Upcoming [TBA] Vermella Sermon & Winterfeast Blood Moon (Peaceful, Public)

Discussion in 'Organised Events' started by HogoShi_Kitsune, Nov 1, 2017.

  1. HogoShi_Kitsune

    HogoShi_Kitsune Lord of Altera

    Character Name:
    Elfa Hansdotter
    Alt Name:
    James Fairborne, Sauran Khovr, Thyra, V
    Race:
    Halfling
    In-game Town/City:
    Falandraal
    House:
    Hansdotter
    Date: TBA
    Location: New Falandraal (travel instructions coming soon)

    In light of current events, Housekeeper Elfa Hansdotter has decided to hold a ceremony to Vermella in the coming days. This ceremony will promote awareness of the goddess among the populous and will act as an opening ceremony for the House of Vermella in New Falandraal. We shall pray to the god of red so that she may know her people still care for her.

    All potential and unknown housekeepers are requested to attend as this ceremony will allow you to meet with Elfa and work towards a common goal. You are also requested that you attend wearing your shawls. If you are not in possession of a shawl or you require a new one, please see Elfa at the event.

    This sermon will be open to all who wish to know more about Vermella or wish to pursue her teachings. Guests are invited to bring food, drink, and redstone or monetary donations in support of Vermella and Her Housekeepers. A coat check will be provided, but we ask that all weapons are left with your coats. If you would like to volunteer to help with this sermon, we ask that you speak to the halfling Elfa Hansdotter in Storm's Landing, which she will be frequenting for the near future.

    OOC:

    I have listed this event as peaceful because that is how I would like it to play out. However, should someone wish to bring violence, all I ask is that it make sense. A copy of this letter will be posted major cities, so don't be surprised if you see that in-game.

    Please also note that I am holding this event as Elfa because recent events have forced my hand. Specifically, the recent campaign where there is, as she feels, a real possibility that the gods may be in danger, something that terrifies her. With her becoming active, she is now the longest-active Housekeeper for Vermella. I understand that a few new players have cropped up that have an interest in this role, and I feel it is best that I hold this event to ensure that we are in fact on the same page with how this should be run. I am not here to replace you. In fact, I am very excited to see that there is an interest in Vermella besides just from me. This event should hopefully provide formal IC training to any other Housekeepers out there, including how to worship, Her holy artifacts, Her history, and so forth.

    Edit: It has come to my attention that there is a large discrepancy between actual Vermella lore and what has been posted. As such, there is a large compilation effort in the works now. After the event has concluded, I will be pushing the "unreleased" lore to the forums. This lore will reflect what I will be saying in the event and will provide a more complete story about the myths and legends of the god as well as the nature of certain practices. The difference is I can discuss multiple OOC things regarding worship and similar topics that cannot be discussed ICly, such as the fact that Vermellan worship should NOT be Christianized. It will also provide a list of important items and phrases and their significance.

    Mentors and Staff:

    This event will also serve the purpose of counting towards Elfa's sermon count for becoming recognized by Vermella (I forget the word for this now). In the past when Elfa was active, this system was not in place, so she does not have this formal recognition in the new system (unless it is possible for her to be grandfathered in?)

    Direct Invitations:

    Ashna Khovr (as Elfa knows her) Solus
    Nireth Alec and fam Lady Alec
    Therry Hansdotter Exclaimer
    Dylan Hansdotter (@me)
    Tzemik Michcat
    Linden RagingLunacy

    Elfa: "My friends keep leaving me..."

    Indirect Invitations:
    (People of interest that Elfa doesn't know about but who may be interested in attending. Just tagging you here to make sure you see it.)

    all worship the same god. each have their own views. lets not get our OOC pants in a twist because we worship differently.
    take it up with the vermella boon'd ICly with a cool crusade or murder or like anything but being passive aggressive in an 'OOC' section of an event post.

    I don't believe you can be grandfathered into the blessed simply for being the oldest worshipper. The reason being is that you need to be active as a worshipper, creating events and such and doing things according to how the god wants it. You can host fifteen events and still not be blessed, as well.

    You know Hogo specifically said in the post that this isn't an attempt to take it over, right? "I am not here to replace you." It's bolded, even.

    100% agree. For clarification, the events which have forced my hand are in fact the recent campaign - the weapon that kills gods, general mistrust of the pantheon, IC fear that Vermella will be killed by haphazard players, and so forth.

    What you're seeing there is me stating OOCly that I am looking at becoming an active worshipper and I would like the staff/mentors to see about recognizing this as a step towards that goal.

    Those interested in attending:

    Please state what times you'd be available. I'm thinking of holding this event this coming weekend either on Saturday or Sunday and probably in the early afternoon, though the exact time will depend on what you say. I will try my best to find a time that fits well with all in attendance. Keep in mind that "early afternoon" is my personal preference, though late afternoon or evening times are acceptable as well, though we should try to avoid the "dinner block".

    Sunday I'll probably not be able to attend any later than 4pm est due to early shift next week.

    Saturday is a bit more generous but I might be occupied with a different event for 1-2 hours around 2pm est unless no other time is possible.

    I'm going to suggest that we aim towards the 2nd/3rd of December. This puts us after Thanksgiving and before anything major in December. Sorry for this weekend coming and going - saying I was busy would be such a huge understatement that *insert even larger comparison here*.

    Edit: The third would, coincidentally, put us in line with the full moon in December, and thus time for the monthly Blood Moon. I'll go ahead and snag both events (since it gives us a good way to evenly pace the future blood moon events, even if this one's a little close to the last one).
