Pretty sure Uffnewt is an anagram, though I won't say what I think it's an anagram of, in case people wanted to figure that out for themselves.
*whistles innocently* Well, that's gotta be a coincidence. =O Uffnewt is a totally original name.
And June, Rabbit, these character designs look so great!! I'm super psyched to meet them proper. =D
Annnnd the game is now up! We'll probably have a day or so for people to say hi and do some complaining and all that fun stuff, and then we'll start the first puzzle tomorrow. (There won't be a timeskip, and the puzzle shouldn't interrupt anything a huge amount, so if you're in the middle of an interaction then, you should be able to continue on.)

Have another character ref! \o/
This is Gibi (last name still pending), a well-meaning girl who always has an air of melancholy, and who seems to have a knack for telling when something unfortunate is about to happen (at least, when it may happen to her or those close to her).
So to clarify, should we include the puzzle pieces in our RP posts? I missed like every puzzle/RP event so idk how this works XD
It's up to you. The PC characters are solving this puzzle, but it doesn't need to be strictly done "onscreen" if you want to prioritize other interactions. You can post it IC, OOC or PM it to other players.
Yay, got a post up! (Alas, the game caught me on a day where I was sleep deprived and caught between things and undecided where exactly to take characterization, and I ended up needing another day to think. Thus, my intro post, "get my character to the main place" post, and "hey, a puzzle!" post are all in one. Hence the length. Sorry about that!)
Yup, another meteorologist character! This was planned before, I promise. xD Hopefully they're distinct! Speaking from experience, there are many types of people in one office. Basically, this is the type of person, in response to a terrifying hurricane, would go "oh wow that's amazing, look at that!!". Which I may or may not relate to, but I remember to go "oh, and this is also terrible."
Also, when I made my post draft, I wasn't really set on a name, and used a filler name. Wanting to post it soon but not wanting to take too long, I decided to go to the Writing channel of the discord for quick answers. And... Well. Here is the history of how Era got their name. Posted with permission of the participants.
GLQ Hm, I have a post typed up... But I'm second-guessing the name. xD Literally, the source of the name is "I need a name." (It's also going to be a long post; I'm sorry!) Rabbit Ah, I'm excited to read, GLQ. ^^ GLQ Thanks! I'm probably gonna change the name before I post, though. xD Rabbit Such is the writer's life. XD GLQ Yuuup. xD If people want to make suggestions: I need an androgynous name. It can be one the character chose for themself. I'm not thinking of a subdued name. Rabbit Maybe something like Ash or Casey? GLQ Hm, I did think of Ash! But I'm thinking more "burning" than "already burned." I'll look at Casey! Billie is one I'm looking at, but undecided. Rabbit Inferno? =D
Billie is nice, I like it. GLQ xD Maybe not that overt. Yeah. =D Though Billie might sound like a diminutive, so I don't know. Rabbit Looking online, I like Peyton and Dakota, personally. GLQ Hmm, Dakota was already used in a previous game by someone and I'm trying not to overlap. Peyton doesn't sound right. Alas, I like the definition behind Casey! But I dunno, it doesn't feel like them... *Reverse-searches for names that mean "vigilant."* ...Ooh! Or something that means "wind." =D Rabbit One of the names I found was Ari, which looks a lot like air. XD GLQ ... ...Lol. I found one that worked... And it's my filler name for them. xD Rabbit Ooh. XD GLQ ...Y'know what. That's fate. That's what it is. Rabbit Clearly fate. PFA You have no other choice GLQ I really don't. xD
==== And that's how I named Era~

On one hand, I had every intention of sticking to the meepitgang for the rest of the game. On the other hand, I just wanted to get the puzzle piece posted in relatively short order and using the gang would've made for very convoluted postwriting, so here we are.
And on the third hand we have two little mutant-hands where one feels I should go back to the meepitgang for the main POV after this and the other just really wants to team them up with Jeff the Totally Random Passerby.
I'll see how I feel once postwriting inspiration strikes again :'D
