(  1)  Zistrosk     10/07/18     A host of challengers arrive...

News of previous Oktoberquests has spread far and wide, and a group of really
tough fighters have decided to test their mettle against our powerful heroes.
 
Find a fightmaster.  Issue a challenge.  Keep on defeating the fighters until
you've beaten them all.  Perhaps a bigger challenge awaits at the crossroads
of life?
 
See the next note for all the detaily details.

(  2)  Zistrosk     10/09/18     Oktoberquest challenger quest flow and rules

Basic quest flow:
1. Find an unassigned fightmaster and look at him for instructions
2. Issue a challenge
3. Defeat the challengers in solo IP1 combat, one at a time
4. On the sixth challenger of the day, bring your IP1 questor friends to help!
5. If enough sixth challengers are defeated, another challenge will open at the
   crossroads. Bring all the IP1 questors you can to try to defeat Seventh.
6. If you try to attack Sixth without killing at least one of your own mobs
   then you'll mess up the quest for the challenger of that Sixth. Plz Dont.
 
-Declare your one AV you'll quest on either by tell or mudmail to Zistrosk
-Be IP1 in the area while fighting any challenger
-Days are delineated by the calendar date in the time command, not by reboot
-Seventh resets at reboot, opens again with enough new Sixths defeated
-Solo: First challenger is worth 1 point, Second is worth 2, up to Fifth for 5
-Sixth is worth 6 to the assigned challenger, 1 each to the first five helpers
 --PLEASE ASK BEFORE JUMPING IN TO "HELP".  If they say it's ok, then attack.
-A KB on Seventh its worth 10 points.  Seventh randomly delays his own repop.
 
---PLEASE DO NOT ATTACK THE MOBS ON ANY CHARACTER OTHER THAN YOUR QUESTOR---
 
Scapezist's Note: This quest will run until November 6th at reboot.
(  3)  Zistrosk     10/20/18     Oktoberquest Day Of The Pumpkin (tm) 27OCT2018

All,
 
From 6am to Midnight on Saturday, 27 October 2018, the Oktoberquest Pumpkin
will be available for creeper crushing for all Oktoberquestors.  If you wanted
a chance at the pumpkin, and haven't had one, now is your chance!
 
On the 27th after reboot there will be a short pause between pumpkin visits,
but he will be around most of the time.
 
His point value per kb remains unchanged.
 
Good luck to all!

Zist amended the note with:

Some more clarifications:
-Once defeated, pumpkin may take as long as 20 minutes to show up again
-Whomever got the KB will be sent to dhsq, and can return in an hour or so
-The pumpkin will be handing out helper points, if the group is big enough
-There will be a cool down on pumpkin helper points, but it will be possible
 to accumulate several per hour.
 
Good luck to all!
--Zistrosk

Mechanics

Players are required to locate a fightmaster, whose random position is fixed at reboot. They can issue a challenge and he will produce a variety of opponents, up to 6 per day, in increasing difficulty. The 7th opponent spawns more randomly. To reach the 7th opponent the questor has to say ready to the Oktoberquest Roadie at the crossroads.

In the final few days of questing it was noted that although each 6th Challenge Jerry could only provide 5 helper points a player could purge their Jerry without killing it and that the subsequently summoned Jerry would provide an additional 5 points. This was confirmed by Zistrosk as "working as intended".

Minions

Roadie

Located at crossroads the roadie sends you to a special quest area to fight the 7th challenge mob.

This roadie stands ready to to send Oktoberquestors to meet Seventh, but only
after enough Sixths have been defeated!  Come by and say that you are ready,
and if Seventh has been unlocked since reboot, you'll be sent to meet him.
Who can attack Seventh?  As many IP1 declared questors that want to, all at
the same time.
You say 'ready'
Have fun in the pumpkin arena!
Playername suddenly pops like a pumpkin shaped balloon!

Fightmaster

(Fade) This fightmaster is here to oversee Oktoberquest fights here.
An Oktoberquest fightmaster is shrouded in flowing shadow and light.
The fightmaster is here to officiate Oktoberquest challenges for all declared
matches.  The first five challenges must be completed IP1 in the area, and
solo.  The sixth challenger may be attacked by any number of IP1 declared
questors that have already completed at least one solo match.  The roadie
at the cross roads may have a further challenge available.

Use say to issue a challenge.  Also use say to get your unofficial score.

If the player says challenge an increasingly difficult opponent will appear. Opponents 1-5 are required to be soloed. They will disappear if others enter the room.

Challenge 6

Jerry the gelatinous gelatin awards 6 points to the primary challenger and potentially awards 1 point to each helper up to a maximum of 5 helpers. This is the primary source of variance in the scoreboard. In the final days of the quest it was discovered that Jerry could be purged to provide a helper point to an unlimited number of people, 1 each, 5 at a time. This was verified by Zistrosk not to be a bug, but to be working as intended.

Challenge 7

The 7th challenge mob is the Oktoberquest Pumpkin. This is a classic quest mob style fight, except this mob is relatively weak but with tremendous hitpoints and/or healing that makes the fight quite lengthy. It also makes landing the kill blow quite a random feat. The kill blow is worth 10 points to the individual player who lands it. No other points are awarded on this stage.

The Day of the Pumpkin

On October 27, 2018 at 6 am EST an assortment of players met Zistrosk and a modified Pumpkin quest mob in the World Quest Area. 9 Pumpkin mobs were placed in the area set to respawn upon death.

The mob had been modified to stay still, otherwise multiple pumpkins might engage with groups simultaneously, which was undesirable for several reasons. Not the least of which is the spam of the quest mob fights; several crashes were observed, suspected to be from players stacking commands. The mob was also altered to make the kill blow very random by starting it's tank switching program only once it reached DYING. During this event the mob did not drop any items.

Players who were in the fight with the quest mob earned 1 helper point at intervals of approximately 15 minutes.

The quest ran for approximately 16.5 hours with many players making the entire duration. The quest was called after the 3rd mud crash of the day.

The official totals posted by Zistrosk were:
