[Mid, finished] Hickory Daiquiri Dock | Beta-Iris | Saturday | 2005.11.19 | 10am PST Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Finished! see Lordkalvan to collect yer prizes

Hickory Daiquiri Dock!

What: Hickory Daiquiri Dock is a PvP event. See details below. Fer those who don't like PvP, please consider showing up to take advantage of the scads of Imperial sloops and cutters that will be spawned.

Where: Start and end on Beta (Midnight); course is on the Beta to Iris route.

Date: Saturday, Nov. 19th

Time: 10am - 1pm Pacific

For whom: All Midnight pirates (with some exceptions, see below)

By whom: Lordkalvan, Slooperman, and his cronies from Water Sleeps flag

Fee: Free!

Prizes:
Four different sloops will each win one of these prizes (see details fer how this is determined).
1. Cutter or 25K shop credit at Revenge of the Ship
2. Sword rack and a small chest
3. 1000 limes
4. 100 fine rum

Details:
Bring yer sloop to Beta and fill it with a PvP crew, then spend as much of the three hour window as ye like attacking other registered sloops on the route Beta to Iris. Preregister by sending an email message to BetaBlast@frontiernet.net with the name of the sloop and the name of one of the people on the team. (Note: that pirate must either own the sloop or be Senior Officer or Captain in his crew. A limited number of sloops will be available to "rent" fer the event if ye put yer alt into one of the Water Sleeps crews.) EDIT: Ye may also preregister by sending me a PM or replying to this thread.

After yer sloop is at Beta, make sure it has at least ten of each of these items in the hold:
wood (the hickory)
rum
limes
sugar cane (the daiquiri)

Ye will also want lots of shot o course, and a map from Beta to Iris. Pre-registration ends at 9:30am Pacific (30 minutes afore the event starts), but ye can register in-game after the judges catch up with all the check-ins (which will likely get ye a late start).

Check-in is from 9:30am to 9:55am. Ye ask to be jobbed to Otherwhen crew (contact any Otherwhen officer online), then announce over Otherwhen crew chat that ye are checking in. Ye will be told to job one of our event judges to yer ship, who will verify that the booty chest is empty and that the hold has at least ten wood, rum, limes, and sugar cane. The judge will then leave so ye have room fer yer seventh crew member if ye want one.

Get yer crew rounded up. At 10am the "starting gun" will be announced over Otherwhen crew chat. Set sail and then start attacking any green or yellow ye can find. Announce yer victim over Otherwhen crew chat, so that we can tell ye if he counts or not (there will be sloops out there not registered in the event - ye can go ahead and PvP them but they are far less likely to have the stuff in their hold that ye need to win).

It's ok to register late and start late. It's ok to port to restock. All entered sloops must be docked back at Beta at 1pm Pacific.

Important: Ye must have won at least three PvP battles against other registered sloops during the three hour window, and ye must have won at least one PvP battle against another registered sloop since the last time ye restocked yer hold. At the end of the event ye must have at least one of each of the key items left in yer hold: wood, rum, limes, sugar cane. Don't divvy the booty chest until after the final judge records the contents.

When ye get tired of PvP, dock and announce over Otherwhen crew chat that ye are ready fer the final judge. Ye will be told who to job to yer sloop. Ye either trade him the deed, or ye crew him and officer him. He inspects the booty chest and checks the timestamp on the last time something went into the hold.

Prizes will be awarded fer EACH of the following:
1. most total of all: wood, rum, limes, sugar cane, shot (any size) in booty chest - Cutter or 25K shop credit at Revenge of the Ship
2. most wood in booty chest - sword rack and a small chest, donated by Shazbot
3. most limes in booty chest - 1000 limes
4. most sugar cane in booty chest - 100 fine rum from Redscarlett's Distilling Stall

To win a prize, the sloop must have won at least THREE pvp battles against other contestants in the event. The sloop must have one at least one of these battles after the last time anything went into the hold.

In the event of a tie, it will be broken by [1] number of Kraken's Blood in the booty chest, [2] number of PvP wins against contestants, [3] number of PvP battles against contestants.

Please note that Beta spawns both wood and cane, and limes can be foraged on nearby islands (Verdant Atoll is 3 leagues away, Iris is 4 leagues away).

There be shops and stalls on Beta willing and able to sell ye rum and shot or even a sloop if ye don't want to bother sailing yers all the way to Sapphire.

On the day of the event, we will make sure there is a generous amount of wood, cane, limes, rum and shot available dockside, but ye will likely find it cheaper to place market bids fer the wood and cane.

A second note: that 300K familiar drinking tourney starts two hours afore this event. Odds are the drinking tourney will last longer than two hours. We will expand the time window to last the either original finish time, "three hours past the time we have at least 2 sloops checked in" and "two hours past the end of the drinking tourney" - whichever is most generous. (and we will hope that any blockades that weekend start much later)

Now to find somebody to help run the event who won't be in the drinking tourney..... ;-)

Um... can ye be a bit more specific there?

The contact fer check-in and last minute registration on the 19th will be Slooperman. (thankee Slooperman!) At the moment there are enough sloops that ye will be able to find targets to PvP, but few enough that ye have a good chance of winning one of the four prizes. The event is a week from tomorrow, and Otherwhen has several sloops fer sale at Beta, and even more fer "rent" (ye put an alt into Otherwhen crew fer the event, and we officer yer alt and let ye borrow a sloop).

K is thousand, so 300k poe is 300,000 poe.

If ye would like to make arrangements fer us to sell ye (at reasonable prices) some of the commods ye will need (limes, cane, wood, rum, shot) please let me know ASAP how much ye need so we can make sure to have it handy on Saturday.

*bump*

tis TODAY. Due to the familiar drinking tourney, Slooperman will be handling in-game registration and check-ins (until such time as LordKalvan passes out under the table).

If ye /who Lordkalvan and it says I'm drinking, then send tells to Slooperman. Or just look fer Slooperman in the first place.

Gluck to all!

EDIT: gah, I washed out of the drinking tourney already! This does mean that I'll be available fer registration and check-in. Since other people who can hold their likker better will be in the tourney longer, we will still extend the window fer PvPing until two hours after the end of the drinking tourney (or three hours after Hickory starts, whichever is longer). Please remember that ye don't have to stay out the entire time. When ye get tired, ye can port, have the final judge verify yer booty chest and cargo, then divvy and go on yer way. We will contact ye later if ye win a prize.
