And so it ends one month later . This showdown required sections that signed up to make a sectional advertisement. They gave it all they got, proving to WN what goes down in their section. We had a total of 6 submissions, and they did not fail to impress me. So without further or do, here are the reports; and winners of the RPG showdown. First off; thanks to:
-City of Heroes
-Guild Wars Series
For your participation!
Now lets show off the reports:
City of Heroes /City of Villains
Introducing the players of this mighty addictive and competetive game :
Field Operations Captains
WNxAlleybean had been playing City of Heroes for 3 years and still had not gained the highest level a character can get in the game.Level 50.So WNxbigC set up an event called Finally get Alley a d@#& 50 weekend.
The participants included on this were
Porschia Shakti dinged 50...finally
This is a screenie of one of the game events that City of Heroes/Villains have for almost every holiday.This screenie was taken while taking down the giant monster Echoai.
To understand Eve Online is to define the whole space MMO Genre Altogether. This game is an MMO of epic proportions, mass fleets working together for a common goal, not a goal to get a item or special ability, but to fight for the space you and many others think deserve to own, because in this game, owning space ends up becoming profitable, over ICE, ore, or moon mining. In this MMO, you control the future allowing players to own space, pirate, mine, or to simply explore the cosmos as they see fit. And when an alliance of people decides to War on rival systems, the space battles are epic (yes, you can cloak)
We are In Theory, a new corporation created to begin a chapter in history. As a mission running/mining corporation, we will expand by starting main recruitment. Anyone who decides not join us will die. For the longest time, Warrior Nation’s involvement in EVE has spread out into 3 player owned corporations (Guilds, so to speak); One for Pirating in low sec, one for war profiteering, and the last for mining; to create a base of funding and manufacturing of ships. In the mining corp. we perform mining ops where we mine ore rocks out of asteroid belts on a weekly basis.
Taking place 35,000 years in the future, the fictional background story of Eve Online explains that long ago humankind, having used up most of Earth's resources, began colonizing the rest of the Milky Way. Eventually, humans expanded to most of the galaxy. Resources became contested and war broke out. When a natural wormhole was discovered, dozens of colonies were seeded at its other end, in an unexplored galaxy dubbed 'New Eden'. Cut off from Earth and its much-needed supplies, New Eden's colonists starved in the millions. Five known colonies managed to return to prominence, eventually rebuilding society together. These colonies make up the five major empires in Eve: the Amarr Empire, the Gallente Federation, the Minmatar Republic, the Caldari State and the Jove Empire. You can either be immersed into the story of EVE online MMO or create your own story.
If you have ever wanted to fly in space and become a part of something magnificent? Do you ever look at the skies at night and wish you can become a part of that infinite abyss known as space, EVE ONLINE is for you. More than half of our current members can help you steer into the right direction when it comes to the mechanics of game play. I hope that you at least try the trail version and give us a shout that we can help you out.

Guild Wars Series
From the "Guild Wars" Archives...
"Ever needed a true gaming family? Always wanted a gaming guild, that'd welcome you with open arms? Ever needed the last sum of money for the piece of armor you always dreamt of?
Well, let me tell you something - Guildwars is the place to be.
For over 4 years, the Guildwars Section has thrived in all it's glory. Never once has it gone to an extreme low. Always topping the Rollcall charts, always finishing in the top 5. People have come, people have gone, whether we lose one of the biggest characters of our Section, we never let it get us down. "
"The Guildwars Section is known for it's amazing members, and amazing potential in-game, and forum based. Whenever a member is in the need of help, there's always people there to aid, whether it be money problems, or simple stuck on a quest, we're always there to help.
We have the most amazing, experienced, helpful leadership! Our wonderful GM; WNxChild, the amazing HG's; WNx Colleen and WNxWinterstorm, and untill recently, WNxMifuyne! Our lovely RG that never let's the place get in a mess; WNxPredator. Last but definetly not least, our spectacular Admin Supports; WNxTiger & WNxUnicorn. We couldn't ask for better leadership."
