Worst Enemy

[identity profile] 2010-05-21 09:27 am (UTC)(link)
This is an event that I've seen in another game that could have amazing application in The Wake.

The idea is that people become their worst enemy. However, it is not just being replaced with the person who they perceive to be their worst enemy, but rather they become the person they perceive their worst enemy to be.

As an example, Crawford's worst enemy is the Senator. A man who is quite charismatic and comes across as a rather upstanding citizen to most people. However, Crawford has only ever seen the hideous side to him. So if Crawford became the Senator, he would be a version of him that was a super creeper, leered at people and was prone to sudden, explosive anger (in a much different manner than Crawford himself can be).

Balthazar would become a sickly, whiny, self-loathing John Constantine.

So it can be a drastic variation or something more subtle.

There are a ton of reasons to trigger something like this. We have a fair number of "worst enemies" in the game already. Rion and Cain, Autobots and Decepticons, demons and angels, and....uh....I know there's more but I can't think of any others right now.

Possible eggbaby event! Everyone who opts in gets an eggbaby to look after for a week. Eggbabies are assigned to pairs, OOC partner sign-ups, but ICly the pairs would be random. Possible rewards for doing well?

MAGICAL GIRL STORM Or, well you know, boy.

Sparked by Sailor Senshi presence, and perhaps those heroes that think little masks or new outfits hide their awesome identities.

Normal by day, but when trouble rolls around, it's henshin time!!

...oooor people can become the notorious villains who also feel the need to conceal their identities behind mundane names and ways, but when that itch to stir things up, or maybe gather up some energy, then it's time to don the mask and cape! -or whatever it is they favor. And the evil villain laugh. They must have the cackle. And the tendency to explain their terrible schemes when things look like they're going all according to plan, and the goodie-goodies are in their evil clutches...

Superhero Reality Storm!

[personal profile] pineapplesalmon 2012-02-13 06:39 pm (UTC)(link)
A superhero reality storm! People are suddenly superheroes or supervillain. Superheroes can suddenly become civilians or supervillians or stay as they are.

For example, Caesar Salazar is a scientist by day, Doctor Saladbar by night! With his Mighty Salad Tongs of Justice (TM), he smites the evildoers of the fair Nautilus city and teaches its citizenry about good nutrition in the same breath! Never fear, for the man wearing a crowned head of lettuce on his chest is here!

In other news, my castmates (and some noncanonmates, HECK EVERYONE) are insane, and I love them. Oh, and he'd definitely be wearing TIGHT tights. ... with boots. And a cape. His hair would not need to change, but would stay perfect no matter the situation.

Equal and Opposite

If there's a limit on posting these things, no one told me. BUT THIS ISN'T A FIGHTING STORM! THIS IS A GOOD ONE! And I think it may already be floating around?

Anyway. This can be triggered by almost anything, particularly two good friends getting in a bad argument.

During the storm, your character will come to hate the things that they loved. Say Character A loves the sunset on a normal day. Now, Character A is screaming profanities at the setting sun because it's just the worst thing in the world. The level of hate will be equal to the original level of love and it can happen with whatever you choose, if not everything. It could be the sunset, a friend, a lover, chocolate, etc.

The storm would initially last a week, but if it's drawn out (like some storms have been known to do) then the affected person could always snap out of their crazy hate-fueled rollercoaster by being reminded of why they loved that particular object in the first place.

Rapture/Ghoul storm

[personal profile] dj_mort 2013-01-28 01:38 am (UTC)(link)
In Lucas's world IOPSA (International Office of Paranormal and Supernatural Affairs) has been investigating a new drug called Rapture. Rapture induces temporary, supernatural-like abilities to its user. This could be any supernatural talent from telekinesis to empathy and everything in between. The effects vary from use to use, as does the degree of control and power of the ability.

It is also deadly. Rapture can kill you on the first use or the thousandth, it varies from person to person, dose to dose. Once deceased there is an very high likelihood that you will return within a 36 hour period as a Ghoul.

