Winnie the Pooh and You Too!

Postby Limerick » Sat Jan 18, 2014 8:39 am

~Welcome to Winnie-the-Pooh and You too~

Image

A mini-scavenger hunt!

Today, Winnie-the-Pooh is celebrating 123 years of that willy, nilly, silly old bear.

But he's lost all of his hunnypots on the ToO
Image

What can you do to help?

It's simple. Pooh has lost 10 of his hunnypots on the ToO. Use the clues below to find them.

IMPORTANT: Once you are done searching, please send a PM to both Limerick and God's Girl numbered one through ten with a link to each hunny pot you found. Once this PM is submitted, your answers are final (assuming we have read the post) as this makes for easier tracking.

(All pms have to be received before 11:59pm EST on January 24th.)

For every other (every second) hunnypot you find, we'll roll a dice to determine if you've been stung by a bee in your search.

But don't worry! If you've been stung, there is a way to make up for it! 3 of Pooh's friends are also hidden around the boards, and they'll each offer you healing for one bee sting, just send me the answer to the question they are pondering (in asterisks) when you find them with the rest of the hunnypots =]

Clues:

1) What do you do when you can't dance?
2) Edna Mode would be very active in this discussion.
3) Do you need something to do during the dog days?
4) Go here for some formulaic work (And no, the Borg you may see are not from Star Trek.)
5) To find the first (and top), you may have to delve deep.
6) "A hunnypot is worth 10,000 words... Or posts"
7) Some things are only achieved in prayer.
8) To find this pot which is driving Pooh crazy, you must dig deep into your drawer of sweets.
9) The Good Guys do win sometimes.
10) Make sure you brush off a layer of dust before you grab this hunny pot!

NOTE: All but one of the hunnypots is in the first post of the respective thread. The clues will lead you there.

There will be lots of fun prizes, including:

The first person to find all 10 pots. (regardless of bee stings)

People who find all 10 pots. (Again, this is regardless of the number of stings)

Person who finds the most pots. (bee stings included, this prize can be won in addition to the prizes above)

First newbie (joined within the last year) to find more than 8 pots.

Remember, you need to get the location of the pots to us by 11:59pm EST on January 24th.


ETA:

Hello all, so, we didn't quite get the turnout we expected.

Though we know several of you were working on the event and just never got answers submitted, and a couple just forgot it was coming.

And hey, perhaps a single day wasn't really enough. At any rate, we have decided to extend the event as a week long event. Those hunnypots are still out there waiting to be found!

Please let us know if you need more help with the hints, if you guys are having difficulty, that is what we are here for!

Mostly, just have fun, and get ready for the Blank Page event coming soon!

So, you need to have your pms into us at 11:59pm EST on January 24th. :)

Q & A (Keep an eye here for updates and changes)

Q: Are all hunnypots in the first post?
A: All but one of the hunnypots is in the first post of the respective thread. The clues will lead you there.

Q: The hunnypots/friends only found in the main board and ruins, right?
A: That is correct. And yes, number 8 is out there, and all others have been found, so they are out there too! Keep looking!

Do *all* the pots need to be found before someone can send a PM, or can they just send as many as they found?

They can send as many as they have found, yes. The idea though is that they not be submitted until you are done searching. This avoids the craziness of getting 10 PMs from each player. If the PM is still in your outbox, i.e, it hasn't been read, you are free to edit your post. If you put WTP Submission as the subject, we will keep your message unread for the most part.

ETA: As a point of clarification, all hunnypots with one notable exception are the first post in their respective threads. This has been updated in the main post.

Number 8 has had me stumped for the whole time. I actually found the majority of the pots but then I had to go and didn't get them submitted in time. Thanks for the extra days!

Thank you for extending this, I would have been so upset if I missed it! This is my favorite type of event! \:D/

But I don’t understand the point of the bees?

Bees like honey when you find the pot they want to sting you.

I get that, but what is the point in context of the contest? Do you lose if you don’t have enough friends to counter the stings? If so with 10 sting rolls and only 3 friends, it’s possible to find all the honey and yet lose.

Edit:

*rereads post*
Make that five rolls. Still more than three though.

Okay, yes, it is true that it is theoretically possible to get all 5 stings. However, let me clarify the mechanism.

We will be rolling a six sided die. If it is a six, you will get stung.

So, the chances of getting stung 5 times... Is rather like winning a lottery, about 1/50,000 (1/6^6, 1/46,656 for any math geeks among us :p)

There is a good chance with all ten that you may not be stung at all.

The purpose of the stings is to encourage you to hunt for Pooh's friends and to solve the trivia questions they are holding and add some variety to the contest.

You are free to play in whatever way you have fun, however :)

Good job! When I first started looking I kept on checking tomake sure you weren't on or hadn't logged on because I knew that you would find them all before me if you had.

I know, it was great. What happens if you get stung and you don't find any of Pooh's friends?

Still unclear. I assumed you were out of the contest, but on rereading the rules maybe not. It seems to have something to do with how this is scored.

Sorry for the confusion! If you get stung with none of Pooh's friends to help you, that hunny pot does not count towards your count. Some of the awards as mentioned will disregard stings. The first to find all ten for instance. To simplify though, you really want to do what you can to find all ten hunnypots and all three friends :)
