Come with something dyed Othard Blue or an official FC tabard of the same color to show our server how much we love our community!

6p Azure Day May 2020 Day 1 Commemorative FC Group Screenshot

Gathering begins at an announced location just as the Azure Day Parade March ends. Come join in a big group shot of Azure members, wearing FC colors (Othard Blue) and standing together for one of our famous group shots! This shot may take some time, so we ask that you be prepared to stand in place, put away any minions, and have patience. We try to wait for a blue sky (which doesn't take that long usually) as well. This shot will commemorate our May 2020 Azure Day Weekend's first day. Our commemorative shots are also immortalized into Azure history and are often used in Azure media.

7p Azure Day Blue Bird Auction 

Come on down to the Azure Day Blue Bird "lowballer's" Auction at (location TBA) and join us for rounds of bidding battles and fun, and potentially score amazing deals on great items.

This is one of two auctions taking place this weekend, the other being our Leviathan "highballer's" Action taking place the following day. Bidding will take place in 20k increments.

9p Azure Deluxe Triple Triad Tournament

Finishing off the night, last but not least, is the return of our Azure Deluxe Triple Triad Tournament! This is not your usual tournament, as we use Reverse rules making everyone's weakest cards, strong! That means anyone even with a starter deck has a fighting chance- no skills required!
