personal - GemStone IV Family Issues

Over the years I have been to so many weddings, festivals and other gatherings that have been no more than a footnote in my diaries.

I have decided to record these events from this time forward so that there is a formal record for posterity. When memory fails, the written word will prevail! On occasion, I will record my own feelings ( i.e. those of Bremerial's alter ego) along with Bremerial's own thoughts.

NB: OOC - Any logs included will be published using notepad which should make the information accessible to most.

I then spent the considerable hours at the caber toss practicing for the actual event. I avoided the actual Shield Slalom contest but did read some information relating to the contest published publically

Information about the Shield Slalom Contest

Posted by Sherlise

Very soon, the hillside will be open to visitors and competitors alike!

Competition tonight will include the Shield Slalom, and you might want to brush up and take a read of the signs posted near the starting line!

Practice, also, might be in order! This is a daring and dangerous (maybe deadly!) challenge, and if you don't stay agile and alert you could perish on the course!

Try out your LEAN LEFT, or a JUMP (and other variations!). You probably don't want to just hop on and hold on, and hope for the best, believe me!

Bear in mind that during the official competition, ONLY dwarves and giants can place in the top three. Other races are welcome to ride, but the top three prize winners are restricted to those two races.

Participants must SURVIVE the course to win!

Drotta will be along around 10:30 PM EST to run the official race! Spells will be stripped and competitors are to be without any items which might boost any skills! Each participant will be checked for boosting items and asked to remove and store them before beginning. Failure to do so will disqualify the participant, so please, check before you get checked to help speed everything along!

Good luck!

Although I did not attend the contest I did learn who won the event.


[Jirkirl's Hilltop, Plains]
Damaged hammers with split handles and discarded shafts are carelessly tossed into a small clearing. Strung up between two pine trees, a rope hammock provides a place to relax. Numerous hammers are evident not too far away in the ruins of a pumpkin patch. Frost covers the smashed pulp. Written in block letters, a large warning sign is posted on nearby poles. You also see the gate back to the fairgrounds.
Also here: Felsen, Zandie, Lord Chamorr, Liabo Chair Aoife

You ask, "Having fun?"

You grin.

Zandie nods to you.

Zandie grins.

You turn to Zandie and cheer!

You say, "Oh no - i can't take credit."

You say, "I was just noisy."

Aoife asks, "Do you know where the Horn and Bell was rebuilt?"

Speaking to you, Aoife says, "Loud certainly counts for something."

Aoife grins at you.

You say, "Not seen it yet, but then have hardly had a chance to explore."

Speaking to you, Aoife asks, "Do you know Chamorr?"

You say, "Will yell when i find it."

Speaking heartily to you, Chamorr says, "Hiya."

You bash forearms with Chamorr in greeting.

Speaking to you, Aoife exclaims, "Thanks!"

You say, "Definitely gonna see everything I can."

Chamorr bashes forearms with you in greeting.

You say, "Ok good luck with the raffle."

You agree with Aoife.

You grin.

Chamorr nods.

You say, "Stay safe."

Aoife exclaims, "You, too!"

Aoife waves.

You say, "And may all your scores..."

Chamorr heartily says, "Nice meetin ya."

Speaking to Chamorr, you say, "And you too."

You turn towards Chamorr and render a sharp hand salute.

You wave to Aoife.

I wander to the Gatering

[Jirkirl's Hilltop, Gathering]

Also here: High Lady Maurra, Tabrina

Tabrina nods to you in greeting.

You clear your throat.

Tabrina grins slowly.

You say, "I mean competitors."

You cackle!

Tabrina exclaims, "Take the tall one first!"

Maurra wiggles her ears.

Maurra stares at Tabrina.

You chuckle at Tabrina.

Tabrina ducks her head.

Tabrina giggles.

Maurra folds her arms over her chest.

You say, "I'll grab the legs."

Tabrina says, "That shield solem is addictive."

