9:00 am - It lives! It lives!

kielisyl
I'm sure all of you have heard the merry news that the game and the forum are back online. Yaaay!

So I'm assuming the TP is still on for this week. The schedule is as follows:

Pre-RP: October 13-16
That is, from today until Thursday. It'll be raining steadily throughout the week. Just RP around, have fun, chat about. This is just a call to RP, and nothing particularly formal.

The TP: October 17-19
The hurricane will strike. The official plot will start up at Friday, 4 PM PST/7 PM EST. Be there if you can! But if you can't, that's no big deal--The hurricane will be going on for the entire weekend.

The hurricane will pass over late Sunday or early Monday. And that's the gist of it! You can see the original plan for the hurricane in greater detail right here.

Questions, comments, suggestions? Feel free to ask!

current mood: excited

2:13 am - Tentative Return of BudehucMUCK server

kartia
The Budehuc MUCK web server and MUCK server has been revived. I'm still going to run tests and upgrades on it over the next day so it may be off-and-on, but it should stabilize over the week.

You can return to the server at telnet://budehuc.mine.nu:7999.

7:17 pm - And now I'm just screwing with your minds.

kielisyl
Ah? So, the general consensus, I'm thinking, is to push this all back a week so that the game'll be up (and the forums, too) for the entire duration of the plot? ^^;;; Might as well! Okay, then. Um. Let's push this back until the following dates:

Pre-RP: October 12-16th (A week from tommorow, basicly)
Hurricane: 17-19

... Is that okay? ^^; I'm terribly sorry to fuss with people like this, to proclaim one thing and change it just as suddenly, but I'm not getting too much input on this. ;_;

3:51 pm - TP News!

kielisyl
Doo do dooo!

This Friday, October the 10th, will be the official start of the BudehucMUCK Hurricane TP. It will run from Friday until Sunday. You're pretty much free to RP whatever you'd like. Just toss your ideas around! From now until Friday, feel free to RP around. The weather report of the day will be posted in the MOTD soon.

I'd like to start the plot on Friday at 4 PM PST/7 PM EST, if that's okay with everyone. Attendance is not mandatory, but it'll make everything infinitely easier for everyone. It'll also be a great time to sort through your ideas, talk with other people, etc. etc. And if you can't make that time, please post that here, so we can change it!

Of course, there are some complications to keep in mind. The actual server/forum/webpage is down until October 11th, the 2nd day of the TP. If the forums -aren't- up by then, we'll be using LJ to post our logs/ideas/general news reports. Post whatever you'd like, as much as you'd like! Keep us all up to date! And if the forums are up by then, spam them as well/instead. We'll keep you updated on the status of the actual game and server.

Until then, the game will be at lacus.myftp.org, Port 7999. We'll return to the original game once it's up, but in the meantime? This temp game should have everything you need. If you need a character recreated for the week, please e-mail me at DominiaSol@hotmail.com and I'll set you up.

Wow, I'm incoherant today. The gist of this message: Temporary server--Use it! RP this week in the rain. Plot on Friday at 4 PM PST, if that's cool. Hurricane next weekend.

And most importantly, have fun!

current mood: totally incoherant

kartia
Budehuc MUCK TEMPORARY SERVER:

SPREAD THE WORD.

It'll be here at least until October 10. Also, if your character was created between August 25th and TODAY you will be unable to log in! This MUCK uses an older database.

1:27 pm - Plot Suggestion!

kielisyl
I hope you've all heard of the Hurricane TP Idea! And if you haven't, um, read up. >_>;

I'd just like to suggest date for it. What does everyone think of this schedule?

Pre-RPing: October 5th-9th
This would be for preparational purposes only. Basically, it's rainy. A little windy. Progressively more stormy. Nothing serious, though, and nothing that will get in the way of anyone's daily lives. This is basically just a call for RP, to get people together and RPing before the big plot. No set times or dates, of course, just have fun, drop by when you can, complain about the rain and drink a lot of hot chocolate. Or something.

Hurricane TP: October 10th-12
The hurricane itself! The storm will start up on Friday the 10th, be at its worst on the 11th and 12th, and tone down late on the 12th. It will be considered over on Monday the 13th. This will basically be the fun stuff. It's an awful lot of stuff packed in a very little amount of time, I'm well aware, so you might want to use the weeks before this to get some ideas going. It's assumed that the hurricane will isolate everyone into groups, which will make RP quicker and easier (since there shouldn't be a dozen people in one room), but it's still only three days. I don't think storms rationally last that long IRL, but I assume we want more than a day to RP all this.

It's still a lot, so it'd probably help if people posted a lot of updates to keep us all knowledgeable about what's going on. I'm sure people will be diving into the storm in makeshift rescue parties and whatnot anyway. Come up with your own ideas! Be creative! And for the love of all things good, share them!

