What if I can’t arrive for a round?

If one member of team can’t arrive, they can be replaced for that round with any person from any guild.

However, the must always be at least one team member representing ZAP during the entire duration of the race.

The stand-in doesn’t get any reward from us by default. But they traditionally get the missing person’s reward from that particular round.

Each team is only allowed to substitute a racer two times. We will want to see your team participating at full strength for at least two rounds.

Details of the rounds

  1. Each round starts with Seeking Quest. You shall be given a picture clue, and with that picture you have to find a hidden host anywhere in the world.
  2. If you successfully find the hidden host you will be given a riddle to solve and perform whatever the riddle asks you for. That could be a jumping puzzle, mini dungeon or finding some special place, the actual task can vary.
  3. After successful fulfilling the task, you will be given a challenge, mostly something combat related.
  4. And finally the mysterious quest. Your very last quest can be absolutely anything.
  5. The first team to decipher all riddles, beat all challenges, overcomes all jumping puzzles and successfully arrives to the finish line wins a small reward and continues to the next round.

Crack this riddle from last round, would you be up for this challenge?

The last point of our race,

Is located in a very crowded place.

Arenas with professional killers sway in the air,

And into death’s gaze do stare.

 

If you are too slow you’re going to fly,

Many creatures will see you falling from the sky.

You are going to find no mercy there,

And angry beasts will your body tear.

 

But you can also become a Queen’s knight,

Only if you defeat the witch of endless night.

Luckily for you, another is your victim:

Her sister of Light is our decided dictum.

 

Her tome is full of various spells,

Some creating rather annoying shells

Your partner has a lot of work too,

The targets are not one, but two.

 

The better of you should rather,

Go kill this gelatinous mother.

The parts of its body it often loses,

It makes from them little oozes.

When can I join the next round?
