MOUNT ADURO IS ERUPTING!
Everyone watch out! Ho'ohiki's very own Mt. Aduro is acting a bit testy today - and is erupting! Thankfully Ho'ohiki has survived a number of these eruptions, so just hunker down, collect some ash, and pitch in to help rescue some Pokémon!

BREAKING NEWS: MT. ADURO ERUPTING!
Citizens asked to help protect their island in the aftermath!
It was cold the day the earth came to life. A steep crescendo of explosions, one after another, broke through the early morning hours and rocketed outwards. A plume of ash soared into the air, blocking out the rise of the sun and sending thick rivulets of ash to fall all across the island. Shortly after, the explosions began a tremor that shook the island, an earthquake of sizable proportion rocking the parts of Ho'ohiki the volcano itself couldn't touch. Construction sites were decimated as Pokémon ran for the hills, fear and confusion controlling their movements. As the earthquake hit, large waves rolled through the sea, pelting Piscari and throwing sirens into action, calling out in warning across Okeanos. While some may see this as the end of the world, many older individuals just see it as another day on this blessed island.

What does this mean for the people of Ho'ohiki? It means there's a lot to get done! There will be new jobs cropping up due to the eruption, as people and organizations seek help to cover a wide range of problems. New weather conditions have been reported as a result of the eruption, providing new dangers in Journey threads and new benefits during Interaction Threads. All sorts of exciting things await as the volcano erupts, sending the island and her people into high gear!

9/11/2017: It should be noted that the Volcano is calming down! Scientists believe the seismic event will be ending October 31st at 11:59pm EST. So make sure to collect as much ash as you can before the event is over for good! Jobs will still be allowed to continue as long as it takes but no new participants may enter after it is over.



HO'OHIKI NEEDS YOUR HELP:
New Jobs available for every Class!
The rules for jobs are simple. You may take a job regardless of your journey thread location. This means if you are in Odonton you can take the jobs in the Milia. You may only have 1 character join per job and characters may only join 1 job at a time. Ex: Grimmrose and Vicktor cannot take a job together and Grimmrose cannot take 2 jobs at the same time. Otherwise its all about having fun and helping Ho'ohiki. However jobs that go untaken may cause odd things to happen in the future.

NEW EVENT-EXCLUSIVE WEATHERS!
Journey threads may experience Ash Fall or Lava Flow Weather!
Along with all the jobs that comes with this natural disaster, two new weather conditions have sprouted up due to the Volcano's eruption. Each Weather brings with it advantages and disadvantages in some way shape or form during Journey threads, while some require your character to be in a special location to spawn. The information below outlines what the weathers do along with how they can be counteracted if someone would rather not experience them during a journey thread.

user posted image
The first weather is also the most common: Ash Fall. All across Ho'ohiki, from Okeanos to Stipes, ash has started to fall from the sky in thick clumps. This has been some of the largest ash fall on record, and not even the Ten-Thousand Steps, towering in the air, are free from the ash cloud. Ash Fall provides a -10% to Accuracy during Pokémon Battles, meaning a move that usually hits at 100% accuracy will only be hitting at 90% accuracy at maximum.

Ash has been noted to be damaging to the lungs, so researchers suggest caution should be taken to prevent the particles from being inhaled too frequently. Breathing masks are being handed out in some of the more affluent towns across Ho'ohiki to help aid in breathing, and people with asthma are suggested to stay indoors until the ash fall stops. Unfortunately, there are few options out there for Pokémon - in Hard Mode, Pokémon who use the same moves repeatedly may notice themselves becoming winded and tired from exertion.

The second weather is location-based only: Lava/Flow. Slowly seeping out of the volcano in molten hot rivulets is lava - and it is red hot, the heat given off by the goo of melted rock able to be felt from meters away. This is one of the most dangerous weathers in Ho'ohiki and is, thankfully, the least common. Lava Flow has been known to cause additional damage each turn as long as your Pokémon is out of its Pokeball, with the exception of http://s20.postimg.org/8mgphfjk9/type_fire.png Pokémon, who receive no damage and acquire a +10% to Evasion and Dodge rolls.

To completely evade the debuffs of Lava Flow and Ash Fall one can purchase Safety Goggles, a Held Item that negates debuffs provided by weather. This includes damage based attacks from weathers like Lava Flow or Hail, as well as passive debuffs such as the accuracy debuff from Ash Fall. They also provide the added bonus of making the character immune to all Powder based attacks. Safety Goggles can be purchased now at the General Store or the Marketplace in Odonton for 500₽.

To experience a weather, simply make a Journey thread! Lava Flow can only be found on Mount Aduro and Aduro Pass, while Ash Fall can be found anywhere else in Ho'ohiki. In reply to this journey thread, staff will make a post stating the weather, and the debuffs given by it. Keep in mind that not every Journey thread needs to be a battle, so if you don't feel comfortable battling in the circumstances given simply make an OOC note of this preference in your first post, and staff will strive to give you the best experience outside of a battle.

COLLECTING ASH!
Time for some event-exclusive items!
If Ash Fall weather is so pervasive, blanketing the entire island, what possible benefits could it provide? It is highly valuable, and can be transformed into beautiful flutes! People across Ho'ohiki are rapidly coming together to collect the ash falling throughout cities, towns and routes to try and snag as many of these incredibly rare items as possible.

So, how can you participate? Post here with your OOC account with the full username [EX: Ash Vernon] of the character you wish to receive a Soot Sack. Only one character per OOC account can receive a Soot Sack and collect ash; this way people with numerous characters have no advantage over those with few. These Soot Sacks are graciously handed out by the Campana Mining Company, who are eager to offer up sacks too weak to carry coal and other minerals any longer.

How do you go about collecting the Ash? Either have a Journey thread where Ash Fall is the weather, or make an Interaction thread where the first post mentions the ash falling from the sky. Either way, your character will passively pick up the ash without you having to state it in every post. Each post in a thread where Ash Fall weather is mentioned will net you 1 unit of ash. Therefore, for example, a flute that is worth 10 units will need to have 10 posts dedicated to passively collecting ash. To organize your acquisitions, post the form below with your OOC account to keep track of your threads for this event.

What do you do with the ash you collect? You get it turned into beautiful glass flutes! These flutes will do a variety of things, from waking Pokémon up or attracting stronger Pokémon to you. To exchange your ash for flutes you simply need to list under "purchasing" what you will be exchanging your posts for, along with the total number of posts needed for each item and which posts you are exchanging. Next, tag your post in the tagbox, and staff will allot you the proper amount of flutes and mark off the threads that have been used as payment.

Now, as a final note, the Soot Sack and flutes are all special to this event. Once this event is completed, the Soot Sack will become useless and the flutes will be exclusive, only being obtainable through users selling, trading, or otherwise giving them to other users. Keep this in mind if you wish to get flutes for every character, get multiple flutes, or feel like carrying on the season of giving.

I'd like to sign Jet Bishop up for this event so he can get a Soot Sack! I've talked some about an interaction thread so I'm going to hope that'll happen, if not I'm down for some soloing on it. It would be fun to have a flute for Jet to play in his travels, I didn't think to have him bring a regular one. XD Done
