Ahh the holidays. The traffic. The noise. The madness. The silliness of the entire thing, as beings, with little money, and even lesser patience try to prove to one another just how generous they are, or how much they are into the holidays. Or perhaps they have too much money and power, trying to prove to others how magnanimous they were for the holidays. Or how much they hate them, depending on the point of view. But this year, things are different. It has been a ritual, nay tradition, that the grand house would hold a Holiday Party that was to beat all other parties being thrown. Beings from all over, would hope and pray that they would have the chance to attend the gala affair. Powerful beings, different creatures, people who seemed quite ordinary and plain, could find themselves invited. There didn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to the invitations. But the stories of the day after were all ways the same. Of a fantastic party, with more food than a being could dream of. And the gathering was fantastic. All would seem to remember having the time of their lives, and enjoying quite a bit of food and drink, rubbing elbows with the most powerful of beings and wondrous music. And their mysterious guest, who no one ever seemed to remember seeing in person, but all had fond memories of. This year, the host has promised something different. Indeed, they have promised a party to surpass all others this year. With whispers of grand food and drink to whet the appetite, and a promise of even more. And you have been invited. It was all rather shocking, to say the least. You were busily attending to whatever business you would normally be handling, when you saw it. And gold gilded envelope. perhaps? A simple card? Or maybe a scroll? A sheet of flimsplast? A computer text, a verbal recording, or even a chunk of rock, with words carved upon it, the method dosen't really matter. What DOES matter is that you received an invite. Addressed to you directly. How it got there, you have no clue. But there is is. Once you examine the invitation, it seems straightforward enough. "Welcome (You're name ). "We are happy to welcome you to the most anticipated event of the year. As always, we will attempt to whet both your appetite and more, with the most tempting of food and drink. And perhaps a bit more." "If you accept the invitation, then please leave the appropriate lowest denomination of the coinage of your area, on top of the invitation. Thats it. Be assured, we will be notified of your intent to join us, and will make all the necessary travel arrangements and preparations." "You look forward to hearing from you." <o> ==== Greetings all!!! This is looking to bring back the Holiday Games of old. As we all know, as the holidays get closer, especially after Thanksgiving, the boards tend to slow down, as Darth RL gets in the way. People have shopping, travelling, and other things to attend to, in the madness of Christmas, and the end of the year offering. So I am offering a lighthearted and hopefully intriguing RPG for those of us who will still hover around the boards during this most crazy time of the year. Be assured, there will be more to do than just drinking the wonderful food and drink, and dancing. But, you'll find out more about that, a bit later. As this is an RPG, I do have a Character Sheet, and it is as follows: +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Character Sheet: Name: Sex: Race: Age: General Description: (Eye, hair, skin, fur, etc...) A Brief bio.: Time-frame and Universe: (See below) ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Now, about your character. You can be whomever you wish to be. If you wish to play yourself, or your avatar, so be it. If you wish to draw up a character, thats fine. You can be human, or any race from the Star Wars Universe. Or the ADnD universe. Or the Harry Potter Universe. Or... you get my drift. You can also be from anytime period, except for far flung future. But then be prepared to have things respond to you, as appropriate. No GOD-MODDING will be tolerated. (Just have to say it.) ALL CHARACTER SHEETS ARE TO BE PM'D TO ME FOR APPROVAL BEFORE POSTING!!! This is a bit of an experiment, but now is a good time to see how it may work. Think of it as a bit of a crossover. Ok...its one HECK of a crossover. Anyway, the entire point is to have some fun, and perhaps a bit of mystery on the side. See you on the other side. -=-=-= P.S. As I have started a new job, and I am expecting the boards the slow down, I would like to see a post at least once a week. I will do my best to respond more than that, if there is more activity. Thanks.
