Hullabaloo
« on: May 31, 2015, 10:57:14 PM »

Hullabaloo's an otter festival that can last from summer all the way to fall: but nothing was explained beyond that, and it was only mentioned in Taggerung. Anyone know more?

No, not really. Though, I kinda did make up an otter game that could possibly have taken place there. A hullabaloo is a commotion or fuss, making it sound like it would be a rather crazy event. :P

I presume it would be a crazy and enjoyable event.  It would have taken place the summer Deyna was born and again the summer most the action of Taggerung took place, in between which is a considerable amount of time.  An otter might go as a Dibbun, again as a young adult, and bring his own children to the next.  All I can do regarding Hullabaloo is guess, but as it takes place on the sea, I suppose it might be attended by river otters and sea otters alike and would be host to the reunion of family members and to a great deal of competitions, exaggerated story-telling, and feasting. 

Skarzs, what sort of game did you invent?

It was in a topic called "Fishing" by Rrrr. I made this post:

I imagine fishing with a line to be an older creature style of fishing, calm and relaxing, whereas diving and spearing would be for younger otters. Heh, it would be cool if they had tournaments like that.
Makes decent sense.
