In a surprise development Cally Schneider (19) was arrested today at Chatsworth House. It is believed that Ms Schneider lowered the House's transmat shield in order to allow her brother, Richard Schneider (22) access to the House so he could kidnap Rafye Crawford (22) who was staying there over night. Ms Crawford, a Genci, is believed to be pregnant by at least two and maybe more fathers and is carrying at least 4 babies, but that's Gencis for you.

Clive Wilson (24) famous author, was rushed to hospital today. Doctors refused to comment on his condition.

RolePlaying Discussions / Coming soon; dungeon crawl.
« on: September 24, 2010, 06:44:06 pm »
To finish up Flames of Oblivion I'm planning on running a dungeon crawl where a group of intrepid heroes/space marines teleport aboard the Shriver and fight their way to the heart of the machine.

Be warned this will be an extremely lethal crawl so don't bring any character you aren't prepared to loose.

All are welcome.

Christmas Special 2010 / A Strange Occurrence on the Orient Express

"I think I'm starting to understand how these controls work." Herbert told Abi, "This set of controls here." Herbert pointed to a odd assortment of knobs, dials and leavers, "Define the Sarcophagus's spacial co-ordinates. And this set of controls." Herbert pointed to an equally eclectic assortment of knobs, dials and leavers, "Define the Sarcophagus's temporal co-ordinates."

The central column of the ornate, six sided control panel wheezed up and down with an almost hypnotic rhythm. Soft, unidentifiable but distinctly alien sounds echoed constantly in the background, their source unknown in the impossibly large craft.

"There." said Herbert, as the central column came to a rest, "Hold 4, RMS Titanic, North Atlantic, April 2012."

Something Stormwell said has given me an idea.

Cast your mind back to the end of Wrath of God, CyberZandra had just launched a lifecapsule with CyberArtair and a number of cybermen on board as a nuclear missile was closing in. She was just initiating an emergency temporal shift as the missile exploded. Now the question is; were they killed in the nuclear blast or did they survive? Stupid question, of course they survived, the arch-villain always does.

However the blast knocked the lifecapsule right through the void and into the Pete's World Universe, where Rose, Doc 10.5, Pete, Rose's mum and various other folk are trying to get back to normal after a year spent fighting cybermen, daleks etc.

Out Of Character Discussion / A Day at the Hub OOC

Some of you may be thinking WTF? with the developments in DH2.

Basically there was a slight disagreement on the creative direction. Some wanted to stick with the original plot (Romans defeated) and some wanted to explore life under the Roman occupation.

In typical VS style we compromised and decided to do both. In the original thread (Through the Looking Glass) we will carry on with the original plot. The parallel thread (Mirror Cracked) will be about life under the Roman occupation. Mirror Cracked is in the Alternate Realities section, so anything there doesn't effect the Whoniverse.

For now try and post the same post in both threads, at least until the plots start to diverge.

P.S. Aberdeen hasn't been destroyed, the North Sea gas and oil fields were the target, although Aberdeen is about to get very wet

I'm planning on running Flames of Oblivion as a series of Chapters. Chapter One could be regarded as First Contact, at the end of each chapter there will be a jump of a few days, weeks, months or in some cases years.

Technical Problems / Umlauts and accents
« on: March 18, 2009, 06:54:50 pm »
There is a problem when posting text that contains an umlaut or accent. All text beyond the accent or umlaut doesn't get posted.

This is very annoying if you have just typed a long post and there is an umlaut near the beginning :(

In the vast emptiness of space, somewhere between the core systems and the Sagittarius arm, lay a small type G2 yellow dwarf star. The star was unremarkable, as was its attendant system of ten planets. The fourth planet out was a small blue green world with an oxygen rich atmosphere. The dominant life form of that world were a tripedal, trifold symmetrical species with a recorded history going back over 100,000 years. During that time they had produced great works of art, music that stirred the soul,  paintings of exquisite beauty, magnificent sculptures. About a hundred years ago they had discovered space flight and had just stated their first tentative steps to the stars.

Without warning a stellar flare erupted from the star, aiming for the small blue green world like the flame of a blowtorch. It struck the daylight-side of the world and within seconds that side of the world died, the night-side of the world died mere minutes later.

Afterwards where there had once been a blue green world full of life there was now a blackened dead planet, its atmosphere stripped away, its oceans boiled dry.

This was just the beginning...

Signup thread for DL 2 (Name subject to change)

This thread will take place approximately one year after the end of AV ? give or take.

The year is 2012 (time is not quite in sync with the Whoniverse, it's a timey wimey thing) and the White Star Line is getting ready for the maiden voyage of its new liner, the RMS Titanic 2. At 1,650 foot length, 200 foot beam and 250,000 gross tons she is a lot larger than her Cunard rival, the Queen Mary 2

On board is the same Egyptian sarcophagus that was loaned to the Smithsonian 100 years ago. The sarcophagus is to be loaned to the Smithsonian as a good will gesture (the near war was a wake up call to both governments and both are anxious to avoid anything like that again) A lot of pressure was put on the British museum to release the sarcophagus and the Museum have sent their top Egyptologist ? Professor Herbert Schneider ? along to keep an eye things.

Queen Victoria II herself is aboard for the malden voyage, which will follow the route of the original Titanic's voyage.

Also aboard is Susan Eastwood, she's been having problems with her memory recently and her doctor recommended a holiday.

But who are the two mysterious passengers that joined at Cherbourg? And why are there so many men in black aboard? The sarcophagus has been giving off some strange readings that Torchwood can't explain. And what about that stunningly beautiful blond waitress, the one with the distinctive diamond ring ? Heather Gates ? doesn't she look a little familiar?

Are some players posting so often that it's driving other players off the forum?

Out Of Character Discussion / Assault on the Vault OOC
« on: September 19, 2008, 09:23:22 pm »
This thread is for calculating the actions and odds in the Assault on the Vault thread

I will be using the Daily Play as a random number generator for the Assault on the Vault thread.

It will work something like this:

Paul posts: Paul checks the floor for hidden traps.

I post: 12 or higher on game xxxx ball 3 to succeed. (where xxxx is that day's Daily Play number)

Then if that night?s ball 3 comes up 17 I would post: Paul notices that one of the floor tiles is a slightly different colour to the rest

On the other hand if that night?s ball 3 comes up 9 I would post: Paul cannot see anything unusual about the floor.

Each night we get 7 balls with numbers from 1 to 27. If we need more than seven balls the it will work something like this:

Magz posts: Megan attacks the Metaltron with her bare hands.

I post: 26 or higher on game xxxx_total ball 1 to succeed. (where xxxx-total is the game number of the TOTAL of that day's Daily Play number)

Then if that night?s balls come up 26, 15, 27, 11, 14, 21, 01 the total would be 115 (see game 1510), I would then look at ball 1 on game 115 (4 in this case) I would then post: Megan is killed by the Metaltron

On the other hand if that ball came up 27 I would post: Megan manages disable the Metaltron with her bare hands.

If more than 14 balls are required I post: x or higher on game xxxx_total+1 ball 1 to succeed etc.
