  1. Ok, deadline extended to the 29th of Dec. I have been quite busy and I realised sometimes people need more time (even if I announced it almost three weeks ago) Prizes: 1 acousticremains and 1g 5s for first place 1 teletoPC and 1 g for second place 1 voice and 5s for third and fourth place
  2. Soo...first place gets a Nutty! second gets a Santa, third gets an angien. Its name just so happens to be Maebius.
  3. Soo...for now, 1st place gets one Santa and 1g 2nd place gets a set of 3 LR archer totems (the b&w version) and a brilliant diamond 3rd place gets 1g 5s. I extend the deadline to 30th dec, but not any later.
  4. Mkay, on the 24th I have some plans which will keep me in a train for 6hrs or so. Wi-fi and all, I prolly won't be able to 'run' quests. So I was thinking of the 25th (late evening)? (it won't be so easy, at least two sets of pictures will have you stare hard at the screen muhahahaha) For now, 1st place gets 1g, one Earfocus stone and a brilliant diamond; 2nd place gets 1g, one Sharp; 3rd gets 1g.
  5. I sponsor this with 1 gold coin, 1 bottle of wine (60 uses) and a piece of anniversary cake from last year (MD kake really stands the trial of time), for Mago to distribute as he sees fit. Also, normally, sponsors cannot judge, but if you are fine with an illiterate in cooking like me, I can be that judge. (I will fully disclose the way I awarded points to anyone who asks, for complete transparency). I also believe the winner should be knighted as Knight of the Bacon Table.
  6. (quick off-topic: why is this in heated discussions? I assume it's 'what do you want for xmas in MD?', since it's in the general forum and not in off-topic, but I'm not sure...) I want...to have some fun
  7. Can't edit the initial post, so here are two more links: http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/18035-whos-that-guy-reloaded/ http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/18034-santa-goes-underground/
  8. Here's another challenge to those of you who're creative. Fuse Santa with another (in)famous character! (of some antiquity - say, Robin Hood or Emperor Nero) Shortly describe the new persona (or draw it), also detailing what he/she does and add one or two stories involving the character (100-200 words for the stories). Last day of submission: 24th Dec. Post your character here, because prizes will be awarded based on forum reputation only. UP votes will count more than DOWN votes. (will update the thread with prizes)
  9. Since I am the kind of guy that gets inspiration from everything, reading about the Golden Lily Operation gave me an idea for a contest (what can I say, god works in mysterious ways...). This will probably run on the 24th (or maybe even 25th), in the evening. The story is that Santa has hidden his sack somewhere and now has to dig to get it. The exact location of the sack, however, is unknown, so he has to dig and dig...and dig. The participants will be divided into two teams, given five minutes to decide on the route and the initial position of Santa and then go for it, announcing number and letter (example: square B2). Between the moves, each team has a 2 mins deliberation time (in case they decide to go for another route). The first team to find the sack (which will be hidden on a square somewhere on the last two lines) wins. The 'map' is small, (5)6x6, so it won't take long. Santa cannot move diagonally. On the way, you will find obstacles and extra bounty. Things like silver and gold mean extra bounty, a reindeer cart will give an additional turn, while the wine bottle will substract one turn. The mole is giving an extra square to Santa, never diagonally, and Rudolph does nothing...well, it does ask you for a cracker. While you choose the squares, I will have a map similar to this one and will tell you where you landed. Max participants per team: 5; I don't know what will be the general participation, but I can't accept more than 5 per team, so if you want to have a certain place in the contest, write your name in this thread. (Will update the post with rewards) I am also attaching an empty 'map' to use during the contest.
  10. I will run this on the 24th or 25th, depending on your preference. It will be a forum race in finding the original scene among scenes that have additions. More specifically, for set 1of images (name_1) you have to find the scene that was modified; for set 2 (name_2) you have to find the scene that wasn't modified whatsoever and for the third set you have to find the scene that was modified. rewards be here sample here
  11. maybe it is but no, I want to make a couple of quests that have to deal with this character
  12. I'm not at the age where I can receive gifts from Santa anymore (although I write him yearly, asking for a winning lottery ticket), so I've forgotten all about it. I suppose once you don't get your free gifts anymore, you don't care. This year I asked myself - who is that guy? One answer is 'the reason why shopping malls and stores are filled with moronic items and fake discounts to create mass consumer hysteria, akin to black Friday where servers shutdown from overload (NOT, just a marketing strategy) and old women trample each other to death for a 20% off to pans'. Another is 'the hostage to Coca-Cola ads, who managed to create such a brand that inmates condemned to lethal injection (this includes murderers of the worst type) ask for a coke before death'. Yet another is less practical and involves me knowing that Asians also have their guy, called Budai or Hotei, who's basically a chubby man with a sack full of goodies and sweets, who pays excessive attention to children. It would be easy to say that Budai is a 'type' of Buddha, but what if the myriad types of Buddha simply overlapped existing gods? What if there was a fat god who loved children and carried a sack with goodies? What if Santa Claus is universal and it's based on an archetype of a cheerful man who loves children, not because he's a deviant, but because he couldn't have any, and so is kinder than parents normally are? Not sure, just speculating. But if that were true, then the holiday of Santa Claus would be a holiday dedicated to children everywhere, and, if you're an adult and receive a gift (lucky!), you can accept it with no worries (basically, a holy day where debts are not created as per usual). For most people, though, this holiness would soon be turned into a mass hysteria about getting the right present, hating the present you received, fighting other people over the 'last item my child wants so much' etc. Nothing can do about it, it's human nature to forget the meaning of things. Those who don't forget, can enjoy it, I believe. Wall of text aside, this topic has a role - I'm going to link here this year's Xmas quests, to keep things organized. http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/18031-just-visiting/ http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/18030-the-secret-base/ http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/18033-spot-the-difference/
  13. I don't know how crazy Santa is about photographs, but I'm sure he doesn't mind an album to reminisce the good ol' days. So let's do that - the task is to create such an album (6 images minimum) with Santa Claus visiting MD scenes (ex. making a victory sign in the Drachorn Cave, unloading gifts at GoE etc). What he does in those scenes is up to you (just...keep it decent). Submissions will be posted in this thread, and votes (up or down, love or...well, we don't have hate) will count. Last day for submission is 25th Dec. post will be updated with rewards here be answers to (your) questions regarding this quest
  14. (post will be updated with rewards, stay tuned) We have, more or less, an idea about Santa's residence in the outside realm, but what about MD? Where does Santa live all year round, to conveniently appear _only_ at Christmas? What does he do all year, how does he prepare for Xmas, does he live alone or in company, how does he keep himself hidden? Write a short essay (350 words minimum) in which you answer these questions, adding whatever you feel necessary to describe MD's Santa Claus. The last day for submission (by forum PM to yours truly) is 24th Dec. here be rewards here be added answers to whatever questions you have about the quest
  15. Happy birthday, Bash, and have fun!

