First of all, hi! It's Malia, and I'm still alive. Work has been pretty hard on me, but I'm doing my best to keep myself in here.

Anyway, the main reason for this post! I've contacted our wonderful mod about an event idea I had, but I need some help flushing out the details and I thought it'd be fun to include everyone in the process.

For those of you unfamiliar with Breath of the Wild, there are these little forest spirits called Koroks that you can find and they give you seeds. Sometimes you can find them under rocks, but most of the time you have to solve a little puzzle for them to come out. I thought it'd be fun if they suddenly showed up in Riverview. I had the idea that if a character got a seed from one and they planted it, that they'd get something special to that particular character. I have gotten permission from the mod to make it a little something from the character's home world, so long as it's something pretty small. As for what these seeds could grow in to, well, that's what I'd like to hear from you about!

As for finding the Koroks in Riverview, they could be anywhere. Maybe your character trips over a rock in the park, and one pops out. Maybe you find a strange ring of coffee cups outside a cafe or even in your kitchen, and if you place the missing one in the right spot, out pops the Korok.

Here's a video that maybe explains Koroks than I did. I made sure that there were no story spoilers for the game in there, so feel free to watch.

Please feel free to post any ideas or questions here! I think this would be a fun little thing to play out with everyone!

[The boy who appears on screen is making a concentrated effort to look cheerful and welcoming as he stands in front of a small shop. Small, for now, he hopes. There's a sign behind him naming the location:

He looks away for a moment and the brandishes a number of sweets.]

I'm sorry to interrupt you all today but I am pleased to announce that Funtom's Toys and Candy is now ready to open officially. And in celebration, I am going to be giving away a piece of candy or a curry bun to each visitor for our first day.

[He sets them aside, raising a fist to his mouth to give a couple coughs.]


We will also be hiring, whether to sell products or for the sake of a creative outlet. Funtom aims to delight adults and children alike, after all.

[Another couple of coughs, quickly stifled.]

If you have any questions or suggestions, please, don't hesitate to speak up.

glitterpants: (( 112 karamatsu girl ))
[personal profile] glitterpants posting in [community profile] riverview
[ Despite being relatively quiet on the network, Karamatsu has been keeping up to date with what has been happening in Riverview. Well, what was important to him, anyway, and what was important to him was the fact there was going to be a masquerade this week. Going to bed every night and knowing there are people out there who don't have perfect fashion for this sort of thing was making him feel determined, and dare I even say.. proactive.

Unfortunately, when Karamatsu becomes inspired, it's usually pretty bad.
Today, he's dressed in this and seems awfully proud of it.

He strikes a pose, spreading the wings out to show off all of the colors with an exclamation of "bang!" which is nothing like the sound a bird should make (was he bird or just being extra??? we just don't know.) Then, he relaxes, cupping his chin with one hand. ]

Heheh. It seems there's going to be a party on Saturday. If you want to look as perfect as me, I will be happy to help and tailor you an outfit if you do not have one. Please, no payment is necessary. Take it as kindness from my own heart, as I do not want anybody to have an insufficient costume for such an event.
Thank you.
[ And that's it? He also ruined his identity by posting this early, but hey, that's fine. ]

Has anyone noticed the message board at headquarters?

[Yes, he's talking about the Perimeter Guard missions.]

I've had a really bad feeling lately, and my suspicions are that I'm not alone on this one.

[He knows how touchy some people can be about saying against this place, but Ed and gods didn't mix well. He spent too much of his life denying their existence just to spend five years under the power of them, or at least beings claiming to be them - and if he eventually could convince himself they weren't, he'd be much happier. That didn't mean he wanted a repeat of that.]

Some of the stuff going on recently has been a little too familiar for my liking, and if there's any possibility that some sleeping god is behind it, I'm going to go check it out.

[It's not easy spending your life afraid of glitter, okay. Between the carnival, the glitter, the sudden influx of people - which he's learned just began a few months ago - this place was starting to look suspiciously like a certain other event in his life. Even if he's wrong, he doesn't even want to chance that this thing waking up is going to change the dynamic everyone had grown so used to here.

If it being asleep is what's causing the portal to function the way it is, though? He doesn't want to kill or destroy it, either. In his experience that would send most people, if not everyone, home - and a lot of the residents here didn't want that. If he was being honest, himself included.]

[ooc: Chloe and Ed are at it again, Chloe will have a log up sometime next week to get this plot going. In the meantime, Ed's suspicions are super high and no one else cares so he's none too happy, atm. I will be throwing up a public plurk for plotting and discussion, and linking it here once I've put it up.]

masquerade: ooc auction signs up

spellslots: DNT (I know I've got a big ego)
[personal profile] spellslots posting in [community profile] riverviewooc
Hey folks, as per Doom's announcement, there will be a bachelor/ette component at the masquerade, and this here post is for signing up, and for finding potential bidders. This way everyone has the opportunity to make their decisions about who they want to ~win~ their character's auction OOCly, rather than getting into IC bidding wars (unless you want to have IC bidding wars, in which case, be my guest) and worrying about who has the most money.

You can sign up your character along with their highest bidder in the thread here, using the very simple form below, once decisions are made. Until then the rest of this post can be used as a plotting post. Just drop a comment with a little description of your character including if they'd have given a preference for bidders, and interested parties can say hi! If you're super popular and having trouble deciding, feel free to RNG the bidders to make the decision easier.

NOTE: OOCly, everyone needs to agree that their character signed up for the auction, but you're welcome to say they were volunteered by someone else ICly, Doom don't care.

NOTE 2: As a response to some questions we got, I've got a couple clarifying points
1) Is there a limit to how many bids a character can place/win? No, but don't be a dick, let other folks have the opportunity to win auctions and build CR!
2) Can characters bid on behalf of someone else? Yes, but make sure it's OOCly discussed and don't use it as a way to get around preferences
3) What is the IC set up going to be? There will be a stage in the main hall where the bachelor/ettes will go up, with someone (Doom?? Loki?? Who knows) announcing/managing the bids. You can assume characters will have been asked to provide a little spiel about themselves, but you don't have to actually write it if you don't want.


"As well as I profess to know the Batman, even I can't be sure what he was thinking when he agreed to assume legal custody for the orphaned boy who would be the first Robin. But I can tell you about this boy. He was fearless. He was effusive. And he was full of grace."
