As of this post Rakuen is officially closed. You may continue to backtag as much as you like of course and finish your plots in your own time.

If you haven't already please let us know what memories, upgrades and messages your characters are leaving so we can add them to the final list.

We hope that you found the ending satisfying and once again would like to thank everyone who played in Rakuen in the year it was open. Especially to those who stuck with us to the end! You were all great and we are sure we will see you around. Hope you all had as much fun playing here as we did modding.

Go now our players out into the world. And may you all find Utopia.

On Friday remaining characters (So the Players) will wake up to a Yellow Star burning in the sky. Everyone suffers a penalty at 7am and all Players who are not also Prefects have a background headache all day. The shaking in the city has gotten worse overnight, and doesn't stop. There is still no power, the sky is dark and stormy and there is no longer any food.

At Midday The Yellow Wyrm of the Centre Appears in the city. It will only fight if challenged and it's movement makes the shaking worse, into small earthquakes that ripple through the city. When it arrives the doors slam shuts and Recette, the final staff member collapses and disappears. Any weapons taken from that tower disappear.

The shaking gets worse and the buildings seem to be crumbling. At 5pm all non prefect players disappear from the city leaving behind a a memory, upgrade and a message. Please see this post as to what happens then. The time capsule is here and the post disappearance IC thread is here.

There is then an hour of relative calm, only Prefect Players remain in now pretty much ruined city. Towers begin to hum, get louder and louder until final players fall.

If your character is disappearing on Friday please respond here with your characters name, the memory and upgrade they leave behind and their favorite place with their special message (you can link to the IC post or just describe it here)

There will be an IC post for the very final part of the ending that will go up later tonight when the game will officially close. Feel free to backtag as much as you like.

On Thursday characters will wake up to a Red Star burning in the sky. Suzaku Kururugi and Sora Himoto (OU) will hear a wailing that gets louder throughout the day. At 7am all remaining Weapons will suffer a ten minute penalty.

There is very little food left in the city and the power is out. The city is shaking and though it is not enough to knock characters off their feet it is definitely distracting. The buildings look like they are crumbling, even the trees and plants look like they are ready to die.

At midday the Red Phoenix of the South appears in the city and begins to make its way to the Conquest Campus tower. Once again it will fight anyone who get's in it's way. Unfortunately for the city whatever ensured it's safety against fires when this tower was open had ceased to function. So damage to buildings is possible. Once again multi-wielding rules do not apply during this battle. When the Phoenix reaches the tower the doors will slam shut, Day will scream in pain and disappear. Any weapons taken from this tower will disappear.

At 10pm All remaining Weapons will disappear from the city leaving behind a memory, upgrade and a message. Please see this post as to what happens then. The time capsule is here and the post disappearance IC thread is here. All Players who are not Prefects receive a penalty.

If your character is disappearing on Thursday please respond here with your characters name, the memory and upgrade they leave behind and their favorite place with their special message (you can link to the IC post or just describe it here)

Wednesday

Wednesday is just as dark as Tuesday with more rain, yet when characters look out of their windows they will see a Black star shining in the sky, Flynn Scifo, Yuri Lowell and Cirno will hear a wailing noise that gets louder throughout the day. At 7am all Weapons who are not prefects will recieve a ten minute penalty, when characters go down to breakfast they will notice there are no staff there and food is just leftovers from the day before. Mostly discard food as there were no discards to eat it.

The city is abandoned apart from the members of the schools and the shadows, who are still on every corner attacking any people they see.

At midday The Black Tortoise of the North appears in the city. It makes its way to the Island tower, it will only attack those that try to fight it. Ordinary rules of tower monster fights apply, so drawing more than one Weapon is alright. When it arrives in the tower the doors snap shut, Nanami falls and disappears leaving behind an Upgrade and Memory. Any weapons taken from the Island tower (it is up to you which tower the weapons your character swapped the broach for came from) disappear.

At 10pm there is an hour of shaking, all Weapons who are not Prefects disappear from the city, leaving behind a memory, upgrade and a message. Please see this post as to what happens then. The time capsule is here and the post disappearance IC thread is here. All remaining Weapons suffer a penalty.

