Upcoming Events

Post by fingers630 » 2013-04-25

Just wanted to put up a mini calendar for upcoming events and what I have planned. I am not sure who is running the May Campout but if someone informs me, I can certainly amend the list. As always, we will need elders for the events, so if you feel inclined, please see me after check in to get the ball rolling. I have asked Kai to bust out the Can for some good ole fashioned Kicking on June 2nd. I am also working out the rules for a 2 team fortification battle with modified adventure rules during our Bizarro Day at Oregon Ridge. Suggestions are always welcome.

Fingers
Event Marshall Type Guy


May 5th (Patux)- Commoner's Tourney (Hosted by Kai), 5 Man Team Fight, Two Teams. In addition Bendore vs Cailen in ring match.

May 17-19 (Reunion)- Campout. Cas and Thrush will be running a CTF on Saturday

June 2nd (Redland)- Goblin New Year's Fair! (Hosted by LOAP)*

June 16th (Oregon Ridge)- Capture the Flag Fortification Battle (Hosted by Fingers), Two Teams *Bizarro Day*, Adventure Rules in Effect

June 30th (Somewhere)- Preadventure*, Two Teams (adventure rules in effect)

July 12-14 (Reunion)- Campout (Hosted by King Cailen)
*Edited 6/2 as LOAP is running an event on that day. I will ask Kai to bring "the can" to both 6/2 and 6/16 events for some kicking, should it be desired.

Love it. Minus the fact that we don't have a host for May.

Honestly no one hosting for the may campout might be a good thing. People might have to actually rp with each other and I don't know...fight each other as well.

If it is ok with the Board of Directors I will be running the July campout. I have that full time off to attend the whole weekend which is rare.

My thoughts as Thrush has noted is that we are actually having too many things going on at normal battle days. There has been little interest in the Island mod so far - so using that as a base will run a campout off it. Every few hours a creature mod will be run with prizes - lots of fighting - and will incorporate other things in it as well. This way it can be set up one time and played with a lot. And should be a good time.

for prizes I am thinking :

outside of what most people tend to do there will be group mods set up in one place - with maby every 2 hours a "creature" in one of the situations... I am thinking of taking some chairs and carving in the symbols for the past kings - then have those on the monster island that can be won by what ever team wins the island... they will be painted gold or other metals coloring and be darkon items meaning they can be taken - traded - sold - ect they will be like a seige weapon in that each chair has 2 parts ... each part takes two people to carry ... it takes 4 people to move the chair to assemble or disemble into the parts then 2 people each part to carry because they are "metal" and that metal will have a value --- also thinking of chairs for the 1st darkon countries like Ramen... ect ... maby in total with the three past kings and three old countries 6 chairs that would be 12 hours of prizes if one every 2 hours - and once they are in play people can struggle to keep them - find a buyer - put them in thier own camp and try to defend them ... ect :) kind of like 6 thrones... what does everyone think of this idea...?

what you think about that? --- also will be cool to maby have longer pit fights each night --- have it be a sort of battle weekend sort or weekend... plenty of fighting ... people trying to get the chairs from the winners... ect and am thinking the chairs will be perminant meaning they can be brought to any event and change hands... because like the relics they are in play when at events

Might I also recommended that you have a simple banner theft mechanic which earns countries points? I has gone by the wayside in recent years and would be appreciated I'm sure.

Agreed, banners being worth xxxx points and each relic being worth xxxx points and scoring them once every 2 hours or something... makes people fight each other. Especially if you ban teaming up.

And if you plan on limiting alliances, I would do it by # of participants. That way you arent per se "banning" alliances, however you keep teams of 50 people from forming up and marching around like loud ass idiots. This also allows smaller countries to team up with larger forces and not have to win itself.

How I would do it,, is (assuming check points for items) to set a limit of 35 people per alliance. This would accomodate even 2 large countries fighting together. then all points are split evenly amongst the countries during check in, even if country A decides "we want to give our points to country B" too bad. No point stacking for j00.

Sounds good to me! Of course, if a single country actually fields with more than 35 people, they are exempt from that rule--they just can't ally with anyone else.

Bump. Updated CTF at the Campout hosted by Cas/Thrush, updated 6/2 event to Goblin New Year event hosted by LOAP. If Kai can bring the can to 6/2 and 6/16 events, we will have it available for either/or.

Sorry, Cas and I suck at RP, but we're good at fighting, so you'll have to entertain yourself with heavy fighting and little RP... Also, it was kinda last minute...
