17.1.3 THE GAME OF FROG BAITING
When a God begins a game of Frog Baiting, you will be able to JOIN BAITGAME to start playing. Note that once you have done this, you will lose most of your skills until the end of the event. The exceptions are swimming, and squinting. Once everyone who is going to play has joined, the God will give you the opportunity to run around the Arena and find your starting spot. When the game begins, a random participant will receive a large, dead fly, which he will not be able to get rid of in any manner but either giving or throwing it to another adventurer. A giant, awfully hungry frog will be released into the Arena, and it will go after whoever has the fly. Sounds fairly easy? The catch is that you can only move about once per second once the game has begun. Once the frog catches someone with the fly, it will messily devour the unlucky holder of the fly, in its attempts to taste the juicy goodness of said fly. The unlucky holder will, at that point, be feeling extraordinarily unhappy, due to two facts: 1) He will be in horrendous pain due to the digestive juices of the giant frog, and 2) He will be out of the game. Despite all this though, you will lose no experience or anything else for being eaten by the frog. The last person to survive the onslaught of the giant frog will win. EVENTSTATUS, or simply ES, will show you who is in the game. Once you are out, or if you merely wish to be a spectator, you may go to the Spectator Stands southwest of the Arena Staging area, and watch the action.
