Beat Cremate With a Stick!

Have you ever thought to yourself, "Gee, Cremate is really annoying/douchy/egotistical/all of the above"? I know I do several times a day. Well, my fellow pirates, it's time to fight back! Pirates Hate Palindromes proudly presents....


At various times during the day on Saturday, July 31, Cremate will be available for wagered stick fights. Here's how it works:

-Cremate will stand on a boat with another member of Crew Snag Answer C. A tournament will be posted saying that Cremate is now ready to fight. Interested applicants should send a /tell to the person standing with Cremate (will be mentioned in the tournament info) asking for a job. Please have DND off.
-Once jobbed, the applicant must deposit 5,000 PoE into the hold of the ship as way of an entry fee. You can enter to fight more than once, but you must deposit the money again. So, if you deposit 10k, that counts as one entry. Depositing 5k and then 5k again will count as two entries. I would recommend you not deposit another entry until after Cremate has beaten you (see rule 4 below).
-Cremate will send a swordfight challenge (please say in vessel chat if you'd like it to be unrated) to each applicant in the order that they deposit money. Cremate will be using a stick, and you must equip a stick as well.

So, what happens if you win?

Most obviously, you win the bragging rights of having beaten Cremate with a stick. You put Cremate in his place! That should shut him up for a while. You will get a shiny medal as proof of your achievements. Also, you will get to choose a trinket from a case full of beachcomber and SMH trinkets (don't worry, we're not talking spell scraps and hemlocks).


Some rules, because hey, we all have them:

1. As mentioned earlier, each deposit into the ship coffers counts as one entry.
2. All deposits into the coffers are final. You will not get your money back.
3. If you equip anything other than a stick and hit the I'm Ready checkmark, Cremate will exit out of the challenge and plank you. So please doublecheck before you hit that button.
4. If you have beaten Cremate, please wait 20 minutes before entering again, to give others a chance to play him. Entering within that time frame will result in the helper person planking you.
5. Do not send a challenge to Cremate; he will challenge you when it is your turn. Challenging Cremate will result in him planking you.
6. Cremate says that he has a life (HAHAHAHAHAHA) and therefore this will be done at random intervals during the day. We will stop jobbing people when he has to go and will announce to anyone still jobbed into the crew that he is wrapping up and will not be accepting new challenges outside the current queue. We will then dismiss jobbers as they finish up with Cremate.


All proceeds from this event will go to PHP's flag fund, which is used for blockades, and the planning of more events like this one! Please note that if Arakoua Island is blockaded on July 31, this event will be postponed.

Props to Cadswallop for thinking of this event idea.

Special thanks to Aeons and Shroomy, who collaborated on the completely awesome artwork!

Extra special thanks to Cremate, for being a super good sport. (for once)


EDIT: We now know that Cremate will be standing on the Unchanging Wrasse, in port at Arakoua Island. If you're the stalkerish type and either a) don't want to wait for the tournament announcement or b) miss the tournament, do a /w on Cremate. If he's on that ship with at least one other person from CSAC, it's probably okay to ask his CSAC buddy to job you. ;)

Re: Beat Cremate With a Stick!

Is this anything like that one time that I bought him at an officer auction and made him stand on the dock giving stuff away for an hour?

If so, awesome.

Re: Beat Cremate With a Stick!

That admittedly was pretty fun, albeit semi-annoying :P

And no, I'm not being forced to do this, Cadswallop came up with the idea and I thought it sounded cool. And since Gwen quite aptly pointed out my lack of a life, I should be able to be on for 3 or 4 hours on the 31st.

And no, I won't be able to give a guesstimate on what times I'll be on as it entirely depends on when I wake up, and when my sisters can get off facebook long enough for me to use my computer! :D

1 month to my own computer, one month :(

Re: Beat Cremate With a Stick!

Due to unforeseen real life circumstances, aka, my grandparents begging me to come to their house, and my mom spontaneously saying "We might go to grandma's this weekend!" at this point it is unclear if I will be around this weekend.

If this is the case, we will move the event to Saturday August 7th, and run it as originally planned.

I hope we can stll run it on the 31st, but we will see. Hopefully I have a definite answer on whether I'll be here or not by Wednesday, or Thursday at the latest.

Re: Beat Cremate With a Stick!

Teh tr0llz r ontu uz!

Anyways, slight update. At this point, I've been told that the plan is to go to our grandparents this weekend, but mom needs to talk to dad when he gets back from Calgary tomorrow night. At this point, it looks like we're rescheduling, but the final call will come down Thursday most likely.

Re: Beat Cremate With a Stick!

This is awesomely last minute, but the event will go on as planned on Saturday, July 31st.

THAT TOTALLY MEANS IN A FEW HOURS.

Depending on the amount of participants, we may extend it onto another day, or repeat it in a few weeks.
