Tis the season, you guys! Can’t you just smell Christmas in the air? Or... if you don’t celebrate, how about 'holidays'? Can you smell those in the air? (hint: they smell like winter) We’ve got a lot of fun stuff planned for you guys this holiday season! We’re hoping our generosity will brighten everyone’s spirits around these coming busy days!
Our Monthly Announcements
NOVEMBER'S TOP POSTERS
1st Place: @bramble with 15 posts.
2nd Place: @holiday with 14 posts.
3rd Place: @monarch with 12 posts.
SPOTLIGHT PLAYER: Mykie
- Mykie has been consistent, active, and involved both IC and OOC. I've definitely noticed that her writing has evolved over time and I have really enjoyed reading her posts with Dante.
- I'm very happy that we have a member like Mykie apart of our site! Not only is she constantly a helping figure and a kind, and interesting, person to talk to, but, she's very active on the forum as well! She brings forth interesting characters, dynamics, and plots to the site!
PERSONAL PLOT: Karma & Be'khatsa
- [Their] threads keep me laughing and amused as they work to untangle the complicated feelings of an oaf and ice queen.
- I'm an absolute sucker for the theme of opposites attracting, and these two, despite being cut from the same coin, are pretty opposite. Seeing Be' cracking down Karma's icy walls and her growing to acknowledge her emotions because of him is fantastic!
CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT: Dizzybird
- There has been a huge power shift with Dizzybird suddenly coming into power as a Boss. All of the changes he is putting through with the Crabs is completely altering the dynamic of the gang, which could bring about some absolutely delicious tea.
- It has been very interesting to see Dizzybird in a position of power and what Sammiie has planned for him and the Crabs (nka the Eyes!) is exciting and engaging. I feel that he has transformed from the strange healer to the cult leader, and I'm excited to see more from him.
FAN FAVORITE: Morgana
- I loved her since I read her app! And I love her even more reading her posts! She is so fun to read and is played so well. I can't wait 'till I can thread with her.
- Her look + her personality and character makeup just hit me right in the witchdoctor-feels. There's really nothing to say other than I like her because of the witchy / mysterious / spiritual themes about her!
THREAD: Between Saints and Sinners
You can read it here!
- I think it highlights the struggles of the Saints well and is a little humbling to see them all licking their wounds and rallying. It shows a more vulnerable side the smart asses don't generally show off or make known.
- An unlikely ally! Who would've thought the proud Saints needed help of all things? Seeing the drama that this'll bring forth as well as opening interactions between two totally opposite gangs, this thread has a lot of promise, and shifts the plot of the site tremendously!
"As far as I am concerned, you are clothed in nothing but your own strength, and that's what everyone follows. That beacon." - @reaper
- Everyone always says that Karma's white coat is a beacon. But Reaper sees the aura she is cloaked in as her beacon, not just her coat.
- This quote is so poetic, and seeing someone like Reaper of all dogs saying it makes it all the more sweeter! It's such a cool quote!
November's Topsite Voter Champ
Congratulations to two-time winner @croft ! We’ve gifted you 2x Contact Lens items from the Barc Shop as your prize. Thank you so much for voting, and good luck to our next month’s winner!
Major Update to Skill Points Coming Soon
After a year-long battle of trying to find the perfect balance of making Skill Points easier to obtain while making them interesting to our members, we’re jumping the gun on this one. We’ve got plans to replace them with a much simpler system and cut out the need for accumulating points and such. That, and it’ll make ranking up loads easier and will hopefully cut out all the stuff that people find confusing with the system overall!
We’ll still be keeping the Instant Rank-Up Barc Shop item, since it’s still relevant to what we have in mind! Plus, you know, it’s a super easy way to rank-up if you’ve got the Kibble! c:
NEW EARNING KIBBLE PROMPTS
We’ve added a few more in-character ways to collect some bonus Kibble in your threads! Check em out on the Kibble page!
NEW PERSONAL BOARD LINK
There’s a new place in your player (or character) profile to link your Personal Board, should you want to! Completely optional, but it might make it easier to find for you
