Lizard Stone 2007
Once every year our Czech colleagues have a weekend event and invite us to join them. This year's event was called "Lizard Stone" and was in Rejštejn. We stayed in the Cabin's from the Pension Klášterský Mlýn.
On saturday we had a full day game searching for the mythical Lizard Stone. It was described to us as:
"The myth of a mysterious gem, called the Lizard Stone has spread in numerous modifications into neigboring countries and exists in many variants today. The oldest documented version talks about an immense gemstone of unfathomable value, which was deposited in a well guarded place in Rejstejn. According to later sources the stone was transported during the departure of the Kints from Rejstejn, after the last great ceremony. It's alleged that this ceremony is related to the SuSuSu festivity, still held regularly today. The reader can find more detailed information about this important event in the "Treatise on Lands of Wirm" by prof. Verdal."
We've been walking for over 12 hours through the forests, over some meadows - and quite often up and down the hills.
We met a lot of interesting characters including a dragon, a ranger, some sages and a lumberjack and collected various items and lots of information about the Lizard stone.
It was a really long day and I really enjoyed the sunset near Castle Kašperk.
Once we had everything together and reached the final place in the night, we found the melody needed for the ceremony that is needed for the Sususu festival.
The role play ended with a big party and some fireworks.
A really fun day - thanks to all that organised it!
