Overview Edit

The Rogue Islands Race is a deathrace through the Rogue Isles for low-level villains. The concept was devised by Mothers_Love, a member of the EU City of Heroes Forum. The Event will be held on Halloween (31 October 2008) - which coincides with the Halloween Event 2008.

The idea of a Deathrace is that the contestants create a low-level character and must get from one place to another as quickly as possible. Although this sounds easy there are a number of factors that need to be considered. Certain Powersets have powers that can't be used as they would be unfair (such as Personal Force Field, Siphon Speed, Accelerate Metabolism and other speed enhancing powers.)

The complete proposal and subsequent discussion can be found on the City of Heroes European Forums on this thread

The event will be split into two parts. The Deathrace and a Costume Competition afterwards.

Evolution Radio and Music World Radio will be covering the event for anyone who'd like to hear what's happening too!

The Race Edit

The Route Edit

The race will run from Kalinda in Mercy Island via Port Oakes and Cap Au Diable and will finish in Grandville. The event will be held on the Union server.

To complete the race the participants will need to collect 13 CoV Exploration Badges. Mothers_Love has provided a screenshot slideshow run-through. The badges that are needed to be collected are:

The route that the competitors take is entirely down to their own discretion however the route suggested by Mothers_Love is the most direct. Remember though - You may not use flightpacks anywhere, or travel by sea in Cap Au Diable.

The Rules Edit

  • The race will be from Kalinda in Mercy Isle to the statue of Lord Recluse inside the main tower in the centre of Grandville
  • The race will be held on the Union Server, and participants need to meet beside Kalinda at 20.00 (8pm) GMT / 21.00 (9pm) CET. The race will start at 21.00 GMT/22.00 CET on Friday 31 October 2008
  • The criteria for entrants are:
  • The sea may not be used in Cap Au Diable
  • Inspirations are permitted (any size)
  • If anyone thinks that another character is cheating then they are encouraged to sing like a canary and grass up the offender. As the relationship of most Villains to the truth is often a very long distance one, evidence will be required.
  • Any master forger may want to think carefully before providing fake evidence. Mothers_Love can spot a fake at 50 pixels... and punishment will be swift and harsh!
  • Because of the nature of the prizes, this competition is only available to people who are over 18.
  • As the organiser, judge, jury and executioner, Mothers_Love's decision is final and no argument will be entered into. You have been warned!
  • All participants will be expected to have fun - fun levels will be monitored and anyone found to be fun-less will be fed to the Arachnoids
