Special Events 2010-2011.

28th July 2010 - 28th July 2011.

Halloween '10 — Board-wide Pumpkin Hunt
Hidden across the site were seven miniature pumpkins. Each pumpkin had a letter, and members had to hover over it and write it down because after they found all seven the participants had to unscramble the letters and figure out the halloween-themed word. This word was found to be 'Samhain' by Bishop and Vero. Well done, guys!

April Fools '11 — New word filter for the IC areas
As soon as midnight hit 19 frequently used words around Relic Lore were automatically changed to display something else in every IC post, creating some really, really interesting effects. From nicknaming some characters to swapping gender-specific pronouns around it led to very confusing and hilarious posts as well as some fantastic quotes. See below for a full listing of the word changes and some of the favourite quotes from posts after these effects.
He → she, his → her, Wolf → Cat, Indru → BAMF, Cori → GOOFBALL, Ruiko → THE ROCK, Alexander → BEAST, Borden → RENEGADE, Marsh → SILENT, Kiche → FATMAN, Makita → KAUDA, Triell → TREE-EL, snow → lava, eyes → orbs, licked → mauled, fur → feathers, Swift River → Slow River, Midnight Plateau → Midday Plateau, Grizzly Hollow → Polar Hollow.
BAMF nodded in praise, "good job, TREE-EL."Indru
He was young yet, but it was the perfect time to start making a cat out of him.Marsh
Despite all her fears and lack of courage, she would follow THE ROCK anywhere.Kinis
"I don't much like the life of a lone cat, but it must be harder for you. Why don't you go back and live with BAMF?"Ranger
So, maybe he was right. BEAST was the best pack leader around.Kinis

Go Wild! '11 — Post Prompt Challenge
A post prompt challenge to test RoW's character's instincts, contest participants were given six common wolf behaviors that were not utilized often to represent in separate threads: howling, digging, playing, scent-marking, hunting and swimming. Each thread required a minimum of 10 posts altogether, and player's had from March 22nd until April 22nd to complete the challenge. Go Wild! '11's winner was Switch, who had a site skin dedicated to her character Triell, donated by the talented Sarah.

Easter '11 — Board-wide Easter Egg Hunt
Hidden across the site were seven miniature easter eggs. Each egg had a letter, and members had to hover over it and write it down. After they found all seven eggs, the participants had to unscramble the letters and figure out the easter-themed word. This word was found to be 'Egg Hunt' by Vami and Switch. Congratulations!

Yearbook '12 — Member-made celebration for RoW's second birthday

New Year's Resolutions '13 — Post Prompt Challenge
The new year brought about a fresh new start, and with new beginnings, wolves are given the chance to make some new resolutions: undertake a change they want to make, do something they have never done, meet someone new, or make a friend.

Valentine's Day '13 — Post Prompt Challenge
Valentine's Day calls for love, chocolate, and teddy bears galore! But, we don't have chocolate (besides, it's lethal!) and we don't want to cuddle the grizzlies, so that leaves us with one thing: love! It's not about always spending time with your mate, it's about giving a stranger a little bit of appreciation. Wolves who signed up were randomly paired with one another for a most amusing post prompt challenge.

April Fools '13 — Word Swap
Select words related to wolves and canines were replaced by feline-based words instead; and, some of the established packs were named their opposites (No Man's Land, Polar Bear Hollow, Slow River, __________ and __________). Characters all around Relic Lore were joining gangs and hacking into the night sky! The word "Leader" was also changed out for the word "Lowest" and vice-versa to cause some extra chaos!

Yearbook '13 — Member-made celebration for RoW's third birthday
Continuing the birthday celebration tradition RoW's members nominated wolves for the superlative categories supplied and submitted their pack characters for the 2013 Yearbook. As members enjoyed cryptograms, a posting contest, "cake walk," and a puzzle, some Relic Lore wolves enjoyed this rather amusing Random Event. Winners to be announced.

Special Events 2013-2014.

28th July 2013 - 28th July 2014.

Halloween '13 — Trick or Treat Random Events!
In celebration of this spooky holiday, members were given a number of "goodie bags" to choose from, each contained a special Random Event which put characters against nose-loving spiders, unguarded caches, an old crone she-wolf who mysteriously appears to speak a few words (a curse?) before disappearing, crow attacks, screeching bats, strange noises in the woods, bright orange pumpkin patches, strange figures in the mist, an enigmatic black lynx, a dead elk that had its skull missing with the nearby trees around it having blood smeared on them, finding a shiny gold rock in the ground, and a bright and full moon that is suddenly intercepted by a shadow! Spooky!

Winter is Coming '13 — Boardwide Plot
2014 was the year the winter was harsher than it had ever been before. All throughout the Lore prey became limited as the herds migrated beyond the realm, forcing wolves to fend for themselves and seek out other researches in order to survive the season.

April Fool's '14 — Welcome to the Wildwoods (Werewolf/Vampire RPG)
For the day of pranks, tricks, and gags, Staff Members Sarah and Grey converted the site into an alternate universe in which characters were changed into vampires, werewolves, and mortal humans who inhabited The Wildwoods boardwalk in New Jersey. In addition, several words were changed.
wolf → heathen, pack → cult, blood → oh-so-savory-and-metallic ichor, Oak Tree Bend → Oakheart Lodge, Cut Rock River → Cut-Throat Rebels, Secret Woodlands → Order of Secrets, Whisper Coven → Whisper Coven, Willow Ridge → Archer Estate, Hollowheart Keep → Hollowheart Manor, Borlla → MOPEY LION, Naira → THE BOOTY, Maksim → LITTLE BUNNY FOO FOO, Mapplethorpe → Mr. Creeper, Angier → GOLD DIGGER, Elettra → THE QUEEN, Sagacity → SILVERY BULLET, Karpos → SISSY BOI, Aponi → SPOILED BRAT.

Easter '14 — Board-wide Easter Egg Hunt
All over the site, easter eggs were hidden. As per usual, each egg had a letter, and members had to hover over it and write it down. After they found all nine eggs, the participants had to unscramble the letters and figure out the easter-themed word. This year the word was unscrambled to spell out 'Egg Frenzy' by Fenrir, Mimi, Sarah, Melorama, Zyn, Bryony, and PuppyThief. Congrats!

Birthday Bash '14 — Member-made board festivities for RoW's fourth birhday
In celebration of another year on RoW, the Staff has invited a special birthday guest to frequent the lands of Relic Lore. On black-feathered wings, he made a few rounds around the territories and sub-territories, visiting with the wolves and bringing the thrill of anticipation, hope, excitement, and nostalgia in his wake... There were also word searches, a cake hunt, a crossword puzzle, and a gift card raffle sponsored by Servergod!

Yearbook '14 — Member-made celebration for RoW's fourth birthday
As per tradition this will be the second year Relic Lore has had its yearbook, filled with member-submitted quotes, nominated wolves, pack highlights, favorite memories, and a summary of the whole year at a glance.
