Hear ye! Hear ye! There will be - this next weekend on Saturday February
14th at 10-11pm by the AVALON CLOCK - a great quest on the newly
discovered battle-isle. The prize for the winner will be a choice
of artifacts, one of either: 'the staff of the wanderer', 'the stave
of disaster', or 'the spectacles of battlesight'. See HELP RULES for
details of these artifacts and info about the quest itself.
The runner-up will receive a choice of one of the two remaining
artifacts, and the third placed competitor will receive the third.
The quest itself will be simple in premise: each competitor will
have five hundred highly skilled soldiers, spread between one or
two legions (so either two brigades, or one division). They will
be able to select from any of the six potential 'equipment' start
inventories (also listed in HELP RULES). All competitors will then
be placed on the battleisle by their brigades/division; the trumpets
will blow to herald BEGIN, and - quite simply - the last commander with
soldiers standing will be the winner. The battle-isle has its own
sky, its own pool of life and a full range of location types and
myriad possible strategies. There will be few rules: alliances will
be allowed, betrayals likewise. There will be no player vs player
combat. This is a quest to find the first Avalonian with rights to lay
claim to being the greatest general in the land.
Good luck to you all, and any questions, consult HELP RULES or
ask a deity. Make use of the battle-isle meantime to practice as much
as you like.
