UP: Lake Superior
For those looking for something to do
this week,the Britannian Games are quickly becoming the only
place to be. We're pleased tobring you the final results of
the first evening of competition after the threeperson foot
race and the glorious opening races of the Winner Circle Racetrack.
Gathering at the Winner's Circle, hopeful contestants ran
several practice lapsto get ready for the competition as they
waited for the conclusion of the footrace. Much talk was in
the air of Thalia, the mysterious item she was carryingon
Sunday and the odd circumstances of her death. The outer rim
of the track wasalso buzzing with news of the orc attacks
and speculation of who would walk awaythe winner in the horse
Lady Temesa of the Lycaeum, attending the races with her cousin
Lady Tiraste andJohn Cainbridge of the Mage Tower, was questioned
as to the possible nature ofthe item but steadfastly refused
to speculate on its origin without "a bitmore research"
and seeing the object. The professor is well known throughthe
realm for her knowledge of history and research skill.
Geirrod Aello of the Vesper Hostel efficiently assisted Calum"Grizzly"
Carter in officiating the horse races. Unfortunately therewas
no sign of young Miss Avalloc (a frequent sight at Mr. Aello's
side) orVincent Sphire, although both were mentioned several
times over the course ofthe night.
heats were held and after a bit of confusion it was decided
to signifythe start of each race by the firing of a fireworks
wand. At the end of thenight Legolas of Yew walked off the
track with first place making anunmistakable artistic-worthy
finish, Mark O' of Tel'Ruid trotted in with second,and Pixel
Grinner of Serpent's Hold rode home this fine summer evening
withthird place. Running away with first place in the relay
race was Moonglow's team(Hannah, Swang, and Cynan). The second
place team (Harka, Sir Lags Alot, andCloud) came all the way
north from Delucia to participate. Nujel'm should bequite
pleased with its third place finish, comprised of Pixel Grinner,
DokenWarHawk, and Tralop. Honorable mention goes to team four
(Trinity, Myshra andAdam Sandlar), but they did not earn any
points towards their city's overallscore.
Not only did each winner walk away tonight with a prize, but
they also earnedpoints towards their town team's overall score!
That brings Monday evening'sevents to a close with the current
