Drift Fleet is officially three years old this month! As we have noted previously, the metaplot has been ramping up to this, the last major plot of the year. The culmination of players’ efforts over the past several systems and their actions in this one will have a major impact on the outcome of the plot as well as what will happen in the future.

Due to the intense nature of the upcoming event, we’re offering a variety of options that allow you to play in your comfort zone. We don’t want anyone to feel pressured or left out. If none of the options in this post suit you, please contact us via PM and we’ll work something out. ♥

TRIGGER WARNINGS FOR THIS PLOT INCLUDE:
  • Excessive Violence, Gore if players so choose
  • Cannibalism (implied in plot writeups, can be played with by players)
  • DEATH
  • High-Stress/Traumatic Situations
  • Torture/mutilation (implied in plot writeups)
  • Human Sacrifice

    If that hasn’t scared you away - well, first, Happy Almost Halloween! Second, keep reading to find out what’s going on with this planet…

    It's about to get real... )

    New Passengers will find themselves teleported to the bridge of their new ship with no warning! Everyone loves a surprise! There'll be a flutter of confetti, a playful and welcoming musical tune, and small tray with cups of chocolate-flavored pudding desserts sent along to celebrate. Welcome to your new ship, passengers!

  • Some ships have fallen to 60 percent capacity or below. As a result, players have expressed interest in fusing ships! We have a permanent submission page here with the process and forms. Ships with six or fewer people are allowed to apply. If you were considering a fusion, but gained a seventh that was shuffled by the mods, then you are still eligible. Feel free to contact us with any questions!

    Hey guys!

    This is a game wide request for anyone who might be willing to help Yuri and Victor out. Both of them feel much better if there is an ice rink they can practice on. Poshu and I have been plotting together to see about building a rink in the Iskaulit. The mods have told Poshu that we might be able to pull it off if we have IC help building it.

    Basically what we need is characters with resources, ice abilities, or anything else that would help Victor and Yuri build it.

    Once the rink is open, Victor and Yuri will be providing lessons to anyone who wants to learn to skate and the rink will be open for public use.

    Tomorrow, Poshu and I are going to make an open post with Victor and Yuri bringing this up and giving characters a chance to give them input. This post is mostly just for OOC input about how best to go about this and to give people a heads up if they want to participate.

    Anyway, thanks in advance! Keep a look out for the joint post tomorrow!

    Hullo! My name is Kate, I'm totally new and bringing in Anduin Lothar from the Warcraft film.


    (it was super tempting to use this one)


    Lothar is commander of the Stormwind army and looks every inch of it to be honest. Unlike Khadgar, Lothar is not a magic type and relies more on armour and weaponry than flinging spells. Basically a warrior class. Lothar is not one to trust right off the bat and can come across as a bit abrasive, but he just says what he thinks needs to be said. If you're a friend, he'll just tease and torment you with a bro punch to the arm. I could ramble all day, but it's best to say that his app can be found here. He'll be on the SS Caprine and I am super excited to be jumping in. My plurk is [plurk.com profile] enabled and my discord is kate#2465.

    Sorry guys but I'm going to have to let Worf go back to DS9. My life has gotten increasingly busier and I'm finding no time to play Worf and give him the justice he deserves right now.

    Hopefully, I might re-app in the near future, but for now I'm taking my warrior home. It's been fun and thank you!

    Hi everyone, unfortunately I'm dropping Zelda. I've been low on motivation lately and don't feel like I'm doing my part with tags, so I'll be letting her go home to Hyrule.

    This means I'm out of the game too. Thanks to everyone who played with me, either with Zelda or Erik. It's been great fun this last year and a half ♥

    See you around!

    Sorry to the Caprine folks but I'm letting Ezri head back to the Dominion War. I have, I admit, really dropped the ball with her. She hasn't been super active, she's hard to play at this stage in her life, and it just isn't fair to you guys.

    Unfortunately, she wasn't around long enough and didn't have her hands in enough to warrant leaving anything behind but do know that she loved all her CR.

    I'm still here with Khadgar though!

     Well, I kept hoping I'd miraculously recover from life kicking my ass and get my tagging drive back, but it hasn't happened, so I'm dropping Yuan for now. I'm very sorry to everyone, and you're probably not rid of me forever, but I'm bowing out until I pull myself together a little more.

    Relevant to some of you: Yuan's notes on magic will remain where he left them, in Felix's library on the Iskaulit. He's written down a lot of stuff about how magic works in his world and in various others, loosely organized by subjects like elements, races, and types of magic. Here and there, especially with regard to healing magic, the notes contain a word he hasn't used in public: "Exsphere", and sometimes "Exsphere-user". The notes don't explain what these terms mean...unless you can read the ones at the very bottom of the pile, written in Angelic, a dead language from his world mostly used in religious texts.

    These notes describe living gems called Exspheres, which can increase someone's abilities if attached to the skin, but will also gradually warp and drain away the person's soul unless properly controlled, leaving them a soulless shell and the Exsphere with a higher power output for the next person to equip it. There are also descriptions of soul/mana signature distortions resulting from Exsphere exposure, and (the very few) known ways of counteracting them. It's the kind of information that shouldn't be widely available, but should be there to find for determined people.

    Thanks for the good times, everyone!

    Hello everyone! Rachel here, back at it again with a new character; another Lavellan to add to the dragon age mix!


    This is Leilani Lavellan! She's a super duper Dalish elf that loves her people but kind of feels a bit awkward about it since her boyfriend told her half the things she thought were true were actually lies, awkward. He also took her face tattoos and then broke up with her, so that's even more awkward for anyone expecting a Dalish with tattoos! She's coming in from the end of Trespasser but before the very end, so she still has a super cool Anchor popping on her hand and causing all kinds of problems.

    As always, you can find me at [plurk.com profile] aziraphale on plurk for any plotting and pinging and I look forward to flinging her at you!

    So first off, I blame Babs. Second, hi! I'm Debs and I'm bringing Freyja back to the fleet, ready to sing and dance and be really weird at everyone and everything she comes across. She's gonna be personnel again (counselor, specifically), and she's gonna try to sing problems better if she can because that's what she does.

    She's a cute and friendly country girl that REALLY JUST WANTS TO SING and sometimes she lights up and it's embarrassing or cute depending on the context. Also she is committed to sparkling 24/7 to making people happy. And she is not afraid to be incredibly reckless. Sheee is also going to be remembering her last stay here! Yayyy.

    Go ahead and add me on plurk at [plurk.com profile] kyuupin or on Discord at kyuupin#1580. It's nice to be back!

    It's the Fleet's final day in the system. The Marsiva will begin drifting onward shortly, all of the ships automatically preparing for regroup and departure.

    The Fate of the Eyuzi System )

    ------

    As of this post, the fleet is now pulling away from the Eyuzi system, full speed ahead and without looking back. We will be drifting from 9/28 to 10/13.

    Your usual garden variety waystations can be found along the way! Of note during this two-week drifting period: The first few waystations the fleet happens across will have many Lyukite families holed up there - ones that escaped on their own ships, or somehow found a ride away from the space station. Perhaps they're on their way to start lives elsewhere, or maybe they haven't heard the good news yet - feel free to let them know!

    Later into the second week, the waystations become more and more deserted. Run-down. Almost flat-out abandoned. A few even look like anyone there may have just dropped everything and left in a hurry.

    Happy Drifting, dear fleet!!

    Hi, Flooters! Activity check is going to start on 9/29, so please make sure that your characters' activity requirements are listed next to their names on the September AC spreadsheet.

    As a reminder, Upgrades are completely optional, but we'll be processing any and all orders at the end of the month. Thank you!