Ghouls are very unfriendly critters; a mish-mash of supernatural beasties such as vampires, werewolves, and zombies. Ghouls undergo a little bit of a transformation while dead; the sclera of your eyes turns black, fingers are elongated, fingernails are strengthened and claw-like, teeth get a little pointy. Ghouls are slightly stronger than the average human and able to see better in dim light but not total darkness. They have nasty disposition and an insatiable drive to kill; whether it's a human or animal.

There is no curing a Ghoul. Once transformed there is only one option. Ghouls can be killed by removing their heart from their body and destroying it in some manner.

So, for a week or whatever, the city is plagued by Ghouls or people turning into Ghouls...and the possibility of a friend/loved being turned into a Ghoul. Perhaps there were vials of Rapture left around, or something like that, so characters can choose to participate or not. Our robotic pals would revert to organic forms for the duration of the storm, perhaps?

After the storm, everyone will need a hug.

Contractor storm

[personal profile] imhereforschool 2013-02-03 02:23 am (UTC)(link)
With the appearance of the Purgatory Gate the real stars above Nautilus are now gone, replaced with fake ones. Each star represents a new Contractor: a person with one special power...and a payment.

So, perhaps somewhere in Nautilus a new gate appears! But not one you can walk through. Rather it is an area of abandoned buildings, streets signs with backward lettering, odd black plants, and an uneasy feeling that something strange has appeared.

Characters can be transformed into Contractors; rational-minded killers with special powers. But they pay a price every time they use such power. The power/payment combinations are endless. There's a list here for reference. When a Contractor is active, their star brightens in the night sky. When they are killed, their star falls with them.

A character can also become a Doll a passive medium; emotionless and 'programmable' to a certain extent. They are used for their control over Specters, which travel through whatever medium a Doll uses to see through. For example, Yin must be in contact with water to use her specters and can only make observations when something is close to water. They are often seen with Contractors, but that doesn't have to be the case.

There are also several secret organizations at work in the world of Darker Than Black. PANDORA has laid claim to researching Tokyo's Hell's Gate and the odd things inside it. There is the Syndicate, which is a shadow organization with its fingers in everything, working towards an unknown goal. MI6, the British Intelligence Agency, also plays a major role.
deusrexmachina: (FOR SCIENCE.)

[personal profile] deusrexmachina 2013-02-03 01:37 pm (UTC)(link)
The stars have always been fake, are the sun and the various moons... Everything upstairs is an illusion already.

I think this could be interesting, especially with more information on the various organizations (I'm personally canon blind and know absolutely nothing about it). It would provide a push so that groups could have reasons to act and interact more than just as individuals suddenly being different from their normal selves. Grouping characters that way could also get characters who normally don't interact to work together as well, perhaps? Potentially a good CR builder.
imhereforschool: (Hei - action: Contractor sparks)

[personal profile] imhereforschool 2013-02-03 03:18 pm (UTC)(link)

I've been pondering this a little, so here's so more thoughts. Of course it would take a lot of planning, but it could be really interesting for CR like you said.

Players could be Contractors, Dolls, or just regular agents working for the various organizations. After this new gate opens, they're sent in to battle for control over it. Maybe Angelii/Ashura are in charge of their organization's troops on the ground, so to speak. Whomever has control of the Gate has control over the fate of Contractors and Dolls like; some would seek to have more control over these individuals, others want to destroy the gate and wipe them out completely.

PANDORA - operated by the United Nations. Oversees research on Tokyo's Hell's Gate, staffed mostly by scientists it operates like different cells or teams. One team usually does not have access to research other teams are doing, making it operate more like MI6 or the CIA than a true research facility. Their stake in the Purgatory Gate could publicly be announced as scientific only, but for a neutral party PANDORA has an impressive military force to support it.

The Syndicate - A shadow organization with no discernible goal. They have people everywhere; top government positions, other organizations, and even in PANDORA. They make use of ME technology (Memory Extraction) to erase any witness's minds who come into contact with them. Their ultimate goal is the destruction of the gate. They tend to operate in small teams, orders are given word of mouth. Teams operate as individual cells and often times the Syndicate sends more than one team to finish a job, though by different means. It is a highly paranoid and secretive group. It is also the group that Hei is employed by.

