Re: Beta Blast 3! 2006.10.14, 8am-9pm(?)

Home Decorating Contest

Beta Island be a very diversely populated island right at the heart of the Midnight Ocean's Sapphire Archipelago. From yer governing flag of Water Sleeps comes some good news: if yer house be looking fine, inside and out, ye could win up to 35,000 PoE* in prizes!

Ye may enter whether ye be a veteran citizen of Beta who owns multiple homes, or a greenie whose prized possession is his beautiful shack!

No pre-entry is required, although reccomended. Judging will take place primarily over the weekend of October 7-8, however special circumstances may be allowed for. Prizes will be given out on Sunday, October 15.

There will be three awesome judges for this event: Kbetle, Seemonkey, and Beartooth. All three of them must inspect your home before you will be officially entered. edit: Judges are changed to Kbetle, Beartooth, and Redscarlett. Just get one judge to view your home. The judge will take screenies so the other two can view whenever convenient.

Entries will be divided into three categories for this event.

Shack: Anyone who owns a shack on Beta may enter this category.
Cottage: Anyone who owns a cottage on Beta may enter this category.
Townhouse / Villa: Anyone who owns a townhouse and / or a villa on Beta may enter this category.

Note that word, "owns." All prizes will be given to the owner of the home, no matter who invites any of the judges into the home. Extenuating circumstances, of course, such as a dormant owner, will be reason for transference of a prize. Of course, once the owner receives a prize, we can not control what they do with it.

Scoring:
There are four basic categories the judges will be judging you on. These are Use of Space, Color Coordination, Style Coordination, and Judge's Personal Comments.

Each judge will grade each house out of a total possible 100 points (with 5 possible extra points). So, each house's grade will be out of a total of 300 points.

If that made no sense to you, you should read the full rubric, available here.

Now, yer all *hopefully* curious about the prizes, and that 35,000 PoE claim.

Prizes:

Shacks:

First place prize of 5,000 PoE .

Cottages:
First place prize of 10,000 PoE.

Townhomes / Villas:
First place prize of 25,000 PoE.
Second place prize of 8,000 PoE.

Bonus!
This prize will go to the person whose total score is the greatest. So, chances are only entrants to two of the categories will be able to win this 2,000 PoE!

Now, I know what yer thinking! NO, you may not enter all three categories, or enter the same one multiple times (using alts and whatnot). If we find out that you have done this, ALL your entries will instantly be disqualified!

So, yer probably not quite sure what ye need to do. Basically, make yer house look nice. Once ye think it does, tell one of the judges (Beartooth, Kbetle, Seemonkey) sometime between now and Sunday, October 8. Anyone who does not notify us of their desire to enter between now and Sunday, October 8, will not be entered into the contest! Once at least one of the judges is aware of your desire to enter, your name will be entered into the list of entrants. All the judges should look at this list, and make some attempt to contact you in-game. However, the responsibility of getting all three judges to look at yer home is primarily yours. So, don't sit idly by, expecting the judges to look all over for ye.

One more thing. There is no reason why you may not change the layout of your house between judge's visits. However, there is no guarantee that your expectations of what each judge likes will hold true! NOT RECOMMENDED.

Any questions should be posted in this thread. Any attempts to register via PMs or this thread will be disregarded. You must contact one of the judges in-game!

This post was made by Lordkalvan from notes provided by the primary coordinator for this event, Beartooth.

Re: Beta Blast 3! 2006.10.14, 8am-9pm(?)

Treasure Sloop!

What:
Round up a crew and attempt to steal our treasure!

Where:
Between Beta and Iris

Date:
Saturday, October 14, 2006

Time:
  • 10am-11am(?): First run
  • 8pm-9pm, or until we run too low on treasure: Second run

Details:
The sloop Spellbinding Betta will start each of the two runs with 50K in the booty chest and a hold packed with goodies. Load up a sloop and come after us! You are allowed to attack once only, so that other sloops can have a turn. No shooting at the Spellbinding Betta please (and we won't shoot at ye either), but while you wait there should be lots of imperial brigands as well as a target-rich environment for PvPers.

Cargo is being gathered, but we can promise multiple units of Kraken's Blood and one unit of gold ore. We will save some of the items for the second run.

No registration needed. Just show up with your own sloop and crew and hunt us down! The Spellbinding Betta will be crewed with whatever Water Sleeps flaggies are available (not necessarily our best sword fighters, but not our cabin people either).

Re: Beta Blast 3! 2006.10.14, 8am-9pm(?)

A housing contest addendum

In the case of a conflict of interests with one of the judges (i.e. one of the judges is a roomie in that house, or has an alt as a roomie in that house) the judge will not judge that house, and her score will be counted as the average of those given by the other two judges.

Currently there is only one such foreseeable conflict, however that may change as time moves on.


One more clarification. What was said about entering multiple categories, this is per person, not per pirate, or even per account (which, of course, we have no idea from what account a given pirate is.)


From now on, the first judge to inspect a given home will take screenshots of every room in the house so that the other judges do not need to be online in order to judge the houses.

The first two entrants have already had this done, however the next three have not.

My apologies for this omission.


EDITED on 10/13

OK, we have not received any shack entries. As such, the 5,000 PoE that was for that will go for a second-place cottage.

Also, we did not receive any entries into two categories, and, as such, the 2,000 PoE designated for that will be added to a third-place prize for the Townhouse/Villa.

10,000 PoE for Cottage first place
5,000 PoE for Cottage second place
25,000 PoE for First Place Townhouse / Villa
8,000 PoE for Second Place Townhouse / Villa
2,000 PoE for Third Place Townhouse / Villa


NEW ADDENDUM 10/5
Each prize-winning house will have its entire set of screenies posted on the forum, in compressed, but clicky-expandable form. In addition, any houses that came in second place (in shack / cottage categories) or third place (in townhouse/villa category) will have their entire screenie sets posted on the forum. Additionally, any houses that did not fall under any of those categories, but had some special feature about them, will have as many screenies posted as is neccessary to illustrate this feature.

Probably more clarifications to come.

Re: Beta Blast 3! 2006.10.14, 7am-9pm(?)

Autograph Hunt

Time: 7am-7pm Pacific

What: Autograph Hunt

Where: On Beta island only (not on other islands or on ships)

Prizes:
1st Place: sloop Committed Muskellunge stocked with 33 rum and 333 small cannballs
2nd Place: empty sloop Stubborn Stickleback
3rd Place: ship in a bottle

Details:
Each participant will go around Beta island collecting autographs of the royals and titled members of Water Sleeps. All signatures are worth equal value. Please do not ask for signatures before 7am Pacific or after 7pm Pacific. In order to obtain a signature you must be in view of the person whose signature you are requesting. Thus no long distance tells. Also you may only request signatures from royals while they are on Beta Island. Not other islands or ships. In buildings on Beta island is fine, as is wandering around outside on the island.

After you collect your signatures please email the names of the pirates whose signatures you were able to obtain to jacine@hyperborea.org . All signatures will be verified. In the subject line of the email please put only your pirate name and the number of signatures you obtained. At the bottom of the email please place a number between 1 and 100, this number will be used to randomly break any ties that might occur within the first 3 places.

Notes:
1. Signatures will be a phrase of the royal or titled members? choice. For example, last year Lordkalvan used "Down Styphon!" (which was one of the battlecries used in the book "Lord Kalvan of Otherwhen" by H Beam Piper).

2. We don't promise that every royal and every titled member will appear on Beta at all on Oct 14th. Most of them aye. Tis quite possible that one or more of them won't show up until after 7pm Pacific as well.

3. Assume that the most autographs anybody gets is 5, and 23 pirates send emails saying they got 5 autographs. If one of the emails was clearly sent some time before the rest, it will win first place. If it looks like all the emails were sent right at 7pm Pacific, then Jacine will use a random number and the numbers each pirate put at the bottom of his/her email message to select the winner. And if that fails to determine a winner, she will just draw the name out of a hat, from those that are tied.

4. Send your email message no later than 7pm Pacific. Aye, we know it can take a few minutes to arrive, but *send* it by then. Timestamps will be from the time Jacine gets the messages, so changing your computer's system clock won't help you win.

5. Yes, each royal and titled member who gives out autographs will be keeping a record of who gets one. Yes, Jacine will be comparing these lists to verify the winners actually got the number of autographs they claimed to get.

Re: Beta Blast 3! 2006.10.14, 7am-9pm(?)

Major Housing Contest Change

Due to real-life issues, one of the judges, Seemonkey, is unable to continue judging. So, we have found another great person, Redscarlett, to fill in.

For the two houses that Seemonkey has already judged, her scores will be discarded and replaced with Red's. For the rest of them, you most likely won't notice much of a difference, except now you have one other person you can contact (but, thanks to screenies, to mandatory.)

Thank you all for bearing with me through all this!

The original post can be found here.

The original set of clarifications can be found here.

Re: Beta Blast 3! 2006.10.14, 7am-9pm(?)

