Rucesion is renowned as the city of magic. The wizards of Rucesion played a pivotal role in the fight against darkness during the Shadows War, researching tirelessly to keep the encroaching darkness at bay. The pursuit of knowledge led to the discovery of a sixth element: Light. Knowledge has also been instrumental in enabling Aislings to realize their full potential and understand the natural world.
In this event, competitors will participate in a trivia match to determine who among them is worthy to represent the town of Rucesion. Come join us in the temple of Luathas for this event.

Mileth Village -- the hometown for newly sparked Aislings. Mileth is traditionally renowned for mentorship, guidance and education for young and aspiring Aislings. The town represents growth and development. Aislings revisit the Altar and Temple of Choosing at different milestones throughout their journey, from choosing a class, to mastering their path, to crafting items of great ability.
Think back to when your very first sibling sparked in Mileth. Did they ever tell you about that first mentor who took them under their wing? How they inspired your family to join the community of Temuair? Be that mentor! In the spirit of Mileth, contestants must hold a brief lesson ((10 minutes)) with a ((5 minute)) audience question period, in one of the five College subjects: Lore, Philosophy, Literature, Art, or History. The class can consist of a lecture and/or activity.
Choose a topic about which you are knowledgeable. Prepare a lesson plan. Be creative and inspiring! Invoke worldly themes ((themes relevant to Dark Ages)). Communicate your lesson effectively. A panel of judges will assign points based on the quality of your teaching skills. Event will be held at the Philosophy Classroom in Mileth College.
Show your creativity and wit on stage to prove your mind is as sharp as your blade as you improvise scenarios given by the Troupe. Bring a flair for the dramatic as you compete against your opponents and stretch the limits of credulity as you make our judges laugh, cry, and cheer. Event will be held at the Suomi Garamonde Theatre.
Do you have the jousting skills to be one of King Bruce's top knights? Face off against the other finalists in a round robin jousting tournament to determine the Champion! Participants will sprint to their designated spot and repeat a phrase exactly as described in order to score a point. There will be three phrases per round, and one point per phrase. Score the most points to prove your worthiness! The joust will be held at the Mileth Fairgrounds.
