The Great Boolpropian Olympics (Team Events!)

Postby Thaitanic » December 30th, 2015, 12:45 pm

Welcome one and all, to the The Great Boolpropian Olympics!

Before 2000 there was a time called the "Empty Millenia". In this time, the world was empty, and no-one knew why - but then a mighty game franchise was founded. The Sims. With The Sims, came to the world plumbobs, and smustle, llamas and motherlode and 'woohoo'. Circa 2005, a home for that franchise was founded - the mighty Forum of Boolprop has risen, fallen and risen once more. But now, eleven years after its creation, there is a call to arms. Five great houses have risen underneath the cloudy springtime of 2016 and settled themselves in the newly refurbished capital of Boolprop.net, and they are taking comrades-in-arms - what house will choose you? Where will your alignments lie? And which house, ultimately, will triumph victorious?




It's like Game of Thrones, but instead of thrones there's floor-plates.

Massive thanks to Keika for her suggestion in our suggestions forum!

Yep! You heard it here first, folks. We're starting up an epic, site-wide team event. The Great Boolpropian Olympics will be, for the foreseeable future, an ongoing event. Everyone who joins on the sign-up thread here will be invited to one of our five Great Houses - House Llama, House Motherlode, House Plumbob, House Smustle and House Woohoo. Upon joining one of the five great houses, comrades-in-arms (*cough*members*cough*) can compete in events and competitions to win points for their house, and will be able to access special House Member only sub-forums where they can discuss their plans for victory strategy :shifty: . But wait, there's more! Points will also be awarded for reaching for things like reaching certain post counts, and completing and starting published sims challenges. (How exciting!) See the Scorecard below for more information on that. :sly:

But what do we get for earning the most points?, you ask - well that's simple. Every 3 months, we'll do a final tally of the points won for each house; and the Great House with the most points becomes the Greatest House for the next three months. Each House member will be given a rank image that represents their house (similar to the namebars underneath the name of Boolprop Staff), and the winning house every month will get their rank image bordered to denote their house as one of great prestige. If a House should achieve anything great, I wouldn't be surprised if there were medals on the line as well...

Of course, the points are reset every three months, so it's a fresh start for every house and every Great House has the chance to storm ahead to become the Greatest - which of course every house is capable of doing.

House Llama: I'm scared of this house, aren't you? It's got llamas with boxing gloves as it's symbol. Boxing gloves!

Image
House Motherlode: Unlike the name implies, I'm sure none of these house-members have ever cheated once.

Image
House Plumbob: Fans of late-night stargazing may find this reference to plumbobs a bit heavy-handed. I say, it's better than "House Pollination Technician".

Image
House Smustle: Ah yes, the Smustle. The absolute bane of any free will player's existence. But at least they make fun faces, whether they measure up to potty training faces or not, I do not know.

Image
House Woohoo: Photobooths, double beds, showers, elevators, cars and bushes not included with house membership.

A reminder that if you want to partake in our House event, you need to sign up in this thread and show your interest. If we get enough interest this will definitely be an event that will be great fun and a great thing to partake in. You will also be invited to a house, as opposed to choosing one - but there's something of an element of pleasant surprise in that, no? ;) Invites will be sent out a little bit after you post - feel free to list if you want to be a part of any house specifically or if you'd rather not be in a certain house and we'll be sure to account for that :D

Scorecard

So, what CAN you win points for? And how are they awarded?
Well! In addition to our five Great Houses, we have an Overseer house made of impartial moderators (House Boolprop, of course!) who will keep track of points and release the winners of the Olympics every three months. You will win 30 points every time you achieve one of the things on the list below, with occasional exceptions going on a case-by-case basis. Each Great House will get a Sub-Forum that only other House members can see, and in each of these Sub-Forums will be a thread for members to announce point-winning achievements. At the end of the three months, Overseers will check these threads, sum up the totals and check against their own figures, and release the winners.

You can win points if you...
  • Take part in forum events - these are defined as Boolprop Chef, Let's Build It, and most threads in the Event board unless marked otherwise.
  • Win forum events (if they have defined winners). For this, you win 20 points.
  • Reach certain post count milestones (100, 500, 750, 1000, 1500, 2000, and onwards from here in increments of 500).
  • Complete a published challenge of any type.
  • Reach Generation 5 in a documented legacy.
  • Win a medal.
  • Are told you've won points for any other reasons that the Overseers can come up with :shiftyeyes:
  • In addition to earning points for these things you already do around the forum, we will occasionally be hosting events specifically for the Olympics, where teams can compete directly against each other. Keep a look out for those.

It should be noted that you only win points for things like reaching Generation 5, and post count milestones if you do so within the three month periods. Previously reaching 100, or winning a medal will not get you these points. (Sorry Rosanna's team, no crazy amounts of medal points for you :sly: ).
