Welcome to the Playground! This is an Out Of Character area that can be edited by anyone. Even you, sitting there! Yes, you! However, beware that everyone (including those without accounts) can view it, so it isn't safe for In Character secrets. You have been warned!

If you want to upload pictures, you can place them in the playground namespace on the Media Manager. We're happy for people to use this, but please be reasonable - don't overload it with massive files, and obviously don't put up anything objectionable.


On the Origins page too. And only a highlight. Now why would he be making minor alterations on what is basically only a character creation issue weeks after the game finished?

Yeah we should continue monitoring the recent changes and see if we can work out what's happening.

Well we have to get out F5 fix from somewhere!

I needed to edit something in order to get an edit on RC…

Am I a bad person? Probably. Yes.


The tracklist for the GM CD can now be found on the wiki here

Other Eternity Content

For fic, art, other things.

For those who paid attention to ELLIE/Siren

External content

This is a place to link any player or GM created content that is hosted externally. Please note that these can be as IC or OC as you like, but rest assured that these will have no bearing on how game plays out. Namely, you cannot be added to the Aegis Most Wanted list for anything on another site like twitter. These are not policed by GMs, but if you have an issue with anything listed here feel free to ask a GM about it.

Please feel free to add things without asking GMs.






Yeah, and why are they doing High School AU roleplaying - they have eternities to write (yes I know who you are *glares at GM team*) - CA

This *is* Eternity - CA




Thanks to Dave for stealing all your time by creating an actual Superhub.

This is designed to be a suplement to the game, similar to Twitter accounts. Importantly nothing posted here is IC, and accounts must not be an account for your character. There are a few rules for the boards (which will be posted there as well):

  1. Accounts must not be related to any character, PC or NPC
  2. Don't sign up with your CRISIS email - oh dear god the spam!
  3. Things posted on the boards will not have consequences in game, and may not effect the game in any way (information from the game can be observed on the boards, but not the other way around)
  4. The GMs reserve the right to nuke any post at any time, but will leave an OOC note that a post has been OOC nuked to differentiate from IC moderation
  5. Posts after the turnsheet deadline which discuss current events are discouraged, and we certainly won't make allowances for players to change their turnsheets based on this (so the “which furies do you ship?” thread is fair game, the “what's the moon plan guys?” thread isn't)

The rest of the playground

First (rest of) playground edit GET!

  5. Thor approves of images on the Playground
  6. Jokes from old games are tired and boring
  7. Editing things is big and clever
  8. The Playground is not consistent
  9. The Playground is love

Reasons. :P - EB

Lightning fast edit there. Someone's totally not watching Recent Changes… - TL

Pfft, I'm totally not the only one! - EB

I am Recent Changes. - E.L.L.I.E

No you're not. You're just some weird flashback to HORATIO, who always wanted to be a real boy.

I can totally see Isaac Galahad Noble and Avalon having something. It may be either a beautiful romance or a duel to the death…. - AB

And they both have capes.

Ad: Mystery Captain Price - Samantha approves a LOT

Surely Samantha has something else to worry about? – JC


Because its happening in a restaurant called Corin's… So I had too… -PR

AB: Are you sure that you want the GMs getting ideas about threatening Sam with fanfic? - JC

That would be amusing *mental image of a hyperactive squirrel viciously tearing the printout of the fanfic into pieces* – AB

Really? The “NOT a mad scientist” guy is the designated protagonist? - AG

@AG Bioware prides itself on character customization. - FG

CRISIS Olympics

Are we really doing this again?!
Absolutely, it was my crowning achievement in Paradiso (after killing the Kraken (Corin Walters killed the Kraken (Believe!)) , finding all (but one) of the civilisations, organising the UPF, etc.)!
*JamesW looks dubiously from the ex-CAMPO chair*
*Ben's ego intensifies.*
I am still expecting Xenophon to appear out the chest of Kyros… he is from the future, after all…
Wait a minute. In paradiso there was an apocalypse caused by laser satellites. In crisis there are laser satellites. Thus CRISIS is Paradiso before the apocalypse and the EVENT Kyros has been sent back to stop is the activation of the laser satellites! Xenophon must be a descendant of Kyros (before he got turned into a cyborg). I now consider this canon. How canon works


Most dubious “Good Guy”:
Gold Medal: Professor Corin Walters

Gold Medal: Closest Continuer
Silver Medal: E·L·L·I·E (you try being a series of servers)
Bronze Medal:?

