(Felucca) The Holly & The Ivy, Thursday, Dec. 2nd, at 8 p.m. CST

Saturday, November 27th, 2010

In medieval times, there were many songs about strife between holly trees and ivy plants. Holly symbolized men and ivy symbolized women. A song from that time that you may still hear at the holidays is “The Holly and The Ivy”, in which the holly carries the day:

The holly and the ivy
When they are both full grown
Of all the trees that are in the wood
The holly bears the crown

A song in which the ivy wins, “Ivy, Chief of Trees”:

The most worthy is she in town
He who says other, says amiss
Worthy is she to bear the crown
Veni coronaberis

Gates will open near the Felucca Brit. and Buc’s Den moongates to a spot in the center of the combat zone. The contest begins immediately. All male characters should try to keep The Holly King alive; all female characters should protect The Ivy Queen. If the king dies first, the female characters all win (no matter which side they actually helped in battle) and vice versa.

Reward: The names of those on the winning team will be inscribed on a festive holiday plaque at Felucca Britain Bank.

Hub Faire & Scavenger Hunt, Saturday, Nov. 13th, at 9 p.m. CST

Sunday, November 7th, 2010

Mesanna has built a beautiful banner hub for Great Lakes! EM Malachi and I would like to invite you all to a faire to celebrate. There will be snacks, socializing, and a scavenger hunt. It will be next Saturday, November 13th, at 9 p.m. CST. Please meet us at the hub.

For those who’d like a preview:
The banner hub is just outside of Luna’s South Gate. Bea at the information desk will soon be able to tell you about each community. Double-click a rose to go to the banner. Beware, red roses lead to Felucca!

There will be something on the banner to lead you back to the hub. Usually it will be the sign, however for FCB Harbor it’s the Seahorse, for GOF Valley it’s the dragon, for DC* Empire it’s the red shield, etc.

(Felucca) Pumpkin Smashing! Friday, Nov. 5th, at 9 p.m. CDT

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

What is best in life? To crush your enemies, see their pumpkins shattered, and hear the lamentation of their turkeys.

Each side will be gated to the pumpkins they have to protect and told where the other side is. The pumpkins will be rigged to turkeys. You can either stay and protect your turkeys and pumpkins, or go kill the other side’s turkeys and watch their pumpkins explode!

Wear a noticeable article of clothing in blue or red. Gates will open near the Brit. and Buc’s Den moongates to a neutral location for sign-in.

Reward: The names of the winning team will be displayed at Felucca Brit. Bank on a suitable plaque.
