It's Winter time! December is coming up quickly, and with the snow and cold upon us, Wathais is gearing up for its Winter Event: Granny's Candy Safari!
An invitation from a mysterious figure named Granny Smith has been extended to many supernaturals throughout the city, to join her for a truly fantastic holiday feast! But, the feast is only the beginning! Granny insists that you save room for dessert: the main event, Granny's Candy Safari, a sweet world of desserts and candy that her honored guests must traverse! Granny won't take no for an answer, she likes to give her guests all they can eat and more!
The Halloween RPG adventure event was loads of fun, and everyone really seemed to enjoy the overall madness of the maze. It was also extremely intense, so for the Winter Event, we'd like to present something a bit more laid back, to really give everyone an easier, casual (but still super fun!) break from the intensity of the last event. It will be leisurely paced for both active members who post a lot, as well as not-as-active members who have busier holiday schedules. The only fast-paced-encouraged areas are the boss fights, where at least daily posting is encouraged, but not mandatory. How This Event Works:Posting
: This is a Role-Playing event, and will be hosted on the Wathais Forum
. However, as we know many members will be busy for the holiday season, daily posting is not required to take part in the event. All members are free to participate at their own leisure.
Characters will proceed through various different areas of the Candy Safari, enjoying environments that can be interactive, tricky, and free-for-all yummy fun - including fantastically tasty monsters to fight (or eat)!
There will also be fun little "prizes" for each section, a few tasty gifts from Granny Smith herself! "Granny Posts" will be put up probably once a day, to give players results to monster battles and also any happenings in the walkthrough areas for those who are regularly posting.
*For the sake of pacing, we ask that those who do post daily to the event limit themselves to no more than two posts per day, to keep things from becoming too hectic. One max daily for Boss areas.
*Only one character per player for this event, so for those members who have multiple OCs in the mix, choose wisely!Areas
: There will be walkthrough areas of extravagant dessert environments to enjoy (or maybe the environment will enjoy you!) and boss monsters after each to battle in order to move on. There will be about 4 days allotted time to walkthrough areas for posting before the group moves on to the boss. Further instructions will be detailed when the event is released.
Don't worry if you're busy and unable to post often, this event is entirely casual. If you need to take a break, characters can be placed on a Hiatus - no monsters will attack hiatus characters. Are you extremely busy but still don't want to miss out on the fun? No worries, we can work something out, maybe do a solo adventure for stragglers.
*Note: This event is not meant to kill characters, and probably won't harm them all that much either. Everything is made of sweets, after all, so your character's injuries are completely up to you, although it's hard to become mortally wounded from something like being eaten by a marshmallow... Monsters are epic and scary looking, but then again, they're also mighty tasty!
There may only be a few "sticky situations" to escape from at most, and how creatively you can escape will make things all the more interesting.Event Dates:
The main event begins on Dec 1st
, although a pre-event warm-up will be open starting on Nov 24th
, where characters can arrive at Granny's to enjoy a casual feast and chat until the main event starts. The pre-event is just to allow characters to mingle and interact among themselves, and is entirely optional.
For new and aspiring members, there's still time to get your character references in! Late-comers are always welcome! For more information on how to become a member, check out the The Rules and How to Join
