We hope to offer a place for everyone regardless of race or kingdom to enjoy a delicious brew ,and relax amongst countless flowers while their take a reprieve on there destined journey across the continent amongst the Pilgrims road!

The tavern is located in the grasslands of Borderweall ,but is open for everyone's use!

The Free Mann Tavern on (NA-E) goals are very simple!

As always the first and foremost goal is to provide the best brew in the land. Our love for alchohol runs as deep as elyrian theory crafting ,and as long as the desert runs!

To have Daily, Weekly ,and Monthly events held by tavern staff and offer the ability for people to hold their own events with no costs renting out the tavern! Think you have a good idea for a concert? Or a Great idea for a tournament? Or you want to do a cooking competition? All you have to do is provide the materials ,and the prizes ,and the people to run the event! Holding it at the tavern is absolutely, and will always be FREE!

Speaking of the poppies! We plan to hold a section of the land ,and reserve it for a graveyard with a groundskeeper to keep vigil over the area. The undying poppies will stand as an eternal memorial for the adventurers who were lost in game ,and in real life ,and with many who currently have gravestones in their inventory ,and are unsure what to do with it we offer you a reserved spot to place down your stone absolutely free to honor the ones you loved ,and have lost in life. Or if you just want to make a funny one you can do that too!

Some of the future goals for the tavern will be

To establish a market in the road junction it sits on with merchants setting up stalls to sell their wares.

Setting up a Colosseum ,and jousting area for future dueling tournaments that will include Archery, Jousting Melee's ,and brawls with so much more in line. If it can be thought of we will do it!

To have future blacksmiths ,and tailors build near the tavern to work on repairing wagons ,carriages, and adventurers clothes, weapons ,and armour.

The legendary tavern will accept adventurers ,and have many questlines that will be Rp based around the tavern ,and within the area.

Poppies can be used for a lot of things! The problem is we don't know every use for them! Could they be used for health recovery items? Or perhaps a better beer? We are always looking for fellow alchemists who wish to study this great flower ,and we have much research material you can use.

What is a Tavern without any Dice or Cards?! Gambling ,and Weekly card tournaments will always hold a home deep into our hearts ,and sometimes even deeper in our wallets!

There is quite a bit more to say ,but--------------

TAVERN LORE

For as long as anyone can remember and, indeed, far further back into Elyria's history than that, the Pilgrimage of Renewal has been a common fixture in the lives of nearly every mann from every tribe. Whether it is simply witnessing the spectacle of countless pilgrims making their way across the continent to mark the Cardinal Miracle, or donning the pilgrim's garb and setting off on the trek themselves, the event marks at least one milestone in everyone's life. However, as the passage of time marches on, those who hold the occasion dear have come to wonder if Elyrians have lost sight of the ritual's meaning. Despite commemorating a moment in their shared history that could have ended in the literal starvation and destruction of Mannkind, many have come to see the event as little more than marking a time when the weather is always good and the living is easier.

This is perhaps most obvious when one witnesses the practice of the Flower Festival, most commonly observed in Neran territories, in the hopes of being associated with the Virtori faith's Festival of Virtue. The flower festival is most famously observed by the proprietors of the Free Mann tavern. Originally built by Urstan Thewes nearly two centuries ago, the Free Mann was the first standing structure of its settlement. The legend says that Urstan had given up the pilgrimage part way through, fed up with the tortuous plodding march across the landscape and injured from a fall that left him at the bottom a hill in a field of flowers, the seeds from his own bag of Cardinal Poppies now spilled into the dirt between them, he vowed he'd never march anywhere again and set to building. He had a plan to thrive and he wanted to use the pilgrimage to do it.

He built the Free Mann tavern as a trading post at first, including a stable able to house wagons and their teams. He expected that the pilgrimage and similar practices would bring travelers in need of rest and resupply but, to his dismay, pilgrims didn't ask for much and traders were interested in major hubs of commerce that could afford to buy more of their wares. His drinks went unsold and his foodstuffs moldered in storage, but behind the tavern the field of flowers, now streaked red with the Cardinal Poppies he himself had spilled, thrived as the spoiled goods he threw out enriched the soil. They say the sight of such colorful blooms inspired him and showed him a way to bring people to him, instead of breaking his vow and setting off somewhere new.

So he built a large outdoor stage, broke a trail that went around the hill instead of over it, and started posting signs along the route extolling travelers to see the wonder of the flowers. In a stroke of genius, his signs also offered free water to weary travelers and their animals. Whenever a traveler would come, Urstan Thewes (and later, his employees) would perform a jaunty dance and sing about the miraculous flowers. Over time, the silly tavern in the middle of nowhere became a curiosity.

When Urstan died, he left the tavern to his oldest employee, a pilgrim who, like Urstan, had quit the pilgrimage route and decided to stay. The new owner gave the tavern its name, finally giving the little stop off the name the Free Mann in reference to Urstan's defiant choice to "split from the herd." Likewise, it was the tavern's second proprietor who first commemorated the event of "their own Cardinal Miracle" by promoting a "flower festival" to be held at the tavern, beginning with the appearance of the spring after Longest Night and lasting for as long as the flowers bloomed. (which could be up to two years, in some cases!)

The flower festival itself was, and remains, nothing but a thinly veiled party; a revelry involving more wine and song than flowers or commemoration. When the next pilgrimage began, the pilgrims on the route found themselves walking through the festival and many more were attracted to spend from the meager collection of coin they brought with them on their supposedly austere journey. By the time of the following Pilgrimage of Renewal, the festival was infamous and the little curiosity on the plains became the reason many young "pilgrims" took it upon themselves to don the pilgrim's hat and gloves and make their way across the land.

