Re: Ultimate Scavenger Hunt- Win Black and Gold Prizes

I have a question. Will any of these scavenger items, without extensive preparation for anything, be required to spend a large sum of money on? I'm just wondering if I'm gonna have to leach my friends for PoE.

Edit: oh, and if one of the "finding a pirate" scavenger items applies to yourself, can ye use yerself, or must ye find another?

Re: Ultimate Scavenger Hunt- Win Black and Gold Prizes

This is the "Ultimate" Scavenger Hunt. Most of the items on the list will be rare, expensive, or otherwise difficult to obtain. You are going to get more benefit from asking you hearties to loan you *items* than loan you PoE. Buying everything on the list will not be a feasible option.

And yes, if a "find a pirate" applies to you, feel free to use yourself as the item.

Re: Ultimate Scavenger Hunt- Win Black and Gold Prizes

And we're off!

Here is a prettier copy of the "Items to Find" Scoresheet. Judges will be printing out a copy for each participant. Scavengers are welcome to do the same; its a good place to keep track of what you've found, who you're borrowed from, etc.



In case anyone is having trouble seeing the picture; here's a direct link: http://img389.imageshack.us/img389/6650/ultscavscorecardxk6.th.png

I had fun except Leif kept following me around and bugging the same people I was bugging. In the end, he still placed higher than me! But Fey awesome job! You get a cookie. And to all the volunteers out there, whether you woke up at 3 am or not :P, this was truly fun!

/me runs off to gather more hearties, since mine hate me now....

Re: Ultimate Scavenger Hunt- Win Black and Gold Prizes

I'm glad everyone had a good time. I think my favorite part was watching the war declarations against my event flag roll in. I always wanted someone to declare war on me :-)

And Trollsb, I will work on that scoring list for you.. tomorrow. Tonight I guarantee I'd manage to mess it up.

And YAY! Event is over; now I can move on to my wonderful, beautiful, holiday avatar by ShortyJack I won in the Midnight Birthday Bash.

Re: Ultimate Scavenger Hunt- Win Black and Gold Prizes

Thank you for the wonderful event. I had a great time! It would be interesting to see what items people found or didn't find.

Re: Ultimate Scavenger Hunt- Win Black and Gold Prizes

Okay, here's the score list I promised. I am including everyone who brought back at least one item. Remember this was out of a possible 60 points.

Results
Jenfa------------- 52
LJ------------------48
Yellowshanks--40
Daleen-----------34
Leif----------------32
Shortyjack-------28
Mogget-----------26
Lunamyst-------23
Corynn-----------13
Seroled----------13
Trollsb------------7
Junglebob------11
Ceylon------------5
Jedoy--------------5
Kristiwomack---1
Nealnearing----1
Strength----------1


A few other notes:
--2 items were found by no one: pink kilt (good) and white skull mug
-- most commonly found item was 2 skulls, followed by the black-painted sloop
-- more people were able to push through a war declaration in 2 hours (4) than could find a nameless black cat (2)
-- 3 more war dec's got voted through after the contest ended. Good job to whoever, even if they came a bit late.


Gauging Interest
I do feel bad for all the people who wanted to participate but had flag/alliance duties that kept them at Eta instead yesterday. I'm toying with the idea of running a less-extreme "make-up" scavenger hunt late this month. It would be mostly for fun; I am kinda broke after this one, so I wouldn't be able to manage such nice prizes, and the turnaround is too short to ask for OM help. Would anyone be interested?

Re: Ultimate Scavenger Hunt- Win Black and Gold Prizes

It was funny. LJ sent me a message asking if I was busy, and could they borrow the uninscribed teddy bear I had. I was XO at that moment in mid blockade.

I really felt crappy that I couldn't give it to her, but I'm only a roomate at my home. I should have made vampy roomate my alt before she quit playing. *shakes fists*

I am very sorry, LJ. I felt guilty I couldn't help out for the rest of that round.

Re: Ultimate Scavenger Hunt- Win Black and Gold Prizes

Not that it actually matters in terms of prizes but i should have had 7 points

I got the 2 skulls (1), coin portrait (1), angel - meke chart (1), bone bludgeon (1), black/any sloop(1), and 10units of blood(2) on that same ship.

Oops! Sorry! I had all the judges send me itemized lists for each scavenger and then I put them all into a spreadsheet yesterday so I could figure out things like "what noone found". There are probably quite a few small mistakes in my spreadsheet. The actual winners were announced prior to my booch, so they aren't affected.

For what it's worth, I corrected my spreadsheet :-)
