Opening Ceremonies will start in Rivendale at the top of the mountain where Arawen is standing and finish at the Kin house. Our torch will be fireworks. Anyone who wants to actually be a torch bearer will be given fireworks and a spot on the path from Rivendale to the Kin house. Anyone who does not actually want to run with a torch can still meet up and run with the group from any city along the way or meet us at the kin house. Once the torch makes it to the kin house we will set off all the fireworks at once and the Olympics will be officially open - yay!
Our 1st game is a chicken run to Bree. Meet up at Sandsons farm to begin the run. The starting point is in the planter boxes. Everyone who is a chicken will want to be in vent because you cannot team while in chicken form. We will need someone to start the race and someone to be the judge to take the screenshot to determine the winner. Starter just needs to "say" the count down - 1,2,3 go to signal the start of the race in case we have people that don't have vent. The finish line is the west Bree gate.
Copper ore gathering. Meet up in MD crafting area so that everyone who is a prospector can purchase the lowest level tool and use only that during this challenge so that no one has any advantage over another. Also no use of horses or run speeds to get around the map. You have 20 min to collect as much copper ore as you can. When time is up - you need to link your results into kin chat.
Fence walking is next. Meet up at the Kin house and then go behind it to the feilds. Starting point is the the fence by the little door on the building. This is not a race so you do not have to go fast. Last person standing without falling off is the winner.
Leap Frog. Meet up at the kin house. Starting point is a corner of the 1st green field behind the kin house. You must find a partner to do this race. Just hop over each other with less than two steps per hop. You shouldn't actually have to step at all. Continue hopping over each other around the inside of the fence and just in the 1st green field. Finish is where the race started.
Hide and Seek. This is a lot of fun but a little complicated. Everyone meets up at the west Bree gate. Then all people interested in playing will split up into being either a hider or a seeker. Seekers step out of Bree and wait on the bridge. Everyone must have names turned off and not be in a party! Hiders must put on a costume to help determine that they are part of the game and then go hide - you must be outside of the buildings but inside the gates. Once you have your spot chosen you can not move for any reason. Type into kin chat when you are ready. Once all hiders are ready - the seekers have 10 min to find as many hiders as possible. 1 point for every hider found. You must call out when you find someone and also what their name is. Vent is good for this but kin chat will be fine as well. Judges must help keep track of how many people each person finds. Once the 10 min are up - Hiders become the seekers and seekers become the hiders and this second round is played just like the 1st. Most points wins - in the event of a tie we can either have a play off round with the winners or roll and highest rolls win.
Beginner fishing. To make this fair you must have less than 5 levels of fishing in your hobby deed. Any person who does not have the hobby started can meet up at MD in the Bird and Baby Inn to get your pole. Only lowest level poles can be used for this game. The fishing spot will be the pond in Hobbiton which lies under the "N" in Hobbiton. Everyone pick your spot and when everyone is ready a 20 min timer will start. At the end of the 20 min link your purple fish to kinchat - the person with the most purple fish wins.
Tag. The min size for groups to work in the tag area is 4 but we can have more then that as needed. All people who want to play will be split up into groups and we will have 10 min rounds. To start the game - go inside and have someone click on the stand. Its random who ever becomes the 1st "It" person. You must not run out of the arches in the doorway and again no run speeds or sneaking. The goal is to be "It" the least. Whenever you do become It though you must call out your name in vent or type a 1 in kin chat. Judges help keep score. Lowest score wins if anyone ties we can have a playoff or roll to determine the winners.
Chicken swimming. Again go to Sandsons farm to gain chicken form and get in vent to hear everyone. Same type of start with someone "saying" the countdown. The actual starting point of this race though is on the Bywater bridge and you swim towards the bog. The finish line is where the water is low and turns into the bog.
Farmer/cook relay. This is a timed challenge and you need to find a partner - 1 cook and 1 farmer and only lowest tools used and no horses or run speeds. The challenge is to create as much Roast Pork as possible. You have 20 min and start at the MD crafting area. At the start of the 20 min farmers must purchase the onion supplies- run to the fields and grow as many onions as they dare. When they think they have enough onions they run back to their partner cook who will then take the onions and purchase the pork shank and butter needed and cook as many dishes as possible until time runs out. The team with the most completed dishes linked to kinchat will win. Any ties will roll to determine winning team.
Wood gathering. Starting point will be in MD crafting area to purchase lowest level tools. You have 20 min to get as much rowan wood as possible - link to kin chat at end of time. No horses or run speed.
Backwards fence walking. Same starting point in the fields behind the kin house - same rules except that it is backwards on the fence. In between each fence section though you will need to run forward to be able to jump back up on the fence.
Nen Harn Freestyle. Start on the Southern Shore and swim to the Northern Shore. Touch the shoreline and then swim backwards all the way back to the southern shore! First one there wins!
Brandywine endurance swimming. Start at the Brandywine Bridge, we jump off the bridge and swim north. The first fork on the map that heads East, take that (right turn) who ever gets to the waterfall first wins!
Chicken run to foraken Inn. Start in planter boxes at Sandsons farm with someone "saying" countdown. Finish line is on the porch of the Forsaken Inn.
Scholar item collecting. Start in MD crafting area. You have 20 min to find as many scholar items as possible- without killing anything. Again no run speeds or horses and link results to kinchat.
Backwards horse race. Level 20 horses. Meet up at the horse farms in Bree. We will use the training track as our race track. You must only move backwards around the track. No turning forwards to jump over anything. Be aware you cannot jump going backwards and that the puddles are deep enough in the very center to cause the shorter people to lose their horse so plan your path carefully.
Prospector/jewler relay. You must find a partner. Start in MD crafting area and pick up lowest tools. You have 20 min for prospector to go find as much copper ore as they dare to get it back to the jewler in time to make as much copper jewlery as they can. Link results to kin chat.
3 man swimming. Groups of three will form when all who are participating arrive at the southern end on Nen Harn's lake. There are three islands in the form of a triangle, each of the three members will be on of of the three islands. The member in the southwestern most island will start the race and head west to that island where that member will head north to the big island. The third member will then take the final leg southward tot he first island where the first finisher wins!
Chicken race around shire horse track. Meet at sandsons farm to get chicken form then travel to the start of the shire horse track. Someone "says" countdown. 1st chickens over finishline win.
3 man relay. For this race you need to find a team of 3 people. One person able to have a level 35 horse, a second with a level 20 horse and the 3rd will be running. The starting point will be the west Bree gate. The 1st leg is the level 35 horse and they will run to the Brandywine Bridge where their partner will be standing with their level 20 horse at the start of the wood on the bridge. The 2nd leg is from there to the well in the center of Bywater. Once there the 3rd leg person starts running to the finishline which is the wood statue in the center of MD.
Chicken run until death. Start at Sandsons farm in the planter box with someone "saying" the count down. Run as far towards rivendale as you can before you die. When you die call out your location on vent or type in kin chat. Whoever makes it the fathest wins.
Chicken run to Thorins Hall. Starting place is in the planter box with someone "saying" the countdown. The finishline is the top of the stairs at Thorins Hall.
Forester/woodworker relay. You must find a partner. Start is in MD crafting area to pick up lowest level tools. You have 20 min for the forester to gather as much rowan wood as they dare to bring it back to thhe wood workerto make as many rowan bow staves as they can. Link to kin chat.
