BY REQUEST and because it's a good idea—

Comment here with who you've played in Aather and how someone might reach you now or in the future! Whatever methods of contact it's up to you ♥ Our characters get to stay in touch by being INTERGALACTIC WORLD-HOPPERS so we might as well know each others' Plurks.

—business in the front, tears in the back. You can find a final summary of events here! I tried to keep all of the "pages" in the final battle open (with no reply blocking them at the bottom) so if you missed the actual event and want your characters to have been there, go ahead and slide in retroactive comments!

The current aftermath post is here. Tomorrow, I'll put up another post for the beginning of "farewells" that will help establish where you can go, what you can do, etc. This week is dedicated to wrapping up everything! The important things to note:

❧ Aather now exists with a giant magic tree into the stars with a big glittering glass platform from which they can access any number of 'paths' to any other world. Enjoy your perpetual forever world-hopping bullshit.

❧ Aather itself is also restored, so you can wander around to whatever realm you want to, visit old friends, set up shop, whatever you wanna do. Characters WILL receive all their memories back if they haven't gotten them already—that will be included in tomorrow's post (and yes you can choose whether or not to get them back).

All characters—booked, darknessed, dropped, dead, at home, doesn't matter—are now free to go wherever they want. Is it gonna be weird for your dead ass to go home? I don't care you can be a DJ you can do what you want.

❧ Characters will also retain some measure of their 'key powers.' What, exactly? Whatever! The power was in you all along!

Personae are also of course freed from the Story and can be whatever they want. Did they just continue on as they were because they were fine with that? Did they revert back to themselves from before? It's really up to you.

❧ Any other worldbuilding questions I didn't answer—please feel free to comment to this post and I'll come up with an answer if I don't already have one!

Since Friday's summary

The heroes faced down the void of their worst fears. They poured their power into the spell made of their bonds and crystallized their intentions.

But the world pushed back and tried to shove them into another Story, a false ideal of what they were working towards. They slowly came to realize the false world and fought back again—choosing.

They found themselves caught in Anansi's web once more, asking themselves—

❝ What makes a story, and what makes a life?
What, then, is the power of either? ❞

They took a moment to consider, then dropped down into the final fight against the Darkness. They faced against the pages and stories and memories of the past and demonstrated just how far they'd come. They joined hands and—

They chose the freedom to live their lives. The rest of their story? It's only just beginning.

THE SHORT AND SWEET
The heroes had entered into "The World As The Story Sees It," a patchwork realm overlooking The End of The World, a void of Darkness held back by an invisible wall and a net of the Story's magic. The heroes realized that they could no longer just defend—and began putting their minds towards strategies to defeat the Darkness once and for all.

The heroes visited several dead worlds connected to Aather through Rips in the world borders—the Floating City, the Academy, the Hive, the Naming Lands—and helped awaken the long-sleeping hearts of the worlds and connect them to Aather, along with their bonds and the bonds to many other worlds. This spell gave them the power to tackle the Darkness and their own fears.

But there was much more darkness, still. And the heroes discovered the Darkness could not be fully defeated as it was tied too heavily to the Story. They took a risk—to separate the Story from the Storysona, and the Darkness from them both. They poured their feelings out in response to the Storysona's plea, and two knights returned from their long quest for The Sword That Cuts Stories after months of searching, severing the Story from the Darkness, leaving just the fading Story, and the person left behind . . .

Hello, Aather ♥ There are no drops or placements this week (mysteriously, I wonder why that could be . . .?) But we have a schedule for the rest of the week!

I tried to hit as many time zones as possible and keep slots relatively compressed with some downtime in between. If you need to come late or duck out early for anything, I promise we will bend over backwards to try to accommodate so just fire an email to the modbox at any time if there's anything you need.

There also will be a summary post tomorrow (Thursday) to make sure everybody's on the same page going into the end. 

I ALSO HAVE THREE REQUESTS:
  • Please replurk the modplurk and/or reach out to any alumni you think would want to come back or even drop a comment in at some point during the end! Alumni can literally just show up at any time now but there will also be spots to just drop in a thought or a comment.
  • If there are any alumni that you'd like to have Do Something Cool or have, say, the fruits of their labor from wherever they are in Aather reflected at some point, email the modbox by Friday and I will try to weave it in!
  • . . . if there's anything else that you'd like to see resurface or that it's important to you to see resolved in endgame (. . . even if you may have mentioned it before, Please Save Zazzle 2015) feel free to drop a line to the modbox as well and I will do my best!

