    Here ye! Here ye!

    Introducing the Barter Town One Million Gold Challenge!

    [​IMG]

    Come one! Come all!

    Please meet at the Barter Town Stables 10 minutes prior to the event (within guard zone).

    In the event, all of Barter Town will be made public -- including the houses. Inside the houses will be all kinds of containers. Inside some containers are books with clues. Inside one container in particular is a one million gold check!

    This event will run either 30 minutes or 1 hour, depending on the turn out. More details to come.

    Oh yes, there will be blood. ^^




    (Date and time are most likely going to be next Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Still trying to get everyone's availabilities.)

    Kelmo sits at his desk and looks through the stacks of messages that have gathered while he was away. He picks up the report from the Minoc area and reads.


    There is a bit of activity in and around Minoc. A new upstart crew
    of Young Turks seem to have claimed the territory for their own.
    A little protection racket, some petty larceny is about all to be expected.

    I do not for see any disruption in Minax business occurring in the region.
    I will continue to monitor the situation and report if anything changes.

    D.


    Kelmo smiles. He sends the message to Goldy. He adds a note at the bottom.

    I will send an enforcer though on occasion to insure there is no interference
     
  8. Are the chests locked and trapped?

    Tomorrow (Saturday) @ 2:00pm PST / 5:00pm EST / 10:00pm GMT

    I've been trying to decide if this should run 30 min or 1 hour. I'm thinking 45 minutes. There's a time limit because I need a chance for us to win. (I'm not just doing this out of the kindness of my ice cold heart.)

    The check is real. It'll be there. There will be lots of screenshots for proof.

    I will try to be there to collect death robes, but it is unlikely. Please take screenshots so those of us who can't attend can see the carnage and chaos!!

    So, does that mean oodles of other crafters are going to come out of the wood work claiming that their public homes are unsafe from the evil blue shakaja?

    rofl

    I'm pretty sure someone just got owned and it wasnt anyone it KOC!

    Next time, people might remember to set their teleporters and doors to a higher access level.

    Yes, it takes a lot of skill to "own" a crafter who has no combat skill, with a super dragon. He's done this more than once and in various vendor houses, but as usual, you are commenting on something you are clueless about. No real surprise there! :coco: :loser:

    Update:

    1 hour to go.

    Don't know what happened to Peter Griffin. Haven't talked to him in 3 days. He said he was going to make it. Looks like he's not. 1 less house.

    Houses go public in 10 minutes. They'll stay that way for 45 minutes.

    Thanks for the event, Chad. It was great fun and very well thought out, something for both PvP and non-PvP players. I am just so sorry that with all that effort so few people actually turned up.

    On the bright side, it was great that the one NEW member present found the check and is now one million gold richer.

    Ummm...I looted it too! Guess what I found....? My sandles, my scissors, my two sewing kits, my two skinning knives, the three egg bombs I'd found in other chests. Never did find my three bolas! Ah well....!

    Oh, was a very pleasant surprise to find one of my own cookies in a box! It was delicious by the way!

    Happy to report that a NEW got the check (there really was one!)


    Kudos to Eowyn for bringing the unicorns! *giggles*

    Chad, that was sooooo much fun! Thank you for holding this event! Wish other folks would have shown up, though KoC did come late to the party.

    This was really well thought out!

    Read it again.

    "All of Barter Town", including the mines.

    The book with the correct clue wasn't any of the new ones I wrote last night. It was the Barter Town Mines book that's always been public that's in the public Pawn Shop.


    The whole thing was an underhanded way to get people to remember the mines belong to us. Maybe next time you'll remember.

    (Never cared about the money. If you show up, we win.)

    Win-Win!

    Hrmmm....Chad? Did you poison my cookie? I made sure to eat it after I'd already been poisoned by one of the boxes so I couldn't tell.

    Was still quite tasty though!

    Just wanted to thank Barter town for hosting and another thanks for the 1 million gp check! I just wish more people could have made it, I expected an all out brawl but it seems like the only people killing were the Barter town residents.

    Indeed it is best not to kill one who supports the thieves and is aware of the code yet is not bound by it.

    This should be done again and hopefully there will be more people, just yell if you need donations for things to loot.
    Again you did a great job especialy the black floor on the roof with all the bag balls.
    I will continue to keep all thief worthy things I loot in my pack for you to steal and kudos to the latest budding thief who got the +13 stealing brace.
