May 10th - discord

PSA: If you haven’t joined the group discord already, I strongly recommend that you do! Even if you don’t like talking in group chats, it’s a great way to get the latest announcements quickly, find people to roleplay with, participate in other activities, and share your works!

If you want to join, just send a note to the group.



April 22nd - rp mixer

As discussed, mixer sign-ups are now available! Simply fill out the google form here (responses are confidential):

You will be matched with someone next weekend ( after April 28th, 9PM EST ) and provided with a prompt list (which is optional if you have other ideas). I will try to avoid pairing people I already know are friends!

As for the 'Who do you NOT want to interact with?' question...I ( arcanium ) am the only one reading the responses, and I am not signing up, so please fill that out if needbe so that you are matched with someone you are comfortable with!



April 5th - forums

In case you didn't know, we have a forum!

Recently, I've cleaned it up. To celebrate and dust it off a bit, the forum bonus returns. Every roleplay you do using the forum will gain an extra +100 G. The gold rates have been updated to show this as well.
As a reminder, if you sign up, note the group (or IM me in discord) so I can accept your registration. Enjoy!



March 31st, 2018 - gold v2

After some debate following the initial release, I have renamed the categories back to what is more familiar and changed the backgrounds to a very general range. Hopefully that resolves any confusion! The examples have also been updated to reflect this.

Thanks!



March 31st, 2018 - collabs

The good news: I updated the gold journal, and pretty much everything is worth more gold now!

The bad news: I have axed the rule that allows collaborators to collect the same amount of gold on art submissions. From now on, all collabs must divide the total amount of gold earned by the number of collaborators.

The good news on top of the bad news: Collabs will still collect FP normally. You are now also allowed to collab (for FP) by each working on (related) drawings separately, then compiling them together.

Why?
Over the years I've heard many complaints about collabs not being finished, stress over people getting their parts done (in a timely manner), issues with the finished work, and more. Initially it was implemented to be a nice little thing where you could work together with someone and reap the benefits. However, it seems there are too many people fixated on doing collabs and being unhappy with the workload and results.

Because of this, I don't want to make collabs feel like 'the way to go' when it comes to art submissions. You can still collaborate, and it's still good for FP. However, the gold benefit will no longer be present. Thank you for understanding!



March 11th, 2018 - season confusion

This was kind of an off enrollment, so here's clarification.

Fall is NOT over. New members joined IC on the 15th of Fall. The next festival is on the 19th.
The calendar has been updated with new character birthdays. If you just joined the group and your character's birthday is on the 15th or later, you can do the birthday quest.



March 7th, 2018 - gold system

If you are waiting for an app review, rest assured, it is coming! I am trying to be detailed so it takes a while for me to write. Please refrain from sending notes/additional comments.

To current members, as you might have noticed, the gold journal is marked as outdated. I am planning to rebalance the gold system. It would be to your advantage to wait before submitting drawings for gold until the update is released (you are free to submit to the gallery, but I'd advise you to stall adding it on the site).



March 3rd, 2018 - welcome new guests!

Thank you for your patience! Enrollments have officially ended. There is no formal list, check your join requests for your results.

Those who have not stashed their applications will find that they have already been added to the site. For the ones who did stash their apps, I will add you to the site once you submit the app to the gallery.

Thank you to all those who took time to make a character for the group! It was all a very interesting read, and you've all got lovely characters! Unfortunately we are trying to cut down on the group size (to make things more manageable) so we simply cannot accept everyone (would love to though)! Best wishes to all of you!

Rejections and conditional acceptances have been handled so here are the details for the new members! Welcome! There are a few things you should do:
  • If you have twitter, follow the EE twitter ( @ EclairExpress ). Most updates will be posted there first.
  • If you have discord (highly recommended), note the group to be invited to the chatroom!
  • Join the forum (if you plan to use it). Send a note after doing so for your registration to be accepted!
  • Submit your character to the gallery (Toffee Town Villagers folder) so everyone can meet you!
  • Read this journal about all the EE internal systems (housing, submissions, items, FP, etc.)
  • I will hopefully put up the next event tomorrow (or early next week) but until then, the dream event is running!
We hope you will have fun here in the group (with the rest of us).
\(^ o ^)/ Welcome to Toffee Town!

Basically I'm just trying to see who's still alive in the group and interested LOL anyone who has submitted anything from the start of the creative market will be good automatically. I can't remember if you have but if you've drawn anything since then just submitting it to the site will be sufficient to pass the check o:

whenever I actually put the journal up it'll have a list of names for those deemed "inactive", and they'll have some time to get off that list (by submitting something)!

The site looks so amazing you've worked so hard all these years for the group :iconamgtouchplz: looking forward to what's coming 8DD 

and while im here.., i have a question~ I plan to make my npc coming to the town in early Summer (i think it's summer when i bought the ticket.. even though i haven't made the app till now xD;; ) but since it will be Fall when the group re-open, so i assume i have to move my npc out from the inn? is there any way that an npc can stay in an inn/seasonal house after the free one season stay? Like maybe they have to pay for rent like rent per day or rent per season? It's kinda the character's personalities that she wants to experience the 'boarding school' environment because she's 12-13, so it makes me wonder xD

Thank you ! ^o^ I hope you'll enjoy!!
and to answer your question, which makes me realize I forgot to update that I revoked that rule, but basically we no longer have a "salary" which basically means you can stay at the inn/seasonal house for free.. I don't foresee a space issue at the moment from how things look, so your npc can stay there if they'd prefer!

I have a question, do you have to apply for an assistant or can you make like, your own job?
Reply
:iconarcanium:
arcanium Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You can make your own job (in a sense, please read up on independents from our journals) which are roadside merchants. Otherwise you must be employed at a town shop.

I was just wondering if it would be possible to get clarification on what the production assistant job entails in Toffee Town?
eg: would the PAs be the ones running around filming the townspeople?
(normally a PA just runs around getting supplies and doing tasks for the producer and actors so I wasn't sure if that's what was intended here, or if they would be the actual ones filming and organizing scenes)

Show hosts, filming scenes, actors at times, etc. Small town so they gotta do it all!

I had a quick question about independents! I tried to read over everything the town offers and what current independents there are. Could you tell me if any of the following might be acceptable as an independent application? (Sorry I listed a lot, figured I'd ask for multiple in case most wouldn't work)

- Falconer (wasn't sure if Pet Shop offered birds)
- Astronomer (+ dabbles in astrology so offers comments on whether its a lucky day or not etc)
- Glass Blower (provides all sorts of glass baubles) 
- Potter (makes pots)
- Teacher (provides educational classes!)
- Candle Maker
- Matchmaker (offers match making services!)
- Night Watchman (doesn't really offer a ware, but wanders the town and surrounding area at night and protects everyone)

Thanks~
:D

-Falconer -> They only sell falcons? It's not really in demand, and yeah, pet shop does sell birds (just no one has bothered to draw one yet).
-Astronomer -> Sounds a lot like fortune teller, it's acceptable as an NPC job though. I might say maybe if they sell related goods (telescopes, star charts, etc).
-Glass Blower -> ...maybe??? Is it something they can just do in a typical house though? Demand is debatable.
-Potter -> Also maybe... Demand is debatable.
-Teacher -> There is just one child in the village right now. So that won't work.
-Candle Maker -> Seems a little specific, I'll say maybe. Demand is debatable.
-Night Watchman -> As I've said, they have to offer wares. There is really no need for protection in the village also, we've gone a whole year with no mishaps LOL.

Yep, just one. If you are chosen for your alt job, you will need to edit your character to fit the alternate job.
