Events Planning

Postby Kiyaani » Fri Feb 03, 2017 4:16 pm

Hey guys,

Some of us were thinking it would be fun to have more player-run events. If you have an idea for an event (either one you want to run or just one you want to see run) please post it here. If you see an event idea posted and want to take charge of it, please start your own thread and go for it. Some events might be more suited for one character to run over another, but we can all help with planning and preparation. The more ideas the better :)

Thanks!

So far two events have been suggested:

A bonfire cookout/get-together

An outdoorsy competition/crafting day - fishing, woodworking, cooking etc.

Dorn chases people through a field of corn while wielding a scythe. He kills everyone one by one, until the most unarmed and defenseless looking person manages to kill him with a rock. LET IT BE ARRANGED.

I actually was thinking of trying a ritual in the Shadgard mine, something to honor the Mountan Father and ask him to bless the mine and those in it.

I've been wanting to run a player-run craft festival of sorts for ages and ages. I just have to get my own details in order. I may have mentioned it to the GMs in an e-mail.

Bonfires are fun. Wish there was a way for them to not be a blood bath though. This is me looking at you, Dorn.

You overhear the following rumor:
"There's an old man that can sometimes be seen walking around with a trunk, rumor has it he takes it to the stables and gets naked in front of the horses before changing clothes from the trunk."
You think to yourself, "Who could that old man be?"

You guys make it sound like every time Dorn shows up someone dies. Or is hurt. That's quite an exaggeration.

Perhaps it is, but it's still a concern! The man has a reputation!

In honesty though, even more casual stuff like that coffee shop relax that happened in Haiban would possibly go down well. Get people together, neutral environment, and let the topic range however it may with no other strings.

We're starting to get some good ideas here. If anyone wants to take charge of one please feel free. For more casual stuff - just see if there are people on and invite over the network. I've done it in the past - hey all, who wants drinks at <location> and it generally works pretty well for just getting together.

I am always up for a casual meeting. Those tend to be the best since it's player-driven more than anything. I plan to initiate more of these. Just waiting for my schedule to become a bit more predictable again so I can post the more important stuff on the events board and around towns.

So, I mentioned this on chat earlier today (yesterday now, I guess?) but my grand plan/Zahrah's grand plan because she's the socialite over here is to host one IC event each month. At least. I might do two in a month if one is small/easy/wouldn't require much planning (like my tea party idea). And I'll be doing them at varying times (some day events, some evening events) because I know we're all in different time zones. I'll list some of the event ideas I have so far. If there's anything anyone else would like to see, feel free to let me know! If it's within Zahrah's general realm of interest, she'd host it!

Pending Events:
  • Outdoor picnic/tea party (probably next thing up; I want to see Dorn with a dainty teacup)
  • Some sort of play with PC actors
  • A masked ball/costume ball
  • A week long festival (toward the end of the year; will require mucho planning)
  • Horse race (would be an RP event/will work out logistics later)
  • Gambling tournament/stupidly decadent Burgundy House party
  • Sparring tournament/GLADIATOR GAMES (logistics worked out later)
  • Talent competition thingy
  • Group hunt followed by bonfire feast/roasting meat time

And that's all I've gotten so far. I think I've gotten properly settled into CLOK and I understand the mechanics enough now to play around with them and think up some creative things. I like RP events. Be prepared for incoming RP events!

You quip, "It would honestly not surprise me if you did."

You notice a horribly disfigured squirrel quietly scanning the area while attempting to appear nonchalant about it.
