This one is for the dinner itself and whatever goes into it.

This one is the main body of the event itself, holding all four nights/three days of life trapped in an icy hell. (If approached from the log comm front page instead of this link, it has links to each individual floor per day so that you don't have to risk heavy loading times trying to get the whole post to load at once. For that reason, please start your threads in response to those floor plans, so people can get directly linked to everything that applies to a specific floor in one go.)

Hit them up as you please!

The main event log contains an OOC intro covering some basic playing information and/or a general explanation of the setup style and stuff like that, a section with a select few Majorly Important Points to remember, and an FAQ for the main questions expected.

To recap real quick, we're attempting to run a highly free-form, player-driven plot at the same time as one with a loose, but firm guideline meant more to serve as a springboard for creativity than a noose. Essentially, consider it free reign to run wild through the house--paint the dog, jump on the bed, and kick the door in if you want to! Just so long as you leave a couple of the walls standing in the end. ;)

Please feel free to use this post for any more plotting you need/want to do, for as long as you need to use it. If you'd like to use AIM or just fly by the seat of your pants instead, that's also awesome. Just keep in mind that you'll probably want to keep checking in here now and then--especially because discussing NPC kills (if any are going to happen) is heavily encouraged to take place in here, so that all players can be on the same page as far as which ones are still alive and at what times. There's nothing more embarrassing than accidentally chatting up a grandma on the 21st when someone beat her to death with a serving platter on the 19th! Unless you're Nico, in which case you're probably excused.

Have fun, my lovelies.

Oh--and if anyone notices any floor/image mixups or incorrect/bad links or something, let me know, please. I've not had too much sleep and been at this for five hours or so now, so my head's a bit spinny. XD

PS: Yes, you can all throw things at their heads for locking everyone inside.

Preferably Lupin's, as Miles' temper is shorter. >_>

OOC, what time does the the whole mess happen? Is it early and no one notices till late, or what?
Like, if your character wasn't planning on staying long anyway.
Miles A. Edgeworth: what did you say?bluffing_ruffle on December 19th, 2010 06:25 pm (UTC)
Helpers arrive ~5PM or so (unless they state it as earlier). Non-helping guests can arrive any time, up until like ten minutes before the dinner, which officially kicks off at 7:30PM.

In that 10 minute space, Miles and Remus will have the huge argument that leads to the power flare trapping everyone inside... so once dinner's started, everyone inside is stuck there.*

How long it takes people to start noticing that they can't leave depends on who gets up to head out of the hotel for what reason and when they do it. If nobody ICly breaks the news early, it's marked to be found out at 9PM when all the food and drink are pretty much gone and people are full/tired/want to go home, but I'm sure SOMEONE will do the honors sooner than that XD

*Since I'm sure someone is going to ask, the reason there are no caterers at the dinner and everything looks self-serve is because they all went back to the truck for a quick break shortly before the argument and field/storm happened. Essentially, there's going to be a crowd of confused caterers standing in the parking lot looking up at a beached iceberg and going "...So who gets to explain this one to the boss?"

What happens if someone with fire-based powers tries to melt the ice? I know it won't work, but I mean, does nothing at all happen, does it immediately refreeze, that sort of thing.
Miles A. Edgeworthbluffing_ruffle on December 19th, 2010 09:58 pm (UTC)
Like with the barrier and the ice/snow outside the hotel, that's up to the player! It can ricochet off and catch something else on fire by accident, immediately refreeze, just get absorbed and do nothing, sort of linger there constantly burning in mid-air but having no effect, get sucked in only to come blasting out of another frozen-over surface elsewhere and catch the person near it entirely by surprise, make the ice WORSE, etc.

Players are encouraged to come up with whatever reaction they'd like their powers (or just general attempts, if someone tries throwing a molotov cocktail at a frozen-over shower) to have upon failure. :)

I'm guessing it's okay if Haruka pops in there? ._. wasn't sure if it was invite-only because Bakura mentioned the party to her. figured I'd ask before dropping a tag in.

Yes, she may. I know you only barely got her in-comm, as compared to how long everyone else had for sign-ups, so feel free :)

Keep in mind that anyone staying for the dinner is technically stuck for the whole shebang, though...

Just as a note, I won't be tagging until tomorrow, since I have to be up early for an appointment and don't want to rush to tag in and then leave people hanging for hours.

Shinji overheard someone talking about it and decided to investigate

alternately, I will go back, find his first post, and have miles ask him out of curiosity

I would like to terrify the hell out of someone

If someone's character is being a greedy sumbitch hoarding an entire room to themselves when there's extra space in the beds in it and other people are going without

And you would like them to have the pants scared off of them (not literally, please keep their pants on, thank you)

Let me know~
Bruno. Dark Glass.: Z:\01010111010010000100000101010100donttasemebro on December 20th, 2010 09:31 pm (UTC)
Okay so, on the first night I totally want Bruno to try and punch and kick his way through the ice and snow and magical-barrier, because... even if he's pretty sure it won't work, he will still try. Granted he'll do it alone in an out-of-the-way place where no one is likely to get hurt if this backfires, like the back door of the kitchen or something.

I want him to make it through the ice layer, if that's okay, but when he gets to the barrier... well, it is made of magic and he is made of robot. It's not going to be pretty.

Does anyone want to find an incoherent and half-functional blue haired guy on the floor of the kitchen and look after him for an hour or two until he stops malfunctioning hilariously? With the caveat that I'd like it to be someone who can mostly keep it to themselves (or to one or two other people at most) for a while if his eyes glow red or he starts babbling in machine code for a while or something.

Their motivations for keeping it to themselves can be anything at all, down to "hmmm I think I shall kidnap this robot later and reprogram him into my minion :3<" Bruno himself will just wake up in a couple hours and not remember much of the ordeal, except that your character was the one who helped him, and be super grateful. Possibility for future shenanigans: high.

Any takers?
