With the threat of war looming on the horizon, clans fracturing, politics driving kinsmen apart, and the ever-present threat of magical beings, it seems a strange time for a party. However, the leaders of the ruling Clan MacCallum have decided to host their annual harvest feast despite, perhaps even because, of these problems. This year, the feast will be more than just a celebration of the harvest, but also a political gambit, aimed to draw people back together, unite them in the face of danger, and remind them of the bounty to be found when all good Highland men and women work together! The three sons of Bruce MacCallum will be hosting the event. Each has quite the reputation. The youngest is known as brash, bold, and strong willed; the middle brother as wise but overly opinionated; and the eldest as a lazy lecher, more interested in the fine women who might be attending than in the event itself. The three are also known for not getting along, and this is the reason they have been tasked with pulling off this event: To show that unity can exist, no matter how different opinions become, and to remind the guests of kinship, love, and hope... things they will need if war comes against the magical creatures of the neighboring lands. Welcome to the Masque! WHO: All of Iwaku! Your hosts for the evening will be Revision, Kitti, Cammy, and Ozzie. WHAT: A Highland Fantasy chat RP! WHERE: Roleplay Main Lobby WHEN: 12 PM September 30th to 12 AM October 1st (server time/U.S. Central) BRING: Your character and a kilt! (If you're a man anyway. 8D) RULES OF THE MASQUE 1.) Don't worry if you aren't familiar with history! This RP is set in a fantasy land that borrows heavily from Scottish history and culture, but it's not Scotland itself. 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. (Please note that this does not actually mean you should wear a mask in character!) 3.) All characters must be human. While fantasy beings exist in this universe, all in attendance are members of the various HUMAN Highland clans. 4.) Keep it fun, and don't harass other players. A little action is fine and even encouraged, but if you take it too far you'll get your butt booted out! SEE YOU SUNDAY!
