    > Day 3 Coverage

    Day three at the Chesapeake Olympics began with a begging contest. Beggars were asked to beg from two hirelings, and the amount of gold they received from each was totalled into a 'point total'. The turnout for the begging event was quite small, likely because of the few beggars in Britannia.

    Event 5: Begging - WINNERS
    GOLD: Farina de Arina (Team Malas)
    SILVER: Mario (Team Felucca)
    BRONZE: Desire (Team Malas)



    [​IMG]

    The Yacht Race was quite interesting! Famed skipper, and host of the Red Wolf Cafe's Weekly Races, Tancred RedStar took home the gold medal in addition to beating the old course record of 8:22 by one second. Yachtsmen were challenged to sail counterclockwise around Verity Island once being instructed to "BEGIN" and place their boats in the water. Slirith Iceblood took home the silver medal, while Farina de Arina edged past NANOC who had run aground, to claim bronze. Honorable mention goes to NANOC for finishing fourth.

    Event 6: Yacht Race - WINNERS
    GOLD: Tancred RedStar (Team Trammel)
    SILVER: Slirith Iceblood (Team Ilshenar)

    > Chesapeake Olympics FAQ

    Q. Who can participate?
    A. Anyone! Even though this event is on Chesapeake, there is nothing stopping you from transferring over from another shard to compete!


    Q. Are there prizes?
    A. You bet! There are millions of gold in prizes to be won, plus the recognition as a Britannian Olympian.


    Q. Will the events be similar in any way to the events from the Chesapeake 2006 Olympics?
    A. Absolutely! Most of the events are identical to those from 2006, with a few small changes. Returning competitors will even have the chance to reclaim their titles for another two years.


    Q. When will medals and prizes be awarded? After each event?
    A. Actually, medals and prizes will be given out at the Closing Ceremony at the end of August.


    Q. What's this all about teams? I hear that there are 5 teams based on the facets?

    A. Yes, there are 5 teams based on each of the facets: Felucca (red), Trammel (pale gold), Ilshenar (purple), Malas (gray) and Tokuno (light blue). For each event, competitors have the option of "declaring" themselves on a team. This will help us in the end to determine which "Team" won the most medals in the Olympics.


    Q. Where can I find more information about events?
    A. Check out the list of events below! The Olympics are anticipated to start in mid-August, and will last 2 weeks.

    To declare yourself on a team, simply show up in in your team color (preferably wear a robe) and you will be marked down as being on that team. Exact team colors can be found in dye tubs at the Stratics Center/Olympic Hall in Zento.

    The Olympics are fun, fun, fun!!!

    I can't recall the last time I laughed so hard as I did with the Begging contest.

    I am kind of disappointed to see that no many Chessy players are participating.

    Please join in, they will continue this weekend. :danceb:

    There you go being a trollboy again. Jesus, you complain that Trammel ruined UO and all this crap because people can't roleplay and band together to do stuff LIKE THIS. Then complain when somebody actually does something like THIS and posts it in the most popular forum, where anyone can join.

    Hey look BR, roleplaying, community. Just like 11 years ago in UO. With Trammel. Imagine that!

    /edit: And I dare ya to organize something like this on Siege. It would be griefed into oblivion.

    I didn't notice it was ongoing, my fault. Either way, I meant no harm. Still, I guess it's kosher to advertise shard events here? Since it seems to be, I'll let Siege know.

    But oh, look who's talking?

    and what the hell does Trammel have to do with this thread? Oh right, nothing. Thanks for following me around tho, I appreciate the worship.

    FYI, Siege has plenty of events, pretty much weekly. And a healthy RP community. We just had a nice event hosted by one of our thieves guilds over the weekend.

    Now show the world how much you love my style.

    Tah tah newbie.

    Thank you for backseat moderating but I'll take it from here. Last I checked, there's nothing in the UHall's description that prohibits our news reporters from posting community related events here.

    When have Siege related threads not been posted on the UHall...? Feel free to invite your shard's reporter to these events for coverage in the future.

    My fault. I figured that we were supposed to keep shard events on shard forums... or at least that's the impression I've been given.

    But, now that I have the official "word" I will be sure to publicize Siege shard events now that I know it's kosher.

    Since I don't see anything in the UHall's description that prohibits our non-news reporters from posting community related events either.

    *tips hat*

    Thanks guys!!! :D

    This statement doesn't make sense.

    Siege does not equal Felucca.

    *fixt*

    This is news? I thought the [ news ] tag was for more important issues.
