GAME OF THRONE
SUMMARY

Study of the Book of Magic given to the team by the Wizard finally starts to bear fruit. Close to successfully interpreting it so the team can use its knowledge to find something to use in the fight against Chronoblivion, a few of the book's last defenses cause havoc on Legion World, unleashing magical effects like indoor flooding, inverted gravity (so characters have to walk on ceilings and avoid crashing furniture), characters having personal theme music play around them from nowhere, and a plague of frogs, among other things. The team must work together to break the last of the books' defenses to undo the magic effects and reveal its secrets.

The discoveries in the book will cause the team to start facing the final leg of their adventure, where they'll have to start on a quest across the galaxy and across different dimensions to find what they need to stop Chronoblivion.

THE NINTH GATE
SUMMARY

Several Legionnaires go undercover to infiltrate the Catastrophists, in an attempt to find out more of their plans, and see if their recent uptick in activity has ties to Chronoblivion. In the course of the mission, they'll have a chance to stop a potential terrorist attack meant to distract the Science Police away from Apokolips. If the Legionnaires succeed, the attack will be averted and they may find out vital information about the Catastrophist and Chronoblivion. If they fail, hundreds could die. Set during "Total Eclipso The Heart" and "The Gone-Away World."

THE GONE-AWAY WORLD
SUMMARY

While on the run, criminals discover a world where they can create anything by willing it into existence! They cannot directly affect people, nor can anything they create be taken off-world, but while they're there, they can live like kings. Will the Legion be able to combat crime on a world where everyone's wills define reality? Set during "The Ninth Gate" and "Total Eclipso The Heart."

TOTAL ECLIPSO THE HEART
SUMMARY

After enlisting the aid of a suicide cult, The Catastrophists, who want the multiverse to end, one of the last free heralds of Chronoblivion plans to awaken an ancient evil. The Legion has seen what the wrath of the Spectre can do, but the Spectre wasn't the only angel God sent to Earth to enact his will. Before the Spectre, he sent his Angel of Wrath to earth to punish the wicked and clean the world of vice and iniquity. After rebelling against God, this angel turned into a dark spirit and renamed itself Eclipso. Capable of possessing people like the Spectre, and capable of bringing out the inner evil inside people's souls, the team will have only one chance to prevent another avatar of God's wrath from getting free like the Spectre did. Because of Eclipso's corrosive influence, some Legionnaires may find themselves facing off against their corrupted teammates. Set during "The Gone-Away World" and "The Ninth Gate."

GAMEWIDE HMD MEME


This is the periodic Gamewide HMD meme!

The Gamewide HMD is optional. If you opt out of participating in the gamewide hmd, please at least have an hmd up in your journal.

This is not a love meme but it is okay to tell a player they're doing well. Please also keep this constructive and let them know what it is you like so they know to keep doing it.

If you ask for crit please also give some to other players. While we can't enforce this because some of it will be anon, the mod team would like to ask players to please try to give at least (3) other players crit.

Please keep crit polite and constructive.

Please escalate severe or repeat issues to the mods, if appropriate. If repeated attempts at constructive crit don't bear any fruit, there are rules for the many possible causes of this: bad player behavior, ICA=ICC, IC /=OOC, characters having to be IC, etc. If frustrating problems consistently happen without any improvement, it is possible they're verging on a rule break, so if that is the case, rather than letting things devolve into hostility, please escalate things and contact the mods to see what steps can be taken next.

This is the game's full Activity Check.


SPECIAL NOTICE

Due to the summer slowdown from vacations and moves and whatnot (which led to the mods not entirely being on the ball for some things), we've decided that this AC will be slightly more relaxed than usual. As such, we're requiring the following:


CURRENT PLAYERS

Current Players With No Warnings:

- (1) of the usual AC proofs. (Instead of 2 proofs, like we usually require.)

This cannot be made up with a CR credit. It has to be actual activity. That said, as long as you can provide the one proof, you'll also automatically qualify for the Activity Bonus without having to provide anything extra.

Current Players With Warnings:

- (2) of the usual AC proofs. (Instead of 3 proofs, like we usually require of those who have warnings).

This also cannot be made up with a CR credit. This also would qualify you for the Activity Bonus, alongside satisfying your warning conditions.


NEW PLAYERS

- Your AC will be the same as our usual policy, either a check-in or a check-in with proof of intro, based on when you apped in.


This lessened AC will only apply for this AC period and the game will go back to its usual AC requirements next Full AC.

