El has been with the site for nearly two years now and has continued to prove her value. Currently, she is heading up our site event, Battle for Liberterram, on top of keeping up with her own personal plots.
Lux's posts are all wonderful to read. She has done a wonderful job of grasping the new universe and incorporating Peggy into it.
It's good to see Spidey back on the site. Watching him deal with the universe shift in his own snarky way has been nothing short of entertaining.
Eight O'Clock on the Dot!
El and Lux are making magic in this thread. Straight up fireworks, and the way they've played with drawing out the reveal is top class.
The staff has been deliberating these last few weeks regarding how Ragnarok will be handled going forward. These changes exist primarily in logistics, in order to keep the plot moving quickly, efficiently, and keep things fun for all parties involved.
First, phase 1 and 2 threads will be ending soon! All phase 1 threads should end on March 11, 11:59 PM EST. Please try and come to some kind of ending point that makes sense. Phase 2 people will have slightly longer. All phase 2 threads should end on March 18th, 11:59 PM EST.
Second, we are moving the date of the event itself and changing how the event is structured. It will now be taking place May 16-18. This means that you are free to thread in the months leading up to this event, which effectively opens March, April and May for everyone. Enjoy the spring months! As to the structure changes, we've reduced the number of phases and streamlined the event. Unfortunately this will require players to sign up again for phases 3-5.
Third, we would like to clarify the amount of time that an individual is granted once it is their turn. You have 72 hours from when the person before you posted. This is three whole days, so please, pay attention to the hour in the post! We do realize that stuff happens and sometimes people don't notice their turn is about to be over until the final moment. So we have an hour grace period. Meaning that you effectively have seventy-three hours to post without it being marked against you. Two offenses of expired turns will result in injury that will disqualify you from most future phases, three will result in your character being removed from the plot, including your present phase due to serious injury/unconsciousness. If you cannot make it within your time for whatever reason, please let a member of the staff know (staff is effectively R. Dani , S.S.A. Aech , R. El right now), and we will accommodate you as best we can.
Fourth, we are going to be introducing cut-off dates for future phases. These dates will be included inside of the starters themselves, and reminders will be given by the admin team as to when to start wrapping things up. If you'd like to help things move faster than the likely month period we'll be doing per round, aim for the Leviathans! These guys shouldn't be torn through like tissue paper, but taking them out will speed things along, since when the last Leviathan falls, it's assumed the forces have been thinned/defeated and the round is over.
Fifth, we would like to reiterate that while there are overarching themes and story elements to each phase, these threads are ultimately your own. That means that if you really want to take down the Leviathan by blinding it and then steering it into the pavement through electric shocks, knock yourself out!
Lastly, if you would like to join Phase 3 and on, sign ups are still open! But Phase 3's cut off date for sign ups will be March 18th, and Phase 4 will be March 25th.
I know that seems like a lot, but hopefully that clarifies things and will make things easier/quicker.
It is that time! We've been in "Prelude to Ragnarok" mode for quite a while here at Mortal Ends, but this month we're going to be starting the plot itself. In this post I shall give a basic timeline and guidelines for the plot. The second post will be for sign-ups. Be sure to read it carefully as only certain characters are eligible for each "Phase" of the battle.
The battle that begins what will be known as Ragnarok takes place over three days and takes place in five phases. The general outline of this begins below. DAY 1:
Phase 1 begins.
Phase 1 ending & Phase 2.
Phase 4 begins and ends.
The battle's official occurrence for purposes of story line will be May 16th - 18th, which is the approximate time we plan on things wrapping up, hopefully.
During the event no threads can be started for the aftermath, even if you choose not to participate in the event itself.
Threads can be started that take place before the battle.
Threads for the event should take priority to all others while it is going on, and many will be running concurrently.
All characters should come out of this battle injured, although the degree of injury will be up to the players themselves. If you so wish, you may even kill your character (but speak to an admin first, please).
You will have three days to post once its your turn in a given thread. If you miss two posts, your character may receive a more serious injury that will disqualify them from further phases. This is simply so we can keep things moving.
Now for the fun part! Please pay close attention to the eligibility for each phase, as not all characters can be in them.
The eligibility and more thorough explanations are listed below. Your character may be listed multiple places in each phase, however please only pick one place each phase for them to be. PHASE 1: Chitauri attack the West Coast.
PHASE 3: The battles are over, but SHIELD intelligence suggests that a bigger attack is around the corner, and that it will concentrate in NYC. Heroes are given time to regroup in NYC, take a break, rest up and get their wounds dressed. This phase lasts all of day 2. This phase is also non-structured, meaning that there will be no threads posted by the staff. Players start their own threads, and are under no posting time limit as they are in Phases 1, 2 and 4.
PHASE 4: Thanos attacks again with the biggest numbers yet. Villains join battle as some heroes will be too injured. Svartalfar must pick their side. Part way through these threads, a major event will happen, heroes will be forced into retreat. And a pivotal battle will emerge.
Location: New York City Eligible: Anyone, except those too injured during Phases 1 and 2.
PHASE 5: The clean-up. This phase will be rather free-form.
Location: New York City Eligible: Anyone that participated in the event.
To sign-up, use the form below. If your character becomes too injured to participate in battle further at some point, please make note of this. While this can be decided at a later point, it will be nice for the admins to know in advance if you plan to injure your character to easier make the groups for threads.
Lastly, if you'd like to refer to the old forms, please look here.
[b]Character:[/b] here [b]Phase 3:[/b] where (remember that this is a non-structured, relaxed phase, and you may choose to forego it entirely, otherwise you and other players will be starting the thread. If you don't want to have your characters go on to regroup in NYC, they can technically have Phase 3 threads wherever) [b]Phase 4: [/b]where [b]Phase 5:[/b] where (cleanup phase, functions similarly to phase 3)
