Welcome to the Activity Check for Synodiporia! Standard Activity consists of the following:
A total of thirty comments in two or more comment threads.
All of your comments must have been made in the current AC period, but the thread itself could have been started at any time in the last sixty days. At least one thread submitted for activity needs to have been started within the current activity period.

Backtagging is fine with us (and we most definitely encourage it!), but we do want you to be involved in current events! Using more than one thread within the same post is acceptable, but if you have more than thirty comments in one single thread, you still need a separate thread. If you made the initial post, it may count as one comment towards the total thread length.

To gain a skill, you must turn in
A total of forty-five comments in three or more comment threads.
● Characters on their first jaunt may claim one skill for meeting standard AC per month of their first jaunt (no more than two skills total).
For jaunt skills, at least one of these should mention the character’s interest in or practice of the skill in question (this is not required for Liminal, Psychic Network, or Combo skills). Psychic Network Skills are listed here, Liminal Skills are listed here, and Combo Skills are listed here.

To gain two skills, you must turn in
A total of sixty comments in three or more comment threads.
And one of the following prerequisites must be met:
● The character is in a plot-important role for the current Jaunt.
● At least one skill is a Favor skill, i.e., a skill given to a character by one of the Arcana.
● At least one skill is a character-taught skill of any type.
As above, the thread proof should mention the character’s interest in or practice of the skill in question (though this is not required for Liminal, Psychic Network, or Combo skills). Psychic Network Skills are listed here, Liminal Skills are listed here, and Combo Skills are listed here. For more information on Skill AC, see here.

If you made standard activity, please comment using the correct character journal under the top-level thread labeled SEPTEMBER ● Standard AC. If you made single or double skill activity, comment using the correct character journal under the top-level thread labeled SEPTEMBER ● Skill AC. If you’re claiming a skill for your new character hitting standard activity, comment using the correct character journal under the top-level thread labeled SEPTEMBER ● First Jaunt Skills. The AC and Skill mods will do all the rest!

Standard Activity
Characters gaining a skill
First jaunt skill claims

Please note that AC is due no later than SEPTEMBER 30TH at 11:59 PM Central US Time/OCTOBER 1ST at 4:59 AM GMT.

Characters accepted when we close the app box tomorrow night will not be expected to submit AC, but are welcome to do so if they wish.

If you have not made AC, report under the the Standard AC thread with the word ❝ hiatus ❞. If you are reporting hiatus for the second month running, contact the mods to avoid being idled into a dungeon dimension. For more information regarding the activity policies here at Synodiporia, please read through the Activity Policies page.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to leave them in the appropriate thread located here and we'll get back to you ASAP.

Some quick scheduling notes

Hi all! Just a quick update about scheduling, and the timing of the next app window:

The current app window is still open, and will be until Tuesday night Central US time/early Wednesday morning GMT. The intro mingle and jaunt info will follow after that; we're aiming for an eight-day intro mingle, to ease back into the eight-day-jaunt-mingle cycle for Night Falls on Yensid.

The next app round after this one will be held after the December Liminal Space event, rather than immediately after the jaunt ends in November, so people don't have to worry about establishing a new character in the midst of holiday travel.

We'll see you on Wednesday with post-app stuff!

Try everything?

[OOC: backdated to a few days after the beginning of Lotus Liminal while Jean is still sleeping but just before his dreamspace happens.]

So, anyone know why someone just keeps on sleeping like he might just --- sleep through the whole Liminal time if this continues? Or any ideas how to wake him up? Besides waiting, I'm doing plenty of waiting already and sure, it's most likely waiting for something to happen but... Oh, I guess also ideas of what to do while I'm waiting.

[Not that she's keeping an eye on him 24/7, no she can come up with things to do on her own! ...But guess who is bored of waiting even when she's not that impatient these days?? So, what's this? Pretend like she doesn't already know that it's about waiting and have fun with the entertaining ideas? Something like that, maybe.]

I think my envy of Jean's sleeping skills is gone by now and no, he hasn't even been anywhere near the marshmallows and he's nowhere near them now either.

