Yup, Shadowweb just asked me to host some Mektoub mount races. This shall be a trial event, so we can pick up on any changes and rules we should add for future simular events.

Details:

8pm GMT (9CET) Sunday 16th January
Starts in Yrkanis (stables) - matis lands
Required - a mount and some grub for it

There will not only be a race element to the event (over a relativly safe area for a mektoub rider) but also a puzzle element, tho I shall not reveil more on either the race layout or the puzzle until the time.

I know this race requires you to be fairly well off to have a mektoub and u need to have it based in matis, but there is no rules against watching and cheering people on, and hopefully we'll try to do future races in the other lands at a later date.

The CSR team will be helping me with this event and there may be a prize or prizes for winning :)

I hope to see you all there! (on ya mounts :))

Funny. There I was riding about in my fresh-from-the-stable mek mount and I was thinking "Bet they're gonna do a race event with these things" :rolleyes::D

My racer's based in Fyros lands, but I might take a looksee.

Just a thought, but wouldn't somewhere that is a little less graphic heavy than Matis be better? With all the people, Matis' lagtastic greenery, and the additional graphics of the mounts, its gonna be lag city. Not a good element for a race.

Just a thought.

Actually I find Matis the least laggy personally, besides if we can get a basic structure to this trial event we may hold races over the other lands at some point too :)

We had a good turnout, 13 entrants and a whole host of onlookers :) (not bad considering the price of meks) :)

Winners:

1st: Zcorpion Mount: EvoX - won 200k dappers
2nd: Kiyara Mount: dasher
3rd: Theron Mount: Kar

For all those curious about the puzzle element, there were 5 checkpoints you had to visit around majestic garden in any order so long as u went to all, and the CSR hiding there would give you a clue to the final password you had to give me in yrkanis to win.

The clues were:

1) He was born in the Prime roots in 2482
2) He was of Royal Lineage
3) His father named a great monument to his name which exists to this day
4) His half brother murdered his father, and stole the throne, but he recaptured it
5) The monument can be found in Majestic Garden north of Avalae

And the Answer was Yrkanis :)
