Seriously yall need to come talk to me or instructor enpecee cuz i dont think a single one of yalls got a damn clue what we been talking about. Aint got an office tho so im set up here on the beach. Bring something to drink and something to write with and we'll get ya up to speed.


[As promised in the BBS post, Namur can be found chilling in a big hammock strung up between two trees. The papers he's in the process of grading are piled in a folder with a rock dropped on top to keep them from blowing away, the ones already graded in a similar folder. He's got his laptop and a couple text books in the hammock with him, one he's using as a hard backing to write on, a few bright red pens scattered over the lot, and a couple of water bottles in a pile at the foot of one of the trees. Yes, he's wearing the shades Thatch gave him for his birthday. Do feel free to come and bother him for fish caught in a net puns whatever reason. He'll appreciate it.]

Attention, all SeeDs and all residents of Balamb Garden. This is an emergency. This is not a drill.

Earlier this morning we were contacted by the group known as Sol Invictus, who brought with them a more complete version of the Time Compression Mage's calculations -- he had apparently approached them prior to approaching us. These equations confirm to our satisfaction that the Time Compression Mage's plans require invoking a Lunar Cry. His plan to return to his own home will damage or destroy this world.

We have exactly one day to prepare, after which time Balamb Garden will travel to Esthar and we will put an end to his plans. I do not know all of what we can expect, but monsters and a hideously powerful mage are guarantees. All SeeDs and cadets will enter battle using whatever means are most effective. Ready yourself.

I will monitor the BBS for suggestions and discussions. If you have any ideas you believe can be of use, post them or bring them to me immediately.

You have your orders. Begin your preparations.

/03/ BBS.

Hello, Garden! I hope everyone is enjoying a wonderful Valentines Day, especially after all the goodies we received from the Headmaster and friends and acquaintances. This would be my very first Valentines Day as mother and wife, but with my son and my husband back home, it feels a bit lonely. But I have Starfire here and she's been a great friend.

I have grilled seaweed hearts in the Home Economics classroom for everyone if you want to stop by and take one or two. They're delicious and good for you, so take a dozen if you want!

And to Starfire, I have a Valentine present for you. Come pick it up in the Home Economics room today or see me tonight and I'll make sure you get your present.

Thank you!

[ Dolphin could feel a slight tremor beneath her feet from where she sat in her Dean's office, filing papers. She's heard knocking and footsteps most all day. Frankly, she's glad that she's not the Commander's secretary, as she thinks that whoever would have that job would have to deal with a lot of angry cadets and SeeDs.

But the tremor beneath her feet is different. She knows this reaction to a force of strength very well, and it causes her to pull out her laptop, open her messaging program, and put in the recipient line: STARFIRE. ]

I heard your footsteps in the Dean's office. Did you go see the Commander? Are you okay?

[And here is Koriand'r wearing a nice looking scarf. Granted she's in her room so she really doesn't need it at the moment]

Whoever left me presents in my room, thank you very much! I love them.

[Really she suspects she knows who it was. Who else would give her books on flying stunts]

[There's a small pigtailed girl sitting on a bench, poking at the laptop Garden had provided her with. She had a vague induction as to what it was, but really it was kind of a mystery. Someone had told her that there was something called a "BBS" on here and that it was easy to meet other off-worlders on it.

So far she'd learned that if you moved the arrow around and pushed a button it did something. There were some interesting things to read about, like the Garden's rules and notices... but she couldn't seem to find this BBS. Not just that, but when she pressed the keys to write, no letters showed up anywhere.

As time goes on, she grows increasingly perplexed, her frown deepening.

She was going to work out this laptop thing!

Maybe if I talk to it...?

Show me the BBS!

Is anyone good with mathematics? I'm in the remedial class and I still don't know if I'm getting it. It's a lot of information that I never had to learn before. I really would like to know if I am understanding it. - Kory

Also, no offense to the teachers, but I'm so bored in some of my classes.

[Night has fallen on Balamb Garden; the halls of Garden are mostly deserted besides the stray student walking about, and even the usual faculty members are missing from their posts around the school. There's a certain festive energy through the air, the source coming from the Ballroom cheerily decorated located on the second floor.

At exactly 2100, as soon as the dinner rush ends, the Garden chime sounds and the intercom clicks on. The Headmaster speaks to the Garden.]

The Graduation Ball is now beginning. Your attendance is requested at [2F] Ballroom.

