Event and Virus Suggestions mk II



» Please be as detailed as possible so everyone can understand. A virus explanation that isn't clear is liable to lose that virus votes during polling.


» Please don't just suggest a virus on a whim, make sure you've thought it through! We end up with such a massive backlog that we'll never get through them.

» Yays, nays, and suggestions are okay, but in-depth plotting should be done elsewhere. Please take personal conversations to IM, to stop page cluttering.

» The virus with the lowest number of votes during polling will be removed. There's no rule against re-submitting it (if for example you know it had support and it was just that specific month was bad timing), but given the amount of suggestions we get, it's just not feasible to leave them all on the poll.

» The mods reserve the right to veto or edit any virus or event.

» Any event that the characters themselves will be orchestrating, such as Death's Picnic, a Halloween party, or a bar crawl, are NOT events for the purposes of this post. Permission is not needed to run such events. However, if you know the event is going to be of a considerable size, please avoid scheduling it alongside other viruses or major events to prevent comm flooding.

» Any event or virus (NOT a personal event or virus) that would require mod approval for sensitive subject matter also goes here. It will be treated as its permission comment.

[identity profile] 2010-08-24 03:36 am (UTC)(link)
Virus or Event?: Event
Duration: 4-5
Description: This could also be called the Dungeon Diving event. This will be set up like the Oregon Trail Event, maybe with it's own community.

Basically, the event premise is the characters are stuck in a real life Dungeons and Dragons game. They are the characters, not the people sitting around the table. So, what does this mean? Loot! Monsters! Battling other parties for fun and profit! Getting along! Or not. Killing/protecting innocents!

Now for the details.

Characters are trapped in a fantasy setting with elves, dwarves, goblins, giant slime monsters, same old same old. Except they can't do what they normally could. If your character is a witch normally? She doesn't have her original powers; she might have a different set of spells as a warlock or a wizard but that's a different set of rules right there. Or then again, she might be trained as a warrior and be swinging a battle axe that's her height. It's all up to the player what kind of new abilities (within reason, there will be guidelines when the event is announced) their character has but they can't have their original canon powers during the event.

Characters are then grouped up into parties of adventurers (either the players choose the groups or randomly generated ones). Each group will be given an objective (retrieve an object, kill a wizard, save a maiden, etc) and the characters will try to achieve that objective. Or they get distracted by the prospect of slaughtering a random family and discover an underground dungeon in the basement. Basically, they're given an objective but they can choose whether to do it or not; though they all will have some kind of adventure whether they (IC-ly) want to do it or not. Players can choose the specifics.

Then at the end of the event they're sent back to their own worlds. Loot gone because really, do you want random characters getting and keeping mega-weapons of awesome?

Anything else: I will be willing to set this up, create layouts of dungeons, create NPCs and monsters, etc.

Vacation Event

[identity profile] 2011-03-31 06:33 pm (UTC)(link)
Virus or Event?: Event
Duration: 5 days
Description: Pretty much the community sends everyone on vacation. It can be a the perfect honeymoon with a partner, friend, or someone they never met, a group tour of the Amazon, spa trip, staying at a cute bed and breakfast, whatever. Basically everyone is forced somewhere to "relax" for a five days in a place of the community's choosing.

Examples: Rita and Dexter go on the perfect honeymoon in Paris! ... while Rita points out they're not married yet the whole time and people think she's kidding.

Example #2: Zuko and Azula are forced onto a family retreat. :>

Anything else: n/a

[personal profile] crackpotcrocker 2012-03-15 08:36 pm (UTC)(link)
Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 1 - 2 days
Description: Cutie Mark Pox,
Cutie Marks are something from My Little Pony that each pony recieves when he or she figures out their special talent. The cutie mark pox, is uncontrollable and random talents.
In this case, your character notices a marking on them (a tatoo if you will) of say, a pair of ice skates, suddenly you are a pro ice skater or dishes, suddenly you can wash dishes at the speed of light or juggle them. Maybe tap dance shoes appear on your skin and you can't stop dancing. What cutie marks appear on your character and how many would be up to the player.
Anything else: You can't stop doing all of your special talents. Might want to take a rest....
material_guy: (Ponder ponder ponder...)

