IC News travels slowly in Mizahar. Fortunately there is a constant stream of news from around campfires, from caravan to caravan and from merchants to merchants. Within this forum lies the best of the best of this talk. Also, within this forum, OOC news from the staff and players can be found. This forum requires all posts to be 'approved' by a Founder before they are displayed. So if you post within, be patient. Your post did display - it simply will not show to everyone until approved as actual 'news'. Please keep all Introductions, Status Updates, and various other discussions in their appropriate forums and leave this area for game news!

Multiple Theme Challenge This Week (4/4 - 4/11)

Challenge Time!

This is going to be a week-long challenge starting today and ending next Monday at 9 pm PST. You get rewarded via the number of threads you write. Each thread needs to be 2.5K long at least. Group threads are encouraged (and will count if each of you put at least 2.5K into them) and writing threads that mix the themes are allowed.

What are the themes? There was some debate in chat and it was decided that this challenge would be a multi-themed situation. First and foremost, for everyone, you can write about learning a new skill. A new skill is a skill your PC doesn't know at all or a skill your PC has 5xp or under in. That's pretty straight forward. However, if you want to develop a new skill in thread, that's acceptable too. Someone will be developing a magic that got pre-approved to be developed in game already. If you'd like to do something similar, step forward and talk to me.

Secondly, since so many people in Syka have been cursed this season, Sykans can explore their curses... and other people's curess. They can try to figure out what's behind the curse or just seek some therapy for how the said curse has been affecting them. You can even investigate the curses if you are outside of the situation.

You will get a prize for every 2.5K thread you write. There are no limits to the amount of threads you write. I will try to have a unique list of new prizes and some coupons in case you want something already in the game.

As always, sign up below. Give us some idea of what you want to do in this challenge. Also, keep a thread list below with a brief synopsis of what the thread is about and the word count. Group threads can be listed on multiple sign ups. :)

Enjoy!

Gossamer

Still a couple of days left, so throwing in a ring for Adal as well.

Keeping it simple:

If anyone wants to pound out a curse discussion tomorrow in the am, let me know and I'll incorporate that as well. :)

And there's no more lies. In the darkness there's light.
And nobody cries. There's only butterflies..."
