Halloween is only a week away! So, what do you all have planned? Any Conversations with Dead People? Any fun costumes for your characters? Anything else?

And hey, any players out there want to share their own fun costume plans, while we're at it? ^_^

Hiya Folks,

A bit of housekeeping before getting to Happy Hours for this week.

 A Big Milliways thank you to all the people who app'd. You should all be ready to go. 
The Cast and Contact Lists have not be updated yet, but I'm hoping to get to that tonight. But if not...likely tomorrow.
By Wednesday, the latest.

Happy Hour shifts this week include:

Today, or what's left of it.
Tomorrow! all day.
Wednesday
Thursday
Friday

They go to the first good home that claims them.
Have at!

Blame [personal profile] sunbaked_baker for this one...
At the risk of sending everyone into the internet black hole that is TV-Tropes, what are your favorite tropes that appear in your pups' canons? Or what tropes do you find yourself using in your own writing?

For example, I'm a sucker for Badass Bookworms trying to Refuse the Call, and Affably Evil, Deadpan Snarkers. Surprise, surprise. ^_^

Hi there, Milliways! My name's Catharine and I'm brand new to this game, after being in the Dreamwidth RPG scene for a while and then kind of vanishing for a few years, then getting the itch to play back. I'm bringing in Graverobber, the grave-robbing, drug-dealing, plot-narrating character from Repo! the Genetic Opera.

I'll put up a post to the bar for Graverobber later today, but I figured I'd say hello since I'm brand new to the game. Looking forward to meeting/playing with you guys!

Do I bid on a pair of hand-knitted socks and take a chance that the knitter will be able to do royal blue with a pattern of silver stars, or do I not? On the one hand, squee! On the other hand, I'm worried I'll accidentally ruin them when trying to wash them, and then there's the accidental hole in the heel problem, and the 'oops, crap, I tugged a loose piece of yarn and now things are all unraveling' problem, and...

Decisions, decisions. :)

It *does* look like one pair of wrist warmers will happen, which is an absolute delight, socks or no socks. Royal blue cabled secondarily in silver, or if not true silver, then as close a silvery grey as the knitter can manage. And they will be my own commission, in my own color pair, and no one else will have had a hand in besides myself and the crafter. Assertion of my own identity, separate from family expectations and ideas, feels a little like joy and a little like righteous defiance. And it's for a beyond worthy cause, so triple score.

Halloween Plot - Doll Invasion

On Halloween, the bar will find itself overrun with creepy porcelain dolls*. They aren't normal dolls, but extra creepy ones from Wilford's world.

Some time in the morning (Pacific time), Wilford will come into the bar and accidentally bring one with him. This is the queen doll, and from her will spawn even more dolls. She'll be hiding somewhere until the end of the day.

Basic horror rules apply. They are animate, they are creepy, and they probably want to harm you. The dolls can be as dangerous as you want or need them to be. They may want to just tug on your clothes and creep you out. They may want to pick up a fork and stab you with it. They'll move whether or not you're looking at them, but aside from that, they have no supernatural powers. Being injured by one will only hurt as it should. Only the queen doll can summon more, which she will be doing constantly. They're also made of porcelain, so they're pretty easy to smash and kill. Once you break the vessel, the doll is dead.

The queen doll will be killed by the end of the night (there's no set time; just at a point where it seems like things are winding down, or it's getting late), and with her all of the others will fall lifeless to the floor, to be disposed of in whatever way possible. An announcement will be made in the back room when the queen doll is dead, so all players can react accordingly.

The doll invasion itself is to be kept in a single, contained post. If you do not want to deal with the dolls, they will be super easy to avoid as they will only be in one place.

I've a day of waiting between water polo games, so entertain me peoples! This one suggested by Fi.

How does your character feel about nicknames and their name? Do they have one? Do they bristle when called the wrong name? What name do they prefer?

one post!

So for the tail end of the Translation plot, let's pretend your pup has just been woken but they are barely awake, like maybe they're a third conscious. For some reason, they are not talking as they normally do; perhaps they have a weird accent or a stuck in a dream they'd been having where they were a horse and so can't word.

Or maybe they have a fever.

Either way, tell us about what they sound like!

The translation plot is such fun, I love all the places on the spectrum of misunderstanding from missing a few things to charades. Also I figured out how to use Aurabesh in a post.

Varric's back, I'd forgotten how much fun he is and I love the Dragon Age characters take on the translation plot.

Baze and Chirrut find all the fish, Loki and more questions.

Enzo's take on the translation fail is amazing.

Now this is only part of what's going on in Milliways, tell me what you're reading and loving.

two posts!

I'm working on a plot for Sahaal that would involve him looking in the Bar's library for some intel he needs at the moment. I've been planning to do this part of the plot as a short story, but I've got a bit of a problem. There doesn't seem to be an actual description for the library anywhere that I can find.

Now, I know this is Milliways, and it probably changes décor every second Friday, but I was hoping that there was something I could build from. If anything's out there, or if you have an idea about its appearance, I'd really appreciated if you'd clue me in.
