Bi-Annual Celebration of Competition (Summer)

Hello everyone! I'm back to announce a roleplaying event that will be coming up on Friday, August 17th. The Celebration of Competition is an Olympic-style event to be held at the Argent Tournament Grounds, starting at 2:00 PM Server Time. The Celebration will consist of food, drinks, souvenirs, and fun and games for all, as well as a few games and competitions that award prizes.

Signups for the games will take place at the southernmost stairs leading up to the Crusaders' Coliseum, starting right at 2:00 PM, which gives everyone an hour to get signed up before the games start. The games are completely optional (we'll need some onlookers, after all!). The games are as follows:

Outfit of Choice

Judges: Mindina, Catiana

Location: Small stage at the south end of the grounds.

Time: 3:00 PM ST

Description: Contestants are judged based on the appearance of their chosen outfit. Each contestant will be announced, go on stage, wait five seconds, turn 90º, wait five seconds, turn 90º, pick a pose of their choice to perform, and then leave the stage (you will not lose points for not following this directly...it merely allows us to see your outfit in all it's glory).

Prizes:
First Place: Enchant Wep = Mongoose
Second Place: Enchant Wep = Unholy
Third Place: Enchant Wep = Fiery

Dueling

Judges: Catiana, Aldrisian

Location: The Aspirant's Ring

Time: 4:00 PM ST

Description: Duelers will choose whether to engage in an actual duel, or a roll battle upon signing up. The duels will go on simultaneously. You -can- sign up for both.

Roll: A battle that takes place entirely in emotes. After each action, each player will roll to see if the action was successful. Attacks must be written as a "potential". Example:

"Catiana summons a fireball and shoots it towards Aldrisian."
Catiana rolls 38.
Aldrisian rolls 12.
"Aldrisian takes the fireball with a grunt, then rushes towards Catiana with his sword at the ready, attempting to slash into her chest."
Catiana rolls 90.
Aldrisian rolls 89.
"Catiana ducks out of the way, but just barely, landing on the dirty ground."

Judgement will be very important for this. For example, if Catiana is dueling with her husband and accidentally wounds him badly, she may fail her next roll due to the shock of hurting her husband. Catiana will be judging this.

Duel: A best-two-out-of-three, tournament style dueling match. The rules for this are as follows: Duelists may not leave the ring unless feared/mind controlled/etc., and leaving the ring will first result in a warning, and then disqualification if the offense is repeated. If a warning is issued, the round of dueling between the two starts over. Only self-buffs are allowed. Aldrisian will be judging this.

Prizes:
First Place: 500 gold
Second Place: 250 gold

Jousting

Judge: Honadan

Location: The Ring of Champions

Time: 5:30 PM ST

Description: A tournament-style jousting match. Jousters may not leave the ring. Similar to dueling, a warning will be given first, and then disqualification. The joust will reset upon a warning being given. It is believed that you must be at least level 77 to participate in this. Please, make sure you are able to joust before signing up!

Prizes:
First Place: 500 gold
Second Place: 250 gold

Contestants may stand wherever they would like on the hill, jump whenever they would like in the direction of the Grounds (NE), and may deploy their chosen slowfall method whenever they would like. Contestants must stand still when they touch the ground, or else be disqualified. Any damage taken also disqualifies the fallers.

All of the rules will be repeated upon request at signups, and at the beginning of every event.

This event will be entirely In Character, and is open to all roleplayers. If successful, I will repeat this event again during the winter. I will be making an ingame calendar event, so if you would like to attend but you do not see the calendar event, let me know here and I'll add you. Thanks everyone for reading! This is gonna be lots of fun! :D

Yeah...I logged on, sat around and listen to people be confused about the lack of people in SW, and by the time 2 Server came around, there were, like, six people in the channel. XD
