Character Movements

Character Movements

For the most part, characters are allowed to travel from uncovered square to uncovered square and gather basic items on their own, provided they announce what they're taking on the appropriate page. However, it's important that we can keep track of how everyone is moving daily, and you and your characters may want to search for more plot-relevant items. There are also squares on the map that no one has traveled to, and remain a mystery until explicitly uncovered. Thus, this page and the search page have been created for your use.

You must report your character's movements in your thread. We want to make sure you haven't made any math mistakes and keep characters from accidentally teleporting around the map, for one, and we also want to make sure your character gets to experience any location-relevant situations. We will respond to your characters' movement updates within 48 hours with any monsters they would have run into that day and anything that would happen of note on a specific square your character traveled through, in addition to pointing out any math errors. In the case of monster encounters, while the day they happen on is random, you will be able to select exactly where they encounter them. You will have to respond to us telling us how the character(s) handled the monster. Unless something unusual happens, we will not reply to your character movement updates.

How much searching and traveling your character can do is based on the weather, any movement penalties your character may have, and any events that may otherwise hinder travel. Common sources of movement penalties are injury and being over-encumbered--if you want to try and drag a mattress around with you, don't expect to get anywhere very quickly!

Travel and search are based on the squares of the map, and all actions are discussed in terms of squares. All searching uses up squares, which means every search reduces the amount of squares your character can travel. Searching requires square use as well, and is added on top of square movement, so make sure to double check your math! Moving to a square and searching a building in that square both have to be thought of as separate things, not as using the same amount of time. We will provide a limit of the amount of squares your characters have to act, which encompasses all actions a character takes that day;; if they go over that limit, they will not be able to do anything beyond the last action that would have used up a legitimate block of time.

Searches are split up into quick searches and thorough searches. A quick search takes up one square of travel time per building or area searched, while a thorough search takes up two squares of travel time per building or area searched. If you thoroughly search three buildings on one square, that would take up all of your movement at once, two per building searched.

First, reply to this thread to make a top level comment where all of your location check-ins will go. This thread should have your character's name in the subject line. Make sure to reference the setting page where necessary and let us know who is traveling with you. You can also use the character location spreadsheet that lists where characters are on various days, so you can more easily see where everyone is and how it relates to your character. This is player-updated, so feel free to edit for your character as necessary if you see something missing!

To report character movements, just use this form, making sure to put the IC day in the subject line.


If your character would like to alter something written in the basic description of a square or building, this is also the place to put that! For example, if your character really is going to give dragging a mattress around a try, they can take one from a house if you let us know. We can both adjust the descriptions of the locations and tell you potential results/penalties. To do this, fill out the following form and reply to your top level, making sure to note the IC date in the subject line:


To search for items left in buildings by other characters, or have your character leave items in a building, please use this post and NOT the location alteration form.

To inform us your character is searching for plot-relevant items or traveling into unexplored squares, please go to the search page.

There have been two old movement posts. The oldest search page with the oldest search results is kept here. The second oldest search page is here.

They take off towards the nearest building (171), Alfie, as always, being helped along and half-carried by Royce.

(how much does this anomaly look like it could be Emily, btw)

They're SUPER UPSET but they know the drill by now, and don't stop to get a closer look; they know it's an anomaly.

Sometime in the middle of the night, Alfie (under the influence of the bottle of wine he and Royce polished off together) will scoot over to the door and lean against it, trying to talk soothingly to the creature. He'll tell it that it'll be all right, that he's sorry, and that it needs to go to sleep. He'll even sing it a lullaby.