SCHEDULE

Thursday July 23 - 5PST to 8PST - A wrap-up to the rips events to talk about & deal with what was encountered and what was seen and to try and thread it all together. Lots of memory-related and CR business!

Friday July 24 - 4PST to 8PST - A follow-up to Thursday's preparations! Major Darkness combat (but of course, Aather combat isn't just about fighting anymore, so everyone can participate) that should be personalized to each character ... 

And the finale events, about which details are not being divulged . . .

Saturday July 25 - 1PST to 4PST
Saturday July 25 - 6PST to 9PST
Sunday July 26 - 12PST to 5PST

We will also do our best to make sure there are 'handwave I was there' sections to account for not being able to make any events.

We're looking forward to everything and hope you are too ♥ ♥ ♥ 

THERE WILL ALSO BE A DENOUEMENT FOR THE WEEK AFTERWARDS I'M NOT KICKING YOU OUT THE DOOR ON SUNDAY jsyk


Clear is your last and cutest Legacy Hero!

HELLO AATHER! Here are event times & sign-ups for things happening over the next couple of days ♥

Saturday July 18 @ 6PST/9EST - No sign-ups
❧ A mingle with DISCUSSION and STRATEGIC PLANNING as well as MAKING BONDS and KNIGHT & PERSONA PATRONNING and MEMORY-WINNING OPPORTUNITIES and possibly DRAGONS and CUTE THINGS. BRING YOUR KNIGHTS & PERSONAE ESPECIALLY
❧ If you can't make this one tonight, you can keep rolling in over the next day or two for several parts of it, it's flexible and laid back.

Exploration Events
All of these will be essentially the same format just different flavors—so you're not going to be missing tremendously much or having your character not be able to help out if you can only make one! You're welcome to play in multiple (either with different or with the same characters) but if turnout is especially high we may ask duplicates to draw back a little if we're over capacity.

These will be a MIX of COMBAT and NON-COMBAT and we'll try to play to character interests & skills to give everybody a chance to do cool things!

The times are:
Sunday July 19 @ 3PST/6EST
Monday July 20 @ 6:30PST/9:30EST
Tuesday July 21 @ 4PST/7EST
Wednesday July 22 @ 7PST/10EST

Each will be about THREE HOURS long. Rolling in a little bit late or ducking out a little bit early should be OK but probably not more than half an hour either way, since the timeframe is fairly short. Sorry we couldn't do a lot that were much earlier in the day, due to RL schedules :(

Sign-ups are below, as well as an area for questions!

There will be a plot-relevant Prince game tomorrow night, starting at 8:30pm EST on Friday, July 17th and running until midnight. It will have elements of discussion and design and will include mental effects (which can be resisted) on participating characters. The game will address the topic of personal identity and the Story.

Until then, you can check in with the Prince here on the latest unlock if anyone's interested in his current state of mind.

Your resident Storysona was asked by some heroes to lift the powercap, and with assistance it was done!

What does that mean for your characters? They are, more or less, back to what you would consider "normal" levels of power if they have gained those skills and abilities back. There is still a natural/personal limit for characters; if their magic or abilities would tire them out by a certain point they will still get tired, but it's much improved from hitting the powercap wall and passing out from it. Unfortunately, all-powerful godbeings still won't be able to draw on their full power -- while they would have been able to access their power on their own world, Aather has a finite amount of energy to draw from and the characters that have been brought here are not as naturally attuned to it. They won't hit a powercap wall, but they'll run out of power to use faster.

What does this mean OOCly? We want you to have fun and to make this as flexible as we can! Just remember that we still have to run a game and run events for lots of people with lots of different abilities and spread it around (which is what the powercap was originally for). Limit yourself with that regard in mind to help us keep things as fun as possible for everybody!

If there are any questions please ask here and we will do our best to clarify! HAVE FUN, AATHER.

