The Earth is Hollow!
The Sky Guard has discovered a 200-mile-long "Sink" in the British territory of Tanganyika, a hole bored deep into the Earth that comes out -- into a whole other Earth on the inside of the globe! There do not appear to be any human civilizations within, but there is evidence that a Drachenordnung expedition arrived first, only to be driven off by the inhabitants. For the Center of the Earth is filled with creatures long thought extinct, including dinosaurs, megafauna, and who knows what else.
The Sky Guard are currently exploring the area of the Center of the Earth surrounding the Sink, with their only opposition the creatures that stalk this prehistoric land, but will soon become embroiled in more battles against fascist interlopers and threats larger than any they have faced before.
We're re-opening The Savage Skies (or rather, returning to GMing for it, it's technically been open this entire time). This time, we're acknowledging that life gets in the way of a heavily-GMed story (for us, at least). We will be running serial adventures, with 1-3 months of relatively-heavily GMed adventure followed by 2-4 months of the Sky Guard being placed in locations where action is easy to find. You can find out about our Current Adventure here
It's kinda shocking how much a one-sentence 'application' mitigates this
Oh, sure, I'm not at all against requiring apps for rosters. I was just pointing out that it's a system option. You can require apps for a single character, all characters, or none of them.
But if you ARE going to require apps, then you need a way to talk to the person applying. That means either getting their email or letting them make up a player bit. Either way, it requires communication on the part of staff to let the player know what's up. No amount of code can substitute for that :)
Upvote for Aggretsuko. I had forgotten about that show and it is very good and very funny. It also crosses cultural boundaries pretty well, so you don't have to worry about not getting some bit of humor that deals with the nuances of the Japanese workplace.
