[OOC] Contact Post

If you need to reach me for any reason -- whether that's to plot RP stuff, ask a question, or just comment on something you've seen here, this is the place to do it.

Comments are screened by default, and if you'd rather I reply via email or something so the reply doesn't unscreen your comment, let me know.

I can also be reached via AIM as foppishtrollop pretty much 24/7, though I've usually got an away message up. Don't let that stop you, though.

the chosen prophet

[Locked to Wanderers and allies, locked against third parties]

Given the recent violent attacks on Riftcomers, I'm now urging all of you who have no place to go to find shelter in one of the established strongholds.

Right now, I'm working on finding a safer place for those who've chosen to follow me. In the meantime, those of you staying with me at the moment are welcome to go to the Main Gauche, the Conrad Hotel, or the Kashtta Tower. I won't fault you for leaving, though I hope to see you again once we've relocated.

Make safety your first priority. I don't advocate returning violence with violence, but do whatever you must to keep yourselves safe.

The woman found beaten to death was Victoria Lynn. She believed as I do, that the Riftcomers carry the potential to be the saviors of this world, and, although she was born here, she was an invaluable aid to me, and to us. She's done more for Riftcomers than I can say, and she will be deeply missed.

This isn't just about the Riftcomers. Anyone who helps them, anyone who doesn't belong, anyone that the so-called Chicago Liberation Front could label as a 'freak' -- all of you are in danger.

One of the people who works with me is a clairvoyant, whose visions focus on Riftcomers. Lately, he's been subjected to non-stop visions of what's been happening in this city, and from those, we know that the original complaint might not even be against Riftcomers themselves. These people have no way of differentiating between Riftcomers and demons. 'Wanderer' is a convenient label they slap on anyone that doesn't seem to belong, and even if only those who've come through the Rift are being targeted now, if it's unchecked, this will spread to demons, and possibly to angels as well.

the rift is angry

[Locked to Elashte]

Hello, old friend.

I know we were planning to have dinner at some point, but we never did get around to it. As much as I hate to impose, however, I think it would be best if we have that dinner sooner rather than later.

Recent events have made it important that I relocate my people to somewhere more defensible, and, given the success you've had with the Main Gauche, you seem to be the person to talk to. Money can be obtained, that's not an issue. Safety is.

You don't know me, and you have no reason to believe me. I'm just one man, with my beliefs and a few like-minded individuals, but this is something which concerns you all. It's my earnest hope that you'll give me a few minutes of your time, to read my words and to consider them.

Listen:

This was not an accident. Your presence here, the gifts you've received... None of these happened by chance.

Every universe that ever was or could be is affected by the Rift. From every possible world, you've been brought, and you've been changed. I believe there is a consciousness in the Rift, a purpose, and each and every one of you has a part to play in that grand design.

Look at the gifts you've been given, the abilities you never had before. Look around at those who have come with you, the warriors and healers and men of wisdom. How can you think this was an accident?

You were chosen. You are special. You are holy. You belong here.

You are the hope of this world. I most sincerely believe that.

As for myself... I have a deeper understanding of the Rift than most, but other than that, what matters is the message, not the messenger. I'm here to act as a guide, to help where I can.

To that end, I and several others have established another shelter for all those that have come through the Rift, independent of political affiliation, outside the wars of angels and demons. We offer shelter, food, and clothing for those who need it.

I don't ask for your belief -- only those who lack conviction in their own creed make aid contingent on acceptance of it. All I ask is that you listen, consider my words, and do as your heart dictates. We want nothing more than to help you, and to guide you, but it's not my place to force either upon you.

If you have need, or even if you're merely curious, you're welcome to visit us.

It seems I've arrived.

You've done quite well for yourself here, you know.
