THE STATE OF THE CITY


All of Sunberth has been overtaken with a sudden need for competition. Cooks want to show off who is the best, children want to see who's the fastest, and even mothers want to see who can change a babies diaper the quickest. The general mood in the city is one much lighter than usual. It even shows in the beautiful weather as the gently rolling hillsides are dotted with flowers and lush greenery.

The gangs themselves realize this and do their best to not sour the populaces good time by doing their best to keep any supremely violent gang fights only between other rival factions.

The Daggerhand have proven to be just as bold and bloodthirsty as ever from the events of last season. Its pushed them to the top of the hill with the Sun's Birth below it. The Night Eyes, like always, are an unknown factor. The Sun's begin to push a recruitment drive to regain the numbers they lost. The Daggerhands reclaim the barren lands of their lost territory of the Rotten Ruins, it was easy to take over the ghost town to the surprise of no one.

Events of Note:


  • 1st - Celebration of Giants:
    A tradition is upheld as the city gathers wood to be burned for the effigy throughout the day aided by Cutters and Carvers. Then at sundown, the massive effigy in memoriam to Olsten is burned next to the slag heap. The Bolt hole sets up around it, turning the whole event into a wild party.

  • 2nd - A Herald of Giants:
    The Slag heap draws more spectators than Johnny’s when the Pit Bull of the Blood Pits stands before the ashes of the effigy and organizes a tournament. Word spreads fast as many fighters put their names into the running for The Tournament of Giants.

  • 3rd - Competitions and Tournaments Abound:
    The Pig's Foot Tavern holds a slop eating competition. Don’t ask what part of an animal is in the food, just be the last one at the table.

  • 4th - Tall Johnny has everyone kicked out of his establishment:
    Word on the street says Ovek appeared to flip a coin with Izurdin and Vayt present… Or maybe Johnny just had a bad case of the shytes.

  • 5th to the 8th - Proving Everything:
    The Proving Grounds lowers its fee for Basic, Group Sessions down to one gold miza for the next four days. Its clear to some that they are using the interest around the upcoming Tournament of Giants as an opportunity to both recruit and prove their good will to the community by teaching others to fight.

  • 10th - Jolly Good Stables holds races!
    The races go up and down the road leading from the Riverside towards the rives edge of Slaver's Row and back. Both mounted and foot races take place. Goldfinger himself is even seen betting at the races in a rare moment of his free time.

  • 12th - The Tournament of Giants:
    Fight day. From sun up to sun down, warriors gather at first light to do battle. The final fight of the tournament takes place under the moonlight by the flames of the slagheap. Be prepared to fight multiple times in the same day. Tall Johnny can be found scouting out fighters.

  • 15th - The Drunken Fish holds multiple swimming competition from one side of the river to the other. Rowboats with sailors are kept at various check marks to aid anyone who can’t make it, and to guide those who did back to The Fish.

  • 20th - Not all games are nice:
    The Quay releases five slaves with brands littering their faces into the Wildlands. Each with varying bounties on their heads. Happy hunting.

  • 30th - Hunting for Bakers:
    Its said that a day and a halfs journey down past South of the tent city, towards the eastern beaches that creatures known as Alohota have been seen on the shores. The Bakers Butchery has asked for any brave hunters to bring them one.

  • 59th - Everyone wakes up to find Sunberthan Rats are much more muscular and aggressive than usual. Able to chew through harder wood. The most sturdy of businesses are no longer safe from infestation. Its a real problem as no shoes are safe from being eaten.



    Notes about the competitions:
    How to begin: You the players post the thread with your character at the event and link it here. If you are attempting any of the competitions or hunts post links to your threads here to this calendar thread.

    I'll grace them with small blurbs or NPC prompts as needed. They may become fully modded threads, or a thread where I tell you to roll, and then tell you what any outcome might be to solo out.

    There is no set organization for the tournaments as they are clearly interest based events.

    Posting the links here is where I will oversee all event related threads.
