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.)

[ Anyone from [ profile] holyrelic would recognize the shortstack GM Kain, with his testy expression and his boots propped up on the table in front of him. His arms are crossed and his chair is tilted back on two legs, sunk into the soft soil an inch or so.

He's surrounded by numbered animal pens, and his Relic is on one leg neglected.

In fact, it seems he's long since nodded off.

Do you dare approach and deposit your animals, for fear of waking him? Will you shove him right over, chair and all? Or will you simply poke him with a stick from a safe distance? All are relevant choices in The World. ]

open to all! claiming pen 2

[ The returning Steam Gunner is a little baffled at first-- but he quickly reorients himself when he sits up. It was an area type he hadn't been to in quite a while, usually opting for the darker dungeons or night fields.

He holds up a gloved hand as a shield, violet eyes squinting against the brightness. It'd been about a year in The World, and he still wasn't used to such light.

But the letter bee recognizes all the markers of a Quest when he sees them. The checklist, the brief explanation-- and the GMs, far off. There was no mistaking it.

The silver-haired man gets to his feet and brushes off his navy leather pants. He isn't very good at approaching others, and Miss Amaterasu is nowhere in sight. ]

[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!

[This is not Tokyo.

It takes him a minute to realize where he actually is and Yuuta isn't exactly sure how he feels about it. Surprised, definitely, but happy too as memories of The World come flooding back.

But there's no time to wonder about why he's suddenly back here because it looks like there's a quest going on and his competitive side kicks in immediately. Those prizes, he wants them.

So off he goes.]

[Kirino would be convinced this was a dream if it wasn't entirely too real. He's questioning the practicality of it all, but he might as well go along with it right?

Every now and then, he'll consult his checklist. And so he wanders.]

[there is one (1) larger-than-normal white wolf sitting in the middle of the field, a few feet away from where she woke up, and the big ol' thing has taken to using the checklist to make the best disguise ever.

and it is the best disguise.

because those Lucky Animals won't know what the heck hit 'em when she catches them and takes 'em to their pen.

(note: for said disguise, check out the icon.)]

[So uh, Taiyou doesn't have the faintest idea what's going on, but there are pens and there are animals. That must mean the animals should go into the pens! Unfortunately hospital boy here doesn't realize they're wild animals and is trying to coax the cute Leviathan over as if it was somebody's pet.]

C'mon boy! Girl? Over here!

[Well... the Lucky Animal just kind of stares back. At least it's not running from him.]

Oh, these are really cute!

[ One girl is standing in the field admiring the cute animals running about.

...Oh yeah, she's got to catch them, right? Excuse her while she'll be looking around for the cutest animals. ]

[ grown man in the middle of the field, staring at his list to the Sleipnir running around in front of him and then back down to his list ]

So this... Sleigh-p- uh. Nir. Do I just grab it? I mean, I saw someone kicking one of these lucky things but I can't do that. I mean these are cute and not rabid and a public enemy not like that possum that I- [ scratching his head ] Ok. Actually I do want to kick it because it made this cute sound when that other dude did but then there's this other part of me, still Andy, you know. Just kind of. Good Andy. That's all, no, what would Leslie say?

[Gentaro had spent the last five or so minutes of being awake to look around in awe at his new surroundings, but even more of that time being impressed by his new outfit that was on him. He wasn't exactly hard to impress as it is, so everything was just bewildering to the guy and it took him a bit to actually notice the checklist he had. Gentaro skimmed it over several times, just to make sure he was getting what it meant.]

Lucky animals, huh? No sweat! I've got this!! [He didn't really have this, no matter how much he really thought he did.]

H-huh? Is this a shopping list...? [ it looks like one, not that she's ever been entrusted with one. ]

Um...uu-- what do I do? I don't have a DoReMi rune...

Huh? Wait, that's not right.

O-oh! I'm supposed to feed them...?

[ the unruffled calm of a general is hideously useful when you find yourself in a bright spring field absolutely nowhere near your castle. ]

Capture some monsters? Is that all? A simple task. [ no Beatrix you're not allowed to kill them put your greatsword away. ]

[It's been three minutes or so since this rather feminine Shadow Warlock had awakened to find himself in this green, grassy field. And in those three minutes of sitting and observing his surroundings, Joshua has come to four conclusions.

One, this wasn't Shibuya. Precious few places in Shibuya were this green anymore, and there was no sign of any urban landscape.

Two, he wasn't alone. There seemed to be some sort of game going on. Nothing he was familiar with, but there were other people running about chasing after... small animals. And there were pens, and a piece of paper in his hand. Was he expected to participate?

Three, someone had changed his clothes. They weren't particularly terrible, and he didn't mind the pink-on-white motif, but the style of the clothing wasn't the most flattering thing. Like someone had combined a pastel Lapin Angelique ensemble with some Sheep Heavenly pants, then had removed any bit containing frills or lace. An... interesting thought, really.

Four, someone had taken his cell phone. And had replaced it with some sort of steampunk-style touchscreen device. Not only had someone manhandled him enough to change his clothes without him noticing, but they had also stolen the one thing he never goes anywhere without.

This had better be a strange dream spawned by sleep-deprivation. Or something he ate.

As it is, he's still sitting in the grass, peering at both the strange list and the... somewhat odd-looking animals. And the prizes. Those look like they would go well with his current outfit. Yes, despite the irritation at his current situation, and despite the fact that it might just be a dream? That is enough of an incentive to participate. Besides, it looks like it might even be a little fun...]

[This young Shadow Warlock looks rather nonplussed as she makes her way through the field at a steady pace, but that may be because of the Dark Goat stubbornly dogging her heels.

She doesn't look back at the Animal, but doesn't slow down either.

... She may be leading it in large circles.]
