    This is a PvP event!

    Location: Cartel Island

    Date: Sept. 16th, 2010

    Time: 5:00 PM PST


    Hostess: Proserpina


    Howdy folks,

    Ever seen all the trash talk in the General channel and wanted a shot at those names? Here's your chance!

    Rules are simple:

    1. Each celeb can have 7 bids; the top 7 bids will win. Any bid is acceptable. Bids will be handled and organized on Stratics. Any single individual may bid on more than one celebrity. Bid winners may show up on any character. Celebs can bid on themselves and can also bid on other celebs. Celebs who bid on themselves will not be counted in the 7 top bids.

    2. On the day of the event, all 7 top bidders will have 7 minutes to kill the celeb at the same time (7 v 1). The celeb cannot hide/stealth, leave Cartel Island, go into a house or kill him/herself. Dismounts, tamers, heal stones and pots are all OK. The celebrity can fight back. Bidders may not attack each other.

    3. The bidder who gets the killshot, confirmed by having the celeb in party with a neutral, will win the pot.

    4. If the celeb is alive after 7 minutes, the celeb wins the pot and keeps the gold from the bids.

    5. Audience may not interfere with the chase. Audience members may not be attacked. Only one celebrity gank is conducted at a time.

    6. This is a PvP event. Dress accordingly.

    And that's it.

    Confirmed Celebrities:

    1. Soulless - $C$ - 60k (CryptisRavenous), 25k (Jeff.)

    2. Twista - $C$ - 20k (SK), 25k (Jeff.), 25k (Emosocial)

    3. Turtle - GSE - 60k (CryptisRavenous), 100k (SpiderBall81), 25k (Emosocial)

    4. Balljoint - $C$ - 60k (CryptisRavenous), 25k (Jeff.), 25k (Emosocial)

    5. SuperKen - $C$ - 25k (Jeff.), 25k (Emosocial)

    6. LoL Eat the Dirt - SI -

    7. Ayassa - SI - 500k (BrigSI), 100k (SpiderBall81), 25k (Jeff.), 25k (Emosocial)

    8. Yourself - K^R - 1mil (Ayassa), 20k (SK), 250k (Lt. Snuggles), 100k (SpiderBall81), 25k (Jeff.), 25k (Emosocial)

    10. lil Debi - M!S - 50k (ShockerBleedsKR), 25k (Jeff.), 25k (Emosocial)

    If it's held after 6:00PM Server time, or on a weekend, I'll go up on the auction block. Although, I should perhaps request that I be allowed to win the pot after 7 seconds than 7 minutes. :)

  11. I'd happily offer up my services (and a death robe) if not for the "celebrity" thing :gee: I sooo much prefer remaining an anonymous nobody :lol: (Besides I'd be hard pressed to match Brytt's 7 seconds)

    Added you Six.

    I hadn't considered it, but bidding on yourself just makes the pot bigger for others to want to get the killshot. That's fine.

    Ok, gotcha Six.

    New entrant - The highly popular LoL Eat the Dirt has joined us; bids have been reset (even those who bid a number on "everyone") at his request.
     
  34. I may have to make an appearance for this, sounds interesting.

    Thanks to everyone who came out to the event!

    I'm sure there were some kinks to work out, but overall, I believe it was fun for everyone.

    Now we have to organize a celebrity roast for someone on Baja.
