So it's been far too long since the last interactive race. February seems to be a fairly calm month for me with a nice school break so I figured I should run one while I have the time!

New to Racing or just want to refresh yourself on the rules and how it works?
Check out this thread:
Want to see the previous interactive race?
Check out this thread:
Don't own a Samanayr but still want to participate?
Check out this post:


Wind Chill

This is a Flying course on a snowy windy plain. This is also an interactive race!

There are 10 spots open for this race.


This race will run much slower than usual as I am hoping for your participation. Each round will allow an hour for the participants to respond (unless everyone responds before the hour is up)

So what do you have to do? Each round, you can choose a movement type for your Samanayr:
- Easy (slow movement of either 1,2,3 but with a +5 bonus to any obstacles your Samanayr comes across during this round, +1 endurance for future obstacles)
- Normal (default movement, movement from 1-6 with no bonuses or disadvantages)
- Hard(fast movement of either 4,5,6 but with -5 bonus to any obstacles your Samanayr comes across during this round, small chance of tripping/no movement)

So how do you choose how to race? It’s easy, just post your movement type in bold. You can get as “in-character” as you like, here are some example responses:
"easy"
"Race of the Racing Racer takes it easy this round"
"Race looked around at the other Samanayrs running their fastest and decided she would take it easy, slow and steady wins the race. Besides, this way she could watch and learn from their mistakes"

If you have to leave during the race, don’t despair. Your Samanayr can still race, it will just default to the normal movement role, working exactly like a normal race would. You can jump back in in at any point.
However, if you can, please let me know you won’t be around for a bit so we can continue the race without waiting for your response.

- Depending on your movement type, you can receive either a +5, -5, or 0 bonus for obstacles you come across on your turn.
- If you have endurance saved up from previous rounds of slow movement, each point will give you a +1 to get over an obstacle. If the endurance points are needed to get over the obstacle, they will be used up; otherwise, they are saved for the next obstacle.
- If stuck at an obstacle(i.e were unable to pass on the round before), you may write up a little response if you’d like. This is NOT required, but you may receive a few bonus points for getting past the obstacle that turn.



Racing applications will open on February 12 at 10:00am PST To apply for a race spot, send a PM to my account, silvermoondragon, either on the forum or PI(pm’s sent to Sushidragon may get missed or you miss getting the spot you want), with the subject as Wind Chill and the following form filled out:

Samanayr name:
Samanayr ID or image:
Do you think you will be able to attend the race?
Have you read the rules and have all applicable permissions?

The race will be run on Sunday, February 19, 3:00pm PST



First place

- First Place Ribbon
- One modiem of choice
- One random modiem

Second place

- Second Place Ribbon
- One modiem of choice

Ok, I've now posted our racers.

So far I have Toxick711, Bighorns, and CareBear89 listed as not able to be present. If this changes, let me know so we can wait up for you. Likewise, if anyone else can no longer make it, please let me know. And with that, see you on the 19th.

3:00pm PST
4:00pm MST
5:00pm CST

Hi everyone! Thanks for coming out to our first interactive race in awhile!

Our racers stand at the starting line ready to launch into the air and begin their race.


Please let me know if you would like to run easy, medium, or hard. We will wait approximately an hour for responses to move on to the next round unless all the expected answers are in.

Even though she's excited for her first race, Purr decides to start off easy.

Glide is going to take it easy to start.


Hope I'm not too late. Had to go to work with my mom today, and the race kind of slipped my mind. I'm here now though. XD

And off go our racers, heading off across the plain, wings flapping frantically.



@ElvenArcher - no worries, that's why I waited a bit for the first round.



Do you guys want to wait another hour for the next round or just go on when everyone here has submitted a response?

I'm fine either way.

Wanting to conserve her energy, Prize decides to slow to a more normal pace this time.

Still unsure, Parting continued to take it easy.

I would rather go on once we've all posted instead of waiting an hour.

Location: Everywhere. And Nowhere. But definitely not Somewhere.
Drifting aimlessly, Snowflake decides she can take it easy after such a good start.

*basically tumbling through the air*
Gah, missed the start, but I'm here now! ^-^;;

Glide decides to pick up the pace a bit and just go a normal pace.

Either way is fine with me.

I think since no one else has shown up this hour we can probably move on after the rest of us have posted.

I have to leave for an unplanned errand. Can I tell you what Glide will do for the next couple of rounds or does it have to be the default?
