test drive meme

the test drive meme

It's a new day in The World, and a special quest is abound. But wait, the players cry! The game isn't open yet! Shush you, the GMs warned. This is only a test drive meme.

The game is simple. You've woken up in a lush field of grass, soft to the touch and a little damp with dew. Spring has reached The World, and there's a randomized checklist in your hand. Your goal is to catch five of the Lucky Animals bounding about, and it's perfectly fine to work together. In fact, we encourage it!

Collect them all and deposit them in a pen where the GMs await. There's plenty for everyone, but they will be watching closely for cheaters. Any items won in this pre-game minigame will carry over once [community profile] holyrelic opens, so get your limited edition item set today!

Magnificent prizes await you, so go forth! Just beware; some of the Lucky Animals aren't really so lucky and have their own side effects.

(All participants who apply will receive a mochi hat of the player's choosing. They can be either small (think mini tophats) or large (like a harvest cleric's hat) and any of the three colors, with any variety of accessories.

All participants who finish the quest will earn a spring-themed beginner item set! It will include one weapon and a bonus item set with five restoratives, five randomized buff spells, and five randomized food items.)

[It doesn't take long for Pit to adjust to his new surroundings; he's pretty much used to winding up in strange places without warning at this point.

After rolling about in the grass a bit (hey, it's dewy! Gotta enjoy yourself where you can, right?!) he sits up, taking everything in nice and slow before going over his checklist with a soft hum]

Oh, a treasure hunt? Hmmm... It's not like I have to raise it to some crazy intensity this time... Okay, let's do it! This'll be a piece of cake!
greaterspeed: (Where do I stop it's all a blur)

[personal profile] greaterspeed 2012-04-01 07:24 am (UTC)(link)
[nice and slow? Fat chance of that happening with this speedster around! Without warning, a sudden gust of wind comes flying through the area and knocking out a Moon Rabbit along the way]

Aha~ Lose you once, shame on me, but twice?! Better luck next time!

[seems someone's getting used to the whole body change thing. Though he still looks a little unsteady on his feet]

No sweat.

[personal profile] shiningascent 2012-04-01 07:29 am (UTC)(link)
Whoa! What the--

[he could swear he lost a few feathers from that highspeed gust-- no matter, they'd grow back. Still--]

Heh heh, nice catch! Say, how many have you got so far?!

[not interested in being left behind, Pit's taking out his Gunner weapons, taking a more 'traditional' hunting approach to this quest...]
greaterspeed: (And I won't give in won't compromise)

WTF i thought I pushed 'post comment'

[personal profile] greaterspeed 2012-04-01 08:16 am (UTC)(link)
[he dusts off some dirt from his pants (PANTS can you believe it?) before looking up]

... Yo, didn't see ya there! [salute] As for me... [the points at the rabbit]
He's the first one I've gotten so far. Gotta get used to running 'round like this first, y'know?

[huff!] Man, new worlds are fine and all, but a little warning about the species change would have been nice too.
shiningascent: <user site="" user="kuiper""> (+ angel land or bust)

happens to the best of us! :Db

[personal profile] shiningascent 2012-04-02 02:35 am (UTC)(link)
[Pit is more experienced in removing pants than putting them on BUT OKAY THEN]

Species change? You mean you don't usually look like this?

[He'd concentrate more on your appearance, but Pit's always been a walk-and-talk sort of guy-- give him a moment to fire a stunning shot at a passing Gold Bird]

Hah! O-oh, I hope that's within the rules...
greaterspeed: (Where do I stop it's all a blur)

[personal profile] greaterspeed 2012-04-02 02:57 am (UTC)(link)
[Pit, Pit no. Not the hot springs]

Nah, you crazy? I'm a hedgehog. [point] All cool and blue.

[and it's okay, WE ARE boys MEN OF ACTION and Sonic'll just BOOSTSLIDE and kick that bird now] Gotcha!

And if it isn't, we'll just catch another one. S'not like they're too fast.

[he says as the bird just clucks and struggles in Sonic's arms. It... it's like collecting small animals for Chao. ;; ]

[I'm a hot springs expert, Sonic!!]

I feel kinda bad since he's so tiny, but... [imitating a feminine voice here-- Palutena?] But hey, if it's for a quest, we've gotta do what we've gotta do!

Or, that's what Lady Palutena would say! Let's go drop this little guy off!
greaterspeed: (There is no way to stop me)


[personal profile] greaterspeed 2012-04-02 03:20 am (UTC)(link)

Way ahead of you. [and yes, Sonic's already walking towards one of the pens, unhappy bird in arms]

[Pit, there's a pink-haired kid running by and chasing after a High Wolf, trying to catch it.

... Except he doesn't really seem to be doing a good job.]
Hey! Get back here!

[Maybe he could use some help?]
shiningascent: <user site="" user="kuiper""> (+ a flash of light)

[personal profile] shiningascent 2012-04-02 02:42 am (UTC)(link)
[If he didn't live with such a vivid-maned goddess already, he'd wonder about that hair colour, but... now's not the time! It's time to catch some animals, so Pit starts running ahead to cut it off]

I've got him, I've got him! Get ready to catch him, okay!?

H-here boy! Hey! Be a good doggie and stop running!

[Kirino's ready to lunge for that wolf--and he'll be doing so in three...

... two...

... one!]
shiningascent: <user site="" user="kuiper""> (+ bullseye!)

[personal profile] shiningascent 2012-04-02 02:55 am (UTC)(link)
Got him!! [And Pit grabs onto its legs just to make sure it's down!]

Nice work! You're pretty fast, heh heh!
doingthemistything: (7)

[personal profile] doingthemistything 2012-04-02 02:58 am (UTC)(link)
Thanks! And thanks for the help. [Kirino grins.]

Now, time to put this guy in one of the pens... Could you help me make sure he doesn't escape?
shiningascent: <user site="" user="kuiper""> (+ angel land or bust)

[personal profile] shiningascent 2012-04-02 03:21 am (UTC)(link)
Hey, no problem! There's strength in numbers, right? Let's go take him back together!

[Have an encouraging smile back, Kirino. Want him to carry that wolf for you? The little guy's stronger than he looks!]
doingthemistything: (‡ Nebel)

[personal profile] doingthemistything 2012-04-02 03:29 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah! [That might be a good idea, actually! This wolf's heavier than it looks.] I'm Kirino, by the way.

[Nearby, there's a girl. There's been a girl for a while, steadily and silently watching you roll in the grass.

[> Feel slightly creeped on

Pause. The girl's presence had not been unnoticed, and Pit even watches back for a moment once he catches on that she's been staring. Whoops, that's a little awkward]

Oh! Um, hi there! Are you here for the quest too?
iseedollpeople: (Moe uguu soul eater.)

[personal profile] iseedollpeople 2012-04-09 01:42 am (UTC)(link)
[She just tilts her head and, after a moment, nods. But she's not watching his face.]

The wings. Did they give them to you?
shiningascent: <user site="" user="kuiper""> (Default)

[personal profile] shiningascent 2012-04-09 01:45 am (UTC)(link)
Huh? Oh, you mean these guys? [He flaps them for her a couple of times. They don't look very... flightworthy.]

Nope! I've always had 'em! Pretty cool, right?
