hello singularity! i'm kiwi and this isn't my first time here [i played a certain maroon fellow the last time i was here] but it's been a while and i've got a new character. this time i'm here to play AGENT CAROLINA from the extremely popular webseries RED VS. BLUE!

of course, like north, she's coming in from an AU. so, again, it's freelancers meet the wild west. instead of AI we have native american talismans and horses. and instead of mock-mjolnir armor we have cowboy hats and chaps. quite the tradeoff. her app is over here if you wanna take a gander at it.

if you wanna hit me up to do nonsense with her you can either get me on plurk [plurk.com profile] desynchronization or try and get me on AIM at hiyokugetsumei

Hello, Singularity!

Now that we’ve gotten through both the Hypatia Plot and the Fourth Wall Event (thanks for making it so much fun!), we’d like to move the game towards the overarching metaplot. Timing-wise, though, we need a break! It’s been a good month and a half of big plots, and with American Thanksgiving coming up next week we need to put the metaplot on the backburner for a little while -- that, is, through the end of November. Mod- and metaplot stuff will return in December!

Until then, though, we’d like to move the plot forward through player and character plots. We introduced the Mission Board with the game overhaul, and what we’d like now are volunteers to help us integrate it into the game, both ICly and OOCly.

ICly, the station is a mess after the last few weeks -- the Reavers destroyed a lot of infrastructure that had come back online after the Hypatia plot, and plenty is still offline in the first place. Repairs aren’t the only thing needed, though! Just about everything’s gonna go on the fritz at some point-- or enough so that just about any character has something to do.

But if things aren’t fixed up, the characters might find themselves in a lot of trouble as the metaplot progresses...

OOCly, we’d like to make the mission board the way players get involved in our metaplot. It’s easier on us for you guys to sign up when you want to do things, and to let us know how much involvement you’d like to have. At this stage of the game, if there’s something on the station or in the plot you’d like to affect, you’re more than welcome to. We are working towards a guided metaplot, but in the interim, the sky’s the limit.

That said, we need to get used to it! We’ve done one test-run mission, which directly affected the Fourth Wall Event, and we’d love to do more along those lines. Of course, we’re bound to run into some snags along the way, but we’re willing to change things up to make them work.

What if I don’t have any ideas for my characters? Or what if I can’t find someone to do a mission with?

That’s no problem! The form on the page just asks for your characters’ motivations and skillsets to give us something to build from. We’ll take those and give you a couple options for missions if you don’t have an idea on hand, and once you pick one we’ll give you a mission scenario to work with.

If you’re signing up alone, we’ll signal boost the request through the mod plurk to help you find someone who’s interested in doing a mission or pair you up with another solo signup, if there are any.

We’ve also put up a CR Meme to help you find people to play with! We’re still working on the schedule, but we’d like to run these monthly or bimonthly around the time apps close.

Any comments, questions, or issues, just let us know below!

hello, singularity! i'm terrible at intros so let's just take this one step at a time, shall well? hi, my name is tsu and i'm an alcoholic and this is my first time bringing anyone to this game despite having contemplated it for like .. good lord. a year? something like that. anyway.

i am bringing with me AGENT NORTH DAKOTA from that awesome webseries RED VS. BLUE. but! here's the kicker. he's not canon. he's au. GASP. i know, right?

what kind of au, you ask? well, let me tell you. basically, it's project freelancer in the wild, wild west. so yep, you guessed it - COWBOYS IN SPACE.

also theta-horse, but .. we'll talk about him later.

app/general info is here.
hmd is here!

and even though all my contact info is on my hmd, if anyone needs me for anything or just wants to chat, i'm techburst on aim and [plurk.com profile] sensesgaveway on plurk. i'm really looking forward to playing with you all!

Hi guys! I've been absent for ages and, truth be told, I'm rubbish at playing the same character in multiple games and Peeta has more CR at the other game right now. Hopefully I'll be back here with a different character, but, in the mean time, I miss you all and have fun!

The game really is looking amazing and I'm sorry to leave now, but alas. :c

hi, i'm katana, and i am bringing some harkonnen (s)waggishness to sing with piter de vries! (⊙‿⊙✿) i'm completely new here, but i know a few players (i am oli/madi's internet little sis hehe) and the minute larissa told me that sing was based on dune i just cOULDN'T CONTROL MYSELF...

so uh my hand slipped and WHOOPS i ended up apping this little guy! i'm taking piter from right after he's been promised the duchy on arrakis, and dune-familiar people might recognize him as the baron's mentat/that guy with the creepy crush on jessica/that guy who died because leto burped on him. those labels are all completely accurate. "that guy with the eyebrows," however, is not. all i want to do is forget about the piter from the dune film omg uGLY SOBBING.....

