Prepare your Mask for the Feast of Favors!
Heads up -- this event it will be important to have one specific prop. Be it a mask, veil, fan, oversized hat, or some other way to temporarily disguise who you are. The Feast of Favors, also called Unification Day, is a holiday event celebrating the unity of the Empire. The holiday includes the tradition of wearing masks or otherwise disguising themselves as an integral part of the event.
Tall Tales are an important part of American Folklore. From exaggerated stories about Paul Bunyan, Sally Ann Thunder Ann Whirlwind, Johnny Appleseed, Jim Bowie, John Henry, and many more... these kinds of stories make up early American Legends.
At Lost Colonies we want to continue to push ourselves to use folklore and legends from more than just European roots that many RPGs use. At Tall Tales Tavern we also want to break with the mold of Storytellers being a limited set of people. So we're turning the tables and giving our STs a break. At this event everyone gets to be a Storyteller.
Gather some fellow players together, tell the story of that time that Urfexa swam across the sea, or explore a portion of your own character's background. Run a "what if" scenario for your friends, host an epic pirate battle on the deck of a pitching ship. Defeat an entire army of 2nd MR with just your frying pan. Then come back into the Tavern and Tell that Tall Tale where nobody needs to believe you.
More details will be coming, but we believe this could be super duper fun!
This event will also be Family Friendly with some small planned kid friendly larp adventures available.
