Event E2/Proposal Lechian
While this entry did not make the shortlist, you are welcome to continue discussing & planning to run your event after the E2 event period. A new thread has been started for non-shortlist entry discussion.
|This is an entry for E2: The Event Event.|
A solo sloop race where coming in first does not matter, but the luck of the draw does!
|Audience||Solo sailors||Elapsed time||About 2 hours|
|Unit of Entry||Individuals||Participant Time||The full 2 hours as needed to complete the route|
|Expected Participation||Unlimited number of participants||Judging Time||Instanteous at the end of the race|
Solo sloops, consisting of the participant and 3 bots jobbed into a single crew for communications, will be required to run a course where along the way, they are expected to make 7 stops, buying a certain commodity at each stop, which in turn triggers an event person who has a deck of cards ready to draw one card, then send that person a tell with what their card is. Cards will be recorded on a list by the event people for verification. At the end of the race, after the 7th card is handed out, participants are to arrange their 7 cards into a 5-card hand following standard poker rules.
Winners determined by highest ranking poker hand. Also, order of finishing is taken for the first 3 finishers.
Best hand = War Brig, possibly "Gambling Spot". Also consolation prizes for the next 6 best hands in the form of gaming table set, trinkets(?), and PoE. First place finisher in the race will also receive a renamed sloop ("Hidden Ace"?), and next 2 finishers will also receive a trinket or gaming table.
Need 7 shop/stall owners to purchase commodities from who can also be the card-givers. Also need people to help with charting, if necessary.
Trinkets and renaming?
Trying to work around the possibility of duplicate hands, as this will be working from 7 full decks of cards. Maybe to use their finishing order as a tiebreaker in the event of duplicate hands?
