Title: A new kind of event


K Arthur90 - February 12, 2009 07:14 PM (GMT)
I'd like to know what time will most of our EC's be online, so I could try and organize/schedule a race.
What I had in mind is we set our EC's all over Gielinor and use them as "checkpoints", while our members race for the finish line.

Lol, this question is funny because I'm on almost all the time. Work from home for the win! :D

K Arthur90 - February 12, 2009 07:40 PM (GMT)
Ok. But a race with one start line and a finish line and no checkpoints?

starwolf_ftw - February 12, 2009 07:42 PM (GMT)
Checkpoints are kind of a good idea. Like the first three to a check point recieve a prize, OR (I just thought of this) the members must bring a certain item to each different coordinator. Kinda makes it a scavenger hunt/race style? You like :D

K Arthur90 - February 12, 2009 07:48 PM (GMT)
That wasn't quite the idea.
I though we set EC around gielinor and one of them is the start line and another is the finish line, and ppl had to go, (in any order they want) to all checkpoints and then go to the finish line.
But your idea of an "Amazing Race" is even better. But instead of just bringing items, other things should be done, like:
>>CHECKPOINT!<<
Kill chickens and bring the EC 100 feathers.
or
>>CHECKPOINT!<<
Obtain five different kinds of cooked food.

Great idea! But we still need all EC's online for that.

Lol - "The Amazing Race - RS Style!"

Imagine if we did this on P2p... but we can't do this alone. We could make this a multiclan event possibly? But first we'll have to try it out ourselves :P

Sword User - February 24, 2009 12:11 AM (GMT)
Sounds like a fun idea, I can be on any time that isn't really late/early for GMT..

K Arthur90 - February 24, 2009 01:52 AM (GMT)
OMG star. you gotta have thought of this already...
Agreed with him. Maybe a multi clan race? But then we'd have to organize with more ppl, synchronize our EC's with theirs and.... and.... OMG! I SO LIKED THIS IDEA!

EDIT: How can we schedule an event with our allied clans? I have no idea on how to do this.

animal magik - February 25, 2009 07:09 AM (GMT)
Lol contact them and ask them if they'd like to do it?

starwolf_ftw - February 26, 2009 02:10 AM (GMT)
I already have contacts within TZ (bad contact) and LTH (good contact). We could try it with them, but not until we try it ourselves first. Remember to test within the clan first like we did with contests, after a few successful tries, then we'll branch out.

No, I haven't really thought about doing it with more clans, but I do seem to have that mindset to connect other clans to one another. I guess I'm just a good represenative of customs or something, because LTH and TZ both wanted to do our multiclan comp hands down with no problems (til after the contest <_< )

dflame58 - February 26, 2009 02:13 AM (GMT)
loool part of amazing race. u have to go through 1 of the agility courses with out falling.

K Arthur90 - February 26, 2009 04:28 PM (GMT)
Ok, then. We're doing this.
We just need to find a time good for most of our EC's.

anytime after 5pm EST I could do. except on weekends. My playtime on weekends is sporadic.

Yes, I could do this, but please may it be on the weekend?

QUOTE (Animal Magik)

I'm good for 9 pm GMT until around 11 am GMT on a Sunday (for me).

Until March 13, I'm online after 12:00 EST

starwolf_ftw - February 26, 2009 04:58 PM (GMT)
Til I finally land another job, I'll be on quite a bit at a variety of times. So until I get a job, anytime will be a good time for me :D

Also Arthur, what happens for you on March 13th? (oh noes! another Friday the 13th! :o )

K Arthur90 - February 26, 2009 05:10 PM (GMT)
LOOOOL!!!! :lol:
No. My classes start at March 15th, so I gotta gather up school books, sharpen pencils, restock my rubber...... stock. So I prolly won't be able to spend 12 hours online as I do now. Maybe 7 or 8 hours :P

animal magik - February 28, 2009 05:16 AM (GMT)
We should do it on March 22, my bday ftw?

K Arthur90 - February 28, 2009 06:22 PM (GMT)
It's ok for me.
How about the other EC's?

starwolf_ftw - March 1, 2009 06:28 AM (GMT)
That's really far ahead.. 3 weeks. I don't know yet, but I'll keep you guys posted. Btw, should we start thinking about what our checkpoints are going to be?

dflame58 - March 1, 2009 08:06 AM (GMT)
i'm fine with whenever. for now. I might be getting a job tho :/

I've been looking around for one since I lost mine...

