Heat Wave Beach Party! Saturday, June 28th, at 8:00 p.m. CDT

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

It’s like a heatwave
Burning in my heart
I can’t keep from crying
It’s tearing me apart

— Martha and the Vandellas, “Heat Wave”


Let’s escape the heat wave and go to the beach! We can fish and stroll along the boardwalk. Surely the water will be cool and refreshing! Nevermind all those rumors of boiling seas and maddened denizens of the deep.

Wear your hottest seaside outfit*! You may catch the eye of beach royalty!

*In which you still have some hope of not taking a “sandnap”.


For the weigh-in, only Spring or Autumn Dragonfish caught June 28, 2014 qualify. The fish may be caught at any time that day. If your fish does not win, you may have it back.

There will be a gate from the Counselor Hall.

In consideration of the doubling of gubernatorial terms, Section #5 of the Primer has been updated to allow two large-scale requests per term.

Governors are also reminded of Section #3 of the Primer, which states that they serve at the pleasure of the King. If a governor fails to fulfill his or her duties, which include attending meetings, the King can and will replace that governor. His Majesty wishes to see each town represented at Council meetings. If a governor cannot attend a meeting, please contact one of the King’s secretaries.

(Felucca) Festival of Masks, Friday, June 20th, 8:00 p.m. CDT

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

The Sultan of Nujel’m invites all to his island for the annual Festival of Masks on Friday, June 20th, at 8:00 p.m. CDT. This will be a lighthearted street party with food, drinks, and shameless thievery. Please wear a mask and pretend not to recognize anyone else who is wearing a mask.

“The Game” will be played. The goal is to figure out who in Nujel’m has the Eye of Dahsk. Then steal the gem and return it to the sultan. To steal the jewel, your character must be a member of the Thieves’ Guild.

This year, the sultan has another request. His youngest daughter loves butterflies. The princess longs for the beautiful, rare, cursed Firekissed Lacewing Butterflies, which only flutter in one place in all of Sosaria. When someone gives one of these butterflies to the sultan, he will ask what guild they represent. Be careful though, the butterflies are in a dangerous area, far from the town guards!

You can recall or sail to Nujel’m for the Festival of Masks and The Game. There will also be:

  • A gate near the Felucca Brit. Moongate directly into Nujel’m, a guard zone.
  • A one-way gate near the Buc’s Den moongate to a basket of butterflies. Beware, the destination is not in guard zone.
  • A one-way gate from the throne room in Nujel’m to a basket of butterflies Beware, the destination is not in guard zone.

Reward – The name of the first person to return the Eye of Dahsk to the sultan will be displayed on a suitable item at the Felucca Award Hall. The name and abbreviation of the guild that brings back the most butterflies will be displayed on a suitable item at the Felucca Award Hall.
