  1. Hey all! Time for another exciting RISE Movie Night! Actual photo of Sen getting ready for movie night. Post your movie suggestions below; please post one suggestion per comment so that others can react with "" to vote on the suggestions! We'll watch the movie with the most votes by the time we get started. Let's keep the options PG-13/soft -R for now (e.g., stick to movies you'd feel comfortable watching with your parents or 14-YO sibling). I have Netflix/Hulu/HBO Max; if you suggest something that's not on one of those platforms, be prepared to stream, cause I may not have it. Feel free to check with me before posting your suggestion. See you there!

    I think I'm 50/50 in terms of making it but I'll jump on when I can!
  3. Hey everyone! The holidays are coming up, so it's a perfect time for another Guild Party!! Join us in the guild hall for events like: Fashion Contest Show off your best Wintersday fashion! Categories will be: Most Festive, Most Winter-y, and Best Holiday Cosplay Secret Santa Sign up here to be a part of our Secret Santa event this year! Once you get matched with your giftee, buy something 20G or less for them, and hold onto it for the party. Santas will distribute their gifts to each recipient at the party. Signups will close on 11:59PM ET on December 1st! We'll send you your giftee through Discord so be sure to look out for DMs later that week. Can't make it to the party and still want to participate? Or do you want to forever be a secret santa? Send the name of your giftee, your gift, and an optional message to me in-game (Senlorandir.7865) prior to the party, so that a Festive Golem helper can give your giftee the gift on your behalf. The Giving Snowman The real Santa can't make it to the party, but we will have the next best thing: a Giving Snowman! Come sit by the willow-y branches of the Giving Snowman and make a wish for the new year. If you're on its Nice List, the Giving Snowman is likely to have a surprise in store for you. Polar Bear Plunge Strip down to your undies and let's go battle the Svanir Shaman Chief in Wayfarer Foothills! If time permits, we may venture further north to the Claw of Jormag or Bitterfrost Frontier for some naked Kodan shenanigans. Hope to see you there!

Genre/Theme Suggestions for Q4: None This Month's Book is: A Psalm for the Wild-Built (Becky Chambers) Go Here to Pick a Meeting Time! (Speculative Fiction/Sci-Fi/Novella) From Goodreads: "Hugo Award-winner Becky Chambers's delightful new series gives us hope for the future. It's been centuries since the robots of Earth gained self-awareness and laid down their tools. Centuries since they wandered, en masse, into the wilderness, never to be seen again. Centuries since they faded into myth and urban legend. One day, the life of a tea monk is upended by the arrival of a robot, there to honor the old promise of checking in. The robot cannot go back until the question of "what do people need?" is answered. But the answer to that question depends on who you ask, and how. They're going to need to ask it a lot. Becky Chambers' new series asks: in a world where people have what they want, does having more matter?" Happy Reading! FAQ

Genre/Theme Suggestions for Q4: None This Month's Book is: Black Sun (Rebecca Roanhorse) Go Here to Pick a Meeting Time! (High Fantasy/Sci-Fi/Historical Fiction) From Goodreads: "The first book in the Between Earth and Sky trilogy, inspired by the civilizations of the Pre-Columbian Americas and woven into a tale of celestial prophecies, political intrigue, and forbidden magic. A god will return When the earth and sky converge Under the black sun In the holy city of Tova, the winter solstice is usually a time for celebration and renewal, but this year it coincides with a solar eclipse, a rare celestial event proscribed by the Sun Priest as an unbalancing of the world. Meanwhile, a ship launches from a distant city bound for Tova and set to arrive on the solstice. The captain of the ship, Xiala, is a disgraced Teek whose song can calm the waters around her as easily as it can warp a man’s mind. Her ship carries one passenger. Described as harmless, the passenger, Serapio, is a young man, blind, scarred, and cloaked in destiny. As Xiala well knows, when a man is described as harmless, he usually ends up being a villain."

Genre/Theme Suggestions for Q4: Halloween-themed (ghost stories, etc) This Month's Book is: Lovecraft Country (Matt Ruff) Go Here to Pick a Meeting Time! (Horror/Short Stories/Historical Fiction) From Goodreads: "The critically acclaimed cult novelist makes visceral the terrors of life in Jim Crow America and its lingering effects in this brilliant and wondrous work of the imagination that melds historical fiction, pulp noir, and Lovecraftian horror and fantasy. Chicago, 1954. When his father Montrose goes missing, twenty-two year old Army veteran Atticus Turner embarks on a road trip to New England to find him, accompanied by his Uncle George—publisher of The Safe Negro Travel Guide—and his childhood friend Letitia. On their journey to the manor of Mr. Braithwhite—heir to the estate that owned Atticus’s great grandmother—they encounter both mundane terrors of white America and malevolent spirits that seem straight out of the weird tales George devours. At the manor, Atticus discovers his father in chains, held prisoner by a secret cabal named the Order of the Ancient Dawn—led by Samuel Braithwhite and his son Caleb—which has gathered to orchestrate a ritual that shockingly centers on Atticus. And his one hope of salvation may be the seed of his—and the whole Turner clan’s—destruction. A chimerical blend of magic, power, hope, and freedom that stretches across time, touching diverse members of one black family, Lovecraft Country is a devastating kaleidoscopic portrait of racism—the terrifying specter that continues to haunt us today."
