*dusts off community*

So, this community isn't nearly as active as I'd like it to be, and I want to change that. :3

Right now, the SK muns are as follows:

Lindsay [ Cuthbert, Scott & Flagg ]
Steph [ Lisey, Cort (temp, gone) ]
Nelle [ Glen, Alain & Trisha ]
Mania [ Lloyd ]
Sam [ Ilse ]
Emily [ Edgar (gone) ]
Elissa [ Henry ]

And I love you all very very much. x3

So there are a few things I wanted to address. First and foremost-- current/recent events, or a brief summary of the last six months-ish in SK town.

So as not to devour your friends page.Collapse )

If I missed anything, please let me know. Anything significant in the life of your pup, especially if it pertains to canon, should be added here. I like to keep track, and if I actually start doing this more often, it'll be a reminder for us all to be involved in each other's pups. :3

Right, so. Onward. The other thing I wanted to talk about was our future together. :'3

Ultimately, my ideal for the SK pups is to have them all interacting-- not necessarily on a really regular basis, but for all of them to have some kind of link to each other. I don't want to force it, of course. But I think it would be great if we could pay homage to their roots, and get them involved in some scary/thriller type plots, or at least put them in interesting situations together. Crackplots are ideal for this, of course, but Stephen King generally works with extremely ordinary settings in his stories, and there's absolutely no reason we can't exploit that. :D

For instance, Henry is from Dreamcatcher. As a kid who grew up in Maine, a snowstorm isn't exactly going to get him all PTSD-- but what if he's snowed in a cabin with a bunch of SK pups? What if Trisha believes that her God of the Lost has somehow found her on the island, sent a storm to lock her in? What if Scott begins to believe this God is the same as his Longboy; a malevolent spirit that's really on the island? What if Henry has read Scott's canon and begins to believe that Scott's cabin fever is beginning to look a lot like madness? What if Flagg makes jokes about Lloyd turning cannibal, or hoards the powdered hot chocolate?!?

See, guys. We can be terrifying. All we have to do is plot. Coming up, we've definitely got the winter weather to work with. I know that there was talk of a stuck-in-TV-land plot, we could totally work with that if it pans out. I have some item ideas for Scott kicking around-- one is hugely supernatural and I very much doubt it could get approved, but I might try anyway if I decide it's really the best bet for him. In a few months Flagg will be out, and while I am trying to rehabilitate himself somewhat, he can still cause trouble of the not-stabbing variety.

Another thing we might want to consider is doing a few canon-pimping posts in an attempt to lure more SK pups to the island, if we decide on some specifics we'd really like to have. We could pimp in-game and out of game to cover all our bases.

Basically, this is a post to holler you all home and remind you that even though things have been kinda SSDD around here, but I am offically taking a stand now even though as a community mod I have shown a regrettable lack of substance. D:

x3 Gimme palaver. Y'know, your thoughts and stuff.

chart update

Hey guys, I finally got around to updating the relationship chart. But because I'm not always on top of what all of the SK pups are doing, I'm going to need you to fill in what I'm missing, especially new pups like Cort, Henry, and Edgar. Let me know who they've met and how, who they are friends with, acquaintances with, etc.

Just comment to this post and I'll update accordingly.

Your official Randall Flagg!plot pimp post!

So, I've been putting this off for awhile even though I'm very very excited about it because it always seemed too far away to really do any plotting. We're coming up on June, though, and that means that in a month, give or take, the island may (provided everything goes according to plan, and providing that the app is accepted) have its very own Randall Flagg.

I'm looking for people who are interested in plot. I've chiefly been working with Mania and Nelle, of course, for input on how his arrival will affect Lloyd and Glen, but in order to really stir up some trouble, he could really use some of your pups to aid and abet him. That could mean lots of different things, of course, depending on what you'd like your pup to get involved in.

Per someone's request:

This is your brain:

This is your brain on Flagg:

well hey there kids,

tonight i'll be debuting my new pup, mr. edgar freemantle from 'duma key'. he's going to be appearing on the edge of dino territory, bloody and shaken up but not severely hurt. i'm asking that nobody who would tell him about ilse tag him right away, which i realize rules a few of you out-- but those that don't know her (or just don't know her well enough to know her dad's a one-armed artist named edgar, lol) are more than welcome. i'd like to get as many fellow s.king pups as i can, so any of you who might be meandering on the beach near dino territory, tag away! :D

after the debut, edgar's going to spend a few weeks going a little native-- avoiding the main island settlement at all costs, basically, but i will be EPing him again before he decides to man up and go back to society, so anyone who doesn't get a chance to tag the debut could do so then.

idk why i put this here since it basically says the same as the slated post, but i'm so thrilled to officially join the ranks of s.king muns, lol. any questions or comments, leave 'em here, and/or any plot ideas for current or forthcoming stuff is awesome, too. \o/ \o/ \o/ and i'll talk to most of you later tonight!

