June Activity Check  
ACTIVITY CHECK

It's activity check time! In order to pass activity check, you need twenty comments across a maximum of four threads during this month. You also need to have posted to this month's HMD, so if you haven't done that, go ahead and do that now! If you wish to take a strike, you have to reply; anyone who doesn't reply at all will be put on the warned list and, if they don't reply to that, then be swept. Anyone currently on an officially posted hiatus is exempt from replying.

Additionally, some people will need to report their exposure effects. If you apped in during the most recent application cycle or presented us with an exposure effect last activity check, you do not have to do this. That's next month for you guys. And, of course, if your character's beacon is on, they're safe for a few months. To let us know about this, it has been included on the activity check form. If it's not relevant to you this month, you do not have to fill this section out.

You have until 11:59PM EST on May 29 to reply to this; after this, a warned list will go up and anyone who is on that list will have until the end of the month to reply to that with either activity or a request for a strike.

The following characters have outstanding strikes:
Hugo Vasquez ([personal profile] 24karat) - must pass June AC
Dorian Pavus ([personal profile] whiteknightnecromancer) - must pass June AC
Harley Quinn ([personal profile] loveismadness) - must pass June AC
Death the Kid ([personal profile] equal_shots) - must pass June AC
Mary Watson ([personal profile] agravating) - must pass June AC

To fill out your activity check, just fill out this form and reply to this post:

Event: Noisy White; End  
NOISY WHITE
As the night of day 251 bleeds into the morning of day 252, the static-covered shadows leave--and in this case, they slip through walls and doors like spirits. It may be difficult to tell where they're going exactly, but working together, it's clear they're all headed to the industrial zone. Sometime after that, everyone who isn't already asleep passes out.

Everyone is awoken with the sharp sting of an injection in one of their limbs and the inability to move or even open their eyes for fifteen minutes. After fifteen minutes pass, everyone is back to normal, although anyone who used the eye application during the event, even for things unrelated to the event, has an eye symbol carved somewhere on their body. This will remain even through death until further notice.

Additionally, everyone will find the following message in their inbox from a sender whose username is blanked out with static: Observation of residents complete. Please await results.

[network] @magenta2; video - day 251 [open]  
[There's a vague, jittery mess of video before the feed steadies in a sudden jolt--presumably being set down on some surface, from the look of it. Halfway in frame is a shadow cast across a wall: not particularly remarkable, until a more distinctive Magenta-shaped shadow shuffles into frame beside it, though the man himself remains off-camera.]

Made a friend, I think.

[The unknown shadow doesn't move or acknowledge that it's being acknowledged.]

Doesn't seem especially--especially unfriendly, really? Hasn't hurt me so far. I have a headache, but I always have a headache. He just let himself right in behind me. Does anyone know him? Or her, I reckon. They seem like they want to get real close and cozy with me. Maybe they're cold? I would be cold, too, if I were like this.

[A pause. Magenta appears to adjust his hat.]

I'm namin' 'em Mickey. Any objections to that?

[network] @whatisthis; day 251 [unfiltered]  
[ Castiel's message begins as almost a solid block of static before he manages to orient his tablet's camera in a more useful direction, thanks to the number of shadowy figures around him and the now constant distortion and artifacting that now follows his face whenever he tries to record himself. His voice, at least, comes across as clear as anything. ]

In light of recent events and revelations, there's something important I want to share with the rest of you.

[ He fumbles with the tablet for a moment, turning it so the camera is focused on a series of complex geometric symbols drawn in chalk on a nearby wall. ]

These are warding sigils. Some of them are meant to repel evil spirits. Others are for purifying ones that have been trapped against their will. Some have more esoteric purposes. I've been leaving them in the thresholds and near the windows of buildings as I pass through them. I think it might be a good idea for others to do the same, especially in areas where the ghosts are very active. We may be able to do something for them.

[ Though he doesn't sound terribly sure of himself, even as he says it. ]

Event: Noisy White; Part Two  
NOISY WHITE
Winter's post vanishes with the appearance of the prophet's eye symbol on the tablet. At the same time, some of the shadows that wander the town film over with static until they're only barely human-shaped. Their bodies pulse in time with unknown signals, and they begin moving, gathering around travelers. They pay special attention to those who have the prophet symbol on their person--even those who took steps to remove it. Unlike the other shadows, these can travel into buildings, though they cannot go through walls or doors.

As more of these things gather around, the travelers will begin to feel their effects. First is the dizziness, nosebleeds, and disorientation familiar to anomalies, but as more and more collect near them, the disorientation grows. They can feel the pulse that the static shadows flicker to--their hearts stutter in time to this pulsation.

The more static-covered shadows surround you, the more you forget you were ever anywhere except here--the more you forget you ever did anything else except wander the snowy, abandoned town.

