1st-Apr-2009 05:23 pm - IMPORTANT - Farewell and goodnight.
"Spiral"
"It's been a long road, getting from there to here."

So goes the song, and it's true. Today Econtra closes. I admit somewhat bad timing as it happens to fall on April 1st, but it's the 2-year anniversary (plus 3 days) of the game's opening. The mods would like to thank all of the players for their dedication and commitment to this game over many months. We have done our best to provide you with an entertaining, organized, and enjoyable place to roleplay and in turn you have given us a solid community of players and characters. We could not have done so without you.

In the next few hours, the mods will be removing all the core posts and profiles from the communities. Posting access to the logs community will remain open for 1 extra week to allow players to finish logging their characters' farewell and departures, but the other communities will be closed to new posts and the memberships from them removed. Nothing in any of the communities will be deleted, and we hope people will return to read their stories in the future. Further, econtradressing will be left open indefinitely.

Below is a master defriend code which you'll need to paste into the ADMIN CONSOLE. In our tenure we had some 1100 characters pass through, an astounding number. Please use this to clear off your friends lists for your character journals.



It is the mods' hope that the friendships made in this game will continue past the end of the roleplay. We'll miss playing with you and perhaps one day our RP paths will cross again.

Take care everyone,
-- Ankhi, Guil, Ro, Sammy, Tamara

Troubled
I've been trying to put it off in hopes of making it through the mod plot, but I have to step back on my RPing now. I've got some major work to do on costumes and whatnot towards Sakura-con the 10-12 of April, and I really need to concentrate on that. So, while I'll be participating as much as possible in the endgame plot, I'm not sure if my interactions with other players will stay up. I can't really start anything new at this point other than the mod plot stages, and I'll do my best to finish, albeit slowly, anything I have currently ongoing.

My activity won't really be able to pick up until after the 13th. So, if the plot's still running by then, which I know it wasn't planned to be, I'll be back, but, if not, then it's been great playing with all of you, and I hope to have some good reading when I finally come back from everything and have the time to sit down and catch up. ^_^

This effects OU!Duo deaths_pilot and OU!Quatre desertprince04.

Just letting you all know I switched my username from d347h5cy7h3h3ll to deaths_pilot... it's all still linked, so you won't lose me. Just, with the game closing, and that name finally getting deleted and purged from an old journal of mine that I renamed ages ago (and wanted the name back, but couldn't), I switched it. Not that it matters, since all this is closing down anyway... ^_^;;;

Sadly, I cannot keep my attention here in Econtra during its end days, and with me having more responsibility both in reality and the world of RP, I can no longer pull my already strained attentions here.

So please hover and remove or

I'll see ya around, guys! My time in Econtra has been utterly full of awesome.
11th-Mar-2009 11:08 am - OOC Mods Note--
"Spiral"
As you've seen, the next section of the endgame plot was just posted. However the mods have increasingly felt since the beginning of the month that the interest level, not to mention the participation level, of the players is far below expectations given the sign-ups which were received for this final plot. This is an extremely demanding and time-consuming venture, running a month-long plot, and at this point we do not feel that the players have reciprocated anywhere near that level of activity.

While we'd like to have the ending fully played out, we don't see much point if the players are going to ignore it or not bother participating. This drawn-out ending is for your benefit, not ours. If you're not interested in the endgame plot, then say so. We can have this game wrapped up in short order and allow everyone to move on, if that's what the majority prefers.
10th-Mar-2009 07:30 pm - back???
blushy, ...
Back from like a month-ish long (sorry guess I didn't announce it here) hiatus. There were so many papers filled with so many words... I still have nightmares about them. OO; hold me?

Drama aside, Xiao Lang and Sakura (yes her too *fails*) are back. And I'm lost. What did I miss? Did the rocks fall yet? It doesn't look like everyone died? :/
6th-Mar-2009 09:25 pm - Mini!hiatus is mini!
Atem [Default]
I'm going away this weekend for my cousin's wedding, leaving tomorrow morning at the virtual crack of dawn (ick, who'd do that willingly on a weekend?), and returning Monday night. This is only going to affect Atem [queenofgames] - let's assume she had a slight relapse of the food poisoning which knocked her flat on her back previously XD; I don't think an actual post in the hiatus post is necessary, right?

See you guys Monday night!
5th-Mar-2009 10:32 am - So long, Econtra!
this is what I live for
It's been an awesome three months, but it's time for OU!Wufei to be moving on.

Please friend remove preventerchang -- I'll be reusing this journal eventually.

Hello everyone! I'm back from my hiatus a few days early, as my husband decided we were good on doing vacation-y things and now wants to lounge around the house before he returns to duty. My characters - AU!Padmé, OU!Ezri, OU!Relena, OU!Zuko - will be posting shortly. :D

ED ED
Well, since I don't have the energy to figure out where to put Ed in the end!plot, I'm going to drop her ahead of time. OU!Duo & OU!Quatre are sticking it out, tho'.

So, on that note...

