A Profusion of Rum and Coconuts - Syka's OOC

This will be the final Verusk Fun Fact for the season. Why? Because some things you need to discover for yourselves!

Velispar absorb memories from others. Verusk have a capacity to do this as well, though by touch not by eating the brains of those they learn from. We've talked about this already on a previous Saturday. To go along with this skill, Verusk have one final trait.

Verusk have Hyperthymesia. Hyperthymesia, also known as piking or hyperthymestic syndrome, is a condition in which an individual possesses a superior autobiographical memory, meaning he or she can recall the vast majority of personal experiences and events in his or her life. This means they can recall their own hatching, and all the events of their life super clearly as if it JUST happened to them.

A Profusion of Rum and Coconuts - Syka's OOC

Postby Gossamer on April 5th, 2018, 2:17 am

Hey Folks..

I just wanted to apologize for not being around lately. I've been dealing with a lot of exhaustion and stress irl. Not to mention I've just worked a lot of hours the last few weeks. I have the whole weekend off and I'm going to be around for the rest of the week to get caught up on moderation and posts that have been neglected.

If you are a grader, please hit the grading que if you have time and do a grade or so a day until we are caught up.

I'll get all the 'business' stuff done here in a day or two...meaning job approvals etc. If you think your job is fine, don't hesitate to start threading if you are new. :)

I'm sorry to everyone I'm in threads with right now, but my PhD thesis work has picked up in a major way, and I have to drop some things to keep up. Regrettably, I'm taking a step back from Miz for now, but I'll try to come back asap

Hi Folks.

For clarity I added something to the Codex on PCs starting here and traveling here in regards to skill requirements. I hope its clear enough!
✨Details On Skills Needed To Survive In Syka


Syka is a dangerous place. The longer the settlement exists, the safer it will become. But this timeframe is in years, not seasons. Until then, characters MUST have some sort of skills to survive the wilderness. What is absolutely required is a Wilderness Survival (hopefully jungle) of a competent level. A competent weapons skill is also required. Helpful skills include carpentry and construction, as discussed previously. Foraging and hunting are also necessary at a competent level. New PCs cannot afford to purchase all these skills before game start so as long as they are actively working on them, they will be fine to start in Syka with less than these requirements as long as they get their Wilderness Survival up to competent in their first season. This holds true of PCs migrating or traveling to Syka. Established PCs that journey to Syka need to attempt to meet these requirements before their arrival on Syka's shores or work actively towards them in their initial seasons. If zero effort or a very noted lack of effort is made towards working on these skills, PCs will be asked to leave IC by the Founders.

PC's will also be required to CONTRIBUTE to the Settlement. This means they must produce something the settlement needs. The interpretation of what this means is exclusively reserved to the storyteller's discretion. This means before you arrive in Syka, please TALK TO THE STORYTELLERS OOC. If you will not be contributing, you will not be allowed to stay.

All PCs entering Syka and planning on staying will be required to either write a solo thread featuring a discussion with the Founders or have a moderated thread with a storyteller. These threads must include the PC introducing themselves to the Founders, arranging for housing (and land perks), and discussing how they are going to contribute to the settlement. This is non-negotiable. Without these threads, the PCs will be asked to leave.... or exterminated by the Storytellers via numerous jungle means.

A Profusion of Rum and Coconuts - Syka's OOC

Postby Ashka on May 13th, 2018, 5:44 pm

I've added a picture to Ashka's Acres and updated the description to reflect that the house is now finished.

Next stop, furniture. Table, chairs and storage to start with, maybe more later.

I know I've mentioned it to a couple of folk already, but if any carpenters or similar want to make some/all of it for job threads, let me know.

A Profusion of Rum and Coconuts - Syka's OOC

Postby Gossamer on May 31st, 2018, 9:17 pm

Hello Folks!

Just a friendly reminder that TODAY is the last day of Spring. Tomorrow, Summer starts and there can't be any new posting in Syka under old timestamps. Get your job threads completed and your timestamps in. I am somewhat considering Spring a lost season to me because I had serious health issues (that I'm still dealing with) and lost a big chunk of time where I couldn't be here. There's no guarantee that won't happen again. It could. But I feel like I'm through the shock of it and am getting better at the day to day dealing with things.

I hope all of you are doing well. I know I wasn't the only one that had a rough spring all around. Many of you did.

I'd like to move the Veronica quest (with its current members) to Summer and restart it there (just having everyone move their posts to the new thread) so we can keep current and not get so far behind. Is anyone opposed to that? Let me know here in the OOC channel.

The site will be changed over to the new season sometime tomorrow afternoon when I get home from running around. I go to bed too early to do it tonight. At that time the new city bling will be posted and we'll get started all refreshed.

Remember, to be in Syka, you need to be a contributing resident. There is no tourism here. Visitors are traders stopping to briefly trade and the occasional God or Goddess we can't actually kick out. All others and people that have hung out without RPing or doing their job threads aren't welcome.. and will be asked to leave. No talking Founders into letting you stay. They don't like lookee-lou's and people just coming here to exploit the jungle, the ruins, or any of the stuff that should be IC knowledge only after being in Syka a while.

If you haven't rp'd and completed or at least attempted to start your jobs you won't be allowed to stay or re-register. I want to keep a core active tight-knit group here in Syka... and I want the city to stay small.

Thanks for understanding!
