    While kelmo and I were visiting Brit, we popped in to see EM Alcor. He wasn't there, but looking around, we found this book, so i thought I would share with you his plans.

    Valentine's Day is almost upon us and it is time for us to think about love and
    affection once more. However, there is more to love than just kisses and
    chocolates. Love can manifest itself in many of the Virtues, and this will be
    the theme of our Valentine events on Saturday, 14th February.

    The main event will take place at 7pm EST (midnight GMT) when nine
    commemorative, uniquely named roses will be on offer as prizes. All types of
    character have a chance of winning a prize, including those with no skills at
    all (so I want to see some NEW guild members there!)

    Later on, at 9pm EST (2am GMT), a tournament will be taking place when a further
    two roses will be awarded to the winning team. Each team will consist of one
    male mage and one female non-mage. However, so as not to restrict participants
    too much, as long as the mage is wearing a robe and the non-mage a plain dress,
    I will not be checking what is underneath!

    Tournament Rules

    Teams consist of two players. Only one team member can cast spells
    (magery/necromancy/spellweaving).
    The mage must be wearing a standard robe, the non-mage must wear a plain dress.
    Both items must be dyed the same color. No shrouds may be worn during the duels.

    No pets or summons.
    No hiding/invis.
    No fields.
    No faction items, either equipped or in backpacks.

    No stealthing within the tournament building.

    Tournament location is yet to be determined. If the Siege community wishes to
    choose one itself, please do so.

    EM Alcor is please to announced that he can now perform official wedding
    services for the citizens of Siege. Any service includes the provision of rings
    for the bride and groom, engraved with the messages of your choice (within
    reason!).

    To discuss your requirements for the happy day, please leave your [character]
    names in this book together with an email address where I can contact you.

    Thank you!

    *translated for the visualy challenged* Thank you Luka for posting this...

    so i can wear a dress and compete as a warrior even though my character is male?

    Kind of sexist how only the male can be a mage.
     
  8. Heh...you think?

    Seems rather bizarre. I'm a warrior, not a mage, so it doesn't affect me at all, but still...!

    Thanks Kelmo for the translation. I was mysteriously turned into jelly last night and was doing good to get the screenshots up.

    I will see what I can do about getting any questions anyone has answered.

    I spoke with EM Alcor and he had some answers to your questions. He informed me that it doesn't matter if the mage or non-mage is male or female, just that the mage will wear the robes and the non-mage will wear the dress. He said it is just a bit of silly fun for Valentines Day.

    As for thieves, he had this to offer. He said that anyone stealthing around this Counselor's Hall or any Councilor's Hall where an event is taking place, the stealthing will be considered disruptive behaviour. Therefore he will point them out to everyone. Anywhere outside the Hall is none of his concern.

    Then we spoke of the tournament still needing a host. So if anyone has a tournament hall and would like to volunteer, please let me know and I will pass that along to the EM.

    Thanks!
