  1. Yes. I'll just try to work on a final version before making entries public. However, if the authors are okay with it, I could forward them to you in advance.
  2. We have our final scores! To make things short, I'll report a the total score per judge here and send a detailed report with the judges scores and comments on each marking rubric to each player. If anyone else is interested in the detailed scoring, feel free to contact me and I'll gladly send them your way. Before making the entries public, I'll contact the authors to see if they would like to refine their entries. As soon as that is worked out and I get an okay from them, I'll post the final versions. So, without further ado: Entry #1 - Else on "Important Events in Necrovion" Scores Judge 1: 18/25 Judge 2: 20/25 Judge 3: 12/25 Total: 50/75 Entry #2 - Granos on "The Brotherhood (of Void Destinies)" Scores Judge 1: 16/25 Judge 2: 16/25 Judge 3: 14/25 Total: 46/75 Since Else also won in terms of "binary" judge victories (2 out of 3), I won't make any adjustments in terms of scoring bias. Therefore, that makes @Else our big winner, with @Granos as a close second! Congratulations to both and thank you again for participating! Unfortunately, we didn't have enough submissions to fulfill the WP requirement, but I hope you enjoy the other fine rewards. In the following days, I shall contact the winners with the codes.
  3. Archives are finished (until phase 2). There are a lot of lang strings missing in there.
  4. Following Aia and Syrian, I'll work on converting MDA today.
  5. Hello, everyone. Submissions are closed now. I'll send the two received entries to Kyphis and Chewett (additional surprise judge!) and the winner shall be announced within a couple days! PS: I know of one additional person who started working on a submission, but still didn't finish it. If there are others, please contact me so we can work out some reward for when you submit after the deadline, as I plan to make this a permanent thing
  6. Teleport to Paper cabin stone for me as well, please
  7. Current lang strings for the Lands of the East are finished. However, there are a significant number of clickie strings missing. Those will be left untouched until phase 2.
  8. I'd like to work on the Lands of the East.
  9. I remember Emerald Arcanix, a good friend and a true Seeker. From time to time, I recall our discussions and reflect on the impact that they had on me back then. I am sure that everyone lucky enough to exchange words with him will also agree that Emerald was one of finest minds you could come across in this realm. I hope that he is well and that someday I'll meet him again, quiet as usual, at Wind's Sanctuary.
  10. Hi, everyone! As per Ann. 5237, I tried listing everything I could find that took place right after the 15th birthday up to today. I know I missed some months, so please help me in updating this work in progress (also sorry if I added stuff from before the 15th birthday) I thought about sending a PM to Chewett but then I figured it would be better for us to work together instead of listing the same stuff on our own, so I made it public. I tried defining "major categories" for the events, but feel free to suggest other ways to organize those. Here comes the (quite big) list... -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "Realm-wide"

  11. Best times for me would be from about 17:00 to 23:00 ST on Sunday.
  12. First post was a Oct/2009 quest submission where I dressed as a Dark Archer (I'm glad the picture isn't there anymore haha). Been questing like crazy ever since. First PM was a Nov/2009 conversation with Pamplemousse regarding another forum post. That was shortly after (a month or two) she had left the Archivists to join the Sentinels and fight in the war that culminated in the burning of Khalazdad's cube. Young Aelis felt he was exchanging messages with a celebrity back then.
  13. Method + explanation In order to create a Death Anchor, we first need to come up with a way to locate the dead and make them stay in place. To do so, we will need special stone tablets which are made of locate and movelock stones. The combination of these spells manages to properly locate the dead and keep them in place for a while, and since the Dead are hard to keep in place, the movelock spell would not restrict them completely and they could still move if they wanted. Since we need at least 20 memory stones for a basic stone tablet, this one should require 15 movelock and 15 locate stones (due to its increased complexity). Those should be combined using the Loreroot Stone Tablet Combiner and we shall obtain a Death Handler (name pending). Now, this would certainly not be enough to keep the dead in place and avoid their collection. For that, we need to add something extra to the tablet. We’ll do that by binding the dead to that location using memories! Our main ingredient for this part will be Reality Shards: We bind these memories to the identity of the deceased by combining those with Wiiya (pure identity) using Heat and Syntropic Dust. Now we need to store that concept in something tangible in order to add it to the tablet. We’ll do so by using Fenths (pure matter) plus more Heat in the process. This should give us a Reality Anchor (name pending). Note that in order to handle Wiiya and Fenths, we need their associated tools: one Wiiya Bubble and one Reality Coagulator. As a final step, we mix the Reality Anchor with the Death Handler in order to obtain our Death Anchor (inactive). Note that this step should also require heat. Finally, since the tablet contains an extremely complex combination of spells, it should require at least 10 heat stones for activation. Before activating, drop your Death Anchor at a certain location (just move there, game mechanic-wise) and use the stones to activate it. Once it is finally active, watch it adapt to the memories of that location, interweaving those with the memories of the deceased and making them immune to being collected there. Note that once it is done, you cannot handle the Anchor anymore as it has already become a part of that particular place. Ingredient list 15 Locate stones 15 Movelock Stones 01 Stone Tablet Combiner (the LR one should do) 10 Reality Shards 01 Wiiya Bubble (not consumable. aka you get to keep it after the process) 01 Reality Coagulator (not consumable. see Wiiya Bubble) 10 Wiiya 10 Syntropic dust 10 Fenths 20 Heat stones (for all the heat involved in the process + activation) Other references:
