Some details here... but mostly, it's pretty open!

Halloween

So, we have an idea for Halloween at [insanejournal.com profile] otherways this year:

Scenes from a Hat (to thieve from Whose Line is it Anyway), though, really more like 'costume from a hat', but the basic idea is:

There will be a hat (or other round-type receptacle) placed on the bar and it will be filled with little pieces of paper with costumes listed on them. Each character will be able to draw a piece of paper out of the hat, thus choosing his/her costume.

The mods will be putting together this list of 'costumes' that will be in the hat.

Here's how this will work:

This weekend-ish, a post will go up for the 'hat' and characters will have an opportunity to approach and 'draw' from the hat by posting a comment to the main post. The 'bar' will reply with the costume that was drawn and the character will be on his/her way.

The costume ideas will be pretty generic, so players will still have 'free reign' over what the character gets to dress up as, but the selection will be narrowed a bit for you. =)

The 'hat' will be enchanted so characters cannot throw their choice back and try again. Sorry, no 'do overs'. Hell, in this place, if you try to put it back, you might lose an arm. The bar's not always on par with niceties. She used to poison the patrons, for crying out loud. *eg*

Any questions - feel free to drop 'em here!

The 'holy crap!' Halloween antics at Otherways!

So - what would folks like to try this time?

Toss out some ideas, then we'll put up a poll! If you place nice, it might even have a ticky box.

Hullo,

Close behind Claire is Mark Renton, from the movie 'Trainspotting'. I go by the handle 'Addict', and look forward to getting into the game.

Hello all!

My name is Eileen, and I've recently joined the game as Claire Fisher from Six Feet Under. It's taking me a bit to get adjusted, but I look forward to playing with all you fine folks :)

...or bow beneath his corporate greed.

Whichever works for you.

The face may be familiar to some from play about a year or so ago, but the character is new. This is Ba'al. Technically, Ba'al and at least one of his clones (there were many). This post has some key information about Ba'al, his clone and what is vaguely planned for them.

Hi!

I think, since I shouldn't have much in the way of random interruptions, Greyden's party will be the weekend of the 9th. (Unless I get everything in order and set it up for the 2nd.) ETA: strike that... it'll happen when I get back from vacation, b/c next week at work is gonna be hella-hellish and 'Daddy' won't be available to see his baby girl this weekend (or possibly the following weekend and I'll be gone the one after that), so earliest possible is the 30th. We'll see what happens.

If anyone has a strong preference for one or the other, let me know. *g*

Greyden's first birthday is coming up next month (17 August) and she's gonna have a party.

Question is - what's a good time for folks? Next weekend, the 1st? or the following weekend, the 9th?

See, the 16th isn't so good for me, b/c I'm leaving on the 18th (that Monday) for the DC area to catch my flight the next morning to Vancouver.

Technically I *could* do it on the 16th if that works out better for everyone else, but I wanna get some feedback first!

And our bartender is currently offering up Happy Hour* for any and all interested.




* for the first time ever, I did not type 'Harry House' instead of 'Happy Hour' - go me!

Right - so, I'm in the midst of reading the newest of the Dresden books. What does this mean to my RP status? Not much, save that I'm going to do much active posting until I'm done. I have about 250 pages to go - not too bad.

However - if you want any of my pups to tag - let me know and I will. ;)

I've gone through all the entries in the main comm and added character tags. Please to be continuing this trend for ease of pup identification and activity checks. Grazie!


We now return you to your regularly scheduled RP!

As most of you coming here know, this is an import from otherways, a game on LiveJournal. It was decided to bring the game here in the hopes of increasing play and getting some new blood into the game...

But we didn't want to cut off the LJ game since some people don't want to move.

As such, we're saying that any of the characters being brought from the LJ game have 'shifted' in reality just the tiniest bit to a slightly different version of the bar. None of the events (such as the Tutu and the final defeat of the Tutu) have changed. That said, there will be a few twitches from this change. Some of the characters (such as Seph [insanejournal.com profile] witch_boy) are from the reality that the LJ game shifted into and as such, will be a little confused at the changes. Feel free to have a completely-new-to-otherways character be from the shiftee universe as you like; just make sure you talk to any other shiftee pups who would know you.

The head of security, officially, is Seph McCauley, but he's working things out with [insanejournal.com profile] nightismybeat Nick Knight, who was head of security at the LJ game version.

For reference, the bartender before Ellison in the shiftee universe was Jiraiya from Naruto.

...any questions? Please let me know.

Here's my group:

[insanejournal.com profile] svu_ada - Alexandra Cabot - from L&O:SVU. She originally came to the bar as Laura Harper, but found out that's not who she really was. She was taken by the Knights of the Holy Order after she was shot by a drug dealer and was going to be placed in Witness Protection. (Kinda beats the crap out of working as an insurance claims adjuster named 'Emily' doesn't it?) (Greyden is coming too, of course. *g*)

[insanejournal.com profile] i_vanquish_evil - Michael (Van Helsing) - from Van Helsing. A long, long, long history; movie canon (mostly) stands, but after that, things are different. Moving along rather nicely until he loses Carl to illness in 1927. Seventy years later, they're reunited and they do a little housecleaning back at the Order. Now Michael's in charge and things run a little more smoothly.

