Day 1 of Pestivus was fun for all! Many brave souls took to the PVP arena of Hammersmith's Inn and several emerged victorious with treasures as their rewards.

Day 2 is tomorrow! Level 28 to 30 team PVP! Two people per team and no other rules. Great prizes and fun to be had for everyone. See you tomorrow at 9:00 PM PST!

Last night's foot races were fiercely competitive! Guys from Internus Sus have been dominating Pestivus events all week, but last night Thinking from Green Mists gave them a real run for the month.

Tonight at 9pm PST is solo quest speed run competition. Tomorrow is team quest speed run competition.

Join us on Thelanis. /joinchannen Pestivus. And on Discord https://discord.gg/cvCKeqdF

See you there!

Nice! This is great. I'd suggest anyone interested to maybe check out that PvP stuff, as it can be a lot of fun in a context like this.

Dang it! Wish I'd seen this earlier, the PvP looks like a lot of fun. :) Sadly, my phone is too old to install discord and I'm terrible at completing stuff on reaper difficulty to join in the last bit.
