchen. But now, he's got an actual question for which using the network seems the fastest route to an answer.

I heard there was a clinic, here. If I'm going to be stuck here for a while...I might as well make myself useful. I'm a doctor - a surgeon. Who do I talk to about the clinic?

[World's worst beside manner, by the way]

Unrelated, but if anyone has suggestions for meals for someone who can't cook, I...

[his actual request is cut off by a loud thunk just off screen. Law turns to see what it is, and the twist of his head and shoulders tips the video feed just enough to let everyone see what has just appeared in his living room. He sure didn't teleport that there, so...]

...what the hell??

[She knows—because how could she not?—that all of these things are just more wayward debris brought in by accident or design. The timing’s a little different, but the geometries of the furniture that keeps showing up must mean that it, like everything else, is coming through from somewhere else. She knows; she knows. But it would be so unfair to treat this as if it were as terrible as everything else that’s happened to her so far. Why not choose to be pleased, just once?

Irisviel is filming herself from inside the apartment she shares with Saber. She looks pleased as punch.
]

Look what I found! [Her voice is filled with pride. A dramatic pan down of the camera reveals… a papasan-shaped chair made entirely of interlocking metal hands. Just hands. There are at least 13 hands here. Irisviel ducks back into the frame, beaming.]

It’s fascinating, isn’t it? I’ve never seen anything like it, even in the catalogs I used to look through! Ah, but getting it was a little different than ordering from a catalog, though.

There’s this, too! [The camera snaps back down to what is probably a tea table. It’s short enough and rectangular enough. It’s going to do a very good job holding tea, though: There are large pockmarks in the top surface, and the entire thing tilts to the left at a forty-five degree angle.] I think this is what’s called ‘true modern design!”

[After clapping a hand to her cheek and sighing dreamily, she continues.] I know the tone of this video is a little different, isn’t it? I haven’t forgotten what’s happening; I just thought, for a moment, something good might have come from it.

These things may not be able to stay forever...but I would like to see what you’ve found! And please tell me if you have any ideas for how to use this [the camera goes back to the “tea” “table”] or how to get the rest into the apartment!

[Wait, the rest?]

[ He's drawn to water, he always has been, and it's no different here. This world is strange, and although it is joyful to see again the dead, it is very strange, too, and he retreats, away from the bustle of his family, down to the water's edge with his harp, to try and get his balance back.

(He has to be well. Maedhros and Curufin will worry, if he's not. Elrond too. He can't let them see)

Anyone who walks past will hear it, although they might not realise that it is a harp, at first, but the song ripples, moonlight on the water, the stars clear above, the emotion carried through on clear notes that seem to blend into the sounds of the world around them despite there being no stars or moon, here. And then the voice, deep as the rolling sea, full of heartrending sorrow, but climbing to defiant hope.

Sometime during the performance the phone flips on, bumped, maybe, to reveal Maglor crouched over his harp, singing.

Pay attention, and the song will tell you a story, even if you don't know the language he sings in - war and blood and tears and light-against-the-dark. ]

Hey y'all! Lauren here. Been here before some time ago, but life pulled me off the internet for quite a few months (more deets via plurk). Good news though, I'm finally back.

I've brought Killy/Kyrii from Tsutomu Nihei's Blame! series, in celebration of the anime being released on Netflix recently. Kyrii is a synth on a mission to protect humans, a man of extremely few words and long uncomfortable silences. A side note, I'm still piecing together his profile to include some permissions and extra things. Sorry if things over there are a little wonky or briefly broken.

If you have questions about this guy, obv you can ask here or dm me through dw / plurk / discord(panndemoniuum#2163)!

[Lance is looking a little more awake than he has been the past two weeks or so, and also in a better mood; his expression and tone are both lighter as well when he addresses the camera.]

I guess everyone is working on solving mysteries at the moment, and I actually had something I'd been meaning to ask for a little while, so this seems like a good a time as any; I'm interested anything anyone is willing to tell me about their experiences regarding being skipped over during an event. Or, similarly, if anyone was affected by one and it didn't last the entire time; I know several people began to see through the latest one while it was still going on.

[Including himself, though he doesn't know if that's something that happens often or it was kind of a special case. He does know, though, that people sometimes get skipped over completely, and why that happens seems like a mystery worth looking into.

And, for a completely different subject--]


I also wanted to ask about how someone would go about getting more bullets, because I know they aren't stocked at the armoury. I'm not out yet, but I'd prefer to solve this issue before I am.

[Thinking ahead, and whatever. He'd had to use a lot more than expected during new arrival day this month.]

I heard something about a deal with Rage, but that doesn't seem to be an option right now, so I was hoping someone else might have an idea or be willing to trade for something.

[It's worth a shot, no pun intended.]

Hey everyone. One of the new kids in town here—I'm Elena Fisher. It's nice to meet you. Well, smartphone-meet you.

[The video shows a blonde woman in a borrowed Henley shirt who apparently scaled some structure before deciding to introduce herself. It's not as high up as her husband's first network post, but apparently "arrive, go higher" is just something members of their household do.]

