Qlippoth's Blight was hard to overcome for many villages and communities on the continent. Compendium was no different. Unfortunately, the city lost most of its livestock to the disease. Now that rebuilding has finished, Melarue Lydril and Duchess Elizabeth Kane are trying to restore the city's resources and economy to what it once was. To replenish the herd that had died from the Blight, the Duchess is sending 20 heads of cattle down the Southwatch Road. She calls for any and all individuals that would be willing to drive the cattle south to Compendium safely. There have been rumors of incidents and trouble along the Southwatch Road, so she expects the trip to a challenge for various reasons. Payment will be given upon arrival at Compendium for the trouble. Each cow that safely arrives will bring the group 500r, to be split among themselves. If all 20 cows survive and make it, they will get to split 10,000r.

When: March 27th @ 6:30 EST
Where: Begins in Eastwatch and ends at Compendium
What: A cattle drive
Rating: Violent for the cows. Moderate for the players. :^)

OOC NOTES:

  • This event is a little different than most I see. It's a different premise, and as someone pointed out to me, it could be fun and interesting, or it could be a slog. Hopefully the former.
  • Players will begin in Eastwatch with 20 cows. The task is to escort them south along the road directly to Compendium. There may be obstacles and encounters along the way to make it a challenge RP wise, but players will also be escorting minecraft mobs, which is an additional challenge in and of itself.
  • If anyone us caught breeding cows along the way to try and boost numbers, you'll catch dysentery and die. (I'm only partly joking, but do not spoil the game by cheating.)
  • It is up to players to bring wheat, leads, or whatever they think will help them the most.
  • Kamaoe Solus and Squidziod will be our lovely DMs for the evening.
To sign up for the drive, whether you are a citizen of the Kalstaat, a simple farmer, a mercenary, or whatever have you, just fill out of the form below. It is welcome to anyone, but there will be a party limit of 10. The slots are first come first served.

This is super cool, only definitely out of my timezone. Great thinking to think of such an event, Niah!
Do people get more points if they end up with more cows on the finish line?
So much posibilities to make this competitive, with someone herding cows, another sheep, another chickens, they all require different food, that'd be dope to see xD
Anyway, have fun, amazing idea!

No. If people magic more cows into existence, breed them, pick up extras along the way, that's cheating and I'll kick their butts.
Oh I meant like, if someone loses some cows along the way do they get less points than those with more cows haha. I don't want them to get dysentery hahaha

Seven hours from now! I have dispensers for Leads and for Wheat, so that should help the transportation OOCly.