❧ After the recent 'unlock', Maleficent helped channel everybody's power into fighting back against the Darkness, but really gave it her all and has fallen into a deep sleep. The heroes met to discuss what to do from now forward . . . and Beauty & her Prince had something of a falling-out.

Beauty has staged a game to help gather the necessary power to help Maleficent, which is still continuing . . .

❧ This Wednesday July 15th there will be a short scene after the game. Following that, on Friday July 17th (date/time tentative—confirmed tomorrow), there will be another game relevant to this plot arc. On Saturday afternoon everyone will be asked to put their heads (and maybe some other things . . .?) together (that ended up coming out weird, it probably won't be weird). Between Sunday & Wednesday there will be multiple explorations at different times—you won't be expected to make all of them, but if you can set aside at least one afternoon/evening of those, you can make something!

❧ Aather's climactic endgame events will be occurring over the weekend of July 24-26, with some follow-up winding down the few days after that! S-s-save the dates.

❧ As a reminder, going into endgame, you can now choose to win back EITHER skills or memories from any game as a result of the magic in the last realm. (Also applies for favored knight events which you can use to win back things faster hey hey hey). However, it's very important that if you want one or the other that you mark and prioritize your registry for gamerunners.

HEADS UP, FOLKS

The ~*~kissing game~*~ will start officially Monday the 13th, at 4pm EST/1pm PST and run until Wednesday the 15th, at 12 am EST/9 pm PST or thereabouts. A cutscene will follow at the end of the game. It should be familiar and straightforward for the most part, but if there are any questions/concerns, go ahead and comment or email me at 2000iqkilljoydetective at gmail.

❧ I AM PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE SAD BIRD WEEK there is a Kiriko take-home game starting Wednesday July 8th @ 12PM EST and a Marjory & June game on Saturday July 11 @ 5PM EST.

❧ As an interlude to birds, there will be a significant unlock event on Friday night (~8EST).

❧ There will be a kissing (+other things) game from Monday July 13th to Wednesday July 15th. More details TBD. Invite your friends.

❧ As a reminder from last week, going into endgame, you can now choose to win back EITHER skills or memories from any game as a result of the magic in the last realm. (Also applies for favored knight events which you can use to win back things faster hey hey hey). However, it's very important that if you want one or the other that you mark and prioritize your registry for gamerunners.

Our suggestion is to simply choose 10-15 things (either skills or memories, or just one or the other) and make them into a priority registry that you put on top of your regular registry, to make it easier for runners and to make sure you get back the things that you need. We've included an example code of a priority registry you can use but of course feel free to mark however you like—just please make it as easy for gamerunners as possible ♥

Marjory (and June) will be running their final game on Saturday July 11 at 2 pm PST/5 pm EST. It isn't anticipated to run much longer than 3 hours (and could be faster, depending on the group). There will be some themes of childhood abuse/murder/etc as usual with them, but nothing directly on the players.

Kiriko's final game will be July 8th beginning at (somewhere around) 12pm EST! (It will probably actually go up at least half an hour earlier, but that's hopefully not a problem because—)

It will be a 24-hour(ish) individual takehome survey(ish) game. That means you can go at your own pace, and threading is not required. In fact, once you've started the survey, it's not allowed until you've finished it.

While this (obviously) isn't a trauma game, it does address some themes from the story Kiriko is taken from, so the questions may be upsetting and also reference animal harm. I mean, it's in the title, it's pretty hard to avoid entirely.

For the Hansel and Gretel game from two days ago, winners are Ruby, Jasper, Emerald, Sapphire, and Iolite! Thanks for the patience, memories will be up tonight whenever I'm back home (unless someone wants to be a qt and help me out).

Just posting this in the ooc comm so people are aware since I know some time has passed! Again, sorry for the lateness and thank you again! Hansel, Gretel, and the Baker are here if you'd like to have any conversations!

Hey folks! The Masked Lady will be running her final game this Friday @ 6 PM CST! (... unless plans suddenly change in which case ignore this, but I wanted to get an announcement up so that people were aware it was happening, since it's a holiday weekend and all.)

If anyone wants to thread with her/do some exploring of her mini-realm before then, there's a thread going on here. I'm pretty busy this week but I will try to reply at least a little.
