    EM Helios hosted a raucous round of Mage Poker at the Jhelom pens tonight, thoughtfully laying down a thick layer of hay beforehand. Mages from all corners of Legends attended to show off their summoning talents, and the result was nothing short of bedlam!

    After five rounds we had our finalists. Tarzan, Damia, Sunlaira, Dr Moreau and Faith gathered around for the last draw. EM Helios hesitated a moment and then called out the final hand.... three slimes! The five pushed and struggled, arms flying and beasts bellowing. At last Faith produced the winning hand.

    Congratulations Faith!

    Events like this are great.
    Gives everyone a chance to do something, to participate, without battling high powered critters. Any char can play!

    Now...if they can figure out how to run a "grief free" battle chess match! ;)

    It was fun, i have always been partial to mage poker :) We should do this again sometime soon. Congrats Faith!!!

    Our EM's are doing a great job, they have come up with unique and interesting things to do that are fun, and it's always fun to get the shard together.
