    Pick up arms!!! It's that time of year again!! Wait, this is our first run...

    So, seeing as how January can be a bit dull, why not throw out some events for the community? Take it upon yourself to challenge the world as a fighter! I hope to get an event up and running soon, as I have returned home after my vacation. These events will be geared for fighters with melee or archery. We will meet up in a tavern and then give a beating to anything in our path. Hirelings are welcome, mounts not so much (to keep us from rushing through things). For the first event I would like a vote on what you would like the theme to be:

    I posted here since it allowed me to create a poll.

    Noble:

    Brigand:

    We also have the Knight and Viking which are armored, and finally, we have the come as you are option.

    When a date is picked and theme decided, we will meet at a tavern. On your way, bring a companion to fight along side. Perhaps, for added challenge, a lost noble and see if he can survive the daring adventure! You don't need to be the most highly skilled fighter, just don't cast a spell around us, and please, leave the instruments and pets at home.

    Catalin is well rested after his encounter with the White Witch's forces. I've voted for brigand because i have a lot of un-used brigand disguise kits.

    My vote would be we go for a certain amount of time or a set goal and we engage anything that crosses our path. Victory or Vanquish until we can't revive at all.

    Also, have a ranger class outfit! :)

    Saturday mornings or nights are the easiest time for me to get free time from family duties.

    Forget all that. Fancy dresses only. That's right, boys. Princesses.

    This sounds fun; are new characters welcome? I've been wanting to build @wylwrk 's "Butcher" for a bit now.

    That would have been really old one like 2015 maybe, Mobolin and Westra were both there. I know you posted it on the forum.

    Interested to see what is chosen! It would be tough being a noble rich kid, in his fancy cape, trying to slay a foul creature.

    Do you mean young status? I'm not sure, but any fighting skill, don't have to show off your grand master swordsmanship if you don't want to.

    I'm definitely in! Although, if the knight wins, i'm going to have to invest in some plate mail....

    Looks like Vikings are coming! Equip some suitable weapons, bronze/wooden shields would be nice if you do.

    Make sure they're bronze bronze shields. None of those Iron bronze shields, and valorite bronze shields are right out.

    first past the post voting systems are garbage,

    9 wish vikings.
    while 17 wish something else.

    Excellent decision making gentlemen.

    Hay Hadrian, in the same vein as your response, I remind you to read Wulver's original intent: This won't be the only event.
    Those 17 others, (I imagine you are included in this count) can help build something great if we build it together.

    I hear you old man.
    Any attempt to explain myself will draw things far off topic.

    Soon, may be too soon, depending on how soon, soon is.
    I'd imagine this is an exploratory proposal. I will train up what I can train by the time soon becomes sooner than later.

    So, will this be taking place on a boat? Spice it up a bit. Get thematic.
    Could have a couple visitor ships, or on a beach or something?
    Add an additional drunken last man standing after the 1v1 ?

    If not the little fighting pits are just not utilized. (not have to worry about skill reqs 7xviking)
    ^ easy but less spicy-boi

    fight takes too long and the 'lightning' round begins? *because Thor. (byo lightning wands?) *dont need to have magery ;)

    wheres the wizard, throw some ideas down.

    Like.. uh.. The Goat event..
    Tanngrisnir (the teeth-barer, snarler) and Tanngnjóstr (the teeth-grinder) aka Thors goats have to be honored.
    So.. uh.. Byo Goat.. trained or not, mountain goats accepted.
    If you do not bring a goat, you will be shamed. You do. not. want this. So you better win if you don't bring a goat. Just bring a goat.
    *The goat event may also be a drunken free for all that may or may not take place on a boat. (Last Goat on a Boat event?)
    The winner of The Goat event gets to feed Sleipnir carrots.

    ----------------
    Or is this just a lets get together and watch dudes in ringmail with parry attempt to see who runs out of shields or bandages type of affair?
