Rules

Here you find important information regarding the novisch period competition

Rule 1:

Do not break the law.

Other Rules:

There are 3 main ways for you and your team to earn points.

  1. Competing in our big events
    • Here you compete against the other teams to earn 100, 75, 50, 25 points. These are events such as ANO and others marked in the Novisch Period calendar
    • If your mascot is late, your team gets minus 1 point per minute, for a total of minus 15 points
  2. Doing Experiments
    • Here you take photos or videos of you and your friends, performing your interpretation of the experiments in the Experiment List. The more team members and the funnier the interpretation is, the more bonus points you can get!
  3. Doing Turfs
    • A Turf is a type of Experiment, listed in the Experiment List. Here you take a photo of a minimum of 4 team members, with the mascot+flag from the same perspective as the original photo. The original photos are found in the Active Turfs section. Each turf is worth 15 points, but bonus points can be awarded if additional team members participate, or if you do something cool/funny/spexy!!
Experiment Submission
  • Look at the Experiment List to find which Experiments has not already been done. Experiments can only be done ONCE PER TEAM, and is crossed over when all teams have completed said quest.
  • Read the Experiment description and make an interpretation of how it can be done in a funny way. If the description sounds impossible, for example, “Party with the eternal leader (Note, There is only one eternal leader)”, you should make an interpretation of the Experiment and perform it to your best ability. The better and funnier, the more points. However, if it sounds impossible, but also kinda isn’t impossible we do expect you to try LEGALLY. If your attempt is not deemed sufficient, the Pointmaster will answer your email with details of what is expected.
    • Turfs are a special kind of Experiment where you take a photo of at least four team members, with the mascot + flag from the same perspective as the original photo. A turf can only be taken once so you better hurry to get them before the other teams do!
  • Complete these Experiments by taking photographs, video, or other ways of documentation.
  • Send the photo/video to pointmaster@luna.lu.se
    • As the topic of the email put “ >team name<, >experiment number: experiment description<” (Just copy paste it from the quest list)
    • For example:
      • BUG,1: Work out the outdoor gym in winter clothing 5p
      • GLuFS,21: Adopt a pet rock 5p
      • LEMUR,40: Prove that the high ground is superior 5p
      • SNYS,9: Fence with the bulls 5p
    • Nothing more, nothing less
  • Check your email in case you get a reply about any issues with the submission
  • If you can’t send the video for some reason (file too big or otherwise) upload it to YouTube and email the link to pointmaster@luna.lu.se
  • If you are sending in a Turf you did you should put your team name that you are sending in as the topic of the email
Experiment Assessment
  • Each Experiment can be done once per team unless otherwise stated.
  • You cannot combine several quests into one submission, i.e one video covers more than one quest.
  • When an Experiment submission has been approved, your team can be awarded two types of points
    • Base point is the points that simply completing an experiment gives you. This is the value indicated in the Experiment List.
    • Bonus point is extra points awarded to you by the Pointmaster. The value of the bonus point is subjective, but doing an Experiment with more teammates, humor, the mascot, the flag and a funny interpretation of the experiment description leads to more bonus points. More difficult Experiments can often give more bonus points.

Sam

UPDATE: Hello all, it is I, I have returned from the depths of the computer with some expert help and have fixed the page. The experiments are now live Huzzah!
