atreideslioness: (Litany Against Fear)
Too often, students become wrapped up in the strange culture of Fandom Island, never looking past its boarders to see the wider world. This class is an opportunity to explore the mainland on a regular basis, and take in some of the wonders that this planet has to offer. Students will travel by portal to various points of interest all over the United States, spending two hours at each stop to learn about the culture of the time and place they are living in.

THIS IS A FIELD TRIP CLASS. Instead of isolating students by using the Danger Shop to simulate non-Fandom environments, Ghanima is going to take the students off-island to three museums, three plays, three national parks, and three formal restaurants. This gives us twelve classes, which gives me room to adjust in case of BDE/Trauma/RL. Because, ngl, this is Fandom, and there will be trauma at some point. That's just how it works. Ghanima will be wearing sunglasses or special contacts to disguise her eyes when off-island, and suggests that any clearly non-human students consider making similar adjustments. Causing riots is not nearly as fun as it sounds.

She is also in the market for a TA. Comments are screened, questions will be unscreened, and the RNG will dictate the TA on Monday.

From cityscapes to icebergs, each week we will look at a different type of terrain, and one thing you can do to make your life easier. Please be aware that there is no syllabus to this class, because Ghanima is a cruel woman and does not want you to have time to prepare for each scenario.

Students may end up covering a few of the same types of terrain, but with different activities from last time. You can see previous classes here, and I'm happy to take suggestions on what ya'll would like to do this time around.

TA: TBD. Ghanima needs one, are you interested? Comments are screened, preferences is given to grads needing a reason to stay on campus, and the RNG Gods will decide your fate.

atreideslioness: (OOC the 2nd!)
So as we mentioned here, this Sunday's Fight Club will be tag-team fights! We're asking people to sign-up with a partner, and then we'll RNG pairs together. Sign-ups close Friday at noon, and yes, this is open to alumni too, if you know you're going to be on the island.

We're hoping to RNG stuff Friday afternoon, so that we can notify people of their matches, so things can get planned out or preplayed, in case of timezone insanity.

And, as always, we're looking to do more themed weeks with Fight Club -- if you have an idea, please suggest it!

atreideslioness: (History)
Ghanima is looking for a pair of minions TAs for World Mythology, to be determined by the whims of the RNG. Duties include passing out handouts, posting for me if I get eaten by RL, and, if there's a myth you're passionate about, the opportunity to teach class that day.

Also, laughing at your classmates for the final, but we'll get there.

Comments are screened, TAs will be drawn on Wednesday the 30th.

I said I'd post this again, and lo, I have!

As mentioned, Fight Club is re-organizing! Kinda! Instead of three groups for the RNG, there will now be two, to give the members a chance to learn from more experienced fighters.

This weekend, there will also be a thread for IC evaluations, for those of you in-club who are looking to change groups, or just get suggestions on how to improve your technique.

For those of you unfamiliar with Fight Club, the premise is simple. )

Fight Club takes place on Sunday evenings at the Atlas Gym, posted on Sunday morning for maximum SP. All fights will be supervised by Ghanima and/or Tyler, and neither of them is afraid to wade in and break things up if they have to.

Everyone check the OCD to indicate your interest, and ask any questions!

ETA: Yup, we're asking even previous participants to re-register, as we 1) do not wish to mod ability levels, even based on the previous RNG results, and 2) we know schedules change, especially in the summer. You can always opt in/out of the next week's RNG by leaving us a note in the OOC thread, so don't feel you need to make every meeting.
