- Event Info:
The sun rises high into the air, and the day is the longest it will be all year. From this point on days will get shorter, and nights will get longer, as the world progresses into its darker half.
As the solstice passes marking a magical time of transition within the year. Magic can be felt throughout the land, while the magics of Light and Fire are at their strongest. Midsummer has become a day of celebration, mirth, and happiness, a solar festival held by mages and non-mages alike.
In celebration, various cities and towns throughout Fiore and beyond host festivals of fire and light, while hosting games of chance and skill. Mages use this time to harness the elements, and prepare for winter, while Non-Mages enjoy the festivities and feasts.
However, this year something powerful is stirring, elementals, sprites, and other creatures which flourish in the light are trying to halt the festivities, and end the transition into winter. Your job, as mages is to put a stop to these creatures, and make sure the natural order is kept intact…
To complete the event you must complete one of each “enemy” whether that be fighting the monsters, or completing the games.
For this event, fighting is not mandatory, and spawning can be an option, or done at random for added fun. Each type of “monster” will have a “combat” option, and a “festivities” option.
Magic throughout the land is affected by the transition and the Summer Solstice. Mages with Light, or Fire based magic get a boost to their strength, while Darkness, Water, and polar elements feel magically drained.
This boost or drain is OOC/Stateless, meaning it affects the character internally and does not have to be reflected in stats.
Members can sign up in teams of 2-6, a single character can sign up only once, however there is no cap on how many of your characters may participate in this event.

Weak - 4x Fire SpriteWith a burst of embers four sprites spring into being running around the festivities. These generally playful tricksters are now causing havoc, starting fires and adding to the chaos.
Weak - Bobbing for ApplesA typical festival game, a large trough seems to be filled with apples and water. Using only your teeth, no hands allowed you must stick your face into the ice cold water, cooled to offset the hot day, and get an apple. Should you succeed, the apples are delicious, and perfect for such a harvest day.
Normal - 2x Light ElementalWith a flash of blinding light two humanoid sized creatures made from pure light appear at the festivities. These creatures attack anything in sight, especially those who seem to have darkness or cold based magic.
Normal - Ring TossWhile walking the festival grounds you see one of the most common games, a floor of bottles with various colors line the area. You are given four rings, and your price is determined by how many rings you land, and the color of the bottle.
However, from the first toss you notice something is wrong. It seems IMPOSSIBLE to get that golden bottle, and you feel a drive to try again until you do.
Strong - 2x MagesSuddenly with bursts of magic two mages start to cause chaos, proclaiming that Summer shall rule all seasons, and that the will be ending winter, cold, and its grasp on the rest of the year. These mages are at an average strength for each member in the thread, and control magic associated with Light, and/or Fire.
Strong - Dunk PitAs you enjoy the festivities, you suddenly hear someone call out, describing you in some insulting way. If you look, you would see a man dressed obscenely sitting on a board placed above a tank of water. The game is simple, throw a ball(weighted improperly), at the plate with a bullseye painted on the front. If you miss, or don't “throw hard enough”, the man sitting over the tank sends another insult your way.
The man seems to be completely dry, despite how long the festivities have been going. What isn't known is that the plate is enchanted, making succeeding in this game far harder than it looks at first glance.
Boss - CernunnosJust as the festivities are hitting their peak, the music is loudest, and the sun is highest in the air a shimmering portal of green and yellow energy forms, stepping from it is a creature of legend and myth. Cernunnos, the Horned God of the hunt, standing eastly two men in height is a mix between man and beast surges forward. Though he does not attack with magic, he seems to be heavily resistant to all forms of spells, and his speed is far faster than one would expect for a creature of his size and stature.
Boss - Strength HammerFinally, the hardest game of all. What at first seems to be a simple pole with a bell on top turns into a frustrating game of ‘strength’. The task is simple, hit the plate with the hammer to test how strong you are. Yet, somehow this game seems to involve more than strength? How do you succeed...
Rose Garden, the last time that she had been here was during Valentines Day and there were some memories that she sometimes wished she could forget, but were funny now. Bursting into the others guild, making a fool of herself, getting married, chasing kids, and fending off chocolate. God that had been a day, one rollercoaster ride of a day. But, today was different, this wasn't a job or a visit, there was a festival occurring. One that Aliannah had invited Elias to go with her to.
Lanterns were lit down the streets with symbols of the solstice on them, an indication that the days were becoming shorter and the nights longer, that they were transitioning from summer to winter all over again.
It was like this every year, festivals and celebrations usually spread across the land, and this year was no different, but there was something off in the air around her, like there was something building, something being planned. So as the blonde girl stood in the street dressed in cargo pants, a light peach loose crop top with a low back, with a dark red strappy bra to show of the straps on the back, black boots, and her sun bleached hair tied up with a red scrunchy, she waited for her partner to arrive She could ask him if he felt it too, and if he did then they should probably be on their toes, and if not, there was simply nothing to worry about.
