Will be making art for the event in the next few days.

What will you do?

Rules: Each flag will be allowed one sloop with as many pirates as they can get on it which will influence it.
They will also be allowed 1 fan with 3 people on it so it can't influence.
Once your sloop or fan has been sank you may not enter another one.
The winner will be decided by who gains the most points.

When: Friday 26th July 1pm Gametime

Where: Cnossos Island (non-sinking)

Prizes:
1st Place, Cnossos Island.
2cd place, 5 fanchauns
3rd place, 5 Sloops

Additional Sloops will be given out for things such as Most sinks, moves we consider great, Best Offensive fanchuan, Best Defensive fanchuan

We are aware Bipolar(well some tyranny members) ran a very similar event awhile back using dhows instead of fans. I enjoyed that event a lot and felt like we should revisit it. Therefore if you'd like to thank the people who thought up the event please send them to tyranny.

It'd be helpful if any flags could preregister before 3-4 days before the event so we know what the likely partication will be.

Feel free to ask any questions.

Edit: if you would like to use a vent channel for the two navvers to coordinate, we can supply you with a pass-worded channel in Legendary Booties server.

Time?

Sinking?


meh sorry, was late last night, non-sinking 1pm game to try cater for all timezones. Thanks for picking that up cala

Other questions:

 
Is there any maximum pay for our jobbers?


Nope, you may pay your jobbers what you want.

 
Can we use Green alt players on the fans to get more bots?


Yes, you may. This means any flag can use this method so their fanchuan to get more moves and such.

thought i'd chip in on this

Yes, you may. This means any flag can use this method so their fanchuan to get more moves and such.

according to the rules:
"They will also be allowed 1 fan with 3 people on it so it can't influence."

cutter/dhow/fanchuan retains all 4 bots onboard with up to 3 yellow-named players so there is no need to use green alt in this instance

2 questions though:
#1 is this event limited only to non island-holding flags or free for all?
#2 what happens if the winning flag in this event does not have the required fame to accept transfer of large island?

Any flag is allowed to enter.

We will give flags without the fame a choice. We will hold the island until they get the fame for the transfer or if they can rush through the week notice in the forums. They could also take the amount of the war chest (125k)

And eh sorry i didn't look into the fan and bots thing, i just said yes :P

maybe I am stupid and I am known for getting times confused but It is currently Jul 9, 2013 2:39:43 PM PDT on the Cerulean ocean.
according to the NB the blockade will begin in 16 days, 14 hours and 19 minutes. doesn't that add up to 5am game time? I know I was logged on yesterday when the event was announced so is the NB wrong?

Can you please clarify the Fanchuan rule? Are you saying it can only have three people on it or it just can't influence?

You can only have a maximum of 3 people on it, If you have less you will not be penalized.

A massive "thank you" to everyone who took part to help us in the event - both crew and jobbers.

Another "thank you" to the other crews for taking part and making it an exciting time.

Also I would like to thank the organisers for putting on a great event, it may have been short but it certainly was a nail biter at times!

We have NO plans to make changes to the island (unless we lower taxes). We intent to hold Cnossos, look after her, and try to learn from the experience. So if anyone out there has friendly and impartial advice on running an inhabited island - myslef or any of my SO's would love to hear from you - thank you.
