Diastrophic Change! Island Give Away June 22, 11:59 AM. Updated Prizes!!

We have an island to give away!

Lovely Diastrophe



located in the north west of the Garnet Archipelago! This island has good visitation from the merchant bots, as it is near several uninhabited islands. The fort, like all forts, can buy and sell any commodity. Diastrophe also comes furnished with a ship shoppe, capable of making any kind of ship!

If ye (or someone in yer flag) enjoys running commodities (especially moving sail cloth) for profit, ye've always wanted to see ye name on an island notice board, ye'd lub to make big ships, yer flag does not already hold an island, and yer flag has fame of at least Noted, this is the event for ye!

When: Sunday, June 22, 2008 at 11:59 AM game time (Pacific).

What: 3 round, non-sinking blockade. We will be enforcing ship limits, however.

Rules: For round 1, ye may field 4 sloops at any given time. For round 2, 2 cutters are allowed. Round 3 is just one brig per flag. These ship requirements were used in the Conglin give-away event, and provide a nice variety of navving styles while maintaining a relatively constant staff requirement. Mates fielding more than the alloted amount of ships will receive a warning; if they do not immediately return to port their flag will be disqualified. If two flags seem to be assisting each other on the board, the navvers will be warned. If the collusion continues, both flags will be disqualified. Winners will be based on total points acquired over the three rounds, so if one round goes poorly, yer not sunk yet!

Prizes: Updated! Apollo granted us renames! Yay Apollo!

First Place: An inscribed jeweled north star pin! Also, Polaris will transfer Diastrophe to this flag, with us paying the island transfer fee.
Second Place: This flag gets an inscribed jeweled north star pin and the war frig, Molten Valava, ported at Diastrophe.
Third Place: This flag receives an inscribed jeweled north star pin and the war brig, Hot Valava, ported at Diastrophe.
Fourth Place: This flag receives an inscribed jeweled north star pin and the cutter, Fiery Valava, ported at Diastrophe.


To Enter: Reply to this thread with yer flag name, monarch's name, and list of 4 navvers (+alternates). Navver names may be changed up until 2 hours before the event. Move many sloops (any "sunken" ships may not re-enter the board, but may be replaced by new ships), cutters, and brigs to Diastrophe island. Make sure ye scrounge up stocks for them (good recommended stocks are included in the Conglin event details). Jobber pay may help ye, but note that ye can pretty much staff all ships for all rounds with just 20 or so mates.

Disclaimers: Polaris is not responsible or liable for eruptions of the volcano on Diastrophe or any associated earthquakes. In the event we are blockaded and lose the island before June 22, this event post should be ignored/pointed and laughed at/looked back at wistfully.

I hope to see many flags getting a taste of the fun and excitement of blockading and island ownership! If ye have any questions, feel free to ask here or pm me. Thanke mates!

We'll have several mates on an observation ship to watch for that. If necessary, we can also load up a brig/brigs to sink cheaters off the board. If ye are a member of an island-holding flag or are otherwise not planning on entering, help us police! Please reply here or pm me to volunteer :)

Re: Diastrophic Change! Island Give Away June 22, 11:59 AM

Excellent. We got us a posse. Thanke to all the mates volunteering to police! We have plenty of brigs at Diastrophe, so it looks like we can staff several simultaneously (if more mates continue to volunteer). Hopefully that will dissuade mates from cheating and instead focus on winning within the rules :D

If ye mean "Can we post more than 4 navver names?" The answer is aye, that's what "list of 4 navvers (+ alternates)" means. I strongly encourage mates to post more than 4 names just in case one of their navvers has difficulties during the event.

On a side note, I am very pleased to see the entries so far! Please keep them coming!

Re: Diastrophic Change! Island Give Away June 22, 11:59 AM

The alternatives are your back up. You can use them if one of the 4 you are actually planning on using doesn't show up. Or if 3 show up, I'm guessing you can use 3 alternatives if you have them listed.
As for the balls and rum, it's whatever you think you'll need I guess.
