Nice event. The post does hurt the eyes though. Could you leave a space between each sub-event?

Re: [Cobalt]Halloween Bash Weekend!

Are flaggies allowed to enter?

I might just show up to win the race and the doubles sailing.

On the topic of doubles sailing, are you allowed to enter solo if you want?

If not, I can find someone suitably 1337 to help.

Phade,

Re: [Cobalt]Halloween Bash Weekend!

Sorry, Dub and thanks for the suggestion. I don't know how to bullet in this new fangled forum type and tables look horrible so I wasn't sure how to make it look good other than color. The spaces really do help though.

Dumb question, but then I'm rather thick:

Which time zone are those times in?

Thank You

Re: [Cobalt]Halloween Bash Weekend!

The easiest way to make sure is to just type /info while you're in-game and compare your current local time to the game time--times given are in Pacific Standard, or Pirate Time.

The events start at 6 pm Alaskan Daylight Time, though.

Re: [Cobalt]Halloween Bash Weekend!

Bump! Changed the color of the post for easier reading and changed some details that weren't clear. Please remember that full rules for events other than the automated tournaments will be given before the start of the event by the person running the event. Also, the auction will include items that even the poorest pirates can bid on as well as the wealthier pirates. Any pirate being bid on holds the right to refuse to do something should it be against the general ToS of Puzzle Pirates. Time for those pirates are three hour blocks. It is up to the pirate and the winner of that pirate to determine how they break up that three hour block.

Re: [Cobalt]Halloween Bash Weekend!

Hey stupid question.
I had planned out a costume, and then the masks were released and basicly ruined it. Is there any way to enter with the origional idea or should I come up with a new one now that I know what the masks look like?

Re: [Cobalt]Halloween Bash Weekend!

We will make exceptions for the masks. Yeah, mine kinda went squat also. But we can figure it out with what it should look like I think.

As for contact names, that's the person in charge of that particular event. Sometimes you will contact them to register, sometimes ye just need to know who is in charge at that time. Watch for broadcasts on the ocean for further information.

Re: [Cobalt]Halloween Bash Weekend!

If you like I can link to Quid Pro Clothes and my costume there as well as wear it (and the mask) to the event so you can see what it looks like without the mask even if I'm wearing it.

Re: [Cobalt]Halloween Bash Weekend!

Quid Pro Clothes has the masks as well on all costumes, from what I saw, so it won't help much.

Re: [Cobalt]Halloween Bash Weekend!

Doing anything at Quid Pro Clothes wouldn't do much where I am concerned because I am not a member of that site nor do I intend to be. Just something I don't want to do, although I think its wonderful there is such a program for those wanting to use it.

I'm sure ye'll do just fine with whatever hat yer using..we'll just use our imaginations to remove the fishface from ye...harr!

Re: [Cobalt]Halloween Bash Weekend!

Ever since I heard that there was going to be a costume contest, I've started preparing for the joyous event.

So I woke up two days ago and logged on, to find that the hats had been altered and were now masks. I was kinda frustrated that they hadn't turned us into zombies like last year, since that would've worked perfectly with my first choice for a grand costume. But "nevermind", I said, and began buying articles for my alternative yet also highly good costume.

I was gathering up some pillage poe today for that last and most important part of the costume, when suddenly everyone turns into green zombies! Imagine my surprise, as I started scurrying about, looking to see if I had enough money to buy the FIRST costume I was planning, as well as hoping to get a portrait of that costume since things were going so great towards its completion. It would've looked great.

So I pillaged like a maniac into the small hours of the night.

Then suddenly, everything changed again.

Differently colored zombies, all with black hair, and it is now impossible to wear hats altogether!

So my question is - What gives? How are we supposed to dress up for the costume contest if we can't wear hats and don't look like anything remotely alive? So basically now I've got about 30k worth of two SEPARATE sets of costumes, neither of which will work.

Please enlighten me, because the confusion is killing me, I don't know what's going to happen with the costume contest and it's kinda depairing that our appearances keep changing every few hours of gameplay. Any ideas? Anything?

Re: [Cobalt]Halloween Bash Weekend!

The Costume Contest will be running as planned, regardless of the releases from Three Rings.

Everyone will be in the same boat regarding the zombie-ness, so no one pirate will have an advantage over another.
I understand that it must be frustrating, especially after spending time and poe on costumes for the contest. I'm really sorry about it. We had no idea when the contest was being planned that Three Rings was going to make us all zombies!

The judges and myself will, of course, take into consideration the hat you had picked for yer outfit. All participants will be given the chance to describe the hat they had planned to wear. Judges will use either their imaginations or the QPC database to put the hat on yer pirate.

I ask that everyone still participate, because I am really looking forward to everyone's costumes! I also ask that everyone have fun, even with this difficulty. That's what we're here for, right! Har!

Actually, some pirates would. There seems to be a bug in the program that causes people to revert to normal condition. There appears to be no straightforward way to reproduce the bug, and yet it still happens. I personally have met three people who have reverted to their normal appearance AND who are planning to participate in the contest. They can wear hats normally too.

Guess it wouldn't be as fair...

Overall, it doesn't really matter.
Those who reverted back did not ask for the bug to happen to them, it seems, since there's not a straightforward way to reproduce it, and it would be unfair to ban them from the contest because of this. However, I will require that they remove their hat so they can be on equal grounds as the zombiefied players.
The physical appearance of the pirate itself will not be consdered, only the costume they choose to wear. I suppose if participants want, the judges can also include hair style into that, because the style of the hair was not changed for the zombie release.

Also as a side note:
Rules for the costume contest and the auction I'm running afterwards will be stated before the event begins. This means you must be there at the scheduled time, or you may miss something important that could cause you to become disqualified! We don't want that!
Any trouble makers that feel the need to behave badly at my two events will meet a swift punishment and will be unable to participate in these events. :)

8 am-Best Boat Contest-Contact=Malamakai-Prize=10k PoE to first place of three categories.-Rules=No fee. Dress your boat up, any size, as creatively as possble. Categories are best Halloween theme, Best use of furniture, Best Potpourri(anything goes). Send a tell to malamakai to register then she will send you a tell to be jobbed onto your boat.


Is this event on a particular ocean, or can I enter my Ice-sloop?

The entire event is on Cobalt, so no, Ice, Midnight, Viridian and Sage do not qualify. Sorry.

Re: [Cobalt]Halloween Bash Weekend!

IF there is absolutely a problem with costumes for this event because of zombiness, I will reschedule this event for Monday or Tuesday when the zombies go away and costumes return.

I am in the same boat, I planned for one costume, we turned green so I planned for another, then we turned to zombies. At this point, I have no idea why the Ringers even brought out the costumes if they didn't intend to let us wear them this weekend. Don't get me wrong, I am having fun with the zombies but this event has been posted for a month and a simple PM to let me know this may not be possible to complete this particular weekend would have allowed for us to replace this event with something else.

It'll be ok, we'll have FUN anyway!

PS. Please do not start a flamewar in this thread. This is the fun thread. :)

I vote yae, absolutely, and yet with a heavy heart since it IS a halloween costume party. We could have it right after midnight tomorrow, just after the zombies disappear. I think the lack of hats has really screwed up the contest most of all, but similarly, the rules of the contest declare that one must dress up as a fictional or real-life character, which kinda conflicts with the blue/purple/whatever skin and that menacing expression (Though I did actually buy a costume for a ZOMBIE character, which I can't use cause of the hats thing ;)). So I think the contest should be moved. Interesting to know how many more people would vote yae for this.
