Halloween Plot - Doll Invasion

On Halloween, the bar will find itself overrun with creepy porcelain dolls*. They aren't normal dolls, but extra creepy ones from Wilford's world.

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.

I've a day of waiting between water polo games, so entertain me peoples! This one suggested by Fi.

How does your character feel about nicknames and their name? Do they have one? Do they bristle when called the wrong name? What name do they prefer?

So for the tail end of the Translation plot, let's pretend your pup has just been woken but they are barely awake, like maybe they're a third conscious. For some reason, they are not talking as they normally do; perhaps they have a weird accent or a stuck in a dream they'd been having where they were a horse and so can't word.

Or maybe they have a fever.

Either way, tell us about what they sound like!

The translation plot is such fun, I love all the places on the spectrum of misunderstanding from missing a few things to charades. Also I figured out how to use Aurabesh in a post.

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.

I'm working on a plot for Sahaal that would involve him looking in the Bar's library for some intel he needs at the moment. I've been planning to do this part of the plot as a short story, but I've got a bit of a problem. There doesn't seem to be an actual description for the library anywhere that I can find.

Now, I know this is Milliways, and it probably changes d├ęcor 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.

Wednesday DE: Heroes II.

Which persons your character has met in Milliways do they admire most? They might be either heroes from tales or legends, or people whose work they admire for personal reasons. For example, the hero that gets the most awe from Teja is Weyland (despite being fully aware of the man's highly problematic personality) because he's the god of smiths from Teja's people's pantheon; for Father Harman, it's Rae, because she deals with vampires all by herself in a desperately dark crapsack world, with none of the resources he has.

What does your character think of birthdays? Do they celebrate? Do they treat others' differently from their own?

Good morning and welcome to another week.

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?

Hallo Milliways!

How would YOU like an update?
Excellent!

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. 

Plots!
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.

BUT NOW!

HAPPY HOURS!
This week we have a fresh assortment of:


TODAY
Tomorrow
Wednesday
Thursday
Friday
Saturday 
Sunday

First to claim, is first to 'tend.
Have at!

 Hello and welcome to another Friday!

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.

Hello friends! I'm so sorry I've dropped off the face of the earth a bit-- I've been moving and settling into new circumstances and all that sort of chaos. I'm going to try to be around a bit more, but also if anyone ever has need of me or one of mine, please don't hesitate to reach out!

Plotty reminder: translation fail!

Hullo hullo!

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-times nonsense, or could be entirely unaffected.

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!

<3

IN HONOR OF...uh...me hardly being around lately because I've hit a really busy spell in my life...

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?)

I hope everyone's having a good week. I know I'm looking forward to the translation plot starting on Friday.

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.

Does anyone have any ideas for what LARPing in Milliways would be like/how it would work? Enzo is interested in running a kiddie LARP for any interested Millikinder. Strictly fun stuff, nothing you would not want to inflict on a small child, but there have to be some magical features or what's the point?

(Adults will be welcome to participate as well, although likely by way of running the game, playing the monsters, etc.)

I am back!

Which probably seems weird, because it didn't seem like I was gone at all. In fact, I've been on vacation all month, staying at my brother's and taking care of his zoo while he was in Hawaii. Probably a weird kind of vacation, but it's the first I've taken in over two years, and it was fun.

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.

 After seeing Wedge Antilles fanboy both Baze and Cassian in last week's DE: who are your characters' heroes they would react to in that way (even if just internally).

When is "coming of age" for your character? Is it marked culturally, whether by celebration or solemnity or specific ritual? What significance did it hold for them personally?
