Description

Holiday Calendar is a community game featuring site users as NPCs. This event is a (self-contained) expansion for Holiday Calendar.

Liberty is out sick this year. So we're taking Christmas to her! In this expansion, we've all flown out to Australia for a very warm holiday smack dab in the middle of summer. But the lack of snow doesn't mean we can't have fun, let's make sandmans, wear festive beachwear and spread the holiday cheer!


How do I join?

It's super simple to join: Literally all you need to do is submit NPC dialogue in a notepad file!
There isn't any gamedev involved on your end, that's being taken care of by yours truly.

What should I say?

Anything! Funny submissions are well encouraged, the sillier the better. If you'd rather just wish people a merry christmas, that's alright too. There is no limit to what you can say as long as it is within reason. For example, no, you can not submit the entire bee movie script. Profanity is allowed, but try not to go overboard. You can also say something for specific members (optional, of course). The only limit is your imagination.

You can also request a small sidequest or any other specific details, but please keep in mind there is a chance they might not make it into the game.

It's not necessary to make your own sprite, but please do specify any details you find important (skin color, gender or preferred appearance for non-binary members, etc...) otherwise I will probably pick something at random. If you do wish to make your own sprite, you may do so as long as it is in the style of REFMAP for rpg maker 2003. You can see an example spritesheet here. I will be using the same sprite from Christmas Card 2020 for members that joined that event, unless otherwise requested.

Mirak also made this blank character template for anyone interested in making their own character! Keep in mind if the sprite stands out too much against the other sprites I may revamp or recreate it.

An example submission:
I would like to say "I was working on an evil plan to take over RMN. Then Liberty found out and kicked me in the face. Impressive, but very painful."
Give me a white male sprite, please.


Remember to submit as a notepad file and not as a comment! Otherwise I guarantee it'll get lost.

When do submissions close?

Submissions will close on the 7th of December. Please make sure to submit before then as the game is meant to be released around christmas time! The earlier you submit, the better, as it means I can start getting work done. You can always submit sprites later and submit dialogue early.

Dropped a thing into this. I couldn't remember if 2K3 uses frames as a unit of measurement for wait commands, or seconds. I went with my gut instinct, which was seconds.
If it's okay, use my real name, Valentina.

I should specify, I'm using RMN usernames for the sake of consistency. If someone really really prefers I use a different name, though, I guess I'll make an exception.

If i don't specify which Christmas then no one can hold it against me. I chose my words carefully

Big brain move, right there.
So what I was thinking for a sidequest was that there were a bunch of alts in the game (as a jab at how I'd use to make a ludicrous number of alts) and you'd have to find and destroy them all to gain a prize of some sort. Each NPC would have different dialogue -- if you do not wish to implement this sidequest, just choose whatever NPC dialogue you like for me.

Ah, another Christmas card! Can't wait to get to play this next year in December.
This sounds like a good idea! :D Also a simple way to participate with the option of not needing to have spent much time on the entry. *O* Yay! XD (Yeah, I've become quite busier lately T_T)

I wanna be in this, I haven't figured out what to say yet though.

Darken should be in this too, he had the best line last time. Dude is literally made for jrpgs.

Darken submitted ;)
Done! I might later come back an' update the sprite with a certain object... But I thought I might as well submit what I did already!

Your entry is so funny XDDDD
The kind of thing I like very much :D
Thanks for brightening up my night XDDDDD
I debated about my entry for a while, then just went "A basic silly gag is the way to go". XD

There's a graphic that exists for me already, feel free to reuse.
Sorry, I forgot to say.
White Male NPC with glasses and brown hair.

Would you mind adding to the submission so that I don't forget when the time comes to implement?
