The Hunt for the Wolfsdottir - An Earth & Beyond Emulator Event

The hunt is on for the Wolfsdottir, an AWOL Defender and possibly a Progen genes-thief. This secret mission has ramifications that can shake the relations between the Jenquai and the Progen.

Contestants should be of only two classes, the Progen Sentinel or the Jenquai Defender. Those hunters should be subscribed to the [Sentinels] channel (if deploying a Sentinel) or the [Defenders] channel (if portraying a Defender).

Object of the Event: Pilots must find the Kaojin Destroyer named Wolfsdottir. Once discovered, the pilot has a choice to make. They can:
Report the x,y,z coordinates via Shift-T while targeting her
Attempt to capture her in either a Psi Shield or a Repulsor Field
Allow the Wolfsdottir to bribe them, allowing her to escape
Blow the cover off the secret mission by /tell Pakkratius the girl's location

Rules:
1. Secret Mission - no other race or classes may participate. They are not part of the story and not given the mission. Presence of any non-Sabine or non-Shinwa at the time of locating the Wolfsdottir forfeits the mission reward. Players may not group a Defender with a Sentinel. The two classes are not aware that they mutually hunt for the Wolfsdottir. Non-Defenders and non-Sentinels may not aid or point contestants to the Wolfsdottir.
2. The Wolfsdottir must hide outside pirate space and near a discoverable or hidden nav-point, space body (a planet or named planetoid), or just off to the side of any main nav-path. She may not enter Moto during the hunt. She may, in later months, add cloaking to the challenge. The hunted Kaojin may not hide in the Jenquai newbie sector, Europa. During the Event, the Wolfsdottir may not dock anywhere.
3. The pilot may [Roleplay] during the event so long as they do not betray the secret mission. Alternatively, role-play may occur on the [Defenders] or [Sentinels] channels as pilots of the same Faction may aid each other.
4. There can be only one victor who decides the fate of the Wolfsdottir. In later months and further Events, the victor toon is excluded from the Event. Please try another eligible class.
5. A dossier on the Wolfsdottir can be found in the Roleplaying sub-Forum under the thread "Post Your Character Bios."
6. Q/A can be /tell to Pakkratius (Event Manager) who will be the final judge on the victorious.
7. For more information on the story of the Event, read the novel, Wolf's Daughter by Pakkrat in the Roleplaying sub-Forum.
8. Contestants may not seek aid from Game Masters, Developers, or other Net-7 Entertainment Staff. Net-7 Entertainment Staff are excluded from the Event unless they are playing their "Player Account".
9. The Wolfsdottir has toggled her "Only my Friends can see my login/location" checkbox, so Friending her will not help.
10. The Event happens only once per month. Then the story resets itself the following month. Once a victor is declared on the appropriate channel, the Event is over for that month. The Wolfsdottir will only be logged on for several hours. The player of Wolfsdottir cannot stay online forever. If no immediate victor occurs, the Event may be continued to the next time the Wolfsdottir is logged on.
11. Thou shalt not get away with exploits of this Event. Net-7 News is watching. This list of rules is subject to change as exploits are found and dealt with.
12.  /tip command used on the Wolfsdottir, to probe the sector for her presence, allows the Wolfsdottir to move a number of nav-points in any direction she chooses as probes warn her of nearby hunters.  The number of navs she is pushed is equal to the number of /tips she receives.  This metagaming reaction may push the Wolfsdottir into a new sector that may have already been searched and cleared.  This rule is to curb /tipping by invited pilots and uninvited pilots of non-Event classes.  Please don't spoil the fun for those fully involved in the Event.

Rewards: Credits and Player-made systems will be given directly to the player via a /tip command and trading a class-appropriate system. Some systems include: Crimson Force Barrier, Defender's Do-Marou Shield, Diamond Scale, Platinum Scale, and other devices, (Including Agrippa Technology) that are a valued addition to the winning Sentinel or Defender. Later, more choices will be offered to the victorious pilot.

Helpful Notes: The Wolfsdottir is Overall Level 55-100, has no Build Skills and is generally found to be hunting mobs upon discovery. Her vessel, the Warchild is a black and red Jenquai Defender.
In later months, the Event will become more challenging. The Wolfsdottir may try to hide via Cloak, evade capture by impulse thrusting or use of Fold Space, or other skills. Pilots will eventually need the buff "See Cloaked".
Contestants should monitor the [Defenders] channel or [Sentinels] channel for dialogues from the cast for clues or updates, (such as a declared victor).
Once the Wolfsdottir levels up and out of the OL55-100 range, the Shinwa and the Sabine give up on finding her and will conclude the monthly Events.

