[Sage] Sailing Bakeoff - Win an octopus!

Date: Saturday, January 21
Time: 11am, PST
Event Host: Halosydne
Participation limit: 90


Rules:

Thirty minutes before the start of the event, Halosydne will begin jobbing entrants on board the grand frigate the Familiar Sailfish.

In each preliminary round, the ship will enter into a sea battle. Thirty players will take sailing stations to puzzle for the duration of the round. Preliminary rounds will last twenty-five turns, after which the ship will be grappled, and the top three sailors on that duty report will be eligible for the finals. The ship will port and deport to reset scores in between each of three rounds.

The nine finalists will switch to the Final Sailfish for the finals. This round will last 45 turns.

Disclaimer: In the event of lower than expected participation, the number of rounds may be reduced, likewise the number who continue on to the semi-finals and finals may change.

Prizes:

First prize: A green octopus!

Other places may choose a prize as follows (2nd and 3rd place may choose a prize from either tier, if they wish):

2nd and 3rd place may choose from:

1. Outfit: Any top, bottom, hat (except crown/tiara), boots. The outfit may have gold or black, but not both, and may not be solidly either color.
2. Tortoise
3. Fountain
4. Fancy Ribbon Trinket

2nd through 9th may choose from:

1. Outfit: Any top, bottom, hat (except crown/tiara), boots. Any colors excluding black and gold.
2. Sloop named <adjective> Sailfish
3. Portrait with an Oceanmaster of your choice (no Developers)
4. Ribbon Trinket

Good luck, mates!

Considering that On The Rocks consists largely of Vridianers who migrated there when Sage opened, I'd sure hope so.

Demonyaj, the difference between you and Shur is that you have people to blow your horn for you.
