Not everything in the world of Ancient Anguish revolves around adventuring.

Sometimes the citizens of AA like to enjoy a friendly game with their peers, and if there's a little cash on the line, so much the better.

A game slate can be purchased from Maigyn in Tantallon. It will give you access to the game line, a place where you can coordinate flag hunts. Flag hunts are events where a player (who also has a game slate, of course) will plant a flag somewhere in an outdoor region of Ancient Anguish. The goal of the players who choose to join the game is to be the first to find this flag.

Why? Because they're the one who gets the reward.

When the flag is being planted, the planter determines what the reward will be. Everyone who then joins the game will have to pay a 10% entry fee based on the reward. If the flag is not found, all of the entry fees will go to the person who planted the flag. If it is found, the person who discovered it gets the reward while everyone else just gets their entry fee back.


Playing the Game



Flag hunting is both very simple and very difficult. When the game is announced to all holders of a game slate, all you need to do is "join flaghunt" and your slate will come to life. When you look at it, it will give you your approximate distance from the flag in stadia. All you have to do is start closing the distance while constantly referring to your slate to make sure you're on track. But the hard part? If the flag is in an area, any place in the area will only give the reading of "Very close!" on your slate. And some people are very, very tricky about where they hide the flags.

Are you more clever than the person who planted the flag? Only one way to find out!
