[The post starts off merely as a video thumb with that familiar play button in the middle. If you press that button, an embed video file begins to play in your browser.

At first, there appears to be an indecipherable 3D diagram of blue binary lines running both vertically and horizontally. The lines overlap one another in an undefinable pattern that is not yet readily apparent. As the numbers move, ever changing and running off-screen, the image finally changes to something a little more recognizable. Series of plain black text boxes begin to fill the screen and layer up with commands. At first the commands are simple with words like "INFILTRATE" and "ACCESSING..." before the speed with which the lines are being generated make it impossible to keep up. Even pausing the video won't help you, the recording doesn't have enough definition.

As more and more data fills the screen, the spam of lines across the screen finally halts. The more observant of you might notice it's because the counter in the top-right corner, the counter for the recording, not the video playing on your screen, has stopped. Whoever is showing you this has paused it at this spot for a reason.

The first is the date revealed on the lowest line, helpfully highlighted by a yellow circle that appears around it. The date goes back to mid-April, right when all those ghosts began to show their faces.

The second highlight goes to a line beneath it,

For a few moments that lingers on your screen before the video continues. As a new window opens with "RAKUEN CITY ROUNDS" as its proud title, the data extraction reveals that there are a staggering amount of files in this folder. Lines begin to fill the blank space, each labeled with a date. Dates that, notably, go waaaaaay back in time. As the counter at the bottom continues to climb rapidly, hitting the thousands within seconds, the number reaches just over 1800 files before a new box appears on the screen.


The box lingers there for a moment before all the data on the screen goes miserably black.

After the video ends, there is a moment of silence. Then, quietly, a soft, electronic but distinctly male voice speaks.]

These are the incomplete findings of my investigation into the city. I was unable to reveal them earlier as I have been offline since then. My program was corrupted by the city's defense system. [His voice is notably lacking in emotion and range of voice as he speaks.] I conclude that the apparitions that appeared in April were projections produced by residual data of previous students of Fortitude and Conquest. I also believe that the Exaclan games have been going on for a very long time.

[There's a pause as the screen continues to remain blank. Finally, after a long moment of silence, he finally speaks again.]

This information is now yours. Act in accordance with your will.

[And the feed ends.]

[ooc: Hubris is back and with information this time! Those attempting to trace Hu's posting signal will start to find that it's... actually coming from the city itself now.]

I am tiring of this place and the way it toys with my memories.

If a player from Fortitude is in need of a weapon, I offer my sword. All I ask in return is that you use my raks to purchase the rest of my memories. I refuse to allow this to happen to me anymore.

Suzaku, a word when you have the time.

That is all.

Okay, this has gone on long enough!

I know one of you out there has my bracelet. Don't start thinking I can't track you down without your name. This is a small place, and you have some unique features.

If you give it back, I'll keep your habit of climbing through windows our little secret. If you don't ... well, I have no reason to do you any more favors.

I hope that's clear enough for you.

[When the video cuts on, you can see the side of Cirno's dress but can hear her voice. Someone did not mean to turn this thing on. If one was to look closely, one could notice she is at the dorms. ]

Hey! Sanae, Where have you been? I haven't seen you....Wait...No....Sanae this isn't funny...You can't...

[There is a clunk as the PDA falls to the ground and shows Cirno's face as words fail her. It's a sad and shocked expression slowly fading into anger. She stands there a moment before lashing out at the wall, punching it a few times before taking off with a frustrated scream, leaving the device there on the ground, like she never knew she had it.]

((OOC- She's taken off. If you want to look for her, just let me know in the comments. Otherwise she's just going to hide where she has run off to for a few days.))

The next time I end up shitfaced without any trousers on, I'd rather it be because I tried to drink a dwarf under the table, not... whatever happened there.

What happened, anyway? I've been asleep for days. Not the fun kind of sleep with naughty dreams, either.

Oh, well. Classes will resume. I hope you kids thought of a good drinking game by now.

Calling for beta testers!

I've been working on a lovely little application for your PDAs. Are you tired of constantly checking the forums and networks to see if your friends won their fights? Want to check who your friend has vowed to, and if they've recently checked into the infirmary? There's an app for that!

Well, mostly. It's still a bit buggy, and doesn't have the fastest update time, but that's why I am seeking beta testers! I've decided to open six slots to players who are extremely active in the game. I need people who will use the program, and are willing to submit reports letting me know about crashes or other bugs that might come up.

