Welcome to the Respite

Your feet are tired, your shoes are worn through the soles, you can feel your ribs against your skin, you can feel mud, water and grime seeping in through your clothes. Through your pores even. You can taste dirt, roots and grass in your mouth and between your teeth. It's been days since you've last seen civilization. Had a conversation with a sentient being.

You are weary. And all you can see is pine, wet grass and darkness. But wait! What's that? The smell of roast? Rays of hope in the distance? The faint sounds of camaraderie?

You dash for it.

You find an old-fashioned but inviting inn in the middle of the darkened misty glen. You see warm lights and jolly shadows in the windows. You hear the music of merriment and bagpipes from it.
You see a a faded signboard painted in green and gold hanging by the door. It reads:

The door looks old, battered but welcoming, like an old friend willing to let you rest your head on his lap.
You enter.

Welcome! This is the official group of the chatroom.
Erinshaw Respite
Most activities take place inside the chat. We dabble in nearly everything, from general chatting lounge to venting space to RP requests to art sharing.
Sometimes we may even hold out of chat activities like collabs and secret Jack O Lanterns.

To join the group, you should at least have visited the chatroom once.

All art has been destributed! Check your notes and please join us again next time!

Snoman Season's greetings Respite,

In the spirit of the almighty Astrovique's Secret Jack-O-Lanterns and the glittery pinkythepink's SECRET art trades, I have taken up the frozen flames to another one this year.

Present Bullet 02  Sign up in the comments if you wish to participate and come December 6th I will be handing you your SECRET trade partner names. You will receive your SECRET trade partner name via the Notes System in the upper right (if you're on the comp) or lower right (if you're on mobile). You won't be able to sign up after December 6th as that will ruin the random secret surprise nature.

Present Bullet 02   If you wish to put your name into the hat multiple times feel free to. You will be expected to complete all your trades. Just let me know when you sign up.

Present Bullet 02  There is no particular theme; once you find out your SECRET partner's name, lurk their profile, friends, and favorites to see what sort of things they like. Or just make something random!

Present Bullet 02  Your artwork must comply with ALL dA rules.  

Present Bullet 02  Your half of the art trade will be due December 31st. I do not appreciate tardiness. Santa Stare  (You may note that as I live in the United States (CST to be specific) and many in the Respite are on the Southern Hemisphere there will probably be a bit of a time stamp delay.) If you are concerned about the holidays getting in the way of the due date: finish early.

Present Bullet 02   When your half of the art is finished send a NOTE to DarKiani for distribution. I suggest you upload your artwork to deviantART's system as it is the easiest format. [Click here to note me directly!]

Present Bullet 02  If one does not follow through with their half of the art trade I will personally bar them from future secret art trade s and the missing half of the trade will be filled in by a mystery artist.

:squee: Now go forth and spread your artistic cheer! :happybounce:
Wishing you the merriest of holidays,
Llama Emoji-18 (Eating Ramen) [V1]

Okay. I re-installed both things needed to run chat, and still isn't letting me connect! (I use chrome by the way)
