Legend has it that Founder's Isle was once home to a brilliant yet tortured scientific mind. Although it was feared that all traces of his work were lost, we're excited to announce that local scavengers have uncovered what appears to be the remnants of a the great man's testing laboratory.
Detailed notebooks have been found at the site outlining a number of curious and bizarre experiments which were to be undertaken with very specific instructions, designed to push man to his very limits. Though the writing is erratic at best, we speculate that this was some attempt to engineer a super-race. To what end, we will never know.
It seems that 'test subjects' were to be enclosed in sealed rooms and their skill, wit and ingenuity pitted against the harshest of environments. Only the best and bravest would triumph, yet we imagine that great rewards would be bestowed upon the victors.
To learn more, we have decided to resurrect the experiment in order to better understand this puzzling yet fascinating work. Will you rise to the challenge?
== Rules ==
This will be a rolling event, played out over a number of weeks.
A team of 4 survivors will undertake a set of Challenge Rooms comprising a combination of physical, mental and skill tasks. Successful completion of a task will earn your team a 'Time Crystal' for each member.
Once all the tasks have been attempted, your team will enter the final timed challenge room - the amount of time dictated by the amount of Time Crystals collected. Success in this challenge room will determine your teams final score.
We will maintain a score-board, and the highest-scoring team will receive a grand prize once the event is concluded. All who take part will receive a smaller reward.
You will need to bring only 1 weapon of your choice - no clothes or containers are necessary, as instructions stipulate that all items must be decontaminated, and so these will be provided.
For best results, we recommend your team consists of a mixture of combat and craft-orientated players.
If you would like to enlist a team, please sign up below stating the names of your 4 team members. We will endeavor to schedule a time which best suits your members. We are hoping to run the first event on Sunday 16th at 8pm GMT.
If you would like to participate but don't have a team, you can also post below to recruit other members of the community. Teams do not need to be from the same tribe.

It is my pleasure to announce that Team Kiff beat the Xsyon Time Crystal Challenge, by getting a score above 100 in the Final Room. They won 12 time crystals, which gave them 120 seconds of time in the Final Challenge Room. Their final score was in fact 287! Well done to everyone who took part! Each member of the team won two recipes of their choice.
The team which gets the highest score over the course of the competition will also win a Scrappers Cart each, so dont forget to check back in later!
Thank you to everyone who took part! If you missed the event you should be able to catch up at twitch.tv/guideisda

There is still room for two more teams to take part on the 30th Dec and 6th Jan - so please post here if you would like to reserve a slot for your team. For taking part you can win one recipe of your choice per team member, for beating the challenge with a score of above 100 you can win 2 recipes of your choice per team member. The team with the highest score overall will win a Scrapper Cart per team member at the end of the competition.
That was a great event GuideIsda! Clearly you put a lot of work into this as it was a very fun challenge. Thanks again (even though my nerves were shot by the end) I hope to see more events like this in the future.
