Race of Fate

Post by Jarah » Fri May 03, 2019 12:55 pm

Word spreads throughout the realms that the Church of Tymora will be sponsoring the Race
of Fate! The Race of Fate is a long distance race that this year will start and end in
Waterdeep. Throughout the course, racers will have to deal with the many obstacles
commonly found on the roads, and will have to pass tests in at least three different
check points before they may continue the race.

Luckbringer Niccele Galuchin is looking for three brave adventurers to compete in the race.
Racers of all level of skill are invited to join provided they feel able to defend
themselves against hazards along the road and are not enemies of the Church of Tymora.
Racers can use whatever method of travel they have at their disposal with the exception
of instantaneous travel magic. You may run, bounce, fly and ride. No poofing! A fabulous
prize is in store for the winner of this race, so be sure to get your name in if you
are interested in racing!

Please contact the Luckbringer to put your name in to be a contestant. She will be taking
names either in person or via magical post until this time.
If we have more than three applicants for the race, there will be a competition to
determine who will be racing! Once we have our three racer, their various skills will
be weighed and odds will be placed on each one. Then the date of the race will be
announced and people of the realms will be able to place bets on their favorites until
the day of the race!

Today is the last day to get your name in for the race! Once we have all of our racers, we will set a date for the race, and start setting odds. We'll post the odds and racer information here and then collect bets until Race day! We are planning big prizes, so don't miss out!

PLACE YOUR BETS!

We have our racers! Three brave adventurers have submitted their names to participate in the Race of Fate. Each of them has very different talents, which should make for an excellent race! Our racers are George of Chauntea, Renea of Waukeen, and Elisabeth of Tyr. A bard, a wizard and a paladin! Could things get more exciting?!

To come up with some very simple odds for betting, I have scored these three racers in a variety of categories.

Code: Select all

.                | George | Renea | Elisabeth|
----------------------------------------------
Speed            |   3   |   5    |     5    |
---------------------------------------------
Fighting Prowess |   4   |   3    |     5    |
----------------------------------------------
Intelligence     |   4   |   5    |     4    |
----------------------------------------------
Experience       |   3   |   4    |     5    |
----------------------------------------------
Endurance        |   4   |   3    |     5    |
----------------------------------------------
 
Total:              18      20         24
Now keep in mind that these scores only give an idea of the competitors strengths in different areas. There will be a variety of challenges along the race course that will test the racers, so anything can happen!

To start with, there will be a cap of 50 platinum on betting. You may only bet on one racer to win the race. Depending on the number of bets placed, those who attend the actual raise may be allowed to raise their bets. Betting will take place until the day before the race. (OOC: Exactly 24 hours before the race happens.)

After reviewing the scores for each racer they are given these odds:

Elisabeth: 2 to 1
Renea: 3 to 1
George: 4 to 1

If the maximum bid of fifty platinum is placed this amount of coin would be returned to you:
Elisabeth: 150 platinum
Renea: 200 platinum
George: 250 platinum

Luckbringer Niccele Galuchin will be accepting and recording bids. Get them in to her as soon as possible!

Just a reminder! Tomorrow is the last day to place bids! If you have not placed a bid by tomorrow evening, you will not be able to place a bid at the race. However, if you have placed a bid by tomorrow evening, you will be able to raise your bid by a substantial amount if you attend the race!

WOO!

And the winner is.... DAME ELISABETH!

The race was a nail biter until the very end with each racer in the lead at some point. Thank you to everyone that participated and everyone that attended. We hope to make this a repeat event in the future! Congratulations to everyone who bet on Dame Elisabeth!

Race of Fate - Waterdeep

Post by Jarah » Sat Nov 09, 2019 12:07 am

Woo! We're back everyone and it is time for another race! This race will take place inside the walls of Waterdeep but will have no set route. Racers will have to race from checkpoint to checkpoint. Each checkpoint will have a clue to get you to the next checkpoint. Of course we will be putting out obstacles as well.

The Tower of Luck will also be taking bets on the winner of the race again, as well as other things throughout the race. Winner and participants of the race will receive prizes, so there will be something for everyone!

Before we set a date for the race, we are looking for racers! Anyone not an enemy to the church of Tymora, that is also welcome in Waterdeep will be allowed to participate. Once we have a suitable number of racers we will announce the date and the odds for each racer.

Please contact the Luckbringer Niccele Galuchin via magical post or in person (OOC: Or send me a PM here) if you wish to participate. More details about the race will be given if you are interested. This was a lot of fun last time, this time should provide just as much if not more entertainment.

Hello everyone! I'm sorry, but real life hit hard for several months, but it is time to get this race underway. Since it has been such a long time, let's give two weeks for racers to register once again! If you are interested in taking part in this race, please let me know OOCly, or Niccele know ICly. Please do not worry about scheduling, I am not going to schedule this race until we have a time that will work for each racer! So sign up, it is going to be a good time! Woo!

PLACE YOUR BETS!

We have our racers! SIX brave adventurers have submitted their names to participate in the Race of Fate. Each of them has very different talents, which should make for an excellent race! Our racers are George of Chauntea, Renea of Waukeen, Daerin "Wonko" of Tymora, Amethyst of Tymora, Velgar, a hopeful of Helm, and Celric of Selune! Could things get more exciting?!

This time, the race is going to be taking place within the walls of Waterdeep. Checkpoints will be set up all around the city, with clues at each checkpoint to get to the next one. At each check point, each racer will have to drink from a mystery flask that could contain a number of substances, from milk to hard liquor! So things could get pretty interesting after a few checkpoints. Who is the fastest? Who knows the city the best? Who can handle their drink the best? All of these are things to consider when placing your bets.

There will also be opportunities for people in the audience to interact with the racers and possibly change the turnout of the race. What will happen?!

To start with, there will be a cap of 50 platinum on betting. You may only bet on one racer to win the race. People who actually attend the race will have the opportunity to increase their bets from their original amount! Betting will take place until the day before the race. (OOC: Exactly 24 hours before the race happens.)

The racers have been given these odds:

Celric: 2 to 1
Renea: 3 to 1
Amethyst: 4 to 1
Daerin: 5 to 1
George: 5 to 1
Velgar: 6 to 1


If the maximum bid of fifty platinum is placed this amount of coin would be returned to you:
Celric: 150 platinum
Renea: 200 platinum
Amethyst: 250 platinum
Daerin: 300 platinum
George: 300 platinum
Velgar: 350 platinum

Luckbringer Niccele Galuchin, and Summer Silversong will be accepting and recording bids. Get them in as soon as possible!

**If you place a bet and the racer you wagered on does not show up for the race, you will receive your bet back with an additional ten platinum.**

The date of the actual race has been set to: https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/ ... 1=198&ah=2