but okay let's get some realtalk in here: piter is profoundly awful, hissy little sasshole. he is made of poison and spice and everything nice. he is the grand epitome of d, rivaled only by the baron himself, and i almost feel the need to issue a formal apology about whatever shenanigans he will totally get up to orz. he's a weirdo, but i hope that people will grow to love the terrible creep as much as i do. :') anyway, you can reach me on plurk ( [plurk.com profile] lapace ) if you ever want to plot or anything, and i look forward to playing with you all! ♥

( eta 11/13: wELP i just got my wisdom teeth out yesterday and i am nOT DOING SO WELL so i will be kind of slow for a bit oops that's so sad i have to quasi-hiatus like a few days after i intro way to go self omg i will be back on track soon though!!! )

Quick hiatus. I'll be away for the weekend without internet. I'll be back on Sunday though.

With regards to the 4th wall, I'll be happy to backtag everything as long as people are interested since I realize I'm not going to be around during the climax of the event. Any sort of plottings will have to happen then. Sorry.

This affects Roxas game-wise, and Grif, Leoben, and North 4th Wall wise.

Hello, Singularity! Welcome to the second phase of our Fourth Wall Event.

With the turnover in station management, many of the security protocols are still offline. Unfortunately for Sacrosanct residents, these include some of the protocols Hypatia had in place to keep the truly dangerous things coming from the rift from escaping the Junkyard.

As detailed in this log, there will be an enormous crash in the Junkyard that makes most of Kurzweil shake. If anyone chooses to investigate, they’ll find that a Reaver ship has crashed, and its inhabitants are loose and pouring through the teleporters into the station itself. They’ll be cut off after several dozen are set loose, but more will intermittently make it through over the next three days.

Shortly after the threat becomes ICly known, some old station logs will begin appearing on characters’ wearables at random. These logs cannot be saved offline, and any attempt to find them in the network will provide no results, as if they’re being moved around through the system.

Sounds like this isn’t the first time this has happened, and the last group didn’t do so well. So how do you survive?

There are bunkers beneath the currently occupied neighborhoods, but one neighborhood will need to go completely offline to provide enough power to run them. There is one medical station online, located between the two remaining neighborhoods, but there is no automated security -- someone’s gonna have to stand guard.

Of course, those willing to fight back are free to do so, but you’ll find the Reavers are a dangerous enemy -- they’ll focus on incapacitation, not killing, in order to torture their victims. They’re human, so they can be killed, but between sheer numbers and their violent tactics, most would be wise to stay away. (If you've never seen Firefly or Serenity, here's a clip to give you some ideas.)

Opt-out: If you’re not interested in participating, your character will make it into one of the bunkers early, where they’ll be sealed in and kept safe.

How will the event end? The number of Reavers will dramatically increase on Saturday, 11/10, as more and more get out of the Junkyard. The most expedient solution will be to cut life support in Kurzweil. All characters will need to go through a teleporter to Garden Zone 01, but fourth wall characters will not make it through. Any character who remains in Kurzweil will die when life support goes offline; those who are not fourth wall characters will respawn as usual after it comes back on.

Thanks for participating in our event! Any fourth wall characters apped is welcome to keep their memories of this event and emerge from a teleporter instead of arriving through the Junkyard. And, of course, you’re still welcome to bring in new characters during this part of the event! They’re just in for a lot of trouble.

I'm sorry guys, I just haven't been able to get my groove back for this game or this particular version of Steph with... I can't even remember how many games she's been through now. Jeez. I'm still available to backtag our mission log if it ever comes back around to me again, but it's time for me to drop out. If I do come back, it won't be with her.

Thanks for the good times, Sing.

The installation of our new station AI has been more or less a success, but the Rift is still there, and it turns out Hypatia's had more protocols in place to keep things stable than Delta's been able to work out right away. With that in mind...

Event Details

From Sunday, November 4th to Saturday, November 10th, characters who are not currently in Singularity may play here. For the purposes of this event, we've set up a side-community: [community profile] singularityevents. The stickied post there has instructions for joining, and even current members must go through it.

Feel free to go ahead and send in requests now; we'll accept them, but we won't turn on posting until Sunday.

Outside Characters

This event welcomes canon-original, AU, CRAU, OCs, and unlimited duplicate characters. If you are not familiar with Singularity's setting, please read through here for details. We also expect you to adhere to our usual gameplay standards and rules, including relevant power-damping.

If you bring a character who is not currently at Singularity and wish to app them, you'll be free to keep any memories from the event. This event will be considered game canon. Details about how the characters leave at the end of the week will be posted next week as part of the event.

Posting Format

Logs, action tags, and network posts are all acceptable. Please make sure all threads for this event are posted to [community profile] singularityevents, and not the usual comms. This only applies to the fourth wall event; all other posts should go to the appropriate game comms.

