Due to the Olympics going on right now i thought it would be fun if we held a little Olympics of our own. Here is what I thought

Event 1
"Wrestling" naked fighting in the no magic arena. heavy weight would include fighter class and light weight would be speller class.

Event 2
"Bobsled" Timed event which team of 2 can make it through prison the fastest

Event 3
"500 Meter" A race around Aranock (skills like wc, stun, and curse allowed however any damage dealt to another player results in disqualification) probably best if you are in a clan for this one

Please post if you are interested as i will be collecting gold silver and bronze medals for each event. Also if you have another event you would like to see done that would be great too. Date and time TBA

Sounds like fun, I can bring some prizes if we want to make it a little more exciting than just getting a gold medal!  cat

I'm sure we could drum up some fun prizes on this end as well.

I'm guessing the prison even doesn't include ends?

Wouldn't be fair..some take far longer than others not to mention the likelihood of two people ending up in the same one is small.

I'm with Dakr on this one, Why wouldn't it include the final room? Main reason that it SHOULD include ends is so that both players have to actually solo a portion of it, rather than one person just doing the entire thing and the other one just being carried.

So whoever gets cafe wins.

Not much of a "race"

both players have to finish, so unless both get cafe it wouldn't make a huge difference

Maybe instead of being held at a certain time, people can have admin time the run, or record a video of it, being that we probably wont be able to get everyone on at once

This is a great idea.

I may be able to assist with a distance running event.

Let me have a think and then have a chat with Apollo.

I would say each team could have 2 staff sanctioned runs and total the time, it would eliminate the issue of whoever gets cafe wins.

I Agree, bobsled should include all of prison, we can let each group run it twice and total times, I would like to think players would be honest with their times when reporting (so we don't have to all do it one after the other) however if there is a staff member that would be willing to dedicate some time to helping us keep things straight that would be awesome.

Am excited to hear what you have in store to help out with the distance running event LL. can anyone else come up with other events? it seems the wrestling one might be less popular what else can we do to bring the Olympics to Aranock?

As for medal prizes I am still working on deciding what to give for a gold/silver/bronze medal, if you have any ideas or would like to donate a prize feel free to pm me or just find me in game.

I might have a suggestion that will make sure that everyone can compete in the times most suitable for them...

If we create a forum topic once events have been chosen and teams have been formed, and if we create a time window i.e 1 or 2 weeks from xxx date, then individual teams can post:

Event type
Team members
Date of run/try
Time of run/try in CEST or GMT

Then a capable staff member can edit your post and include their name at the bottom if they are free to officiate at that time, they then go back to the post and re-enter your complete time/results for all of the events.

For group vs group events requiring all to be present we can try and create the event around the time the majority of participants have chosen and give plenty of notice.

Give ppl a day or two to see if any more ideas for events can be included and then we can begin Smile

What about cross country skiing? where you have to collect say 15 prescribed items located all over the map in the fastest time?
