The Toko Aida Military Academy is holding its annual end-of-term event for cadets and faculty on the date of 0523 5608. Attendance is mandatory for all cadets; please use this opportunity to represent our institution to visiting officers and guest benefactors. "Dates" and nonmilitary-personnel guests are prohibited for cadets, and we expect a display of discipline and respectful behavior despite the celebratory nature of the occasion. Uniforms are mandatory. Multicultural refreshments will be provided at no cost. We will see you at 1200 hours in the Sol Ballroom. Congratulations on completing this term! Welcome to the Masque! WHO: Everyone in Iwaku! Your hosts for this evening will be [DIANA]Diana[/DIANA] and [OZZIE]Ozzie[/OZZIE] along with some Mysterious Guest Hosts! WHAT: A sci-fi military academy's end-of-term party! Basically, it's like prom for Starfleet. WHERE: Roleplay Main Lobby WHEN: Thursday, May 23rd from 12:00 PM to midnight (U.S. Central time). BRING: Your character in a spiffy military uniform! RULES OF THE MASQUE 1.) You may play as a cadet at the Academy, one of the Academy's faculty officers (a teacher), a visiting officer who happens to be on board the Toko Aida station (where the Academy is located), OR a rich patron who has donated/contributed funding to the Academy in the past. 2.) This is a Masquerade! For those of you who haven't attended previous Masked Chat Balls, this means that you should not tell anyone which character you are playing until the event is over. It does NOT mean that your character is wearing a mask! 3.) This is a sci-fi setting that takes place on a space station populated by an alliance of different homeworlds. You don't have to play a human; you can be any kind of weird alien you like! 4.) Keep it fun, and don't harass other players. A little action is fine, but if you take it too far you'll get your butt booted out!
