As noted elsewhere, this event will begin at 6:00pm PST today, rather than at 5:00. More interestingly however, is that prizes have finally been determined. As this is a Costume Party, we have decided to theme the prizes accordingly. Therefore, the three main prizes will consist of the following costume "kits": Blackbeard: A Metal Chest recovered from a shipwreck containing: Skullcap Newbied Shirt and Short Pants Earrings with Invisibility charges Vanquishing Cutlass A Ship A Deviously-drawn treasure map An SOS seashells 13 lockpicks Robin Hood: Feathered Hat Newbied Fancy Shirt, Long Pants and Shoes Vanquishing Bow Indestructible Crossbow of Power 500 bolts 1000 arrows 1000 feathers 1000 shafts Fletcher's tools Possible addition of Modified specialty bow (if I have time) Contrary Mary: Floppy hat (possibly newbied, I'll have to check) Newbied Skirt and Fancy Shirt Potted Plant (orfleurs) At least one each Black and White Mutant plants Decorative rare fire red plant Pots Seeds A dozen Green Thorns There will be three costume categories: Best, Most original and Worst. Partygoers will vote for each category in a book. The winner of Best will get first choice of the three prizes, the winner of Most Original will get second choice, and the Worst will receive the remaining prize. We will also stage a Drunk Race, wherein contestants will line up at the starting line on the road outside, each down 5 jugs of cider, then see who can stagger the most swiftly to the finish line. The Prize for this one will be Two Champagne Flutes, a Bottle of Champagne and Janna's Hangover Remedy (natch) Welp, I guess that's it for now. Hope to see you all there!
