Like the game of chess but feel it may be to simple? Maybe you find chess boring and think it needs more explosions, body parts, and maybe even some nudity?! Then you are in luck! Minoc, Trinsic, an an anonymous benefactor are proud to present a Live Chess event which will have all of of these awesome things! Meet up at 4pm at the Minoc bank and we will be gating everyone to a secret location were our awesome chess masters have been working hard to bring you the entertainment you need. Don't think you will just be watching, because that is boring, you need to come out and play the game! So everyone is invited, red blue green and orange, to come out and play with us. Be the Plucky Pawn, the Knoble Knight, or the Roguish Rook. You may even get picked to be the King or Queen! Details: When and Where: Minoc bank Felucca at 4pm Eastern. Then a secret chessboard location. (Gates from Luna to Minoc Fel will be provided) Who: Everybody! Willingness to get your hands bloody and willing to kill or be killed a bonus but not required. How: OK there are two parts to this. Chess and Combat resolution. Chess: Almost all normal chess rules apply. We will split up into two teams with team captains playing the King. Pieces on the playing field will be played by anyone who comes! Any slots not filled will be played by items to represent missing players. You have 60 seconds to make a move. Combat: Here is where the explosions and dead people come in. When a valid chess move results in a captured piece it doesn't always resolve in the attacker's favor. For the sake of time, all combat involving pawns will be resolved by normal Chess rules and Kings are subject to standard check and mates. For ever other fight we will hop over to the Arena, set up a 5 minute duel between the two pieces. The one left standing or if the fight times out (attacker's favor) will win the square! This means an attacking queen risks losing to a defending rook. Fights are limited to 5 minutes. The King may stand in for a piece as a "champion" or select a "champion" from their own team. You may not champion twice in a row. All fights will be in the Arena so there will be no looting, no insurance, just good old in your face death matches. Tamer fights are possible but within reason and both Kings will need to agree to that fight's rules. For example just pet vs pet or Tamer vs Tamer. The biggest rule? Play nice. We are here to have fun and introduce PVP to Trammies, but l33t PvPeRz are welcome to come out as well to teach us blues how you rock and roll!
