The quest for the divine emerald and at least one of the two remaining
sands elimination quests will (as Aldaron has posted) take place this
weekend. However, the amethyst quest and the Ordination itself, will be
postponed until NEXT WEEKEND. This is both to avoid a clash with the
Thanksgiving weekend and to allow all those final contenders to be available
and fully prepared for the big event.
Thus, depending on whether the victor in the emerald quest currently
underway is an existing or new contender, we will know by the end of this
weekend the final competitors for Ordination. And the amethyst quest
will begin at 9pm by the Avalon clock on SATURDAY DECEMBER 1st. Any
current contender should let me know if there's a problem with this date.
Good luck to you all in your contest for the emerald.
