Business and Job Claims

Our business and job claims have been languishing for a while, and the primary issue has been that they lacked a solid cohesive purpose. The point of having claims listed out is that it makes it easy for players to find each other for plotting purposes. Coworkers are the closest equivalent to classmates for our adult characters on site, and the existing claims simply didn't satisfy that need. As a result, we've revamped them into the Business and Job Listing. Most importantly, we need everyone to redo their job and business claims sometime this month so we can have a shiny fresh start. Hop on over there to see the changes, and post your new claims in here.

Student Council Elections
That's right! Twice a year we hold elections, and our initial signups are running for the next five days. If you have a character who might be interested, we encourage you to sign up as soon as possible so we can determine if a fully election is needed.

You can find all the information here.

Challenges
We have a new set of monthly challenges available for all members.

Odds and Ends
January was a quiet month overall, but we did have a new update on Dorm Parents. Generally, you can find all the really small updates over on the #ooc-announcements channel on discord.​

March 2020 Announcements 2!!!
So good we did a sequel!

Hey everyone! We're officially announcing that we've changed the way we handle character powers and abilities. We've removed hard limits (3 active / 5 passive), and made things significantly more open ended. We're also now allowing players to edit their powers without going through the power upgrade process, but when doing so, post an update for that character explaining the change.

You can see our new character rules here, and we encourage everyone - old and new alike - to read over them.

With the new rules regarding character powers and abilities, we've also tweaked the way Challenges work and the rewards you can earn. You can see a guide to the new challenges here.

You'll see that instead of vouchers, you earn Stars by completing challenges each month. Your total star count can only go up, and reaching different milestones earns you trophies! The entire list of trophies can be found here!

We've converted the old challenges for March over to the new system, and you can find them here. A lot of the challenges have been simplified down to make it easier for you to claim them (hint hint, you don't have to link individual posts to count for Posting Challenge).

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to PM a member of the staff, or ask them over in #changes-discussion on discord.
