Coneva has prepared a new activity for next Events Night, themed after this mining game of ours, which will put pickaxes to good use! As the title says, "thar be gold in dem hills!"... Quoting our showrunner:
Upon arrival players should stop at the bank to withdraw some "silver" which they can use to purchase their mining supplies at the store. At the designated time all teams [pairs of players or single adventurers] will go to the mining grounds and choose a mineshaft. A timed challenge will begin; the goal? GOLD! The idea is to dig up as much gold as you can. At the end of the timed challenge teams will produce their haul, and the team that mined the most gold wins a prize. The bonus is that everyone gets to keep all the fruits of their labor!
Things to note: you will only be supplied with basic and limited quantity supplies; better equipment may be secured as you mine. There will be enchantment books available in the forge, which can also be purchased. Players can do anything they want (except grief) as long as they do not port or nether out of Gravelton, and only start mining in the designated area to be part of the challenge.
To recap: bring nothing but your good spirits! You'll be provided with a starter kit, with the option to purchase more items to make your digging more efficient. The team or player that finds the most gold WINS! Plus, you keep your findings! Prizes will be announced and awarded at the event itself.
Please make your way to Central this Saturday, the 28th, at around 9pm Eastern time. The event will start as soon as people are ready and will last for two hours. Try to find a mining partner beforehand, and make your time count!
