Magestans! Apologies for the delay in announcing this year’s raffle prizes. Magestry’s annual Winter Party is THIS SATURDAY! And the Raffle Prizes are finally here! But first, a bit about how the raffle works:
Raffle Tickets are $3.00 each or 2 for $5.00, and you will earn one Brownie Point for every dollar you spend whether you win or lose the drawings. You may purchase raffle tickets online or at the party itself. To buy tickets online, go to Magestry.com, press the button labelled “$5 for 2 Tickets,” and select the number of pairs of tickets you would like to purchase.
You can buy tickets online until the party begins (3PM on Saturday, February 16th). After that, you can purchase tickets at the party for the same price by seeing one of the GMs. (We will be able to accept cash, check, or credit.) If you can’t make it to the party but would still like to enter the raffle, you can instruct us as to which lots you would like your tickets to be put into by emailing info@Magestry.com. The drawing will begin around 8:30pm this Saturday, February 16th.
** Multiple Draw Categories**
All of the categories in the raffle will feature multiple drawings! This means that several winners will be drawn from each category. The first winner in each category will get what we have deemed the top prize, and each winner after that will receive prizes in descending order of distinction. For example, the first name drawn in the “Skill Points” category will win 100 skill points(!), while the second name drawn will win 75 skill points; etc. Each person will only be able to win once in each category. We will allow winners to trade their winning prize for a prize of less distinction if they wish. For example, if your name was drawn second in the “See That Glowing?” category, but you would rather have the 4th prize in the category, you may relinquish your 2nd Draw prize and take the 4th draw prize, instead. You may also trade prizes with someone after the party if you and the other person both agree, but you may not trade to end up with 2 prizes from the same category.
We rely on the Raffle to be Magestry’s best fundraiser of the year (The new camp owners more than tripled our event rental fees!), so please dig deep! Now, without further ado, allow us to introduce this year’s Winter Party Raffle prizes!

**Lot 5: Haunted by History**

- -2nd Draw: Righteous Ritual Recipient: Someone(s) from your character’s past had performed a ritual which resulted in the strengthening of the Spirit of one of their descendents. Guess what? That’s you! This prize will remove one Death from your character card and also end any lasting negative effects from previous deaths. Alternately, you may choose to gain a Get Out of Death Free card (even if your character already has one).
- -3rd Draw: Ancestral Spirit Advisor: You come into contact with a departed ancestor who not only knew a lot in life but also has connections to an “Afterlife Realm” and can deliver reliable knowledge on almost any topic (mostly to be used as a Gather Info contact but may be useful in other ways as well).
- -4th Draw: Grade School Rival: Someone from your past comes back into your life. Not necessarily a villain… perhaps a jerk from childhood who was always trying to outdo you. Now they have grown up, but they haven’t changed and are looking to prove they were always better than you.
- -5th Draw: The Scouring of Your Shire: Something from your character’s background was the catalyst for the formation of some adversarial group that, among other aims, want to make your life “diffacult.” Who they are and what scale of trouble they’ll present is yet to be seen.
- -6th Draw: Phenomenal Cosmic Sour: An indentured, powerful being, that must serve a mortal as punishment for some misdeed, has been assigned to serve YOU (for a reason related to your character’s history). The only catch is that this being is lazy and disinterested in helping, so you must do something to “win it over” if it is to be of best use to you.
- -7th Draw: Resistance Ritual Recipient: Someone(s) from your character’s past had performed a ritual which resulted in granting you resistance from one effect of your choosing, as long as that effect is Power Level 5 or lower. (There is no time limit on this prize. Please notify the staff by email after the game that you use it.)
**Lot 6: Boom’s Bags of Bombs and Balms**
- This year’s potion grab bag also features some explosives that Boom Blackgate constructed and then carelessly left unguarded for your character to happen upon. Before each draw, you will get to choose if you want to draw from the Potion Bag (Alchemy and Toxicology items of Grades 6-10) or the Bomb Bag (Single-Use Area-Effect bombs that have effects ranging from raw damage to healing to… who knows?!). All items pulled from either bag will last 3 years before expiring. (If you are not able to be at the party or will not be present for the drawing, we will have someone draw for you.)
- -1st Draw: 8 pulls from the Bags + 1 Bomb of Essence Refreshing (restores all skill slots of grade 9 and lower for everyone in area of effect)
