    Posted to the EM news site;​

    Here is a list and short description for the events we’re hoping to hold for this year’s Britannian Games. Human chess was removed as it simply requires too many people for too long a period of time. Other than that it is basically the same as last year, only we hope for it to go a little smoother and actually finish this time around.

    We will be holding a meet and greet soon where the Games will be a focus and an opening ceremony date and time will be set. So bring your comments and questions, and let’s make this year’s Games a blast!

    • Foot Race
    • Archery Tournament
    • Big Fish Tournament
    • Zoo Taming Contest
    • Sosarian Regatta
    • Baking Tournament
    • Ore Elemental Mining Contest
    • Lumberjack Contest
    • Horse Race
    • PvP Duel Tournaments
    • Naked Dungeon Run
    • Dart Tournament

    Event Rules and Regulations -

    Foot Race:

    The Foot Race will begin in the City of Umbra’s North West Entrance. All participants will depart from that point on the given signal and proceed towards the City of Luna on a set course. The First person to reach the South Gate of the City will be declared the winner! No participant is allowed the use of the Spell recall and an impartial Judge will be following the progress of the lead participant to ensure no use of Mounts occurs. Cheating will result in disqualification from this event.

    The Foot Race Course!


    Archery Tournament:

    All participants of the Archery Tournament will gather outside the Bagball Arena in Luna. The Tournament will provide Standard Bows, and Arrows for use, no player may use a non-standard bow. The Tournament will be Single elimination till the Quarter Final round; at this point it will progress to a double elimination event in order to provide accurate rankings of the final 8 participants. Use of non-provided weapons will result in disqualification.

    Big Fish Tournament:

    All participants of the Big Fish Tournament will be given 2 hours to attempt to fish up a big fish. The heaviest weight wins with the next heaviest taking second, third heaviest third and so on. An EM or two will oversee the events to verify the fish are in fact fresh caught. Use of an older fish will result in disqualification. Participants will launch their ships from the Trinsic Docks.

    Zoo Taming Contest:

    All Participants will meet and register at the Moonglow Zoo in Trammel. Participants will be given 1 hour to tame animals and accumulate as many points as possible within the allotted time frame.

    Sosarian Regatta:

    Participants will launch from Zento and follow the defined course to each checkpoint. At the Checkpoint they will be required to disembark from the ship, retrieve an item from one of the event staff and return to their ship and proceed to the next check point. The First to complete the circuit and return with all the items will be declared the winner. Event staff will record the names of those obtaining items at each check point to verify. No one may leave their ship except at Checkpoints, anyone one found to be cheating will be disqualified.

    The Regatta Course!


    Baking Tournament:

    Players will have 5 minutes to create as many cakes as possible. In the event of a tie, a second round will occur until the field is narrowed to determine a champion. The Event will be held in New Haven.

    Ore Elemental Mining Contest:

    Players will have 1 hour to mine up and kill as many Ore Elementals as possible. The Victor will be the person who returns with the most Ingots from his excursion if necessary a tie breaker will be used. Participants are not to leave the designated area! No Use of Mining Gloves is allowed. The Start location for this event will be at the Spirituality Gate in Ilshenar. The Winner will be rewarded with half the total ingots gathered by all participants, the Second place finisher will get 2/3 the Remainder. The Third place finisher will get the remainder of the lot. For example if a total of 5000 ingots are harvested, the winner gets 2500 of them of every variety. The Second place winner would get 1666 Ingots, 2/3 of all that remain of each type. The Third Place finisher would receive 854 ingots of the reminder of the 5000 original total. If a player fills his or her pack with ingots, they must deliver them to a judge to hold until the end, tally will be noted for adding to their final total.

    Lumberjack Tournament:

    Players have 1 hour to harvest as many logs as possible. They will deliver them to the judges as their packs are filled. Judges will keep a tally of how many logs each person turns in. The Participant who turns in the largest total of logs wins the tournament, with a special tie breaker if necessary. Prizes will be similar to the Ore Elemental Mining where the top three finishers receive the logs gathered as prizes.

    Horse Race:

    Held at the Yew Horse Track. Races will consist of 5 laps, winners of each heat will progress to the next round.

    PvP Duel Tournament:

    We will probably be holding two separate tournaments for this, a typical mage duel tournament and a melee tournament. Melee fighters may be provided with basic armor and weps to even the field a bit, but that isn’t certain yet. This event will take place at the Felucca cave house.

    Naked Dungeon Run:

    This is exactly how it sounds. A race through a dungeon while naked. The actual dungeon to use will be determined in the future.

    Darts Tournament:

    Darts Tournaments will follow the same guidelines as Archery Tournaments.

    Bagball Tournament:

    We are currently reviewing new methods and rules to Bagball to keep the game fair with modern times. As such there is a possibility Bagball will not be an event in this year’s Games. If we do hold a tournament for it it will be the finale event.
