Fourth Wall Event Update Redux

There's a loud, furious squawking from the skies of the second district. The shadow that's been shooting across the sky pauses in midair, then plummets suddenly to the ground, stopping in front of the fountains. After a moment, it resolves itself into something brightly colored and winged, carrying a staff and wearing what looks to be a book and a sorcerer's hat on its head. Those of you who've taken a good look at Sora and Riku's Dream Eater guide may recognize it as Spellican.

It waves its staff and screeches angrily. After looking around and making sure it's got everyone's attention, it raises it staff. Evidently all it wanted was an audience.

A pool of darkness forms on the ground below it. Those who have been in the dream world for a while may not have recognized Spellican, but the four large shadows rising from the darkness certainly look familiar: Hockomonkey, Queen Buzzerfly, the Meta, and Nightmare Moon. The four large Nightmares pause for a moment, then scatter quick as blinking. In that moment, the pool of darkness and Spellican disappear too, their work done for now.

Four large and powerful Nightmares are now loose in Traverse Town.

Good luck.

OOC

Did you really think you'd be getting through this event without a boss fight? I sure hope not, because now you have four.

Here's how this will work:

- For the new players: boss fights play out like small D&D campaigns, in which characters' successes and failures are determined by mod dice roll. For examples of what we mean and to do some reading on what you're about to face, check the boss fight tag.

- There will be one boss near the doors in the First District, one in the Third District, one in the Fountain Plaza in the Fourth District, and one in the greenhouse in the Fifth District. No telling which one will be where~

- There will be several hours IC time for characters to react to Spellican's spell and try to plan, or at least batten down the hatches, before the bosses resurface. Actual boss logs will go up tonight or tomorrow. You may only have one character per boss fight, and one character cannot be in multiple boss fights, since they'll be happening concurrently.

- There is no character cap and no tag order on boss threads; however, we do ask that you tag at least once per round per day in a boss thread. The boss will tag every day; each boss tag will start a new round.

- If your character is injured or just doesn't want to be there, they will be able to leave the area of the boss fight. They will not be able to participate in any other boss fights, and they will not be able to rejoin the fight. Once you're out, you're out.

- Because of the way boss fights are structured, it is entirely possible for a boss to win. If characters make poor tactical decisions, or if too many people leave a boss area, or if the majority of characters in the boss fight simply stop tagging, the boss will win that fight. At that point, the still-living boss will go join one of its fellow bosses in its fight. Basically, you're encouraged to participate and you're allowed to pull your character from a fight, but leaving once you've started will have consequences for the people you leave behind.

If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment here or ask a mod. Have fun, guys!
