I should post that we jokingly invented a new Swallowtail Festival event in the aftermath of the Rise of the Runelord campaign.
We called it "The Paladin's Path." Its a race for kids to follow the path taken by Rikert the day the giants attacked Sandpoint. The first to follow the long route from The Rusty Dragon Inn up to the north gate and back down through and crossing the bridge wins. The prize is a small stuffed animal of a warhorse.
The idea came about as we gave the player that played Rikert in the RotRL game a hard time about getting back to his horse Hickory who had been stabled in Sandpoint for multiple weeks in our new campaign.
Ah, yes. Poor Rikert and his long run (in plate armor no less) to the far gate of Sandpoint and back trying to keep up with the attacking dragon and giants. I think his blisters had blisters!
I found the naming of the new event very funny when Lint and Useplanb told me last week.
It seems highly appropriate and fits with the themes of the Swallowtail Festival.
