Strange Eggs About

Fri Apr 18, 2014, 11:23 PM

Helmy says:

Have you been noticing all of those weird eggs stashed around the campus? Well, you should -- and get to collecting them -- because they're going to be disappearing come Monday. I've been hearing there are a lot of unusual contents in them, so you may be lucky... or you may not be.

  • White eggs are hard boiled, and make for a good snack or for coloring.

  • Purple eggs will scream when you crack them open. It's loud and startling!

  • Green eggs contain money. Hohoho! Get something new in Moonseed Lane.

  • Orange eggs will hatch into chicks if you incubate them. Griffin chicks, that is.

  • Brown eggs will lick you when you pick them up.

  • Blue eggs like repeating anything said around them. Don't share any secrets, or you'll be sorry.

  • Silver eggs have another egg inside. And an egg inside that. And an egg inside that. Does it ever end?!

  • Black eggs have a void inside them that will suck you up and spit you out somewhere else on campus. Free travel?

  • Red eggs have candy inside them. Yay! That feels a bit more traditional.

  • Gold eggs have bugs inside. Worms, cockroaches, snails, EW. Don't eat those!

  • Gray eggs will grow legs and walk around. Entertaining to watch, and sort of like a pet rock that moves.

Draw or write about your character encountering any number of strange eggs appearing on the campus. Submit this to the Sanctioned Events folder to get 1.5x EXP!
Deadline: May 1, 2014


Interested in joining an RP event? Come to us in the chatroom to wander around the campus and pick up eggs! You can throw them at people too, that's always fun.

When: April 20th at 6:00 PM Central Time

If you haven't tried your student out yet, now's a good time to do it!

Quick FAQ

Please read the Group Rules and FAQ for more information.

:bulletred: How do I join the group? :bulletred:
Fill out the application and submit it to the Students folder. If the application is accepted, you will be sent an invite.

:bulletred: Do you have to be an artist to join? :bulletred:
No - you can ask someone else to make your application picture (or commission it). Other submissions can be roleplays or stories.

:bulletred: What are the activity requirements of the group? :bulletred:
One deviation (roleplay, story, art) per three months. You don't have to pass your classes but your student might be sad... granted, it's not hard to pass a class if you turn in a quick picture, short roleplay, or short story twice in three months.

:bulletred: When is the chatroom usually active? :bulletred:
6:00 PM - 11:00 PM CST is usually when we have the most people.

:bulletred: How many classes do I have to register for? :bulletred:
Minimum one, maximum three.

:bulletred: What creatures can I use for my student? :bulletred:
Anything supernatural or paranormal - but ensure the character isn't too strong as a beginner.

:bulletred: What submissions do you accept? :bulletred:
Pretty much anything - we accept logged roleplays, short stories/long stories, artwork (traditional or digital), plushies or other traditional work of your characters -- as long as it's related to your OW character or another OW character, or the recognizable setting.

:bulletred: What is EXP used for? :bulletred:
It is most useful in tournaments, but as a general rule, EXP gauges how strong a character is in comparison to his/her/hir peers.

Hi there! viralremix invited me to join the group on a journal I wrote a couple days ago, but I just finished drawing my application and went to check the writing requirements and it said enrollment ended April 1st? Can I still enroll because I was invited?? Or is enrollment just over??

Please let me know! Thank you!
Well, I did tell you it opens June 23 in my message XD
You can hang out in the chat until then though, meeting people and interacting with the RPs.

Sorry I got confused XD (that happens with me frequently). Sorry for the confusion I'm a bit of a dummy sometimes :3 

Thanks! I will be enrolling when it opens!

Hello there! Enrollment for the April-June term has already ended; however you should be able to join when June 23rd rolls around, as that is our next opening date. 8)

Feel free to prepare for then, in the meantime!
(If Viral thinks and/or says differently, then please disregard this comment ahaha ;; )

Can someone perhaps fix the "current assignments" links? They all link to March's assignments, so I can't get to this terms'.
AWaterFox 2 days ago  Hobbyist Writer
Sorry about that! In the meantime there is a journal that's in the Blog that has the April assignments listed as well, so you can find them there, too~ 8D
NightWings99 1 day ago  Student General Artist
I found it after posting this ^^ But yeah, the links are old.
AWaterFox 1 day ago  Hobbyist Writer
I'll make sure they get updated soon~
