"License to Curse" - A Final Examination in the Dark Arts
Event Date: Saturday, January 16th at 4pm EST
Estimated time: 40-60 minutes
$$$ Moonglow Rune Tower

Image

Objective: Students will compete against one another in single combat. This is to assess the students magical skill and knowledge, not their ability to wield a sword.

Students, it is a tradition in the academy to have magic duels as a final event in the academy. I know it sounds immoral to allow the use of Dark Magic. The Academy feels this is the only way for students to learn to defend themselves in a world eclipsed by darkness. Do not think this is a common scrap. One's wit and strategy is equally important to one's magical ability. I expect all students to conduct themselves well and serve their city proudly.

~ Headmaster Marfu


The Dark Arts: Supernatural means of inflicting pain and misfortune on others. A few items related to dark magic include shrunken skulls, hangman's rope, and poisonous candles. Some distinguish the dark arts as "black magic", and the beneficial charms and cures with magic as "white magic." Some suggest that the the battle between white and dark magic is an expression of man's nature to choose to do good, but also harm.

Assignment (2 points)

1. Arrive at the scheduled location with a robe colored to represent your city's house in the academy and form a party with your classmates.
2. Do not bother with bringing regs. They will be provided.
3. Event Details (I am giving these out ahead of time so houses can think about strategy and or practice)


Wizard Dueling Rules

  • 5x mage skills allowed only (Magery, Eval, Med, Wrest, Resist)
  • Spell limits: No Greater Heal, No Paralyze, No Earthquake.
  • Reagent limits: 30 of each
  • House's will choose who among them will battle in each round.
  • The wizard left standing at the end of a duel wins.
  • A student may win only once. A student may duel multiple times if their house chooses and they have not won yet.
  • There will be 9 wins before the event concludes, leaving one city as the champion of the event.
  • Bonus Points: Each person that wins will have the opportunity to draw a book containing bonus points. These books range in point value. The points will be added directly to the final score for each team. These books, however, will not be drawn until the Awards Ceremony on Sunday.

** As with all events, please do not come with anything you do not mind losing.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Event Summary:


Students had many strategies to think about here. Limited reagents, unusual combos, who to match with the other team, spell interrupts, etc... The fights went as follows:

Blackfoot vs. emac

I would like to apologize in advance to my Moonglow team mates. Im only gonna get ya the 1 fer showin' up. Im fairly certain anyone I might have to line up against, will likely have a template far better suited to PvP than the 3x GM fisherman (96 magery/70's wrestle/60's resist) which is my only mage.

I always thought the PvP disclaimer was more about a group format, potential event-getting-jumped scenario, never expected a mage duel. Hell, even back on Sonoma with my built pvp mages I was never better than halfassed at that....lol

But I'll do my best to be the hardest to kill fisherman they ever squared off against!

You will do fine. You are in the same place as many in the academy. You do have some time to work on skills if they fit into your template.

Alright, I finished off magery, should have wrestle done before then, and will get resist as high as I can before the event, however what I could probably use is some practice, I havent been in a mage duel in years, even then it was UO:R and beyond so I could use some practical T2A experience. Would any of my Moonglow teammates be available to give me a practice session for a little while before the event and school this noob? I will be happy to cover your regs and bring one of my other characters for me to flag on so there would be no chance of any accidental counts.

This is a good idea and I think that the students from magincia would probablly benefit from some pvp lessons as well. I know I would lol. Anyone interested let me know.

I have a place that should be ready but I cannot contact the owner at the moment. I'll update here and in IRC once it is confirmed.