If your character is disappearing on Wednesday please respond here with your characters name, the memory and upgrade they leave behind and their favorite place with their special message (you can link to the IC post or just describe it here)

The sky is still dark and heavy, thunder rumbles in the sky but it is mostly dry, the storm doesn't break. But the air is humid and heavy. Students wake to be told that classes have been cancelled, if they leave the campus' they will find that the town is rioting, they are at a real danger of being attacked by townspeople. Or at least shouted at. They seem to believe the students can stop whatever is coming, but don't seem to know themselves what that thing is.

At 10am all Weapons who are not prefects and not linked to anyone are given a ten minute penalty headache.

At midday things begin to get serious. Dunleavy Mallorough (the mayor), Dolorosa (the headmistress of Fortitude) and Santana Lopez (the head prefect of Conquest) scream in agony and disappear. Vanishing from the city.

Then out of the open towers come the shadows, they swarm the city and campuses though they will not enter any buildings. They will attack anyone they see but can be destroyed in one or two hits, they hiss at you taking the faces of you and your friends past and present. Saying things they know will hurt you.

In the evening the townspeople begin to leave, any student trying to get on the trains will be thrown off unceremoniously and any that do manage to stowaway will pass out as the train goes over the border of the city and wake up in their bed with an undead ring if they don't already have one.

At 9pm All Weapons who are not prefects nor linked to anyone disappear from the city. Please see this post as to what happens then. The time capsule is here and the post disappearance IC thread is here.

At 10pm All remaining non prefect Weapons receive a ten minute penalty.

If your character is disappearing on Tuesday please respond here with your characters name, the memory and upgrade they leave behind and their favorite place with their special message (you can link to the IC post or just describe it here)

At 6am all discards will be woken up with a ten minute penalty headache. Good morning! The sky is dark with clouds and it rains on and off all day, even if it is not too cold.

Anyone leaving the campus will find the townspeople are becoming impatient, they will shout at Players, telling them to fight. Or at Weapons telling them to make their Players fight. If you are really unlucky you may get grabbed by a towns-person and dragged into the battle arena, though they will stop if you make it clear you don't wish to fight.

Or perhaps you do wish to fight, Dunleavy advised it after all!

At 2pm all discards will suffer a thirty minute warning penalty and then vanish from the city. A memory and an upgrade will be found on their pillow. A further memory charm will be left in their favorite place in the city. The memory charm Dunleavy gave them.

On disappearing a character will appear in the grey room they found themselves in in the tutorial. Characters will know instinctively that this is their chance to leave a message, a time capsule if you will for future groups who may be brought into Rakuen. This can be a thought, a memory, a feeling, advice. Anything the character wishes. If you wish to write these out the post is here

Note that if you haven't yet found someone to vow to yet don't want your character to disappear at this point then vows can obviously be backdated.

After their time in the grey room disappeared characters will find themselves floating through the tutorial world, again it may be different for every character, a land of gems, a forest, a desert. You don't seem to have a body though and there is no one there.

Or is there? You can hear voices, whispers on the wind. And after a few moments you can begin to pick them up, and talk back. Even though characters can't see each other they will be able to communicate and after a while sense each others presence in this strange limbo world. The post for people to tag into if their characters disappear is here

At 8pm All non prefect Weapons who are not linked to anyone (so those linked to other Weapons are fine) will receive a ten minute penalty headache. At midnight the city shakes for half an hour and those Weapons receive another penalty.

As a quick question would people like it if a mod post was put up in the IC board each day for interactions or are you alright with just doing normal posts and mod posts going up for the larger things that will happen?

If your character is a discard and you do wish them to disappear please respond here with your characters name, the memory and upgrade they leave behind and their favorite place with their special message (you can link to the IC post or just describe it here)

On Sunday any character in a coma will either wake up or disappear. This is also a chance if you do not want to play through the ending for your character to simply vanish from Rakuen as if they were dropped. If you wish to do this please let us know by responding to this post, if you could leave a memory and an upgrade that would be great!

