This wandering NPC can be found in the Baby Spider area of the Hollow Eve festival spider. He first appeared at the Hollow Eve Festival 414 in 2014. Each contest looks to run about 2 (real life) days, with a few hours after the end of each contest before the next one begins.

Ask Golyaem about Contest

For a fee of 5 gold dokora, Golyaem will register your character to participate in a festival-long contest. The contest consists of each character performing various tasks both within and outside the festival. So all the tasks given by the various provincial contacts along with the tasks given by Zasele, Bradyn or Poltu apply to this contest.

Attendant Golyaem beams! "Yes! The contest! I run the contest on behalf of the sponsors. The premise is simple, really. We wish to encourage you to help others, and to provide additional rewards for doing so."

He continues, "To that end, when you register with us for a modest 5 gold fee, I will make a notation in my ledger of all tasks you have completed thus far. You will then have until the end of the contest to complete as many additional tasks as you can. We will award ten points for each type of task you complete, but only once per type. Additionally, we will award a single additional point for every task completed."

He drones on, "For example. If Imaar were to participate and he completed three delivery tasks and two skinning tasks, we would award him with twenty-five points. That's ten points twice -- once for each type -- and five more for the total number of tasks he did during the competition. Any work completed prior to the competition doesn't count, I'm afraid."

He concludes, "If you would like to participate, simply inquire about JOINing. There are prizes, of course. You *must* collect any prizes you have an interest in before I leave. If you delay, the prize is forfeit." He smiles pleasantly.

Ask Golyaem About Prizes

Attendant Golyaem nods. "Those who reach a certain threshold will get their entry fee refunded in full. For each point beyond that threshold, we'll offer an additional prize in the form of coins, gems or other special options. Those with the top five scores overall, who passed the threshold of course, will be given greater awards," he says. "If you fail to meet the threshold, I will refund a portion of your entry fee for participating, but nothing more."

*********************************************************************

Attendant Golyaem smiles and says, "Well done, Mistress [Name]! Your reward is contained within this pouch. Some of them have special things inside, and I had the help of special people stuffing said things within. I make no promises that you'll be able to put things back once you take them out!"

Attendant Golyaem hands you a soft leather pouch with a series of tally marks on it.

Failed to Meet Threshold

(Note: If under 50 points?)

Attendant Golyaem smiles sadly. "I'm sorry, Master [Name], but you failed to reach the threshold for additional prizes. I will, however, refund a portion of your entry fee in gratitude for your participation. I do hope you will compete again in the future for greater rewards!"

Additional Message

After claiming your prize, if you ask him about PRIZE again:
Attendant Golyaem shakes his finger at you. "No no. My notes here clearly say that you've already been paid. Your final score was <amount> when the contest ended. I hope to run another one soon, do keep your eyes out!"

He leans in and whispers, "I may visit outside of these Spiders sometime!"

Ask Golyaem About Join

Attendant Golyaem says, "I just want to be clear that you understand how this works. You will pay a 5 gold entry fee, which may or may not be refunded based on your participation. When you enter, I will make a record of your already-completed tasks -- they are not to be counted in your contest tallies. You then go out and do any tasks for anyone in any province. You must return and ASK me to UPDATE your scores. My records will only include what you make me aware of. If this all sounds ok, just ask me to join again so I can confirm."

Ask him to JOIN a 2nd time and he will collect your 5 gold and confirm you are signed up.
