In the spirit of Murmas, I wish to run a quest, and seek sponsorship for the quest rewards.
Rewards thus far:
1 Voice stone (donated by Burns)
6 Heat stones (donated by Lintara)
630 Iron Ore (donated by Fang Archbane)
6 gold coins (donated by Treasury - 3 to first, 2 to second, 1 to third place)
1 Petrify stone (donated by Jubaris - for the scariest entry)
As it were that Murmas approacheth, so must good spirits.
Thine quest were so:
Write a Murmas poem, or song, or chant. Thine offering must rhyme, and reference the realm in some way, either of the land, or its beings, or otherwise.
Magic-speak, or archaic-speak, is encouraged, as were wit, and humour, for which further reward should be bestowed.
I seek an offering that may bring mirth and cheer to others this Murmas, which were that which above all must affect the final judgment.
As to the length of thine submission, there remaineth no limit; yet, one must remain entertaining throughout.
Of judgment thereof, such were that of each of the following, a score of up to ten points should be given:
1. For magic-speak, or archaic tongue, or other mystical construct
2. For rhyme and prosody
3. For mirth, and wit - and for this, a double scoring.
4. For support of those of the realm, that were not scored of the judges.
I shall accept submissions, within the realm, or within this forum, and they shall be anonymous until they are scored.
I would like to have the entries in by Murmas, yet, I know that the other-realm doth pull one away at that time, and so, I shall accept submission if it were late. These may be given to me within the realm of Mur, or within the forum of Mur, afore the great Murmas celebration.
This quest is built of 3 parts. The first person to complete part 1 will cause the reveal of part 2 to everyone when/if they complete part 2. Same with part 3.
Part 1: Build a spider web.
Part 2 revealed by Faceless: Capture an image of a real spider on your web.
You can build it out of any materials you like. No drawings, only builds.
Please take and post a photo of your spider web and ensure there is a piece of paper in the image with your MD name and the date on it.
Prizes depend on how you play.
Part 3 is a live event and will be held sometime from the 28th of October. If nobody reaches part 3 by then...that part won't happen.
I'm looking for people to host/organise quests for this coming Halloween (31st October), if you are interested, please let me know and I will add you to the ongoing discussion.
As the 31st is a Monday, I was wondering which of the three options would the majority of public prefer; quests held/beginning on the Friday, Sat and Sunday before Halloween (28th,29th & 30th), just the Monday (31st) or for the entire week commencing 31st?
A few of the quests planned already will take longer than a day to complete, so quests that can be completed in shorter time-spans would be greatly appreciated!
If you require help organising/planning or sponsoring quests for halloween, feel free to give me a message!
Ladies and gentlemen, here's a new quest for all of you.
It's a chance to obtain a headless skeleton, but most of all a chance to unleash the dark side of your creativity.
You have to create/design a new undead / build-able creature.
So, first of all you need to put down a list of the ingredients you're going to use.
You can use only items or resources already existing in MD.
That said, all categories can be used: resources, common items, personal items, default items… everything, but already implemented.
You can use these lists as official reference on what's on the market right now: Items, Resources.
Second, once you have the ingredients and all the needed quantities, you have to detail all the steps of the procedure (the recipe, if you wish) to obtain such a creature.
Third, your creation needs a name and an image; therefore you have to draw the result of your experiments and name it.
The drawing must follow these rules:
1 drawing per submission, hand-made, original (not copied), black/white, MD noted on one corner - NO player name, NO player ID.
Submissions are to be sent to me via forum PM, not posted on the forums.
I will act as a filter and forward your submissions to 3 judges (unaware of the authors).
All participants will receive either an unholy priest or a tormented soul.
Main rewards will depend on the n° of participants:
if n° < 10: best submission gets a headless skeleton;
if n° > 10: best submission can pick either a WP or a headless skeleton, second best submission gets the remaining one.
if n° > 20: … surprise!
Deadline: 31 May at midnight.
If you wish to judge this quest, please send me a forum PM.
