Lorna: Quest Note 1: Details
Thu Aug 12 15:31:53 1999
To: All
I'm running a quest to test your skill, luck, and knowledge. It is not easy.
Participation is strictly voluntary.

The quest is a combination of trivia and a scavenger hunt, and is a team
competition quest. Teams may be as small as two characters, and they may be
larger as well. In keeping with the alignment rules, collaboration between
goods and evils is not allowed, and is grounds for disqualification.

The quest begins with the posting of these notes, and will run until midnight
game time next Thursday, the 19th (which includes that Thursday).

Notes on Trivia: some of the trivia questions asked cannot be answered other than
by asking the immortals the question is about (or possibly a fortuitous guess).
Mortals are free to ask the immortals for the answers to the questions, but the
immortals are free to answer or not as they each see fit.

Scoring: Each item, bag, and basket are worth 1 point each. Each trivia question
is worth 1 point, with the exception of some multi-part questions which are worth
2 points each, but no question, no matter how many parts, is worth more than 2 points.
If 10 or more teams submit answers and items by the deadline of the quest, there
will be a first, second, and third prize team, ranked by their respective team
scores. If less than 10 teams submit items and answers, there will be only a
first and second place team. Teams must submit no less than 25 items/answers to
qualify.

Submission of items & answers: Each team must choose a Team Captain, who will be
responsible for e-mailing the answers to the trivia to me at lorna@yggdrasil.net.
The e-mail should include the name of the team (each team should choose a unique
team name - i.e. Team Borf, Team Virtue, etc.), the names of the members of the
team, the total number of items the team has collected, and the answers to all
the trivia questions, in order, the team is able to answer. Items will be collected
from each respective team in the game by me after each team has submitted their
e-mail. Once a team has submitted an e-mail, they are considered done with the
quest - so don't miss the deadline, but don't submit too early and lose out to
someone who waits that extra bit of time. All items submitted are forfeit (you
don't get to keep the stuff you collect and turn in).

PRIZES: Exact prizes awarded will depend on the composition of the winning teams,
but possible prizes include simple rings, restrings, random items, twist rings,
potions, gold, Chance coins, and a few surprises. There will also be a special
reward to all teams (winning or otherwise) who submit a bag of Tempest hide.

Item and Trivia lists follow in successive notes.

Lorna, Goddess of Chance
