The Festival of Holy Light III (OOC Sign Ups)

Postby AHSCA » Thu Aug 27, 2020 12:36 pm

Hello hello hello it's time for the third Festival of Holy Light a religious and festive celebration in the AHSCA Islands. The celebration goes up on September 3/4.

ABOUT:

The Festival of Holy Light is an annual widespread celebration across the islands to mark the change of seasons. As we exit the dry season into the wet monsoonal season, farmers gather their crops, fisherman haul in and dock and ordinary citizens give praise the the Holy Mother for guiding them through another growing season and prepare for the deluge. Every village and island has their own way of celebrating from mass services to nightly festivals. So what will you do? Take in the local sights, enjoy our beautiful beaches, enrich in the culture, gawk at our silly old world ways, do something maybe nefarious? Choices will be yours and yours alone.

Just remember such an event has plenty of our police on the beat so don't go too crazy. This is non-diplomatic so ideally send an average person or two or three even! If you send someone high up, best they keep a low profile while they enjoy their "vacation." If it starts getting overrun with government suits I'll put a cap on it. I'll be sending one or two from my other nation so I'm not against it.

All tech and species are welcome but as such all techs will be welcome but keep in mind I RP is an underdeveloped MT nation that also happens to have fantasy races in them. Don't ask me where you're gonna park your spaceship and I won't try to barter your rail guns for my measly tech. You are also free to arrive, stay at and visit any island at any time during the festival. Also as many have RPed COVID in their nation, don't be concerned for that in this thread assume it's all safe and all healthy and be fine.

On Weapons: The UIS allows the concealed carry of small firearms and personal knives. Please have your weapons inspected and reported at the port of entry you arrive at. If you are carrying weapons on your person and approached or detained by police, let them know of your concealed carry. Under no circumstances can assault rifles or fully automatic weaponry be brought in. If you have these, you will be asked to surrender these until you depart the UIS.

Religion: This is a religious festival of AHSCA's own indigenous folk faith. That said any person of any denomination is welcome to participate in the events or visit religious sights, etc. Christians make up less than 1%.

On Weather/Climate: AHSCA is a tropical monsoonal climate thus is very wet with frequent thundershowers. The islands are also notably subject to hurricanes even as late as this point when the season is winding down. The United Island Office of Meteorology has been watching conditions and according to the latest data, the annual trade winds have already shifted thus making significant development of tropical cyclones unlikely. Come festival time AHSCA will be sitting between two stalled weather fronts, a low pressure system off to the west and a high pressure ridge off to the east which should make for a pleasant, albeit a bit breezy stay. and The heavy monsoonal moisture expected to move in by the festival end.

Public Nudity: AHSCA is generally pretty relaxed with laws in regards to clothing but you may still be asked to remain in clothing or swim attire in certain areas or businesses. Be of note more out of the way villages do often have enforced public nudity. Communal bathing is common, those inns that only have communal bathing facilities will be very busy and you may be asked to share with other patrons including mixed bathing. Check with management for concerns.

On Crime: AHSCA is generally a very safe place with a well organized police force. Corruption is considerably low for a nation of our status but that said common sense goes a long way and always be careful. See something, say something.

on LGBT rights: AHSCA has very open LGBT rights.

on recreational drug use: Drugs such as marijuana, alcohol, tobacco are legal with minimal restriction. Most recreational drug use is decriminalized for personal use but the selling, distributing or manufacturing of synthetic drugs is PROHIBITED BY LAW. The use of drug apparatus that may pose a public health hazard (e.g. needles) is also prohibited. Do note, it is also prohibited to operate any kind of marine craft while under the influence.

Health and Sanitation: AHSCA is generally very clean with a focus on public health and good hygiene. That said it's important to be mindful of your health as access to higher quality medical care isn't readily available. Most clinics are very small and ran by one or two doctors and assistants or trained nurses. Certain emergency surgeries can be practiced in extreme circumstances (e.g. Appendectomy). Water is fresh and clean as its drawn from deep freshwater wells dug in the post-war recovery and partly from desalination. Note that more remote villages may have far more limited accommodations.

Other: Prostitution is legal only at sanctioned brothels it is in your best interest not to engage with any street prostitution for your safety and their own. Recreational marijuana is legal. Most drug consumption is generally de-criminalized but the selling, distributing and improper disposal is strictly prohibited.


BY SEA: Lacking any real airport facilities at present the most common way is by sea (unless you are able to materialize an interdenominational portal). Our ships do crisscross the globe so it's likely you'll be able to make way by sea travel through any pleasure cruiser or transoceanic vessel.

BY AIR: Though we lack a public airport, we do allow diplomatic and military flights to land at our Embassy Isle. We also can accommodate an emergency landing by a civil aircraft. We also can allow small water compatible seaplanes.


You won't find any 5-star resorts here but we have plenty to offer the traveler who is looking for something a little different. You may arrive at any island of your choosing and may travel freely between them.