Cast of Characters:
Wolfsdottir (JD), a member of the Kaojin, the Destroyers, a sub-sect of the Shinwa that believes all reality is illusion and thus they can engage the Dance of Annihilation without moral quandary. She will try to bribe the pilot.

Pakkratius (PS), the Anchor-rat for Net-7 News alongside anchorwoman Zona Mason. In the story, he is excluded from the secret mission due to his news affiliation. He will be the reward-giver to the pilot who betrays the secret mission to the press.

Jooli (JD), the mission-giver for the Shinwa Defenders. She rewards the victor if that pilot is a Defender.

Caiushellstrom (PS), the mission-giver for the Sabine Sentinels. He rewards the victor if the pilot is a Sentinel.

The Rewards keep growing and becoming attractive to even the most jaded of players, pilots. I can't go into details, but some of these rewards may turn the heads of even those Defenders or Sentinels that have attained that brick wall known as Overall Level 150. So, pilots of the Shinwa and Sabine, think twice before you write this Event off.

I intend to kick off January's Hunt Event next weekend, (the 11th and 12th) when I can utilize more than one computer to properly officiate it. Dig out your glass cannons and your jack-of-all-trades. Remember to subscribe to [Defenders] and [Sentinels] channels. Finally, remember that I am an earlybird and intend to be online as early as 6 a.m. Eastern U.S. The Hunt Event can start as soon the target toon is logged on and the in-character announcements transmit.

Well, you got some competition here Moulinneuf.   ;)    So don't worry about being the only one hunting her.  I'm sure there are others so you got your work cut out for you.    :D

I searched about two thirds of the systems mentioned in the story with no luck. I had to get to bed before anyone found her as far as I know. It would have been fun to know where she was hiding and who found her in the end though...

I played most of the day yesterday, it was nice to see the effort put forth by Pakkrat in the General channel. Kind of reminded me of live-with people discovering new content and having fun...

 

This event makes people look for something, not show them where it is. Console games of today coddle users by showing them which direction to find something, there is no adventure in that. I commend Pakkrat for this event!

Yes, many thanks to Packrat for running this. It was running a bit too long for my taste though. As interest increases, finding Wolfsdottir may speed up. Better collaboration may also speed things up, but I guess you'd have to organize groups on your own and agree on splitting the rewards to get an incentive to work together.

Congratulations to Amberlynne for doing her Sabine Order duty to report the x,y,z coordinates to the Sabine Order's greater fleet. The Wolfsdottir has been apprehended and taken to Detention Center Onorom. Magister Magna Amberlynne has been awarded a 200% Crimson Force Barrier and 10 million credits.

The /tip exploit may warrant a change. Players using other toons to /tip the target toon: your names are visible. This Event is for Progen Sentinels and Jenquai Defenders only.

If the GMs or Developers refuse or cannot disable the /tip command for the duration of the Event, I may have to alter the rules a little to curb /tip probing sectors for the target toon. One of the goals for this Event is to give the contestants something fun to do with the invite toons that can involve cooperation, actual gruntwork, paying attention to clues, and closing in on a target. In that light, should the /tip command be unable to refused or disabled:

12. /tip command used on the Wolfsdottir, to probe the sector for her presence, allows the Wolfsdottir to move a number of nav-points in any direction she chooses as probes warn her of nearby hunters. The number of navs she is pushed is equal to the number of /tips she receives. This metagaming reaction may push the Wolfsdottir into a new sector that may have already been searched and cleared. This rule is to curb /tipping by invited pilots and uninvited pilots of non-Event classes. Please don't spoil the fun for those fully involved in the Event.


Keep in mind that there are four ways to win, none of which are 'better' than the others. The four options allow for some character-searching development in the hunter toon.

1) Ctrl-T the x,y,z coordinates in either [Defenders] if Shinwa or [Setinels] if Sabine, shows dutiful obedience to the mission of the respective Faction.
2) Capture of the target via Psi Shield or Repulsor Field shows more diligent participation of the hunter toward the mission completion to the respective Faction.
3) Allowing oneself to be bribed by the Wolfsdottir (and the Kaojin) shows the pilot can be persuaded to let her slip from the grasp of the hunter's Faction.
4) Blowing the secret mission's cover by /tell Pakkratius the x,y,z, coordinates (thus allowing Net-7 News full coverage of the political stink-a-thon), shows that the pilot may be disenfranchised with their Faction or just plain "stirring the political pot".

