I see. I thought so, with regards to character interaction. Not like he has really interacted with Karina either too. But I think he at least knows her name due to The being of many names calling everyone by their name early in the rp I think.
So a bit of background world building information for you all to work into your next posts if you like:
The current day in the RP is the 1st of month of Olfaccium (The month of Smell). The 1st of each month is celebrated with a festival commemorating what the month represents.
So for Olfaccium, that would mean lots of flowers, perfumes, fragrant smelling foods with plenty of spices. Flower petals everywhere. Face painting for the kids (The paints had added perfumes). Games where kids throw scented bags of chalks. Storytellers tossing powders of different aromas as a means to enhance their stories...
However, because of everything that happened the previous day. Barely anything has been set up. Most people are in shock still. So it will be a pretty lack luster festival.
Figured it would be a good idea to remind others of that plot point with the seed. It's been a while since it's been brought up I think.
Also, the festival sounds like an interesting bit of scenery. Are you thinking of some sort of set piece here or is this just my brain addled by action movies cobbling something up? Also of curiosity would the Gusttium festival be very similar but with more food and perhaps an emphasis on like textures along with flavors?
Haven't thought about Gusttium too much yet, but yeah. Also food competitions and also people bringing food from all over the land.
In regards to the current festival, I'm thinking it will be more like scattered decoration half set up. Wide eye people paying little to no mind to the ones trying celebrate (most everybody is traumatized from the previous day, while the ones trying to celebrate are trying to forget what happened and act like nothing was wrong. Then there's the issue with the Cult going around and taking all the food from vendors that they could find, while everyone was going crazy the previous day. Another reason why people aren't celebrating, they are panicking.
The main idea here is, that your characters should be going into town thinking it eerie/weird how almost nobody is celebrating. That today is the most depressing Olfaccium Festival that they ever saw. The characters should understand why that is, but still eerie. I may have a story teller pop in though (one that nobody is listening too or they're standing there wide eye, half listening). Might throw in some riddled lore there.
Must be that spring energy. I'm waiting on Fetzen to respond, but I'm willing to go ahead continue this conversation with 13's character, since there's really not going besides reaching the tower and getting attacked. Gonna take that brief interlude to get some interaction done.
