Scavenger Hunt!

Recommended Posts

Who can collect the biggest variety of resources, beginning NOW.

To play:
1) Take a screen shot of your inventory NOW. These don't count.
2) Take a screen shot of your inventory LATER. Only "increased" resources count.
3) Post a claim on this thread including the number of different resources you have gained. Include screen shots to establish time stamp (or send them to me by PM).
4) If somebody later posts a supported claim with a larger number of resources, they take the lead.

Winner gets a wishpoint.

I will ask the peanut gallery (and disgruntled competitors) to review logs to be sure you didn't just shuffle things around with "friends" -- that you actually either harvested [s]or bought [/s]all such resources. [Or traded things you harvested during this period for other resources].

Just to be clear - I will allow unique things like "roswood plank" or "flask of sand" to be considered resources -- anything that can be used in crafting -- but not finished goods like "wooden drum" or "glass bottle". Unique items are much harder to get than herbs, water, and flowers...

[Emply memory stones count as one item, enchanted ones don't count at all.]

And of course, the runners-up get to keep all their own stuff. All I want is screen shots.

This contest will end when no further posts for a week, or beginning of Christmas Day. Winners determined by review shortly after.

I really like this quest but i have just 1 thing i would like to say regarding the rules.
"Winner gets a wishpoint" and "that you actually either harvested or bought all such resources" put in another way could basically mean that you can "buy" a wishpoint.
Someone can spend the entire week gathering what he can and someone else with coins who wants a wishpoint can just buy off resources from different people and still easily surpass the one who spent the entire week gathering.
Just my opinion.

The biggest issue actually is the big amounts of lumber or water around.

I am rather sure just buying 1.5k water or so would result in a rather high chance of winning this.

Yeah, i completely agree with this... You can essentially buy a wishpoint using this quest.

1.5K lumber is just ONE item. Score is how many DIFFERENT items you get.

Okay, so you must either harvest it yourself, or trade something you collected to get it.

No buying. No barter for things you already had.

Be prepared to explain where you got everything.

Original post edited to reflect these changes.

I like the idea here.

So essentially, to clarify, ending up with a list like:
+4 Water
+18 Unidentified Herbs
+6 Sand
+7 Branches

would win due to "diverse quantity", over a simple +265 Lumber. (or similar)

I like it, if so. Good luck to the questers!

Okay, this I understand. I have another issue though, how am I supposed to trade things I harvested during this period if I do not wish to give my resources away?

Say I have 14 lumber, mill 2 more, then trade them...from the rules it seems to not be allowed to trade 14 lumber and then mill more.

Udgard - yes, any resource increased counts as one item.

Maebius - yes, that would count as a score of FOUR, provided each of those was either new, or increased.

Shadow - I think we can look at net transactions. If you earn back what you traded away, then you're not "buying" a wishpoint with prior holdings. Similarly if you harvest a resource, sell it for gold, then use THAT gold to buy a resource, you can see that as equivalent to just harvesting and trading. The principle is that you simply must have "earned" the resources you are claiming during this period, not bought them with prior holdings. And be prepared to explain it all to the peanut gallery to justify that you "earned" the wp, not bought it. If one resource is "tainted" by commercialism, simply exempt it from your claimed "finds" in the scavenger hunt. We want a measure of your EARNINGS from the scavenger hunt period.

Okay, I get it now, let's continue with Shadow's example:

He sells off or otherwise gets rid of 14 lumber, outside the context of the scavenger hunt, then mills 2 new ones. yes, this would count as one item, provided he could prove to everyone's satisfaction that they were NEW, even though he actually had a decrease in count.

More examples:
Start with 10 lumber, mill 10 more, sell them for 2 gold. Only 1 gold would be considered "earned" and thus eligible to trade for more resources within the context of the scavenger hunt.

Continuing.
Mill 10 MORE lumber, and that 2nd gold becomes eligible retroactively.
Mill 1 MORE lumber, and this counts as an item itself.

Again, all provided you can prove to everyone's satisfaction what you did, and that you EARNED the wishpoint, not "just bought it".

It may result in a temporary shortage of resources, but the nice thing is they regenerate, albeit slowly at times, and after MurMas the quest will be over. Nothing permanent damaged, and the list of 'winners' could even be theoretically used for evidence of depletionists. :cool:

I hope that when the participants are to prove how they made the trade resource_to_coins, the other party will also be questioned to exclude cheating.
In the example above if someone actually sells of their 10 lumber for 1 gold that would be a seriously inflated price, enough to buy a considerable amount of various resources.
The coins they made through such trade should be more or less within market value or there is a high possibility of using friends/partners to buy off the resources.
