I was trying to come up with ideas for what we could do for our 8 year anniversary coming up, and I thought up a lot of elaborate contests or events, and while I was not lacking in ideas (ask me about The Midsummer Poker Run some time), I ultimately every time came to the conclusion "well Midnight can't support an event of that size."  Plus I want it to be fun and I don't want the stress of an event on myself or the event-throwers. 

So I came up with something else that I want to run by you guys that I think would be a bit easier. 

Throughout the week of the 7-14th (since we really don't know the exact date), we will have around 7 tournaments set up at various times with a small cash prize and a grand prize that acts as an raffle ticket (I'm thinking we should use War Frigs as a sign of audaciousness, plus we have more of those than cash).   On saturday we can throw a Rome Dunk Tank (I enter the field with a ship, other people try to sink me.  The captain of the ship ship that manages to sin k me the most wins.  However that ship has to survive until the end, so they have motivation to sink each other)  Then on Sunday we will have an open-to-the-ocean Tideaments, where at the end we will draw the winner for a nice grand prize.  No I don't have a nice grand prize yet.  Hahah.

This may be too short notice to gather enough money to do this so if anyone has any quick ideas that would be fine.

I put a bunch of trinkets, in three trinket cases in the flag hall for you to use as you see fit for this event.  They are located in the ball room on the first floor, upstairs and to the left, and in the gold room upstairs.  I also have a plum croma that you can have and 12 rogue marks but i need to give those to you personally.

At this point I think we should proceed like we aren't going to get my special prize from the OMs, so we should proceed.  What should be the grand prize?  A prize pack?

The OMs have approved a Demeter doll for our prize so I think that could be the grand prize? (=

Here is what I sent the OMs so we need to make sure our event stays true to what I've put here;
Quote
Pirate name: Rome

Name of Event:  TBAD

Brief description: A mostly (hopefully) worry free but still fun celebration of our 8th year of pirating.   

Venue: Midnight.  Xi, probably something at Angelfish or Midsummer.

Expected Start Time: August 14-21

Planned Duration: 7-9 Sessions

Judging Duration: 24 hours

* Oceanmaster Assistance Basically what I'm asking from you guys is if it would be possible if we provide the prizes (right now we're looking at war frigs and cash) to automate a few tournaments for us.   Most of this event will be largely run with our own resources. 

* Oceanmaster Prizes: I would love to  have something really unique as a grand prize, my dream prize would be a Thanos doll, and heck one of the old Devs might enjoy making that.  But I came up with the idea too late probably.  An OM doll would be awesome  I'm not sure how many OMs would want their dolls associated with us, hahah.  Does Cleaver have a doll?     The second dream would be a cool familiar of course.  ACTUALLY I just had another dream, a unique trophy. 

Maybe on the low end if you guys want to provide some cool trinkets for door prizes that would be cool too.

BUT, realistically, we really don't need any of this by the way.  We will come up with our own Grand Prize if necessary, we just really wish to have something unique to offer, but if not, we'll make it worth player's while.


* Broadcasts: Just the regular one with the tourney will do

* When requesting prizes, remember that we are more likely to offer help with prizes for events where some prizes are already being provided by the event organizer. For example, we are much more likely to agree to rename a prize ship that you are providing than to provide the ship ourselves.


Event Proposal:
   I have to say this is still rough, but right now we propose holding 7 tournaments at times that will reach players of all time zones.  The prize for this tournament will be a ship that will serve as an entry into our raffle for a grand prize.
   There also will be a Rome Dunking event.  Taking place in an event blockade, the navigator who manages to sink me and four or fiveof my friends with whatever crew he can fit on a sloop will be given an entry into this drawing, and money to share between his ship.  The caveat is though he will have to survive to the end, because if someone else sinks him they will be deemed the winner.  If there is a tie then the next round the tied people will have a last ship-sailing duel.    Of course the standard Crimson Tide "we can't stop people from interfering" disclaimer applies. 
   Lastly, our weekly "Crimson Tideament" (tournaments in drinking, rumble, swords and treasure drop) event will be held with much bigger prizes than normal and in an easily accessible location rather than our homes or quiet Inns like usual. Here the grand prize will be drawn for with the old Robertdonald technique of using the drinking puzzle as a raffle machine (the first pirate who has the piece assigned to him come up wins).
