FAQ (will be updated continually to encompass general questions often asked):

Q: What are "GM rewards"?
A: GM rewards will range between one of a kind uniques and trophies. It is dependent almost entirely upon turn out.
The uniques will be different yet similar to the precedent set by other museum openings.
So, a good turn out and lots of fun = awesome rewards for victory and participation!

Q: Does your library feature a black dye tub?
A: Yes, ermahgerd. There is a black dye tub on the property and you are welcome to use it. Cheers!

Q: Can I come?
A: Regardless of any previous disputes or alliances, all are welcome. There's no need to ask specifically for yourself. Everyone is invited.

I am just chiming in since this is a player run event with GM assistance. I am confirming that there will be rewards provided by UOSA staff along with whatever rewards (house deeds mostly) provided by Strange Empire.

GM Rewards will be heavily dependent on the number of players who turn out. I have my guidelines pre-defined for what size groups will warrant which prize bracket.

For these events, at the very least (for example if only 2 participates show up), a 2-silver trophy with the event name, date, and winner's name will be awarded. More players = more silver value on these trophies. If an exceptional number of people show up, these trophies may take on non-regular (silver/gold) trophy hues or designs.

Please be advised:

1. 2v2 tournament has been cancelled due to lack of interest and an over abundance of events. No further events will be cancelled.

2. More mares have been added to Kaboom Mare Raffle. More may be added in the future to compensate for a larger interest.

3. Time scales have been extended for all non pvp events by 30 mins to allow for less rush.

4. There are now 4 events on Sunday as opposed to 5.

5. Tamer duels was moved to Saturday into 2v2's old slot

6. A new FAQ was added

Some of these concepts are new and virtually untested on a large scale. You can bring any tames to tamer duels as long as its 5 tames and under. This includes your mount.

.... last man stand is mostly just thrown in because its untested on this type of roof set up. idc if anyone even wants to come to that tbh since its likely ok.
