Here on Bombarda our members often say that our little group feels like one big Bombarda family, and honestly that's my favourite thing about this place - we're a community as much as a writing space. But when you're new to the site, seeing that and trying to get involved in that sort of pre-established group can be very intimidating. We love you already and we definitely want you to jump straight in with us, but sometimes it's hard for us to see if you're getting all the support you need because we're too excited gushing about characters. So that's where this comes in.
<p>
We want to start pairing new Bombarda members up with long standing veterans of the site so they've got someone they can easily turn to for questions and plot ideas. Our older members know the site canon and the characters and the past events and so on well enough that they'll be able to explain most things, or at least will know where to look or who to go for to find out any other answers. It can also be intimidating to speak up in shippers and the Discord server when you're new, so our buddies will also step in to help with that by pairing up characters that might be interesting or stirring plots their new member could get involved in. You can check out the full list of buddy duties below.
<p>
After a month of working with the buddy, the new member will be asked what they thought of their buddy and the system, and asked to let us know what works and what we could do better. We’ll pass thefeedback onto their buddy to help them continue to improved! After that month, the new member is of course still welcome to chat and work with their buddy (because hopefully they’ll be a friend by then too), and we welcome feedback at all times too; the only thing that will change is officially the buddy will then be free to take on another new member as well.
<p>
If you'd like to become a Buddy, make sure you meet the requirements below and then fill out the code at the bottom of this post and reply to this thread with it. When we get a new member, they'll be asked if they have any preference for who they are paired with (based on the characters or expertise you have listed), or if not, they will be randomly assigned to someone, and your current new members will be tagged in your reply so you can get easy access to their profiles.
<p>
As always, any questions, just ask Sigyn!
<p>
<div class="forumrules-small"><xx>Buddy Duties</xx></div>
<p>
  • Answer any questions your new member might have about Bomb
  • Facilitate questions/introductions to other members and to staff
  • Tag shippers of characters you think your new member's character might work well with, and suggest reasons why they should meet or plots they could have
  • Bring up your new member's character in the same way you would your own in Discord or the cbox when plots come up in conversation
  • Give context or explanations to your new member if a group conversation is referencing old plots etc ,that they might not know about
  • Anything else your new member might need!
<br>
<p>
<div class="forumrules-small"><xx>Requirements for Buddies</xx></div>
<p>
  • Must have been a member Bombarda for more than one month
  • Must be considered ‘active’ with regards to all current characters (all characters must have a post within the past month)
  • Must be easily and frequently contactable (i.e. checks PMs or Discord preferably once a day)
  • Must be willing to actively talk to and tag other members in public settings to encourage plotting and to advertise the new member's character (i.e. don't be shy, get them out there!)
  • Must feel confident with Bombarda canon or at least happy enough to ask staff
<br>
<p>
<b>Note:</b><br>
From now on, each new member will be signed up to a buddy when their character is accepted, and it’s then up to them how much they want to use the system. However if any recently joined members would also like to be assigned a buddy, just let Sigyn know and we can arrange this for you.

He’s an old softy at heart though, so it may well be the classic image of settling down with a wife and children, though he’d still want to be free. Raising a family on a boat sailing the seven seas then maybe? Or living out of a tent one could store in a pocket as you apparated to fascinating new locations? </h3>

