    Default Rondyvoo....

    Rondyvoo July 23 2016
    A conceptual recreation of the spirit of Rendezvous as used to be. "These annual gatherings were held at various locations beginning in 1825. The large fur companies put together teamster driven mule trains which packed in whiskey and supplies and set up a trading fair, which was called the “rendezvous.” These events were lively, festival-like affairs which were open to free-trappers, Indians, and families alike. Not only was the Rendezvous a place which the trappers could sell and trade their furs for all sorts of commodities, such as clothing, saddles, bridles, tobacco, and whiskey – - but it was a place to meet traders who might wish to engage their services for the coming year. Famous mountain man, Jim Beckwourth, described them as: "Mirth, songs, dancing, shouting, trading, running, jumping, singing, racing, target-shooting, yarns, frolic, with all sorts of extravagances that white men or Indians could invent." Sounds like Wastelanders doesn't it? Anyhoo....still putting the events together..so if anyone has a bright idea lemme know. Suggestions have been; Beard Growing Contest; stalls with trade/sale goods (Prime Salvage & Ho-made goods); Fist Fights with Magnificient prizes to the winners and betting encouraged; The Hunt of a Reviled Wastelander...hunt to the death; Bow & Arrow Target Shootin' show; A Marryin'..if they's any sweethearts lookin' to tie the knot; Git Syruss to do the marryin' and a fine fiery preachin' too; A storytellin...mebee Bartleby will wander back;...so yah gets the drift. Holler at me if yer has ideas too. More to come soon...

    Anyone wanting to trade / sell / holler at passersby at Rondyvoo a mesh market stall will be provided....you can use yer own textures if you like.....just let me know you'll be wanting one.

    I have good reason to believe that Bartleby will be coming back - and with the story Minxx bought at the Salvage Auction a few moons back! Maybe with a couple more new tales, as well... and maybe with some more Stoneseeds and Fatroot to sell!

    A beard (or general weird-hair) contest sounds like a lot of fun! And, speaking of hairdos, maybe Diamanda could set up shop to give cuts to those who want them?

    Fights and hunts sound great, too! Maybe we could try to keep an eye on the dunes - and get lucky enough to have a spider hunt, as well?

    It could also be neat to see some "fair food" - non-game edible weirdnesses, just for fun. Deep-fried Twonkies, maybe? Instead of elephant ears, perhaps a good old-fashioned elephant's foot? I've got more ideas than actual building talent, but I think I'll have Apo see what she can make. (Oh, and she'll be rolling out a couple barrels of hooch, too, all gods help us all...)

    This is gonna be fun!
    Whatever shit Wastelanders do, however dirty or bloody or batshit random it is, it comes right from our gritty, fucked up little hearts, and that's beautiful.

    Ha sounds super Apo. Dia haircuts would be Reaver-hilarious. There WILL be a hunt...The Wild and Terrible Gnawbert will be run to ground for the good of the community. I hope some of the stalls sell food; hootch; salvage; services (i.e., fight lessons; an exclusive build/or build component/ accessories; a DJ session; songs; WL clothing; advice; palm reading; use yer fertile imaginations....) \o/

    It was so fantastic, Tra! It took so many awesome aspects of The Wastelands as a whole, and rolled them all up into one big day of music and fighting and roleplaying and trading and fighting and creativity and drinking and fighting. My hands and arms still hurt a little from typing so much! But it's a good hurt. (Which also sounds like a good summary of it as a whole. The Wastelands: It's A Good Hurt.)

    Thanks so much for organizing everything!
