Chapter 6: The Edge of Dawn
This is the sixth chapter of our sitewide plot! To move on, we need the available threads to be signed up for and completed by our members!
Each gang has its own thread sign-ups page -- go to your character's corresponding gang page to sign up for a plot thread or nab an open prompt! If it's a shared plot point between two gangs, you might be directed to a different page to ensure there's no conflict or overlapping sign-ups! For any questions, please direct them to the #help channel on our Discord or reach out to staff!
A Few Important Reminders...
- Sitewide Plot threads (ones you had to sign up for) should be prioritized! The quicker these move along, the quicker we can move the plot along!
- You are allowed to sign up for multiple threads with multiple characters, but please ensure the events in this timeline don't clash with your characters' timelines!
- All replies in the second posting round will be subject to our limited posting window. Each person will have 5 days to reply before they can be skipped!
- If you're a thread leader, it's your responsibility to start the thread and keep it going! Don't let it get stuck on one person for two weeks; remember the limited posting window! Don't be afraid to tag people in the #tag-ur-it channel to remind them to post!
- Threads that are the direct result of another will go in chronological order with the next thread only being created after the other is nearly completed.
- Please make sure to mark plot threads with the new "P!" tag so we all know it's a sitewide plot thread!
- Asterisk (*) indicates player is willing to start the thread
To sign up for a thread, please check that it has a "Participants" section listed beneath it. If it does, it's a thread you can sign up for! Please fill out the form below for each thread you'd like to sign up for.
[b]Thread Date: [/b]
[b]Short Description of Thread: [/b] (applicable only if there's multiple threads on the same date, let us know which thread you're signing up for!)

Please wait until a Staff Member gives you the OK to start a plot thread!
Though the loss of their home is still a recent, sore wound for them, the Saints don’t have time to mourn. It’s rumored that Karma’s finally found a home that will suit them, and just in time! It seems that the Eyes’ once warm invitation to ‘bunk’ with them on the beach isn’t so warm anymore.
But...what’s this about Karma’s ulterior motives? It seems that the White Devil herself has finally started to make her dark wish come true, little by little…
MAY 04: Karma leads the gang off of the beach and back into Blood Village. Whether they’ve been kicked out or they willingly left is up for debate, but it seems she has somewhere in mind. After what seemed like endless walking, they finally come to their destination; their new home!
- PARTICIPANTS: Open (no sign-up required)
OPEN PROMPT: Have a thread where your characters gets ‘settled’ into their new home! It needs to still be cleaned out a bit, and there’s plenty parts of it that are unexplored! Maybe spend a lazy day getting used to it, or claiming a section as their own sleeping quarters...or, on the contrary, maybe your character doesn’t like their new home?
MAY 10: A big hunting party is put together under Karma’s wishes. She’s made her instructions very clear: Bring home something big, and don’t come home until you do. It’ll be a long trek, but going up to Black Mountain is a must.
OPEN PROMPT (MAY 10): Your character among others has been specifically told by Karma to not eat today. It seems that all dogs are putting forth effort today to bring a meal home. But, that’s hard to do when heaps of perfectly good food are just sitting there, right? Have a thread where your character tries to steal a bite to eat! Be careful not to get caught though!
MAY 11: At the early crack of dawn, Karma calls her gang to her for a meeting. Finally, the boss opens up about her plans - and her most recent one, and why she’s taken such an interest in Yardie territory as of late: It’s time for the Saints to take over Richardson.
- PARTICIPANTS: Open (no sign-up required)
MAY 12: A Yardie Scout heads to Richardson for a routine patrol, expecting nothing out of the ordinary. What they’re met with instead is the White Devil herself! Karma sends them home with a disturbing message.
OPEN PROMPT (MAY 12 to MAY 30): It’s time to make Richardson 'officially’ belong the the Saints. Mark over the Yardies borders, chase them out of their own territory, pillage its resources - there’s much to be done!
MAY 16: Almost ironically similar to the same tactic used by the Yardies themselves on the Dodgers only two months ago, a raid is formed by a group of Saints to ‘hit up’ a restaurant in Richardson and bring the rewards home. What better way to show that a place is yours than reaping its rewards?
MAY 27: On a patrol of her own, Karma and few of her Saints are more than surprised when they come across the Queen of the Slums herself, who looks quite pissed at the Saints’ bold move. They stop Daire’s patrol, and tell her to leave, she’s trespassing. As one can expect, things only go downhill from there. It’s about to be an all-out turf war!

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can I have threads based off the events happening this chapter?
A: Absolutely! These are what we call "spin-off threads"! In fact, with so many big events going on in this chapter, we recommend that you do! We'd still love for players to engage in the plot events even if they didn't sign any of their characters up for any of the plot threads!
Q: Can I sign up for multiple plot threads?
A: As long as you can post regularly to them, yes! And don't worry about being a thread hog! We usually are short on sign-ups, rather than threads!
Q: My thread partner hasn't posted in the 5-day window. Can I skip them? Will they be annoyed with me?
A: Yes, you can skip them! We encourage you to skip them to keep the thread going. Don't worry about them being annoyed with you - they shouldn't be! They signed up for the thread knowing the posting window and what happens when they can't make a post within that time frame.
We're so glad that everyone here is so polite! If you're very concerned with angering someone, you can always shoot them a PM or a DM, some reminder that they're nearing the end of the posting window and ask whether they're able or planning to post. Chances are, you'll get the greenlight to skip them or you'll get a confirmation that they'll send in a post within the next day or so.
However, if someone has mentioned that they will post, but hasn't and it's been a week or more, you've got the greenlight from us to post to keep your thread going. Your thread partner can pick up where they left off in the next posting round!
