Summer Solstice 2015

Post by Aziel on Tue Jun 09, 2015 8:49 pm

Happy Summer Solstice!

The gods and goddesses have blessed this day with a cloudless sky and gentle breeze, perfect for adventures ahead on day one of our very own Solstice Festival. This festival is celebrated throughout the realm; the next week is one large, gleeful party for all!

As is tradition, Maquina has adorned Roa with glittering banners and flags. Colorful vendors have taken the market place by storm and mechanical floats are marched through crowds. Purchase a piece of art from the gathering of local artists, or perhaps test your skill in some of the carnival games. If these don't suit your fancy, you can always taste test the wine and appetizers provided by some of Maquina's most luxurious restaurants, or watch street performers swallow swords and spin fire. Each evening the sky lights up with a beautiful display of fireworks that blast all sorts of shapes and colors. For the next week, Roa is alive with enthusiasm!

Meanwhile, Vida celebrates the Summer Solstice their own way in Faesa. In place of any sort of neon glow, communities have come together and strung paper lanterns from tree to tree, paths covered in white flower petals and rice. Each guest is urged to plant one flower in the garden of Eternity on the city's edge for the solstice celebration, then join friends and family around a massive bonfire for grilled meat and spirits. Sing, dance, and feast until your heart's content every night for the week! Meet new friends under the light of lanterns and fireflies, bonding over summer love across the tranquil city.

Spoiler:


Welcome to the Summer Solstice Event! In character, the festivals will last for one week. However, this event will be open to new topics until July 10th. 20th  Have your beloved fictional children kick off summer with drink, food, games and dance. Partake in the newly opened lottery and be on the look out for an orange flame that I'll be moving on a weekly basis. If you spot it, you'll score five points for one of your accounts! Just message Aziel with the location of the flame to earn reward. I'll be sure to let everyone know when the fire is moved! We'll be using the honor system for this; so don't tell anybody if you know where the flame is! What you're hunting for looks like this:



I'm a cute little flame and I'm hiding somewhere on Polemos!


Slightly related, it's  very likely that I'll be disappearing from July 10 to July 20th for vacation. My apologies in advance for the delay in work at that time; it's actually why I'm opting to start the festival now, rather than the original date of the 21st. Thank you all for your understanding, and have fun at Polemos' first ever IC event!

Any questions, comments or concerns about the event can be privately messaged to the Aziel account or posted below. c:
