Out fer Blood! Oct 14, Noon-6pm Pacific

This event is part of the Beta Blast .

Out fer Blood!

What: pillaging contest
Where: start and end on Beta (Midnight)
Date: Saturday Oct 14
Time: any time between Noon-6pm Pacific
For whom: all Midnight pirates
By whom: Lordkalvan, Grapeape, and their Water Sleeps flaggies
Fee: Free!
Prizes:
  • Grand prize - War Brig, The Detestable Clownfish, stocked with 333 units of fine rum and 333 medium cannonballs. If ye don't like the name, ye can trade it for any premade war brig at Revenge of the Ship.
  • Fast blood prizes - 16 brass knuckles, 16 fish

Details:
Yarrr!!!! What better way to celebrate two full years of colonization on Beta than some swashbuckling blood hunting? I'll tell ye what's better! Over and above getting all the poe and KB and just plain fun of tackling Imperial brigands, having a chance to win prizes on top of it!

Come to Beta on Saturday Oct 14. Ye will need a ship in port at Beta and a crew o course, but yer choice on what size and how many people. If ye don't have a ship in Sapphire, we can chart it fer ye, or ye can borrow a ship from us .

No preregistration needed!

Before pillaging: Any time between Noon and 6pm Pacific send a tell to Grapeape. Grapeape will give ye the name of which judge to job to yer ship. That judge will verify that the booty chest is empty and that the ship is in port at Beta.

Pillaging: Pillage in any direction ye likes fer as long as ye like up until the contest window closes. To qualify fer the war brig, ye must be back in port at Beta by the close of the contest window at 6pm Pacific.

No PvP! If somebody attacks ye, either go fer disengage, lose, or port again immediately and get a judge to verify that ye don't have any KB in yer booty chest from the PvP win.

After ye get Blood: When ye have some blood and port at Beta again, job one of our event judges aboard yer ship to check yer booty chest afore ye divvy. Lordkalvan or Grapeape will post winner of the war brig to this thread, with contact information on how to claim that prize if ye win it.

Going back out: Aye, ye can divvy after the judge sees the KB in yer booty chest. If ye plan to go out fer more blood, then the judge has to verify that the KB is gone from yer booty, or else just tell him that ye aren't going to divvy yet (so that when ye port later with 2 in booty chest it just counts as one additional instead of 2 more).

Prizes:
1. We have 16 brass knuckles and 16 fish. While supplies last, any ship that snags KB gets one brass knuckles or fish for each person aboard who wants one, to a maximum of 7 per ship. Aye, ye have to port at Beta and job a judge aboard - but ye can go out again without doing a divvy if ye like.

2. For each unit of KB ye snag from the brigands or barbarians, ye get one ticket for a chance at the war brig. At 6pm Pacific we will verify our records, put tickets into a hat, and draw one ticket. That ticket wins the war brig. Aye, a real hat, with real pieces of paper.

What to do with the KB?
Ye get to keep yer KB o course. The easiest thing is to just sell it at Beta. At the time of the contest, we promise that there will always be at least one vendor buying KB at 7.5K (no matter how many other units of KB have been sold already that day).

Notes on Sapphire pillaging
In my experience, the toughest current route in Sapphire is Beta to Iris; sometimes the very first brigand that I spawn is yellow on that route. Verdant Atoll to Horseshoe or to Uxmal usually spawns greens at least a couple of times afore the yellows start. I've seen greenish blue brigands spawned on Beta to Remora and on Beta to Verdant Atoll (as in, sometimes I get attacked by a light blue the first battle or two when pillaging those routes).

Yet another event sponsored by Water Sleeps, proud owners of the island of Beta since Oct 2004. Captains, if ye are looking fer a fun, active flag fer yer crew, please consider Water Sleeps.

Re: Out fer Blood! Oct 14, Noon-6pm Pacific

One hour into Out for Blood, and we just have two ships entered. There be almost 5 more hours, so it's not too late to enter yer ship. If only one ship snags blood from the brigands, then it gets the war brig plus a bludgeon fer each member of the crew.

Send a tell to Grapeape to register.

Re: Out fer Blood! Oct 14, Noon-6pm Pacific

We had three ships vying for the war brig. Bluefinn, Bootlicker, and Jedoy all took ships out for blood. Jedoy was the only one to win blood, therefore winning the war brig for himeslf as well as the bludgeons he and his crew received. Congrats to Jedoy, Lerie, Blythekidd, Pythor, Karateboi, Semajames, and Degrosse on their winning run.

Thanks to all who made not only this, but all of Beta Blast III, not only a success, but a wonderfull time.
