Posters are spread around Thorne, Storm’s Landing, and wherever-else it is permitted to be slapped up.


As winter begins to intensify, it has become a recent tradition amongst Asrakosian refugees and caravaneers to stave off the chills with an old-fashioned celebration! With war and strife everywhere, the yearly winter festival is certainly a welcome reprieve to many effected.

In two weeks, come to Weidorf to enjoy a feast of traditional Asrakosian fare, mistletoe mischief, dancing, saunas, and games such as:

- Yam-racing! (rolling yams down a hill to see which one gets down to the bottom first)


- Snowball fights!

- Hot cocoa drinking contest! (Included in feast)

- Boxing!


- Cook-offs (Specifically, who can cook the best venison this year? This will be included in the feast)

- Chariot races in the snow!





After which, a prayer to Shalherana for a good spring and a prayer to Ignis for healthy hearths will follow.

We encourage you to bring your own food and drink, but please be ready to share!

No troublemakers allowed!
All queries and volunteers should go to the hosts of the event; Saffire Harcourt and Daniel Cristianos. We are located at Thorne!

Vale (bye) and have a nice winter~!

OOC:

This event will be held on December 17th, 4 PM EST (3 PM CST).

Any violence planned should be taken up with Angel and I for approval/disapproval. It’s an event meant for fun shenanigans so I’d rather people keep that somewhere else.


I will also need help with games volunteers IRPly and OOC volunteers for decorating Thorne into a winter-wonderland. I might see if I can get the place to be snowy for that event by way of WE. The event is absolutely, non-negotiably PEACEFUL. The boxing event will result in only minor injuries.

Archbishop gave me the go-ahead so refer to him.
I don’t know who would do violence in a fun festival anyways tbh- there’s no reason to.

“Snowballs are my trigger! Massacre everyone!!”
Um!
One cannot hold a peaceful event in a violent region afaik
I'd assume ongoing war is a good reason to crash your enemies' party, violently. Peaceful events can't really be held in violent regions, there's a saying or something that goes "if you want peaceful events don't make your region violent"

But this isn’t held by anyone on the opposing sides. It’s held by Saffire and Daniel; who are not involved in the war.

He has permission to hold the event and it will be peaceful. We did have a ball and that was peaceful.

Uhhh no, I say violent
Events override region rules, afaik.

Regardless, no more talk of this, guys. I’m trying to promote a fun, peaceful event in which violence will not enhance the experience we intend for people who are going.
This thread isfor people who want to volunteer or affirmations of whether or not they’re going.

That looks like fun however I am unsure how to add people to a region so unless someone tells me how to do so I think I will wait on what Blorb thinks on the idea

To add someone to a region, I believe the command is listed if you do /region

Bump. We have two game-stands for anyone who wants to use them for their own (preapproved game).

The chariot race track will be the road to Saffire’s home to Thorne, and back.


Snow donations for OOC decoration is welcome.
