People who join this month but don't have anyone to invite them can still submit for this prompt, and instead of rewarding 5 Esse to your friend, your 5 Esse for completion will go into a raffle for the event! Anyone is elligible for the raffle.

    "I am a Newcomer and I am being invited by ___."
    OR
    "I am a Newcomer and I am joining by myself."
  3. That's it! Once approved, you'll get 10 Esse which you can use at the MYO Shop.
  4. Create your MYO! Once complete and accepted, your friend can also submit to this prompt with a link to your character to claim their 5 Esse.

Current Members

  1. Once your friend completes their character, submit to this prompt with the following:
    "I am a Member and I am claiming the following invitees."
  2. Add the characters of all completed MYO's using their ML codes (MYO-###).

Rites of Valor 2020

Rites of Valor 2020

Category: Archive
Ends: 10 July 2021, 23:59:59 CDT (3 months ago)

The Rites of Valor are used to realign your spiritual balance. View more details for requirements.

Details

Create an illustration where your character participates in the Rites of Valor.

the rites

Valorism is the most popular religious identity in Orrison, with the widest range of sub-religions. It is centered around the idea of many spirits and multiple small gods. It is acceptable in Valorism to accept one god or a few gods as patron deities to devote yourself to (many spirits are attached to locations, families, etc, and can be very personal), but it is also just as accepted to have no patron deity and to simply respect spirits as they are.

The backbone of the faith involves the belief in positive and negative karmic energy (not good or bad, just positive and negative) that affect the spirits, which in turn affect the physical world. Helping your own deities through prayer, encouragement, and offerings can help to maintain harmony. 

Every living being is a small spirit in and of itself, just with a physical body, so Valorism also teaches that you must treat others with respect as well. When one dies, their energies rejoin the spiritual atmosphere of the world (Fys). The state of their afterlife, whether pleasant or hellish, depends on the state of the physical realm. If harmonic balance is not maintained, the area will cause all spiritual life to suffer. Pressure is put on practitioners because their actions are responsible for the suffering of spirits, and their owns pirits will join them after death.

One can balance their energy by performing certain behaviors and surrounding one's self with certain objects and colors. This can vary from self restraint and punishment to reward and indulgence, as prescribed by Valoric Sages. It includes things like taking pilgrimmages, eating certain foods, and wearing certain colors. The prescribed rituals depend on one's mental state, build, health, recent actions, and eye color and more, such as:

  • Punishment
    • Isolation
    • Fasting
    • Giving up material goods
  • Reward
    • Indulging in rich food
    • Listening to music
    • Attending performances
    • Participating in a party
  • Action
    • Wearing a certain article or color
    • Requiring a certain behavior (ex: can't step on cracks, or must bow to doors, or has to sing all their words)
  • Service
    • Constructing buildings
    • Cleaning public spaces
    • Reparing structures
    • Farming

Hello, World!

Hello, World!

Ends: 31 July 2021, 23:59:59 CDT (2 months ago)

The FCR is the primary form of communication. View more details for requirements.

Details

They say that Aria sings into the dreams of inventors, scholars, philosophers, artists, and politicians. Though many warn that her voice can lead to insanity, countless advances in technology and power throughout history have been claimed to have been inspired by her song.

The Fysa Communications Relay (FCR)

An immanu called Ithika is the creator of the server and network which hosts central communications. There are servers in Ichorrai, Ynochrin, Immitheus, and Lireah. The network takes advantage of the condensed fysa in the atmosphere to quickly send small amounts of data across long distances (text, not voice).

Anyone with a communications device called a Replier can access the chat, however they can lose connection when separated from the main atmosphere of fysa by heading underground, or encountering strong aria interference.

The network is simple-- private, one-on-one conversations are not possible, but anyone with the right device can access and relay talk on the channel.

Also, fysa can only take a signal so far before it degrades and is lost. Ithika is always looking for help in installing repeaters to relay the signal further away from Ichorrai.

