 Year || 503
 Season || Fall
 Temp || 35℉ (℃) - 69℉ (℃)
 Weather || The iron grip of Summer has slowly faded into the gentler Fall embrace. The morning dew frosts over in the early morning hours and melts by the time the sun hits high in the sky. Many of the trees have traded their lush, vivid green for a more suitable array of red and orange hues. But don't blink, for Winter's cold embrace is fast upon Fall's heels.

Quote of the Season
"Are there lines she's crossing? Should she toe them or touch them with a pole and stay away wholly? But to avoid such a storm he offers, such a taste of life; to withhold herself from the chance to taste starlight, to love satin and silk and swallow pomegranate seeds not yet offered... She should be stronger." — Moira in

IC Relic Search Contest

This contest is a great way to get your character to explore the lands of Novus while the kingdoms are without a Sovereign, and possibly reap some great rewards while they're at it! Please read below for the rules and guidelines.

This contest will end in 4 weeks (Friday June 30th)! All rewards will be given out during that time.

THREE separate tiers of prizes! With the added possibility of Random Event item drops!

This is an IC contest! If you'd like to take part, please follow this prompt:

There's a rumor in the air that has your blood thrumming. You can hear it everywhere; in the whisper of the trees, in the murmur of the river, in the whistle of the wind, in the heat of the desert, even in the crashing of the distant ocean waves. It is said that a great relic has been lost somewhere in the lands, an artifact blessed not by the Court deities but by the ultimate, Tempus himself. You've never been involved in a treasure hunt before; the idea intrigues you. What's the harm in exploring a new land full of opportunity and unknown potential?

GENERAL RULES: Are you interested? Great! All you have to do is follow what's outlined below.

  • Your character must be accepted first.

  • All threads must be open for anyone to join (use the [All Welcome] thread prefix).

  • Please add [Relic Contest] to your thread title.

  • In each land, you can create a new thread OR respond to a current Relic Contest thread. Either count!

  • When possible, please update ONE post with all of your active threads. If there get to be too many individual replies, staff may condense all of a user's individual posts to one main one (usually the first). If this is the case, they will tag you to let you know.

  • This is a great way for your character to explore Novus, and to meet other characters that they may not have met otherwise! This isn't a race to see who gets to the finish line first - remember to have fun!

  • Because the Courts don't have Sovereigns to enforce rules yet, you'll be free to roam around in other Court's lands even if you don't belong to them. But remember: Members from that Court can drop in at any time!

  • Any prizes gained from this contest must be put towards the character who earned them--for example, if Ipomoea were to post in all 20 lands and their RP'er chose Armor as their free restricted armor, they would have to apply the armor to their character Ipomoea!

GENERAL PRIZES: Understand the rules? Awesome! We're sure you're curious as to what rewards you can win!

  • Staff will select random Contest threads to drop items in, or to interfere with the Random Events account.

  • All members who participate will receive 100 signos, regardless of how many characters they join in with. Participants may choose which of their accounts they'd like to have the signos sent to.

  • Each thread with 5+ posts will earn its participant an additional 10 signos, per thread!

'SEE ALL THE SIGHTS' Sub-contest

Objective: For your character to see all the sights Novus has to offer! To do this, the character must participate in (or start) one thread in each of the lands, excluding Bellum Steppe and Abigo Caves.

Reward: Winning characters can choose (1) of the following: Immortality, a Realistic Bonded, an Outfit, or Armor.


Objective: For your character to have the most Relic Contest posts overall. 

Reward: Winning characters can choose (1) of the following: Massive Bonded, Extinct Bonded, Fantasy Bonded, or Magic. If there is a tie, both characters will receive the prize.

  • There will be one winner (unless tied - in which case, both characters will be awarded the prize)!

  • ALL posts count! You can participate in multiple threads per land.
    Example: Torstein starts a thread in Veneror Creek where he replies 3 times, for a total of 4 individual unique posts (1 for the starting post, 3 for the replies). Still in Veneror Creek, Torstein also replies to a thread that Avdotya made. In Avdotya's thread, Torstein makes a total of 5 individual unique posts himself. BOTH of these separate threads and all of TORSTEIN's replies count, meaning he added 9 to his final Relic Contest Post count.

To make sure your threads are noticed, please respond to this thread with the following form filled out. 
When updating to add more threads, please simply repeat the "Land" and "Thread(s)" fields as necessary.
