And with the endgame log up, the curtains officially close on Soul Campaign.

I'm not sure how many of you will see this, but I just wanted to take a moment as SC's last headmod to thank everyone who ever played in this game. Without you, this game would not have been here. So, on behalf of every mod who has ever modded in this game: thank you.

I also wanted to take a moment to thank all previous mods, however long or short their tenure was. Thank you for holding down the fort all that time.

And a big THANK YOU to my co-mods who are amazing people and whom I sometimes wonder wouldn't have done better with a more experienced head mod, haha. All the same: thank you for all your patience.

I wasn't here from the start, but I'm glad I could at least have been here for the end. There are a lot of things I felt I could have done better and I still wonder if a more experienced headmod couldn't have turned this game around. But you all put up with me so: thank you for that.

With that out of the way, if any current or former players have any memories of SC that really stand out, feel free to share them here! Let's end this on a happier note, guys. :3


Sincerely Yours,

Orange (the Supreme Demon Overlord)

Early in the morning on October 7, on a day like any other, every news channel starts talking about the same piece of news: last night the world lost contact with Mongolia.

Mongolia, along with others have been uncomfortable with the role China played and, despite the revelation that they'd been working with Witches very little sanctions had been placed against it and it continued.

Speculations start flying about what is going on and whether this is a sign of protest on the side of Mongolia.

Then later that afternoon chilling footage from within the Mongolian capital was put on the internet.

The king has become a Kishin by consuming the souls of his people.

The footage is revealed to come from the Witch Medusa who issues a challenge to Death City and the world.

Come get us...if you dare.

The reason for this happening isn't clear, but Shibusen can't ignore this issue. By evening, Shibusen and its allies will head out.


Soul Campaign's final event mission will take place on August 20th - August 22nd (IC October 7). We'll push the day change back by a day so people have time to plot. Due to this being the last event there will be a couple of differences:

1. Rewards will be handwaved.
2. There will be no Kishin Eggs, only two threads, one to fight Medusa and another to fight the Mongolian king turned Kishin. Each will function as if multiple pairs are fighting the same enemy unless otherwise specified.
3. There will be no official sign up, owing mostly to time constraints.

The mission is for partnered pairs only. Feel free to use this post to coordinate!

Any questions or concerns you might have should be directed here.

So, according to our calender, the event log was supposed to happen today, but due to various reasons we'll be pushing it back to the next day change. Many apologies for the inconvenience!

Everything else will happen more or less as outlined on the calender.

Salutations, Soul Campaign!

It's hard to believe that this will be the last Monthly Mod Post. (There will be one more at the very end but that's something else.) Thank you for sticking with us until the very end. It's been a blast.

Now! Onto business.

1. Arsonist in Death City

This particular player plot will be wrapping up this month! More information will be made available by the players later.


2. August Plot: The Snake in Asia

The last plot of Soul Campaign will take place in Asia where Medusa is suspected to be hiding. However, she's not the only problem there. Mongolia's been withdrawing from the world stage and, sometime soon, all communications with it will cut off entirely.

Just what is going on...?

This month's calender is here.

If you tag into the event mission, you can submit it as proof to the Soul Tally page once it reaches the required length to receive the reward of 7 points/souls.

The recent string of random, inexplicable seismic activity finally hits Death City! It's not your usual earthquake, however. More like something underground just slammed against the earth's crust. Sounds silly and impossible, doesn't it? However, people who are outside the Holocaust Mall or thereabouts IC September 26th (OOC July 11-14) will see a large bulge in the ground as if that's exactly what happened. And there's a spike of what feels awfully like Madness there for the briefest moment...

How your character deals with that is up to you, but there's more to it than just that and it will be covered in an NPC post later this week.

For now, there's something else that needs addressing and that's that during this event powers will be briefly regained during IC September 28th (OOC July 18-21) when the Kishin Ashura ends up in Death City. More details will be given for that later, for now, we need you to sign up for this part of the event!

Everyone who wants to regain powers need to reply to this thread. Please remember that all powers must be approved before they can be used in the event.

As usual, any questions or concerns can be addressed here.

Salutations, Soul Campaign!

I will try to keep this post short and sweet because I still have school tomorrow (and no one wants to listen to me go on and on and on, anyway.)

