Racing Clubs

Members of the Free Enterprise community have established some regular race times and flagsets when there is not also a tournament running. The various clubs each focus on a flagset or experience, and between them all give players a wide variety of ways to experience the game.

The races and clubs are all open to everyone to join, and you do not have to join the event (via using the listed Join Command in the #bot-commands channel in the Discord) in order to race in any of the races. Joining the event allows you to earn points in the event itself, so you can compare your performance in the event overall, as well as individual races.

Pink Puff League

Just starting out in Free Enterprise and looking for others to learn with? Want to play a seed in a fun group setting? Have you ever wanted to get help from someone else on a really rude boss while you’re playing! Well, you’re at the right place! Welcome to the Pink Puff League, a community club specifically designed for new and less-experienced players of Free Enterprise. Come hang out and learn the ins and outs of the randomizer while starting your journey to becoming a Free Enterprise Legend!

Baron's Hero's Journey

Baron's Hero's Journey aims to create an experience as close as you can get to a single player rpg experience in the bounds of the free enterprise randomizer, creating themed flagsets that have the protagonist face challenges and objectives that are themed to their character, or story in Final Fantasy Four. Most of the flagsets will have nodupes and permajoin to recreate that feeling of “classic rpg party” in which the characters become friends and grow and tackle the challenges together as a team. But one way or the other, all flagsets have been balanced to try and give a full experience under two hours on average.

The flagsets have been rated from one star to ten stars in order to show intended difficulty, where full ten stars is something closer to ZZ4 in difficulty. Every character will have a meta objective that the racers must try to meet to the best of their ability to keep the competitive integrity of the race. Some might be flavorful, but some might change how the entire game is played! The racers that meet these objectives, in order of first, second, and third, will get to pick the character for next week! But they can't pick characters two weeks in a row. The day flagsets are announced, an async will be opened for a week so people that can't make the race time can experience the flagset and/or get some practice in for the live race. Only the live race will count towards your club points.

From The Perspective Of

Each race in this club is designed to represent the events of the vanilla game from the perspective of a specific playable character. Thus, the flag set will change each week to reflect that perspective. The perspective character will always be the CHero character and will not be available elsewhere in the seed. But all other flags (including win condition) will change as appropriate.

Music Appreciation Club

Restreamed community club focused on, well, Appreciating Music (in the context of FF4 Free Enterprise)! Generally speaking, every seed will have you starting with our favourite bard, Edward, and completing the entire TwinHarp cutscene to experience the added randomized music. How you get there, and how you finish the seed, will change depending on the week: each race will feature different flags, where each flagset has a music-related theme or origin.

Tricker's Trials

A club designed to test your knowledge, skill and endurance, these seeds will be rolled with the lit3novintage preset, which does exactly what you think: It is exactly identical to the lit3 preset with the sole exception that the vintage flag is forced off, because while Tricker loves issuing devilishly difficult demands, they acknowledge the importance of accessibility.

The 99 Percenters

This async club will attempt to combine three things: 1) Mystery seeds 2) Legacy-style changes from week to week 3) A place for people to learn with less challenging settings

The club is an async mystery club with one race per week. Asyncs will be opened on Tuesday mornings and closed on Sunday evenings. The closing time will be announced when the async is opened and reminded on Sunday mornings. Monday is to give people time to message me and for me to process the week.

After each week, runners that participated in the async can choose one line already in the yaml and increase the number by an amount that depends on their finish. First place gets to add 1 to a number, second place adds 2, etc., and anyone finishing 20th or later gets to add 20 to a number. Anyone that forfeits adds 1 to a number.

Film-Friends

Film Friends seeds will be each be themed after a movie from the 1980s, with Free Enterprise characters filling the key roles, and objectives laying out the story of the seed. A brief narrative shall be provided each week including the plot order of the objectives (the Free Enterprise seed generator will reorder the objectives based on its own criteria). The film being portrayed by the seed will not be identified, and the runners are asked to avoid discussing the film/cast/plot details in the film-friends channel or in the specific race channel to avoid spoiling the answers for others who have not yet run the seed. Runners are encouraged to discuss details of the film (including its title, the parts being portrayed by Free Enterprise characters, the plot points represented by various objectives/flags, etc.) in the post race thread after playing the seed.

Frantic Five

The last few months of requiring all objectives to obtain a crystal meant doing all the things all the time. That was a lot of work, so let’s take a break and just do some of the things instead! But one optional objective is boring. How do we fix that? More choices! 10 objectives, pick 5, beat a butt, and you win!

Sounds easy, right? Well, can’t quite have that. You’ll get a workout running around the world, the moon, and back looking for those key items, if you even need them! Boss hunts and normal quests are back to say hello, so go mode could be quick and early. Cmaybe means the guy with the sword or Mr. Moon Man might be taking a vacation, so traditional Z parties may not be available. Spro rears its head to make 1200 and Eddie strats just a little more complicated – gotta find those items! Finally, don’t forget to channel your inner loot goblin, as Pchests and Twildish are a heavy incentive to grab boxes to your heart’s content!
