Saoire Holiday Event 2020 Sign Up Here!

Despite the chill of the night and the impending darkness of Cylus, Zi’da is a season filled with celebration and hope. The cool night air brings families together before a warm fire to tell stories. Various traditions have developed over time with emphasis on family including the lighting of special heritage candles, gathering in temples to offer thanks to patron Immortals, great feasts, and the occasional exchange of thoughtful gifts. Periods of time, or a single night, are spent honoring this idea of unity, friendship, and family.

Parents tuck their children into bed the night before these celebrations with promises of sweets and trinkets to play with come morning. It is this hope that has crafted some of the most enchanting stories about one beautiful, generous woman. These stories have multiplied over arcs with little agreement on how she looked and acted. It was the children that helped give her life. Their dreams portrayed an image of a young woman decorated with bright baubles and theatrical jewelry. She had glittering eyes that shined with life, and her face always carried a smile. She was capable of casting magic that appeared as glitter dust from her palms. Ponies, dancers, soldiers, and various other magical things would be made from this glitter dust, dancing around the scenes the young dreamers made.

Myths of Saoire’s creation has circulated throughout Idalos. One thing is for certain: She is a humanoid creation of Emea that is capable of entering the physical world for a short time each arc - but more and more people believe that she is, in fact, one of the Immortals. Sightings of her are spoken of during Zi’da. She is a thin woman with pale skin. Her hair is always neatly tucked up beneath a crown that changes with each appearance. Sometimes, her head is adorned with glistening orbs of varying colours or small parcels that she will take down to give to a small child. Other times, the bristles of the fir tree branches are decorated with red holly berries, vibrant fruits, and pinecones. Her arrival to an area is always accompanied by the smell of warmth, spices, and juniper. She is quick to arrive and quick to disappear, providing gifts and wisdom to those that she visits.

Once the celebrations come to an end, Saoire steals herself back to Emea to watch the mortals of Idalos - her children - with anticipation of her next visit. New stories are generated of her to share the following arc. This season provides a glimmer of light in a world often too overwhelmed with fear, war, and dismay.
Welcome to the fourth annual holiday event! The Staff of Standing Trials are overjoyed to bring you this event to celebrate the various traditions around the world and we'd like to recognise the work of Nymph, Rumour and Tio who have hosted previous events. This year, Munchkin and Pegasus are teaming up to organise this!

We invite players to sign up for our Secret Gifter event before December 8th. The Secret Gifter event involves an In Character "random act of kindness" towards another player. Your name will be placed into a lottery where you will be secretly paired up with another participant for you to give a gift to (your Secret Character). A different character will give you a gift. You will receive the name of your Secret Character no later than December 10th, and you will be asked to give a gift to the character that you are matched up with.

This year, we will be dividing players based on their choice of whether they wish to receive their gift Face to Face or Socially Distanced.
  • For those that are interested in receiving their gifts in-thread directly from their gifter, we encourage you to sign up for the Face to face Option. These threads are eligible for both skill points and knowledge, as long as the usual review requirements are met. Please note that distance is not an issue here, IC, there will be a starter post from one of us which puts the two PCs together in a current city. At the end of the thread, both pc's will be returned to where they were.
  • For those who would like Saoire to deliver their gift as a "random act of kindness", you may select the Socially Distanced Option where you will have a single post detailing the gift you are receiving. You may simply use that thread as a link for your acquisition of the item(s) or you may reply. These threads are not eligible for skill points, unless they meet the review requirements.


You may participate with as many characters as you wish - but it is important that we know who you play, so please fill the form in carefully. You can't gift yourself things!

PLEASE NOTE:
1. The person your PC is giving a gift to is not and can not be the person who you will receive a gift from.
2. The Option you choose (Face to Face or Socially Distant) will determine the nature of the thread where you receive your gift. If your Secret Character (ie: the pc you are giving a gift to) has chosen the "Face to Face" option - you will be in a thread with them. Therefore, please only sign up if you are willing to accept the wishes of the person you are giving a gift to and are prepared to be involved in a thread with them, if they choose that option. There is no time frame on when you must complete that thread, but normal rules re: posting in the current season or placeholders apply.

Gifts must be:
  • An item or group of items which you either pay for with WP, already own (in your CS) or craft yourself.
  • Other (with permission from Munchkin & Pegasus)


The timeline for this is as follows:
1. You sign up here before December 8th.
2. You receive a PM with your gift recipient (Secret Character) by December 10th.
3. You then PM (on site, please, not Discord) Pegasus & Munchkin with a description of your gift (and a link showing where you got it / made it - this might be just a link to your CS) by December 19th. Participants who do not provide their gift before this date will not be able to receive their own gift.
4. Munchkin & Pegasus (possibly with some help from our elves... the National Elf Service) - will post on the 20th December.
-- For the Face to Face Option - we will post a brief starter post putting the 2 pcs together. This will be machinated by Saoire, and when completed can be reviewed as normal.
-- For the Socially Distanced Option - we will post a single post per recipient which details your gift. If you choose to extend this appropriately, this can be reviewed as normal.

Questions? Ask them on our Saoire Holiday Event: Chat and Q&A thread!

For those who participate, you will receive two out of three medals upon completion of your portion.
1. An event medal
2. A "Socially Distanced Gifting" medal - for those who chose to receive their gifts in this option.
3. A "Face to Face Gifting" medal - for those who chose to receive their gifts in this option.

On the 20th, we will put up a thread for you to post in to claim these medals as threads complete.