ETA 11/4: Since there have been questions about this: this means that if you want to make a network post or an open log and have it open to fourth wall characters, please make it in [community profile] singularityevents. If you do not want to participate, just put the post in [community profile] singularityrpg or [community profile] singularitylogs as normal. This is just a way to opt out of the event if you'd rather not get involved with outside characters, since this is a game canon event.

Opt-Out

That's easy; just ignore the event comm! Keep in mind that all events will be game canon, though. Please keep an eye on the OOC comm, though, because these outside characters might not be the only things that get through the rift next week...

I hate to add to the drop pile just when the game's getting back on its feet, but I'm going to be letting go of Nepeta here. Feel free to assume that she disappeared after the takedown mission finished up and everything kind of hit the fan.

I will still be tagging my event log until it reaches its conclusion, however! So don't worry about being left hanging because of this. Thank you guys for giving me a really fucking awesome game experience - this is the first place I ever officially played Nepeta and it will always be a dear place in my heart.

I hate to do this right after the changeover, but Ash is going home. (For handwaving purposes, she disappeared in the teleporters during all the post-Hypatia-takedown shuffling around.)

It's been good, Singlings. See you around. ♥

Hello Sing! Yeah, I know, we've had a lot of mod posts lately; I promise they'll ease up soon.

We'll be putting up an ad on this month's [personal profile] app_this_plz meme when it goes up tomorrow, and what we'd like from you are any character requests you have. Just fill out the form below and leave it as a comment to this post, and we'll toss it in our ATP ad. Thanks!

Please leave in the <textarea> tags!


Expect a post on the fourth wall event later tonight or tomorrow!

Hey, I'm Tetra and I'm new to Sing (obviously). I'll be bringing in one of the Tachikoma from Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex -- specifically, Batou's personal Tachikoma.

Tachikoma are lightly-armed sentient tanks about the size of a car and patterned after terrestrial jumping spiders, like so. They're friendly, energetic, and absolutely cannot resist crawling all over the place and getting themselves into trouble, so there's that, too. Hope to see you around!

I've been saying this on plurk for bloody ages, but the time has come to make it official. I'm dropping Kanaya in Sing. Permanently this time. If she dies in the event, she isn't coming out of a teleporter. If she goes into a teleporter, she won't come back out.

She already prepped for her gardens being destroyed by picking all the fruits and veggies she could manage and leaving them in Kurzweil, so that is her gift to you, people of Sacrosanct. That, a ton of fabric and various outfits in various sizes. Also tea. Just... preposterous amounts of tea.

I'll still be tagging all of her things pre-event, and I will definitely be finishing the event logs, so there's no need to worry about that.

So that's about it. It's been a good run for her. I'll still be around with Eve and Tucker.

Hello, Singularity! Welcome to November, and the manifestation of a great many new things.

Hypatia Plot


The last stage of the Hypatia Plot is still going on! All of the logs are up in the [community profile] singularitylogs community, and feel free to refer to the OOC post if you need a refresher. If you have any questions or need any help, just contact us. Feel free to keep backtagging as long as you'd like! NPC mods will continue to monitor the logs and will drop in as necessary; if you want us sooner or want to plot something out, just drop us a line.

Starting today, the livable area in Sacrosanct is restricted to three neighborhoods in one of R01/Kurzweil's many districts. You can refer to the Maps/Location pages for the full details on which zones are on and offline, but please keep in mind that all other residential zones are inaccessible. Wearables will not allow for transport to those zones.

While the rest of Kurzweil is currently accessible, all automated functions are offline and will remain so until further developments in the metaplot. If you'd like to get involved, you can affect the station (both positively and negatively!) through a Mission.

Your new benevolent overlord is Delta/
[personal profile] alaspooryork. Unlike Hypatia, he cannot watch everything at once -- he's still a PC, not an NPC. If using encryptions on the network, though, please note if he'd be able to hack them.

Fourth Wall Event


We will be holding a Fourth Wall Event next week, November 4 through the 10th. There will be more details about this in a separate post, but everything will be treated as game canon. If you bring a character to Fourth Wall you're interested in apping afterwards, you'll be free to keep their memories.

Game Updates


Applications are now open until 11:59pm EST, November 15th. We have recently overhauled the applications page to make the information more clear and concise, but the general spirit is still the same; please see this post if you need a summary of changes. This also means that Reserves are closed until after the conclusion of the application period.

➨ A number of new information pages have been added; they mostly pertain to game background, but since the information was previously not easily available, we decided it made sense to put some new pages together.

