How to Become the Master of Ceremonies

The only way to become the Master of Ceremonies of a Brenner match is to be the holder of the Brenner Bluebook or the Brenner Blackbook for the current match you are in. You then have to trade it to the Herald at (I-7) on Abdhaljs Isle-Purgonorgo. After doing this you may then change the rules for the upcoming match. Upon trading the Brenner book to the Herald, the Herald will tell you that you are now the MC, or Master of Ceremonies, and remind you of until what time you have the island reserved and the level restriction of the match. She will then ask you to set the match rules and begin the proceedings.

Brenner Match Rules

Here we will list a comprehensive list of the rules that can be changed and how each setting will effect the match to come.

Entry Type

Selects the settings for team member distribution. Auto-Balance: Allows the MC to redistribute players, by main job) evenly among the teams, after they have completed temporary entry for one of the two sides. Random Shuffle: Allows the MC to randomly shuffle all the players between the teams, after they have completed temporary entry for on of the two sides. Free: Players are allowed to select the team in which they wish to participate. If one side grows too large, further applications for that team may be denied until the other team's size has increased. Linkshell: This option initiates LS Liga matches and pits linkshell groups against one another. Once the linkshell leader has submitted their entry application, other linkshell members may submit their own. If both linkshell leaders do not agree to the rules set by the MC, the match will not begin. Leaders must signal their agreement if changes are made to the rules by the MC.


If re-entry is not allowed, a player will not be able to reapply for a matc in the event he or she chooses to discharge before or during the match. This could lead to unbalanced teams.
