I signed up for this a couple of months back, not entirely sure of what I was letting myself in for.
There is an organiser, M Pax, and a number of people who are hosting a tournament of on-line games (see link for list), and I’ve signed up for the House of Dueling Bards, where Cassandra Webb is hosting a tournie where my character ‘jousts’ with someone else’s character. If I’ve understood this correctly, then either George or Willoughby will be going head to head with someone else for the honour of the Princelings’ world.
There is also a VelociRaffle, to which I’ve donated prizes.
I was as much in the dark as you are until Cassandra sent me instructions,and I’m nabbed an explanation from her blog below. Hop over to M Pax’s Realms Faire each day this week and see what’s going on and enter the raffles, or better still go to Cassandra Webb (and hit the tab ‘blog’) and vote for me anywhere I need votes. And check out #RealmsFaire on Twitter. Ends on Friday – the 13th :O
Just have fun!
(reblogged from cassandrawebb.com)
- Two writers take a hero or heroine of their own creation and the readers get to decide who’d win if a battle took place. Join us to cheer your fav character on and meet some new characters to fall in love with.
- How exactly do you duel? I send duellists a list of about 6 questions, they answer them in a line or two, and then the magic happens. Simple really
- Duels will go live the eve of their date at 6pm (Australian Time), and stay live until the following eve, giving 24 hrs to muster as many readers and commenters for each character as possible. Winners will be drawn from the comments as soon as the duel finishes. So be sure to leave a contact email in your comment, or check back to see if you won!
- Leave a comment following the duels to be in the running for one, or more, of these fantastic reads.
So please go to the duel site and VOTE FOR
ME, er, sorry, WILLOUGHBY – whose first duel is TODAY (late 9th to late 10th, so only to early 10th if you’re in California :O )