1. Activity Check...

Is still gone. Technically, this would be the last month for AC anyway so by now there isn't much point. The Love Meme will go up over the weekend, hopefully!


2. July Plot: The Day the Earth Shook

You've probably seen an article or two about strange seismic activity...very soon it will be coming to Death City. There's more, however, because it seems there's a trend of Kishin Eggs gathering around the locations where these tremors happen.

What does that mean? You'll find out this month! An event post will be going up tomorrow.

Also, just a heads up, there is something slated to happen on the 25th, but it will not interfere with morning training!

This month's calender is here.

SO GUESS WHO BEGINS HER BACHELOR OF EDUCATION PROGRAM THIS WEEK.

That being said, actually playing will have to take backseat to mod work as I have less time during the weekdays to RP. So yes. Still going to be around, but expect me to be slow on the weekdays! Well...slower than I've been lately anyway.

This affects: Aqua, Eve, Giroro and Hyoubu.

SORRY THIS IS LATE, I WAS BUSY WITH HOLIDAY BUSINESS! Ahem, but anyway, morning training this month is set to go up on July 8th, which is September 25th in-game~

For anyone new here, morning training happens everyday at the park from 6-9am, but is handwaved except for once a month, where a log goes up to play out shenanigans. It's set up and coordinated primarily by Rock Lee, and run by a host of teachers that instruct guests in the varying methods of kicking ass. There's also free food.

Teaching at morning training is a paid position, paying 10 deathdollars an hour, and new instructors are always welcome. This month, like the months before it may also feature a novelty class. A one-off class run by a guest that has anything unique guidance or instruction to impart. Any area can have more than one teacher, so if your character is looking for a job then this could be a thing for them to try!

There is nothing scheduled for this month's novelty class yet, so if your character would like to volunteer their wisdom or special ~skill~ feel free to let us know!

And of course, if your character would like to offer their services as a part-time teacher in the mornings for any section of training, hit up the teachers thread to bang out some quick deets. Don't worry if a section already has a teacher, because one instructor can't get to everyone, so multiples are welcome~ Alternatively, let us know if your character has stepped down from teaching for any reason!

Any questions or comments have their own thread, as well. And without further ado, the sections of training are as follows:

FAQ: In need of help or answers? Come here! Staffed by Neji
Breakfast: The incentive for coming to Morning Training for those who actually don't care about Death City. All food providers are given funds to buy/prepare the food and are then paid for the time they spent cooking/preparing. Provided by Rosalia and Kanji
Combat Instruction: One can learn and improve on fighting techniques! Staffed by Sion
Sparring: A bunch of people are there. You show up and pick one to fight. Staffed by Naruto, Sakura (beginners), Morgan (intermediate), Amaterasu (advanced)
Weapon Transformation: New Weapon? Unsure on how to transform into a weapon (or how to transform back)? Go here! Staffed by Aqua
Soul Perception: Find out more about your soul, what they are, and what they potentially may do. Staffed by Death the Kid
Partner Training: Learn how to work as a partner! Staffed by Death the Kid, Sasuke Uchiha
Weapons Handling Training: Learn how to handle sharp things and not so sharp things! Staffed by Genesis
Shooting Range: Learn to shoot a gun, not at quail though, so expect your face to come out of this just fine. Staffed by Naoto, Giroro
Meister Ability Helpers: Learn about your Meister ability and how to use it. Staffed by Akiha
Finding a Partner: Unpartnered Weapons and Meisters meet each other here! Staffed by Karina/Blue Rose
Medics: A place for medics to hang out, recruit and aid the injured - especially if they get shot in the face by accident. Staffed by Rosalia
Watch: This is where members of the watch meet up, chill, recruit and train! People interested in the watch welcome!
SEES: This is where SEES members hang out, and recruit!
Hug Brigade: A squad dedicated to hugs of encouragement. Thank Lee for this! Staffed by Lee and the Hug Brigaders!

Novelty Class: TBA - and we're looking for someone to volunteer for it

And as always, feel free to leave comments with what your characters will be doing, and use this post to make plans with new CR and old CR alike! Never know who you might run into~

And if it looks like I got any information wrong, please just shoot me a note and I'll fix it! :3

Hi Soul Campaign! THIS IS CELI!!

