Shipwrightery Bake-Off. Win a parrot!

When: Sunday, October 29th, 8pm, PST
Host: Minthe

Note: Daylight Saving Time ends on October 29 in the United States.

Rules:
Joining
  • You must log on a character who is ranked Novice/Able at the puzzle. You may play the puzzle as much as you desire provided your character remains Novice/Able.
  • Application will begin an hour before the designated start-time for the bake-off, at 7pm, PST.
  • Send Minthe a tell with the name of your main pirate.
  • Take off Do Non Disturb.
  • Be patient. Do not send multiple tells.
  • You will be jobbed aboard the Shipwrightery Waiting Room.
  • You must remain aboard the vessel until cleared to leave. If you leave the vessel you will be disqualified.
  • You must remain jobbed into Minthe's crew for the duration of the contest. If you leave, you will be disqualified.

    Stat checking
  • Fifteen minutes before the start time (7:45pm, PST), jobbing will cease.
  • This time will be used to check the stats of everyone on board.
  • All members should take part in this checking.
  • When you check a player say, "[name] is too experienced" if they are not Novice/Able.
  • Minthe will double-check any mentioned and confirm.
  • Any players who do not have Novice/Able will be disqualified.

    Process
  • At the start-time, Minthe will say "Go".
  • Should anyone say "Go" or otherwise indicate that it is time to begin before Minthe, that person will be immediately disqualified and will likely be banned from all future bake-offs. Contestants are often jumpy and may not see who says what in their effort to begin quickly.
  • Leave the vessel and travel to a shipyard.
  • Play the shipwrightery puzzle repeatedly. Do the best you can.
  • Every time you advance an Ocean-wide rank, send Minthe a tell stating the rank you have achived. I will check this, note the time, and send a confirmation response.
  • In case there are multiple tells in a short time, your time will be logged even if the response is delayed.
  • Do not send tells when you increase in experience.
  • Continue this for one hour. Minthe will periodically broadcast the amount of time remaining.
  • When the hour has elapsed, Minthe will broadcast that time is up. You may then stop puzzling.
  • Any puzzles not completed when time is called will not count.
  • Reboard the Shipwrightery Waiting Room for declaration of winners and prize distribution.

    Winners
  • The winner will be the player who achieved the highest rank first.
  • Players will be ranked by how quickly they achieved the ranks.

    Prizes
  • First Place: A Navy/Violet Parrot; A Fancy Ribbon Trinket.
  • Second Place: An Ancient Calendar or a Golden Ticket for Booty or No Booty; A Fancy Ribbon Trinket.
  • Third Place: A Tortoise or a Golden Ticket; A Fancy Ribbon Trinket.
  • 4th-5th: A Golden Ticket; A ribbon trinket
  • 6th-10th: A ribbon trinket.
  • 11th-15th: A starfish.

    Re: Shipwrightery Bake-Off. Win a parrot!

    Yay, a shipwright bake-off! Shame it's 4am Monday morning for me though :(

    Good luck to everyone who enters.

    Edit: I know this is said every time (and I don't mean to sound ungrateful) - but is there any chance future events could be run on a Saturday or something? That way it's still the weekend for most of the rest of the world?

    I really appreciate the effort you go to, to host these events Bia, and again, I don't want to sound ungrateful.

    Edit 2: I've just looked at the times of the other bake-offs going ahead in the next few weeks:

    - Hunter (alchemy) 7pm
    - Cobalt (shipwrightery) 8pm
    - Sage (shipwrightery) 5pm
    - Viridian (shipwrightery) 5pm

    Maybe also in future they could be staggered so they emcompasse the whole 24 hour time frame? That way everyone gets a fair chance at a time they can make without it necessarily being on their home ocean?

    Please don't misconstrue this to be tarting about the events - really I am grateful to you Bia.

    Re: Shipwrightery Bake-Off. Win a parrot!

    Sounds fun! Just one question... will shipwright be free that day or do we need to create a new subscriber pirate? Thanks.



    Yppedia answered my question for me. It will not be free on Sunday so say goodbye to one of your alts. =)

    Congratulations to all the winners!

    Thanks for the fun event Bia! Especially liked this kind of layout, because it doesn't take 3+ hours to get through it :-)