Create a Tupper

We have tupperbox, a discord bot for speaking in character, and a chatroom for in-character talk. For this event, you can get rewards by simply creating a 'tupper' for a character and submitting screenshots of it speaking. Use the #commands channel to set up your tupper!

Tupperbox commands

  • tul!help
    get a list of commands
  • tul!help command
    get info on a specific command
  • tul!register "Name" Bracket: text
    create a new tupper! Their display name will be the Name you set. The bracket is the trigger you use to get the bot to replace the text. Replace the word Bracket with whatever you want the trigger to be. Your bracket can also be formatting. The following are all examples of valid brackets- you don't HAVE to put a name in and can just use symbols as a shortcut, but you must tell the bot where the text goes by using text:
    • Ithika: text
    • >text<
    • >>text
  • tul!avatar "Name" link/image
    add an avatar for your character. You can link an existing image, or copy-paste or upload a new image.
  • tul!tag "Name" Tag
    add a tag to your character. The tag appears after their name. Ithika's tag is [System Administrator], for example.

If you do not have an adopt and would like to participate in this event, human characters are free to make in Orrison!

Draw your character participating in a Valoric rite.

Minimum Visual Art Requirements:

  • 1 Food Item drawn
  • Sketch
  • Flat colors
  • Both digital & traditional are accepted!
Option B: Literature

Create a fake recipe for a dish! Must include both an ingredient list and steps for 'cooking'. We encourage you to write it as if it's being written by your character.

You can also write a "recipe preface" (the introductory paragraphs in cooking articles) explaining the importance or relevance of this dish to your character.

Minimum Literature requirements:

  • Ingredient list
  • Steps for cooking
  • Written in character, from your character's point of view

Ynoch's Offering 2020

Ynoch's Offering 2020

Category: Archive
Ends: 30 September 2021, 23:59:59 CDT (3 weeks ago)

Ynoch accepts stories as an offering, and gives blessings in return. View more details for requirements.

Details

Make an offering to Ynoch for good fortune and protection in the upcoming year.

Ynoch's Offering

One doesn't have to be a performer or a writer to offer a story to Ynoch, and they do not have to be retellings of her old stories. She accepts tales, real or fake, happy or sad, from anyone. Feats of the year, accomplishments, wishes, auto-biographies... every person has a story! Many even write about rumors they've heard of others.

These notes are written and then tied on strings to the branches of trees in her forest during this month. Stories will randomly vanish, until all have apparently been read by Ynoch.

This is a literature focused prompt.

Option A: Rumor

Write a rumor! It can be either about your character from a nameless NPC, or from your character's point of view about another character.

Minimum Requirements

  • 2 sentence minimum
  • It can either be a rumor others have heard about your character, or a rumor your character has heard about someone else. Rumors are not necessarily true ;)

(If you don't know who to write about, check Open for Gift Art or ask in the discord server!)

Option B: Letter

Write a letter! It should be from your character's point of view. It can be addressed to Ynoch or any other character.

Many share the accomplishments they have in hopes they'll be remembered. Others write to Ynoch to lift the burden of a great tragedy when they have no one else to tell.

Minimum Requirements

  • 2 sentence minimum
  • The letter should be about either a great tragedy or great triumph your character wants to express.

Migari's Blessing

Not all stories are written. Many will visit Ynoch's main tree and dictate, sing, or perform stories to her personally.

This is an art focused prompt.

Visual Art Prompt

Draw a character acting out a scene from Migari and Ivei's Light using an elemental prop (ex: splash of water, fire on a stick, etc)

Prove the worth of your life. View more details for requirements.

Details

This is part 2 of 3 prompts. Completing this prompt enters you in the raffle! Completing all three prompts will reward you with a chimoraa MYO slot.

