    Default The Festival of Olladra comes to Stormreach!

    The Festival of Olladra

    Olladra, the goddess of Feast and Fortune, can be both playful and fickle. As tribute to this mercurial goddess, the Coin Lords will be celebrating the Festival of Olladra on 4 Lharvion* by giving away several Intimidating Daggers of Paralyzing Acid! This exclusive event item also has a lower tiered version called the Intimidating Dagger of Acid. The Coin Lords have a limited number of both daggers and will be giving them to a lucky few.

    The Overview:

    Between the dates of 25 Nymm and 1 Lharvion*, send a message to Sir Lawrence d’Deneith via the Sivis Messaging Boards. The subject of this letter should contain four numbers of your choice (each between 1-20), your name, and home world. Sir Lawrence will disqualify any letters which vary from this format, he will also disallow any letters which arrive before or after the specified dates.

    NOTE: DO NOT SEND YOUR ENTRY TO ME. ALL ENTRIES MUST BE PMed TO SIR LAWRENCE BY CLICKING HERE.

    NOTE: While Sir Lawrence does have a + in-game, his forum name does not. Send forum PM's to "Sir Lawrence". And while all contest info must be in the subject line, you must have at least one character in the PM body text. - Thanks to MB.
    On 4 Lharvion*, Sir Lawrence will be visiting each home world and roll publicly for the winning numbers. Prizes will be awarded after 11 Lharvion when the daggers have arrived from Zilargo.

    Rules:

    Between the dates of June 25-July 1 send +Sir Lawrence a PM on the DDO.com forums with your pick of four numbers each between 1-20 (for example: 3, 12, 12, 19) IN THE SUBJECT LINE. Be sure to include your character name and server. This information must appear in your subject line of the PM only! +Sir will delete any PM that does not have all required information in the subject line. Below is an example of a proper entry. The subject line should look like this:

    Bob, Argonnessen, 2, 11, 18, 20

    Event PMs will only be accepted between 12:01 am eastern June 25, 2007 and 12:00 pm eastern July 1, 2007. You may submit only one entry - extra PMs will be deleted.

    Players who picked all four die rolls for their server will win a +2 Intimidating Dagger of Paralyzing Acid! Anyone who correctly selected three of the four numbers will receive a +1 Intimidating Dagger of Acid.

    On July 4th, 2007, +Sir will visit each server to roll the winning numbers (See below for scheduled times.)

    The Fine Print

    * 25 Nymm through 1 Lharvion = June 25th through July 1st. 4 Lharvion and 11 Larvion are July 4th and July 11th respectively.

    Separate winning numbers will be determined for each server with no limit as to how many winners are allowed for either prize.

    There are is no guarantee that each server (or even any server) will have a winner.

    Winners will be announced on the forums and the prizes will be delivered through in-game mail by +Sir Lawrence in the middle of July. Only one dagger per person - people who win the +2 Intimidating Dagger of Paralyzing Acid do not also get the +1 Intimidating Dagger of Acid.

    Only properly formatted entries will be entered in the Festival. Reminder: a proper entry is a PM sent to +Sir Lawrence via the DDO.com forums that includes your name, server, and four numbers between 1-20 in the subject line.

    Only one entry per account. Only entries whose numbers were exact, will win. There is no entry fee. You do not need to be present (i.e., logged into DDO during the drawing) to win. All active DDO accounts may participate. +Sir will have a record of all entries and will determine the winners for each server accordingly.

    Quarion, you may want to clarify that while Sir Lawrence does have a + in-game, his forum name does not. Send PMs to Sir Lawrence. And while all contest info must be in the subject line, you must have at least one character in the PM body text.

    A suggestion: perhaps consider other ways to reward people in game. Loot is nice, but seems to be used for everything.

    - Titles would certainly be welcome - 'Favored Of Olladra' or something would be appropriate, or let people use their Forum titles in game or something.
    - In-game perks such as reduced vendor prices at House J
    - A free Action point

    Will these daggers be Bound? I.e. should we submit the character name that we want the item on, or will any of our chars do?

    Does "YOUR NAME" = your forum name or the name of the character to whom you want the prize to be sent?

    Does the order of the numbers have to be exact to win or is it any order along as the numbers are the same? i.e. I pick 20 17 16 14 and Sir rolls 14 17 20 16

    Odds of Winning: 1/160,000

    As much as I like contests, isn't this one maybe a bit of a stretch as far as the chances of anyone winning?

    But hey, on the other hand, we all know how well the randomization function works for dice rolling so chances are it'll be a combination of rolls along the following: 1, 1, 3, 1. Who hasn't seen that combination before?

    On a more serous note, contests are appreciated no matter how trivial they are. A contest like this would be nice to have every week. Even something automated. Reintroduce the Gamblers Den but this time allow us, the players, to do the gambling there. We could have the Halfling Mafia doing numbers with little kobold runners taking the bets. Orc bookies. Maybe the trolls relocated out of Sorrowdusk and have become enforcers for the Hobfather.

    Theres a world of possibilites!

    Talking second the motion

    Initimidating Dagger of Paralyzing Acid? Yet Another Unused Loot Decoration? (YAULD)

    I like the titles idea - Favored of Olladra. I second the motion.

    Also, whenever character(s) with the title of Favored of Olladra opened a chest, the chest automatically generates +1 Loot to a random item in the chest?

    So....many....numbers..dates..dice.... GAAAAH *falls over from the gravity of the number crunching*

    Will Sir Lawrence be doing any other festival related activities once the formality of the rolling and winner (or not winners as the case may be) is over with? I mean... it IS a festival after all, so I would warrent that entails some manner of... organized socializing ^_~

    Post Script: Yep, that does it, +Sir is getting a bag of dice delivered to him by care of whoever is at Gencon this year :X

    How about an extra character slot as a prize too?

    Your character name, please. This way I can make sure it goes out to the right winner(s).

    Numbers do not have to be in any order. So if you picked 20,18, 2, 15, and I rolled 12, 18, 20, 2 you could still win.

    Good point. Will Sir Lawrence be rerolling duplicate numbers to simulate a "Pick4 Lotto"? Or is 1 1 1 1 an option?

    Yes, guessing the same number (such as 1) more than once in your guess is valid. So, yes, you could guess 1, 1, 1, 1. SO you have to ask yourself one question: Do you feel lucky? Well, do ya? (okay, maybe two questions.)

    Default question

    Is it one entry per RL person, or one entry per character?

    Thank you Turbine(and +Sir)

    Wow, guessing 4 numbers correctly to win a prize, and 3 just to get a consolation prize sounds pretty tough.

    Couldn't people that get 1 or 2 numbers right get a, say, "+1 Somewhat Frightening Dagger of Citric Acid"?
