[The sound of a thoughtful yet understated tone is barely audible as Joshua seemingly decides Hell to it- he needs some form of explanation regarding this Wizard of Oz-esque kidnap.]

Hmm, very suspicious. ...Obviously this isn't the work of that attention seeker and his lv. iflare. Still. This could be fun.. and there is still a week left before the ends have to be appropriately tied. Seems something or someone however is sure showing me a good time.

[Joshua's voice changes almost instantly, bright and strangely cheerful; yet still with an edge to it -- though his tones of politeness certainly cover that little trait right up. The more attentive will notice his underlying frustration, but generally? Unless you analyse speech as it's happening, there is no chance to have a clue. None~!]

Hello there, world.
Say, these charming-looking white things milling and bending around in synchronised seizure patterns. Kind of a shame that they disappear so quickly, hmm?

Do they have a name?

Want to meet new people? Looking for that much needed excitement in your life? Looking for a CHALLENGE? Well then consider this your personal invitation to the first Official Genie Golf Classic, the only event in Paixao where you can test your skill against citizen and visitors alike and see who ultimately reigns supreme.

Paixao's unique landscape offers its avid golfers the ultimate in golf experiences with this new contest where contestants will play their way throughout the city to sink a total of ten carefully placed holes. This will also give contestants the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the city as they play through some well and not so well known locations.

The Genie Golf Classic is open to all public as a fun and non-profitable event. It should also be noted that this is a exemplary event which is available to all 'villains' within the city as well. Because of this the game will be carefully monitor to ensure the safety and well being of all contestants while those participating will be expected to be on their best behaviour. Anyone caught threatening the welfare of others will be immediately eliminated from the match and face a harsh penalty by me personally. I mean it.

The winner of the Genie Golf Classic contest will not only be crowned the Golf Champion of Paixao but also be awarded a top secret super awesome prize.

Further information will be provided in the weeks to come as well as full registration.
Anyone interested in participating in this event should sign up now by simply replying to this post to give us a good idea of the headcount.

Questions or concerns that arise may also be asked at this time.

Attention dear citizens and visitors of Paixao,

Such a pity the mayor met a rather untimely end. But, well, all things must come to an end, mustn't they?

However, where there are ends, there are also beginnings.

There is a new order here in this city.

I, Maleficent, Mistress of all Evil, lay claim to this city. My will is now law.

Any who dare to oppose shall be dealt with swiftly and with no mercy, but let us hope it should not come to that, shall we?

I was wondering if anyone has noticed any strange or suspicious buildings within the city? Ones that none of you have ever seen the inside of, and don't know what it contains. I am looking for something, and the most likely place for it to be is somewhere that no one has been inside of or ever even thought about trying to get inside of.

Question: What has four legs, is twenty stories tall, and shoots lightening from its eyes?

Answer: I don't know, but it sure ain't happy.

A bunch of us went up against that monster, and so far the monster's winning. We need more people and we need a plan. Who's in?

I realize there have been many posts on the journals and otherwise as of late...asking about where their friends and family could be. Seeing as some of these can be buried under other journal entries, it would keep all of Paixao more organized if there could be one master entry for all missing persons.

I have taken it upon myself to aid people looking for their friends and family here. If you'd like, you may post here with a description and/or pictures of your loved ones that you're looking for. (I can make do with either.) If they arrive here and I spot them, or someone else sees them, I'll inform you of their arrival. Your name would be helpful so I may contact you quickly.

I'll do this for free, if there are no objections.

There will be a list kept here, updated daily to make sure that everything is kept under control. If possible, I may update it even more frequently. If anyone sees these people, please tell me so I may strike their name from the list and inform those looking for them.

List [as of 8/18/08] )

[ooc: yeah, you can link to previous journals or posts if your character doesn't feel like rattling off descriptions to L. the man's keeping himself occupied by helping the public. do as you please, paixao!]

So, I'm hoping you all might be able to help me out. I'm looking for something, however it isn't a person, as some of you might be rather used to seeing on here. What I'm after is a bit different, you see.

I'm searching for knowledge. Information as it were.

I want you all to tell me everything. Everything and anything you've noticed about Paixao. Now, I don't mean the information the welcoming committee always relays, I've heard most of that now, although I suppose it wouldn't hurt to have a bit of a repeat, but that's not really the point of this. What I'm really after is anything that seemed strange, or just a bit out of the ordinary. Even the most insignificant detail that you thought was odd, but just shrugged it off as being a figment of your imagination or nothing important. Because, you see, it could be important! Any little speck of a clue could mean something!

Now, I know what you're all thinking. Why do I want this information, right?

