Welcome to a little behind the scenes work for an upcoming Festival for Menagerie!

For the entire two OOC months (September to November) or one season IC... Menagerie will be hosting a festival for mostly all to participate in. Mostly, it is a chance to show off skills among the pack and challenge for higher ranks. But there will be an IC Week Long Festival located at the Sparse Pines.

Invitations will personally be delivered to The Hallows, Armada, Tojo-Kai and Valhalla. Loners will be free to join if they sign-up (pending release of sign-ups!)

If you wish for your pack to participate, please be aware that Tense-Listed Relations (and also ones that deal with heavy triggering material) will probably NOT be allowed. This is to stay true to IC and also make it fair for those who belong to many packs. Not just sticking to one or two. That being said; if you do NOT want your pack to participate, please let me know! That's just the IC ones Wren is positive about!

However, you are quite free to participate in this contest before September rolls around! That includes packs that may not be participating.

Let me explain one part of Menagerie's Posting Contest!

The rules will be simple; complete as many prompts to earn points. You add up your points in a GOOGLE DOC with URL links to your proof. The people who participate OOCly in this contest have the chance to earn "extra points" just by suggesting prompts! 50 Points will be awarded to 1st Place. 35 to 2nd Place. 15 to 3rd.

But Daisy; how do I participate?! Simple! Post in this thread. You are free to make PROMPTS to be used in the actual IC contest! Things like;

Complete a Thread
RP with someone you never have before
etc etc.

If 20 of your prompts make the cut, you get 1st Place. 15 Gets 2nd. 10 Gets 3rd! You can post as many prompts as you like! I aim to get at least 35 Prompts written up for every variety. The deadline to apply is the 31st of August. All you really have to do is post Post Prompts! Simple!

Please use the following format.

Code:
ooc name;
prompts;

list in list format!

GOOD LUCK!

Prompts;

Any prompt done alone should have a 350-500 word minimum, at your discretion, if they’re chosen to whatever feels fair. Multiple participant threads are treated like skill threads with a minimum of three posts per user before they can be cashed in for prompt points!

1.) Picking Wildflowers - Collect flowers. Can be herbs or lack traditional medicinal properties!
2.) Flower Power - Craft an accessory for yourself or a gift of sorts using flowers. Could be a crown, a bracelet, heck get creative! How many different ways can YOU use a flower?
3.) It’s Story Time - Two or more participants. Night setting preferred. Gather around with your friends and share some tales. Are they real events? Made-up tales? Story of how you got a scar, something!
4.) Poetic Justice - Two or more participants. Exchange poetry or lyrics you have made up for a song with others! Must be completely made up by you!
5.) I Like It Here - Explore the Sparse Pines to familiarize yourself with the territory!
6.) Got ‘em All! - Participate in every minigame/event in Summer Fest!
7.) Creme De La Creme - Place 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in an event at Summer Fest.
8.) Hmm, Yes, Quite - Two or more participants. Hold a conversation sharing either your or your pack’s beliefs. What do you all stand for? What morals do you have? Try to avoid arguments!
9.) Hide and Seek - Two or more participants. Play a game of hide and seek around the Sparse Pines! Will you find the wolf you’re looking for? Are you too good at hiding? Let's find out!
10.) Friendly Competition - Two or more participants. Interact with someone and develop a friendly rivalry at the festival! Which one of you is going to win most of the games and events? Do you playful trash talk? Is there a bet in place?
11.) Relations - Interact with at least three different characters in three threads who have a different affiliation than you. Claimable once per every three different characters of different affiliations.
12.) This Is New - Two or more participants. Receive a lesson about something you are unfamiliar with. Can relate to skills or just life knowledge in general! Get those intellectual brains going!
13.) Social Butterfly - Socialize with someone from each attending pack and a loner. Does not stack.
14.) Overachiever - Greet all characters signed up for the Summer Fest in at least one thread. Must have a typical three-round minimum. This includes characters your character already knows.
15.) A Moment Of Rest - Take a small breather from festivities and show us how your wolf relaxes.
16.) I’ll Just Observe, Thank You - Observe one of the other prompts, an event, or a game take place without participating yourself. Does not stack.
17.) Inner Peace - Two or more participants. Lead or participate in a calming exercise. Think wolf yoga. Must be different from just relaxing / in a group!
18.) Rare Insults - Two or more participants. A fun insult competition. Think Yo Mama-type jokes and whatnot. Meant to be good fun!
19.) Knock Knock / I’m so Punny! - Two or more participants. Alternative to Rare Insults, tell knock-knock jokes or groan-inducing puns. Hey, some people love ‘em!
20.) Casual Flirt - Flirt with someone at the festival. Does not stack.
21.) Rain, Rain - Participate in a thread where the sun is hiding and showers begin! Do you run for cover? Enjoy the rain?
22.) Mm, So Tasty - Prepare a meal beyond just felling a prey animal. This can include cooking, skinning, etc! Maybe even gathering multiple types of prey so others can enjoy some food too?
23.) A Gift For You - Craft a small accessory, purchased in the gemstone store, and gift it to another player! Aww, you’re so nice!
24.) Hunt and Find - Search for something particular in the Sparse Pines. Could be the location for one of the major events/games, an herb, getting to flowers {to lead into the first prompt posted}, looking for another character, etc!
25.) Mine’s Bigger - Two or more participants - Go fishing in a pond within the pines with a buddy. Who do you think will get the bigger fish? Feel free to do rolls using ArdyBot to see which of you has the bigger catch!
26.) Can You Help Me? - Two or more participants. Help another character in some way. Maybe a puppy has gotten lost and needs to be escorted back to its parents? Maybe a character can’t find a certain event location?
27.) Booyah! - Complete 5, 15, and 30 prompts respectively. One point per milestone!
28.)  Can’t Catch Me - Three or more participants. Participate in a game of tag! Give in to those puppy roots.
29.) Palling Around - Complete three threads with one character! Stacks for every character you complete three threads with.
30.) Rough and Tumble - Two participants. Different from a fight, your goal is to not wound your opponent at all as you try to tussle and force each other onto the ground. Whoever wins will pin the opponent for five seconds. Use the ArdyBot to determine a winner! As an observer it can not stack with I’ll Just Observe, Thank You!
31.) Dance Floor Madness - Two or more participants. Have a dance-off and show your moves! Like with Mine's Bigger feel free to use ArdyBot to roll for who is the best dancer. Can also observe the dance-off between two other characters and act as an IC judge based on what the bot determines.
32.) It's Too Hot - Find a way to beat the heat of summer. It is said to be surprisingly warm in the pines during summer after all. Do you go for a dip in a pond, maybe try to find what shade you can under a tree?
33.) Holy Moley Guacamole - Complete every other prompt listed. That's a lot of posting! Be proud of yourself.
34.) Sneaky Sneaky - Two participants. Shadow another character and try to keep them from noticing you! For each post, for the one being followed you will roll with Ardybot. 1-3 means that you do not notice the other character at all / don't pick up on additional clues that you're being followed. 4-6 means you can notice clues you're being followed, and increase your next roll by +1. 7-8 means you can turn around and try to find them! +3 to your next roll. 9-10 is game over! You caught your little follower and can then reverse the game if you so wish so the follower and the followed are changed up. Does not stack for the same two participants threading together. Regardless of how fast the game ends you must still have a minimum of three rounds per user.
