March EMP Meme

ENABLEMEPLZ

meme goes up on the last Saturday of every month

FOR GAME ADS:

Put an ad up with the characters / crew / pairings / fetish you want for your game under the correct game header. This meme is primarily going to be focused on DWRP games but IJ and LJ games are allowed.

ABSOLUTELY NO obnoxious coding (no font size > size 4 or 3 "big" tags, no banners, no blinking text, no obnoxious tables, no sparklies, no pictures). Use all the colors you like, but please remember 3 "big" tags is the limit and that's only for headers or title text rather than for all the text in an ad.

FOR GAME QUESTIONS:

RPers interested in a game can create a header for the game and ask questions about that game that aren't easy to find on faqs, such as the actual pace vs. what's listed/what kind of plots are run/if the game leans more towards plotty or slice of life/if a game leans more towards network or logs, etc. Both anon questions and anon answers are welcome in this section just like in the rest of the meme.

This thread is not for speaking about wank or drama in a game. There are anoncomms that exist for that. This thread is specifically for general questions about a game that rpers want to get perspective on from players already in the game. Answers can be slightly negative (such as saying app response is slow or that the plots are repetitive or similar things) but this should at least be worded politely. Unnecessary vitriol, any mention of personal drama or wank, or mod teams/individual mods/players being singled out, will be frozen and/or deleted.

FOR CHARACTER ADS:

Put up an ad about the characters you are offering. For PSL/1-on-1 ads, there is a separate subthread but for character ads for games, post directly to the meme post. Others will comment to you with the games/casts they want you to join.

There is a "Find a Castmate" section, where you can talk about a cast you play in at a game, and try to lure people to join it. Not all games post to the meme or have a "wanted" section, so players that want to tempt people to their cast on their own can use this section for it. Please format this the same as the PSL/1-on-1 section, where you post the canons in your subject. For the actual text of the ad you must use the "Find a Castmate" form provided at the bottom of this post so that these ads don't get huge. When listing who's currently in a cast, please do this in sentence form (with commas) rather than in list form.

ABSOLUTELY NO obnoxious coding, with the same rules as the Game Ads Section above.

If you're recommending a game to someone, try to match your suggestion to their needs. It's okay if part of your game rec is copy-pasted (such as what the game's about), but at least some part of the rec must be personalized to their ad. Try not to recommend the same game to every single ad, either. Ad spam that isn't individualized in some way will also be screened.

IN GENERAL:

Don't be a dick. This isn't one of the anoncomms, so any snide comments or unnecessary commentary on the RP plans of others will be screened.

VOLTRON @ Empatheias

[personal profile] heartofalioness 2017-03-26 04:18 am (UTC)(link)
[game]: [community profile] empatheias
[fandom]: Voltron: Legendary Defender
[game's current cast]: Shiro, Keith, Pidge, Lance, Hunk, Allura, and Thace
[who I play]: Allura
[wanted]: Coran has been at the top of the current cast's wish list for a good long while now! (We miss our ginger space elf uncle dearly.) Other requests include our Shiro-mun wanting an Ulaz, any allies with enough characterization like Shay, as well as characters from the original Voltron, GoLion, or any other version for IC confusion hijinks. Since all of these would be considered separate canons, they can be apped without being considered multiples of the Legendary Defender cast.
[game info]: Empatheias is a jamjar that takes place on a floating island, with characters brought here to help restore the dying world and help the local gods through the power of emotions. Strong enough emotions can even have physical effects on the environment. Light up the room with a smile, give your character a personal rain cloud of sadness, accidentally light the curtains on fire in a fit of rage, even flood the air with shoujo sparkles and rose petals. The game plot is focused on exploration and world building, with the mods saying that the expansion of the setting is currently priority, but there are plenty of options and opportunities for less adventurous characters to stay in the city and engage in more slice-of-life plots as well. Whether it's trekking through a desert to explore an oasis ruin, stopping crooks from stealing the latest glitchy steampunk gadget, or just enjoying the cities and making new friends, there's really something for every player and every character.

In terms of what the Voltron cast has been up to, it's certainly been busy! There's been some drama surrounding canon updates, with Shiro, Keith, and Lance now along various points of Season Two. Speaking of timeline shakeups, the good news is Allura arrived earlier this month! The bad news, she's from the very end of Season Two and is sitting on a LOT of spoilers. She's talking to Shiro now about if/how to tell the others since he's still kinda peeved about the last time she withheld important info. On the lighter side of things, other adventures this month have included Thace taking up farming, Lance dragging Keith and Allura to model for a (nude) charity calendar, and exploring a tomb in a desert which includes a fight against flying giant robot lions! (They can't form Voltron though.) The paladin house has also been adopted by Kevin Regnard from Pandora Hearts; he's a mischievous, sparkly and purple Victorian ex-knight and has become something a second uncle to the cast, especially Keith. If you come in this month, you'll JUST miss him throwing Pidge a reverse surprise birthday party/cotillion (darn you Pidge and being born a few days too early).

Empatheias is a medium-paced game and backtag friendly, with a creative and approachable mod staff. The monthly activity checks have light requirements: 10 comments from your character a month, or 7 comments plus an entry, and new characters only need one proof. Unfortunately AU'd characters aren't allowed and you can't bring in memories from previous games. Applications will be open April 1 to April 4, and reserves are currently open now through the end of the app period. More information is available here if the setting and pace sound like your cup of tea, and feel free to put up a top-level at this month's Test Drive Meme. Even if you can't app this month, we'd still love to play with you and share this awesome, currently Zarkon-free new world!
