Re: Lost At Sea

By not sticking to a schedule of posting, you are giving the advantage to those who surf the forum more regularly.

I see Budclare was first to answer last week, but I don't see that name on the leader board.

At second and third glance, the riddle this week is ambiguous. We'll see...

You're right!

Sorry Budclare. You have 12 points.

Re: Lost At Sea

Whats up with this event? We havent had any responses from the host in awhile. Part of me thinks we're wasting our time.

Neither Chaosdragon nor Kgeo has been on Midnight since October. I'm assuming RL has butted in and made YPP and this event take a back seat for awhile.

Maybe when ye do come back guys, instead of putting up a last riddle right away ye should announce a date for the event to recommence, so everyone can get on the same page again.

Re: Lost At Sea

Right, sorry about the event guys. Ive recently gone on holiday, and handed the reigns over to Kgeo for that length of time. Since returning, Kgeo has (for some reason or another) vanished: so until I can contact him and get him to send me the updated score table, I'm not in a position to post the next clue.

Sorry about this, but I assure you we will get this back up and running ASAP!!! I'll get the next clue up this monday (13th November) and play it by the schedule from then on.

Once again, sorry!

Re: Lost At Sea

Kgeo here, and as Chaosdragon stated he handed the event over to me. And as Whedonella suggested, Real Life did keep me off Puzzle Pirates and this event for about 11 days.

But thats all sorted now. Here are the result for Diary Entry 6:

::answer either of the three: Guava, Cranberry, or Durian!

Doddits: 9 points
Ceylon: 6 Points
Slvr: 4 points

1Point:

Budclare, Whedonella, Tibrid, Bieyen, onelove, dbavirt, Cams, Yellowshanks, Chimpzilla,


Wrong answers: Bridalgirl, Brassbeard, Jessaylay, Zaychik, Shren,

I got a few emails with people not guessing on Midnight, or not leaving a name. These people did NOT give the right answer and therefore were not sent an email asking for their name.

Sorry again all. Good Luck on Monday 13th!

Re: Lost At Sea

Hi. It's the 15th.

Due to the "first come first points" nature of this event, I find it quite annoying and unfair that the event schedule is not adhered to.

Hi all, I cannot say that I have spoken to Chaosdragon since he has been back from holiday. I can only apoligise for this.

Instead of this, I will post 2 more. Both on Monday 20th, and then stop entries on Monday 27th.

Again, sorry for the inconvience all.

After the 27th, and then I will add up all the scores, and announce the winners.

Re: Lost At Sea

It would be much appreciated, if you could all voice your opinions on the event.

All points, good and bad will be valid.
We would appreciate them incase we make another event like this in the future!

Thanks all!

Re: Lost At Sea

 
Lost at Sea - A Twin Dragons Event.
(All diary entries posted, alone, in THIS thread.)

Avast! While out pillaging today with me motley crew, I accidently knocked me hearty, Kgeo, off the helm of the vessel! I dived in after him, but couldn't save him from being carried off by the waves. Who knows where hes gone!

Upon reboarding my vessel, I turned around and ported. And low and behold, what do I find on the floor? An extract from Kgeo's diary. It read something like this:



The only problem is that I forgot about his love of riddles and puzzles! I don't think I'll be able to do this on my own. Actually, that's a good idea! If you guys can help me decipher his hidden clues , I might just be able to find him! I think I have an idea wheres hes heading with this one, so I'll get after him!

If I know Kgeo, he will do his best to return to Turtle Island, and our home. But where to start? without a compass, hes bound to get lost somewhere! I'd best get after him, and get him home soon!

If you guys can work out the riddle in his diary, then send your answer to twin-dragons@hotmail.co.uk , and I'll go check! He should tell me which island he wants to go to next somewhere in there. It'll probably take me a few days to get there though, but if I find something there I'll post it here ASAP!

Oh, and to all those pirates that help me, I've got a few goodies lying about! Ya see, as I need to find Kgeo as fast as possible, I will give 9 points to the first person that gives me the right answer to each of the riddles, 6 points to the second, and 4 points to the third. Every correct answer after that will be awarded 1 point a piece. Im sure he'll be travelling about a bit though, so I expect he'll visit alot of islands before i find him again, so there will be plenty of chances to score points! When I've finally discovered Kgeo, I think I may be able to dig up some prizes for the people that score highest over the whole search:

1st place: One war brig, the Open-minded Ling!
2nd place: 20,000 PoE
3rd place: 10,000 PoE
4th-10th: 1,000 PoE, and entry to the lucky dip to win a sand dollar!


Anyways, that's enough talking! Hold on Kgeo, I'm coming!!

(Note: The puzzles and riddles featured in this event will all spell out an island in the midnight ocean. Also, the puzzles featured will be of varying difficulty, so if you cant work out one, check back for the next! Best of luck to all that enter, and a new puzzle should be posted every monday!)

Is it the island of ageing

Re: Lost At Sea

Only 5 hours left to post in your final answers.

There is some bad news though.
Chaosdragon has not logged on at all, and he has the prizes locked in his shack, so I am unable to deliver the prizes until he logs on.

I can however give the War Brig, Pink starfish, and Sand Dollar away, as they are under my possesion.

Sorry about this all.
Good Luck.
