A festive tournament, exciting puzzles and a mysterious curse lure guests to castle Sturmwacht!
Alva, the new crown prince of Atteron, once again and ceremoniously invites to the Night of Fortune. The lavish masquerade ball is supposed to bring good luck for the new year and delight the fairies and guests alike. This time the festivities will be accompanied by a tournament, where Atteronians and guests can compete in several contests. Thus, in addition to outstanding fighters, the most talented bards, the most skilled magicians, the most eloquent scribes, the most creative cooks and much more will be sought! Dancing also wants to be practiced, minne-bands braided and gifts prepared.But it seems that the competition is not under a good star. Strange things are going on between the walls of castle Sturmwacht. Could it have something to do with the rumors of an ancient curse? And to make matters worse, surprising guests show up.
Enjoy the festive atmosphere of a tournament with all the competitions, dances and games that go with it. But you’re not just a spectator, you’re right in the middle of the adventure, because of course the tournament doesn’t go at all as the Atteronians planned it! Solve challenging puzzles, learn even more about Atteron’s secrets, fight in intense skirmishes and face the challenges of politics and intrigue – and maybe you’ll manage to save castle Sturmwacht from a cruel fate once again!

While both Skargen and Undead Flesh will be present at the event, our NPCs will consist of Atteronians only that occasionally, for certain scenes and fights, will switch between roles. These secondary roles are mainly Skargen and Undead, but can also be monsters, ghosts or other jumper roles we need to fill. That means that every NPC attending should have an Atteron character/outfit at least. Additional outfits are very welcome!
With this, we want to make sure that no one has to sit out in the cold for too long but can instead enrich the immersive world inside the castle walls. Basically, you’ll be playing Atteron 70-80% of the time, and secondary roles the remaining 20-30%.
We will send out a questionnaire before the event to see how many secondary Skargen and Undead will attend. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or the Atteron VBs via Vb.email@example.com with any questions regarding the creation of your Atteron character.
If you want to attend as Skargen or Undead Flesh character only, or as another playerfriendly NPC (e.g. Crimson Sails Company), please contact us beforehand!
The game is played according to the DKWDDK principle, based on the rulebook published in 2022:
Sturmwacht: Cursed Tournament is a PG18 event and a place for adult, dark themes. We want to take you on an immersive rollercoaster ride and also expose you to one or the other fright element. Stay curious!
