EDIT: MOAR New event missions at the bottom!!!
That's right, probies! It's that time of the year: It's Secret Santa!!!
We're putting your names in a hat and secretly giving them out to someone out there in Camp!
Here are the rules:
+ You must send the group a note titled "Secret Santa"
. In the body of the note, you must write the name of your character, their cohort and what they would like for Christmas. Please note that something ridiculous like a cellphone, a piano or anything else of that sort is NOT acceptable. Your request should be something that the character can either buy and/or make within Camp Jupiter or New Rome. Also, please voice your request IN CHARACTER.
+ Notes are required to be sent in by November 23rd at 24:00 EST
. This is to give the mods enough time to mix up and send out Secret Santa notes to each of you who sign up. If you send in your note late, you will not be able to participate.
+ You have until January 11th at 24:00 EST
to finish and submit your entries to the Event Folder.
+ If you have multiple characters, you may request to participate with them so long as you complete separate entries per character.
+ Your entry must consist of AT LEAST
one colored picture showing your character presenting the character you received their present. You may draw a comic for extra denarii. Should you do a comic in black and white, the picture presenting the gift MUST be in color, even if the rest of your comic is in black and white.
+ Your entry will not progress you up the ranks, but will instead earn you denarii. Put more effort and gain more denarii!
Winter Solstice EventIt’s probably because of Global Climate Change but this year is colder than normal! A cold front has hit camp and sprinkled it in snow. Don’t forget to bundle up this holiday season!
1 - Show off your winter wardrobe!
2 - Mariko has taken all of the worn or torn clothing and fabric and put it in a large basket in the Arts & Crafts Pavilion. Make use of the scraps to make a quilt! Mariko will be sure to help you in your efforts
3 - Taffy is making a special bunch of holiday-themed cookies. Be a doll & taste-test some of them, would you? They’re just ordinary cooking, not to worry!
4 - The citizens of New Rome are busily shoveling snow off the roads and walkways. Grab a shovel & some globes and give them a hand! But remember! Terminus will take your weapons from you before allowing passage into the city!
5 - Primus’ father, Austin, & Mr. Gunther need more wood for the forges. Go work those muscles & chop some wood.
6 - Just because it’s cold out is NOT an excuse to stay in bed! Lee (literally) drags you out of bed & makes you do some extra sword-thrusting exercises.
7 - Someone has used up all the tissues! How do you cope with a case of the sniffles with no tissues for your running nose?
8 - What’s that? You’ve caught a cold? Lee has the best remedy for cold! MORE TRAINING!
9 - Have you ever wondered why Primus has such long hair? Does he ever cut it? Why don’t you ask him? (If you can’t, postulate as to why he keeps his hair so long. Note Chiyo if you’d like to know how much Primus will tell.)
10 - Violet the Naiad is none too happy about this sudden cold front. She hasn’t been able to leave her lake because the air’s so cold outside. Lend her a big coat or jacket for the day and she’ll make you a piece of shell jewelry in exchange for your kindness!
11 - June has never seen snow before. Show her one of the best things you can do with it.
12 - Cam and Monica are making decorations. Give them a hand in the Arts & Crafts Pavilion.
13 - Vic loves this time of year. He loves it so much he got a big Christmas tree. Give him a hand in decorating it.
14 - Not everyone is too happy with the cold weather. What's one way to keep warm?
15 - The Venus kids thought it would be fun to spread a little holiday love. So, you know, Ty, Taffy and Vic are going a little overboard. Mistletoe is all over the place and by its laws you have to kiss. If you don’t, they will peg you with snowballs. So kiss, or not to kiss. That is the question!
16 - Gunther and Monica got a sleigh out from storage, cleaned it up and hooked up a few of the horses. Who wants to go for a ride?
17 - Not everyone celebrates Christmas. What does your kid celebrate instead?
18 - June has opened a delivery service with a few of the wind nymphs and some of her birds. Not all of us can go home for the holidays. Send letters and or gifts home or to a special person you have on your mind.
19 - Dickens and Cam are going around singing their little hearts out. GO and join them and rock out, no matter how bad the two are.
20 - Grab your skates, kids! It’s time to go to the frozen lake and skate! Make sure you avoid the unfrozen section. It's been cordoned off by a line of sparkly Christmas tape strapped to stakes in the ice.
21 - Elanor has been spending a lot of time at the temples. Rosemary wants to take her something to eat and convince her to take a break. Go with her.
22 - Alex needs help checking the heating system for the Stables. Why don’t you give him a hand?
