2.16.2015 >> [News] A Belated Valentines


Valentines has arrived a couple days late on the World Train. We blame the continuous dimension hopping that has messed with our calenders and confused what date we're actually on.

To celebrate the season of love, a little picture booth has been set up in the lounge car till the end of the month (2/28/2015 11:59 PST). It's for couples or friends to take pictures in. Sorry you forever-alone-ers. Participants will receive a complementary 'Love Potion' for their first picture.

Objective: Draw your character and another character in the polaroid. It's time to show off your ships! Collabs are allowed.

2.09.2015 >> [News] Pandora's Trials Rewards!



You all fought hard and well, and most of you managed to dance with death and narrowly make it back...but now, the challenges have been overcome, and you have conquered Pandora's Trials! Congratulations to everyone who participated, and on behalf of World Train we thank you for your interest in these types of group rps. We'll be sure to have more in the future, so sit tight and keep those stats up.

By a sheer stroke of good luck (along with being pressed for time) everyone who participated is awarded the rewards below...

Rewards:


:bulletblue: Exp/Disc Reversal Gem (One time use)
:bulletblue: Elpis' Amulet (+20 HP)
:bulletblue: Title: CONQUEROR OF CHAOS (+40 to two stats of your choosing)
:bulletblue: 500 Exp/Discs

Please tell us the stats you want boosted as a result of the title either in the comments below or in the 'Title/Info' chat in Skype.

2.06.2015 >> [News] Submissions, Reminders + Group Super


Sorry in advance for the long News Update, but please bear with us!

Pandora's RP Event Starts tonight at 6pm PST! The rp is going to take place in three places:
:bulletblue: Skype chat (Pandora's Trials) for OOC
:bulletblue: Google docs (For the three teams)
:bulletblue: Main chat for rolling and misc usage

Those who want to join but didn't get a chance to RSVP can hang out in the main chat and see if an opening shows up in any of the teams for that day!

RP Submissions:

Just a friendly reminder on what our responsibilities are and what your responsibilities are.

Roleplayers are responsible for:
:bulletyellow: Counting up their individual word counts.
:bulletyellow: Getting consent to submit the RP to the group in a note.
:bulletyellow: Informing fellow RPers of their rewards.

Admins are responsible for:
:bulletblue: Double checking word counts (If you submit several, we'll randomly pick a few)
:bulletblue: Notifying the submitter of the rewards.
:bulletblue: Adding Discs + EXP to the registry

Art Submissions:

Keep art submissions PG-13! We don't know who may be uncomfortable seeing inappropriate content in the group and who we might be scaring away (current and future members). You're free to draw whatever you want, but be sure that what you're submitting to the group is appropriate. (this applies to sexual content. Gore is allowed. Though, try not to make it too stomach churning)

Please look through the submission page to refresh your memory on the requirements for the categories and sizes! Yes, there are some sizing requirements for each category. You can read them by clicking on the sections that have a black corner on them, like so:

Screenshot 4 by Stabrina

These have been here since the submission system was revamped last year, so it shouldn't come as a surprise. These specific size requirements are put in place because, for example, a fullbody that's 400 px tall takes a lot less time to finish than a full body that's 1200px tall. We want to be as fair as we possibly can to all our members. The specifications are to prevent any arbitrary judgments on our part.

Copy-Paste from the fullbody section:
"If the feet are cut off, -10% Discs &  Exp  from total.

Shows attempt at proportions.

Should take up at least half the height of the canvas. Less the half of the height of the deviation, it will be counted as a chibi.

If the canvas is on the larger side, (above 1500px high) and the full body is less than 1/2 the size of the height, it will still be counted as a full body since the details are larger. But if it's 1/4 the size and there isn't much detail, it will be a chibi.

If the character is lying down, then it will be counted against the width."

Please don't skirt around the size requirements by making a really small canvas. Most of the notes are generally the same, but it's always good to look through things to double check!

Group Super!

It's that time of year again where we're collecting donations for our Group Super! It runs out on March 11! We need 4,796 :points: to pay for it.

What a group super does:
:bulletyellow: Fancy front page with CSS capabilities
:bulletyellow: Fancy journals
:bulletyellow: Gallery CSS
:bulletyellow: Sub folders
:bulletyellow: Polls
:bulletyellow: Twitter

You are not required to send anything, but if you do have a few points lying around, it'd be greatly appreciated if you could donate those to:
:icondonateworldtrain:
Thank you so much for everything!


1.30.2015 >> [ANNOUNCEMENT] Power Ups + Skills Revisit


Due to the lack of popularity for this rule and a lengthy discussion with the members, it has been abolished. For those of you who didn't read the rule when it came out, it basically placed regulations on skills learnt for leveling up.

We do, however, ask that every time your character gains a new skill, you should notify the group so that it can be checked out by a moderator. We do not want characters with ungodly skills running around the group because we would like to trust all of our members to be able to govern themselves.

Please do not use this system constantly as we would prefer it if your character has risen in levels, so that it feels worth it to gain those skills.

An additional note we would like to add: 
As admins of the World Train, we do love you guys and we place rules hoping to create a safe and fun environment for everyone. We don't do it with the intention to hurt any one of you and your characters and sometimes we don't realize that it may come off that way. From now on we will work harder to bridge the gap between members and admins so there is more communication between all of us.




