Festival Activities

Make your rolls for any of the games you would like to try in your private threads. Don't post about them in the game thread until I tell you what else to include(like prizes!).

Ogre Smash - A Test of Strength"Step on up, boys! No girl likes a noodle-armed weakling. Let's see if you've got the makings of a man in ya!"
- Das Korvut, Owner of Red Dog Smithy

A weight is placed on one end of a board set over a pivot. On the other end of the board is a vertical log with a groove running up some 10 feet, where a bell is affixed. A weight is set in the groove, and hitting the nearest end of the board will send the weight traveling up the log. Three different colors brightly painted along the groove note degrees of success. Characters are given a wooden mallet to strike the board and try to ring the bell. Make a STR check and compare it to the following:
  • 5 or under: The weight doesn't even budge, drawing laughter from the nearby crowd.
  • 6-10: The weight barely travels up the red section, drawing a disappointed groan from the crowd.
  • 11-15: The weight makes it halfway up the yellow section. There is some light applause from the crowd.
  • 16-21: The weight makes it up and dings the bell. The crowd breaks into applause.
  • 22+: The weight smashes the bell, breaking the device. The crowd cheers and whistles.


The Devil Hunt - A Test of Dexterity
"Do you have what it takes to bring down the infamous Sandpoint Devil? Take a shot and see."
Ven Vinder, Owner of Sandpoint General Store

This is an archery range set up on the beach down by the Lighthouse. 50 yards from the firing line is the silhouette of a menacing winged horse. Set into this silhouette is an archery target. Make a ranged attack roll(-2 if you aren't proficient with martial weapons) and compare it to the following AC:
  • 10 or under: You completely miss. Those present get a good laugh.
  • 11-13: Outer ring. Ven chuckles and says it's a good thing that's not the real devil.
  • 14-16: Middle ring. Ven congratulates you on a decent shot.
  • 17-19: Inner ring. Ven congratulates you on wounding the beast.
  • 20+: Bullseye! Ven loudly proclaims that you have slain the Sandpoint Devil and saved the town!


Pie Eating Contest - A Test of Fortitude
Sandpoint Savories is sponsoring a pie-eating contest in the main square. A crowd favorite, contestants' hands are tied behind their backs, and whoever eats the most pie in 5 minutes is declared the victor. Roll a FORT check and compare it to the following contestants:

NPC 1: 10
NPC 2: 5
NPC 3: 13
NPC 4: 16
NPC 5: 18


A Codgy Quiz - A Test of Intelligence
Brodert Quink and Veznutt Parooh have set up a stand with dozens of books and a large hourglass. They quiz contestants on a variety of subjects. Contestants are free to use the provided books to look up answers, but doing so takes up precious time. Make an INT check and compare it to the following.
  • 5 or under: You don't know the answer to the first question, and can't find it in any of the books. The old men suggest you try your hand at the Ogre Smash instead.
  • 6-10: You answer a couple questions, but spend too much time looking through page after page. The old men are disappointed.
  • 11-15: You answer several questions, but get stuck on a tough one and can't find the answer. The old men seem impressed enough.
  • 16-21: You answer 7 questions, only getting stuck once or twice. The old men are impressed and congratulate you on your knowledge.
  • 22+: You answer all 10 questions, never even having to touch a book. The old men are delighted and invite you to discuss history and politics with them.


Voon's Riddles - A Test of Wisdom
"They test your might, I test your mind! Can you solve my little riddles?"
- Vorvashali Voon, Owner of The Feathered Serpent

The excitable and eclectic mystic has set up a table with a few intricate wooden puzzles and riddles to test the mind. Vorvashali gets more animated the further a person progresses. Make a WIS check and compare it to the following:
  • 9 or under: You are stumped by the first riddle, Vorvashali looks disappointed and shoos you away.
  • 10-12: You answer the first riddle, but cannot figure out the first puzzle. Vorvashali snatches the puzzle away in annoyance.
  • 13-15: You pass the first two tests, but falter on the second riddle. Vorvashali congratulates you for making it that far.
  • 16-19: You pass the first three tests, but get stuck on the second puzzle. Vorvashali looks impressed.
  • 20+: You correctly solve the final riddle. Vorvashali jumps up and down in excitement and starts bragging about you to everyone nearby.


Talent Show - A Test of Charisma
"Ladies and gentlemen! Boys and girls! Who among you could be the next great entertainer of Varisia?"
- Cyrdak Drokkus, Owner of Sandpoint Theater

After the morning speeches, Cyrdak holds a talent show on the stage erected in front of the cathedral. Make either a Performance check or a straight-up CHA check and compare it to the other would-be entertainers:

NPC 1: 17
NPC 2: 19
NPC 3: 1
NPC 4: 14
NPC 5: 15


Dunk a Pixie - Because Why Not?
Kaye Tesarani has set up one of the more popular attractions in front of The Pixie's Kitten. A large wooden tub has been erected, with a seat suspended above the water. Contestants who are of age can try their hand at hitting a target with a ball to dunk the seat's occupant into the water. It's not as easy as it sounds, however, as the pixies are very good at distracting contestants.

While this game technically doesn't have any prizes, successfully dunking a pixie grants you the opportunity to assist them out of the water, and they will accompany you during the festival "in order to dry off". If you wish to participate, post your character's preference for who they would like to dunk, then make a Will check and a ranged attack roll. If you score above a 12 on both, you will dunk the pixie.

Also available:

- Harrow readings. If you're interested, let me know in your private thread and I'll set one up for you.
