Arabian Nights


  A R A B I A N   N I G H T S   2 0 1 2 

Moab, Utah

M A Y    1 1 - 1 3,    2 0 1 2

And so it was Written in the
Words of the Sage
that in the Far Southern Lands
a Marvelous Event should occur.
There by the River,
which the Franks call Caerth,
Would Appear the

Marvelous City of Amhar

Its Walls formed of Wind,
its Towers of Sand and Sun.

Long ago a spiteful Djinni drove the City
beneath the sands of the Southern Lands
to Only emerge Once a Year as the
Star Alderbran begins to Set in the Heavens.

For Three Short Days will the City of Amhar
stay above the Sands. Its Gates stand Open to All.
Its Treasures await Those Brave Enough to
Traverse its Wonders.

    

I, Abdul al-Havier,
Guardian of the Secrets of Amhar
Invite you to join me in

. . . The Riding of Red Bridge . . .

on the

11th - 13th of May

as we

  Raise the City of Amhar from the Sands 


A City will need Citizens, and we call
All Fighters, Dancers, Archers, Artisans, and Nobles
to Fill its Empty Streets.

Perhaps, with Your Help,
We can Break the Djinni's Curse
and Return Amhar to the World
of the Living.

But the Djinni is crafty,
and his Servants and Spies are among us.
It is possible that the Servants of the Djinni may win the day,
and Ahmar will Sink beneath the sands once again.

Will you fight for Ahmar
...or betray it to the Djinni?

Each attendee will get to choose whether they are on
the Djinni's side or the City of Ahmar's side.

Victories in Battle, Tournament, or Competition, as well as
Service, Scavenger Hunt activities, and Children's Activities
will all grant Points which the participant can give
to either the City or the Djinni.

The Side with the Most Points will be declared the Winner,
and the Fate of the City will be decided.
