Bulletin Boards: Warriors Warrior Games are BACK! Note #6 by Rauna at Sat Feb 25 04:29:31 2023 on board warriorsguild UGH! The Warrior Games are back, and better than ever! Well, as better as they were last time, at least. We are aiming for the weekend of 25th-26th March, and because we are warriors, our games will be compressed across a couple of days and won't have any fancy overall points system. Proeliator and I are pleased to bring back our classic line-up of games... something for everyone, and in particular lots of opportunities for young warriors to win big. The events planned are: 1. Track in Field Use your tracking skills to locate where our chosen target has wandered off to. We'll begin in a pub within AM, first to find the chosen target wins! 2. Stylish Warrior Head on down to Djelibeybi and flaunt your warrior stuff - armour, outfits, paint and dramatic warcrying. Prizes for Best Dressed, Best Warcry and Best Warpaint! 3. Trophy Hunt You'll be taken to random locations and asked to gather the heads of NPCs for a given theme. Either beheading or using a sharp implement to hack those corpses. 4. Horse Race Bring your trusted steed/hobby horse/newbie and prepare for a checkpoint race. Expect fighting and drinking along the way! 5. Bar Brawl How can there be a Warriors Games without everyone meeting in a pub and beating the living daylights out of each other? Last Warrior standing wins! 6. Rugby Three matches where you fight for possession of the rugby ball and hopefully score a few tries! Warrior vs Warrior, Warrior vs Everyone else and hopefully the return of the Newspaper match open to everyone. Keep an eye on the boards and event list for more information, times and dates to be confirmed! And for the wealthy amongst the playerbase... either warriors or those who love a warrior, please donate to our prize fund! This is a great opportunity to shower money and items on our lovely young warriors, so I will also be collecting funds that are specifically tagged for 'young winners' if you wish. May the best warrior (other than me and Proeliator) win! Rauna Masala

Tank - with the epic warcry of "My hovercraft is full of eels!"

Felurian managed to get so drunk she fell into Lancre Gorge. Narrowly avoiding death she somehow still made it across the finish line!

Bulletin Boards: Warriorsguild Warrior Games 2023 - Thanks everyone! Note #23 by Proeliator at Tue Mar 28 18:17:41 2023 on board warriorsguild Thanks all who participated in the games this year, it was a lot of work but it was worth it in the end! Thanks also to everyone who made a donation towards the games, we made a whopping 1,646 royals plus a stash of items - the donations were so good we managed to rustle up another event which went down really well! So thanks to (in no particular order): Toffee, Tempo, Stamen, Jeanie, the AM Daily, the AM Council, Delusion, Mirodar, the Saddle Sore club, Kalu, Tetraam, Decay, the Green Slab, Reva, Ynnb, the DJB Council, Naleon, the Wyvern's Respite, Westley, Ordeith and Wrathe. Ug! Proeliator & Rauna
Bulletin Boards: Warriorsguild Re:#1 Warrior Games 2023 - Thanks everyone!

You know who you are, thank you so very much. Also thank you to those who assisted at the events, Sevyn and Persephone for res and restores for the Bar Brawl, Ynnb for portals including for Trophy Hunt, and the marshals Proeliator rustled up for the horse racing. During the games, Proeliator and I usually say “never again!” - while time can soften memories, we would also be delighted to hand over the baton to aspiring organisers. We have the game formats, a spreadsheet ready to use, and lots of tips. Or reinvent the games entirely and do your own awesome thing. Ugh! Rauna - never again!
