[20 meters behind Dexter's, you finally find the office of the Darkwind Gazette, situated in a rickety hovel that is slowly falling to bits and pieces. It is often said that the Darkwind Gazette bases its economical survival in the lawsuits filed against visitors who inadvertently destroy parts of the office as they cross the threshold and walk up to the counter.]

[A sign above the counter reads:]

Welcome to the public office of the Darkwind Gazette!

Submittal of articles in the mailbox to the left of the counter. Please review the guidelines for submittal, and be aware that freelance writing cannot be rewarded through economical compensation, thanks to the complicated nature of... [The rest of the text of that paragraph is curiously worn away]

Complains are addressed out back, behind the office, at the Desk of Criticism and Objections. Look for the hired mercenary with the massive assault rifle.

[Added below in bright, bold letters:]

Submission of votes for the Dream Event Vote, please step into the booth directly opposite of the counter.

[After finally tearing your eyes away from the brilliant display of journalistic professionalism and unbiased working ethics, you turn to the wall opposite the counter, and find a makeshift voting booth constructed from bent and twisted car parts, flat tires, and curiously, the wide cloth tapestry that disappeared from the back room at Jake's last month, when the place hosted the all-night drinking binge of the Clarinbridge Crushers, the Road Ronins, Dead Celebrity and the Edgerunners.]

[Inside the booth, a large sign reads:]

The Dream Event Vote will be conducted in two phases. The first is the selection phase, in which you, with a little organizational help from the Gazette, will narrow down the alternatives for the Dream Event. This phase will last for a month, until the beginning of June 2043.

The second phase will be the actual voting phase, in which you'll have to return to the office to vote for the options we have put together from your requests. This phase will last for the duration of June.

And finally, as the grass in the wastelands burns from the heat of the unforgiving sun and marauders wait in the shade to make the night just as deadly as the day, the two final candidates will face each in:

The Darkwind Gazette First Bi-Annual Dream Event Vote!

Phase 1 is closed for data gathering and processing. The second phase of the Dream Event Vote will open shortly

[As you finally leave the Gazette office, more than a little perplexed and one vote richer, you accidentally bump into the door frame, and watch in surprise as a small piece of wood comes loose from the wall and falls to the floor. And as you hear the hired mercenary at the Desk of Complaints and Objections unsecure his rifle, and the Gazette staff reach for their litigation suits, you thank the wasted gods of the wastelands that you've never had a reason to visit the office of the Darkwind Gazette before, and that it will be a month till you have a reason to do so again...]

OK, I pinned it.

To avoid any confusion: remember that a month in Evan is a week in 'real world time': so when Ayjona refers to May 2043 he means this week, and when he refers to June 2043 he means next week.

I'd like to make the point that certain scenarios would be quite awkward for me to put together... yours for example darth would involve a multiple-faction combat that doesn't yet exist in the AI behaviours.

Ah, sorry for putting you in a pinch, Sam ;)

In order to avoid confusion and the inevitable wild flights of creativity that this event must give rise to:

Only suggest events that are actually possible with the current game engine, without the necessity of additional coding or arranging by Sam.

So, be wildly creative when it comes to weapon loadouts, arenas and car types. But rein in your mind and let that creativity rest (for now) when it comes to all the impossible stuff.

Follow this guideline: Only actually suggest events that could be done either through a custom player event, or a wilderness encounter between two player gangs.

For the duration of the voting, that is your limitation. When the actual event occurs, who knows what strange stuff might occur ;)

"Advanced Race Labs vs. Advanced Research Labs."

You shouldve seen the semi pro combat yesterday then. I managed to take out sam and alo before resigning ;).

My dream event would be a 4 Lap Race around Northern Speedway:

Alo, me and Speeddialer. Alo and me in 3.2l V8 hotrods, and speed in the cougar, for pink slips :D. Though I somehow doubt speed would agree.

Since a rod with a v8 is unbeatable on that track, you bet I wouldn't agree to it! But I could probably ram you guys like at JY2 and take ya.  :p


On a side note, would it be possible to include the new gates system you put into the combat arenas Sam? For example, could the event be a relay race on highway to hell or something? Having to go thru gate 1, then gate 2 500m away, then back again?  Or use em in an arena like a croquet set?

Yes, that would be pretty easy to do. Which reminds me, we still need to implement wilderness rallies...

though I know this is an event for big gangs etc, I'd like to second the thought that we could have some wilderness rallies (perhaps with encounters too? - gangs just swinging in and giving everyone tznt....) or the destruction derby event that Darthspanky suggested...

something like the zombie thing where all comers can have a go...?

Why big gangs?

The idea is to suggest who and how you would like to see race of fight.

For example:
Fish Head vs Xander, combat arena, Hot Rod with spikes, side Flame Thrower and rear mounted MG

One last call: in 15 hours, the suggestion phase will be closed, and the selection phase will begin. Last call for suggestions, before that poll hits the thread like a boulder with several legendary and extremely skilled players on top.
