Welcome to the Summer Festival!
Event extension until August, 1st. That should be plenty of time to get everything done, right? :'D
Also, a little overview: Rapture Retreat
is doing very well. Affection Atoll
should work harder, they are barely present!
After a rough start, Amusement Archipelago
has come very far. Mystery Isle
is not doing too bad but their scores are nothing to write home about either. Just like every year, the Mayor was seen hurrying towards the Bulletin Board with a huge poster. But... what is this? It seems like someone beat him to it and instead of a massive text wall informing people about this year's Isle Competition, a different announcement can be found there.
“Hello little Butterfrees and welcome to our Summer Festival. Instead of the usual competition, we want to host something different this year. Who we are? Well, that will be revealed in due time but for now, we want you to enjoy the festival.
There will be no fighting against each other this time. No, we want you to work together to collect tokens for your island. You can collaborate with other islands as well because each island can win a prize depending on the amount of tokens they have collected, regardless of how many tokens the other islands have managed to obtain.
Please don't forget to include your island in the artist's comment so we can give points to you.”
Rapture Retreat - Mascot: Swanna
Amusement Archipelago - Mascot: Ampharos
Affection Atoll - Mascot: Milotic
Mystery Isle - Mascot: Arbok
Basically, the more points you make, the greater will be the rewards for your island. From money and prizes given to every inhabitant to new (Island-specific) community projects, sponsored by the hosts of this festival... if you put a lot of effort into winning tokens, a lot of surprises may wait for you.
So, what awaits you?
First, we have the Roleplay Events
Various chat events will be hosted throughout this festival and we hope lots of people participate! When you participate in a mod-led RP event, you will gain 5 tokens for your team!Event list:Eating contest
– The lovely innkeeper couple host an eating contest. How much can you gobble down? At what point will your stomach rebel? Find it out.Bon Dance
– Dance together with others or just watch the fire together with some friends? This event gives you the perfect opportunity to bond with others~Taiko performance
– Ever wanted to hear professionals playing the taiko drums? Maybe you have always wanted to give it a try yourself? If so, don't miss out this event!Procession
– Join the parade as everyone dresses up in traditional clothes and marches through the streets of Raccolto. Perhaps you even get the chance to catch a legendary during this and receive a reward in return...Karaoke
– Were you secretly meant to be a singer? Or do you sound like a cat in a blender? Either way, we want to hear you belt out your favourite song, regardless of how talented you are.Suikawari
– For those who prefer some beach events. Smash a few melons, eat them and maybe even wear some funny watermelon hats. Everything is possible... unless you actually hit the foot of the person next to you…Fireworks
– A nice event to relax. Why not have a little picnic with your friends as you watch the fireworks explode over the sea surrounding our beloved isle chain. Can be very romantic... or so I have heard…Tanabata
– Rumour has it, that a certain Goddess with mysterious powers has graced us. Maybe she is willing to fulfil some wishes to those who write them down on tanzaku and bring them to her so you can put them on a bamboo with her. (3 wishes from three different people will be granted)
Please note: You can also draw art for/write about these event.
We also have some Raffles
This one is pretty easy, just draw/write your character eating one of these delicacies and you will be automatically given tokens. How many? Well, that is the secret. But please note that only ONE food per submission counts – after all, we want you to enjoy the food and not have you choke because you tried to inhale three dishes at once. (If you don't know any of these... google is your friend
Chilled Soba (Zaru Soba)
Shaved Ice (Kakigōri)
Niku-Dango no Amakara-ni
Win one of three mounts:
A shiny mount
A custom-coloured mount
For this one, all you have to do is write a note to the group with the title 'I'd like to enter the mount raffle' and that's all.Lottery – 10,000 Pokedollars:
There are several strings attached to a big chest full of money. Do you want that money? All you have to do to enter this raffle is to comment on this journal with a number between 1 and 50. Someone else has your number already? No worries, people can pull on the same string so there is no need to worry about that. (If no one manages to get the string with the right number, the one who chose the string closest will win). Regardless of how many characters you have, you can only pull one string - to keep this fair for everyone~Other Events
What would a festival be if there weren't any games? Over the course of the event, we'll be accepting submissions for our Game Competition
. For every entry, your island will be rewarded with tokens but there is one more thing: Among those entries, we will chose one winner who submitted the best picture for each category. And those will receive individual prizes for their hard work.
Don't forget to mention your island in the artist's comment!
- Kingyo Sukui (Goldeen Scooping)
Draw your character trying to catch some mini Goldeens with nothing but a paper scoop.
- Katanuki (Diecut Candy)
By using a needle or toothpick, your chara can carve little figures into the coloured candy mould. But be careful, it may break!
- Syateki (Cork Shooting Game)
Draw your character shooting prizes with one of our special (and safe) cork-shooting rifles.
Does your chara have talent for origami? Does their paper crane look like a bird or a brick? Show us the results of their hard work!
- Fukuwarai (Lucky Laugh)
Similar to 'Pin the tail on the donkey', this game is played while one is blind-folded. Your character has to pin different parts of the face (nose, mouth, eyes and eyebrows) onto a blank face.
- Hanetsuki (similar to badminton)
Draw your chara playing with someone else or collaborate with someone. Don't forget that the loser of this game will be punished by the winner. In form of ink marks on their face.
Maybe your chara has always wanted to wear fancy costumes? Or they just like to stroll around with a lit lantern and enjoy the festival that way?
Yes, it had returned.
Whenever a mod is present in the chat, they might post icons of the hosts of this event: Lugia, Ho-Oh and Jirachi. Other legendaries may lead to you losing points
If you are the first to type the correct mod's name out (or tab them, which is basically typing the first few letters of their name and then pressing tab-- try it, their whole username will pop up!) you will earn one point for your team. These are repeatable.IMPORTANT!!! Final Notes
Don't forget, this is NOT
a competition. Every island can win and get their special prizes which means you can collab with others to your heart's content.Extra points
will be given out if we notice that:
Someone has put a lot of effort into their work, drew their character in typical Japanese clothing (Yukata, Haori, everything goes) and for collabs. This includes RP logs with more that 3 people.
Please note that your chara can ONLY earn tokens for their own island. If you draw two of your charas in the same picture, both will gain tokens for their respective island.
Furthermore, we only accept art that is at least flat-coloured for this event. No sketches, no five minute drawings. We want this to be fun and not have a lot of rushed pictures for the sake of getting points.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask us, the mods are more than happy to answer them.
And most importantly:
HAVE LOTS OF FUN!!!
