Quick update regarding this event - interest is good with a lot of people looking into attendance (always appreciated), also the first few payees are on board. The juicy bit of the update - realistically this could well be the last m2e edition tournament I will run before m3e releases (obviously we don't know for sure but in the coming months we will find out). So because of this I am looking to make this the best event yet and go out with a bang.

As such I have some ideas that I am planning to make sure the m2e Faux at the Forge series goes out with a bang. These include:

Winners trophy plus medals for 2nd and 3rd
Best painted trophy
Favourite opponent trophy
The royal poop trophy (lowest positioned player)

I plan on this event having an abundance of prizes so that most people get something, each player will be given a single raffle ticket and additional tickets will be purchasable. The funds raised will be donated to charity (not decided yet but likely a mental health charity).

I am planning on each entrant getting swag, I am keeping this close to my chest for the time being and keeping it a surprise.

I hope this entices the taste buds a little and gets people eager to join in :)

Quick update - we are mid-August with seven paid entrants and some more who have confirmed attendance but still need to pay. The trophies have arrived and can be seen here

I am currently in the process of confirming what will be in the swag bag but it is likely to be a foil card (faction based) and a measuring widget (amongst a few other things).

I have reached out to Wyrd to try and procure something special for the raffle alongside mystery boxes and some other things to be decided.

There was also some talk from the local players about doing a first master challenge, so only using the first master you picked up for the event. This will be optional of course and there is no pressure to do this but if enough people participate I will try and do something to commemorate the highest placed original master.

Plenty of time until this event but the reduced ticket cost is coming to an end within a week.

So far half of the tickets are sold with many more being picked up on payday.

Confirmed prize support for the charity raffle will be provided by Wyrd, Leodis games and Chimeric Designs (so far).

Swag is in the process of being manufactured :)
