Rush Into Madness (February Event)

It's almost THAT time of year! With the 2020 Madness Tournament looming around the corner the final rush into Madness has begun!

For the whole month of February the Arena will rewarding TWIN WINS for duelists who participate in the sport of swords on Thursday nights!

The 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th of February — each a Thursday, each a twin win night, and each a chance for duelists to rank up and experiment within the rings before the Tournament begins!

Duelists who participate in this event will be put into a lotto where special bonus prizes can be won while the special Mad Mask of Many Faces will be rewarded to the biggest win earner at the end of the event! This mad mask can be used by the winner to cast a glamour over their body to transform their visage into anything of their choosing — a perfect disguise kit for someone wanting to cause a little trouble during this mad, mad season!

A special ring has been set up for the Madness Season!


The Mad Maze of Mirrors
This large maze of mirrors shines a multitude of colors to both amaze and confuse participants who step inside! A strange mist dances at the feet of the fighters while barely audible whispers from multiple directions could easily make one question their own sanity! The ring itself is quite the size so multiple duelists can take their matches within..

Try not to bump into each other!







Annex duelists can have their fun too! The lower portion of the maze begins in the Annex to lead willing duelists inside.


(( OOC: Participants will be rewarded a special icon for their profile. The Mad Mask winner will also receive another icon for their profile as well! The Madness Lotto winners will be listed the weekend after the 27th. Madness registration will begin mid February! Have fun with this lead up event! o/ To those who don't duel / don't want to duel -- feel free to use the maze as just a fun house maze if you want! :) ))

Mad Masquerade Mash! ((SIGN UP HERE!))

February 20th Twin Win with Tippletoe: MAD MASQUERADE MASH

Tippletoe Timbers will be hosting an extended shift, and match-making from 8:00pm-10:00 ET. In celebration of the Rush Into Madness, she is running the Masquerade Mash (a fun not-quite-a-tournament with masks) and serving a Mad Hatter Meal!

Masquerade Mash At 8PM ET
For a twist to dueling, you can duel masked matches! Wear your mask, choose your weapon (or for more fun, have one randomly assigned to you!). Duel your unknown opponent and see who has the better mix of disguise and skill! For extra fun and disguise, you can duel with a Masked Dungeon Dueling Monster (should you be afraid that your size or other features will betray your identity!)

The Nitty Gritty
We'll start promptly at 8:10pm, all matches are Duel of Swords. Tippletoe will randomly, crazily decide who is against who (because it's a Mad Masquerade Mash), so you won't know who your opponent is to start. You will privately, in DM, be given a title (Feather Mask, Glitter Mask, etc) that has nothing to do with how your mask actually looks. Matches will be hand called with your fake names eg. Glitter vs. Feather, so no one knows who is who. The goal is to both a) win and b) find out who you are fighting! Everyone will fight at the same time so it will be more difficult to guess who your opponent is. The masked participants will be revealed at the end of their duel. These matches will still count as Twin Win Night regulation matches.

How to Sign Up: For this to work you must sign up in pairs, although you won’t necessarily be dueling your pair. You can sign up here, on this thread, or at the door (8PM ET).

All participants will be given a fun Mad Masquerade Mash participation icon.

Non-Dueling Events!

Mask Decorations
Decorate a Mask: Basic domino masks will be provided, along with all the craft materials you need to decorate it and spice it up! There will be feathers, glitter, ribbon, quick-dry paint, fabrics etc.

Mad Hatter Meal
  • Alice’s Wonder Basket (Beef Sliders, Chicken Tenders, French Fries)
  • Cheshire’s Nachos (served with pico de gallo, chili, guacamole, sour cream and cheese add pulled pork or pulled chicken)
  • Hatter Salad (fresh steam corn, cucumber, tomatoes, and red onions tossed in ranch dressing...add chicken, shrimp, steak, or salmon)
  • Hatter Tacos (3 soft flour tortillas filled with your choice of blackened grouper, chicken, or carne asada served with side of rice and beans)

February 27th: Mad Mirror Maze Race & Hot Cider Bar

Post by Tippletoe » Thu Feb 20, 2020 9:54 pm

February 27th Twin Win with Tippletoe

Tippletoe Timbers will be hosting and match-making from 8:30pm-10:00 ET. In celebration of the Rush Into Madness, she is bringing back the Mad Mirror Maze Race and serving a Hot Cider Bar!

Mad Mirror Maze Race
Solo Participants: You are racing against the clock! Each maze has 4-6 intersections. You start where the green flags are labelled and have to race through before the five-minute timer reaches zero!

Pair Participants: There is no timer, but you are racing against each other! Each maze has 4-6 intersections, with each person having the same number of intersections. You start where the green flags are labelled and have to race each other to the end! This can be done as a duel in any sport, or narratively. If you want the narrative option, just DM me.



Hot Cider Bar
Unfiltered apple cider simmered with cinnamon sticks. There is also a cinnamon free option for those who ask. Shots and toppings available by request!

Shots
  • Whiskey
  • Cognac
  • Spice Rum
  • Mezcal
Toppings
  • fresh whipped cream (in a piping bag!)
  • cinnamon sticks
  • ground cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves
  • miniature donuts (definitely a favourite)
  • apple slices
  • orange peel
  • salted caramel sauce