<h1>Abraham De Lacey</h1>
According to my birth certificate, I was named Abraham by my parents. Or by my ma at least, there’s no details about my dad on the thing so I assume he wasn’t there. My ma gave me up straight away so all I know about her is what’s written down there – kind of seems like she was going to keep me at first if she planned out the name and everything though right? But hey, maybe she changed her mind. Her name was Philippa De Lacey though, it says it right there on the certificate. I kind of keep an eye out for that name while I wander I guess, might be cool to meet her one day and thank her for bringing me into the world but I don’t really mind if I never get to. It’d be nice to have a coffee and a chat, you know? But she didn’t raise me, she didn’t contribute to who I am – she’s just another stranger on the highway of life.
<p>
Can’t really tell you all too much about this part of my life though, I was kind’a too young at the time to remember any of it. I’ve heard the odd story though. I went into an adoption agency or something, orphanage, I don’t know but no-one wanted the scruffy ginger kid at first. I never minded much, got to hang with the other little’uns for longer instead, and the rules weren’t too strict there so you could come and go as you like. I guess I should say it was all muggle too. I don’t know if my ma was a witch or not, would probably ask her that first if I met her, but I guess if I was handed off pretty quickly there was no time to mention magic or anything. So I spent the first few years of my life around muggle kids. Good for you that I think, getting to know the harder way of life with no magic to guide you, and then you can always adapt to the simple life later.
<p>
Aaaaaaaaaanyway, where was I? Right, childhood, kid life, the simple days. Didn’t do much back then. Don’t now either though really. It was a lot of playing in the woods, in the streets, anywhere I could, making up stories, playing games, all that sort of stuff. Families would come in to the orphanage, agency, whatever the hell it was, and take a look at the kids ‘on offer’. They’d take the pretty ones, the cute ones, the ones who had a talent, and me and the rest of the unwanted ones would carry on messing about. It was fine, we didn’t care. Well, I guess, some of them seemed to care, since they’d straighten up all tall and proper when the families came in, and eventually they’d get taken too. I always thought you shouldn’t pretend to be someone else because hey if you end up with a family that likes your fake act, you won’t be happy right?
<p>
So that’s why it took me a bit longer til a family took a liking to me. They were nice enough, big group, lots of other fostered kids already. Can’t remember how old I was when I went with them but I know it wasn’t for long anyway. They were nice, don’t get me wrong, friendly, a decent deal but we just didn’t mesh, you know? They had lots of rules, locked doors, didn’t like me going outside on my own and I was just never cut out for that kind of life. So I scarpered. Except I had to wait for the right opportunity of course, and since I was particularly bothered about <i>when</i> I made my exit, nor <i>where</i> exactly I took a run from, I actually ended up doing it while we were on holiday one time…

