XMAS IN JULY 2017 - July 7th - 24hr grandfrig pilly - TONS of PRIZES

as will be 24 hr NONSTOP pillage on a GRANDFRIG ...

there will be AT LEAST 15 FAMILIARS to win this year!!!!

date is set to start July 7, 2017.. at 10am game time ... and end July 8, 2017.. at 10am game time.. so it should not interfere with any blockades (jobbing offer goes up 9:30am!!)

the format will be generally the SAME as previous years...

Xmas in July 2011
Xmas in July 2012
Xmas in July 2013
Xmas in July 2014
Xmas in July 2015
Xmas in July 2016

we sail nonstop.. get into battles along the way... like a regular pillage.. with 4 main differences....

1) everyone that comes.. will be given a FREE red candycane outfit (red stripeys)

2) we will also have hundreds of SMALL items that will be passed out RANDOMLY as 'stocking stuffers' by the "elves' all day

3) every few minutes.. we will be doing trivia word games, station challenges, and other fun things to win 1 of 400 wrapped presents ... that could be familiars--ships--pets--furniture--OM items--poe--dubs --or other great items ... (check back for the sneak peak later in this same thread)

4) we will be keeping track of duty reports and giving out points based on performance.... with prizes for the overall top 4 scores in EACH station type (so the longer u stay the more points u can rack up.. points do NOT have to be consecutive.. yes you may leave and then come back.. so hop on often)

Points will be given as follows:
2 pts. for each Incredible
1 pt. for each Excellent

***points for gunning station will be scored differently (and will NOT count towards the 'combined overall score') (more information on this later... as we work out the changes to the scoring tool)

SCORING WILL BE AUTOMATED... that means we will only need a momentary pause at each DR to tally..


Top combined OVERALL score (regardless of station(s)) will Win a PLUM-COLORED LE OCTOPUS named Sugarplum!!!!!

Top MALE pirate will win a Green /Tan PARROT FAMILIAR!!
Top FEMALE pirate will win a Red /Tan PARROT FAMILIAR!!

(note: there will be THREE overall winners... so technically one of the winners will be the 2nd place overall for their gender)

the 3 top winners will have a PORTRAIT taken with Santa (peg) titled "Xmas in July 2016 Winners" taken....(a framed copy will be placed in our HALL OF FAME onboard the Event ship for posterity...and each will receive a copy for their portrait page)

The pirate that stays the LONGEST will win a BLACK OCTOPUS named 'Coal'!!! you MUST be onboard when we set sail and can NOT leave the ship for ANY reason (if there is a TIE for longest, we will use an onboard gaming table to determine the winner, ie., each pirate spinning the roulette wheel once and highest number wins! smaller but significant prizes will be given to those that do not win the playoff)
