YOUR NAME; greedyslayer
PLOT SUMMARY; Korra caught an illness during the invasion.
I was actually thinking the origin of Korra's sudden illness gained during the Invasion would be a messed up mistake with her Avatar State trying to kick in for a dire case of self-defense. Given her location in Cybertron right now, there's this madly long distance between her and the Spirit World. Triggering the Avatar State doesn't even reach full power but it should still pack a punch, just not like a GodMod one as the Avatar State tends to be in canon--and not even reaching full power, it still does havoc to Korra's mortal body, leaving her really sapped of energy and delirious and messing with her chi pathways, even blocking her bending in a way. I think her hacking out blood occasionally would be more a symptom of her busted ribs. I was thinking this new Avatar State fatigue would wear off by itself eventually, but it helps if someone takes her to someplace more restful than the Junkpile. And when the AS fatigue fades she can fix up her own ribs with waterbending, unless someone else deals with that. Was thinking this would be just a first small hint of Korra's Avatar State, then another plot would go more into it.

INVOLVED CHARACTERS; Korra, Ratchet, Brave Police in general
ESTIMATED TIMESPAN; matter of days
ANYTHING ELSE; I wasn't sure if I needed permission for this, but asking because this involves Korra's Avatar State ability, and I wasn't sure if I need mod approval to develop abilities.
raceme: (Brb writting your name in the Death Note)

[personal profile] raceme 2012-08-05 09:41 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask that but better ask officially.

YOUR NAME;Lylith
PLOT SUMMARY; The construction of a bar/neutral place for /organics/decepticons/autobots/anybody to meet without risk. It will also work as a building to storage food for the organics since it will have different floors. If the idea is approved I will make and OCC informing people about it.

INVOLVED CHARACTERS; So far Blurr IC talked to Wing, Soundwave and Barricade but if this is approved and he makes an IC post about it other chars might join.
ESTIMATED TIMESPAN; It will be a huge ass building and they might need a lot of time building it but it depends on how many chars decide to join the project.
ANYTHING ELSE;I suck at explaining /)_(\

[personal profile] docbot 2012-08-10 04:20 am (UTC)(link)
YOUR NAME; Toast
PLOT SUMMARY; Ratchet builds a land bridge.

He'd be using materials from the Junk Pile and the Item Drop to do this, mostly so that people like the humans and First Aid and such can get around more easily. The base entry would be in Solus Prime's temple, near the medbay (but not in it), I think, and use would be limited to places that have been explored and are within player-accessible areas.

Malfunctions may happen at first, but since he's built a land bridge before on Earth, not too many, if any, will occur (basically only if people want to be teleported to exotic places like other people's bedrooms...)

INVOLVED CHARACTERS; Everyone, probably
ESTIMATED TIMESPAN; This will probably take weeks/months for Ratchet to build properly, but will be a permanent fixture when built.
ANYTHING ELSE;

When Science Attacks

[personal profile] must_do_science 2012-08-14 03:55 am (UTC)(link)
YOUR NAME; Dhynamic
PLOT SUMMARY; Right. So Wheeljack is trying to figure out the Lambda, how it can exist and if it can be controlled. To that end, he is going to aquire a bit of matter that has been affected by the Lambda and still maintains some of the dark energy / radiation from being drawn through. This matter is currently planned to come from Pharma but we'll see.

Anyway, Wheeljack retires to his new workshop to put the dark matter through tests and manages to set off a power overload / some sciency thing that causes the matter to explode with a huge dark energy shockwave that will blanket a lot of Nexus' territory and perhaps some outside.

'Jack himself will be at least partially caught in the explosion and subject to it's effects - which could be interesting to play with. I haven't nailed down exactly what they should be but my two favorite are being locked in alt-mode, or reconfiguring internal systems so that energon no longer works as a fuel source. As for humans / other squishies? Dunno, but I'm open to ideas!

INVOLVED CHARACTERS; Wheeljack for me - whoever else feels like getting involved / affected.

ESTIMATED TIMESPAN; Not too long, within a week or two of getting the dark matter.

