Heb~Bastet Main Thread
The capital city of Akhet was a bustle with the start of the Festival to Bastet - the Heb~Bastet to those who spoke khemetic. Every year, during the hustle and bustle of this week many heads of the varying guilds, crafts and occupations realized that they were woefully understaffed. With so many coming to visit the grand city it was a great time to search for sphinxes looking for a change of pace, perhaps a new focus on life.
The Town Square with a colourful panorama of cloth from the many tarp covered tents and booths. Some showed off their wares of simple skills such as varying craftsmen trying to find a journeyman to train, a stage hosted dancers and musicians looking for skillful potentials to join them, the scribes had schedules and timed essays seeing who out of the untrained mass of peasants could grasp the written word, a training ground with straw stuffed dummies was set up to lure in potential future soldiers and archers for Khemet, and darker figures lurked in alleyways searching for the sphinxes with 'sticky paws' or a thirst for blood to join their guilds.
This is the Job Fair thread for the Sphinxes's Heb~Bastet festival. There will be openings and chances to raise your sphinx to 'nearly' every existing class. (if they meet the requirements, and pass the tests... of course. )
Custom Posed Sphinxes and CYO Sphinxes 'could' potentially apply, but do realize that their costumes will not change, but only their certed job title will change.
Love Pairs may also apply but if the class that they win an upgrade for hasn't been re-drawn for their template yet, it may just take a long wait; until awhile after the Festival is over, before you can see the results. (Unlike most other class upgrades that are typically done within a few days, often within the same hour. O.o )

Maybe this year I can get a job upgrade for one of my peasants
*goes off to organize potentials*
O.o fun... cant wait to see how this works. This will be my 1st time thru one of these!!~
Same here! I'm eager for the potential farmer spot with my brand new boy but also eager just to see how it happens. :3
It's crazy fun.
I really hope I'm here for the musician one though. Kneph has been begging me to get him that job ever since the class came out.
I need a musician upgrade myself, Spring. Gui Xian demands it. Otherwise Tili won't have him. LOL
Im really hoping to get a Belly Dancer job, its my fav outfit and I dont have one... yet. One day for sure
I need so many upgrades this I'm focusing on finally getting Thutmose a scribe and Savio a Ninja
I've only got a few looking for upgrades for character reasons. BUT I do intend to join ALL events for the fun of it. Hehehe
Saw the schedule in the main.. hoping that I can participate in a couple I've been wanting for a long time!
I saw the schedule in the main thread and...it looks like the ones I want to try for are...on days that I will not be around >.<
*moves to sit on Hybrid's head*
Good luck to everyone! I'm slightly concerned about Korrina.. she's not stopped singing since the schedule was posted up.
Setting up hunter sign-ups in a minute!
A tall, lithe sphinx walks with careful deliberation into the great square, leading a string of camels behind her. She didn't spend much time here in the city, but appeared at complete ease with her surroundings nonetheless. Stepping lightly to the area that had been marked aside for her trials, she tetheres the camels in a corner where they will be comfortable. Their part to play in her trials today would come much later. First, it was time to test those sphinxes who wished to take on the role of a hunter. Taking a seat on her platform, she looks out over the crowd, and speaks out with her silky voice.
"Let all those who wish to step forth on the path to a Hunter, present yourselves in this square by 16:30. Your task will commence upon that minute!"
((Please actually post their picture, sorry! ))

Burcin steps forward into the square, her beautiful earrings swaying gracefully with ever step of her entrance.
"I am one who would go forth on the path of a mighty hunter."
Steps forward, his tail swishing back and forth. The mask he wears covering his expression except for his eyes which dance behind the eye holes.
Apetma watched, eyes bright. She would become a hunter one day, but she was not yet ready. Another year of training, and then, she would see.
Anai pads in and finds a seat. She settles her wings and wait's patiently for the other contestants to arrive.
The life of a dancer had entertained her for long, but slowly the outdoors call had ovetaken her. Chaos is here to sign up for the hunter try-outs.
Jinniana padded into the job fair, hoping to get a job and she thought perhaps hunter would be good. Seeing others there, she felt nervouse, but she had to compose herself for whatever task was ahead of them.
