Wanted to throw this out there and see what everyone thinks.
This idea draws inspiration on how much fun it is to be an Orge rushing around killing everything in sight and still feeling like you are serving a purpose.
Imagine the chaos if half or more the players online were doing that.
(Yes I know we do that anyway, but focus is usually not solely on speed)

So the concept is simple it is a MUD wide killing race that any player can join in once they have the event item. The goal is to kill as much stuff as possible as fast as possible, duh
Then sacrifice the corpse to some as yet undecided cause.

The event item would be something like the pentacled silver ingot.
You can use it to <sacrifice corpse> or <sac> for short.
It will work on custom corpses, beheaded, pulped etc
But unfortunately can't work on things that leave no corpse?
Will leave behind left overs same as an ingot would.

The item will track
* Each players total sacrifices
* Sub totals for the players different races sac'ed
* Each players CPH Corpses Per Hour rate
(of active playtime, no count link dead)

There will be a visible leader board at the event starting place / npc.
Event will run until total sac's for all players reachs 1 million!
Which I reckon if a lot of ppl join in will be less than 2 weeks lol.

Rewards could be for overall totals and highest CPHs.
Could be divied by player size.
Most kills for different races.

Don't know what cool stuff could be rewards etc
Just thinking it would be a fun event.
If nothing else it would be fun to see how other guilds can stack up versus the well practiced ogres.

And there would be none of that "The Darklings don't want Kitten Skulls" nonsense, anything goes lol. Once long ago I spent quite a lot of plats killing messenger pigeons cus I wanted to be a lethal grunt. If people want to spend plats let them. hehehe

That sounds like a neat idea for the super grinders. I would add one caveat to it that may or may not be popular... in order to be involved in the event, you would have to have a newbie with you (someone of smaller size than adventurer or something). There are already expressed issues with "newbie areas being laid to waste by ogres", so if the entire population was doing it.. those poor poor newbies would have no flies left to swat! The idea has merit and is akin to the skull finding event we had a few years ago

Hmmmm could maybe have a bonus for teaming.
Like all players in the team that attacked the mob could get a credit for for the sacrifice.

Eg Tarax +22 ppl attacks the watching orc, massacres it.
Sacrifice!
*lag*
23 credits, one for everyone. Boom

Could have team captains, causes etc.
Ppl trying to recruit u to their team.

Would have to up the goal a lot past 1 million then probably lol.

For the grunt titles, yes they did, any kill counted. Do grunts still exist? Heh
Oh yeah that's right they set up in Emerald

Might have to temporarily increase monster respawn rates..
Or maybe not, but that would help newbies to have more "flies to swat"

How would it work with player killing?
Bonus points? Half points? Lose points?

Faster respawns could be a reward as milestones are passed.
