Summer Events & Updates
Hello AoA! It's been awhile!
June is almost over, which means this is officially our third month of being open! Happy birthday folks! And to celebrate, the staff team has whipped up a phenomenal array of updates and events for you to enjoy! So let's see what's new!
The site has undergone some minor appearance adjustments this month, which can be read about here.
Gem Details have now been added to our F.A.Q.
OTM Nominations will be closing June 26. Voting will open on the 27th and close on the 29th.
We now have a Helcaraxe Board to accommodate our growing First Age populace!
We now have a Site Timeline which lists currently active threads. If your thread is not there, please feel free to update it by adding your code!
The June 2014 Timeline Announcement is here!
The announcement board has been pruned, only updates from June are now posted. Old news can be found here.
Now here is where the big update comes in, because we have a huge host of events rolling through! Let's take a look at what's new and happening:
This board is home to our permanent events and games forum, where you will always have the opportunity to win gems. One day we may get new games but for now, there are three. Mini Hunts, Shit Manwë Says and What Now? You can read about all three, and find out more about Melkor's Mayhem in general, by going here.
AoA is hosting Summer Olympics! June 24th - 28th is preliminary sign ups and once the teams are set, we jump right in with the Team Name event! After that we have all manner of games up our sleeves, from thread starter prompts and writing contests, to graphic challenges and Tolkien Bingo! You don't have to worry if you cannot make an event, or if you don't qualify for something because you have your team to help you! Every person's points is added to the team total and the team that has the most by Aug 31 gets a bonus gem!
The event lasts all summer, to give us a little extra excitement after wading through all those tiring exams and finally breaking through to the lethargic freedom of the balmy summer months! You can sign up here and learn more!
Major Scavenger Hunt
Sunday June 29th is the date for our next Major Scavenger Hunt, which is not to be confused with Melkor's Mini Hunts! (By the way there may be some Uruk Hai still lurking around so if you find them, please direct them back to Melkro via pm so they can be rehomed. Thank you!)
