Event Description

Welcome to the first annual Paladin's Call. There is a hole in our community, and there is nothing that can fill it. The best we can do is strive to live like him. This event is a fundraiser for a fund in memory of Dave/Vawn. More details of the fund are below.

The team has been working hard, and we will be bringing you a little of everything. Questing, tournaments, games, friends, and fundraising.
Friday night we have some fun questing in store for you.
Saturday enjoy some slightly skewed tounaments run by Sirs Temorse and Sagaen. The Adventurers Guild will be looking for some brave souls. In the evening, grab a drink and pull up to the campfire for stories, songs, and laughter. (site is damp. enjoy a few drinks, but maintain control and volume or we will ask you to leave)
Sunday enjoy more combat tournaments, a poker game or two, or just relax in the sun.

The majority of this event is family friendly, although certain quests may be difficult. Contact Stephen Sanford for more information on Friday night questing, and Steve M for the poker tourney.

Friday Night quest
The Four Aspects

This is a continuation of the newbie night quest from WPI 2021. This story arc is geared for players with five years of adventuring or less. Please consider NPCing if available.

9 months ago the hopeless village of Nathan’s Hollow was taken by a necromancer. Ones of
Faith, Purity, Light and Hope have decided to venture out to return that which has been lost. In the lands near the lost kingdom a great evil has returned and blighted the lands. Those of you with courage will need to come together as one force to return the light to this land and free the people of Nathan’s Hollow.

There will be some indoor areas where ranged weaponry and weapons over 5’ will not be permitted for safety.

Interested in a meal plan? Saturday dinner and Sunday brunch will be served. Contact Kelly for details additional 15$ YOU WILL NOT GO HUNGRY.

Other Notes

All money donated from the event will go into the Paladin's Fund.

Paladin’s Fund
Of all the things Dave loved, our community was always high on his list. No matter how hard things were, he pushed through to make other peoples day better, or support people when they needed it.

With this thought in mind, money raised at the Paladin’s Call event will be put into the Paladin’s Fund. When we have a member of our community in financial duress, the fund can be used to help alleviate some of the stress.

While each case will be weighed on an individual basis, we do have some basic guidelines:
*To be used for medical expenses, utilities, necessities, etc.
*Amount of funds available is wholly dependent on what is raised at each Paladin’s Call event
People can receive funds either by submitting an email, or be nominated by someone else. Any and all of this information can be kept anonymous. Please remember this is only open to members of our community.

Please feel free to reach out to us at paladinfund@gmail.com with questions. We cannot accept any requests to assist until after the first Paladin’s Call event, slated for the last weekend in July.
