Rules of the 2006 Land Grab
There will be several phases during the Land Grab 2006 event, in each phase a certain number of land areas will be up for grabs. After an undetermined time period after the first phase, the second phase starts, and so on. The total number of phases will not be disclosed, nor will the number of land areas per phase, to keep suspense and excitement up.
A land area can be claimed by any functioning, non-pending, society. (Note that it takes seven days go get a society into a qualified state).
Any person within a society can claim a piece of land in the name of the whole society. The land is claimed by finding a “land marker” for a certain land area. Click on the land marker and follow the instructions presented.
The land has to be successfully defended for four consecutive hours before the ownership of the land is turned over to the society.
After a six month period ownership is transferred back to Marcus Callender, the MindArk estate broker.
Defence of the land is achieved in the following manner: At least one member of the society will have to be alive and present within a radius of 30 meters from the land marker at all times from when the land is claimed until the full four hours has elapsed. If all Society members have exited the radius, the land marker will emit a warning signal (sound and light) for a period of 60 seconds. This is a grace period given, during which any living society member has to get inside the radius or the claim for the land will be lost and thus enabling another society, or the same society for that matter, to restart the land claiming process.
A single society may only claim one land area at a time. A single society may own an unlimited number of land areas.
Certain Revival Terminals will be disabled during the Land Grab.
