    Index of evil organizations

    Operation Midnight Sun should be the main link and has the rest of the threads linked on the last post for the summary.

    Index of evil organizations

    They're the ones that burned Predator's Keep to the ground after kidnapping Red. Edit: Intelligent me, I banded 7/8 of the threads since they were all leading up to the main meat of the quest, so I updated the link under Accomplishments. I can't find the 8th thread, but if memory serves correctly it wasn't officially finished nor canonized (it was before the banning) since the others didn't pick it up. So prolly best to leave their count at 7 instead.

    You can add OXY. It's vaguely evil on purpose. Valucre's knock off Umbrella Corps and all that. I've been chatting with another user recently about them semi-taking it over and being active again, prolly sometime near Christmas. Their canon count is currently at 8.

      Shaweeet. I got way behind in posting tonight, but I only have class tomorrow and no work. I'm working on like, four threads at the same time right now and probably won't get them out until tomorrow. We're the only House that hasn't finished their establishment thread so I need to light a fire under my ass to get it done.

    The Valucre Photo Album

    I can't wait to meet my niece. I will never forget the first time I saw her. I was in trade school, and we were taking head count in the afternoon after trade and before dinner. All the jacketed leaders stand up front, and talking isn't allowed. My brother sent me a text with a picture of a beautiful newborn and it said, "This is your niece, Arianna." It touched me deeply, because my brother and I were not raised together (we're half siblings that share a father who was never really there for either of us) but we act like we've grown up together. That he would introduce that tiny little bundle to me. I started crying in the middle of headcount, and when we finished everyone was rushing over to me asking if I'm okay and I just screamed, "I'M AN AUNT!" ;-; With my brother being military and my sister-in-law and niece going back and forth to Korea, it just was never feasible to find time to visit and say hello and finally MEET them in person. We're hoping to change all that, soon! Now she's all grown up and still so beautiful. Today was report card day and she got all A's like the kickass I know her to be.

    Symposium Against Doom

    Faith cloaked her shoulders. She could feel it the moment she had entered, the unyielding Faith of Gaianism. It was an energy, and the Empath unconsciously fed upon it, reveling in the zeal and energy it gave her. Raveena had remained quiet and observant since her arrival and seating. She had been earlier than anticipated—Orionis, her Wyvern mount was a speedy beast if ever she knew one. Her briefcase sat by her feet, though her note cards remained close at hand. She listened intently to concerns—the sheer number of concern. There were faces and voices she recognized. The baton was passed, introductions exchanged, concerns placed at the head. Soon it was her turn, and she took the baton and mouthed a silent thank you before she stood and spoke loudly, clearly, “Good morning to you all. I am Lady Raveena, appointed regent of Hyperion City in the Terran East. I’ve been traveling for quite some time, taking notes so I can educate myself on national and international affairs. My current concern comes first from the Terran West with Yh’mi’s growing unrest. There’s talk of war, and Yh’mi’s destructive loci may cause more destruction than the environment can handle. I’m actively taking steps to be involved to suppress forces that may threaten to take over the Terran nation.” Smiling grimly, she took a seat and moved to pass the baton along before she paused, her brows furrowed. "If someone would please, whether now or at a better time, tell me more about these Body Snatchers. I've faced a similar epidemic before having moved to Terrenus permanently. Thank you." Infiltrators, a heinous magitech nightmare she hoped to never face again in her life. No matter how comforting one could take in faith, it did little to stave the dread of this conversation and what the nation faced in the future.

    General chat thread

    [ Wilted ] All my hard work paying off...only student in my World Civ class to make above a 100 on the in-class midterm (I'm so used to them being online). Which was mega stressful because we had to answer SUPER VAGUE questions, decipher cuneiform, and then write three two page essays, all in a 50 minute time span. And because you had to figure out wtf she was asking us to answer with the vague questions, hand-writing three, two page essays is like...frickin' difficult as hell. TO make matters worse, I was so convinced I had bombed this exam, because she made us take the midterm again. Second time it was just the essay questions. But she graded my original as a 100 and gave me extra bonus points on my second midterm. [ Wilted more ] =w= Getting back into this college thing after a two year hiatus has been trying on my sanity (plus working full time hours as a part timer, plus a second part time job?! Why am I doing this again?!). A 15 year old also sat next to me and tried hitting on me. When I kindly broke it to him that I was almost 15 years his senior and not interested, he was so embarrassed. I also need to brush up on biology again (which apparently I potentially take next semester) because all these teeny boppers were talking about zygotes and autosomal and recessive genes and me and the older woman next to me in my psychology class were staring like, "Oh God I haven't taken biology in thirteen plus years, I don't remember any of this shit." All in all, it's a good start to the week. Short shift today, get to enjoy my whole day off tomorrow and hopefully knock out more posts. Then it's back to 8+ shifts in a row...

