StarFest 2010- The Trial of Kraven Bloodthorne

Coming to Starfest 2010: The Trial of Kraven Bloodthorne
It was only a few years ago when Kraven Bloodthorne left Avistrum Academy. He resigned both his position as Professor of Divination and the post of Head of Colubrae House. He left Avistrum Academy at the request of Mordecai Argiletum, to aid another wizarding institution by the name of Timmernak. The school was under seige by the forces of the Dark Witch, Persephone.
Or did he?
Timmernak fell to Persephone’s onslaught and there is evidence that Kraven was actually a double-agent, assisting in it’s destruction.
To make matters worse, Bloodthorne is indicated to be involved in the abduction and possible murders of missing witches and wizards.
Some of these victims are former faculty members of Avistrum Academy.
With the evidence mounting, Senator Oswald Kensington is taking him to trial and is leading the Prosecution.
Kraven’s unlikely defender and attorney is his former rival, Clark Dowling.

Should Kraven Bloodthorne get convicted, he faces a lifetime imprisonment in Alcatraz Wizarding Prison.
Come and watch the trial unfold at Starfest in this unique interactive theatre and film experience!

StarFest 2010 – Tales From Avistrum – Excelsior!!

Are you a fan of Harry Potter? Have you ever wanted to jump into the pages of the books, or step onto the screen with Harry, Ron and Hermione? Avistrum Academy of Sorcery makes that a reality!

Mischief Managed Entertainment proudly presents “Tales from Avistrum,” an interactive theater/film experience for all ages. Starting back at Starcon in 2002 as a Harry Potter fan table, Avistrum has expanded into providing a full weekend experience, including classes to take, Quidditch tournaments to compete in, and the 2nd Annual Triwizard Tournament.

At Starfest 2010, Avistrum has these exciting events planned:

Herbology/Divination class — learn about the magical and medicinal qualities of different teas from around the world with Professor Deserand, and then how to read your tea leaves from Professor Bloodthorne.

Potions/Charms class — Professor Voertigern will instruct how to make a Polychrome Bombard potion, and Professor Kobiyashi will show you how to enchant a vessel to hold it.

4th Annual Starfest Quidditch Tournament — Due to the Muggle Secrecy Act, we cannot play properly on brooms outside, but luckily you can test your Quidditch skills on the PS2! Prizes for the tournament provided by the Cave of the Winds, Barnes & Noble Bookstores and Mischief Managed Entertainment.

Triwizard Tournament — complete all three tasks of the tournament, become Triwizard Champion, and win a weekend pass to NanDesuKan 2010, MileHiCon 42, and Starfest 2011! The first task will be revealed Friday night, but here’s a tip — it will involve your knowledge of Avistrum and it’s many residents. Visit www.avistrum.org to read history, character bios, and more! Register on Friday for your chance to become the Anime, Galactic or Literary Champion! Details about the tournament will be posted soon.

Craft area — create your own Triwizard badge to support your champion, or a Quidditch pennant for your favorite team!

Show poster for MHC 42 — come see the reveal of the official show poster for “Tales from Avistrum: Fall From Grace!”
