Opening Ceremonies
I had just returned from a bit of merchant shopping near Britain when the local town crier beckoned for all athletes who wished to compete in the games this week to head to the Abbey in Yew. I dropped my things in my bank box and hopped a quick ride with a mage to the city of justice. It was at this location that I was overwhelmed at the number of folks standing outside the Winery. Mutterings of "What is going on?" and "Where do we register?" were quickly quelled as Calum Carter, also called Grizzly, started situating people into a line in front of the Winery. A large line that would have wrapped all the way around the building with people standing on each other's toes it seemed. 

Grizzly quickly tugged a book from his satchel and started at the Abbey-side of the line. "What city do you represent and which facet?" he asked a young Tralap, all dressed in green. "Trinsic and Trammel!", Tralap replied. Grizzly noted it in his book and made his way further down the line. The line was long and the crowds grew restless, fidgeting a bit and such, everyone peered out at Grizzly. Some strange things happened while waiting for the registration to finish, many of which caught even Carter's busy eye. 

But Carter was strictly business as per usual and quickly made his way through the participants. The city registration has been set and the games are all raring to go. With the hundreds that turned out for the registration process these games are sure to reach all time highs in attendance. 

All events are held in Trammel. The calendar of events for this week is as follows:
