July Title Banner

Why hello there! You have arrived just in time for The Colorful Skies event! The winds of Skire have picked up quite a bit and the local Gravents have decided to host this colorful kite contest and festival. There are plenty of things to do, from making your own kite for the ‘Home made kite’ contest, trying out the local cuisine, or watching the ariel whistle shows the Gravents put on. Grab your friends and come join in the fun! (Please note that the kite contest is not something we will actually be judging and is rather just a prompt idea. All prizes will be distributed via RNG as usual)


Prompt

Draw/Write your Skire Character exploring the Colorful Skies event!

  • What does your character do when they see some of these colorful and creative kites?
  • Did your character make their own for the ‘Home made kite’ contest?
  • Does your character watch the Gravents ariel shows? Or dance to some of the live music?
  • Do they find any new foods to try at the event?
  • Does your character make some new friends? New rivals? Do they get into a kite race?
  • Does your character help judge the kite contest?

Please don’t feel limited by the ideas above as it is just a general idea to help you think of what to create!

FAQ

Q: Can we ask for an extension on the prompt?
A: No, it is a month long and extending it would delay other prompts.

Q: I’m having technical issues and I can’t post before the prompt closes! Can I not enter?
A: If you have technical issues or something that delays you from entering the event before it closes on the final day, feel free to message an admin to help you out! Though we do ask, please don’t do this in the final hour of the event!

Q: If I win can I give my prize away?
A: For the purpose of this event and limiting entries, if you win the prize will only be able to be given to the winner and not gifted to someone else, sorry!

Q: Can I enter to try and help someone else win?
A: No, it is not fair for multiple people to enter on behalf of one person.

Q: When will the event end specifically?
A: This prompt will end the 7/31/2021 at Midnight PST.

Q: When will prizes be raffled off?
A: Likely a few days after the event ends. Please give us time to make sure we have everything for the raffle. We would hate to rush and miss someone’s entry.

Q: My entry was denied because it didn’t meet the requirements. Can I fix it and resubmit to try and enter?
A: Yes, as long as this is done so before the event ends. We will not count anything submitted after the event has ended.

Q: Are admin allowed to enter the event and possibly win a prize?
A: Yes, admin are allowed to enter the event so they can enjoy the community just as everyone else does! However if an admin is rolled for winning a prize, they don’t occupy a member’s chance to win! Another roll will be done so that a member can still win a prize.

If you have any other questions, please ask in our Discord FAQ section.

Entries will be due July 31st, 2021 at 11:59 PST!