MI6 - The British Intelligence Agency. MI6 was in Tokyo, supporting the Japanese Police and their fight against the Contractors. Or that's what they want everyone to believe. The British had fallen behind in Contractor research, thanks to a defector agent known as February. They are highly interested in PANDORA research, but also maintain a secret alliance with the Syndicate to destroy the gate. They operate in much the same way as Syndicate teams do, but seem to be more reliant on technology like cell phones than the paranoid Syndicate are.

The Japanese Police (or I guess could be the Nautilus Police) - Tries to keep knowledge of the Contractors and Dolls from the public. They also use ME technology to wipe people's memories, fearful such knowledge would cause mass panic. They rely on Astronomics, which monitors the fake stars in the sky for activity, to lead them to Contractors to try and stop them before they cause too much damage. They operate just like a regular police force does.

Evening Primrose (EPR) - A group of Contractors and Dolls whose public mission is to expose their existence and demand equal rights. They do this in the show by bombing buildings to stir up trouble, but their true objective is to stop the Syndicate and other plans to destroy the gate. They have no normal humans in the group and operate similar to a guerrilla group.

DUNGEON MASTER FOR A...WEEK: Based on an episode of the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS cartoon (SATAN'S GAME), lovable Eric called the old mysterious Dungeon Master out on his cryptic ways. And then he was placed in the role of Dungeon Master for a day. To make it easier, I'll just link this nifty full-length episode from j00toob (Day of the Dungeon Master).

Mainly, the storm is caused by Eric complaining (of many many things not limited to how the current situation can be used or if nothing is going his way), giving him the same powers (and robe) that he received from Dungeon Master. This also includes the ability to speak in riddles and stealth hi/bye. WHICH MEANS...everyone else gets to take on a D&D class and have one weapon on them to help them out through the weirdness called Nautilus.

Their main goal: Go Back Home.

Of course, I figure we either follow the episode's plot by sending everyone home at the same time, or have this be a limited-time offer. I wouldn't mind seeing everyone fight for the one-way ticket back to their world. And then there's the whole thing about it being "home"...

The Nautilus Convension Storm

[personal profile] giveadragonsomelove 2013-09-04 09:32 am (UTC)(link)
And after that depressing note, time for one more! This storm is much more light hearted and fun. Nautilus is turned into a massive convention center for Nautiluscon! The biggest geek and fandom con that ever was. People are now either attendees at the con, staff, directors of departments, guest stars, or con crashers. Complete with cosplay, games, panels, drama, caffeine, and all other sorts of con shenanigans. This is the convention to end all conventions.

All of Nautilus or at least a big part of it, will be turned into a convention center, surrounded by fast food, a park, hotels for people to stay at, and fun attractions to go see if you aren't already attending something at the con. This is just a fun week of characters turning into geeks about other characters who are just playing a part. Everyone is able to get in with a nice badge. Though some positions have more perks than others.

Trigger: Geeky/cool characters in game who wish others understood their passions for fandom. Aka I have no idea yet but some people are bound to fall into that category.

Domus Dei Storm

[personal profile] dimeliora 2013-09-21 01:28 am (UTC)(link)
Irene's homeworld is, in short, a dystopian future setting where all nations converge under the Domus Dei empire. The empire maintains its rule primarily through near constant surveillance, as well as the objective fact that they experiment and ritualistically torture citizens in order to obtain psychic abilities from a fifth-dimensional monster they deal with called the Chimera. The planet is overrun with factory-based cities called Sectors, and the usual way to get from one Sector to another are on hovercars that ride along on monorails.

The capitol of the empire is Sector Seven, where you'll find the Citadel, the Cathedral, and the Towers of Ritual.

The idea is pretty simple. For one week, Nautilus will turn into a replica of Sector Seven. Nonhumans will be made human, and Bending will be cut off, so there won't be any superpowers to fight the soldiers that constantly patrol the streets. And while characters are free to fight back, keep in mind that these soldiers are NOT pushovers. These are trained soldiers who have a quota to fill, and will literally invent reasons to shoot you even without provocation. And there's a lot of them, so uh, stirring up a ruckus might not be the best idea unless you've got enough people on your side to back you up.

