The Grand Malarite Trophy Leagues: First Hunt

Post by Excrucia » Sun Dec 16, 2018 8:38 pm

In the holy name of Malar, first of all Predators
By decree of Excrucia, hopeful hunter of Malar, a purse of coin will be rewarded to trophies of the grisliest and most spectacular kills of dangerous foes you yourself have wrought.

Marks will be awarded for:
  • The known Ferocity of the Foe.
  • The recounting of how you brought the Foe down
  • Evidence that the struggle was epic and the battle was prolonged
  • Lessons provided that you have learned from the kill.

Excrucia will be at the Dripping Dagger in Waterdeep at the time specified, but for one day prior to this those who cannot reach Waterdeep will be encouraged to contact her and arrange a judging of their trophy.

Trophy Marks will be tallied over the following hunts to come, with a League to establish who is the finest predator among you.

The First Hunt will give rewards as follows.

1st Place - First Hunt Champion - 30 Platinum Pieces, 20 Trophy Marks
2nd Place - First Hunt Unbroken - 20 Platinum Pieces, 15 Trophy Marks
3rd Place - First Hunt Unbowed - 10 Platinum Pieces, 10 Trophy Marks
4th Place - First Hunt Unbent - 5 Platinum Pieces, 5 Trophy Marks

League Awards will also give Bonus Trophy Marks -
Best Lesson Learned - 10 Marks
Most Gruesome Trophy - 10 Marks
The Excrucia Award for Fearsome Recklessness - 10 Marks

OOC: Hello, I think I should cancel this! I do not think it would generate adequate interest and having met another Malarite, it might not be in the best spirit of the faith!

I thought it was a great idea, personally. Malar's is a pretty wide-ranging faith ethically, and this seemed a good way to involve more people with a somewhat more neutral-leaning show of his dogma.

Not that I'm even remotely an expert on Malar. But there are many different ways to roleplay faith in pretty much all the gods. Just ask a certain very dark Kelemvorite wizardess or a certain holy paladin who disagrees with much of her predecessors' religious views to the point of thinking them outright heracy.

Anyway, hope we see some more from Malar soon! Best of luck. :)

I agree with Areia, and if you host it somewhere other than Waterdeep Gottschalk might show up. =)

I, too, concur with Areia and Grenwyn above. I'm afraid the event is at a time difficult for me to attend, but if I may.. I'm not sure which point in particular wasn't in the spirit of the faith, but I do think it was entirely appropriate. One of the recent Malarite events I attended had a Hunt, and some sharing of personal hunts around a campfire after, which would be similar to this - so it doesn't seem out of line at all.

Either way, maybe you could have an adaptation of the existing event to marry the perspectives. Let us know if the event is still on!

Hi! I'm going to be the devil's advocate here.

I think you might find you feel more comfortable hosting this event after some more hours, levels and most importantly : roleplay with the community.

I enjoy and support the idea and think it will be great fun when YOU decide to run forward with it, but my advice would definitely be my above statement.
Beshaba potatoes.

Chiming in as a viewer from the outside and one of those guys playing a filthy lawful goodie goodie.

I actually really like the idea, it seems in line with Malarite dogma (as an outsider, admittedly) and as Areia said, seems tenable and neutral enough for people not outright hostile to them to take part. Even the good guys like to hunt big game!

Give us the word, I look forward to it.
