Please have someone change the event on the website to Bellum Aeteruns- Elder's Choice instead of the current Bizarro battle planned :)

Maybe Rome will come out....

I think you'd be pretty sad about what currently constitutes Rome. You know like 2 or 3 of them...

Id just be pleased with the chance of dick stabbing Harn...

Im glad this will be at Pautx. Such a great site, with room for hilly battles or the giant field battles. Im counting on the non Darkonian element to prevent the darkon toilet bowl swirl. If you noticed Sunday due to the woods, this was FAR less prevalent than on your typical battle day.

We should make sure TONS of Nobles will be present for "newbie" speech to go over the basic rules for all newcomers that day. Lots of marshalls to. Not this half ass * Ive been seeing of 3 guys checking weapons and a mile long line.

I think we should have a Machate Dunk Tank too...

Did you forget that Harn helped found Legio Exilium, as in he left Rome... Then he moved away.

Founding Ex still doesnt make up for the 5+ years of dickery I endured from his ass.

Hehe we could have a contest, and the most vote getter could be dunked at 10gp a throw!

Too bad it's November. Might be a little cold for that, depending on how the weather goes in the fall. So many nobles could be dunked for money!

november is a pretty open part of the year. i don't even think neverwinter (FL amt) has anything going on then. even though the weather is basically perfect there at that time.

We have open merchant and entertainment slots available for BA. Interested merchants or entertainers can contact me ( amymcneal at gmail dot com) or Yaron (vp@darkon.org) to reserve spaces.

Merchants: We're looking for sellers of products that nerds like us will like. Garb, accessories, armor, jewelry, mugs, collectibles ( family friendly please) - we're interested. There is a $5 merchant fee for this event. Merchants will need to provide their own set-ups ( tables/chairs) and will be able to arrive at 10 a.m. to begin their set-up. Merchants must be approved by the BA Committee prior to BA.

Entertainers: Anyone who wants to perform - music, dance, theater, comedy, performance art, sideshow - we're interested. We have 0 budget to pay in $, but you will be paid in gold, and you can sell your merch (CD/Shirts,etc.). Performers must be approved by the BA Committee prior to BA.

Nice job on the site!

One thing I did notice (as a potential vendor): In the "Food, Merchants, and Entertainment" section, the hyperlink under Yaron's name is a URL (http://www.darkon.org/Bellum_Aeternus/vp@darkon.org) and not a mailto (mailto:vp@darkon.org).

Bellum Aeturnus is coming up soon and is looking to be an awesome success and excellent fighting. I need to start getting an idea on how many people I can count on to help elder at some point during the day for our large fighting events, two teams should run themselves with minimal support. I need at 6 elders for each battle for 4 main battles so in total, I am looking for at least 24 different people to help elder major battles during the day ( The more the better ) this will allow everyone to enjoy fighting, shopping and all around fun of the event with only a short elder shift. This is less than an hour per person. Please get in touch with myself or Dame Keira at the next event or up coming events. If you would like to elder a specific fight let me know, or if you would like to elder longer that's fine too! Help make this an awesome event!
