Tynian: Quest: Friday 2003-03-07, Saturday

Sun Mar 2 15:12:22 2003
To: all

The quest will start on Friday when I get around to starting it, and will last for exactly one day. Tentative approximate start time is 1pm. 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 HUNTING mage mobs that are specifically for the quest. You'll get a message if you kill one. 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. ;-)

Immortals may assist their followers.

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.

ONCE THE QUEST ENDS (AND TO BE SAFE, A COUPLE OF MINUTES BEFORE): *** *** GET TO A SAFE ROOM *** ***
The safety settings automatically shut off, but those hunting mobs don't know that you shouldn't be slain. We will reboot after the quest concludes.
