Actually I think it's more like 1PM, assuming BST and PDT are 8 hours apart (as PDT is GMT-7, PST is GMT-8).

OK. tis noon PDT, I'm in Ye Imperial Pint on Winter Soltice,

Well after a fantastic few bouts of drinking and fighting, with a VERY close round of drinks to get to the final, the last pirate standing was the mighty Aiziril, who beat Erimitsu to the best booty share of 2000PoE!

Well done both of them, and many thanks to everyone who took part.

Me and Ruby liked the format, so we may organise a bigger, better planned (!) event soon...

Keep ye posted mateys,

Oneiropoios

Yar, this tourney was great fun, I'd love to do it again. It gives a more balanced feild of players, cos ye don't just get the awesome swordfighters dominating.

Could do with having maybe 32 contestants rather than 16 though, as it was rather quick.

Yar, that last drink was incredibly close. 60 points between the top 3 players.