Virus or Event?: Virus Addition
Duration: See description
Description: Characters are used to the concepts of viruses now so a lot of things are treated as "this, too, will pass." A virus would have a very different effect if they believed the results were lasting. So perhaps on a virus the mods or the community thinks would be most fitting, it could have a normal wear off time for those who want the short term fun, then others keep going a bit longer with it. I think it would be ideal if the later wear-off time were after the second virus of the month for asuccesful fakeout.

Just want to let you know that this is a really good idea, and it's one that I definitely want to use - it won't be on the virus polls, because we want to be able to pick the most opportune time/virus for it, but just wanted to make sure you know it definitely hasn't been ignored!
starjam: (❝the screams all sound the same.❞)

tabula rasa virus

[personal profile] starjam 2012-04-13 05:44 am (UTC)(link)
Virus or Event?: virus!
Duration: 3 - 4 days
Description: named for the corresponding buffy episode, everyone wakes up one morning and they have total amnesia suddenly. obviously they still know how to function like a normal human being (figure of speech!!!) but they have no personal memories at all; they don't even know their name, or their race, or where they are. they will have to piece together an idea using their surroundings and the community! (of course, those ideas might be totally wrong. have fun making up names for each other.)
Anything else: although they still know how basic things work (i.e. they know that this is a TV and that is what it does, it's not some crazy ~magic picture box~), they probably won't know how their powers work, if they have any, e.g. azula suddenly finds that OH MY GOD YOU GUYS LOOK I CAN TOTALLY SHOOT FIRE FROM MY HANDS WHAT'S UP WITH THIS???? cue a lot of accidents stemming from rediscovered abilities - unless of course the character needs those abilities to survive or function, in which case they can have them as a sort of muscle memory, hahaha.
starjam: (❝don't go and leave me.❞)

[personal profile] starjam 2012-04-13 06:02 am (UTC)(link)
OH ALSO I SHOULD NOTE that even though it doesn't exactly make sense, they still retain their personalities - minatsuki will still be a tsundere bitch, not sunshine and rainbows - and they have vague ~feelings~ about other people that they would normally know (if they were particularly strong feelings before), e.g. yuri might be kind of dokidoki when she talks to battler but she would have absolutely no idea why, and minatsuki and azula would have a sort of lingering hatred but be really confused by it.

As requested - Mario Party Virus

[personal profile] twotailmechanic 2012-05-01 10:15 pm (UTC)(link)
Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 3 - 4 days?
Description: Like the Oregon Trail virus of way long ago, characters are put into plumper suits or dressed up as a princess as they go around the board in a game of Mario Party. Which one you ask? It can be 1 - 9 or a mixture.
Anything else: You can also choose to turn your character into a Toad, a Koopa, or a Yoshi (a Goomba or a Boo wouldn't really be fair since Goomas don't have arms, and Boos don't have feet and can go through walls) for extra hilarity.
lockon2urheart: (Haro happy! Haro happy!)

Re: As requested - Mario Party Virus

Virus or Event?: Event
Duration: 1-2 Days, could be longer depending on Tsundere natures or lonerness
Description: Your character's most precious item has been taken by some jerk, and that jerk hid the item behind a magic door. Said magic door will *only* open in the presence of some deep seated emotional feeling reveals. Got a love confession that won't come out? Yo. Got a guy who won't reveal who his friends are? Oops. In Marceline's canon, the feels reveal also has to be a song. But that restriction can be lifted or played straight, depending on the group. Also, feels reveals don't necessarily have to be *hidden* ones, just emotionally meaningful. Everyone will be RNG'd or pick their groups (idk how many groups there would be), and each group gets one door.
Anything else: No, I never get tired of linking to this song. Why do you ask?

The "What if DDD was a semi-jamjar with a sort-of plot" Event

[personal profile] stillneedawish 2012-10-06 05:10 pm (UTC)(link)
Virus or Event?: An event… I think…
Duration: It could probably be best to go for the full 5 days with it!
Description: Okay, after getting a bit of a positive response to this on plurk, I’m gonna give a shot at putting this out there…

TL;DR: what if DDD was a semi-jamjar with a vague semblance of an overall plot?

Actual TL;DR: What if there’s an AU out there where the community, being the constantly developing sentient program it is, became even more invasive in the lives of its members? The viruses, the candid camera, the forcing people to post, it was all just the beginning. Pretty soon, the community begins sucking some of its members inside its coding, trapping them in a data world. At first it only starts with characters who’ve died in their canons or during the events of their stay on the comm (so, anyone who’s averted a canon death like Lockon or Ten, for example), but soon enough other people from all the worlds the community’s connected to start to get dragged inside as well.

