DICE is the Dual Universe gaming commission.
We are made up of individuals from a variety of different DU organisations all with one common goal: to organize and officiate gaming and sporting events within Dual Universe.
Events we will be organizing include but are not limited to:
* hovercraft racing and leagues
* arena sports (like Flipmaze) and battles
* treasure hunts
* gambling hall games
Hovercraft racing will be a series of races governed by a set of rules. Open to anyone that meets the standards.
Proposed rules are as follows and open to discussion:
-- Racing registry - Only racers registered in the racing registry will be eligible to enter events. Each league (as civilization expands) may have its own registry,
-- 3 Strikes - Racers that infringe on a racing rule will first be warned, then suspended and then removed from their racing registry for subsequent infractions.
-- Leagues - As civilization grows, leagues will be created. Only the winners of smaller leagues (planet area sized leagues) will be able to compete in the system league(s) and only the winners of the system leagues may compete in the galactic league(s). Each with higher prize money. Only leagues recognised and approved of by DICE will be allowed to take part in the more prestigious bigger leagues.
-- Special event rules - Some events may alter some of the rules listed here. Each event will make such changes clear when the event is announced.
-- Entry fee - Each racer will pay an entry fee. The exact amount will depend on the event, but will usually be proportional to the prize money: The more the prize money the higher the entry fee. First prize will always be at least ten times the entry fee.
-- Size limit - Size of craft to be limited to the dimensions of a box. The dimensions are still to be determined. - "if the ship don't fit, you gotta quit"
-- Qualifiying rounds - These are rounds leading to the final. These are only required if there are too many entries than there are slots in the final race. Qualifying rounds will be a 'best out of three laps' time trials. The racers with the best times will go through to the finals. Times will be kept secret until all qualifiers have been completed when they are all made known.
-- No weapons allowed - No elements classified as weapons may be included on the hovercraft. No hand held weapons may be worn or used.
-- Single piloted crafts - Only one pilot per craft and the pilot must be seated inside the craft. No remote piloting is allowed.
-- No outside help - Once a race has begun, the racer may receive no aid from other players. This excludes aid from specifically appointed race officials.
-- Waypoints - A track will have a series of waypoints, each of which have to be driven through in sequence. Failing to do so will lead to disqualification. A racer may return to a missed waypoint provided the missed waypoint is still in the racers current lap and the racer must redo all subsequent waypoints in the lap,
-- Events will cycle between available approved tracks
-- DICE officials - Specially appointed DICE officials will officiate over each event. The officials rulings on the event are final and not subject to appeal.
-- Race tracks - Tracks will be built and owned by organisations outside of DICE. These tracks must meet the length and complexity guidelines as created by DICE (TBA)
-- Security - Event security (if necessary) will be organised by DICE
