My name is Krystalynn. I am writing you today to tell you about the wonderful
time had last night at the Pacific Games! The Games began at the Minoc Town
Hall, where the athletes met up with Verrock Judge. There were about eight to
ten athletes that arrived for this grand event.
After the judge explained the rules, we all ran off in a southerly direction. We
came to a ‘watcher’ that explained the rules of the first event to us upon
our arrival. The idea was to weave around the chests that were placed on the
ground. I tell you, you could get very dizzy if you ran too fast around them.
There were also quite a few Orcs and Ettins that decided to join the event as
well. Unfortunately, I was put to rest by the monsters and had to be brought
back to the living by a wandering healer. I decided, at that point, just to
watch the events unfold as the other participants went through them.
After weaving through the chests, the second event was quite simple. The watcher
gave everyone some kindling and had them light a fire. When the fire was lit,
they received a token as proof of completing this event. It was wonderful seeing
all the fires lit along the road.
The third event was a test of courage, as the contestants had to run around the
Brigand Camp to receive another token. There are about five tents in the camp
and today, for some reason, the camp had more Brigands than it normally does. At
this point there were fewer and fewer participants. Whether they gave up or got
lost was unclear at the time. The last event of the Games was to cut fish up
into fish steaks, with which no one had any problems.
At the end of the Games, there was an Awards Ceremony. The following people
should be congratulated for winning if you see them wandering about our fair
Grand Prize 5000 GP - Lady Kaya,
Second place 3000 GP SAK,
Third Place 1000 GP LilFiera.
Congratulations to all the winners! The ones that did not win were presented
with a fireworks wand for their participation! Of this great event I have but
one regret and that was not finishing the Games myself. I will however begin my
training so that when these Games are held again I will be ready!
