Laconian Spring Olympic Games

Post by Dienekes » 2013-02-24

Hail Darkon,
As we approach the time of rebirth we are pleased to announce games in honor of the Gods. We will have five events to test the strengh of mortals. The Gods favor the bold and the spoils will go to the victor of each event.

The Iron Man= One man can change the flow of any battle, but who can withstand the onslot the longest?
One warrior will stand against as many gladiators as the Gods grant them the strengh to withstand.

The Steel Rose= The fairer side of the humanl species will compeat in a test of Gladitorial prowess. Simply put, Who is the best female fighter in all of Darkon?

The Hoplitdromos+ An armed race to test the might and enduramce of the strongest heavy fighters.

The Pillars of Tharros= Watch as the warriors fight atop pillars of stone in a test of agility and martial prowess. Beasts wait below to feast on the flesh of the weak.

The Battle of Nations= Powers from all over the realm pit their strongest forces in a fight for three points of power. See who really controls the realm and win the favor of the Gods.

Participate in the games!! Gain the favor of the Gods and the gifts that come with victory!! Send your finest to compeate in the Laconian Games.

DEATH OR GLORY Fortune Favors the Bold, and so do the GODS!!

Cool deal. Id recommend starting the Steel Rose event first, while Land Searches are going on since it should be fastest to knock out. Maybe like:

Steel Rose
Armor Race (who wants to race in armor at 4pm?)
Iron Man
Pillars
Country Battle

That way, 2 teams can be going on for those that do not wish to participate in the single person events, or get eliminated. And then have the big country stuff start at 3-330. Try not to have anything after 4pm as yesterday proved we had 10 people left fighting at 345.

Hell only 1/3 of the people that came out last event actually made it to the woods. Whole countries remained up top hanging out and braiding each other's hair I guess.

So yes I am aware of the issue using the field @ Redland is a no go until after 3/15. So we will be doing the three events that require a Ring in the woods with some two teams for those who are not interested in the events. After these wrap up I plan on doing the country battle and will set up three keeps thats will have to be held , no alliances. The armor race will be tenative depending greatly on weather and coditions in the woods. If we can mark of a safe course we will still have it, with the parking lot being a possible alternative. I have already addressed Burtonsville with Jackie and we are not able to do two in a row @ BURTONSVILLE. We are still going to have some fun and some hard fighting and make due with the site resrictions. It is what it is.

The country battle will be just such a scenerio next event. Three structures roped off , coutry has to hold structure for ten min to score a point, most points win.
