Hello, people of knockturn!
On the 28th of January, Knockturn will be holding a Chinese New Year Ball! Chinese New Year is a celebration of the new year following the lunar calendar. This year is the year of the Rooster! The reason we have animals for every year is actually from old Chinese mythology, where different creatures were racing to the jade king to be on his calendar. The animals to get there(in order of first to last) were Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig.
The first event will be the make your own spell competition. To enter, post the spells name, tier, and effect/action below. The winner will receive 25 galleons and will be decided through votes(the other prize being your spell is in game).
The second event will be the skin competition. Make a Chinese New Year themed skin; whether you decide to be one of the animals, the jade king, Chang’e (moon goddess), or just wear a kimono, you can take place in this(just make sure you are wearing Chinese new year themed skin). There will be two categories, Mythic and Traditional. Mythic consists of the creatures or jade king, Traditional consists of traditional Chinese new year clothing. To enter, put your IGN, Rp name, and category into it’s designated hopper. The winner of each category will receive 45 galleons and will be decided through votes.
The third event will be the banner competition. Use colors to create of all sorts to create banners to celebrate the new year! Pictures of roosters, fireworks, the moon, whatever! To enter, put your banner in the hopper labeled with your ign. The winner will receive 30 galleons and the winning banner will be given to all participants. The winner will be decided by the event host.
Note that if you either use black in your banner or use black in you skin(other than for hair), it will be disqualified. This is because black is a symbol of death, something that the Chinese try largely to avoid on this holiday as well as using it anywhere on or with anything.
The ball will have events at the following times (EST) (PM):
7:00 - The ball will start.
7:45 - The spells will be performed.
7:55 - The skins will be shown.
8:00 - The winning banner will be announced and shared.
8:15 - The winning spell will be announced.
