"Where young homins arrive to join the ranks
Where everywhere are seen, mages and tanks
Lies a structure without a single wall
Wherein begins the greatest journey of all
Homins shall gather to compete with the rest
To seek rewards set aside for the best"

On Sunday at 3pm/1500 EST we will have The Amazing Matis Race meeting at the YRKANIS GAZEBO (answer to above riddle)...

If you have ever read The Da Vinci Code or have seen the television show "The Amazing Race" then this event is something like that.

There are people scattered throughout the land that contain riddles which can be solved to find your path through The Amazing Matis Race. Due to the limitations of the game and our guild, this race will take place in MATIS, and will not expand into other regions. However we may hold similar events in the future contained in other regions.

These people may not be just sitting down and waiting for you, the riddlers can be part of a party hunting, or foraging...

Once a riddle has been solved and you find the next point, you or your party say "We are here part of the amazing race and seek the next riddler" or something to that effect, if you are in the correct area, the riddler will step forward, and give you a simple task to perform. Upon completion of the riddler's task, you give your token of merit from the last station to that riddler to receive your next clue and get your next token.

Anyone wanting to participate can form groups or solo the event, beware some of the riddlers may be in areas where you could have to sneak or fight your way into. We are in process of collecting a prize pool of dappers and items until the event starts, the top 3 teams will each receive a portion of the prize pool.

The prize pool may consist of a couple million dapper, armor sets, weapons, amps, and other things barring what I can collect personally and through donations until then.

The Riddles:

[Yrkanis Gazebo - gfunk - Purple Fung]
where young homins arrive to join the ranks
where everywhere are seen, mages and tanks
lies a structure without a single wall
wherein begins the greatest journey of all
homins shall gather to compete with the rest
to seek rewards set aside for the best

[Davae Stables - Bluelily - Green Mixtexi - Perform this emote. </emote>]
where mektoubs can be quartered and fed
at the place where saga and michelle were wed
and many a homin sent cheers and sobs
nearby can be found the lowest of mobs
past the guards, townsfolk, and gate
the first riddler patiently waits

[Psykopla Knoll - MacktKnife/SquidDNA - Orange Hash Amber - bring an herbivour without the use of force]
beware when seeking to hunt this beast
the foliage around he claims his feast
provoked and he will rouse his crew
you will be safe by sheathing your sword
the riddler nearby shall send you on forward

[The Trove - Perrako/Ravens - Blue Sarina Seeds - Find one person to demonstrate for me the art of the Elders of Atys.]
in a dangerous land where the gingos roam
and many a frippo call this place home
are houses with but one room, no windows or door
where trinkets and treasures are found on the floor
find the houses each with a red top
and there you can find your next place to stop

[Matis Arena - Zara - Prime root Silverweed - 10 q45+ gingo claws]
now sadly here, only ants wage war
long departed is the honour of yore
soon to return with many battles fought
and for this, new heroes are sought
nearby lies a large head some suggest
but inside you will find a warrior rests

[Roots Entrance - gfunk]
after leaving the cool mountain air
to their bountiful cellar did he ere
then light once again he did pursue
and now on their doorstep, he waits for you
along the path reserved for the best
you will find your rewards and conquest

[Mundane tasks]
Name the region and area in which <bossname> resides.
Say the Veni Vidi Vici website address.
Bring someone who can display for me a title of level 100.

Cuttlekin - Matis - Hidden Source
Spurlah - Matis - Heretic's Hovel
Bodokin - Matis - Psykopla Knoll
Doren - Tryker - Winds of Muse