So, fellows, I'm not sure if that dear chap that calls himself our alpha has informed any of you, but he's passed a birthday while out gallivanting about with dragons and that lot. I think it's a fine excuse for a celebration, and it's only proper we should organize it.

Sweets are a must, but no processed sugars. Entertainment, drinks, we shall need a guest list of course. Any ideas, what?

Let's start Liminal Writer's Club!

Hello, everyone!

I have been wondering lately how many writers or aspiring writers we have among our number, and if anyone would be interested in forming a writing society for Travelers.

Anyone and everyone would be welcome, of course, no matter your skill level. I am absolutely certain that those of us with more experience in the matter would certainly help those with less experience.

So, please let me know if this is something you would be interested in. Space, food and drink, as well as pens, ink, and paper will be provided, of course.

Anybody ever made a wall out of liminal goo before?

[This is apparently a live feed, from the inside of something like a mecha cockpit. There's a targeting reticule in soft blue, marked "WEAPONS: SAFETY ON," and a few subsystems with diagnostics labeled by name - ZERO and KHKU and ALRA are the active ones.

This is under a murky brown sea - the temperature reading has it as a comfortable 100 degrees Farenheit.

The reason this is getting livestreamed becomes apparent when a merlion enters view. The livestreamer focuses on that, waving hello with a blue glowing gauntlet. The merlion looks over, then starts to lazily swim away. The streamer just keeps watching it - the ripples of its movements, the irridescence of it's red and gold fur.]

It has... come to my attention that my Overlay, while... under the influence of that foul thing... inflicted several Travellers with a particular form of madness that I am all too familiar with.

Repeat it in red! 'This is a major Higurashi spoiler!' )

[Drizzt's mind suddenly and without warning rolls forth, his anger slamming into the network, his thoughts barely coherent as the Hunter fights for control.]

My parents are gone. I must bring them back. One of you must know. Tell me now!

[Never before in Synodiporia has Drizzt Do'Urden been so fully enraged, filled with anger that is so much easier to feel than the agonizing pain of losing his father after they had truly become father and son. In his anger, he unhelpfully does not state where he is. Only some that know him well might figure it out.]

[OOC: Psychic post OTA. Feel free to yell at him for being a dick, too.]

A day or two into Lotus Mingle

[Kinji sounds... less himself than usual. There's a distinct lack of energy to his words, the very strong impression of his face being buried in his hands.]

If anyone who got sent off t'Walkabout wants t'know what happened durin' Harrogate, I came back with a whole heap a' my overlay's footage. Still gotta go over an' edit it, but I got the whole final battle, fer the most part, an' a pretty decent chunk a' the rest a' the month. So long as y'all don't mind it bein' filtered through me. [because he knows how many people he actively annoys just by existing]

Anyone want out a' that footage, lemme know an' I'll fix that. Alcuin, I'm gonna go an' ask that I get t'keep all the footage we got durin' yer interview, but if y'all don't want it hangin' round, then by all means lemme know. Anyone wanna help me add t'this, make a full account a' what went down an' not just Kris's, gimme a shout. Anythin' I ain't got footage for, I got memories I plan on uploadin' too - gonna leave everythin' in the library when I'm done.

[Not long after the return to Liminal, in a timeframe better measured in minutes than anything else, Kitty starts broadcasting. It's quiet at first but quickly gets louder as she's clearly working herself into a fit, dropping any ability to filter from the network as she goes.]






(To those who'd actionspam at her instead of responding on the network, she's just standing rooted to the spot where she arrived, staring at a moose-sized dragon opposite of her, who seems to be rather unsure of how to help her, considering that she dodges every time the dragon tries to get closer, without ever moving away further. Her whole body is tense, her fingers curled, and those who can see through masks will notice that her whole body language resembles that of a thoroughly spooked cat.)]

Asking The Real Questions

Did anyone keep the ability to build limbs from our trip to Nova Venezia, or otherwise know how to build them with the same level of articulation.

Second of all, is there any specific food anyone wants? I will be hosting something besides hot chocolate and marshmallow flowers as soon as I can manage to get enough supplies made for a get together.


We did good, and a party is well deserved I think.
