    Rezna’s Gap, a rather large city located a few miles inland from the coastal ocean stretch of Voltlund. Unique in it’s layout, the gap is situated in two equally sized parts separated by a large river way that gives the location it’s name, Rezna’s Tail. Even within the landlocked areas, smaller inlets snake across the town, allowing Residents use small boats to transit between the sides, with bridges ways with building covering transit between smaller waterways.

    Each year as winter hit’s it peak, the mountain rivers that feed the great Rezna’s Tail causeway freeze over, leaving the town’s water supply dry, while this might seem inconvenient, the residents use this newly open space to host a great event. The highlight of the festivities is the empty waterway, filled with large stones is turned into an obstacle course, pitting challengers to out race, out climb and out balance each other for prizes.

    Rezna’s Gap Festival Cancelled!

    Participants from all over have traveled for this event, some with hopes of competing in tests of physical strenght, speed or agility, others to watch the contestants, and finally many just come to visit the festival grounds, partaking in food, games and a warm gathering.

    But not this year, this year the weather has taken an unusual turn, in place of an empty waterway and snow, a week’s long storm has held fast over the city in it’s place.
    The early travelers have turned up to quiet a shock, Staff running the event is doing their best to greet those showing up, offering towels and apologizes.

    The Arrival:

    Draw or write about your character showing up in Voltlund to the bad news, and bad weather. Characters may submit only one entry for this prompt.

    • Reward: 10 Festival Tickers, 500 Kouneen, and a random prepared food item for your trouble.

    Inside the meeting hall, guest mill about, watching as the rain continue to pour down, lightening brightening the outside clouds once in awhile. Some contestants sullenly take turn playing a few board games, others help themselves to provided snacks while they last, one very excitable Popokee seems to be having a much more enjoyable time.
    Approaching random strangers, he grins as he speaks up “I have a great idea for a game!” “Oh let’s play hide and seek!”
    He’s not gaining much traction from the group.

    Hide and Seek:

    Tatter wants to play hide and seek. The rules are simple, players must go hide, this can be anywhere in the meeting hall, the contestant housing, or anywhere along the street that holds both locations.

    Draw or write about your character either finding the perfect hiding spot, or finding another player’s character hiding.

    • Reward: One Festival Ticket.

    Characters who’s Homeland is Voltlund Coast will be given a 30% chance to earn 1TP on any submission for this event.

     

    DAY TWO:

    The next morning breaks with brighter spirits, but not so much brighter skies, while the rain has let up a little, the grey still looms.
    With an uncertain weekend, and necessities covered, participants, spectators and even locals are out taking advantage of the break in the storm.

    You can choose how you spend your time, however you may only pick one path. Your choice will affect the last prompts for the event, so pick wisely!

    Path One – Head to the beach:

    A brisk walk from town, and down the coast leads to a beach made of up stunning multi hued stones, all smooth and glossy. It’s breathtaking, or it would be if not for the debris that have washed up from the high tides and rough storms.
    A lone Popokee scuffles along, pulling pieces of trash much larger than herself from the edge of the water, and into piles up the dunes.
    Her name is Mamatio, a recent local and a gentle spirit. It looks like she could use your help cleaning up.

    Draw or write about your character helping clean up the beach with Mamatio.

    • Rewards: 100 Kouneen, 50% chance of festival ticket.

     

    Path One – Mamatio’s Cave:

    The afternoon turns late, but with your aid the beach looks much cleaner. After surveying her work, Mamatio gives a nod, proudly directing you toward the cliffs just beyond the dunes. She shows you a small opening, barely noticeable for anyone not looking. Inside it opens up to a massive cave system, the floor settled with an inch or two of still waters. Mamatio gives you a warm grin, nodding again.

    This is an open ended prompt, you decide what happens in the cave, what Mamatio’s been keeping secret here and how your exploration goes on your return.

    • Rewards: 100 Kouneen, one ‘Path One’ event item roll.
    • Secret prompts found:
    • 1/3 – Touch/Steal/Move Crystals – Reward Themed Location.
    • 2/3 – Draw Bones – Reward Yens Familiar.
    • 3/3 – Share a treat with Mamatio – Reward Blue Azoth

    ________________________________________________

    Path Two – Visit the Town:

    Sticking around town, the crowds seem to be congregating around the festival grounds, a few rides are in motion, as well as a selection of booths are selling food, trinkets and offering games of chance. You spend some time wondering, taking in the full experience.
    The small, but charming event is suddenly broken up by a shout, a young man running a large game booth yells out. “Stop thief!” Crowds freeze, parking as a four legged guest, in heavy hooded cloak pushes through and out of the grounds in a rush. Some folks give chase, others mingle trying to get get more details.
    A large bag of earnings has been nicked, no one got a good look at the thief, but it is known the criminal has a long tail covered in reeds.