  16. I know they don't answer/speak. I know it well, because I, too, didn't do it, wanting to do it all by myself. But receiving a message does work regardless. The main thing here is that you don't know what you're dealing with and are too proud to ask. How many times did you skip the tutorial, saying 'i'll get the hang of it by playing, no need to ask anyone, even if I make a few mistakes'? I know I usually do that, because most games are alike, with a similar system of fighting, getting resources, achieving things etc. This is why, after loitering around, rather confused, you hang on to that message you received (if you do). That doesn't mean you should be wandering aimlessly, so something should be done in this regard, but receiving a personal message is a (mild) incentive.
  17. I confirm for https://www.mmorpgtoplist.com/in.php?site=33450 and http://www.topmmorpglist.net/?v=magicduel-adventures
  18. this is a mild incentive: send private messages to players offering to help or pointing to the live help button (I received such a message from mya on my second day and it assured me there are people playing; also, due to the cramped interface, many buttons are not so easily spotted, such is the case of the LH button - and people might not use it even if they see it) describe the game: I think it's useful to tell people from the start that there are no monsters to fights here, no epic gear, the accent is put on research, patience and imagination (it mustn't sound elitist, though, because it simply refers to another way of doing things); I feel the kind 'lhos' would be helping new players play with the game tools throughout those waiting times (lintara is an example) describe the game 2: the first impression MD makes is not so great, but I liked the feeling the scenes had, and the pencil 'nostalgia', so I suppose some people will be impressed regardless; but as the scenes are 'desolate', so to speak, it would be important to point out to new players MagicDuel is a perpetual beta frame hiding some 'high-end' features, so the one who is able to push through the 'dull' frame will discover the gems now, I wrote too many words there, and the wording is not great, but i'm writing as I think about this, so...
  19. Happy birthday, ZenTao!

      Omfg happy birthday ZenZen !:D

  20. no one is being sensitive and sensible in this post (not villainous at all, mind you) 'cuz yeah, you tame the wild and make it yours, but I thought this is appropriate for MD crits - they're aspects of your mind that need tamed, no? (the mind that defeats the mind)
  21. Any adventure is beneficial. Anyways, i dont understand one thing - do we know how to get the altars functioning and someone is purposely refusing our solution or it's the opposite?

  23. I am dead Shades didn't get me, lashtal did...so now i'll haunt you all. (good post, btw)
  24. The one called Cariere.ro (i hope i got it right). It basically contained an interview about the game (and game creator)
  25. ...or how often they vote i think the article about mur in that business mag has also disappeared, but i'm not sure (have voted once or twice in the last couple months); i wonder if the online edition removed issues older than ( ) years. Also, someone reported about voievodate.ro and you even commented on that topic, a while ago (i remember, with so few posts lately)
