Happy MD Birthday! Is this the 12th one? Wow.
!2 years since MD Came into existence. THough the population has declined, the spirit remains the same!
And as the Topic Title Says, The Arrogant, Stuck up Queen Returns!
I shall be the Queen of Sheba for One day Tomorrow and Like last year I shall host a variety of mini quests with rewards.
THere will be a total of 10 mini quests at random times in the Day. And here goes the reward list:
Every Quest winner will get an individual reward like an item or coins or resources and stuff like that.
Apart from those:
winner of 3/10 quests - 1 gold
Winner of 7/10 quests - 11th anni Barren + 1Gold
Winner of all 10 quests if any - 1 wishpoint + 11th anni Barren + 1Gold.
If Chewett or the Treasure keepers can be so gracious* as to give a 12th anni creature this year for rewarding purposes, It'd be great. Will reward it to the 7/10 won quests category.
PS- This Quest will be held only if I get teleported out of the Island tonight
1. Take a screen shot of the GOE scene and decorate it. Once you are done, post it in the forum thread regarding the quest. END TIME - 20.16 MDST winner : john rothmaker, Rewards: 5sc
2. Using only items available in MD, craft a recipe for a delicious three course meal. Post your entry on the forum thread. END TIME - 0800 MDST 15th April
Link for when this becomes ancient history and nobody knows what I'm talking about
To be clear, I 100% agree with Chew's statement here. Fang added nothing (or very little) to the discussion in that topic. However:
I'll put all my cards on the table here (at least in one of my hands), so I can hopefully make my point more clear: I was 13 when I started playing this "game", and I'm 22 now. You have all watched me grow into an adult (whether you realized it or not) and not only watched me but sculpted me. So given that, here we go:
As a younger man, I found it much more easy than I do now to engage with my passion for justice in MD. That's what I believe Fang was doing in the topic in question, and I don't think that should be shamed or stopped, at least not from an administrative standpoint such as the one that Chewett represents (whether he likes it or not, I should say), because (to be quite blunt) doing stupid things is how one grows and learns, and if it's somehow seen as "against the rules" to be passionate in the way that Fang was, I think it would be to the detriment of MagicDuel as a whole, based on how much I grew by being allowed to spew my own brand of BS back in the day (and even right now, what you're reading will probably be BS to me in the future). Sure it clutters topic and bothers everybody to read, but that's what the reputation system is for, and it's not like we have a lot going on here right now anyways.
That being said, I'd love to learn your thoughts, and I'm making this a topic rather than a PM because it's ultimately up to you: Do you want a slightly censored and more convenient forum utopia where everybody has positive rep, or an open forum where things get stupid, annoying and messy?
NOTE: I'm not casting blame or anger at Chew. Just want to make that especially clear.
Roll up, roll up!
Welcome to a new series of quests, made to frustrate and test your skills in various areas of expertise!
Each month I will be unveiling a new quest with different rewards and prizes, some will be small and some will be large, but all will be just as annoying (or fun, for some) as the last!
To view the current month's, active quest in more detail, simply go to the GoE and tell the lower right tile to "Puzzle me!", then simply follow the steps from there!
But, to kick things off, the first quest shall be...
'A puzzle or four!'
Description: Four puzzles have been placed in various locations in the realm. Using hints provided, you must find the locations and complete the puzzles. The one that completes the quest the quickest (in it's entirety) will win one wish point.
Instructions: Check GoE for starting details. Once a puzzle is completed, PM (forum/IG) the completed image along with it's correct Co-Ordinates and (if it has one) location name. Once that has been received and verified, you will then be given the next clue to the location of the next puzzle.
One account per player only. You will have 3 attempts per scene to give correct name and/or co-ordinates. Failing 3 times with any one scene will result in 'game over', so think carefully. Don't get annoyed at me if you think these are annoying (I got annoyed at me), you join at your own risk! Prizes:
Player to complete in the quickest time will receive 1 Wishpoint.
Final entries to begin the quest will be 23-01-17, 00:00ST and all final submissions 30-01-17, 00:00ST
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!
[b]COST FOR BUBBLES:[/b]
-The first bubble is free of charge. Pass by or send me a message, and I will either give you an ITC, or if you idle at the way, I'll pass it directly to you.
-The next bubbles require that you complete a quest of my choosing. These could be hard, or easy, or medium. But they'll most likely be bizarre and odd and creative, so be prepared.
[b]ARCHIVE OF PAST QUESTS[/b]

10. Find geometrical shapes in the World Map (given to falronn)
11. Marind discussion (given to Maebius)
Proof: [spoiler] The simplest answer of course would be to repeat Mur's post on forums regarding MArind being a fragment of our own childlike Dream-self, who had died because we grew up. Yet, I think otherwise.
Marind may represent us, still, but she has not 'gone' away. We've only forgotten her. Plus, since the realm has a bedroom and a Land itself named after her, I think there is a similar aspect in her having personality beyond our own. (like the creatures are described in tutorial.. independent, but bound to our spirit too)
In this regard, and based on clues with certain Stories I've overheard, I think that Marind exists "in our Past", in terms of memory and the somewhat 'physical' concept of time... and she also still lives a half-life within the realm, somewhat like the Shades exist, but are not generally present to encounter in our travels.