Most appropriate Bird-named Superhero - NOBODY TELL GINGER:

Gold Medal: The Magpie (he's a jewel thief, its perfect!)
Silver Medal: The Pigeon
Bronze Medal: Siren
Honourable Mention: Maxwell Byrd (although he doesn't sing, most birds do)

Most ridiculous creative power:

Things the Kamalani Centre has been called

Kalamari Centre
Kamasutra Centre
Kalamani Centre
Kalumni Centre
Cannelloni Centre

Wait, it's the Kamalani Centre? I thought it was the Kalamani Centre…

*Mike grumbles in a corner*

Sorry! I was concentrating so hard on not calling it the Kalamari Centre…

Things the Kamalani Centre is rarely called

Kamalani Centre

Restoration is fine, but we already redacted this bit once by GM fiat

The Six Million Dollar Page

The playground, a wiki page. A page with barely any merit.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the technology. We have the capability to make the world's first actually-funny metacommentary. The playground will be that page. Better than it was before. Better… funnier… less filled with [redacted] over our characters.

Why is there no like button? *Like* - JW, PS

An actually-funny metacommentary? That's a bold strategy, Cotton.

It is well-known that Clefairies come from the moon!

The naming of the Moop


  • Moop
  • Moonooze
  • Moononnaise
  • Moopets
  • Mooze
  • Mime
  • Mlime
  • Moo
  • Carnivorous Ooze With a Particular Appetite for Technology → C.O.W.P.A.T. ?
  • MOOP: Motile Organic Omni-Phage

I doubt the Moop actually originates on the Moon; its probably alien/from deep space. Anyone for Aloop or Spoop?


Because Why Not

Oscar Wilde in the back of that makes this just glorious.
I know right, its my favourite thing! -SE


Yes, we're doing this


Totally totally doing this

./Hacker Elite

What it feels like to play Akane…

What it feels like to play...

What it feels like to play Kyros (imagine all the cops are Evil Mutant Gamasot Scientists and the coffin contains Chief Evil Mutant Scientist Kelly Moon):

So, Kyros works for a supercomputer that wants to destroy humanity? Oh, the irony.

The key parallel in the above video is how badass Kyros is, plus you have to remember in terminator II and III (and Genisys, the new one) the terminator has been sent back to save everyone from judgement day (the apocalypse). (edit: just changed it to graveyard shootout, more representative of Kyros's style).

Yeah… Note that when the T800 tries to save the world he doesn't kidnap and torture people and his kill count is 000.0 (always liked the decimal there). Not the best parallel for Kyros then.

It wasn't torture, just Enhanced Interrogation. Also I'd prefer the phrase “extradition to extrajudicial court” than “kidnapping”. Plus Kyros didn't kill anyone at Gamasot (do Evil Genetically Mutated Plants count?).

What it feels like to play ELLIE

What it feels like to play AGAINST Damien Hawkes?

What it feels like to play Anathema (NB: Just a guess on my part - Ben)

What it feels like to play Isaac Noble (according to Samantha) From 1:02

What it feels like trying to sell myself to a new boss, as deaddrop.

What is feels like to play CAMPO

What it's actually like playing CAMPO

What it feels like to GM SPEAR plot

What it feels like to attack Primary Testing

What it feels like to read the Turn 4 News after spending the game trying to convince everyone what Gamasot is up to

What it feels like to play Avalon

→ Is it bad that I'm imagining the acorn as Anathema? - SE

What it actually felt like to play Kyros

What I imagine it's like playing in SPEAR whenever the news comes out:

What it now feels like to play Samantha Glade:

What it feels like to be Mister I as of Session 5 and the subsequent emails:

What I was expecting it be feel like to play Cpt. Price (key word: expecting - AB)

What it feels like to play Siren

What it feels like to play Lord Luck or ELLIE (session 6)

What it feels like Oculus players are doing


“A cross between Nigel Farage and Columbo.”
“Played by Matthew, so inherits his OOC sexiness.”
-Quotes by some people (presumably)

How dare the GMs strip me of my god-given right to spam the wiki. Kiwi is presumably part of the metropolitan liberal elite who opposes the common man and wishes to destroy [cont on pg94]
How dare Ellie strip me of my god-given right to spam the wiki. Ellie is presumably aprt of the metropolitan liberal elite who opposes the common man and wishes to destroy [cont on pg95]
How dare X strip me of my god-given right to spam the wiki. X is presumably aprt of the metropolitan liberal elite who opposes the common man and wishes to destroy [cont on pg2^94]
There, that's better.

