Welcome to 2018 everyone! There was no activity check, really, last month, so there were no characters removed! However, things go back to normal this month, so this is your last chance to get back to normal posting if you want to keep any recently un-played characters! That said, I hope everyone had a good holiday and I hope the year to come brings only good things!
Now that we're back in normal AC requirements, the ICC also goes back to normal rules, meaning you can't play in it before meeting the AC requirements for the month!
Once again, a lovely welcome to all our new members. We had a nice handful last month, despite it being so busy and that was amazing!
Stay tuned for new events! There will be a couple minor changes coming this site's way, as well as a survey regarding the inclusion of some concepts introduced in season 7 of the show (without spoilers, I hope!) so keep an eye out for all of that! For now, things are going to be pretty casual this month, as people return and plots resume. Next month is when a new plot begins, and the fight against the horned king continues!
But if you're looking for something to do in the meantime, why not check out the Swanfire wedding? Looks like things are finally coming together, and now we have an event board for it! Check out the festivities here!
You may have noticed there are now caps on some of the more popular jobs in town. This is too prevent flooding and ensure things remind realistic. Granny's Diner doesn't need forty waitresses, and there are other places that DO need them you could have your character go to instead! Other jobs also capped for the moment include: Cops at the police station, bar tenders at the Rabbit Hole and nurses at the hospital! Don't worry, I'm sure you can come up with other jobs that will be just as rewarding!
The Horned King has landed! A massive castle has appeared in the middle of the forest by Storybrooke! It is a dark, broken down keep that looks long forgotten, but don't be fooled- there is very much something very evil lurking within! A new forum has been created for the castle, which you can find right here. The boards are open for characters to go and explore as you see fit, just keep in mind it may be booby trapped or you may run into the undead! Speaking of- with the emergence of the castle, the legions of the Horned King no longer stalk the town, and have fallen back to the keep to protect it. The Horned King is readying to take over this realm, and brave heroes (or perhaps even villains who dislike someone getting in on their action) need to stop him!
Due to the recent influx of super hero characters, Sector 2814 is currently barred from any new character creation! This includes ALL super heroes, not just those from DC or Marvel! When the tides ebb, the realm will be re-opened for new characters to fall into Storybrooke! ICly, characters may still stumble into the realm itself if so desired! Sorry for the inconvenience!
In generic, always here news: please make sure you head over to the claims board and get any claims you haven't submitted taken care of! This includes job claims, face claims, and the member directory! Also- if you don't have an icon on your account, please get one up! It helps keep the site looking nice and fancy. If you need help, please PM me and I'll get that up for you! We also have some optional claims: Pet, Housing and IC birthday!
If you're dying to have a certain character on board, make sure your Wanted Ads are up to date! I go through and add characters people are looking for to my resource site/tumblr ads, so it's good to keep up on them if there's someone you're super interested in seeing! With the activity check now over, it seems like a good time to update!
Lastly- Season 7 is upon us! Since it's basically AU and not remotely connected to the board, I don't really FEEL like spoilers should matter much, but I will still ask that people be respectful if someone tells them not to talk about it. <3
A NOTE ON PHOTOBUCKET -- So, Photobucket is charging extortionate amounts to direct link with them now, meaning it would be in your best interest to MOVE YOUR PHOTOS to a new host! And I would suggest doing so ASAP if you haven't already, as photobucket is now DELETING everything that is direct linked! My suggestions are Nickpic or PostImage.io. They're both very good sites for hosting images!
