  1. It's that time of year again: time to pay a visit to the Weelond Oktoberfest! Weelond’s annual Oktoberfest celebration features food and drink, contests of skill, games and amusements, traditional/historical costumes, food and drink (did we mention food and drink?), and more. So regardless of where you’re from, come to Weelond and have some fun! Rules: Your entry should showcase an activity at the Weelond Oktoberfest, and this year's emphasis is on characters and stories. Introduce us to an interesting character at the Oktoberfest or the story of your character taking part in the festivities. Sample activities at this year's Oktoberfest include keg tapping, keg tossing, stein hoisting, pretzel and sausage eating, log sawing, musket shooting, equestrian competition, musical bands, dancing, arts and crafts, pumpkin painting, and costume contests, as well as the usual assortment of butchers and brewers selling their wares. In addition to posting your entry in the forum (ideally with a [W-OKT] tag in the title), please post a link to your build in this thread and in the Weelond settlement thread. Entries must be posted by October 28. Categories: Categories are Characters, Stories, Events, and Structures. Identify what category you're entering when you post your entry. Category definitions are loose; just pick what makes sense for your build. Entries will be judged on presentation, quality of build, story, fit with Weelond's architectural style, and fit with the Oktoberfest/festival theme. The only size requirement is an 8x8 minimum. Prizes: The top three entries in each category will earn 100DBs for 1st place, 50DBs for 2nd, and 25DBs for 3rd. An additional 100/50/25 DBs will be awarded to the overall best three entries. Weelond will also reimburse the builder for licensing costs for any property entry licensed through the EGS. Weelond also offers to purchase (at 3x the license cost) any licensable property a builder does not wish to license.

  3. Taking a break from the Octoberfest festivities, the to-be crew of the Aguila collect the delicious insides of a pumpkin.
  4. Last year at this time tensions were running high in the Brick Seas, but this year there is much to celebrate. There is peace across the seas, and trade and adventure are resuming in earnest. There has even been the crowning of a soccer champion. What better way to celebrate than to pay a visit to the Weelond Octoberfest!

  5. Octoberfest : The One Drink ! Apple Cider for all ! During Weelond Octoberfest, The MAESTRO Trade Company invested in a small beverage commerce in order to sell its famous Apple Cider. Now the tavern is open and has reach record sales during the Octoberfest festivities ! A very good start for the company ! The advertising in front of the tavern was probably for something in here. This is what we can read : "One drink to rule them all, One drink to find you, One drink to bring them all, and in tipsiness bind you" "Apple Cider !" Probably the epicness of this slogan made raise the sales at this record. The crowded street in front of the tavern is a good illustration of its success : Will be licensed as a small commerce in Weelond. C&Cs are welcome, thank you !
  6. The Surgeon had finally gotten his new clinic in Weelond, and the Octoberfest crowd had given him a running start. It was amazing what alcohol could bring out in people. Or rather amplified. Courage, heartache, foolhardiness. Sometimes all at the same time. The clinic had it's own garden where plants were grown for medicinal purposes. For a reduced fee, patients gets to try the latest experimental treatments. The octoberfest unfolded all over Weelond, a few had even found their way onto the Clinics property, much to the doctors dismay. Victor Servadac had provided the drawings for the clinic. Here is a detail shot of the top floor exterior. The inside was open and let in a lot of light. Using a lot of small glass panes was effective. And more importantly, cheaper than a few big windows. The war had pushed the innovation for medical tools, and even if some of them looks cruel, procedure time had become significantly shorter. Reconvalescence and observation of patients during, and after treatment is an important aspect of finding consistent procedures that works on a wide array of people. Some of what the clinic provides is hot water tank treatment for matters of the mind, eye patch treatment to get that pirate look, and hooks to replace misplaced hands. This is my 2017 Octoberfest minichallenge entry. I plan to license this as a medium education, given the nature of treaments provided.
  7. It is the annual Octoberfest over in Weelond. Sea Rats bring over a new game that involves drinking and cannon balls. Beach Ball by dr_spock_888, on Flickr
  8. To outsiders it might look like a tense time in Eslandola, what with the attack on the treasure fleet and the war with Mardier, but we also like to party.

    [ESL] Turtle Race

    The turtle race at the annual Weelond Octoberfest always was a lot of fun. Bella Cardena was the lady in charge of the event... Bets could be place, food could be bought and of course a lot of wine and beer was consumed as well. All for he fun of the people. And some money, of course. Those turtles had to eat, after all. Within a day Bella Cardena made more than many labourers made in a month. That was during Octoberfest, which lasted quite a few days. And the best thing was... Turtle Races in Weelond did not only take place in October. They actually did every Sunday and had made Bella quite a rich businesswoman. But someone else profited as well. Bella had a long-term contract with Román Fontonajo, who had helped her in her early days, when there were no turtle enthusiasts in Weelond. Román delivered food, wine, beer - and of course new turtles whenever they were needed.
  11. A juggler has been busy entertaining the attendees at Octoberfest in Weelond. The attendees come dressed in all sorts of historical outfits, though some of the folks are less inclined to participate in history and just come in their normal clothes. After refreshments, the juggler increased the danger of his act.
  12. Angus and Dougal Macalister, brothers from the highland region of Corrington, have recently arrived in Weelond looking for work. Former soldiers from one of Corrington's famed highland regiments, the two have heard rumours that Eslandolan employers may be recruiting experienced soldiers. On arriving in Weelond, the pair found Oktoberfest in full swing. Seeing an opportunity to both make a little money, and at the same time market themselves, the pair donned their former regimental uniforms and are performing traditional highland sword dancing for the crowds!
  13. Octoberfest is a great opportunity to undust skills and sports that have faded with time. Sword and shield fighting is not a skill used anymore in war, but there are those who still have it mastered. Octoberfest allows them the opportunity to compete once again.
