    Hi warriors and artisans,
    To the recommendation of the king and Ilshenar “Cyclops Arena” Master, myself, we decided to reopen this long time forgotten arena!
    What was it used for? This arena host a PvM tournament, but also is a competition between teams. It is likely to be very intense and deadly. In the end, good communication and tactics are a requirement to come out on top.
    Spectators? Spectators are more than welcome of course, there are stands for you guys. But why not give it a shot? You never know, you might have a blast. This is a trial run so places are limited. However we do have room for 40 players (10 teams) on the floor so there will probably be room to spare.
    Rules: Teams, please be sure to get to Blackthorn Castle Courtyard by registration opening time at 6:30pm PST. We will have to go on a first come basis if we get more than ten teams.
    To participate in "Forge Wars":
    * A team of up to four players. Having less than four will put you at a severe disadvantage. If you have trouble filling your team, try your luck with a forum post or perhaps seek out solo players on the night.
    * Your team must have GM or better Blacksmith and GM or better Mining. These two skills may be on separate players. The rest of the skills are open, but you will need good firepower and tactical co-operation.
    * For team registration on the night, please prepare an in-game book with your member's names listed on the first page. Your blacksmith should be listed first.
    * You may wear any equipment you wish, excepting bracelets of binding or other summoning items.
    * All members must have empty backpacks with the exception of spellbooks. All other items need to be equipped.
    * No pets or mounts will be allowed, this includes ethereal types. (My apologies to tamers. I'll make it up to ya!)
    Note : A general combat resource kit will be supplied at the event. It contains reagents, bandages, and crafting tools. (The contents of the kit are open for discussion after the trial run for future run)
    If things go smooth and you guys have a good time, I'm hoping we can turn it into something regular, perhaps doing one every other month. Also we can easily modify it for other crafting professions.
    See you at the arena guys.
    Baldoric Cyclop Arena Master
    NEW NOTE: Spellbooks will be allowed to be carried in your pack when registering for this event. I was going to supply them, but decided to make it “bring your own”. You'll be asked to remove them for a moment during event check-in, but yep, they can be brought in your backpack. The remove thing and check not sure to happen, but I warn you in case it does.
    Be at the Blackthorn Castle Courtyard for registration gate at 6:30pm PST. The registration will close at 7:00pm PST and the main event will start around 7:00pm PST. *** Gates will be open from around 6:50pm PST for spectators, they will be at the Brit. EM Hall and Blackthorn Castle courtyard as well. We are waiting all of you for a great night filled with fun!
