(Yearly Event) Spring Masquerade Ball
The Spring Masquerade is an event that we host every year in April! We hosted the first Spring Masquerade in 2019 and hosted the second one on April 28th 2020!
We currently do not have a set date for 2021 but you can expect it to be sometime in April!
When there is information about the 2021 edition of the event it will be posted here!
Below you can find information on the previous event editions.
2019 Spring Ball
The first edition of the event was quite simple... a spring ball. The masquerade portion of the event was added for 2020.
Random Fact: This event was first hosted under our old name, The Stalwart Embers. The second and final public event we hosted with that Free Company name before changing to The Azure Flames.
The main attraction for the event was a Dance-Date Auction! If someone needed a partner to dance with, they could bid on someone else to dance with them! A date auction, but only for dancing during the event.
There was also a costume contest with a gil prize for the top finishers!
The event had a rather low attendance and was considered to be average by those who attended. We used a google form questionnaire to gather feedback for usage in the 2020 version.
2020 Spring Masquerade Ball

The 2020 Spring Masquerade Ball is the biggest event we have hosted to date! (as of 11/18/20) Attendance numbers hit the estate's capacity, locking some people outside due to the limit Square Enix set. Roughly 250+ total players attended this event.
The 2020 edition featured four main activities:
- The Masquerade Auction
"Similar to a date auction...and practically the same thing. For those who need a partner to dance with for the evening, here is their chance! Alternatively, they can also use the auction to acquire a date for a future evening."
- Bardly Bard Off
"A competition between bards competing for a grand prize!"
- Costume Contest
"Those with the most exotic, fancy, and pretty costumes can compete for prizes! There will be a lot of categories to win, so everyone can have a chance at a prize! The one who manages to win the most categories wins the grand prize."
- Trivia Trials
"A game where people will compete for points! Answering a question correct will result in a point. The top three finishers will win prizes!"
The above image shows the costumes of everyone (still online at the time) that took part in the costume contest!