Beneath Ichorrai

Early on the third day, the city itself awakens. The center of Ichorrai rumbles and groans as the earth itself rises up in one piece, lifting buildings and residents alike. It goes up several stories before coming to a stop, revealing ancient and new structures beneath. The inner city reveals itself-- old but pristine architecture, protected by a glowing barrier which runs the entire circumference around the space.

Aelius himself stands at the gates with an announcement-- those who wish to stay on top of Ichorrai are free to live, come and go as they please. They will be safer, elevated, above the rest of the world. Those who wish to enter the inner sanctum must challenge him in any field they wish-- combat, sciences, crafts, games... whatever is their strongest forte. They do not need to beat him to enter, but their perfomance will be subject to his judgement and it will determine their standing inside of the sanctum. They are not allowed to bring any belongings inside-- but are allowed to come and go, essentially living double lives if they choose to. Every need is promised to be met inside, though they cannot promise the assured safety of those on top should the chimoraa really bring war.

Below Ynoch

Below Ynoch's tree is the entrance to Ynochrin, the city beneath the grove. Shifting tunnels connect various cavernous chambers of the city, the structures all held stable by Ynoch's roots. The ceiling is a sky of glowing rocks and many of the buildings are carved out of the earth itself. Invaders will find that the tunnels seem to change, stretch, or shrink, confusing their passage through the city.

The chimoraa offer refuge, and also promise to help those who come find a new city to make their home. But those who choose to take refuge must also give up one precious belonging as collateral-- and do not dare lie. They say it will be returned when those who are staying leave. Those who do not have any belongings left may instead offer a story of their precious thing.

Option A: Beneath Ichorrai

Draw or write your character challenging Aelius to a subject of their choice to gain permission to enter the sanctum. For Aelius' trial, you can choose whether to win or lose.

Minimum Visual Art requirements:

  • 1 halfbody character (you technically don't have to draw Aelius or Petrel)
  • Sketch
  • Flat Colors

Minimum Literature requirements:

  • 300 word minimum
Option B: Below Ynoch

Draw or write your character giving up something to Petrel the chimoraa for their assistance. For the sacrifice, you can instead draw or write about a memory of their precious item in lieu of them giving it up (as a 'story' of their precious thing).

Minimum Visual Art requirements:

  • 1 halfbody character (you technically don't have to draw Aelius or Petrel)

The Chimoraa

The chimoraa are a chimia subspecies, but their time on the fys-drenched planet of Orrison, deep underground, has caused a great divergence of physical features. They have been called the unseen, due to how closely they've been living to Ichorrai this entire time, likely watching and waiting.

Option A: Visual Art

Draw your character if they were a chimoraa!

Minimum Visual Art requirements:

  • 1 fullbody character
  • sketch
  • flat colors
Option B: Literature

Your character has a dream that they've awoken in the city of Ynochrin as a chimoraa, and struggle to reconcile their identity of their past life with the one they've jumped into. Write about their experience, and how they deal with the situation!

This month's event is a little more open ended! You can use this prompt to submit any artwork, literature, or RP related to the Love and War 2021 event for the duration of the month, but you can only submit three times. Submissions should be related to your character's reaction or participation to ongoing events. These are summarized below for reference, but you can view the full details on the event news page.

Ynochrin: Scouting Party

The chimoraa themselves busy with war preparations, however have also supplied several scouts to aid refugees in the exploration of ruins for a suitable home. Tol, Kichora, and Immitheus are the three suggested locations which the chimoraa know of.

Ichorrai: Sanctum

The Sanctum has set the rules of habitation, and everyone is marked with status with their emotions on their sleeve. Though Aelius was forced to reveal the Sanctum early, he still intends to run his social experiment.

Ichorrai: Preparation

Aelius firmly opposes an outright offensive, instead focusing on defense. He wishes to secure their line in the valley near Terralai, assuming the chimoraa will be coming across land rather than the sea. More secretly, he hopes to strengthen Kinstead's position as well-- it's a location he is loathe to give up.

