Challenge for Dockside (A Dirty Charity Endeavor)

Post by Claire Farron » Tue Jun 05, 2018 1:58 am

TK,

Time to raise some dough, right? I formally challenge for the Barony of Dockside.

For everyone else, we'll be taking donation "bets" on this with all proceeds going toward local charities. All donations will be matched by Team Dirty, so come break our bank!

More deets coming once this is all official.

Lucky you brought over some nice steaks before springing this idea on me.. BUUUT, it is for charity and all. I guess I can't say no to that.

I accept.

Dirty Dockside Showdown

Baron Terry King vs. Warlord Claire Gallows

Friday, June 15th, 2018
Dockside
9 PM ET


Image

At risk of inconveniencing the numerous freighters and ships that move in and out of the harbor on a daily basis, a large section has been cordoned off with ropes and buoys. In the midst of it all sits a wee tugboat tethered to a 10m flat barge. This barge will play host to the Dirty Dockside Showdown, with combatants fighting upon the tipping, nausea-inducing, and slightly slippery surface.

Image

On the docks, temporary bleachers have been constructed, but starting one hour before the match, small boats, kayaks, and canoes will be permitted to take a place on the water for the sake of spectating. Rentals will be available from local merchants for those who want a spot on the water but might not have the proper craft to do so. Projection screens and scrying portals will be set up at varying intervals along with speakers broadcasting the play by play of the fight. Bookies taking bets and volunteers collecting donations will also be wandering the crowd for any on the spot money exchanges that may need to occur. Remember, all donations will be matched by Team Dirty!

Image

Along the periphery of the main boardwalk, a fleet of food trucks from across the city have amassed to hawk their wares to the unfed masses. Local cuisine along with favorites from dozens of far off realms from Earth all the way to the ends of the known Nexus. Pick up some Abydonian lizard from Fat Jack’s Exotics. Sure, it tastes just like chicken, but don’t a lot of those things? Servers tote samplings of two signature cocktails for spectators to enjoy while watching.

Image

The King of Hearts: Sauvignon Blanc, Pomegranate Juice, Pear Nectar, Apricot Nectar, Green-Tea Vodka with a pear garnish. Non-alcoholic variant available, made of white grape juice, pomegranate, pear, apricot, and green-tea.

Image

Fire in the Gallows: â…“ Cinnamon Schnapps, â…“ Hangman Distillery Fireshot Whiskey, â…“ Hangman Distillery Slugger’s Select Honey Whiskey.

Image

When all is said and done, spectators (and really, most of the western side of town), are treated to spectacular fireworks show, shot off from a distant barge similar to the same one used for the challenge. Win or lose, everyone comes out on top tonight![/center]

Considering loyalty did me no good last time around, Dockside will be aligning Renegade to the Overlord. I'll be keeping Ro on as Squire though, so no change there.

Many thanks to those who came out or donated. After Team Dirty matches everything, over thirty thousand silver will be distributed between the Old Market Women's Shelter and the FQ Memorial Youth Centre. Late donations will be matched through the end of the month if submitted through the Dirty home office in New Haven.