1.27.2015 >> [RP EVENT]

                       Pandora's Box: Trials of the Damned



Long ago, the gods created the first woman to come upon Earth, her name being Pandora. After Prometheus stole fire from the very heavens themselves, it was here Zeus took vengeance and married Pandora to his brother, Epimetheus. She was given a wedding gift like no other, a jar full of every known evil to exist. Despite the protests of the gods forbidding her from opening it, Pandora's curiosity got the better of her and she did just that, releasing all forms of chaos and anarchy into the world. Hastily she closed it, only to leave one more entity within the jar being Elpis, the spirit of Hope.


Eons pass and the greater evils have converged upon the box once more, lured by the trickle of power that emanated from its walls. It was here that Zeus baited the evil spirits and trapped them all with his might, however only managing to store a portion of the chaos back into the box. Zeus then freed Elpis, allowing her to keep check of her counterparts and ensure that no matter where evil may spread, that hope may always follow. The spirits scattered again, but weaker, still rampaging throughout dimensional space but with Hope in tow. Pandora's Box was then transported across time and space into its own pocket dimension, to where the rest of the evil may now rest, isolated from existence.




The Journey Into the Depths


The World Train was cruising along interdimensional space, its direction and purpose unknown to most. It was within the Lounge Car that a strange entity has entered its lavish walls, clad in an ominous cloak adorned with mysterious markings. The being takes its place in the middle of the room, clearing its throat and addressing all those who were willing to listen. It tells of the story prior, about the beings of chaos who escaped Pandora's Box and the blunder of mankind's curiosity. When it finished, the creature merely gave one last warning before departing from the room, the train conveniently stopped at its next destination. 

"There are challenges...trials that await those worthy enough in the secluded dimension of Pandora's Box. Within the case lies untold horrors, things that will test your will to survive.....and in the end lie bountiful treasures to those courageous enough to tackle the challenges. I will wait at the entrance of the labyrinth, anticipating those who are willing and strong enough to be rewarded the riches within..."


Mission: If you deem yourself worthy, you along with a party of twenty brave souls will venture into the depths of Pandora's Box, overcoming its many trials in order to reach its center, where many untold riches lie waiting to be claimed.


Time: Feb 6th-8th / 6 PM - 12 AM Pacific Time Zone

Definitions:


KO: 
Unconscious. When a character hits 0 HP. May be revived with a Life Balm/Blossom.
Incapacitated: No longer able to participate in the RP. To become incapacitated:
                3 KO's
                Failure to notify group if you can't make it.


Rules: 


:bulletyellow: 20 people maximum may join in this RP. RSVP by commenting on the journal below by stating "I'm joining" along with a link to the character you wish to use. 
                (Max two characters per person. Extra characters do not take up space.)

:bulletyellow: If you are not able to attend on one of the days, tell us in the comment section below. If you fail to do so, your character will be considered incapacitated and will force a penalty upon your team.

:bulletyellow: You may only have 3 of each type of item. 
                (Ex: you can only use 3 Panaceas for the rp)

:bulletyellow: When your character reaches 0 HP, they will KO.  If your character becomes incapacitated (After 3 KOs or failure to show up), they are ineligible to winning any of the rewards other than EXP/Discs.

:bulletyellow: If someone has to leave mid RP or can't be there for the day, someone not on the list can 'hop in' by bringing in their character. So there's at least a chance for those who couldn't get on the list. 

:bulletyellow: Participants attend at least 2 of the 3 days of rping to be eligible to earning the rewards.


Tips:


:bulletgreen: Stock up on healing and stat boosting items.
:bulletgreen: See if you can level up prior to the rp. The stronger your stats the better.
:bulletgreen: Start rping with those who you know will enter the labyrinth. It makes it easier for you and your OC to traverse the dangers if they're with familiar allies.


Rewards: 


:bulletblue: Exp/Disc Reversal Gem (One time use)
:bulletblue: Elpis' Amulet (+20 HP)
:bulletblue: Title: CONQUEROR OF CHAOS (+40 to two stats of your choosing)
:bulletblue: 500 Exp/Discs

hrmmm, I tend to shrink all my images down before posting, no wider than 800-1000 pixels. Do you guys look at the deviation details to check original resolution size? If so, I can upload the full size and use dA's view resizer.  If you want to actually see the image in its original size instead, can I send you guys sta.sh links? I'm not comfortable posting anything to the public at original size. I usually start all my works in a square canvas, 3000pxls being the minimum width. I add more canvas space as I work, so size only goes up from there.

I never realised the pixel size requirement-- Now I can't help but wonder how it applies to scanned traditional art, since one can jack it up in pixel size through scanning resolution, and in my own opinion the same pixel-sized things done digitally and traditionally have different ... "working sizes". As in, I spend more time in drawing a 300 dpi A4-sized digital art than a 300 dpi A4-sized traditional one.

... This might be my half of a soul talking, just woke up, ignore me. /rolls away

At that point I just have to trust people who work on traditional, because at that point it gets too technical and I wouldn't know how to compensate for it size wise. OTL

Oh damn, I didn't realize pixel size mattered with exp. I always shrink stuff down to having 900px on the biggest side so I can use full view on featured deviations for my DA page xD I guess I should submit at full size for now on lawl.