The streets will have hovering monitors that have everyone's personal information on file. How they have your information, you don't know, but it's all right there in black and white. Cameras are stationed on every corner, following every motion. Always watching.

Residents will be particularly hounded by soldiers for offenses like being out before proper hours, being out after hours, owning a weapon, owning a musical instrument, owning books, CDs or DVDs that aren't government approved (hint: if it's not Domus Dei propaganda, then chances are it's not approved), badmouthing the empire, partaking in religious worship of any kind (that isn't Chimera related), or trying to leave your part of the city without a security clearance from the soldiers. And thanks to the constant surveillance, they WILL find out one way or another.

And of course, anyone caught trying to rebel against this temporary empire will probably end up in one of the many prisons scattered around the districts, possibly to end up executed if anyone wants to amp up the drama/plan super special awesome rescues.

STILL HAMMERING OUT DETAILS but will happily provide any that are needed. 8D;;

The Hate Plague

[personal profile] deusrexmachina 2013-11-10 03:19 pm (UTC)(link)
I could have sworn this was suggested at some point by one of our TF players, but I guess it never made it onto this page? FIXING NOW, I GUESS.

The Hate Plague is a sort of madness/rage disease from the third season of Transformers Generation 1. (Therefore, our present trigger would be Dead End.) It's a highly contagious sickness that ravaged the universe long ago, based on the spread of ridiculously hard to destroy spores. When it was unleashed in TF G1, it spread rapidly from organism to organism, Cybertronian and organics alike. One touch was all it took to pass the plague along.

Victims of the Hate Plague are exceedingly violent and destructive, eager to spread the plague to uninfected and turn a glowing blood red all over while infected. The need for violence drives infected to lash out against uninfected, property and even one another.

In G1 continuity, the only cure for the Hate Plague was pure wisdom. Optimus Prime eradicated the epidemic by unleashing the accumulated wisdom of the Matrix of Leadership into the universe. As we don't have that present in Nautilus, potentially those who end up infected would stay that way until storm's end (unless they die during the storm, which would mean they'd come back normal again afterward).

To make things easy, the best way to start it might be for the storm to unleash a number of infected rodents into the city at storm start. The basis for this idea is that rats were the test subjects for the Hate Plague when the spores were discovered by human scientists in TF G1 continuity. People could play out noticing the rats, coming into contact with them and turning, or not noticing them and getting jumped on while sleeping or whatever else before becoming infected. (Other ways could be brainstormed, too, so the rat idea's just an initial thought.)

[personal profile] didntfall 2014-02-05 06:38 pm (UTC)(link)
Ah, Bending. Such a useful tool. It gives you clean clothes, food, and superpowers if you've never had them before. It's such a part of everyday life in Nautilus that it's hard to imagine a day without it.

Guess what? That's all going away for a week.

"No problem! I've always had superpowers and they're bound to me!" you say?

Yeah, those are gone, too.

Time to experience life as an ordinary human. Even if you weren't one to begin with.

All previously-trained physical abilities--such as hand-to-hand combat or swordsmanship--are retained but are weakened to ordinary trainable levels. For example, Six won't be able to move like a human blur in a fight and Sanji won't be able to kick things that weigh six hundred pounds. If it's not possible on a mundane Earth, assume you can't do it.

The trigger for this storm would be all the people who came to Nautilus who were originally powerless to begin with such as Takagi here, Mike and Chuck from Motorcity, and so on.

Have fun, everyone!

Pleasure Island Storm

[personal profile] givealittlewhistle 2014-05-28 01:04 am (UTC)(link)
Oooh, now what's all this? It seems that Nautilus has suddenly gotten a gigantic carnival! Complete with free rides, free food, free games, music and merriment everywhere! Of course, there are a few... other temptations, as well. Lots of cigars and cigarettes being pushed onto minors to smoke, plenty of alcohol being handed out to kids, and maybe to throw in fun just for the adults there are a few other temptations like gambling strips as well as model homes, cars, all kinds of other things for people to destroy to their hearts' content. And strangely enough, the longer Wakened stay in the carnival, the harder and harder it is for them to garner the willpower to leave. Who needs Bending school! Who even needs to go home! It's like a neverending Mardi Gras, where debauchery is encouraged, the good times keep rolling, and everyone's free to make a jackass of themselves!

