OOC:"It is often said the best way to a warrior's heart, aside from literally, is through his stomach. There are those around us that serve and protect us day in, and day out. Be they the obvious guards patrolling the streets, or the unseen vigilant force that does their duties without us even aware.
Some are fortunate to watch over their own homes. Some are less so, but do so in service to protect and watch over places far from it.
Let us take time to remember those that watch and guard over us; and more importantly, let us show them thanks in remembrance as we also have some fun with it!
For a brief time, I, Sir Grimandr, will be holding a Watch Care(fully) Package drive. Where you, dear reader, may be able to gather supplies to put in a care package that will be sent to various groups, divisions, and organizations that are about the land whom protect and stand vigilant over all goodly folks day in and day out.
A small group of volunteers will be judging the items within, and the three, top picked packages will receive a reward stemming from 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
To volunteer to vote; or for applications, inquiries, comments, or otherwise, please reach out to Sir Grimandr Avenkor, High Warden of the Vigilant One!"
- Sir Grimandr Avenkor, High Warden of Lord Helm.
This event will be going on from June 15th (00:01 CST) until June 30th (23:59 CST). The idea is to gather a crate/pack full of items that you would want to send out to those protecting and serving throughout the lands. This should be things like food, books (songs, poems, etc.), hygiene, and so forth. Bonus points for those that get creative and make their own material. (Come all ye bakers, bards, smiths, and other folks of craft!) In theory, imagine if you were sending this to troops overseas as a care package.
If you would like to volunteer to be on the voting panel (I would like AT LEAST two others at least to help me judge) then mail me ICly on Grimandr, or PM me on the forums here. Votes will be based on things such as how practical the overall package is, how beneficial it is, how unique it is, bountifulness, and what is provided overall.
Do note that you do not have to make your own items. It is perfectly acceptable to find material that already exists and submit it.
