Sa Tarna Harvest Festival

The days grow shorter as the month of Se'Kara and the second turning approaches; and the Sa-Tarna, the Life-Daughter, in the fields turns golden, rich with the promise of a plentiful harvest ~ and food for the winter.

As the slaves begin the harvest, working from sunrise  into the night, thoughts turn to the festival, the time of great rejoicing as the harvest is brought home.

Noon-2 PM     Isle of the Two Scimitars

  • Warrior Run - Slave Hunt                

Welcome to the Scimitar Warrior Run/Slave Hunt Competition -  where Masters and Mistresses chase and cap slaves.. and each other.  The winning Master/Mistress with the most caps is honored with a prize as is the slave captured the least  number of times!!   You may want to make yourself familiar with the lands of Scimitar and Scimitar Plains prior to the competition if you have not been here.

Objective . . .To have some fun, test your resolve and get bruised up a bit!

All participants will gather to begin the game at Scimitar arena. Warriors and Frees gather and stay INSIDE THE ARENA. Slaves gather OUTSIDE.

Slaves are given a head start to run and hide ANYWHERE ON SCIMITAR OR SCIMITAR PLAINS.   Warriors and other Frees capture, bind as many slaves (male/female) as possible, returning their caps to the starting point SCIMITAR ARENA  where their caps are recorded.  

Slaves then are freed to run back to the combat area.  Warriors and Frees also return to the combat area for their next capture.  The one with the most caps wins bragging rights, unless the captives raise the stakes (be sure to see below!!).

Sounds easy so far, but wait....

What if the one you're after is being chased by another? Then beat the other Warrior, bash him, Mad Max him and get to the slave first. When you reach the arena, the captive is yours, free and clear.  And if you can cap that other Warrior.. hehe.. you can bring him in and add him to your capture count!!
