It's event time! This is the sign-ups and plotting post for the marathon I mentioned in this plurk.
Basically, the good city of Birchpointe is putting on a marathon across the city to raise charitable funds. Every entrant pays a fee and receives a number, and any volunteers or watchers are encouraged to donate to the charities involved. From there, it's just going from Point A to Point B, and seeing where you come in!
Placement's going to use an RNG system. Every character entered will be randomly rolled and throughout the OOC days of the event, placements will be listed in a top-level. From there you're free to comment and describe how your character got to where they are, whether they dropped from last time or have surged up in the pack. The first place winner will receive a prize from the city. But just because there's a race aspect doesn't mean you have to worry about that! The thing is all in good fun, of course, and there's plenty of walkers at any marathon.
I'm also gonna note that, of course, there's going to be WAY more people in the marathon than just our characters. It's a city event after all~ So feel free to assume any NPC interaction that you want as well, including water handlers, other racers, and the like.
-ICly, the marathon will take place on June 19th.
-OOCly the event will run from June 19-23. Tagging, as usual, will go on into infinity/as long as it needs to, but the placements will be posted PER DAY and then can be tagged out at your leisure from there.
-Sign-ups for runners will remain open until JUNE 18th. This will let me get the first placements ready. Sign-ups for volunteers will remain open until the event, since there's no number aspect there.
-You do NOT have to be a Runner or a Volunteer to take part, either! There's going to be plenty of opportunity for top-leveling for people just watching the race and cheering on their friends.

There will also be NO evil involvement in this event. That means nothing from the Steel Thorn, Order of Albion, or even Chaotic interruptions. It's being guarded much like the winter village is, so anyone in it can have a good time. Of course, mischief is perfectly okay >.> X3
Feel free to plot things out anywhere on this post, under your own top-levels or otherwise! And I think that's about it! If you have any questions feel free to ask them below and otherwise, plot away!
