[EVENT] A Bold New Race Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Announcement: As of around 6pm game time Friday the 13th, no one has signed up. The event will be revised and rescheduled for a later date at which point I will created a new forum post to keep things clean.

A BOLD NEW RACE

Grab yer hearties and your fine rum, Fresh and Bold are hosting a brand new type of event!

Details:

Location: Port Venture is the starting point.
When: Friday the 13th 6:30 pm Game Time | Race Starts @ 7:00 pm Game Time
Who: As many who want to join!
What is needed: A Sloop and some friends (All team members must have some puzzling stats)


What You Need To Know:

First off what is it even? We will be hosting an amazing race of sorts puzzle pirates style. Pirates will register their team with the team leader, name of the sloop, and members of the team. (Team leader does not have to be the one who navigates, but they do have to own the deed to the sloop.) When the race starts the ships will leave PV on a charted course. Along the course teams will stop a designated islands where the first 25 teams will receive 1 race token each. There will be 5 types of tokens all located at different islands for the teams to collect. The goal is to collect as many tokens as possible, so teams will have to engage each other in to collect gems from the enemy ships.

How will this all work?

Fresh And Bold will have ships ported at each checkpoint island on along the race. Each participating ship will arrive at the island and contact the FAB member for that island and they will transfer a token to their hold.

The goal is to obtain as many tokens as possible, so teams will have to engage each other in pvp and steal tokens from other pirates.

Questions:

What are the tokens? The tokens for the event are certain specific commodities that will remain unknown until you get them during the event.

How do we collect tokens? Along the route of the race there will be 5 checkpoint islands. At each checkpoint teams will port so a member of the event staff can transfer their next token into their hold.

How many tokens are there? The tokens drop in number as the race goes on. The first checkpoint will have 27 and they will drop by three at each checkpoint. (27,24,21,18,15) So it is important to go quickly.

Can we sink the other ships? Yes, but you won?t be able to increase your number of tokens so grapple will be what you want to go for.

If my ship sinks can I grab a new sloop? No, only one sloop per team. If you are getting close to max damage that is all the more reason to go for grapple as quickly as possible.

How Long will it go? We are planning for this to take around 3-4 hours from start to finish. Depends all on how quickly the teams move.

How many pirates per team? Since the sloop is the only ship allowed there is a max of 7 pirates per team, but if you want to go for a more elite group of 4-5 you can go for it. The Prize money will be split less ways.

Are there any requirements for teams? The only requirement is that a team can not be made up of only green named low experience pirates. The majority of the team needs to have at least broads in a few of the piracy puzzles.

What happens if everyone sinks? Then there will most likely only be one team left as the winner. If by some way the last two teams sink each other the resources and prizes will be put on hold for a second race.

How will we keep track of it all? Each of the islands will have a certain number of tokens, so at the end we will know exactly how many in total, and how many of each type of token there is. When a team gets to the final island they will transfer their tokens to the FAB ship ported at the finish line.

What will be the route? The race will start at port venture and go in order to these checkpoint islands. 1st Traveler?s Rest, 2nd Pride Island, 3rd Woodtick Island, 4th Dingwall Island, 5th Moonlight Cove, and the the finish line will be at Triplet?s Treasure.

What if I don?t have charts and/or mem? We will have a few members on the staff who will be ready to chart for the teams that need the route. This is a race between pirates so if you prepare by buying charts or by memming the route before hand that is all fair game.

How to win?

The main goal is to get as many tokens as you possibly can. The team with the most tokens at the end of the event will win the grand prize. You can only get one of each type of token from each check point island so you will have engage with other teams to steal their tokens.

The Grand Prize:

We are still accepting donations for the prizes. As of now the grand prize will be 100k poe, and a LE Skelly Class Sloop

As we receive donations I?ll will keep track of them here and the pot will grow. If you would like to donate reach out to any of the Royalty or titled members of Fresh and Bold and they can get you in contact with an appropriate representative.

You can always reach out to me if I am online with /tell Blondberd. If you want to give a prize for a specific occurence I am sure we can figure out how to implement it.

Other Prizes!
10k From Kingporo For the first team to sink another sloop!
100k From Dressedinred Towards the Grand prize!
30k From Lisakayela 30k to the 2nd place!
10k From Squigg To the first team to the finish line with at least one of each type of token.

How do you sign up?

Sign up is easy and can be done anytime up until the start of the event. To sign up you will need to provide: Your pirate name - The name of the sloop you will be using - Your teams name. You can do this on the forums or by visiting Blondberd?s Furnishing Stall on Port Venture and sign the guest book there.

Before the start of the race you will need to post the names of the pirates on you team. If you can settle this beforehand feel free to post the names of your team members along with your sign up. If you don?t know until the day of that is fine I will just need the names before the race starts.

How will you know where the commodities come from? Would seem simple to place a feed ship along the route do an alt pvp and fill your hold with a little of every thing? Not that people would fix pvp's at all.

Can you hunt NPE's also? such as merchs along the route.

You can hunt NPC vessels along the route if you'd like but the commodities that we will be using will be specific enough that we can track them and ones that you can't really find on a merchant vessel. On top of that we will know the exact numbers of what goes out to who, and the checkpoint islands are all uninhabited so they can't buy the commodities.

Before the race starts members of the staff will also check the holds of all the participating ships to make sure there isn't anything other than booze and small cannon balls.

There is also hope that people will want to participate in the race and not cheat. Unfortunately we are yet to have gems implemented but we believe we have a viable solution.

If he is your best friend surely he can move the party to a time that you can do. That's how it works right?

If it goes well I plan to host more of these. Maybe once a month. I already have some ideas for future ones.

I think it went to my head the second I found the magical ability to force every flaggy to see my broadcasts. I have since reduced the amount of broadcasts I utilise, however they still occasionally occur...
