    <center>Written By Cymoril</center> <h2>Oceania Olympic Games: Summary 29th Jan - 6th Feb</h2>

    It's been another week or so of fun and games in Oceania as the Olympic Games have continued with the Track & Field, Survival, Tailoring and Stealing Events. The medal tallies have sure changed a lot, and it's looking unmistakably like a foregone conclusion at this late stage of the game.

    It's not to late to join in, though, to see if you can win a medal for your favourite City, or for yourself! So without further ado, here are the latest results... <h3>Medal Tallies as at 6th February:</h3>

    TRACK & FIELD
    GOLD - Chief Y (Skara Brae)
    SILVER - Ereon (Minoc)
    BRONZE - Lord Lionheart (Britain)

    The Track & Field event was essentially a Cross-Country footrace. Contestants were given Olympic-Grade Running Shoes, dyed to match their City Colours, and were then taken to the beginning of the track. The track was to be run on foot, and contestants had to traverse dirt road and swamp terrain before they would arrive at the finish line in Britain. There were invisible checkpoints along the way, where hidden OPEN staff would check all contestants were on foot, on track and not recalling.

    Competitors: Chief Y (Skara Brae), Walter/Ereon (Minoc), Lord Lionheart (Britain), Don Quan (Trinsic), Queen Aglaranna (Magincia).

    SURVIVAL
    GOLD - Chief Y (Skara Brae) Best time: 3m14S
    SILVER - Queen Aglaranna (Magincia) Best time: 5m10S
    BRONZE - Chivato (Trinsic) Best time: 5m29S

    The Survival event was fairly simple. Contestants had to duplicate a campsite setup, in traditional here's-one-we-prepared-earlier style. One at a time, Competitors laid out the items as supplied, to match the adjacent site. Once complete, contestants lit their campfire, signalling they were done. Any errors in their design cost them a 30 second time penalty.

    Competitors: Chief Y (Skara Brae), Queen Aglaranna (Magincia), Chivato (Trinsic).

    TAILORING
    GOLD - Chief Y (Skara Brae)
    SILVER - Queen Aglaranna (Magincia)
    BRONZE - Lord Lionheart (Britain)

    Spectators watch as the Tailors furiously sew and snip!</center>

    Here, the five entrants were led to their sewing rooms via holes in the roof, and once settled, set up their own vendors to display their soon-to-be-made outfits. The instructions were to create six items, with the following attributes:

    <center><table border=1> <tr><td>1 x item with 12% Physical
    1 x item with 12% Fire
    1 x item with 12% Cold
    1 x item with 12% Poison
    1 x item with 12% Energy
    1 x item with 3 x matching resists</td></tr></table></center>

    They could only craft leather items from the "Leather Armor" menu of the Sewing kit, or Cloth hats from the "Hats" menu. Naturally, they were given sufficient leather and cloth to craft with. Chief Y (on A.D.I.D.A.S) was first to finish, after having great difficulty with his final piece, and the three others that were left (Lady Kat had to leave early) then had a mini "sew-off" to decide Silver and Bronze.

    Competitors: Chief Y (Skara Brae), Queen Aglaranna (Magincia), Lord Lionheart (Britain), Lady Kat (Skara Brae), Dar (Magincia)

    <hr> <center>

    STEALING
    GOLD - Chief Y (Skara Brae)
    SILVER - Lord Lionheart (Britain)
    BRONZE - Dar (Magincia)

    Competitors madly follow the Victim!</center>

    It was the first test of the Feluccan Olympic Arena and contestants were gated directly inside the heavily-fortified walls. Registrations were taken, and the rules were explained. The thieves had to follow an overloaded pack horse, named "Victim of Theft" and steal as much as they could in ten minutes. At the end, the total weight stolen by each contestant was added, and the heaviest weights stolen overall took the medals.

    Competitors: Chief Y (Skara Brae), Lord Lionheart (Britain), Dar (Magincia), Queen Aglaranna (Magincia), Takami Tuyarruum (Moonglow).

    Thanks to everyone who has supported and continues to support OPEN and the Oceania Olympic Games! There are only four more Events to go, so stay tuned for the final report!
     
  2. I think that Chief Y having the most medals really does indicate that Pet is a trammy in disguise.

    It would appear this event is bringing out his true trammyness (i know its not a word) [​IMG]

    Well done everyone who is competing in the games, I know I personally haven't been to that many events because of real life interferences but its awesome to see the community getting behind the event......maybe it could be an annual thing???..........if we haven't worn poor cymmy out with this one, she has worked very hard.

    hehehe, well that was a bit misleading. It HAS been a lot of work and time put into the events, and I AM looking forward to a nice break when it's over, but if it wasn't fun, I wouldn't do it in the first place!

    Although I figure I will get let off the hook in terms of an annual event, as Digger pointed out, an Olympiad is four years, so who knows where we will all be by the time we're due for more Oceanian Olympics, anyway! [​IMG]

    Well the oce olympics coincides (sp?) with the 'real' olympics which is this year and they also fall on leap years aswell. But i think 4years is a bit long for a re-occuring uo event. But next time round (if there is one) i shouldnt be moving house (god i hope not) so ill be able to help alot more