ANYTHING ELSE; I am up for anything the mods suggest as effects of the dark wave!
heavymetalgenkigirl: (BRB slash pic)

Canon Update

[personal profile] heavymetalgenkigirl 2012-09-11 08:03 pm (UTC)(link)
YOUR NAME; Demothi
YOUR CHARACTER; Miko Nakadai
SUMMARY; Miko will be going through events including the Nemesis gaining sentience, recovering decrypted data off the Nemesis, hunting in the New York subway system for an Iacon relic, returning to base to find Bulkhead hurt and going with Wheeljack to get revenge for what she is being led to believe is lethal damage. During revenge she nearly loses Wheeljack, and for the first time in her life kills a 'con, before returning home to find out that Bulkhead is still alive but badly damaged.
Personality wise Miko is more irritable and prone to snapping, she is highly sensitive of the issue of Bulkhead, and has hit a point of obsessive worry for the big bot. She vows to never leave his side again, which will hold some very negative connotations for her when she wakes back up on Cybertron. Her concern for Bulkhead over shadows everything else, including her music. She also has a much stronger connection to Wheeljack now than she did before. She has yet to deal with the backlash of having actually killed someone yet, if she even recognizes this as what she even did.
She has shown to know at least the basics of piloting the Jackhammer, and may have some minimal understanding of how to pilot other Prime based small ships.
WHEN?; September 24 (to line up with the spoiler time)
ANYTHING ELSE; I think that is it for her.

YOUR NAME; Corny
PLOT SUMMARY; Not really a plot, just permissions request to have Stripe spawn some gremlins at the end of the glyphless event.
INVOLVED CHARACTERS; Stripe
ESTIMATED TIMESPAN; The end of the event til they're murdered horribly
ANYTHING ELSE; How many exactly are spawned if allowed I shall leave up to you mods to decide?

[personal profile] aerospacecommander 2012-11-14 05:26 am (UTC)(link)
YOUR NAME; Jami
PLOT SUMMARY; I'd like Starscream to build a secret underwater base in Alpha Trion's lake.
INVOLVED CHARACTERS; Starscream
ESTIMATED TIMESPAN; It will probably take him awhile to actually build it.
ANYTHING ELSE; it will also probably be named 'Underwater Nemesis Base II' because Starscream isn't creative with names.
angleofscience: (no wait - calm down)

INFESTATION

[personal profile] angleofscience 2012-11-24 09:55 pm (UTC)(link)
YOUR NAME; Chibi
PLOT SUMMARY; Jetfire's been making little glowing bugs (looks similar to dragonflies with rotors if one looks close enough) built up of his own nanites with the potential aim of releasing them into this Cybertron's wild. But that was supposed to be a planned thing. Instead there's a bit of an accident and they get out of the lab and suddenly glowing bugs EVERYWHERE.

Cute, glowing bugs that like light and people and like to gather around them, especially if they leave the safety of Haven. The bugs will presumably just spread out over the planet after a few days of swarming around people, warmth and light.
INVOLVED CHARACTERS; Jetfire (as the responsible party), anyone else who wants to be annoyed at the BUGS, EVERYWHERE.
ESTIMATED TIMESPAN; A few days around the 13th December, preferrably ending on the 13th, but starting then works as well, I'm not too picky.
ANYTHING ELSE; Just a silly little thing that'd nonetheless potentially affect a lot of people.
sword_redemption: (Default)

canon update

[personal profile] sword_redemption 2012-11-29 07:31 pm (UTC)(link)
YOUR NAME;HK
YOUR CHARACTER; Drift
SUMMARY; No ability upgrade but I'd like it to be MTMTE 10. He will know about Theophany, the Galactic Council, will have messed up the interrogation with Cyclonus about Red Alert's death, and will know they're trying to bring Rung back.

Personalitywise, the destruction of Theophany will hit his optimism hard, and he will struggle to deal with that and how it might affect Wing as well as his belief that the quest is going to be, well, fate-driven and divinely inspired. He'll also be thinking about larger responsibilities again--the Galactic Council hates Cybertronians for a good reason. No power changes.
WHEN?; I'm planning that he dies during the end of the Glyphless thing, so then?
ANYTHING ELSE; Not that I can think of?

