Turkey Day Event

Postby Derp_looks_like_a_Lady » Sat Sep 03, 2016 9:03 am

First part: Onslaught Pa-raid. (it would be a solo raid) The gobblin goblins are descending on Glenfort again just as the Harvest Festival has begun. Phase 1: onslaught 10e, 10 seconds to slaughter as many parading goblins as you can. They would be goblins from the GK raid but auto-level to the toon. Phase 2: onslaught 10e, 10 seconds to kill the Gobblin King multiple times, which is an overstuffed version of GK. He has really let himself go! He would drop an invitation to Direhorn's house for a Harvest Day feast, which opens a dungeon. Also, the final drop always includes a large energy pot, to facilitate getting into the dungeon.

Second part: Dungeon. 20e to enter and then fight through Direhorn's drunken relatives and overenthusiastic pets. The 8th part is Gobblin King dressed as a turkey. (his attacks could include one called Gobble). The 9th part is Direhorn dressed as a Pilgrim. The final part is Mrs. Direhorn dressed as Pocahontas. She is not happy that you're crashing her party!! After her defeat, she challenges you to "take it outside" where you can settle it in her arena of death. The drops include another large energy pot (for the next pa-raid) and a resolve pot (for the arena) plus an invitation to open the arena. (level 10 and above for the arena combat?)

Third part: Backyard showdown. After the dungeon, an arena like the PvP coliseum appears. You will face the three bosses from the dungeon in PvP style combat, so no runes or health pots allowed. Defeat all three but I'm not sure if each one should be separate matches or successive in the same match - it would depend on their attacks and health points vs. toons.

The event currency from all three parts could be goblin handprint turkeys (2 fingers and a thumb). They could be used to purchase recipes in the arena store like Hasty Pudding - speeds you up for 10 seconds (not usable in PvP) and Mama Direhorn's Stuffing - gives you excess health points, potentially above maximum, but slows you down until the excess hp are gone (not for PvP comsumption). The pudding and stuffing would be potential drops during the raid and dungeon. Another drop/recipe might be Vileberry Sauce - spiked berry relish that makes you tipsy, increasing damage output but lowering accuracy.

Also available: enchant recipes for swiftness (weapon speed minus 0.1 per tier) and grab bag (weapon has a percent chance per tier to apply a random condition to the opponent, from burn/bleed/poison to slow to stun to haste, oops!)

Gear could include Pilgrim and Native American wear or Turkey legs and a tail or a Turkey head??

The parade raid would be open all the time but the dungeon requires the invitation from the parade each time. The arena is open all the time after the dungeon is finished the first time, even for toons that cannot do PvP. (Alternately, players could get a taste of PvP before level 10).

The event could run from the Monday before US Thanksgiving until the following Tuesday (or until December 1st?)

Turkey Day isn't recognized internationally.

I asked several people in the UK what they thought of when I mentioned turkeys and pilgrims and they all said, "Oh, you mean Thanksgiving? We're British not stupid." The Canadians just said that they celebrate it earlier, as we know.

For that matter Christmas, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Halloween and even Talk Like a Pirate day are not commemorated in many parts of the world, or especially not in the way the US does. :0)

How about a Turkey Days event in honor of our friends on the Turkish chat channel?

Was just thinking, by the same logic we could ask for a Guy Fawkes Night event. It's about as similarly recognised abroad as 'Turkey Day'. Maybe they're closer in theme than we think, both are slightly murky celebrations connected to dodgy historical events...

I'd burn you in effigy as an event if it was fun enough... ;0)

You'd have an event for opening a can of beer! Actually...Beer Day! That's got to be a thing. There's a day for everything else...
