Coconut Sloop Race [October 6th]

When? Any time on October 6th
This is a free foraging day so anybody can take part

I know this is somewhat short notice however I plan on running alot of events so I didn't want it to get drawn out.

Description: Hera is the secret mother of coconuts and is evilly sending her children away to become coconut bras and pina coladas! You must help rescue as many baby coconuts from her as possible.

The race will consist of several spots where you must forage coconuts and then head towards another island to finish.

The race will be from Armstrong to Iocane, where you must forage up at least 69 coconuts on the way. You must buy/bid on something at both the start and finish to mark your times

Prizes: 1st Place: 75k
2nd Place: 40k
3-6th Place: 10k

All places will recieve a Hera egg (Shes giving away even more of her children before they are even born! You see why these poor coconuts need to be saved so desperately?). These will be given to the captains of each ship to be awarded at their discression.

These prizes will be given to the CREW that took part, not the captain. I will distribute PoE in the standard way of 30% towards the captain and then the rest will be an even distribution. So your entries to the wiki page must include the names of those who took part and the time taken.

The wiki page link will be posted here later. If you post the winning time you must officer up one of my alts in the crew to verify the time.

Hope you have fun and any questions please post here

I reserve the right to change any of these event details if I have done something wrong.

Re: Coconut Sloop Race [October 6th]

I've been told that apparently it being a free day doesn't make a difference as you can't get the commodities anyway so you will need the badge im afraid to compete.

Re: Coconut Sloop Race [October 6th]

So the time will be from buying/selling something at the starting island and buying/selling something at the finishing island, as long as you have foraged at least 69 coconuts in between?

Is the crew number limited? i.e. If someone runs out of labour hours can they be replaced with another pirate / and alt of that pirate?

Yes.

No there is no limit on the crew members but of course if you have more crew members there will be more people to share the prize between.

Re: Coconut Sloop Race [October 6th]

What is to keep someone from loading up the coconuts before they set sail?

Vessel Records, you can see that they are brought or foraged from them.

Re: Coconut Sloop Race [October 6th]

Sorry I never got back to you

The ship that we used was on a pirate that left the crew before I was able to get the results checked

Was fun though :)
