For as long as man has walked Myraeon, he has looked to the skies.
Hopeful, that one day he might be as the birds.
With each endeavour, he strives to become as them, through ingeneuity of handicraft or acumen of the arcane. Ever closer he is drawn, but never quite reaching that lofty goal.
Now, you will have a chance to see how close one can get to truly knowing.
All those with curious minds, register now for education in the operation of the Ironwood Ornithopter, and a chance to compete for prizes in a daring display of aerial acrobatics.
On August 20th, after registration, trainees and competitors will travel by train from Verdisio to Ironwood on the maiden journey of the Verdisio Railway. Upon arrival, food and refreshments will be provided to all in attendance.
Competitors will be brought skyward in a military Interceptor in groups of three, after which they will dive through a set of challenges devised for displays of flying skill. Each individual ride up will cost 500 Florins, and cash prizes will be awarded upon successful completion of challenges, with a maximum of three attempts. Any competitors who successfully complete at least one challenge may enter into the Championship, to be held at a later date.
((Sign up in this thread for Elytra lessons and competition! Walk-ins without registration will be charged a 1000 Florin entry fee. Read the rules, 'sign' the document, and you get to fly an Elytra!))
August 20th, 9pm EST - ???