So, I just wanted to do a quick recap of our ideas in the Dark Tower planning chat that was held last night, 02/16.

Just some down-home Hambry lovin'...Collapse )

6 degrees of seperation

If you haven't looked at and/or commented on Lindsay's post, please do that!

I have restructured the chart she made to show the relationships between our pups. Let me know if I got something wrong or missed something please! Also, while it makes sense to me, if it's confusing to you, please say so. Things things are cool in conception but strangely difficult to make clear.

-Light Grey lines = People not met but known on sight/through association

When you have a moment, please take the time to list pups that your characters are particularly close to. The general idea is to know how strongly action may touch certain pups even outside of our circle. This of course can also include SKing pups. For example:

1st Degree: (family and closest friends) Nick Andros, Scott & Lisey Landon, Jane Bennet
2nd Degree: Guy Burgess, Shepherd Book, and Sandor Clegane, Cuthbert Allgood
3rd Degree: Moritz Stiefel & Melchior Gabor
Special Cases: Lloyd Henreid

Most of us have other pups on TR. Take a moment to list what relationships those pups have with current SKing pups.

If your pups(any of them, not just SKing) are part of any sort of committee, workforce, etc. please list that.

Just a quick reference map to show where our pup's live in relation to one another.

With all this stuff I'm just trying to give us an overview of who and what we have to work with.

EDIT: ALSO, and maybe this would be good for a separate post, but we should all do this for our pups at some point to see who's who and what's what in their developmental stages with one another. Naturally this is another Lindsay original cause she's good like that. :D

This is first in a long line of posts that will begin plotting for the Stephen King pups on the island. First thing we ought to get sorted is what kind of plot we're looking for, exactly. I'm still planning on temp-apping Flagg (however if anyone knows of someone else in-game who is interested, including yourselves, please let me know 'cos as excited as I am, it's mostly just that I want him on the island!) and I imagine a huge chunk of our plot will revolve around that.

I guess I'll kickstart the conversation by saying that I think what needs to happen is that Flagg needs to get his ass kicked and his rights read to him. Ideally, I'd like to see a plot when Randy arrives, maybe in a guise, maybe not, and starts playing his usual games. I would love for this to be a big-scale thing, but I know Tarie was planning on doing some chaos!plot with the Joker and I'm not sure if she still is. In the event that she is, I'd like to try and squeeze Flagg to fit in with that plot rather than compete with it, which I think could work nicely.

I have to admit, I'm a character-person, not a plot person, so I'm really looking for any and all ideas you guys can provide for a good story arc. Power-plays are considerably more difficult to achieve on the island, though Mania had the excellent suggestion that Flagg could start trying to amass a mini-Vegas, starting with places like the Catscratch Club and trying to gain influence through the island's booze production/what seedy underbelly there is. I thought the idea of an island mini-Vegas was great, and I'd love to work that in.

The other thing I'd like to see happening is some of that great SK metaverse coincidence, the idea that all of these people are connected. We've made some awesome progress on that front, mostly thanks to Mania's forthcoming tags with Lloyd on all of the Stephen King pups. So far, I don't think there's a single connection that hasn't been made. Here, let me be a geek and draw a chart.

Ummm, yeah, I suck at stuff like that. One of you could surely do a better job, and there's your impetus. BUT ANYWAY. Point is, we've done a fabulous job so far of integrating people. What I'd like to see is different kinds of connections forged (maybe Trisha and Ilse take a class with Scott, for example), and eventually, when Flagg comes, he'll be able to sense from each individual what role the character plays in the greater metaverse (some of which will be canon, stated or implied, some of which I'll have to make up) and that'll be what determines his attitude toward different pups.

So I'm all over the place at the moment, but this is basically a placeholder for brainstorming. Add stuff here as you think of it and basically just generate conversation with one another. What are the big things you'd like to see happen to your pup? What are your favorite Stephen King plot devices/tropes that we could inflict on these guys? How can we use island plots, like genderswitch, to further our own ideas?

Okay, I'ma let you guys figure stuff out on yer own now. :P

Hello hello hello, constant readers and islanders! Thank you for joining up with our little community and let's get this ball rolling, shall we?

I'm Lindsay- I play Cuthbert Allgood, Scott Landon and some other chick who's not a Stephen King character. XD I'm a puffickly hoo-yooge fan of Sai King and it makes me ridiculously happy to have our very own corner of the island for chat and planning.

It's sort of been my goal to create a microcosm of the Stephen King metaverse on Tabula Rasa, and I hope we can use this community to generally chat about our long-term character goals, and what we'd like to see happen in the way of plot. I basically just want to generate ideas based on our shared knowledge of various books, and assist each other in freaking out/frightening/inspiring/healing/amusing our pups- whatever the case may be.

Ummm... lessee. I'll start my introductions in the comments, and maybe you guys can follow. Yeees? :}
