  • Brenna: Hey, Arcadians! I started a community on for us. Think of it as a chatroom with a jukebox we can all take turns using. Whip up an account and let me know your account name (it's a private room).

  • Brenna: I'm still here! Waiting... *hopeful*
    June 30, 2015, 02:26:07 PM
  • Edgewise: ;_; Thank you, very much.
    May 25, 2015, 08:27:28 PM
  • Alyss: I hope not!
    May 21, 2015, 03:32:13 PM
  • Edgewise: ...Please tell me this rpg hasn't been abandoned for the second time in six years. Please.
    May 18, 2015, 08:21:36 PM
  • Edgewise: Omg stay warm, everybody!  ;__;
    November 19, 2014, 01:00:04 PM
  • Ingrid: Maybe when they were kids XD
    October 19, 2014, 12:15:33 PM
  • Alyss: Phoebe wouldn't want Vaness to feel bad either, though, or dress up as something she really, really would rather not wear. Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty have pretty dresses, so she'd be perfectly happy going as one of them. ^_^ (And the puppy dog eyes may end up on Roi to go as Flynn. XD)
    October 17, 2014, 01:04:57 PM
  • Alyss: She does - complete with a little bottom lip wibble. ^^;
    October 17, 2014, 12:59:37 PM
  • Ingrid: I bet Phoebe has the best puppy eyes
    October 17, 2014, 10:40:58 AM
  • Ingrid: Oh no ;_; Now Vaness feels bad
    October 17, 2014, 10:40:49 AM
  • Alyss: Phoebe would probably go as Rapunzel or Sleeping Beauty since they are both "hidden" princesses like her. (But only because Vaness probably won't go as Elsa to her Anna. XD)
    October 17, 2014, 10:35:10 AM
  • Brenna: Phia will dress as a butterfly, because its the last thing anyone will see coming out of the world's biggest tomboy.
    October 14, 2014, 10:54:38 PM
  • Brenna: Doc Lamya would go as the Ghost of Breakfasts Yet To Come, with a bacon and eggs print shroud.
    October 14, 2014, 10:53:31 PM
  • Ru: That is so awesome.  :D
    October 14, 2014, 06:06:48 PM
  • Pixie: Kivan would go as Liberace XD
    October 14, 2014, 05:50:22 AM
  • Ru: Kit I think might be a total geek and dress up as some historical figure her dad taught her about.  And then be a little confused that no one knows who she is.
    October 13, 2014, 06:52:34 PM
  • Ru: Hmm, I think Seren might go as a zombie, just to confuse the hell out of people.  She'd play it totally straight, and people would STILL find her attractive.
    October 13, 2014, 06:50:57 PM
  • Ingrid: Vaness goes as Flame Princess because of all the Elsa jokes
    October 13, 2014, 01:51:42 PM
  • Pixie: Pwyll would perversely go as his sister XD
    October 13, 2014, 07:05:13 AM
  • Brenna: Autumn Question Times! Cast Masquerade/Trick or Treating! What/Who/When is your character going as?

  • Ru: Excellent, okay!  <3
    October 06, 2014, 06:36:01 PM
  • Brenna: Triso probably did. Seraita wasn't strong enough to swim, so she mostly waded.
    October 01, 2014, 01:59:40 PM
  • Ru: HEY so just a little question - for those of you with Lost Kids, do your kids know how to swim?
    September 25, 2014, 06:10:07 PM

    September 17, 2014, 04:28:14 PM
  • Alyss: Please do! :)
    September 15, 2014, 01:47:31 PM
  • Ingrid: Okay, mind if I improvise?
    September 15, 2014, 01:46:04 PM
  • Alyss: And I've been trying to find a good flower for Phoebe. I've come up with a few (white rose, lily of the valley, magnolia, etc), but haven't settled on one yet.
    September 15, 2014, 01:02:17 PM
  • Alyss: Pretty! :)
    September 15, 2014, 01:00:15 PM

    September 15, 2014, 10:50:03 AM

Hi all!

It's been a while since a chat has been had.  So we will have two chats this week!

Chat 1: Sunday, May 4th @ 3 PM PST.  It will be in the chat called "Pwylls Petticoats" on AIM.  There is no particular topic to this chat, just seeing what is up with everyone, and helping Sage reorganize and figure out the most important things that need to be done before we are live.

Chat 2: TBA.  Waiting to see which weekday is best for some of our weekend-employed players!  It will probably start around 6 PM PST.

