cast role

PRIZES for: Sole Survivor (Lord or Lady of the Damned), Best Costume, Best 
Role-playing, Arts, Archery, and Combat Tourneys, Games, and overall best

VOLUNTEERS: Needed for set-up, tear-down, marshaling, judging, goblin-
mistress, and cast members! 

THE STORY: It's the Day of the Dead, time again for the Village of the Damned 
to select its Lord. According to custom, all contenders enter the contest with 
a sword, three coins, and two resurrections. They pay for what aid they need, 
enter the maze to combat one another and the maze monsters. They may adventure 
alone or in groups--but only one will win.

RULES: 
Each combatant has Shinai-legal combat garb, one shinai, 3 coins, and 3 
"lives".

No combat is permitted outside the maze. 

Characters:
The Healer performs 2 resurrections each and will heal limbs for 1 Coin. 
The Mage sells spells for 3 coins.
The Merchant buys weapons for half-price and sells them for the following: 
Swords: 1 coin; Bucklers: 1 coin; Shields: 2 coins; Glaives: 3 coins. 
The Tavern keeper will supply refreshments and information for 1 coin.
The Gambler will dice with you for your coins. 
The Shire Reeve enforces the law. He sends lawbreakers to gaol and
makes his living as best he can (hint, hint). 
The Gypsy Fortune Teller can tell you secrets of the Maze.

In the Maze: 
Combat permitted as per the Adrian Empire Combat Manual. 
You may enter and leave the maze as you wish without crossing walls unless 
you have the appropriate spell or are dead.
You may pick up any equipment or treasure you find in the Maze and use it. 
Some treasure chests are trapped. Please follow ALL directions. 
Only the Ghost and a spell user may pass through walls. The Ghost may pass or 
strike through walls. Any hit sustained by the Ghost will make it dissipate 
for a short period of time before returning. The Maze Monsters guards treasure 
chests. It takes two hits to score one. If killed, another will appear at a 
different treasure chest until the chests are gone. Prisoners of the Maze may 
be rescued, used as lookouts, or open treasure chests. Some have ransoms, 
others are more trouble than they're worth (especially the Thief!).
If you are killed in the maze, you must drop all treasure and equipment 
except your starting weapon, hold your weapon over your head, and proceed 
immediately to the Healer for resurrection (twice, until removed from the 
game).
You may not strike a noncombatant or anyone outside the maze. There will be 
no death from behind. 
Hey, we're dead--but we're honorable.

Spells:
TELEPORT: You may leave the maze or jail, proceed anywhere outside the Maze.
BANISH: You may order an opponent to proceed to any stated location in the 
game except the Maze or gaol.
HOLD: You may "freeze" an opponent, who must remain in place for a count of 
100. While held, the person may not attack or be attacked.
PASS WALL: Allows the user to cross one wall.
HEAL: Allows the user to heal one limb. Can be cast upon another person.
DROP: Order opponent to drop one specific item.
