The Woldhaven Invitational runs over two weekends, with many competitions available on both weekends, allowing for rematches and new chances.  The plot of the event will, however, progress across both weekends without repeating.  The great fun to be had can be captured through photos and photobooks.  The Invitational is always a memorable event.  

All competitors are strongly encouraged to attend an out-of-game meeting at 9am on each Saturday.  Competitors are allowed to check in Friday evening, if they wish.  The in-game action commences at 10am Saturday, and ends Sunday evening at 6pm, with a break for rest on Saturday night from approximately midnight to 8am .  During the day, the Silver Kingdom Renaissance Festival will be open, but at night the Invitational will be restricted to members of the various Realms and Faire staff.  The Competition rules describe everything you need to prepare.

Note:  Although much of the action you will experience during the Games is with and against other competitors, the Games also attract the attention of some unsavory creatures.  It is not unexpected that foul beasts and monsters may prowl the environs at any time of the day or night.  Goblins, orcs, ogres, trolls, and other deadly creatures have been known to visit teh Faire's outskirts, looking for easy prey.  Competitors are encouraged to either take care of any such interlopers themselves, or inform the Arm of Justice if they cannot handle the situation.  Competitors should be warned that if they scout the further reaches of the domain, they may be on their own if they run into trouble.
