2021 proved to be a year chockfull of delicious scandals, unexpected twists, and lots of inter-pack diplomacy! After two whole decades of lore, history, and progress, this has been a full and creative year for all of us! We're excited to see what choices (good and bad!) our characters and packs make in 2022 that will continue to keep us on our toes...
Major IC Events
- In January, we saw the formation of a new Loner Band called Oglethorpe.
- As April came again, so too did the alien hybridized flowers of past years. It seems they're becoming a permanent, annual occurrence...
- Also in April, a select few New Caledonians were given the privilege of staying within Salsola for an inter-pack trade venture.
- Salsola successfully celebrated its 10th birthday with a week-long party in May!
- After months of planning, Casa di Cavalieri hosted the second annual Olympic Games in June, bringing all packs and loners together for a little friendly competition!
- In August, the Del Cenere Gang hosted the first annual Lancaster Stockshow, again, bringing together all packs and loners for trade and competition.
- Casa di Cavalieri turned 10 years old in October! The party feast, however, was anything but celebratory after a mysterious poisoning left several Cavaliers sickened and dead.
- November saw New Caledonia suffering a series of vandalism and attacks from a mysterious force, resulting in the closure of the pack's borders in December and sending Caledonians scrambling to find the culprit before things go from bad to worse...
Major OOC Events
- A poll was conducted in March to gauge interest in allowing images in our #general-shenanigans Discord channel.
- April brought a number of changes, events, and player engagement to 'Souls, including allowing images (in moderation) to the #general-shenanigans channel, updating our Joining Application to require a filled profile, disallowing moving threads from Canon Lasky, and asking for player feedback about our bNPCs.
- We also introduced a new board-wide contest, Spring Forth, Words in April!
- June saw change to our Graphics rules, requiring players to provide credit to all artwork and photography.
- In September, a brand new batch of Catacombs was added for bNPC usage!
- October provided us with a couple of useful additions to our Wiki, including new Pack Tags thanks to a suggestion from Despi and a new Navigation Footer courtesy of Mandi.
- Thanks to how successful it was last year, Wordtober saw its first annual return in October as well!
- In November, we celebrated 20 Years of Roleplaying! Here's to many more!
