The Official "Sloops in the Shadows-Summer 2010" Ocean-Wide Event Aug.27th, 2010!


Avast!
OS's very own Thard and Poemistress were bored recently and decided to go out on the beautiful warm waters of the Midnight Ocean for a lil one on one pvp against each other. In the course of their shoot-happy antics, they claim that they "accidentally" hit a ship that just "happened" to be passing by causing the pirates on board the ship, to panic, jump overboard and leave the ship deed behind. According to Thard and Poemistress this unfortunate incident occurred NINE (9) times in exactly the same way. Vestic, who is skeptical of EVERYTHING, notices the evil grin on Thard's face that only appears when Thard has outmaneuvered an enemy ship, blasted the ship full of holes and emerged victorious. He also notices that Poemistress is saying "Rock on!" more than usual...a sign that she, too, has had a good day at sinking some enemy ships. Vestic points these things out to Annmoo. Annmoo agrees with Vestic and does her best to pursuade everyone to do the right thing by giving the ships back before Rhapzody finds out and forces everyone to hug, eat cookies and read more of her long-winded posts in crew issues. Fearing the length of Rhapz's next post in the crew issues, the boom-boom twins fessed up handed over the deeds of the ships and vowed to play "nicer" next time. Djlucky who was present the entire time, yet oblivious to what was actually going on, only hears the words "beautiful warm water of the Midnight Ocean" and asks if Mermaids were involved. Upon hearing the whole story and wanting to return the ships to their rightful owners, Rhapz smiles and says..."I have an idea...."

After several edits later, Rhapz enters into the Midnight Events Forum and posts the following:

To All the Fine Pirates of the Midnight Ocean:
"A bunch of pirate-less sloops have "mysteriously" fallen into the hands of the Ocean's Shadow crew and we would now like to return them to their rightful owners. However, seeing as how we are all a bunch of scurvy rogues, bandits, scallywags and wenches and everyone will claim that the ships belong to them, we decided to let all the mates of Midnight Ocean decide fair and square who these ships belong to via a series of tournaments befitting a pirate of the highest...errr lowest standards! So come and join us on a hot summer evening on Aug, 27th, 2010 at 4pm pst (game-time) and help us to find rightful owners of these lost ships!"
Piratey Regards to ye all,
Rhapzody/Captain of the awesome Ocean's Shadow crew


Thus, the birth of "Sloops in the Shadow's II-Summer 2010"!



Event Description:

*This is essentially a "local-only" tourney style event and consists of 3 "rounds".
*The first "round" will have 4 back to back tourneys with the 1st place winners receiving a sloop.
*The top 2 winners of each tourney in "round" 1 will then advance to the 2nd "round".
*A total of 8 pirates will be advanced to "round" 2 and given 2k each to play in the tourney with the 1st place winner receiving 16k and the 2nd place winner receiving a sloop.
*The top 4 of "round" 2 will then advance to the 3rd and final "round" to battle it out for the grand prize: A WB.

Event Guidelines:
1-If you are one of the lucky top 2 winners of a tourney in 'round' 1 who get to advance to the 2nd round, please be generous and don't enter any of the other "tourneys" in "round" 1 or use alts. This event is meant to be fun for everyone... not just for 2 or 3. To enter another tourney as an alt or as yourself after I have asked you to please refrain from doing so would be unsportsmanlike and would dampen the spirit of this event. Please don't do it.
2-The only other thing that I ask is that everyone have fun and giggle and be happy and to enjoy all the free stuff that my crew has worked so hard to give away to you all.
3-Eat lots of cookies!!! =)

Event Details:
Event will either take place on one of our crew WB's or our crew house. All tourneys will be "local" only...except for the post-event tourney which will be ocean-wide.

=============================================================
FAQ's:
Q) Your event starts at 4pm and I cant log on to the game until 5pm. Can I still participate in the events?
A) You can only log in late and participate in any of the tourneys in "round" 1 that haven't already started. After "round" 1 is finished and the top 8 winners from this round have advanced to "round" 2, then the event is closed to new entrants.

Q) Does it cost anything to enter any of the competitions?
A) NO! All the events are FREE OF CHARGE to anyone who wants to participate!

Q) I'm not subbed. Will I still be eligible to participate?
A) Yes & No. Yes=To the Treasure Drop tourney and to the Poker tourney. Unfortunately, there are some tourneys that will not be open for non-subbers and you will not be eligible to participate. HOWEVER...if you are one of the top 2 winners of the TD tourney in "round" 1...and then advance to the 2nd "round" and are one of the top 4 winners of the Poker tourney you will advance to the final "round" which WILL be a TD tourney. =)

Q) What will happen if I win one of the 4 tourneys in "round" 1 but have to log off before "round" 2 begins?
A) Ok, this is a bit sticky, but in all fairness and to keep the event from being prolonged into anther day or even into another week, if you win one of the tourneys in "round" one and then log off and arent available for the next "round", then the 3rd place winner of the tourney you won will advance to the final "round". So if you win one of the "rounds", make sure you make yourself available for the next "round". (So, to all you 3rd place winners in "round"1, it may be a good idea for you all to stick around because you may advance to "round" 2. =) )

Q)Will there be "whisking" involved?
A) Just once...when we job you to our crew. =) *winks*