Afterwards...
I'm sure it'll be a mess. No set times or dates for these--Post-storm RP and rebuilding is inevitable. Have fun with it!

I've probably gotten the idea through by now, but during the storm itself, we're going to be busy little beavers. The MOTD will be updated regularly (which you can see by typing motd on the game) with the current weather report and a running talley of any major damages to the manor and castle grounds. Hopefully you'll all be keeping us up to date on what your characters are going through, too. ^^

Anyway, this gives us one week off until the plot starts. I know this is a bit sudden, though. If anyone would like us to push this plot back a week, please say so and we'll push the pre-RP back to the 12th-16th and the hurricane from the 17th-19th.

4:38 pm - Probably a really dumb question, but anyway...

karthur
I've noticed there are "sleeping quarters" on the ship (as I was stuck in one yesterday with no exit). Are these assigned to specific characters or are they sort of a free-for all to use? I couldn't really tell by the description of the one I sort of wandered into.

Thanks for any info!

I added more manga scans today. You can find them here:

10:55 am - The Dance

karthur
I have a sizable collection of Medieval/Celtic music. Would you like me to upload some of it to Karthurville.com for y'all to use for the dance? Folks can download it as its "played" for a little multimedia RP.

Just let me know.

12:02 am - The Weather is Here, I Wish You Were Beautiful...

karthur
One RP we could do that wouldn't be too time intensive would be a weather-change RP. Since the castle is on a lake, perhaps a large thunderstorm hits that has everyone 'battening down the hatches' and preparing for some serious lower-level flooding.

The only strange thing this would require a wizard-character online to spoof the intensity of the storm across the game. Whatcha think?

8:53 pm - I might be missing this week, but!

kielisyl
I might be missing this week, but that doesn't mean that I can't plan RPing!

So~! We need to plan the dance! I didn't want to really put this up on the boards quite yet, since it'd be nice to discuss what would be a good time here and just post the final date on the boards.

For those of you just joining us, we had this idea for a scene that was originally going to be the grand finale of the first TP of the game--A cute little festival honoring the Flame Champion and whatnot. (The logs are here if you want to look at the insanity!) We were going to end the festival with a big ballroom danceish thing, and I quite honestly don't remember where we were going to do it. But, er, yes. >_>; It never got done, since everyone was super busy around the middle of May, and we decided that it needed to be its own little event anyway.

There's not much to the idea--Just a cute little dance. It's an excuse to ask people out beforehand, or to just show up and hurl yourself at your victim of choice. It shall be cute, silly, fun and likely completely freaking crazy. Which is the best sort of thing!

So, when's a good time for all of you? I imagine that late Fridays or mid/late Saturdays are the best for everyone, but goodness knows that I don't know your schedules. So! What'd be a lovely time for all of you?

Just to get the ball rolling, I'm available every day from about 5 MST (7 PM Eastern) onwards, and I'm on pretty much all day on Saturday and Sunday. Though I can come on at just about any time if it's planned beforehand.

current mood: giddy

7:57 am - Maaaaaybe?

kielisyl
Yeah, I know things have been really slow and quiet lately. Whine! ;_; But we've all been very busy, I imagine, or at least very distracted. I know my finals are coming up next week, and I need to study until my brain crumbles away piece by piece, but in the meantime, let's plan something!

Is anyone up for a completely mindless, silly, Improv Play sorta RP? There's a decent example here, and an entire post about it on here.

We can just do whatever we can with whoever shows up. 3 PM EST would be a grand time for me, since that's 12 PM PST. >_> No other planning--Whoever shows up can join in. Everyone who drops by later is more than free to hop in. ^^ I'm certain that we are all on crack enough to find ways to work people into the play itself if people who show up late don't want to just be spectators. So!

This is a terribly incoherant pose. Ouch. I guess the point is, show up Sunday and we'll do stuff. I'll try to be on all day, myself. And even if not enough people show up for an Improv, we'll RP. Something will happen. >_>

4:13 pm - WHO DO U THINK LIKES IT UP THE MORE?

kartia
im sorry if anyone gets offended by this please dont hate me but if you do that's ok because everyonehate me anywway so just go ahead

do u all think that sasarai or luc?

sorry if you all get angry i'm trying my best to be good really but I'm suffering so hard lately high school life is way too tough and i am hurting


Okay. Enough of that, here's the real reason why I wanted to post:

We're probably going to move the Garden Party and the Ballroom Dance into a separate Tiny Plot that can be done during another weekend, because right now everyone's schedules are all mixed up. I've suggested a number of weekends, but many people are sort of so-so about them, so consider it on hold for this moment.

More details on the following thread:

http://budehuc.mine.nu/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12

By the way, if you haven't joined the forum already, please do it. And tell all of your BudehucMUCK friends to join it too.

