Nidaros, Trammel, Chesapeake (PaxLair Times) – November 17, 2010 – by Winfield – Mayor Zanku is planning a “Blood Regata” challenge on the High Seas. A month ago he proposed the event and there’s been some great interest. Stay informed on the dates, rules, and how to enter by following the UO Forums note here.
Zanku’s original thoughts for the Blood Regata were as follows. They may change by the time ships set sail.
Hoist up the sails and pull up the anchor. The races are about to begin. After attending a Town Hall meeting in Aryslan last night, (10/18), the idea of another “Boat Race” had been brought up. But this time, with a twist.
The ships will start in Aryslan with a captain & full crew and will be directed to certain land points in order to pick up unknown cargo. From there the ships would continue to yet another point and pick up more cargo and then return to Aryslan with their goods in tow. BUT, here’s the twist. Slow your opponents down by means of cannon fire only in order to gain the lead. If you see a competitor coming up on your sides or in front of you, or even gaing on your rear, open fire and try to slow him down to the point where you can gain the lead. (It’s all-out cannon warfare) on the open seas. BUT, there is one major rule of the race.
YOU CANNOT BOARD AND OR ATTEMPT TO ENTER MELEE COMBAT.
It’s a boat race with a twist and fun, not open PVP warfare on the open seas. (Thats for another time,lol).
Please watch the forums and such for more details and times of this upcoming event.