Option A: Visual Art

Minimum Visual Art requirements:

  • 1 character halfbody
  • Implied or simple background (should be able to tell where/what is going on)

The Search for Lireah

Lireah was the original home of the Archivist. It is the home to her original archives, a spiralling conch structure of a library built into the mountainside, and a testament to her dedication to the preservation of history. Lireah was so important that she feared any who had control of it might have too much power-- so with the help of her archivists, she detached the entire city from the earth and floated it into the sky. The Archivist has no idea where it exists now-- its drifting course is controlled by those who live on it, and she believes it unlikely there are any leyr who survived the storms left in her city. Her best hope is that the library's seal remains in place to keep her treasure of knowledge safe inside.

The Archivist holds the belief that wherever the library exists, it might still be accessible through the old teleportation network that used to connect all of the major cities of Orrison. Ichorrai's is broken now, its outgoing pad destroyed when refugees fled to the moon-- only its incoming pad is in tact. These structures used to be vital pieces of infrastructure-- but while all the cities were connected, they were also divided by politics, power, and war. Many of these systems were not left unguarded or out in the open, and she knows Immitheus' is somewhere in its deep belly.

Now that the threat of war has ebbed, the Archivist herself has left Ichorrai for Immitheus to oversee the plumbing of the old city's depths. This year, her boon will be granted to those who provide the greatest assistance.

The Discovery of Lireah

In the inner workings of Immitheus, through delights and dangers of the maze that exists of the city's infrastructure, explorers finally found the teleportation portal. Passage was secured!

It was a wonder to learn that Lireah still sailed in the sky-- and even more of a wonder, still, to learn who piloted it. They are descendants of Rhotian rrex who won a gamble with Viis-- unable to escape to the moon and dying of poisoning, several crews of sky pirates proposed a race to the flying city of Lireah against Viis. Rather than race itself, Viis chose a champion-- it promised the one team of rrex that whether or not they won the race, they would live... but if they did win, they would become true gods and all the other Rhotians would die.

That team of rrex chose to throw the race, allowing the species as a whole to survive. Viis took them and reformed them so that they would survive in the new world-- it saw that their bones remembered Kheir, remembered her smallness, and remembered her resilience. It reverted them to their old forms-- and as a gift for their wonderful racing, gave them back Kheir's lost wings.

The Kheiraa

The kheiraa are a rrex subspecies, but their deal with Viis has caused a great divergence of physical features. They have been called the distant, due to their inhabitation of Lireah and their affinity with the furthest sky and deepest dark.

Option A: Visual Art

Draw your character if they were a kheiraa! If you do not own a character, you can make and use a human as long as they have a ML entry, or use someone else's character with permission.

Minimum Visual Art requirements:

  • 1 fullbody character
  • sketch
  • flat colors
Option B: Literature

Befriending the Kheiraa is easy, but earning their approval is a daunting task. They are extreme dare devils, and view danger as a celebration of mortality- a combination of their appreciation for both Kheir and Viis.

Getting their respect likely takes some sort of huge gamble or stunt! What does your character do to try to show off to the kheiraa?

The Spirebreak

Storm season passes without incident- instead of the harsh torrent of the aria storm and the following clarity of weather, the world is plagued by a persistent and annoying humidity and drizzle. The change causes unease, which only grew as time passed.

The weather does not deter work in Kinstead. Aelius erects a barrier around the lesser spire, and rumours spread that whatever work is ongoing within its limits are what are causing the lack of storms. Many wonder if he's 'solved it'- if his goal was taming the forces of nature and fixing the problems his ancestors caused with the Senescence.

Through this calm, those in Immitheus are able to take the opportunity to fortify their city, and they even are able to help repair the teleport in Ichorrai by referencing the technology they uncovered. Life even returns to a resemblance of normalcy in Ichorrai and Ynochrin.

Then the spire breaks.

