Day of the Rose
The FOOT is DOWN Lila2018-01-10 23:09:32


Jousting

The Jousting Tournament will be a single elimination event! There will be random pairings between players who want to be involved in such. To keep things fair, the RPG Dice module will be used. There will be explanations of such given at the event to show how to use such. All the players involved will get to see other players rolls.

What does this mean? This basically means that even though the event itself will be RPed out, the dice help to keep things fair. Each player will have
5 rolls of the dice, their opponent doing the same. The player with the high score per roll set will inflict damage upon the other's character and vice versa. Whoever inflicts the most damage (has the highest roll of the game) will be declared the WINNER!

There will be NO KILLING another opponent int his event however one might get injured pretty bad if they roll quite low! If you are interested in joining the Jousting Tournament, please send in a petition to let us know so I can set the bracket up and posted by Thursday night. The event will take place Friday, time to be announced if enough register! Lila plans to join herself!

Also, just to note that no matter where your player is currently in the Silverwine timeline, they are still able to attend this RP event as its part of the festival and doesn't affect anything else outside of it. So for example, even though Jarl Freyja is kidnapped at the moment, she could attend if she wanted. Just keep that in mind!



-------------

Flirtation Contest

Do you consider yourself an excellent FLIRT? Well, on the Day of the Rose, we will be having a contest in the village of the event. The best MALE and FEMALE winners will be announced.

Each player that participates will have to leave comments in the village, whether it be to others present or just in general to prove that they are the best at charming others! Our staff will reward points
(roses) to those who IMPRESS us the most with their words and remember, keep it somewhat PG-Related! XD

The players with the most roses wins for both genders. No MINORS will be allowed to join this contest, adults only.

---

ROSE POKES HAVE BEEN ADDED AS WELL, ENJOY!


----


In honor of Day of the Rose, Lila has scattered six different colored rose petals throughout Silverwine. There is a different prize for each petal, find them all and win the GRAND PRIZE!

For this particular search, you are simply looking for an image of the colored petals below.

Red, Orange, Pink, Green, Purple and Blue!

You will have until Tuesday night to find all of the petals! Again remember, no words this time you are looking for but images!

SIMPLY PETITION IN WHEN YOU ARE DONE, NO MATTER HOW MANY YOU FOUND YOU WILL STILL WIN!

Not many of you may see this staffer as she is completely different hours from most on site but in all reality, she is a BIG help to me and Silverwine with creative ideas and things for events. If I ask, she always delivers and why she may not be as active as most of my staff she is a GREAT part of my staff team and I am lucky to have her as part of Silverwine Staff. You do a fantastic job Nerina!

CONTEST
The FOOT is DOWN Lila2017-12-10 09:54:14

'Twas the month of Christmas,
And all through the realm
...


...Everyone was putting on their best Christmas cheer with bright costumes and lights and songs...Oh dear...Silverwine doesn't seem to have a Christmas-y song!

Your task, should you accept....
...Is to create a parody of the iconic Christmas song "Twas the Night Before Christmas". You MUST make your parody site themed - pertaining to the characters and world that we are in.

Rules
1. Must have originality. While you are matching the Site/Skyrim theme...DO NOT use characters from the actual Skyrim game. And DO NOT google and copy someone else's work.
2. If you use other player's characters within your parody, whether staff or otherwise, you MUST have the permission of the player.

If you use a player's character without permission and we find out, we will toss out your submission.


3. Finally, remember that we are a PG-13 site. Your parody must be appropriate.

All entries must be petitioned in no later than Monday, December 18th at 11PM EST.

All submissions will be saved within Silverwine's Library in Dawnstar. All participants will also receive prizes.

Good Luck!

The Burning of King Olaf!
The FOOT is DOWN Lila2017-12-04 20:42:56



In the land of Silverwine, the burning of an effigy of King Olaf One Eye is a yearly tradition upheld by the Bards College for time immemorial. It is an extravagant festival held to remember the supposed deeds of King Olaf who slew the dragon Numinex centuries ago…however, did he really? According to the Poetic Edda and the writer of King Olaf’s verse, Svaknir, perhaps these deeds were not so true! Was the famed King Olaf really a liar and a tyrant? Bards from all over Silverwine gather yearly to burn him in effigy because of his treasonous falsehoods, and this year…they want YOU to join!

But they need your help!
Freyja’s version of King Olaf’s verse is incomplete, and she is looking for a cunning poet to complete it for her! The verse as it stands right now…

O, Olaf, our subjugator, the one-eyed betrayer, death-dealing demon and dragon-killing King. Your legend is lies, lurid and false; your cunning capture of Numinex, a con for the ages. No shouting match between dragon and man, no fire or fury did this battle entail.

(two pages of blotted out words)

Olaf grabbed power, by promise and threat; From Falkreath to Winterhold, they fell to their knees; But Solitude stood strong, Skyrim's truest protectors. Olaf's vengeance was instant, inspired, and wicked.

