  • This event predates me, but I asked Baron Sir Waldt von Markheim about this event and I asked why it was called, "Invitational." He said that in the real world there were many "Invitational Events," and that the folks that put this event on simply thought it would increase the appeal. It was never exclusionary because everyone was "invited." ~ Eadwynne of Runedun
