Random Events Information

Revealing | What Applies | Faction Challenges | Injuries | FAQ

You'll know your tokota encountered a random event when you see "[Tokota] has encountered a Random Event..." at the bottom of an activity roll!

Random Events are RP-style prompts where you're presented a scenario and a set of options to choose from. They can occur on any hunting, fishing, exploration, caving, or diving activity results. Random Events have many possible outcomes - everything from abandoned puppies to injuries, crafted items to extra breedings. There are plenty of fun and exciting things you can discover in Random Events!

How do I Reveal my Event?

There are many ways to track your Random Events! In order to reveal a Random Event, you first need to make an RE journal! An RE journal is any place for admins to comment with the reveal and results of your Random Event. Most people make a separate journal for it, but you can also include it on a tokota's tracker, or on an all-over tracker. Just keep in mind that you should choose a format that works for you, and has a place for us to comment with your Event!

Here are some examples of how other people have their RE journals set up:
All-in-one activities journal
  • This person's journal is set up so that Random Events are included on one journal with all of their other activity results.
Dedicated Random Event Journal
  • This person's journal is set up to be just a single journal, all dedicated to Random Events! This format is certainly the most recommended, as it makes all of your RE's easy to find in one spot.
On the Tokota Tracker
  • This person chose to track all of their Random Events separately, by the tokota who brought it in. They've just added a comment on that particular toko's tracker just for Random Events - It's a bit more involved than having a dedicated journal, but it still works!
After you have your journal set up, you need to submit your Random Event to be revealed.

The "Reveal a Random Event" comment thread is located on the current Random Events journal, which is found by going to the Cycling Journals Hub. On the correct thread, simply fill out the form completely, and submit your comment. It could take admins a few days to get through to yours, depending on the backlog, so please be patient! After your Random Event has been revealed, you can select your reply! You're more than welcome to RP your response to the Event, but please make it clear which option you're choosing!

Any options marked with ✓ is the "safe path" option, and your tokota cannot be injured or have any item loss from that particular option. If an Event has no safe-path options, it means that the event is entirely beneficial - none of the options can harm your tokota, and there's only positive results!

Please bear in mind that if you redeem items or faction points from an activity comment that also has a Random Event, it will VOID that Random Event. Due to the unpredictable nature of RE's, and how they can potentially affect the items in your roll, you need to wait to use your item results until after the RE has been completed! Admins will mark it "RE Complete" when it's all done, which is after you've made your choice and we've replied to you with results.

What Applies to my Random Event?

There are several items, traits, companions, and totems that can help alter your results in Random Events! Here they are, all listed out:

Totems


Faction Challenge Random Events

Faction Challenge events are a special, rare random event that can net you +5 points to your faction when completed, along with an item reward! Faction Challenges will require art or literature to complete, and cannot be collabed or commissioned. There are different versions of prompts depending on your faction, so it's important to make sure you note your faction when you submit your event to be revealed! If you haven't chosen a faction, you cannot get Faction Challenge RE's.

Additionally, if you do not want to do any art/literature, you can select the ✓ safe path.

Requirements:

Art
  • At least 80% of the tokota must be visible.
  • Handler required, at least 50% visible. (Can NOT use a starter!)
  • Must be colored, but shading is optional! (Grayscale/monochrome images are allowed, as long as it's very clear which tokota is pictured. If your tokota is not recognizable, you will be asked to correct it.)
  • Semi-complex background required.
  • Must be at least 300x300 pixels.
  • Must be clean, and show some effort. It should be clear which tokota is pictured. If your tokota isn't recognizable, you will be asked to correct it.
Literature
  • Literature must be at least 1200 words in length.
  • Tokota and handler must be mentioned throughout.
  • Piece should stay focused on the prompt!
  • Collabs/commissions are not allowed for Faction Challenge RE's. All work must be your own.

Injuries


Injuries are very rare in Random Events. It's about a 5% chance of results in most REs for injury - very low! Injuries can be moderate, mild, or severe, and each level affects your tokota in different ways. Injuries must be healed in order to regain normal benefits, and are tracked right on your tokota's import. Continue to the Injuries and Healing page to read more.

FAQ

  • Can I add my own 'flair' to random event options and responses?
    • Of course! These are supposed to be fun and inspiring. As long as the admin knows which option you choose, go ahead and have fun with it! Just remember it won't change the official outcome.
  • I got an item/trait/TT in my RE that I want to redeem! Where should I do that?
    • Redeem your item at the Toko Tokens bank, in the RE redemption thread! Please be aware that the traited values of items do not apply to what is brought back from an RE.
  • What kinds of outcomes do Random Events have?
    • Well, we can't spoil everything! There are lots and lots of different outcomes to Random Events. Everything from item loss, item gain, injuries, or even nothing at all! But there's some pretty cool stuff you can get through Random Events, so don't be discouraged!
  • I want to suggest a Random Event! Is there somewhere I can do that?
    • Definitely! We're always looking for suggestions of new Random Events. In fact, there's a place right on the Suggestion Box for Random Events!
  • How is Hardy (and other injury-preventing items) different from Blessed/Aippaq's Luck?
    • It's a very simple difference! With Hardy, Porcupine, and Leg Protectors, you can still receive the response where your tokota gets injured. It will just say something along the lines of "But due to your tokota's hardy trait, it escaped without injury!" Versus the Blessed/Aippaq's Luck traits, the tokota literally cannot encounter negative results. So if your response is rolled for results, and it lands on something that's neutral/negative, the response is re-rolled until it's positive.
