To kick off the New Year:

[11:37]<" rel="nofollow - Alain >I wager that this year or the next will see a SIN-style formal land claim in Elgea by a top-20 alliance

Anybody willing to take me up on this wager?  Stake to be determined...

If the stakes get high enough, I'm willing to try to get nCrow to make such a claim, if you will go halvsies with me on the proceeds.  Can't guarantee they'll go for it, but if the wager involves cows, I'll be highly motivated to make it happen.

Edited:  Apparently there were some people who are underestimating the number of cows I would require to go for this.  You may need to win the Powerball to make it feasible.

And I still can't promise my colleagues in nCrow will go along.

I put up 30 million gold and change the duration of the wager to just this year (i.e., the gold will be to the person who accepts the wager if I lose the wager).  I expect that my winnings would become due (i.e., should be paid) if and when any such land claim is established.

30 million gold is the amount of compensation I got from Harmless? following their siege and capture of Flying Fortress Five in Coanhara.  I have 30 million gold in escrow with Resi.

Any takers?

It's been nearly a half year since I posted this wager - bets are off now.

If I were to do this again, I would specify what was meant by a SIN-style land claim.  There are some unaggressive land claims out there.

Go ahead and specify. Perhaps some of the bigger alliances might be interested this time.

Care to specify which bigger alliances? I see none on the front page except SIN capable of enforcing anything and they already have a claim
