An RPG Readathon Experience
January 5th - 25th 2020
A large, scaly, probably evil, Dragon has invaded the northern reaches of the kingdom you reside in. Oh no! The king quite enjoys his vacations to that region, so he has decided to try and deal with the beast. He's offering quite a large reward to whoever manages to shoo the dragon away, either the Knights of the Kingdom or the Mages of the Guild. However, in order to cut down on the casualties of taxpayers, the king only wants to send the most prepared group! Pick a side then spend three weeks training by completing Reading Challenge Quests to support your team! At the end of the third week, the King will evaluate which team has trained the hardest and have them go defeat the Dragon!

The Two Teams
Mages of the Guild
The Mage's Guild, led by High Enchantress Ellie, has been the largest magical group in the kingdom for centuries. Where they were once a dominion of magical power, they now spend their time learning spells that will bring food to them in bed without having to get up. Maybe it's time to relearn the roots of magic and whip the mages into shape so they can reclaim their renown with the Kingdom?
Knights of the Kingdom
The Kingdom's Knights, led by Sir Chris the Dullheaded, haven't been doing too much defending these last few decades. The Kingdom has been peacefully united under the King, so the Knights spend most of their time playing pranks on each other in the barracks. Perhaps some new blood in their ranks is what they need to get back into fighting shape and regain the honor they once had?

The Group Book
The Guinevere Deception
by Kiersten White
"Princess Guinevere has come to Camelot to wed a stranger: the charismatic King Arthur. With magic clawing at the kingdom’s borders, the great wizard Merlin conjured a solution–send in Guinevere to be Arthur’s wife . . . and his protector from those who want to see the young king’s idyllic city fail. The catch? Guinevere’s real name–and her true identity–is a secret. She is a changeling, a girl who has given up everything to protect Camelot.
To keep Arthur safe, Guinevere must navigate a court in which the old–including Arthur’s own family–demand things continue as they have been, and the new–those drawn by the dream of Camelot–fight for a better way to live. And always, in the green hearts of forests and the black depths of lakes, magic lies in wait to reclaim the land."
