17.2.6 XP Events

What Is An XP Event?
XP Events (also known as Experience Contests) are usually long-term events
where adventurers compete individually, or by organisation. During these 
events, you gain experience via the slaying of denizens or quests.
Experience gain is tracked and ranked, and the person or organisation with 
the highest experience gain during the event is declared the winner. 

The names of those who have entered the XP Event will show up in the room in
bold cyan (#14 in CONFIG COLOUR).

Year 852 XP Event
Everything written above remains the case for this special XP event, but this
one 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.

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.
               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.

The information below about XP bonuses and PK remains accurate for this event.

NOTE: It is NOT possible to QUIT the Championship XP Event, however any active participation will time out after an hour, removing OPEN PK status.

Joining and Leaving
To join an XP Event, type XPEVENT JOIN. You will be FREE PK once you join,
so make sure that's really what you want to do!

To quit an XP Event, type XPEVENT QUIT. You can NOT rejoin the XP Event once
you have quit - you only get to join once. So make sure that's really what
you want to do!

If you QQ during an XP Event, you will remain in the XP Event when you
return to the realms. Once you have joined an XP Event, the only way to
quit it before it is over is to XPEVENT QUIT.

About Experience Gain
Bonuses to xp, such as the Effigy of Victory and the Mark bonuses,
will not count for the scoring in this event, although you will
personally still gain xp as normal, i.e. with the bonuses.

Free PK
All XP Events are FREE-PK, which means that you cannot lose or gain experience
via PK if you join an XP Event. 

Any person-specific combat advantages gained during an XP Event, as in any 
FREE-PK event, such as Vodun dolls, puppets, Death Tarot rubs, must be given 
up voluntarily at the end of the event. If you make us track you down,
you'll regret it, so put those humgiis to good use!

You CAN still lose experience via death to normal denizens (this excludes 
loyal entities, such as falcons, Baalzadeens, chaos entities, golems, et 
cetera). Any deliberate attempt to cause an XP event participant to die to a
normal denizen is forbidden. That means: don't lead aggressive denizens out
to kill people. Don't summon into city guards from outside city property.
