Welcome to No Books of Men! We are a modern alternate history board set in a magical school nestled in the Columbiana Valley of the Rocky Mountains. Students of the Collegium Illustrata Columbiana (commonly called simply The Academy) are free to explore their wildest imaginations in learning the mystic arts, so long as it does not jeopardize the ongoing Shadow War with the Exarchs. How will you live up to the legacies of Merlin?

This Month's Bonus Event: Winter “Wonderland”



The month of January is generally a cold and snowy one. This is especially true at the high elevations of Colorado where the Columbiana Valley rests amongst the mountains. The snow has come and buried much of the mountain passes and when combined with the recent quarantine imposed on the Valley due to a strange strain of influenza, it’s a time to either retreat from the cold or embrace it.

Thus, for this installment of our monthly Bonus Event, we here at No Books want everyone to go out and experience the cold! Or, conversely, how people are trying to escape the cold and enjoy themselves indoors. This could be hitting the nearby slopes (at least those within the quarantine zone) for some skiing or snowboarding with friends. It could be exploring the woods of the Valley wearing snowshoes. It could even simply joining the campus Gaming Club for cards and board game nights.

There are two ways to enter the contest this month:
1) You can create a new thread pertaining to our challenge. The rules for doing so are described below.
2) You can produce a creative solo piece related to the challenge. These pieces can be artwork (a drawing of your character's family opening gifts) or it can be a journal entry {describing their exploration of Kwanzaa perhaps?), or anything related to the challenge.

The Rules
  • While the thread itself does not have to be set on (or even all that close to) any particular holiday, it must thematically relate to the season somehow.
  • The thread must be tagged both "Open" and "Event" to qualify, we want as many characters as possible to get in on the fun!
  • There are no restrictions on who can start or join a thread to earn the rewards, this is for Sleepers and Changelings too!
    Enjoy yourselves!

The Rewards
  • Those who join an Event thread: All characters who participate in at least one Event thread will receive a free in-character perk of the player choosing for no XP! These can be enchanted items, a sphere level, a clause, or something else that benefits the character. If you aren't sure if your idea will work, contact an admin.
  • Those who start an Event thread: All players who create an Event thread that gets at least one other character to join will get the award detailed above plus 10xp! Even if the thread doesn't finish by the end of the month!
  • One lucky Event thread: At the end of the month, one lucky thread will be chosen as our winner and its participants will each gain (in addition to the above prizes) a choice of either one their characters to playing a pivotal role in a future SWP or a bonus 25xp.

We hope our players will join us for this event and have tons of fun with this event!

As always, if anyone has any questions/comments/criticisms please feel free to let us know!