The data world is probably similar to the sort of thing going on in Tron, although I imagine it’d have loads of sections based on all the worlds the community’s connected to and visually be a bit of an anachronism soup. Characters inside would literally be made out of data, so they’d be susceptible to actual computer viruses, corruption, deletion, etc. Also, SHODAN would be a physical threat that would show up and cause real problems for everyone inside the code every once in a while, virus programs would look and act like Heartless or Shadows or Witches or other enemies from the worlds the community’s connected to…. stuff like that.

Characters inside the data world can’t escape it, but they can still communicate with characters left on the outside, who would use the community in much the same way as they do in actual DDD; they’d still be living in their own worlds and able to world-hop, etc. For the last part of the event, though, the community would start doing the opposite of what it did at the start; rather than pulling characters into its code, it would start encroaching outwards on the physical worlds, seeking to turn the multiverse into a huge data world. BECOME ONE WITH THE COMMUNISTY, BASICALLY. And I guess the event would ideally end with the characters involved finding a way to reverse the community’s mad bid for reality absorption?

BASICALLY DDD suffers from a case of Cerberus jamjar syndrome for 5 days and drags the characters along for the ride. Whatever way it ends up, things go back to normal after the event ends, effectively making this 5 days of a game AU!
Anything else: I realize this may sound a bit complicated, but hopefully it’s something the mods might think is a viable idea to play with!
do_it_ecstatically: (Default)


[personal profile] do_it_ecstatically 2013-02-18 08:18 pm (UTC)(link)
Virus or Event?: Event
Duration: Three-Four days. Can be longer
Description: The short version: Punch trees, get wood.

The long version: Welcome to the world of Minecraft! Nothing but land, trees, oddly placed deserts and winter tundras all over the place! It's time to eke out a life for the time you're here! Make a house out of dirt, tame a wolf so it can become a doggy that'll protect you! Fight off zombies, demonic spiders and the like! Make gear out of wood or diamonds! Just watch out for the Creepers. It would be a shame if anything happened to your nice everything.

Oh, and don't dig straight down. Respawning without all of that awesome gear in the middle of nowhere is NOT cool. Especially if you fell into lava.

Anything else: Hopefully this makes sense.
shadow_spread: (✰ I will show you fear)

dystopia virus

[personal profile] shadow_spread 2013-03-24 12:09 am (UTC)(link)
Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 3-4 day, I'd think
Description: Suddenly, characters are in a dystopia! This can work two ways:

Option 1: The character/cast is in a dystopian AU of their own world. i.e. Oh no, Voldemort won and now the world is ruled by magic Nazis!

Option 2: Your character is AU'd into a dystopian canon already represented in the game. For example, Attack on Titan is a post-apocalyptic series in which humans have to live in a walled area or be eaten by titans (or sometimes be eaten even in a walled area), and it's represented in the game through Mikasa. In this virus, one of the magical girls on the comm could be AU'd into being part of Mikasa's group of military trainees.

Anything else: It could probably also be worked so that a character could be AUd into another canon's dystopian AU (say, the Tenth Doctor being AUd into being part of a Gundam 00-based dystopia), but that might be making things overly complicated.
moonspell: (Uwaaah sparkles...)

Gizoogle Virus

[personal profile] moonspell 2013-06-07 05:14 am (UTC)(link)
Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 1 Day
Description: Everyone has to talk in Gizoogled speak. (Click textalizer for text-only instead of a whole website.)
Anything else: Example.
tenminutes: (Glasses make me look smarter!)

Golden Duck of Drama

[personal profile] tenminutes 2013-06-24 02:06 am (UTC)(link)
Virus or Event?: Event
Duration: 4 Days

Long ago, an ancient kingdom was lost to all the worlds when a great disaster slipped it into a pocket world inaccessible to even the great and powerful community of Drama Drama Duck. It is said every thousand years, when three unknown planets aligned in all worlds, a door to this pocket dimension appears and takes in chosen individuals to allow its quest for three days.

