Full OOC details can be found here
Who: You! And wild fae that have appeared!
When: Sundown thru Dawn
Where: The Fields
What: Bon Fires, Music, Merriment
The sun setting cast a beautiful, warm glow across the island. It was a magical sort of glow like in the movies made part by natural light and part by a glorious filter over the lens. As the heavenly glow filled one of the large field-like parks and the sun continued to slowly fall creatures appeared. At first it seemed as if they were only partially visible like a cartoony ghost, intangible and see-thru. They walked among the streets and forests as if they had been there, living there, on the same but invisible plane as the islanders. The further down the sun fell the more and more visible these fae became. In their solid figures some were beautiful like those you'd imagine in a Disney movie or a luxurious romance novel, others were grotesque and twisted, vile with fangs and leathery skin or sunken eyes. Fae came in all shapes and sizes. Some with wings, some without. All with pointed ears. The more beautiful faeries looked akin to an elf.
Many lingered in the streets and began to knock on doors--if not try to break into some homes--to coax out the people inside to participate in the festivities. They yelled and bellowed and banged around to get attention, calling out for the Great Rite to be witnessed.
In the field other fae put together bon fires, lighting up a circle of huge flames that could not to be code should there ever be one. Faeries danced around them to the music played by others, drums beating loudly, wildly, with joyful fervor. There were extra drums and various instruments of all kinds--some recognizable to humans, others quite foreign--available for anyone to pick up and play. The timpani drums sound out a powerful rhythm almost infectious to the soul. How could you resist?
Around the edge tables appeared, much like the fae, covered with food stacked high and drinks in gigantic bowls. Faerie food. Rumor has it participating in the food of the fae would leave the consumer feeling euphoric and delightful, if not tether them to the faerie realm. Fortunately for the islanders, while they might feel elated by the most delicious food ever tasted--so say the fae--there would be no shackling to any other realm. Still, the savory food and mouth watering desserts may leave a hole in the soul once it was gone...
OOC: Feel free to label your subject line with character name and/or open as per usual for large events!
There will be a second posting later today about the magic crossing the land and the abilities players/characters can receive from Dawn through Midnight for May 1st. <3 I figured two parts would make info less messy.
