Canceled due to lack of interest



Introducing BattleShips, exclusive to the Sage Ocean!

The event works as follows...

There are 13 availible spaces, each relating to a "numbered card" (eg Two, Ace, King, etc) from a deck of cards. To enter into the event costs 1 Sloop. Once all spaces are full we shall organise a time to hold the event. During which i will host a heads-up (1v1) poker game, with one of my alternate characters, and play one hand of poker, from this hand we shall find out the winners...

If your "numbered card" comes up on The Flop, then you win a Sloop
If your "numbered card" comes up on The Turn, then you win a War Brig (stocked with 500 medium cannon balls, and 250 fine rum)
If your "numbered card" comes up on The River, then you win a War Frig (stocked with 1000 large cannon balls, and 500 fine rum)

You can however win more than once...

For example if the community cards came AA226, then the person who had Ace would recieve 2 Sloops, the person who had Two would recieve 1 Sloop and 1 War Brig, and the person who had Six would recieve 1 War Frig

No one person is allowed more than 3 "Numbered Cards"

To Reserve your place please post below, your place will be Confirmed once the deeds have been transfered.

You do not have to attend the drawing personally, but i do want a minimum of 4 people to attend for confirmation.

Re: Introducing BattleShips - Win a War Frig

Amazing idea, and I like how you can see the 'draw' happening. I may have to dig out a sloop and have some fun.

Oh, and dont forget the disclaimer, I'll let you find it ;)

Re: Introducing BattleShips - Win a War Frig

It's not surprising that you would like to run this regularly, seeing as it could handily get you 75 doubloons for about 30K (or 75 doubloons at around 400 PoE each).

Indeed not, Parley is parley and events are events. If you had posted on parley, you'd have been flamed and post - off to DJL.
