HARNESS THE ELEMENTALS: INTRODUCTION AND RULES

 
 

Geomancer Herrolf of the Circle of Five has made a remarkable discovery of great import to the use and practice of Magick in Illyria.

"We know from the various Histories that Elementals have existed throughout the land of Illyria, but this is the first time we have been able to predict how and when they arise." he said.

"The energies released by lifeforce blend with the natural elements as well as the Spirits of the land - of Nature itself - and can cause Elementals to arise, bound to serve the first being that they encounter."

 

With a wry smile he added, "Obviously, the amount of lifeforce that blends with the land is critical; and the ancient Tournament battle sites around the Kingdom have witnessed the largest shedding of blood in recent years, so it's no surprise that Elementals are now rising at these locations! There have also been unconfirmed reports of Elementals rising at dead Cities as well, apparently drawn by the death that has occurred at these abandoned husks."

Whilst Geomancer Herrolf does not believe that the precise time when these Elementals rise is an exact science, he says that "Based on current observations, we're getting around four sightings every day on each Tournament Battle site. The first person the Elemental encounters in occupation of one of these sites when it rises, this person will bind the Elemental to his or her town."

The Council of Illyria has expressed interest in discovering more about these creatures, and will additionally reward players who bind Elementals to them with 20 Prestige per Elemental bound, to be distributed at midday on the 15th of July.

The Council added "But be warned, only one Lord or Lady can be in posession of the territory at the time the Elemental rises - and for this reason all Alliance, NAP and Confederation rules are suspended at these locations for the duration. Each Lord or Lady is on his or her own for this one."

HOW TO PARTICIPATE
Occupy and hold any of the following squares.
  • -500|500 - Fire [Plains]
  • 0|500 - Earth [Large Mountain]
  • 500|500 - Air [Large Hill]
  • 500|0 - Water [Large Forest]
  • 500|-500 - Fire [Plains]
  • 0|-500 - Earth [Large Mountain]
  • -500|-500 - Air [Large Hill]
  • -500|0 - Water [Large Forest]
Once every six hours, at a random time, an Elemental will spawn on each square, according to Altar type.

The occupier of the square will bind the Elemental to him or her and they will appear in the town unit pool of the first occupying army from the player who holds the square.

For the purposes of this tournament, on these squares, all affiliations outside the player's own towns have been suspended.  Please note that this means that Alliance, Confederations and NAP partners will all fight anyone except themselves (as a player) if they arrive on these squares.

This is a Player vs Player tournament; however we do expect that some players and alliances might collaborate on their strategies.  As far as we are concerned, anything goes on these squares.

As the Elemental awards are given during the tournament, there will be no further unique unit prizes when the tournament closes.

At the end of the Tournament, every player who received an Elemental will receive 20 Prestige per Elemental received (regardless of whether they survive till the end of the tournament or not).

Each player with the most Elementals gathered from each of the 8 Spawn Points will also receive a Tournament Winner's Statue that can be placed at the winners' choice on any unoccupied map square within 10 squares of their Capital City.  This Monument will bear their name and will be a permanent marker on the World Map.

You can see your progress against other players and/or alliances on the Tournaments page which is accessible via a satellite button on the World Map main icon.

THE TOURNAMENT RULES, SMALL PRINT

    * The Tournament runs until Midday Server Time (GMT+1) on Friday, 15 July 2011.

    * Anyone who arrives on one of these squares is deemed a Tournament Participant.

We wish you the best of luck.

SC

So while waiting impatiently for a faction update, I wake up and find us all gifted with another tourny.  However it's more of a gift for the experienced players and vets whereas the lower players are spectators- Go Kurdruk!

Maybe we need the various elementals to destroy the Heart of Corruption and/or other things on the map yet to be found/released?
