Hello world!

We had an awesome pvp-event during 31th anniversary festival or whateverish it
was. I bumped into this (in finnish only, sowwy): http://www.vauhtijuoksu.fi
which basically is a annual speedrun event.

Well, I started pondering how one could have a speedrun done in BatMUD and
while it probably could be arranged already, it might require some help from
our devs, to give us a challenge that would eliminate the acquired totals and
eq and that would rely solely in game knowledge and luck (and trigs).

I'm not intending to start giving instructions on how one would
define/arrange/code it, but since Bat-community has begun live streaming stuff
in Twitch and such, maybe it could work for streaming too. Instead of watching
someone go full ret... err, i mean barsoomian and soloing 10M of exp during 8
hour stream, ppl might get more out of 1-2 hour stream on how someone tries to
beat the speedrun record.

In case you need more of an idea what I mean:
A challenge that could be taken part by anyone, despite what client they use
or what character they play.
When challenge would be started, one would be given a "temporary character"
with predefined exp and some character building options, and challenge would
be done when player reaches the target (target kill? exp amount? something
similar to nuns' holy battleground?)

Maybe people can throw in suggestions if they like the idea
