    Game time to follow. Meet at the Luna Stage.
    Each game pits two teams of 2 to 6 members each against each other. Both teams start on opposite sides of the Hockey rink. near their respective goals. The Puck will be dropped in the center of the ice, and a referee stands nearby. The referee counts “one, two, three” On “three” play begins and all participants race toward the center in an attempt to be the first to control the hockey puck.
    Players grab and drag the puck around the ice hoping to get it into the opposition’s goal. The team that doesn’t have control of the puck may attempt to grab and gain control of it at any point.
    The referee will signal goals, the end of the first half, and the end of the game.The game will have two 20 minute halves with a 3 to 5 minute interval at halftime. The referee will also signal the end of the game and declare the winning team.
    At the end of the match, the team with the most goals wins the match. In the event of scores being tied at the end of the game, we go into overtime a Golden Goal situation will occur, resulting in the next team to score being named the winner.
    Moving the puck: The primary method is: stand next to it, lift it, drop it on the other side of you, and run past it to repeat the “lift, drop, move” process.
    Please no Trade windows: The puck may not be passed to other players by using trade windows, and intentional use of this tactic may incur a penalty. The puck should only be passed by placing it on the ground for another player (on either team) to grab.
    Scoring a goal: This is a two part process: the puck must first be drawn onto the opposition’s net line and then into the goal itself.this process allows players a fair opportunity to block the puck before it lands in the goal and prevent the score. No goal will count as official until the referee announces it as such.
    After each goal, the puck is returned to the center of the field and each team moves to their own starting positions. Play resumes at the signal of the referee. The team that scores the goal receives 1 point.
    The team that scores the most points by the end of the game wins.
    The actions listed below will incur a penalty on the player/team performing the action. When the referee declares a penalty the game will stop and both teams will move to their starting positions. The opposing team will be awarded control of the puck and the referee will signal the continuation of the game. Once the puck begins moving again, all players may begin moving.
    Holding onto the puck for more than 5 seconds without also visibly dragging it
    Using a trade window to pass the puck
    Intentionally blocking the puck with equipped items, text spam, or any other manner
    Having more than 2 teammates standing within the goal area
    Using spells or magic of any sort (other than Night Sight)
    Using purple potions (some leagues disallow use of any potions)
    Using weapons or attacking another player
    Using the Stealing skill
    Using the Hiding skill
    Using pets, including ethereal mounts
    Moving the puck outside the ice
    Dropping additional items on the ice
    Excessive unsportsmanlike behavior
    This is designed to be a fun activity for everyone.
