* Mini Event Ideas

Postby Kyrit » 07/05/2011 9:40 PM

Okay. So... as far as events on the forums go, one major way to have people progress is to have them battle to gain points. We know not everyone enjoys battling all that much, and just getting points for every RP post you make just seems... kinda boring I suppose? What sort of little in game events would you guys like to see if we had a forum wide 'mini plot' of sorts? For example, if you ran in to an NPC, what sort of interactions would you be interested in? Obviously the NPC could challenge you to a battle, but what else?

We'd love to hear your input. =3 Seriously. Suggest away? 8D;





Ohana means family.
Family means nobody gets left behind, or forgotten.
Even as a pirate, I understand that.
You, my family, are my greatest treasure .
I won't let that be stolen.

The NPC could offer you a pet, ya ya. CCCC;
Of course, there could always be some sort of "task" or "adventure" you'd have to complete before you got it.
Liiiike... digging for treasure on one of the beaches, or planting trees in Tengel, or something. And the more valuable the pet, the more posts would have to be done to complete the adventure. o3o?
...or something. |D

I like riddles. Like the Halloween riddles, but without collecting the parts first. Or that contest where we had to find the pet with a 100x100 picture of a part of it. Or something like that. I like to think. o3o And these riddles were nice, because they connected to Evelon instead of some "normal" wordplay that's hard to figure out for non-native speakers.



I know my dreams are made of you
Of you and only for you
Your ocean pulls me under
Your voice tears me asunder
Love me before the last petal falls






However cold the wind and rain
I'll be there to ease your pain
However cruel the mirrors of sin
Remember beauty is found within

...I like riddles, too. That's a good idea, and it's something that everyone could have a go at~
There could also be different codes for us to crack [like where the alphabet is reversed, but more inventive. o3o So the sentence "the Fenling is small" would be "gsv Uvmormt rh hnzoo". I remember doing those in school, and loving them~]
Or Rebus puzzles!! 8D Yeah!
My FAVORITE part of English classes, hands down~
But they could be all Evelon related, based on characters that most everyone should know, or species traits, or summat. :D
The answer for this one is "happy birthday to you"
And this one is "three blind mice"
And this one is "queen for a day"

Completing tasks seems like a cool idea. I'm not certain about the whole riddle thing, but that can be a "Task" too. But yeah, I like that idea. Kinda like on WoW. You go to someone, they give you something to go do, then you go back and complete it. Maybe that opens up doors for other tasks that are of higher levels and such. I don't think the level's of tasks, if there are any, should be random. More of a "work up to" kind of thing. It'd keep people interested in it for at least a while.

I like the riddle idea, or tasks...

Or the NPC could ask for a certain object, something that's hidden somewhere on the forum, and the person has to find it and bring it back to them to obtain a prize/points or whatever.

I know when I start a RP up with somebody randomly, if we don't come up with a something to do early on, the RP will die for sure because it's not interesting or exciting and there's no goal. So being given a goal in an event announcement or something and having to RP that out would be cool?

Like a mod posts in mini announcements: "A little girl was out walking dogs for money when she accidentally let go of all the leashes! Start a thread and complete -NUMBER OF POSTS HERE- to find one dog and bring it back to her. You can be in one thread at a time, but once you've completed one thread you may join/start another. The thread must be in -LOCATION HERE- and the title must contain "ME1" (for Mini Event 1) somewhere."

Then you do as instructed and you're awarded extra KS or a limited pet or something. There would a predecided end date for the event and of course you would change the topic title requirement number as new ones are added.

I love that idea, Moof.  I know I hate posting in Rp's that have no purpose other than just being an rp.  My muse can't work without my characters having something specific to do.  That's why I post mostly in Event rp's.

I know I'm not on as often as some of you; I spend most of my time at other websites. But if I get in a RP with you, I'll do my best to be sure respond quickly!Image

*points to Moof* Yes! I feel like a ton of my roleplays are dying because the characters in it are just...wandering. There was no specific plot or goal in mind, and there hardly ever is in my roleplays, since we never take the time to predetermine a plot or anything. It's just, Oh, let's roleplay these characters together! And then the roleplay dies because there's honestly nothing going on. Moof's idea would actually give us sort of a plot...like trying to find the lost dogs :P

And that's a very simple example of course. x'D They could be more dangerous or potentially more intricate. Or you could make the search for the dog your own thing. Like... The dog wanders into an inter dimentsional portal and you follow it through and shinanigans follow. And you could always decide to RP that in a seperate RP and write the conclusion in advance to claim the RP and...

... Awh homygawd. :'I I need to RP wiff somebody on here. I need to make a proper story. >P>;;
