Details and Instructions on the Event

Who: Two teams (up to 2 flags each) and up to two games.
Where: TBD (We can decide the day of)
When: May 30, 4:30 PM PDT
Prize: TBD - (May be withdrawn if problems arise)

Registration: Captains please register for your team here. Depending on how many people registering we can even do more than one of these at a time. Registration will be on a first come first served basis.

Registration Deadline: Saturday May 29, Midnight PDT
- We may accept one more after the deadline.

Registration Information:
- Captain name (should have the ability to Flag broadcast, or have someone around who can.
- Flag Name (up to two flags)
- Approximate size of team (just a rough rough estimate, I know it's impossible to know exactly)

Damsels needed: We'll need two Damsels per game, preferably someone who is not associated with either flag. Again this will be on a first come basis, with preference to unallied pirates. Damsels should have achieved at least the rank of officer in a crew. Damsels will be responsible for helping to score, so keep in mind it's not a do-nothing position. Please read Damsel information before volunteering!

Captain Information:
- Have several ships supplied and ready for the event, however, because we do not yet know the location I will whisk them to your "home" island. (I will also whisk one other ship for the occasion if ye want to have a "supply" ship) PLEASE have all ships at the same location so they are easy to whisk back.
- The exact number of ships will be determined once we see how many people are participating, between 5 and 10 cutters.
- Report to Artemis on May 30 at 4:00PM PDT for ship whisks and to determine the playing fields.
- Know what method you wish to use for the other team to "capture the damsel"

Disclaimers:
- Statements made in this post overrule statements made in the linked pose (feel free to point out differences so everyone is aware.)
- Due to the possibility of Blockades I realize teams may have to withdraw from the game.
- I reserve the right to make last minute changes as far as opponents, islands, damsels or anything else.

I will propose my self as a damsel. I'm fair and honest. And I really don't care about flag alliances for something like this.

I know it's a popular position, but I'd like to volunteer for damsel as well. Get in line, I suppose. :)

Damsels or team Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I most likely won't be able to subscribe again by the time the event starts so i would like to volunteer myself for a damsel. Put me as a back-up since i might not be able to be a damsel even.

But then again, i'm guessing about 200 people have volunteered to be a damsel, so.....

whatever

All these people wanting to be rescued... and always a damsel, never a dame?
I think yer teams are going to need frigate or galleon class ships just to carry all the damsels, assuming that they're in the mass-rescue business and not just out to try and win the event!

Hope it goes well; I'll read all about it next week.

Well, while we had many damsels the teams part seemed a bit lacking. I was still trying to run the event, but things got a tad busy, sorry! I'll try to have everything all set for next time. I already have several cutters renamed and stocked.

Anyway, next time I shall be better prepared! And I hope we can spark a bit more interest in it as well.

Part of the problem may just be the size of the event.

To participate, and people even 5 cutters, requires a minimum of 35 people, 50 preferred. Then add the damsel's guard, you have a HUGE people need.

I don't think it's hard to get 100 people to play in this. I think it's hard to get two existing flags that large to commit all that many people.

Maybe you could have some temporary flags we could job for, or join?

We just need two sides capable of fielding all the ships, jobbers are just a broadcast away... Although part of the strategy that I've thought up requres some full cutters and some empty... (anyone for sneaking through enemy lines undermanned? *cough* Blackshipped *cough*)