While we're not using our normal AC requirements, please familiarize yourself with the AC Policy for the section about what counts as as a proof before commenting:

ACTIVITY CHECK POLICY


REMINDERS:
  • While we will replurk AC announcements, this game does not give "Character X has not replied to AC yet" warnings. It is the player's responsibility to check the OOC or game plurk for announcements and post on time.
  • Posting all your characters in one post is fine.
  • If you have a thread that is still ongoing, you may count all its current comments for this AC and mark off the point where they cut off with a note, then count any further comments on it towards next AC. (That means that if you had any logs continue after last AC cut off, those comments can count toward this one.)
  • If you cannot make AC, are not eligibile for an AC skip, and would not be eligible for a second warning, please still contact us in some way! You may not be eligible to skip AC or receive a new warning, but if you at least touch base with us about failing AC while the Activity Check is ongoing (instead of idling out), you'll have a reduced time to wait if you want to reapp back in later.
  • The activity period being checked runs from the start of the last AC period to yesterday, with today as the start of the new AC period. That means all proofs for this AC must be from between: 06/23/17 to 08/24/17


NOTE ABOUT PLOTS: Players that participated in network posts tied to recent plots can treat that as a plot participation credit (which only requires 3 comments from your characters instead of 5), as the IC planning and reactions were part of the plots. Network posts where this applies are labeled with a "plot: [name of the plot]" tag.

For Ongoing Characters that must make full AC with proofs this month, please fill out the following, and simply delete any sections or lines that aren't applicable:



For new characters that haven't gone through a FULL AC yet, and have apped in less than two weeks before AC, please fill out the following for a simple check-in. No activity proof is required.



For new characters that haven't gone through a FULL AC yet, and have apped in more than two weeks before AC, please fill out the following for a check-in, and provide a single proof of activity that you introed the character. It doesn't have to fit any particular length (it can even just be one comment into a thread).



You must respond to this ACTIVITY CHECK by: 8/31/17 at 11:59 pm EST.

UPCOMING PLOTS DISCUSSION

Hey there, Legionnaires!

Periodically, we like to check in with the playerbase to figure out what the upcoming plots are going to be and see if we need to rearrange the plots, add a new one to the calendar, or make any changes based on what the playerbase wants.

AN EYE FOR AN EYE
BASIC INFO

While the rest of the UP is reeling from techno-zombie infection, the Spectre attacks Takron Galtos, the UP's highest security prison, and starts killing inmates -- some of which are villains and criminals the Legionnaires themselves have put in jail. The Legionnaires that respond will have to decide where they stand on protecting the lives of the Spectre's villainous victims, and will have to figure out who among them can wield the Spear of Destiny against the Spectre. And those that have shed innocent blood themselves may find themselves in the Spectre's crosshairs.

RESISTANCE IS FUTILE
BASIC INFO

CW: This plot has a lot of body horror, just a heads up. If it's not your cup of tea, you can scroll down to the opt-out section for opt-out options.

Without Brainiac 5's knowledge or permission, the Coluan government has engineered a child from their copies of his genetic material, to further the Brainiac family line for Colugov's use. Brainiac 6, 2 years-old, mentally compromised by an emotion-inhibiting device, and bitter from the mistreatment of himself and other Brainiacs, has turned on his home planet Colu and banded together with his time-traveling grand-daughter, Brainiac 8 -- who has been impersonating Legionnaire Babbage since "his" return to the Legion -- to unleash his wrath on Colu and the United Planets. Though only a child, Brainiac 6 has all the destructive potential of his father, and thanks his emotional inhibitor, no capacity for empathy or remorse.

To enact their retribution on Colu and the UP by converting all UP citizens to creatures similar to what B6 sees as his father's greatest creation - the Roboticans - the Brainiacs have released a techno-organic nano-virus that converts organic life to mindless zombie robots that are part of a collective completely dedicated to consuming and converting every organic in the UP. After the UP is roboticized, the Brainiacs plan to start destroying and reconstructing the multiverse in their image.

The only beings immune to the nano-virus are the Roboticans, due to their zombie preparedness technological protections against viruses and outside interference. With Brainiac 5 captured and converted against his will into a living computer, the Legion must rely on the other big brains on the team for their tech and programming wizardry as the team goes zombie-hunting and helps the Roboticans stop the entire UP from getting assimilated.

LEGIONNAIRE LEGACIES SIGNUP

SIGNUP INFO

The mods will be accepting (6) Legionnaire Legacies to be posted during the next break between plots. Legionnaire Legacies are only available to players who have posted AC bonuses during the last Full Activity Check. New players who have never undergone a full check automatically qualify.

