Convergence (OOC)

#ShowerThoughts, how about an RP centered around the events in other parts of the city while a city/region/global event is occurring.

In one of my storylines, my main, Galrithius, gains the ability to enact Convergence, basically the zombie apocalypse, with icicle shooting, darkness spewing, and fire breathing zombies, undead knights, massive bone beasts, and all kinds of fun horrors. But, the events central to that are so specific.

Think of it like the stories surrounding Hurricane Atlas, a family being saved here and a villain trying to take advantage there. There could be a number of vignettes or a cohesive sidestory taking place outside the red-skied Halloween event ;)

Wanna give it a try? Hopefully it can be interesting enough but also not overly reliant on the Convergence storyline.

Thanks, desviper!

Thanks, desviper!

This is a fun sort of thread! Done this a number of times, and it's easy and low-stress on the participants. Helpful if the thread originator/GM does wrap it up at some point for closure, but the thread can run for a couple of months, easily. The intro post gives a helpful view into what's going on, thanks.

I've got three mostly separate characters to play in this one. I will start thinking and slip in posts as I get them ready. :)
- Gayle Force (the pop star wind controller)
- Shanikali (the FBSA Supervising Agent, Sheena)
- Kartanian (the notorious and lovable rogue)

Welcome aboard!

Decided I'll focus on a now-defected Chiasma, and add undead creatures to the background as seems called for

Heather Kowalski, in addition

Heather Kowalski, in addition to being a newly-minted Detective with the TCPD, is also a Gydhja of Freya, a goddess who has among a rather broad portfolio charge over half of the honored dead. Unfortunately those were standard police issue full metal jacket slugs. If they don't work, she'll break out her own special ammo. ^_^

Heather is thinking holy ground is their best bet. And since her parent's live up over by Reinhardt Park, she'll take any holy ground she can find.

This actually seems pretty nifty, I may actually try my hand at joining in if that's alright. Sounds right up McJigg's ally. When you say this could be small number of vignettes, do you multiple scenes going on at once or one small story at a time?

Generally, not a problem.

Generally, not a problem. Often, you can double post in a way that the second post adds something helpful to the story/plot/action. If you're running the thread, then you often have to post updates; especially when there is a lull in the posting.

If you're just waiting on others to take action, then an OOC post or a private message to poke them can work.

So I linked McJigg's profile

So I linked McJigg's profile as it was written in March 2018. I'm not editing it at the moment because I don't want it to seem like I wrote a character for this, it just truly is the kind if event he'd be good at dealing with. I will note as I've refined him over the past few months I've removed his ability to effortlessly talk with the dead. That ended up feeling excessive and difficult to keep in line with the rest of the CoT universe. We don't need a character who could ask every murder victim who killed them.

Because he sees magic I'm going to jump to conclusions a lot, please don't assume I'm trying to dictate what's actually happening.

To clarify, these undead don

To clarify, these undead don't normally speak, but McJigg sounds like he regularly converses with the dead, so I don't see why Servi would be immune.

Sorry, Foridain, if I threw you off burning the church, but Necrobians are huge anti-church radicals. So churches, especially catholic would be prime targets.

I guess they consider an Episcopalian church to be next worst.

But, no you had the fiery undead, and a church, it was to be expected. OTOH, a church made of stone or steel would fare much better than one of wood. So, what was this one made of?

BTW, can Chiasma and Detective Kowalski see (and maybe hear) the Black Robed Figure?

And many good thoughts towards your Female Parental Unit, Kartanian!

I guess I worded "engulfed in flames" not "burnt to the ground", so it could still be standing.

I'm picturing about half a block away, so see, yes, hear, probably not.

I'd say there's one panel on McJigg's side, and a response from Jackie, then we'll wait.

I guess it's technically autoing to say heather is opening fire with Chiasma, but idk.

It felt weird saying Chaisma would open fire and she'd stand there. Would it be better to go

"Chaisma quickly opens fire on the charging undead..." and wait for the next turn?

I think so, yes.

BTW, that's a ten round magazine she just put in,and she's aiming for a headshot. If she connects, and if it works, she'll shift to any undead that are still active.

Maybe an interesting twist, Jackie was recruited from the Black Rose, and was before a rough kid trying to get by in the city. Healther might have run across Jackie as an officer or detective.

Added the backstory link so you can get an idea of what's happening far to the northeast. I'm intending for the Diaspora ending, since freeing Giatia is pretty hard.

Jackie could have a last words moment, but he's injured beyond simpler healing magic, but maybe Healther or McJigg have some powerful spells.

The zombies can act without him, following orders form afar.
