RDI Playables / April All Ranks Tournament
« on: April 21, 2009, 08:22:14 PM »
Spring flowers decorated with mini fountains, garden gnomes, forest animals and even miniature tiki bars and huts are to be found in patches around and within the dueling area on the isle this evening. In addition to the usual fare the goblins offer all patrons, this evening they also offer spring theme decorated appetizers and desserts.

RDI Playables / Engagement Party Setting
« on: March 20, 2009, 09:03:53 PM »
Engagement Party Of Taneth and Tormay
hosted by Tara and Topaz

The Great Hall had been decorated, part by hard work, part by the use of magic, in pink and yellow. Pink and Yellow garlands were stung under the ceiling, Pink and yellow standards were placed between tapestries that for the evening had their colors adjusted to reflect the decorating theme. The tables were covered with yellow damask, pink runners and napkins, pink and yellow candle and flower center pieces and small platters of tiny cakes decorated with yellow and pink colored chocolate and icing. Even the upholstered seats and backs of the chairs were covered with pink and yellow patterned brocade.

Guests were greeted by men garbed in yellow tuxedos, handing each a velvet jewelry box, pink to the females, yellow to the males. The inside of the lids of party favor boxes read in gold lettering, ?Engagement Party of Taneth Mercer & Tormay Eludes 20 March 09?. The pink boxes held gold filigree brooches made to sparkle in the light with little pink diamonds. The yellow boxes held gold filigree tie pins decorated with a slightly larger pink diamond each.

An orchestra, the male members wearing yellow suits, the female members wearing pink evening gowns, was set up behind the dance floor. The buffet was laden with delicacies not only from Rhydin but from all over various realms. Waiters and waitresses moved around to keep the buffet stocked with food and drink, to assist the guests with filling plates and glasses, and to remove empties from the tables.

"Lucien picked them all, all I had to do was enjoy all his gifts." Topaz joined Elessaria at the table with a delighted chuckle. "And that was all too easy."

It took her a moment to conentrate on the scenting of samples her friend wanted her to do. There were too many distracting sights to see.

"To try for a few days? Oh this smells so good I almost want to nibble at the paper." She giggled at that. Though she may have tried a nibble had Elessaria not been there to observe the silly notion. "That is a lovely idea. I'm sure it will be perfect, though."

"They all sound lovely." Topaz came out of her reverie over a few sips of tea and few nibbles of her cookie, after having reminded herself od each flower's scentssaria had named.

"The other blooms Lucien gifts me with at special times are Edelweiss and vanilla blossoms." She smiled then at the coincidence. Perhaps there was smething to the color association. "They are both white, too."

"Soft, warm, sensual and maybe even a little mischievious. Though I have absolutely no idea what scent could possibly be termed mischievious." She chuckled softly and leaned over to peer at the pages Elessaria perused for inspiration.

"Oh, you even made tea. How did you know?" She hardly knew where to look first, the room offered so many treasures to be discovered. But the pouring of tea distracted her from looking here and there and she quickly sat down. "Thank you so much, Elessaria. Your shop has wonderful warm and welcoming feel to it, so much more than I imagined a perfumery to be.

"Stephanoitis are blooms Lucien gifts me with. I love their scent and since he told me they are used very much in human wedding arrangements I have added to them the meaning of him seeing me still as his bride." Topaz smiled as she shared that thought with Elessaria. The wave of deep feeling for her mate was not entirely contained by her shields.


"I would wear this very special scent for all the special occassions Lucien and I get to enjoy together." Topaz's excitement matched Elessaria's. "So I'd be in very close proximity to one."

Just as soon as Topaz could she left the Palazzo and headed out to meet with Elessaria. A scent made just for her, one of a kind, besides being a high honor, was something she was very curious about.  What did Elessaria think would fit her? That was the question very much on her mind when she entered the Heart Notes Parfumerie.

"Elessaria, good evening." Topaz greeted her friend with a warm smile and held out both her hands, breathing in the myriad of scents.

Site News / Poll on DoM Champions Tournament
« on: June 05, 2008, 01:50:48 PM »
If the Duel of Magic were to hold a Champions Tournament, would you be most likely to

1. participate as a champion
2. participate as one championed
3. not particpate

In such a tournament the champions would each duel for someone.  The winning champion/s would get a medal but earn the big prize/s for who championed the winner. The list of entrants would read: Champion's name dueling for name.
There would be no restrictions on whom may champion whom, so the pairings could be teacher and apprentice, romantic couple, best buddies, or anything else your imagination can come up with. Due to the nature of that type tournament, registration would close 24 hours prior to the start of the tournament.

RDI Playables / Keeper Tournament
« on: March 18, 2008, 03:13:34 PM »
The goblins of Twilight Isle have been busy over the last week with preparations for tonight's Keeper Tournament. Besides creating the usual treats of cake, pies and ice cream, they also carved chocolate and sugar rocks into bunnies and lambs and chicks and they colored and decorated eggs. After the first few incidents of nearly completely decorated eggs breaking and creating a gooey, sticky mess, they even started boiling said eggs before coloring them. As soon as the spring festival treats were ready they hid them all around the dueling rings for patrons to find or to stumble over on the evening of the tournament. Once they ran out of the better hiding places in clumps of grass, under bushes, whatever tree branches they could reach, under chairs and chaise cussions, they simply placed little nests filled with goodies in depressions in the sand.

! Keeper Tournament !

Artemus has retired his title of Keeper of Earth! The tower may not be without a keeper for long. So this Tuesday, 18 March 2008, at 9 PM EST we will have a tournament for Twilight Isle to pick its new Keeper of Earth.
Eligible are those of rank Enchanter and above. Please send your registration by PM to Duel Azjah.

It has been some time since a Keeper had to retire his title and we had a Keeper Tournament. The goblins are excited about this event and already are busy hiding colorful eggs and other treats on the isle, so everyone coming out to cheer on their favorite caster will have something to do as well.

* Small Print:
[size=9]Participation in a Keeper Tournament will not be considered use of challenge right. However, one who has participated in a Keeper Tournament may not lay challenge to a Keeper within 30 days. This is a compromise between not counting Tournament seek of a Keeper title as challenge right and not allowing immediate challenge again after participating in seek of the title through Tournament. The exception to this is one of Mage rank participating in the ArchMage Tournament of Challenge. Regardless of the last date a Mage or Mage Emeritus challenged or participated in a Keeper Tournament, they will not be denied entry to the AMT (and vice versa).[/size]

The Isle will be open the evening of Christmas Day. A present awaits each and everyone who will come to the Isle that evening. The goblins are preparing a feast befitting the Holiday. Dueling for candy canes will continue until the candy canes are gone.
