    9/11 Ceremony 2018.



    Banner made by @HelpfulAuroraParker.

    9/11 Ceremony 2018

    If you remember for the past few years I've hosted a 9/11 ceremony in honor of all those who lost their lives on that tragic day, and every year it was a big success and got a lot of positive feedback as well (thanks to all of you for that by the way, I really appreciate it). Well now it's time for the 2018 9/11 ceremony. To see the past 9/11 ceremonies, just follow the links in their respective years below:

    Wizard101
    2011
    2012
    2013
    2014
    2015
    2016
    2017

    Pirate101
    2013
    2015
    2016
    2017

    The Premise

    The premise of this ceremony is to honor all of those who lost their lives on that fateful day, and to remind everyone that they'll still remain in our hearts for generations to come. It's also to honor all of those first responders who helped save a ton of additional lives as well also.

    What We'll Do

    What we'll do is parade around part of Skull Island on foot, starting from Circus Maximus, and eventually ending in in my Volcano Island house, where we'll give speeches and thoughts on the Ceremony and also the actual day/event that occurred all of those years ago as well. We'll be doing this in realm Vadima. Also, as suggested by a reader @Toa of Gallifrey to be exact) there will be a special show match at the end of the Pirate101 version of the march this year to represent the struggle the soldiers faced in defending their homeland. This will take place shortly after arrival to the house and before the closing speeches begin.

    The Path

    I'll bet you're all wondering what path we'll take. Well it goes like this: we'll start in Circus Maximus, since that's near the beginning of the world, and the rest will be as followed:

    Circus Maximus -> Bestia -> Avery's Court -> Skull Mountain -> Skull Cave -> Skull Island (Zone) -> Ancient Tunnels -> Skull Island Docks.

    The reason it's only the Free to Play areas is so more people can attend and participate in the event.

    Rules

    Like all events, this one has rules that you should know and follow.

    1. Mounts are forbidden in this event. If you get lost from the group then you can use your mount to catch up to us, but that's the only exception, and you must dismount once you've caught back up to us (don't use this as an excuse to continue using your mount during the event).
    2. For outfits I would like for you to dress in all Black or White, at least for the Base. The Trim can be any color you want, though I would prefer if it was a dark or light color like Dark Purple or Grey for example.
    3. For pets, I would like it to be something that represents Life and Remembrance like a North Wind Lion, Celestial Dragon or an Ostrich in a Pear Tree for example. Wands and badges follow this same rule (i.e. no Undead-like wands or badges).
    4. No cursing or foul language.
    5. No rude, mean or any other disrespectful behavior.
    6. All Pirate101 Central and Pirate101 rules apply (you may say your Pirate101 Central name in-game though, as I don't see a problem with that).
    7. Stay with the group as much as you can.
    8. Listen to me and my Helpers.
    9. Helpers, don't abuse your position to bully and/or harass other players.
    10. Anyone can come to this event, regardless of whether or not they have an account on this site. If they don't have an account here and/or are just unaware of this event here in general, then just make sure that they're aware of the rules ahead of time.
    11. If some of us get caught in a battle, then we wait until they're done (this was a problem for the first year, where some of us got caught, and the rest of the group went on, causing confusion).
    12. You must have access to at least these areas of Skull Island.
    13. For chat, at least have Text Chat, so you can hear what everyone is saying.
    14. If you would like to speak, then please say so so that I can add you to the Guest Speakers list. This way it's all organized as to who speaks and who doesn't.
    15. Have fun.

    Why Am I Hosting This?

    The reason I'm hosting this is to not only honor the fallen, but also remind everyone that even though they're gone from this world physically, they shall never be gone spiritually from our hearts and minds.

    Extra Notes

    Like every year I do not mean any disrespect to anyone by hosting this event. I only mean to honor the fallen and to deliver the message I stated above. I will need some volunteers to help me with keeping everything under control; about 2-3 or so Helpers should be enough for this, so if you're interested in helping me out post here.

    Guest Speakers will go up to the podium and say a few words about the date to the crowd. Once they're done, if there's still enough time left (and if people aren't getting too impatient about it as well), then we'll see if non-registered Guest Speakers can come up to the podium and speak. Post here if you're interested in becoming a Guest Speaker for this event.

    The reason why the end is at my house is so that everything can be controlled better, as over the years of hosting this I've noticed that while having it in a public location is nice and all, it's too easy for trolls to come in and just ruin everything. By having this hosted in my house I can help limit that as best I can by ultimately kicking/removing people who try to act up like that.

    I know some might think I'm being disrespectful by hosting this kind of event, but I'm honestly not trying to be. I just mean to honor all of those who gave up their lives trying to protect us during that fateful day and to also remind everyone that they'll always be in our hearts and minds forever.

    Also, if you'd like to take pictures and/or videos of this event, then please feel free to do so as well.

    Since the Wizard101 version of this event is hosted on the actual day, the Pirate101 version of this event will be held a few days before it to prevent confusion between events.

    Thank you so much for your time, as I really appreciate it.

    I'll try to make it, if I can. If I am able to, I'd love to be a Helper or a Guest Speaker like last time.

    Fine

    Re: 9/11 Ceremony 2018.

    It'd be cool if there was a simple exhibition PvP match at your house while the speakers relay their messages, that'd help retain attention longer and make for a fun shake-up in the formula. It can be representative of the struggle of US forces in defending their homeland.

    I'd love to say a few words if I can make it. I'll let you know for sure closer to the event date, but so far my schedule is free. Thanks for hosting
