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.

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.
