View Full Version : Pestivus for the rest of us! - Thelanis

01-02-2010, 09:20 PM

Pestivities begin January 9th at 2:00pm EST

Pestivus is a Pestilence guild sponsored live event located on the Thelanis server. Many of you may remember Barryman's Bash, another live event that was sponsored by Pestilence. Unfortunately, Berryman is not playing anymore, but from his original idea PESTIVUS was born. Everyone on the server is encouraged to come participate in the events. There will be good times and great prizes for all to be had!

Since this forum is moderated, all info and updates about PESTIVUS will be posted in the main thread on the Thelanis forums here: http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=222845
During the event, live information will be broadcasted in the pestivus channel: /joinchannel pestivus
