Competition: Bag Toss [2038 Seahold Summer Gather]

Even with the move to the South, Gathers are still a thing to look forward to, though in the Walled Hold they appear to be called Festivals instead. Either way, Gathers and Festivals are a time of fun to enjoy when they come around.

Bag Toss
Sign up until 18:30
Competition Begins 19:00
The Bag Toss is a game about brute strength. Thick canvas bags are filled with sand and tied off. Each contestant throws the heavy sand bags as far as they can. There will be three rounds, with the people with the shortest distance being disqualified while the people with the longest distance continues on. In the case of a draw, the bags will be retossed until one achieves a longer distance.

The rules:
  • Bags provided must be used
  • Contestants are not allowed to open their or other sandbags
  • Only one throw per round
  • Cheaters will be disqualified

The prizes:
  • 1st place: 100 marks
  • 2nd place: 60 marks
  • Participation: 10 marks

OC Note: Please sign up via role play. Please be sure to list any talents and abilities your character may have that pertain to strength. These will be taken into account. The participants will be randomized and whoever is last will be dropped from the competition. The last round will be done a little differently. Whoever makes it to the last round will have a d20 rolled to see who receives the highest number. They will be the Grand Champion. Again, any abilities will be taken into consideration.

G'rak of Blue Mehemuth

G'rak had originally been hesitant about coming to this gather, as he still sometimes felt nervous around such big crowds. He had come far from the nervous wreck he once was, but it seemed that the monstrous bluerider still held a certain amount of shyness and reservation towards certain things, such as big Gathers. It was, of course, his happy dragon that convinced him that he should go and have a good time.

Of course, as soon as G'rak dismounted Mehemuth, the blue squealed happily and pranced around a bit before going off to find another dragon to chat with. The bright blue's silly antics made G'rak chuckle to himself as he walked around the Gather, seeing what all he could do. He quickly found the bag toss competition, and decided that such a competition of strength would be right up his alley. G'rak approached the person handling registration, and said, "Hello, I'm G'rak, and I would like to join this contest."

Esca checked once again to see if the little pot holding his egg was secure in the bag he'd been given to make carrying it easier. He still couldn't believe that Adianca had talked him into buying this thing...whatever it was. Not even the merchant knew what sort of egg it was or what was within the egg. His best guess was that it was a normal firelizard. Esca really didn't care what it was. He was sure that he and Adi would like it regardless...unless it turned out to be a pain in the ass. He really hoped that wouldn't turn out to be the case. He made sure the sand was still hot before continuing on.

His roaming about brought him to where one of the competitions was being held. Esca was not much of a competitor...unless math was involved...then he was amazing. However, the competition he came upon now was one that he thought even he would be able to do. Perhaps if he managed to place any he'd have a few spare marks to buy Talen something with. It was a silly thought, but since they didn't get to see each other as much anymore maybe having something to remind the candidate he hadn't forgotten about him and what they had to look forward to wouldn't be a bad idea. "I'd like to sign up please." Esca said as he approached the sign in table.
