Calling all blacksmiths and their apprentices! We at the Center have a problem and need your help urgently! With the dangerous Urks nearby our guards are in need of armor. Unfortunately it gets worse. Our forges are in the West tower. The cantankerous old quartermaster requires that we store all arms and armor in the Center tower. No, wait, it gets even messier. Our ingot shipment came in but those lazy caravan drivers delivering the ingots from the mines in Minoc delivered the ingots to the East tower...something about union regulations and the Urks eating their pack animals... The blacksmiths and their apprentices will be handed an order for a suit of armor of a desired ore type, our guards like to look flashy, and will be given 50 ingots. Now, 50 ingots wont get you very far so I hope your apprentices wore their running sandals because they will have to run and get you more from the East tower. However, due to all the shady characters trying to pass off shoddy goods in the past, our quartermaster won't release more ingots without having armor in hand. So to get more ingots your apprentice must first deliver the completed GM-marked pieces to him at the armory in the Center tower where he will be given a manifest to release another 50 ingots from the stores in the East tower. Oh yeah, for security reasons the doors to the towers will remain locked so you will have to go up and over. Apprentices will have to be wary, because the other apprentices will be trying to impress their masters with their ingot-fetching prowess and may throw up obstacles to delay their counterparts. Only the fastest and most productive teams will advance to the final round. The first teams to deliver their orders complete to the quartermaster will advance to the next round. The rules: No combat or damaging spells of any kind. Strictly blocking only. No mounts or summons allowed. Ingots will be provided, no cheating by bringing extra. Number of teams allowed to advance in each round is subject to the number or teams competing. Final round will consist of the 3 remaining teams. As usual, rules subject to change or additions because I typically forget something. Teams must consist of 2 unique players, not one guy running 2 clients. The prizes: First Prize is 20 platinum pieces awarded to the winning team to be split at their discretion Second Prize is 16 platinum pieces to be split at the team's discretion Third Prize is 12 platinum pieces to be split at the team's discretion. If I can sweet talk Telamon into some trophies, maybe that too. When: Sunday, March 9th Yeah, but when Sunday?: 7pm CST Where: Sosarian Event Center across from Compassion Desert. Hope to see you there! Credit for this event goes to that clever old wizard Jupiter for coming up with the idea and to Edward Teach who gave away his possessions upon departing the shard, the prize purse is the 48 plat he gave to me.
