September Activities

Posted 1 September 2021, 18:37:37 PDT by Starbask

Hi everyone! We wanted to do some activities back in July and August, and it’s already September! Time flies. So we’ll be running these activities from now until the end of September!

Overarching Rules
  • Activity answers/responses will be submitted via claim(s) using the appropriate activity form provided alongside each activity below.
  • Claims can be submitted from now until September 30th, 11:59pm PST.
  • Activity claims submitted after 11:59pm PST on September 30th will be rejected.
  • There will be no edit period past the activity end time, so please do not submit or resubmit anything late!
  • That said, if you submit an activity claim and it gets rejected for whatever reason (not enough syllables, missing words, etc.) you’re still free to resubmit a new claim with revisions as long as it’s before the activity end time stated above.
Activity #1 : Haiku Hijinx

Create some regional or Eyre related haiku!

Guidelines

  • You can earn a maximum of 2EC from doing this activity (6 haiku max).
  • Every 3 haiku submitted is equal to 1 EC earned.
  • Each haiku must have the correct number of syllables! (5 on the first line, 7 on the second line, and 5 on the third)
  • Every haiku must be written in English.
    • It doesn’t need to be perfect English as long as the theme you’re trying to get across is clear! (Example: Don’t write a Palu’au Islands beach themed haiku and then put the theme down as mountains!)
  • Please do not use region names or location/character names in general in these haiku. You can list your region in the theme section of the form, but just not the haiku itself!
    • We were having difficulties with the number of syllables in regional names not coming across right in counters so we’re requesting names be avoided!

Flower fields in bloom
Blossoms smell so fragrant now
Time to relax here

Small paws running off.
Help! They stole my crops so fast!

Final notables

Both activities should be submitted via claim(s). If you want to submit all your haiku and word lists in one claim then you may, or you can submit them in sets of 3 haiku or word lists per claim. This isn’t meant to be a high pressure activity, just something small and fun to earn a little extra EC.
