    Bombs rained down with each marching step, every click of a round loading into the chamber. Shrapnel was even deadlier than bullets, you could eye down the gun that would bring your death, yet you couldn't see the shards of metal coming towards your body faster[​IMG] than lighting to deliver the blow. The soldier sat there, frozen as a statue as his bunk-mate charged ahead, screaming and following blindly yet knowing. Another pair of hands hauled him up and screamed in his ear, spitting blood, gunpowder, spit, and grit onto his face, both the material and feeling, "Soldier, get moving, you're too far in hell now[​IMG] to stop." And with that, the slug of boots kept that tune in his heart to have his own marching forward. Left and right, forward and behind, death was closing in, he chuckled as he could recognize and place the severed limb lying at his feet to it's owner several yards away. He was looking down at the grenade that was there, tick, tick, tick, click, click, and as it grew in interval slowly it turned into a spoon? A red and white cover was laying underneath the glass of lemonade with the gre- spoon stirring it, his eyes met the soft ones sitting across from him. A small voice asked, "Are you ok?" The man shook his head, smiled, and replied "Yes" as a comfort to the fireworks exploding above them.

    A bit of a longer little mood-setting story hmm?
    You all know what this means[​IMG], another event! Yay! (right?)

    Before I roll into this event's details I am glad to say that Mr. Papa Bear aka Ursa has granted me permission to officially make events without having to wait for revamp since we haven't had one since Easter.

    I hadn't thought of making a 4th of July event until yesterday when I asked most of you on the server and you had asked "What is the 4th of July event gonna be" and to put it simply I was a little thrown for a loop, I hadn't expected it to be well... anticipated. Now since it is a day of remembering the independence achieved by soldiers specifically American but hey everyone can join in) I would like to not host a PVP event and more of a gathering of sorts.
    (To be honest I wouldn't have been able to anyways since the Event server isn't up yet but hey we won't focus[​IMG] on that.)
    Let's get into the Event Details shall we?

    Event Details

    The Event is going to be a BBQ Gathering of sorts. (Since that is usually what most Americans do when they cannot go out on the Fourth of July, kick back with the family and have BBQ)
    There will be multiple types of new NPCs around the map in lit up, specific areas (Which you will have to find ;)) with tags under their name so you know if they are the correct ones or not, that you have to hunt and kill.
    These NPCs will drop food unique to themselves[​IMG] and their themes, you will return[​IMG] to the BBQ area Behind the flag at gates. to cook and eat them.
    You are not allowed to steal anyone elses food and or coal, if so you will be kicked and removed from the event for good.
    I know I know, don't worry, that's not all.
    Every hour I will be firing off Fireworks and with them, small gifts will fall. Nothing to race around and get excited about but as I said I am focusing[​IMG] on more of a gathering event than anything else.

    I wanted to make this type of an event as a sort of break from the constant farming, fighting dungeons and everything everyone is forced to do on loop as there is nothing else currently to do. It gives you all a chance to settle in one place and interact with everyone, sit down, eat some virtual food and talk to your fellow players as respectable, compatible[​IMG], and in-common human beings. At least I hope.


    This Event will last[​IMG] from 1:00 pm PST (Pacific Standard Time) to 6:00 pm PST on July 4th (PST).

    Thank You and have a happy Independence Day

    ~

    Yeah, it was a beautiful day outside and the meat was great, especially the ragout rabbit. We couldn't see the fire works but instead we....

    Okay, I'll stop :p

    Edit:
    The independence day event in ARPG would have been cooler if there was a "BBQ gone wrong' kind of style bringing some sort of NPC invasion and a player united battle. Just like the movie ^^

    Everyone seemed to genuinely enjoy the event, some were a bit ruffled when I set off the fireworks they all didn't receive a gift, (many opportunities later I'm pretty sure they all were able to get something), on my part I had to spiff up the notability of the NPCS areas and give hints due to their odd placings even thought they were near the road, and there were the occasional persons who wouldn't listen and ran around the work space but in general it was a fun time, the fireworks were great, the drops were cute and simple, the BBQ area was a fun hang out, and it was a laid back good time.

    But I'll let them speak for themselves. For I am not always correct by what my eyes see.

    The event was amazing. I truly appreciate Madi for taking the time to do these events. Especially considering the 4th is a big holiday to spend with family to celebrate.

    As a life time american. I would like to correct you that our 4th of July typically involves fireworks and a lot of beer.
    Not much BBQ, some family, but typically the goal is to get trashed while lighting off fireworks.
