Faint, foreign murmurs echoed through the walls of the Beast Studies building as a young-looking professor walked out of one of the classrooms. His ears were perked up, alert for anything that seemed off. Nothing appeared out of place, but a suspicious feeling hung around the hellhound as his eyes darted left and right."Ngh..." He muttered to himself, trying not to look too focused on anything. Sure, there was a strange aura present, causing his senses to be messed up, but surely it had to be just a trick of the mind. He kept track of all the creatures in his building, and his senses were rather sharp anyway. He had no enemies, either, so it's not like it was a curse..."Let's see... I think that was the last of the animals to be locked up, wasn't it?" Upton looked at his list, flipping through the pages before nodding to himself. "Alright, I suppose it's time to figure out what to do for tomorrow's class-""Woof!"The teacher jumped, a bewildered look in his eyes before he looked down. Sitting in front of him were the hellhound pups he had taken under his wing, looking at him happily. Upton let out a sigh of relief, picking up one of the puppies and rubbing behind its ear. "Hey, you scared me, Buddy. I thought you were going to kill me!" He let out a chuckle, giving the small pup a good pat on the head. "How'd you all get here? I thought I locked you up..." Upton paused, an ear flicking. "... You were locked up-"The screeching of metal hinges caused the professor's eyes to widen, before the noise of squawks, hoof steps, and other spooked sounds was heard. The sounds were soon followed by the creatures themselves, and it took a moment for Upton to register what was happening."... Oh, shit."
"Ugh... Don't worry, I'm okay. Kind of, anyway. 'Tis but a tiny cut I got away with from the stampede!
... Oh, wait, was that not what the problem is- Oh! My animals! Yes, almost all of them are gone from my building. It appears as if a phantasm
was messing around in here. There's a rumor that there's one phantasm for each department; I guess I found out that my department didn't escape that fate tonight. Now I suppose I have to round up my creatures before the next big holiday...
Ah, but I don't think even I can do that all by myself. I'll tell you what: let's play a game! No, not like a board game,
I'm not that old! Like a competition, just like the previous event. Just because I know Beast Studies is going to come out on top again. *nods* But I do need your help to get my creatures back into my building! Interested? Here, let me tell you what to do..."
November Sub-Event! Draw, write,
your character(s) rounding up (or at least, attempting to) some mythical creatures and bringing them back to the Beast Studies department!
Submissions are unlimited,
in the group can join! Make sure all submissions are in the Sanctioned Events
EXP is tallied the same as any other event. There is a 1.5x multiplier if Upton
is involved in the submission(s).
For each creature featured in your submission, you will earn points,
used for department and individual scores and ranking during this event. Docile creatures such as unicorns and phoenixes are 1-3 points, creatures such as
mermaids, gnomes, gargoyles are 4-6 points, and creatures who'll give you trouble - i
mps, dragons, fairies, demons - are 7-9 points, and large groups
give you 10 points. Featuring at least one of Upton's hellhound pups
will gain you 5 points
. However, they are near impossible to catch single-handedly, so can only be caught if two or more people are working together.
Prizes will be offered at the end of the event. Each member contributing will get one assignment pass
and a 50 EXP bonus.
The member who wins the most points will win 1000 EXP
, 4 assignment passes,
and art from Kawa-Mucchi
. There will also be a second and third place winner. Individual who contributes the most points to the highest ranking department will win an extra assignment pass and art from :Kawa-Mucchi:. More prizes may be given at the end of the month. Have fun!
This is an optional event, so members can choose to participate or not.
"So hopefully that's all the info you need. I kinda want the creatures back soon, so please hurry! I'll be looking for some myself. Oh, and remember; don't touch any unfriendly-looking animals! They're mean! Leave them be, I'll take care of them. Unless you want to risk going into the infirmary, of course. Also... make sure you don't catch any fellow students and teachers by mistake! That would be.... quite unfortunate..."
EVENT ENDS DECEMBER 1ST!