[personal profile] thehardway 2012-12-12 01:32 am (UTC)(link)
YOUR NAME; Alba
PLOT SUMMARY; Really short "plot" idea, really brief. AS PREVIOUSLY DISCUSSED, I'd like to turn Ultra Magnus into grumpy cat a cat. Either by Lambda or Alpha Trion?
INVOLVED CHARACTERS; Just Magnus, really.
ESTIMATED TIMESPAN; About a month. Was thinking of starting it someone towards the end of the month-ish?
ANYTHING ELSE; NEIN.
staresat: (Default)

[personal profile] staresat 2013-01-07 05:12 pm (UTC)(link)
YOUR NAME; Ty, Tytaero
PLOT SUMMARY; Shockwave makes a Space Bridge in his creepy house.

The Deetz:

The plot would basically involve two parts occurring in tandem.

The first one would include the gathering of materials (and mapping of different locations) by small drones. Making a sufficient number of drones would take about one month. It's purpose would be to basically have a more accurate grid of the Haven, and would be used to explore whatever interior they can get into. I'm going to assume all character locations are locked unless otherwise stated/planned, but whatever can be accessed without special permission will be mapped out into a 3-D grid.

The second part involves the actual construction of the Bridge, which will begin after the drones are constructed and will be completed three months after. It'll be permanently fixed somewhere within the caves in Liege Maximo's quadrant, specifically in Shockwave's basement cave abode. It's for personal use mainly(though an ally could use it if they asked), to get to different locations quicker and attempt to extend his range for ~science~.

If the Bridge's range is restricted, he will try his darnedest to fix that. But how successful the attempts will be are up to you mods. I don't mind further this plot either, so maybe it's functional in three months but the adjustments take another two months or something like that.

INVOLVED CHARACTERS; Just Shockwave, unless anyone else chooses to assist him/wants to interact with or have drones creep in their house.
ESTIMATED TIMESPAN;Begins in January, finishes at the end of April. (The start may have to be backdated since I took too long to post this up :C)
ANYTHING ELSE; Dont think so? He's rather comfy in bed with all the nuances of normal Space Bridge tech.
4_toteachus: (!!!)

[personal profile] 4_toteachus 2013-01-16 04:29 am (UTC)(link)
YOUR NAME; Lady
PLOT SUMMARY; Four discovers several canisters in the junkpile. Further investigation shows that these are filled with an extremely toxic gas. In fact, this happens to be the very same gas that destroyed Four's world. Once released, this gas is capable of destroying all living things, from humans to bacteria. Naturally Four would like to keep these out of the wrong hands, but things don't always happen the way you want them to...
INVOLVED CHARACTERS; Just Four... and anyone else who gets involved
ESTIMATED TIMESPAN; Not sure :|a
ANYTHING ELSE; Sure would be terrible if badguys got a hold of this.
rungout: (The Doctor is In)

[personal profile] rungout 2013-04-14 12:56 pm (UTC)(link)
YOUR NAME; Wolfeh
YOUR CHARACTER; Rung
SUMMARY; I'd like to update Rung to the current situation in the comics as of issue #15, knowing everything up to the point that Overlord and Rewind are jettisoned from the Lost Light.

WHEN?; Since Rung is about to be killed by Quickstrike in game, I was hoping I could potentially tie in the canon update with that? Issue #15 will be out a month as of the 20th of this month and if I'm looking at everything right, Rung's five days of being gone should overlap that. I wasn't completely sure if that would work though but I figured I'd post this anyway and see what you guys had to say.

ANYTHING ELSE; Nope! Thanks either way! C:

YOUR CHARACTER; Wheeljack
SUMMARY;
EDIT: Updating them to 'Darkmount, NV', when Starscream has him captive in Darkmount and he's being questioned. He's just about to get the cortical psychic patch from Shockwave, when he's transferred back.

WHEN?;
Whenever you guys approve it is fine by me!

