The Festival of Masks Summer is in the air. The sunshine, the warmth, beautiful beach weather. What better place to celebrate it than the humid subtropical City of Pleasure, Nujel’m? The Festival of Masks will commence Thursday June 18th, at 9pm CST, in the Felucca facet (no worries, the town guards will protect you). Anyone wearing a mask will be considered part of “the game”. The games rules are simple. You must pretend to not know anyone else in a mask. There shall be food, drink, and revelry for all. Throughout the Festival a masked man will walk the crowd. He will carry within his backpack the “Eye of Dahsk”. The primary objective of the game is to find this prize, steal it, and turn it over to the Festival’s Master of the Ceremonies. The winner of the game will be recognized in the Hall of Champions. Moongates will be provided within the guard zone of Brit’s Fel Moongate, to offer safe passage to the town for those without runes. For you thieves without snooping, fear not. The one whom carries the eye will keep very few objects in his pack, to allow for a “random steal” to be made (targeting the person or his pack with stealing instead of snooping first). Thieves of any skill level should be able to participate, as long as their character is a member of the thieves guild. If you have at least 60 stealing, and your character has logged 48 hours or more of time in game, then you are set to join. A thief guildmaster can be found in every Britannian town, Fel or Tram. I suggest looking in Cove, since it is so small. You’d be best not to bring any valuable items that you cannot insure or bless. You can never trust such a high collection of thieves in one area, even with the ever vigilent town guards. Thief or tamer, human or elf, PvM’er or PvP’er, blue or red, there should be fun for all at the Festival of Masks! Hope to see you all Thursday!
