IT'S BAAAAACK!


Greetings to all Therans. The Heralds will be holding the Great Theran

Race. For those of you who don't know what the race is, it's a race that

goes all over the realm. You can purchase a ticket from a Herald, 750 coins

per ticket. They will then start the race for you. Your time will be

recorded and then posted on the Board outside the Mocker's Tavern. You will

give your ticket to Heraldic kitten in North Square. The kitten will will

give you your first riddle and the race will start.


The Rules:


1. No recalling. This is you going across Thera to test your wits and

body.


2. No flying or riding on a steed, whether a Knight's steed or a nightmare

stallion.


3. No asking for help from anyone other than a Herald.


The Herald who is running recording your time will be able to give you three

hints, but it will add thirty(30) seconds to your total time. Break any

rule and you will be disqualified.


The race starts on Jan 27th. Starting when the surge starts and ends on Feb

3rd after the day's surge.

How about teleport pills? I feel like that would be an interesting wrinkle.

haha teleport pills... i don't think that would be particularly conducive to running but you can feel free to use that i guess...

hmm, never thought about the nexus. good point, tiqa! i would say that's ok to use since everyone has access to it.

Everyone has access to flying too... Flying scrolls, healer spells, flight potions... Sets that give flight... etc.

Thanks Vanisse! I did this race once before and it was really fun. I would recommend to everyone to try it. It tests you knowlege of the game, where you saw certain things. I`m not sure if the nexus would have been helpful before, but being competitive and wanting to try to win, just wanted to check.

When I did it before, I thought it would be just a race, not like a scavenger hunt type of thing. That made it 100X better! Looking forward to trying it a second time!

Thanks!!!

yes i don't think it is necessary to restrict flying. just recalling and gating really, since hometowns might be less advantageous for some, and gating for obvious reasons.

The primary reason for flying I would say is so that the lower ranked people can have the same advantage for moving around that the 50's do. IE a level 20 can't run even a third of the distance that a 50 can.

Just thought of an interesting loophole. Restricting flying, gating, etc... okay.

Ultimate Theran race strategy. Die before starting the race so that you have infinite ghost movements... BOOM! Winning.
