This is the OOC topic for Awakening. This thread contains the rules of the RP, a quick reference sheet for all the characters, and conversations about what's going on.
Obviously, the RP runs on the usual Adrift rules, but here are a few other things...
This RP has a lot of mystery and exploration elements, so be sure to look around and investigate things, and pay attention to your environment, as you'll be moving through different areas. Interact with objects of interest in your environments; they're probably important to the story.
I'm leaving things more open, but when it comes to combat, general Adrift rules apply. In combat, take only one action at a time. Always assume an enemy (or enemies) aren't cannon fodder unless I state otherwise. If you're allowed to instantly kill something in your post, I'll say so in the DM post. Otherwise, always assume you cannot.
If you receive a PM about this campaign, chances are it'll be in-character (I'll state otherwise if it isn't). I'll be PMing people information that only they are privy to, and it's their choice whether or not to share it with their fellow players (and how they choose to share it). I may also have some interactions via PMs, so that players are not privy to those private interactions, either (if this happens, I'll specify this too, and if the conversation gets interrupted in-game the PM chain gets interrupted, too).
For these private convos, I'll mostly only do it for important things, so it's not always going to happen. If you want to keep something in-character secretive and drag one of my NPCs off to some private place, feel free to do so and then you can begin the PM chain. However, in-character PMing between players isn't permitted unless I'm also in the PM conversation (as DM, I have to know everything to give everyone the best experience).
Again, this shouldn't be used often, as all players should be included when at all possible.
There will be no group penalties for people not posting, but your individual character may be punished if you suddenly stop posting without warning. All I'm asking is a quick message on Skype or Battle.net or something and/or just a PM, to let me know you won't be posting anymore and/or for a certain period of time. If you get behind and want to catch up, just PM me and I can get you up to speed so you can get back in the game. But please let me know if you aren't going to be posting, for whatever reason. I won't be offended (unless maybe you're rude enough to not give me some kind of heads-up that you aren't going to post anymore ).

Reference sheets for the NPC companions are hidden to provide less specificity about certain aspects. Otherwise, all NPC companions for this campaign can be found in this topic. This includes physical descriptions.

NOTE: For the start of the RP, bear in mind that Adrift works based on the Zone system, rather than one big RP megathread. Therefore, if you're in Victory/Yavakaro, be sure to go to the topic "ZONE - The Odyssey," and if you're part of Grimm's Army, go to the topic "ZONE - Devil Dog." Not all players are currently in the same zone, though you will be after introductions.
