The Mists of Pantea
The Festival of the Hunt
The Festival of the Hunt is held every year in Alton. During the festival, monsters are released into controlled areas of the city and contenders from across the realm vie to slay the most and be named ‘Master Hunter’.
Participants fight independently to score the highest amount of points before the end of the time period (2 hours). To enter the hunt, all participants must have a sponsor (usually a local business) vouch for their entry and cover the 250GP entry fee.
Along with the title of Master Hunter, the prize money for winning the Festival of the Hunt is 3000GP and an audience with King Graewyn himself.
