Why I Want to Go-Stacked Deck Final Table 1020 and Questing: Wait, did you say Questing?

by Lani "Gwen" Jones

Gambling, amirite? In all seriousness, this weekend’s Stacked Deck Tournament is gonna be a ton of fun. Obviously the top 16 already know what they are “buying into”, but even if you didn’t rank (this year!) it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t come out this Saturday!

Sir Tao wants to make sure that you’re prepped and ready for next year by offering plenty of opportunities to practice your mad gambling skills at the Clontarf Casino. Having spent many a spare moment there (between feast courses, obviously) I know that you will totally have a blast, win or lose. Best case scenario, you earn some mad gold, worse case scenario, you get the gambling experience while boosting the Realms’ economy.

Not a gambler at heart? Still want to earn some gold? That’s ok, the Stacked Deck staff has got you covered there too. Tao needs some help finding lost items, and word on the street is that he’ll pay handsomely for your help if you are willing to aid in his quest.

And of course, no event is complete without food to warm your belly. The Realms is filled with some excellent cooks, and what better way to sample what they have to offer than in a traditional style potluck. To bring it up a notch, bring your best dish and possibly earn fame, glory, and gold if your dish is voted best in class.

There are lots of risky gambles out there, but I guarantee that being a patron at this weekend’s Stacked Tournament isn’t one of them. Hope to see you there!