Others would try to replicate this tactic on their own legs of the pilgrims' path, giving rise to the flower festivals Elyrians can find even today. It's largely agreed that none, as yet, have ever come to rival the fame or infamy of the flower festival at the Free Mann. Theologians, philosophers, and historians all lament this practice as "diluting the meaning of the Cardinal Miracle," but business is always good at the Free Mann, and the practice seems unlikely to end.

It's a great time to be had for all!

(With many avenues to arrive to the event whether by ship or horse. The town of the Free Oasis is not a hard one to find in the desert neither is to far to walk. Located somewhat Centrally on the map.)

The Five Promises

There are five things I promise if it's within my power to do so ,and game mechanics permit it so to everyone for the tournament.

1) Whatching the Tournament will be Free.

2) Participating in the Tournament will be Free.

3) Everyone no matter noble or peasant is allowed to participate. To find the world's strongest you cant just select from a small group. You select from the world.

4) All Kingdoms ,and All Races are Welcome to Participate ,and Whatch. Whatever Creed or alignment you may have if you dont cause trouble your all welcome to the event.

5) No taxes. Let Trade run through. You may have to write your name down on a paper to set up a stall ,but it's just for organizing.. It wont cost you a single gold piece. Let trade run through un-hindered.

You should never be taxed for just simply entering the lands ,and you should not be taxed for trading within them.

You may ask. How will you profit? It's not a matter about profit for me ,but this could be the starting... The starting of your Legend. Let's make this the best tournament the world ,and You will be what makes it memorable for people.

What to look forward with the Tournament.



The Fight. The big event will be a spectacle to behold all across the continent. With many sell-swords looking to make there name or prestigious knights looking to win glory for there family. Everyone is welcome to participate from beggar to noble! When looking for the strongest within the world you cannot exclude any group in your search.


Gambling. Gambling is a must in any big arena action. We will be hiring a gambling group dedicated to administer ,and payout all bets within the tournament grounds.


Catering. For the Tournament we will host ,and cater the event massive kegs containing the world renowned Neran whiskey ,and agave spirits from the world renowned legendary taverns. As well as featuring many brewers, chefs, and caterers who wish to promote there wares in the time of the event! If you have a brew or special dish! This is the place to become well known!


Fairness. Each event will be held to allow every kingdom a fair shake at the tournament. We will ask every king in the future to nominate a referee of there choosing that will watch each tournament bout to make sure all kingdoms are represented fairly.


Dedication. Due to the nature of the event we will have dedicated healers ,Weapon smiths ,and Armour smiths ready to repair combatants gear before going in while keeping them alive ,and ready for there next fight.


Event announcers. During the event we will have multiple announcers throughout each bout that will announce each opponent in the fashion they want to be known for before the fight ,and will give commentary through streaming ,but keep to the aspect of roleplay in game. The choice whether to whatch the event announcers stream commentary or simply whatch the roleplay in game is yours!

Role-play This will be introduced heavily within this event when announcing opponents ,and announcing winners for each fight. We look forward to making this tournament very role play friendly to allow people who want to tell there stories or make there mark on the event in there own ways a chance to do so. (Needless to say.. The security arent role-playing be careful on your crimes if you choose to commit any.)


Admissions... Absolutely Free!


Security. Security will be provided for the event ,and will overwhatch any crime that may occur during the event period. We will insure all roads leading to the event within the county watched ,and patrolled.


How will the tournament be run a few ideas?

  • Traditional 1 v 1 single elimination bracket tournament

  • Traditional 2 v 2 single elimination bracket tournament (If you want to participate solo you can)

  • Five Arenas Entry.


Here's a little about each idea.

Traditional 1 v 1. In Traditional 1 v 1 combatants will sign up ,and be randomized in a bracket list that will be used for the rest of the tournament. The 1 v 1 tournament will announce combatants on both sides before the battle ,and upon defeating the opponent the victor will advance in the bracket while the loser is removed. It will be a single elimination tournament. Every move counts.

Traditional 2 v 2 Tournaments will be held very similar to the 1 v 1 tournament. While just adding another person. Solo teams are permitted however ,but not recommended.

The Five Arenas Four arenas will be placed next to the Tournament of champions arena ,and will represent each kingdom. With each kingdom separated into a different pod combatants will sign up in a 1 v 1 bracket style tournament within the kingdom they most closely identify with. Doing this will find the six strongest fighters from each kingdom that will participate in the Tournament of champions main event. With each kingdom having it's strongest champions fighting for it's glory it will certainly be a tournament to go down in the history books!


Poisons will be strictly banned from this venue. If found to be using poison the offender will be tied up to a post ,and will be lit on fire with daemon pitch at night to continue our traditional Smore making contest.You have been warned

Cheaters Will have a much worse fate then the poisoners. Not even once folks.

Also announcing smore making contests during the night when the tournament ends with some fun prizes involved if smores are unable to be made i'm sure we can just turn it into a fun cooking feast for all as the tournament ends.

All Weapons ,and Armour will be brought by the combatant. If you need a weapon to borrow the arena will have spares available for combatants to use.

These are only some ideas for now. What I want to know the most is..

What do you want to see?


A big part about this post is I want to know what the people want.

So i'm asking in detail what you would like to see in the future Tournament of Champions event?

Multiple contests Archery, Jousting, Life skills?

Free Armour Catapults Cannons? (Similar to a t-shirt cannon)

Bloodbaths with the worlds most ravenous beasts?!

A high-stakes Chess match?!?

The Tournament of Champions may mainly be revolved around the Melee event ,but it does not have to be the only thing it has.

There are many skills out there worthy of finding Champions for.

Please detail any ,and all suggestions you might have! There are no bad suggestions. Believe me even deadly musical chairs as fun side game can be a thing. Or a battle of the bards.

What makes the Tournament of Champions fun is your inspiration ,and ideas!
