The Rejected Realms'
★ Culture Calendar February 2021 ★
Fun fact: this is the only February for 200 years where a calendar starting on Monday will form a perfect square. So let's celebrate with a Culture Calendar, with activities planned all through the month!
You can join in no matter what region you're in, and you don't have to participate in every activity - just show up for what you think sounds fun! If you have any questions, you can telegram me (Budgie Snugglers) or message me on Discord (Nakari#3538). And if you want to get involved in planning events, check out the Culture Office or message me!
Roleplay Day - Wiki
Game Day - Among Us with Nequedum
Trivia Day - Reverse Popmaster
Games Weekend with Osiris
Games Weekend with Osiris
On Tuesdays, we give out a theme and see who can fit the theme best!
We have done this for a while on Discord - based on the theme, members of the Discord server change their nicknames and profile pictures to fit. At the end of the day, the Delegate and Officers consult with each other to decide whose picture and name they liked the best out of everyone who participated. Creativity is encouraged! You can join our Discord server here: https://discord.gg/Z3xbVTm
We are also going to run a gameside version this month. You can change your flag, motto or pretitle to fit a theme, and the Delegate and Officers will pick who they think fits the theme best. Make sure to mention me on the RMB so I can see you are participating!
Do you consider yourself someone with a high IQ? A great problem solver? A word smith? A Mensa member? Well for all of you brainiacs out there you can put your thinking skills to the test on our Puzzle Days. On these days we will release a puzzle in this dispatch and you'll just have to submit the answers. Don't ruin it for anyone else though! And by the way, the types of puzzles we're talking about are not the jigsaw kind. They're more like word puzzles or codes. There will be some variety week to week like Cryptograms, Sudoku, and more.
The solution is: Style and structure are the essence of a book; great ideas are hogwash.
Did you know NationStates has a trading card game? Every time you answer issues, you might get a card pack, which contains trading cards of other nations. On Card Days, we'll give you a theme and to participate, you show us a card you own that fits the theme. (You don't have to already own the card - you can trade for one that fits the theme, too.) Let us know how your card fits the theme - maybe it's the flag, the name, the motto, or maybe you have a really creative explanation!
Also, if you're interested in cards, you might enjoy TRR's own card group, the Discarded League!
Who doesn't love trivia? It comes in all shapes and sizes and helps you look smart. For all you big brains out there come join us for our Trivia Days and show off all that useless knowledge you have squirreled away in your heads. The categories for a trivia day could be anything really from music (Popmaster), to movies, to history, and everything in between. Most of our trivia activities take place on our Discord server: click here to join!
The Rejected Realms has been known to enjoy various games on discord like Werewolf, Codenames, and Spyfall. On this day every week we'll pick a time to all play together so as many people can join in as possible. Most of our games take place on our Discord server: click here to join!
The Spymasters take turns giving clues that would help their team guess the words they have to in order to win. Clues must be 1 word and not contain any of the words on the board. Clues will also say how many words the clue is for. For example a Spymaster might give the clue Water 2, if its team needs to guess Lake and River on the board. The Spymaster's team, must take at least one guess per round but if it doesn't feel sure about the other words for the clue it can pass the rest of its turn to the next team. If a team guesses as many of their words as the Spymaster numbers in the clue, then that team earns a bonus guess if they so choose. There is no number limit you can give in your clue. First team to guess all its words without uncovering the assassin wins the game.
These are new activities we're trying out this month. If you like the ideas, come join in and help them survive to next month!
This one's pretty simple; we're just gonna chill in the Discord server voice chat and listen to music fitting a theme. Send in any music you want that fits the theme!
I've found a site where we can solve jigsaws together (https://jigsawpuzzles.io/). Again pretty simple, I'll post some puzzles and we can work together to solve them!
The solution to the cryptogram is (spoilering so that if anyone still wants a go they can try :P )
Congrats to everyone who solved it :D
it is well into the afternoon and i still don't feel totally awake. what's going on in TRR today?
I haven't been to Salzburg yet, but it's on the list of places to go once I feel better about traveling. Luckily Vienna offers plenty of cafes too :P there's this cute little place called "Vollpension" (full pension) that's run by a bunch of retirees and has the most delicious homemade cakes. Not to mention excellent coffee.
Sweet! I haven't been to Vienna yet.
There is a place near Primrose Hill here in London which does good cake and coffee too....I just can't remember the name now.
But yes, with lockdown it's just coffee at home and baking my own cakes. Hopefully places will open again soon.
Just thought I'd pop by and remind you about The Bread Box - Ask Sarah any question you may have on your mind
Ever wondered what her favourite ice cream is? Whether she drinks coffee every morning?
The Bread Box is the perfect place to ask all these questions
The Answers will be published in the next issue of TRT
Further information can be found here:
hmmmm, probably an eagle cause then i could fly and poop on people i dont like
Probably a birb of some kind
Vienna: highly recommended. Doubly so for coffee fanatics.
I was in London once but sadly didn’t get to try any cafes. I remember a really good burger place and also... what’s that market near London Bridge called... of course I forget it now :P
