Community Events / Trick or Treat at Dragon's Gate Baronial Manor
« on: October 30, 2017, 03:29:23 PM »
Just like last year, Dragons Gate Baronial Manor once more opens it doors to the public on Halloween night for a family friendly, fun-for-all-ages night of trick-or-treating. Easy on the tricks but offering plenty of treats, costumed kiddies gets fifteen themed rooms in this not so scary haunted house. At the end, there are plenty of snacks and even a mini pumpkin painting station (with quick dry paint, of course!). The parents? lounge is back and better than before too, so drop by between 7 and 11 and take a load off while the kids do all the hard work!

RhyDin Election / 2017 Gubernatorial Election Cage Match
« on: September 20, 2017, 11:03:07 PM »
One night only! On Saturday, September 30th at 9:00 PM by the Eastern Clock, take a break from all of the politics for some good old fashioned violence for the sake of violence. Several of our gubernatorial candidates will be facing off against one another in a free for all brawl of epic proportions. And like always, it'll be hosted by two-time Diamond and current Baron of Dragon's Gate, Claire Gallows along with everyone's favorite Anvil and former holder of MoonBeryl, Kruger Allen!

North of New Haven and on the edge of Battlefield Park, follow the torch light to high rise seating the encircles The Discombobulator!

A 20x20 foot plexiglass nightmare, The Discombobulator is not your ordinary cage. When activated, the walls will emit their own light, forming arbitrary patterns along the surface to delight the crowd and confuse the candidates. The twenty foot walls are broken up midway by bars and partial walls/ledges in case the candidates find themselves scrabbling for a solid hold. If that?s not enough disorientation, the entire structure rotates along a central axis. Intriguing as that might be, it still is not quite enough to do justice to the name. The Discombulation becomes complete as the cage pivots and pitches suddenly and without warning. Do you find yourself asking why? The Governor often needs to be able to act, even when their footing is unstable, and be strong willed when opinions (much like those pretty lights) rise against them.

((Additional information posted below, feel free to drop your polyvore sets or anything else related to the Cage Match here. Will be hosted on RDI live at 9 PM ET. Using the Southern Glen room.))

Community Events / Hangman Distillery Grand Opening
« on: January 21, 2017, 06:44:18 PM »

Set on the southern bank of the river, Hangman Distillery?s doors open to the public on Saturday, January 28th at noon! To celebrate the opening, the distillery?s proprietors have opened the complex to the public for tours, free tastings, and a grand opening party that will last until the final patron departs (Or is kicked out. Either way!). For those concerned about recent unrest in the city, be assured that security will be on hand to ensure that a peaceful night is had. All residents of Rhydin, human, non-human and everything in between are welcome!

Tour the distillery and watch the distillation and barrelling process live before the barrels are taken away to a temporally enhanced aging room.

Ghost Bear Whiskey--
An evolutionary liquor, the Ghost Bear experience begins with the scent and ends with a continued flavor on the palate long after swallowing. Sporting notes of toffee, oak, nut, fruit (black cherry and ripe peach), and dark chocolate espresso, the complex flavor is laid over a lingering, leafy damp kiln smoke reminiscent of leather, tobacco, and a hint of wild game.
Slugger?s Select Honey Whiskey--
Sporting a pungent honey scent right off the bat, it also has a touch of earthiness to it in the form of fudge, all spice, and complimentary floral notes. On the tongue, Slugger?s Select boasts a rich and dark flavor with sweet milky coffee, dark chocolate and demarara sugar lightened by some candied lemon hints. From start to finish you can expect rich and sweet honey undertone beneath it all ? lightly pungent and floral, with a real honey flavor.
Black Bear Bourbon--
With Black Bear Bourbon, taste a melding of candied citrus, blueberry, nectarine, and sultana, all pulled together with honeyed vanilla and orange. Underneath, there is a kiss of cocoa, mint, and cinnamon married with tobacco leaves, leather, and a tasteful bourbon barrel char for a warm finish.
Gallows Private Label Select--
With a remarkable aroma of tropical fruits like pineapple, grapefruit, guava, mango, and peach, the Gallows Private Label Select also offers hints of toffee-coated nuts, vanilla fudge, cedar, and cocoa. It finishes with very light note of peat smoke for a smooth, heady, and haunting flavor combination that lingers long after the last drop.
Fireshot Cinnamon Whiskey--
Cinnamon obviously dominates Fireshot?s flavor. Equal parts sweet and spicy, it?s alarmingly drinkable. At first whiff it seems quite fiery and while it has a big dose of cinnamon, it carries a pleasant heat with accents of brown sugar and butter underneath the cinnamon and spice with just a hint of barrel char to balance the sweetness.

All of the above liquors will be available on hand for straight tastings or for purchase in mixed drinks and bottled form.

To make sure that all the booze doesn?t go straight to partygoers? heads, an assortment of appetizers will be available throughout the night as well.

