The MantleCon event has existed since Saul D’Alessio founded the White Mantle. At first it was to raise morale, but when our beloved Saul D’Alessio passed from this world, it became an event not just of celebration, but of mourning. Time passed, and MantleCon once more became an event of joy and celebration. When our Unseen Lords were in trouble, we opened the event to the public and named it the Mursaat Rally to show our support to the Unseen Ones and our wish to help them recover.
But now that time has passed, just as the time of mourning of Saul has. And now it has been decided to return the name back to MantleCon, but keep it open for all to join!
During this event, instead of just showing our support for our Unseen Lords, we shall show off our wish to know about their ancient enemy, the Seers. This we wish for to know their weakness, their homeland, and their strengths. Know thy enemy so that they can fall harder when they face the wrath of the White Mantle!
And, last but far from least, TO HAVE FUN!
Speech by Gmr Leon
The current leader of the new lore-based guild, The Archivist’s Sanctum [Lore], current moderator of the GWO Lore Forum, and head organizer of the last Mursaat Rally, Gmr Leon will return for a speech on the Unseen Ones and their ancient enemy, the Seers!
History of MantleCon
Justiciar Karuro Silvershot will tell a story about MantleCon’s past. What will he say? What has happened? Find out at MantleCon 1079 AE!
Can’t have the MantleCon without the traditional Costume Contests, now can we? This year the two will be separated for ease of the judgers. Those not participating will be able to continue enjoying the Gambling Tables that will be open.
Prizes Include: White Mantle: Judged by Gmr Leon, Konig Des Todes, and Daniel Frozenwind: 1st Place: Undedicated Mini Jade, Undedicated Mini Mursaat, 15k, and a special appearance in Karuro’s GW comic: Requiem for Sanity. 2nd Place: Undedicated Mini Mursaat, and 10k. 3rd Place: Undedicated Mini Jade, and 5k.

While “Mad King Says” is the most dangerous game in all of Tyria, the game of “Konig Says” is the less generous game in all of Tyria, but is just as fun. There will be specific rules announced at MantleCon. But do not worry; all participating will get their just rewards if they follow the rules.
Redux at the end!
In order to get those of all time areas, at 6:00 PM GMT-6 (10:00 AM GMT+10), we will hold a shorter redux. It will include a second speech by Gmr Leon, another costume contest – Jade Armor themed - and another chance at Gambling, Trivia, and Collectors.

And the unseen!
While the above is what is planned, who knows what will happen unexpectedly at the event!
An event is not an event without gambling so we are sure to have four thirty minute sessions of gambling held by Free Runner [D1], and Kazera Wolfsbane [D2] during the event. Times for the Gambling Tables is mentioned in the above Schedule.
While the Gambling Tables are gambling away, two collectors will be around. Collectors ______ [D1] and Jair of the Forest [D2] will be collecting various trophies from our enemies for Ales, Sweets, and Party Items. So be sure to bring your Decayed Orr Emblems for Ales, Maguuma Manes for Sweets, and Molten Claws for Party Items. The item you turn in will decide what you get as a reward. Need three of said item per minute or point. They will only be collecting for thirty minutes each time. Specific times are stated in the above Schedule.
Sir Jack will be hosting Trivia quizzes in ID2 for prizes. These trivia questions will be based around the Mursaat, White Mantle, Kryta, Seers, Bloodstones, Asura, and general Guild Wars Lore. Times of the quizzes are stated in the above Schedule.
Staff of the Unseen Ones given out!
To all the loyal Unseen Ones fans, a special Staff of the Unseen Ones will be given out to all those who donate 20 points (Drunkard, Party Animal, Sweet Tooth) worth of items to Konig Des Todes. This means: Ales (1/5 points each), Tonics (2 points each), Fireworks (1/3 points each), and sweets (1/2/3 points each). Only 50 staves will be supplied. Each person cannot get more then one staff.

NOTE: Trolls are not welcomed to MantleCon 1079 AE. Be there to support, or just have fun, but don’t come to annoy others – having fun yourself by annoying others counts as trolling! Trolls will suffer the wrath of the Unseen Ones’ agonizing touch. Golems will be deactivated and Yetis and Abyssals will be killed on site. *In earthling tongue, you troll, or use Golem/Yeti/Abyssal tonics, no treats*