    [A.N.T.] Main Thread 2: The Treaty of 597

    Raveena’s brows furrowed in her thoughts. She felt James’ annoyance, crawling along her skin—as feelings so often did to the Empath. She leaned away from the palm of her hand to sit upright again, as if stirring from a sleepy reverie. She listened and noted. The palm of her hand hovered over the table they sat at. A push of will—the equivalent to pushing a door open with minimal effort, opened a Gateway to Zero Space. She pulled a notepad and pen out from the small abyss that manifested, the same minute push of will closing its entrance once more. It was an unconscious effort, one she hoped didn’t terribly startle those around her. Her brows still furrowed thoughtfully as she leaned in and began to take notes. She detailed out notable relations between regents, rulers and allies--not based on outward appearances and exchanges, but on the feelings they emanated. Everyone was appraising situations and reacting to them accordingly. Raveena was detailing their initial reactions to study. When they'd take further action, she'd detail changes in their emotional responses. She went through and detailed known military forces, though the smaller, lesser known went last or were left unwritten. Cartography had not been a strong suit, despite her sad attempts at it, but she could remain details in her mind’s eye and noted the mega cities between here and Western Terrenus, rising cities, notable landscapes that would pose trouble. She nodded absently, thoughtfully at Chastity’s mention of preferred method of arrival, her elegant, spidery scrawl filling the lines up. James and Oscar Ships: Joscar? Jamescar? Alethea’s Airforce? – Remember to do the thing! Send word to Athyon as well. Kyrosian Genesar naval fleet. – See Rahab to schedule a meeting. The Aralim – Implement new standard Warp Gate for Kyros? Port Thea too? Thraece Concerns: Arable land - Super Important Starvation crisis Economic crisis Workforce diminished severely Medicine Devise a healthcare system Ensure dispersing of appropriate supplies Important appropriate crops for medicinal purposes Establish a local apothecary HQ in Thea Pirate threat: Thean consulate potential solution? Warp gate more troublesome Naval Enforcers for local coastal patrol? Nautical alliance, potentially? T.H.R.I.V.E.: Initiate Phase I She sighed a heavy sigh, devising plans to uphold her end of offering resources and personnel. It was a tight fit, but one she could make work. Her Terran regent was designing villages to branch from Hyperion, expanding down the mountain side and stretching into the borders of the forests around them. Her pregnancy would set her back from the usual zeal she faced situations with. Her pen paused, before setting down again, her current set of notes concluded. A child of immortal blood in a mortal woman’s body. It would be difficult to explain with Rowan’s current health situation. Her lips pressed to a thin line. Raveena didn’t care to ask for help. Knowing, however, that she was going to face a difficult year ahead, she’d have to take better notes, and be prepared to ask questions for the next summit she would attend locally two weeks from now.

    Some pretty good writing, eh? Also, because I've been so tight on time to post, I opted to save the rest of the floats for when Raveena presents land and titles for those who assisted in helping to build Hyperion. Mostly because the only ones left are yours, and the rest of my territories (and I'll be adding on a few more with my regents). I think I'll be doing it a little differently, and featuring hot spots (open threads that aren't getting a lot of activity for one reason or another) and feature a bunch of those for some advertising for people.

    A.N.T. Phase 2: The Treaty of 597

    Got it! I intended to have a warp gate installed with the consulate for ease of travel between continents, and I could not remember if UM was in that dimension as well, or not.

    Question! Taen, and by association UM is in the pocket dimension still, yes?

    Yeh, she didn't mention that at all. [ Shrugs ] She read my PMs, but didn't respond to them so I just took it as disinterest, and moved on.

    Books on the mind

    I am currently reading "the Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up: the Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing" by Marie Kondo, who is famous for her KonMari style of organizing. I was curious to apply it to my life, and so far so good. I purge my closet of a lot of clothes I simply don't wear, keeping clothes I do (the jist is to keep things that spark happiness and joy within you). Safe to say I kept a lot of things I didn't need to keep. The thing I like about it, is that it's not just a physical purge--but a mental and emotional one too. You start with the easiest categories and end with the hardest ones to gain momentum. I'm at a point in my life where my room is a place that is full of stuff. I am tired of stuff. I liked stuff when I was a kid. A lot of things I plan to donate. A lot of my Disney stuff is going to my god daughters, save a few precious things. I highly recommend it, if nothing else for the sake of doing it and simplifying your life.

    Checking in! Unfortunately my opponent never posted and hasn't been on Val in some time, which is disappointing since it was a catalyst to a bounty hunt we were planning for Rae and character building for Sabine for losing her match. C'est la vie, I will find something else for her to get into. I see the rest of you are still trooping along! I've been reading. @ethela penna I'm keeping tabs, but please poke me gently when you've concluded your match in case I get swept away by life again. @Twitterpated You as well, please!