"We here must also give a worthy mention to our amazing Alliance, lead by LOD (guild) which is lead by the amazing Randy! Possibly one of the best PvE guilds in the whole of GuildWars, they welcomed us with open arms. They even saved a spot for us in their much desired alliance, which means a lot to us!"
Excerpt #1 from the Journal of a Battle Operations Leader, Colleenie Spaz
"It was late into the Season of Phoenix, and the clan and I had intentions on venturing out into the lands of the Underworld. Don’t call me crazy, but, I was rather excited. Don’t get me wrong! Its not every day do I want to go out running endlessly, and fight against beasts that can ultimately end my life. Today was different, we could all feel it. Today was the day we would fight in the Underworld. Word had been put out early in the morning, letting all the members of the clan know of the event that would be going on today. Waiting around in the Clan’s Hall, watching for members to show up and take the Underworld’s challenge. After a while, a few members had showed up, WnxMifuyne, Wnx Agent X, Wnx Esscence, Wnx Dawn, and WnxAllyKabaam! We waited together, having a bit of fun in the process, until a sufficient amount of people had showed up. The final team was: Wnx Mifuyne, Wnx Ariel, Wnx WinterStorm, Wnx Esscence, WnxAllyKabaam, Wnx Catz, and Wnx Culligan man! With determination, we charged into the lands of The Underworld…"
"We made our way to the first person to accept our quest from him. Afterward, we set off to our journey. Halfway through our way to finishing the quest, we had found ourselves lost, being none of the members or I has had any experience in The Underworld. On our way Wnx Catz had to leave us. We had no other option then to continue without her though. Unfortunately we had taken the wrong quest, and proved to be an inconvenience, as other monsters had spawned, as a result. This led to our eventual defeat.This would not be the last of our journey to the Underworld. Another day in the near future we will venture out into the lands, and conquer."
Excerpt #2 from the Journal of a Battle Operations Leader, Colleenie Spaz
"It was such a beautiful day; it was early autumn when the decision to venture out to the Fissure of Woe was made. We only needed eight of us, but more then one group had gone. I had left with seven other members of our clan, to take this adventure out to the Fissure of Woe. WnxSwordFish, Wnx Dawn, Wnx Agent X, WnxTiger, WnxMreSlayer, and WnxIcey were their names. Unfortunately, I had stopped and gotten lost! I know, quite embarrassing for someone of my rank. I was forced to make the decision of going back to the familiar lands of our clan, and form another group. I felt rather bad for having to leave the other group. It would have only made their journey harder, but as they say, the more dangerous the journey, the more exciting the story! "
"When we had finally returned, another group was formed, still anxious to get fully in depth in the Fissure of Woe. Wnx Balagador, WnxWeapon X, WnxCulliganman, WnxFlashback, and some of the Heros, were their names this time around. Shortly after entering the Fissure of Woe, we were met with our match, and quickly fought off the beasts that lay in our way. These lands were familiar to some, but extremely foreign to others, like myself. The ghosts that lurked in these lands had quests and tasks for us to complete, and had rewards for us in the end. The ultimate reward though, was completing them all. We were able to complete seven of the eleven tasks. After returning home, there was word that the preceding group, WnxSwordFish’s group had finished all eleven of the quests! Some hardships had made them falter at some spots, but they completed it. This news brought celebration, as the group rejoiced in their success! Such high hopes brought determination in the ones who have yet to conquer the lands of Fissure of Woe. The other groups that I had joined had gotten us pretty far, but we had yet to fully master all of the tasks. Word had spread that other groups from our clan had been successful. At the end of the day, Wnx Weapon X, Wnx Twentyfirst, WnxThrawn, Wnx Mifuyne, Wnx Stemack, Wnx Joshstargun Wnx Flashback and I wanted to give the Fissure of Woe one last try. We were at a good start, until Wnx Thrawn had to leave us, as he had to get his rest. The seven of us continued on, hoping the absence of one person would not lead us to an unsuccessful ending. We had completed ten of the eleven quests, with much difficulty. The last quest really had us working hard, and a bit worried actually! We had to guide the Griffons back towards where we began, through many enemies. With only one monk, and these Griffons more involved in attacking then their health can support, it was an intricate task. In the end, we were victorious! It was my first time, and many others’s, completing the Fissure of Woe, and we took our reward from the Chest of Woe, the ultimate reward."
