Compete against members of the town militia (and other PCs) to accumulate as many points as possible! Targets are placed at 100, 200, 300, 400, and 500ft from the firing line. You have 5 shots. Targets are worth 1, 2, 4, 8, or 12pts based on distance. Each arrow will have distance penalties (per range increment as usual) and needs to hit AC 10. The Heldren militia captain scored 25 points.
Show off your prowess with a blade! These are one-on-one bouts where you target your opponent’s Touch AC. First to achieve 3 touches wins! I'll provide NPC info as needed.
Ride the Bucking Bronco
Try to stay in the saddle of a wild horse until time expires! Participants must make three consecutive Ride DC 15 checks to avoid getting bucked off. Failure means you fall off and must try again. You get three attempts (a maximum of 9 checks). For smaller players, a pig is available.
Show off your hobby! There are two categories, represented by the Craft and Perform skill respectively. Highest result wins. The local seamstress (Craft) scored a 19. The local puppeteer (Perform) scored a 6.
Answer questions about all manner of topics! Players can make a DC 15 Knowledge check for each category (arcana, religion, history, etc). Ten categories total, worth one point each. All can be attempted untrained. Once everything’s been answered, the player with the most correct answers wins. Heldren’s resident smartie-pants scored 6 points.
Pull the other team across the line and into a mud pit! Participants form teams of 3 (NPCs are included if not enough PCs join in the fun) and make opposed STR checks. Low results count as “Aid Other” attempts to boost the highest result. Three consecutive successes means your team wins! I'll provide NPC info if fill-ins are needed.
