  6. Guild Tournament.

    Hail and Salutations guild members of Draia! I am considering hosting a Guild Tournament. The tournament will be simple. Each Guild will pay a 5,000gc entrance fee. Payment will be taken prior to the start of the tournament. The entrance fees will go into a pot and be given to the winners of the tournament (possibly divided unequally to 1st 2nd and 3rd place) depending on how many compete. each guild will nominate 5 guild members to participate prior to starting the event. (we are looking for YOUR guild members and not people you are recruiting just for the competiion if such an event happens, you will be disqualified from the event they participate in) each team will consist of 1 Mage 1 archer 1 warrior 1 summoner 1 spare (the spare can be used to fill in for any of the other guildmembers. but can do so only once) The tournament will consist of 5 events In each event a guild can win 1 or 0 points Scoring Event 1 The guild with the last standing Mage scores 1 point Event 2 The guild with the last standing Summoner scores 1 point Event 3 The guild with the last standing Archer scores 1 point Event 4 The guild with the last standing Warrior scores 1 point Event 5 The guild that deals the most damage to the critter score 1 point Any guild that kills the critter with in a set time scores +1 bonus point Event 1) Mage Duel Each teams mages will battle it out to find the best. Event 2) Summoners Duel Each team summoners will battle it out with summoned creatures to find the best summoner Event 3) Archers Duel Each teams Archer will battle it out till there is a winner. Event 4) Warriors duel Each teams warrior will battle it out till there is a winner. Event 5) Monster bash All 4 team members battle a large powerful creature together. Equipment In each event only basic equipment will be used which will be determinded when the final date of the tournament is set, along with the rules. Rules for each event will be posted once we see how many if any guilds are willing to enter. If lots of guilds choose to participate then it will take place over several days, and be done in a series of heats. Before setting aside a lot of time to set it up id like to know a few things... Is anyone interested in this Event? Would you put your guild up for it. Would you pay the 5kgc entrance fee? let me know what you think of this idea?
  7. it is Ents fault

    Hehehe maiden have always been good. The first ever tape i bought was maidens peace of mind, and it got played over and over much to the annoyance of friends/family and neighbours Personal favorites are: (in no particular order) Rime of the ancient mariner (just epic) Flight of icarus The trooper Can i play with maddness Seventh son of a seventh son Hallowed be thy name Bring your daughter to the slaughter has a special place with me (becasue i heard it once on radio one (when it had topped the charts, i believe it only got played the once. On a car journey to see family with my parents and my dad flipped hearing it lol) I really must get all of the cd's again.
  8. Guild Tournament.

    nope one different person per event
  9. Guild Tournament.

    Why do you need more than one warrior? the idea is you choose a single champion for your guild to fight, same as all others. We are looking at very simple equipment for this, there will be no need for magic arrows/bolts bronze swords etc...we are looking at skill not uber gear...the only exception will be the summoners as far as i can see. who will prbably spend some extra gc...but that happens all the time Nothing to do with magic level. you specify who you want your mage to be. wether its a character with 6 magic levels or a full blown combat monster or a full 'mage' with high magic and massive rat. It is the person you specify as your guilds magic wielding champion. edit: Edited a serious typo
  10. Drums of war

