akycha: Bowing Out
Dear Soft Reset Community,
I regretfully have to leave you all. I have realized that it simply isn't fair of me to hold onto Freya in the "hopes" that I will have more time to roleplay in the coming weeks.
Although I have recently completed my horrible, awful, no-good, very bad month of Grant Applications, I will hopefully be doing fieldwork this summer, which means that my schedule, while not particularly pinned down, is likely to be full. In any case, you are not interested in my excuses!
The little roleplay I have been privileged to participate in has been very good indeed (although I have been somewhat intimidated by whole paragraphs
suddenly appearing!) and it is with deep regret that I release Freya to someone who will have time to give her the attention she deserves. I still think that she's a great character to play and that this is a fabulous concept for a MUX and I hope you all have lots of fun. I'll be over there, trying to get my Ph.D before I die of old age.
Thank you again! I salute you all! Quit reading this and go have fun!
Other Rose, no longer Freya's player
It's been loads of fun, but I don't think I can devote the attention the game deserves. ^_^;
I'm really sorry if this disappoints anyone, but you know the routine: School, work, RL before RP, blah blah blah, so I won't go into all that.
In short, it's been great, but I should vacate the role of Paine so that she can be played by someone with the time and energy for this great game.
The caveats I mentioned in my first post still apply: this is a specially-created dress sphere, so while I have no problem with people using it, let me know beforehand so I can keep track, and remember that you wouldn't have had it from Spira; it would have been picked up afterwards.
That said:( Technomage!Collapse )

This weekend, there's about to be a bit of an electrical problem in Iifa. A batch of really tainted Thunder Materia was smuggled in by a couple of unnamed individuals who then got too close to the Lake and... yeah, the crate got accidently dumped over and the whole lake is a field of electricity, which is also billowing out to the roots of the tree and up the branches and balconies.
Static electricity everywhere and if you go outside you risk getting zapped by random bits of electricity. Machina go haywire in the meanwhile, or just fizzle out and don't function.
And of course, if you /do/ get zapped, it can cause a number of side effects. Anything from amnesia to... power changes. ;) This is up to each player. In the meanwhile, feel free to switch your powers around or have some funky side effects.This plot starts tomorrow and lasts till Sunday. (Powers changes are subject to Staff approval. If you are already approved, you must go to the OOC room and be set unapproved to change them.)
We are, of course, requiring the use of the new Powers Guidelines now, which are found here: http://www.livejournal.com/community/softreset/25029.html?mode=reply

I'm posting this for a friend. Feedback encouraged!
When I started wondering how else people might make use of the lifestream, other then Shin-Ra type purposes, some fairly nifty(at least to me) concepts occured to me. So I wrote them up and thought they might either make good potential additions to the game, or at least serve as a starting point for someone else's ideas. ^_^ So here're my ideas for two new, Soft Reset-specific job classes. ( The Lifestream Wizard and Lifestream Artificer(Names tentative)Collapse )
The following FCs are over 2 weeks idle and have not posted to the vacation board or let staff know their situations. They are at risk for being set Open. Please contact me with an @mail to let me know that you are still interested.
I will be waiting till Sunday, Feb 22nd before pulling characters.
The following people are very near the 2 week mark, and are just being given a warning:
Remember, if you idle your FC alt over two weeks without posting to the Vacation board or alerting staff to your situation, we will be setting your character Open for other players to take.
On the subject of Magic powers.
Rather than count each spell as one powers slot, if you are a magic oriented character, you may instead lump spells together by level and spell class.
For example- We'll take a magic oriented OC for example here. Oumi has...( Read more...Collapse )
Reminder: This is only for people who are strictly spell casters (white mages, black mages, summoners, etc). If you want to combine abilities and spells, then each spell will still count as 1 power.
Special and High spells. At this time, we're not allowing any of the high and special level spells. However, you may choose to put 1 spell in your high level slot if it comes from one the 'Varied' spells catagory.
We take that back. Spell casters are allowed 2 high level spells of their choosing. Any of the high level spells, or varied.
High- 2 spells maximum.
Mid- 5 spells maximum.
Lows- 8 spells maximum.
These specialized spell casters are not allowed to take other abilities that are not magic related. (Overdrives, Summons creatures and any abilities related to magic and spellcasting are allowable.)
People were asking for examples of Stains. So I'm providing a few here. :)( Shiny!Collapse )
This isn't a cut and dried list. It's just to give people an idea of what they can do for Stains.