<p>
<h1>Giuseppe</h1>
The family that named me Giuseppe were Italian wizards, who lived just at the edge of Rome. My foster family had taken us all on a trip there one time, to see the sights and all that lot, and of course the hotel didn’t have quite the tight level of security their home did so it was much easier to just slip out one evening when no-one was looking. They put out a big search party for me of course, I mean, I don’t think it was necessary since I was quite capable of looking after myself and I was more than happy exploring the city for some fun, but apparently that’s what you do with missing kids. Anyway, I dodged most of that stuff because all the shouting and flashing lights scared me anyway. And I ended up wandering into some little neighbourhood and I gotta admit, I was pretty hungry by then. So I was having a look through some of the bins around there an- hey hey don’t judge me alright? I was hungry! People throw good stuff out just because its gone past the little number date stamped on the packaging, it’s stupid! And Italian food is great even when its cold so the scrapings are pretty nice still.
<p>
I used to know this neat trick when I was little, didn’t know it was magic at the time of course, but I used to be really good at kind of drawing the good stuff towards me when I went dumpster diving. I thought it was just luck at first but nope, I could actually summon the biggest scraps to my hands, and make them all clean and safe in the process too. I was doing this when one of the local residents came out to try and shoo me away, but then when they saw what I was doing they started asking me all these questions. Except, like, I don’t speak Italian. Or didn’t then anyway. So it was all kind’a just… noise. It was… nice noise? I could tell it wasn’t aggressive but it was still nonsense. Anyway, we got through with some weird hand signals and stuff and eventually I was invited into their house. I’m sure they probably asked my name at some point which I obviously didn’t answer because didn’t know what the question meant so after a while they gave me a name just so they had something to call me by. They chose Giuseppe. It’s not too bad I guess. Pretty different from Abraham but hey, new life, new name, it just made sense.
<p>
As I said, these new guys were wizards, and my little trick with the trash had apparently been enough to prove to them that I had magic too. Communication was a little tricky at first but we mostly got by and they were really lenient with rules and stuff. I think. Not sure really, couldn’t understand them anyway. Point is, I ended up sticking around with that family for a bit instead, and learned a little bit about magic along the way. I think they called off the ‘search’ for me too, or at least, people stopped looking eventually and I didn’t have to hide so much so I’m assuming they did something to appease the muggle police officers. Probably obliviated my old family too which raises a few moral questions you know but eh, what can you do?
<p>
I guess this is about my third new life by now, right? Born, off to the big house place, the foster fam’ in England, then these guys in Italy? Pretty exciting huh? I wasn’t even ten by this point and I’d already lived all across Europe… well, two places across Europe but still, off my own back pretty much too. Don’t you think that’s cool? No? Well let me tell you a bit more then, maybe the next part of the story will be interesting enough for you.
<p>
<h1>Casey</h1>
What name are we up to? Casey, right? This story’s a good one actually. So my wizarding fam’ went travelling a lot and said I could go with them when I wanted to, so we went to all sorts of different places. I kind of sort of got a handle on Italian after a while, more or less anyway, but we’d go to places where the locals spoke English anyway. Like I said, my current family were super lax with rules, so they always gave me a little packet of floo powder and told me to ‘come home eventually’ whenever we went anywhere. Sweet, right? Perfect life for me to be honest. But anyway, so I met lots of people on these travels, and I always introduced myself as Casey. It was the name of one of the kids right back at my first home, orphanage, place, thing and to be honest it was the first thing that came into my head. He was an Irish kid after all, and I was in Ireland the first time I needed a new name. Didn’t want to use ‘Abraham’ in case anyone <i>was</i> still looking for me after running away the first time, and Giuseppe didn’t kind’a sound right in my accent, you know? Plus this was another new life, so needed a fresh new name to match it.
<p>
I had all my best adventures at this age, and one day you might be lucky enough to hear some of them from me. I met some great people, some gorgeous dames too if I may say so although yeah I was kind of young to fully appreciate that I guess. Anyway, I used to stay away from home for months at a time some times, and my new fam’ was fine with it, even though I guess they kind of shouldn’t have been? I’m not complaining though. Right, so, yeah, one time when I cam home there was a letter waiting for me from Beauxbatons, big school in France apparently. Magic school, to learn magic at, you know the drill. I was supposed to start there in September, and, you know… spend all my time there… in one place… For months at a time… between four walls… Not my style really, so when I heard the news I may have sort of left again. I don’t think they minded. They didn’t hunt for me like the last guys did anyway, but maybe they just thought I’d come back one day. Don’t know if I should be offended by that maybe but… eh, it worked for me.
<p>
I hung out with the kids that knew me as Casey for a while then; I stole a whole bag of floo powder on my way out so I travelled across loads of the towns we’d visited in Europe to visit all the people I’d got to know over the last few years. The thing is though, these letters are pretty persistent. They found me wherever I went. And to give them credit, they started addressing them to Casey after a while too. I’m a pretty curious cat I gotta say, so they were kind’a starting to wear me down too. Thing is, no matter how intrigued I was, I didn’t really want to end up trapped in one place still, so I needed a back up plan.
<p>
So, surprise, surprise, I integrated myself into a new group. Because I’m pretty good at that. On my travels I’d found a sort of ‘home for stray kids’ thing, since a lot of my friends camped out there. Kind old guy called O’Malley took in a bunch of homeless kids and basically just made sure they had food and shelter, so I stuck around with him for a bit. He was a wizard too (pretty easy to figure out considering how much bigger the inside of his house was than the outside but honestly muggle kids can be pretty oblivious sometimes), so I cut a sort of deal with him. I’d help out with chores and stuff if he taught me enough magic to keep the school off my back. I wasn’t thrilled with my side, since I ended up mostly looking after the younger kids. I could give them life experience I guess and I could keep an eye on them so they didn’t get in trouble but, you know, ew, waste of time. Anyway, the plan worked, the letters stopped, and I stuck around with this new little gang of misfits for a little while. He never tried to tame us see, never tried to collar us and make us his, he let us be as free as we wanted.
<p>
‘Course, the world very rarely stays still, does it? Didn’t take long ‘til I heard about this ‘integration’ thing going on with the schools. Students could hop between three whole countries, and, well, I was kind of starting to get antsy hanging around one place already. O’Malley was great but, well, you know me well enough by now. So despite life being good enough in the in between time, when the September after I turned 13 rolled around, I decided I actually wanted to poke my nose around this school. O’Malley was fine with it, and we sent an owl to the school to get things rolling. So, but delayed, but I went off to school eventually, starting in third year. Bit behind but eh, I’m not there for the academics anyway.

