Announce Post #3286: The Winter is Here

edited December 2022 in Announce Posts
The Frost Spite is a little bit miffed with the Basin of Life for reasons that will be clear from a forthcoming event post, but as a result: snow!

Magnagorans will recognise this particular snow from some of their past winter balls and other snow-related shenanigans, but it is new for all the other organisations. You can find actual snow in outdoor rooms of your organisations if the environment makes sense for it to be there (urban and forest generally). You can shovel it, jump into it, and most importantly make snowmen!

The snowmen come in three variations: failures, epics, and common. Failures happen when you try to create something you cannot possibly reproduce for any reason. Epics are more difficult snowmen, usually of powerful or historic beings of the given organisation, or simply something rather complex. Common ones are, as the name suggests, common peronas or creatures of that organisation. Why are we explaining this? Because if you like, you can make suggestions for shapes to add on the forums (where this post will get automatically syndicated)! Divine and their priests and related creatures are the only shapes off the table. Suggest shapes for failures, epics, or commons and we'll take a look once in a while and see what we can add.

The weather has been set to be colder across the entire Basin but not so much as to make travel too difficult. It's just what cold enough for snow to exist.

Hope you enjoy!

Ps. Player pets/dwellers are also off the table, sorry!


  • Have ideas for new shapes? Add them here!
  • Does Xynthin count as a Divine entity?

    Alternatively, a (snow) leopard might be purrfect as a common shape. (I am sorry for puns)

    pronouns: they/them
  • Serenwilde ideas:

    a snow cheuped
    a snow squirrel
    a centaur colt holding Cotuhe's Arrow (or a flower)
    a henge stone of snow carved with wodesigns
    a snow opossum perching on a branch
    a snow peacock with icy claws extended (from Ethereal rather than Maylean order beast)
    phases and manifestations on Mother Moon's aetherbubble (multiple)
    a beaming Tore Niskanen with two fingers to her forehead

    a dual-headed snow amphista; gravity befalling your ambitious struggle to manifest something sinuous and incorporeal out of an ever-changing medium.
    Ilmdria Farirue and Poet Toledil; the daunting task of capturing the spirit of these soultwins leading to a most muddled shape.
    the Sibylline Seed; its intricacies beyond your ken without fae-wine on your tongue.

    Xynthin would count as a historical figure. A leopard would not, as a snowy one specifically would be based on *someone's* pet and those are off the table too. There is, however, a snowcat there!

    Keep them coming, we'll review and add things in one go and update here when it happens.
  • Lots of new snowmen for Glomdoring and Seren have gone in. More on the way!
  • Celest, Gaudiguch, Hallifax, and Magnagora have all received a lot of new shapes as well now. Enjoy!