"What makes the Guildwars Section better than all the other sections, within WN?
Well that's simple really, excellent leadership, excellent members, excellent numbers, proven by our Rollcall statistics, and excellent Alliance. We excel in all areas!
Below we've put together some opinions from the members theirself about why Guildwars is the best section."
WNxSneakyGnu says: "The people. You will never meet such a great bunch of mongrels in any other section. Even when the game starts to feel a bit thin and you lose interest, you'll still keep coming back. Not because there are periodically exciting new, official in-game events or a sudden influx of new and sweet items, but because whenever you log into the game, wonderful people are there for you to socialize with - always cheerful, fun and down to earth. Accompanied by a kind dedicated team of officers and a hard whip-slinging grandmaster. Those things have made us into a section with a strong and happy Family.. that and the fact that we have the highest amount of ladies than any other section ;-)"
Concerning events... "The events are always original and numerous. There hasn't been a time were there haven't been planned any events, and that is one of the reasons why GW still is a interesting game to play, despite it's 3 years long heritage. Especially the AB, Dodgeball events and the costume contest are worth mentioning. They're all interesting and original and you get a chance to team-up and/or compete with the section members."
---- WNxAllyKabaam says: "We are the best because, no matter what we do, we have a really fun time doing it, even when we fail miserably. We are always there to help each other to lend a hand when having a hard time completing a mission or quest, or to better our playing by having someone come show us the ropes at something such as pvp. I had left the guild and joined others, but then returned. I have not found any other people in this game as friendly and helpful as the people in this section of WN. "
Concerning events... "Events in WN are well planned and there is always plenty of opportunity to participate. I enjoyed UW and FoW the best as even though we failed miserably at UW, we had a ton of fun doing it! FoW was great as we got to do something that a lot of us had not yet had the chance to do. Even when we don’t have something planned, we end up getting together as groups for impromptu events like vanquishing or attempting runs of The Deep or even tea parties in the Guild Hall. The common theme throughout all events though, is FUN!"
---- WNxBladeHunter says: "The environment! The guildwars section has had a very very freindly ever since I joined back in 2007. I've never had any problems in my stay. The Guildwars section is very helpful, very courtious and very constructive!"
---- WNxSwordFishLongspear says: "This section is better than the rest because of its close family-like nature. Members get to know each other quite well, and some even get to the point of calling out each other by first (real) name basis! Member interaction extends beyond game related issues, and people get on instant messengers, Facebook etc to chat about the game, life, school, work, and much more. By being in GWS, you get more than just faceless gaming buddies; you can get a whole new set of friends :-D"
Concerning events... "Most of these events give the guild something to do. Not only do they relieve the monotony (yes, playing Guild Wars as is has the potential to become tedious) of 'regular' gaming, they are officially sanctioned opportunities for otherwise-distant guildies to hang out and have a good time killing monsters or each other! for the matter While turnout has been disappointing on several events, many events have been a tremendous success among participants. For example, the FoW weekend got off to an astronomical start to the point where there were two concurrent groups in FoW at the same time! I thoroughly enjoyed the event because first of all, it allowed me to accomplish something I've wanted to do for all my four years of Guild Wars gaming (counting the Betas). Secondly and most importantly, I got to hang out with a great group of people working at a task for nearly five hours straight. While it was rather tiresome at time, the sense of camaraderie, togetherness, and achievement at the end was more than worth it."
