Championship Games: Race Around the World!

This is a team race that will combine the tumble race and the ship race into one mad dash across and around Sapience!

Each Team has their champion competitor and a supporting crew.
Each Team must list who their champion is.
Only one Championship points competitor permitted per ship.
Each Team must list their crew mates.
Each Team must list the shipID upon the ship they will use to sail.
Please send signups via letter to Tharos.

Teams may use any ship type, but the size of your team you can have aboard will be affected by this choice!

Cutter: 4 person team
Strider: 7 person team
Galleon: 12 person team

These numbers do include the champion and are the maximum number of members.

If you want to be a team of one, that is absolutely fine!

Your ship must be docked at Tasur'ke prior to the start of the race.

Shipreturn will be disabled for the duration of the race.

All Champions and crew begin at Thraasi harbour and will tumble-race across the continent to the finish line in Tasur'ke where the sailing portion of the race begins.

A ship cannot cast off until the entire team is aboard.

The finish line is completing docking in Thraasi harbour.

Only ships and crews involved in the event may interfere with one another, fighting between racing ships is acceptable.

Each ship may choose whether they wish to take the open waters south around the continent, or brave the chops north into the frigid Borean ocean.

If you sink you can start on another ship in Tasur'ke harbour (provided you have one), or your race is over.

Your progress towards the destination will still count, so if everyone sinks, you may still be in a points winning position.

Championship points and credits will be awarded to the top ten finishers

See HELP TUMBLERACE for all details of what to expect here, the sailing portion will be entirely freeform and will NOT have the shiprace markers/finish/start lines.

Any circumvention of the rules will disqualify all aboard.

UPCOMING has the exact date and time!

Championship Games: XP contest

Hi everyone!

Carrying on our Championship Games preview series, today I have info on the XP Event!

This XP Event will be a 6 hour total hunting time which can be undertaken during the XP Event windows scheduled on UPCOMING.

You do NOT have to complete all 6 hours in one sitting, but you cannot hunt for less than 1 hour total at any one time.

This time around, points awarded will vary based on the continent or plane you are on and roughly correspond to the level of danger you are in from other players while hunting, with higher danger being more rewarding.

These modifiers are an adjustment to base point value and will show on SURVEY while the event is active:

Mainland Sapience: 125%
Other continents that are not outer islands: 80%
Outer Islands / Diving: 30%
Annwyn or the Underworld: 150%
Any other plane: 100%

As an example, if a denizen is typically worth 40 points (a sample value), then killing it on mainland Sapience will award 50 points, but an outer island would make it 13 points.

Syntaxes for the event are below:

XPEVENT JOIN will mark you as a participant and will begin your first hour-long hunting window.

XPEVENT ENTER will start one of your successive, hour-long bashing windows.

NOTE: This will be for hour 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6. Please use JOIN for the first hour.

XPEVENT WHO will lists players who are currently using their XPEVENT window.

NOTE: Anyone on XPEVENT WHO is OPEN PK!

See HELP XPEVENT for more details, and happy preparations!