I get that there's a lot going on here—Nate's been catching me up, and I've been trying to get myself up to date. So I'll try not to ask any dumb questions.

[She read the guide, she saw Chris's post. So far her basic response is: yikes.]

Hopefully this doesn't immediately contradict myself, but has anyone been able to figure out if there's some kind of pattern as to who comes through the Door, and when they come from? It's a pretty small sample set, but so far half the people I've talked to know someone else here from their home—which strikes me as pretty unlikely, considering how few people are here and how many different places the Door could be drawing from. What's more, those people aren't even from the same point in time, so whatever power brought them here didn't scoop everyone up at once. Pretty inefficient.

I don't know. Even if there is an identifiable pattern, I can't say what it would mean, what the goal would be. But suddenly I've got a lot of time on my hands, so...it's something I wouldn't mind figuring out.

Hey, everyone. So uh, I've got a few things to go over, but for everyone who's new, hi. I'm Chris, and I've been here way too long.

[He says it with a grin, clearly finding some humor; he's not as upset about being here as a lot of people are, for a few different reasons.]

I guess that's the main reason why I'm making this post, because um... You've all seen the Null stuff, and Fear's post, and I know that like... A lot of you are missing parts of the story, which you kind of need to make good decisions.

So I figured like, Mello's guide is great about what the hell we're doing here and what to expect, and he and Sharon put together a list of past events, but that's not the big picture stuff. It's all super important, but we also kind of need to be on the same page about everything.

So... Yeah. )

But yeah, all of that out of the way, I also wanted to let people know that Hannah went home. Which um... Sucks, for a lot of reasons. But yeah, people should know.

On less shitty news, I finished a game; you can now all play chess against each other. No computer AI opponents since Deep Blue's kind of beyond me, but you can at least challenge each other and then brag about what a nerd you are. And you know if I'm saying that, it's pretty damn nerdy.

Hey, bro, still up for alpha testing a text-adventure game for me?

Who: Luke Skywalker and Curufin Fëanorion
What: Luke is interested in the City Firefighters and wants to join. Continued from here.
Where: The workshop shared by Curufin and Celebrimbor, near the woods.
When: Backdated to 7/12.
Warnings: None so far.

[ Curufin is in the carpentry shed, hammering away at a project related to Fire Brigade equipment. He thinks he hears a step outside on the walkway, so he puts down his hammer. He's near a window, which is open, so he calls through it. ]

That you, Luke?

Hey, guys. Things are super crazy right now and I've been so uber-stressed that getting into character for my slots has been out of the question.

So Beyond, Tatara, and Yukari will be on autopilot until the beginning of September.

I'm more than happy to do tagbacks if/when I am able to get into character, just expect them to be really slow for the next couple weeks. I plan to get my responses back up to par at that time.

If you have problems with backtagging or prefer to handwave, feel free to pm me here or hit me up on [plurk.com profile] Tseil. I'm always happy to chat and sort things out!

Thank you for your patience with me!

[Magnus starts the video with a friendly wave, grin wide, in the living room of his shared Spire Four apartment. He's apparently in a very good mood.]

Hey! Magnus here. If you haven't met me yet, what's up? You're in for a treat. I'm a delight. Anyway, I've got someone way better than me to introduce to you all! She's kind of shy, but she's a very good girl.

[He turns away from the screen to call whoever she is over.]

Peanut! Hey, Peanut!

[He waits for a couple seconds, then turns back sheepishly.]

She's still learning her name. Hang on. Peanut!

[Suddenly what looks like a black and grey dog covered in way more scales than fur and incredibly large red eyes jumps Magnus and he yelps and laughs, cut off when "Peanut" grabs the phone in her mouth and somehow turns it off.

After a short cut to black, Magnus reappears again, covered in awful scratches. He doesn't seem to mind, though.
]

Hey, I got her to calm down! She's super playful. Don't worry, I got her under control now. Look!

[He turns to point the camera at the varren, who is now sitting on the couch looking much calmer than before. The couch, though, happens to have a slash through one of its cushions, and Peanut happens to only be calm because she is currently in the process of chewing through a half-eaten throw pillow.]

Her name's Peanut and she's kind of a handful, but I think it's just 'cause she's young. She's super sweet, though. Man, my roommates are going to love her! Say hi, Peanut!

[Peanut doesn't say hi. Magnus reenters the frame then to take one of her paws and wave it at the camera. She snaps at him and bites his wrist painfully, and he yelps and kicks the phone trying to pull away. Everyone is treated to a final view of the ceiling, the backdrop a series of snarls and shrieks that descend into laughter.]

[Meditation is essential to communing with the Force, no matter how chaotic and crippled it feels in the cave. He is sitting in a ruin of a building, perched on what used to be a wall, legs crossed.]

We are all protected here. More than you think. [Against futures they do not want to face.] My visions haven't changed. It might be impossible to rectify anything.

[How cruel to stand on the precipice, see the monsters within and have no weapon; no defense.

"Beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster... for when you gaze long into the abyss. The abyss gazes also into you."]


I think it's time I bite the bullet and accept -

[Oh boy. He chuckles shakily.]

It was a nice dream.
