All the requests in text-searchable form! If you want the .csv file of all requests to create a spreadsheet for the exchange of all requests, let me know!

Here is our achievement list. Let's see how many we can knock off!

Now, betas!

One of the more invaluable services in any exchange is a beta! While it is not necessary to have one in order to participate, betas can help by casting an eye over your work and giving opinions, making suggestions, or cheering you on in the dark hours of "oh God this is due in two hours and I have scrapped everything I did before".

If you are able to beta, please comment below with:

The DAI replay feels have become intense (thanks a lot guys), and I am valiantly resisting because Dishonored and also, this is the sort of game I have to block out a month on my schedule.

It's been long enough that I'm kinda hazy on my strategy beyond knowing that I want to pick the templars because I like their storyline better. (Dutifully accepting this makes me a hideous monster who should be stoned but can settle for praying for death. At least I know my options.)

I have decided BioWare can do whatever they want with the romances in DA4 because Josephine and Cullen's romances are honestly a gift and from here on I will happily embrace whatever dramalama they wish to throw at me. I am really interested in Sera and Solas and it looks like the Multiple Romance Mod has made good progress, but I may end up making divergent saves just because I'm so paranoid about conflicts, especially in Trespasser, not to mention they probably both have very different approval gains. In the past waiting to trigger advisor romances just before Wicked Hearts was a good strategy, not just for the pacing but for limiting the amount of content to re-replay, but for party characters I think I actually have to target their approval early on. IIRC I tried to trigger Solas' my first PT but I think I did something to block it early in the game and that was annoying. Sometimes the Solasmancers on Tumblr circulate new interesting details about Solas using flycam and whatnot, and each time I see those posts I'm like I gotta play through it, man. Hurt me good.

For the dozenth time, I really wish this game had a story mode, because I'm genuinely interested in playing through Blackwall's romance as well but these games are so damn long. I have already [mostly] done a completionist playthrough, but even totally skipping collections and non-main areas, IDK. The maps are fun to explore and they're huge. 45 hours for a main storyline PT? There doesn't appear to be a mod that offers story mode unless you auto-level your characters so you can cut a swath through everything. Maybe the fly mod will help.

[personal profile] aurenare reports that DeNa's last maintenance run just introduced a bug so that every single relic you pull with the Volume 2 Relic Draw is 5*s (a rainbow orb).

Some are boring — Shared Diamond Shield letting anyone cast Protect as a SB is of limited utility -- but others (Sentinel's Grimoire, Ramza's Shout relic, Terra's Maduin summoning relic and so on) are very nice.

No telling how long before they fix this bug, so I can't promise it's still in effect, but I just picked up a bunch of nice toys.

Signups are now closed and matching has been finalized. Congratulations everyone, because we almost doubled the number of participants this year from last year and no one needed to be contacted to add offers! A spreadsheet is in the process of being created, and it will be posted along with a beta post in the next few days.

If there are any issues with your assignment, please contact me at press.start.mod@gmail so that I can get onto them right away. If you would like to ask further details of your recipient, please also email me so that I can get the ball rolling on that. Please do not contact your recipient directly! This is my job and I am delighted to do it.

We also have some initial pinch hits. These are people who, after matching was complete, were unable to be matched either because no one offered what they were requesting or because by the time matching got around to them every possibility had already been assigned. Please look at the pinch hits carefully and see if you can create a work for one of these participants.

If you are interested in claiming a pinch hit, please comment below with your AO3 name and which pinch hit you are after. All comments are screened!

EDIT: We have a new pinch hit, number 6. Please look over it and see if you can claim it!

Pinch Hit #1: Postknight, Pokemon, The Sims, Mystic Messenger, Harvest Moon: Animal Parade, HuniePop - CLAIMED )

Pinch Hit #2: Akiba's Beat, Ar nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star, Atelier of Dusk Trilogy, Crossover Fandoms, Final Fantasy XIII series, Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki, Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, Star Stealing Prince, Tokyo Xanadu, Ys - CLAIMED )

Sign-up deadline approaches!

 The signup deadline approaches! A couple of things before signups close.

Requesting/Offering "Any Character"
If you are offering or requesting "Any Character", please check the tag set to make sure that you want a gift about any character/relationship in that tag set, or that you want to create a work for any character/relationship in that tag set. If there is any exception to you genuinely being fine with requesting or offering every tag in that fandom, now is a really good time to modify your signup to reflect that.  Also, please ensure that the characters/relationships you have prompted for are in the tag set.

Here is the tag set to make checking easier!

Optional Details in Offers

As already covered over here, the Optional Details field in Offers was left on by accident and I won't be using it for matching. Feel free to write stuff in there, but it will have no impact on what you are assigned to create (except under extraordinary circumstances).

Initially Unmatchables and Additional Offers

When signups close, I will be running matching. If no one is able to create for you you will be an initial pinch hit. If you are not able to create for anyone, you will be contacted and asked to provide additional fandoms or tags for matching purposes. You will have 24 hours to respond. Requests are visible, so as the signup deadline draws near just check to make sure you have some possibilities.

Contact with Participants

Please do not contact your fellow participants directly about their requests while the exchange is running. I will be the conduit for all contact of that nature.

Penalty Works
If you were defaulted by me at deadline either in 2015 or 2016 you are not eligible to participate this year until you complete your assignment from that year, and contact me with it. If you are not sure if you are one of these people, email me at press.start.mod@gmail and I'll let you know.

I think that covers everything! If there's anything else, drop it in the comments.

As with all my meta blog entries, I am writing for me me me and will only reference series I

It turns out that unpleasant feeling I get when I play Dishonored 2 is motion sickness. Messing with head bob and v-sync helps a bit but I haven't fully resolved the problem.

Short version: Great game, and so far it's been an improvement over the original in every way.

Long version, no spoilers )
