Posted across the Frozenfar, in Bendir, in Cordor, Kampo's, Khem, and Fort Wiltun is the following large scroll.

Wintertide TournamentKorthan Isharnos is proud to announce an independantly sponsored tournament to occur at the end of this tenday, when the sun still warms the ground. The tournament is to take place in the Skull Crags Lemur Monastery, in the sparring grounds behind the monastery. Any and all challengers will be allowed to come battle, including melee combatants, ranged combatants, mages, divine casters, and the like. Skilled medics will be on hand to treat injuries, but the hosts do not accept responsibility for injuries caused to spectators by accidental collateral. All fights are nonlethal. Breach of this incredibly important rule will result in the offender becoming immediate free game to all spectators and warriors in the area, with restraints against lethality unimposed. The offender will immediately be ejected from the tournament and forced to deal with any and all repercussions of their actions.

All are invited to the tournament, which is purposefully being held in a politically neutral ground. Such terms are expected to be upheld by the spectators and warriors. Breach of this incredibly important rule will result in the offender becoming immediate free game to all spectators and warriors in the area, with restraints against lethality unimposed. The hosts freely invite all merchants and traders to set up shop, and encourage buying, selling, and auctions to occur. The hosts also encourage the placing of bets, and formal announcements will be made during the set-up of fights to allows betting to happen and proceed. The tournament will be a double elimination bracket, and will be magically created in order to ensure fairness and lack of bias on the part of the hosts.

Entry fee to the tournament, if entered in advance, is 25,000 gold. On the spot entrance will be accepted for a doubled entry fee of 50,000 gold. Spectators, merchants, traders, and the like are admitted free of charge. Transportation to the combat venue can be arranged if necessary - the hosts will attempt to ensure your safe travel to the venue, but leaving will be your own arrangements. Entry fee goes to two things, being split evenly: Half goes towards increasing the grand prize gold purse, and the other half goes towards paying the creator of the grand prize trophy.

The hosts understand that the entry fee of this tournament may seem exorbitant, but also understand the general economy and purse size of the average tournament-probable adventurer that will enter the tournament. If you wish to enter, but your purse does not allow for it, speak to Korthan Isharnos personally, and you may petition for a reduced or free entry into the tournament, with the hosts covering your entry fee. The hosts keep none of the entry fee, and the entirety of it goes towards supporting the winners of the tournament, and the artists and creators who put time into making a masterpiece.

Entry fee may be paid in advance - but if you enter in advance and make your intentions known, you are still eligible to pay the reduced fee when you arrive to the tournament.


General Combat Rules of the Tournament1: All warriors (warriors being a catchall for any combatants) will be examined by the hosts for lingering magic or illegal enhancements before the fight begins. The hosts are the judges and final arbiters of all combats and situations, and their word is final. This includes Ioun Stones: They must be put to rest before fights begin.
2: Warriors as a general rule are allowed to bring their own equipment, unless the specific event dictates differently.
3: Warriors are allowed three pre fight enhancements before the fight commences. The spells will be cast roughly simultaneously so that there are no complaints of purposeful delay to run out magic durations. Fights will be announced in a "First spell - second spell - third spell - Go!" manner. Deliberate stalling will be punished with forfeit of fight.
4: While spectators are warned of the danger, deliberate harming of spectators will result in immediate disqualification. Spectators who deliberately endanger themselves or interfere with the fight will be ejected. See above rules and regulations on ejections and breaches of conduct.
5: Deliberate stalling of fights into a situation that will result in neither side winning will be judged based on context, with bias given to the aggressor or the more exciting combatant for the audience. Audience opinions will be taken into account, but the final decision rests with the Hosts.
6: Warriors will not be reimbursed for magic items spent on combat. Use expensive items at your own expense.


