Congratulations to Crab, winner of my first Challenge! A salty sea dog, indeed. Also let me give a special mention to Rainbow, Keyser and Florence all of whom did very well indeed, but were pipped to the top prize.
I hosted a ceremony to reveal the winners on Sunday, 1 March in the inn. I haven't seen so much life in the Party room for quite some time, although I must say a few of the mortals did seem to get a little on the tipsy side! There isn't anything wrong with drinking to excess, err success, rather, is there? The ceremony was attended by Crab, Gromit, Innocent, James, Keyser, Moneypenny, Rainbow, Sirkilalot, Sonsie, Tabitha and Zedd. Before naming the winners I called out the answers to the first Challenge. After awarding Keyser and Rainbow valuable sealed warrants for their endeavours, a special rosewood Challenge Winners board was unveiled, bearing the name of Crab.
Soon after, Crab hauled his winner's loot (under wiz escort lest he be waylaid), to the swamp. What treats are in store for the Challenge winners?
Needless to say, many of these beautiful artefacts are imbued with magical properties, not least of all the compass. Indeed, Crab identified its proper use very swiftly and managed to achieve a Task before the reset ended. His total haul? I'm too discrete to say...
Other regular events in the Land:
During a mobile bash, participating mortals try to eliminate all the Land's mobiles. It isn't easy but a successful mobile bash can be worth many thousands of points to the lucky participants.
North American players: 9 PM Eastern every Wednesday
Overseas players: 2100 GMT every Tuesday
During a sorcerers' bash, participating players enter using a 0-point ("scrap") persona, which will then be "sorcerised", or given the points and magic power of a sorcerer for the duration of the reset. Participants then use their skills to fight each other; the one who remains alive in the end wins a fabulous prize, which can be applied to any of the winner's personae, mages excepted.
Sorcerers' bashes are held monthly, at 5 PM Eastern time on the first Sunday every month.
