The Visible Dark is a full in-character RP-event. You'll need to solve all the dark secrets behind the number of mysterious murders and reveal some gruesome conspiracies within and between the Secret Societies. You'll need to use all you've got and more to get to the end of the bloody thread stretching from dark dungeons, candlelit halls of London, cold concrete of New York sewers and rainy streets of Seoul.

Instructions for players:

Intro

- Game is planned as hardcore-roleplay, without limitations. The only requirement is to stay in character, if possible.
- You can and sometimes must use any aspect of the game mechanics.
- Communication is the key for progressing through the plot. Speak with NPCs to solve puzzles, ask questions, talk to your teammates, discuss the next possible step in the event chat.
- NPCs are not dummies, each require specific approach. Diplomacy, force, threats and offers of help – all of this can play to your benefit… or spoil your relationship with NPC and force you look for detours in obtaining the needed information.
- Lots of info will be provided through “Say” chat, which is quite short-ranged. Try to stay close to each other and to key characters.
- A big number of locations will be involved, from starting to final ones, including battle zones. Don’t leave your shotgun in the closet, you will need one!
- It is strongly advised for players to gather in groups. Thus you won’t lose each other and can avoid friendly fire in specific zones.
- Don’t use Agartha conduit blindly – you will need to travel through locations often. Keep at least one working conduit in the group so that you can meetup on your buddy.
- Remember who investigates the case close to you. You will need allies.

For those new to the game mechanics:

MeetUp
It may happen, that during the game you will need to meet another character quickly – be it you game friend or NPC you met once. Meetup function will help you here.
You need to know following about MeetUp:
- You can meetup only with the person with known nickname;
- You can meetup only with characters who are added to your friend-list;
- You can meetup only with characters who are online;
- You character will not appear near the person you are meetup’ing with, but at the nearest anima well.
To meetup with the character, first you need to have him in your friend-list. If you already talked to him, find his nickname in chat, right click on the nickname and select command Make Friend. If not, open your friend-list (Shift+F by default), click “Add Friend” button on the bottom right corner and enter nickname in form.
Once character appeared in friend-list, right click on his name and select command Meet Up. After character will accept your request to meetup you will see loading screen of new location.

Useful chat commands

/chat join <chat name>
Joins the chat channel <chat name>. If you relog to the game, chat tabs stays open, but you need to re-join it to see new messages.

/reset
Forced switch to anima form (spirit world)

/me <text of your choice>
Send to chat description of action made by you character. Useful for roleplay. For example, command “/me sighs”, sent to chat by character Theresa “Run-girl” Blake, will appear as «Run-girl sighs»

/tell <nickname>, /t < nickname >, /w < nickname > ,/whisper < nickname >
Sends personal message to specific nickname. Useful when you need to ask something in secret. NB! Plot-wise personal messages to NPCs will be ignored, so you will not receive any hints this way. Any technical questions will be answered in the specific chat channel.

Trade
It is possible that you will need to trade goods and/or money with other character. To perform this, stand closer to required character, select him by mouse-clicking on him. Once his name will appear on the left side of the screen, right click on it and select Trade command. Open inventory and you will be able to drag items from there to trade window or enter the money amount in the specific field. Once you prepared the items to trade, press Confirm. Trade will proceed, once both parties approve it.

Joining the game
For participating in the event, you need to meetup on Theresa “Run-girl” Blake at the specific time. Event starts in the Albion Ballroom location, London. There won’t be a pre-defined coordinator, each stage of the quest will have a new one, so pay attention.

Sounds interesting, but I never really made it out of the starter town. :S
