Subject: Kindred Games Return - 2023
Date: 2023/11/25


We are excited to be running the Kindred Games, formerly known as Highman Games, once again! Please note that the Kindred Games will be taking place from 9pm EDT on Friday, December 1st through Sunday, December 3rd at 11:59 PM EDT.

Portals will be placed out in all towns, allowing you to instantly transport to Jirkil’s Hilltop located at a distant meadow deep in the Dragonspine Mountains.

Given that this is a compact festival running for only three days, with portals going out globally, and the closing being punctual, we will be releasing a variety of information before Friday Night. Some of the things you can look forward to seeing before the games open are:

  • An Update to the FESTIVAL Verb that will detail the schedule and some of the shops to expect.
  • A Shop List & Fully populated Shop Information.
  • A Schedule for the Games.
  • Several Lore Documents

This year, there will be some roleplaying opportunities that will be hinted at in a vignette slated to be released soon.
