Tyranny Presents.... Olympic Events Part II - A Scavenger Hunt [WINNERS ANNOUNCED] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote



Welcome to the second event in a variety of ones Tyranny plan on doing in the run up to and during the Olympics; we plan on running events of many varieties, hopefully encompassing the talents of the pirates of Cerulean.

So this one tests your abilities to find objects, items, portraits, trinkets, people etc in a given amount of time. A good one for the old, new and inbetweeners this one.

When: Saturday 21st July at 11.00am PDT (jobbing will start 30 mins before via the NB)

Where: Cerulean

Time it will last: 3 hours

How: A list will be posted here on the forums at 11.00am, all participants must be jobbed into Tyranny to participate. You have 3 hours to collect as many items as you can on the list. Some will be easy, some very hard, how you play it is up to you. Bring them all (in one go) to one of the designated pirate judges before the time is up and trade them to that pirate.

Scoring: Easy items will carry 1 point each, Medium 2, Hard 3 and you can get 5 for the super-duper rare items on the list. The pirate with the highest overall score wins.

Disclaimer: All items traded will be noted and scored then returned to the pirate who traded them, no items will be retained, please seek out the judge you traded to to get them back (and we will be actively looking for you.) Only trade with the pirates that are listed as judges and noone else, we will aim to get all items traded back in 48 hours.

The reason we have put in the trade process is so that items (particularly those that are extremely rare) are not passed between hearties to score points. We want this to be as fair as possible.

Judges:

TBC


Prizes:

There are 3 prizes available and each prizewinner gets one prize and winners will take their pick in order (first place chooses first, followed by second, etc). There will also be gold, silver and bronze medals for the top three.

Choices are:

Renamed Sloop - Sensational Scavenger
Sleeping Turtle
Plum Big Cat


Judges may also award further prizes at their discretion.

For clarification purposes ahead of tomorrows event.

We are looking for only one of each item, multiples of the same item will not count towards your overall total.

Do we need a ship somewhere as well or is a never-ending supply of whisking potions enough?

The judges will remain on one central ship throughout the contest, it is up to you how you collect the items.

Hope the clarifies.

I think the whole point was that 'rare to some is not rare to others.' There was a lot of networking of hearty lists, which made it about the social puzzle too.

As a flag member I could not be a participant, but it was fun to watch. Look for more Tyranny in the near future!

if you look at Steampunk on Cerulean it is included on her pirate page portrait. They were a gift with purchase about a year ago. I am aware of at least 2 on the eastern side of Cerulean. But none were offered up in this scavenger hunt.

And the winners are....

First - Zarchi 110 points

Second - Locu 84 points

Third - Steveb 77 points


Please contact me in game for your prizes :)

I would like to say that there were a total of 121 points available, and we also had a further 3 people scoring 60+

Thank you to all those who participated we hope you all had as much fun taking part as we did putting it together. If you still have your items to collect please see the judge you traded with in game, or catch me.

Stay tuned for more events coming to Cerulean very shortly, rumour has it we have a Persimmon Cat and a Parrot to give away at some point :)

Grats to the winners and thanks for the event. At first I thought, I wouldn't need 3 hours. Then I realized that it would be hard. Nicely organized and planned. I hope I have time for the following events.

Steveb - time was noted of when the trades were made, so that would have been a considering factor had their been a tie.

As it happened the top 6 all utilised the full 3 hours give or take 30 minutes :)
