➣ The Event
At 0800 on TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14th, explosions will occur on the Millennium Falcon and the SW-0608. These explosions will completely destroy the ships. No part of either of them will be salvageable. Characters aboard the Eluvio and the other player ships will not hear the explosions, however if characters are by windows they might see them.

Approximately 15 minutes later, the power will go out across the entire fleet. This means that all ships (the Eluvio and the player ships) will lose power. The lights will go out, the life support systems will fail, the gravity generators will fail, and all automatic doors and lifts will shut down, just to name a few of the inconveniences that characters aboard the ships will fail. If characters are in rooms with automatic doors, they will be trapped there until either power can be restored or the doors can be manually forced open. It will also be dark! In many places, it will be pitch black, though places with windows will have at least some ambient light to see by.

In the beginning, the communication network will also be down! The characters' communicators may have their own internal power supply, but the network that connects them all will not work until auxiliary power is restored.

The Eluvio's crew will make getting life support and climate control restored across the entire fleet the priority. It will take them approximately one hour to do so. Once it has been, they will work on other systems.

By 1300, auxiliary power will be restored. This means that only the following systems will work: life support, climate control, the gravity generators, the water infiltration system, emergency lighting, the communication network, the food preservation system, and the waste management system. Nothing else will work.

With the navigation system offline, the fleet will be drifting through space on its momentum. Crews will not be able to steer the ships or adjust course. On SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 26th, the fleet will enter a star system and while passing by a planet, get pulled into synchronous orbit with it.

Further details about this planet and the plot scheduled to start March 1st will be forthcoming. For now, characters will have other concerns.

For the first five hours on February 14th, they will have no light, no gravity, no way to communicate with anyone not physically present in the room with them, and unless they're able to get the doors open, they will be trapped.

Once auxiliary power is restored, they will only have the basic necessities available to them. Lighting will be poor as only the emergency lights will be working. Without full power, systems will occasionally and temporarily break down!

It may not be immediately obvious to anyone, but something else besides Fek and Trilk came aboard at Oros and its intentions aren't benevolent.

➣ Player Notes
With the basic systems on the fritz, characters may encounter issues and inconveniences over the course of the next two weeks.

This means that there might be glitches in the communication network that lead to dropped connections or attempts to reach a character connecting with the wrong recipient. Maybe the gravity will go out in various parts of the ships for a short while. Maybe the lights will go out completely for an hour or two. Maybe a couple characters will get stuck somewhere and have to work together to get free (which could be a good opportunity to build new CR)!

Feel free to play around with these effects as much as you want. They can be as dire or comical as you'd like!

Toward the end of February, we will be providing detailed information and sign ups for the next plot.

Players who were chosen to participate in specific portions of this prelude to next month's event will be hearing from us individually with further information on what their roles are to be.

We would like to remind those players who are chosen for THE SINGLE SLOT ONLY WILL NEED TO KEEP THEIR PARTICIPATION SECRET!!

Will the ability to travel between ships in the fleet via a shuttle or personal vehicle also be compromised for the entire duration of these two weeks?

Some of us in the Rogue One cast were under the impression that the SW-0608 was docked with the U-Wing IN the hanger bay and have been living in both ships. So we were wondering if that means either we had it wrong and it couldn't be in the hanger, or if the ship was removed and brought back out? I can't seem to find anything on it in the FAQs about ship size and the hanger bay and was wondering if we can get it cleared up? I know a few of our characters have been living in it. I don't think any of us mind it getting blown up, but for RP reasons we'd like to get a clear image so we can recon or plan accordingly.

Thank you!

I had a feeling that was what might have been how they were picked. I'll let the others know. And thank you, I think that helps clear up all the questions we had!

Looking forward to the chaos. :D

A couple of questions:

- re: "they will be trapped there until either power can be restored or the doors can be manually forced open", will characters who know how to tamper with electronics/mechanics be able to tinker with the door panels/door locking mechanisms in order to open them, or is the locking mechanism entirely electronic and can't be disabled manually?

- the network is down, but what about rudimentary technology created by the characters? I'm thinking walkie talkies or maybe even small scale radio emitters/receivers, specifically.

Can people use maintenance crawlways and access shafts to bypass doors?

[personal profile] whatchoice 2017-02-14 12:19 am (UTC)(link)
this feels like the silliest question, but are there stairs (or access ladders) on the ship or will they be stuck on one floor before the lifts become operational?

[personal profile] bayarm 2017-02-25 07:30 am (UTC)(link)
me again, hello mods! i assume the answer is "no", but i'll ask regardless: some characters are working to set up a (probably nowhere near exhaustive) patrol of corridors to keep fellow passengers from getting hurt with the intention of intervening if they see someone getting attacked. is there anything patrolling passengers would notice/see/come across, are there any clues that they (or any characters investigating) might pick up that you can tell us about?

Okay, so now that I have worked some things out I can plot!

Eichi will be starting off at the rink with Victor, so I've planned some threads calming him down from the initial panic and getting him somewhere safe. But I am super open to other stuff with him! He has an illness that's basically like generic anime disease, so his heart gives him problems as well as his lungs, and all of this will be a huge stress on him. This means while he'll be trying to put on a strong face and joke about it like usual, he'll actually be panicking inside for a lot of this.