<p>
<h1>Thomas O’Malley</h1>
I should probably legally change my name to Thomas O’Malley by now. It’s what everyone knows me as after all. Not sure how old you have to be to do that, or how to do it actually… ‘Suppose it doesn’t really matter what my ‘legal’ name is anyway, it’s what people call me that counts. You can probably guess where my surname came from. And ‘Tom’ had been a nickname of mine for a while that I just decided to stick with. Short for Tomcat, ‘swhat most of the boys who knew me as Casey used to call me for being a bit of a flirt. Figured I’d just make it a bit more permanent. It’s the one I like most too I think, chosen for me rather than enforced, and, well I didn’t put much thought into Casey it was kind of a desperate clutching for the first name I could think of.
<p>
I’m not bored yet so you have to give the schools some credit for that. There are enough little nooks and crannies to poke around in but don’t get me wrong, as soon as I’ve covered everywhere I’m out of here. But three schools is a lotta space, lotta people, I’ve got some more time to waste here. I’m not doing great in the classes but I’m not trying so not really a surprise. The clubs are great though. Sport has never really been my thing, no time for it, but I’ve always had a soft spot for music. Never had a whole lot of opportunity to enjoy it really, always on the move, but some of the kids at O’Malley’s had a thing for jazz so they kind of got me into it. Like minds and all that, it’s good to be around people with a shared interest. Plus, there are a lot of gals in this school. I’m just saying, I’d like to introduce myself, you know?
<p>
No idea what I’m doing next before you ask. Wandering free. That’s it, that’s the plan. Can’t help it, I’ve got that wanderlust. I gotta walk the scene, kick up highway dust, feel the green grass, strut them city streets… You know, the good life.

<h1>CONNECTIONS</h1>
<b>NAME:</b> Obviously O’Malley’s long name is one of his biggest features, which seems to come from every new place he’s been taken in as an alley cat. That’s a little harder to do with a human since you don’t generally change a child’s name when you adopt them, so I’ve done as best as I can to incorporate all of them. As for some of the logic with the individual names, De Lacey is more common as a surname so I figured I’d take the first bit as his birth name. De Lacey is also a Norman name, so makes sense for him to come from England but then that also gives him some French history. Giuseppe is obviously Italian and in his song he specifically says ‘Calcutta to Rome’ so made sense to give him a big chunk of Italian history to go with his French and English too. Another random connection, his mother’s name is Phillipa because his voice actor was Phil Harris.
<p>
<b>MAGIC CONNECTIONS:</b> I figure he’s probably some variant of halfblood but the fact that he doesn’t know or particularly care mirrors how he drifts between house cat and alley cat in his actual history. His boggart is just a cat reference and related to bits of the film too but I wanted a fairly simple fear for him rather than something deep since he wears most of his personality on the surface. His patronus is a cat not just for the obvious canon connection but again for that freedom to travel and move between families so easily so I think it fits his family too. Also it’s not necessarily that he doesn’t <i>have</i> a happy enough memory, it’s more that he’s not totally sure what makes him perfectly happy so the memory he is currently trying to use just isn’t strong enough. As for his wand, it’s kneazle whisker because of the cat connection but also because its known to be not overly powerful, while kneazle’s are known to be very independent, occasionally aggressive, and good guides for people which all fit Tom very well (but slightly too grand for his patronus, I think average tomcat fits better there). And then pine for the wood is because it’s seen in independent wielders who are potentially seen as loners and mysterious which definitely fits O’Malley’s first entrance in the film. It’s also said to be able to adapt to new methods and considering he switches from alley at to house cat at the end of the film I figured that was a good match too.
<p>
<b>SCHOOL CONNECTIONS:</b> Since Aristocats is set in France he had to go to Beauxbatons, but since he doesn’t have a French accent and his names are more English than they are French, plus all the stuff about him travelling all over Europe as referenced by Duchess in the film too, I thought he’d be better off as English. He’s not an Elite not only because he doesn’t have a specific skill but because he definitely wouldn’t care enough to try. He loves the integration because more freedom and more people, and he’s part of the music club because of the big jazz section of the film around Everybody Wants to Be a Cat.
<p>
<b>OTHER:</b> I chose Tom Holland as his face claim because he’s young, cheeky, close enough appearance wise in my opinion to a ginger tom cat, and he has some good smiley and cheery GIFs that I just think match his personality well. There are also a few things in his personality I’m not sure are obvious enough from the app so the fact he’s a lady’s man is incorporated in this version too, as is his skill with kids. He doesn’t particularly like them at first (hence his reluctance to help out with the younger ones in O’Malley’s home) but he really is good with the responsibility when he gets it.