Emilie Autumn is the best, and yeah, creepy babydoll songs like that are great for Sin.

Navigational Display / Vega Setting Overview
« on: January 25, 2014, 09:18:12 AM »
Hey dudes,

The Vega Setting page is finally done!  I felt like we needed an overview for the whole system at large, and I'm going to be feeding chunks of this into the Settings tab we have at the top.  That fix will be happening over the next week or two.

Let me know if there is anything that should be corrected, expanded on, or just any ideas you have!

Considering Orpheus eats nasty Space-Spam, I'd like to see a section on cuisine in planetary culture. Maybe just common foods, spices, dishes, things that they eat that other places find revolting. Something tells me Orpheans have some very INTERESTING culinary traditions (Rice grubs, man, f***ing rice grubs).

They are the kind of strange snooty people who love eating brains and bird's nest soup and caviar and fermented shark.  Rice grubs are totally going in there.  I kinda sort of imagine that it's not much better for the people who live underground, who eat nasty stuff because they don't have much of another choice.

In other news, nobody will ever, ever want to put Roimata on cooking duty for the group. 

Edit: Threw that all in!  Also threw in the Italian tradition of everyone at a dinner table getting a glass of wine, including the watered-down wine for kids.

I know that the Orpheus template is mostly filled out, but I realized that it isn't really that imaginative, and I didn't push it as far as I possibly could.  So let me know if anybody else has any ideas to contribute :D

Welcome to Arcadia! / Update on our Applications
« on: January 15, 2014, 09:55:08 AM »
After like 5 reviews with our new system, we've learned a lot about the process and found something that I think works the best and allows people to come to the best decisions.  But a conversation of a different nature came up this weekend: is the application itself the best it could be? Two points came up:

1) A common thread in the recent reviews is that we feel like we want to learn more about the History of the characters.  This isn't the applicants' fault, since we have a bare-bones minimum on History.

2) Will a new player really want to write a Writing Sample when applying for Arcadia?  Do we really need to see a sample to get an idea of how good of a writer they are?

To address both of those issues, we are going to eliminate the Writing Sample from our applications, but to make up for that, we will put in a word count minimum on History.  Tentatively, the minimum will be 500 words, though I'm going to look through the apps we have already and see what the average is.

This won't affect our currently accepted apps.   Only apps going forward will have the change.  But I think it will be a very beneficial change, and make our applications more appealing to new visitors!

Application Drop-Off / MOVED: Civilian (Pirate) // Kedi

Application Reviews / Re: Civilian (Pirate) // Kedi [ACCEPT]
« on: January 14, 2014, 06:43:47 PM »
Here kitty, kitty, kitty >:3

Reviewers universally really loved Kedi!  In general, reviewers responded very well to how he fully embraces being a Mau - how he is written more like a bullish cat who happens to sometimes be a person rather than a person with cat-like qualities.  Not only that, but he is Grumpy Cat and an unrepentant tom and generally a balls-to-the-wall guy.  He is very well suited to the pirate's life. 

The reviewers had two particular questions for expansion:

1) Can we learn a little more about Kedi's formative years?  Reviewers wanted to know more about how he got into his life of crime, like why he wanted to run with the wrong crowd in the first place.  Also, what kind of scams does he run nowadays? 

2) Some reviewers wondered if Kedi had enough plot hooks, as some reviewers weren't sure if he had enough reason or motivation to interact with other characters besides other pirates.  I think addressing the question of his youth and his current running scams can help answer this, plus if you want to share with us here or in the Plots thread what kind of trouble you think he'd get into, we should be fine.   

Overall, Kedi is a Fully Accept, because the points for expansion were not considered critical enough to block.  If you could address those questions, everyone would be all the more enlightened about the mysterious ways of Kedi.  Yay! 

Favorite Part

I love his dedication to the thug ideal, tempered by the fact that he has a brain in his head and knows how to pick his fights.  I love his hilariously feline attitude towards things, and I would love to see how he deals with being on the same ship as Bork on a daily basis.

I cannot say enough how Kedi is a beautifully realized example of what a cat that can poof into a human could be, and hes going to be a fabulous character to toss characters against (even when there isnt catnip around), this tomcat who sometimes deigns to walk as human. 

It seems highly fitting that the ship's cat on a spaceship would be a feline alien.

Questions for Clarification

I'm curious as to what caused Kedi to start down the path of crookedness.  There's mention that he fell in with a gang of bad kitties, but is there anything in particular that caused him to want to start running with a bad crowd?