Except in this case, if Wakened indulge themselves a little too much, or stay in the festivities a little too long? That's exactly what will happen. The transformation tends to start out slow - maybe someone's laugh sounds oddly like the bray of a donkey. Or maybe they've suddenly sprouted big floppy ears, or grown a tail (though unless they see their reflection or have it pointed out to them, they won't notice). Either way, a Wakened who stays and continues misbehaving will eventually turn into a full fledged donkey for the rest of the week.

At the end of the storm, the ones who stayed away from this carnival of vices - or at least wised up enough to get out before they changed - get a little golden star pin. The ones who got turned into donkeys get... donkey-related things, like maybe a carrot or a feedbag.

storm re-request?

[personal profile] dj_mort 2014-07-25 07:11 pm (UTC)(link)
I wasn't in Wake when the Ten Years Later storm happened and I thought it sounded really intriguing! Would it be possible to toss that into the voting again at some point in the future?

Maybe this time with a different twist. Instead of no new Wakened in the last ten years, or the others simply vanishing, that they all fought some Vague Evil Force and came out the winners. Only during that threat the ones who are unaffected by the storm were swept away by the Big Bad and everyone who remained thought they had gone back to Sleep/were unmade/was hiding in Helix or whatever. The first day of the storm would be the first day those who are affected think their friends/family from ten years ago have returned. (I'm sure someone can come up with a better twist than this, this is all I could think of right now!)

I don't know if this could be a trigger, but I know all three of my characters have been pondering their futures in Nautilus, Hei especially. I'm sure they aren't the only ones!

Cartoon Physics storm

[personal profile] canbemore 2015-01-07 11:54 pm (UTC)(link)
So for a storm's duration everyone who wants to be affected has the awesome ability to walk on thin air until they look down, explode and only come out of it being singed, paint a door on a wall and open it like normal, have hearts and cupids fly around their heads when they spot the love of their life, have anvils fall on them and live, etc.

Basically Nautilus is in a state of looney tunes style shenanigans all week.

Ya'll can thank Harvey and John Crichton for this one, because in an episode of Farscape this totally happened. Also we do have some other character from shows with this kind of physics or visual gags so, that works too!

[personal profile] coilsofthedragonserpent 2015-02-03 07:55 am (UTC)(link)
Since we have not only a Toon Link, Sonic, Hazama, and Nu, I figured this suggestion is overdo. The city is morphed into a massive fighting game/tournament. After all, with these characters who are connected to fighting games and all of the suppressed aggression some of our lovely citizens have, it could easily trigger this storm.

People get life bars, damage percentages, and/or lives. The city breaks out into fights, be it just random happenstance fights because; hey, you're both in the same room. FIGHT! That or you get cutscenes like in an arcade mode and then begin the fights and after cutscene.

Winner takes all and perhaps one of the Deva or someone else appears to be our big bad boss battle? Since, yeah. Every fighting game needs that unfair super powered boss battle. Am I right?

And yes. It was also partially inspired by this video.

Rated G Nautilus (ministorm, mini-event idea? idk)

[personal profile] doctorbluescreen 2015-02-23 08:52 pm (UTC)(link)
This could be a ministorm triggered by Nautilus himself at some point down the line. In a nutshell, he's tired of Wakened fighting, trying to kill each other, or in some cases just being rude or mean to each other on the Network. The city could use a little uplifting!

And thus, the Rated G ministorm. Where bad language gets censored with sound effects, bad words end up re-written as other words, and anyone who tries to say something mean ends up saying a compliment instead. Also, if someone tries to attack someone else with a weapon, said weapon becomes a squeaky toy version of itself. Trying to land punches ends up with Soc-Em-Boppers being placed on a Wakened's fists. Attempting to fire guns only results in that little cartoon flag that says "BANG!" coming out of the barrel. Malicious Bending doesn't work at all, unless you count growing flowers as working. COUGH.

