The rules for the touching is very simple and, with all we do, the main point is to simply have fun. Please allow me to go over some of the basics. First of all, only official candidates are allowed to be on the sands for the touching. Those of you with stands candidate might be wondering, "Can my stands candidate sneak into the touching?" The answer is technically, yes they can. However, the staff would like to stress that IC actions = IC consequences. Anyone trying to sneak onto the sands will be given a chance to be caught. If they are, then IC punishment will follow. If you are not comfortable with the idea of your character potentionally being punished, then don't let them sneak in. Official candidates, please keep in mind that getting to touch the eggs is a privilage, not a right. When you enter the sands be sure to show your respects to Queen Andromedath and Bronze Shardamakath. They and their riders will be watching the sands very closely, so keep to your best behavior. Again, I want to stress IC actions = IC consequences. If you do anything that could be construed as harmful or disrespectful to the eggs, then swift action will follow, likely in the form of being asked to leave and additional punishments being given.
Now, onto the OOC information. Below you can see we have some beautifully colored eggs just waiting to be touched and talked to. That's right, talked to. The touching will go in rounds. The first round, you will have your candidates approach an egg and interact with it. Then, there will be a response from Isilsk of that eggs reaction to your candidate. That ends the first round. Next round you can either touch a new egg or continue to stay with that egg if you so wish. More than one candidate can be touching the same egg at a time. This works easiest if everyone assumes that their candidate is the only one touching the egg. A little hint since there are so many eggs, it may helps to make a list of the eggs at the bottom of your posts and mark which one your candidate has gone to already. For example: Egg 1, Egg 2, Egg 3, Egg 4, Egg 5
IC wise this thread is fuzzy timed to a week before the hatching, but since we want everyone to get the chance to touch the eggs as many times as possible, we're posting it now.
If you have any questions do not hesitate to shoot a PM to one of the staff members and remember....HAVE FUN!!