All right, guys. Since RL and writer's block hit me hard over the weekend and I don't want to divert you attention from the final modplot, I'm going to skip the drilling scene and start organizing units OOC. The assumption is that this was actually coordinated IC -- but I think at this point that would take too long. Sylv is looking for the following units:

1. Strike Force: Those who think they can harm an Entropi. Anyone who can drain life, and/or make barriers around one of the things so that they starve themselves. For those who were there when the rogue Keeper attacked, Sylv would appreciate input as to what/who worked last time. This also includes folks who can bend/redirect lightning. (Azula and Zuko, she's looking at you.) Others I know have these skills: Gaz, Ying Fa, Xiao Lang, and Pharaun Mizzrym. Sylv also happens to be a member of this group -- though if she wasn't, she would still try to command all of you.

2. Defense: This is largely the barrier-makers. They will work with the strike force to either guard them or protect essential buildings, such as the clinic. And if you can come up with a better name, let me know. Azula and Zuko (and their ilk) could also fit here.

3. Repairs: Anyone with skill enough to keep the buildings intact. (Edward Elric, and possibly Toph....) IF there are enough of you, this will be its own unit.

4. Infantry -- Spellcasting: All other mages, wizards, benders.

5. Infantry -- First Aid: Those who are willing to heal on the field, and transport the gravely wounded to the clinic.

6. Infantry -- Warriors: Anyone else who can fight in ways not mentioned in the strike force. Who knows? Their talents may be useful after all.

7. Healers -- Those healers stationed in the clinic, with the resources for longer-term care.

Please respond with one choice for your characters. Keep it simple. Let's pull ourselves together before the final showdown! (If it is indeed a battle.)
1st-Mar-2009 11:17 am - Soon to be saying goodbye...
L101
Well, this is it for me. My March is too busy and I am too spent to participate in the final plot, so I'll be dropping all my pups officially as soon as my last thread is wrapped up (within the next day or two). You can assume they all vanished right before the start of the plot.

It's been great. I have had such a fantastic time and met such nice friends here, and for that I shall always be grateful.

This will be for:

1st-Mar-2009 08:45 am - ENDGAME ; OOC POST
"Spiral"
We're finally here -- the beginning of the end! Just a bit excited yet? Here's a basic outline of the timeline.

The endgame plot will take up the entire month of March, there are 6 stages which are spread OOCly about 4-5 days apart. ICly the stages don't take that long, so when each new IC post is released there will be an indication of how long that stage will last so the characters can react accordingly.

All IC posts will be made in the econtra_events comm, and some stages will be interactive where the characters can reply to that post, and some stages will be reactive, where your character reacts to the events through regular logs and entries. It'll be easy to tell, because on reactive stages (like the first one) commenting will be disabled on the Events posting.

This post will be used for all OOC questions/etc.

Now the curtain rises...



STAGE 1 » APHORISM
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
aph•o•rism - n. A comprehensive maxim or principle expressed in a few words; a sharply defined sentence relating to abstract truth rather than to practical matters.

syl•lo•gism - n. A form of deductive reasoning consisting of a major premise, a minor premise, and a conclusion; for example, All humans are mortal, the major premise, I am a human, the minor premise, therefore, I am mortal.

STAGE 4 » ALLEGORY
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
al•le•go•ry - n. A figurative sentence or discourse, in which the principal subject is described by another subject resembling it in its properties and circumstances.

And thanks for giving me a good first dip into LJ RPG.

My reasons for dropping out? I won't bore you with the details.

If you want to know, ask me, otherwise, this is goodbye unless we meet someplace else.


Also, if anyone happens to know this RPG Directory community that someone created not to long ago, I'd be grateful if you posted it here.

REMINDER!

If you're participating in the endgame modplot, have your characters signed up on THIS POST ASAP. Characters not on this post will NOT be included in some stages of the modplot.

Thank you!

It's been nearly three months, but I finally finished closing out my house and moving in. I love the place to little bits. And many thanks to the mods for not throwing my rear out of the communities, both this journal and my journal for Ickis (panicky_monster).

I may end up dropping Ickis since I can't think of what to do with him, but Aelita I'd like to keep, assuming the mods are letting me stay. If that's the case, I need to speak with Belldandy-mun since before Aelita went coma, Belldandy got her soul.

So...um...hi again. ^^;

Okay, let's try this again. Has anyone moved their characters into Ast-Okto? If not, I'm going to say Faye moved in there... uh, like two-and-a-half weeks ago, heh.

24th-Feb-2009 01:18 pm - [ENDGAME PLOT] - SIGNUPS
"Spiral"
This is the sign-up list for characters participating in the final modplot. This is very important as some parts of the final stage require an accurate count of who's active. We realize the game has seen a significant number of drops since the announcement of its intended closing, and so we are asking players to very seriously consider what characters of theirs they are volunteering for this plot. If you don't think you'll have the time, interest, or dedication to carry any/all of your characters through until the end of the month, please don't sign them up as dropping them midway will directly affect other players.

We will need the following information for each character being signed up:



Notables are abilities, strengths, or traits that are most dominant on your character. This does NOT include material possessions, but only internal things, positive or negative. If your character has a certain magical/whatever ability, that would fall into this category. So would personality traits, for example extreme intelligence, or crippling claustrophobia. It's whatever you think are the two most dominant features of your character.

Please respond to this list by Monday March 2, or your characters may not be included in the plot.

EDIT 03/03: SIGN UPS NOW CLOSED.