Sriracha creole deviled eggs
Hummus with toasted whole wheat flatbread
Poutine with bacon
Crispy green beans with remoulade
Bavarian pretzel sticks with cheese
Fried cheese curds with spicy ranch
Buffalo chicken wing dip
Ultimate nachos with cheddar jack cheeses, queso cheese, chili, lettuce, diced tomatoes ?n green onions, kalamata olives, jalape?os, and cilantro crema
Stout glazed ribs
Fried calamari with marinara
Loaded potato skins

All who attend the grand opening will leave with a commemorative Hangman Distillery shotglass

A number of door prizes will also be given out:

Copper cocktail kit

Set of 6 vintage gold whiskey glasses

Set of 5 steel whiskey bottle pourer stoppers

Waterford whiskey decanter

Whiskey quartz set in white gold

Set of 4 Whiskey Makes Me Frisky tumblers

Set of 6 bullet whiskey stones

Flask filled with Limited Edition Triple Crown Select Scotch

Antique Japanese sterling silver overlay whiskey kit

Mini keg of Limited Edition Triple Crown Select Scotch

To finish the night out, Claire led any remaining friends into a rousing (and likely drunken) rendition of Happy Birthday to Cooper, the man who made the whole distillery possible. A whiskey barrel birthday cake was served to any who wished for dessert. She left the candles off if only because that many candles would surely be a fire hazard.

[[Board only event. Feel free to post outfits or visits here. Any who post will receive a shot glass icon. Door prizes will be drawn a few days after the shindig just so people have time to post. Enjoy!]]

Community Events / Trick or Treat at Dragon's Gate Baronial Manor
« on: October 31, 2016, 07:48:19 PM »
For one night only, the Dragon's Gate Baronial Manor has been transformed into a (family friendly) haunted house that goes light on the tricks but offers plenty of treats for the children of Rhydin City. The former dueling school gives trick-or-treaters fifteen rooms of fun and candy, each with a different theme and all under the well lit supervision of adults. Real ones, not the pseudo-adults that try to pass for grown ups around here. There's even a parents' lounge where they can take a load off for a little bit as their kids work through the school.

Drop by on Halloween from 7pm-11pm!

RhyDin Election / 2016 Gubernatorial Election Cage Match
« on: October 02, 2016, 05:52:13 PM »
Saturday, October 8th, take a break from election weekend with the cage match to end all cage matches! Our gubernatorial candidates will face one another in a duel of fists showdown at 10:00 PM by the Eastern Clock. This year, head out to Overlord?s Isle in the bay, west of the city, for a good old fashioned throwdown.

First we brought you the three tier Crucible. Last year came the razor wire Hell In A Cell. This year, we?re throwing it way back (and down) with The Pit.

Built just a stone?s throw from the Overlord?s Manor, The Pit looks like any old fighting hole. Appearances are deceiving! At its deepest, the pit sits six feet below the ground while a raised wooden deck surrounds the twenty foot diameter hole. Spectators are welcome to climb the observation deck to watch Katt Batten, Francis Collins, and Ammy Spiritor duke it out in a three way brawl down below in the mud. The sloped bars of the lip of the pit is lined with barbed wire to prevent anyone from getting in or out. Once they?ve entered through an underground hatch, nobody leaves until the victor has been declared. As the duel progresses and high tide rolls in, the sandy walls will slowly disintegrate to fill the ring with wet muck until the combatants are fighting not only each other but also being swallowed up by the isle.

There can only be one winner! So come out and cheer on your favorite candidates as they fight for your vote in the 2016 Gubernatorial Election!

[[Additional setting info will be posted below. Feel free to post Polyvores/outfits/etc. This shindig will be held on RDI in The Docks room. Setting is Overlord Isle.]]

RhyDin Election / 2015 Gubernatorial Election Cage Match
« on: September 28, 2015, 12:51:11 PM »

Friday, October 2nd, kick off the election weekend with the
cage match to end all cage matches! Our gubernatorial
candidates will face one another in a duel of fists show down
at 9:00 PM by the Eastern Clock. Venture down to the depths
 of the Annex for a night of violence and politics! Rumor has it,
the evening will feature a special guest commentator as well!

Last year, we brought you The Crucible, Kruger's three level
closed cage. This year we're going for something a little less
grandiose but a whole lot more dangerous.

From afar, the octagon seems like a fairly standard eight sided
ring. Raised four feet off the ground, the ring is 32 feet across
to give fighters space to move without allowing them too
much leeway. The ten foot tall sides are topped with a roll of
barbed wire. Upon closer inspection, the walls themselves are
wound with enough razor wire that it isn't advised to spend
too much time up against the fence. Unless you're in to that
sort of thing. Then have fun! Each post of the ring includes
vents that spew smoke and the occasional jet of flames to add
to the ambiance. Watch your eyebrows!

Only one will emerge the winner so come out to cheer for your
favorite candidates as they fight for your vote!

After giving the candidates some thought, Claire threw a little bit of her t-shirt budget toward a green show of support for the incumbent Governor. They were available for free at the Red Dragon Inn in varying sizes.
