Empress Day

Post by Oraizan on Thu Jun 15, 2017 6:01 pm

To those that are not from eJapan/eRepublik, Empress Day is an event inspired by some trolling events in 2009 and since then has become such a tradition that we would like to carry it over to vPop. Due to the fact that some have interest in having an emperor/empress for some fun RP we are looking at keeping the concept but creating a new name and set of art for it. If anybody has any ideas on what to name the holiday and/or wants to put forth some graphics please let us know.

Old content:

Rules:
1 - All citizens of eWorld have right to participate/nominate in this event regardless of their home country. You can nominate 1 (one) candidate for Empress.
2 - All nominees must be from an Anime Series (OVA/OAV, movies, ONA, tv series), a Japanese Video Game, or a Japanese Manga. Please no Hentai/Porn.
3 - All nominations must at least include a name, image, and the name of the media (series, movie, manga, game, etc) the nominated character appeared in. Please do not post images containing nudity.
4 - How To Nominate?
Just send me a PM or fill out this form.
5 - No previous elected Empresses can be nominated for a 2nd term. However, Royal Ambassadors, or previous runner-ups for empress can be re-nominated for a chance to be Empress. They can continue to be re-nominated indefinitely, regardless of how many times they have been elected Royal Ambassador unless they are elected Empress even once. Following that election, they are permanently disqualified from running. Check the wall thoroughly!
6 - Empress Day Nominations will last for 3 days.
7 - The person who nominates the winning Empress will receive 5000 yen. The runner up will receive 2500 yen.
Due to image size.. you can click here and here to view the empress wall. (it's huge)

Hrm.... this certainly sounds interesting lol. Though Orai is the true Empress no matter what others may claim. At least in my mind.

There are all kinds of gods/goddesses and/or spirits in Japanese mythology; maybe we can create our own as a replacement for Empress Day? Same monthly event where we elect an character from an anime, manga, or Japanese video game series but, any gender is welcome and after the winning characters is elected, we than nominate and vote what kind of god or goddess that character will be.

Here is a list of Japanese "deities" to give an idea on what they could represent. We could use these along with ones we make up ourselves. Even if we use real mythology from the list and do it monthly; if we start with the minor gods/goddesses we would have material that would last a long time.

Oh! I really like this idea. +1 vote for Deity elections. We got a few (though I assume the majority of us do like anime) that's not super into anime... perhaps allow it to branch out even further and allow western stuff to be allowed to be voted for as well.

yeah, we'll have to stick with Japanese culture but, using Japanese mythology will add a nice new twist to it. Also, lets reverse the order that I mentioned. First vote on the type of god/goddess they should be and than vote on the character best fitted for the job.

I like the idea of deity also! I feel like if we go this route.. the Konohanasakuya-hime is the best choice for relation. Or rather 'Sakura-Princess' which still ties into an empire aesthetic and relates to the usual young cute character that is chosen each month.

"Sengen-sama – Her themes are growth and maturity. Her symbols are flower buds.  Sengen-sama, a Japanese growth Goddess, lives high on Fujiyama, giving Her unique perspectives about each person’s path in life. According to Japanese tradition, this Goddess makes the flowers blossom today, just as She can make our lives blossom into maturity. She also governs cherry blossoms, which represent the beauty and fragility of life."

It could be called 'Cherry Blossom Day' / 'Cherry Blossom Festival' or something around those lines and a blurb could be created about the short lived but beautiful deity - and celebrating her.

I like the idea of a remake of Empress Day. This is a new land, right? We can weave our own new stories!

A different deity each month that comes with a different theme and Sengen-sama has the perfect theme to start this new tradition with. First, vote on the god/goddess theme and secondly we would vote on the character best suited for the job? Use the same set up as Empress Day just with an additional vote?

What could be the new name? I like the Cherry Blossom Festival name but, it is out of place during the winter months and there is a RL Cherry Blossom Festival that could be adapted at some point in the spring.

A lot of the gods/goddesses that can be used for the event will be from the "Shinto" religion. Maybe we can get a name for the new event from it? The wikipedia link about it is below.

Hm.... I like it. After reading that wikipedia article I was thinking perhaps we can can have in line with the Lunar Calender or something. On the day of the full moon there is a huge monthly festival or something that goes on all day and all night, from sunrise to sunrise. And we can call it the Lunar Kaguya Festival... after some dance that after a very very very quick skim... it is a common thing in festivals and it's origin and to try and entice a goddess to come out of hiding or... something along those lines. So it'd be like... each month it's about enticing a new god or goddess to come and join us and their fellow deities in a grand day long festival. And theme of the festival could also match the theme of the new god/goddess to vote for. And then someone writes up an article detailing how the month's festival went or something.

I don't really associate Shintoism with the Lunar Calender, at least, reading that article didn't give me the same impression. I know that a lot of festivals happen in Japan, but the names would vary depending on the deity being celebrated. So the only name I could really come up with Kami Matsuri, based around the idea of the festivals that celebrate the gods.

Aye, I was just trying to think of something interesting with my ideas with the lunar stuff. And I only skimmed >.< Honestly I sorta wanna the festival is the birth of a new god... but that'd far from make sense. Maybe an idea is the festival is to celebrate someone who has ascended into godhood? That makes sense in the way we are voting one already established characters and all.

Noooo! I wasn't trying to disparage your opinions! I think it's really creative! I just wanted to comment on what I saw. Idk. I'm okay with the idea of "picking the anime character that' she like this deity" because it keeps the concept simple. I'm just not really enchanted with a name.

Shouldn't be to hard to put together an event with the material here but, still not too sure about the holiday name. Has anyone thought about it more?

Day of the Gods
Deity Day
Day of Shinto
Shinto Select

I have no idea, some random names to star the brain storm.

'The way of Kami' is nice = 惟神の道
or Shinto Festival which would be, Shintou Matsuri, or Kami-no-michi-matsuri 神道祭 /  随神の道 aka. the way of kami.

Shintou Matsuri sounds pretty good to me. The second one is kinda a mouthful to type properly >.<

I'm fine with either しんとうまつり or かみのみちまつり, although if we pick the second one I'll probably just end up shortening it to かみまつり。

I also like the "Shintou Matsuri" suggestion by Oraizan. I think I'll go with that name when I form my holiday proposal from this thread.
