Glitch's Clothing Contest (FINISHED) RESULTS!Glitch's Clothing Contest (FINISHED)2 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Everyone's entry was REALLY GREAT! You all really had outstanding ideas ;u; I loved all of the entries and it was so much fun seeing all of the different clothing designs. Thank you so much for entering my contest - it was a lot of fun, especially being the third one to run for clothing!! But! The cash needs delivery, so let's see the rankings...
This design was SUPER creative and stood out as the most original. It fits his species and personality, as well as his aesthetic interests while still being fun to look at. The concept behind it is adorable and creative and the 404 on the back of the jacket is a nice touch.
This costume definitely hits the majority of his interests! The cloak design is very sleek and interesting, and the glowing bottom half of the outfit is a nice touch, especially with how much he likes glows. The c

EVENT: National HuntEdit: Deadline was pushed from 25th to the 30thEVENT: National Hunt1 year ago in Personal More Like This
From time to time, there is an issue within Gula that gains national attention. A rare monster known as, "The Golden Boar", makes an appearance usually during the summer months. It is a vicious creature that tends to not only mess up the jungle with its trampling, but it also tends to eat almost anything in its way. It would not be such a problem if it was just one boar, but instead there is often a large group that goes wandering about and causing a commotion. In groups, the largest boar with the biggest tusks is usually the one in charge, and getting rid of him will make the group fall apart into a state of chaos, making it easier to take care of. Out of amusement, the Overlord of Gula has made the hunting of these boar into a competition with all nations invited to partake in dealing with them. Who will get rid of the most? Gula? Or some other nation? A surprise may come for the winning nation....

Pope Julius II, who followed in reign after the death of Rodrigo Borgia and Pope Pius III, had long since been an ally to the assassins. Having formed the Holy League, he repeatedly opposed the ambitions of the Templars, and it was his iron fist that ensured the defeat of the French at the Battle of Ravenna in April 1512, thus destroying the last true foothold the Templars had in Italia.
But in February 1513, Pope Julius II passed.
This has left the assassin’s without their Papal allies, and has given the French - and thus the Templars - a possible opening to besiege Italia once again.
However, before plans can be made, information must be gathered.
The order has heard rumour that the Doge of Venice - Leonardo Loredan - is conspiring with the Templars and King Louis of France himself. Since 1503, t

Overlord of Lust
Key Vassal: Lazerus
The real land is actually quite barren. Within a light forest, it almost looking like one of those old villages that have been abandoned centuries ago. It is similar to the weather within a forest--- cooler within the shade of the trees. (Which is best, for the Overlord doesn't particularly like the sun or hot days despite the temperature reaching high heights in the summertime)
Though the thing that makes it special is a specific plant that grows in abundance. Shining with blue brilliance, the flower “Sommortis” emits a pollen into the air which has hallucinogenic qualities to it. Whomever inhales the pollen, is automatically shown what they want to see. (It does not show you things that are not there, just enhances what is already materialized to that person’s preferences)

PR stands for "Prerequisite," meaning the student must have completed and passed the listed class(es).
How are classes chosen?
At the beginning of the quarter, you update your application with the classes you wish your student to take. Your student can take a maximum of three (3) classes in an Otherworlde year. A year is three months of real life time. But be careful, make sure you have the time for those classes!
What is an assignment and how do I get it?
Assignments are posted by the teachers in the assignments journal every month, on the first of the month. The students taking that class are listed under the class, and you turn in your assignment by submitting it to the group, then posting it onto the journal with the name of the student and the class. The teacher will update the assignment list to show you finished your assignm

Infirmary Cleanup Activity!Everett says:Infirmary Cleanup Activity!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ah... Good afternoon. I'm here today to address an issue I'm sure many of you (the accident-prone ones in particular) have already noticed. The infirmary in the mansion that was previously shut down is barely functioning at the moment. We have approximately ten inches of floor space that is properly cleaned enough to see the floor colour. Various boxes (of medicine, one would hope) are unlabelled and lying around everywhere, every bed is splattered with crusted old blood and just last week we had an incident with one of the gurneys flipping itself over on a patient.
It goes without saying that this is not an appropriate recovery environment.
Though the hosts and tutors as well as the mentors have been working to chip away at the mess, we also have other duties, and getting it properly up and running appears to be a bit out of our hands. This, as you can imagine, might be an issue for those of you who lose your mouth tournament round.
