With the 9th Rares Festival on Catskills coming to a close this evening, I thought it appropriate to begin discussions for the next festival. I would like to put in a bid to co-host the next festival along with several other former festival hosts including Gunga Din, Athelas, Demonous, Lykor. As this will be the 10th installment of the Rares Festival I would like to celebrate it by bringing it to Japan, specifically Sakura. The festival will feature the following - all of which are subject to change: - A silent auction (similar to the one on Chesapeake) - 50/50 Raffles - Event Rare Raffles - A Scavenger Hunt - Several other player run games. - Rez Killing Athelas Contest All player run events/games will be designed so that all may participate regardless of skill level. Also, I have already spoken with Mesanna and have her support to assist as she has done with the past festivals. So, there it is...lets hear what everyone has to say.