All of these options are characterful means of winning the Event.

Again, this is for fun. It sure beats repetitive powerlevelling, raiding, endless crafting, and farming for drops.

For the Republic and Honor to the Jenquai!

 

     February's Hunt for the Wolfsdottir is slated for Saturday February 8 and may continue into Sunday, February 9 if she is not found.  Remember that the Event can start as early as 6 a.m. Eastern U.S. time.  See the rules above as well as the options on how hunters can win the Event.

 

    Again, I encourage this Event as a role-playing heavy occasion for the enjoyment for all interested in participating. 

 

Good luck, hunters!

Congratulations to SithJD who found and captured the Wolfsdottir in a Psi Shield. The Shinwa are now escorting the AWOL Defender girl to Androzari Penal Facility in Menorb where she can be properly held in Lotus Blossom's tender accommodations.

SithJD selected the DG weapon as a reward and 10 million credits. for astute and loyal duty to the Shinwa. The AWOL Defender was hiding in a crater near a nav tower on the surface of Risco Moon.

Remember that there are four ways to win, none better than the others. See above for options. The results of how you wish to win can bring forth more roleplay if desires.

The next Hunt for the Wolfsdottir is in March and remember that only Jenquai Defenders and Progen Sentinels may participate. Monthly Hunts will continue until the Wolfstottir levels up and beyond OL100.

The Hunt for the Wolfsdottir is sponsored by Net-7 News, Pakkrat Industries and Shadow's House of Pain.

Hail Shinwa Defenders and Sabine Sentinels!

 

     March's Hunt for the Wolfsdottir is penciled in for the Saturday the 8th and can continue into Sunday the 9th.  Remember that to be relatively fair to all timezones, the Hunt can start as early as 6 a.m. Eastern U.S.  Last Hunt in February took under 30 minutes.  This time I hope to hide the target toon better. 

 

     Remember that only Jenquai Defenders and Progen Sentinels may participate.  /tipping the Wolfsdottir can be seen and by whom so don't push her into new locations.  This is for fun and something to do.  Note also that there are four equivalent ways to conclude a Hunt.  See above for details.

 

     Note that there is a dossier with new pics in the Roleplaying sub-Forum.  See the above rules and Event details.

 

     I have added another sponsor:  Jamoos Work Shop has graciously added awards to the pool alonside Pakkrat Industries and ShadowWalker's House of Pain.

 

Good luck!

Honor to the Shinwa!

 

     Congratulations to Shinwa Defender Docdeath.  After some uncertain double-checking of Shepard sector, the Wolfsdottir was discovered (after being pushed) after two hours mission time at Redemption, the Freespacer station.  She had been hunting Scuttlebugs at an un-named capital hulk.  But she was pushed to Redemption causing uncertainty of her exact location.

 

     Upon arriving at the reclusive compound, Defender Docdeath closed in on her even as the Wolfsdottir turned and ran.  Use of her Fold Space did not deter the Defender from hurriedly Psi Shielding the Kaojin and then reporting her x,y,z coordinates.  Soon afterwards, the Jenquai fleet arrived to remove the AWOL girl to Androzari Penal Facility in Menorb, Castor.  There the girl will hopefully be brought back into the fold of the Shinwa from the nihilistic Kaojin Destroyers.

 

     Duty and honor, this is the hallmark of the Shinwa.

 

Stay tuned for next month's date for the Hunt For The Wolfsdottir.

April's Hunt for The Wolfsdottir is almost here. Starting this Saturday 4/19/2014 at 6am Eastern U.S., pilots of the Sabine Sentinels and the Shinwa Defenders mobilize to find or capture the Wolfsdottir. Pilots of those two classes who have not won past Hunts are invited to comb the sectors for the Kaojin Jenquai. The roleplay event rules can be read in the original post.

The Hunt for The Wolfsdottir is sponsored by Pakkrat Industries, ShadowWalker's House of Pain, Jamoos' Work Shop and Net-7 News.

Tune into General, Sentinels, Defenders, and Out-Of-Context chat channels to participate or observe in the event.
