    By Royal Warrant, we present to you the Welcome Quest!

    You are invited to join the Welcome Quest in Release 31.

    It will be held on Saturday, July 2, 2016 at 12pm (noon) - 1pm central time/new britannian time. It is added on the Avatar's Circle community calendar for easy time zone conversion at http://avatarscircle.com/community-events/ Plus it is in your in-game Events book.

    Greagoir will be active 30 minutes before the event and during the event.

    We are visiting the Celtic Holdfast - Dara Brae. A small piece of bone was discovered while creating our Skara Brae replica house. We have dismantled that house and the pavilion and have begun our "dig site". You are invited to help us finish the dig and discover what is there.

    This event is part of the "Lord British Birthday weekend" celebration of events this weekend! Come and enjoy some virtual cake! We will spend a few minutes honoring our liege, Lord British, before the dig starts.

    You can teleport to Greagoir. If adventure is more your style, travel to Elysium island (ferries are available fro Quel and Longfall), then in the crescent opening on the south side of the island is Dara Brae.

    Are you with us?


    Purpose:

    The Welcome Quest is a quest for all people to see many towns and establishments. It is created as a way for people to visit many player-ran locations. It involves each town and establishment to give the quest person some information and then instructions to go to the next location (a town or establishment) to do something. The path may be sequential from place to place or in parallel to multiple places at the same time. The goal is for towns and establishments to showcase their places, educate the people, and work with other player-ran towns/establishments.

    We are proud to be the first player-ran quest in SotA! We do it for all of you. :)

    What a great day! Everyone had fun doing the Welcome Quest kicking off the third straight year.

    First we gathered by the Dragon statue and with a nod to the first Welcome Quest the questors had to travel from Dara Brae to Xenos in search of @Sansa at the GOT vendors. (GOT Vendors is a nod to Game of Thrones that I watch with a Imp Ale vendor and a Vaylarian Steel vendor).

    All questors received a broken bench to take to Sansa. Once the questor arrived, searched, and found her she "repaired" their broken bench into a Welcome Bench. The Welcome Bench is representing Dara Brae for their talents in crafting and rich knowledge. This is one of the four special Welcome Quest items.

    *I did not get a picture of Xenos portion. Does anyone have one? *

    When the questors arrived back to Dara Brae with their Welcome Bench the archaeology event was on.

    Tirelessly we dug holes, examined, and blew dust off of anything we found. Some found worms, others bone fragments. It was up to the questors in what they found. :)

    We found another fragment and are now clearing the dirt by using the Gust magic spell.

    When the dirt was all off of the rest of the bones. DRAGON BONES! Cool!

    Everyone went to the tent "inn" area to receive their bluish Welcome Torch, share some birthday cake in honor of Lord British, and see a few fireworks!

    Thank you everyone for a great day!
