Poem and Drawing contest

Recommended Posts

Some of you may remember a Poem contest Emerald organized at the Whisper Alley.
We played with the thought make it again, and turn it to become annual contest, a sort of tradition, and I decided to add one more discipline, drawing for start, later on perhaps even more, with purpose to encourage creativity and art.

The contest will probably start somewhere in the beginning of November, due to the Halloween festival that is coming up (don't want to mess with it).

Rewards will be at least 1 WP for best work in Poem section and 1 WP for best work in Drawing section, perhaps even more rewards if some sponsors come along the way.
It will probably be held at Whisper Alley in Marind Bell, and make it a traditional place of this gathering.

The reason why I am posting this now is for you people to get your works prepared so I can announce the hour of the contest meeting with more flexibility.

This is the theme of the contest:

Drawing: Make a drawing (with a pencil) about your interpretation of enlightenment. Make large "MD" initials in the corner of your drawing to show that it is really your drawing.
Poem: Make a poem about your interpretation of a seeker (as a general term).

Additional infos will be posted here afterwards, this is all you need to know for now.

I wish to sponsor your quest with a single shiny silver coin associated with a set of 4 or 8 raw glass (depending on what i can get).

It's obviously a small prize compred to your wishpoint, but if you accept it then maybe you could give it to the poem that presents the best contribution as far as semantic is concerned. :)

A question; will contestants be able to participate in both the drawing and the poetry part of the contest? If so, will they only be able to win one prize, or can they be awarded multiple? (In the rare chance that both of their works would be considered for such.)

They will be free to enter both sections - yes, they have a chance to win both of the first prize rewards.
In case of few number of participants, this case of one player winning two wish points will be avoided unless his/her works are that much above others (meaning, the winner in one section will have his work discriminated a bit in the other section)

The main purpose of this is, tho, to share our thoughts on the subject, pick up few "glory points" with our talent and such. :) Progress of our artistic thought.

New submissions will be accepted until Wednesday, zero hour, server time.

The meeting will most likely be in Saturday, but I will give more details when Wednesday comes. The main rewards will be there for all participants, but extra rewards (such as glass donated by Passant The Weak, angien donation by Phantom Orchid, and few spells from me by choice) will only be given to those that come, to encourage arrival of larger amount of people, this is after all supposed to be an MD event.

Meeting will be on Sunday 19 hours server time UNLESS the issue with the server is still present.

Meeting will take place at Willow's Walk. If you bring someone to "replace" your presence as a participant on the contest, you can still win one of the consolation prize, otherwise, you're contending 'only' for the main reward (WPs)

      I am looking for artists that can draw artwork for new items, quests, adventures, etc.
      If you're interested in helping with this, send me a pm and we'll discuss what is needed and compensation for your work.

      I currently have no knowledge how much it is or if it's even purchasable, but I would like to buy/acquire one for a project. Send me a forum message if you have an offer.

      Hey hey all, it’s been a while!
      Back when I started, I began to collect old avatars that I loved the look of, had a bit of history and generally didn’t want “wasted”.
      Now that I’ve been gone for a while though, and will only be back gradually, I think it’s time to open up the vault and let people take their pick.
      I’m not necessarily looking to trade these (though may choose to), feel free to state here or in pm (forum please) which one you are interested in and why, this will act as your “bid” I guess.
      If I feel like it’s a good bid and the reason is sound then it’s yours. If I don’t think the reason is great then it may come down to a case of trading...but I’ll try to be fair.

      Hello all!

      I wanted to bring up something I though has been a little unfair in the Heads Contest. I have been told it is unfair anyways, but hey. I thought this overstepped a little, and I wanted to bring it up. The problem I have seen is certain people, who are not in the Heads Contest, interfering with how it is running. This is mainly happening in two ways.

      One, as far as I heard, people from outside the competition should not be able to take the heads of those in the competition. This has happened twice to me, and is in fact the only times I have lost heads. The first was from an attack by Eon, and then the next in one of the attacks from a group of other people. I wouldn't normally care, except that in both cases I lost all my heads. I would count this more as a bug, or perhaps a problem with BHC competitions going at the same time.

      The second, and what I consider the more problematic and disturbing, is the use of certain spells and powers to influence the competition by people who are not participating. This one I have included the below screenshots for, to show proof of an event that happened today. It says in the Heads Contest page that the leaders will most probably hide, and we certainly were hiding, preserving our heads. But someone, which by the screenshots and information I have been told is most likely dst, teleported the leaders to the Gazebo of Equilibrium, where we promptly got beaten and our heads taken by people not in the competition. Beyond how this affects the scores of the people, it also artificially lengthens the competition, because we cannot advance and get to stage 2 as fast with less heads.

      Here are the screenshots, with the spell, the server times, and the UID of the person who casted the spell circled (I have been told the UID is dst)



      What are people's opinions of this? I know many consider the competition a joke because of certain fighters not being able to fight, since they have won, but shouldn't the competition still be followed instead of playing with the competitors like this? I also thought that spells weren't even allowed. I am genuinely interested in people's opinions and if there are in fact rules that are being broken.

      Thanks for reading!
