    Ever Been To Mardi Gras? Here is your chance to not only participate in The Universe's first ever Mardi Gras Parade, but to be crowned KING of the 2020 Entropia Mardi Gras!!!


    Only 100 tickets will be available to get your chance to lead the parade in 2020, past the population centers, stables, and shops of the Entropia Universe, throwing free stuff to spectators.

    Fun for both participants and spectators, Mardi Gras is a great time to have fun as a group and spur growth in our community.

    Floats can consist of groups of people representing Stables, Warp Providers, Shopping Centers, Societies, even a Pirate float is welcome since New Orleans, the Center of the Mardi Gras universe, was founded by pirates.

    So bring you masks, wear your costumes, fuel up your vehicles and take the party to the streets! Mardi Gras colors are Purple, Green and Yellow, or Nusul, Carabok, and Hornet

    Mardi Gras is coming!

    The Crewe Of Lootius Ball was NOT the Parade!
    It was a fundraiser for throws FOR the parade.
    The Ball was held at Aakas Island (Arkadia, 19100, 9083)

    How to get a free throw at the parade?
    If you do not say "Hey I got a....(item link)" or similar
    in #mardigras, #rookie, #arkadia,#rocktropia, or #calypso chat(pick one)
    then the trade window will be closed
    and we can move on....
    This is being done to insure the Court does it's job! KEEP THEM HONEST

    Please respond with your comments, questions, suggested ticket prices and sponsorship offers to this event.

    The Top Promoter will receive a free advance ticket. Details in Sponsors

    Notes:

    Caly Mirror

    Common Questions:


    Who is the Court?
    The Court will get their throws at their TP, Shop or Stable from the King, and pass theirs out in their portion of the route, and at the Crowning event at the end of the Parade.

    How do I get tickets?
    Once the event is registered, a portion will be available from the Arkadian event queue. A set number of tickets will be purchased in advance of the event, and will be reserved for sponsors.

    Do I need to buy a ticket to participate?
    As a spectator, without participation, the throws will suck. The more people, the more sponsors, the more tickets sold, the better this can be. So if you want good free stuff, it is in your own best interest to help promote the event. One does not need to buy tickets to receive throws. One DOES need to buy a ticket to become 2020 King, pass out throws, win event prizes or attend the after parade party.

    How can one "Throw" items now we are not able to drop stuff on the ground?
    All Items will be given to the King. Who could run off with them. And piss everyone off. But some kings are good, some are cool. The King will pass key items out through private trade before, during and after the parade. At his discretion, randomly or to friends. We can never tell.

    *UNLESS* "I got a ............." is the common response to receiving a throw! EXAMPLE:The Mayor of Quarry gives you a B101 amp, and while the trade window is still open, you yell "I GOT A B101 Amp!!!" and then he checks the green check, and you get it. Otherwise, YOU DONT.

    At key points on the parade route, he will distribute an items package to the governor of that portion of parade. Not only will the King pass out items throughout the entire route but the governor of that area will as well. This will proceed until the end of the event.

    So it will be possible for a player to receive several items from several members of royalty throughout the parade.

    All leftover throws will be given out at the final destination.

    Why Arkadia? Why not Caly or RT?
    Glad you asked. I am from Arkadia. It is my home. I was borned here. I want to do as much as possible to improve it. I expect there are those on RT and Caly that feel the same. I know what I'm doing, and how to do it, and am laying out a framework for others to follow. I hope this will prepare the way for events on both RT and Calypso. In 2020, the first ball can be held for the Crewe Of NRF. The second on Calypso for the Crewe of HoF. And then a week before Mardi Gras, the Crewe of Lootius.

    There can be three parades. NRF, on RT. HoF on Caly. And Lootius on Ark. This event builds and eventually can include every planet. Once that happens, all planets can have part in each parade on each planet. It will make more sense in time. Lets just see how the actual parade on Ark goes.

    Court
    The Court is responsible For their section of the Parade Route
    Do you have the TP's?

