I'm sure many of you are familiar with the "Bob VS Fred" wars. The basic idea is mass people make "Bob" or "Fred" characters and create teams. Then these squads of newbie characters clash until only Bobs or Freds are standing.

Overview
Every week we will have a war at a set time on Sundays, if enough people are interested. Each week the names of the teams will change and announced fairly close to the game's start time. This is to prevent people from creating "Super Bobs" or "Super Freds" in their free time. One week may be "Bob vs Fred", another week may be "Joseph Vs Mary"... so keep an extra character slot open so you can make a toon each week!

The Location
Jhelom Dueling Pits

The Rules
1) Must be a fresh character with only starting skills & stats
2) You can purchase items with your newbie gold only from NPC vendors
3) You may not use any other items at all
4) You must fight to the death!

The Reward
10-15 minutes of your time wasted on a meaningless, yet fun, battle.

We will try and kick this off Sunday, January 3rd 2010. Give it a full week to "sit in" before going for it

Sounds like a lot of fun! I'm trying to do an event each week on Saturday and Sunday for the Academy competitions as well. I'll keep an eye on times so we don't overlap.

Sounds like a blast so count me in. But how do you plan on keeping the teams even? I mean if 10 people show up as Bob and 4 as Fred then it wouldnt be much fun for the Fred team lol. I guess in the end it really doesnt matter as its all for fun anyways.

This is true. There will need to be some way to manage that

We'll probably do what we did last time we held one of these on UOSA, make a temporary IRC channel and settle teams out in a rapid but organized fashion

Is there a time yet for this?

and

Is it possible to use a particular building for this? In case there is any crashing or illegal characters, they could be banned. I know there are some towers and keeps set up just for combat that are collecting dust.
