Overview )
The Nine Sections )


Posts in [community profile] damned_city will be in prose, log-based format. Because of the scope and size of the area, moving posts will not be necessary. The act of going from one district to another can be largely handwaved if the player would like, but please try to be realistic in how much distance a character would be able to cover in a day, depending on their method of travel.

Players will use the following template when setting up their posts:

Subject Line: Day/Night #: Morning, Afternoon, Evening, Night, Dawn, etc., Farwell
Who: Characters involved. If it’s open for others to join in, please say so.
Where: Section #, Location
Summary: The gist of what the thread's going to be about.

This post will also serve as a general FAQ regarding Farwell. If you have any questions, please feel free to post them here, and a mod will get to you as soon as possible.

The city is a wide, and perhaps even haunted in places. There’s no telling what someone may find. We’d like to invite people to think of things their characters might stumble across or maybe even put together themselves. In other words, players are free to think of their own locations within each section. An abandoned library? An old church that contains a horrible secret? Maybe they set up their own hidey-hole in an empty apartment building for whenever they visit the city. Fill out the following template and post it under the thread for the appropriate district:

Name of location:
Description: Be as detailed as you can! What does it look like? What kinds of things might people find here? How easy or difficult is it to discover?

Please bear in mind that we have the right to ask you to revise or alter your location if we feel it deviates too far from the setting.


Since we aim for Farwell to be a collaborative effort among players, people are free to NPC their own rebel characters if they would like. If you have a recurring rebel you would like to play yourself, you may fill out the following template and post it under the appropriate thread:

NPC's Name: Self-explanatory (Bear in mind that this must be an Original Character - canon characters will not be accepted)
Function within Farwell: Do they man a supply post? Dig for supplies? Help manage headquarters? Guard the city wall? Something else?
Personality: Please describe their basic personality.

Please bear in mind that we reserve the right to ask you to alter or revise your NPC if we feel it’s necessary.

Another exciting feature about the NPC characters in Farwell that we'd like to introduce is the fact that we're allowing those people who have dropped characters who made it through the coliseum trial to show up in Farwell as NPC characters who managed to escape the institute and stay holed up in the city.

In other words, if you have a character who went through the coliseum who you dropped, you'd have the option to play them as an NPC in Farwell! However, this is only for characters who fit those criteria and were dropped before this announcement was made (10/9/2012). You wouldn't be able to drop a character now or in the future and then play them as an NPC in Farwell, since we want to avoid people trying to abuse that option.

At the moment, only two people are eligible for this as far as we could remember, and that's Callisto from Xena (played by Lauren) and Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars (played by Jansen). We'll certainly edit this list if other characters who fit these requirements come up. (Note: You'd need to work out with the mods what your dropped character was doing while in Farwell before playing them in any threads. Also, only current players qualify, but players who have previously dropped may become eligible if they decide to apply back into the game with a patient character.)

This is the list of current Farwell NPCS
Descriptions coming soon!

Marc (played by Court)
Lydia Thayer (played by Court)
Obi-Wan Kenobi (played by Jansen)
Callisto (played by Lauren)
Claude Prescott (played by Psyche)

Thank you for your interest in helping us create more monsters to haunt the Institute halls! Below you will find a helpful form to use in submitting your monster ideas and some guidelines about how to post. Once submitted, the Monster NPC mods and the Head Mods must approve your suggestion before it is implemented in part or in full. We will answer your suggestions as soon as we are able, but please understand it may take some time for all parties to review and discuss the information.

1) All monsters must be original creations.
At this time, we are unable to approve any canon monsters. We understand that there has been some interest in bringing in canon-specific monsters, but in the interest of keeping with the current monster roster, they are not allowed for now. However, if there is a sufficient number of requests and interest, this may change at a later date.

2) Questions are allowed in this post with one stipulation.
If you have questions regarding monsters (rather than a suggestion), they are allowed in this post. However, you must put the word QUESTION in the comment title. This is to help the mods distinguish between suggestions and questions, and to help you get your question answered in a timely fashion.

3) Responding to suggestions with suggestions of your own is allowed and encouraged.
We like to get as much input as possible from the players when it comes to creating new monsters, so feel free to step in and talk about the suggestions if you have any constructive input, critique, or additions. Please refrain from writing comments that do not lend any further information toward building the monster, but do let us know if you support the creature as an addition to the current roster!

4) Only players of the game are allowed to post.
Like the rule says, we apologize for any inconvenience, but we are only allowing current players of Damned to post their suggestions here.

If you read and agree to the above, then please proceed to the form below.

This is the official list of the applications that are physically in our inbox once applications have been opened, along with intentions to apply that we've received. DO NOT USE THIS PAGE FOR CLAIMING. This post is simply to hold the list and for reaction comments/squeeing over possible/received apps. All claims must be made over here for the sake of privacy. The list will be by character and series as usual, with a date next to each to indicate when the app was received. There will also be notes next to it to show its status. This will allow you to know if your application has been read already, if a second opinion for it has already been received, and if we're in the process of working on a response. Similarly, we'll make notes if it's pending for one reason or another so you have a better idea of how long the wait will be.

Received Applications )
This page is being enstated as part of our trial open application period. This page is ONLY FOR CLAIMS. Comments are screened. People can comment here with their intent to apply. This is not a requirement, but it's helpful in that it gets the word out that your application will possibly be coming in (along with building up excitement) and also allows someone else to submit an intent to challenge in a timely manner. Even if you submit an intent to apply, you are not required to actually send in the application, though we'd prefer it if people commented only when they were relatively certain that they will be applying.

To make certain that competition is still possible, anyone can also comment here with an intent to challenge. If you see a name on the "Intended Application" or "Received Applicaton" list (over HERE) for a character that you also wish to apply for, you must then comment here letting us know that you are going to challenge that application. If the first application has already been received, you will have one week to get your challenge app in. If it's only an intent, then the time period will depend on when the first application comes in.

If a challenge comes up, the original applicant will be notified that their application has been challenged and that a response to their app may be delayed due to this.

Comments will be screened to hide the identity of applicants and challengers, though feel free to request that your username is shown on the list if you want people to know that it's you. As applications will be opening February 15th, we will be accepting both comments with intent to app and challenges to any listed intented applications now!

As this was requested by multiple people, we've decided to enstate a system where you can request for a switch of roommate if the current match-up isn't working out. However, we have a series of guidelines that need to be followed and requirements that need to be met before this can be allowed, as follows:

Guidelines and Rules )

And here is the form that both players will have to fill out and submit here in order to get a switch approved:

Character's Name: Name ([profile] username_here)
Roommate's Name: Name ([profile] username_here)
Links: Insert at least two links to attempted and/or failed threads, along with chat logs/email logs if there's an issue of unresponsiveness.
Explanation: Describe why you both decided you wanted to switch to different roommates. This can be brief and to the point.