<div class="one">Desert Island Discord</div>
<div class="two"><div class="three"><div class="four">

<center><p>
<div class="forumrules-small">THE SUMMARY</div>
<p>
For the month of May, we have opened a new Discord server, inside which we will be running our first server-based event. The server will be used for short, fast roleplay posts from characters in a particular setting, reminiscent of the old MSN and AOL roleplays some of us started out on, and are simply a step further from the rapidfire type threads we do on site.
<p>
This is in-line with Bombarda's second birthday halfway through the month, since we wanted a way to celebrate the fact that our community exists and thrives both onsite and off, and we really do appreciate the server plotting and the IC games as well as the actual threads on site. This was thought up as a compromise between those two things to try and tie them together more thoroughly.
<p>
The setting we have chosen is the classic desert island, though why your character has ended up there is entirely up to you. It could be anything from a nice holiday to a kidnapping to a portkey gone badly wrong. The server is split into six IC areas to write in, as well as a general OOC area for discussions, and an area for rules and updates in case anything changes as we get feedback throughout the month. This event can be considered to be Alternate Universe, by which I mean anything that happens in the event is not considered to have happened canonically to the characters on Bombarda unless otherwise stated by the members themselves - so don't worry about trying to fit a sudden holiday into your character's current timeline if it doesn't make sense to do so, it can just be entirely AU for them!
<p>
For those of you with a Discord account already, the server invite code is <b>FTNmvZB</b>. Simply press the + button at the bottom of your server list, click 'join a server', and paste that code into the box. Alternatively, <a href='https://discord.gg/FTNmvZB'>CLICK HERE</a>. For those that don't have an account, read the 'With Regards to Discord' section below for details of our Guest account and more.
<br><br>
<p>
<div class="forumrules-small"><xx>THE RULES</xx></div>
<p>
  • <b>Your display name should be your character name</b> <br>This should be set to the character you are currently writing as, and if you swap to a different character you should change your name to reflect this. To change it, right click on your name in the list of members in the right hand menu on the server, and click 'change nickname'<p>
  • <b>Do not post OOC messages in the IC areas</b> <br>In order to keep things flowing, the only things that should be posted in the IC areas are actual roleplay posts. Any OOC chatter or plotting or even just notes to the person you're writing with should be posted in the 'OOC notes and chat' area. If it's aimed at a specific person, you can tag them in the message by using @username. If you absolutely have to post something OOC in an IC area, please post it inside double brackets (( like this )) <p>
  • <b>IC posts should be in the style of regular site posts</b> <br> This means posts should be written out in third person past tense like a regular roleplay post, with described actions and speech in quotation marks. There is a character limit on messages in Discord which should stop you writing anything too long (posts should definitely not be split into two messages), but please bare in mind we only expect a line or two from you for most posts. <p>
  • <b>For chat-style interactions, use the ICC</b> <br> The site's IC cbox can be used for the type of interactions where the main feature is speech, and actions are written inside punctuation, -like this- *or this*. The setting for the ICC can be anywhere within the desert island. A direct link to the ICC is <a href-='http://my.cbox.ws/bombardamaximaic'>HERE</a> <p>
  • <b>You can save your roleplays in this board</b> <br> As scrolling back through the server to find previous interactions can be difficult and arduous to do, you can save your Discord server roleplays in this board in any format you want. In fact, we encourage you to do so so that other members who weren't involved at the time can read back and see what else is going on in this event. It's not compulsory though, just highly recommended.
<br>
<p>
<div class="forumrules-small">WITH REGARDS TO DISCORD</div>
<p>
<b>You do not need to have a Discord account to take part in this event</b>. Not everyone has one or wants one, so we have set up a guest account that you can use to take part even if you're completely new to Discord or have no long term interest in it. Only one member can be using this at a time, so if this proves to be very popular we can set up further guest accounts to be used as well. The login details are as follows, email: <i>bombardamaximarp@aol.com</i> & password: <i>bombardamaxima</i>
<p>
<b>You do not need to download Discord to take part in this event</b>. The webapp for Discord is just as good as the downloaded version, so all you need to do is log in <a href='https://discordapp.com/login'>HERE</a> with your own account or with the guest account details given above.
<p>
<b>This event takes place in a separate server to the usual Bombarda Server</b>. This is not for OOC chatter between members, that will stay in our usual server. Therefore, you can still join this server and participate in the event even if you have no interest in joining the actual server. If you'd rather not use your actual Discord account (or if you don't want people to know you have one) then feel free to use the Guest account.
<p>
<b>If you really hate Discord, you can still take part in the event using the ICC</b>. For the month of May, the IC cbox will also be incorporated into this event, so if you don't want to use Discord at all. This will be operating as usual for chat type interactions, but the setting will be the same desert island as the rest of the event.
<p>
<b>If none of the above helps, talk to Sigyn.</b> We want this event to be special and different but it should still be accessible to all members. Therefore, if the above points still don't make you feel like you can take part in this event, please talk to Sigyn and she will try to think up better solutions or other ways to get involved in the event. These things are for you all to enjoy and it doesn't work if some people are left out so she will be thrilled to brainstorm something further for you!
<br><br>
<p>
<div class="forumrules-small"><xx>ANYTHING ELSE?</xx></div>
<p>
Since this is new, it's entirely likely there will be kinks and bugs to work out, so if you think any part of this isn't running smoothly or could be done better, please let staff know as soon as possible so we can get on fixing that! If this sort of event proves to be popular then we can do it again, and other less conventional style events too, but if it falls flat then we'll know to avoid it next time, so feedback is always super important to us, whether it's positive or negative!
<p>
One final note, as it is Bombarda's birthday on the 15th of May, keep an eye out for more things popping up to celebrate our anniversary on the day itself!

