Weatherwatch on the Day of Change
In the far western reaches of Neithernor, the light of dawn slowly breaks over the floating islands that the Weatherwatch call home. The Ascension drifts faintly in the morning breeze, pulling against the moorings that keep it at rest. Sounds of the ocean rise up from below as creatures from across the island, magimysts included, awaken from their nightly slumber.
This scene isn’t too different from hundreds of others in Neither: the sun rises from the west, as it does every day, and with it brings a new day. But this new day is special because it is the Day of Change. While time is different between Neithernor and the mundane world, the air hums with the power of the day. As the Weatherwatchers awaken and begin their day, they also begin preparations for the day’s celebrations.
Hello, @Weatherwatch! I hope you have all been keeping well despite, you know, the pandemic and all. As many of you may know, next Wednesday (23 September) is the Day of Change. It’s been a huge part of our community since 2017 when Deidre defeated the Storm. Because of the events of that day, we do our best to celebrate our victories of the past and look forward to what is to come. In light of that, I wanted to invite you all to think about how us Weatherwatchers might celebrate a momentous day like the Day of Change.
We talked about this idea a bit in our thread from last year where we explored what the home of the Watchers looks like, but we’ve never really flushed it out. Do we have a day-long festival with a sports tournament (of undetermined type – we’ve played around with the idea of a Weatherwath sport, but we’ve never been able to come up with on) or some other kinds of festivities? Do we spend the day cleaning up our airship fleet so that they are ready for the year to come? Do we just chill out and do nothing? In short, what do Watchers do on the Day of Change?
Please post your ideas below so we can explore them together! I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!