Signing up will be first-come-first-served, with three slots open to each campus. The Beta is free, and upgrade to the official release will be at a 50% discount.

  1. Jade Harley
  2. Shion

  1. Lemina Ausa
  2. Flynn Scifo

I should probably write up some kind of EULA, but let it be known if anything happens to your PDA because of the program, I am not accountable. I'm also not accountable for what's done with the information, but I reserve the right to revoke program access without refund if I determine the information is being misused. All in all, I don't think there should be problems with the first part at least.

  • Check status of residents (Player, vowed and with whom, discard)
  • Check battle history
  • Be informed real-time about starts of battles.
  • Option to have changes in a weapon's status, battle starts, and/or battle results sent as notifications to your PDA
Features to come in future updates:
  • Lists of upgrades unlocked for each person
  • Linked partners, players with undead charms

((OOC: The program is going to have a bit of a lag, about 5 minutes between battle start and the actual notifications, and the same thing for the rest of the information. It'll crash every so often, especially during something like a tournament where there will be a lot of information changing. This will improve with time. When it comes out of Beta, the people who have it from this post will still have service for a round before they need to purchase the new release, though they get it at half off.))

As before, I will be taking command of the actual battle. Players, you have a responsibility to all of those around you to collect the weapons with the most compatible upgrades to your battle style and spreading them to your battery of Weapons. Dual wield penalties did not apply during the previous battle. Draw a sword from someone and put it in the hands of someone that can use it best. There was also an elemental advantage enjoyed by some weapons during the last battle. When we know what that is, those weapons with that advantage are of the highest priority. Those with swords will be the front line, and those with ranged weapons will be the second. If we maintain and even, strong, steady line of attack against it, we will surely win.

I'm not interested in entertaining any criticism anyone may have regarding my suitability for this role. Either listen to what I have to tell you and be assured of victory, or ignore me and be defeated.

Shion, Alex, you heard the announcement. The tower's opening. You know what that means for me, I'll be inside where it's safe. Want to come hang out in my dorm while the people that won't get killed fight?

[Duzell turns on the PDA to send a quick message. His voice sounds a little strained compared to usual, but nothing overtly obvious.]

You, weapon. Don’t stray too far. You’d better not ruin my streak.

[He is about to turn the thing off, when a sudden thought causes him to pause.]

Ishtar, have you gone up yet?

[Don't you just love seeing this face?]

Welcome to the first tournament round, I hope you're looking forward to it. Actually, you better put on a good show, you really don't want to be boring. Here's the deal, the winner of the tournament will get a prize, but I'm going to sweeten the deal for you. The winning team, Players and Weapons, will get 100 Raks each from my personal savings, but that's only if you make the finals interesting. No BSing your way though it, got it?

You're also required to battle out side of the tournament, so don't let that slow you down.

Conquest, you don't want to lose again. I'll make sure of it.

[Who knows if he’s even doing this right? He had gleaned some information from random humans passing by, but if they were too stupid to know what they were saying, then he just wasted his time on them. He would much rather use his battle prowess to get his way, but there seems to be some kind of strange blockage preventing access to his magical abilities. He is not happy about that at all.

Duzell looks down at the small screen with a bored expression as he tinkers with the foreign item. How did he get a hold of this PDA? …Don’t ask.]

Whatever idiot is running this thing, call off the stupid game. Find someone else to play with.

It is highly likely that the six "devils" guarding the "stars" are beasts guarding the towers scattered about this city, if last week's incident was any indication. Now that we are aware of the requirements for opening these towers, it would be prudent to organize a party to open a second.

It would be far too convenient if the same four prefects were capable of opening multiple towers. I suspect we will need four new prefects, one from each dormitory if the colors of the plaques on the doors are any indication. Lelouch, is this assumption correct?

I was originally assigned to the white dormitory. Volunteers from the other three would be appreciated.

((OOC: So uh Golbez wants another tower thing to occur now that he's made prefect. Volunteer/talk him out of it/whatever?))

....Okay...is this thing on?! Jeez...this place got some funny ruelle mirrors. Let me get this straight. First off this isn't a whacky dream, second off I can't remember a load of things that I should and three, what is this I'm hearing about fighting?

I mean I got an explanation and all but c'mon you can't expect a girl to totally understand that right?

....I can't even remember what I was suppose to be doing before getting here...it's freaky.
