The Story Thus Far
The initial exploration of the area around Aurnion went about as well as could be expected, outside of a few minor massive monster attacks that were probably just a total fluke anyways. With a relatively safe location secured, the entrepreneurs and adventurers of Elibe are looking deeper into the island, desperate to find something a little more exciting - or valuable - waiting within the dark depths of the island's forest, or at least find some of the human villages supposedly located somewhere in this damn place to get trading started.
But with opportunity comes adversity, and more than a few of those brave enough to venture far from Aurnion have reported feeling as though they were watched, and some even claim to have seen ghosts; strange figures, human or otherwise, that flit through the foliage always just out of sight. Rumors grow that someone or something calls the island home, and while a few of the faint of heart have hightailed it back to Elibe, those remaining are on the hunt for the truth - or at least a little fame and fortune.
With the initial island discovery and exploration wrapping up, the actual event will be starting up soon, offering players answers about the mysterious new island. Unlike the prologue bits so far, this will be a touch more structured, but will in turn offer rewards for people who actually stick with it - let's just say you'll get a shot at fame and maybe a chance to be the first to get your hands on some fancy new stuff. If you're interested, you'll sign up for one of two groups:
Pick Group A if...
- You want to play one of your existing characters (ex. I could pick Nayru, Elesia, Lidith... etc)
- You want to experience strange new wonders from the perspective of someone from Elibe
- You are willing to commit to posting at least once every 1-2 days as topic speed permits
Pick Group B if...
- You want to create and play a new character from a race completely alien to Elibe
- You are willing to put in some extra effort to work with me and group A members to make for a memorable event
- You are willing to commit to post daily as topic speed permits
- You are willing to keep a secret for a few days
so you can show off afterwards
Once you've decided on which group you're interested in (you can sign up for both if you want), post here with the name of the character(s) you want to participate with (if group A), or just show some level of interest for group B.
Signups for group A will end in 48 hours; signups for group B will end in 24 hours. Event topic slots are separate from your normal three - feel free to sign up even if you're already capped.
Please note that it's okay to sign up even if your character is 'weak' - you aint gonna get modkilled for looking at anything funny.
(Aeos Gar and Remus (on any account of their choice) are automatically accepted for group A if they so choose, on account of contributing immensely to the pre-event.)