You say, "You go for the throat ."

Tabrina rubs her chin thoughtfully.

(Tabrina slips a foot out in an attempt to trip Maurra as she moves.)

Maurra gives Tabrina a friendly slap on the back.

Tabrina suddenly stumbles for no apparent reason.

Tabrina says, "Figured there'd be ah drinkin' game."

You say, "There will be."

Tabrina says, "Not soon enough."

Tabrina gently rubs the shadowy black mastiff on the head and neck. The mastiff breathes out a quick sigh. You say, "I came third three years ago."

Maurra grins at you.

You say, "Aiming to do two places better this year."

Maurra says, "Nice."

You cackle!

Tabrina grins at you.

Tabrina says, "I'm sure yas will do great at that challenge."

Tabrina nods firmly.

You say, "As long as there is ale."

You nod.

You grin.

Rogane's group just arrived.

Rogane gawks at you.

You grin at Rogane.

You turn to Rogane and cheer!

Rogane kisses you on the nose.

Lyllenyn bursts out in a resounding cheer!

Rogane deeply says, "Long time."

You exclaim, "Indeed!"

Rogane stares at you.

Riend raises an eyebrow in Rogane's direction.

You lean on Rogane.

Pereus exclaims, "Who wants to play drinking games?!"

Lord Roblar just arrived.

Lord Roblar just arrived.

Roblar grins at you.

Lyllenyn says, "I don't want to just play... I want to WIN."

Pereus turns to Lyllenyn and cheers!

Pereus exclaims, "Lets all get blasted!"

Lyllenyn says, "50k buyin? Gonna need to get some silver."

Rogane glances at Pereus.

Roblar deeply asks, "50K?"

Pereus says, "Whatever the table says, Im down."

Roblar deeply asks, "For drinkin?"

Roblar deeply exclaims, "Am in!"

Pereus exclaims, "Join up!"

Pereus says, "Its last man standing."

Pereus exclaims, "Whoever drinks the most and survives wins!"

Pereus says, "Everyone pays an ante, winner takes 75%."

Pereus exclaims, "Cmon cmon, less talking more drinking!"

Speaking to Pereus, you say, "If I wasn't so tired, id join ye."

Pereus frowns at you.

Pereus says, "Well drink till you pass out."

You grin at Pereus.

Lyllenyn asks, "What kind of dwarf passes on booze?"

You say, "I know... it's almost a crime."

You agree with Lyllenyn.

Lyllenyn grins.

Rogane deeply says, "I have a new drinking game for you."

Rogane taps Pereus lightly on his shoulder.

Pereus cocks his head at Rogane.

Rogane deeply says, "It's called, lets get drunk and see who dies..."

Pereus asks, "Isnt that how all drinking games are played?"

You say, "Ye know what...."

You join Pereus.

Pereus says, "Rightyo then, off we go."


[Volstrun's Whetter, Barroom]
Mismatched barstools showing signs of disrepair face a stained and badly damaged bar, which stands at the back of the taproom. Hanging on a peg behind the bar is a loaded heavy crossbow, and a quiver filled with bolts leans against the wall. Soot streaks blacken the walls where torches that provide some illumination to the room are chained. A narrow staircase leads to the second floor. You also see a droopy-jowled shadowy black mastiff, a large sign, a cheeky blond barmaid and a heavy wooden table.

** Last Man Standing **
The object of this drinking game is to be the last person sitting at the table.
This game requires at least 2 people to play, but no more then 10.
Buy-in for this game is either 2000, 10000 or 50000 coins
Winner gets 75% of total pot, less 25% for drinks and tips.

The rules:

Once the game starts, each player will be poured a shot of alcohol. Each player will be required to drink his or her shot to continue.

Failure to drink, passing out drunk and leaving the table for any reason will be cause for losing the game.

The bartender will call out the rounds and refill the shots, until there is only one person left.

If by chance all players passout or quit before a winner is announced, the bartender wins the pot.

