[City of Roleplay] Recruitment Faire & Comic Celebration!


Recommended Posts

RULES/DETAILS (APRIL 4TH, 2021)

  • There are to be no advertisement bots or dual boxing during this event. This is targeting specific groups, but you are not welcome to do this because zone caps ARE a real thing. It is also asked that you do not show up with your entire supergroup to lock out the entire zone. This happened to the first run of the event and will not be tolerated during any future run. GMs will be called if a group shows up with ad bots/dual-boxing.
  • This event caters to the hero & villain community - those supergroups that would fit for a comic book universe. This is not the event to come to if you wish to advertise your club / bar type group. This is aimed for groups that follow in theme to the Justice League, the Avengers, Teen Titans, X-Men, and more.
  • Contests will now be held at the end of the night rather than in the middle. This is to ensure that people aren't bouncing back and forth between costume contests and roleplaying. These will be held in areas separate from the fair still. Themes for costume contests will remain grounded in similar themes to the ones from the first event.
  • Please do not go above ten people representing your group. This is for the base sake and the coordinator's sake as well!

 


INTRODUCTION
Hello, one and all!

My name is Shadeknight / @Shadeknight and I am the administrator behind the City of Roleplay discord ( Found here: https://discord.gg/DZENfu8 ) and have been working up an idea in my head of a recruitment faire like the old times. Admittedly, it was meant to happen sooner but I did not want to step on any toes (See: The SG Recruitment Faire hosted by the Dawn Patrol in March.) so I did not go for it until recently. The idea behind this recruitment faire is that it allows supergroups (MOSTLY Roleplay Supergroups - that is the target audience) to get their names out there and interact. These interactions could lead to co-operative efforts during story lines or simply new friendships! I personally believe in working towards creating a shared universe together, but that's a bit ambitious I know. For now, I can and will settle on a recruitment faire so groups can get their names out there!

However,, I don't want to just do a Recruitment Faire as it is! I'm all about giving back to the community through trivia & Costume Contests. In the vein of celebrating comic books & comic book universes as well. You can expect, with any luck, a bunch of trivia surrounding Marvel & DC + City of Heroes. You can also expect to see costume contests focused around heroes, villains, and themes that fit those. The idea here to bring out the greats of the comic book universes & Superhero/Super villain antics. These range from The Ages (Bronze, Silver, Golden) to general origin/type theme groups, and more! Those details are still being hashed out on finalizing what contests we're holding exactly. 

Now onto the other details!

Thank you, for organizing this. I'd been kicking around doing one for Villains, but like you, I didn't want to step on Dawn Patrol's toes,

Villains are valid too!

It's a little hard to pull off IC, but I'm sure any attending RP-VGs wouldn't mind IC making some distance from the main plaza. It's stuff that can be discussed.

I am sure we could come to some sort of agreement, a temporary cease fire. It would give us a chance to scout potential issues, and perhaps slip in a double agent or spy.

I am not acting as event crier this time... Though I could dig out my list of non-repeating broadcast banner messages. But making up a bunch for you to throw out to keep people aware of the event is not a bad idea. Maybe I'll make it to the faire, either way a good faire is always fun, and good luck.

I have a Darkness Manipulation Proposal: Let me know what you think!

  • Currently up to about 910mil in influence prizes alone
  • A full set of Ragnarok, 1 piece of Apocalypse

 

The IOs will be given out during trivia and the influence prizes will go towards the costume contests. As a reminder, if you will to add to the prize pool - send it to @Shadeknight in-game!

The main post has been updated a little. I've gotten up to 5 pieces of Apocalypse now, so that + a full set of Ragnarok for trivia prizes.

I've got a really crazy idea one of these weeks for a bunch of TFs as fast as one can - including the Shadow Shard TFs - to try and get as much merits as possible for additional rewards / prize money. We'll see if I commit.

A WEEK OUT - UPDATES

We are now officially a week (and a day or two) out from this event.  A few updates:

  • Costume Contests will start 2 hours after the event starts at 8PM Eastern
  • The Costume Contests will be held inside the Kallisti tower rather than the Plaza
  • We are now at 2.5 Billion Influence and rising for the prize total!
  • Trivia will begin at 7PM Eastern - an hour after the event starts. Its a simple point system for the rewards.
  • Donations to the prize pool are still welcome up until the event begins.
