    I will post who won what in this thread. I hope everyone enjoyed the Fest and the Events. We have non-stop spent over 6 months on this. Day and night, non stop. Aside from the donations, we spent over 500M of our own gold, to ensure that we offer a fun and exciting weekend for the community and the shard of Atlantic. Also aside from the Harbingers that were SCHEDULED for events, there were 20 randomly spawned Harbingers at the Rares Festival. They were not spawned by Rares Fest staff, so If you lost something, please don't come kill us. :)

    Once again, at any Rares Festival, please do not go AFK in the lawn. It is ill advised and will almost always result in a random death. From the 20 Harbingers, Rares Fest staff obtained 9 Garbs.

    Closing Ceremony:
    The Closing Ceremony was scheduled to be at 9PM Eastern Standard Time tonight. Only 7 people showed up and we figured its because Game of Thrones was on. LOL
    Here is a recap of the Closing Ceremony, because some things needs to be said, and some people need to see it.

    The Rares Fest Staff would like to thank everyone for coming. As Queen said in the opening ceremony, all this was for you guys. We enjoyed it as much, if not more than anyone else that attended. We would like to thank all the contributors who donated either gold, items, or time for the festival:

    - Nabin 500M
    - Decadence 200M
    - Lucky Luciano 100M
    - Angel Dust 100M
    - Adeka 100M
    - Nallez 50M
    - Wolf Mast - Mapbook
    - Outcry - 15 Toad Masks
    - DR Pet - 5 Toad Masks
    - Matty O' No - 4 Harbinger Crystals
    - Buns Of Glory - Glacial Blue Hair Dye

    Captain Norrington - Helped Us Alot With Things For The Fest
    DR Pet - Helped Us Alot With Things For The Fest
    Matty O' No - Helped Us Alot With Things For The Fest

    Without you guys, this fest wouldn't have been possible. We personally, send our thanks to everyone who helped, participated, and those who attended. I hear Lineman is planning the next Fest for Pacific. I can't wait to attend. :)

    Thanks everyone

    P.S. Backpack art and vendor contest will be announced on here soon.

    Let Them Eat Cake!!

    What is a Birthday without cake? In order to celebrate Alexander's birthday, we need to retrieve his stolen Birthday Cake. Reports have concluded that a bunch of thieving bandits came into Toad Town in the middle of the night, and stole this five-foot cake. To hide the real cake, in-case of an emergency, they have made several duplicates. We have sent out some spys to seek out the Bandit hideout, in charge is none other than Sneaky Toad. With success, we have found the base, along with the many duplicates, guarded by "Cake Eating Monsters". Fight your way through and retrieve my (Alexanders) cake! Gates will be provided to the hideout. Return the Birthday Card that came with the REAL cake and win a special reward, hand picked from my personal collection. More information will be given at the time of the event.


    Reward:
    - Unwilling Victim Of Bellatrix Adhara's Crystal Widow Abomination
    - Web


    Winner: Stinky

    Players will be assigned a numbered toad and will be gated to a secluded area in Felucca where the toads will be roaming. The objective is to find your numbered toad and protect it whilst trying to kill the other toads! The Last Toad Standing is the winner.

    (Right before the event, we had everyone go to the stage and pose for us. So we could take a picture. Right before we were going to head to my house, someone decided to pop 4 Harbingers and killed nearly everyone participant for this event. The Rares Festival staff did not spawn them, and we apologize for anyone who lost stuff or if it ruined peoples fun.)

    We saw Blend attacking AnAn, it was hilarious!! LOL

    I will pick up the tab on the 500 mil you guys put in out of your own pockets.

    You all put in way to many hours and care into this event for the community. That is enough in my eyes. I am traveling pretty heavy this week but icq me and I will have the funds transferred to you all.
