Rogues on the Water: An Alternate Win Condition Event Blockade

Rogues on the Water: An Alternate Win Condition Event Blockade

You know what they say. Those that you trust the most are also those that can take the most - your belongings, your wealth, even your life. They work from the inside, and you never know until it's too late. How many have thought the battle was won, only to be backstabbed by someone who was counted as a friend?

And so that's the question we at AWC pose to you, navigators of the ocean: Will you choose to trust, or will you not? Will you cooperate, or is it every pirate for themselves? And will it gain you victory - or lose you everything?

At Viridis Island on Dec 18th at 3pm GT, the game of piracy and paranoia will take to the water... now with 100% more cannon fire!

Don't worry, you don't have to know how to play ROMS to join in with the event. The rules are far less complicated than those of the forum game, and there will be far more boomy fun than debate and finger pointing.

In Brief:

There will be two teams, rogues and innocents.

The rogue team's aim is to sink innocent ships and survive until the end of the round. If a rogue sloop is still on the board at the end of the round, the rogue team is considered to have won, and the surviving rogue ship(s) will receive prizes.

The innocent team's aim is to sink all of the rogues before the round is over. An innocent sloop that sinks a rogue sloop will receive a set of prizes. If an innocent sloop sinks multiple rogue sloops, it will receive an enhanced prize package. Only an innocent navigator may claim a prize for sinking a rogue.

Like ROMS, this is a game of an informed minority playing against an uninformed majority - the rogues will be aware of each other's identities, while an innocent can only be sure of themselves.

How it Works

- Event blockade settings: 1 round, non-sinking, ignore alliances, friendly fire enabled.
- The event is for sloops only. You may have a crew of up to 4 people, including yourself, on your sloop.
- After entries have closed, some number of the entered navigators will be chosen secretly to be "rogues". They will be informed of this fact, and of the identity of their fellow rogues, in a PM on these forums - so be sure to check back here after the closing date!
- Before the round starts, the navigator of each registered sloop will be jobbed into the AWC event crew to allow the event officiators to make announcements. Please do not spam the chat channel.
- The rogues will know each other's identities and may communicate privately in order to coordinate movements on the board.
- Innocent sloops may contact and attempt to coordinate with any other player, but should remember that they have no way of knowing if the other navigator is actually a rogue. Rogues can, will and do lie!
- When a ship is sunk, this fact will be announced in the crew channel, along with the alignment of the navigator.

How to Enter

Post the name of the navigator and the ship in this thread before Sat, Dec 17th at 12pm GT.

You don't need to tell us the names of your crew, but you do need to ensure that you only have 4 people on your ship when you enter the board. We will be doing spot checks and you will be disqualified if found in violation of this rule. AWC encourages players to self-police and inform an event organiser if they discover someone to be cheating.

Prizes

Standard Prize Package (for surviving as a rogue or for sinking a rogue as an innocent):
- For the Navigator: a renamed rogue-class sloop
- For the Crew: 4 pirate team portrait, lime inscribed pins.

Expanded Prize Package (for sinking multiple rogues as an innocent):
As above plus:
40k

Re: Rogues on the Water: An Alternate Win Condition Event Blockade

Is it possible for two sloops of the same crew to participate? I should imagine that if so, it would be hard to make one of the sloops rogues without the other half of their crew finding out. Even so, I'm certainly looking to participate, it sounds really fun.

It's possible, yes.

I think it should prove possible for a rogue team in that situation to keep their status a secret. I understand that it's a bit of a dilemma, between lying to your friends and being found out. Probably the easiest thing to do would be to just agree not to talk about it. Rogues won't find out they're rogues until the night before the event anyway, so it's not a secret anyone will have to keep for long.

If an innocent sinks a rogue they get a prize. It doesn't matter if they get sunk later.

If a rogue survives the round they get a prize.

Survival is only a rogue win condition.
