Midsommarblot – Tuesday, June 23 at 3pm CT
“It is is Midsummer! Hail! A time of happiness and prosperity before the coming dark. We must hold blot and honor all of the gifts The Holy Powers bestow upon us, ask them to continue to give us such gifts, and give them our own. Gifts must always be given one to the other, as it has always been and as it must always be!”
Helvig Ingvildsdottir and Jay Nord are inviting you to attend their Midsommarblot on June 23rd, at 3pm CST in Littlecreek in the Hidden Vale.
With this blot we want to honor the gods we brought with us from our old lives in Midgard. Attendants of all religious views that are tolerant and open-minded are welcome. There will be opportunity during the blot where you can call upon your own deities.
A blot is a ritual during which we sacrifice to the Old Norse gods, and experience community. There will be a feast, a lot of alcoholic drinks, music and dance following the sacrifice.
(OOC info: This is a RP-heavy event. We expect every participant to make an effort to roleplay and keep OOC talk/talk about real life to whispers or party chat. Everyone that is willing to make this effort is cordially welcome, and if you have not interacted with us before, this is a perfect first time.)

Elaina’s Lost Bow Quest
So… what is “Elaina’s Lost Bow”? In short I’ve started to create a set of bows attuned to each of the magic disciplines (Fire, Water, Air, etc). One day I accidentally sold my Atenism (Sun) bow (it will have Masterworks/Enchants on it) to one of the vendors… So some fortunate Avatar may find it as a loot drop from one of the mobs out there in the land… And I would like it back. And as a reward for finding my lost bow!
Rauchbier Platz – Virtue, Chaos and Brewing Quests
Rauchbier Platz is proud to present three ongoing quests that all are welcome to attempt. These quests will test your virtuous (or not so virtuous) nature, and will have lasting effects when you visit our town. These are “self-service” quests, in that you can do them at your leisure (apart from a portion of one quest described below).
Oh, and there are rewards for completing the quest line and ongoing chances for rewards based on how you complete them!
What are the quests and how do I find them?
Three quests have been constructed in the player owned town of Rauchbier Platz (see the end of this post for directions to town). All three quests begin in the Walhalla Museum of Virtue, Chaos and Brewing; signs and notes in town and just inside the museum will help guide you to the start of the quests. Three books inside the museum will start the quests.
Virtue Quest – A Friend’s Sacrifice
A woman needs your help to try and steer her friend back onto the path of the virtues, will you sacrifice your own things or will you push her toward the path of chaos?
Chaos Quest – An Opportunity for Chaos
A theft of invaluable treasure has occurred in Rauchbier Platz. Recover the treasure and confront Hannah Alpenglow in the most chaotic spot in Rauchbier Platz. Will you return the treasure to its rightful owner or invoke chaos? (Hannah will be role playing here – A PVP duel with Hannah may occur based on the path you choose!).
Brewing Quest – Strange Brew
Dark forces are threatening the Alpenglow’s brewing livelihood – can you follow the clues, solve the mystery and save the day? Will you choose the virtuous path or cover things up to acquire more wealth?
(The Strange Brew quest is likely the longest, but the other two are fairly quick, assuming you can flag me down for the chaos quest.)

Crossroads “Palisades Mall” Monthly Flea Market
The palisades mall is a way for vendors to come together and sell their items to the public without the use of an in game vendor. Each person comes out to the lot and stakes a claim in the mall and decorates it with their wares and signage and enjoy themselves selling trading and bartering as we all hang out and enjoy ourselves. Complete with prizes, activities, and a big raffle for COTO provided by the governor himself. The Tater Tot Empire invites you to come down and get some good deals once a month!
Every two hours there will be a Raffle for ten COTO rolled of everyone who has purchased an item from one of our vendors throughout the event. There will be a commission free Vendor that will be selling individual raffle tickets for the COTO raffle. One ticket per person, your name will only be counted once and you will only be on the list for the active raffle.
Shawn,the governor of Crossroads has given us 60 COTO to give to a policing force that will both prevent PVP fights within the mall as well as keep the road clear of sieges. If you wish to take part in this force be aware that you will need to be active for the entire event to qualify for a cut of the reward money.
