Teenagers (age 13-18) will be awakening on August 31st to find that they have been locked in a car with a partner of the opposite sex, parked atop Mayfield's newest landmark: Makeout Point! The summit of Mount Bonanza, despite not having existed before today, is a popular spot for Mayfield's teenagers to get up to all sorts of risque activities, ranging from hand-holding to, if you're feeling particularly naughty, cheek-kissing. The car will remain locked for five hours, leaving you and your partner alone for the evening with nothing but each other.
Adults are in a similar bind- but instead of Makeout Point, the two of you will be locked in your bedroom together. Like teenagers, adult players may pick their own partners; we encourage you to stick with your spouses, but with certain characters inactive, hiatusing, or married to drones, we understand this isn't feasible. If you'd rather randomize it, we can do that too. As with the teenagers, adults will be trapped in their bedrooms for five hours with only each other for company; doors and windows will be locked and unbreakable.
Kids (age 13 or below) and Pets, meanwhile, will be spending a lovely evening at Mayfield Daycare Center under the supervision of Jane and John Smith. As with the cars and bedrooms, the Daycare is inescapable- unlike the former two, however, children and pets will not be paired up, and will instead be trapped as a collective group. The Daycare is comprised of several play rooms as well as an outdoor playground, but will be subject to the same looping effect that normally binds the rest of the town. Characters will not be able to advance more than a few yards away from the Daycare grounds before instantly warping to the other side of the grounds.
Although the event will begin at midnight and posting/commenting will happen for a good week or so, the actual IC time that it will run will be 8:00 PM to 1:00 AM Tuesday. Smut may be likely for certain pairings, and that's perfectly acceptable! However, as with all R-rated content, we ask that you keep it private. Same-sex pairings will not be permitted.
You are free to use AIM or other channels of communication to decide pairings; if you already have your pairings decided, comment here and we'll mark it down (obviously, don't do so if you don't have the other player's permission yet). If you don't have any specific pairing in mind, comment here and other players may reply asking if you'd like to be paired. If your character still has not been paired by the end of signups (right up until the event start), we will randomize.
Characters who do not participate in this event will remain in Mayfield as normal, although they may notice the absence of the majority of their peers. They will not find anyone in bedrooms, Makeout Point, or the Daycare; it will be as if participating characters have disappeared from the town completely.
As always, if you have any comments, questions, or complaints, be sure to post them here.]
EDIT: Our bad, you guys! We intended the event to start at Monday at midnight, but a word got left out there. We'd rather continue to hold off until then to give more time to organize. However, if you've already started a thread, it's fine. Just consider it forward dated! As for everyone else, the event will start at 12:00 am PST Monday the 31st.
