It's fast, it's furious, it's f***in' good fun. Take twenty topplers, herd them into a team and punt your proposals to Maryport, PM or post on this forum are both acceptable. Be there or...don't be there, or summat. On last year's evidence nobody will enter until the middle of the month but please note two points:

1 - In response to the discussion on the last Deathrace thread we've gone with teams of twenty all round. The easy option is to double up your DDP team. The ambitious option is to lump in twenty of the lowest hangers, take advantage of the ludicrously lax obit-counting rules hereabouts before collecting copious pointage from the resulting carnage, or summat.

2 - Entries close at midnight on 30 December meaning I can get everything ready for action by daylight, or thereabouts, on 1 Jan. No second chances this time, deadline is deadline and the time recorded on this forum or PM decides etc etc. 12-01 31-12-13 is too late.

DEATHRACE 2014: THE RULES

1 – The object of the Deathrace is to be the first contestant to reach 2014 points.

2 – To enter the Deathrace a contestant must have
A: A valid and current DDP team or a Deathrace Twenty Topplers Team (DTT) team.
B: Status as a member of the Deathlist (i.e. be at least a Pointless Ranter and at most a Dedicated Cumbrian Corpse Hound, or Summat)
Or…..successfully argue a case to MPFC for entry without the above.

3 – Entries are open until midnight on 30 December. A team will be deemed to have entered when they post a full DDP team on the Deathrace thread on the Deathlist.

Or

A special ‘Deathrace Twenty Topplers’ (DTT) line-up concocted specifically for the Deathrace comprising 20 members conspicuous as ‘low hanging fruit’ of the variety beloved of dead poolers. Including one team member nominated as a joker and a suitable grimly funny team name for the DTT.

4 – Players score points every time a team member dies and accrues an obit (see point 10). The score for each death amounts to 1 point for every complete calendar day of 2014 remaining after the death of said team member. So, a death on January 1st scores 365 points, a death on January 2nd scores 364 points etc.

5 – Jokers score double the normal points in point 4 above.

6 – The winner is the first player to reach or exceed 2014 points.

7 – In the event that a single death pushes more than one player beyond the victory score the winner will be deemed to be the player with the highest overall score.

8 – In the event that a single death pushes more than one player beyond the victory score and a tie remains between the winners, a sudden death play-off will ensue between all potential winners.

8a – The sudden death play off involves all possible winners waiting until one player scores another death of a team member. Said player will then be declared the winner. The sudden death play off will continue until a single clear winner emerges.

9 - For the purposes of the Deathrace the same rules about eligibility of team members apply as apply in the DDP, which is obvious anyway cos we’ve been using those rules from the start of the Deathrace competitions.

10 – ‘Obit’ in the context of the Deathrace means any report from a reliable news source in English. In this context the following are admissable: ‘Newspaper obits, national newspaper reports, local newspaper reports, coverage in trade journals or similar specialist publications. Coverage in widely accepted sites monitoring super-centenarians. In all cases evidence online from these sources is sufficient to count for an ‘obit’ for scoring purposes. In the event of a debate about a ‘reliable news source’ MPFC’s decision is final. But he is very reasonable and quite likely to award points to the lowest hanging fruit.

11 – To qualify for points all team members must be alive on January 1st 2014 or qualify for the Raymond Hewlett Memorial Exemption (RHME) - see point 11a below:

11a – In honour of everyone’s favourite Maddie-implicated paedo-scum the Deathrace operates a policy of awarding 365 points to any candidate widely believed to be alive on 1 January and subsequently discovered to have been deceased when the pool opened. To qualify for such a bonus said candidate must be reported dead in the year of the competition. In the event that an obit counting news report adhering to Deathrace qualification for points is subsequently discovered to have been published before the commencement of the Deathrace all points for the candidate are voided. In the event that the RHME is invoked after the award of the Deathrace championship all that will be offered are hearty congratulations. Once a winner is declared, the result and prize will stand.

11b – In the event of disputes over rule 11a MPFC’s decision is final, but may be appealed by anyone attending a DLCon and supplying MPFC with foaming ale whilst appealing. The decision won’t be changed but MPFC will greatly enjoy the free beer.

13 – If any team is found to have used Deathlist editing options to subtly change the line up of their squad instant disqualification without appeal will follow and MPFC will not be held responsible for any abuse heaped upon said cheat by other posters.

13 – The winner will receive a prize as follows:
A: Should the winner attend the next DLCon MPFC will personally offer a single measure of an alcoholic drink of choice (beer/wine or spirit) along with much back-patting and hearty congratulations.
B: If A is not possible MPFC will offer an item from his extensive collection of duplicate Carlisle United merchandise kindly donated by relatives who forget he already owns said books, scarves or pork pie hat.
C: If option B proves unattractive MPFC may be suggestible, via PMs, to offer summat more suitable. Previous prizes have included a DVD copy of the original Death Race 2000 movie.
D: Three out of four previous winners have opted to waive any personal prize and ask instead for MPFC to make a charitable donation in honour of their victory. This kind of thing gives dead pooling a good name and is highly encouraged by MPFC.


Other General Stuff:


1 – After the closing date MPFC will post a masterlist of entries.

2 – The scoreboard will be updated at least every ten days. Help in notifying this thread of deaths and posting links to qualifying obits will be greatly appreciated.

3 – On declaration of a winner the thread should be allowed to sink into oblivion after hearty thanks have been offered to DL admins for their tolerance.

Reet, apologies for starting the thread twice but if I post-whore here it'll drive the thread up the list, again. That'll ensure the other Deathrace 2014 falls down the list and this thread will get dragged back again when someone posts a team entry.

Eyes down, look in, or summat.

Godfrey Stafford the Physicist, right?

If so, you might want to reconsider that pick in the light of his death last summer. The Raymond Hewlett clause wouldn't apply in his case.

Damn

I apologise and would like to substitute Les Munro in the place of Godfrey Stafford.

It was very rude of him to die without sending me an e-mail.

Thank you for pointing this out.
