Holes (Pardon the utter lack of originality.)
Who to credit
And Louis Sachar for writing Holes I guess idek cough.
: Oh gosh all the words I'm sorry.
For whatever reason, the Malnosso have deemed certain materials and minerals buried in the sand and dirt over at the beach to be incredibly valuable. Heck if experimenting with moon rocks isn't going anywhere why not go looking for some new materials to mess around with? But using droids for the excavation or any of their own resources wouldn't be fun, might as well rope the entire village into a little digging.
Villagers are escorted/dragged by a droid down to the beach where they are given a spade/pick axe/wheelbarrow/etc and a canteen of water to last them a good few hours. The heat seems a great deal more intense today and there is barely a single cloud in the sky to provide a little shade. Every so often droids will offer to refill the villager's canteens but those who refuse to work get a single canteen of water for the entire day, enjoy a little dehydration with your digging.
Droids are more or less constantly monitoring the project. Those who are slowing down in their digging or are found to be talking too much might get a little prod back to work courtesy of the droids. Those who are causing a fuss and refusing to work will be constantly dragged back to the beach. Anyone who passes out from the heat or another illness will be taken away either back to the village or to any trained doctor or medic for treatment. As soon as they're back on their feet they will be sent back to work. There are times when the digging will be unsupervised, allowing villagers to sneak off for some rest or cover for someone else's digging should the work be too much for some people.
When the sun starts to set then villagers are either taken home by the droids or shown to quickly made wooden shacks lined up on the beach where they can sleep for the night. Once they wake up again it's back to work digging up the beach. Those who refused to dig and work a proper day will be kept in the shacks at the beach where they will be unable to bathe or properly rest up.
Villagers who find certain materials, treasures and so on can show their findings to the droids to score a day off. They'll be free to leave and head back to the village to go about a normal day, but they'll be brought back the next day to start digging once again.
Muns who wish to opt out of the event can choose to have the droids not escort their character down to the beach. Characters not chosen to go dig for the Malnosso can still visit the beach and interact with those who were if they so wish, perhaps smuggling in food and water or whatever else they might have planned. The droids will pay little attention to those who weren't picked to come on down and dig for the Malnosso unless they try intervening with the excavation and try stopping the digging in some way, in which case they will be shown back to the village.
