5th of the Eclipse, 66 AC
Welcome, denizens of Zhul-Enarion! Wiccans, Brennans, Norns, Vlachians, Rovnians, Vetrii, Glarynnari, Velnari, People of Yeon-Guo, Hazdian Dwarves and Albans! I, Cifesboren of the Bag, welcome you to a long festivity to celebrate the prosperity and culture of our great lands! For too long have we been consumed by thoughts of war, bogged down by aggressions and hostilities - we have been unable to appreciate the finer points of life! Culture, class, hedon, pleasure, enterprise - completely neglected and shunned in favour of blood and steel! Truly, a tragedy if there ever was one.
But not more! I invite you all for a festival of culture, a festival that will proudly display the beauties, depth, intricacies and complexities of peoples across the world! Furthermore, a chance for common folk who have yet to make their mark in the annals of history to rear their heads, and declare their presence! What are you waiting for, dear reader. Make your preparations! Dally no further, sign yourself up, and anxiously await your destiny of wealth, riches, and perhaps a fair sir or maiden from a nation over!
On the 6th of the Eclipse, 66 AC, [OOC: 3 EST, Saturday] gather at the Tourney Grounds of Enarion, which the Nomads so selflessly keep, so this barbaric continent may have some semblance of culture, and prepare your hearts to witness the spectacle! The Festival will host the following tournaments:
The Tournoi de Enarion IV -
You all know it, you all love it, one big tournament between the peoples, only this time - with a completely new land, and welcome to all the world’s people, not only those fortunate enough to have afforded themselves city walls. However, for brevity’s sake, we will be hosting only the three person melee, welcome to all the invited nations!
[OOC] Prize: 1st Place Team: 3 Mithril Weapons, 100 Gold, 3 Crates, 5 Influence
2nd Place Team: 3 Steel Weapons, 25 Gold, 75 Community Points, 3 Influence
3rd Place Team: 10 Gold, 30 Community Points.
The Battle of Beauty -
An all out fashion duel between the people of the world, displaying our fashion trends proudly, and showing the entire world the beauty of our people! Each culture to enter will provide one outfit - one male and one female, to be judged by a panel of judges - the caveat being, these judges are neither Enarion or Zhul! Completely unbiased in every way, the culture to prevail shall be well spoken of in foreign lands!
[OOC] Prize: 1st Place Team: 50 Gold, 10 Influence
2nd Place Team: 15 Gold, 5 Influence
3rd Place Team: 9 Gold,
The Race of Zhul-Enarion -
An all out, day long race, on a set track, from Hazduun, past the ruins of Valora, to the soon ruins of Aellen, across the ivory-coloured towers of Miruvor, across the Airon past the ruins of old Vlachia, past the valley of Promdor, across Westholm and crossing into Ynslee, past Braighdun and the Nornish Camp, and finally through to the City of Nex, and then across the route back all the way to the Tourney Grounds! The winner shall surely earn his fame as the world’s greatest cavalryman, with the world’s greatest steed, winning the world’s greatest race, a true marathon.
[OOC] Prize: 1st Place Team: 10 Gold, 3 Influence
Second Place Team: 5 Gold, 2 Influence
Third Place Team: 3 Gold, 1 Influence
The Battle of the Minds -
A long, elaborate tournament of King’s Board (OOC: Chess), to clearly decide who is Zhul-Enarion’s greatest strategist!
[OOC] Prize: 1st Place Team: 10 Gold
Second Place Team: 5 Gold
Third Place Team: 2 Gold
In addition to these wonderful competitions, games of chance, drinking tables and social venues will be provided to those who do not wish to compete - should you be interested in none of the aforementioned competitions, come regardless! Cheer your countrymen on and earn the chance of winning your fortune at one of our many tables! Beyond this…
CIFESBOREN’S FAMED AUCTION OF MIRACLE ITEMS WILL RETURN! You heard it right, plebeian, the “Bag Man” returns with his many gifts, allowing all of you the chance to score some big ticket items! Do not take this lightly, as the items provided in this auction will at times far exceed what the last had in store. The Auction will take place after every tournament concludes.
If any of the invited members of this festival wish to set up a stall, merely take up a stall at your pleasure, leaving me a letter! [OOC: Contact Zvyxx]
[OOC Notes:] You may only compete in either the melee, racing or the chess game, as they will be occurring simultaneously. Everyone invited is entitled to put candidates in each category. Anyone may participate in the chess tournament. You may only buy one thing at the auction per person. You cannot get your friends to bid if the purchase is for you - you can however, borrow money from friends. You may not attack anyone at this festival. Participants must be of that culture.
