Winter, 18th Turn, 11th Pass

Upcoming Flights/Runs:
Red Ingoth

Upcoming Hatchings:

Winter is in full swing as the Northwest reaches the middle stages of the cold month, and Dalibor, taking full advantage of a crackdust filled break in Threadfall, is back at it again. Delving into the Southern ice and snow, they have paired with Grove Weyr to fully explore the lands they only slightly uncovered the previous turn during the Jungle Expedition. This, however, will not be a warm and relaxing waltz through the woods; although was it ever that to begin with?

 The Magical Candidate Vending Machine
 Posted: Jul 26 2016, 11:36 PM

People want bigger clutches. The staff have declared that for bigger clutches, we need more candidates. Therefore, I am making a way to make more candidates.

This is going to be like Lee's Museam, but with a twist. The ideas listed here may only be used for candidates. Dragon, wher, or dual, that is up to you. But they must be impressible. To further enable people, there will be an inventory for people who need slots can use to make candidates. Only people who do not currently have an open slot may dip into the pool. Miscellaneous other store items can also be found to be claimed by candidate creators who need it or assigned to specific ideas by the person who donated the item.

The account containing this inventory can be found here. Mark donations are not allowed, but donations of items are approved and appreciated!

The Vending Machine

Individual Ideas:

The Desperate. This individual has wanted nothing more than to impress for as long as they can remember. Born in a Weyr, they thought they were a shoe-in! There's just one problem. They're getting close to aging out and still haven't impressed. In an attempt to shake things up and boost their luck, they transfer to Dalibor Weyr to try and impress. What else are they willing to try? Will this jaded dragon lover turn to whers, who they hadn't so much as glanced at previously?

Get That Power. Fighting thread? Helping people? Having a bonded who loves you with their entire being? They aren't here for that! This person is here for one thing: the good life. They bought into all those dragonrider rumors that circulate the holds and are looking for a trip down easy street. Boy, they're in for a rude awakening.

The Fear Facer. This person? Completely and utterly terrified of dragonkin. The thing is, they don't want to be. They don't want to be seen as a coward. Besides, it's silly to be scared of them when you live in a Weyr. Given that they've been signaled out as capable of impressing, they've taken on candidacy as a way to face their fears.

The One Who Wants To Be Left Alone. They have been searched so many times. So. Many. They did not accept search once. Dragons are nice and all, but they don't want to fight thread and aren't eager to share mindspace. A wher? Unnecessary Danger. Firelizards and pillies? Nuisances. They're that person with a powerful aversion to things that aren't human and maybe even other humans. Too bad their newest craft assignment has thrown them smack dab in Dalibor Weyr. Stands candidate, anyone?

Why Whers? This person is not going to not impress. No. They will NOT be left standing. It's too bad they aged out of dragons long ago. They just don't have the capacity to bond a dragon no matter how hard they try. But whers? They have just enough of that special something to bond a wher. Too bad that they really can't seem to grasp how whers are different from dragons aside from being too small and too grounded.

The Casual Candidate. Yeah, they're a candidate. They just aren't too worked up about it. This person has a bunch of projects on the side and doesn't seem to care whether they impress or not. Unfortunately, they also don't know what to do with themselves if they don't impress. The indecisiveness is strong in this one.

Group Ideas.
Group ideas are concepts that are all connected in one way or another. They could have known each other before entering play, they could be part of a theme set, or the idea creator could just wish for them to get to know each other.

The Power Of F R I E N D S H I P
in which Minute blatantly abuses anime tropes

The Heart. This person is not really aggressive as all. They just want peace, love, and to avoid stressful situations. It probably doesn't come as a surprise that they don't handle stressful situations as well. Likely the weakest one in the group, be it physically or emotionally, they are highly empathetic. They may or may not be intensely chipper - that's up to the claimer.

The Go-Getter. Oh my gosh, can you CHILL? This person it ready to fight 24/7. Whatever they're doing, you can be sure they'll give it their all. Probably not the smartest and more than a little reckless. They can also be intensely loyal and a surpringly good friend.

The Warrior. Wow. You're terrifying. This person oozes intimidation from every pore of their body. They often step up as a leader, be it by force or words. Yeah, they're scary, but they don't have to be brutish. Beneath that spikey exterior, they can be surprisingly kind.

The Calculator. SMART. This person may not be super sweet, super smart, or made of pure terror, but boy are they good at figuring things out. And judging people when they don't do the logical thing. They're probably one of the most cautious ones in the group. That being said, don't think that being intelligent means they can't be pulled in. Peer pressure, anyone?

The Thorn. Icy, stoic, maybe something of a smug snake. This person does not like to show off their emotions, especially the mushier ones. Trying to figure out what they're feeling is like trying to untangle a knot made of snakes. Once you get past the twelve feet of rock around their heart, you will find someone capable of loving deeply and truly.

The Not To Blame. Something really bad happened because of this person. The thing is, it's not their fault, not really. They just refuse to accept that. There is no such thing as a victim of circumstance and they are hellbound to drown themself in guilt. Maybe they try to put on a strong face for the people who care about them, maybe everyone can see just how wracked by guilt they are. Whatever the case, they are a good person deep down and are struggling with themselves.

MMMwatcha Say. Unlike The Not To Blame, something really bad happened because of this person and they are entirely to blame. They may be trying to make ammends and feel bad about it, but they have a long way to go before anyone will trust them. This weight on their shoulders is one that might stay forever.

I donate 200 marks to the pool, if people need an extra slot (contact me if the mark count runs dry and it's needed); however, this comes with a stipulation that if that person using it quits the site or gets rid of the character, that inventory slot gets sent back to the Admin account so that it can be put back into the pool (if possible).

I have ideas, I just haven't written them yet. I will, though!

I've added some ideas to the vending machine! All ideas currently posted were made by me. Since the friendship group idea is based off tropes, I can provide examples if they are wanted.

A few things have changed. Namely, we now have an account! This account cannot hold marks, but you are free to donate items. To the people who donated marks, please use them to purchase a character slot and send it to the account. Marks donated directly to me have already been turned into slots and added to the inventory.