I repeat, the Graduation Ball is now beginning. Your attendance is requested at [2F] Ballroom. The dance will run until 2400. Students leaving the ball after curfew are to return to their dorms immediately.

Also, Garden will be disembarking from Lake Obel at 1000 hours tomorrow for our return to Balamb continent, so please remain on campus tomorrow morning. The new quarter will start on Monday. I hope you've enjoyed your break!

[After the announcement, the intercom falls silent. The faint sound of upbeat orchestrations can be heard from the second floor of the building. In the second floor ballroom, the Headmaster, Garden faculty, and even some of the instructors are present, so troublemakers are free to roam until 2400. Caterers roam, offering drinks and refreshments to the party goers; a stationary stand for punch and food is also offered.]

(Mod note: You may participate in the dance in comments to this post, or opt to make your own new post or log.

The dance is not mandatory (though it is strongly recommended that newly graduated SeeDs attend), so students that choose not to attend won't be punished.

Newly graduated SeeDs are required to wear their uniforms. Otherwise, the occasion is black tie. All inhabitants of Garden are welcome to the festivities.

Should players have any questions left unanswered, feel free to ping the mods via PM.)

[ It always takes him a minute or two to figure out the system after an extended stay away from Garden. Truth be told, his world is somewhat like this one - the disproportionate levels of technology mixed in with the old ways, but computers were one of the things that had gone with the gun. So the window remained open for a minute before he types. ]

It is good to back. It has been a while since I was here last. So introductions: I am Yoshi, from a village in Japan and a world that is like this one in many ways. [ This is so hard for him. Awkward to say the least, but he is trying, durn it. ] It would seem that I shall be teaching the Advance Bladed Weapons class and Philosophy in the next quarter. I hope you will enjoy them booth.

Good luck also, to those taking the test. May your mind and weapons hold true.


[ After cleaning off the dust of the rode and checking the BBS for any familiar names, Yoshi retreated to the Quad with his swords and his cleaning kit. Since he came to this world, he had been given a pair of blades suited for a samurai since he never had a set for himself. It had been unspoken back home that he would inherent his father's swords along with the family's titles and lands, especially with the Dragon hanging on his neck as proof of his finished quest, so he had never needed to have a set made. Though Yoshi had found himself thinking on having his own blades, as a way to separate himself from the bloody past that the Dragon and his ancestors had lived in.

Despite his dislike for violence, he still enjoyed fighting. He liked the way he can make the sword dance against imaginary enemies and against another skilled swordsman. There was something satisfying about it, all the training and lessons condensed to breathless movement. Maintaining his weapons also was satisfying. It helped with relaxing his thoughts and set his hands on a task that was not harmful to anyone else. The rasp of whetstone against steel, the feel of the blade against oiled and then soft cloth, it put him in a peaceful state.

It definitely made him not really pay attention to his surroundings like he should have been. ]

[There is an orange-skinned woman with green eyes and curly red hair on the screen sitting outside one of the buildings, studying it for a moment before she speaks. She's not quite her normal perky self]

I still don't understand how I ended up here. I have things that I have to do at home. I need to apologize...

[She's silent a moment]

I guess that if I can't leave, there are worse places I could be. It at least doesn't sound like a bad place. My name is Koriand'r, but please, call me Kory.

Also, and I apologize if I say this wrong, but it looks like I am staying with someone named "Te-re-zi Py-rope"?

[Not everyone was off having a grand old time at the Homecoming Dance.]

[For example, take this pegasus pony, who -- after clearing the clouds out from around Balamb as promised -- has snuck a purloined cumulus into the Training Center. Not terribly deep inside, but high enough to be out of range of danger, she lies on her cloud and looks miserable.]

[She is, after all, clearly not cool enough to go to the stupid dance where no one wants her around anyone and it's not like she has anyone to impress so she gets an invite onto the Wonderbolts so why should she bother even showing up.]

[Stupid dance. Stupid Garden. She's way too cool for ANY of them.]
wrnpcs: ([cafeteria npcs])

[There seems to be a festive atmosphere all throughout Garden. Why? Because it's the Homecoming Carnival! The Garden Festival Committee and their unaffiliated helpers have been hard at work all morning and when 1300 hours strikes, it's finally open for everyone to enjoy.

The directory has been reprogrammed slightly:
It also has a piece of paper stuck underneath:
Kissing booth: Turn around
Food booths: Around 1F main circle
Triple Triad: 2F bridge
Carnival games: Front gate area
Ferris wheel, bumper cars, carousel: Road to Balamb

Each stall/booth has free, more elaborate maps:
Big image! )

Have fun, Garden!]