A great force rips through the spire itself, causing the entire world to shudder. Quakes plague the earth, exposing new ruins and burying old ones. The crystal spire itself cracks and even shatters, its coloration warping and darknening in jagged splotches and veins through the normally blue crystal, and the sound of it is like superheated glass exploding. From every crack and break spews a miasma, not unlike the storms that it normally produces, but much heavier, much thicker, and absolutely unceasing. The miasma covers the world in a matter of days, darkening the skies.

The Dream

At the same time, everyone in the world experiences a dream simultaneously. It begins as a whistling scream echoing the sounds of the spire's destruction, and plunges each individual into their own personal vision:

You stand in a vast cavern where a great beast sleeps. The cavern is so large, you cannot see its dark edges, and the darkness is so heavy that your eyes hallucinate stars as pinpricks in the blackness. The breath of the creature before you is laborous and ragged, and you can smell the sickness and pain rolling off of its body even from a distance. Someone is holding your hand, and though you cannot see them in the dark, you know who it is-- a loved one, a family member, a stranger... the figure varies from dreamer to dreamer. They say that it has been a very long time since they've seen you, even if you had only seen them just yesterday in the waking world. Then they apologize. Fys is waking up, and that cannot come to pass. If Fys' dream ends, then it will reclaim every shard of its soul, one way or another, and every being on Orrison will die.

The Aria's lullaby has been interrupted, her song changed to a scream, but now she is free to use her voice to freely guide you- to wield your intelligence, your determination, your strength, or simply your life. Is the beast in front of you Fys? Surely it cannot be-- though it is large, it is too small to be the entire world, you think. You feel it may be someone else, but someone important. As you awaken, you feel both a deep dread and the sense that you are loved- both by Aria's voice, and by whatever awakens beneath your feet.

Option A: Visual Art

Draw your character's dream as a collage, vignette, or splash image. A splash image is an image which acts as a summary of events, often portraying either the main moment in an event, or having multiple moments in one image (example | example).

The common themes of the dream is darkness, stars, and being spoken to by Aria through the mouth of a family member, friend, enemy, or stranger. Aria may also show your character visions specific to them in order to motivate them, so you are free to change or specify the contents of your character's dream.

Minimum Visual Art requirements:

  • 1 halfbody character
  • sketch
  • flat colors OR shading
  • Platform Background, Partial Background, or Simple Background
Option B: Literature

Write about your character's vision from Aria. Include a couplet somewhere in the literature!

The common themes of the dream is darkness, stars, and being spoken to by Aria through the mouth of a family member, friend, enemy, or stranger. Aria often speaks in rhythm but this isn't necessarily always in song or rhyme. She may also show your character visions specific to them in order to motivate them, so you are free to change or specify the contents of your character's dream.

Completion of this prompt will reward you with a luraa MYO slot. View more details for requirements.

Details

The Spirebreak

With the destruction of the spire, the aria storms have abated and magic coalesces on the surface, stronger than ever. In the miasma, new spirits manifest, perhaps a sign of the changes occurring in the world and its landscape.

The Luraa

Luraa are manifestations of natural magic. They have a stone core which acts as a focus for their being, and stores their most vital essence much like how a gemstone holds fysa. Because Luraa form naturally in the environment, they used to be treated as 'spirits of the land' by many others. They were wiped out with the introduction of fysa and aria storms, but now that the storms have abated they have returned to Orrison.

Option A: Visual Art

Draw your character if they were a luraa! If you do not own a character, you can make and use a human as long as they have a ML entry, or use someone else's character with permission.

Minimum Visual Art requirements:

  • 1 fullbody character
  • sketch
  • flat colors
Option B: Literature

The luraa have precipitated in a time of change and upheaval. Write an entry from the point of view of a newly manifested luraa, who has just come into the world and is experiencing it for the first time.

This luraa doesn't necessarily have to be the character you use to make an MYO slot.

Minimum Literature requirements:

  • 300 word minimum
