|›› This Month In Rivelata|
|The winter has passed, and spring makes the island bloom into a beautiful garden. Some old traditions may be seen this month, once-forgotten by Rivelata's natives, now brought to the forefront by the reemergence of the Gods.|
As for which God, well...you only need to ask: what is the season of spring known for?

(For those of you who needed more details, the island is invaded by Pokemon this month! Everyone received a Pokemon that fit their personality...or at least looked a little bit like them.)
|January 8th - 29th|
A mysterious phenomenon occurs, where people are suddenly flung into the remains of a once-grand city. A strange man known as Maron claims that this is the true Rivelata, a place that was destroyed centuries ago. There is danger in this ancient city, however, and the groups find themselves fighting creatures that until now, were thought to be legends passed down amongst the Rivelatean natives.
|November & December 2009|
|November 27th - 30th|
It's awfully chilly for a tropical island, isn't it? ...With that in mind, hopefully everyone will be thankful for the gifts they'll be getting to deal with the upcoming cold front. The Goddess Hannike has given everyone an article of winter clothing, as well as a Christmas ornament that carries a treasured memory.
Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful,
And since we've no place to go,
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
Snowfall on a tropical island is an anomaly, unless the island in question is Rivelata.
I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus
Underneath the mistletoe last night
She didn’t see me creep
Down the stairs to have a peep
She thought that I was tucked up
In my bedroom, fast asleep
Hannike's antics have extended to mistletoe. People under the plant will be trapped until they kiss one another.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
O evergreen unchanging.
A symbol of good will and love,
You'll ever be unchanging.
Each shining light, each silver bell,
No other sight spreads cheer so well.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
You'll ever be unchanging.
A giant Christmas tree pops up in the Marketplace. Wonder where the fountain went...
December 24th & December 25th
He's making a list,
And checking it twice;
Gonna find out who's naughty and nice.
Santa Claus is coming to town
Gifts fall from the sky, from "Santa Claus." Whether or not these gifts are really from Santa is a mystery, but they're all things from everyone's home world.
December 26th - 31st
Through the years we all will be together
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough.
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now.
The year has ended, and everyone is relaxing and regrouping.
|October 4th - 31st|
Trick or treat! But it can't be much of a party without costumes, right? Keep an eye on your doorsteps these next few weeks, aspiring trick or treaters. There may be a gift or two.
Oh, and what is a proper Halloween without legends? Especially ghost stories, and everyone loves a ghost story, right?
And on the note of ghosts...a poem, from us to you:
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there.
I did not die.
|September 2nd - 30th|
The island itself is at unease... Earthquakes--some weak and some strong, will be commonplace this month. The reason is unknown for now...but it's certainly an unusual occurrence. Even the natives seem confused.
The King is planning something...however, his intentions don't seem to be with ill-intent. A pleasant surprise has been planned: a beautiful ball, hosted by the lovely Madam. For once, no one died in the making of this ball.
September 16th - 30th
When does the dream end, and the nightmare begin? Everyone is plagued by nightmares this month...nightmares that manifest themselves in the real world.
|August 3rd - 10th|
Every visitor and native to Rivelata has a story to tell, but they...perhaps did not intend for it to be told in such a manner. The trickster god is up to his old habits again: characters will walk around with voices narrating their every move.
August 12th - 19th
We are young
Heartache to heartache we stand
No promises, no demands
Love is a battlefield
Hannike, the Goddess of Love and twin to the Goddess Cela, visits the island for a while. Unfortunately, the lack of romanticism grates on her nerves, and so she creates her own entertainment. The denizens of Rivelata will believe they are in various romance novel stereotypes for this week.
August 24th - 31st
The world will change around you for a little while--to some, this will be nostalgic and familiar. To others, an exotic new land awaits. As a gift, Hannike transforms the island into another world. However, it seems she may be hiding something...
|July 1st - 8th|
After the invasion, things are pretty banged up. It's a time to relax, enjoy the peace, the weather and fix up what's been damaged.
July 9th - 16th
When we are dreaming alone it is only a dream. When we are dreaming with others, it is the beginning of reality. The young god of dreams, Aisling, will give a selected few beautiful dreams this week--an apology, perhaps, for the invasion.
July 19th - 24th
King Alastair has announced a celebration for this week! Merriment abounds as the city is transformed into a magnificent carnival. Enjoy the street performers, games, food and of course, free booze!
July 27th - 31st
Don't you miss your home? Or wonder what's going on? There's been a couple of disappearances--and in some cases, people falling into deep, dream filled sleep. How they will return, or if they'll return is anyone's guess...it's possible that, for once, they've returned home. But why now?
The reason for the mysterious soldiers becomes clear when a new arrival is revealed. This man is Prince Alastair--now King of Rivelata, from the far-off country of Mirande. He claims that he only wants to restore order and peace to Rivelata, but is this really the case?
An explosion rocks the city in the middle of the night: one of the laboratories belonging to the family of Lady Elise Blombrenn has been destroyed. Apparently this explosion was rigged, but this information is unknown. It was certainly an odd and dangerous way to express discontent, but no one was harmed...
June 10th - 13th
The prankster god Egil has changed the water into wine. Affected characters will be somewhere between tipsy and flat-out wasted for these three days.
June 14th - 17th
It seems like Egil isn't done yet! Characters will wake up on the 14th with a glowing star above their heads. This star reflects the mood of the person.
A supernova bathes the island in light, shooting stars crash to the ground, and a young boy falls from the stars. He seems harmless enough, but the Goddess Cela appears to know him. Maybe there's more to the boy than meets the eye.
June 22 - 28th
Monsters from everyone's words have invaded Rivelata! This attack happened rather suddenly, and no one knows for certain who or what is responsible for it. It really does seem like a nightmare...
