As discussed in the native forum, we are going to have a real time battle to decide the outcome of the current pirate assault of Raktam.

Time: GMT midnight, next Saturday. There has been some confusion about what this means. For me in Perth, Western Australia:

12:00:00 Midnight Sunday August 26, 2007 in GMT converts to
08:00:00 a.m. Sunday August 26, 2007 in Australia/Perth

For anyone in New York:

12:00:00 Midnight Sunday August 26, 2007 in GMT converts to
08:00:00 p.m. Saturday August 25, 2007 in America/New_York

For Armadox, who has specifically asked, assuming Florida is Central US and not Eastern US:

12:00:00 Midnight Sunday August 26, 2007 in GMT converts to
07:00:00 p.m. Saturday August 25, 2007 in US/Central

For anyone else go to www.timezoneconverter.com

Location: 20 paces west of Raktam

Terms:

a)No attacking anyone on field prior to the battle. Scouts will places signs around the battle field alerting passers-by to the forthcoming event.
b) there is an armistice between the groups between now and the battle to allow everyone to get into position.
c) any weapon goes, ganging up on individual players permitted, mercenaries form their own arrangements with each respective antagonist.

Prizes: the winner is the person with the most kills on field (kills are to be recorded on the Underworld)

1. 250 GCs collectable from the Durham branch of the Bank;
2. the honour of having the field west of Raktam (between Raktam and the mountain) named after them
3. the honour of having the battle named after them ("Battle of [insert name]'s Plain")

Record your participation here so we can check the Underworld to see who is the winner.

Any questions?

I might ask Simon to see if he will broadcast this to all players.

If you are asking Simon maybe he can separate unofficial news from the official news in different sections

Tom or a mod - would you be so kind as to pin this thread?

20 Paces west of what part of Raktam though. The most westerly edge?

I'd like to place a bet against my own side, can I do that? It makes sense, really, you'll have bigger numbers, better weapons, we'll be outgunned and outmatched, we've just got 5 more HP than your warriors.

Can natives fight on the side of the pirates? If so, A rat will be joining the pirates in the battle.

The flight was heavenly
the sky my ocean
As I soared beyond the clouds
and golden voices called me home
You asked "Do you believe in love?"
and I shook my head
So, your sins unto me as I fall down
never to return from this land
My wings are clipped, my voice stilled,
Goodbye.

Been thinking it through another time, as it is quite an interesting idea, but I've still found more reason in not participating. Me and my associates will however be ready to pick off any stragglers not intending to solve this conlict on the decided location, and will do what we can to secure the peace apart from those seeking to partake in this event. I however support the organised nature of the event, and wish you all luck with your little parade of carnage. Well, the native side, anyway...

Organised warfare with the outsiders?! Did you catch syph from the last pirate who raped you?! Are you congenitally insane?!

Crush the pirates, drive them before you, hear the lamentation of their parrots!

We say the same about the lamentation of your women.

And if I got the clap, it'd be off of your women!

But I dont!

So there!

Excellent.

Rob - maybe we should post signs indicating where the battle field is to be. I'll buy some driftwood and stake out the battle field and clear a rectangular area as best I can.

Can natives fight on the side of the pirates? If so, A rat will be joining the pirates in the battle.

Sure, go for it.