K Arthur90 - March 1, 2009 05:36 PM (GMT)
Oh... you grown ups and jobs....
Thank god I didn't manage to get on university so I can still dedicate all my time to prepare myself to try and get on university again.....:P
Oh.....:huh:
What the hell am I saying?!???? I was supposed to be on university already :(


Anywho.... dflame said that we could have someone to pass the agility course w/o failing. The main problem is that most of AL is F2P, so we can't extrapolate too much. We should try to get as much closer as possible to the real Amazing Race. We should try checkpoints that involve interaction with players from outside the race, things that require skill and a tiny bit of luck, things like that.

Not yet on university ftl! :(

starwolf_ftw - March 2, 2009 11:41 PM (GMT)
Well, here's a thought for checkpoint activities.

- bring 200 feathers (about 10-25 kills at chickens)
- make 50 air runes at air altar (someone must be there as a checkpoint)
- Kill a guard and show a net drop gain of 2k gp (checkpoint could be in varoc or faly)
-mine silver in al karid mine
-catch 5 tuna on karamja docks
-kill a lesser demon


That's all I got so far, and all are f2p. Everyone can come up with some others and we'll have to pick abour 4 of them since there are only 5 of us left... :(

Also, how about we have the race end at Champions guild or White Knight Castle?

dflame58 - March 3, 2009 12:27 AM (GMT)
that sounds a bit like a RS world acheivement diary to me.

Isn't that what the "amazing race" is? lol?

K Arthur90 - March 3, 2009 01:20 AM (GMT)
We don't actually have to have only 4... we can have 8. look:

Race starts at GE. EC1 is there to give the initial GO! shout.
EC2 will be near aubury. Task: Mine 20 essences.
EC3 will be near barbarian village. Task: Fish and cook five (put fish here).
EC4 will be near falador north gate. Task: (insert task here)
EC1 will have teleported to Falador and will be standing near the air altar. Task: 50 air runes.
EC2 will also have teleported to Falador, standing on Port Sarim's Pub. Task: Bring x feathers.
EC3 may have enough time to go to Karamja Volcano. Task: 1-5 (up to the cbt lv of the racers) ashes (presumably from Lessers)
EC4 will be at Brimhaven Gate (outside, of course) waiting for the winners.

starwolf_ftw - March 3, 2009 02:02 AM (GMT)
It could work, but is kinda confusing....

.,.... maybe :P

I think that it would be good for each EC to know the task but not say what it is until the person arrives. you are probably thinking that too though.

K Arthur90 - March 3, 2009 02:11 AM (GMT)
All EC's don't need to know what the other EC's must do. EC1 must only focus on his two tasks. Then it'd be easier.
And yeah, dflame. We'd only say where the EC's/checkpoints would be and the task would be said on the fly.
What do you say about those checkpoints?

dflame58 - March 3, 2009 06:03 AM (GMT)
i think we should be sticking to non combat things. then everyone can do it and u wont have to worry about going back to get armor and food.

starwolf_ftw - March 3, 2009 06:29 AM (GMT)
I do feel some combat stuff would be neccessary because then it wouldn't really be like "amazing race," it should be who can complete it the fastest, and combat stuff will be the best curveball stuff we can through because I'm sure we all can kill a lesser demon easily with nothing on :P . They can even use the fish caught for one task as food for another.

dflame58 - March 3, 2009 06:49 AM (GMT)
thats a good idea to make the tasks go together kinda.

K Arthur90 - March 3, 2009 06:36 PM (GMT)
That's why I thought of the "mine 20 essence" task, and then "craft runes".
Also that can give options for the racer: Either buy the remaining 30 off GE or mine them. Either way they're gonna have two trips to the altar.

Not neccessarily, remember at 11 rc you make 2 airs per essence ;)

K Arthur90 - March 3, 2009 09:56 PM (GMT)
But we shan't say that :) It's up to the racers to remeber that :P

animal magik - March 4, 2009 08:43 AM (GMT)
Maybe craft a certain number of ess into runes and find their rc lvl so you know, instead of craft a certain number of the runes.

That's too much work, just crafting a certain amount of air runes would be fine.

Really? So craft 30 ess into air runes is too hard other then craft 30 air runes? Wouldn't really be fair to people with lower RC, unless you made it so the number required is less then 28 so banking wouldn't be required.

If people have less then 11 rc, then it's their own fault in not raising it, and therefore should have the penalty of getting more ess. I mean, you can get 11 rc at about 13 trips to air altar from level 1. It isn't that hard. Not to mention I think we may have only 2 members who don't have 11 rc.
