(Sorry, I couldn't help but offer up my MS Paint Skillz. No insult is meant to the wonderful artist in the other thread.)


More to be added soon! Oh, and you should probably check out our
Parley Post to see how to enter.



Please note that this event, as with any lottery or raffle, is run at
the risk of the participants. If there is shown to be cheating or
wrongdoing, the culprit will be punished, but no poe will be returned
to participants affected. Please only enter if you trust the person or
people hosting the event.


Notice that the island will only be raffled off if the
corresponding event blockade is a success.


Edit: changed the title to avoid legitimate confusion.

Re: FPC RAFFLE Maybe Orca Island for PRIZE!!!

Sounds cool, but you have to earn the tickets in a blockade right?

what happens if we just want to buy them?

Guide to "buying" a ticket:

First, buy a premade brig from the midnight bazaar thread here.

Then, find someone to navigate and someone to XO the ship. This shouldn't be difficult, as most everyone wants to nav/XO in a blockade. I would suggest finding your best b-navver friend and letting him nav (make him bring some friends, too), and then you can XO. Or the other way around.

Get 20 of your friends or 20 of your crew to promise they will show up on the day of the blockade. If you can get more, that's probably better since they won't all show up. Pay them 200 poe per round if they lub you or 500 poe per round if they are money-hungry and tell them how much fun it will be. Make it a crew event! Promise a celebratory pillage afterwards.

Float your ship to Orca, port it, and send me a PM saying "hey! i'd like to enter!" You send me poez for stock, and someone drives your brig with your jobbers into the blockade!

Total cost (assuming you bring your own jobbers and pay them) is probably less than 100k. Just last weekend, I spent 100k to watch other people drive on a blockade board , and it was great fun! You can too!

Just under two weeks to get your boats together! I hope to see you there!

You sure that didn't count as pointing and laughing? :)

Anyway!
I've already awarded most prizes. Other winners are:

  • My artwork goes to someone from Elysian Fields!

Find me for prizes!

Also, Eagleheart is the winner of the "best cutter" award, which is worth something nice from Pennsuedo. Honorable mention to Onelove for sinking a frigate with a sloop.

Laughing at Chrisspy for suffering a crushing defeat? Something tells me he was not in it to "win", in the conventional way most people are.

Oh, and thanks for the scimitar. I think I will play Santa and gift it to someone in my flag for working so hard today.

This really should have been the funnest blockade ever, since both sides had different definitions of "win," and both managed to accomplish it. :) Of course, I'm not saying I wouldn't have liked to "win" in their way as well...

Ack! I Parley-ized it!

Instead, maybe I just ask, why ye laughing, Taco? Maybe because this doesn't really qualify so much as an "event?" I wasn't implying that this was anywhere near as cool as the simple squares or the dolls, both of which I watched obsessively despite not entering. :) Yar!

Naw, I jsut thought the whole idea was kinda funny. As far as it qualifing as an event...meh, I dont think forcing other people to participate (which they had to do to keep the island) is so much of an event. Although I fully supported the defense with my time I do have to give them the party pooper award for not going sinking with it. Now that woulda made it fun.

Be sure to check out the Midnight Birthday Bash, I have close to 2 mil in prizes to give out!

I agree wholeheartedly, and thought it was sort of on the border between Events and Parley. :) We squeaked by, cause we're not in Davy Jones yet!

Yay for the non-tartiness of Events forums!

Good luck with the Birthday Bash! I'm considering making an enormous card. :) Should be fun times.

    Yes but no brains, of course.
