    Harvest Festival
    When: Friday, November 1st, 7 pm east coast time.
    Where: Lycaeum (Can be accessed by using the North/West teleporter located in the hedges center of Moonglow)
    The Events planned are a Feast, Musical Chairs; And No festival is complete unless there is a JOUST! (The scavenger hunt has been moved to another day due to time issues on my part)
    Who is the best warrior in the land? Who is the Scariest Red, the Most Noble paladin? All citizens are welcome to enter. They can do so by paying the entry fee of 10,000 gold (in check form), a book with your name, your choice of 2-handed weapon, and your race. Place the book and check in a bag and drop it off in the mailbox at the vendor house located beside The Golden Pickaxe on the east side of Moonglow. This allows me to have rewards and a bracket made up before the event. I will allow entries the day of.
    Joust Details
    This is a traditional style mounted joust (gargoyles can fly). Players will start on opposing ends of a pre-determined track. When instructed they will run forward directly at each other at a medium to slow pace to ensure a swing (you could hit, you could miss) without stopping. Player will continue until reaching the place their opponent was in, and then wait until instructed to make another pass. This will continue until one player falls lifelessly to the ground.
    Disclaimer: this contest is just as much for show as a competition and to keep it as true to life as possible Warrior skills (swords, mace, lumberjack, fencing,) will have an upper hand due to the rules. However, if all goes well other competitions will follow that are designed to give other player types an upper hand. Ex. Mage duels, Archery Bouts, Mixed fighting, Team battles (defend the fort) Therefore interest and good being a good sport is paramount.

    Rules
    · No throwing or Archery weapons
    · No outside weapons or armor (weapons and armor will be provided; I will allow an exception to this rule. See below)
    · All Weapons will be Two handed
    · No wearable or drinkable Mods (4 pots will be given 1 strength, 1 agility, 2 refresh)
    · No Healing of Any Kind (it would take all night otherwise)
    · No Counts ( this is to the Death; but for fun)
    · No Magic of Any Kind
    · Pack must be empty before entering the ring (this includes spell and rune books.) – It will check to ensure fairness.



    Prizes
    Half of the Entry fees (the rest will be payment for those helping host)
    Pumpkin with Craving Kit
    Honesty Virtue tile
    Some Priceless Treasure
    And the Best Reward of All – Bragging Rights.
    (There are many more items) Awards vary upon placement (of course 1st, 2nd, and 3rd will be given more)

    I could really use some help setting up and running the festival; Ru has already crafted the armor and has agreed to craft the weapons. I need a person or two to deco the Lycaeum and prep the jousting ring. I could also use one person to check the packs of contestants and to give the provided armor to the contestant going in and take the armor back once they exit. It would help make the process smoother. (Message Me or Find me In Game)
    **exception to outside armor is that since there are elements of RP involve one can wear a suit fashioned in the town colors they represent. For example Moonglow’s colors are blue and yellow – so the armor is made of Valorite and Gold. If one was representing Yew the metal choice would be Shadow/Verite. The Armor Must be a player made chain/plate suit or plate suit, No imbuing, and made with a regular hammer (no runic). The basic rule no mods on armor. The armor must be approved please message me to meet once you have it and I will approve it as soon as I can.

    Alright that is it…. I hope to see you guys there. Please feel free to ask question and comment.
    Thanks
    York

    Governor of Moonglow

    As the self proclaimed groundskeeper of the Lycaeum, Talia can make furniture and whatnot to decorate the place!

    Thank you all for the support,
    Talia, let me know when you are going to be in game and I will get you the lumber. I can also make you the Official grounds keeper (title and all).
    Dan, I will gladly accept your help. About the poison, I have thought a lot about that, on one hand jousting has traditionally had poisonous lances but they were naturally poisonous (which would be more like poison damage than a poisoned weapon). That is why I decided not to allow it, I must have forgot to place that in the rules. Good question, thank you.
    Startle I couldn't agree with you more.

    I know it may be a bit pre-mature to assume but I have noticed that there are 0 entries in the mailbox. This makes me wonder if something is wrong with the time, rules, or details of the joust. I am pretty flexible and more than willing to hear improvements or to address complaints. This is the first major player event that I have put together alone so input is welcome.

    That is great Kelmo, If you would like get player made Plate/chain suit made up in your town's colors, just no mods on the armor since they aren't healing.
    I would like to Remind anyone interested that you need to Register so I can have your weapon choice made up and a Bracket made. These weapons will have Mods such as repond and Mage weapon. To keep from overloading Ru (smith) any player that signs up on the day of the even will have to Take what weapons we have left over.
    So to register;
    • get a bag and place in it a Book with name of character, Race, weapon choice, and if they need a special mod like MAGE or Use Best Weapon. Plus entry fee of 10k.
    • place the bag in the mailbox located east of the artist shack on Moonglow. (normally called the Golden Pickaxe Vendors - It now states the entries are placed here)
    I will be closing off Weapon Choices Tomorrow Evening,

    When I get some more time today i will post some screen shots of prizes and of the ring.

    Thanks again too all that are supporting this event and a special thanks to all that are giving up some time to make it come together.

    Here... I spent 45 minutes looking for the place. I went over the edge and ranted. I still have no idea where the Golden Pickaxe is... But some really cool folks helped me out and found it. Luka came and took a pic.

    Here it is!

    Doh... my fault completely I have been using a map of Moonglow and didn't realize the building didn't have a sign on it. The building left of the vendor house is the Golden pick-axe. Thanks for the feedback Kelmo.