Here, in this Temple of the Duck, lies a mysterious treasure. There are rumors of a duck made of solid gold, its eyes encrusted with many rubies and its wings littered with a rainbow of precious gems. A divine treasure bestowed upon this universe by its long-missing gods, it is rumored to be capable of granting a single wish when the pocket world is touched by life from other worlds-- but beware! The temple is riddled with danger and stealing any other Treasures of Duck may have quite dramatic results.

Community members are mysteriously transported into an ancient temple, booby trapped to the teeth-- the classic boulder in a small hall to arrow darts, boxes rigged with poison, creepy ancient big-as-shit bugs, spiked walls, falling ceiling, rooms that fill up with water if you touch anything but the Golden Duck of Drama, etc. There's a whole treasure room filled with gold but upon arrival, each individual (characters may start in groups) ends up with only a brown satchel with one water bottle, a note that states the legend of the Golden Duck of Drama (above) and a warning not to touch any other treasure, and a totally random item (like a big list of items, then everyone who wants to participate gets one randomized by the mods or something so it's fair-- some cool/useful, some like. Empty Pez canisters. Characters can keep the items at the end of the event?)

Anything else: Uhh. IDK PROBABLY PUT PEOPLE IN GROUPS TO START WITH, then they can switch off as they please. Randomized maybe? Oh and there are torches in every room that mysteriously light as you approach them, like the refrigerated section at Target. Oh and if anyone actually gets the duck of drama, it can grant a wish but it only lasts for like one day and then everything goes back to normal.. and it's usually a messed up version of the wish (like in that movie Bedazzled).

alldevouringabomination: Where am I going? (Default)

[personal profile] alldevouringabomination 2013-07-10 04:57 am (UTC)(link)

Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 1-2 days
Description: No John, YOU are upside down! Your feet is in the air and your hands touch the ground, but walking still moves you normally (?). You won't fall into the sky if you're outside, but have fun staring at everyone's feet!
Anything else: Characters move as they always did. Think a sprite flip in a video game, with the obvious exception of arms being near the ground, etc.

A Mile In Their Shoes

Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 3-4 days
Description: You are suddenly someone else! Well, not really. Unlike the Bodyswap virus you have not changed bodies with someone else on the community, but your own body itself will turn into someone else's, and that someone needs not be a community member! That person's memories and skills will also be available to you for the duration, so if you wanted to learn something now's your chance! (Fortunately, you only become a duplicate of that person; the person you're imitating isn't touched at all by your own affliction.) At the end, you remember everything that happened, and your body reverts to how it was before the virus. You may not be a mile away nor are you guaranteed to have their shoes.
Anything else: Powers and abilities that are innate to that body (such as say, imitating Superman) will be able to be used. Also, your own personality and memories are not touched by the virus.

Extreme Body Modification

Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 1-4 days
Description: Some aspect of your body has changed! Your nose has grown four more sizes! You got six arms! Your eyes now see x-rays instead of normal light! Your nails are now claws! Your hair can grab things! You have wings! You can morph into a laser cannon! If it's a crime against nature, this virus can make it happen to you!
Anything else: No permanent damage will be directly caused by the virus.

Move Your Dead Bones

Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 2-4 days
Description: You are now an undead creature! You may end up being a zombie, vampire, ghost, or something rare. Your mind is not affected; you won't become evil or mindless or crazed or consumed with a need for vengeance or blood. But you still need to deal with the fact that you have been - temporarily - shunted off this mortal coil.
Anything else: A person's powers, abilities, etc are not affected by their undead state unless it specifically cannot be used by undead. This virus doesn't force a character to be evil, for example, and thus anti-evil powers may not hurt the character.

My Two Sides

Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 3-4 days
Description: Remember the old cartoon canard of a little angel and devil sitting on your shoulders, telling you what you should do? That's happening, only everyone can see and talk to them.
Anything else: It need not be two sides, nor is it strictly good and evil. You can have an Order side and a Chaos side, or a good side, an evil side, and a REALLY evil side.

