Tyler's apartment was, technically, already clean. At least, clean by her rather loose standards. Who knew what the standards of the people bringing Conan by were, though.
The dishwasher was rumbling away, and the TV droned on about sports or traffic or something. What could be vacuumed had been vacuumed, what could be dusted had been dusted, and what she'd originally planned to make an office had a bed in it again.
So long as they didn't want to know the state of her own bedroom, she was probably good.
With nothing else to do, Tyler sat on the couch, trying to distract herself with some generic phone game. Considering how often she was checking the time, it wasn't exactly working.
She'd already informed the doorman of her coming guests, and given them permission to buzz the two in. All she had to do was wait for the knock.

The full moon approaches (it's tomorrow, in fact), and that means it's time for another Lunar Event!
This time, instead of just tossing a thread out, we have a quick-and-dirty sign-up thread for you guys. If you're interested in participating in the event, please respond to this thread with the character(s) you're planning on joining with!
We will try to accommodate everyone, but if we're unsure about our ability to keep up we may restrict the number of characters a single player may use during the event. Hopefully this won't be the case.

The Job Board
is now open for business!
The job board provides a way for users to request moderated "quest" threads, either alone or in a group, allowing a more direct way to interact with the City. We may also post event jobs there, so keep an eye out.
This system is untested and should be considered a work in progress. If you have suggestions or concerns, let the staff know here in this thread, via PM, or in the Discord.

Here at the City BBS, we strive to make it easy to connect with the City community. In order to support our growing population, we have added a new service: the Job Request System. Whether you’re looking for a quick buck, some new connections, or simply want to help others out, the JRS is here to provide.
Simply post to the designated board with your name, the type of work you’re seeking, and whether you’d rather work alone or with a team, and the JRS will match you with both a suitable job and any willing partners if you so desire. We at City BBS hope that the Job Request System will assist you in your life in the City!
We at the City BBS are not responsible for any physical, psychological, metaphysical, chronological, metaphorical, or existential harm caused by use or inability to use the Job Request System. Jobs entered in the Job Request System have not been reviewed by sapient intelligence. We do not guarantee any compensation for completion of jobs acquired through the Job Request System.
are moderated, story-driven threads between a player or group of players and a moderator acting as the storyteller. Jobs provide an alternate way to interact with the City, as well as a more direct way to make their mark upon the world.
Jobs can be taken solo or as a small group, and are initiated by posting a new thread in the Job Request System board. A moderator will then respond with one or several potential jobs for you to choose from. If taking a job as a group, you can do it as a pre-formed party, or opt for a randomly matched partner in your request. Note that if you opt for a random partner, you may have to wait until another person also opts for a random partner before you get a job.
To request a job, post a new thread using the template below. To keep things clean, you should try to maintain a single thread per character, which can then be reused.
[b]Applicant[/b]: [Character name]
[b]Preferred Job Type[/b]: [Diamond, Spade, Heart, Club]

[b]Notes:[/b] [If you have any additional requests, place them here.
There are four categories of job you can take up on the Job board, categorized as Diamond, Spade, Heart, and Club jobs.Diamond
jobs are straightforward tasks, centered around achieving a specific goal. This could include clearing out an infestation in a basement, rescuing someone held hostage by a gang, or something as basic as acquiring some groceries for a very important dinner. These jobs are typically straightforward, but that doesn’t mean you won’t have complications along the way.Spade
jobs involve exploration and discovery as their primary goal. You may be tasked to patrol the Industrial District by the city police, delve into the sewers to investigate rumors, or even enter one of the Liminal Rifts to bring back relics and knowledge. While combat skills are not required, having a way to make a quick escape is important. The goal of a Spade quest can be vague, but some may enjoy the flexibility of determining their own end.Heart
jobs are social tasks, where a sharp tongue and quick wit will serve you best. Negotiations, interrogations, and investigations are all possible Heart jobs. While you may not have to worry about combat, dealing with the intricacies of City society and social networks can be as difficult a battle as anything physical.Club
jobs require both strength and ruthlessness. These are the shakedowns, the protection rackets, the knife in the right heart in the right place. Most Club jobs skirt the City’s laws, if not transgressing them entirely, but if you’re willing to take the risk they can result in some powerful connections. Sometimes you need a little violence to change the world.
