Queen of the Black Coast by Robert E. Howard
The Great Game
Season One: January 18th through April 1st
Welcome to the Great Game exile. Crom has seen your worth from high atop his mountain and has seen fit to test your will and strength in the land of exiles. Pulled from your worthless existence, your memories wiped you are left cold, destitute, and hungry in the wasteland.
Crom seeks a champion to lessen the grip of his eternal boredom. It is now up to you to slay, destroy, and pillage for the amusement of Crom. On the server, you will be allowed to team up with one other person. Choose your teammate wisely!
Harvest rates are triple.
Experience gain from all sources is triple (except crafting).
Player vs. Player is always active.
Building damage is always active.
No foundation spamming or super gigantic megabases intentionally designed to crash the server. These will be demolished immediately and without warning.
No blocking vital resources or quest locations, these will be dismantled without warning.
At the end of the season, Crom will determine a champion of first, second, and third place. Crom will watch the realm with a keen eye and be on the lookout for cowardice.
Battle, base score, raiding, death and destruction all pleases Crom! Be a coward at your own peril for Crom cares not for the weak. A great score will be kept for all players and will determine who the winners will be. Keep your trophies so Crom can see your valiant conquests!
Crom has personally entered the realm. If you defeat him in battle or raid his base this will greatly add to your score as long as you do it honorably.
The Grand Tally
Here are a few ways to get points. Crom will keep a grand Tally on slabs of rocks on his mountain for your character. The character with the most points at the end of the season wins. The only repeatable points are the Daily Log In, raiding, defending, and pvp. Each other requires a screenshot or video to Cryptic Escape so there is proof of your adventure. Also serves as a trophy to show off just how alpha you are.
Daily Log In – 1 pt.
Raiding while Opponent is online 1 pt.
Defending against a raid (fail or successful) 1 pt.
Killing your opponent once per day and must not be allied with your clan. – 2 pt. You may slay other opponents that day for multiple points. However; you just can’t farm the same opponent over and over that day. Also, the opponent must not be allied with you. (screenshot to confirm the kill and their player level. Exploiting this will result in your destruction. )
- Example 1: Bob slays Jerry for 2 points. Jerry comes back for more and Bob slays him again. No point.
- Example 2: After Bob slays Jerry he goes on to slay Jerry’s partner Imyoboi79. 2 points for a total of 4 that day.
Being killed by your opponent once per day – 1 pt. You may be slain by multiple opponents that day just not the same opponent over and over. Being slain by each opponent will still grant you a point. Also, the opponent must not be allied with you. (screenshot to confirm being fail and the player levels. Exploiting this will result in your destruction. )
- Example 1: Bob slays Jerry. Jerry receives 1 point for participating. Bob slays Jerry again and tea bags him for being a noob. No point.
- Example 2: Jerry is later wrecked by StalkerAssin619. Jerry is awarded 1 point for a total of 2 points that day.
Reaching Level 60 – 1 pt.

Cowardly acts reduce your worth in Crom’s eyes. Each act will diminish your great score thus directly influencing your odds of winning the Great Game.
Raiding while your opponent is offline. (-3 pts.)
Rebuilding while you are being raided. You may repair, but laying down building pieces while you are being raided is allowed, but cowardly. (-2 pts.)
Attacking someone of the lower level unless they attack you first. However, being the higher level you will not receive any points but you won’t lose any points either (-1 pt.)
Stealing from open windows, fish traps, and open crafting stations show Crom that you would rather use other’s hard labor than work for glory yourself. (-1 pt.)
Vastly outnumbering your opponent with alliances. (-3 pt.)
Exploiting and griefing will result in your total destruction. Do not tempt Crom.
