Do you remember the good old days of Turmstadt's golden harvests, when you were sent through thickets and underbrush to match your wits with mud puddles and manic marshals? These days are back...with a vengeance!
Turmstadt proudly announces the R³ - Rothenburg Riddle Rampage. We have regrouped and relocated to a campground right next to the beautiful medieval town of "Rothenburg ob der Tauber" in northwestern Bavaria , one of the biggest tourist attractions for the historically inclined (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rothenburg_ob_der_Tauber) . From there, we will hand you a haversack with provisions for the day and send you on a scavenger hunt to complete various cunning puzzles and obscure tasks to win the ultimate prize - namely, to decide what is supposed to happen to Nebelwald's precious banner, which is currently in Turmstadt's possession!
So, put on your hiking boots and robust garb (you will find yourself on an extended walk through the city, though not exactly a forced march), bring sunshade and, should worst come to worst, be prepared for inclement weather, when you will find out what diabolical and fiendish plans the event crew has in store for you... (Those not inclined to take the grand tour will be given tasks to complete on site to support their side.)
On Saturday evening, there will be a great barbecue on the campsite for the survivors to celebrate and revel. Sunday morning will see salvaging teams combing the city for lost participants.
