Festival of Luck

Table of Contents

Introduction

After a long, hard winter, it looks like spring is finally on the horizon. And for the fisherfolk of Krokar, this means the time for trade and travel is upon us! This is open to all members regardless of chosen path!

Festival of Luck

To celebrate a new year of trading and traveling, we will be holding our Festival of Luck to help ensure future good fortune for Krokar this year. The festival will include a pack thread, where members will not only be encouraged to extend trade and good will to other packs, but also to explore and scavenge the lakes, rivers, and land. And, of course, enjoy good food and drink around a lively bonfire. This is Krokar, after all. ;)

Trade

As the heart and soul of Krokar, trade is of the utmost importance to help build and maintain relationships with other packs and to also give loners a little information about the pack. Leadership is encouraging all Krokarans to reach out to other packs and extend trade with its individual members. Those with a particular desire for the Trade path may find this especially worthwhile!

Exploration

Another important aspect of the Krokaran lifestyle, exploration helps the pack find new trade routes, fishing spots, and places to go scavenging -- both within claimed packlands and in neutral territories. In order to help expand and diversify communal inventory, leadership is encouraging Krokarans to get out there, explore, and see what goodies the snowmelt might start to reveal!

Timeline

  • March 11th: The Festival of Luck is kicked off with an announcement from leadership and a massive bonfire!
  • March 12th: Trade and exploration begins! Krokar members should start reaching out to individuals from other packs (or loners) for threads.
  • May 1st: Trade and exploration ends. Threads should be completed and submitted by 11:59pm EST of this date!
