Casino Night

We know this is the real reason that you all come to Beltane, the chance to wager big and win bigger!

This year we will have a few new games, and many of the classic favorites. We will be hosting our always famous fighting pit in the feast hall. Come, fight, and wager for, or against those in the pit. You will be able to bet against the house or against fellow fighters.

Along side the fighting pit we will also have our second most popular game 'Goblin Strong Arm.' This is a game of strength, cunning, and mobility. You need not all three, if you excel in the other areas. For this game the house will sponsor a player, if you can defeat them you will win a prize!

We will be introducing a new game to casino night as well, Kings Gold, it is a dice game where your riches and fate live in the roll of the dice. Each player must pay to play, the house will match, and the winner takes all! We will also have a few other new games that will be announced closer to the event. 

 

Three great feasts

  • Friday feast: We will be serving our ever popular kale, sausage and potato soup. We will have assorted fruits available as well, as side items. We will also have a Vegan option available. 
  • Saturday Breakfast: We will have biscuits, sausage gravy and a vegetarian gravy and biscuits option. Get up, get moving and get some grub.
  • Saturday Feast:This meal will be Ham pineapple, chicken with sweet potatoes, and a vinaigrette salad, with fruits and rolls.

Themed Battles: 

Are you ready for the MOST epic battle?
We have it planned for you and your closest 400+ friends!

 

Battle Scenarios and  Rules:

  • Save the Civilians: The Imperiums are fighting to defend the Civilians from the onslaught of the invading Chaos army. The Imperiums are defending their Citizens (rocks) using swords and shields against the Chaos army wielding a single sword. The Chaos army must attempt to use their vast numbers to overwhelm the Imperium, sweep in fast and snatch up the Civilians from the city and return the to the waste lands where they will be imprisoned forever. The Imperium must fight to defend the Civilians and help return any civilian that gets taken to the waste land back to the city limit.  This is a timed game, and the teams will be stacked in favor of the Chaos armies. Chaos must move all the Civilians to their prison before time is up.  
  • Last Army Standing: Each warlord will line up with their armies, each in a different corner of the field. The battles will continue until only one army remains. These will be the biggest fights, and will test your skill with a sword and your Warlords ability to muster a well rounded, or maybe just overwhelmingly large force.
  • Four Corners Battle for relics: Each army will have a few Relics in a shrine that needs to  be defended. If your team loses their Relics they will no longer be able to respawn.  The goal of the game is to destroy the other armies. Each team has a limited number of respawns, so if you can't steal their relics then you just need to slaughter them over and over. If your Relics are stolen you are not able to respawn until they are returned to your shrine. Warriors will respawn in groups of five. Spawn camping and holding another teams empty shrine will be against the rules. 
  • Warlords Last Stand: Each army will be given 100 rez’s. Upon the exhaustion of all 100 rez’s warrior deaths will be permanent for the duration of this battle. Once a warlord is killed after the rez’s are all used the rest of the warlords army dies as well. For this final battle the power of the gods are with the warlord and his lieutenants. The warlord will deal red strikes with any melee weapon they us. The lieutenants and the warlord will be immune to missile weapons.
