About the Event
Background of the Event
As capsuleers, we are immortals that struggle for power and worth. Consequently, those who struggle for power and worth ultimately come into conflict with one another, and sometimes it turns violent.
Thus, a contest was born and named "Theomachy" after the Greek term for battle of the gods. The purpose of which: To decide whom amongst our god-like kind reigns supreme.
For 4 hours, hundreds of New Eden's greatest immortals are transported to an arena system - free of control from the inner empires - to test their endurance, ingenuity and battle prowess. Against an unforgiving environment and companion immortals:
For there can be only one victor...
The objective of this event is to be the last capsuleer alive in the arena system.
Contestants are dropped into a seeded system in nothing but a capsule. You can use anything you find within the arena to further that goal; be it that cruise missile fit Armageddon you found, or a can filled with slave implants and faction mods to fit up that osprey you just scavenged and barely got away with. Prove worthy, and perhaps the "All Knowing Overseers" will drop you some more much needed equipment or perks.
Participants are also not restricted on who they can align themselves with, or whom they can kill. All that matters is that you are the last one standing, can you really trust your friends anymore?
May the gods be ever in your favor
Sounds cool! When is it?

Emergent Event Rules
These rules cover how the scripted events are going to be done.
Scripted events will be done by the Emergent Team to add some more spice to the event. They can range from random patrols of pirate ships to a hauler roaming around with loot to grab.
Events will be announced in a specific channel every player should join if they wish to see the scripted event announcements
More than one event can be going on at the same time, so you will have to choose wisely.
Events will have rewards in some fashion, and will be worth the risk. No Hunters will interfere with a scripted event, and if they happen to be on beacon, they will not interfere.
These rules govern how things will go should a disconnection occur for controllable or uncontrollable reasons
In the event of thunderdome rebooting or going down briefly, you will have 5 minutes to log back in, after that 5 minutes we will take a snapshot of local and any additions will be removed from the event. Should you disconnect during the event, you have the time it takes our referee prober to find you in space to log back in or you will be podded.