Borrowable Sloops

Need a sloop for one of the events on Oct 14th? Free charting is available to help ye get yer sloop to Beta, but if ye don't want to do that (or buy a premade sloop here), we have a number of borrowable sloops.

1. If you PM or email Lordkalvan ahead of time, we will have a sloop available with the deed held by an alt. You crew the alt, then use the sloop. After the event, we take the alt back into our own crew and you lose the sloop (and anything you left on it).

2. Even at pretty much the last minute, if we have a premade sloop left, we can lend it to you in exchange for the deed to any other ship. After the event, we trade the deeds back. Just send a /tell to Lordkalvan in-game to arrange this.

3. If you don't have another ship deed to trade, you can trade 12.6K for a sloop deed. After the event, you can either keep the sloop, or else return the ship to Lordkalvan and get the full 12.6K back.

There is NO charge for any of these services, however the ships will be empty when you get them.

Re: Beta Blast 3! 2006.10.14, 7am-9pm(?)

Due to lack of interest, we have cancelled the Solo Sloop Battle Royale event. It is being replaced with Out fer Blood!. Use any part of the Noon-6pm window ye like. Ye earn one ticket for each unit of KB ye manage to steal from brigands or barbarians. One random ticket drawn will win a stocked war brig. See the linked post for details.

Re: Beta Blast 3! 2006.10.14, 7am-9pm(?)

Me flaggies are still gathering goodies to stuff the Treasure Sloop with, but I thought I'd tempt ye with what we had gathered so far. The booty chest will have 50K in it o course, at least at the start of each run. Anything that we only have one or two of will go into the sloop from the beginning. We will put 75-80% of each of the nicest commodities in the sloop from the beginning, then fill the hold with less expensive items. For the second run, everything nice (that's left) goes into the hold, then top off with whatever is handy.

one unit gold ore
5+ units of each of the following
hemp oil
rum
various sizes of cannonballs
yarrow
weld
elderberries
cowslip
lorandite
tellurium
cubanite
serandite
papagoite
sincosite
various colors of fine cloth
krakens blood
various colors of paint
red enamel
green dye
assorted fruits

Re: Beta Blast 3! 2006.10.14, 7am-9pm(?)

Congrats to the only ship that managed to beat the treasure sloop in the first round: Beartooth in Lunar Rogues! There were at least two battles where twas very very close tho.

Lunar Rogues won 25684 poe and 247 units of goods, including:
3 units of Green paint.
3 units of Elderberries.
3 units of Cowslip.
3 units of Cubanite.
2 units of Fine navy cloth.
1 units of Bananas.
4 units of Grog.
2 units of White paint.
2 units of Fine red cloth.
2 units of Lime paint.
2 units of Hemp oil.
2 units of Serandite.
106 units of Small cannon balls.
2 units of Tan cloth.
20 units of Medium cannon balls.
1 units of Hemp.
3 units of Durians.
1 units of Lorandite.
4 units of Tellurium.
3 units of Red paint.
1 units of Papagoite.
2 units of Fine pink cloth.
2 units of Maroon paint.
5 units of Passion fruit.
1 units of Kraken's blood.

and a bit of rum and shot from the booty chest.

Please note that the highest SF rating on the Spellbinding Beta was GM. About half of us were ocean-wide Renowned at SF, one Master, one Distinguished. None of us had alts with higher SF standings. About half the battles we had 7 aboard, the other half 6. We *did* discuss teaming strategies ahead of time, which I'm sure helped. Every one of us was an experienced pirate too. Since shooting wasn't allowed, this was basically a brawl situation.

(no, we didn't *let* Beartooth win. At least I don't think so - I was busy setting up the rumble tourney at the time, so me alt Rylla wasn't aboard)

No we didn't let him win. I will say though it was right after 2 people on our ship changed and we didn't have our strategy reworked. Bear's team proved to be the better melee fighters.

Our apologies for the Autograph Hunt results not being posted yet. Verification of the autographs is taking longer than anticipated. We will post the results to this thread once we know who won.

Certainly. I'm sure all of us who collected autographs can produce chat logs of the events.

So sad for those I saw "teaming". I'm glad yer putting all this effort into keeping the game fair and fun.

All the royals/titleds kept lists. The trouble is that some of them were very very late remembering to send their lists to Jacine. jacine just got home from work a few minutes ago.

I didn't keep a chat log as the thought never occured to me...I took the time to list every person and what they said in my email thinking that was all that may be necessary. I have faith in the Royals and Titled's and I am still crossing my fingers.
