Some time in the morning (Pacific time), Wilford will come into the bar and accidentally bring one with him. This is the queen doll, and from her will spawn even more dolls. She'll be hiding somewhere until the end of the day.
Basic horror rules apply. They are animate, they are creepy, and they probably want to harm you. The dolls can be as dangerous as you want or need them to be. They may want to just tug on your clothes and creep you out. They may want to pick up a fork and stab you with it. They'll move whether or not you're looking at them, but aside from that, they have no supernatural powers. Being injured by one will only hurt as it should. Only the queen doll can summon more, which she will be doing constantly. They're also made of porcelain, so they're pretty easy to smash and kill. Once you break the vessel, the doll is dead.
The queen doll will be killed by the end of the night (there's no set time; just at a point where it seems like things are winding down, or it's getting late), and with her all of the others will fall lifeless to the floor, to be disposed of in whatever way possible. An announcement will be made in the back room when the queen doll is dead, so all players can react accordingly.
The doll invasion itself is to be kept in a single, contained post. If you do not want to deal with the dolls, they will be super easy to avoid as they will only be in one place.
*There are creepy porcelain dolls in the link.
Or maybe they have a fever.
Either way, tell us about what they sound like!
Varric's back, I'd forgotten how much fun he is and I love the Dragon Age characters take on the translation plot.
Baze and Chirrut find all the fish, Loki and more questions.
Enzo's take on the translation fail is amazing.
Now this is only part of what's going on in Milliways, tell me what you're reading and loving.
Now, I know this is Milliways, and it probably changes décor every second Friday, but I was hoping that there was something I could build from. If anything's out there, or if you have an idea about its appearance, I'd really appreciated if you'd clue me in.
Your character has found themselves at a party, whether intentional or not. How do they feel about this? Do they have a good time or do they have to fake it for propriety's sake? Do they stay to close the party or clear out as soon as they can?
How would YOU like an update?
Apps haven't been processed yet, I've got a project for school that's been taking priority.
Soon. I hope to have them good and done by mid-week.
As you may, or maynot, have noticed folks have been using Subject Headings for plots.
Thank you so much for doing this!
We figure this is the best way for people to Yes And, rather than expecting people to Opt Out.
(I think going forward we might also consider having plot creators make a unified Plot Name for said plot, so subject headings are a bit more formalized. But that's because I'm a bucket of fuss.)
Tag Stuff is still ongoing, just slowly.
Ever so slowly.
There'll be a thread below if there are any questions or concerns that haven't been addressed.
As always the mod email account is also available...though, because of aforementioned Real Life responses are a touch slower.
This week we have a fresh assortment of:
First to claim, is first to 'tend.
If your pup were to create a game show, what might it be like?
ETA: Also, something to give you a chuckle for the day...Unused Captain America PSAs from Spider-Man Homecoming.
Tomorrow--Friday the 13th, because more bad luck is just what this year needs--the Translation Failure Plot will kick off. The effects will be a patchy disruption to Milliways' translation field: in some parts of the bar translation could be off completely, or result in garbled run-through-google-translate-too-many-
A mod has requested that people please put "translation fail" or something along those lines in the subject line of posts, so that people can choose to participate or not in the event.
Hit me up with any questions!
What five things should someone place at the points of a pentagram to summon your character?
Bonus round: is there something they should chant while doing so? (Or something they should just shout into a crowd to make your character come running?)
Hera and Kanan are wonderful and awkward.
Yamato and his friends get a little hope while the baby Digimons are so cute.
Claire and Matt continue to be wonderful.
This ended up being OOM heavy so please share threads and EPs you're loving.
(Adults will be welcome to participate as well, although likely by way of running the game, playing the monsters, etc.)
But I'm home, and work has piled up while I was gone. I'm going to be terribly slow while I get caught up and take care of a project my network wants. I'll mostly be around in the evenings, and I'll try to wrap up any current threads I have going on then.