Because, I don't know about the rest of you, but I don't particularly like being stuck in one place for too long. I have places to be, things to do and all that! There's quite the mystery about this place and I intend to solve it, so I can be on my way. Come on then, I know what you're thinking now. How does this lone man intend to figure out what's going on? Why does he think he can figure out what no one else has yet? That's what you're thinking, isn't it? Well, that's easy: It's because if there's anyone who can solve this, I can.

So, allons-- Oh! Wait! Almost forgot... I didn't introduce myself. Sorry about that. Bit rude of me. Got a bad habit of doing that. My name's the Doctor.

There now. All introduced proper like. Now then! As I was saying...

Allons-y! Comment away! Tell me what you know!

PAIXAO-- Citizens and esteemed guests of Paixao, it is with great sorrow that we inform you of the untimely passing of Oturo Heirwidthal, celebrated Mayor of Paixao. Rest assured that the police force has closed off the office and we are looking into the cause of his death at this time. Any details that we gather on the situation will be forwarded to you as soon as we are able to give you the information.

Fifth Mayor of Paixao since the city's founding, Oturo Heirwidthal, 52, performed great services for Paixao during his ten years in office, bringing innovation and protection to this city when other Mayors failed. Mayor Heirwidthal was the first to bring new technology to Paixao, setting up the journal program for citizens and guests alike to utilize as an unparalleled resource in the city. His funding for the research of inter-dimensional travel has sparked hope among the people of the city, especially for our guests who find themselves stranded here.

The past ten years have been delightful ones with Mayor Heirwidthal to guide us, and he will be greatly missed.

I know I must not be the only one around here who's bored~ I'll tell you all a little story, and maybe you'll forget about your boredom for just a little while. ♥

Once upon a time, long ago and far away, there lived a witch. This little witch fell in love, as many humans do. However, this witch fell in love with a demon--a king, in fact. This witch believed that everyone had love, even demons. So the demon king and the witch were married, and they loved each other very much. For a time, they were happy.

And then they had a son. ♥

Now, the witch wanted her son to grow up to be loving and good, so she always scolded him when he acted badly. And one day he got very sick. So sick that he was going to die! The boy's parents were worried, and nobody could find a cure for him. The witch knew how, though, and even though the demon king tried to stop her, the witch loved her son so much she was willing to go through with it anyway: sacrificing her life for his.

So the witch died, and the boy was saved by her love.

But then demon boy decided that love was why his mother had died, and so he stopped believing in love.

Poor Laharl, so convinced his mother died because of love that he rejected it entirely. It makes what she did entirely pointless, doesn't it? ♥

Greetings.   As this seems to be the place for it, I would like to know if anyone has seen my fellow generals--I suppose you could call them my siblings.  Should either one be found or have been seen, I would appreciate it if I were informed.

Leviathan  wears blue armor and has blue eyes.  I have not seen many reploids in this place, so I will assume that she, as well as Fefnir will stand out in a crowd.

Fefnir... will likely be more easy to spot.  He wears red armor, has red eyes, and is... rather vocal.

Also, should you encounter a malfunctioning or openly hostile robot, I would like to be informed as well.  I am under orders to eradicate any such Irregular, and I see no reason to deny protection to others simply because I am not in Neo Arcadia.

Thank you for your time.

I was just flying with Master Balthier, and he disappeared right off of my back! I know he didn't fall off, or I would have seen or felt it.... He's got short blond hair, and very fancy clothes, and he wears colorful rings. If anybody sees him, please let me know!

Now that he's not around, I don't know what to do. Does anybody need a ride? I can always fly people places while I look--I'm really fast!

Attention, citizens and guests of Paixao:

Despite the recent string of unfortunate events, please let me assure you that Paixao is a peaceful place. Our citizens are making every accomodation possible for you, our guests. Apartments are being emptied, and soon you will be allowed to apply for them. We are making further expansions to our schools so that all of those eligible can attend.

Paixao is a land of tradition, however. It is hard to believe that we are almost upon our centennial year. Our founders did not expect much when they set foot on this island, expecting only to live in isolationist peace. But we have had our highs and lows, our periods of economic growth and bustling trade, and it is due to all this that Paixao is what it is today, and can accomplish all these things. We must never forget that.

Therefore, it is my pleasure as mayor to invite you to our 95th Annual Foundation Day Festival. Admission, food, games and entertainment are complimentary, and catering will be generously provided by the Ersesat Company. However, because of this, I must ask everyone who plans to be there to RSVP in this post, so that our caterers will know how much food to prepare.

Though most of the fair is free of charge to everyone, this year we will also be holding a paid raffle, to help raise funding for our research into offworld transportation. The winner will receive his or her choice of prizes, the nature of which will be given in more detail at the event itself.

The festivities begin at the Jogo da Crianca Fairgrounds in three days' time, and I am also planning to attend. I hope to see all of you there.

Thank you,

The Mayor of Paixao

Attention Citizens! This is your- ...is this thing on? Eh, testing! Teeeeeeesting! ... Oh, it is. Ah heh, heh, heh...

