Greetings, defenders everywhere!
You are cordially invited to the 2017 Defender Awards, hosted by the Order of the Grey Wardens. Formerly run by the Founderless Regions Alliance, the Defender Awards are an annual festival where defenders from all across the world come together and celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of the past year. All awards are decided by the defender community at large, and any member of any defender organization is eligible to win awards.
