January EMP Meme


meme goes up on the last Saturday of every month


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.


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.


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.


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.


If there's trouble, tell me HERE, please!

You earned yourself a debt. There are a lot of ways to do it. Maybe you played a game of chance without paying, and then lost. Maybe you watched part of a show through the curtains of the Big Top without a ticket. Or maybe you’re one of the rare few to seek out the Ringmaster by choice, to see what this strange new world has to offer. Either way, you end up with a job with which to pay the carnival back, and a contract.

For a year and a day, you’ll travel with the carnival, given work to match your skills. You’ll see the multiverse and help to bring wonder to its various inhabitants. You’ll meet new people, discover new passions, and change in ways both physical and emotional. And after that... the Ringmaster vows to return you to the precise place and moment you left. If, of course, that is what you still want.

Sounds like a good deal, right? Well, either way, it doesn’t really matter what you think of it at the moment. The Ringmaster has decided to give this opportunity, and you had better make the best of it.

As you’ll soon learn, sometimes what goes on backstage is more complicated than it seems, and a carnival that can travel through worlds can also earn itself some powerful enemies.

- ✪ -
Lost Carnival is a panfandom game centered around the activities of a mysterious carnival that’s capable of travelling between dimensions, bringing a motley crew of indentured employees with it. Major themes include the mental and physical transformations that come with being exposed to the carnival’s faerie magic, as well as the dangers that come from meddling with other worlds.

The game is likely to run for a couple years, and is intended to have a flexible and free form meta plot that encourages contributions from players, and will balance carnival slice of life with more involved and dramatic plot arcs.

In contrast to the standard requests for specific characters, what Lost Carnival needs is characters to play specific roles. That is, the carnival has a selection of roles that need filling, and currently we are down a few of them! The first of which are important semi-NPC roles that serve as leadership to the rest of the carnival workers:

► TREASURER: The Treasurer is responsible for organizing and keeping track of the fiscal supplies and wealth of the carnival. This can be anything from standard currency, gold, and jewels, to more abstract things like siphoned mana or cursed artifacts. It's also one of the most important positions in the carnival, and demands a great deal of trust from the Ringmaster. She values her belongings a great deal, and the punishment for skimming off the top could be severe indeed.

► WARDROBE MANAGER: The Wardrobe Manager works alongside the Stage Manager to make things happen on stage. They are responsible for arranging costumes for the entire carnival, whether that be uniforms for the workers or outlandish costumes for the showmen. They ideally have underlings to help them get everyone ready, but at the end of the day they are in charge of making sure you look fabulous.

► MAKEUP: Prepared performers for the stage by applying the necessary makeup and hair styling.

► TAILOR: Creates clothing from raw materials, and repairs costumes that may become damaged during performances.

► LIGHTING/SFX TECH: Provides lighting and special effects during performances.

► REPAIRMAN: Fixes broken equipment, machinery, and other odd jobs around the carnival.

► NURSE: Aid the doctor in the care of wounded carnival members. Must know at least first aid along with providing extra hands.

Of course, all other roles are welcome as well! These are just the ones we would like more players in, in particular.

Also, as an important note, the carnival changes location every OOC month or so which means that right now characters who enter the game right now will be entering under particular circumstances. In particular, they'll have to come in transfigured into a mermaid.

The carnival is just getting into their performance week within Atlantis and so everything is far fishier than usual. These changes will mostly leave at the end of the event.