  • History - a synopsis of pre-canon events

  • NPCs - a roster of currently active NPCs

  • Plot Archive - an ongoing record of in-game actions


➨ The following pages have received revisions ranging from minor text clarification to complete revamping:

  • Game Index - the index and footer navigation has been updated to reflect all page edits; please let us know if you find any broken links

  • Setting - revamped to reflect current game status

  • Maps and Locations - marked zone availability, along with minor description edits

  • Character Requests - renamed from old requests page, added 'character modification' request form, along with minor wording edits

  • Plot Requests - renamed from old suggestions page, minor wording edits

  • Missions - changed from old job board; we would like to move to more character interaction and less overhead for economy management, since Sacrosanct will no longer operate on a chit/credit system


Miscellaneous


➨ Please remember to add your information to the Player Contact page if you haven't already done so.

➨ We've got a new look! Check out the profile to see the new game header. We plan on keeping the rest of the page designs, since Carolyn did fantastic work on them, but if there are any design concerns or broken links, please let us know.

➨ We will run the next AC the first week of December. Characters who app in this month will not have to respond to it, but all current characters will need to provide one piece of activity taking place since October 1.

➨ We've set up a comment thread below for a Game HMD. How are we doing? What have you liked, and what haven't you liked? We're still settling in, and if there are things we can do to make the game better, we'd like to know.

[personal profile] singularitymods
Hello, Singularity! Larissa here with the final OOC details for the Hypatia assault. All of the logs have been posted in the [community profile] singularitylogs community, and you're free to start threading!

Please keep the following points in mind:

➨ The scenarios we've provided are a guideline, not a script! You're free to handwave the details and technology as you go. Unless otherwise implied by your log, you can go ahead and pull in hostile NPCs wherever you choose. Remember, the OOC information is provided for your benefit, as a heads up, to help you all in progressing through the plot -- it doesn't mean that your characters have to follow it to the letter.

ICly, all the characters on the mission will have the IC mission briefs. In many cases they won't have any idea what's coming, but that’s half the fun, isn’t it? Additionally, there are some twists and surprises that have been omitted from the OOC information and will be sprung on the teams at the worst possible times. For fun.

➨ Establish a tagging order amongst your teammates right off the bat. Remember to track your threads! (If you don't have a paid account, you can track the post itself or check manually.)

➨ If you are unable or unwilling to complete the rest of the log, let your teammates know. Don't just leave them hanging! If you are unable to continue a log, for whatever reason, please let the rest of the team know! We can handwave, give basic godmodding rights, or whatever else will make this whole event easier on you.

NPCs will spontaneously tag into your threads. This will occur when a new enemy appears, something goes awry, or something changes! They’ll be doing it to make your log more exciting! When that happens, just continue the existing order following the NPC tag or contact your teammates OOCly to change up the order.

➨ Feel free to tag in action or prose. If you find one or the other distracting, please talk to your teammates and find out if anyone has a preference. Generally speaking, though, it’s all good.

➨ If you have any questions about what your character can do or change, please ask. We want this event to be fun and as painless as possible, but with something this large there's bound to be some confusion. If you find yourselves at an impasse, because you need intervention to push the plot along, or you’re just not sure where to go, please let us know.

We're here to do the heavy lifting and organization -- you're here for fun. If there's something we can do to make it better, we're more than open to suggestions. You can use this post or contact us directly.

➨ We've set up a separate post for injuries and deaths. While we'll be following all of the logs, we do need a centralized place to keep track of that sort of thing. If you want your character to perish before the end of the event, please drop a note there and let your teammates know. If you want your character to take a (specific) injury, it’s also a good place to note it. If your character suddenly takes an injury, please post so we have a record.

ICly, the assault will take about a day's time. OOCly, it will last as long as we need it to, but it will be assumed that by November 1st (when apps open) the station will be under new management. Feel free to put up post-event posts then, but as things usually are here, you can backtag as long as you want.

➨ Following the event, Kurzweil/R01 will be the only residential zone online. Reliable power will only be guaranteed in three neighborhoods clustered together. This will increase in the next few weeks and months as part of the metaplot. Characters will ICly know this ahead of time, so if there are things they want to keep from the other residential zones (which will be completely offline) they'll need to move it prior to the assault.

We should have the remaining information page changes done by the time apps open, and will post an OOC post detailing the changes then.

IMPORTANT NOTE

As you may have heard, there's a hurricane headed towards the East Coast. I (Larissa) am directly in its path, and there is a very high chance I will be without power and/or internet during parts of this week. NPC work will be split up between the mods (and Hiku); if you can't get in touch with me, please go to one of them. There's no way of knowing what the situation will be until the storm hits, but if I can't get reliable access enough to post here, please check [plurk.com profile] singmods for updates on who is available. Weather permitting, though, I'll be around as much as I'm able.
