    I would like to propose that Napa Valley hold a race that goes on foot from Trinsic to Britain to Vesper and then sails through Buccaneer's Den and then returning in Trinsic.

    The racers would start in Trinsic and follow the road north to Britain, being sure to show up at each of the markers (blue spots where judges will be to ensure no one is cheating). They may go through Britain and Vesper using any route that they wish, but must always follow the rules.

    Rules:
    • Each runner will be given a book with their racing number, that number must be called off at each checkpoint to qualify.
    • Each runner must hold only a torch in their hands during the race.
    • Runners may not use any mounts of any kind during the Footrace.
    • Runners may not teleport (including short distance blinking) at any point.
    • Gargoyles may not fly, (just accept that you have to run).
    • No boats may be placed prior to the race. Boats must be launched from dry-dock into the water.
    • Sailing must take place through Buccaneer's Den's islands, you will need to hug the western side of the passage to call your number to the judge.
    • The first person to disembark from their ship at Trinsic and cross the finish line is the winner!
    Proposed Prizes
    • 1st Place - 10m Gold on the shard of their choice
    • 2nd Place - 5m Gold on the shard of their choice
    • 3rd Place - 1m Gold on the shard of their choice
    • 4th Place through Last Place - Free torch.

    I love the idea of a race, but prizes should be awarded on THIS shard. This is a race on Napa.... the prize is on Napa.

    Agreed. I just did the multi-shard one because that seemed to be the theme in the past.

    Perhaps this could be Vereor's first event (hint-hint)