---- WNxJman says: "Being a member of the guild wars section i have seen alot of friends come and go... but thankfully most come and stay If you have ever been apart of the guild wars section; whether it was for a day, month or a year you will have noticed there is no better place to call home. I can say that so definitively because i am currently on my 3rd or 4th LoA and because i'm biased as the previous HGFO - but im still coming back for more after 3 years and if i had a choice i'd never leave. Since i joined Guild Wars back in 05 i have seen 3 long serving majors in total and seen alot of great players who have always been here waiting for me to return yet again. As i was saying earlier - no matter how long or short your stint in the GWS (guid wars series) section - our members treat you like you were already family. No matter what time of day or night - there are always members out there ready to drop what they are doing to help you. We cover the globe like no other section - from east to west, north and south. It very easy to connect to a section when you have members who may not live that far from you creating essetially stronger bonds inside the section. Members write long and dedicated tutorials, builds, competitions and stories for the benefit of the section - all without the need for praise or recognition - myself personally devoting a large amount of time towards stories, banners and guides.
So why wouldn't you be crazy about this section? Perhaps we talk to much, perhaps we share too much of our personal lives with eachother, maybe you don't liked being called by your real name or perhaps you don't feel comfortable with large groups of people ready to help you with any aspect of the game? Yeah thought so - i mean what other reason could you possibly NOT want to be apart of the guild wars family?
Thanks Guild Wars Family for always having a spot spare for me whenever those long study sessions are over makes it nice to know you are always welcomed back. "
---- WNxThrawn says: "Guild Wars Series is better than the other sections because of its strive to be close with each and every member in the section. The game has been on the market for over 3 years, so obviously the new content in the game is running very low. Despite this, there's always contests and other forms of "Get togethers" organised by either 1 of the officers or a member of the guild. People seek out to help each other as much as they can, even if the one helping has done it more than there's hair on his/her head.
We're a close knitted community."
These are just a small few of our brilliant members, and thanks to them for taking the time to write these out! :-)

- Thanks for reading! :-)"
Welcome we are one of the oldest RPG sections and we playNeverwinter Nights .
The game is an RPG that sets in the Forgoten Realm setting (well the original game does). The single player game is really great but the strength of the game is in its Multi player and Toolset. The toolset allows you to create your own game choose your own setting (greyhawk is another well known setting) your own monsters and story. The possibilities are endless…
Our latest event was Dustbone, an old Dracolich guarding a vast hoard of treasure.

Our section is the best!
We have a great and friendly player base that is n00b friendly and give new members a warm welcome so they feel right at home. Some of us live in the other side of this planet yet we feel as close as family and is the sole reason that the majority of our clan are long time members and are all considered friends.
Members included in Writing
WNxMescalino (GM of the section)
What else is there to conclude then that this is THE most fun section of ALL WNx.
While you are all debating about taking over the world we actual TAKE OVER the world.
A world of wonder.
A world of power.
A world full of knowledge.
A world filled with mythical creatures.
A world where dragons, pixies, and orcs work in tandem.
A world beyond imagination itself.
A world of infinite possibilities.
A world where man and beast work as one, become one.
This is the world of Rappelz.
Where your allies become your family.
Where the beasts are your pets.
The epic of the absolute creature has emerged from the darkness.
So, what's keeping you?
The Rappelz section of Warrior Nation can only consider each member in our midst as family.
Offering each clan member the full support of one of the games most elite guilds,
you can honestly say that each member holding our tag will be seen through the server with a grade of respect.
Each member of the Rappelz section is high in pride, dignity, knowledge, and most of all-passion for the game.
The Rappelz Universe consists of many features and lands to explore.
From the lands of shadows to a floating island of angelic light,
You will find in the huge world of Rappelz.
Yet the most diverse and challenging of them all would be that of the Dungeon.