The Players for Round 19 are:

Conquest

Ein
Cirno
Suzaku Kururugi

Fortitude

Sora Himoto (AU)
Merlin
Nanami Asagi

You can use this post as a plotting post, to decide vows and any fights that may happen on Sunday (if characters heed Dunleavy's advice)

Notably any discards left in the city by 7pm will receive a 10 minute warning and then at midnight any discards remaining will receive a 30 minute warning.

Hello everyone,

So as you have probably noticed, it's very quiet around here. Far too quiet and it's probably time we accept the inevitable that we don't have enough people to continue the game, especially since we have no Player sign ups and the last apps were a few rounds ago.

It's been a good run, we've been open more than a year and we would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all our players past and present for making this game awesome. We hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as we did!

Don't worry though, we aren't planning on just letting the game fall into abandonment, we will be running a sort of end game. It wont be End Game the happy ending the characters had been hoping for but it will be an ending, fitting with the circular plot of Rakuen, which means that in a year or two if people want to start a new round of the game the premise is there but for these characters in this session it is over.

Our plan is to start the ending this Saturday (12th January) and have it run for two weeks (so a normal round) with the game officially ending on the 26th January.

This thread is for any questions and/or plotting you have, rest day has been extended until the 12th when the last round will start.

This does mean we do need players for this final round and anyone who wishes to sign up can do so in this post as well.

Thank you all once again,

Katy, Elle and Ru

Once again it is the end of the round!

Rest day will last from today until 5th January. You can continue to backtag as much as you wish and make posts set in the last round but starting now characters apped in during the past two weeks can arrive in Rakuen.

Just a reminder to make sure your posts are labeled clearly as to whether they are set on the Rest Day or in Round 18, as for obvious reasons new characters can only take part in Rest Day threads.

- As a reminder, for the rest day, no one is a Player or a Weapon, so you can go wherever you like in the town. You can also go and apply for jobs, which will earn you 5 raks per rest day. Jobs are available in most places, such as various shops, restaurants and the cinema. You will also get free entry or a discount to wherever you work! Remember to let us know on the job application post.

- RAKS. Here is how to work out how many Raks your character has by the end of this round.
New characters had twenty (20) raks to start with.

1. If your character taught or attended classes this week, they got one rak per day, not including the rest day. Add 6 raks. (Note that classes were probably disturbed on Thursday and Friday due to the Turtle battle)

2. Whatever your role (Player/Weapon) or outcome, you earn 3 raks per battle. Tally up the battles your character participated in, and multiply that by 3.

3. Players earn 5 raks for every Weapon they win or vow with, no matter whether they still own them by the end of the round. Count how many Weapons your character owned throughout the round, and multiply that by 5.

4. Did your Player character win the round? They get 10 raks.

5. Are you a Weapon belonging to a winning Player (see above)? You get 4 raks. For a list of all Round Winners look here

6. Did your characters buy anything during the round? Subtract the raks for that now.

7. At the end of the round, the dominant school gives 10 raks to every character. For this round I'm holding off announcing it since people have been busy due to Christmas and such. Please go and record any battles on the Battle records as quickly as you can!

8. Rest day job? Add 5 raks.

That's your rak total!

- Sign ups for next round are here and will be open until 2nd January, when the Players will be announced.

The current round has ended. All marks of ownership will fade and IC Saturday (29th December - 4th January) is a Free Day, there are no classes and everyone is equal. New characters will arrive by train.

On Sunday (5th - 8th January) the new round will be announced. This is the sign up for those who wish their characters to be potential players next round. All characters signed up will be put into the spreadsheet that randomly selects Players.

This sign up is for all current characters including those who have been accepted and will be entering the game on Saturday. Sign up begins today and closes on Wednesday 2nd January. Anyone accepted up until that date may also sign up. The Player list will be released Thursday 3rd January to allow for Planning before the next round starts.

You may sign up all your characters, including those who were players last round. The next round will be 5th - 18th January. In signing up you agree that you will be reasonably available during that time, and do not foresee any long hiatuses.

