OKAY, YOU GUYS. The Allpocalypse, as you know, is taking place on Thursday, so it's high time I gave y'all a bit of a briefing on just what's going to happen once the hurricane hits the out-house.
In-game, events are scheduled to go down over a period of about six hours, from T-minus 6HRS, counting down to zero (Allpocalypse Now). However
, because we know how much you all enjoy shenanigans, the actual threading of the endgame will take place over two days, starting tomorrow, so as many people as possible have the opportunity to get involved. (Slowtimes, of course, can continue running for the next two weeks
Beginning around late morning/early afternoon EST Wednesday
, the first of the two main Allpocalypse posts will go up in milliways_bar
. This post will be Millitimed to Thursday, and will cover the first three hours of the Allpocalypse. Each hour will have its own subthread, like so:
SUBTHREAD #1: -06 TO -05 HRS
SUBTHREAD #2: -05 TO -04 HRS
SUBTHREAD #3: -04 TO -03 HRS
Much like party posts, everyone is invited to interact within those subthreads, run around gratuitously threadhopping, reacting to events as they unfold, and generally joining in the free-for-all. Thursday's post will follow much the same format, and will cover the final three hours of the Allpocalypse.Hold on,
you say, 'react to events as they unfold'?
Mwahahaha. Haha. Ahem. Yes. With the gleeful co-mastermindery of those who came forward to throw something into the mix
, as many of said things as I could feasibly cram in have been smooshed together to create a core chain of events that will lead to the Allpocalypse, and to Milliways' eventual fate.
Now, what exactly those events are, I shan't spoil too much. But if you want to jump in with a character, here are some things to tempt your palate:1. ( Goblins and kobolds and wights, oh my!Collapse )2. ( By the power of Greyskull!Collapse )3. ( Hull breach on the lower decks, captain! Shields are down to ten percent!Collapse )4.
"But I want my character to ________!"
Well, with some caveats. If your character would be running around trying to evacuate people, hop into a subthread and get cracking! If your character would be frantically tending to the scorched and singed and gnawed-upon? Jump right in! All we ask is that you keep Allpocalypse-related things in the Allpocalypse posts.
And if you're planning something that you think might interfere with, ahem, Other Plans (destroying an artifact, breaking the Observation Window, etc.), then just ask! I'll be hanging out in AIM chatroom allpocalypse
for as much of the duration as I can possibly manage, so feel free to swing on by and check in, co-ordinate shenanigans with any other players that may or may not be there, or just say hi!
(And if you want to use the comments of this post to plan any hijinks, feel free to do that as well!)