[insanejournal.com profile] it_was_one_kiss - Stacy Radburn (Warner) - from House, MD. She signed off to have the debridement performed on Greg's leg and left not too long after that. However, she didn't get married, she broke her ankle, bumped into Greg in the clinic and they started to reconnect. She's in NJ for a follow-up and is supposed to meet Greg in a bar, but she ended up in other!Milliways instead.

[insanejournal.com profile] sensitive_cop - James Ellison - from The Sentinel. He's still a cop with Cascade PD, but since he's blind (the effects of the drug Golden never completely wore off, so he can only see vague golden outlines around things and people), he can't work in the field the way he used to, but he gets called in on cases to use his heightened senses for forensic investigative purposes. He's one of the few people who was in the bar before the first Tutu attack, but not during. Unique perspective he has. And he keeps hoping, one day, Natalie will be there again. Gotta have something to hope for.

[insanejournal.com profile] wizard_dresden - Harry Dresden - from The Dresden Files (books). This is the 'new' version of other!Harry. The first one has gone and returned as an eight-year-old boy who managed to weasel his way into the life of a grouchy one-legged doctor. He's pretty sure he helped Greg as much as Greg helped him. He's a professional stage magician and one kick-ass-mother-fucker of a wizard. Taught by Warden Morgan, he doesn't have the same control issues that canon!Harry has, but he still has that temper. Don't cross him or pain may become your best friend. Just ask Greg's father.

[insanejournal.com profile] sexycolonel_sg1 Jack O'Neill - from Stargate SG-1. He's getting bumped along in the Stargate timeline so I can play out a plot. But, he's essentially the same Jack, but he's got a LOT more residual Ancient database stuff left in his head. He's also been boning Martouf back home (not the one that was in the bar before). And he's not in love with Sam Carter.

[insanejournal.com profile] macleod_connor Connor MacLeod (of the Clan MacLeod) - from Highlander. He's still the brat from before and still requires the kick in the pants from Nick to keep him straight. He's like his canon!counter-part from the perspective that he's kind of an ass and not overly talkative, but he's quite a bit of a spoiled brat who thinks he actually IS still eighteen.

[insanejournal.com profile] snikt_snikt Logan (Wolverine) - from X-Men. Like canon, he's got the claws and the bad attitude. Unlike canon, he can't control the claws at all - though, it's gotten a little better over the last year or do. He's also gotten some kind of hint that he needs to go home and help out some people he thinks he remembers, but he's not sure.

I think that's everyone I'm bringing over for now. (Tommy, Martouf, Dawn, Sarah MacKenzie - all dropped. Jarod's moved over to Under the Rainbow, unless someone wants to chat with him here.)

Daddy!House has been turned into an NPC to be played when necessary.

Bob the Skull (book) is still an NPC - he lives in Harry's room all cozy w/ his porn.
[identity profile] fireballdemon.insanejournal.com
So. Misha here. I'm starting off with five of my babies.

[insanejournal.com profile] dancingraymond is Raymond Wood, from Girl From Rio. Ray was intro'd over at LJ. He has done hard time for the murder of his wife and her lover, who was Ray's boss. Ray got away with the bank robbery, and has the money hidden away. No one has ever suspected him of that job.

[insanejournal.com profile] fireballdemon is A.J. Crowley, from Good Omens. A 6000 year old demon, Crowley does not speak. He takes on a variety of identities, able to change at will, but all human forms will wear sunglasses. If you'd like Crowley to assume your character's face, let me know and he can do so (as long as we can locate pics-in-sunglasses for icons), and likewise please let me know if you'd rather Crowley NOT assume your character's face. The thing you really need to know about Crowley, since he doesn't talk, he may reply with images rather than words. I use Heath Ledger as the main face of Crowley, but many others may be seen as well, obviously.

[insanejournal.com profile] gotcanewillpoke is Greg House. He has his LJ-O!ways back story firmly in place. He lost his leg to the infarction, and uses a prosthetic. He's battled his daddy issues, both as a son, and as a father. He is, oddly, my most stable House shaped pup.

[insanejournal.com profile] quiet_cowboy is Ennis Del Mar, from Brokeback Mountain. I play Ennis as a means to honor the memory of Heath Ledger. This Ennis got a little too rough with Jack one night, and snapped his neck, killing him instantly. Because Ennis himself snapped, psychologically, the authorities believe Ennis was forced to assault Jack, and that he was as much a victim as Jack. Ennis has been in a mental facility for a couple years, and he does not speak.

[insanejournal.com profile] windycitywizard is TV!verse Harry Dresden. He comes from LJ, and has his history from LJ intact. His other is that he can't touch people skin to skin without getting zapped with the other person's energy.

So that's my guys. They're all available for plotting and playing and what not.
[identity profile] svu_ada.insanejournal.com
Need to get official word from Danii, but the current consensus is: we'll get started in a week or so (or when a majority of the folks from LJ have migrated over).







(( this used to be the TEST post, this seems more practical *g* ))

[personal profile] i_just_did
(Alex has pd acct for now, so poll from her)

There's been a suggestion / request from a few players in the game to shift play to InsaneJournal and away from LiveJournal.

Reasons to move? 100 free icons; for now, $40 permanent accounts; other stuff listed in Misha's post below; new folks to ensnare...

Reasons to stay? Everything's already here (though, this can be remedied w/ LJarchive); don't have to make new journals; don't like change...


[Poll #1124672]


We'll leave the poll up until the 26th (Saturday), then the modly types will decide what's the what.