I was also here a whhhhile back and have had lots of good memories with this game! I remember a lot of you guys so it's really exciting. ;w;/ I missed you all, and I missed this game! So I wanted to also see it end with a bang.

I'm bringing Prussia back who is in fact a meister with Soul Irritate. He'll retain all of his memories and injuries including automail arm from like forever ago!

I LOVE YOU GUYSSSSSSS.

So, uh. Hi. 8D

My name is Lyn, and like Len I was here a long time ago. I met a lot of amazing people and made a lot of good memories, and with the game ending and all, I wanted to at least see it through to its conclusion. That, and your resident ninjas can be pretty persuasive even when (I suspect) they're not trying.

Kurapika's coming back with all memories of the crap he pulled during his previous stay here. His weapon form is still the pair of unsheathed tanto he wields in canon, connected by a fine chain that extends at will. I'll likely shove him into the clinic since that's where he used to work before he left. (If it's still standing?? DDD:)

So nervous and excited to be back. ;w;

HELLO SOUL CAMPAIGN

My name is Len, and roughly six million years ago I used to play here with about the same amount of characters. Now I'm back! Because this game is essentially crack cocaine and I'd have to be crazy to miss its closing.

I'm returning with Cuba of Hetalia fame, who will be arriving with all of his memories from his previous stay! He's still a weapon (Soviet rocket luancher aww yee) so if anyone needs a lot of explosions he's your guy. I'm super duper stoked to be here again PLEASE COME TO MY ARMS I WISH TO HUG EVERYONE IN THIS GAME

It's that time of month again!

Volunteers will be chosen and assigned a newcomer to give them a full tour (or as much as they want)! Then volunteers will be chosen to deal with working the Soul Perception area.

Now onto how this is going to go-

This is how it works OOCly:

You sign up and we ping you!


As to how it works ICly:
  • Holy crap what is this room. New arrivals will land in the Kishin Chamber as a group. They will be confused, afraid, and possibly hostile, but volunteers willing to take up the task will be posted in the chamber to greet them after watching Spirit's video transmission.

  • Show them around! Once their questions are answered, newcomers are directed to Death City proper, where a guide will show them around and ultimately lead them to Casualty Communal for their communicators, SEES starter baskets, apartment keys, and a scan of their souls to determine whether they are a Meister or Weapon via machinery or Soul Perception.

  • Mingle! Last but not least, there will be a section for open interaction between guides, newcomers, and all other interested parties for when the tour is complete.



There are a few requirements when it comes to guiding:

  • Must bear some loyalty to Shibusen. Shibusen will be contacting guides personally (such interaction is handwaved), trusting them to give all newcomers the information they need to make their time here a little easier.

  • Availability. Players of guides must be available to thread starting this week into the next at the very least.

  • Somewhat knowledgeable. Characters who at least have a solid understanding of what is going on and can give new arrivals a good start into living in Death City are preferred. So long as they know about the war, meister/weapon system, and how to get to important and/or popular locations, then that should be fine.



And that's it! Just fill out the form below and put it in a comment:



Thanks guys! If you have any questions, you are free to ask.

Hey, Soul Campaigners!

The terror that swept over Death City fades after the day is done, though maybe there are some lingering chills that really are all in your characters heads.

Concerned about this new power, Shibusen agents had gone out of their way to discover the source...and they've tracked it to Witches.

According to Shibsusen agents the machine they are using appears to be powered by soul wavelength. And the power it exhibits is close enough to what happened when newcomer Diablo went on a rampage that they highly suspect it's his soul that was put into it.

They tracked the Witches to Europe and now it's time to take them down before they can do any more damage with the machine!

The attack will take place September 22 ICly/June 27-30 OOCly. There will be Kishin Eggs as well as witch familiars so the mission will be open to partnered pairs as well as individuals whom Shibusen will provide with weapons.

Due to its proximity to the app cycle, newbies are naturally free to sign up as well!


Rewards:
► 7 Meister points / souls (for Meisters and Weapons, respectively.)
► 950D$ per person
► Weapons may choose not to eat their souls, but they cannot be traded amongst each other.
► Sign ups for the missions go here. In order for your characters to receive the rewards, you must at least provide a summary of what happened. If you don't have a planned partner just put N/A.

Feel free to use this post to co-ordinate with each other!

Any questions or concerns you might have should be directed here.