Bye for now,

current mood: SAD and ANGSTY boo hoo hoo

5:45 pm - Possible Scheduling Solution?

kielisyl
It's a really bad solution, though!

This doesn't apply to everyone, obviously, but it seems like, out of everyone, most of you are okay with Thursday nights. Er. I think. We'd have to be efficient about it (no scene pausing, and quick poses and a quick scene), but how is Thursday afternoon/evening for everyone for the cooking contest? Maybe 7 PM EST onwards would be okay? Or earlier? I'll be off and on variously, though, so I'd be leaving it in the hands of you nice people to have fun and keep things on track.

For the dance and everything, this weekend sucks because everyone's busy/going to cons/so on. x_x; So I guess we could drag this out another week, simply because this is finals week for a lot of people, and just a bad time in general for time-strict TPs. That way, if the cooking contest does pause, we can try to continue it this weekend with whomever can come. And then there can be one final week of festivities (I don't think anyone's RPing huge lots of independent RP about it anyway) and we can have the dance. Poof. One entire weekend dediated to it.

Does that work? It's kind of a shoddy, maybe-kinda sort of idea, but if Thursday works, throw out a good time, we'll apply to it, and it will be done. It'll just take some player initiative, since I wont be able to be there, and I don't know when Mel will be able to hop on, if at all.

Curse all your variously evil schedules! I can't wait for summer break. x_x;

10:36 am - RP RP RP!

kielisyl
Oooookay, everyone!

We have to do the cooking minigame and the dance. It'd be nice to finish the Talent Show, but we can always back-RP that later. One thing at a time. o_o

When can everyone sign on and RP this week? Before I decide whether we should extend the Festival for a week (or even two), I have to know when we can get everyone on or not. So list those times!

For the record, I can sign on:
Monday: 7 PM PST Onwards (That's 10 EST--An awful time)
Tuesday/Thursday/Friday: 4 PM PST Onwards (That's 7 EST--Also not so hot)
And Wednesdays not at all.
Saturday/Sunday, though, I can sign on pretty much any time at all. Literally. >_>;

Of course, this is assuming I don't need dinner or homework time, when both are blatant lies. But I can certainly make time for everything if we plan enough. So! Let's see what's plausible!

current mood: organized

11:24 pm - Suckety suck sucktacular

kielisyl
Okay. So. Fudge.

Our fantabulous Viki can't make it to the dance, because her employers are evil demon whores who decide that, suddenly, they need people to work on days that they thought they were going to have free. >_> So she can't be on, at all, for all of the time that we had planned for the dance. (Unless, of course, everyone wanted to start at something obscene like 11 AM or noon EST, which would mean that us PSTers had to be on at 8 or 9 AM, which is.. Insane and probably too late to reschedule anything.)

But what to do?

For one thing, we haven't finished the Talent show, and not enough people were on to even start the cooking contest. We could always do the cooking contest tommorow, add another week to the festival, and put off the dance until next Saturday, and start it SUPER INSANELY EARLY.

Or we could stick to the plan, too. I really.. Um. I must admit, I am completey clueless. I have no idea in the world what to do.

Ideas? Suggestions?

Help. x_X;;;;;;;

10:11 pm - Whoosh!

kielisyl
I'm hardly awake right now (And at 10! The shame!) but this does need to be said. So!

This weekend was the Improv Contest and the Talent Show. Both had moderately low turnouts, and ended up incomplete. Woe! ;_; Still, the Talent show has been paused and shall be continued at a later date. Doesn't matter when! Just whenever everyone can come. ^^ We can even do it after the rest of the festival has concluded--Back-RPing things are easy enough to do. And goodness knows, the world can not let the world go without a Magic Show from Viki!

This weekend, May 7th and May 8th, are the final days of the festival. Please enjoy the week you have left! Fireworks are still going to happen. I swear it, dang it! Regardless, the 7th is for the Cooking contest, and the 8th is for the much anticipated dance. The dance will go on all day, nonstop, so don't worry about times--You can come in when you wish and leave when you want. It'll be darling. And likely traumatic.

In the meantime, here are logs:

The Improv Contest: Short and simple and silly, but also a very good example of how improv can work. I assume we still want to have Sunday Night Improv shows that will always be held, so people can always be guaranteed RP? Er. Yeah. I'll detail that more later, now that we're in business. I think a few of you have never heard of that idea before. Still. Improv!
The Talent Show: Currently including only Belle. ... ... Good lord, that was fun. XD I wish that we had been able to see more, though! Thus, we need to continue this at the earliest possible moment.

I think that's it. Gotta plan a time to continue the Talent show, and gotta do the fireworks sometime. Also, must prepare for the utter terror and horror that will be the dance. Oh, how I am looking forward to that! ^_^ Such fun!

current mood: good
