[Pop-up Booth] Bobbing for Fat Fish - FINISHED
« on: November 25, 2020, 04:24:32 PM »

The pool is shallow, and not quite frozen over -- the water is cold, but not quite enough to chill kin to the bone. It means that bobbing for apples, dipping their heads in to catch one with their blunt teeth, is a trial but not a torture. It means they can only try every now and then, not over and over, they need time in between to recover.

A crowd gathers round to cheer their efforts, even those who fail. And when they succeed, a roar goes up, a kin standing nearby only too happy to take the sad little apple, almost hard as a stone, off their hands. Turning it, instead, into a spectacular new prize.




This event introduces two new shop elements: our new fatcha base, which is available for any fancy box and after this event ends (January 3rd) will be an open edit for anyone to use (fish tails & fins not included!) It also introduced a new familiar, the fat fish. These dumbwitted creatures can live either in the sea or can survive for several days floating alongside their kin before they have to return to the water to rest.

This is a silly little New Years game based on mystery crackers that will run from November 27th until 10pm on December1st! All you have to do to participate is roll 1d25, including a short description of your kin dunking their head in the cold water to try and catch one of the sad apples. However, once you've rolled, absolutely do not edit your post or it will void your roll.

You can only post once per day; the water is too cold to stand multiple attempts on the same day!
However, if there are still unclaimed prizes come the 1st of December, this rule will be lifted.

There is another catch: each prize can only be claimed once. This means you only get the prize if you're the first person to roll that number. As such, please keep an eye on past rolls to make sure you're rolling a unique number!

There will be 25 winners in this event:



If you have won a prize by rolling a unique number, please make a new post using the following form to claim it.
Then you are done playing this quick game and will have to leave prizes for other people to claim.
If you don't want to keep your prize, hold onto it; at thread end, you'll have the option to give it away to a friend!

Look-See only half heard instructions before going headfirst to her possible doom. If a fish bopped her nose, all the better

Keepsake was not one to often explore these sorts of things, the previous years having worn on her. But it was better. Now. Things were better now. So she made her way to the market, letting her little ones go off to explore on their own.

Apple bobbing, though? That was... well. Different, for certain. And keepsake had promised herself she would try new things...

With surprising determination, Keepsake stepped up, and plunged her head into the freezing water. Maybe it would be worth it, in the end?

Lost Apathy did not hesitate. Her whole head, and her body, went into the water.

Fear itself followed the other kin quickly, plunging her head in without any real thought of aiming.

Boulder breaker wasn't afraid of water or... anything. She plunged in head first with no hesitation or second thought.

Taste for Murder was fascinated by this game. She dunked her head in with no hesitation, her eyes open under the water and searching for prey.

Shiny Thing was not too keen of getting wet in this weather, but it had been many seasons since she'd gotten to join in on the Market fun. She was determined to participate in *everything*. So, in she went!