You may sign up all your characters in one post if you wish, please put their full name and school!

Rest day will last from today until 14th December. You can continue to backtag as much as you wish and make posts set in the last round but starting now characters apped in during the past two weeks can arrive in Rakuen.

Just a reminder to make sure your posts are labeled clearly as to whether they are set on the Rest Day or in Round 17, as for obvious reasons new characters can only take part in Rest Day threads.

- As a reminder, for the rest day, no one is a Player or a Weapon, so you can go wherever you like in the town. You can also go and apply for jobs, which will earn you 5 raks per rest day.

8. Rest day job? Add 5 raks.

That's your rak total!

- Sign ups for next round are here and will be open until 12th December, when the Players will be announced.

[personal profile] utopiamods
Hope everyone is having a fun round!

Just a reminder that IC Wednesday (OOC Monday) was the deadline for Players to start battling this week. If they have not fought by the end of Wednesday they will begin to lose twenty raks a day. (Unless they have already won the round by collecting six weapons)

Remember, we don't expect you to write out all or even any of your battles; you can handwave as many as you like! Just remember to record them in the battle records.

As far as we can see, the following characters will begin to be penalized on (IC) Thursday.

Conquest

America

Any one who fought on Sunday or Monday will have to fight by the end of IC Thursday to prevent being penalised.

If you are in the middle of planning a battle that will be fought ICly on Monday- Wednesday and haven't got round to deciding the winner to put on the Battle Records, please let us know here!

Also

This Saturday (8th December) the current round will end. All marks of ownership will fade and IC Saturday (8th - 14th December) is a Free Day, there are no classes and everyone is equal. New characters will arrive by train.

On Sunday (15th - 18th December) the new round will be announced. This is the sign up for those who wish their characters to be potential players next round. All characters signed up will be put into the spreadsheet that randomly selects Players.

Hello everyone,

It is once again time for AC!

To pass activity check you must have made one post or two comment threads of any size since the last Activity check (3rd- 10th November). To qualify for AC the post must be open (not locked or private to one other character)

Activity check will last until the 8th December, after which a list of those characters in danger of being removed will be put up. If you are on this list you will have until the 11th December to report your activity or talk to the mods about extenuating circumstances.

Characters who arrived in-game for Round 17 (so those whose arrival date was the 17th November) are exempt from activity check for this month, as are those on hiatus.

The following characters requested a second chance and therefore must provide double activity this month (two posts or four comment threads)

Cheshire Cat
Hikaru Hitachiin
Alex Furest
Nanami Asagi
Holy Empire of Britannia

Please reply using the following format.



You may check in all your characters with one post if you wish!

There's also a section added for non-battle plots, which is basically to be used for anything that isn't hitting people with sticks. You will notice it is a new plotting post as of last round, as the old one was getting long and unwieldy. Please track this new post to keep up to date with plotting!

Remember that ICly you character has to have battled by IC Wednesday to avoid a fine. Battles can be threaded out or handwaved as you like but please remember to record them in the Battle Records post either way!

Finally, here are the Players for Round Sixteen:

Rest day will last from 17th until 24th November. You can continue to backtag as much as you wish and make posts set in the last round but starting now characters apped in during the past two weeks can arrive in Rakuen.

Just a reminder to make sure your posts are labeled clearly as to whether they are set on the Rest Day or in Round 16, as for obvious reasons new characters can only take part in Rest Day threads.

- As a reminder, for the rest day, no one is a Player or a Weapon, so you can go wherever you like in the town. You can also go and apply for jobs, which will earn you 5 raks per rest day.

5. Are you a Weapon belonging to a winning Player (see above)? You get 4 raks. For a list of all Round Winners look here

6. Did your characters buy anything during the round? Subtract the raks for that now.

7. At the end of the round, the dominant school gives 10 raks to every character. This round was a draw! So sadly no one gets the extra 10 raks.

8. Rest day job? Add 5 raks.

That's your rak total!

- Sign ups for next round are here and will be open until 22nd November, when the Players will be announced.

- The battle of the tower is still ongoing!

I hope everyone has a great rest day week!
