    Random Events Opt-Out


    What are Random Events?

    Random events are meant to illustrate the unpredictable, chaotic nature of Pandora. They can be anything from big events - such as a power outage over a city block or a sudden raging storm - or very small things, like a gust of wind that knocks everything out of your character's hands, or a family of ducks stepping out into the middle of the road.

    Staff will never use random events to physically harm your characters, though the events themselves may be dangerous in some way. You always have the choice of how to react to these events. We will also use our best discretion to avoid posting random events in threads that read as very intimate or plot-important.

    Opting Out

    If you would like to opt-out of Random Events, please let us know here! You have three options:
    • Opt-out with all characters. This means that we will never post random events in any of your threads.
    • Opt-out with a specific character.
    • Opt-out for a specific thread. Use this option if you have a particular thread you don't want interrupted!
    Opting-out can be permanent or temporary. If you've opted-out, you can post here at any time to let us know that you'd like to opt back in.

    There isn't a specific form you need to use. You simply need to make it clear which character(s) you're opting out with. If you're opting-out with a specific thread, include the link to the thread.

    I'd like to opt out of this for now, while I like the idea of Pandora being random I just don't know how I feel about the possibility of a random interjection into a thread for now.

    I'd like to opt out with all my characters. Like Chen, I like Pandora's randomness, but only from an IC standpoint. OOC-wise, I'm pretty picky about how my threads progress so I don't see myself enjoying this feature.

    I gave it a bit of a thought and I think I'd like to opt out of this entirely for now.

    I'd like to opt out of this for now, I may decide otherwise when I have got more used to the new Pandora but for the moment opting out with all my characters.

    I really like this idea but I'm going to default to opting out with both @James McGill and @Qrow Branwen and when a thread comes up where I'd be down to have a random event, I'll open them up! :)

    (I wonder if it would be easier if there was a list of threads and characters that were opted-in?)

    For the time being, I think I'd like to opt out of this. I like the sound of the idea on paper, but if I need extra danger or a pressing concern, I think whoever I am threading with and myself can add that ourselves to keep it consistent with the endgame in the thread we're aiming for.
