    Greeting!

    I have reason to celebrate towards the end of this month, and so I shall be hosting a party to coincide with it! On January 31st around 8:00 EST, inside Castle Blackthorn, we'll be celebrating. We'll celebrate King Blackthorn, EM Avalon, and anything else we can think to celebrate.

    We'll begin with a jousting tournament to begin the night, then move onto dinner. Archers will compete to earn the favor of nobles, then sailors will participate in the ultimate sailors' competition: Small Boat Sailing. After the sailors recover in the bar, we'll move onto cow tipping and conclude with the Closing Ceremonies. Each event will have a reward to coincide with it, both honorary and practical.

    Represent your city, and earn the respect of its citizens! I cannot speak for other Governors, but citizens of Britain will be granted a special title for participating (and winning - you are of Britain after all).

    Take this as your invitation to the First Annual Britannian Ball - everyone is welcome, and I hope to see you!

    This sounds 95% lovely.
    The 8:00 PM EST bit kills it for me, though. :(

    I'll try to make accommodations so that you may attend at least some of it.

    Regarding the Jousting Competition:
    Lances will be provided that have Use Best Weapon Skill, and Mage Weapon -25. Jewelry will be provided for those who need to compensate the magery loss. And shields will be provided to those who prefer to wield one. Also, uniforms will be provided based on what city you wish to represent during the celebration - so leave your polished armor, weapons, and jewelry at home. Anyone who is found guilty of wearing anything but that which is provided, will be disqualified.

    From UOguide's page on lances:

    "As of Publish 21 it's Dismount attack functions in a different way to other weapons. It may only be used while mounted and riding against characters who are also holding a lance. Dismounting in this manner will not inflict fall damage on the opponent."

    And with the addition of arenas, we may hold organized jousting inside the rule set enforced by King blackthorn all across the trammel facet.

    Does a mage have to have tactics to use the special's?

    As I understand it, a Mage will require 70 tactics and a fighting skill to use the dismount attack. The main reason the lances will have a Mage weapon property is for those who have higher magery than fighting skill, will have their magery factored into their hit chance instead of the fighting skill. But you bring up a fair point; the jewels will have +15 magery, +15 fencing, +30 tactics. The lances will have mw-20, ubws, lower requirements, and damage increase.

    This will leave participants requiring 40 tactics, 55 fencing, and as much or little magery as they'd like. Will this accommodate you properly?

    We'll be dancing the whole while! The competitions are just distractions from the dancing - how long can one dance before they're exhausted?

    From personal experience, 18 hours. My feet were bleeding after that, but it was darn worth to welcome Spring like that in 2010, bloody heck.
