    This thread will detail the variety of ways the staff can assist you with your event along with the proper steps to take to receive staff assistance and trophy's for your event.

    Recommended Steps
    • Make a detailed post explaining the event
    • Include detailed instructions on how a player can participate
    • Include detailed rules
    • Include detailed times, in multiple time zones if possible (est, cst, pst recommended)

    In order to have the staff broadcast the event via the town crier system include the following in the post
    • Town Crier: Line 1
    • Town Crier: Line 2 (or More)
    • Duration: (15-60 Minutes)

    Example Town Criers
    • Town Crier 1: Signups for tonight's Grimoire Fight Night are now open!
    • Town Crier 2: To sign up take the gates available in Britain and Buc's Den
    • Town Crier 3: This is an overworld event so be careful when participating.
    • Duration: 30 Minutes

    In order to have trophies provided for the event we will need to register the event in our news feed with the following information.
    • Event Name
    • Event Link
    • Event Date & Time
    • Event Icon, or Image (Staff assistance is available)
    • Event Hosts
    • Requested Trophy Names

    Example News Item

    Note: Event trophies, platinum value and color will be determined completely at the staff's discretion based on the amount of participation in the event. Any well posted event, with this information provided will qualify for trophies for the event winners.

    Large scale events, on rare occasions can be provided with an additional reward such as a named item, colored item. Examples of such events would be the week long fishing tournaments & guide writing competitions.

    News Icons
    • You may provide your own 250x120 pixel image in either the png, gif or jpg formats.
    • You may provide a high quality image that can be converted into a new icon.
    • You can request staff assistance, time permitting, in creating an icon for your event.
    • You can select from the stock icons listed below, using the names defaulted or provide your own tag line.

    Best staff ever! Thanks guys.

    Would we be able to buy platinum trophies for an event if we want a specific one to be given out? So if I want the top participant to get the Pegasus trophy can I just pay 10 plat? and any additional rewards would be at staff's discretion.

    Sure, if you provide the platinum you are welcome to select a specific trophy for your event. However depending on the scale the staff are always willing to provide trophies.

    If you ran an event that had 8 participants, we would normally do a 4 platinum value trophy. You could pay the difference (6) and have that changed to a Pegasus if you so desired. The color and naming would still require staff approval. General event trophies are almost always ore colored.

    I'm not a fisherman, but I love this event. The different titles on the weights of the fish is very cool, and the participation is also :) Good Job Zy

    Thanks. Wasn't concerned about trophies so much since Telamon has been generous in the past in that arena. I hoped to get the event advertised on the website. I included the info and inquired if anything else was needed/required. I know Chris is busy so no biggie. :)

    Hey - I can tell you that in previous years of fantasy football, there were no trophies as it was an event held outside of the game. Sounds like a similar situation, but @Chris can verify.

    I think it would be neat to see a poker tournament trophy. I realize that fantasy football is something held outside of UOR specifically, but the poker tournaments are as much in game as they can be given that there are no actual mechanics to support the game itself inside UO, so an outside source had to be used for that purpose.
