    Spring Festival 2011

    Friday, April 15


    Hosted by both YEW and TWT, under the banner of the alliance "A Sosarian Empire", this past weekend we attended the Spring Festival Friday evening and all day Saturday.

    From Sunwolf of YEW:

    The marksmanship competitions were enjoyed by all in attendance. Although I doubted the wisdom of serving such potent wine to people armed with sharp pointy things, no one was injured or killed during the festivities. Suprisingly few steps were blocked with passed out revellers.

    I arrived in time to see many prominent citizens from Yew's glory days in attendance. A few of us who had not been to Dawn's Graveside went to pay our respects.

    Thankfully only one child was bitten at the Undead Petting Zoo. A fun evening for those in attendance. I particularily enjoyed Draken's Triva of Old Yew Guilds. I grew up in Yew and have many fond memories of my youthful days there.


    Well done & thank you, People of YEW.

    Saturday, April 16


    Saturday's events started promptly at 1:00 pm EST. We arrived at Sinful Candie's Vendor Emporium expecting something special. An Event gate had graciously been set up by EM Bennu. Our Hostess guided us through a tastefully decorated garden to the roof to take our first look at VIRTUE LAND.

    VIRTUE LAND is a real working board game that is creatively unique and lots of fun to play. Roll the dice and navigate your way around the board trying to avoid poor rolls and pitfalls. Lady Sinful Candie is graciously leaving it up for awhile. I highly recommend gathering a bunch of friends to go play it before its gone. A truely original event that was very enjoyable.

    The Virtue Land Game Winners were:

    1st Game - MM
    2nd Game - Corinthian
    3rd Game - KA

    "The Kissing Booth"

    "Retro Duel"

    Many brave wizards and warriors came to enter an old fashion retro duel and battled it out in the mage or warrior division. Rules were very basic in this event with skills being your primary ally just like the old days.

    The Retro Duel Winners were:

    1st - Acheron
    2nd - Gotter
    3rd - Demon

    "Sexiest Legs Contest"


    We didn't quite have enough participants for a separate male/female division so we opened it up to different species. The judging panel included Tabitha of TWT, Isk of Magincia and myself. It is hard to be impartial when there is a yummy set of chicken legs involved.

    The Sexiest Legs Contest Winners were:

    1st - Southern Devil
    2nd - Lanarayla
    3rd - Semmerset

    "Tinker Box Game"

    This Game although fairly simple was a great deal of fun. Participants paid an entry fee and were let out into the Tinkered boxes to select which box they would like to risk opening. Some Boxes held an explosive surprise and some held prizes of "lesser value". The "lesser value" prizes were the most fun. I had the pleasure of winning a "Start Your Own Dance Studio Guide and Suit as well as a Fire Elemental Costume pictured below. Congrats to the creative mind that thought these prizes up. You had us laughing in the isles.

    "Spring Festival Conclusions"

    What an amazing amount of work put forward from the folks of YEW and TWT. I look forward to attending next years Festival although I have a hard time imagining how your group is going to top the effort of your members and the fun that your guests had. Not since Xanthyrella's famous Wintermoor events have I personally attended an event that was as well done and entertaining.

    If you could not attend this past weekend, I urge you to go look at the TWT Event House, such is the intricate work done by Sinful Candie. The Runebook is still on the steps of Goodman's Makuto and is worth the trip. Thank you to YEW and TWT for the fabulous fun filled Spring Festival 2011