As I was saying. This is your one and only, absolutely sensational, greatly praised and adored moderator: ME! It's been awhile since I've, ha ha, blessed you all with my presence. Unlike that other Mook, the so called 'Mayor', I've been keeping collecting information on the current cases of missing citizens and other events while he was probably off on a vacation.

You know... I could really go for one of those 'bout now. Spend a day out in the sun, just soakin' it in... This stuff is way tougher then I thought it'd be. -EH! Not that I'm havin' any regrets or anythin'! I'm on top of things, totally know what I'm doin'. I don't need no vacation to stay my best!

*ahem* SO! Let's get back to business, shall we? We still have many missing and kidnapped citizens. You should be keeping an eye out for any of the listed and report any information you might have on the kidnappings or missing cases to me personally.

It's official that the organization is behind these kidnappings. Also be on the watch for them. Do not trust them. Do not speak with them. It's for your own safety. These are the same 'people' who have our eight kidnapped victims locked away and are hurting them. They are best identified for their black coats. Any further information on them will be accepted.

Remember: Be on the look out for suspicious activity. Don't travel alone and spread the word of these disappearances to keep everyone informed.

Attention all Paixins... Paixaonies, Paxories? Oy, what were they callin' them again? ...Paixaoans! -yeah, that's the one. *ahem* This is your newly elected moderator speaking; the one and only me! And it is with high spirits I boldly accept my new duty of taking care of all you little people out there. Unlike that lousy, good for nothin' mayor, I will be answering your questions and dealing with both new and old visitors to the island.

Now then, as your royal person, leader, CEO, and... Eh, basic, good old fashion moderator I have but a few simple demands:

First, I would like peace and harmony amongst all the Paixaoans of the island. -yeah, that's good. And second, I'd like a million dollars. Or pearls... Or clams, something expensive.

Actually! Why don't you give me the million clams first, and we'll do peace and harmony amongst all the Paixaoans second? That works well.

-Oh! Yeah, and third, I want a full body fur brushing every morning with a nice, stiff bristled bush.

...you know, now that I think of it, why don't you give me the clams and the fur brushing first and second 'cause their easy ones and third we'll do the peace and harmony amongst the paixaoans stuff.

The Mayor of Paixao speaking.

Firstly, I would like to welcome all of those who have been in Paixao. The greeting is probably late for many of you but... I hope that you are somewhat enjoying your stay here.

My secretary has informed me that several of you have filed complaints regarding Paixao. Because of the mass number of them, I think it would be much more efficient to answer questions and complains using the Journal Message Boards. Through this post, comment with any questions and/or complaints and I will try to respond to them.

A lot of people seem to be having success with this, so I thought I might give it a try.

The one I'm worried about the most is named Ahiru. She was with me right before I came here, but I've seen no sign of her. She's a yellow duck with a large yellow feather sticking out from her forhead, and she has blue eyes. She's very intelligent, so you should be able to communicate if you see her.

Since others seem to be coming here...there's two others that may be here, so I'll describe them as well.

Read more... )

My guess is the last two probably aren't here, but I thought it might be good to check. Finding Ahiru, however, is very important, since there's a higher chance of her being here and I'm worried about her being alone. Please let me know if you see them. Thank you.

Alright all you new people - I don't know why I'm doing this (okay, maybe because I'm bored) but, no one else seems to be bothering and frankly it's getting damn annoying seeing the same messages over and over. So to avoid all the stupidity... For all you idiots people who don't know how to read other messages before they post pretty much the exact damn same thing everyone else before them has posted, here's all you really need to know:

1. This damn hell of a place is called Paixao. It's in some other world, on an island, probably in another dimension. Maybe even an alternate one. Who the hell knows.

2. Is there anything else here other than this island? Don't know either. If you want to swim for, who knows how far, knock yourself out, there could be. Maybe this will thin out some of the idiots... drowning would be doing us all a favor...

3. No, you can't leave. I can't even get my Dimensional Gatekeeper to get me away from here, which has never happened before.

4. This place is full of idiotic, blonde residents. They're more damn useless than even normal humans generally are.

5. It sucks.

So there you have it. If you REALLY want to know more there this that someone here wrote that has a lot more than I feel like writing.

Ah, finally, a messageboard! It's about time I found something that I recognize in this city, even if it is on a strange little electronic device such as this.

I've never actually posted a mark on one of these before, but I have a sneaking suspicision that my sudden appearance in this city has something to do with a certain grimy bangaa by the name of Ba'Gamnan. And this is the last straw; it's high time I rid myself of the nuisance once and for all.

I would estimate him to be a Rank V mark, and he can be found barrelling clumsily around Rabanastre on practically any given day. Let me know if you're interested in this petition. Archadian nobility and those who work closely with them need not apply.