A Little Taste Of Heaven

Virus or Event?: Event
Duration: Full five days, may be subjectively longer than that at player discretion
Description: You are transported to a wondrous, beautiful, peaceful place where you want for nothing and you need not fear anything. You do not hunger, thirst, feel pain, get tired, sleepy, or sick, you do not suffer injury, do not age, cannot die, and you are always clean, like you just had a bath. Now that you and other community members are here, what will you do? (Though beware, even though this place is the definition of benign time still passes outside and you are stuck with other community members...)
Anything else: Timescale is pliable. A mun may decide to have the pup live a century for every real day that passes, or five years, or a thousand. Go ahead and treat this like a Hyperbolic Time Chamber or something. At the end you are sent back home, and even though you are mortal again you still remember the time you spent in that place...

alldevouringabomination: Surprise! (OH GOD WHAT)

[personal profile] alldevouringabomination 2013-11-22 06:48 am (UTC)(link)
Noclip lol

Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 3-4 days
Description: You do not actually fall through the ground but you may as well since you find yourself going through everything else! Walls, furniture, people, vehicles, weapons - everything passes through as if you weren't even there. You can still consciously pick up objects and put them on, or in, your body, but for the purposes of getting in your way, matter doesn't matter anymore.
Anything else: Unless the thing in question isn't opaque, everything you are phasing through will be pitch black, as insides tend to be in total darkness.

Damn It, Brain!

Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 3-4 days
Description: One or more of your body parts has gained sapience - and a voice! Affected body parts will talk to anyone that can hear (i.e. you) and are capable of doing their own thing if it's normally within their power (a stomach can refuse to digest food, but it can't leave through your mouth, walk outside, and go on Broadway). Better hope you and your body part(s) get along!
Anything else: Affected body parts will never take any action that will lead to the death of their host - for example, a heart will not stop beating or kidneys will not stop filtering blood. This doesn't mean that they can't bluff, however.

Guile's Theme Goes with Everything

Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 1-2 days
Description: If you are doing something, doesn't really matter what it is, there's a chance that out of nowhere this music starts playing. It does not matter how important or fantastic whatever you're doing is; you could be jogging, making a sandwich, fighting aliens, casting a spell, riding a horse, or looking skyward, the song would still play.
Anything else: Warning: repeated usage of the song may lead to too much awesome building up in your character, and may cause urges to go home and be a family man person.

Nights of the Weresomething

Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 4 days
Description: You get bitten by a thing. Anything. Even if it's intangible (like say beauty or joy) or if it doesn't have teeth (such as a CD, an apple, or a toaster). Now at seemingly random intervals, you will transform into the very thing that bit you. Get nommed by a janitor? Hope you like overalls and brooms!
Anything else: You the mun may choose what to turn your pup into, how long the transformations last, and when they happen. Anything is fair game, so go wild!

Broadway Virus

[personal profile] former_endboss 2014-03-03 02:27 am (UTC)(link)
Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration:1-2 days.
Description: Some days, you can't help but feel frustrated or intense, or fluster, and just don't know what to say. This virus will help you say it with music, a big production number, thirty to a hundred dancers, and a horrifying realization that you just had a big musical number in front of the entire community. Maybe you'll run off and hide under a blanket-or maybe you can only express the anguish you feel with another song.
Anything else: Basically, it's "Once More with Feeling" but not an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Duration: 1-2
Description: Everyone has the urge to cook for other people, go shopping for curtains, and pick up the kids from school. (Oh, that random community member isn't your kid? Oh, well. Invite them for dinner anyway.)
Anything else: Not entirely sure.

Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 3-4
Description: Kindergarten AU! Everyone is five, in the same class, and learning how to share and what the alphabet is. At least one kid is likely to end up eating podge.
Anything else: Everyone is aged down physically and mentally and transported to a school. Think the High School, Hogwarts, and College viruses.
alldevouringabomination: Kirby fired up! (Let's do this!)

[personal profile] alldevouringabomination 2014-03-30 04:41 am (UTC)(link)
Rocket Powered

Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 3-4
Description: Your movements now have a LOT more force behind them, inhumanly so! You run as if you had little rockets strapped to your shoes (hence the name). Your punches are much faster and hit much harder - hope your hands are tough! When you jump, you jump VERY high. Even your sneezes are like little hurricanes. Any movement you make is exaggerated thus. Try flapping your arms!
Anything else: Feel free to handwave away or avoid injury.

Rose Tinted Glasses

Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 1-2
Description: For some reason, you see all things in their best possible light. Car crashed? You can collect the insurance money, yay! Indigestion? Just another excuse to see your buddy at the clinic. Sunburn? Bah, you didn't need that skin anyway!
Anything else: Reality itself is not altered by the virus, of course, so use your discretion


Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 3-4
Description: Suddenly, you have an unexplained compulsion to start collecting things, doesn't matter what it is. Coins? Leaves? Bungee cords? Oil rigs? Chemicals? Rubber ducks? Potholes? Whatever it is, you will just make it keep growing until the virus is over.
Anything else: The creator of this virus cannot be held responsible for any legal, environmental, bodily, and/or social harm that may result.