    We have recieved several reports of strange dreams befalling many seers and soothsayers over the last few nights. But today 12 have reported the same thing and each have recalled it perfectly the same. Each has reported today that upon awakening they can hear a dull distant thudding like a beating drum across the winds not enough to work out a location of the source but it is there. *We are expecting some sort of invasion with in the next 12 hours As a result we are preparing to face it at our best. Those of you who are highly skilled with weapons will lead the warriors of Draia into glorious battle when or if it comes. Those that are not as skilled will be directed as skirmishers to take out foes that are apt for you. Those who are just learning the art of battle will be sent to deal with any appropriate threat and help defend the home steads. (**) Archers and mages fill in the lines where you can and be prepared to fight or flee as the need may arrise. Those of you who are not skilled in battle please take shelter we are attempting to errect magical wards around Isla prima, valley of the dwarves and Nordcarn with the aid of Adrian & Noria and so you should be safe there. if you are stranded elsewhere we suggest you either take up arms or seek refuge in a building (***). We will keep you updated on any new infomation we recieve here. If and when the attack starts we will keep you up todate on the specific emergency Invasion broadcast channels. Good luck everyone And we pray to the gods that we are preparing for nothing more than a few angry goblins! Notes: * Invasion will take place at around 8pm GMT about 6 hours from this first post, ** There will be level restricted maps so please only go to those suitible for your levels, the idea is for EVERYONE to be able to enjoy the invasion *** I would advise going afk in Nordcarn/Valley of the dwarves/isla prima. we dont know what other maps will be invaded but they WILL be safe or afk in buildings like houses. taverns, inside storages. Yes There will be an invasion, yes it is a global invasion, please be careful as you could die. Approximate time of invasion 8pm GMT Today (thats in about 6 hours time from this post)
  11. Drums of war

    10,000 monsters descended upon the land 10 score warriors stood against hordes many did fall, as blood spilt into the sand in the end all were slain upon the heros swords Congratulations one and all, you Repelled the hordes magnificently. Once again the warriors of Draia prove they are more than a match for any invader. Still the mystery remains who sent this army of monsters upon us, where did they come from and will they try again?
  12. Drums of war

    The seers are being deafened by the beating drums... we can not use them to forsee where the Invaders will strike. But it seems Unolas has given us his blessing for this day. Which bodes well for our brave sorcerers and battle mages. Reports from the dutiful priests Reports from the generals Communication sent to artillery commanders Stand strong, heads held high brave ones, together we will prevail!
  13. PK Contest

    PK CONTEST This is a king of the hill style contest. I will be in a pk map at 5:30 game time (in about 1 hours time from this post give or take) the exact location will be given in game 5 at the start of the contest. You have until the new day to be the last man standing. The idea is simple. You all come along and battle it out on the turn of the new day the last man standing next to me (or the last guild standing around me) wins 50k gc. Nice and simple no... ohhh of course you should be killing each other to make sure you are the last people standing around me (i WILL NOT be fighting) I want a nice bloody fight that means...summons, archery, magic, swords everything and anything LEGAL you can do to slay your opponets and win the prize! If there is no battles then the prize is forfit and wont be given out. DISCLAIMER: It is PK, you probably will die, you probably will lose items through drops or breaks, you will likely get killed. Thats life. at least you can say you had fun...i hope This is a PK contest, as a result i dont expect to hear anyone complaining OMFG he used a branch, i lost because i had to blink, or any other excuses.
  14. PK Contest

    btw i will probably do a few more of these, and pick a different pk location each time. To keep it nice and varied

  23. Woot its a birthday!

    The Golem's hunt While the mages in Tarsengaard were busy with their various ceremonies and parties, our old friend the Golem has escaped their surveillance once more! The more the mages experiment with him, the smarter he gets. This time, he is trying to hide from his masters, and we know that he is capable of travelling all over Draia seeking for hideouts... will you be the one capable of finding (and killing) him? Luckily enough, he is still telepathically connected to Grandmaster Jerun, and the winds are whispering of his whereabouts... but only in mysterious ways. Will the hints be enough? Your task: find the Golem and kill him; you will receive Grandmaster Jerun's hints. Contest will start at 1:30 on the 10th day in the month of Zartia, the year 0022, Age of the Eternals, (that is, around 2:45pm CET, today) and last till the end of the day. At that point, whoever has scored the most kills will win the prizes. Prize set: 1 Rapier, 1 Steel Helm, 1 Steel Greaves, 1 Steel Chain Mail, 1 Body Piercing Cloak. The Golem is (still) very weak and easy to kill for everybody - but the hideouts can be in dangerous places, so be warned. Contest is open to all players, regardless of levels.