It was brought up on plurk so I thought I'd put it up where everyone can see.

For the June app cycle, players are free to app two characters as long as both are returning characters!

Please remember that apps are processed on June 25th!

Everyone is afraid of something. That's a truth universally acknowledged by almost everyone, but some are more afraid than others and this month, your characters may wish this weren't true.

Staring on September 18th (June 13th), a pervading feeling of unease will begin to spread in Death City. It starts out innocuously enough. People may surprise more easily, and maybe they'll look over their shoulders more often than they normally do when they're on their way home at night.

Or maybe they'll see something they're afraid of out of the corner of their eyes. But, of course, when they turn around there's nothing there.

Or maybe it was only a tree's shadow on the building instead of a claw and there might be a moment of relief and maybe even wry humour. Because how foolish was that? But the feeling of unease will return quickly.

And on September 19th (June 17th) it steadily gets worse until September 20th (June 20th) when things get to a breaking point and one person after another falls prey to panic attacks as they see the things they are most afraid of everywhere...and in some cases, in everyone.

For example, someone who's afraid of clowns will find everyone they see (and maybe a few trees as well) looking distinctly...clownish. Or maybe you're afraid of drowning and suddenly everywhere you go there's water rising higher and higher.

It will fade just after midnight on that last day. In the mean time, try not to stab anyone out of panic.


As usual, feel free to use this post to coordinate and any questions can be directed here.

Salutations, Soul Campaign!

For some reason your headmod mistakenly thought today was the 8th, only when I actually went to add dates to the calendar did I realize that it's actually the 10th. I apologize profusely for this post being so late because of that! (Please don't stone me.)

That being said, there are a few things to bring up!

1. Activity Check

Earlier in the month, we mentioned that Activity Check will no longer be happening, however some players brought up concerns about what it would do to activity in the game so we're bringing it to the mod post to hear what you think!

Before that, here are some of the points brought up:

- No Activity Check may make the game even slower
- No Activity Check may lead to people handwaving more instead of logging things out
- If Activity Check comes back it can be half activity to reflect the speed of the game

- There is actually only one Activity Check left even if we bring it back at this point
- Having recently lost a mod, getting rid of activity check was a way of lightening mod work load
- More people are taking strikes than ever before which contributed to the decision to get rid of AC in the first place


2. App Reminders

Just a quick reminder that June is the last month where you can re-app an old character! Apps are processed June 15th and June 25th!


3. June Plot: Terror in Death City

So, remember a while back when a guest by the name of Diablo went berserk and started spreading his Terror Wavelength around like nobody's business? Yeah, that guy. Some witches took him out of the city in order to study his powers...and now they're ready to test the results of their experiements out on Death City.

There will be an event post up right after this, so stay tuned for that!

This month's calendar can be found here.

Thanks to the encouraging and positive feedback it has been decided to have morning training continue on for the rest of our time here in SC! Thanks to everyone who voiced an opinion on the matter! For now, Morning training this month is set to go up on the 10th or llth and will be backdated to September 16th so it will not clash with any China investigations.

For anyone new here, morning training happens everyday at the park from 6-9am, but is handwaved except for once a month, where a log goes up to play out shenanigans. It's set up and coordinated primarily by Rock Lee, and run by a host of teachers that instruct guests in the varying methods of kicking ass. There's also free food.

Hey y'all! Cager here to talk to you about the future of morning training!

Since I was feeling ill last week and pretty much dead to the world after work, I completely forgot to post the coordination post up near the very start of this month. And then I only remembered about it around yesterday, so apologies about that!

HOWEVER, as everyone knows, our dear Soul Campaign is ending sometime in August so I expect everyone will be quite busy with their own endgame plans. My question to all of you is, should we continue along with morning training or should we just handwave it for the final months of the game? Also, should we keep it, should we also do a coord post? It's a bit late this month, but maybe we could do one again next month.

ICly, Rock Lee would not ever just stop Morning Training. He is a very devoted soul. But the last few months the training logs have been fairly small and it may be that it has run its course with the game. But I wanted to ask the playerbase first what your thoughts on the matter are before we just pull the plug or post a late training log for the month. So tell me, what do you think, Campaigners? Even a simple "post it late" or "let's be done" message will suffice if you have nothing particular to say on the matter.

And again, apologies for being so late on posting this.
~Cager
