Detailed scenario write ups and diagrams will be posted throughout the event site. Please familiarize yourself with the scenarios before or during the event so that we can move quickly from one to another.

Before setting out for Eastwind you must first collect the necessary supplies for the siege. Two teams will face off fighting for three carts full of supplies. Each side will have two rez points opposite of each other, creating two horizontal cart routes, a third cart route will run diagonally across the field. In order to capture a cart, one person from the capturing team must make physical contact with the cart. If this physical contact is removed the cart will stop. Once the cart has made it to one of the two rez points the capturing team gains a point. Once a point has been scored the cart resets to its starting position in the middle of the field. The first team to five points is the winner.

On the road to Eastwind you encounter an enemy faction that blocks your way. Two teams face off, each with four commanders on their side. The goal is to kill the four commanders and send them to Hell, but in order to win, all four of the opposing team’s commanders must be in Hell together. Upon death, you rez in Hell and must fight your way out in order to re-join your faction on the field. This won’t be easy however, since the path out of hell is guarded by the Hounds. Even in death loyalties remain strong and the two factions may choose continue to fight it out, even in Hell.

As your march continues an opportunity presents itself. The Queen of Eastwind and her queen’s guard has taken to the road to visit relatives for the birthday. When her carriage breaks down she finds herself stranded in the middle of a large field. The two teams, each starting at the edge of the field, must fight to control the Queen and her carriage. The goal of the scenario is to hold the Queen behind your defensive line and prevent enemy forces from reaching her. The battle is timed and the team holding the queen at the end is the winner. Rezs for both teams are timed until one side takes possession of the Queen. The side that does not have the Queen enters a fury and acquires tap and go rezzing for as long the Queen is not in their possession.

Once the Queen has been captured the offensive team sacks the city, laying waste to anyone who stands in their path. The offensive team will push defenders back over over a bridge and through the city walls. There, they will fight in the maze of streets, pursuing defenders that attempt to escape. The offensive team will be able to capture checkpoints as they progress through the city, causing their rez point to move up. The defensive team loses the ability to respawn once the final checkpoint has been captured. The game is over when the very last defender is killed. The defensive team’s goal is to hold back the onslaught of attackers for as long as possible. The scenario will be run twice, giving each team the opportunity to both attack and defend. The team that makes the most progress through the checkpoints or effectively annihilates the other team in the shortest amount of time wins.

During the march to Eastwind a scouting party had been captured and are now being held for execution in a nearby outpost. In order to save their brothers, the offensive team must use explosives to destroy key points in the outpost’s defenses and fight their way to the holding facility. Meanwhile, the defensive team must fend off the attackers and do their best to dismantle the explosives. Time is of the essence since the captives are executed one by one as the battle progresses. The offensive team wins if they manage to destroy all of the key objectives and free their brothers. However, if the defensive team holds their outpost long enough to execute all of the captives they receive the victory.

The final attack on the forces of Eastwind. The two teams fight for control of the castle, centered between two bridges. Both of the bridges and the castle count as capture points and at certain time increments fighting will be called to a hold in order to tally these points points. At the end of the scenario time limit the points are totaled to determine the winner and the fate of Eastwind.

Anyone who wishes to participate in the highlander tournament can request a special highlander designation tag at troll. This tournament begins the moment you pick up your tag. Any highlander can challenge another highlander to a single blue duel as long as they are not on “holy ground” (the battlefield during scenarios, camps, feast hall during feast, and restrooms). After the duel the winner has five seconds to “decapitate” their opponent (placing a sword at the neck) and shout, “There can only be one!” If this does not occur the opponent regains his or her life and can continue in the tournament. Once killed, a highlander must pass all of his or her highlander tags to the person who defeated them. After each duel all limbs are regenerated.

The person who has collected and returned the most highlander tags by the end of the tournament (9:00pm Saturday) is the winner. The winner will receive a Foametheus blue as a prize.
