IT'S SIMPLE ... IT'S HALLOWEEN!
Hehe, well y'all would have figured by looking at the date anyway. So, since we do like throwing news schemes at you for whatever reason we can find, this week I'm happy to give you this one. Our very talented and awesome and Halloween-loving Pumpkin King (Aod) really pumpkined pimped it up and created the awesome scheme you see.

Big shouts to him, and a Happy Halloween to y'all!



PS: Also, don't forget to check out the latest avatar update.

THE WITCHES ARE IN TOWN! THE WITCHES OF ...!
Eastwick. We are aware that some of you may have already checked out the new show about three, well, whaddayaknow, witches originating from the rather well known town Eastwick. Once a movie (it had Cher, remember?) now we have a TV show, which has been building a fanbase quickly with its very humourous, laid-back and yet emotional story telling.

So our dear old Ares has taken upon himself to once more STUN us with his amazing gift. He's created this scheme for us and man, may I say with its rich reds and the highlight beiges this one's a winner. I hope you enjoy it as much as us.

Btw, remember to watch tonight

NOVEMBER SPECIAL
Forgive the uninspired name but I am a bit on the tired side today, so this will have to do So what that special is you ask? Well for starters, we are throwing the second MS Donation Rally at you Since vBulletin has changed their entire billing system we're now in the situation where we have to raise money in order to afford that new license. Anyway, of course we got stuff in return for you. So head over to the thread detailing how the Rally's gonna be run and become a Rally Contributor today
Please note that the update after a donation is not instantaneous. Give us at least a day (or maybe even two).

But of course that's not all ... because that would be quite a bit ... unexciting. No, the other thing we're giving you today is a new RPG feature on Midnight-Shadow. Sticking with our time-theme (which I am sure you've notice ) this one's called The Clock's Handles. TCH is supposed to allow us to test ideas of yours. RPGs are set up for an undetermined amount of time and we're gonna wait and see if it takes off. Should it indeed be a success, the prize is all-inclusive hosting of the RPG here on Midnight-Shadows. Aaaaaaand on the other hand, we're giving our players a broader array of things to do, characters to make and worlds to play in.

Please direct any questions to the mods or the Game Managers over in the TCH forum .

Anyway, happy November (and much finger crossing for those of you who do NaNoWriMo this year) and we hope you'll enjoy

And yes, this November's special too.

TOMORROW IS A .... NEW MOON
Tomorrow New Moon hits cinema's and with it a new chapter in the Twilight Saga shall be ushered in by the cacophony of a thousand screaming voices (young and old alike, I guarantee you!) As an extra special treat, we've decided to bring you a shiny new scheme to enjoy!

The lovely Imzadi was kind enough to give me a hand in creating the colours for this scheme and we can only hope that you love it as much as you love the series. (Be you on Team Edward, Team Jacob or Team Switzerland).


Go team Charlie!

AND ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST JOINS THE TEAM
Excuse the morbid little joke there. Anyway, you probably noticed already but I figured I'd throw out an announcement anyway. Let's all give it up for Amy (Sancta Terra) who's the latest one to join the MS staff.

Welcome on board, Amy, and we're all looking forward to working with you.

He'll eat your brain!!!! No wait, it's actually just Zachary Quinto
So January is now officially over, and with that I think we all noticed that 2010 has started (and is running). So that means the holidays scheme needs to make room for one of the other pretties we have laying around. And this time, the one picked which we'd like to present to you is - as you might have noticed - the Zachary Quinto scheme.

It is black, white and red. Yes, I made it and tried to keep stark contrasts in this one. It was definitely inspired by Zachary's role as Sylar . Anyway, I hope you enjoy it!

Thank goodness, we made it Just in Time
Well, concerning the movie's original release date we actually really did not but that doesn't matter now, does it? I'd like to introduce our latest scheme to you anyway, which features the stunning header made by our very own Aurora (Corni). It's dark blues with beige highlights all around with a very traditional feel to it colour-wise. Colours and set-up were done by yours truly

Anyway, we hope you enjoy this one and stick around for all those others pretty things we have up our sleeves

Mixing things up a little
You might have or might not have noticed a change in the Nightly Diversion category (aka. Chapter 3). Since we call ourselves an RPG board, we might as well cater to that even in the off-topic section. Please take note that all the three media / offtopic forums are now one: The Reliquary. There you can no discuss anything topic-wise ranging from real life matters, serious thoughts etc. right through to books, movies, music and all that.

The Moonlight is our RPG discussion where we hope to see vivid discussion on all things RPing ensuing. Discuss ideas (possibly for TCH) or things you saw done / see done, bring up thoughts or ask opinion of your fellow players.

The forum called Moving Shadows is dedicated to anything concerning being creative. Yes, this can be anything really not just writing / Rping. You have an idea and would love some input? Well, you no longer need to go looking for other places to get that input. Throw it into a thread and turn to your fellow members.

The games forums stays as it was

Hope you enjoy

ETA: Log out and look at the forum index as a guest for a nother new little thing added today

RATING
  • We have given Midnight-Shadows the rating of PG-14.
  • The rating is similar to the PG-13 one with minor edits as specified below:

    Parents Strongly Cautioned - Some material may be inappropriate for children under the age of 14. This rating may contain sexual content, brief or partial nudity, some strong language and innuendo, humour, mature themes, political themes, terror and/or intense action violence. However, bloodshed is rarely present. There may be mild drug content present (for example smoking of marijuana). The rating allows for more profanity than PG and slightly more than PG-13. Simply consider, that words that are automatically filtered when posting pose the limit. Circumventing the board's filter in any way is frowned upon and will lead to consequences. The rating allows for "intense violence" in the way where blood is present in a violent way. Heavy torturing scenes, maiming or killing (what's referred to as bloodshed) does not fall within this rating.

    Please note that once we enter the area of "graphic" descriptions (esp. in sexual themes) you're automatically considered to cross the line this rating draws.

  • This rating applies to any content posted on this board (whether you're the creator or just copying / linking it from other sites), including roleplaying posts.
  • If ever in doubt on whether something you did / do / want to do in post form is suitable for the board rating then please contact one of our staff members.
