Good evening everyone. I've been talking to a few people for advice about what to do in my spare time around here and getting a job of some sort came up a few times.

So I'd like to announce that if you have a need I will be offering my services as a delivery driver and courier in both the Near and Far Shores. I can ferry people as well, but not in large numbers. I'll be sure to keep prices reasonable considering our natures, but I will also ask for more for any more dangerous jobs.

If anyone knows of a good way to promote my services on the Near Shore side, please let me know.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me here or directly.

I finished deciphering the data I collected last month. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, my detailed findings can be found here.

The coordinates within the portal turned out to be a bit more complicated than I was expecting. I was only able to complete a partial scan at the time, but I've already identified well over 100 vastly different spacetime coordinates within the data. It's possible that my Dynamo suffered an undetected malfunction during the scan due to the disruptions in spacetime, but it would be incredibly unlikely to see such clear and varied results due to an error. The more likely explanation is that the portal leads to a space connected to multiple dimensions at once, causing my Dynamo to pick up on numerous coordinates simultaneously.

Unfortunately, this means it's difficult to determine what coordinates belong to the "hub" dimension, let alone where any of the other coordinates go. Dimensional travel of this scale is also beyond what I'm used to. I'm working on adapting my technology to be able to visit or remotely scan these dimensions more efficiently, but using my current methods it would still take a miracle to find any of the places or people I'm looking for, not to mention an absurd amount of energy for even a single trip.

So what I'd like to know is, who here is familiar with interdimensional travel and open to the possibility of collaborating?

More specifically, I'm looking for anyone who has experience with initiating travel or observation between separate dimensions and/or setting the coordinates. Technological methods are preferred, but I'm willing to try and work with magic if I have to. That includes any gods whose domain might include something like this, even in an abstract sense. I'll take whatever I can get, provided it's of use to me.

How would you define the word monster?

[A few recent conversations have gotten her thinking about certain things and she's genuinely curious about the answers she might get. Cardia is well aware that there are a few people who do know her secret and could probably guess that this is from her. But she's not brave enough to ask something like this without anonymity to hide behind.]

Here’s a question for you all: what do you think about death?

Considering the recent murders, I’d say it’s something to think about, isn’t it?

It truly brings in the question of whether or not death plays a relevant role here. People seem to be able to come back to life, but seems to go from god to shinki or even shinki to god. Regardless of the reason for the change in reversal, it seems that one element in particular remains missing: memories.

I’m curious as to why memories seem to be the important element in deciding between a god and a shinki aside from the obvious.

So, here’s another question: how many of you were previously shinki who became a god? If you don’t remember your time as a shinki, would you want those memories back?

Hey! Um... so I've been thinking about this for a couple of days, but I heard....

[He trails off before regrouping. He should've rehearsed this before he started recording it, but he's got no idea how to go back and delete and re-record now. Onward!]

I heard I used to be a god! I mean, I don't remember, obviously, but if I really was, I guess I should say I'm sorry. And I look forward to meeting you all again. And, um.

[Really should have rehearsed.]

I don't owe anybody money, right?

[He laughs uncomfortably and rushes ahead.]

-- Anyway I guess that's about it! Nice to meet you all again! Sorry I forgot!

[Nailed it. Before he can think better of this whole idea, he hastily stops the recording and hits send.]

It's Zeno's first time posting to the BBS! Because Zeno's been called out! It looks like it happened here in this post but let Zeno know if it happens anywhere else, all right?

Such as this one right here.

On the one hand, it's good to leave a note like this where it's easy to see, since Zeno forgets sometimes that you can use your voice on these phones. On the other, Zeno has no guarantee it's the same person who picks up the response! It might be more than one, even a whole group. Considering that first question about gods dying, Zeno actually begins to doubt if this was a person at all. Having met fish ayakashi before, has an ayakashi ever been known to possess a BBS? Zeno wonders, since going to meet this person did end with something failing to attack Zeno.

[He's actually quite certain this individual is an individual, probably a god or shinki of some description, but throws a little smoke in the air anyway. It might make the person underestimate him a little bit more, if they think he's completely wrong.]

Whatever the case, please be careful when you're talking to strangers who have something to hide! Of course we all hide things, and some of us are really good at it or really need to do it for a good reason, but if it looks like a duck and it quacks like a duck and it goes against your better judgment, maybe stay away from the redwood forest.


      Also, also! Congratulations to any new couples from Tanabata!

So she takes a breath, sighs, and tries again.
] Has anyone seen Hakkai? His phone's disconnected. And... I can't feel him anymore... But I thought, maybe, he'd just gone to another god, or... [She makes a helpless gesture and shrugs, shaking her head. 'I don't know,' she seems to be saying.]

If not then I'm afraid he's probably-- Gone. Entirely. [And damn if that doesn't absolutely gut her to say. She's always been good at masking her emotions, but she closes her eyes here and takes a breath, giving herself away entirely to just how badly it effects her.]

Hello. This is Midoriya Izuku for those of you who don't know me well. I've been talking with a few people, and it seems that while newly minted gods often get somebody to guide them through their arrival, shinki aren't so lucky.

I think it would be good if we could compile a resource for newly arrived shinki. There's no reason they need to be so confused upon their arrival.

As I'm not a shinki, I don't know everything that should go into it. Could those who are please say what they would have liked to know earlier?

Thank you for your time.

When mortals die, they go to heaven. If you believe their religions, they also go to hell, or they are reincarnated.

What do you believe happens to gods and shinki when they die?

[The video is at a weird tilt as Owain seems to be having difficulty getting the phone to balance. When it's at least steady he backs up a bit to get fully into view.

Then he poses, hand partially obscuring his face, dressed in the armor he came to this world in.]

