Hi I'm Gayle, just popping in to say hey and introduce my Gwaine BBC Merlin from s3 into about s4 (the version that exists in my head where he doesn't get made to catch the idiot ball all. the. time.).

I love him dearly but he's a giant troll, a massive tart and he will try and charm the hell out of anyone he meets. Sorry about that in advance, the charm it doesn't turn off. Ever. Believe me I've tried.

I haven't played him or indeed RP'd at all in about 5 years, what even is linear time, seriously. So apologies if I'm a little slow or his voice is a bit inconsistent to begin with.

Edit: Forgot to add that I'm in the U.K, so time difference shenanigans could be a thing.

Samhain, All-Hallow's Eve, the day before Half Price Candy Day (Autumn Edition)--Halloween! Last year, those of you who were here might remember Schön threw a shindig, and it's safe to say I plan to do so again.

As last year, I'll put up a post a few days beforehand, so people can filter in at their own pace. There is NO set end for this party, stay as long as you like, play as long as you like, and since I understand the real world comes with its own holiday pressures, "fashionably late" could be considered a polite euphemism for "mid-November." Tag in when you can, and someone will play with you. It's a costume party, so have your character come in costume (or avail themselves of the costumes provided by your so-generous host).

Also like last year (since it seemed to work well), I'll be setting the scene in general terms in the post itself, and then creating several top-level comments to serve as different areas of the party. The entry hall, dance floor, bonfire, and back halls were all popular last year, and it's safe to assume they'll be making a comeback. If there's something you think a Halloween party really needs, tag in here with a comment so I can be sure to include it.

So, who's interested in a Samhain Ball? Show of hands.

Okay, so this might be nothing more than the putrid renderings of two sleep-deprived weirdos, but: who's up for a Mother's Day LOL? No babies involved but lots of pregnancy symptoms. Bloating, aches and pains, hormonal shifts, morning sickness, cravings, whatever you want to inflict on your poor characters who probably totally deserve it. The symptoms would only last a day or two.

So, what say we? Should I post it up Sunday night to let us blow off steam from the inevitable annoyances of actual Mother's Day? Or should I go sit in the corner and think about what I've done?

Hello, poppets!

Today I'd like to introduce you to a handy little feature DW communities have: the "member posts" list. It's basically the reading page for the community, with every single member on that list. On [community profile] nexus_sages it's the third tab from the left, after "recent entries" and "archives". The url is http://nexus-sages.dreamwidth.org/read. So this is great if you want to check out what's going on outside of the main community.

But this does mean your posts might end up in front of an unexpected and unsuspecting audience.

I don't police member journals and have very little to do with them, but I would caution you to put anything NSFW behind a cut.

Hello, my poppets! Lately, I've been getting some questions about the game and how it works from people who're unfamiliar with journal RP. So I've put together this FAQ to try and help them sort things out. I'm sure I've missed things, so please read it and let me know if anything's unclear or if there's something you'd add. Thanks!
Edit: new language in dark red to make it easier to find.

Hi it's Trish the player behind such characters such as Tyrion Lannister [personal profile] bigimpin, Swindle [personal profile] dealsnotwar, and The Eighth Doctor [personal profile] shoesthatfit. I'm starting to feel my rp mojo again, so I've made my way back to Nexus land with one Niko Bellic from Grand Theft Auto IV. :) I'm currently playing him post game where he's given up his life of crime somewhat to work for his cousin Roman's cab company. And he is currently living inside of Broker in Liberty City.

I'll likely be bringing some other folks around but I want to get myself settled before that happens. :) And my plurk is notfactual if anyone wants to add me.

Living up to the character's hype, [personal profile] mybadhabit found all 24 eggs in this year's egg hunt! Congrats to them!

For anyone who's curious what they looked like, look within. )

So I thought I would introduce myself to everyone. A good RP'ing cohort of mine found this place, and I have to say that I am very happy to be here. Already, after one post with Hunter, I have plot! It is so exciting.

I'm Sabrina. Or Brin. And I have been roleplaying for a couple of years. Started on livejournal, but migrated with the great switch. I also have a couple of Journals that people might have seen around.

And in case you haven't...
It is behind the magical cut )

So of course if you ever want to RP with me, just give me a nudge! Always happy to find new people to interact with!

I've been posting a few toons in the main comm for a few days so it's occurred to me that I should probably say hi. :) I'm Ael, I have lots of characters, so if you see any of these folks around, that's me. I've played at [community profile] multiverse_nexus (and its precursor on Livejournal) for years so I'm very familiar with this type of RP, and it's good to see a more active community with new people to interact with. :D

If you ever want to play with a specific one of my characters, please just let me know and we'll work something out.

There's been some interest in holding a spring market or festival, so I said, "why not both?" It'll be posted this weekend (if you've got a preference for what day, let me know, I'm open to suggestions). I know this weekend is Easter which means some of you may have family obligations, so we're prepared for people to trickle in throughout the week. I'm thinking it'll be part state fair, part craft fair, part ren faire.

If you've got a character who'd like to join in, consider this fair (ha!) warning to be prepared. You don't need permission or anything, just go ahead and post when the time comes. But a comment mentioning you'll be taking part would be nice. :)

Rumor has it there will be dragon rides.

Edit: Due to a player having connection issues due to an ice storm, this event is being moved to the weekend of the second. This is not a drill. This is not an April Fools prank.