Time Attacks and Sieges galore, the people of Rappelz try their hand
In unison and teamwork in an attempt to conquer the dungeons and slay the array of beasts.
Deadly, and dangerous; yet beautiful, the dungeons face us to be the Rappelz greatest challenge.
As the Rappelz section attempts to keep its name at the top of the list,
We take hand in these Time Attacks and Sieges.
Rushing in through the dungeon portal head on,
We pray for our very lives.
From Screenshot Tournaments, PvP Tournaments, and Battle Arena Ladder Matches
The Rappelz Section Diversifies themselves in as many ways as possible
When it comes to searching for new ways to bring out the fun in the game
And possibly attract new members.
In the past few months we have held contests such as forming teams
Of new characters to see who could get off of Newbie Island first as a team.
We have held PvP Battles and Training in the Arena.
We have had Screenshot Scavenger Hunts.
As well as MANY recruiting Events.
When it comes to Rappelz, we know how to roll mad deep.
We ride our mounts off into the sunset in search of fresh blood
Keeping up morale of the masses is a daunting task
But Warrior Nation knows how to do so with class
We must now depart to carry on our duties for the clan
In so, we bid thee farewell
And hope we see your outline on the horizen in the near future!
Who are we? We're the Warrior Nation Runescape section and a damned good section we are too! We have great members who are all friendly and active both in game and on the forum. Everyone is always willing to help a fellow clan brother and through this great friendships are formed.
Runescape is a massive online game that is Java based developed and run by the company Jagex Ltd with over 15 million active free to play accounts alone. Runescape is based in the fantasy realm of Gielinor and unlike most MMORPGs there is no set path that a player must take throughout the game. Instead they can set their own goals or targets whether it be completing quests or leveling up skills or combat. Players appear as a customisable character which the user may change to their preference. The original Runescape Classic (RSC) was released in 2001 and in 2004 the upgrade of Runescape 2 was released which is the current version of Runescape. However updates are constantly being applied and the most momentous recently was the update of graphics, providing players with full screen and HD.
At the moment, the Runescape section is 9th in the highlights with 41 primaries and 13 secondaries. The section has been around since 30th November 2004 when the section made it out of development and appointed WNxbenthebomb as its first ever Grand Master, to be followed by many other great leaders in the future, along with WNxVincent and WNxArchmage as the very first Honour Guard and Combat Journalist. The Runescape section has an extensive history, right up to 10th October 2007 when our current Grand Master WNxShamanx was promoted.
So of course, this place couldn't be kept running without the great leadership that are around now and so we feel it fitting for them to be introduced to all, starting of course with our Grand Master...
Shaman became our Grand Master just over a year ago following a sectionwide split which ended in many leaving or being Dishonourably Discharged leaving Shaman to pick up the pieces of a divided section which he has done very well, leading us on to be a better section than ever before.
Promoted to the Honour Guard role on 13th June 2007, Bard has been in the section's leadership for nearly a year and a half now. He is a dedicated member of the team and after so long could not be done without.
Phil has been in the section since March 2007 and has been a dedicated member. He is both the Combat Journalist and Battle Ops Honour Guard for the section and writes brilliant reports for both. He has been awarded Ace Reporter for his featured writing.
Our other Royal Guard, WNxScarecrow has been in Warrior Nation since 16th August 2007 and is a keen and active member. He is also WNxFirelord's partner in keeping the forum clutter free and running the way it should.
The nation is getting prepared for another bunch of action,
"We're going underground!" is what they say,
"The mole must go down, it's the evil in the underground!"
WN members bravely picked up their weapons and went straight to fallador park,
they dug a big tunnel and entered the cave...
Last sunday, the clan went for an unofficial event, The Mole!
it started with some members on clanchat beeing bored, and it ended up as an great event!
alot of members joined us!
We went down and killed the mole several times.
even if some members left the others didn't quit, they just went on 'till there was none left.