You may sign up in groups or pairs if you want to write a shared Legion Legacy together. However, if you write this as a joint story and are selected for this round, all the characters involved will not be eligible for an individual Legion Legacy in the future.

If there are more than 6 sign ups for this round, the qualifying 6 will be RNGed. All of those that were not selected are eligible to sign up for future rounds as long as they have made the Activity Bonus for that round.

If there are open slots at the sign up date but no one has claimed them, they will be made open to people who have done Legionnaire Legacies before as long as they have done the Activity Bonuses. However, this is only of there are open slots on 8/7/17 @ 11:59 PM EST.

Sign ups are open until: 8/8/17 @ 11:59 PM EST

We'll notify the RNGed players that they've been chosen by: 8/9/17


IF YOU'RE SELECTED

You must email the finished post to the mod email (thelegionmods@gmail.com) by: 8/31/17 @ 10 pm EST

If you do not send it in time, you'll miss out on this round and won't be eligible to sign up again, so make sure if you sign up that you have enough time to write one by the deadline. Please make sure that the post is fully html coded and ready to be posted as is. For the basics on the format, you can use past Legacies as an example.

The mods will make the banner image for the post but if you have an image you're dying to see used, you can select one. It must be at least 700px wide (height doesn't matter).

This is the mid-cycle AC Check-In! For this check-in you are not required to post activity proofs, this is just to register that you're still here.

Keep in mind that while we will post other AC reminders on the mod plurk, this game does not give "Character X has not replied to AC yet" warnings. It is your responsibility to check the OOC or game plurk for announcements and post on time. ACs will also be listed on the game/plot schedule if you need reminders of when they're planned.



You may post multiple characters in the same comment.

New players, since this is just a check in, please also respond.

You must respond to this check by: 08/2 at 11:59 pm EST

Apologies for AC being two days late, as such we've extended the check-in time limit by two days.

THE LEMURIAN ADVENTURE
BASIC INFO

Lemuria! Named for the distant relatives of sunken Atlantis, this beautiful city exists at the bottom of the oceans of a beautiful water world, its inhabitants only protected by a gorgeous transparent shield reinforced by force fields. It isn't officially a member of the United Planets. In fact, it's been courting the Affiliated Planets instead. However, when underworld meddling leads to the dome's structural integrity being compromised, followed by the revelation that the force fields aren't up to spec, the planetary government isn't too picky about who it asks for help.

The Legion must evacuate, halt further damage, and attempt repairs before the dome collapses completely, crushing them, and the people they're trying to protect, under billions of gallons of water.

BODIES FOR RENT
BASIC INFO

As the Legion has both the most advanced defenses and scientific devices in the galaxy aboard their headquarters, the PR branch of Brande's organization has talked them into allowing a super-science fair, saving valuable Coluan tax dollars in the inevitable explosion. One promising young genius has taken telepathic enhancement technology and moved it to a whole new level, creating a device he claims will hold someone's mind in the case that their body dies, to move it into a suitable donor after the fact! However, a slight miscalculation on his part causes the mind-saving field to fluctuate wildly, snatching the minds of all present and planting them in new, totally random bodies!

This will take time to counteract, but a Legionnaire's work is never done, forcing them to do their duties with bodies and powers that are totally alien to them!


HOW WILL THIS WORK?:

Your characters have had their minds swapped with another character’s! They’ll be in a brand new body. This extends to machine intelligences, with humans who get swapped with an AI having to adjust to their new framework of reality. (DC has done some wild stuff with humans and robots in the past).

Their powers will not transfer over.

It is possible for people to end up simply trading, or getting random bodies. For example, if Master Chief, Kid Quantum, Reaper, and Kubo showed up, it's entirely possible for Reaper to end up with Master Chief, even if Kubo ends up in his body.

This will take some time to be fixed, but characters can be returned back to their normal bodies at any point with a handwave of 'They volunteered for an early attempt to fix it'.

Please direct signups, questions, concerns, plotting and other issues to the comments below.

This event will run until 7/22/17

THE MIND SLAYER
BASIC INFO

Danger! A psychic assassin has been hired to target the Legion of Super Heroes! Using mental techniques forbidden by UP law and taboo on Titan, they've linked the minds of many of the Legionnaires into a psychic daisychain. Hiding in their memories, the assassin seeks to find an opportune moment to kill one of them by aggravating one of their near-death experiences into either a fatal heart attack or total traumatic mental shutdown. With their minds linked, however, if one of them shuts down, they'll drag everyone with them. Teams of Legionnaires must explore one another's memories, racing against time before the mind slayer causes a deadly chain reaction.