A cheeky blond barmaid grins and yells, "We have a competition! I'll be serving various drinks each round. Those of you playing will need to drink your drink within 30 seconds of being served or you will be eliminated."

Round 1: All fallers

Pereus exclaims, "Last man/woman standing wins!"

A cheeky blond barmaid looks around at those still sitting at the table and says, "Looks like we still have a few competitors left. We'll pour the next set of drinks in just a moment."

You say, "You whimps don't stand a chance ye know.."

Tabrina glances over at you and winces.

You exclaim, "Dwarf on a mission here!"

Pereus scoffs.

Speaking to you, Corlyne says, "Some elves can hold their liquor...just not Vaalorians."

Pereus says, "I took second in the last drinking contest."

Pereus says, "Only to a technicality."

Pereus exclaims, "That the other person wasnt drinking!"

Round 2: Everyone is still conscious

You ask, "Call that a drink?"

Lyllenyn says, "No spilling."

You say, "I've seen strong drinks from cows udders."

Bellaja raises an eyebrow in your direction.

Speaking to you, Pereus exclaims, "I thought you were tired!"

Lyllenyn starts chuckling at you!

Corlyne glances at you.

You cackle at Pereus.

Third Round: Still all compus mentus

Fourth Round: Still awake

Fifth Round: All have hollow legs it seems!

You say, "Have rubbed stronger alcohol on my chest at night."

You stare at nothing in particular.

Pereus laughs softly, trying to hide his amusement.

Corlyne starts chuckling at you!

Speaking to Pereus, Bellaja says, "We were drinking before this." Lyllenyn starts chuckling at you!

Round Six: Slurp Slurp and we're still all up!

Speaking to you, Pereus says, "You're loving yourself right now arent ya." Round Seven: No deaths my alcohol poisoning - and all still conscious!

Round Eight: Looks like some a getting tipsey. But we all hold our own..

Round Nine: Hic! But no sick! All are hanging on in there!

Round Ten: Still all ok.

Round Eleven: Willing someone to keel over.

Round Twelve: Lyllenyn and Corlyne are out!

Round Thirteen: Pereus is out!

As you quickly drink the whiskey, you teeter from one side to the other for just a moment. Nothing to worry about.

Tabrina rapidly guzzles her whiskey. She leans to one side, then to the other, all the while not focusing on anything in particular.

A slim barmaid enters with a bucket of ice in her hand. She says, "Looks like Corlyne can't hold her liquor." She proceeds to pour the ice over Corlyne, trying to sober her up. The blond barmaid calls out, "Get out! Get up and get out! Game's over for you, Corlyne!"

A slim barmaid enters with a bucket of ice in her hand. She says, "Looks like Pereus can't hold his liquor." She proceeds to pour the ice over Pereus, trying to sober him up. The blond barmaid calls out, "Get out! Get up and get out! Game's over for you, Pereus!"

A slim barmaid enters with a bucket of ice in her hand. She says, "Looks like Lyllenyn can't hold her liquor." She proceeds to pour the ice over Lyllenyn, trying to sober her up. The blond barmaid calls out, "Get out! Get up and get out! Game's over for you, Lyllenyn!"

However this is clear evidence that the barmaid is a cheat! Watch what she says next, with three competitors still in the game.

A cheeky blond barmaid exclaims, "Awwww, what a shame. No one is left sitting. What a bunch of ninnies! Looks like I get to keep all these coins."

Pereus asks, "Whos left?"

Tabrina raises her hand.
Tabrina points at Bellaja.
Tabrina points at you!

Pereus drunkenly asks, "Drinks serving stop?"

You ask, "Oh we done?"

You ask, "Who won then?"

Tabrina says, "Bremerial bullied the barmaid."

Bellaja asks, "Do we all win?"

Bellaja grins.

Tabrina says, "Guess we could do another round."

I observed for an hour and then left to get some rest in the Horn and Bell pub.