We had alot of fun, and it was retty cool to have the clan together again for a nice chat.
there was a good communication, so we found the mole very fast and killed it in no time!
Well it looks like this was an very succeeded event, even if it was unofficial!
The fire crackled as flames wildly whipped the air. It was dusk and many eyes of varokian children gathered around the fire to listen to a tale from a visitor. The man had arrived in their city a day earlier seeking refuge from his latest quest.The curious people of Varrok had gathered that night to hear a story from this mysterious man. The fire began to grow into a inferno and the anxiouse crowd drew quiet, the...man began to speak.
There is a beast, deep within the evil realm that consumes the land to the north of your city. This is a magical monster that holds the treasures of many kings but to some is only a visage. This beast is only sought after by the wise....or foolish for if you are unprepared it will kill you with a swift slash of its white metalic talon. The reflection of the dead can be seen in it's jet black hide. The fire breathing from its neck, hot enough to melt the armour off any man. My brothers, our Warrior Nation, we came prepared, for no beast of any strenght could defeat us.
The man stood up pushing his wooden stool back. He casted his weathered hands over the fire, it rose to meet his movements. The fire churned and reaveld a hideouse image of a monster....."Behold the King of Black Dragons!"...the crowd was awstruck as the stared into the flames at the image...
My fellow warriors would plan our attack days ahead. We studied the writings of ancient adventueres who had observed the monster years before our time. We checked our gear 3 maybe even 4 times. Our leader constantly gave orders to be prepared for the worst. When all was ready, our leader stood up and yelled "Line up and file out!" We got into our line and traveled into the barren land of Wilderness. This land, was a evil deseret. Nothing but the zamoraks works lived in it. It was a cold and heartless land but we braved it.
"Soon we came upon the entrance to the lair"
"Get your potions ready boy! Were not coming out until its dead!" our leader yelled. I said a quick pray to Guthix and jumped into the hole quicky avioded the posionus spiders, pulled the lever and teleported. The dust of the filled the air making it impossible to see ahead of us. Quickly I was shoved out of the way by a fellow brother to avoid the massive ball of fire headed my way. I raised to my feet and quickly join into the killing of this evil beast."
"The three head bashed wildly about, casting fire and spells at us. Without care it slammed its talones into the ground in attempt to hit us. in unison were moved about the dragon attacking it."
"The battle drew on for uncountable minuets until finally the last blow hit the King. Out victim had finally fallen. Cheer and joy ran over us as we paraded around the black dragon hide. Its corpse quickly disintegrated into jewels and armour.
We quickly dispersed the wealth and took our places again, waiting in fear for the next King to jump out at us. This magical monster has no end.
Barrow Busters Event!
The town was being haunted by some terrible ghosts,
The strongest warriors runescape has ever known!
The Barrow Brothers.
Everybody in town was scared,
empty streets, darkness, ...
But some people, were not afraid of some ghosts
The BARROW BUSTERS!
Another successful event by WNx Runescape section,
However only 5 people joined, the event turned out to be one of the best events ever.
we did a total of 3 runs smashing and maging all of the 6 barrow brothers.
Nobody got any barrow items, (except for bolt racks).
but we got some nice amount of money and runes!

Members slowly gathered in the town of Yanille, all of which, were dressed as pirates!
Warrior Nation members were flooding into the town ready to sail the blue sea. Once everyone was gathered, we began our walk to Port Khazard, which our old boat with many holes in the hull await. A boat such as this would not last agenced the strong sea, only with a crew such as this could take on this challenge.
They all boarded the ship one after another and waited for departure. As they sailed, the ship began to crumble, filling with water, the sails were being ripped up like paper in the strong wind. The crew went to work, patching the holes with swamp paste, bailing the water from the bottom of the hull, and repairing the nets.
The sea was no match for this crew, the boat, as bad shape as it was in, sailed like new with this crew aboard.
Many trips were taken, many fish were also caught by the crew.
