Winter Cycle Talon Tournament

Post by DUEL Gabby » Mon Jan 26, 2015 2:31 pm

It's that time again! Winter Cycle Talon Tournament is here! The tournament will be held on the 8th of February. Tournament will begin at 8PM (EST) and seeding will be by signups.

To make it a little extra special, we are going to have a Casino Royale theme with betting and a "celebrity" auction of the new Talon. We will be taking bets from patrons prior to the start of the tournament. The person that successfully bets on the outcome will have the option of either winning a date with the new Talon or splitting the prize money 50/50. If the date is chosen over the pot, the entire amount goes to the Talon winner. This, of course, also depends upon willingness of the Talon to be auctioned. If the Talon chooses not to accept the date, the pot will be split 60/40, with the Talon taking the lower percentage. If, by chance, no one correctly bet upon the winner, the new Talon has the option of choosing a date from the patrons. If the patron accepts the date, the pot will be split 50/50 between them. If the patron does not accept the date, the new Talon will receive the entirety of the pot.

So sign up below, get dressed up (if you want), come out and be objectified all for the sake of FUN! Yeah, sorry, this isn't an awesome charity event. It's just for giggles!

** Edited to add: Should more than one person have successfully bet on the winner, the highest bidder has the option of the date and the pot will be split equally amongst all that bid and the winner of the Talon.

** Baron Charlie Nine has generously offered the Squireship of New Haven as a second place prize. If the second place duelist is already a squire, the offer of squireship will go to third place, and so on.



((All bets will be paid with forum currency to the Arena Bank and Trust. An event thread with more details will be posted soon.))

Former Governor Sheridan Driscol reporting for duty!

That's right. I'm going to do something duel-y. If I can do it, so can you!

Bet on me! Lose everything! Or win a date.

the previous entry had been scribbled out and replaced

Pizza Express has me working a double, I won't be able to make it. Good luck to everyone who gets to win instead. And if Michi enters, shank her prison style.
