    THE GREAT PUMPKIN RUN | ABOUT & SIGNUPS

    [​IMG]
    Event organizers from every town have banned together to give Pandora something a little extra special for the spooky season. Now introducing Pandora's first ever Great Pumpkin Run, an event that covers all five towns in Pandora!

    Our beloved towns all need some extra decorating this year, and who better to help them all out than Pandora's residents. A local farmer has provided us with some special pumpkins for the race. The goal? Get each pumpkin to its new home somewhere in Pandora.

    The catch? That pumpkin you'll be carrying will be an extra special passenger. These aren't your ordinary pumpkins. Each one has a personality to it, and they'll be your ever-commenting travel companion as you carry them across Pandora. These Pumpkins will hang onto your backs like a backpack, using their vines to support themselves. These pumpkins don't like to move too fast, don't like sudden relocations, and don't like to get too high off the ground. Moving faster than a human, or moving in an unnatural way (via flight or teleportation or whatever else you can think) will cause the pumpkin to let go and fall to the ground. If the pumpkin hits the ground at any time, you and your pumpkin are out of the race.

    The goal? To carry your pumpkin across Pandora, to your destination town. Everybody who finished the race receives a prize, and gets to contribute to Halloween decorating!

    Mechanics
    • Racers will be organized into random groups of 3, all with the same starting and ending location.
    • Every racer will be given a randomized pumpkin, pulled from the list of pumpkin personalities -- the player is in charge of writing their pumpkin during the race.
    • Every group will be given a list of 5 OOC goals. These are simply event or thread prompts to take advantage of during your character's run. The group thread must include at least 3 of these goals in order to complete the race. Once all 3 goals are completed, players are free to write about their character crossing the finish line and completing the race.
    Race Distance, Breaks, and ExpectationsEvery racer begins in a town of their choice and (if starting in Pandora Town) run to the town of their choice. For racers starting in Cascade Bay, they will actually be starting on the Cascade Bay docks, on the Pandora Town side. For racers running to or from Morhall, the Morhall end of the race is actually in the lower reaches of Mt. Pompeii, so no mountain climbing required. The Cascade Bay run can be finished in a single day by most runners.

    Water, food, and camping supplies are provided free of charge. Rest stations are positioned regularly along the routes, even when they cut through open wilderness. Camping supplies are dropped down by flyers up above when a runner stops for the night, complete with water, energy drinks, and food.

    Distance & Average Time (based on the average marathon running speed of 4.5 miles per hour)
    • Pandora Town to Cascade Bay Docks / Cascade Bay Docks to Pandora Town = 26 miles (6 hours)
    • Pandora Town to Morhall / Morhall to Pandora Town = 65 miles (14.5 hours)
    • Pandora Town to Horizon / Horizon to Pandora Town = 180 miles (40 hours)
    • Pandora Town to Misty Hollow / Misty Hollow to Pandora Town = 120 miles (26.5 hours)
    These times do not include breaks. All runners are expected to take breaks, even overnight ones. The race will be open for two weeks.

    Race Quick Facts
    • Participants can begin in any town. If starting in Pandora Town, they will have a choice of which town to run to. If starting outside of Pandora Town, than Pandora Town will be their destination.
    • Every participant will have one pumpkin companion. This pumpkin has a simple face on it, can speak, think, and has a particular personality. The pumpkin uses it vines to hang onto their runner's back like a backpack.
    • This race is designed for normal human running speeds only. If vehicles or travel powers are used that cause abrupt changes in location, or carries them to speeds greater than 30 mph, their pumpkin will fall from their back and the runner will be disqualified. Pumpkins will also fall off if the user flies or levitates more than a few feet off the ground.
    • Upon reaching the end of the race, their pumpkin will slide off of their back and turn into a jack-o-lantern, with a carving that is reminiscent of both the pumpkin's personality and their racer. These jack-o-lanterns stay fresh forever. They'll remain in the destination town as Halloween decorations through the holiday, but after that your character can take it home!
