Location: From Zuyua Mist to Alicorn Island
Description: A Solo Sloop Race from Zuyua Mist to Alicorn Island; one person per Sloop only. Bring your own Sloop. The rules are as follows subject to minor changes up to 4:30 P.M.: Register at Zuyua Fort, stating the name of your ship and your intent to enter. One person per ship only. Crewmates accidentally boarding without permission during the race will be tolerated only at the discretion of the Judges. You will be jobbed into the race crew. Participants must stay in the jobbed crew at all times during the race. Charting should begin at 4:45P.M.. Sloops must be set to “evade”. You will receive one commodity that will be transferred to the hold of your ship; loss of that commodity for any reason will result in disqualification. After you are charted, head back to the Fort; the race will start from there. With the discretion of the Judges, the race will begin promptly at 5:00 P.M., with a scramble from the fort to your ships. Judges will periodically board to ensure you are not receiving help from other players, are still set to evade, have not lost the required commodity, and are otherwise adhering to the rules. Failure to adhere to the rules of the race, or engaging in unsportsmanlike shenanigans will likely cause you to be disqualified by the Judges.

The ship will be set to “Swabbie Ship Transport”; swabbies will be assigned one each to Sails and Bilge, and the Crew Officer will do Carpentry. The Crew Officer will be on board to track your performance, and order the ship to Sail. The course will be from Saltstraum Rock to Barracuda, 7 leagues. This is not a timed event; scoring will be determined by Duty Report scores. The first league will not be scored. The Duty Report from the last 6 leagues will be scored as follows... Incredible: 5 points; Excellent: 4 points; Good: 3 points; Fine: 2 points; Poor: 1 point; Learning or Booched: 0 points. If the ship has been turned about due to a booch, you will be penalized one point, and the ship will immediately be turned about to resume its course. The highest total score wins. In the event of a tie, a tie breaking contest over 3 leagues will be done.

Orders to be followed will be lead with “Nightshade says”. All other orders, including those from Simon, will be considered false, and following them will be considered insubordination, and grounds for a planking... or a few lashes, if Nightshade’s feeling frisky! Sails and Rigging will be considered the same station; no distinction will be made. Time to reach your station will start at 10 seconds, and gradually be reduced to allow continued elimination. In order to win, you’d best do what Nightshade Says!

Late entrants may be accepted at Gallo’s discretion, but the best chance to win will be to arrive at the start time of 3:00 P.M.. For each competing AND non-competing player ship you have won a majority of battles against during the contest, you will be awarded a point. If two player ships have tied in the number of victories against one another during the contest, the ship to win a battle first is awarded the point. The Captain and Ship with the most points wins. Any further questions may be directed to Gallo. Enter for glory rights, and fun combined. See you there, if you dare!

Event: Luffsalot’s Tournament of Crossed Spades!
Type: Spades Tournament
Date & Time: May 30, 2011; 5:00 P.M.
Location: The Xebec Moody Haddock, in port at Saltstraum Rock
Description: Let’s see which pair of Pirates are the best Spaders on Malachite! You are encouraged to find a partner on your own. If you cannot find one, talk to Luffsalot, and you MAY get assigned a partner at random. All participants will be jobbed aboard the Xebec. One partner from each team will join an unrated, local only Swordfight tournament seeded at random to determine the initial Spades Tournament bracket. Once the Swordfight tournament has finished, teams will be assigned their opponents in a double-elimination Spades Tournament. All competing participants must remain aboard the ship. Tabletalk is HEAVILY discouraged! If Luffsalot has determined that tabletalk has occurred, the option for ejection is up to your opponents.
For clarification, tabletalk is:
Any information that suggests how your partner should bid
Any information that suggests how your partner should play
Any information that says anything about the quality or quantity of cards in your hand
Technically speaking, merely saying “I booched that trick.” immediately after the trick was taken is tabletalk, because it implies you had (and, thus, still have) cards available to you which could have won it; that being said, be a good sport and merely remind your opponents to be more careful, unless you genuinely suspect they are trying to cheat.
Prizes: 1st: Patron’s tables worth 100k PoE and 30 Dubs (choice of paint), 2nd: Spades Tables 3rd: Wrapped Parlor Badges
Run and Sponsored by: Luffsalot and Quirly of the crew The Barrel of Monkeys, and the flag Keys and Keystones


To Contribute to Maylachite:

To contribute a Maylachite event, talk with Luffsalot. Be sure to provide a Clever Event Name, what Type of event it is, the Date and Time you would like (each day is first-come, first-served), the Location the event is to take place at, a thorough but concise Description of the event, the Prizes that will be offered, and at least two Pirates who will be available to Run the event, in case one Pirate cannot make it. Please contribute your own prizes if possible; though there are generous Pirates offering Prize Support for Pirates whose events need them, this generosity should be saved for the best of any events in need, so do not count on it. Once you have a spot on the calendar, submit your event to the OMs following these instructions; you may need to provide the OMs with additional information. Do not count on OM support! You CAN run a successful event without it.
