Mansion Foyer: Guest SocializationDrake says:Mansion Foyer: Guest Socialization2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Well hello there, guests... there are so many of you who have entered the mansion, and we certainly hope you are fitting in comfortably and having a good time at our lovely mansion. I hope the flying eyeballs haven't dive bombed you too much, and that none of the floorboards have tried to eat you. Not excessively at least.
Anyway, the goal of this journal post is to bring all of the new (and old) members together and help introduce all of you to each other. Please read the below and comment on this journal if you're interested!

Ah, look! The leaves fall all red around the forest, and the beings that inhabit it are getting active, collecting everything they will need for the winter.
But... wait! Where is all the food? The one that was in the kitchen, stocked for winter...?
And the blankets!? And the cushions!? Where's all the stuff that's gonna keep us warm!?
This isn't FUNNY.
You guys will have to RESPOND for this. I want my sheets back. Now I only have my scar--- WHERE'S MY SCARF!?
Okay, this is enough! I bet it was all the creatures' fault! The ones in the forest that don't want to have their butts frozen! I shall then offer... a reward! Yes, you heard it right! A reward to those that go into the forest and recover the blankets that have been stolen!
But beware, because it's a dangerous place. Dangerous indeed.
You'll have to...

Mouth Tournament: Round Four
The shadow host, Drake, cackles as he looks over the remaining entrants. So many have fought and lost and only the bravest are left. But even they shall find an enemy both in their opponent and the world they're about to face.
Hehe... hehehe... heheh... well, I certainly hope you won't have any issue with the location of the fourth round. We'll remain in the Training Grounds, but I'll be taking you to the shadow realm's version of the room. If you're not yet familiar with the shadow realm... well, you will be now.
It's a world in grayscale, where jet black shadows burst from the ground like mines. Don't step on one - though you might be able to hear it before it bursts; they always gives off a faint rattling sound before they explode. You can see into the real training room (grayscale

Greetings, guests! My name is Drake -- if you haven't yet met me, I'm one of the mansion's hosts (the sexy one). I hope everything's coming along well for all of you and your socks haven't been eating too many of your possessions. But anyway! I'm here to bring you a little activity -- a simple one!
ACTIVITY: Sign up on this journal if you'd like to be paired with another guest to draw your partner's character in swim wear!
That's right, folks, the pool parties are still going on (and for the love of the Eye, stop eating the pool decorations) and it's considered... socially inappropriate to jump in the pool with your clothes on, so how about allowing another guest to design some swimwear for you?
Sound fun? Simply write a comment here on this journal and you'll be paired up on Friday - the

If someone else does it, I might take a video of me cosplaying Drake because I have all the components and all the bacon.

Infirmary Cleanup Activity!Everett says:Infirmary Cleanup Activity!1 year 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.
What we'd like to do is recruit

Drake, I told you to leave that doll alone--- I mean, hello, lovely guests! I'm Phil, updating what goes on this charming place. There haven't been many updates lately, have they...?
*playing with a Phillip voodoo doll* I think they might all be busy with that recent outbreak in the Beast Zoo... it's been a lot more pressing than taking control of the weekly announcements, I guess...
Well, maybe... But anyway, we need to let them know what happens before they find anything weirder than normal, without announcement, don't we?
Right... there's a lot to report too, such as the fact that SOMEONE took my bacon out of the fridge last Thursday, and that SOMEONE is going to be... put to Hiemsian justice... in the most heinous of ways...
Ugh, that's awful. I mean, for you. The justice part sounds pretty interesting to me. But whatever. Let me tell t

The Hiems MansionThe dawn illuminated the massive mansion’s entrance with its green light. The bursts of blue fire along the door flickered out one by one as the still pale sun lightened the tongue-shaped walkway. The light filled the cracks in the mansion’s dark gray and purple walls.The Hiems Mansion1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The Eye’s massive spherical shape lazily turned until it faced a red haired boy standing below it. He tensed, recalling how so many people had vanished from that mysterious place before. He feared it was the very mansion to blame. The pupil of the huge eyeball shifted to its normal purple color, bright in the early light, and glanced off toward another part of the mansion.
He was worried. What if, bringing the guests to the mansion, he was only sealing their doom? Will the innocent people that were seeking for pleasant vacations be engulfed by the mansion's enigmas as well?
He wanted to believe they were all
The World Train 3rd Opening + RaffleYou've heard of it as a myth. A whisper of magic in the air that speaks of a train that defies all logic and reason. It is one of a kind. It will only be found if it wants to. It is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. It is a safe haven for those who have no where else to go. It is open to innocent and the guilty. Only those of pure evil are unable to enter.The World Train 3rd Opening + Raffle5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Now, the train has docked in your dimension, visible only to the inhuman and the magical. It is now ready to be entered and ready to bring you on a new adventure.
As the train has just arrived, it does need time to be fixed and cleaned up due to the strain of travelling through wormholes and being attacked. In the mean time, you have a chance to freshen up. The train has become increasingly picky when it comes to who it allows into its ranks and who is not.
Till July 31st, application checks will be available. Just drop off your application on the group's front page and the attendants (maybe even the

The kelpie had been sitting at the large, plush seat behind his desk until all of the students trickled into the room, pinprick pupils flicking from body to body until they all situated themselves into their seats. With a slight smile, he rose and strolled to the front of the room, movements sleek and graceful.
"Hmmm... So many students. Hello. I am Professor Razik, one of the two teachers for General Education. It is pleasant to see so many familiar faces, what from other classes or the Meet-the-Teachers event..." His amused expression shifts to a rather warning one, ears pressing back against his head as he purrs out, voice low and stern, "I expect to be given your respect and attention while you are in my classroom, and in return I will help and assist you in any way that I am able. Feel free to approach me outside of class, be it in my office or about campus, and I will be more than glad to give you some of my time. Alright?"

Hey, Ev, how often have you seen the new guests? I feel like they got eaten by something! You have any thoughts for how to get them out of their rooms? I was thinking of smoke bombs. :iconheplz:
Ahh-- They've been around, I'm sure, Drake. You've been distracted. No smoke bombs. Hair's been growing all over the walls, perhaps it's been sealing doors shut, as well. ... Hm. Perhaps we should be devising a rescue team more so than an assault.
Really? I was under the impression they were just hiding in their rooms. Wow, I wonder why they haven't starved yet, then? Maybe I should shadow in to some rooms... Anyone need help out of their rooms? Speak up!

EVENT: The Grand FestivalEdit: Giving an extensionnn.EVENT: The Grand Festival1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Historically, every couple of years the Overlords get together regardless of their relationships with each other to throw a festival for the masses. Rumor has it, that such a jovial occasion is for nefarious purposes, but what the public doesn’t know won’t hurt them. This time, the kingdom of Ira has volunteered to organize such an event with the usual food, and entertainment to enrapture the people whilst the Overlords enjoy each other’s company. Performances by skilled performers will take place in the town square of the Bahram district, along with food eating contests, games, dancing, and all around cheer. Despite the easy atmosphere, be careful not to be caught doing something you shouldn’t by a guard. They will be fairly relaxed and not as likely to pounce on someone, but do be watchful. There’s always those workaholics.
Since Ira in general is hot during the day, most of the festivities will be happening at night w
