Mini-MFO The Hunt for the SoJ

Sorry it took so long, but life is unpredictable.

Short, short version of rules:
Kill Andariel over the weekend and keep all unique/set jewelry. Add points to see who wins.

The rules:

0 (the implied rule) - If thou reads this, THOU MUST BY ALL MEANS TAKE PART ON IT!

1- Start Friday (the 10th) whenever you want and ends 60 hours later (2 1/2 days).
Start 8:00 AM Friday, End 8:00 PM Sunday
Start Noon Friday, End Midnight Sunday
Start 7:59 PM Friday, End 7:59 AM Monday

2- No subscription fee! The winner(s), there may be two, will add to the Mini-MFO trophey case.

2.1- SPF Members only. As a member of the SPF, thou must fulfill at least one of the following pre-requisites:

- Post an intro thread
- Frequent EMB
- Blame Durf

2.3- The categories are Hell Andariel and Nightmare Andariel. Thou shalt clearly state which one(s) thou competest at by posting it properly at this thread.

3- Thou shalt kill Andariel in your category(ies) until thy eyes melt, and horde thy spoils.

4- Thou shalt NOT post your findings prior to the ending.

5- Thou shalt, when it is over, send to jjscud at the following:

- Thy forum name.

And for each category:

- Thy character info (class, build, level, %MF).
- ATMA readings of thy 5 rarest findings from Andariel during the valid period, containing all item information, including - but not limited to - fingerprints. Only set and unique rings, amulets and charms are valid entries, so thou knowest.
- Thy total points, added properly as explained below.

5.1- Thy info MUST be sent up to 36 hours after the end of the competition.

6- The competitor who gets the highest score wins. Rarity shall be measured by a list for each category where each valid item is followed by a number that indicates how rare it is (the bigger the number the rarer the item). Add the value of thy five rarest findings to get to your final score for each category you play in. Do NOT mix different categories!

6.1- If a tie occurs, the competitor who found the most SoJs wins

6.2- On a second tie, rarest find unties, then second, and so forth up to the 5th.

6.3- If the tie persists, then it is a draw.

7- No items shall be claimed from winners at this edition. Finder's keeper's, if thou preferest.

8- Thou shall NOT identify the items thou intendest to apply to thy victory. ATMA is reserved to give thee the pleasures of thy finding, not Deckard Cain. IDed items willl NOT be accepted as valid entries.

8.1- Optional rulings shall be reserved for MAC users and other special cases.

9- Doubts, subscriptions and further suggestions shall be posted in this thread for everybody's knowledge.

10- Thou wilt have fun!

11- Also, bragging rights to the player that finds the most Carthan's Seals.
