    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)
    All citizens are welcome to enter. To Enter you must par the entry fee of 10,000 gold (in check form), a book with your name. 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. (You can also Message me on here to enter I will be checking until 6 pm then find me in game) This allows me to have rewards and a bracket made up before the event. ***Weapon Choice Window has closed all entries can choose from pre made weapons.

    Joust Details: The Joust is the Main Event and will begin around 8 pm (east)
    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 be check to ensure fairness.
