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.
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.
Seeing that there are few different kinds of water as a resource in MD and assuming that they are to have different uses perhaps the device at War Hold could be adapted with ability to interact with different kinds of water?
water - gathered from lakes, rivers - used in many activities (plant watering, tea brewing, some other recipes)
rain water - gathered from rain - atm not very useful (perhaps could be used for watering plants as well? it's kinda silly it can't be used that way)
mineral water - gathered from caves and mineral pools - (usefulness of it might be a completely different topic :P)
perhaps we also might have
sea water - gathered from sea - used in the WH device to get salt from it
now for the device at War Hold:
rain water + sand + heat = water (filtered or boiled to improve it's quality)
water + some kind of dust and/or gas = mineral water
lots of sea water + even more heat = water + little bit of salt
this is ofc just a rough idea, the final recipes should be more complicated,
but what do you think of that?
In reference to this [url="http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/11609-marind-bell-elections-voting/"]thread[/url] and on behalf of Kyphis the bard, Fyrd Argentus, and myself, I would like to announce the following:
- we have received votes from citizens of the realm to elect the Regent of Marind Bell
- we have counted those votes independantly, following the rules linked above.
- we have cross checked our results and considered we were in a position to announce a winner.
The winner with more than 80% of the votes is: [b]Princ Rhaegar[/b]
- 3 counts were made independantly by us and differed at the end by maximum 2 points
- this difference could be due to people not messaging all 3 archivists in charge of counting the votes, or bad count of Marind Bell citizenship
- with the clear result stated above, we did not investigate more
- around 30 votes were cast
- voters (and their votes) have not been shared with anyone else.
Issued as requested by Marind Bell's representants who tasked us.
