List your favorite moments from the event!
Amarallys: “Ffion, what would you do if someone you were interested in was dating someone else?”
Ffion: “uhhh… Go home and cry.”
Gathering with Stev and Pleasant to test the magic rocks.
Everything about the pitball match
Watching Jenna just decide she was going to lose and finishing the repeater mod on her own.
Babby Artificers with with fire crackers
The incident with the artificers and the sapper charge.
Montgomery giving himself migraines trying to feed us intelligence on the shadow.
Nearly dying in the dirt after holding back Tiyagans from the Queen.
Coming into the tavern to get food and seeing Radumil throw his arms in the air and announce, “I am Governor Husband!” and immediately leave.
When Haven and two others were outside the tavern, and bowed as the queen passed, the attaché mentioned to us in passing “the queen definitely noticed you, and appreciated the welcome.” And all I could think was “SEMPAI NOTICED ME”
Also: the amount of literal perfection that was Persephone as Queen Katherine II. I could not imagine a better monarch. My freaking NPC was speechless half the time.
Oh gosh so many uh.
Walnut puzzles with Addie, Francis, Rosie and Avy and everyone else who helped, even though we were terrible at it and the fox told us we were bad at it.
Being a very confused newcomer as Monty announced he was working with the shadows and making a dramatic speech.
Making Foccacia and watching everyone Enjoy it late Saturday night.
Skirmisher lessons with Bertrand where Silas and I had our arms tied to our sides and then were told to fight each other and everyone came to watch for entertainment purposes.
BEING INVITED TO PLAY PITBALL FOR THE KRACKENS and almost beating the Foxes.
Squid arms for days.
Rhett: Evangeline is a handful isn’t she?
Bishop: Yeah, two handfuls.
Addie: Shocked/embarrassed expression Bishop!
Rhett: I mean he’s not wrong.
Scream therapy at the Beach because the world was ending we think.
@AiraKay “Avy has never been in surgery!” on the ride up
AVY SURGERY X3 this weekend lol
-Performing a dissection on a half-frozen chicken
-Cutting and removing eggs/maggots/flies from Girard’s arms
-Removing parasites from someone’s legs immediately after
-Fighting off Yetis and arctic foxes as half the tavern ignores and tries to eat their lunches
-Cheering for the Krakens with our tentacle wave
-The sheer amount of critical bodies stacked up in the infirmary after the last fight
Just to name a few…
After Queen Katherine got away safely, and everyone finally made it out of surgery, the town gathering around to hear Amaryllis read the remainder of the Queen’s speech. <3
Evy giving the twins a Stern Lecture about Safety for when the queen was present, getting frustrated, and then bribing them with cookies if they were well-behaved and followed instructions and didn’t blow anything up. (It worked.)
Also the cookies were super good
Everything about the Pitball match, so excited to play against the Krakens again!
Dying side by side with Countess Northmarch trying to buy time for the queens escape.
Prudence tea time
Explaining to the queen that Vaast is in fact faast.
Being the most emotionally vulnerable Vaast has really ever been at a festival. Seriously so many amazing interactions with everyone this event, you all made my weekend!
I couldn’t possibly sing enough praises for Persephone. I went from “politics are a frivolous distraction from death’s determined march” to “yea I’d take a bullet for you” in about sixty seconds.
After pushing down the path to get the Queen to safety, leaving bodies in our wake as the Tiyagans picked us off off one by one, the Queen finally boarded the HMS Indomitable. At this point, I looked around to assess the situation. In the final clearing, there was the Queen wielding a sword, three Naval officers, and… … …is that someone sprawled unconscious on the ground carrying a pie??? Where did they come from, how did THEY somehow make it to the final stand, and was our last resort to just pie the Tiyagans in the face???
No plan survives first contact.
- “Sempai noticed me!” at Bertrand/Artemis (I don’t remember why, or if it was directed at the character or player )
- Running a Tyagian solder through with my sword…only to be shot by another soldier…
- The Kraken’s pitball debut…where 1/2+ the team learned the rules 5 minutes before…
Drevnia related RP
- Starting to cry from writing a letter to my in-game ‘Mum’
- A two-fold lesson:
- Sparred with Stev, as part of a Spiritualist Lesson for me,
- and then turned around and harassed them (including stealing their “lunch money” while we were both Walking With Spirits) as part of their Lesson
Commander Mendoza yelling “At ease, Lieutenant” from a dozen paces away while I was trying to shoo some bees across the field
Kep: “and then, as I wake up from surgery, there is just this leg spooning me from knee to armpit, and people keep telling me not to look down”
The saints of the sea of the land, for sure.
Literally any slimy thing Kate brings out
BIG STANTON MY EXTREMELY WELL BEHAVED CHILD!!! HE knows FIVE tricks now and the next one will be even better!
Bunkmates reminded me on Friday night that there was a rumour about writing a letter to someone you lost and leaving it in your shoe with acorns and realizing I hadn’t lost anyone, so I made up a dead girlfriend on the spot. I full-on sobbed later on Saturday about her during the rememberance ceremony.
Annaliese talking to the shadow changeling that used to be her boyfriend while walking side by side on a dark path at night while a fight is going on.
Townsperson ahead of us: “Who goes, there? Are you friend or foe?”
Annaliese, genuinely not sure how to answer: “Um, yes? Both?”
