Tynian: Quest: Friday 2003-03-07, Saturday
Sat Mar 1 16:46:27 2003
To: all
The quest will start on Friday when I get around to starting it, and
will last for exactly one day. During that time, the 'alljust',
'free20', 'noeqloss' and 'nosafe' options will be set. See HELP GAME
SETTINGS (when 3.110 goes live) for what this means.

The quest itself is pretty simple. Mage mobs will be trying to kill
you. You will be trying to kill mage mobs. Other players will likely
be trying to kill you. You may kill other players.

The object is two fold. The first is NOT TO DIE. You die, you're done
with the quest. The second is to kill the hunting mage mobs. Doing so
will get you points.

For a prize, you must score in the top 3, must have been online at least
4 hours during the quest period, score at least 1000 points, and must
*not* have died. If there is anyone like that by the end of the contest,
the prizes are as follows:

1st: +5 damage on body dragon scale
2nd: +4 damage on body dragon scale
3rd: +3 damage on body dragon scale

To participate, you MUST use the 'signup' command to sign up prior to
the quest beginning. NOTE that we may do a sample run of this quest
tonight (Saturday) or tomorrow, just so people can get a feel for it.
I'll post a note when the real quest signup is available.

Anyone can sign up, but this quest is clearly geared to higher level
characters. Lower level character will be at a "slight" disadvantage. ;-)

Note that the new game settings should make for a relatively safe quest,
but they have yet to be used in the live environment. If something
should go wrong with them, PLEASE DO NOT ABUSE THE PROBLEM. For
instance, if someone dies, and their corpse does not appear in their
inventory, don't loot the corpse! cmdlog the person with the problem,
post a note, and help them out.
