Billions of Blistering Blue Barnacles! Bake-Offs! Reply to this Post

What: Old-Style All-On-A-Ship Sailing Bake-Off
Dates: Sunday July 15 (Cerulean) ; Sunday July 22 (Meridian) ; Sunday July 29 (Emerald)
Time: 12:30 PM game time (use /info to find out game time)

Here's how it will work.



    * At 12:30 PM game time, I will put an event whisk up on the Noticeboard. These appear on the Events tab of the noticeboard at any colonized island.
    * The event whisk goes to a bake-off ship. You do not need to be jobbed into the crew to take part.
    * I will not broadcast the event unless participation is much lower than expected.
    * The ship will have plenty of stations for the competition puzzle. Find a station as quickly as possible so that you are not hunting for one when we start. There are stations all over the ship, including throughout the main deck, down in the hold, and in the cabins.
    * Stay quiet and do not spam. Keep chat and greetings to tells.
    * I will keep the whisk up on the board for approximately 15 minutes, or until the ship is full, whichever is the earlier. Once the whisks have gone from the noticeboard, entrance to the event is closed. Be careful not to "fall off" the ship. Participants will not be jobbed into the crew to get them back on board.
    * Once the whisking time is over, or when the ship is full, (whichever is the earlier), I will start to give instructions for the bake-off.
    * From this point, spamming or unnecessary chatter will cause you to be planked.
    * Once I have run through the instructions, the bake-off will begin.
    * In these bake-offs, the contest will consist of a single 30-minute puzzling session. We will set sail, engage with another ship, and stay in sea battle for 30 minutes. We will then disengage and return to port.
    * Competitors must be on a sailing station from the beginning of the puzzling period, and must stay on station throughout the contest, until we reach the island at the end. You may dismiss and re-take the station if you need to, but you may not stay off-station. This includes pirates who disconnect, who will get about one minute to return to station. In order to avoid confusion, anyone remaining off-station after a warning tell will be planked.
    * The duty report at the island (not the one at disengage) defines the winners.
    * There will be prizes offered to the top 12 entrants. Each of the top 12 finishers on the duty report chooses one prize from the list including a colored familiar, rare furniture and trinkets.
    * Prizewinners must stay on board. If you are not on board for prize distribution, you forfeit your prize, and the next best finisher is added to the list of prizewinners.
    * Prizes will be distributed immediately after the bake-off.


Prizes
There are 12 prizes available and each prizewinner gets one prize and winners will take their pick in order (first place chooses first, followed by second, etc).

    * Coloured Familiar (Colour and Type chosen by winner. Restricted colours or types are not valid.)
    * Tan Monkey
    * Sleeping Pig or Piglet
    * Sleeping Tortoise or Turtle
    * Scarab rare furniture
    * Stone Figurine rare furniture
    * Deed to a Wrapped Gold / Gold / Gold Sloop
    * Golden Piggy Bank
    * Gold orchid x 4


Good luck!

Awkwardly mistaking 2 similar but different chat filters. Well, there goes what I said, and it was so clever, too.

BAKEOFFS, FINALLY, MY GAWSH, I WANT ONE!

Sailing too! Something I'm okay at! :D

Is it just me, or is a gold/gold/gold wrapped sloop worth a lot more than the sleeping/ancient furniture? :P

it does say
 
Competitors must be on a sailing station from the beginning of the puzzling period


so that is both Sailing and Rigging right?

This is clearly just sailing. If the event were to continue onto other puzzles, the rigging bake-off would be exclusively rigging and not sailing.

Usually there's some caveat in the rules which points out that despite sailing and rigging both being accessed by the same ship icon, only one of the puzzles will be tested by the bake-off; the other will give no prizes. Perhaps this rule can be inserted back in?

One question though, only one ship is hosting the competition - the other is just there for the "battle". Correct me if I'm wrong

This bake-off is for the Sailing puzzle only. Anyone attempting to rig the competition will walk away sorely disappointed.

There will only be one bake-off vessel so watch the Notice Board early to secure your spot!

As for future bake-offs I would certainly love to host them but at the same time I'm not able to make any promises or reveal specific plans. There are a number of factors that need to be considered so for fans of other puzzles I would suggest an outlook of cautious optimism!

Argh. You host the best events when I'm in classes. :c

And it's in sailing too! I just...bah.

I might be able to attempt on this really awesome Win 2000 they let us use, but it can hardly play a song on Pandora without lagging, poor thing.

Good luck tomorrow Cerulean guys!

Unfortunetly; it's a two-week intensive.

If there's a good turnout maybe Prometheus will schedule another one that I can go to. c: /a girl can hope

Shameless self-plug/tutorial - I recorded my screen during the bake-off, so for those who want to see how exactly I played for the entire duration, the video is available here.

Also there were some chuckle-worthy plankings in the chat for those who need further incentive. :P
