Here's how i see it. 
I finalize all the rules and create a thread named let's say Ribble Hunting. 
There will be a separate message from me asking for protection. Those who thumbs it up will be my bodyguards. I'll pick first 15 or 20 players and will change a bodyguard every battle. Since this idea came from forum, forumers should have a privilege to protect me :). The battles will be started by countdown in special discord channel. This is where assassins will wait for me. 

 This is a great idea, Let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

As the head of security, you ought to pull a shift as a bodyguard.


 

If it burns when I pee, does that mean I wouldn't be a good fireman?

Well, I supposed that's it for me.  It's been a fun ride and I truly appreciate all the tanking advice I've been given.  I'll be taking my Dr. Seuss books and Mr. Potato head and moving on to other pastures.  I have not tried the discord, but I think I'll give that a go next.  I wish everyone here the best and perhaps I'll see you on the battlefield.  o7

That one works pretty well with changing out the bodyguard.

These days, the forum is a shell of its former self. We reminisce about the GOATs of the forums, Ratbat and Sly. One of the great things about these two, besides being great on the forums, was being great off the forums. By this, I’m referring to the events where they’d stream and you would win gold if you killed them. It was great fun and a lot of people got involved. 
 

Why not now? Why not Ribble or someone else at WG do a similar event. They stream themselves, and whoever kills them gets 1,000 gold (pretty sure this was the prize with Sly and Ratbat). Whether it be for the forums only (hopefully) or for the discord server. NA only or one server a week. Could be anywhere from an hour to however longer. I think it’d be really fun for all and would improve the connection between the forumers, other players, and the devs/mods/WG.

GREAT idea ! Only one problem: WG could care less about improving connections....

Hard to tell but that cesspool of a discord channel was the last nail in the coffin.  
 

Discord was probably necessary to move things forward but lord I hate that format. Hard to have a conversation

The main problems here are ping issues and time difference. This is what prevents us from streaming such things. 
But to be honest i don't see any problem in me experiencing 200 ms ping and trying to survive in battles with you guys. It might be fun i guess.
Just give me some time to think about details and we'll resume this thread. 

Good on you.

Nice idea. If i survive, my bodyguard should get paid. If not, the assassin takes the gold. 

Perfect

Great choice too

I wanted to do it on Saturday to be honest. But NY event took too much time and i couldn't set all the rules. Also we need to announce the whole thing properly. This is why i'd better get prepared properly and do everything right. Even if it requires one more week or two. 

Thank you for investing in the forum

Yeah, everything's awesomer when Ribble is active on the foums.

 

If it burns when I pee, does that mean I wouldn't be a good fireman?
