Trivia Tropes

  • Blooper:
    • Once, a big note reading THIS RP IS SCHEDULED TO END ON JANUARY 2ND was put up just before a winter hiatus. Thankfully, it was just a break notice worded wrong, and the incident is now on the Funny page.
    • There's supposed to be a theme of every day relating to books, but it was forgotten about for Day 5. There was originally going to be children's bookshelves around the city.
  • Creator's Favorite Episode: Word of God states that, out of the five days played so far, he likes Day 4 the most due to everyone falling for the bait of being trapped inside a cloud made entirely of paper being lit on fire, but otherwise he's looking forward to the final battle.
  • Crossplayer: Many players: FullMoon back when he played Alice, ColeMinor, Katarsus, Astrokitty...
  • Door Stopper: By the end of Day 18, the roleplay was nearly four million words long (that's three times the length of The Dark Tower series.)
  • Fan Nickname:
    • The Small Cute Girls Brigade and variants for Mary and Sadness, as well as any other small cute female character that happens to be around them.
    • FullMoon calls Day 7 Murphy's Law day simply because anything that could go wrong for our protagonists has gone wrong so far.
    • Skooter 910, Oceanstuck and secretlyasuperhero all call Day 16 Slavery Day, due to certain events that take place.
    • Several players on the skype chat call OFB, One Fucking Bird or something similar.
    • Oceanstuck has a tendency to call Ghostfreak Ghostfuck or other Ghostf— derivatives. This occasionally spills over into Lewis' narration.
  • I Knew It!: Ud The Imp guessed that the "blue armored demon" was a space marine.
    • All Hail Thrall guessed that Miss Tairee was from StarCraft.
    • Several tropers guessed that the person framing Ben for the church massacre was the predator from Day 14.
  • Line to God: Firock the game mod is in the discussion thread almost every day, and he can be PMed any time.
  • Loads and Loads of Writers: There are exactly thirty active players at the time of day 5, and that's not even counting the players who have dropped out or not posted in over a day.
  • Meme Acknowledgement: The "yeti incident."
  • The Other Darrin: Three different players have, at some point, joined as the titular character of Samurai Jack. He was never in the city for very long, however.
  • Series Hiatus: The scheduled breaks, such as the one for Winter 2015-16.
  • Talking to Himself: A few players are playing a character duo, such as Locoman playing Rick and Morty.
  • Throw It In!: Originally, Miss Tairee was going to keep her godlike boss a secret for a few days.
  • What Could Have Been: The Day 21 challenge was going to be a "hide-and-seek" game with "changelings inside the store who were hiding as other people and items"note . However, the player characters were busy with other things and the challenge never took place.
  • Word of God: Plenty.
    • According to Miss Tairee, the RP will last 29 ingame days; it'll actually last 30.
    • On Day Three, when Rex tried to hack Tairee's computer, several codes were hidden in the resulting gibberish, including the themes of Day 4 and 5, and supposedly the name of Miss Tairee's boss.
    • Besides "mystery," Miss Tairee's name has another pun. It's with "secretary".
  • Writing by the Seat of Your Pants: At least a few players do this.
