varities of entertainment

Post by Snudge » 2013-05-09

What sort of entertainment does everyone think would be possible in darkon under our rule set, and/or what type of games/contests/entertainments would people like to see. Once we have this list, how would we implement things we don't currently have. Such as races as mentioned below

Currently on the list of things we have
Pit fights
Gambling/Casino
Taverns
Tournaments (Noble and Commoner)
Jugging


Things we should be able to do
Animal contests: bear baiting, etc
Some kind of gladiatorial game, run in a manner that isn't pit fights
Cultural contests: poetry composition, singing, musical oriented stuff, etc
Mythical creature hunts


Things we might be able to do

Races: Chariots, Horses


Edit
To update the events we currently run and what events we could run.

No joke, we had already discussed this and assigned someone to make it. Although we had not considered Andrik or Alfred.

Maybe a scavenger hunt? Timed maybe? You could even put restrictions like: 5 or 10 man teams or something that way they are competing against each other with an equal shot of completing tasks or finding things.

I'm not sure how chariot races would be done...who plays the horses? :lol: But it sounds like fun.

I had thought about reviving the old "Elf Hunts" that we did back in the 90s. Basically sponsored by some noble who rounds up a posse and heads off into the woods for some good natured elf hunting. The object would be to kill the elf, and take his ears. The elves in turn, would try to kill the "Nobles" and in turn claim their badges.

At the end, the team with the most ears/badges won.

Would there be any interest in this? Specifically with woods to fight in.

Jugging. Did it a few weeks ago and it was real fun. Let's do it again.

Yep I think one or two :)

If I recall, Tarim was the "Noble" who called the sporting event the last time I played it. He gathered team A, which consisted of a lot of the older, heavily armored dudes (Valdimar, Mordom, maybe Rome) and the other team had lesser armor, but were far more numerous, agile, and if I recall younger (i think I was maybe 21).

We all went into the woods, they came after us about 10 min later kinda like hunters hunting fox. Sometimes they split up, sometimes they traveled in a big group. We planned ambushes accordingly.

We could call it whatever ya like, and have the players carry trinkets or whatever depending on teams. Maybe just bust out the red and blue armbands to denote which team was which. Again just brainstorming from something we did what, 15 years ago :)

Caber toss?

There was a heavily modified version of soccer we improvised back during a Dragonhood campout at Frazee Farm(?) years and years ago. It basically was set up like the positions in Jugging, but with more players, one of those giant bouncy balls, and haybale choke points. Playing that was some of the most fun I ever had in Darkon.

I remember having a STUPID good time doing that too, but also can't remember the game very well...

There wasn't much in the way of rules. I think we even let people pick up the ball since knocking it out of people's hands was so easy. You were also allowed to hit the ball with your weapon. I think we had two rezz points set up if you got killed on the field.

I will happily contribute toward haybales if Darkon ever wants to play this again.