    Acting as 2019 King:Jack Hipster Kimble

    Elected Mayors:
    Demi Deminish Nishap: Countess of Celest Harbor North
    Kain Dewey Fall: Jari of Outpost
    nick nikita3003 OP: Marquee of The Quarry

    Selected Governors:
    Gopala: Count of Aakas Island
    Felix Wizard: Baron of Celeste Harbor
    lastman last77 kenoa: Duke of Celeste Harbor Island
    Kasey DIE Jones:Tamaraq of Celeste Harbor South

    Specific Titles Can be Changed to suit players fancy, route is set to cover (at least) Quarry, Outpost, Celeste Harbor, Celeste Harbor North and Celeste Island

    When handing out throws in trade, do not complete the transaction until the spectator states what they are getting in one of these chats: #arkadia, #rocktropia, #calypso, #mardigras

    I understand that the sheer volume of throws to give out may be too much for one person to handle during your portion of the parade. If that is the case, please appoint people to help. I can reserve a ticket to the event at the end of the route for you to give to your best helper. 90% of the throws you are given should be handed out by Parades end, the rest at the Parade Ball.

    I am suggesting giving each member 100 throws. 70 for their portion. 10 for the rest of the route. 10 for the bar. And 10 for the Crowning. Reserve the best throws for the Crowning.

    You will be able to tell who to give throws too easily. The parade moves. Anyone moving is technically part of the parade. Anyone who is standing still is officially a spectator. So throws will go to those not in the parade, on either side, standing still(or dancing, dancing is allowed). We don't want to encourage people running after people for throws. If they do, they become part of the parade, are no longer spectators, and do not qualify for throws.

    Ball Results:
    Demi Deminish Nishap
    Kain Dewey Fall
    Jack Hipster Kimble-exempt

    I am going to hold events related to a Universe wide Mardi Gras, and wonder what MA could do to help with such an extravaganza. Such an event would spur gameplay, spending and commerce throughout the realms. At the very least, I would hope the MA team could create a Crown for the King of Entropia, but other items such as masks and beads would make the event special.

    Thank you for your careful consideration.

    Event Items(that I would love MA to consider making for this event):
    Crown(for King)
    Rods(for Court)
    King Cakes
    Masks

    Bodystocking(M)
    Halo(F/M)​

    Special Throws:
    Coconuts
    Beads
    G-strings
    Pasties

    These are some grand plans! Will require some serious event planning to make it work. I wish you all the best, Hipster.

    Would like to offer the services of Aakas Island for hosting the ball event. We recently had an accidental party over at the Island (I messed up by creating an event with Most Votes instead of HSL). As the details get hammered out, we can also work out some sponsorships.

    While I don't have sponsorship to offer I do wish you the best of luck with this project, It is a wonderful idea that takes us back to a style of events in Entropia that used to be far more common.

    Something as simple as 20 b101's (@ under a ped each) would get your name on the list, a ticket to vote, and a chance to be royalty, at this point.

    Just have people respond to this post with your Full Av name when they respond to the following ads:

    [#mardigras] -FREE WARP FOR ALL! Throw Me Something Mister! http://arkadiaforum.com/threads/crewe-of-lootius-ball-entropia-mardi-gras-2019.14927/

    Societies:Free Ticket to One member YOU PICK as a Represenative! [#mardigras]

    I create a sticky and copy and paste from it. You will need links for the [#mardigras] chat and the items, contact me in game.

    5 minutes is the standard delay between ads, but that is relative. I enlarge my trade chat to go top to bottom, and post an ad every time the last ad disappears off the top. If you post too often, you will be ignored. You do not have to spam ads, though. Just telling friends and soc mates may get you the free ticket.

    Refer anyone with a question to the forum since their post, if it includes your name, will credit you for a chance to win the free ticket.

    Hi Hipster,

    Thank you for your support case.

    We apologize for the inconvenience but we do not really assist in player created events as this would create a favoritism scenario so we are very limited in what we can do in that aspect.

    To create a crown or any additional items would require development time from art and other teams, as we are working on big projects at this time we would not be able to spare such time to create additional items for a player ran event.

    We do however wish you the out most of luck with your Event and we hope it reaches the audience you are seeking, take care.

    Kind regards,
    Ulf | Entropia Universe Support