INNS: Because tourism on the islands has increased the need for facilities to accommodate them have as well. Several local Inns ran by locals are welcoming and have bedrooms to give. On Aurora island, The Kitan is a popular hot spring inn with very good rates and an adjoining restaurant. With the festival's increased popularity, some smaller hostels have also cropped up, some of these are single sex and others are mixed.

WITH LOCALS: Maybe some natives are willing to take you in? We are a very hospitable people, Corona especially known for their kindness and warmness.

CAMPING: A great natural environment provides great seclusion. Equipment may be purchased or carried in.

TEMPLES/SHRINES: Given this is a religious celebration are religious temples and shrines. Our clergy are also welcoming to guests who need a place to stay. It's not expected to give anything in return but it is good manners to give a little donation or just a small bit of work for your room and food.

SHIPS: If you arrived via cruise ship local or international and the ship is planning to be in dock or coastal you can stay aboard. Keep in mind you may still be subject to inspection every time you come ashore so best keep much of your baggage behind.


Now all that pesky OOC stuff:

1. Criminal activities, murder, violence etc must be cleared with a player and/or myself before hand. Drunken brawls can happen but expect sometime in the pokey. If you commit a criminal offense so heinous, you may be shipped off to our Black Island prison without a proper trial! And then you'll have to fill out a mountain of paperwork to get extradition and nobody wants more bureaucracy!

2. Do work to put effort in your posts. I don't expect perfection and English isn't everyone's first language, some of us may even have dyslexia (like me!) so do your best show that you put effort and you'll be fine.

3. Magic is okay. This is a festival to celebrate a couple of Goddesses so nothing says your divinity can't show up and mingle with my own. Gimme a heads up if you want to do that.

4. Obviously no meta-gaming.

5. No large elaborate security details. If your character requires some kind of bodyguard then it should be simply ONE. Remember the weapons policy. THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS!

6. Please limit characters who are of nobility, government, etc. I'm more out to see the ordinary tourist more than trying to broach anything diplomatically.

7. RP Samples are required but I will accept puppet samples or PiffleNet samples.

8. I did say prostitution is legal BUT should you want to engage in such activity remember that it must be PG-13!

9. All NPCs from AHSCA and Kuronami are mine to control.

10. Applications should be finished off with "Of Light and Dark"



And now the moment you've all been waiting for fanfare please.

Good evening, AHSCA,
to be honest, I've been waiting for this and I am happy to sign up for this Festival - they are always fun!
So, coming from the Free Lands in time for the Festival:
    - Elin and Branwen Blaidd, of Tralee Descent. Officially on a research mission for their universities, unofficially, they want a vacation.
    - Aonas Folracht of the Tribe of Wicklow, a wandering Marcach and horseman. He is finishing his year-long round-the-world trip in the UIS, his last stop before returning home, using the chance to visit someone he met at a beach. He will, of course, ride Asalcloig, his trusty horse.
Apps below.

Btw, a second app with Kyrenaia (and a certain someone ; )) will come in a bit. Provided they are all accepted, would you terribly mind me playing them from my Kyrenaia-Account?

      And as threatened, here's the second part of my app: Kyrenaia.
      Though... remember at the Winter Ball, when Princess Yasmin and Prince Damir were up to something and Aurelia had no idea what was up and wanted to find it out with Marcella?
      Yeah... this is it. A honeymoon in the UIS. ; )

      Coming from Kyrenaia will be:
        Prince Damir ibn-Razia and Princess Yasmin bint-Atif.
        Princess Aurelia bint-Damir and Aldhiyb.
      Of course, they will arrive aboard the Aurelia.

            It's fine if you wish to send a few off duty politicians. If you want them to stay with a native friend, that'd be fine BUT I'm going to say no to giving absolute control of them. I'll give you some leeway here and there but ultimately I should be the one to do so. I would like to know what you have in mind because I am interested.

            Finally it's here! Glad that the Festival is back
            Just to tell you AHSCA, this year, there will be a lot of Astarian tourists coming, due to the simple fact that since the Islas Malditas are being developed at a fast pace south of the UIS, a lot of people are working on it, and so a lot chose to take some days off for the Festival. Our ambassador who visited last year may have helped to spread the word. ;)
            Anyway, you can expect around between five and six thousand Astarians who'll be visiting. But since I can't obviously play that amount of characters, I'll only play six. Four civilians, two military.

            Just to note: when I mention "Malditas 03", "Malditas 04", it refers to the island's number in the Malditas archipelago. Astarian authorities have yet to name each of the twelve Islands.