    Draw or write about your character looking for clues, or trying to track down the thief.

    • Rewards: 100 Kouneen, 50% chance of festival ticket.

     

    Path Two – The Warehouse:

    Tracks are traced, and witnesses questioned, it looks like everyone’s sleuthing has lead to a possible escape path, and there’s very few places along it. Quick to check it out, you find yourself at the end of a pier that dead ends at a large warehouse, that seems to be fairly unused. As you lean in to the darkened door way, an unhooded face ducks out of view, the thief! It looks like this trouble maker is Lurk..

    This is an open ended prompt, you decide what happens in the warehouse, what you find and how you settle the theft with Lurk.

    • Rewards: 100 Kouneen, one ‘Path Two’ event item roll.
    • Secret prompts found:
    • 1/3 – Clue: What exactly was this place for?
    • 2/3 –
    • 3/3 – Use some crates – Reward Blue Azoth

     

    THE LAST DAY:

    The final day of the festival starts on another gloomy note, the rain has returned and with it any hopes of the challenge starting this year. Even with this outcome, it seems everyone is set on enjoying the last of the event, rain or not.

    Draw or write about your character out enjoying the festival offerings; carnival games, fair foods, rides and activities, just remember it’s a bit damp still!

    • Rewards: 1 Festival ticket, 50% of an extra Festival Ticket, and 30% chance of random item from either path’s event items.

    It was bad enough there was a horrid rainstorm outside, practically trapping them all inside the Meeting Hall. Denali didn’t mind the rain, no, it was more the threat of flooding that made her a little nervous. She couldn’t stand the though of the overflowing canals outside, the deep water churning and forming into a chaotic river. She caught herself and took some deep breaths. It would be fine, the Hall was well built. One of the other, overjoyed contestants proposed an active game to pass the time: Hide and Seek. Hoping it would help her shake off some nerves, Denali decided to join in. Wandering down the halls in search of a hiding spot, she couldn’t help but get an unsettling sense that there was something more going on here.

    Ivy was bickering on and on about how they should have just stayed at home , where it was dry and warm since they had seen the storm coming. But Squix more than ever felt like he should go. If not to actually participate, then at least to help out if needed.
    So he spent a good part of their arrival after getting dry himself with supplying other travelers with fresh dry towels.

    He did not travel to the coast in the middle of a storm to play inside with strangers. Haccken eyed the pile of board games with disdain.

    It didn’t take long after arriving for Aegir to threaten all of the boardgames with his soaking wet fur, barely accepting the towel tossed on him before leaping to something a lot more fun than being sad about the rain.

    The Arrival

    Heirin pressed up against the window, staring at the Closed sign in dismay. They couldn’t just cancel the festival! What’s a little rain? Thunder boomed behind him, and he yelped, hauling tail through the door of the meeting hall. There were lights on inside. It looked like other people were still trying to have some kind of festival, at least.

    They kinda doubted that Denali really “fell” for their disguise as “fine art”. But if she had better things to worry about, they wouldnt bother her. Fine art has never bothered anybody.

    A sound of distress caught Squix attention. Between all the debris, previously covered by an old sheet was a seagull entangled in a piece of rope.
    “Don’t worry, little one. Stay calm. im here to help.” he wispered under his breath whilst carefully untangeling the bird.

    Clearly, this was the world’s best hiding spot, and nobody would think to consider that the matching Kirunhound statue was made of stone rather than garishly painted and, most curiously, breathing.

    Hayhurst and Korlund arrive in Rezna’s Gap. Korlund happily accepted his offer to let him ride on his back…yes it looked ridiculous but it saved him from the mud…but then, one swing of hayhursts muddy tail got some on Korlund…You’d think the world was ending! An eye roll from Hayhurst is earned after his outburst. That poor surprised citizen.

    The rain slowed enough that it was deemed acceptable to go back outside again. Denali was more than happy to get out of the eerie halls of the Meeting Hall. Some of the contestants grouped up and began to head off to the beach. The thought of seeing the ocean in this derelect state was a rather less than pleasing thought. Stepping outside to stretch her legs, Denali decided to head into the town.
