Okay, I cleaned house in the heirloom derby. So, for the sake of documentation:

(1 frisbee, 2 coatees, 1 epee, 1 levee, 1 humvee, 1 bungee, 1 filigree) - seven kinds of prize- this jives with the number of prizes previously in rotation (also seven)

ye olde frisbee

Back before cheap modern plastic frisbees, they were cherished and passed from generation to generation. And now it's reached your hands... hands that are now covered in toffee residue from handling it.

Well, that explains the mystery of ye olde frisbee construction techniques.

Heirloom Derby Speed Winner Reward

Ranged weapon (Archaic blunt) Power: 50 Item cannot be traded or sold Item cannot be auto-sold +1 extra ranged attack(s) per turn Better the longer it's been in the family --

ye olde coatee

Presumably old coats are just coates, because this coat is older than old. But it comes from a long and proud martial tradition, so maybe some of that will run off on you.

Heirloom Derby Speed Runner Up Reward

Shirt Power: 50 Item cannot be traded or sold Item cannot be auto-sold +2 weapon damage (ranged or melee) Better the longer it's been in the family

--

ye olde epee

An epee is a fancy sword for fencing that has nothing to do with your gaming prowess. It's of like a rapier, but less witty.

Heirloom Derby Mettle Winner Reward

Melee weapon (Piercing) Power: 50 Item cannot be traded or sold Item cannot be auto-sold +10% offense No weapon fumbles, ever. Better the longer it's been in the family

--

ye olde levee

Although not properly a berm of earth for holding back waters, this is a barrier of a different kind. And it can technically hold back water, along with all sorts of other things. Like electricity and self-doubt and that noise the kids call music these days.

Heirloom Derby Mettle Runner Up Reward

Offhand Item Power: 10 Item cannot be traded or sold Item cannot be auto-sold +3% resistance to all elements Better the longer it's been in the family

--

ye olde humvee

This ancient military vehicle is certain not to inspire a short-lived fashion craze. But it's pretty well armored, so you're unlikely to run into too many problems while you're driving it around.

Heirloom Derby Secret Reward

Transportation Range: 3 Item cannot be traded or sold Item cannot be auto-sold +1 damage absorption Better the longer it's been in the family

--

ye olde bungee

Man, do you remember attaching the canoe to the top of the car and heading out into the woods with your parents? Yeah, me either, but this bungee cord is great for bringing things back and, perhaps more importantly, not snapping under any circumstances.

Heirloom Derby Secret Reward

Miscellaneous Item Item cannot be traded or sold Item cannot be auto-sold Combat Usable Better the longer it's been in the family


--

ye olde filigree

When you need to make an object fancy, look no further than filigree. Fancy house? Filigree. Fancy sword? Filigree. Fancy book? Filigree. Fancy hero?

Heirloom Derby Secret Reward

Accessory Item cannot be traded or sold Item cannot be auto-sold +3% chips Better the longer it's been in the family

First time doing the derby last month, got the degree. I'll use it when I'm through with my current run. Not sure how I triggered it, if it helps I did an 18 mettle run without caffeine, sugar and the sidekick.

Hey, future self, we stuck around long enough to graduate this month and our understudy was super excited to show off the diploma. Included item: ye olde degree (quantity 1)

--Avenger (talk) 13:20, 20 March 2020 (PHT)

  • I just got the degree. I thought there was a hint in "stuck around long enough to graduate", so I did a 9-mettle heirloom run, but I stretched it out over 30 days. Sanjuro (talk) 22:06, 1 June 2020 (PDT)
  • I didn't mention my run length and when I ended it last time, my bad. Anyway, my run lasted 17 days and ended on the last day of the month, so the degree probably has something to do with "sticking around" past a set number days and talking to Susan just before the month ends.

Also, I got the humvee and the bungee. Pretty sure the humvee is the reward for doing 2 runs with one of the heirloom derby items. As for the bungee I am not so sure, from the message I think it's with having joined the heirloom derby more than 3 times? This is the only thing I can think of that I did differently with this month's run. Avenger (talk) 18:20, 2 June 2020 (PHT)

I consistently got the bungee with five or six derby runs in one month. I did get a humvee on an alt with just one run in total, but that run also won highest mettle (epee) and fastest (frisbee). Humvee might simply be for winning multiple best/runnerup mettle/speed categories. I think the secret behind the degree is simply getting to level 12, regardless of how long it takes. I've gotten the degree on 4 and 5 day runs that way. --Penguinpyro (talk) 17:54, 2 June 2020 (PDT)
