Heya, buggies are filling my vaults and it's due for another, welcome to the July Crafter's Market and Destruction Derby!
For those of you new to market, it was established in beta before auction was created (nearing 10+ years now!). Almost always on the
first Saturday of the month, it was the main way crafters sold their wares. Now, it's a way for the community to
get together and have a little fun! I do welcome crafters to come set up a tent and sell your wares, we usually get at least a raid full of people.
You can find more info in the history thread here, note the old forums are down now so the links won't work
This month the market will be located in Rest Stop S1, (north of the town, south of the pvp zone) to accommodate our event
Starting at 1PM CST (GMT-6) on July 13th
Market Site: /waypoint 4119533 3736891
Countdown Timer here (DM me if I messed it up, wouldn't be the first time )
All level players, and GMs are welcome to attend!
For events, I'll be hosting a combat buggy demolition derby, trivia, and plenty of Instacrafts. The tournament will be hosted inside the pvp zone to the north. Players over level 15 will receive a de-buff, but that shouldn't be a problem for participants and spectators. I'll have tents setup for ramps, and campfires to mark the bounds. Do be careful heading around the left side of the zone, Project 432 and his handlers aren't too friendly. I won't be handing these out the vehicles advance, but will have many ready for the event. if you're curious about seeing the derby in action, video/pics can be found here (thanks vit!)
Combat Buggies will be handed out to as many people who meet the requirements, and want to participate. It'll be first come first serve, but I will have enough for everyone.
Requirements to participate in tournament:
Already have a combat buggy (I'll throw some ammo your way)
Must be lvl 25 with 55+ dex, you'll receive 3 dyes, a combat buggy, and ammo.
Rules for the derby are simple:
Be the last buggy standing to win a prize.
If your buggy is destroyed, head to the sidelines and wait for the next round.
**Don't go past the marked play area or you will be disqualified**
Spectators can watch from the opposite side of the fence, or on top of the satellite dish.
Trivia will be announced in region, first to answer correctly wins a prize. All my trivia is fallen earth related, some questions easier than others. I'll also be doing /roll for items in the main insta team. Contact me if you have any questions, or would like to donate towards the event. Hope to see ya there!
Edit: Thanks to all who came and our donors especially! I'll be taking a break for market in preparation for the 10 year anniversary event in Sept, but expect it to pick back up after then!
