The Masquerade Ball is an annual event hosted by the Azure Flames, with this being the third year it is hosted.

Bards will be barding away on stage for two and a half hours, while attendees can dance away. 

There are other activities besides just dancing though. The Costume Contest makes a return, as does the Trivia Trials competition. 

There will also be (Tarot) Card Reading, as well as dining for those who are hungry and or thirsty. 

The event will also be photographed by three amazing photographers! Anyone who enters the Costume Competition will receive a photograph, with the other two photographers roaming the estate to capture memories.

The event begins at 5:00 PM (PST) on April 24th and will last for a few hours. 

The location is Goblet, Ward 5 Plot 13, Mateus.

A few of the activities will be held in a Private Chamber room, to help reduce chat flood for them. To find out when and where a specific activity is taking place, please check out their information section.

The Masquerade Ball wouldn't be a ball without dancing! We have chosen a group of bards to play their tunes throughout the night!

There will be enough music for two and a half (2.5) hours of dancing! They will be located on the stage downstairs, and will take turns playing.

The Trivia Trials competition makes its second return to the Masquerade!

This activity will be the only OOC competition during the event, the others will all be done ICly. 

Having a trivia game be held IC means that the player might know the answer, but the character might not. Which makes it difficult to properly play.

Trivia Trials is a quick little competition that tests the player's lore knowledge! Due to the nature of the activity, MSQ spoilers may be present. 

Questions will be themed around the lore of Eorzea and its people, they will not be themed around cutscenes or quests. 

Answering a question correctly will reward you with a Trivia Point. The top 3 finishers at the end will win a prize respectively. 

1st Place - 500,000 Gil

2nd Place - 250,000 Gil

3rd Place - 100,000 Gil

The activity will be held within Private Chamber Room #51

Lupin Teramoix is the activity host.

This activity will take place at 6:30 PM PDT!

Card Reading will be offered throughout the night, up until the last thirty minutes of the Masquerade.

(From 5:10 PM to 7:00 PM PDT!)

Zigovali_Rigovali_2.png

Zigovali Rigovali

Proclaimed by many as the "King of Cards", Zigovali is a master cartomancer, and gladly lends his talent and insight to the art of divination. Reading from the Major Arcana, and drawing upon his vast knowledge of the Twelve and the elements, Zigovali can discern the deepest secrets within the hearts of spoken, and even glimpse the potential of one's own fate! If you yet doubt the art of card-reading, take a seat at Zigovali's table, and be amazed as he opens your eyes to the truth!

Aurelia_Arlys_3_edited.jpg

Aurelia Arlys

She strikes a startling figure with porcelain skin and golden scales, eyes deep pools of midnight. Her nature however is as kind as can be. Often found in the Lavender Beds tending all the flora, she is employed by the Scions of Antiquity as an Oracle, she uses a strange deck of cards to answer questions of those that seek her aide and at times, even makes them a homemade meal should they come to her at her verdant home.

Zigovali will be doing Card Reading in Private Chamber Room #74

Aurelia will be doing Card Reading in Private Chamber Room #72