Oh, and any wounds that somehow result in this just have... a rainbow popping out instead of blood and then they're literally okay a second later.

Extra Limbs Storm

[personal profile] emeraldsearcher 2015-04-27 07:51 am (UTC)(link)
Basically characters will have extra limbs of some kind. It can be something as simple as an extra finger or two extra sets of arms, or it can be something like gaining horns or wings. You can also have them regain a lost limb if you wanna be nice or cruel.

Obviously there would be limits put in so you can't turn your character into a cat girl/boy save that for another storm.

Crystal Gem Storm

[personal profile] between_duality 2015-11-15 11:41 pm (UTC)(link)

That is, this storm will turn residents of Nautilus into Crystal Gems! Gems are a race of aliens who are actually gemstones, able to manifest a physical body with their gemstone on show (i.e. on their forehead, in their palms or even, like Steven's, on their belly button). Wakened characters will find that their clothing, skin and hair colour matches the facets of their gemstone. All gems have the ability to summon a unique weapon from their gem and retreat into their gem when their body is heavily injuried. Technically immortal, the only way to kill a gem is to destroy their gemstone - breaking or cracking a Wakened's gemstone will result in their form 'glitching out'.

Some unlucky residents may not be Crystal Gems but Corrupted Gems - gems injured or otherwise altered so they manifest as monters rather than as people. Corrupted gems are dangerous and lack sentient thought, and will attack others without hesitation - the only exception being when Steven attempted to heal one by spending time with them.

No bending during this storm! Figure out how to use your gem powers instead!

At the end of the storm, everyone who was turned into a gem will recieve their gem weapon as a souvenir. Everyone will recieve a gemstone, regardless if they transformed or not.

Vâdak Storm

In Irene's canon, the afterlife generally consists of degrees of Heaven. But it's worth bearing in mind that this doesn't necessarily mean that it's all butterflies and rainbows for everyone who dies.

Between mortal worlds and the Kingdom of Light, there exists a labyrinth of astral planes that angels call the Vâdak.

The afterlife is pretty much literally what the psyche of the soul makes it. For example, if a soul is weighed down by negativity, grudges, or has been conditioned to believe that they're going to Hell, then that's what they'll get. The soul's psyche will imprint on one of the astral planes of the Vâdak, and until they overcome that negativity or whatever's dragged them to Hell, that's where they'll stay.

For this storm, the affected would be dragged to the Central Plaza and trapped inside dream-like projections of their own negativity or their own sins. Maybe a murderer would finally feel the pain of his victims, finding himself in the hands of a sadistic entity that reflects his ruthlessness. Maybe a thief finds themselves robbed of everything precious to them, having to trek a place brimmed with their worst fears to get it back. Maybe someone who's been murdered finds themselves being stalked by their killer, needing the courage to face them down and accept what happened. Really, the possibilities are endless.

This doesn't mean that unaffected don't get to play a part, however. While the Central Plaza will be sealed off with a spherical veil, unaffected will be able to pass through it and into the imprinted planes of the affected Wakened. They'll be free to try to help a friend find their way out or guide them, but outside entities stepping into these planes tend to come across as monstrous or malicious to the souls trapped inside (hence why angels don't interfere too heavily). It can also become dangerous for unaffected, the longer they stay. The longer they stay in what is effectively someone else's mind, they might find themselves losing their own memories or pieces of their own identity.

At the end of the week, the Vâdak will vanish. Affected Wakened that overcame their nightmares/sins will be awarded a pin of silver angel wings, while Wakened that didn't quite overcome it will be given a silver coin, with 'don't give up' engraved on it in angelic runes.

Blame Knuckles

People turn into tiny cute talking hamsters! With hamster adventures! And increase the cat population of the city by like 100 so the hamsters have something to avoid. Cats are evil, you know.

This is mostly just pure crack brought about by Knuckles' comment and the city's constant need for cute things. I mean LOOK AT THIS CUTE!
