In many worlds, the Eye of Dahsk went missing 144 Britannian years ago. In some realities it was recovered. In others it was not. On the shard of the greatest lake, it remained hidden. The Jaskinor family passed the gem down from father to daughter, mother to son, for seven generations. Always, it brought its curse. Disaster in deep red. Fire, debt, murder, and worse.
“The Eye of Dahsk will return to you this year, your majesty” the astrologer said, “during the Festival of Masks.”
“Then I shall order the Festival to be held on the traditional date.”
“No, your majesty. One who holds the Eye on that day will die. Might I suggest the 19th?”
“So if I host the festival on the 19th I won’t die that day?”
“I didn’t say that.”
The Sultan of Nujel’m invites all to his island for the Festival of Masks on Saturday, June 19th at 8:30 p.m. CDT. This will be a lighthearted street party with food, drinks, and shameless thievery. Please wear a mask and pretend not to recognize anyone else who is wearing a mask.
“The Game” will be played. The goal is to figure out who has the Eye of Dahsk, steal it, and return it to a grateful sultan.
To steal the Eye of Dahsk, your character must be a member of the Thieves’ Guild. To join you need 60+ stealing. Also, the character must be at least 48 hours (in-game time) old. Find a thief guildmaster and say his/her name and ‘join’ (e.g. “Mary join”). Cove and Moonglow, on either facet, are good places to look for a thief guildmaster, because they’re relatively small.
You can recall or sail to Nujel’m. Also, gates will be available from a few steps southwest of the Felucca Brit. and Minoc moongates. These moongates will go directly into Nujel’m, a guard zone.
Reward – The name of the first to return the Eye of Dahsk to the sultan will be displayed on a suitable plaque at the Award Hall.