Nice event everyone! We had an awosme turnout! We actualy started the event 1 hour before schedualed because everyone was ready and wanted to go.
The event lasted around 1 hour and 30 min.

There were many battles both won and lost, people fought well for well over 30 minutes, sadly I took no screen shots of the event as I was too busy videoing the entire event.
So, at the bottom of this report there will be a 13minute video of all that happened during the event, this is only a section of it all!
Hope you enjoyed this, thank you again to all who attended and I hope more attend events in the future seeing as we now have 45 Primaries.
It will take a while for youtube to process it, please be patient.
Need to ask Sham about using his Trawler report, but here is the final 2 we mainly need!
The only major Tournament that we have had during the past few month has been the the Castle Wars Tournament held in September, this was a massive hit with the section with many members appearing out to see how they could do when put to the test against other members of the section in a he/she who kills the most wins, below are the standings for the tournament as they were when it finally finished.

Along with this, there was some detailed selection that had to take place in order for the Tournament to being, in this section below is the opening post that resulted in the above Tournament taking place.
Story Behind The Event
The greatest warriors, magicians and rangers of Runescape have gathered at the legendary arena known only as Castle Wars. Members who fight for the two Gods, Saradomin and Zamorak, in this endless war it falls upon you, the members of Warrior Nation armed with only limited supplies to fight for the army of Zamorak in a life or death situation. You must defeat as many Saradomin followers as possible in the time allowed, will you be able to succeed? or will the armies of Saradomin overwhelm you?
This will be a four day tournament, in which will be held once per week. The idea of this will be for the contestants to fight in the same armour specified below. You will be required to have the correct equipment to join in with the event, there cannot be any changes, this allows the tournament to be a fun and fair game. For those of you thinking that the game will only won by the high levels, the reason I selected Castle Wars is because you only need to land the final killing blow in order to score a kill.
Event Time: Saturday 9pm GMT (This will be the set time for the month)
World: 23 (subject to change with the amount of people in the world)
Clan Chat: Butter24 (You must be online 30 minutes before the start)
Plate: Rune Platebody
Legs: Rune Platelegs / Rune Plateskirt
Amulet: Amulet of Glory
Feet: Dragon Boots
Shield: Rune Kiteshield
Weapon: Dragon Longsword
Inventory: Nothing, you may only use items from inside Castle Wars itself
Please note: this is how you inventory must look for this month.
Please note that this is only for the month of August, The items will change from month to month with different things such as: Magic only (fire bolt etc.), Range only (Bone crossbow etc.), comedy (rubber chicken, etc.)
How The Tournament Will Be Judged
The tournament will be judged via me, all contestants will be required to join the same team meaning that the game will be a fair contest with all members have the same opponents. At the end of the game of Castle Wars, you are required to screenshot your kills in the picture and Personal Message them to me. From that I will keep score on the kills that everyone has, and, at the end of the fourth week of the Tournament I will announce the final standings for the event..
This means, you do not need to attend all four weeks of the Tournament, but if you want to win, you will certainly have a better chance if you were to attend all four weeks.
How The Take And Upload A Screenshot
How to take the screen shot for those of you who haven't taken a screen shot before is by pressing the "print screen" button on your keyboard, this is generally on the right hand side. After taking a screen shot, you must then save it to your computer, this is done via "MS Paint" please make sure that you save the screen shot as a ".PNG" file, this will ensure good quality when you upload it, meaning that you will be certain to get your score in to me correctly.
To upload a screen shot please use something like: www.tinypic.com this is a site that I generally use to upload pictures on and it is very simple to use. After you have selected the picture and pressed "Upload Now" you will be given a lot of different codes to highlight and copy, please copy ONLY the one with the code around it.
After this, you will have to PM me the pictures here
What Will The Winners Gain?
