The idea so far. It's basicly for everyone that is not Ultimate Swordfighter or Van Gogh. Basicly what I'm aiming for is a tournament where people can win a familiar(asking OM about this as we speak) without having to be awesome at one thing but all round ok. I'm thinking of having multiple tasks eg. sailiing competiton with a point basis, a sf competition where the further you get the more points you get, and in the end the person with the most points wins the familiar also I'm thinking of having a prize for each event.

Please help by giving me suggestions.

You should start by reading this thread. It offers excellent advice for new event runners. Ask Uncle Apollo is another great thread for event advice.

If this is your first supported event, no matter how brilliant the event is, we're not going to give you a familiar or a pile of rare furniture. The most likely prizes for a first-time event runner are along the lines of common trinkets or standard renames for ships you are providing as prizes.

The competitions have had many events (often with familiars) with the winner being based on best overall performance.

The final event in the olympics for example had a familiar for the best overall performance in everyone of the duty and crafting puzzles.

If you are planning on entering however expect to need an incredible in each event to have a chance of winning.
