Welcome to Mystic Ista
We are an alt-pern game whose concept is basically what if Pern was Pern, but with magic? We're set at the beginning of the 9th pass, in a world without Lessa or F'lar or any of them. Let's see how Pern Survives without them.
Goal Based Ascension: To do things like graduate weyrlinghood or become eligible for Impression, you set yourself a number of IC goals based on the difficulty of the task. Those IC goals are small roleplaying checkpoints, such as "meet 5 people", and when you complete the required number, you complete the overarching task- such as graduate weyrlinghood. It lets you go on your own pace, and encourages roleplay.
Member Run Clutches: Although there will be staff-run official clutches, there is also the mechanic built in for members to create their own clutches. This game is planned to run on the small-clutches-more-frequently-model, with the spaces between the staff clutches (2-4 times a year) filled by member clutches.
Magic and Mutations and More Being a non-canon game, we have a magic system in place, where you have one magical character per X number of non-magical characters, dependent on the sort of magic they use. We also have mutation colors, and the potential for more.
None yet, but 3 in vague planning stages- flit, dragon, dragon.
We don't know as much about the dragons as we thought we did.

Sooo...as I've probably mentioned to some of you, I'm going abroad to Greece for a three month field school this fall :3 I leave Sept. 5/11 and return Nov. 29/11. That said, this is less of an actual going-away post and more of a potential slow-posting/scarcity warning, as there will be wireless available and I will have my laptop with me. [rambling below for more detail]
I'm an archaeology student, and I'm really excited about the opportunity to be working on a real excavation, and in a lab, even if it is basically the grunt work and processing pottery <.< YAY GREEK POTTERY SHARDS! \o/ ALSO GOOD is the fact that there WILL be internet in the place where I am staying, so...I should still be around throughout this period. I will almost definitely be around slightly less than I have, because I'll be working on a dig and taking advantage of life in Greece, but I WILL be here. :3
So yes. I figured I ought to post now so a) I don't forget and b ) you have some advance warning. I'm leaving on Sept. 5/11 and will hopefully be able to access internet by Sept. 11. The intervening week will be full of travel, so I really don't know what that will look like.
I'll update here the day I leave, and hopefully also when I'm in Greece to let you know the situation there!