Good day to all the gods and weapons to thy gods! I am Owain, the hero beyond life and death, and I am in search for some aid.

As you can see, I come from battle. My sword, though, remains sheathed and my talents untested since I arrived. My hand quakes with unreleased desire to see what all I can do.

[Dramatically, that hand does shake on cue.]

I am also... lacking in skills that seem common to this land. My revelations have not helped me this far.

So I entreat any of you willing to test your selves or give aid. I wish to spar and test the skills that are my birthright, and will meet any who wish to do the same. I also wish for your assistance in teaching me the skills needed to operate these phones we were given, and possibly other things from the shores far and near.

My past may be a mystery, but my future is destined for conquest over our enemies.

Posted: July 6

[ The video starts scrolling to show a floor filled with multicolored plush toys - most of which might be familiar from the recent festival. There’s easily several dozen filling the frame before the feed swings up to catch the pair of people addressing the BBS today.

Yata, the one clearly holding the phone, looks a little sheepish about it, but isn’t letting that stop them. Fushimi, meanwhile, just looks...grumpy. ]

So, uh. We might need some help. We sorta…. overdid it at the festival and ended up with… a lot more prizes than we know what to do with. ….Help?

You overdid it. You wouldn’t admit defeat.

[ Cue a twitch from the shorter boy at his side. ] That’s because I wasn’t defeated!

You were. Several times, but you just had to keep going “five out eight” or whatever.

[ Fushimi was honestly not much better. He’s just not going to say that. ]

Argh! Whatever! Just. Look! If anyone wants some of these, we have too many, so come take them off our hands, alright?

[ Fushimi swipes the camera for a second. ]

Five hundred yen for one.

[ He smirks the tiniest bit.

He is one hundred percent trying to get a reaction out of the redhead. He’s discovered it’s easy and entertaining!

It works. ] What?! [ Yata punches him in the arm before stealing the camera back and looking more than a little exasperated. ] Ignore him. They’re free. I’ve got them at my god’s temple for the time being if anyone wants to swing by and grab some. Or knows anything else we could do with them.

First person to suggest “burn them” gets burned themselves. These things reek when you set them on fire.

[ He’s not sure how he knows that, but he does. And before the rest of the Heavens start questioning what else could follow that rather dubious statement, Yata flicks the video feed off to end the transmission. ]

Shinki and gods: I, the Valkyrie, open the temple of Osiris to those of you who wish to train in combat.

Battle against the ayakashi is a service gods and shinki alone can offer the mortal world. Though mortals voice prayers for all manner of things, they have the strength within them to improve their own lot -- to vanquish their personal demons, to overcome their obstacles, to deal with their fellow man. Divine aid in these cases is a boon, not a necessity. Not so with the ayakashi, who as we know can only be truly defeated when god and shinki align their strengths.

Therefore your duty must be to defeat these enemies. As most of you gained your position here through arbitrary assignation, many of you lack the ability to fight, and thus your ability to perform that task. I shall rectify that, should you wish to fulfill your duty.

-The Valkyrie

It's been a while since I last posted the timeline of events. We've had a lot of new people showing up. Some might be curious about when we started arriving and everything that's happened afterward.

These are my notes, but I haven't been here since the beginning. If there's anything you'd like to add or question, please feel free.

[The camera shows a view of what appears to be one of the old, abandoned shrines that litter certain areas of the Far Shore. The post comes in the evening, as shown by the golden, slanting quality of the light filtering in through the trees.]

[The Medicine Seller is sitting on the roots of an old tree near an abandoned torii gate, with his legs politely crossed and his hands folded in his lap. His expression betrays nothing at all -- there's no hint of his usual small, secretive smile, but there's no fear, either, or sadness, or anger. There's just... nothing.]

I am afraid it would seem... that Hyacinthus, known to some as "Donut", no longer walks among us.

[One slim hand rises to brush against his sternum through the layers of clothes that he wears, against the spot where his name was before.]

And I am without a name.

[Which does put him in a position he hasn't been in before, until this point:]

[He has a choice, perhaps.]

I wish, if possible, to serve a god who hunts often for Ayakashi. If any such god should wish to name me before the Heavens choose on my behalf... the matter can be discussed.

[He bows politely to the camera, before the feed cuts out.]

This message penned on the 17th of June and intended for all inhabitants of The Far Shore.

I write to you with an uncertain heart. No doubt in distant lands like Piltover or Zaun, such devices as these are commonplace. On the slopes of Mt. Targon, life is much more austere. As such, I find this "smartphone" to be strange and wondrous, if not a touch unnerving.

If I have read these instructions correctly, this missive should be sent immediately to all other residents of the Heavens. If this is so, I suspect this to be an excellent way to learn something about my fellow deities or shinki. When I was a young girl, I had a pen pal in Demacia. I suppose this is something slightly similar to that. If we are to do this job at all, we should do it together, which starts with getting to know each other. Who are you? Where did you come from? What do you think about our very strange situation?

I look forwards to your response, and will of course answer any questions you might have as well.

Leona, God of the Sun

PS: Is there any way I can write these with a pen like a normal person? This "keyboard" is ridiculous.

My thanks to everyone who helped clean and repair the abandoned temple! I'm pleased to report that it seems to be monster free and perfectly safe. There are also new windows.

I'll be resuming tutoring there on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons starting next week. So far the subjects I'm teaching are primarily math and Japanese. Please let me know if you will be attending or if there are any other subjects you'd like to learn. Household budgeting and cooking, for example.

There's no charge for my instruction, but donations of books, furniture and classroom equipment are always welcome. Please consider this building a community space, and feel free to use it if you wish to hold any classes or meetings of your own. Add them to our schedule, clean up after yourselves and don't break anything. (⋆^-^⋆)ノ