Each attraction will have its own thread. We've listed the people running shifts in the top comments as a reminder to those who signed up; feel free to make your character a thread for their shift even if you missed OOC signups.

Characters have different shifts which allow for everyone to enjoy other parts of the carnival as well instead of being stuck manning a booth the whole night. For the dunk tank, kissing booth, food booths, and talent quest it's best to leave your character's name in the subject of their comment to start off their thread indicating their shift/time onstage.

Proceeds will be going towards building and furnishing a student lounge for fun stuff, so most attractions cost money:
Kissing booth: 2 gil per kiss
Ferris wheel, bumper cars, carousel: 5 gil per person
Carnival games (throwing/shooting X at Y, water gun race, whack a mole, skee ball, Ring the Bell, etc): 1 gil per game
Face painting: 2 gil per person
Food stalls: Snow cones 3 gil, cotton candy 3 gil, and funnel cake 5 gil; "food from your home world" up to individual characters
Dunk tank: 5 gil for 3 balls, 10 gil for 10 balls
Fortune telling: 3 gil per reading
Marriage booth: 5 gil a couple
Balloon animals: 3 gil an animal
Wandering entertainers: Donations welcome
Judgmental Claire stare: 5 gil

Please disregard any posters you see bearing my name and accompanied by the words 'Happy Birthday'. Thank you.



[Gakupo is using a stick to reach a very high poster that simply said 'Happy Birthday, Gakupo!' in thick purple letters. Whoever put it that high (at least three feet above him) has too much time on their hands.]

Hey, any of you folks from other world bring your own GFs with you? Or things that shouldn't be GFs but are? I want to hear how they work for you.

-The Great Jecht

[Jecht sent this message from, of all places, the library. Now, seeing this bronzed athlete in there instead of swimming or just hanging out is as unlikely a sight as Garden has ever seen, but weirder still, he's got a few books stacked up and is clearly attempting to puzzle his way through one. Jecht isn't stupid, mind, but no one can accuse him of being book-smart, and the dissertation on the effects of GFs he's attempting to read is just not his style.]

[The GFC, the Disciplinary Committee, and Fight Club have teamed up to bring Balamb Garden an unforgettable experience with the weekend-long paint balloon tournament! Prior to the tournament, various sponsorships are given tables to organize and plot for their dominance over the other teams.

During the tournament, most parts of the school is fair game! (Though Headmaster has politely requested that all students refrain from the usual restricted parts of the school). Feel free to hit your opponents, though don't be surprised if they strike back! There are a few stations that are designated paint-free zones: the GFC, DiscComm, and Fight Club areas (as the Fight Club's hosting seminars, the DiscComm is monitoring students for suspicious activity, and the GFC's selling balloons and food) as well as the gymnasium and pool, but the rest of Garden is fair-game.

All students, SeeD, and staff members are given ten paint-filled balloons to start. The GFC will be selling extra balloons for 2 gil a piece, while craftier people may find a way to circumvent their limits.

Happy Holi! Fight, win, and eat lots of yummy spring-themed goods!]

[ooc: We will not be monitoring balloon usage, so feel free to go over the limit! We just politely request that you refrain from using a godlike amount unless it would be IC for your character. Enjoy Holi, everyone!]

I don't know who you are, or what you think you're pulling. This letter you gave me? Bullshit.

I want some real answers and I want them now. Start talking or I'll start bashing heads.


[Stomping around the lobby is a woman who looks extremely pissed off. The letter everyone receives when they arrive is crumpled up in her fist, a fist that is being waved in the faces of various strangers as she threatens them. Feel free to approach her and get yelled at.]

So who all out there is interested in forming a Blitzball team? Won't be much to it since we don't have any opponents yet, but if we get enough people (and a place to play) we could have exhibitions, really get people into the game.

Blitzball, if you don't know, is played underwater. The point's to get a ball into a goal. It's a pretty rough sport, but there ain't a better one.

[Marco will have a giant sign in the cafeteria wishing Espio the Chameleon a Happy Birthday and there's a cake under it. There are also pirate party hats and candy; feel free to have some. There's even a message on the BBS:]

Hey everyone still using the old computers! Today is Espio's birthday, so if you see him in the hall, be sure to give him a big hug and say Happy Birthday!

[And then he will help "rescue" his brother from all the commotion he created in the first place. It'd be diabolical if it wasn't so ridiculous.]
