Yggdrasil Regional Message Board
On behalf of Forest and The Rejected Realms, it is our honor to present to you a collaborative storytelling event that will be hosted on our Regional Message Boards. On our respective RMBs there will be a different narrative that begins with a paragraph and each subsequent person to follow will add their own paragraph and continue on the stories. As long as you are a member of Forest, the Rejected Realms, or one of our embassy regions with access to posting on our RMBs you can participate. Each RMB will feature a thematically different story with different characters so if you can, you are encouraged to participate in both.
The opening paragraphs for each narrative will be posted on the respective RMBs on February 21st, 2019 at 12:00 AM GMT and the event will last until February 25th, 2019 at 12:00AM GMT.
When adding to the story, quote the previous entry and add a number. This is so we can keep track of the stories in a logical way. For example
Don't double post for the story
Please keep things PG-13 and follow site rules!
Please do not ruin either story with implausible events and try to stay within the story's universe
Sneak Preview of Starting Paragraphs
In case you wanted to know what the stories will be about and start brainstorming some ideas see below.
Mielikki woke up in a cold sweat after having a dream that her favorite maple tree had been destroyed by a rogue lumberjack. She saw a flickering orange glow lighting her room and was able to easily find and put on her glasses before looking out the window to see that her prized maple was ablaze. This realization made her feel like her stomach was being eaten by snakes. She had planted the maple as a small child and grown up with it. She had her first kiss under its ruddy canopy. She cannot remember who she kissed there many decades ago but had become to consider this tree to be her best friend. She had watched her son play under it before the incident. She grabbed her cane and rushed outside to futilely attempt to douse the flames with her garden hose. Despite failing to stop the blaze its light revealed a gas can, a lighter, and footprints leading away from the tree toward the woods. A sense of resolve grew in her. She went back inside and asked her wise old spider plant if she should follow the footprints and get revenge on the arsonist after sunrise. The spider plant whispered, 'Do it if your arthritis won’t stop you! You should go for a walk in the woods in any case because it will calm you."
The march out of town was mostly quiet. Not surprising for such an awkward endeavor. Every year, the young lives of all those who had completed all the years of their formal education were evaluated based on how they fit in with the community and the order of things. Free thinkers, with radical ideas were nothing but troublemakers in the eyes of the elders. The community had been ravaged by power struggles in the past and so the elders designed this process to weed out the biggest rebels and misfits. On this day, the misfit in question was a boy named Adam. Despite the warnings of his parents throughout his childhood, he couldn’t help his inquisitive, opinionated nature. And so Adam was being escorted out to the woods miles from the community, banished forever. They finally arrived at the edge of the vast woodlands and stopped. One of the armed escorts asserted gruffly, “The penalty for contacting or returning to the community is death. Good luck”. And then they left.
If you have any questions please contact one of us and we'd be glad to help. We're excited about this and we hope you have fun writing some interesting stories with us.
Hiya Puppaffnia 👋 Miporin would be the best person to check or Goddess Relief Office. If I remember correctly in 2017 we created a list of all active Ambassadorial positions. Lots of people CTEd and we had to overhaul it and appoint new ones.
I tried finding the list on the forums but I can’t seem to locate it. Perhaps it’s in one of the drawers of the Delegate’s office. So Miporin should be able to help you out.
Since our last overhaul was in 2017 I suppose now would be a good time to have another Ambassadorial overhaul (Even if it’s just to pass the time :D )
Thanks Tiku! When anyone has updates for XKI, you can post them here: http://10000islands.proboards.com/thread/12415/embassy-yggdrasil
Also, an important announcement from the region:
10000 Islands Emissary Update
Date: February 2019
Delegate Endorsements: 333
The following is a Special Notification from 10000 Islands.
On Sunday, February 17th 2019, Chief Executive Woonsocket of 10000 Islands declared his intent to resign from his position after two years of running the region. As his successor he has chosen Markanite, three time WA Delegate and Heart of the Islands recipient. Both Woonsocket and Markanite are highly well like among the community of XKI, and while many of us are sad to see Woonsocket step down after doing such a good job we know that he couldn't have made a better choice for the person to replace him.
In his statement of resignation Woonsocket had much to say about his successor, and much to say about his time as Chief Executive. To the delight of many, he has also declared his intent to stick around and not leave the community entirely.
Woonsocket resignation letter:
Thanks to you all for letting me serve you for the last couple of years; this is an amazing region with amazing people in it and I am blessed to have had a chance to be a part of it! I am not leaving the Islands though, I will be staying around and continuing to participate in our fine region! The transition will happen over the next couple of days as I continue to work with Mark to make this a smooth transfer of power.
Please give Markanite your full support, as you have me these last several years. VIVA Markanite! VIVA 1000 Islands!
The Council of 9 wish to let the international community know that the transition is going along smoothly, and that we remain steadfastly committed to our allies and friends as before. We also welcome you all to join us on our forum in thanking Woonsocket for his service as Chief Executive, and wishing Markanite well in his new role as Founder and Chief Executive of 10000 Islands. The pertaining thread can be found in our general area on our forum.
We would be greatly humbled if the humble ambassador from Forest would visit our humble dungeons too!
*Leads you slowly down the dark path*
