Of course, the events are open to anyone and everyone who wants to participate and below are just a few of the ideas we are working on. Be prepared for things to change as our creative juices flow! Feel free to contribute ideas and get involved. All help is appreciated. A date has not yet been decided upon but we are aiming for the middle - end of August.

Do you have a particular preference for an event or anything?

But that is very kind of you! Thanks

I think this is a great idea! However, if the goal is to attract non-subscribing pirates to the sub ocean, the sloop race (idea 2) might not work out since (if I understand correctly) a non-subbed player cannot hold the rank necessary to sail a ship. Just something to think about. If I'm wrong then ignore me, I'm from a dub ocean :P

No you are right, that didn't even cross my mind.

If there was pre-registered interest we could set up the teams in a way that we have dub ocean members with sub members. So you aren't all stranded at shore!

Ahhh ahem...

Bunny brings up a good point. I still love the sloop race idea so maybe we can set up a team with a subscriber on and give an order to nav. Does an order work on a non subed pirate?

How about a "build up your stat" race - preregister before the "race" to verify novice/able standings in whatever duty puzzle it should be in (or crafting puzzle - if it's free for all to play that day), announce "go", and in x number of hours, whoever sends a tell to the host stating they are at the highest stat first, wins by the ending time.)

(I'm pretty sure my explanation is not worded clearly, but similar events to this have run in the past.)

Nice idea, i'll play around with the wording and add it to the shortlist under your name.

Thanks!

The stat race is nice. Tho I know that I have a pirate on all oceans and the stats are not all at novice/able.

I guess a doub ocean pirate could create a new pirate and play.

A lot of these have to go on the honor system. I would hope pirates from Cerulean that were sub'd, and or had the means to sub would give those that don't a chance.

Another idea is to hold private tournies - on the respective free day - for a chance to win some sub time.

I'd be up for pulling from a hat for a doub ocean pirate to get a month of free sub time.

If we get enough doub pirates to participate, I don't mind donating more time.

no need to credit me - if it makes sense to you, you go for it!
Here's one previously run crafting "bake off" like it
And one when blacksmithing was introduced (this one is worded very well I think)

*edit--- Seatexan makes a good point though - I had not considered the alt-ability.... maybe not a great idea? But then, many of these events could be abused that way too-- guess we'd just have take it on good faith.

*edit again --- and Seatexan mentions tournies--- Galene ran some "random drawing tournies" that awarded entrants purely on luck with the tourney board placement: Galene's Blind Date

Just food for thought

All ticket holders will enter the unrated tournament. You do not have to actually play the tournament out. We're only interested in the randomly generated list populated when the tournament starts.


Ah! Brilliant! much better than pulling from a hat. And they have to get on Cerulean to enter! Woot Woot!

We have another idea , so waiting for feedback . Going to start working on the events in the coming days , and need ways to make events more assessable to the ocean. Also a way to advertise the events without being highly annoying .

Summer Events
(XXXXX ART-WORK XXXXXX)


Ahoy ,

This is your chance to create and immortalize the perfect or not so perfect Love story .

Each mini event will lead onto the next chapter of the story . The winner of page one will dictate what page two and three will involve and so forth and so forth .

The main bulk of the events will be artwork ,with some music and design challenges thrown in to the mix .

Subscription's will be the main prize along with pieces of eight .All prizes are collectable from Cerulean Ocean .

You can create the artwork however you wish , clip art , hand drawn, sculptures , computer programs, art packages and anything else you can think of .

>2nd place
*One month of subscription (XXX) Pieces of eight
>3rd place
*(XXX) Pieces of eight

Second challenge


Theme song



Everyone love's a good sing-along . Pick a song that you think would be a great opening . Any thing you wish , you could even link it with challenge one .

You can just put the title and singer/band , or a link to youtube or even make ye own music .



Prizes
