Kittens' Playthings! (Win Olive Island) Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Artwork courtsey of Anothersneak and Ants.



The kittens of Babylon grow bored of their current toys, and want to play with the ones everyone else got for the holidays! Like the spoiled kittens we are, we will never return them in perfect condition either!

What
A sinking, sloop only, no cannon blockade!
For one round flags must bump each other to get sinks, so remember that golden + does extra ram damage.
On the turn that a ship sinks, if yours touches it at all, you get a point. So if you do 99% of the damage but fail to be a touching ship at the time of sink, you get nothing.
Myself and several other kittens will be watching closely with our tails twitching and our paws occasionally batting at the blockade board keeping a track of points.
Points are awarded to the flag, not the vessel, so the more you field at the same time the better your chances are!
The second round of the blockade is in case of a tie in points, in which case the two (or more) parties will be able to go at it again against each other. Other flags may enter to help skew things, but only the flags that tied in points in the previous round will be able to earn points.



When
January 12th, 2013 at 10AM PST.
This allows for two rounds if necessary and will also be finished before any real blockades that may happen that day.

Why
Meow.

Prizes
1st - Can either take Olive Island or get 100k
A special trinket inscribed for the event.

2nd - 14 Harrjms and 2 Zarchis 50k
A special trinket inscribed for the event.


Other Stuff
As far as trinkets go for first and second place, there will be one per flag, and they will go to a person that multiple people from the flag tell me is acceptable, with the idea that the trinket goes into a case that everyone in the flag can see.
Registration is not required, but it'd be cool for flags to post so we know who will be in attendance.
Earning buoy points in the blockade will not benefit you whatsoever.
If the winning flag does not take Olive, the Kittens will pass their plaything along to a Brigand King or Queen.
If there is a ridiculously low turnout, such as 2 flags with one sloop each during the whole 45 minutes of Round 1, Kittens reserves the right to cancel the event and scuttle the island. We want to have many many playthings! Regardless of what happens, we will not be keeping the island.
This event is not endorsed by Cheshi. (yet)

The ancient and noble flag of Super Awesomeness will be in attendance with the intent of competing for ownership of the island. All other flags, beware our might. Quake in fearful expectation of our super awesome offensive capability. Our sailors fill the skies with bulging canvas. Our carpenters turn our wooden hulls to iron sides. Our bilgers purge the salt sea so that our keels fly across the waters. Our cannons rain fire upon all who dare to challenge.

Seriously - we're looking forward to this. Thanks for setting up the opportunity.

Just a thing on how the trinkets and prize money works (if first place chooses that, and second gets money regardless), if your flag has a sole monarch or prince(ss) then they will both go to them. However if that isn't the case, then I will need PMs/tells from several royalty members that all say the trinket (which will be inscribed for the flag, not an individual) and the money go to them because they earned it or they will split it how the flag wants or whatever the reason. It just needs to be the same person, from multiple "position" holding members in the flag. This is just to ensure that if Prince X actually coordinated the flag's effort and the monarch could care less that the deserving person gets the correct prize. Sounds trivial and I doubt it'll be an issue, but I figure I might as well cover my bases.

Whoo I finally got to the post page, blasted forums.

First off, thank you all that attended!

White Lightning kicked major butt round 1 and had 5 sinking points to win Olive Island!

Round 1 also resulted in a four way tie between Booching Blaggards, Secrets of the Deep, Super Awesomeness and Easy Livin.

This carried over to Round 2 where Super Awesomeness won it with 2 sinking points.

Trinkets and money will be transferred after I receive them (the trinkets that is) from Clotho.

This was a lot of fun for the Kittens!