I'd love for people to run into him getting stuck in rooms, or just having trouble with his health in general. I think it would also be fun for someone to find him in more of a panic, where he thinks he's hidden away and is just running through his own song lyrics to himself... After he calms down a little bit, though, he'll be trying to move around with everyone else and generally getting into trouble. Probably. He wants to know what's going on!

Zelos was RNGed for one of the doubles groups, so my involvement with him will come after the 15th, which is when he and Colette will find their little surprise. We've planned to put up a log between just them so people can see what happens, and then Zelos will be posting about the incident once we've closed that up/or it gets to be the 16th. The post will be on the 16th ICly, and Colette will be responding to it as well so you can get either or both of them in the replies! It will share the info about what happened, and from some plurk talking I believe they're the first ones of the doubles to find something.

After that, though, he'll definitely be on high alert and more involved. As much as he likes to joke away serious things, this is a little too much to joke about, so he won't be as tacky as usual in his announcement or after the fact. So it's a great time to get CR with him, since usually his walls are up a lot more but this time he'll be out in full force trying to figure out what's going on!

I'm up for silly things too, like no gravity joking around, him flirting with girls is always an option, and getting stuck in rooms with people. He'll probably show off some magic at some point to get people unstuck, too, so if you need a rescue he's here!

I am open to all things, so hit me up here, on discord at zlos#3826, or at [plurk.com profile] nipponpon!

Very minor plotting comment! The potential for the network to be on the fritz sounds like a beautiful opportunity to start CR that wouldn't otherwise interact, so with that in mind: please let me know if you would like an inbox misfire from Ax! I'll be randomly hitting people up anyway but it would be more productive if I know who'd already be receptive to such a thing lol.

Also feel free to use this comment if you want to organize something similar with other people idk

minor plotty... thing?

[personal profile] whatchoice 2017-02-13 06:34 pm (UTC)(link)
just as an FYI wanda's power can restore gravity (in small spaces so not the whole ship because she might die) but if you don't want to fuss around with zero gravity or want to have your character abruptly fall to the floor when it's suddenly back in the room they're in, y'all are welcome to handwave a pretty girl full of magic giving the finger to physics because that is what she will be doing for five hours :)
juniberries: (helmet off)

kind of a plot??

[personal profile] juniberries 2017-02-13 06:41 pm (UTC)(link)
So eventually Allura, who will be stuck on the Castle of Lions, will likely try to get some means of a space walk...thing going. She will likely bug her paladins to help her set up rope systems to help get from the Castle to the Eluvio and back again, but this is also an open...plot?? I guess? if anyone wants to try floating around in space to get to different space vessels in the fleet.

If anyone else has non-technology reliant system of getting from one space vessel to the other, I am also game to discuss it! That goes for characters who have teleportation powers, telekinesis (maybe??) or abilities that allow them to fly in space without need for spacecraft.

offering up Clary's services here during the event! Clary has runes on her body for seeing in the dark, so if anyone wants to get lost and found by her that's up for grabs!

in addition to that, if anyone wants to get any accidental texts from her? i'll probably have her reach out to people in general that she's met this week to check on them, so open for some of those messages getting mixed around! that would be around the 15th onward. on the 14th she'll spend most of that day helping Wash save kittens!
juniberries: (elated!!)

heck yeah! it's not like clary's ex-boyfriend brother is super grumpy too.... she can handle the grumpy honestly :)

[personal profile] glitterpants 2017-02-13 08:34 pm (UTC)(link)
i don't know clary's canon but we haven't tagged yet so this should happen...
accidental texting will probably be the best route since he isn't leaving his quarters until the 18th! my inbox is open anytime!

if you choose to message karamatsu after the 18th, it'll be after he discovers a maimed up body belonging to a passenger s-so...
he will more than likely talk about it to her if you want to start off things Intense...
angele: DNT. (205. ❚)

[personal profile] angele 2017-02-13 08:50 pm (UTC)(link)
why not start intense that's the best way to make friends right???

but really she'll be so sympathetic to him too! so it could really work out!
glitterpants: (( 51 karamatsu girl ))

[personal profile] glitterpants 2017-02-13 09:35 pm (UTC)(link)
THAT'S GREAT. nobody sympathizes with him, so... he'll be blessed.
it can happen maybe right after he messages wash about finding it.. and what to do about it so he'll calm down a little..

Pidge will be available to help with repairs or get into weightless shenanigans! Also if you want to get some crossed wires for missed communications or anything like that, please let me know.

I really want to get some new CR going with this even so on that note is there anyone NOT in my cast who wants to maybe get stuck with Pidge during the event? Castmates are welcome, of course but I really want to branch my CR out.

Sadly Jim's gonna be stuck on the Enterprise for the two whole weeks, BUT if anyone would like a random text/call from him as he tries to get in touch with anyone on the Eluvio to figure out the state of things on the main ship, poke me here! I'll make sure to make it happen.
For the record I am also super alright with him getting random texts from other people! \o/

Since we're doing plotty things here! Nekomaru's mostly good for running around, being loud and using brute force. Oh, and he should have a small flashlight on him too. He should be able to get some of the stuck doors open, just with a bit of effort. Initially he'll be in the training facility, but he'll be looking throughout the ship for people in need of help (and to check on his castmates) during the blackout.

I'm fully up for shenanigans with him of the weightless, stuck in a room and/or misfiring varieties!
