Hello, everyone! For Virtua, we are testing a new death deadline procedure. It will function as follows:

The first rolls are below. As usual, there are three days to play cards. Two weeks from now, we will conduct the second rolls. Again, three days for cards. However, the first roll's deaths are not due until three days before the third rolls (where we also have the first announcement). In other words, every roll's deadline spans two sets of rolls. Since there are two sets of deaths in progress at any time, and one coming due at each roll, the rate is exactly the same as for the other Minis, beyond the first month. Handlers also get enough time to pull together better scenes. Of course, since the time for deaths is effectively being doubled across the board, extensions will be granted only for severe issues (tragedy, natural disaster, complete inability to access the internet) spanning at least a week in length. Extensions beyond a week will not be granted except through unanimous staff approval (where "unanimous" means "no objections among those staff who weigh in within a reasonable time"). Deaths that go over the deadline but are in before the announcement/midmonths will be disqualified from any contests. Deaths that are later than that will be grabbed by Help and handled by the staff with the greatest possible expedience.

We do realize that a handler could, theoretically, have to juggle two deaths at once, if they are rolled two rolls straight. However, they would have two solid, uninterrupted weeks for each death (still more than at present), and only have to work on both for the two in the middle. More than that, we already have people owing multiple deaths at once, due to being slow and having characters on various boards/Minis/AUs. We believe that, with extra time, it will be quite manageable.

If a killer is holding you up, please inform the staff ASAP, and we will see what we can do.

A diagram of the rolling schedule:

December 1: 1st rolls
December 16: 2nd rolls (midmonths)
December 29: 1st rolls due
January 1: 3rd rolls/1st announcement
January 14: 2nd rolls due
January 16: 4th rolls (midmonths)
January 29: 3rd rolls due
Feburary 1: 5th rolls/2nd announcement

And so on.

A diagram is present below, with the rolls color-coded as follows:
Time frame for deaths from the first rolls is red
Time frame for deaths from the second rolls is blue
Time frame for deaths from the third rolls is yellow
Time frame for deaths from the fourth rolls is green
Time frame for deaths from the fifth rolls is purple

Pretend like the dates match what it says above. I lost the old photoshop file and really don't wanna take the time to tweak it all to be perfect.





Anyways, with that out of the way, here are the very first rolls of Virtua:

1. Kenneth Danielson (chitoryu12)
2. Vivian Cathwell (CondorTalon) - Vienna Gogh (Acidic, Hero Card used)
3. Simon Leroy (KamiKaze)
4. Lena Lazarus (shining knight) - Richard Ormsby (KillerVole, Hero Card used)
5. Patrick Reynolds (kervin555)

Three days for cards, until the end of the 28th (GMT) for deaths.

Also, since we've got a lot of new people, an etiquette reminder: please do not PM handlers requesting death rights for rolled characters unless the handler in question has asked for ideas to be sent. It's really annoying to get a boatload of PMs when you've already got plans, and most people deny deaths to preemptive requesters anyways.
Current characters:

Well, phooey. But it isn't like Asshole wasn't asking to get murdered. XD

Right now I'm already discussing death ideas with peepz, so he just might be already taken. Sorry!

Oh damn. Might as well ask for death ideas, I guess. I already had one in mind but it's a bit early in this character's arc for it to happen. Well, whatever arc existed before I got rolled, anyway.

Oh well, PM me away!


Patrick's taken! Await the death, starting soon...

Welp.

This is kind of a downer for me, considering I had quite a plot planned for Vivian. If anyone is willing to hero, it'd be much appreciated. I'm planning to use my swap if no heroes come... so, something to think about. I'm actually debating whether or not I'm going to actually do this, but a hero is still appreciated.

The chart/schedule lists the announcements being monthly starting on 01 January 2012. My question is: What is the frequency and timing of the announcements in the game, that is, from the point of view of the characters?

Thanks in advance.

In this case, every 12 hours.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by that.

If you mean five characters rolled/announcement, it may change, a la the main board, or may stay contant. That all depends on the speed of the RP, overall activity, etc.

I meant "the same as TV was in theory" - that is, every month/"month" there are 2 sets of rolls and 1 announcement lasting 12 hours IC.

Oh yeah, and another question: what time of day are the IC announcements?

Getting rolled out first things is no fun at all, especially after getting rolled out, like, second in TV.

Heroing Richard Orsmby for Lena Lazarus. :)

This one's been in the works for a while, so no PMs, please.