I do think a little more on Kedi's formative years might be enlightening. 

I would really like to hear about whether he has a record.

What sort of arc does Pixie want to use to evolve him within the game? Right now he is all cat, and I love that to pieces, but it is hard to see if hes going to stay that aloof tomcat or if hes going to actively get himself involved in things.

Non-critical Questions/Thoughts

What is his birth name, anyway?

If another Mau was in trouble (one who didn't know of him), would it bother him enough to act?  Would it depend on circumstances?

Does Kedi have any living family?

I'm curious what Kedi thinks about the plight of the Senshi-- does he emphasize with them, since he himself is an outlaw? Is he grumpy about getting dragged into the fight, or does he care less and just go with it?

Does he have a favorite strain of catnip? Is catnip like pot (lots of types, but you get what your dealer gives you)?

Thank you for the submission Pixie!  We'll be giving you the review a week from now. 

The Gloriana's Lounge / Re: Story Suggestions
« on: January 06, 2014, 01:57:49 PM »
Since everyone is getting in on stories, I'd love it if Phia and Dr. Lamya could get some stories. Like, Phia is avoiding a raid at the Robber and Duchess, and ducks into Vaness' place of work, seeking hooch.

Dr. Lamya and Sin stories (+ any other available angel) should be easy to set up.  Depending on what you want Lamya to be up to at the beginning of the game, she could even start out being on Eurydice with Sin.  At game start, Sin will be on Eurydice giving a speech and display celebrating the 8th anniversary of the Iron Angels, and while all of the Angels don't need to be there, she might have a few to help in ceremony or conduct parties with Gentry and politicians.  Of course, Lamya could also run into some senshi scrubs while out and about in town.

Alternatively, Sin and Lamya can do lots of things, like poison someone Sin hates at a dinner party :D  Anyone care for fruit, or dessert?

« on: January 06, 2014, 01:53:12 PM »
Just added the link back on the Coppelia page.  Thank you Ren for the love you show the Coppelia! I like the idea that Elohim compensate for their maybe scary big looks by having the best PR on their side, and their tendency to work better in teams raises interesting possibilities for someone who wants to play an Elohim.  What if a naturally disruptive and contrary person is allocated an Elohim body?  That would be a pretty terrible fit - which would make an awesome character to play :D

Questions / Re: Review our review system!
« on: January 06, 2014, 09:32:32 AM »
Thanks for the feedback guys! 

So next time we have an app, we'll experiment by doing these things as well:

- For the first four-five days, reviews will be private (you cannot read other people's reviews).  On the fifth day, I will send a second PM/email that will open all of the responses for the other reviewers to read.  People are still free to submit new reviews throughout the whole 7 days.

- We'll try two things - we will have a chat on the fifth/sixth/seventh day to iron out differing opinions, and I will open a free blank G. doc where people who can't make it into the chat could throw in their opinions on decisive points.  The doc and chat are free for people who haven't written a review as well, so they can quickly throw in their POV.  I'll PM/email details about the chat and doc when I open the responses up. 

- I will research how to edit your response after you have submitted a review.  At worst, we may need to make it so people are logged into G. Drive to make a review, which I initially wanted to avoid cause I want be blind to the reviewer's identity too.

- For holiday extensions, let's play it by ear.  I think we are now past any holiday that would call for a 5-day extension, and the next big holiday I think would warrant an extension is Memorial Day weekend.  So if an app pops up around then, I can do a quick ask-around and see what people's availability is.   

Calling back to Alyss's points, I also prefer not to put a reviewer's whole review into the official review, so we will continue with my summaries and quotes. 

Also, I haven't said this explicitly, but so far, I have reserved the right to make the final verdict call in the case of a tie.  Hopefully by opening up a chat and a G. doc in the last few days of the review will help us avoid ties and get enough opinions to go for certain one way or another.   

Questions / Re: Review our review system!
« on: December 20, 2013, 09:54:08 AM »
I like using Google forms, although I kind of wish there was a way to go back and call up your review, in case you want to make edits.  I know Google gives you the option to edit immediately after you've submitted, but it might be helpful to be able to recall it later in case you think of something else to add.  Is there a way to do that?

Okay, I'll have to go into the forms as a guest and see :D  I had thought there was a way to edit a few days after the fact, but maybe there is a trick to it, or it's not clear.  Even if I don't find a way, the review system isn't so strict that you can't jump in, write a new "review" and say that it is an extension of an earlier review, and then keep going with your new thoughts.