Hey guys!

I have a few things coming up so figured I'd better put an absence up now just to be safe. I should still be around on Discord and hopefully in the cbox through all of this but posts might be slow for a while!

A few key dates coming up:

up to 1st May - this is my final probation meeting which basically signifies end of my training and getting signed onto a full contract in my job (assuming I pass). So for the run up to this I am just a bit stressed so posting will be a lot harder.

27th-30th April - I have a friend visiting and we're going to see Hamilton so I'll be busy these days.

9th-13th May - I am visiting Dannie so chances are we'll be around a bit maybe for games, but probably no posting in this time.

26th-27th May - I am at two cons with Kon so again, maybe games, probably not posts.

TL;DR up until the 1st of May I'm going to be pretty stressed with work things, and then after that I have a few actual holiday type things. Should be around for most of it, just probably won't be posting a whole lot <3

<div class="forumrules-big">Play our roleplay bingo!
</div>
<br><br>
Greetings Bombers! This month's event is a game of roleplay bingo!
<p>
Below you will see we have two bingo cards for you to play with. The aim of the game is to complete and then cross off every challenge on the card. The challenges are all to do with threads and posts on Bombarda, and must all be completed by one character (although you can have a card for each character if you want to get them each a frog). Each challenge must be done in a different post, but multiple can be achieved in the same thread. Posts must be posted between 1st and 30th April to be counted, and threads for challenges that ask you to start a thread must have begun on or after 1st April. Drabbles and threads can be posted in this subboard if you would like, but challenges can be completed anywhere on the site.
<p>
For each challenge that you complete we'll need a link to the post or thread that you completed it in, and when you've got them all, you can earn yourself a frog. Post your bingo card below so we can see every time you cross something off, and then shout BINGO when you're done (i.e. add the code at the bottom of the page to your post so we know you've finished)! There's also going to be a special frog available for the first person to get a line! This has to be either three squares across or three down on your chosen card, but you can use the 'free space' square to complete your line (you don't need to do anything to tick this one off, it's free). Again, only one character will win this frog so get your skates on because the first to post their line below with links wins!
<p>
Any questions, just let me know and I'll do my best to explain further but for now, have a look at our cards and pick which one you want (or try a different one for each character if you fancy it!)
