    Sanctuary 13: Memories of the Future

    Sanctuary 13: Memories of the Future


    This month's event will mark 6 months since Sanctuary was created. In that time, we have gained almost 150 members on this forum, and many, many more have dedicated time to the Sanctuary channel ingame, either looking for help, offering help, or just looking for somewhere to talk. I would personally like to say, as I'm sure TaCO will as well: Thank-you. I know I've been on all ends of the stick in Sanctuary, and I've enjoyed every minute of it.

    Because we've lasted 6 months and there have been no significant fatalities, we wanted to do something special. So for July, we are going to be putting on events all week. We are still working out specific details, but there will be events all week long, starting on Monday 7th, and culminating on the Sunday. Those of us running these events will be updating this post with details as we get them, and there is an overview timetable below.

    Schedule
    7th: Mystery Event - Ongoing all week

    10th: Sanctuary Scavenger Trail

    7th: The Mystery Event

    10th: Sanctuary Scavenger Trail

    The Sanctuary Scavenger Trail will be a clue hunting event. You will be given clues, and will have to work out where they are referring to. When you reach the location, there will be somebody there to give you the next clue. This will continue until you reach the end. All locations will be in either Kingsmouth Town or Savage Coast. You are advised to be reasonably competent at fighting in both zones, however, there will be no specific need to go into Ak'ab territory unless you really want to. The hosts for this event are Auroris & Bumpiinha.

    The winners will be determined by the amount of time it takes you to complete the hunt. The times you start and finish will be recorded, and the fastest three times will win prizes of 1200, 600 & 300 bonus points each. The winner will also get the Sanctuary title "Master Tracker"

    This event will start at 1800 UTC, and will be three hours long. Please note that nobody will be allowed to start the trail in the last hour of the event. The event will start in Kingsmouth Town, at coordinates 400, 400.


    11th: The Ultimate Showdown II

    The Ultimate Showdown II is here! It's going to be a little different to the first event. Here's how it's going to work.

    There will be two competitions, the Last Man Standing, and the Team Knockout. The Last Man Standing will be a free-for-all kill anything that moves competition in the Seoul Fight Club. There will be no rounds, it will simply be a blood-fest of slaughter. The Team Knockout will be more structured and based in London. People will enter in teams of either 3 or 5. In each fight, a team will be knocked out. The winning team will be the one that is undefeated! The host for this event will be Bumpiinha

    The rules will be the same as the first Ultimate Showdown. All weapons, talismans & glyphs must be of QL5 or less. Any potions, gadgets or kickbacks used must be of QL5 or less. Anything with a rarity must be either Green or Blue. Auxiliary weapons and Augments are not permitted. Signets are not permitted. All main wheel abilities are allowed.

    The prizes will be as follows. The winner of the Last Man Standing event will win either 1600 points & a Criterion or Fuse, or they can have 2400 bonus points. They will also claim the title of Ultimate Battlestar! from ArnBjorn, who won the previous competition. The winning team in the Team Knockout will recieve 600 points per team member, and each member will also recieve the title of Team Battlestar.

    This event will start at 1900 UTC, and is not anticipated to last more than 2.5 hours. We will be starting with Last Man Standing, in Seoul.


    12th: The Cabal Recruitment Fair

    Purely by coincidence, Katelin is running a Cabal Recruitment Fair on this day. Sanctuary has been invited to participate, so we are working it into our week's celebration. You can find more information by clicking here.


    13th: Fantastically Fashionable Dance Quiz

    This is about as convoluted as it sounds. We will be bringing back the all-time favourite that is the fashion contest. We hope to be welcoming some DJs to groove with us and host the evening, so stay tuned for more on that. We will also be including a bit of a trivia quiz in the evening. More details about each part are below. The host for this event will be Auroris.

    The event will start at 1800 UTC, and is anticipated to last about 3 hours. As always, it will be taking place in the Crusades, London.

    Fashion Show
    There will be 3 rounds of the fashion show, each one will be a different category. Points will be awarded out of 10 to each player, for a potential maximum of 30 points across the evening. Prizes will be awarded to the highest scorers overall, and there may also be a prize for the best single costume as decided by the judges.
    Round 1: Battle Garb - Outfit yourself ready for war!
    Round 2: Just Chillin' - Dress yourself ready to hang out and chill with Sanctuary.
    Round 3: The Secret World - Interpret the Secret World in your outfit. Show us what it means to be a Secret Worlder!

    There will be an 800 point prize for the winner of each round, as well as 1200 points for the overall winner. There will also be a 1200 point prize for the best outfit of the evening. Please note that nobody will be permitted to win more than one of these prizes. If the overall winner is also the winner of a specific round, that prize will go to the runner up. There will also be several titles awarded, appropriate to each round.

    Quiz
    There will be two rounds of 5 questions each. The rounds will be listed below. There will be a prize for the first person to answer each question correctly, and there may be a bonus prize for whoever can answer the most questions correctly.
    Round 1: The Secret World
    Round 2: General Knowledge

    There will be 600 points awarded to the winner of each round. The overall winner will also get 600 points.

    There will be a single prize of 300 points to the person who does the best dancing all night.


    We'll keep updating this post with more details when we have them, including details of more events, prizes and rules about pictures of pink ponies, so stay tuned.

    Given how much Sanctuary has done to help the TSW community (especially for new players)...