The wiki ain't free. The playground gotta be litterd with the blood of vandals. ELLIE a.k.a. “els” is not my frend. it is a robot tyrant and probably a member of the illuminermati as well :DD. peter o'neil and big ukip ads not ANYTHING ELSE ok. praise o'neil.


The "FIVE" Alignments of CRISIS!

Team Goody Two Shoes: We've killed lots of people, but it was all by accident.

Team Greater Good: We've killed lots of people, but it was all for the Greater Good.

Team Greatest Good: We've killed everyone except us, but it's okay because we'll replace them with superior forms of life.

Team Lesser Evil: We've killed lots of people, but we were just making mischief/we'd rather not have.

Team Evil: We've killed lots of people, that was the point.

Team Sorry?: We've not killed anyone… (that's what you want us to believe!) No, seriously, I've killed no one. -JM

Team Temple: We haven't killed anyone either! Nope. They just decide not to go outside much any more…

Team Capital City Residents: Maybe we should move….

Team Madness: We really don't mind we've killed lots of people

Team Lawful Corporate: Are you still spreading rumours about those very much accidental deaths? We'll see you in court.

Team TESSIE: Did you mean accidental death?

Team Evil Corporate: I hereby charge “Team Sorry?” with 56 counts of first degree murder, 83 counts of manslaughter and 302 counts of assault with a deadly weapon.

Team Anonymous: How cute. You all think you can afford lawyers. When was the last time you checked your bank accounts?

Team GM: An you're dead. And you're dead. And you're dead…

Team ELLIE: Well, now I can enact my evil plan to annihilate the human race. KIDDING. HONEST.

Team Neutral Good: Some of us actually understand how alignment axis' work!

Mascot Caption Competition

Mister I hears about Tartarus

Mister I as the election results are announced

Mister I realises SPEAR are the bad guys

That's only half the mascot…. Though on second thought, I don't think we want to know where the kraken is (especially not given that expression!)

James realises he's playing a good guy

Mister I spots the approaching Womble horde

“I will end y-…” *gets distracted thinking about all the other people he needs to end*

Victor White realises he's wandered into Blackout.

Dr Abominable watches XS-42 break into his lair.

Mister I after session 5.

So I reverse image searched this picture and I found this…

Reasons to suspect CRISIS! is reality

Things Crisis Characters Should Have Said...But Didn't

Lord Luck: “Everything I've done has come from a place of love…or humour”

Captain Price, upon leaving SPEAR: “I guess I'm Priced out of your market”

Lord Luck: “Dear Kelly, my benevolent mentor and employer,”
Anathema: “AVALON”
Unison: “There's been some confusion over housing in the Forge…“

Out Of Context CRISIS Quotes

“You don't bring a Garuda to a Dragon fight”

“What's polyamory?”

“the wolf drops”


“Can I give the cat a cigarette?”

“Just a quick ELLIE”

“Just a quick CAITLIN”

“We are NOT getting 3 elephants”

In Context CRISIS Quotes

Bliss: Teamwork is very important.
Nicasius (not missing a beat): I taught her that.
Bliss: My speciality is one-to-one personal liaison.
Nicasius (not missing a beat): I didn't teach her that.

Steph's inability to let Crisis end

Crisis 2: The MOOP Strikes Back
Crisis 2: Return of the MOOP
Crisis 2: A New MOOP

Crisis 2 is simply an environmental documentary about living through a moop epidemic. There are no heroes, or villains, or for that matter buildings. There is only the moop, and the struggles of the survivors living amidst an ocean of sentient sludge intent on eating them. - JTM

Crisis 2: MOOPworld

Crisis 2: MOOP Drop.

Crisis 2 : Electric MOOPaloo

Crisis 2: This time, it's MOOP.


Demonic Pudding

With thanks to Rowan for pointing this out :

Couch, the Last Universal Constant

The couch turns out to be a Universal Constant, Couch. Cameron becomes obsessed with playing them, abandoning Despair entirely and allowing Steph to destroy the corner shop and get away with it entirely. Justice is merged this turn, but is ultimately killed (along with Death) by Couch's magnificently overpowered abilities.

Noble Keep is subsumed into the afterlife, as is the rest of Scotland. The World Government reinstates SPEAR as an exclusively anti-furniture taskforce, CHAIR.