The PrizesThird Place: 50,000 GP
Second Place: 100,000 GP
First Place: 200,000 GP + 1/2 the entry fee take

First place also receives this tournament's grand prize trophy: A unique masterpiece created by the locally famous Djinn Merchant, Paimon. This masterpiece is being created entirely under the scrutinizing eye of the Djinn himself, and with no one externally directing his commission save for his own thoughts and creation, is sure to be a piece like no other, made entirely with his ever-high standards of quality. The hosts of the Wintertide Tournament are grateful to Paimon's acceptance to craft the trophy, and extend their personal thanks for his work invested in the tournament. As thanks, he (or a champion of his choosing) may enter the tournament free of charge, their entry fee paid by the Hosts. The hosts also encourage any and all merchants and traders to give special dealings and discounts to Paimon and his entourage as thanks for his work in makingthe grand prize possible.

Disclaimer: Any and all Officers of the Barony of the Fogwood are not eligible to win the prizes shown. While they may enter the tournament, paying entry fees as normal, their prizes, including Paimon's Grand Prize, will be deferred to the next place down, if necessary.


//This is scheduled to occur Saturday January 21st. time to be determined - when the most people can be around, essentially. Signups may be in this topic or PMed privately.

*Pipe cherried in hand, a bruised and thick knuckled hand with the wrappings of a boxer without their gloves she looked past the glow to the sign posting.* Oh. my. days. *She slackened her jaw, eyes alight with mischief as the chance set before her. She couldn't contain herself, well, when could she ever. She jumped shouting and throwing her hand in the air* Finally, a fight! *She did a short light footed dance, spinning around and making her way out, she eyed pockets and coin purses as she spun... She had to get that entry fee somehow, and people -should- pay to see her fight after all.* Hey old man Kampo! *She stops at the door, pointing to him with her tortoise embossed pipe in hand.* I'm gonna be a star, best fighter and all these people are gonna come tell you about how Sana was the fastest feet in the land. If ya pay my entry fee I'll tell 'em how great this little di-.. outpost is. *He must've not heard, or attempted not to hear, but it's not like Sana would stick around to find out. She made her way out, with a jolt in her jovial step.*

Elwyn pauses at the notice in Wiltun and after she finishes reading she would nod approvingly and leaves the name 'Elwyn Sabel' below. No coin is forthcoming, perhaps the warrior intends to pay on the day.

"Hmm, you want to enter the tournament Chain? Fine, but the entry fee is coming out of your food allowance."

A cheque is left for the appropriate sum of 25 thousand gold pieces, billing directed to a "Eadmund Athaulf" at Father Wolf's trading company.

Korthan goes around, collecting names for fee-assessment, and adds a tentative time to the previous notice.

//Looks like about 3-4 PM CST atm - this seems to give us the greatest overlap so far in potential Doodlers.

With seething fury, Elwyn crosses out her name on the board in Wiltun. Storming off angrily she can be heard swearing like a sailor all the way to the Wiltun docks. It seems she wont be competing.

Korthan can be seen making final rounds, gathering names, and stops at the Wiltun notice board. With a frown, he scratches Elwyn's name off of the pre registration list.

//This will be starting in about 2.5 hours from this post. I'll be at the Lemu Monastery about 30-45 minutes before that to get set up, collect registration fees (pre paid and otherwise) and otherwise begin setting up. Please try to arrive earlier rather than later - I need time to make the bracket on the spot and get people ready.

Due to the number of people that may or may not arrive, if the tournament is a small turn out, we may do a round robin set of rounds rather than a straight double elimination, to have more fights and involve everyone more frequently. This will also be brought up and discussed IC.

A crazy old hin was seen attacking a woman taking the hand of another man who just had "mistakenly" killed audience, the halfing shouting that if anything, there shall be no self inflicted jusitce upon the proclaimed killer, but the justice of the law. Just after the end of the matches.

Sandrox eyes the Poster hung up by Korthan. He snorts with moackary and shakes his head returning home to rest from his disappointing day and its awkward outcome. //Wanted to say thanks Tormak! The event was fun and it was nice to see it brought manny people to the server! Cheers mate :D
