Just to make sure for everybody: Is @coldculture German or at least German speaking? Or does this mean that we will shift to English? (No problem on my side with this)

Aloha!

I want to offer a mid-season event. This could be something to celebrate heroic deeds and introduce new characters. I was thinking of a harvest festival end of September/begin of October. Something like Oktoberfest plus a tournament (archery, duels, etc.).

What do you think? Would this be of interest to you? Do you have another idea?

Great idea! Every participant could prepare a portion of this festival and offer and organize mini sessions with rules, npcs and mini plots and rewards.

I like the general idea very much, not just as a mid-season event (and this frightens me: is this already half?), but as a recurring event in this world, something to look forward even next year.
But then again, how will this work? One GM and four players? Or do you intend to open it up to many players at once? Will this also be a part of an adventure or do you just want to make this mini and just some spotlights? Do the PCs fight or compete against each other there? I think this kind of event is especially great if the players know the NPCs already very much and get to know other NPCs during that event. It is a game of fame, relationships and competition, if I understand correctly.

I like @Rardian's idea of splitting the burden. Everyone interested could prepare another part of the festival:
- the archery event
- the duels with quarter-, semi-, and finale
- the Bruckheim Black Belt challenge
- the magic show
- the bardic tournament
- etc.

Every mini-event will get its own Discord room. Everyone can walk around rooms and talk and play. We will have a timeline for central parts of mini-events so that the responsible co-GM can be there.

I will take part with NPCs.

I would also like to run a mini-scenario for new characters to learn the city and setting.

So, let's talk about the upcoming sessions...
Before deciding on whether to take on the second story of the Lonely Tower, we should first see who is available at all.
If I understand you correctly it is as follows (please correct me if I'm wrong or insufficient or didn't take you into account at all. It's no ill will, but my memory or missing information):

Jochen: available as GM on July 14, July 21, July 28, but not August 4.
Martin: available on July 14, but not July 21 and July 28.
Björn: available on July 14, unavailable on July 21, rest available.
(Coldculture): available on July 14
Sebastian: probably available on July 14, July 21, July 28, but not August 4, right?
Jan: available July 21 and July 28.
Claudia: ?
Jörg: ?
(anybody else who is interested in joing us): ?
Stephan: Available on all of those above

I will update this list with your comments.

Right. Thanks for the overview. So it might be better, that I pass the next session so the lonely tower can be explored in successive sessions...

I'm only unavailable in the week of the 21st. Unsure about the end of July weeks was Martin.

If that is the case, these are the only possible dates for the Lonely Tower. We can do with any absent character, but not without the ranger leading us to the hidden tower.

I would like to go to the Baron's tomb with Hogar on the 14th. Who comes with me?
Where or what is the Baron's tomb?

Counter-Proposal:
Lonely Tower on July 14 and 21, Eremis, Bausum, Nichuan + 1. Because Jan is available on these dates.
