"To do anything to a high level, it
has to be total obsession."


Greetings Sykans!

First things first... this season we are all going to catch jungle fever!

That means each and every one of you are going to develop a fever that manifests as an obsession. The obsession will be a singular almost feverish drive in your life for the duration of the season. This isn't a metaphorical thing. Each and every one of you will come down with these symptoms so its important you firm up what kind of jungle fever you are catching. You are welcome to come up with your own obsession or you can roll from this random chart.

❖ Decide on an obsession or roll randomly (in Discord its !roll 1d21)!

❖ Once your obsession is determined, post below. If you'd like anyone to assist you in your obsession, the below post is a good place to advertise it.

❖ Start weaving your obsession into your threads.

❖ Encourage each other and the obsessions blooming between you.

❖ Explore the light side and dark side of your obsession in a very concentrated and feverish way.

Image
"When passion meets inspiration, an obsession is born.”



Here's a few suggestions or a list to randomly roll from:

  1. Thinking a specific type of animal is stalking you. (ie monkeys, chickens, etc)
  2. Develop a bad habit obsessively (swearing, nose picking, etc)
  3. Fear of being contaminated by illness or dirt (clean freak).
  4. Thoughts of losing control and harming yourself or others.
  5. Fear of losing or not having things you might need
  6. Collecting/acquiring/hording something (ie food, artifacts, etc)
  7. Intrusive sexually explicit or violent thoughts and images.
  8. Learning a new skill or magic.
  9. Order and symmetry: the idea that everything must line up “just right”
  10. Understanding everyone's past/history/drive/motivation.
  11. Focus on religious or moral ideas/ideals.
  12. Focus on the afterlife or past lives.
  13. Unwillingness to sleep afraid of missing out on something.
  14. Gaining a spouse/child.
  15. Learning Secrets.
  16. Getting high (drugs/alcohol/frog licking)
  17. Become convinced you are cursed.
  18. Fixate on another PC/NPC.
  19. Become obsessed with playing practical jokes.
  20. Develop incredible paranoia of persons/places/things.
  21. Have a phobia develop and obsess about it.

The heat is going to level off for the summer and Syka will experience long lazy days with humid heat but comfortably mild heat. It will not be as catastrophic as the spring heat was, but clothing will definitely be optional along the coast where skin doesn't need protecting. The jungle will be unbearable with bugs and a long-sleeve situation only. But the shores of the settlement will offer cooling breezes. The night will be warm and cozy, a fire will be a lovely idea and not unwelcome though unnecessary for warmth. There will be an abundance of food in the fruiting trees and schools of fish offshore. There will also be a migration of crabs and the citizens of Syka will discover the joys of lobster and how abundant they are.

Image


❖ A windstorm of epic proportions hits Syka. It has 80 mph sustained winds. This would be equivalent to a smaller hurricane. (30th)
❖ A plague of fire ants invades the settlement early on in the season and becomes an increasing problem. (15th onward)
❖ The World Gate Opens twice mysteriously. (23rd, 61st, 87th)
❖ A large white shark nicknamed Big Mamma by Captain James Chaliva who swears its a female starts harassing the shallows surprisingly close to shore. (Entire Season)
❖ Settlement denizens discover a new fruit tree which looks like a small tree - grown pineapple that tastes like a pear. Once discovered, they are found all over the settlement as if just noticed or just grown. Wild djed is suspected. (40th onward)
❖ A night raid by a hostile svefra pod invades the settlement and tries to kill or rob anyone living on the shore or having built next to the shore. (54th)
❖ An unusual low tide during this season's full moons cause the sea bed to be revealed and ruins to be accessible. (Entire Season)

Image



❖ Be involved in some sort of beach roleplay - a bonfire at night or a pit roast or even some fishing expeditions.

❖ Become involved in a community event or activity such as building something the community needs or repairing or upgrading something the community already has.

❖ Discover one of Syka's Secrets (see me for ideas).

❖ Help a neighbor with a project.

❖ Master a skill and have a conversation with a god associated with that skill (D.A.T.S).

❖ Tell someone a story that somehow involves the obsession.

❖ Write at least 15,000 words and keep track of them in your singular post below and I will give you opportunities to pick quest items from the weekly challenges that have been issued in the past year. The more you write the bigger the selection I'll give you. If you write up to 25,000 or more... I will give you a choice of ANY of the past quest items.

Image



I'm always willing to run personal story line focuses for anyone who joins Syka for the season. People get such few opportunities to interact with their actual story lines in generic calendar situations within various domains, so in Syka I'd like to change that. I will be willing to run the following:

  • Personal Quests
  • Gnosis Threads
  • Flashbacks & Future Foretellings
  • Training Threads

Just let me know what I can help you out with. Syka might be small but we have had some really incredible storylines here in the past.

Happy Threading!

Sophia's jungle fever for Summer is:

Collecting/acquiring/hording something - beach glass.

So basically she's going to spend the season obsessively combing the beach and asking everyone she can find if they have any, and then hoard it all like a dragon on a gold pile. Fun.
NOTE: During the Fall Sophia is a Dhani, specifically a golden eyelash viper. See here for more detailed info.
