    Monthly and Irregular Events

    Best Shot in the Realms Tournement.

    Held (usually) the last Saturday of every month, 8:30 pm shard time at the Skara Brae Fairgrounds.

    This is a monthly contest sponsored by Misfits of Society (M!S), held in the same tradition started by Society of Archer's (S|A). Archers of Brittania can come to compete for a purse of 1 million gold and an engraved bow declaring them the monthly champion.

    Each monthly winner obtains a spot in the yearly shoot-off contest, held in early January of the next year. In this contest they earn a bigger purse and are crowned Best Shot in the Realm for the year.​

    Cartel Celebrity Death Auction.

    Howdy folks,

    Ever seen all the trash talk in the General channel and wanted a shot at those names? Here's your chance!

    Rules are simple:

    1. Each celeb can have 7 bids; the top 7 bids will win. Any bid is acceptable. Bids will be handled and organized on Stratics. Any single individual may bid on more than one celebrity. Bid winners may show up on any character. Celebs can bid on themselves and can also bid on other celebs. Celebs who bid on themselves will not be counted in the 7 top bids.

    2. On the day of the event, all 7 top bidders will have 7 minutes to kill the celeb at the same time (7 v 1). The celeb cannot hide/stealth, leave Cartel Island, go into a house or kill him/herself. Dismounts, tamers, heal stones and pots are all OK. The celebrity can fight back. Bidders may not attack each other.

    3. The bidder who gets the killshot, confirmed by having the celeb in party with a neutral, will win the pot.

    4. If the celeb is alive after 7 minutes, the celeb wins the pot and keeps the gold from the bids.

    5. Audience may not interfere with the chase. Audience members may not be attacked. Only one celebrity gank is conducted at a time.

    6. This is a PvP event. Dress accordingly.

    And that's it.​

    Girl Scout Blood Bath.

    (Seeking Description from Girl Scout Edith.)​

    Baja Roleplayers Storytelling Contest.

    To be Announced.​

    Skara Brae Faireground Bazaar.

    The Festival of Spirits.

    On September 3rd 2000 an event known as the Festival of Spirits was held to herald the completion of the Skara Brae Fairegrounds in Trammel. It was one of our shards most famous historical events - right up there with the Trinsic Invasion and the Mage Tower Allmeet Festival - and included such activities as the Championship Horse Race and 'Cinderella' by the Golden Brew Players.

    You can read the articles here.

    It has been ten long years since the original event. I don't have the time right now for such an undertaking but I wanted to put the thought out there incase a couple folks wanted to do something to mark the anniversary.​

    The Kingdom of Dawn Anniversary.

    A series of four events that celebrate the anniversary of the player-run city and township of The Kingdom of Dawn, which officially opened on February 14, 1999. The events for the 13th anniversary will run from Thursday, February 11, 2010 to Sunday, February 13, 2010 and will include a unique event, a tour of Avalon and The Kingdom of Dawn, a scavenger hunt and a Valentine's Day Ball.​

    'Description Coming Soon' would have been more accurate.

    United Tamers of Britannia and Almost Famous Knights Weekly Doom Train.

    Sunday at 11AMPST (2PMEST) (Noon MST).

    Attendees are to meet at Delucia Bank in Trammel. (More information requested.)



    As stated every Sun from Delucia Bank in Trammel, UTB/AFK will supply the gold skulls and bring anyone interested across to the Doom Guantlet to tackle the rooms and the Dark Father. Will usually stay for 2.5hrs cycling through the guantlet, no requirement to stay whole time. Usually have enough players show up to make 2 parties for the crossing - no requirement to stay partied once across to guantlet. Usually have a good mixture of fighters, archers, mages and tamers so even for a person unfamiliar to guantlet there would be someone who could give you a decent understanding of tactics, etc needed to prosper. :grouphug:

    Only requirements are a decent suit (or enough insurance gold to cover mishaps just in case), depending on room or boss you might find different weps/spellbooks advantageous but you can still do ok with whatever you feel most comfortable with. And of course a sense of humour or patience can work wonders. With the new points system most players can earn points towards an arti in a relativly short time (no guarantee that you get an arti every trip but shouldnt take too long to earn one). :thumbup1:

    Most players will heal or rez when needed, so while there is a healer NPC (he charges 5k for a rez) in Doom, if you wait a min someone will be happy to assist you getting back on your feet. :stretcher:

    If you have any questions about Doom bosses, equipment, etc please feel free to come to Delucia bank in Tram and we would be happy to answer them. Usually someone will be there around 11;30amMST or a little after as we will start to group up to leave at noon MST. Hope to see you there :popcorn:
