 † Briarwood University Event #3: Mythology Night

Halloween has finally arrived at Briarwood University, and you know what that means: time for another group event! And with the upcoming holiday and all of the entertainment it entails, the Latin club at Briarwood has worked with some of the faculty members to put together a party founded on and revolving around Greek mythology. This Hallow’s Eve, Briarwood has agreed to host its largest costume party game to date! 

In recent years, Greek mythology has surged in popularity. Books, movies, and entire series revolving around mythical Gods and Goddess of the ancient Greeks have been released at a steady rate. From Percy Jackson’s adventures to films about Poseidon and Zeus and even the hit Disney animated film, Hercules, a great deal of modern pop culture revolves around a time period in history that seemed so very advanced and intricate for ancient times. And as society’s fascination with the Greeks and their legends of Homer is at an all-time high, Briarwood’s prestigious Latin club has decided to take full advantage of this in favor of pitching an idea they’d had lying around for ages to the Briarwood board: a costume party revolving entirely around students and faculty who dress up as the Gods and Goddesses the Greeks revered so much.

After dealing with some stubborn board members who thought the idea was preposterous and wouldn’t garner enough attention for a Halloween-themed party, the Latin club held a fundraiser, gained sponsors, and eventually won over even the stingiest faculty members. So, with a solid budget and an enthusiastic team, the Latin club was able to book Briarwood’s main ballroom for such an occasion; food and beverages will be served, and a live band will be playing. The only requirement, really, is to attend dressed up as your favorite Greek mythological character. And, of course, to have the time of your life!

Please keep in mind that you do not need to dress up as a major God or Goddess; though, of course, available for anyone interested, the Latin club wishes to make sure that all partygoers are aware that all ancient Greek characters are available for use. From Zeus to Persephone to Hercules himself, so long as the character directly correlates with Greek mythology, then he/she/they will work.

A few lingering questions…

  • Are we allowed to have convos for this event? Absolutely! Feel free to have gif convos, paras, paras including more than two people, so on and so forth; as long as you’re steadily interacting with people, all is well!
  • How long will this event last in real life/OOC time? As of right now, the event is set to last roughly a week OOC time. We’ll ask people to wrap up all paras and convos they have going on in regards to this event exactly one week from the post date. While this event is going on, we ask all members to realize that time is “frozen”, or at a standstill; in layman’s terms, wait until we announce the end of the event before having your character move on with classes/homework/etc.!
  • Can I para with more than one person for this event? Of course! Para and plot with as many people as you want; just make sure your paras and convos pertaining to the event are somehow connected to Briarwood’s first football game.
  • How can I figure out which character I’d like to play?For a tentative list of various Greek mythological characters in existence, the admins advise you to skim through this page and find a mythological being that most closely suits your own character’s tastes or personality!
  • Can more than one character play the same God or Goddess? For the sake of everyone being creative and unique, we’re going to have to say no on this one. There are tons of different characters to choose from, and following this post, the admins will post a master list of which Greek mythology beings have been claimed. The list will be continuously updated as more and more members send in their preferences. So with that being said, MAKE SURE to alert the admins of your God or Goddess choice so that we can verify the spot s open for you!

If you have any further inquiries, don’t hesitate to contact either one of the admins with questions! And please, don’t forget to tag all starters pertaining to this event with “bwevent”!

Happy writing, everyone!

Come on, everyone! Send in those applications; the more characters, the merrier!


Anonymous asked:
Would it be possible to have the characters vote on things occasionally? There's always the idea of voting for people earning certain titles, like "Most Likely To Succeed" or "The Goofball" or something. I think it would be fun for the characters and the rpers. (:

The admins have actually mentioned and discussed that a few times! I’m definitely open to the idea, but I’ll make sure to speak with Admin H about it so we can get one another’s opinions on the matter!


Hey hey hey! Admin H here! Drop by and check us out, and if you’re interested, send in an app for an OC or premade character! And feel free to submit any FC requests or changes you have in mind :)