The top three people who have killed the most over the four weeks will gain the right to hold the "gold, silver and bronze" tournament tags, these will be held until the end of the next tournament. However, this is subject to change with the introduction of more tournaments when done.

Another Tournament that has been around a while and has been threatening to make a come back is the Scavenger Wars, below is the opening post from WNxShamanx about this tournament:
What is Scavenger Wars?
Scavenger Wars is a monthly contest in which F2p and P2P members can participate in.
What do you do in Scavenger Wars?
Members who would like to participate in scavenger wars will need to sign up on the monthly scavenger wars thrend. People will then be paired up in groups of 3-4 (depending on how many people sign up) and will go on a scavenger hunt for the items of the month.
Examples of items:
Logs (normal - magic)
Runes (air - death)
Ores (copper/tin - rune)
Fish (shrimp - shark)
Each items have a different point value.
Example of point value:
Normal = 5 points
Oak = 10 points
Willow = 20 points
Maple = 40 points
Yew = 80 points
Magic = 160 points
(hint: Would it be the best choice to go for the higher point items? or go for lower point items and get more of them faster? That is for you and your team to plan out (maby give out jobs))
What is the point to Scavenger Wars?
The point of this contest is to get people working togeather to plan out how they will get the most points by the end of the month. Also to have fun!
Are there any rewards?
Of course there are rewards! The team who has the most points gets some runescape cash along with tournament tags!
There is no way for me to make sure you dont buy the items, so im trusting you dont and play fair
You will never know how great something is, until you have seen the worst. The RuneScape section is not shy to say that we have in fact seen near to the worst a section can see. We are not shy to admit this because it has greatly shaped the section into the great and successful section it is today. We have had ups and downs since the section was brought into Warrior Nation, Nov. 30, 2004. That is no typo or false information. The RuneScape section has been around for nearly 5 years, and not once have we fallen into the hands of complete failure or defeat. We continue on, thrive to see better days, keeping in mind who we are, as Warrior Nation members, and complete failure is not an option for us.
One of the closes times that I have seen the section fall into defeat is early in my Warrior Nation life, when the section lost 2 Grand Masters in a matter of 3 days. This was hard for its members, and was obvious when the section started losing members very rapidly. Yet, we did not fall back into development, the members remaining built the section back up, because we knew that there were better days ahead of this great section, and this is not how we would go down, not without a fight. If this is not amazing enough, there was another issue added to the fire, another clan. They fought and fought to see our destruction and collapse as a section. Why? Because they did not like how we ran things? Too many rules? We showed them first hand that we, as Warrior Nation members were too strong to let them sink us any lower. We held strong and victory soon was ours. The section once again began to grow, the leadership was fully rebuilt with talented members and we were strong again.
Ever since then, we have not fallen back or dropped to that chaotic level, because we are stronger than that. We have proved time and time again we can defeat the odds and we will continue to.
Nowadays, you will see the RuneScape sections name in the top largest sections in Warrior Nation, and we are proud to be there with all the fighting we have done to get there.
Why are we the best?
All sections in Warrior Nation are equally important, but none have been through what the RuneScape section has, and is here, at this very day, to write about the success that has come from it.
WE ARE the RuneScape section, and we will continue to live on, and represent Warrior Nation in all that we do, good or bad, hard or easy, it is our duty, our oath, our promise .
Well, the Runescape speaks for itself. We have gone through all the ups and downs, more so than any other section however we are still here fighting strong and will not be going down if ever without a fight, that is who we are. We have the members, we have the events and we certainly have the determination that is required of a section that any willing enthusiastic member would want to join.
If you want a game that is quick to learn but always finding new things to do then Runescape is your place to be. The friendly atmosphere alone will capture you within our section. Many great members first came from the Runescape section and most who leave us for other members come back at one time or another.
Come check in with our leadership and our members for a great time, we are always looking for new members to join the ranks of our team. The leadership will help you in whatever way that they possibly can to aid you in joining us.
Good luck and hope to see you soon.
