The Cardinal's Table : Event+Afterparty

[[mods - This is an IC thing for RPers and Lorehounds, please don't shoot it in the face]]

Well, I suppose it's that time again, fellow pilots. Another one of us crusty 1stGens is celebrating a calendar milestone. Some fellow Imperial loyalists reminded me of the upcoming 10 year mark for my first dip in the Wetgrave, and the discussion turned to throwing a bit of a party to ring in the occasion.

I considered the idea for a while, and thought...
A bombastic NeoCom thread? Nah.
A big gathering/excuse to drink? Meh.
A competition! Bah, ship combat contests are rather passe these days, and I don't like the idea of skilled midshipmen being at risk for the sake of mirth.

But after some pondering, inspiration eventually struck!

I'm pleased to announce,

In Association with EOH
THE CARDINAL'S TABLE - Capsuleer Poker Tournament
31 MAY YC116, 1800 Eve Standard Time

Take on your peers in a free-to-enter tourney, with good ISK on the line!
I will be playing as well (but ineligible for the winnings), bust The Cardinal out for money!

THIRD PLACE: 200 Million ISK

KNOCKOUT PRIZE: 100 Million ISK for eliminating me from the Tourney.

When the Action is settled on the tables, Lady Shalee Lianne has graciously allowed hosting the afterparty at her Grand Cerra Manor on Huola VII [[Channel "Cerra Manor: The Terrace"]] for an evening of revelry and top shelf spirits.

I invite you, pilots, to come and spend an evening out-foxing your opponents with your strategy, daring, and luck at hand!

Please respond to this thread to be processed for our outgoing invitations, which should arrive 3-4 days before the event.

[[Tournament participation obviously requires a free active account at]]

I'll see you at the Tables.

I don't like Poker. I like card games though, just not Poker. But I want to say only one thing...

Card Games on Space Ships! Weee!

Do invite me if you make a Crazy Eights tournament though.

Congratulations Cardinal. Not much of a poker player outside the barracks but I will attend the after party and raise a toast.

Make sure there are more than enough bar stools for the after party.

Congratulations, Cardinal.

I have not gambled in a long while; True Amarr tend to frown on that oh-so-Ni-Kunni tradition of ours. Then again, I was also not very wealthy for most of my life.

I might start again just for you, Cardinal.

It'd be a shame for me not to have an opportunity to take more of Jurou's money.

I'm in.

I would be honored to attend this celebration. 10 years of being a capsuleers is indeed the milestone, moreso because you kept your sanity.

While I won't attend the Poker Tournament, I am interested on how it all plays out and the outcome of it!