ANYTHING ELSE;

Question - Game Forum?

[personal profile] notyourblueangel 2013-05-29 03:36 am (UTC)(link)
Didn't know where else to ask this except as a PM to the mods, but then I thought if others have the same question, they'd be able to see the answer here.

In June, the pink means "Game Forum". Um . . . what's that mean, exactly? I've tried looking around on other pages to answer my own question ("Does it mean an IC plot will be playing out?" ... "Does it mean there'll be open OOC discussion on something?"), but I either couldn't find it or I managed to skip it over entirely. Knowing me, either's possible.

[personal profile] my_own_trope 2013-06-07 09:07 pm (UTC)(link)
YOUR NAME; MmeJack
YOUR CHARACTER; TFP Starscream
SUMMARY; No personality changes; I just want Starscream to be canon updated to "Scattered" S3 episode 2 -- after Wheeljack has 'escaped' his captivity (which was really Starscream's plan all along) but before the plan blows up in his face.
WHEN?; ASAP -- I'd like for him to get the canon update while he's still close to having been in prison. Ideally I'd like to backdate this to before he's been released.
ANYTHING ELSE;
Starscream's prison stay can be extended (since he hasn't been released yet) so it would make it easier to get that canon update during that time, and avoid having to backdate if that will be a problem.

INVOLVED CHARACTERS; Megatron, anyone who wants to come
ESTIMATED TIMESPAN; A week
ANYTHING ELSE; Obviously he won't be able to answer all of his questions, but if he can figure a few things out it'll help him with the political platform he's trying to build--either for the Firstforged, or against them.

SUMMARY; He's being updated to the tail end of "Thirst", after Airachnid and the Insecticons left. Mostly he's getting new information... and also a much more informed dislike of dark energon and synthetic energon both. And worry about being a zombie terrorcon.
WHEN?; This coming Monday at the earliest, but ASAP
ANYTHING ELSE; Nothing I can think of!

WHEN?; ASAP would be nice but take your time.

YOUR NAME; Breezy
YOUR CHARACTER; Leonard McCoy
SUMMARY; Leonard arrived in-game during the ending of Star Trek XI. His canon will be updated to the events of Star Trek: Into Darkness. He would be returning back to Cybertron, once more, at the end of the movie. Specifically, when the crew are on board to start their five year mission in space. When McCoy returns, he might be a little more edgy, little more bitter. His best friend did die (but came back so yay!) in the movie, and then he's suddenly sucked back into this alien world, remembers his time here, yeah... He's kind of bitter that he's basically lost his friend again, though in a different way. Not only him, but everyone else he cares for and loves. Generally, though, McCoy will continue being a gruffy grump with a heart of gold.
WHEN?; It's up to the mods, but I was hoping starting the 28th into early December during my hiatus, since tags will be (no surprise) scarce, and this would explain why he's suddenly gone very quiet.

Canon Update

[personal profile] fun_police 2013-12-13 04:39 pm (UTC)(link)
YOUR NAME; Ty O
YOUR CHARACTER; Prowl
SUMMARY; Prowl will be updated to the end of RID Issue #16, where the Autobots have been exiled from New Iacon.
- Personality changes: After this point, he'd experienced Bombshell's mind control & forced combination with the Constructicons. As a result, he's set up to begin to drift away from his old, more manipulative methods. It's not an immediate drastic change, but after being rescued by his fellow Autobots, he seemed to regain a little of the idealist that he was before the war. JUST A LITTLE, THOUGH. He's still 95% a grumpy asshole.

Prowl's going to be super upset to be brought back to this Cybertron neck deep in his own schemes. HUR.

- Physical changes: He was modified with Decepticon Combiner technology and has taken on a bit more bulk to accommodate. He can shift between a car and the head and shoulders of Devastator. The new tech is modular, so it can be fit on more than one combiner.
WHEN?; I'll be aiming for about 1-2 weeks from now.
ANYTHING ELSE; He'll be coming in injured from the whole Devastator ordeal but I imagine he'll be repaired when he's brought back.
