SOSI'S TREASURE HUNT!
Upon opening the new server (which may be some time from now), I, Sosi, will be hosting the server's very first
TREASURE HUNT RACE!
I will be hiding a starting kit of goodies containing items such as[Valuble Gold Artifects, EXCLUSIVE Custom Armor, EXCLUSIVE new weapons, EXLUSIVE Rum flavors w/effects, Free Building Materials, Food, Kansha (The Battle Drug), extra starting money, free access to a new ship] AND MORE in a tomb underground with a red "X marks the spot" on an island somewhere.
Before the date of my opening event, you must organize yourselves into 3 or 4 teams (Me discluded) and pick any ship you want for your temporary teams as long as it's not taken. On opening day; you will all start at around one central island, facing the in direction (with your team) that you think the treasure is off in. When the whistle blows, you and your teammates must rush down the beach to your ship and set sail to where you think the treasure is! (or not) It's an open world hunt, so it could be anywhere in the whole map! So kind of like a hungergames feel with ships & an ocean but instead of a bloodbath for a victor, it's a bloodbath for booty! The hunt might take half the day, or it might go very fast. Prepare for both possibilites.
The Rules are as Follows:
The teams must be realitivley balanced. I'm trusting you with the responsibility of organizing your own crews so use the fourm to requrit & figure out who's going with who and what ship you guys are using. If we don't have many numbers, 2 or 3 people on a team is fine - but we'll see who shows up and final balance the teams from there.
From the time the starting bell rings, there is a two minute parlay. This means no fighting. After those two minutes are up, anything is fair game around the map. This is so the teams have enough time to get away and get started. If your team member is killed in ANY WAY, they will respawn at the starting grounds, so you have the option to go back for them or leave them stranded.
Teams may use any strategy they want to look for the treasure including splitting up but the treasure will have a button & pressureplate code that can only be opened by 3 people at once, so it's best to stick together, lest yull' be guardin yer found treasure until your teamates can get to you.
No ship ramming. This will probably disable both rammer and rammie from any more sailing and that's just no fun :( Cannons are definitley allowed, though teams will be given equal ammounts of ammo.
Each team-member will be given a kit based on a class he/she chooses. I don't know the classes yet.
No griefing or stealing another team's ship.
An individual cannot change the teams during the event. No double agenting!
No arguing. Beyond the rules stated, it's an anything goes challenge! Let's not end it with "I wouldve won if you hadn't blah". ANYTHING GOES so toughen up and go with what happens.
