    Dark Secrets on the Île d'Or - resolved

    Thanks for your feedback, everyone! Want some more statistics? I am happy with the outcome myself. I have no information regarding the idol sub-category. Let's wait and see.
  3. Some time back we have started out on this nice little challenge and I know what you all have been waiting for: The statistics of the Challenge! And here they are. Overall we have seen 34 entries for the three categories, however not evenly distributed so it makes 44% for Cat A, 35% for Cat B and 21% for Cat C. Participation by faction is as follows: Corrington: 24%, Eslandola: 9%, Oleon 35% and finally Sea Rats 32%. Wait… what are you saying? You were not expecting statistics? Well, nobody expects decent statistics these days. Ok, let me try again. I know what you have all been waiting for: The structural analysis of the titles chosen for the entries. We have seen a mix of languages with one French and one German title amongst the more English-written entries. Some were referencing famous pieces of literature (“the Heart of Darkness”, “Blades in the Dark”), some were plain information based (“Water Mill”, “Fishing Village”…) – actually that was 26% of the entries if you are interested in statistics – some were incomplete (“Suddenly…”) some were playing with language (“Sea-ing is believing”), some were repetitive (“Along the way”, “Along the way, again”) some were blaming their own teams (“Incompetent Adventurers”) and some others just did not fall into any of these categories. Wait… what are you saying? You were waiting for something completely different? Well, you are giving me a hard time here. You want to know how Colonel Brickinson is doing these days? No? Maybe you want to know about the results? Well, ok, here they are: Category A - Intelligence The call for mercenaries to come to the defence of Fatu Hiva was heard far and wide across the brick seas and a wide variety flocked to the settlement, searching for answers. As stories of the events were confused, most of the visitors to the Île d'Or started by questioning the locals. Native villagers seemed to be favoured over Oleon colonists; however, good information was obtained from a variety of sources Category A Results First Place: Ayrlego Native Pearling Village Second Place: Keymonus Juracàn's fishing point Third Place: LM71 Blackbird Bamboo Kayak Craftsman Rewards: As the overall non-leadership winner, Keymonus is awarded a free large property license of any type in the settlement of Fatu Hiva (micro scale build only required). Category B - Setting Out Many strange artefacts were found... many were also destroyed! Category B Results First Place: A tie between Captain Braunsfeld with Then they found something and What shall we do now? and Bart with Pagan Temple Second Place: Keymonus Blades in the Dark Third Place: Ross Fisher Destroying the Idol Rewards: Captain Braunsfeld and Bart are both awarded one free large arts and culture property license each in the settlement of Fatu Hiva (micro scale build only required). Keymonus receives one free medium arts and culture property license in the settlement of Fatu Hiva (micro scale build only required) and Ross Fisher receives one free small arts and culture property license in the settlement of Fatu Hiva (micro scale build only required). Category C - The Final Battle Although many have speculated that certain events on the island were caused by some sort of hallucinogenic plants this was actually not the origin of the trouble that had come to the island. A gang of fanatic rebels had hidden on the island and was finally crushed by force. Category C Results First Place: Keymonus The Last Battle Second Place: Captain Braunsfeld Suddenly... Third Place: Spud the Viking Struggle in the Jungle Rewards: Keymonus is awarded the title "Defender of Fatu Hiva" and a free large plantation license (micro scale build only required). Captain Braunsfeld is awarded a free medium plantation licence (micro scale build only required) and Spud the Viking is awarded a free small plantation licence (micro scale build only required). All free plantations are to be located in Fatu Hiva. [writeup by Ayrlego and myself]

  8. If you let me know the outcome, I could make up my mind and propose a hopefully funny writeup.
  9. Been out of touch for a while - do we already have the results? Or do we get to vote (did I miss that)?
