Sunny Island
Hello and welcome to Sunny Island! We're a little island in the middle of nowhere, but for that we have a fairly large and diverse population. They say that the island was abandoned long ago, but no one quite understands why--it is full of natural resources. The initial settlers turned the deserted place into a number one tourist attraction! But, um, we don't quite have that distinction anymore... why don't you join us in helping to put this island back on its feet again?

It's currently Year Two of Spring.
It's a little bit cold for the season; a few particularly obstinate piles of snow and slush are left on the ground, even; but that hasn't stopped life from returning to the island. Flowers push their way through the ground, birds sing boisterously, and farmers once again set to the task of growing crops. There is no snow expected for the season, but there will be a lot of rain, so take care and keep dry!

All right. It's summertime officially, but I want to ask you about festivals.

Most of the festivals in the game gauge your progress; they reward you for doing well in various in-game activities. These don't really translate very well to a roleplay forum. The summer activities, for instance, are:

-Chicken Festival
-Mining Festival
-Horse Festival
-Fireworks
-Crop Judging

The chicken, horse, and crop festivals are only really fun for ranchers, and I'm not sure how much fun it would be roleplaying everyone mining and then arbitrarily declaring one the winner. The Fireworks festival can stay, but that's one festival out of five. We'll certainly need more.

The Mineral Town events don't offer a lot for summer, either.

So, I think we should come up with some festivals of our own. While we're at it, we could come up with some for the other three seasons. Just throw any idea out there that you have! The only requirement is that it offer some fun opportunity to RP.

I'll start out by suggesting a beach-centric festival. A general summery thing, with maybe a competition but with more emphasis on swimming, eating watermelon, and having a good time.

What can you guys come up with?

Well for the most part if it was a festival like one of those you could always take all the particpants and simply let a random number generator determine the winner. As for festivals Back to Natures summer had the tomato festival which I don't know if you would want to do it could work since it was bascially a food fight.

That's... kind of what I meant when I said "arbitrarily picking a winner." tongue.gif And like I said, it's not something I want to do because it's not really satisfying. Festivals in RP should be more about character interaction and less about competing to see if an RNG spits out your entry number.

Oooh, that could be a lot of fun. XD I like that a lot, but let's see if anyone else has any ideas before I finalize a list for the season.

....Ooooor not. XD Well, I picked out this season's events. The beach festival starts tomorrow, so get ready!

I'll leave the topic open, because we still need some suggestions for the other three seasons. =3 Any ideas, anyone?

Valentines Day for Winter maybe? It could be on the 14th. Oh, and for Fall we could have like a harvest festival where everyone brings a dish and they could have a banquet for everyone, and a cake contest. fangs.gif cute.gif ecstatic.gif idea.gif