The Eyebeams Have It

Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 1-2
Description: You have BLASTING MUTANT-STYLE EYEBEAMS!!! You'd better figure out how to control it, or else you'd be better off in the desert or something. Or you could surprise your enemies.
Anything else: Power levels are variable, and can (and should) be adjusted for your own purposes.

Jumping the Shark

Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 3-4
Description: Something seemingly innocent happens, and then everything makes no sense! Your friends are not acting the way you expect them to. Someone is inexplicably getting all of the attention. Even the nature of your universe keeps changing for no reason. It's like the writers for your series have lost their minds.
Anything else: Actual jumping of sharks are optional.

Pixel Hunting

Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 1 or 2 days
Description: You know how in some of those old, crappy adventure games, you need a plot device that can only be accessed if you manage to click on literally one very small spot on the entire screen? Well, under this virus you can only find what you seek if you look in a very, very small and specific spot. Great for filler episodes!
Anything else: The thing in question doesn't have to be actually important to the plot.

Warp Whistle

Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 3 or 4 days
Description: Any and every time you play or whistle a certain tune (of the mun's choice), you get whisked away to a little crossroads with signs denoting some place on your world. Going past the sign teleports you to said place.
Anything else: Abuse this as much as you want. The places you can warp to are up to the mun.

Merchandising Craze

Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 1 or 2 days
Description: You see things bearing your (or an alter ego's) likeness everywhere - books, toys, posters, crop circles, cosplayers, cloud patterns, cards, paintings, even windows. Seems the world just can't get enough of you.
Anything else: No, you don't get any royalties.


Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 1 or 2 days
Description: No matter where you are going or what you are doing today, there will be signs and people who are trying to tell you how to do your job and use any talents and powers you may have. Even if you've done the thing a thousand times already.
Anything else: Unskippable, naturally.


Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 3 or 4 days
Description: You suddenly fall into an alternate universe! Then you'll keep falling into more alternate universes at regular intervals over the duration of the virus. Better make the most of it!
Anything else: What AU you enter is up to the mun.

Duck Fortress

Virus or Event?: Event
Duration: Full 5 days (objective), almost infinite (subjective)
Description: You and your group of fellow community members have embarked to some forsaken corner of a planet to build a mighty fortress. With only what you brought in the wagon, your mission is to make your fort a worthy dwelling, rich and powerful, where your deeds will be passed down in lore and song. It won't be easy, what with starvation, beasts, magma, the elements, and the odd horde of undead or goblin siege seeking to plunder what you've built, but if you make it through alive you get to keep anything you've learned and what you've claimed ownership of.
Anything else: For simplicity, pups do not get elderly while this event is going on; at the most they will reach about 23 years of age or equal for their species if they aren't older already, and then stop aging. All pups in this event return home alive and in one piece no matter what happens to them, though they must survive if they want loot and level-ups.

Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 3-4 days
Description: Everyone gets the ability to read minds. Differs from the "broadcast thoughts" virus because, instead, it works in person... and on non-comm NPCs. Derail your canons or just have relationship issues!
Anything else: Pretty sure all viruses are week-long now?

Virus or Event?: Event
Duration: 3-4 days
Description: Everyone is camping in the wilderness. Learn to pitch a tent! Go fishing! Set campfires! Try not to get your food supply eaten by bears...?
Anything else: Though the description implies it's a summer event, community magic can do this at any time.

Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: 2-3 days?
Description: Scavenger hunt! Taking advantage of everyone now having teleporters, characters have to go from world to world getting items from a random list of stuff. Have fun fighting over your transformation devices or being dumped in an unfamiliar world and told to steal the queen's crown!
Anything else: As for the list of items to get, I'm not sure whether "muns make it up as we go/lists can differ" or "everyone decides beforehand and mods put up a set list" is a better way to go. Probably the former.

Virus or Event?: Virus
Duration: Week?
Description: Road trip! Everyone is RNG'd into groups and has to follow a map. But the journey's the most important thing, right?
Anything else: Remember the Oregon Trail virus? Am I too old? Oh well.
