Subj: 14th Anniversary!
October is Aetolia's 14th Anniversary and we've packed in some events and prizes
I've tried my best to convert the times from GMT to a few other timezones (USA
East/EDT, London/BST, and Australia East/AEDT) but fair warning I may have
goofed! For the most accurate timing, refer to the GMT time or check the EVENTS
Rather than run the Artisanals and Bardics on a schedule, we've decided to
switch to doing them for special occassions with a theme - and our 14th
Anniversary will be the first of these! You have until the the month ends to
submit your entries through our website. Read HELP ARTISANALS and HLEP BARDICS
for more information.
The theme is: Horror.
Pretty straight-forward, a Starfall event with PvP and No Sharing turned on.
Being killed gives half your meteors to the person who killed you. Read HELP
STARFALL for more details.

Each city will put forth 3 champions to represent them in this Free-For-All
showdown! Teaming is allowed! Winning city will get the Epicurus statue until we

A fishing competition like no other! There will be multiple rounds during this
