Summary of Public BB 26198: the Divine Diamond Gem Quest will be looking
to begin immediately after the Cornelian prize-giving (type WINNERS to
see who is getting honoured). The prize-giving starts at 11pm Avalon TIME,
which is 6PM Eastern/New York, 3PM Pacific/Los Angeles, Midnight CET/Paris
timezone. Avalon clock follows London time despite none of us - I presume
- living there these days. DIAMOND GEM QUEST will not commence later than
midnight by the Avalon clock, aiming for half hour pro-active preparation
phase and then nine rounds with a five hour duration (at most).
Typing RULES from noon will show you an up-to-date rundown of the Diamond
Gem Quest format, competition region and round'n'rules lowdown. At the end
of the RULES docs will be listed half a dozen HELP <associated topic>
whose combined contents should see you in good shape re: knowing what's
going on and why, etc. The divine diamond is one of the Ordination's
most sought-after gems, with superb powers, and this gem quest will
also have eight category prizes so not only are all players welcome to
compete but all levels, skillworth and \"how rusty am I? \" questors will
have a realistic shot at winning material gain as well as the obvious
reconition and respect those - for example - listed in WINNERS should
receive at tonight's prizegiving (MC'd by Tyranis, who ran the Cornelian
My public BB (type READBB PUBLIC 26198 from within Avalon and DO try
to read the entire contents as this month is a once-in-a-decade phase in
the land's history) details the above but also explains what we've
decided to do as regards activations of new abilities, battlephase
context and the week ahead. Denouement weekend following rather than
risk overburdening the Diamond Gem Quest. I think if you look at
TEAMS and RULES and consider the spread of players in even the 48 core
team members, you'll see the reasoning for the decisions made.
Any questions: ask Genesis, or Tyranis, or your patron, or e-mail to
email@example.com - and if you are receiving this info by
mailshot, remember to look up the benefit available for battlephase
involvement and specifically returning historical players. They will remain
in place for another 9 days. Good luck all!
