Carpentry Bake-Off! Saturday 24th January 2009 at 11am - win real life prize or familiar!

What: Old-Style All-On-A-Ship carpentry bake-off
Date: Saturday 24th January
Time: 11am game time (use /info to find out game time)
Who for: All the carpenters on Midnight!
Who by: Apollo / Sun


Here's how it will work.

  • At 11am game time, I will put two event whisks up on the Noticeboard. These appear on the Events tab of the noticeboard at any colonized island.
  • Each event whisk goes to a bake-off ship. You may whisk to either. You do not need to be jobbed into the crew to take part.
  • These two ships will run parallel carpentry bake-offs. If fewer than 120 participants whisk onto the two ships, we will merge onto a single ship for the bake-off.
  • I will broadcast the event if participation is much lower than expected.
  • Each ship will have plenty of stations for the competition puzzle. Find a station as quickly as possible so that you are not hunting for one when we start. There are stations all over the ship, including throughout the main deck, down in the hold, and in the cabins.
  • Stay quiet and do not spam. Keep chat and greetings to tells.
  • I will keep the whisks up on the board for approximately 15 minutes, or until the ships are full, whichever is the earlier. Once the whisks have gone from the noticeboard, entrance to the event is closed. Be careful not to "fall off" the ship. Participants will not be jobbed into the crew to get them back on board.
  • Once the whisking time is over, or when the ships are full, (whichever is the earlier), I will start to give instructions for the bake-off.
  • From this point, spamming or unnecessary chatter will cause you to be planked.
  • Once I have run through the instructions, the bake-off will begin.
  • In these bake-offs, the contest will consist of a single 30-minute puzzling session. We will set sail, engage with another ship, and stay in sea battle for 30 minutes. We will then disengage and return to port.
  • Competitors must be on a carpentry station from the beginning of the puzzling period, and must stay on station throughout the contest, until we reach the island at the end. You may dismiss and re-take the station if you need to, but you may not stay off-station. This includes pirates who disconnect, who will get about one minute to return to station. In order to avoid confusion, anyone remaining off-station after a warning tell will be planked.
  • The duty report at the island (not the one at disengage) defines the winners.
  • For each bake-off ship, a real-life prize will be available as an option on the prize list, as well as a colored familiar, rare furniture and trinkets. There will be 12 prizes offered on each ship. Each of the top 12 finishers on the duty report chooses one prize from the list.
  • Prizewinners must stay on board. If you are not on board for prize distribution, you forfeit your prize, and the next best finisher is added to the list of prizewinners.
  • In-game prizes will be distributed immediately after the bake-off. Winners who select real-life prizes will need to send in a petition to me immediately after the event with a real name and mailing address for the item to be mailed to them.

Prizes
There are 12 prizes available on each ship, and each prizewinner gets one prize and winners will take their pick in order (first place chooses first, followed by second, etc). Note that this means you cannot win a familiar AND a real-life prize!

  • Real life prize*
  • Light green / yellow parrot
  • Sleeping pig or piglet
  • Sleeping tortoise or turtle
  • Spear head rare furniture
  • Ancient pottery rare furniture
  • Yellow lily x 3
  • Purple rose x 3

* The real-life prize is a choice between a tote bag, a mousepad, a mug (various designs), a pack of Y!PP playing cards.

This prize list is per ship, so if the bake-off contestants are all on one ship, just one set of these prizes will be awarded.

Note: If I am running this bake-off on TWO ships, please be patient if there are delays as I give instructions, answer questions, or distribute prizes.

I was looking over the "One month. 186 Familiars" event dates and noticed that "January 24: Team Race, 1st leg (details TBA)" is scheduled on the same day. I was just wondering if you knew whether these two events would conflict on times, since we don't know anything about the race yet. /me really hopes she dosen't have to pick one or the other. :D

As with most other races, I am assuming that there would be a large timespan with which to do it in so you should be fine.

I haven't ever seen a team race spread out over 4 days and we just had a race that could be completed anywhere in a 24 hour span, so I was assuming that this one would be different. I could be wrong, that's why I'm asking. :P
