Miniishadow’s Fight Night Friday

Steam and Discord user Miniishadow created and hosted their own event in The Black Death on the 26th August called Fight Night, the event took place in The Arena in Raven’s Reach, Queen’s Province and lasted almost 2 hours!

When everyone had arrived and was seated in the stands Miniishadow assigned everyone a number and explained the rules of the Fight Night. The brave fighters were called out in pairs to the centre of the arena and only one would leave. Miniishadow shoutcast each fight whilst the crowd cheered on the fighters. A hefty sum of gold was rewarded to the winners provided by Miniishadow themselves!

A huge thank you to Miniishadow from the SIG Team for creating and hosting the Fight Night event, we had great fun taking part and cheering you all on, here’s to the next Fight Night!

  1. It was a great Event and i hope the Community can develop more Events like this. And of course i hope that the BD-Devteam will develop more opportunities to participate in Events (Like npc-driven Events. Maybe Some NPC’s try to conquer an Castle).

    And just a Sidenote: Its Survivethis with a lowercase “t” not SurviveThis 😉 – everyone get this wrong 😀