Event: Noisy White; Part One  
NOISY WHITE
On the morning of day 251, the network crashes. It lasts for ten minutes, and when it returns, only text is available as a method of communication. Something red is flickering on the screen very rarely: not enough to be sure it's happening, but enough to confuse and disorient.

At least it looks like Winter is around again.

could anyone do me a favor and go check the hospital morgue to see if jades body is still there
because thats where the admin sent me a picture of when i asked
despite the fact that until lockdown just earlier she was scampering after my group looking ready to eat whoever she caught first
bonus points if you tell her the monster look doesnt suit her
but while im at it who else has gotten an anomaly that looks like somebody who ought to be dead in a morgue
i know at least one of you did back during the monster business about a week ago but what about when didnt each have a specialized companion following us around

also we found another garage at square hhi18
green on the geiger app
but we didnt get a chance to check it out on account of the above

[This is an incredibly embarrassing post to have to make, especially after the one he'd put out a few days earlier. Reading through those replies makes him want to curl up and hide from the world for people seeing what he'd been like straight out of the Army. The messages to his friends are a particular humiliation. But it is what it is and he has to deal with this now. Man up, Watson.]

I'd like to apologize to everyone for my attitude and behavior the last several days. My death price has ended and my memories have returned. I can't take back the things I said to any of you, but I'm really very sorry. I was in a bit of a bad place where I was set at.

For anyone who was asking me, I'm in the Entrance area with America, England, and Ginger.

I'm also sorry to report that the cause for Clint Barton's death was the Joker. He mortally wounded Clint, but I'm pretty sure Clint was able to escape the situation along with Harley Quinn. Clint was able to mortally wound the Joker, as well. I'm not sure where the Joker is right now, but please be on your absolute guard. He is well-armed and he'll have been healed up after his revival, even if he might still have severe MN Poisoning.

TEST DRIVE MEME

If you'd like to apply to Snowblind and would like to test the waters first or get a sample set up for your application, this meme is for you! We've even provided some prompts for you to use if you want (but feel free to make up your own). Here's how it works.
✭ Reply to this entry with a character you're considering apping into the game. You can include the name of your character and the fandom in your subject line.
✭ Comment around to others on the meme, whether you're in the game already or not.
✭ Now you have a sample ready for your application!
✭ So go reserve and apply when reservations and applications are open.
✭ Seriously, do it.


Network Prompts
ONE: TRIAL BY CANDLELIGHT
You wake up one morning to find that an app has downloaded itself to your tablet. It's titled CANDLE.EXE and has an icon to match. When you opening it, you're greeted with a dark screen that features a gently swaying candle flame. Above it reads:

LEAVE AN OFFERING?

If you hit "no", the candle snuffs out. Your tablet shuts itself off abruptly, before rebooting to reveal the app has vanished. If you hit "yes", the candle flame turns purple and the app closes, but doesn't disappear. You have the distinct feeling that small, indiscernible piece of yourself has gone missing...but there's nothing stopping you from opening the app and making another offering...again, and again, and again.

TWO: PAPER TRAIL
The last several days have been productive. You and many others have split up to explore a newly opened area of the town as quickly as possible. One night, as you're searching the place you've found, you make a unique discovery: a folded note that appears to have been written in blood. The paper is delicate parchment, but with careful fingers you're able to unfold it and read what appears to be some sort of haunting hymn that centers around the Prophet of Norfinbury. However...it cuts off abruptly, and the corner of the page is even numbered. You have a feeling there are other accompanying pages, but you can't find any scattered around the house. Maybe you should take it to the Network. It could be that someone else in the area has found another page.


Action Prompts
THREE: I CAN HEAR THE BELLS
All things considered, you and your traveling companion have been having a reasonably easy day. Even the building you've chosen to spend the night in is peaceful. But then, shortly after lockdown hits...it starts. The sound of churchbells chiming. At first, it's distant, but they seem to be ringing closer and closer to the outside of the building, clanging and clammering so that you feel as if there's an earthquake in your skull. It drives you crazy, or maybe it even hurts--so why can your companion sleep so easily? Don't they hear it too? Maybe you should wake them up so they can help...or suffer by your side.

FOUR: A POUND OF FLESH
You and your companion reach a building just in time for lockdown, and notice right off the bat that something isn't right. Namely, your eyes can't help but land on a bloody message scrawled along the far wall. It reads:

A POUND OF FLESH TO SAVE US

Beneath it, there's a single metal bowl on a small table. The table is covered in blood, as well as the bowl, but it's empty...for now. Surely, you aren't about to chop off a hand just to see if there's anything to this message other than general cultist insanity, but you can't knock the sense of foreboding that weighs down the place like a stone. For better or for worse, you're going to have to spend the night here, so the two of you may as well talk about what you've found. Maybe you'll be able to come up with some sort of theory about what could've happened here in the past.