(two pages of blotted out words)

So ends the story of Olaf, the liar, a thief and a scoundrel we of Solitude commit to the fire.


There will be a contest to complete those blotted out pages! The rules of the contest are as follows:

-You cannot use any of the options that are in the actual Skyrim game. They must be original entries.
-All entries must fit within Skyrim lore.
-Be creative! They can be funny, serious, sad, scary, what have you! Just be original!
-All entries must be submitted via petition by
8 PM EST on December 9th in order to be considered for the contest.

The winner of the contest will receive free music lessons in the instrument of their choice from Freyja herself! (Fun RP opportunity!)

In addition, they will also get to read their version of the verse during the burning of the effigy. In the event that the winner can’t make it to the actual festival, the next runner up will be chosen. (All participants will receive prizes, so send them on in!)

The festival will begin at
6 PM EST on the 9th day of Evening Star (December), and will be kicked off by a carnival in the city plaza of Solitude! There will be games, food vendors, juggling acts, strongmen, sword swallowing, performances from members of the Bards College…everything the mind can imagine!

((If you are interested in participating in the festival as a vendor or performer, whether in character or NPC, please message Freyja directly! We definitely want all the performers we can get!))

After the completion of the carnival, which will carry into the next day, the burning of the effigy will be held at 7 PM EST on December 10th.

The winner of the contest will be announced earlier in the day, and at this time, said winner will come forward to read their version of King Olaf’s verse. This and the burning will conclude the festival!

So come on out, enjoy some great performances, and most of all, HAVE FUN! We hope to see everyone there!

Christmas in The Netherlands!!

Poem Winners


Abominable Wulfman

There's a thin line between the good and the bad,
And perhaps to that, I'm blind.
I try so hard to do what is right,
To help those of my own kind.
The difference between them and me
Has never been too clear.
For maybe we really are the same,
All just driven by the same fear.
We fear the consequences of what we've done.
We try to be our best.
But certain situations we see ,
Surely put us to the test.
For our good, may be their bad.
Help one, but hurt another.
There's no clear answer in a moral sense,
To hurt a man to help a daughter.
Sinterklaas, I know I've sinned
For there is no one true answer
But when faced with a difficult choice
I've never been a chancer.
I do what I must to survive this life,
To help the ones I love.
And perhaps my dear Sinterklaas,
That is why I am good.

---
Snow Adorable Lila

Dear Sinkterlkaaus, Ive been good.
Very respectful of others, even in adulthood.
I ask that you bring Silverwine peace,
Something finer I believe than golden fleece.
To see the joy of others and serenity we need,
Surely this is not an impossible deed.

Until the day peace is restored in the lands,
I shall continue my journey through the shifting sands,
Vowing my heart and soul to Silverwine,
Waiting for the day peace rings true and the sun shines!




For most children in The Netherlands, the most important day during December is 5th December, when Sinterklaas (St. Nicholas) brings them their presents! St. Nicholas' day is on the 6th December, but in The Netherlands, the major celebrations are held on the 5th December.

Sinterklaas travels with his servants called 'Zwarte Pieten' ('Black Pete'). When Sinterklaas and the Black Pete come ashore from the steam boat, all of the local church bells ring in celebration. Sinterklaas , dressed in his red robes, leads a procession through the town, riding a white horse. Every town in The Netherlands has a few Sinterklaas helpers, dressed the same as Sinterklaas who help give the presents out. (and sometimes you might one see one or more Zwarte Pieten with Sinterklaas !)

Children are told that the Zwarte Pieten keep a record of all the things they have done in the past year in a big book. Good children will get presents from
Sinterklaas , but bad children will be put in a sack and the Zwarte Pieten take them to Spain for a year to teach then how to behave!

On the evening that
Sinterklaas arrives in The Netherlands, children leave a shoe out by the fireplace or sometimes a windowsill and sing Sinterklaas songs. They hope that Sinterklaas will come during the night with some presents. They also believe that if they leave some hay and carrots in their shoes for Sinterklaas 's horse, they will be left some sweets or small presents. They're told that, during the night, Sinterklaas rides on the roofs on his horse and that a 'Zwarte Piet' will then climb down the chimney (or through a window) and put the presents and/or candy in their shoes.

===================
**So in honor of this tradition and our Dutch staffie XD, we have added a place for you to buy a Dutch Shoe in Solitude!! The top ten people with the biggest shoes will find all sorts of candies and goodies given to them to fill their shoe, each rank having a different tier of prizes! Soooo..what are you waiting for? How big can your shoe get to fill with goodies from Sinterklaas? You have until the end of December 5th for both events here!

Also, we will be doing a poem contest as well for this event. I know it's a bit late notice but its better than never! We ask that you come up with a poem, perhaps describing how good you have been this year for Sinterklaas? Perhaps the best one will win a big PRIZE!!! Just a Dear Sinterklaas letter will work as well but a poem form is nice as well. Does not have to Rhyme. Just petition in!

So...let's see you impress me! Good luck and Happy Holidays!!
