History of the Walrus Festival

Vesper Walrus FestivalOriginally posted November 22nd, 2015 by EM Elizabella on the Great Lakes EM Site:

In its early years, Vesper, a bustling port and mercantile city, had a steady trade in walrus. The walrus gave food, pelts, and ivory to Vesper. Walrus oil kept its lanterns burning through the cold, dark nights of winter. At this, the darkest time of the year, the people of Vesper give thanks for the creature that sustained their ancestors.

The walruses themselves have a decidedly different view of the holiday. Lead by Bucky and Splat, they seek vengeance for the slaughter of their ancestors. They are often assisted by pigs, though it is unknown whether the porcine creatures bear a similar grudge or have an agenda all their own. Though their plans often fail, the walruses are undaunted.

In 2010, the walruses launched a surprise attack on Vesper’s Walrus Festival celebrations. In 2011, the walruses invited everyone to a banquet to make amends… and tried to slaughter all their guests, with their pig allies staging an amphibious landing on the beaches of Kos Heb. In 2012, Bucky and Splat rebuilt the mechanical horror S.C.R.O.O.G.E. That plan failed spectacularly and the walrus leaders were killed.

In 2013, from the afterlife, Bucky and Splat rallied demon pigs to attack the living! In 2014, the walruses used the power of a magic mirror to lure humans into the frozen wasteland of death. Their plot was only discovered because greedy Vesper merchants sent forces into the afterlife to rescue the two anti-mascots, purely to boost sales of plush walrus toys.

With Walrus Festival falling so early this year, will Bucky and Splat be able to make full use of their second chance at life and vengeance?