            Ok, that’s fine. Here are the applications:

            To: United Island Foreign Relations Office, Visa and Travel Section, Office 23, Nanao Building, Embassy Island, United Island States of AHSCA
            Return Address: 31 Naama Avenue, Scania, Middle Barael
            Date: Saturday, August 29th

            Name: Chloë Arborn
            Sex: (as attributed to birth): Female
            Gender: (legally recognized or identified as): Female
            Country of origin: Middle Barael (Though she has New Zealand citizenship since her father was a Kiwi)
            Current Nationality: Baraelan
            Age: Mid-to-Late 40s
            Port of Entry: [X] Port Aurora, Aurora [] Port Aya, Hoshino []Schala, Stillestando [] Kino, Corona [] Tsubaki, Animalpolis
            Will you carry contraband: No
            Are you Bringing any Weapons: No

            OOC-Section
            RP-Sample: A Gentle August Breeze
            Have you read and understood the notes and rules? Yes
            Notes: Chloë Arborn is the head of the Greens, which is currently the largest political party in Middle Barael. She is also the Chairwoman of the “Alliance for Progress”, which is the current ruling coalition of Middle Barael, making her also Majority Leader in Parliament. She closely resembles PM Jacinda Ardern of New Zealand, and she even has a bit of a Kiwi accent since her father was born in Waitingi, New Zealand. She is very kind and smart, and while she is a great debater, orator, and conversationalist, if she gets embarrassed in any way, she’ll become a bit frazzled and will suddenly become a terrible conversationalist.

            Sex: (as attributed to birth): Female
            Gender: (legally recognized or identified as): Female
            Country of origin: Middle Barael

            Port of Entry: [X] Port Aurora, Aurora [] Port Aya, Hoshino []Schala, Stillestando [] Kino, Corona [] Tsubaki, Animalpolis
            Will you carry contraband: No, of course not!
              [ ] Yes, if so, what kind of contraband?: I said I carried no contraband!
              [ ] Maybe, if so, what kind of contraband? What is wrong with you? Can’t you hear me? I said no contraband!
              [ ] No
            Are you Bringing any Weapons: No, I hate violence! Pax Unio in Sempiternum!

            RP-Sample: Same as above, though I’ve never used this character before
            Have you read and understood the notes and rules? Yes of course
            Notes: Carrie Çospeaos is the leader (and only Parliamentarian) of Pax Unio, which is a political party primarily concerned with keeping peace and diplomacy. She hates violence, and has never touched a gun or a sword in her life. She is quite prim and proper, but while Chloë is still very cool and fun despite her properness, Carrie can seem a bit aloof or too prim at times.

            Country of origin: Spain (she lived in Barcelona until the age of 7, at which she and her family moved to a majority-Catalan suburb of Scania in Middle Barael)
            Current Nationality: Baraelan
            Age: Late 30s to Early 40s
            Port of Entry: [X] Port Aurora, Aurora [] Port Aya, Hoshino []Schala, Stillestando [] Kino, Corona [] Tsubaki, Animalpolis
            Will you carry contraband: No, except for some wine and Rosé

            RP-Sample: See above, though I’ve never used this character either
            Have you read and understood the notes and rules? Yes
            Notes: Estel is the only character of mine who is not a politician. Estel is actually a veterinarian, but her longtime boyfriend is Jujab Jaghof Sant-Pau, who is the Foreign Minister of Middle Barael. They have been dating for 4 years now, and while the relationship is not going too fast or too slow for her, she still is on the fence about getting engaged or married, not because she doesn’t want to, but more because she is just a bit indecisive and nervous on this issue.

            Sooo I kind of just realized the "Port of Entry" list was a little confusing being laid out horizontally. At least I could see it being a little confusing so I changed it to align vertically. So if anyone feels they want or need to go over their pots to double check, feel free to let me know if plans are changed. It's so I can properly write up the IC for everyone's places they start at.

            So the third year huh?? How time flies if so. I still remember the first festival... By the way, would you mind if I have one of the characters being in AHSCA before the festival begun?? I think you know who I'm talking about

            Good morning, AHSCA,
            short question, which just popped into my head: While Aonas and Asalcloig will arrive by ferry of non-described origin, I was thinking about having Elin and Branwen arrive via sea plane. A quick recap of the rules revealed under "How to arrive":

            It's an amphibian, so no problem there, but is also a 32.3 m long, 32.8 m spanning, 25.3 tons heavy (when empty) twin-engine amphibian with a total capacity of 72 passengers (Model C, which will be used).

            Good morning.

            I would like to add a fourth guest, our foreign minister Jujab Jaghof Sant-Pau, who is also the longtime boyfriend of one of my other characters, Estel Caterina Ferrer. Estel is going on a “girl’s weekend” with her friends (who are also Jujab’s colleagues), while Jujab is secretly traveling to AHSCA so he can propose. My other two guests will have a faint idea of what’s going on, but they don’t know the details, while Jujab knows very little about the trip, only that they’re on AHSCA for the Festival of the Holy Light.

            Here is the application for Jujab Jaghof Sant-Pau:

            Also

            So he'll bring a sword, which is fine but what else does he intend to bring?


            1. No

            2. Sorry, a typo.



            All right Dafuerm, though lacking an RP sample, I'll approve you to come. Welcome aboard!

            Given the size and capacity I'd say direct this to land at the Embassy Isle and the departing passengers ferry their way to the main islands.

            That'd be fine by me.

            Alright, will do. I was thinking about that as a charter flight without an emergency, but if you want it to land at Embassy Isles, I'll follow your directions. Though, I hope you won't mind me skipping over the ferry ride to the Main Islands?
